Shorts ? Skorts?

It's an embarrassing question, but I'm sure I'm not the only one.

I'm not overweight(female 5'6, 125#) BUT my thighs rub together when running.

What are compression shorts? it sounds like an old fashion girdle...yuk!
Do you think a golf/tennis skort would be beneficial?

Thanks for the advice.

Hello there,

I'm probably not the best person in the world to give you advice on this, but I read some running blogs where women rave about running skirts.

Just check the link below, and you'll see what I'm talking about. Hopefully, this is what you want.

Also, compression shorts aren't like a girdle. Pretty much every runner has problems with chafing and what not between their legs if they run often. You can also use a product called Body Glide. That stuff works very well for keeping your body from getting all red and roughed up. I hope this helps.
