Why Run in Sparkle Skirts

* Sparkle Athletic sparkle skirts are super light weight & comfortable. The elastic waistband sits snug on your hips (ensuring it won’t move around on you), and is super stretchy (so if you’re between sizes, we generally suggest you order down).

  • * Our sparkle skirts are designed to be a “shell,” meaning you can wear your running skirt over whatever you already love to run in. We want you to be comfortable, so pair your sparkle running skirt with your favorite running shorts, compression shorts, or running leggings.
