Having a third child has not slowed me down like I thought it would. Nearly every day, I take my brood to a park, a playground, or the children's museum. It would be so easy to just slip on a pair of yoga pants and a comfy t-shirt, but it would be so unfair to all the adorable sundresses I own. But, man, is it hard to stay modest while wearing a dress and carrying a newborn, lifting and assisting an unsteady toddler, and chasing after a high energy preschooler. And y'all know how important my modesty is to me! Ha!
My secret? Shorts. I always have shorts on under my dresses. That way if the wind blows or if my hem gets stuck under a kid that I'm hoisting up, then no worries. I used to just throw on some bike shorts, but now that Jockey has introduced Skimmies®, I can save my bike shorts for the gym. I'd say these are best described as slipshorts-- they go on like shorts but do the work of a slip.
Skimmies® come in a ton of different colors, two different lengths (short and regular), and three different kinds-- original microfiber is great for every day style, anti-static work great with slinky skirts and dresses, and wicking is great for activewear.I like the original microfiber Skimmies® in the regular length.You guys! I love these! Unlike bike shorts, Skimmies® are meant to be worn under clothing. That means they're lightweight, smoothing, and they're not at all bulky. The waistband and leg holes don't roll, no matter how much running, chasing, and lifting of children I'm doing. Boom! Modesty still in check!
You're dying to try them yourself now, aren't you? Well, good news! Jockey is giving away 240 pairs of Skimmies®, so be sure to leave a comment at the bottom of this blog post telling me what you'd wear your Skimmies® under and enter the giveaway below:
