I used to really like wearing skirts and dresses, especially in the summer. I could throw one on with a pair of flip flops and instantly feel casual, comfortable, and pretty, not to mention cool, on a hot summer day. Then I had kids.
Suddenly a bunch of the things I used to wear without a second thought were out of the question. Jewelry? Not if I didn’t want to scratch my baby with a bracelet or watch. Heels? Ha! And of course, the skirts and dresses I used to enjoy became something that were only pulled out of the closet on special occasions. When your days are spent standing, sitting, crawling, running, squatting, jumping, bending, skipping, and a million other verbs as you chase your kids around, it’s just not practical to wear something that can easily show off an area you’d rather not reveal to the world.
So for the past few years my dresses and skirts have been pushed to the far reaches of the closet where they’ve lived in hibernation, rarely seeing the light of day. This summer though, they’re coming out of hibernation!
Since I recently updated my wardrobe, I want to be able to wear all of the cute clothes I have, but I also want to run around with my kids and do the fun summer activities they love. Thankfully, I’ve discovered that those two things don’t have to be mutually exclusive. Jockey® Skimmies® Slipshort is saving my summer.
What are Skimmies? They’re a lightweight slipshort that keep unmentionables hidden (I’m a modest girl!), panty lines in check (because no one likes panty lines), and static to a minimum (no more ShakeDown as I try to keep my skirt from creeping up). And did I mention that they’re really cool and comfortable? When I put them on the first time, I wondered if they’d be restrictive or make me feel sweaty, but they don’t at all. They’re kinda like your favorite pair of yoga pants, just hidden under your real clothes.
The other day was beautiful and warm, so I threw on a dress and my Skimmies and headed outside with the boys. Eli wanted to play soccer and Samuel wanted to swing, and I got to do both without worry. It’s going to be a great summer!
