The vast number of PE skirts bought each year demonstrates the style is still a popular one amongst many PE departments and many students. Popular yet dynamic, the netball skirt has now morphed in style and shape during the last decade and the netball skort is now a stylish as well as practical addition to a girls P.E kit alongside shorts and skirts.
In fact the girls PE kit has broadened in its range to include the short, skirt and skort and now offers students the choice of clothing they want, rather than have to wear in sport. However, in spite of changes and developments within school PE kits the advice remains the same for girls as it does for boys. For maximum comfort and ease match the sport with the best fitting PE shorts or PE skirts and consider what factors are most important. Consider movement, durability and strength for example and then consider what style and colour you require.
For flexibility and greater freedom of movement on the netball court try a PE skort in a bi-stretch fabric. Or, if you want to wear shorts underneath opt for a single layer skirt in a strong, double stitched fabric.
For the keen footballer or rugby player shorts are a must and provide both warmth, ease of movement and a comfy fit. With elasticated waistbands, draw cords, side vents and lightweight fabrics most PE shorts will sit and move comfortably on the body.
However for a long lasting option choose mid-length shorts as these are a stylish option for both genders and are a suitable style for many different sports.
