I just placed my order. When can I expect my skirt(s)?
You can expect your order to ship within 7-10 days. If you order a custom or backordered skirt, it can usually be made and shipped within 14 days, but occasionally may take a bit longer. Our skirts are hand made in our flagship store in Vancouver, WA and in various towns in the greater Portland, OR area. We have a team of seamstresses that work from home who will make your order and we’ll ship it to you promptly. If you would like an update on the status of your skirt, please don’t hesitate to call the store at 360-904-9929 or email email@example.com.
How do I care for my Sweet Spot™ Skirt?
We recommend that you machine wash your skirt in cold water and hang dry. Body heat will usually iron out most wrinkles naturally in the first few minutes of wearing your skirt. If you do want to iron it to dress it up a bit, feel free… just don’t iron the resin snaps!
How does one skirt look good on so many body types?
It’s magic! Seriously, though, we’ve tested our skirts extensively on thousands of women and have been happily overwhelmed by the response. The skirts are meant to fit snug on the hips and the wide waistband flatters every figure. Skirts have been popular over the years and a Sweet Spot™ Skirt provides flirty and practical coverage for active women.
Is cotton good for working out? I sweat a lot…
Cotton is the most breathable fabric and allows the moisture to escape your body. Most workout tights/leggings are made out of wicking material. The skirts just need to breathe, allowing your body to stay cool. During our Research and Development stage, we tested the skirts while biking over 400 miles in 104 degree weather. They performed fantastically and had very little lingering wetness. Thousands of women have worn the skirts while running events, from 5Ks to half and full marathons, to Ironman races.
When you wear your moisture-wick shorts next to the skin, the cotton allows for air movement.
Can I run in the cotton Sweet Spot™ Skirt?
Many women across the nation run in the skirt. The cotton skirt is worn over the wicking tights, bike shorts or leggings and fits on your hips. We have found that there are a few body types, maybe 10%, that do not work well with the skirt while running. However, the versatility of the skirt with so many different activities still makes it a good choice.
What is the Fast ‘N Flirty?
We designed this skirt with running specifically in mind. It is made out of a nylon/spandex blend fabric with a cute scalloped edge that flatters most body styles. It is made in the same sizable design as our cotton standard skirts, with an addition of an elastic band with silicone to help stay in place during runs. You can wear the skirt over any length or type of running gear.
So there aren’t shorts attached to your skirts…?
Many companies make a skirt and attach tights to keep it in place. We prefer to design a skirt that stays in place without forcing our customers to be married to the attached tights. From a fit perspective, we’ve found when shorts and skirt are attached, one part is inevitably less comfortable and you’re stuck with both. With a Sweet Spot™ Skirt, you are able to wear your favorite tights, leggings, shorts (pads or no pads), swimsuit or whatever your heart desires underneath. This allows you lots of versatility and comfort!
From a style perspective, when you cover a stretchy skirt over stretchy shorts, the result can be too form-fitting and far from flattering. The cotton is much more forgiving and covers in a flattering and stylish way.
Are the snaps secure?
Snaps are guaranteed for life. It is rare, but if you have a problem with the snaps we will gladly replace it.
Can’t I wear my Sweet Spot Skirt for ________ (yoga, tennis, ultimate Frisbee, emptying the dishwasher, etc.)?
Yes- the list goes on and on! Check out our gallery for pictures of different ideas and styles. If you find yourself in a new activity with your Sweet Spot Skirt, post it on Facebook or shoot us an email. We love seeing happy customers in action!
Do you have any sales/discounts?
We made a commitment to keep our products “Made in the USA.” Since the inception of the company, we have hired unemployed women and facilitated their work from home creating skirts. We pay them well for their services and therefore do not provide many discounts. However, we do have two sales a year around Thanksgiving on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. We also have “One of a Kind” sales occasionally, where our gently worn tester skirts are sold at half price. We announce any promotions we are having on Facebook and in our email newsletters.
Can you ship to my country? I’d really like a skirt!
We currently ship to Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Mexico, United Kingdom and United States. If you live elsewhere, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see what we can do!
I’m a retailer. Do you have a wholesale program?
Yes, we have a website just for you: www.sweetspotskirtsDDP.com! It is easy to create an account and fill out a simple Dealer Direct Program application. Instructions are on the home page of the website. Once your account is approved, you will receive access to skirts, patterns and availability.
