Gear Review and Giveaway: Go Girl Sport

Go Girl Sport sent me their Toga Tank and Tuxedo skort to review and give away.  The timing was perfect since I needed something new and swanky to wear during my first race event of the year: The 13.1 Los Angeles the other weekend.

The Toga Tank lets you show your wild side with a full mesh back for superior breathability while providing enough coverage to satisfy your modest side. Seams are sewn flat and offset from tender areas to avoid chafing. The moisture wicking performance fabric keeps you comfortable even in the most challenging workouts.


The Tuxedo Skort Don't save this skirt for a black tie event! The Tuxedo Skort is great for racing, hiking or kickin' it at the gym - and destined to be a staple in your athletic wear wardrobe. This flattering design features a low rise waistline with a wide band to keep things smooth. Front and back mesh panels will keep you cool and pique the interest of those around you. Attached 3" inseam boy short has offset seams, sewn outward to avoid chafing.

My Review


Although it is technically still winter, it has been weirdly warm here in California.  Normally, when I run long distances, I would wear my tights for extra support.  But in this heat... No. Thank. You.  The top and skort that Go Girl Sport sent me to review was perfect for the sunny weather on race day. The fabric was very soft, lightweight, and breathable.

What I especially loved about the top was the mesh back. It kept my body cool and my back dry (and looking sexy too! Woot!).  This may be the right top for you if what you're looking for are comfort, functionality and style.

The skort also had mesh panels to help my "hotlegs" stay cool and perform well. In fact, I shaved of 6 minutes off my last 21K time. PR! Woohoo!  The elastic waistband wasn't uncomfortable around the waist like other skorts.  If you're looking for a skort you can use for running and other sports, this is a great choice!

As you can see, I really have nothing bad to say but I do have a suggestion.  The smallest size that they have is Small.  I would suggest a size extra-small for their products for us petite girls.  I'm 5'1" and my weight plays around 100 to 105 lbs.  I think the extra small size would fit me perfectly.  There are other runners, cyclists, surfers, etc out there that are tinier than I am so it would really be nice to have sizes for short and slender women.

Oh, before I forget, I have something to confess...

I did not test out the top and skort before race day because... well... I forgot.  Hee! :p  Once again, I have done it.  Wear something new on race day - a BIG NO NO!  Don't do this at home kids!



However,  I was lucky with the Go Girl Sport Top and Skort because I did not chafe anywhere.  Whew!  The smooth fabric felt wonderfully soft against my skin and kept my body at the ideal temperature.


I look pretty cool, right?  Who am I wearing?  Go Girl Sport, baby!
