There were many women’s apparel lines of interest for me at the 2019 PGA Merchandise Show. One such line that really caught my attention was called StarBorn Skirts.
StarBorn Skirts started in August of 2018. It was originally a running skirt company called SparkleSkirts and the owners decided to branch out to the golf industry. Based in Plant City, FL. the skirts are all made in the USA and they offer many different styles.
Skirts from StarBorn Skirts have different lengths because not all of us are the same height or like to have the skirts a certain length. There are three cuts of skirts being the tall, petite and regular length. The Tall is 2 inches longer in the short and skirt than the regular cut. They are for the taller woman or maybe just someone that wants a longer length.
Depending on the size you get the skirt length varies from 12.75 inches (2XS Petite) up to 19.5 inches (3XL tall). They vary the lengths partially based on your height and how long you want them. If these lengths are not what you like some of their skirts can actually be partially customized to allow up to an additional 3 inches for an additional fee.
All skirts have 2 6×6 pockets which are perfect for putting your phone or scorecard into for safe-keeping. There is one pocket in the leg of the short and the other pocket is in the back of the skirt. This makes it convenient to carry what is required
They have Flutter Cut and Casual. The flutter cut is a more fun type of skirt as it is kind of a “flirty” skirt. It has some little ruffles in it which gives it a more flowing look.
The skirts have “no ride” shorts. They have a patented short which are guaranteed not to ride up while you are playing. Personally speaking, I find skorts are horrible for that which is why I do not wear them. I don’t wear skorts often because I feel the shorts all ride up and I want to make sure that I have nothing “playing peek-a-boo”. When shorts ride up it feels almost as if there aren’t any and it makes me wonder why they are in there in the first place. Thanks to StarBorn Skirts that is no longer an issue.
One of the things I appreciated with this clothing line is their interest in bringing the next generation into the game. The game is starting to die and it is up to our kids and grandkids to carry on the sport. StarBorn Skirts has helped to start to make this happen by starting a line called StarBorn Girls.
Their clothing has a great “hand of fabric” to it. It is soft and has a nice stretch to it. There are a lot of nice prints to choose from as well as their standard (plain) designs. StarBorn Skirts also features unique patterns like their patriotic designs. There are “Star-Spangled Banner” and Canadian flag versions as well.
The company also designed skirts called Starborn Girls which is to be released today. (February 14, 2019).
I have to say the thing that I like most about this line is the fact they do skirts for charity. They have done charities for Nancy Lopez and Girls Golf. Both charities had designs custom made and with every purchase, 10% goes back to the charity.
I think if they keep going the way they are, I feel that StarBorn is going to rise quickly in the women’s golf apparel industry. I look forward to trying one of these skorts myself, they are a piece of clothing I would be willing to put to my comfort test.
Until The Next Tee!!
