Can You Skate In Skirts?

Skating in a skirt is a controversial topic for most people, and maybe you’re one of them. Maybe you skate in a skirt, or maybe you’re against it.

Skate in skirts?

It is possible to skate in a skirt. Though the most popular look for figure skaters is leotards, the International Skating Union does not have a dress code for female competitors—in fact, it doesn’t even require them to wear skirts.

If you’re looking to break into competitive figure skating and you want to wear a skirt, go for it! Just be sure to take care of your skin by wearing long pants or leggings under your skirt so that it doesn’t get scratched up when you fall.

Some figure skaters choose not to wear skirts because they feel like this gives them an advantage over other skaters who are wearing more restrictive clothing. In theory, this could give these non-skirt-wearing skaters an edge because they don’t face any wardrobe malfunctions while competing.

If you are wearing a short skirt, you can wear shorts underneath to protect you from minor bruises and scrapes.

  • Shorts under a skirt. Shorts underneath can protect you from minor bruises and scrapes that come from falling in your first few months of skating.
  • Leggings under a skirt. To prevent chafing, consider wearing leggings underneath a dress or skirt so that your legs do not get rubbed raw by the material of your clothing.
  • Long socks or tall boots. If you have long socks or tall boots, you can wear those to prevent the dress from riding up too far when you fall; otherwise, it is advisable to wear shorts underneath the dress for this reason as well.
  • Knee pads are also helpful if you want to avoid scrapes and bruising on your knees while riding in a dress or skirt but will make it more difficult to skate since they will add extra bulk and weight around your knees.

Wearing jeans and t-shirts would be best if you are a beginner because skin will be protected from scratches and bruises.

It is highly recommended that you wear jeans or a long sock with your skirt, especially if you are a beginner. If you fall and scrape your knees, it will not be as painful if there is material to break the impact of the ground. A pair of knee pads worn inside of your pants will provide extra protection to your knees and allow you to skate confidently without worrying about getting hurt. It’s also important to wear shoes designed for skating because they will have traction in order to prevent slips and falls on slippery surfaces.

If it’s cold outside, consider wearing jeans underneath your skirt so that your legs won’t get scratched up when falling down or if something happens while skating with others who may not know how to control their skates properly around you.

As you skate on the tiles, your wheels can slip off to the side and sends you spinning out of control.

You will have to make sure that you avoid skating in these areas because they could cause your board to get stuck and end up damaging it.

If you choose to try out skating in a skirt, however, there are a few things you should consider. Firstly, your skin must be covered. Not an option! With all of the falling that goes on when you’re learning to skateboard, you need to make sure that your skin is protected from all of the ground contact it will be making. Wear long socks and knee pads if possible. For extra protection, wear some jeans or long pants underneath your skirt—this will save your legs from scrapes and keep them warm at the same time! Additionally, always wear a helmet no matter what type of clothes you’re wearing when skating. Helmets can potentially save lives; don’t be like me and wait for a head injury before wearing one religiously (I’ve had three concussions).

For example, every country in the Middle East bans skateboarding except for Israel, which mandates that helmets and kneepads be worn at all times (1). Additionally, South Africa has banned skating since the 80s because of its supposed association with gang violence and drugs (2).

Another thing to keep in mind when skating in public is that you might have to be aware of any relevant municipal or city codes regarding moving on sidewalks. For example, some cities may require skaters to walk their boards on the sidewalk instead of riding them so that pedestrians can move freely past each other (3).

You can find out if skating is allowed in a particular area by checking the local government’s website or calling them directly. If you’re unsure whether an area allows skateboarding, always check with a team of lawyers before taking your board out for a ride.
