The Comfort Skirt Story
It all began when we travelled to Huddinge, Sweden for The Lion’s Cup Hockey Tournament. Early on, I noticed the Huddinge hockey mom’s wearing a certain long black, insulated skirt. It was slimming, yet it allowed the moms to move around the bleachers with ease. They wore it as a genuine piece of women’s clothing - no blankets sagging at their waists, no bulky snow pants.
I asked a local mom about it. “It’s the Comfort Skirt,” she said. “We wear it all the time over jeans, leggings, skirts or dresses. It protects you from the weather, keeps you warm. And it’s easy to put in your purse or bag.
8 of the 10 mothers in our group bought a comfort skirt. We wore them everywhere we went in Stockholm. We were never cold again. Then and there, I decided that I must bring this amazing fashion innovation to the forever-shivering cheerleader mothers of America.
I’m now the North American Distributor for Dobsom Sportswear – The Swedish Company behind The Comfort Skirt. Currently, I’m only selling The Comfort Skirt on my website, but I plan to carry the entire line. The Skirt which comes in sizes 4 to18 is 100% polyester. The Comfort Skirt system blocks outside wind with a Its knitted outer layer and thin insulating liner combines to create a breathable and weatherproof garment. The Dobsom tagline says it all: “En kjol som varmer,” or, “the skirt that heats.”
As a mother of four athletes, I’ll never suffer the freezing cold of metal bleachers, the grating chill of a hockey rink or even the brutal bluster of a train platform. Either worn or packed in my tote bag, The Comfort Skirt keeps me prepared.
Now, I want to share this wonderful discovery with the millions of moms who’ll endure rain, sleet, snow and wind in their undying efforts to be there for their young athletes. After all, happy moms make better cheerleaders.
