“I find the side pockets a bit deep and wide; makes it hard to reach small things that are at the bottom. And my skirt has 3 small front pockets (since I accidentally forgot to cut the bigger front pocket) and when I was jumping and running in my skirt I nearly lost my phone and wallet that were in the front pockets. So, I think 2 bigger front pockets would be more practical, but 3 pockets look better.”
