Part 2 - Using the sizing charts I ordered my first skirt and it was 6" too big in the waist and 6" too big in the hips than their sizing chart reads!! [...] I was a perfect size 10 - 29" waist/40" hip. I ordered the size 10, [...]. When I tried it on, the waist was still 2-3" too big. The hips fit tho and the length was fine so I'm taking it to my tailor to be altered. It's a very nice skirt that can be dressed up or down and I got it a very low price so it's worth keeping and spending a few bucks on alternation.

Before purchasing this skirt I read the reviews and they all said true to size so I ordered the white skirt in my size. I've recently lost 35 lbs and dropped from a size 16 to a 10/12 so I ordered a 12 since the reviews also read form fitting. Well the skirt almost fell off me! I had about 4" too much in the waist/hips. So this skirt's size must be mislabeled. Needless to say the skirt is going back. [...] don't think it'll travel well. Overall I like the style, material, and like that the white skirt is lined, so I'll take a chance and order a size 10 and see what happens.

This skirt was a gift for my daughter. She is trim, but squarish with a wide ribcage and waist, so the waist of the skirt fits her well. But it would not fit someone with a smaller waist. I would recommend it with reservations.
