It works! So pleased that I got every color -- great 3-season basic. Reminds me of Norma Kamali's rah-rah skirts from the early 80's, full and fluid and easy to wear. Don't get me wrong, this model has none of Norma's perfectly-tuned pizzazz, but it's a surprisingly serviceable, swingy little skirt that covers bulges and dresses up or down. Nice fabric for the price -- cotton jersey , medium weight, not too much for summer weather. but will move into fall. Sizing: I am a curvy hour-glass 12-14 regular (not a plus-size "W") I read the other reviews warning about crazy sizing, and they're right, these skirts run small for what they're marked. Decided to take a chance on 12-14 W , which fits my 31" waist and 42-" hips just fine. Some very slight difference in length depending on color. The blue's a little shorter, black's a little longer but not to the point of being frumpy. I'll get a lot of mileage from these $7 skirts

Nice skirt. I ordered originally in regular length even though I'm 5'2" but it was not long enough to be below-calf length, so I re-ordered the petite. It hits just below my knee and is very cute. The fabric is thick enough that I think it could pass for a winter skirt, but it's full enough so I don't think it will be too hot for summer. Waist fits smoothly, although it would be better if the hidden elastic were at least tacked down. Easy enough to do that myself if it's a problem.

This is a comfortable black skirt, the fabric is soft and it has a comfy elastic waist. The waist did tend to roll up a bit because it's not tacked down to keep it from doing so, but when you roll it back under once it's on it seems to stay, I might put a few stitches on the sides to remedy the situation, but it's really not a biog deal, especially at this price point.

I took a chance on this when I ordered it because there were no other reviews at the time and I'm glad I did. The skirt is nothing particularly special style wise, but its a nice looking skirt that can be worn both casually and dressed up a bit. The material is a nice medium weight and drapes well. I was a little worried about the sizing because they said size P was a size 2 (my size) but it fits great (I'm 5'5" 110 lbs) and hits just below my knees. And at the price its a great deal and hard to beat. If I wore more navy or gray I would consider buying those colors too (I got the black).

Nice medium-weight drapey material. Great length, just covers my knees. I had hoped the stretchy waist would include a wide band around the abdomen, but only the waist itself has elastic. Even though I am tall, the skirt seems to make me look wider.

I was a little leery about the sizing as I'm an 8-10 and the sizing didn't run that way. I opted for the 10-12 figuring to take it in if I had too but it was perfect when I put it on. Nice lightweight jersey so it won't be too hot in the summer. I haven't washed it yet but I don't foresee any problems. Would buy more colors if they got them in. They are such a good price that even if they only hold up for one season I haven't lost any money!
