Manufacturing Issues

Here's the thing - I absolutely love the Gym Girl Ultra Skirt but after two orders I have realized that STP has gotten the altered batch. A few patterns have shorts that are about 1/2 a size too tight. This was noted on the SS website as a manufacturing glitch. I knew this about the Red Kiss Play Print, Red Kiss, and Ocean print but it turns out the Spinnin' print has this issue as well. I ordered a Medium in the Red Kiss in hopes it would fit, but it was simply too big at the waist for me and too tight at the short openings so it was returned. I normally wear a size small. I was excited to see the Spinnin' print (cute!) offered. I ordered it in small but realized this print had the same issue. I'm afraid to risk buying any other prints which is a shame because this is a stellar deal, but I can't afford the back and forth shipping costs if another print doesn't work. So please take note, fellow skirt lovers! The shorts are supposed to be tight, but not so tight they cut into your legs. If anyone is familiar with Skirtsport sizes and finds a print that has the correct short sizing, please share! Otherwise I'd like to say that this is my absolute favorite skirt for running as long as the sizes are on point! I'd recommend to anyone, but not the ones on STP currently.
