Rated 2 out of 5Â by reneew Odd Fit & Stiff Fabric Equals Disappointment
The pencil skirt is generally the most flattering skirt-shape on me. For reference, I am a size 6 in a pencil skirt because I have a short waist (no real waist, really) and no hips. This skirt, though, fit odd. The waist was very small and the hip area was very wide. Even if the 6 would have zipped on me, the hip area would have been way too big.
The other issue is the hand of the fabric. It is quite heavy and stiff, so I cannot imagine that this skirt would move with the body. I did like the idea of the print, and it does look in person as you see on the model in the photo. However due to the fit and the fabric, this skirt is a disappointment.

I like this skirt a lot. It may be smaller in the waist and wider in the hips like the previous reviewer stated, but that's how I'm built (happily). It ran true to size for me (size 6).
The skirt is 100% cotton, without stretch, so the fabric does feel a bit heavy. I haven't worn the skirt to work yet, so I don't know how it will stretch throughout the day. As of right now, it just feels fun and comfortable -- and a little outside the norm!

I am 5'2", 130 lbs., and curvy through the hips and thighs. The pattern of this skirt makes me look thin and sleek...it is great! Looks just like the picture and I love that it is professional enough for work but has a little extra style. I am glad I was able to snag this for sale online, and with an extra 15% off for my anthro birthday card, because the sales associate I tried to purchase it from in the store would not let me use my birthday card on sale items. Clearly if I can use it on sale items online, I should be able to in the store! Happy birthday to me despite the ill-informed sales associate!
