by LinzTheSwimmer Made me a 1st time fan of maxi skirts
This blue skirt stopped me dead in my tracks as I spied it on the hanger. I actually don?t own a single maxi-skirt, however this hi-low design was the clincher. I was surprised I fit best into an XS, I?m 5?.6?, 135 lbs, 29? waist but athletic/without any hips. The stretchy cotton lining at the top and the waistband are very forgiving, so if your hips are 36? as are mine, you?ll fit the XS best. I agree with other reviewers that the white color-way highlights any pooch you may have with a nice round bump from beneath the waistband. The blue color hides it much better. I almost wanted the white version anyhow, but the reality of having a messy baby boy at home ruined that fantasy. I disagree that the material is cheap, it is not, and even though it?s lined, it?s nice and flowy. Five stars for the construction, design and fit of this amazing skirt. In the photo, I paired it with Anthro?s Leifsdottir bumble-bee silk tank from 2011, Tossa belt and Banded mercury slides from 2012.

This skirt flows very well due to its liner. The waistband is also very soft and slimming, but is does show any bumps underneath - so even though I think this skirt looks best with a t-shirt tucked in, it has to be something with a very flat hem. Would also look great with a cropped sweater. It can also be accented with a belt. It's rayon but I think it will wash well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by planetqueen beautiful shade of blue, runs a bit big
I've had this on my wish list for a while, but it wasn't until I saw it in the store that I realized how pretty it was. I'm petite and usually wear a size 2 or XS skirt. I tried this in XS and it had a very relaxed fit, especially in the waist, and I don't have a small waist. If you are on the smaller end of your size range and can size down, you may want to. I thought the seams on the yoke would make my hips look bigger, but they were actually quite flattering. Since I'm short it is a bit longer on me than on the model, hitting just below the knee in front and a couple of inches above the floor in back. The color is just gorgeous, and you can't beat the sale price, so I'm really glad I found it.
