i got the pencil skirt in black. i ordered a size large because all of the reviews said to order one size larger. i have large hips and a skinny waist. im 5’10” and weigh 125. i wear a size 5 jeans. i figured that since i have large hips, i should take the other ladies advice. i was wrong. the large is huuuge on me. i just went through all of the instructions to return the skirt, and they only offer a refund, they do not offer an exchange, which kind of upset me. the skirt is cute. i like the material. if i would have ordered the right size it would have looked great on me. unfortunately, the top of it bulges out when pulled up to where it should be (because of the skinny waist) and if i pull it down so that the bulge goes away, its below my belly button and just looks silly since its supposed to be a high-waisted skirt.also.. i tried it on after i ate dinner and had a bit of a belly-bulge from eating too much 😉 so ladies, just to warn you: if you have belly-bulge this skirt DOES NOT DOES NOT hide it! it made me look like i was 5 months pregnant.so… basically… if you have a skinny waist and big hips, order the size you usually wear.. DO NOT ORDER A SIZE LARGER! and if youre looking for a skirt that helps hold in your belly fat.. this is not the high-waisted skirt for you!
