This is very nice skirt once you iron out all the folds and wrinkles from shipping (iron this inside out to avoid damaging the material). I ordered it in my normal size (18/20) but the waist is pretty big. I could have ordered down a size and the skirt would still be flattering as it is very full. Best wear for me is to wear this with a top worn over the waistband (vs tucked in) + heels (boots or shoes) for a very chic effect. Nicer than I expected when worn. Surprised that I love it.
