Love this skirt
This skirt fits and looks great! The ponte material holds it shape very well and the skirt is constructed well. The the only con is that the thread used to construct this skirt is too fragile. The hem came completely out. I have re-hemmed and it is perfect.

Sexy yet classy
I love skirts that go under the knee, they are the new trend for this season and hopefully for a while. It is a great skirt and true to size, If you want an extremely tight, painted on look you can go down a size and get away with it. I can't wait to wear is more as it gets colder. They will look great/sexy with booths, booties and/or a great pair of pointy toe heels. It's very versatile, can go from office to dinner to a family party to a night out with the girls or a dinner date. It's all in how you dress it up and what you wear it with. Very flattering,

I fell in love with this skirt online, had it in and out of my shopping bag several times, and finally bought it with a coupon. I'm really glad I didn't pay full price, as the construction and quality is disappointing. The zipper ends directly between my legs, which is weird and not how the skirt sits on the model, and the chiffon inset is not quite full enough for a really nice effect. The stitched sipper stop (so you can't unzip it any more than what is shown on the model) is really obvious, which I was not expecting.
That said, the material is a ponte knit, as expected, with a weird half elastic/half banded waist that seems unnecessary. The skirt is hard to walk in, since it comes a couple inches below my knee (I'm 5'10" and ordered a 16.) Now, I love midi skirts, and they are hard to find at my height, but the weeny little pleat in the back is not sufficient for walking!
I'm not opposed to my belly showing in skirts, and it shows a lot in this one. The material is extremely clingy, and the fit seems a tad small. I actually sized up and it is still extremely tight in the belly. I bought this hoping to use it for work, but I honestly don't think it is appropriate on me for my workplace. I have to move a lot in my job, while dressed professionally, and this skirt doesn't cut it. I wanted to adore it, but I don't. It just isn't nice enough for the price.
