So I'm a chubby girl 54 years old and 4'10" at 165 lbs. I ordered the XXL even though I typically wear XL or 14-16. I'm glad I did because it fits small. The measurements of the XXL is waist 34", hips 46", length 18". The shorts underneath are 5 1/2" inseam so they don't ride up. The shorts seem to be of a heavier fabric than the skirt and has a deep 3" x 5" pocket for cell phone, lipstick, cards, etc. The shorts fit a bit snugger than the skirt portion which helps hug the tummy area. The colors are vibrant and this fabric looks like it will wear well and wash well. The fabric is 95% Polyester 5% Spandex and recommends hand wash or dry clean only, although a paper tag says don't dry clean. I feel confident this fabric should handle machine washing warm water with similar fabrics and a low dryer. A hot dryer is not a friend to polyester or spandex. The fabric colors are bright and should look great with t-shirt or dressing up with a blouse. Some of you have asked about wearing it as swim bottoms. I can't wait to go paddling with mine. Not for swimming, but for splashing about in the water/pool, it looks like it would be perfect. I wear a swim dress for modesty usually and this skort is a bit longer than my dress. If the wearer finds it drooping from the weight of the water, a tie string inside the band can easily be added by the way the waistline is made. A little snip of the seam inside the waistband at the side, pull a string through (like from a hoodie), a couple of stitches and no more drooping. I ordered the Nature Color and Pattern Three.
Before I start the review let me touch on the mysterious grommet in the skirt. It is not a flaw or a mistake. It is there to thread your earphone phone cord through. One places phone in the hidden pocket, threads the earbud cord through for ease of use and not waking around with your skirt up.
I bought the multicolor tropical skirt in XXL. I am 5’10” at about 215lbs. The skirt is not ultra high waisted but certainly isn’t low. It covered my mama tummy so I’m good with that. The length is nice and comes about 2” above the knees. It is possible I could’ve gotten an XL instead. I may get another in XL just to compare.
The fabric is stretchy, attractive, and comfortable. It holds ip to the image in the selection. The short part is super comfortable.
This is a great article of clothing for doing the tourist thing, hikes, groceries, or just chilling out.
I have about 30 sports and this one is top 10. I am in my 60s and I where them for work. Material very soft, made very well, length is prefect. washes well. I hang dry most of my clothes but my husband by mistake put it in dryer no problem. Colors are so pretty. price is fantastic and I would pay more.
