To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
First, a note on fit. This skort is almost as wide at the waist as it is at the hips, so if you have a wide waist-to-hip ratio, it's not going to fit. If you're a little bit more straight-up-and-down, it's going to look and feel great. As another reviewer mentioned, this skirt has an odd pouchy area that folds down at the back of the waistband. You can smooth it out a bit by pulling the skirt lower on your hips, but ideally, this kind of pouchiness wouldn't exist. Aside from those fit and fold complaints, this is a nice skort. I like its materials, weight, and functional design.
This skirt looks the best of any of the 5 different ones I tried. I like the material - a little more structured - more like a cotton skirt straight fit than the usual spandex tennis skirt number. This makes it look sleek, tidy, and more like everyday wear than athletic wear. More flattering too.. I bought a size larger than normal because they were out of my usual size and in fits looser but not too bad. Allows me to pull it down on my hips for a slightly longer look. Only complaint is that the shorts underneath aren't long enough to prevent thigh chafe - even with the larger size! If all you want is shorts underneathe these are great. But if you have chub rub, this won't help you!
I usually have no problem with Eddie Bauer sizing (I have always gotten their swimsuits and loved them), but this is much too small. The large is more like a size 6-8. Otherwise, I would have liked it. I ended up giving it to someone that it fits.
