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.
I have three of these skirts. One of the straight style in "black floral" print, and two of the "flippy" style, one black and one navy blue.
I ordered the straight style based on the size chart, then ordered one flippy the same and the other one size down. I like the smaller size for running, etc. These have plenty of stretch, so the smaller size still fits perfectly, but it's a little more secure, especially with the weight of a phone in the pocket. The "proper" size is still perfectly fine for less active wear.
The straight style has nicer fabric. Smooth drape and doesn't seem to hold wrinkles. On the downside, the shorts are just a bit longer than necessary, and being plain white, they want to peek a little more often than I'd like. I wish they were coloured and/or an inch shorter.
The flippy style has better shorts (a little shorter, and colour-matched), so even digging your phone out of the pocket doesn't make an obvious "flash". However, the fabric is not as nice. It doesn't hang quite as well, and it likes to hold some wrinkles.
Overall I'm happy with all three skirts. They seem well made with no signs of wear after several machine washings (delicate, cold water), they're very comfortable, and the hidden phone pocket works quite nicely for me.
You should order a size up to ensure a proper fit. I normally wear a medium and, based on comments, I ordered a large and it’s the right size. The skirt is cute and the pattern I selected is nice but, despite what the write-up says, the skirt that I got (they call the pattern ‘Blue Floral’ despite it looking like a bunch of scribbles) definitely DOES NOT have pockets. I bought the skirt for golf and wanted pockets, but decided to keep it anyway. If the skirt had pockets, as advertised, I would have then ordered more in different patterns, but I’ll have to do with just the one.
Everything was the colour, size and fabric that I expected. It is comfortable to wear. I have not had the item long enough to know how well seams and stretch last, but after my first wear (in very warm weather) I am satisfied.
