"I really like the look of the skirt, but I was expecting something much lighter. This is not as much of a mesh (which to me means very light and airy) as it is a netted skirt (which to me means made out of a rope-like material and is heavy and a little stiff - which is what this skirt is). I got the black, and it's a washed black, not the true black pictured. The skirt is very bulky and heavy, and it is quite stiff. At a distance it looks just fine, but wearing it isn't so much fun. Also, my skirt arrived a wadded up mess. (FP has been doing this a lot lately.) I think the shape is as pictured, and the length is probably shorter than the images make it seem (which is good for me... I'm 5'2" and the skirt stayed off the ground in my bare feet) and the color is off. Not sure if the white is off as well. I'll return this. It's too bulky for summer, but would be too cold in the winter. I wish this actually was a mesh skirt instead of a fish net with a waist. If you do get this, the fit is TTS."
