"I was so excited to receive this hi-low skirt but when I got it, like many other reviewers stated, with an hourglass figure, it made my hips look larger. If your waist measurement isn't too much different than your hips, this skirt is perfect for you, A friend of mine with a straighter waist/hip area tried it on and it was darling. After a few days I decided to try it on again, so wanting it to work. Working few trial & error tops, I found the look I wanted. If you're curvy, this skirt works really well with a hip-length straight top...maybe a vest or longer sweater. Fabric is very lightweight but with tights and boots, a great Fall piece. The screen print on the bottom isn't too bad especially at the sale price! I say try it and experiment, you might be surprised!"
