My order came much quicker than I expected. Yay! I slipped into the skirt and...womp womp. Stripes are NOT forgiving. In a tight fitting skirt even less so.
I admit, I have a bit of a mommy tummy, and with the c-section, ehm, flab? My tummy will not be so flat for a while. I can wear some shaper device under the skirt, but still...there will be. Stripes. Elongated. Across my lower body.
It wasn't pretty. I am disappointed. I have many MANY black skirts. I have tight fitting ones, and loose fitting ones, cotton ones and polyester ones (I guess it's polyester). I would like a skirt that isn't all black. I have a couple of brown skirts, and one with a pattern. The pattern one is a fancier skirt for Shul (synagogue).
I would really like something I can wear with casual outfits. I am short though, and as I have discovered with some prints, they make me look sooooo short. I don't know if it is the shape of the skirt (flare versus tighter fitting) or the print itself (big print versus small). Any ideas on what I should look for?
I'm 5'2"-ish. My legs are short. My torso is short. I am just short. But not in a petite way.
Let me know what you think or link up some options in your comments...thanks!
