The moment I saw this skirt online, I knew it would be a great addition to my closet. I'm 5'2" and 130 pounds, and though the measurements posted on the site seem a little small, I ordered a medium, trusting my judgement. Though the waist is just a bit snug, it does zip up fine (apart from a bit of stickiness where the two pieces of fabric connect), and it's beautiful. I ordered it in "Mesmerize" (black), and the fabric is soft, shiny and comfortable. Overall, a great skirt.
