I absolutely LOVED everything about this skirt except for ONE thing...the weird 3 inch puff out on each side. I don't know how else to explain it. It's a perfect fit but then in one spot on each side it suddenly puffs out as though you should have a small waist but hips that puff right out in just a small spot. It seems to be below the hip area as well. I'll admit that I don't really have hips but if I did, I still don't think that the skirt would fit right in that area. So frustrated! If not for that one thing, it's an AMAZING skirt. Still debating weather I should pay a tailor to take it in on each side in that spot so I can keep it. Such a bummer.
