The elasticized waistband... is terrible! The skirt has no form whatsoever and looks like a straight tube.. not impressed. The waistband is very thin and although it is elastic it gives no support to figure. I have an average figure and it made me look like I've no waist. It's really not worth the price - the material is cheap and thin. Dust sticks to the material. I wish it was thicker, maybe with lining, the idea of elasticized band is great but maybe make it thicker and more supportive?
