This is one of the nicest fitting skirts I have ever owned. I have curvy hips and a small waist and usually skorts will ride up on me in the back. This one is a thick, yet soft weight that fits smoothly over the hips and snugly at the waist. It does not have a draw string waist like the description says, however, I am glad because it fits perfectly without it. It also leaves a smoother look under t shirts without a string. I purchased the medium. Usually I wear a size 8 so I feel this is true to size. So glad I ordered this one!
