I was looking for a casual summer jean skirt and normally try to avoid stretchy fabric because it rarely fits well in larger sizes. I found this jean skirt and it was super comfortable, soft and lightweight and fit well enough (after a little stretching manipulation). I did not like the stupid decorative rip in it because, well, it is stupid to buy new clothing item with a rip in it. The hem is also unfinished in its styling, which I imagine goes with the rip but again, a little annoying though not as annoying as the rip. However, on balance, the skirt is a nice summer denim skirt so I decided to purchase it and do find it very comfortable to wear. If you are looking for a lightweight, comfortable and casual summer denim skirt, and don't mind that it comes pre-ripped, I would recommend this item, despite the rip.
