"I was really hopeful that this skirt would work. I bought a sz 3, as all the dresses I've ordered in that size have worked for me...but this skirt certainly didn't. It's very fitted and the band around the waist isn't like I thought it would be. It looks like a normal skirt from the front and has a slightly elastic waist in the back. It just wasn't enough give on my body to not give me a "love handle" look."
