Rick made this particular skirt for both boys and girls for the last couple of seasons. What I’ve heard is that the skirt for the men’s version is roomy and comfortable to walk in. Perhaps that’s why they also look rather like a slightly oversized bin bags tied around the waist (when standing still). Now contrast that to the women’s. Boy can I just say that the skirt is mighty tight, so tight that I was forced to take dainty steps in them. It fits me fine around the waist but I have a feeling that Rick didn’t actually account for the average lady’s waist to bum ratio. If I were to take the next size up, I’d lose the streamlined silhouette of the skirt, not to mention the fact that by the time I could get the skirt there was only one size left. On the upside, I was finally walking like the prim and proper lady Mary Poppins would be proud of, but I gave up on stairs completely for fear of making a hole at an indecent spot. Oh the things we do for fashion!
