Hello fabulous folks,
I've been searching for the perfect pencil skirt and I'm hoping you can help. I really love the idea of pencil skirt on my pear shaped, bootylicious body. But the two I've purchased so far from Curvy Girl
have suffered from two flaws:
1. The ultra stretchy fabric results in the skirt wiggling up my thighs everytime I walk, stand, or sit. This means I'm constantly tugging the skirt down to avoid showing my underwear to coworkers.
2. The shiny synthetic fabric that appeared glam-ish in the store, looks terrible with my wardrobe of mostly natural fabrics or more matte synthetics.
I could probably deal with #2, but #1 is a dealbreaker as I hate uncomfortable clothing. Consequently, I've only worn each of these skirts once or twice. I'm hoping a minimally stretchy or non-stretch fabric may help...or perhaps a slightly longer skirt like this
. Does anyone else have this issue with pencil skirts? Have you seen any cute neutral-colored skirts lately that may work? I'm 280ish lbs, 42-38-52. I typically wear a size 20-24 skirt.
Any help would be much appreciated!
ETA: I tried taking in the bottom of the Curvy Girl skirt, and it didn't seem to help. I agree w/ pretty year's analysis, I think it's a proportion issue. I just ordered this
from Target. I'll post a review.
On a more positive note, I discovered several cute dresses at Deb's during my search. Thanks for introducing me to a new store.
