This skirt is absurdly small. I order an extra small, as that is what I wear in every other skort I have. I couldn't get it past mid thigh. I'm 5'6", 118 lbs with a slim athletic build. The waist band measures 11" across, so 22" unstretched. And it doesn't stretch, as the flatlock stitching at the waist prevents any stretch at all. I have attached a picture of this skirt compared to another that I have in an extra small, for comparison. It is equally absuredly small compared to my other two skorts, as well. I offered the skirt to my 12 year old daughter, who is 5'1" and 78lbs, very slender. It was too tight on her also. It would be a beautiful product if it was sized more accurately, but I think this one needs a complete do-over. And I will have to pay the return shipping cost on a product that seems to be a complete misjudgment by the design team.

I'm 5'3, 125 lb, bought the Small in both blue & black. Love them both, true to size! If you're in between sizes like the other review says go up. The shorts part have a hidden phone size pocket & the skort itself has one on the back. Very comfortable breathable & quick drying. I have a slight muffin top, this hides it/ it holds it well. Not that anyone ever needs to hide a muffin top because everybody's beautiful!

Who knew I'd be buying a skort after elementary school, but here we are... I will be living in this, it's absolutely wonderful. Lightweight, flattering, and a pocket big enough to fit a phone. Sold If you're between sizes, order up (5'9" 135 lbs and a M fits great)

I gave this as a gift to my younger sister who was getting into paddleboarding along with other sports. She is a fashionable gal and I thought it would be perfect. She Loves it! She traditionally wears xs or size 0-2, and in this skort we purchased the S, and it fit her very well. It is very versatile because of the moisture-wicking fabric used. She wore it while hiking and reported it was flexible and easy to go up and down Mnt Olympus in! We also went on a river rafting trip recently, and she wore this skort the entire time on the river. It dried well, and kept her warm in the cold water. We would recommend this cute outdoor option to any cute gal out there!

I love the fabric, length, cut, and quality of this skirt, but unfortunately the fit wasn’t there for me. I have a slender/athletic build and am usually in between a XS and S. I purchased both sizes here; the XS was way too small to even pull on, and the S fit great in the waist but was snug enough around the hips for the skirt layer to ride up and pucker on either side. I ended up (sadly) sending both back. I didn’t try a M, but I have a feeling the waist would have been too big based on the fit of the S. All that said, I’d recommend giving this skirt a try to see if it works for you; it’s well made and seems very versatile!

I haven't owned a skort in YEARS, but this is a game changer. This skort is super stretchy and comfortable–you'll never want to take it off. Wear it for light activity or just around the house. Fits true to size but is definitely a snug fit.

There’s no stretch in the waistband. Usually I’m between a small and medium. I have a 27.5 waist and I couldn’t get this skirt up over my hips. I would recommend sizing up. That being said, the skort is really cute and great material. Thick waistband to hide all imperfections and help suck you in.

Is there a DWR finish? If so, is it PFC?

Hey Dana, This skirt is water-resistant and moisture-wicking. It does not however have DWR on it.
