Super Comfy / Great Price / Good Quality / Elastic inside waistband folds over,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Alki'i A-Lined Mid Length Skirt with Elastic Waistband (Apparel)
All in all, I love this skirt. I'm getting thicker in the middle (oh I miss my 25 year old waist! and just wanted to be comfy and look cute. This skirt did the trick. It looks sweet with kick-it keds or tennies, sandals, or flats. Washes easily, no frilles, sewn and made well. Good quality fabric. My only issue is that the elastic in the waistband folds over - partly because it wasn't tacked in properly and partly because my middle is soft... So young ladies, fear not, if you have fab abs, your elastic won't bend. My peri-menopausal friends ... well, we're a different story altogether!
Cute skirt, I have a whole wardrobe of them now... love it.

This review was very helpful for me because I've the same problem with my waist. I hate elastic that is not sewn in and find it to be a constant nuisance. I don't wear the clothes that have this kind of waistband. This one comment tells me that this is not the skirt for me.

I am looking for a skirt that is 96-100% cotton? I have eczema so I have to wear clothes that are fully cotton. Can you look at the label for me to check if this is the case. Thank you so much!

Here's the fabric content - The elastic inside the waist is completely sewn in by cotton -
100% interlocked cotton skirt
Also, I took mine to my local tailor and for $2-3 a skirt they somehow magically fixed the elastic so it stays perfectly straight inside the sewn seam. I LOVE this skirt!

Don't we all miss the old waist size! When I enlarge the photo it looks like the material might be just like a sweat shirt, fuzzy inside. Is it?

The material is not as fuzzy as the inside of a sweatshirt but it is super soft and it is thick so it is somewhat like a sweatshirt. Very nice skirt, though the black color was much better than the blue color.

Would it be suitable to wear for a very hot summer?

No, it's really thick and warm. I wore it in winter.
