I love the print of the material - it's very colorful and I feel I can wear any color leotard with it. However, it is made out of a stretchy, mesh type of material. The stretch is great for comfort, but the mesh makes it seem cheap. There is no finished hem - it looks like someone hand-cut the edge of the skirt. The skirt is very light-weight (which I personally like); it doesn't feel like I'm wearing a heavy skirt. The tie is made out of the same material (making it stretchy which is a plus) and is very long. The skirt is short (12 inches in the back), but that is what I wanted. Overall, I like the skirt (the print is very cool), but it doesn't seem very "durable" due to the fabric choice. I am curious to see how long the skirt will hold up before it gets a hole or a rip of some sort.
