I order from DDS a lot, and I have to say this is one of the best purchases I've made in a while. This skirt runs ever so slightly small, as many items do since most dancewear companies make Mediums for "normal" size 4 - small by the general population's standards.
The skirt is perfectly cut if you're going for that SAB skirt look, but done in a piece of chiffon-ish fabric that is delicate and semi-sheer yet not awkwardly transparent as many true chiffon's are.
The color I ordered, fuchsia, is gorgeously vibrant and complements pastels perfectly. My only complaint about this skirt is that it requires adjusting between exercises since it sits on the hips and tends to slowly ride up sometimes. Two thumbs up though overall!
I bought the xs. My waist is 24" and hips 36". I have a large bottom! The fit is great, I love the shortness. Very flattering for my short legs. I got the lilac, and it's a little lighter that some of the lilac leotards but they still look good together. The fabric is very thin and delicate, however it floats and dances very nicely. It grazes across the body nicely and hides that fact that most of my leotards gives me double bottom syndrome!
I just received my order and am very happy with this skirt. I ordered a white and a grape skirt in size XS-S. I am about 5"7' and 118LB. I have narrow hip and small behind as well as thin thighs. I initially wanted a size S-M, since I am not short. But, actually, size XS-S was perfect on my body. I generally like very short skirt. During the Barr, I don't wear skirts to see my alignment better. I wear skirt during the Centre, but I don't like ones that are too long or that would hide my waist and hip line. I like see through material of this skirt to show my full figure in the centre. This skirt is short enough to show most of my thighs. The shape is very cute, too. Yes, it is a bit costly, but I am going to order a Black and a Maroon skirts. I do not know about its durability yet. But, it is a very thin material, so I will have to be careful treating it. In my opinion, this skirt may not be for women with wide and large hips/thighs.
