This skirt is all kinds of fabulous. The design and the quality are superb. And, the fit is TTS. I took my normal size 14. The "pintucked" portion of the skirt lays flat in the front of the skirt. I was concerned that the fabric would pucker in that area, but the skirt is so well-made that it does not. The skirt does sit higher on the waist, but that helps to slim things, particularly the stomach area, in my opinion. I highly recommend this flattering skirt.
I was super hesitant about trying the J. Crew Long-Sleeve Striped Maxi Dress because I was concerned that it would be too form fitting on me. I have loved the dress on other people, but I did not know how it would work on my curvier figure. I am SO glad that I decided to try this gorgeous, well-made dress because it is super flattering.
Here are three IRL pictures of the dress:
This dress is seriously amazing. The fit is TTS. I took my normal size 14 and it fits great. I will definitely need to wear Spanx to smooth the lumps and the bumps, but this dress definitely looks great on a curvy figure. The material is thick without being too substantial or too thin. The dress is not see through at all. The J. Crew Zinnia Crystal Necklace in Neon Seamist adds just the right pop of color against the stripes.
The J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Paisley was at the top of my list from the latest new arrivals. I am totally convinced that J. Crew does pencil skirts better than any other retailer! I am a huge fan of this skirt.

The skirt fits TTS. I took my normal size 14. The material is really great for summer!
