* Note that this skirt is designed to sit 1 1/2" below the natural waist, just above the hipbones. this measurement is flexible and can be adjusted with the elastic. if you prefer to wear the skirt at your natural waist, you might consider making one size smaller than your regular size. If you do this, check to be sure the extended waist will fit over your hips.
