I am 5' 7" waist 27" hip 38" wears a size 4. I purchase this item in a size 6 during the sale for a great price compare to the original cost. However it turns out to be a waste of money. The color exact, delivery and packing was good, but unfortunately I could not say the same after trying on the skirt. The pockets are completely stitched down on the lining, which is also attached to the first pleats on both sides, front & back. It causes the skirt to fit narrow across the hip area, & the pleats are unable to lay flat. I've never experience such defect.
