Gad! That belongs in the NSFW (Not Safe For Work) category and is questionable in a family-friendly forum.

The skirt is evidently too small for her both in girth and length. It doesn't help that she has a little excess around the middle either. I wouldn't be tempted to buy it.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

That’s not a skirt.

That’s a cummerbund.

Like Mary Quant's/Twiggy's miniskirts in the 60s, it's destined to sweep the fashion world off its feet :wink:

The interesting thing here is that Mary Quant's designs were positively modest compared to some of the stuff we see today. Yes, they shocked the sensibilities at the time, but they did offer enough cover for the wearer so as not to be overtly obscene.

I see the Victoria and Albert museum is preparing a Mary Quant Exhibition....there are some references to Mary Quant and her fashion styles
on the internet............It was said that if she designed a short skirt....her clientel wanted the garment made shorter.

I must remind my friends that what we saw on the streets , in the work place and in Colleges in the late 1960 ' s was not perhaps what was shown
on the fashion catwalks.

One of the exiting outfits of that era was the brown leather miniskirt suit with the knee high lace up high heeled boots . The wearers were tall
and slim.......... does anyone remember the trolleys ? .............weeladdie

I met such a creature at a party in March 1968 and on our first date I took her to Brands Hatch. She wore a suede miniskirt suit with long boots almost up to her knees and I don't mind admitting I was bowled over.
That suit displayed her figure well....that of a tall powerful International Ladies' Lacrosse player, which she was at the time.

Hardly victorian but a legendary fashion designer for sure.

The V&A was named after those Royals, but contains an awful lot of stuff that isn't 'Victorian', so it's a perfect London venue for such an exhibition.

No, see, like "victorian" sometimes means (at least here) extremely prim, proper, sexually-repressed, and clothed neck-to-foot, and Mary Quant was none of that...

Or have I reached too far?

Well the Victorian part might be a little repressed, but the Prince Albert part has no such inhibitions!
Keep on skirting,

We have a conundrum here. If the folks in the Victorian era were sexually repressed then how did they manage to breed? Lust will find a way!

Keep in mind just how much progress got made in that period of time -- and how much it helped turn the planet into the "global village" that it is today. Much of it was ghastly, of course, if one wasn't in the upper class, but it also set the stage for the fairly prosperous mid 20th Century, the memory of which is fading fast for everybody but the upper class.

Note also, that Mary Quant's designs were positively modest by current standards.
