An interesting little number. My size but black is not my colour.
"Little" is the operative word there. That "garment" wouldn't even start to cover my "undercarriage" much less allow me to be even remotely modest.

I know, "it pays to advertise", but when it scares children and spooks horses I'm not so sure...

Something definitely for the shorter of stature... :twisted:

The bodice doesn't look long enough to cover the tits! Maybe it's stretchable.
Its supposed to be worn underbust. - sort of a slightly higher waist by and inch or two. (more comfortable than overbust)
Theres a lot of high waisted skirts nowadays - and high waisted leather shorts seem to be big - but then who wants shorts !!!

For those into dresses.
Has everything going for it (linen, flare, colour) except for the top of the bodice that looks like eyes popping out.

I actually quite like that dress (it was my size I think it was Aussie/NZ sizings) - I'd wear that - although I am not in the sun a lot so it might make me look a bit pasty-pale skin looking? You'd need a natural tan - or a spray tan.
I've got a pair of Navy/white pumps that would've coordinated with the dress too.

OK, I have just ordered two of the middle ones, in white. I would have ordered one of the bottom ones, but they only come in human sizes, I need a monster sized, humph!

Nice looking skirts. I ordered them today. Have ordered many from these sellers. Good quality.
I don't know if I need another skirt, but nice and I'm pleased they are listed for men.

I am very pleased they are marketed to men as well, not that it matters personally but I think it helps for mainstream.

That one is probably the prettiest of all of them.

Here is another cheerful skirt. A bit long for me at 460mm.

Beautiful flippy skirt with wide elasticated waistband.
Brand new with tags.
Waist is 40cm unstitched with up to 5cm more when stretched.
Length is 46cm


Nice attractive skirt hem length - 460mm = 46 cm = 18 inches - just about 1 to 2 inches too long for me.
I like the flaring out of the hem line.
Elastic waist = 40 cm = 32 (16x2) inches stretching to about 45 cm = 36 (18x2)
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

Looks practical but unfortunately a size or 2 too small. It is the arm pit to arm pit measurement that is usually too tight for me on tunics and dresses, relative to an equivalent skirt size, which is strange considering most women have breasts to circumvent.

Don't forget that the male has muscular development in the back (broad shoulders) in those measurements across the arm pit to arm pit.

I question without a crotch piece if this romper of sorts would ride up on the torso creating an exposure issue.

Admittedly not with a mini but I wear braces with some skirts on quite a regular basis.
Real comfortable as it makes the skirt hang like a dress.

Heh, heh, denimini, with braces and skirts. A comedian called Bobby Ball ( died recenty ) used to wear bright red braces which he extended outwards as part of his act. I can imagine doing the same and the skirt hem ending up around your navel[0]. :lol:

[0] No crotch piece to stop the upward movement of the attached garment.
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.
