Now that is a good idea. Unzip and remove the panel to tighten the fit or possibly zip in a wider panel for a larger size.

Or simply add a second panel of the same size which would yield symmetry in the layout of the zips and still increase the effective size.

Here's a nice-looking skirt on eBay listed under men's clothing. Unfortunately, it's a bit expensive for me.

It has nice leather details, but $650 is too much.

For that price it must be rocking horse hide trim - that is pretty rare.

I think they expect that price because it is under "men's" clothing. This is what a really fashionable man would wear.

I don't normally even look at dresses, due to the dress fitment issues female versus male. however I somehow stumbled across these on eBay.

I rather like the tyedied colors and the gradient green.
I wear several tie dye t shirts. ( Not planning on ever wearing this dress in public, unless MIS really become common)

I almost want to order one, but cringe when I see the waist on the non on a person picture. And again when I see that they are in Asian sizes.

I hate to waste money, and suffer disappointment, but I really like that dress.
Do you think a 5 x would fit my 38-40 trousered or 18W-20W skirted male frame? Or am I just day dreaming?

Avoid the middle man, wear a kilt or skirt.

Resembles a "T" shirt dress - - -

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Women-Summer-S ... 632-2357-0

Better check more than the bust/chest measurement -
The hem length of these dresses
Usual modesty regards bending over - reaching for the sky
and that hem length creeps up to a revealing level

Asian sizing best order one size bigger than your expected size
"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 !

That little flared denim no. for $650. Bargain basement stuff and I'm not surprised to see that it's pre-owned.

I wonder how long it will take for some stark raving lunatic to make a bid for it?

I agree nice dress. They don't ship here unfortunately.

However, I see they have a size chart so grab a tape measure. The length is a bit under a metre which works for me but depends on your height (I'm 1.80 so that leaves the hem 50cm from the floor). To be sure, get someone to measure out a metre from your shoulder while you're leaning over. It only adds a few cm I find in practice.

Looks practical, probably a bit long for me, although the label name seems appropriate.

Ok an update guys and gals. I did buy one. I got the black to red one in a 5x
It's not bad, but it's not great either.
The bodice fits like a snug XL t-shirt remember I ordered the 5 x.
It's made out of a very thin but stretchy material
It's about knee length on my 5 foot 6 frame.

It's good for around the house, too thin to really wear out in public.

Thanks for the review.
I was quite interested in the graded lake green - more for a night shirt so loose is necessary - but being polyester put me off.
I hate the way the price jumps up when you select the size and colour. The only option listed at the advertised price is the small orange.

It seems that unless purchasing used or from a thrift store, cheap means low quality.
