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.
