I like it - great variety nice feature is the size noted at lower left of skirt.
BUT sadly measurements are lacking in the WAIST and the type of waist closing i.e. elastic zippered buttoned.
Measurements for the Hem LENGTH are provided.

Thanks for the reference LINK !
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
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 !

Some skirts for $3 makes it appear it's close to thrift store prices, but the $6 shipping fee changes that.

I immediately gravitated towards the dresses. I saw quite a few that I liked. Dresses however are tricky online. A man really needs to first off, know his body and what "works" on his frame when it comes to dresses. Finally, by experience, he will then visit a store and actually handle the dress beside the rack. Inspect it, it's shoulders, its bust, and other features, if it seems like it will pass for gravy, he then takes it to the fitting room for the final test.

Even then, there is a 50% chance it goes back on the rack.
