I have a similar problem at the moment, but rather than it being a vertical problem it's a horizontal one -- I've lost so much weight I've dropped at least one full size and some of my really really nice skirts simply fall off me at the moment and are irreplaceable. I can likely have them taken in a bit, but what happens if I gain the weight back?
Ah yes...been thinking it is wonderful that a couple of my skirts were literally falling off recently if not a quick breath, stance change or snagging hand--but it did open the door to a couple of those that have been on the shelf awaiting that day when a couple more pounds gave way. Yet sad too about the favorites that were sliding floorward -- however, sadly I must also report the 'problem' seemed to disappear on its own all too soon!

Thanks Dave for the reminders about ready solutions, at least to downsizing! My sequin number fits fine and is easily decent in size -- but the amount of flash from all those beads really calls attention to oneself -- not sure how to fix my psychological size so readily.

I shared a picture of this dress before. I keep it for laughs, not wearing outside.

I still wonder how what looks like a design for a little girl fits an old man!
If I had something similar, I think I'd wear it probably as nightclothes. :)
