Gored skirts are kind of perfect in a couple ways. The gores flow out from the waist down to them hem which reduces the bulk at the waist, but gives you room at the hips and a nice flared, easy to wear skirt that has plenty of style. They are dressy looking in a little floral print and perfectly casual in a denim or any other solid. This gently flowing 8 Gore Skirt is super comfortable and flattering. It flares nicely at the bottom and has an elastic in casing at the waist. Length for all sizes is approximately 34" and it is available in sizes 1X-4X. Please see the link to our Plus size chart at the top of the page and use the waist and hip measurement to determine your proper size. It is available in any of our fabrics but I would avoid plaids.
