A full and swingy 100% worsted wool pleated skirt from Talbots featuring an elastic waitband in the back, size zipper with button closure on the side, and a pleasing olive green, cream, and maroon plaid pattern.  The original label and care instructions are affixed inside the skirt and the stated size is a "18".  The exact measurements of the skirt in inches are as follows:

  • Waist:  32" (with elastic in the back of the waistband)
  • Hips:  46"
  • Skirt Length:  31"

The skirt is in very good condition, with no rips, snags, pulls, or repairs.

Will This Skirt Fit Me?

Apart from the stated size on the label, The Ideal Hand Laundry takes the following steps to determine a skirt's measurements:

  1. Waist:  We measure across the waist and then double the number.  For example, if the measurement across the waist is 15", we double it to get a 30" measurement.
  2. Hips:  We measure down from the waist 8", and from there, measure across the width of the skirt and then double the number.
  3. Length:  We measure from the top of the waist to the bottom of the hem along the side.  

Measuring for Your Size

Using a flexible tape measure, take the following two measurements:

  1. Waist:  Loosely measure around your body at your natural waistline (Tip:  Bend to the side, and the crease is your natural waistline, usually 2" above the belly button).  Note the number in inches.
  2. Hips:  Measure around the widest point of your hips and rear, usually 8" below the natural waistline.  Note the number in inches.
