I've been loyal to the brand for 20 years! but I'm very disappointed that every year sizes get smaller. I bought the same collection last year, same size and when compared to this year's skirt, the new skirt was one full inch narrower. It's a shame that the cuts have not been consistent over the years. I ordered 5 suit skirts and will be exchanging them all for the next size. You may want to order one size larger.
