Beautiful shiny red skirt
with chiffon gores and gold sequin trim. Looks
great onstage, and will have great shine under lights, and perfect for
students, avocational dancers, troupes, or pros who want an extra
skirt to go with that certain costume.
I wouldn't call this a small.
I'd call it a medium to petite-large. For a "professional" looking,
more "trumpet" like fit in this skirt, one probably needs more booty
than a typical "small" (definitely more than the model in this picture
has.) For a student look or a looser, fuller skirt fit, a small may be
ok, but if you want a snug/smooth fit and that mermaid look, you'll
need at least a 40" lower hip (it is 40 wide unstretched below the
elasticized band. Stretched you can get another 2-4" depending on your
comfort level and build.) Because there are gores, only one seam, and
this type of fabric doesn't adapt well to alterations, taking it
in/letting it out much isn't recommended.
The elastic on the upper hip is 24" unstretched, but it is soft and
stretches a LOT very easily--goes up to about 38" without problem.
Actually, looks better stretched more--I'm guessing probably best
around 36-38. Again, because of the nature of the fabric, if the upper
hip is too small, you may end up with a lot of fabric gathered right
under the elastic (pulled down to my 33" point, I had excessive
Keep in mind: the length is 36" but if you stretch at all across the
hips some of that length will come up.

for the look I was going for.
