As a “plus-size” woman, shopping for clothing is truly the bane of my existence. I have just stopped going into physical stores entirely because the sizes rarely exceed 12 or XL which leads me to have a meltdown. Unfortunately, online shopping is only slightly better because although there are more options, I spend much of my time opening websites, checking their size guide, realizing I don’t fit in their clothes, and moving on. 

This is always annoying, but it’s worse in the winter; I haven’t worn pants in 15 years and rely solely on thick, heavy-material skirts and skorts. A good winter skort is especially hard to find, which is why I have been in Klassy Network’s Suede Skort 80 percent of the season since it first arrived at my door. 

There are a handful of reasons I like Klassy, but first and foremost are its product pages. The skort is pictured on a variety of women ranging from XS to 3XL. Beyond being size-inclusive, I could actually grasp what it would look like on my body, which is frustratingly rare. It’s also $40 — a pleasant surprise in our currently over-inflated economy.

And it only got better when the Suede Skort, which I got in black, arrived. It’s a faux suede material so it's soft, doesn’t require any breaking in, and can be machine washed. The shorts are like a thick-yet-undetectable lining that maximizes comfort and movement. The zipper is hidden in a side seam which means none of that bunching up of fabric I often experience with backside zippers. The front also has a slight V-cut to it which defines my waist and adds a hint of tailoring. 

Over the holidays I traveled to Vancouver for almost a week and wore it at least four of those days which is a testament to how truly exceptional and versatile of a garment it is. If you are into co-ord outfits, there is a matching Suede Brami Crop Top that features Klassy’s band-free, built-in padding structure they say makes bras obsolete. 

I have the black Suede Skort for now (and I’m wearing it as I write this) but will likely be returning for the brown version and other size-inclusive products. Head to Klassy to shop my new favorite bottoms.
