Sparkle and shine! Take this skirt for a test spin and we know you won't want to take it off. Made of sparkly lycra, the akhet skirt hugs your curves and makes your moves more fluid than ever. The single leg opening can be worn in the center front, over one leg, or in the back for greater versatility. With an elasticized waistband, this skirt can easily be shortened from the top. Accessorize with one of our shimmering hip scarves, matching top and unique necklace for a truly inspired look.

I found this product to be exactly as described and I'm very pleased with finding this site :) My hips are 41" now and I went with the L/XL which seems to fit perfectly!

I have ordered this skirt in several colors (midnight blue, purple, emerald) and my troupe also has them (pink and teal). They look beautiful on stage and you really can't beat the price - if you are buying multiples you get a discount! My only caveat is that since there is no true "medium" for this brand, when in doubt, size up. I just reordered two of the skirts since I have gained a little weight and my upper hip is now 38". The small/medium now gives me terrible muffin top and the waistband rolls over. I would say the largest hip size for the S/M to wear comfortably is 34-36". When I get the replacement skirts I will have to take them in a bit through the hips and perhaps raise the hem, but it's worth it to have such versatile skirts that lay flat and fit my waist.

I got the skirt in green, very beautiful colour, very good quality material & very well made. I hope to buy this skirt in gold, when available. I have just ordered two more in different colours!

I have just reviewed the matching top , but the message is the same. I love this set. I'd own it in every color if I could afford it. I have the green & the white. I Always get compliments when I wear them. I wear the top over a bra top and it looks lovely. These pieces are so comfortable, & look amazing under lights.

I bought the teal skirt. High quality, well made and looks very professional. Vibrant color and sparkle looks stunning both on stage and in a low lit restaurant. Versatile, can wear with several bra and belts that I already have. The fit is perfect and hugs in all the right places. Quick shipping too.

This is a lovely skirt! It is a wonderful addition to my dance wardrobe. I get compliments on it every time I wear it. It is very figure flattering and easy to dance in.

I bought this skirt in "Lipstick pink" with the matching top, + also bought an Off the Nile bodystocking in Fuchsia. As I thought, it matched really good and I've worn the whole ensemble doing beledi or drum solo, with or without belt/hip scarf.
The material is faboulous in the spotlights, I'm really satisfied.
I'm thinking of buying "ensembles" like this in red, blue and purple as well (skirt, top, body stocking) for troupe performances.
One tip though: if you wear the skirt with a stocking, fasten it to the stocking, or it might start "drifting upwards" :-).

I have this skirt with the matching top as a troupe costume. We look great in the costume though we still to this day have to say "Slit on the left leg"
