Best-Fitting Pencil Skirt Ever!

The pencil skirt is arguably a must-have in every woman’s wardrobe. Pencil skirts are stylish, timeless, and versatile. For many of us, though, finding a pencil skirt with a flattering and comfortable fit is a chore. If it fits in the waist, it doesn’t accommodate the hips or vice versa.

When I first heard about Rita and Phill, then, a startup company specializing in custom fit skirts, I was intrigued. From the convenience of an online storefront, Rita and Phill custom tailors luxurious skirts at affordable prices. At Rita and Phill, four important measurements—height, waist, hips, and thighs—stand between you and your perfectly-fitting pencil skirt.

I was invited to try the Rita and Phill experience. So, I visited the site and chose a skirt style. I was immediately drawn to the Elaine skirt because it’s zip front gives it a polished and edgy vibe. I followed the handy measurement chart to ensure I took my measurements accurately.

A few weeks later, I had the best-fitting pencil skirt ever! I’m wearing the Elaine skirt in a black faux snake skin fabric. When I first tried on my skirt, I seriously didn’t want to take it off. It fit amazingly well and felt even better than that. 

With ease, this skirt molded to my curves. It’s also lined with a super soft, premium fabric. So, on the inside, the skirt feels like I’m wearing silky pajamas.

I took my skirt for a test run recently. I wore it to a holiday party. I paired it with a fabulous mesh detail top that’s on sale for only $14. The overall look was chic, but more importantly, it was comfortable.

    oh my gosh, I cant wait to try this!! I usually have to manage that difference between a small waist and generous hips. I hate the pulling around the hips. This looks so perfect on you.
