Okay..... so i have decided that the best thing to suit my 'post baby' figure ( well, she,s 20 months old now  and my tummy is still extremely round!!!!!) but my legs are still good! huh.gif
is an elastic waisted tube skirt(knee length) with a 'billowy'? (is that the right word?) top.
But do you think i can find said skirt?!!!! unsure.gif
Why is it that i know exactly what i want in my head but can,t seem to purchase it anywhere!?!!!

Anyone know where i can buy an elastic waisted short tube skirt in various colours?
I just want to look ok and feel comfortable at the same time!

Thankyou in advance   original.gif

There is a couple of different colours in tube skirts on that website. Pricey though if you are buying a few. I have never bought that brand so can't comment on the quality.

Rockmans had them last summer with built in tummy control. Maybe try there?

Country Road have some stripey & color block ones. Witchery had bright (flouro) ones as did Sportsgirl. Katies has had them in different colors as did Sussan.

It should be pretty easy to find some in the sales. I've got a few to wear to work that cope with a pg belly.
