It's a great skirt for travel. I bought the 14 and then lost some weight, but I love the skirt so much I'm having it taken in. The only criticism I have is a lack of belt loops. I know in the end we think women only need fashion rather than function, but I like wearing my carry belt with this skirt. If they added proper belt loops that would be a solid step toward fixing the problems with womens' clothing. Pockets could stand to be a bit bigger as well(though they are by no means useless like most of the short pockets you find in clothing like this).
