I can't wear skirts anymore!

Just that really. I'm 38, really short with big norks and a bit of a tummy that looks OK in jeans/leggings and longer tops or in dresses but I just look really short, fat and frumpy in skirts. Very sad about this as I have some lovely skirts. Tried a few of them on the other day and have decided they'll all have to go to the charity shop. Has anyone else found they suddenly can't do skirts anymore?

I think u just need to rethink how or which lengths ur wearing & materials. I'm guessing uve had urs a while?

My answer is book a personal shopper at a big store and get them tohelp u

It's not really a problem with the length, it's the way they cut me in half around the middle - makes me look even shorter and dumpier than I am.
