This skirt, while cute, is painful. It’s just a wee bit tight around my waist. I should also mention that I just started exercising using a weighted hula hoop (don’t ask) and have bruises on my midsection. Don’t worry, it only hurts when I walk…or sit or stand. Never in my life did I think I’d sustain injuries from hula hooping and skirt wearing. Is this what they mean when they say beauty is pain?
