It’s so hard to find...
Being short is a big problem.
Being overweight makes it impossible.
Most of my weight is in my thighs 😕
If anyone has any links or ideas for me it would be so helpful

Why wouldn’t any skirt in your size work and hem it?

Is there a different answer to her question whether she weighs 275 or 310?

Eshakti.com?

You can customize measurements so a good option if standard sizes are hard to fit. Most of their clothes can also be customized in other ways (longer, different hemline, no pockets, etc).

For 5 feet tall , 140 is overweight. Do you think that because a brand caters to 140 -160 lbs they also cater towards 300? Of course it’s different .

I never heard of skirts going by weight. Would be more appropriate to ask for approximate size if anything.

I'm 5"0 and overweight, but not obese. I think straight cut skirts, pencil skirts, or maxi skirts that only flare at the bottom are most flattering. It's very hard to find a properly fitted pencil skirt, and I would consider having 2 basic ones custom made. High quality skirts are not cheap and you might find it doesn't cost so much more.
And as cute as they are, stay away from pleats. I know, it's hard.

I pretty much stopped wearing skirts and wear 1 pc dresses. Works WAY better for me as a short fat woman with a high waist.
