This single layer cotton spandex pencil skirt can be worn as a skirt extender, or as a fashion skirt. The fabric of this skirt is thin enough to be worn under a dress to add length to a dress that you find too short. There is no elastic in the waistband, so there is no chance of the muffin top look. This skirt is a very comfortable skirt to wear during pregnancy as well since it has no elastic in the waistband and will grow with your growing belly but take its original shape after a wash. This is a lightweight pencil skirt that has good stretch, and is super comfortable. If you are in need of a modest, lightweight skirt this is the one.
