My waist is 32" and my hips are 45", so it's hard to find bottoms that fit well. I got the 2XL. This skirt sits low, and it has a drawstring waist. I wear it over leggings in cold weather. It seems to stay in place pretty well while walking. The only drawback is that it has no pockets. It's very easy to access the pockets in my leggings, so I'm fine with that. It's a great deal for the price, since so many others are easily twice the price. They just didn't have a size for me. Oh, and I took off the silly little patch. The brand name on this one is a real head-scratcher.
