I love this skirt so much that I bought it in both red and blue. After two washes, the elastic in the the waist of the blue skirt stretched out, and the skirt no longer fits me. I'm very disappointed. I always washed the skirt in a laundry bag to keep it looking new. I'm also surprised because most pieces that I own from RW&CO have been great quality. I re-ordered the blue skirt in the hopes that this won't happen again.
