The fabric is so soft and cool. We had a heat wave the first week of May. It was 105 degrees F. I wore this skirt, and I felt so cool and comfortable. The only problem is that it's really big. I normally wear a size 5, and this skirt in size small is swimming on me. Luckily, it's a wrap skirt, so I just added some more Velcro, and now I can wrap it tighter. It looks fine now, but I had to modify it.
