Recently LuLaRoe launched a new skirt, called the Marsha. Since it’s a brand new style, it’s only right for me to write a review of this new style so you know if this style would work on your body shape and what size would be best for you. So, let’s get to my honest LuLaRoe Marsha review!
What is the LuLaRoe Marsha?
The Marsha is a midi-length skirt. Click HERE to read my post introducing you to this new style.
LuLaRoe Marsha Review: Fabric
The Marsha comes in 2 fabrics as of now. They are:
- ITY: The same fabric as the LuLaRoe Maxi skirt
- MVS: The cottony-feeling t-shirt fabric
I love both of these fabrics for these skirts because they don’t wrinkle, they breathe beautifully, and the way they lay on a woman’s body is very flattering. I’m pleased that these are the fabrics were the ones that were used when creating the Marsha.
I already know there will be a question about fit difference in fabrics. No, there is no difference in MVS and ITY.
LuLaRoe Marsha Review: Price
The Marsha is $42, which I feel is beyond affordable for this skirt. The attention to detail that was used on this skirt makes it worth every penny.
LuLaRoe Marsha Review: Fit
Ok, this is why you’re here, right? So, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty details!
Hi, my name is Devin! You’re about to become very familiar with my body. I’m 5’4″, a size 12/14, a 34D, and I’m an hourglass/borderline pear body shape. This means I carry my weight in my tummy, hips, booty, and thighs. Why do I think you need to know this information? Knowing my stats and where I carry my weight will help you make an informed decision on what size you will need. When it comes to true to size LuLaRoe pieces, I wear a large.
Well, crap. I never thought I’d fit into a small. The only reason I believe it works is because I have an hourglass figure. Does this look good from the back? It’s questionable. I felt like it clung to my booty a little too tightly. Would I wear this size every day? No.
And I feel like a bombshell. This skirt moves. It skims my body. I’m going to need them all. Hello, preferred size!
Here is my true size. I thought this would be the size that I preferred, but I actually like to size down because of where I carry my weight. If I were to wear the Marsha on my hips instead of my natural waist, I would wear a large.
And now we’re getting too big. I have to shuffle the fabric around the waistband to make it look like I’m not wearing a paper bag. I could make this work, but will I? Probably not.
And this is the point where it’s no longer cute. I can’t cinch the waist anymore where it fits without having the drawstrings be excessively long!
LuLaRoe Marsha Review: Body Shape
If you’ve ever read about body shape, you know that some styles work best for some shapes, but not so much for others. If you need help figuring out what shape you are, HERE is a post that will help you out.
When it comes to the Marsha, I truly feel that this skirt works well for all styles. However, if you are an apple shape, you may prefer to wear the Marsha lower on your hips versus your natural waist. This will balance out your upper body.
LuLaRoe Marsha Review: Overall Thoughts
When I saw that the Marsha was being launched the Little House on the Prairie was the first thing that came through my mind. Another friend referred to it as a Dugger skirt. I second-guessed ordering this. When they came in, I was so pleased. They’re flattering, comfortable, and will be on regular rotation in my closet. And added bonus is always being able to size down, right? Will everyone be able to size down? No, but I am because of having a small natural waist compared to my booty. Would I change anything? Nope! The pockets are big enough for my phone. At first, I was annoyed by the decorative buttons because they felt like nipples on a dude. They serve no purpose. But, now I love them because they break up the look of the skirt. Overall, I am very pleased with the Marsha.

Thanks so much for this review! It’s VERY helpful! I’m a bottom-heavy hourglass, too, and was on the fence on sizing with the Marsha.
