Sizing help!

If a few people would help me out I would really appreciate it. I'm trying to get an idea of skirt measurements from "average" sized lolitas for some skirts I'm making to sell/trade. Eventually I will do a few size ranges (s, m, l, xl) depending on who wants to buy one, but for the first time out I just want to stick with a m-l size.

I've noticed from most sales posts that the average sized waist for lolitas in the US is about 26-32. My skirts will be half elastic in the back, and have removable ties, so they will be able to fit a bit of a range of sizes. I'm trying to keep the median in the 26-32 range.

If any girls with a 26-32in waist would like to help, please grab the skirt that fits you best and lay it down flat. Measure the length (from waistband to bottom of ruffle/lace) and the width at the bottom of the skirt. Please specify if the skirt you are measuring is brand, commissioned, custom sized(F+F, ITS, etc.), or self-made.

Thanks x1000 for anyone that can help out!
