I actually like the skirt Ven made for her. She has a distinct waistline. A black top would have done the trick.
As a large girl myself, I wouldn't want a slit on my skirt going that high. Plus it seems inappropriate for work. I would not feel confident wearing a skirt like that. I'd only feel cheap.
Besides that, heavy people don't want to wear all black all the time. It's depressing enough being overweight, fighting self-esteem issues, and having people picking on you without dressing like you're in mourning, too.
I think it's more of a personal taste thing, though. I have a feeling that even if I was skinny, I would be self-conscious and uncomfortable wearing a slitted skirt like that. Maybe if it was a short slit, backed with fabric or on the side I would be ok with it.
