Rated 5 out of 5áby MaryinMI Beautiful Indigo Skirt
This indigo color goes with so much- lavender, navy, plum, white. So comfy with my knee-hi boots. It stretches a bit when wearing. I should have sized down one, but it is OK.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Melannie Wonderful and colorful
The colors are alot nicer than they look in the picture. It's really easy to match with alot of colors, like, burgundy, turquoise, blue, purple, pink... and of course neutrals too. I really wasn't sure what size to get because this is my first purchase from LLBean. I ended up getting 10petite. I am 5'1'' and 125lbs, and on the curvy side. The fit turns out to be very comfortable, though it sits a little low on my hips... which is fine, especially after a big meal! The wool and construction is of superior quality. I ordered another and I can't wait! I don't find it itchy.

Rated 5 out of 5áby pinkbicycle09 Love it!
I wore this skirt for the first time today, and I can't get over how nice it looked and how spiffy it made me feel! I loved it so much that I ordered a second one -- in a different color, of course.
I'm about 5'4, and I first ordered the skirt in regular length. It was a bit too generous, so I sent it back and ordered it in the same size, but in a petite length. It fits perfectly now. So, if you're in that "gray area" between regular and petite, as I am, I'd opt for the petite length, if I were you.

Rated 3 out of 5áby MOUNTAINGIRL1986 Way too short - why isn't there a TALL version?!?
I finally decided to try this skirt even though I knew that the length of 22.5 inches would be on the short side for my height. I was hoping that if I loved the skirt and there was a generous hem I could lengthen it. I was able to get this skirt at a great price and found the length to be excessively short but the fit and quality were wonderful so decided to keep it and have it lengthened. That was almost a disaster. LL Bean clips the inside fabric on the vent of the skirt so lengthening it is very difficult. I found a talented tailor who bailed me out but I will never again attempt this with a LL Bean skirt and would strongly advise anyone else against trying this as well. Why, oh why, can you not simply make a 24" version of this skirt like every other manufacturer on the internet? 22" is nearly scandalous for many people and your reviews seem to indicate that many others agree that the length could be a factor. I wonder how many sales you have lost because of people like me who simply click past the skirt because it is too short. Please pay attention to your customers. If you take the time to offer a petite version why would you not also offer a tall version?!?

Rated 1 out of 5áby Fettle Extremely scratchy
I could not wait to TEAR it off! Even lined it was so incredibly scratchy. I believe people either have a tolerance to wool or they don't. If you don't, then would be a great skirt. Not for me.

Rated 5 out of 5áby gdlnd Love this skirt!
I just received this skirt today and when I tried it on, it looks fantastic!! My husband even commented on how good it looks. It is very flattering to my body shape. I was afraid the size 10 would not fit me, as my waist is bigger than 28 inches, but it looks great and fits really well. I went with the hip size instead of the waist size and I am thrilled I did.

Rated 3 out of 5áby MaineMom63 Sizing way off and fit is odd.
As someone else reported, the waist is a full 4 inches larger than the size chart says that size fits. I'm not sure how the people who say it fits perfectly figured that. I even called to make sure I'd get the right size next time and was told that the actual waist size of the 10 was 32 inches, which is much more than the 29.5 waist that it quotes in the chart. So I got a size 4, which seemed ludicrous to me, but it does fit my waist. I'm still not sure that I'll keep it though because it just looks odd to me. It hugs me in the front in a way that is unflattering, and I am not fat by any means. I have a natural woman's shape. The fabric and quality of the manufacturing is wonderful, and the indigo looks just like in the picture.

Rated 4 out of 5áby nfrieden wonderful color and shape but very scratchy
I bought a blue one and loved it so much that I bought a red and blue one. Unfortunately the wool is really scratchy.
But it is the right size, the right shape and pretty colors

Rated 4 out of 5áby ProfG Inconsistent sizing
I love my Andover navy blue skirt - it was in heavy rotation through this colder than usual winter. However, when I ordered a second skirt in the same size, but another color, it was far too small. I could barely zip it, let alone sit down in it! Just to be sure that I didn't need to cut back on the calories, I tried on the navy one again, and it fits fine. The sable one will be going back, and I don't think I'll exchange for a size up at this time - I think the universe is trying to tell me I really only need one of these skirts ;-).

Rated 4 out of 5áby NataliesMom Looks much better on me than on the hanger
I consider myself pear-shaped (27-inch waist and 37.5-inch hip) and at first I was hesitant to order it because of the reviews mentioning the skirt would not look good on somebody who is curvy. However I love wool material and thought the color of the skirt was pretty, so I ordered the size 4 Indigo when it went on sale. When I received it, at first I was disappointed, because on the website, I thought it was a purple skirt with gray undertone. However what I saw in person was a gray skirt with pink stripes. I left it in the closet for about three weeks, waiting to return it to the store. But right before I did, I decided to put it on, at least giving it a try. I'm very glad I did, because it fits perfectly! I usually wear an Oxford shirt tucked in and tights when I wear wool skirts in the winter anyways, so I haven't felt the scratchiness of the wool while wearing it. Also the material is thicker than my other wool skirts. I have to mention that because of the wide waist band on the skirt, it would be more comfortable on somebody who has flat abs, which I have, but it gets a bit tight right after meals.
