Rated 5 out of 5 by Dutchie05 the perfect skort
This skort is a great fit. It comes just below my waist, has a stretch to the material and is a perfect length for my 5'7" height. I am in my late 50's and the length is above the knee but long enough I don't look like I'm trying to wear the kids clothes. I bought another skort from LLBean last year, it looked similar but had no stretch to the fabric and gapped at the waist. This one is perfect

Rated 4 out of 5 by minmass Worked well
Good solution for tropic weight travel shorts. Comfortable, fit was consistent with jeans, length was good for short person.
No wrinkle in suitcase, but more wrinkled than optimal after wash

I am an average size 10 and I would probably need at least a 14.

Rated 2 out of 5 by lupechenille wanted skort for outdoors and around-town errands.
something was off in the construction of this, the front flap never lies flat . this makes the skort look somewhat askew when worn. was also cut rather on the short side which accentuated the problem

This was my first 'skirt-short' purchase. I needed something for my wardrobe that had carryover from activity to shopping etc. This skort fits that bill perfectly. Great fit and has adjustable waist bands that I trust won't need to be put to use. It's comfortable and feminine too. The color is good for me because so many of my tops compliment with it. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the short part - for me I might like a skort with a demi short without a zipper. I'm super happy with all the zipper pockets that lay flush and zip closed for security. Great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LoveMostLLBean Think I'll keep them..... :-)
I purchased two of these, so, that I would have a "fast hand wash" "skirt" for traveling in our travel trailer (jeans are great, but, are not "easy" to wash and dry quickly). I purchased my "jean" size, but, they fit like shorts, rather, than with the slight ease of a skirt. So, I purchased one size up, which "float" better across my hips and heavier thighs. I have to admit that I had some second thoughts about having an extra piece of fabric across the front and back of the shorts to make the "skirt", but, I really do like the appearance when they are on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pdsqueen I LOVE these skorts!
I had bought 3 pairs of these last year in all the colors. They have a comfort waist that is adjustable that is such a fabulous idea. I have since lost a lot of weight and I had to order a size smaller, so I ordered them in all the colors again. I am keeping both sizes "just in case" . I wear these to work all summer long, as I work in an office. I highly recommend these. They are true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fallcityfoodie My First Skort
I love this skort. I read the reviews before making a decision and I do understand that some body types look better in skorts than others. Thank goodness I have the right body type and I plan on this skort being a big part of my active life wardrobe when we go on our 30 day cruise to South and Central America in March. The sizing was true; I ordered a 6 as is my usual, default size. I appreciate the adjustable waist band as skort was a little big in the lower waist. I was comparing this to the TropicWear Skort, which stated that the inseam length was 61/2". This skort did not give inseam, it stated overall length was 18 3/4". Would be good if both use same measure to compare.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SkortGal Disappointed in this skort
I am a big fan of wearing skorts and of LL Bean. When I saw this skort on their website, I loved it! When I got it in the mail, it was a different story. I had read all of the previous reviews about how the front flap hangs wrong and how unflattering the skort is, but I thought I'd give it a try anyway. That was a big mistake. When I tried it on, it felt super comfortable, but looked awful. The reviews were right - The front flap just doesn't hang right. I think it has something to do with the seem on the right side of the flap near the pocket...It just hangs there and is very unflattering. If you look closely at the image on their website you can see it as well (look near the pocket on the left), but it looked a lot worse in person. I don't recommend this skort and have since returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MichelleMcD Great alternative to shorts for those more modest
My post-menopause body isn't quite as trim in the belly as it once was, and I'm more comfortable these days in skirts instead of shorts. This skirt is a great alternative to shorts for walking and hiking, and it's a good length...not a mini but hits mid-thigh on me and covers my rear end. It looks athletic and practical, but not frumpy.
