Rated 5 out of 5 by JamesGrandmamma Great Everything Skirt!
I usually do not buy pants or skirts for myself without trying them on. I took a chance with this skirt and it is wonderful! It is very true to L.L. Bean Sizing. It is nice and long - mid calf (which I wanted). It seems as if it will wash and dry without a problem - and is also such lovely quality. Once again L.L. Bean comes through! I ordered another one in the Raisin Brown - This one was the Navy Blue. Thanks for a GREAT product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sarahsgarden521 Skirt is true to size
love this skirt. I bought it as I only wear skirts and this is a nice, modest length. Wear it to work always as it is durable and professional also.
Read other reviews and bought a larger size.... what a mistake. Had to return them for smaller size. I wear a size 6 and this skirt is true to size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Roxiejewel Flattering Fit
After 282 reviews of this skirt, I will chime in on the hopes that the product development team will read this. I wear a lot of skirts, and prefer a straight cut with a slight "A" line that hits mid-calf. Such a skirt is hard to find! It was a happy day when I found this one, and bought it in black to check it out. The fit of the skirt is very flattering, the fabric is just the right weight and softness, and it is well-made. It washes beautifully and doesn't need ironing, although I do, because I like the "just ironed" look. The hidden comfort waist is a clever design, although I don't need the extra room, and so I feel like I have to "hike up" the skirt all day. (I fixed that with a few stitches.) Offering this skirt with a traditional waistband would be good. I will be buying more colors, but I'm only giving it 4 stars because it is not offered in Indigo, as the pants are.

Great fit and fabric! Just wish it came in knee length! Would also like more styles available in this Bayside twill fabric.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mesha1 Bad sizing.
I like the skirt but am very disappointed that you do not make this in Women's sizes. There really should not be a difference between a womens 20 and a misses 20, but for some reason there is. I had to return the skirt because of the sizing. As these skirts are very hard to find I am very disappointed.

I have this skirt in black ordered last year. This year the same skirt raison brown is at least two sizes smaller than last years skirt. Twice return having to pay return cost twice. The description should indicate this size problem

I ordered 2 of these skirts for my daughter for work and they are EVERYTHING the catalogue described. They are so comfortable to wear and are wrinkle resistant. They wash up well and look nice when you wear them. I just ordered 2 pairs of the same pants for my son-in-law because of the way the skirts are. Thank you for making such quality items.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PetXtraSmall Dependable, but . . .
A terrific skirt and one I depend on most of each week, but it could use some tweaking. For one thing, the new anti-wrinkle material is too "crisp" compared to the cotton/poly of old, one of which I still have after over 10 years! My old one washes beautifully and I don't have to put it in the dryer for the wrinkles to come out; I just hang it up, smooth it with my hands front and back, and it hangs out very well. This new kind stays wrinkled unless I put it in the dryer, a bore, because then I have to be there to take it out or defeat the purpose.
The skirt also is bulkier around the waist because of the stretchy insert; I'd rather have the old elastic in back which served very well. Also I had to order this skirt in a regular instead of the old petite because the new petite was shorter than I wanted. The new regular is 1/2 inch longer than the old but I'm happy with it because the material's also heavier, making for a warmer skirt in fall/winter/spring season. I'm one who likes long skirts and am glad to see them maybe coming back a little.
Best of all, I've tried all kinds of other skirts from different vendors and none fit or wear or look as well. Thanks, Bean's!

Rated 5 out of 5 by gardening4you What a great skirt in every aspect!
This is a VERY comfortable skirt, does not seem to attract or hold dirt, washes up nicely, on occasion may need a light touch-up with the iron when I don't get it from the dryer right away. Always looks nice. Does not wrinkle easily. I love that the waist expands on those "feeling full" days! Nicely tailored. Can't say enough about this skirt. LOVE this skirt!
I ordered it in raisin, expecting a brown, but it is more like a dark maroon. It took some getting used to because it was such a different color than I am used to, but it has grown on me and now I really like it. I find that I can even wear some shades of orange with it, surprisingly!
