Rated 3 out of 5 by ModestMamaLisa Not 25 1/2" long as stated. Warning-back vent
This skirt is very comfortable- lightweight but not see-through which is rare. I love the pockets. Yes, it is a casual skirt, but I think that's quite clear from the picture and even the title. However, this skirt is not 25 1/2" long as stated. I measured it (I sew) and it is only 24.5 inches long. Also, there is a back vent- which I don't see written anywhere in the description. I am a modest dresser. Back vents and an inch difference in length make a difference in my decision to buy/keep skirts. For someone who is not picky about length and back slits, I think this would be a terrific, comfy and cool option.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wings23 Don't love this skirt but it might work for you
This is an ok skirt if you want something super casual and you don't mind thin elastic in your skirts. Or a big line of stitching down the front of the skirt which makes the skirt look frumpy. It is more noticeable in person than in the picture. I don't wear skirts for casual wear, I wear them to church or to work. For casual times in hot weather, I wear shorts. So I have no need for an overly casual skirt. I also tend not to like elastic waists that are too bunchy although I do like a little "stretch" in my wasitband: preferably just side inserts, back elastic only or a small amount of spandex stretch in a mostly flat band. Although this was thin elastic and looked comfortable, it wasn't. So, if like me, you don't tend towards liking a full elastic waist, this isn't the skirt for you. The material was a nice weight though, and I got the white and it was not see through like some whites are. It was a nice length that fell a little under my knees at 5'4". If you don't mind or like an elastic waist casual skirt that is a nice soft weight and good length, this might work for you. It just didn't work for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by biscaylady great for travel
I just returned from vacation and found this a comfortable and attractive garment for road trip. Much cooler than slacks and better for touring than shorts. Have washed and worn the chambray and only slight wrinkling. No slip needed and skirt hangs well. it isn't particularly "shaped" but that lets it fit many shapes and it may suit yours! Just received it in navy and light khaki. I echo the Georgia lady's comments about the suitability of these skirts for warm and humid. A nice change from the constant shorts here in Florida and can be dressed up a little. The length was fine for my 5'7". In the past I had to return the shorter version of this skirt, but this length is modest without being dowdy, in my opinion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeansRegular Awesome summer skirt
I now have this skirt in Chambray, khaki, and dark khaki. I have looked at these for years and thought they were probably thin, wrinkly cotton that would need a half slip. Boy was I wrong! I took a chance on the chambray on the daily markdown and must say that it is a great fitting and looking skirt. The fabric is a thickly woven yet soft cotton with no lycra (cooler). It does not wrinkle even with taking a nap on the couch! With the waistline worn just below the navel, the skirt comes to about where it does on the model, and I am 5'7". This length is more appropriate for me, as a doctor out in the community in which I work. The chambray, and dark and light khakis are all great neutral colors for all of my summer tops.
My only reservation (and reason for 4 stars) is that the waistline could be a bit more tapered in. I wear an XS, and I need to wear the skirt at the top of my hips to keep the waist from looking bulky, but this is the rise that I prefer in my bottoms. Still, a tapered waist would make this skirt just perfect, and make it more versatile for curvy figured gals.
To stay cool and look good all summer, these are great skirts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GeorgiaGirl72 Highly recommend
I have this in the chambray, and I recently bought the khaki and navy as well. These are so comfortable! My usual size is an XL (somewhere between a 16 & 18) and these fit very well. Not too tight, and not hugely baggy, just a little loose which is nice in humid weather. Must have!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by turtleluver great skirt
I went by other review (I'm a 12) she said Large fit well, it was baggy on me returned for medium. fabric great, cool, nice cut. I'm traveling to Hawaii with a carry-on to save airline fees, got Khaki so can mix differnt tops & tees also will be nice on plane, good quality light weight material feels good on. Really worth having a LLbean credit card cause sizing can be difficult & there's no charge to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NSBeangirl Love the skirt
This is a fabulous, all-purpose skirt. I have it in dark khaki and love it. It's comfortable. The fabric is soft. The length is perfect on me - I am wearing an XL regular and I am 5' 10" tall. When you're above average height it's so difficult to find skirts that are long enough, but this one is. I wear it a bit lower than my waist and the hem falls just below my knee. It's not too slim that you won't be able to walk, but it looks neat and tidy. But the softness and comfort is the best. Throw on a tank, cardigan and flats and it's dressy enough to wear for work in a dressy-casual office, but with a t-shirt and sandals it's good for the weekend. The price is very reasonable, even when not on sale. Love it. Thanks again LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ldinTenessee Love this skirt!
I bought this skirt in chambray and khaki last year and absolutely love it. Very comfortable, care free, great alternative to pants for hot, humid Southern summers. I'd definitely buy this again and recommend to friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great Casual Skirt
I am 5'3" and would really like this at calf length but it is not available in plus sizes....yet. I have a rather long knee replacement scar that will never fade.
I bought one in navy and another in khaki. I am ordering more in dark khaki and chambray before they are sold out. They are that comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shiftsteph Nice for summer instead of shorts
This skirt is a great value. I am 5 4 and 102 lbs so shorts make me look like a teenage at 45 years old. This skirt can be dressed up or down and I plan to order more. I got the xs petite and with the drawstring makes it fit.
