Rated 4 out of 5áby writercook Best Feature: Let Down-able
I bought this skirt in both "Flint" (very pale grey) and "Dark Plum," and I love the fit. The style is simple -- pockets!!!! -- but as with many Bean skirts, it's an inch or two shorter than I am willing to wear. The good news is that the raw edge at the bottom is turned up an inch+ twice. I was able to rip out the machine-stitched hem, finish the raw edge, and re-hem with only one fold. I'm wearing the flint skirt as I type. After careful pressing and going through the washer/dryer once after my alteration, I can see a faint "pressing line" with tiny "dots" from the stitching at the original hem site. Frankly, it looks like a purposeful design feature, so I'm calling it a success. :) I expect with continued washings/dryings it will disappear. So, good job LL Bean with having a generous hem allowance, but even better I'd appreciate you paying attention to the many customers who don't wish to show their kneed when they sit down. Customers, give the review a "like" if you agree.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Devora Runs very small
I bought this skirt in both khaki and moss in a size 6. Both colors are great and I like the cut. But, I returned them for a size 8 which fits perfectly. Order a size up and you will be happy.

This has the best waist band ever. It fits perfectly, waists are usually too big for me so I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5áby mtnwoman Disappointed with color change
Did you order Easy Stretch in the past and loved the stone color? Whalebone is not the same color. Whalebone is much more yellow. Just thought it would be helpful if you knew of yet another of LLBean's many unwelcome changes.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Fionaloves2eat Love it! Stylish and versatile!
Comfy, stylish and versatile! Looks great with a fitted top and jazzy necklace or scarf. Nice alternative to shorts. I am 5'6 and got a petite- the length is perfect. The stretchy waistband is wonderful for my "curvy" body- no gapping.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Whitecat50 Not what I expected
I LOVE my LL Bean denim skirts, and I was hopeful that these would be similar. I ordered 2 colors in size 10 ( I am normally an 8 or a 10, 5'9") and I will be returning them. Too tight, don't like the elastic waist. Length is ok, but shorter than my denim skirts.

Rated 4 out of 5áby RabbitsMom13 Runs small, but don't let that stop you
Before I submitted my order, I checked everybody's comments. True, they run small, but the waistband elastic was not the horror story I'd read about. What I did notice was, the skirt I got in Stone was smaller (actually, just perfect) than the Khaki one, but the difference wasn't so significant that I considered sending it back #we all have days when we need a little extra room). The fabric is soft, but not see-through, which was a concern with the lighter color. Actually a nice weight for hot climates, like where I live. The only thing that gave me any bit of dismay was the fact that I had to order a 20. 20???!!!! LL Bean, please consider changing the size labels, if only for my own sense of pride.

Rated 2 out of 5áby HChase Wrong Fit
Darn -- a sturdy useful-looking skirt that does not fit! Yes, it is short -- even on me a short person but I liked that part. However, the waist is huge and the hips are skimpy. I'm wearing plus sizes these days but I still need garments that recognize hips and waist are not the same.
