Rated 5 out of 5 by MissJeepGirl17 LOVE this skirt!!!!!
I haven't worn a skirt in maybe 30 years, and tried this on in the Freeport store on a whim, in August, and fell in love!! I am 5'5", size 12, and got a petite, as I wanted it a bit shorter than knee length. I have worn it twice, to school-am a substitute teacher, and have gotten compliments on it. The fit is perfect, and am going to wear it with tights this fall. Please make more colors-would love to have a black and a navy.

The waist band is too tight and so is the skirt. I bought another jeans skirt that is the same size and waist is way too loose. Very disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wings23 Cute skirt falls short
This is a cute little skirt with belt loops and pockets. I seek out skirts with belt loops and pockets because of my job. The material is soft, but there were too many seams. This would have been nicer with less pieces of fabric. I am 5' 4" and ordered petite because they were out of regular. Bad choice, it ended up too short for me. It fell like it falls in the picture, but I like at least another 2 inches on my skirts. The main thing I didn't like about this skirt surprised me. The full elastic waist inside. I have pants with waists like that and they don't bother me but this did. It itched and the edges of the elastic (which are not sewn into the skirt but literally on the back) hurt. Back it is going.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Texan65 Great skirt!
I love this skirt. It fits me perfectly. I have bought about three other denim skirts from other stores but they never fit in the waist or hips.Because of the hidden elastic in the waist and the stretch material throughout the skirt it fits me just the way I like it. Also, I am in my 60's and the other skirts I have bought are too short. This length is perfect for me and I don't feel like I am wearing an "old lady" skirt (sorry). I can wear it with sandals in the summer and with boots in the winter. Love it. I wish it came is other colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Titi sporty yet feminine
This skirt was a great find for me. The petite length and hidden elastic waist make the 6P it a great fit for my 5'2" frame. I like that it is a shorter length yet provides good coverage. The seaming and other details give this skirt a sporty look, yet it is trim and feminine. More comfortable and cooler than shorts as well. Should be fine in the fall with a sweater or fleece as well. Thanks for all the petite sizing LL!

Rated 4 out of 5 by cogscilibrarian nice skirt, wrong color
I was hoping this would be closer to a navy, as I really wanted a summer navy skirt. This is not it, and I already have a nice skirt in this color, which LLBean calls "deepwater blue" so this one is going back. The fit is nice tho - the 4 petite is actually a smidge snug, which is very unusual. The waist is tapered, which is also unusual, and suits my slim waist and wide hips (without looking bad). I wish I liked the color more!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Happy25y Snug in the waist
This is a very flattering denim skirt, just what I was looking for. I like the style, the length (right at the knee) and the fit - except for the waist. I feel a bit squeezed so I will be exchanging the 8 for a 10. The size chart is not consistent with the waist fit, possibly due to the elastic sewn on the inside of the waistband. I would recommend sizing up if you are in between or close to the measurements. All in all, though, this skirt is a plus!

Rated 1 out of 5 by favoritefitfan Very unflattering and matronly compared to favorit
this year's "classic" fit skirt is very unflattering and matronly looking compared to last year's "favorite" fit version of the skirt. This year's version sits very high on the waist vs last year's that sat lower on waist; "favorite" fit was also was much more flattering fit in the cut along the hip
LLBEAN - please bring back the "favorite" fit version of the chino skirt

Rated 4 out of 5 by SeaGlassMom Perfect for School
As a school nurse, I need clothes that look neat and professional, but don't cost a fortune. This skirt has convenient pockets and I can scoot down to kid level without worrying about too much "exposure." For me, this is a very acceptable replacement for the Bayside Twill.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BeanBirdWatcher Not My Style
This skirt lacked the sleek shape, and versatility of Bean's short classic Bayside Twill skirts, that used to be offered in regular waist, and full range of colors. Those went from office, to field, to a night our easily because of their trim, classic shape. I found this boxy, baggy and shapeless and returned in both colors. Please bring back the shorter Bayside Twills, you've got buyers!
