Rated 5 out of 5 by Detalumis Basic Straight Skirt
I was afraid to order because of some of the comments. I have an actual waistline and have problems with the hips on pencil skirts fitting too tight. This is not a "sexy" tight skirt, it's a modest straight not pencil shape, not too long, it grazed the top of my knees at 5' 6.5". If you have actual hips, so the old style curvy figure before the word was usurped, with a defined waistline, it will fit you but not tightly, if you are straight shaped you may have to size down. I like it for what it is, a basic comfortable skirt. The waist is a bit loose for me but not hugely. I will likely order it in another colour.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lemonycat74 It is too long - or it is too big around waist
I really wanted to like this skirt, but when I tried it, it looks nowhere near what's presented by the model in photographs. The skirt fell below my knees ... and it may be partly because it doesn't stay on my waist in the first place, it's too big for me around waist and it doesn't have drawstrings or belt holes or anything to keep the skirt up. This skirt makes me look like a grandma.
The fabric is very soft and the skirt feels very comfortable. It doesn't look very warm though if you are thinking about wearing it over tights in cold weather (I live in upstate NY)>
I really wanted to like this ..... but it's just that I look really dumb in this skirt ... I have to return. I wanted to exchange to a shorter size,but you don't have petit size for this, and I got XS, the smallest size.
I'm 5'6, 120lbs - maybe longer torso and shorter legs but .... :( sad sad sad I couldn't use this one.

So sorry to say that I just do not like this skirt. I do Love LL Bean, but this skirt was just not for me. It is not flattering and sort of reminded me of a uniform. Sorry, but it just may work for another lady!

Loved the fabric and everything except the way it hung...gave me bulges where I have none and goodness knows I have bulges, but not there! Had to return it. I would recommend it to be tried on before buying..otherwise a very nice skirt.

Great skirt: nice fit, comfy, can be worn with several types of fabrics. I got the black as well. Also, perfect length for my 5'4-1/2 frame. Hits the middle of the knee when standing so it still covers the knee when sitting.

I got this in black and grey, too. Very easy to wear, fabric a tad light for winter in New York but its quite doable with tights and boots. Should be a great year-round skirt. Flattering fit, very comfortable, goes with just about everything. I love how the fabric stretches. Washes well. Perfect length. I paired this with tights and clogs or tights and boots. Love it.

It is advertised as a perfect fit and I must agree. It lays very nicely and doesn't wrinkle. Love it!

With a nice pair of tall boots, this skirt will become one of my "go-to" items for work or parties. It is ample and forgiving, and works with a mid-length slip to avoid static and bunching. I haven't noticed any wrinkles, and the length is flattering. I am 5'4" and 140 lbs. and the medium works just fine.
