Rated 5 out of 5 by Rainbow53 Classic Skirt
I have Bean's Gored Skirt in coral and black, and I'm now ordering the tidal blue. This skirt is great for my pear-shaped figure, without being too full. I like the fact that I don't need to wear a slip underneath - the material is heavy enough not to see through. After several washing's, the twill material has become very soft, yet it retains its body. Next season I hope to add more colors as they become available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JackieRR Just misses being perfect
This is a nice skirt, well cut and unbelievably well-made for the price. My only major complaint is the pockets, which don't show much in the photo online but do show when you are wearing it. They give the skirt a more casual look than I had hoped for.
Also worth noting, although this is a matter of taste, that the twill is fairly light and isn't really suited to winter or even cooler Fall wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SHERRIB Great skirt!
I bought 3 of these: denim, teal, & black.
I'm 5' tall and wanted the longer length so I didn't purchase the petite size -- they come to just below my knees. I have one minor issue with the denim skirt: it fits me looser in the waist, maybe because of the difference in material. Since there's no belt loops, I wear my husband's suspenders with the denim skirt so it will hang straight. (Without the suspenders it noticeably hangs lower in the front.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nicochan Too good to pass up!
This is such a fashionable skirt! I am surprised it has not yet sold out! It spiced up my wardrobe and was easy to wear in the cooler weather, because the fabric is substantial. The coral color is a pretty neutral color. Be it, the waist is snug, so may look nice on more of an hourglass figure, rather than a straight body type.

Rated 5 out of 5 by debnewyork Terrific skirt!!
I love this skirt...have every color. The fit is perfect, lots of room to work in and the pockets are great!!! The first style years back had no pockets but this makes it a great added feature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AgingGracefully Sensible Classic
This is a great skirt - not particularly fashionable, and that's just fine. The gores give it some fullness and in the heavy fabric it is a bit stiff. Might be better as just an A-line without gores. BUT, it does seem to be getting softer -- washed 3 times now. It's a generous size 6. That is my usual size, but I wish I had tried a 4. Unfortunately, I just tried to order one in a 4 and they're gone! I sure hope Bean brings this back. I have the tan color. It goes with everything and is a modest length, just covers my knee (I'm 5'4).

Rated 5 out of 5 by SouthernMainer27 My favorite skirt
If you are looking for a slightly full a-line skirt that will hit your knees, this skirt is the one you are looking for.
I first purchased this skirt in army green on sale for 50% off. I loved that first one so much that I've purchased two more (for full price, something I never do!). This skirt fits my pear shape nicely, and hits my knees without looking matronly, something hard to do on my 5'10" frame.
This time, I purchased the tidal blue, and it is a blue that can be a pop of color or act as a neutral like a pair of jeans.
This is my go to skirt to wear to work during the summer. Keep putting out different colors, LL Bean, and I will keep buying them!

Rated 3 out of 5 by MarinaMama too much flare at the bottom
This skirt could have been what I was looking for, but there was just too much fabric at the bottom. I would prefer it more A-line and less full. If it were a thinner, softer fabric (think fluttery) then this design would work for me. But the fabric, although nice and substantial, is too thick for that cut. I love the pockets and the length, but it's going back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jazubean A wardrobe essential
This is a wardrobe must. Very flattering, great fabric, fantastic color, (coral), wonderful fit, the length is modest enough for work and play. And... It had pockets. Oh how I wish there were more skirts like this and in more colors. LLBean, please, please, please offer this skirt in more colors. I would love it in black, tan, mallard green, cornflower blue, navy, dark purple and olive, to start.
