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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BrooklynFig Fits perfectly
This skirt was my postpartum savior. It has pockets, is a decent length, and it looks like I tried, and I can move comfortably in it. It was also one size too big, so I was less freaked out post baby. Six months later, I came back to order the smaller size and in denim, and it's gone! So sad. I ordered the coral, but I would have liked the denim too.
True A-line skirts with pockets are so rare. Please bring it back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MaryFloridaDiver Very small waist
Very small waist with no give. Flares out more at the bottom that the picture shows. UGLY looking. returned. Made me feel claustrophobic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chabothiker My mother loves it!
I bought this skirt for my mother and she wears it almost ever day, alternating with the Bean's Gored Skirt in denim. The skirt fits perfectly, true to size, neither too tight nor too loose. The length is appropriate for an older woman (not too short!). It is well made with good quality fabric. My mother prefers wearing skirts to pants, and is able to hike and garden in this skirt. Yet it is nice enough to wear for a dinner-out in the evening. It is comfortable and yet good-looking and fits well with her outdoorsy Northern California lifestyle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JWfromNJ Large waist
The skirt looked as good as the twill pants, and the front and back pockets were functional and in good locations.
Cons: The size 8 waist was 32" instead of 29". There were no belt loops to hold it up. I didn't want to order a smaller size because the size 8 was already above my knees. I returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ILoveBoatandToteBags Great skirt
My daughter loves this skirt. She is a HS senior and is beginning to collect her college wardrobe for next year. It's very good quality, will last a long time, and is a nice modest length.
