Rated 4 out of 5 by ELDShopper A Winner!
This is a lovely skirt, well made and classic. Though I normally wear a 6 petite in pants, I ordered the skirt in 4 petite, and it fits fine. My only complaint is that it arrived quite wrinkled - not surprising, as it was folded and packaged into a small plastic bag. This method may be OK for casual shirts, sweaters, etc. but these better items should be packaged with more care. Perhaps in a box??

Rated 1 out of 5 by TKP518 Did not like
I ordered a size 12 in this skirt since the sizing chart said a 12 would fit a 31 Inch waist. When I tried on the skirt it was huge in the waist and when I measured the actual waistband it measured 34 inches. The skirt did fit in the hips. I have returned it for a refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by classicdoc Thank you, LLBean!
Classic. Perfect fit, fabric, color and length for professional dress. A really important detail is that there are no irritating elastic inserts at the waist! The lining is beautifully done -- comes virtually to the hem, so it protects anyone even slightly sensitive to wool. The cut is straight, but not confining when walking or sitting. Washes beautifully. It should pack and travel well. I would buy it in additional colors -- camel, light gray, brown, black, pin stripe .... It would be great to make a size 2 available.

LOVE this skirt! It's a very dressy, classic look. I'm 5'4" 145ish pounds - normally wear a size 8-10. Ordered the 10 petite and it fits perfectly, just slightly above my knee. It's not roomy - more form fitting for sure, but not tight either. I was nervous about those side slit type pockets - thought they'd bunch out at my hips, especially when I sat - but they don't because they're slightly toward the front, rather than totally on the side. The fabric is substantial. I plan to wear it with a white blouse, cardi and cute black boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Valleygirl True to my "real" size
I have bounced around sizes with LL Bean clothes the past few years all the way from a 6 in some modern fit (lower rise)stretch jeans to size 12 in higher waisted skirts. I bought this skirt in size 10 which I consider to be my true size and it fits. The gray wool fabric is of high quality and reminds me of my old school uniform, so I would class this as "preppy" chic. It will look great with a white blouse, black tights and boots.
