Rated 5 out of 5 by PedalGirl Exactly what I was looking for!
I have an uneven figure - petite height (5'3",) short legs, a high waist and a bit of extra weight around my midsection - that makes it hard to find skirts and dresses that fit and flatter me. This skirt is just about as close to perfect as I could hope for and I am very pleased with it.
Even for me, it fits exactly as described - sits at my natural waist and falls at the knee; not too long and not too short and flattering for someone of my height. Has a very nice drape to it as well and it nicely covers all my little imperfections. I always order petite slacks, however I went with the regular in the skirt and the length and fit are still just fine.
The material is a nice, medium-weight corduroy with a little bit of stretch to it, and is of the high quality I've come to expect from LL Bean. Looking forward to many years of wear!

Rated 5 out of 5 by oldruralshopper Nice skirt
I got this in the bordeaux color and was pleasantly surprised. I normally don't like color in skirts or pants but this is a lovely shade of red. There's not much of a blue undertone which makes it warm. I'm very happy with this skirt.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nereid Pockets and comfort beat lack of flatteringness
While this skirt's construction in the belly area doesn't make for the most flattering fit I've ever had, I have nonetheless ordered two more of these skirts in two more colours. Why? Because they're so very comfortable and functional. Perfect for my workday. Pockets, stretch, coverage, wrinkle-management: this skirt has it all. So, as much as I'd like to look slender (which, let's face it, at 5'9" and about 150 lb, I'm not), I can let that go if it means I've got a professional-enough, comfortable, practical garment. That's what this skirt is. Plus, I like the colours.

I wanted a simple skirt. This one flared out in an unflattering way. Skirt was returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PinkAndGrey Best skirt I ever owned...
I absolutely love this skirt, I have it in all colors. I wear it with opaque (fleece) stockings during the winter, and regular stockings during the spring and fall. I wear a 20, it fits true to size. My inseam is 30 inches, and it falls about an inch below my kneecap, so it's perfect. I've washed all of them many many times (I turn them inside out before I wash them), and they haven't shrunk, and they are all still very soft. I love the feel of the fabric, and the colors go with everything in my closet. I'd like to see this in more colors. Thanks, LL Bean, great skirt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by WestervilleShopper nice slim fit skirt
Slenderizing effect, trim fit, and comfortable. True to size. I have to agree with the review that it's a tad short. I am under 55 so I guess I will show some leg for now. The skirt looks longer on the model in the picture and I am only 5'4". How is that possible? The navy is very attractive and great for me - navy and cobalt are my main colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doglover70 Way To Short!
Beautiful fabric, well made skirt. Loved the Hunter Green color. I am 5'6" tall and this skirt is at least 3" to short. I am 70+ years of age, I do not wear things this short. Add those inches and it would be perfect! Would recommend with reservations about length. Very sorry to have to return. I did measure the stated length before I ordered it Thought it would work but does not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yungnomo A favorite
I love this skirt. I purchased one on hunter green and have just ordered another in brown. Very comfortable, just enough stretch and LL Bean quality through and through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by galfrommich Great quality skirt
The skirt just arrived and it fits true to size. Thick material. Will last for years. Will be nice and warm with a pair of tights in Michigan.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BruinFan Pockets don't lie flat
The skirt waist seems to be a bit large on me, but the skirt otherwise fit, but still, the pockets don't lie flat. Other than that, the material is nice and thick, but maybe a little too thick for west coast winters.
