Rated 5 out of 5áby TropicalTeacher Even better than expected
The only reason I say this is better than expected is related to the weight of the fabric for what I needed. I teach in SE Asia and it is hot! Linen is my best friend here so I was somewhat apprehensive about ordering twill but I wanted a khaki color and liked the idea of the comfort waist and also the fact it had pockets (office keys). I love this skirt! It is comfortable, and I wore it all day at work today and it did not look like I had been sitting in a puddle! It is NOT bulky at the waist, really nice shape. As for fit, I recently lost 30 lb and have the waist that recalls having kids. I ordered a 12 and it is perfect. I am 5'6" and at the moment about 154 lb. The heavier weight that still works good in this climate would also be great for any other season back home.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Learner Flattering/comfortable
I love it! I ordered the size 18 in tan and black. I am 5' 7" and weigh 184-ish with a tummy pooch. My measurements fell exactly within the size 18. This skirt is flattering in spite of my pooch!...not boxy, not frumpy. Understated and contemporary. It falls just at the knee and doesn't creep up when I sit down. No pocket problems. With the size 18, I don't need the stretch of the comfort waist, so perhaps that's why the pockets lie flat.

Rated 1 out of 5áby ncbarbwire Close, but no dice.
I really, really want to like this skirt: its silhouette is classic, it's made of durable twill, it comes in stalwart colors, and it should be timeless.
However, the elastic panels make the waistline needlessly bulky, make the pockets pooch outwards, and actually impede the comfortable fit of every belt I've tried to wear with it.
I'm not entirely crazy about the shorter cut, but I could deal with that if only the skirt's waistline could come to terms with mine. Ironic that on me, the "Comfort Fit" is anything but!

Rated 4 out of 5áby Devora These run very small
I normally wear a size 6, but had to return these for a size 8 which fits perfectly. I love these skirts, they are classic and wash well, but this year's batch of 6's are really 4's.

Rated 5 out of 5 Perfect Skirt
This is the perfect casual skirt. I am 5' tall and weigh 135 pounds and I ordered the 10 in regular and it fits great. I went with regular because I like my skirt to come just past the knee. The quality is really good and the band is so comfortable. I bought three and I am going to order two more today. This skirt will not disappoint.

Rated 5 out of 5áby JennyBr Really nice skirt
I've been buying a lot of clothes lately, due to both a loss of weight and a new job that requires less casual clothes than I usually wore as a stay at home mom. This skirt is one of my favorite new pieces. Just a nice straight, basic cut that is very flattering, and fit in my usual size. I am 5'4", and I bought the petite, with it hitting just above my knee. Looks good with both tee shirts and with nicer shirts and cardigans. I'm going to but a couple more colors as these will go nicely right through fall, depending on what they're paired with.

Rated 5 out of 5áby cbbamb Classic and timeless
I love this skirt! I am a teacher and it is perfect for casual dress. I say casual, but depending on the shirt and shoes you can really dress it up! I am 5"6 150 pounds and the size 6 fits nicely. I would like to see a dark grey and a dark cement color so I can buy more!

Rated 4 out of 5áby valleygal Well made but going back
This skirt is well made and I liked the hidden elastic inserts. I'm a petite 5 ft and 103 lbs. I ordered a 4P and it came to right below my knee and was a bit too large in the hips. I really wanted the skirt to work but it is just too long and large.

Rated 5 out of 5áby SusanfromAZ Great skirt
This skirt is comfortable, well made and washes well. The length is perfect not 'frumpy' or mini.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Teaqueen perfect
The perfect skirt for running around town, especially when paired with a T-shirt or Bean's French sailor shirt. I wear it with a blouse for spring/summer Sunday worship. Wash and wear ... a light press is what it gets for church; I wear it just as it comes out of the dryer when doing errands. I just had a total knee replacement and this is much easier to get in and out of than jeans.
