Rated 4 out of 5 by FtWorthian A winner
Love this skirt for travel. No fuss; trim and neat. I'd say it runs large--I'm usually a 10 and this skirt in a 10 is quite roomy--but great for walking, moving.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ellebe Good skirt overall...except for the pockets...
Okay, I bought this skirt in a size 12 Regular in stone, khaki, red, and french blue. It's a great skirt in so many ways - - exceptionally well-made, comes out of the dryer without a hint of wrinkling, good colors, high-quality materials, and nice extra touches. The problem with this skirt is the pockets that "pooch out" most unattractively, because the pocket construction is dovetailed in with the comfort-waist feature. I am a hour-glass figure, veering toward pear-shaped, and when I put the skirts on, the pockets would stick way out. Maybe if my waist and hips weren't so many inches apart, this wouldn't happen. I was wicked bummed to think of mailing them back, esp. 'cause I'd already washed them and really shouldn't send them back. So I found a fix: I took a needle and thread and manually sewed the pockets closed. The skirt gives a smooth, long, lean line now when I'm wearing an un-tucked shirt and because I used thread that exactly matches the material and a very fine stitch, I can wear shirts tucked-in too; you really can't tell the pockets have been sewn closed. So, if this is your problem but you otherwise love the skirt, give my solution a try!

This skirt fits so well , it's perfect, exactly what I was looking for.
I was leery of buying clothes on line but couldn't find what I wanted anywhere so I decided to give LL Bean a try and I'm totally satisfied.

This skirt is my standard for out and about in the summer. It's cool and far more flattering than shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NSBeangirl excellent basic skirt
I bought 2 of these - navy and stone. They are great for most occasions and I've worn the stone coloured one a lot - just got the navy today. I'm 5' 10" and although I'd like another inch or two in length, they are pretty darn good!

Rated 3 out of 5 by jerseygrl Could be perfect except for type of pockets
This skirt has many nice features. Good material, doesn't wrinkle much, has stretch for comfort. This would be my favorite summer skirt except for one problem - the type of pockets. Because it has slash pockets on the sides, they stick out & make you look "hippy" instead of giving you a streamlined appearance. The skirt is definitely not too small on me - it's a little loose in the waist and definitely not tight in the hips, so getting another size would not solve the problem. NOTE TO LL BEAN: this skirt would be perfect if it had FRONT WELT POCKETS instead of these slash pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stephala Beautiful skirt!
I am 5' tall and weigh 126 and wear a size 8. I normally would have ordered the petite, however, I took the advice of another reviewer who said her knees weren't quite what they were when she was younger and ordered the regular size 8. She was right. The length is perfect. Hits the bottom of my knee and is age appropriate for me. This is a beautifully made skirt. Everything says quality. (I received the Navy and can't wait until the Stone arrives in July).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Susanproessional Comfortable, professional, easy to care for
The skirt fits well and looks very nice with a blouse for work, a polo for play. The waist stretches with you but does not look tacky. Very pleased with purchase and would recommend for summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tennessee37664 Good basic skirt
Well made skirt. Very basic style which was what I wanted. Comes out of the dryer wrinkle-free. After looking at the sizing chart I ordered an 8 but a 6 would have been a better fit.

This skirt fits well, is comfortable, and can be worn straight from the dryer. I liked it so well I bought a second one in a different color. It is the basis of my summer wardrobe
