Rated 5 out of 5 by bluecanoe Great skirt.
I own several LL Bean skirts and once again this skirt is a winner.
I am 5'4" and weigh about 150 lbs and consistently find the size 10-reg skirt from LL Bean fits perfectly. At 5'4" I am on the cusp of reg/petite for many brands but find I prefer the slightly longer length of the reg skirts. If you prefer your skirts slightly shorter then you might want the petite.
This is a classic skirt that, depending on what you wear it with, can be worn year round.
This is the first time I have ordered a "comfort waist" and I wasn't sure if I would like it. It fits nicely and ensures the skirt remains fitted regardless. That means no pinching and no "gapping" which I like. The elastic is of a matching fabric but at times, if you move, it is noticeable. If you are wearing a sweater, no worries. But if you are wearing a tucked-in shirt you will probably want to wear a belt.
On the whole a great skirt. I have bought two.

This skirt is a great buy. It washed well and dries with little or no ironing. They are so comfortable I wish they came in more colors. I presently have three. I wear them all year round.

I usually do not buy pants or skirts for myself without trying them on. I took a chance with this skirt and it is wonderful! It is very true to L.L. Bean Sizing. It is nice and long - mid calf (which I wanted). It seems as if it will wash and dry without a problem - and is also such lovely quality. Once again L.L. Bean comes through! I ordered another one in the Raisin Brown - This one was the Navy Blue. Thanks for a GREAT product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sarahsgarden521 Skirt is true to size
love this skirt. I bought it as I only wear skirts and this is a nice, modest length. Wear it to work always as it is durable and professional also.
Read other reviews and bought a larger size.... what a mistake. Had to return them for smaller size. I wear a size 6 and this skirt is true to size.

After 282 reviews of this skirt, I will chime in on the hopes that the product development team will read this. I wear a lot of skirts, and prefer a straight cut with a slight "A" line that hits mid-calf. Such a skirt is hard to find! It was a happy day when I found this one, and bought it in black to check it out. The fit of the skirt is very flattering, the fabric is just the right weight and softness, and it is well-made. It washes beautifully and doesn't need ironing, although I do, because I like the "just ironed" look. The hidden comfort waist is a clever design, although I don't need the extra room, and so I feel like I have to "hike up" the skirt all day. (I fixed that with a few stitches.) Offering this skirt with a traditional waistband would be good. I will be buying more colors, but I'm only giving it 4 stars because it is not offered in Indigo, as the pants are.

Great fit and fabric! Just wish it came in knee length! Would also like more styles available in this Bayside twill fabric.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mesha1 Bad sizing.
I like the skirt but am very disappointed that you do not make this in Women's sizes. There really should not be a difference between a womens 20 and a misses 20, but for some reason there is. I had to return the skirt because of the sizing. As these skirts are very hard to find I am very disappointed.

I have this skirt in black ordered last year. This year the same skirt raison brown is at least two sizes smaller than last years skirt. Twice return having to pay return cost twice. The description should indicate this size problem

I ordered 2 of these skirts for my daughter for work and they are EVERYTHING the catalogue described. They are so comfortable to wear and are wrinkle resistant. They wash up well and look nice when you wear them. I just ordered 2 pairs of the same pants for my son-in-law because of the way the skirts are. Thank you for making such quality items.
