Rated 5 out of 5 by RockyMountSeagull One of best choices I ever made!
I now have 2 of these skirts, and another on the way. I really love them!
I am a little older  so the larger waist size suits me fine. I wear them with turtlenecks, blouses, cardigans, and/or vests, boots, shoes, whatever, and they are great because they can be worn with so many different pairings so as to be casual, professional, sporty, or dressy.
As to shrinkage: I wash them (washing machine) in COOL water, and I am careful not to over-dry them and use a lower heat. NOT A BIT OF SHRINKAGE!
I expect them to last a long time, and I am so happy I got them.
Oh yes: when you order, check out the colors, because the pictures look as though they are solid colors, but they may be herringbone, or hounds-tooth. Ask the person you talk to when you order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Livinglifeoutdoors Comfortable Skirt
I bought this skirt in the brown pattern and in a solid gray. Love them. I wear a size 10 and bought a size 10 perfect fit, they are a little fuller around the hips which I like. They look great when paired with a pair of boots and turtleneck. They wash and dry wonderfully. I'm 5'2" and the regular size falls a little longer than mid-calf so if you want your skirts shorter you may want the petite size but I think this length myself for winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BluJay Please make summer version!
Bought this skirt in three of its colors last Fall & wrote a positive review. Love the length and the fact that it fits waist, not a dropped waist which is very uncomfortable for me (and in my opinion not flattering on any figure.) LL Bean, PUH-LEEZE make some in a spring-fall fabric!

Rated 5 out of 5 by robin1250 Very Nice!
I ordered two skirts (gray and plum) in my usual size 14 and they fit perfectly. The fabric is beautiful - it really does look like soft wool. I washed the skirts in cool water on a regular cycle, dried them on a rack and ironed them and they turned out great. I agree with other reviewers who said the pockets aren't very deep. Also, I'm 5' 9" and wish the skirts were a smidge longer; they're long enough to wear with tall boots but I like my skirts a little longer. I recommend the Weekend Riding Skirt and will definitely consider ordering a couple more in different fabrics when they're available.

Rated 3 out of 5 by P024008 Shell shrinks but nice skirt
I have 3 of these skirts. They are very flattering and the fabric is very comfortable and warm. The waist is huge but it just sits lower on my hips than I would normally wear but it still looks fine.
Although I have never put these skirts in the dryer, all 3 shrunk in the wash leaving the lining longer than the shell. Luckily my mom hemmed the liner and they still look good, but be warned. I noticed some other reviewers had the same problem so it's not an isolated incident. Although I love the skirts I give them 3 stars as not everyone has a seamstress in the family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gardening4you Tailored, very well made, classy, and a classic.
I have this skirt in 3 colors. I would like one or two more, simply because this type of skirt is so very hard to find, and it is so well made, tailored, and with a nice lining. It is also very warm and comfortable, and I love the pockets. It is easy to dress up or down.Caution - it does run big. I got one size down and it is perfect for me. I am 5'4, 135 lbs, a normal size 14. A regular comes just 2" above my ankle which is what I like. The raisin is a really nice color. I highly recommend this skirt.

I was pleasantly surprised by the fantastic fit and especially the quality of this skirt. I ordered a woman's size in petite because I'm chubby and short, and I ordered my usual size. It fit perfectly, and I Ioved the skirt so much that I ordered it again in another color. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great Skirt
What a great skirt. Thank you to the reviews I read advising to order one size smaller, it fit perfectly. It is ideal for work, flattering to my figure, loved that it is lined, the perfect length and the fabric feels so soft. That it is washable is even a bigger asset. This is the first time I have ordered online, and will become a regular customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FreddysMom A Classic Style
This skirt fits nicely in all areas and the fabric is soft and well tailored. A good choice for either dressing up or down. After reading many reviews, I took the advice of some reviewers and ordered one size smaller and the fit was perfect with the skirt ending mid-calf. I am just short of 5' and 130 lbs. I usually take a size 12 but size 10 was perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cottagecountry Gorgeous skirt but not quite right
I am almost embarrassed to share my experience, compared with some of the others who indicated that the waist was too large - yikes! I had the opposite problem. I ordered my usual size 12 and it was very tight. I usually order trousers and shorts with the comfort waist option, so maybe that is the route I should go.
LLBean, could you please offer this lovely garment in a comfort waist option? I would buy one in every colour, as I love, love, love long skirts; they re so classy, comfortable and professional looking.
