Rated 5 out of 5 by EclecticCanadian Perfect for me -- SO versatile!
I am 5'-2" and about 130lbs; I purchased the petite medium in black, and it fits like a dream. My small waist, compared to my full hips, makes it difficult for me to find skirts that fit well, and this fits the bill. The side seams are slightly shaped over the hips and thighs, which is perfect for my curvy body; I have a "menopausal stomach" area and this skirt makes it completely un-noticable.
The fabric is very comfortable, and the black fabric is not flimsy to me. It's exactly how I want a knit fabric skirt to be weight-wise and stretch-wise. The length is just above my knees, in a very flattering spot. I can wear my boots with it, and I've tried it on with sandals in hopes of summer coming soon, and it looks great with either. I've worn it with knit tops and tshirts, as well as with dressier, but still casual loose blouses.
I especially like the little hidden pocket at the waistband. It is completely invisible except for the discreet zipper pull.

Rated 1 out of 5 by texashayseed thin and flimsy
Not for me. The skirt was okay for one wear but after washing just looked like a wrinkled worn gym outfit. I won't wear it again even after ironing. Bought it on a sale so not worth sending back but bad purchase for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Phrelanzer My Go-Everywhere Skirt
This little black skirt takes me everywhere from business meetings to dinners out to church on Sunday morning. It pairs well with tights and boots in the winter, and looks good with flats in the summer. I now own two of them in black! (The blue isn't my taste). There is a zipper pouch inside the skirt but I never use it. It washes well, and I roll it up to pack it for travel -- it weighs almost nothing, takes up very little space, and shakes out with hardly any creasing. I would love to see L.L. Bean offer this versatile skirt in more color choices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LovetohikeAcadia This skirt is absolutely perfect!
I purchased this skirt at the Flagship store in Freeport in June, and it has been the most versatile skirt I have found in a long time! I am 5'9", and wear a size 12- my waist is tapered and I have a difficult time finding skirts. Usually skirts that fit my hips are huge in the waist. This skirt fits perfectly, thank goodness! I was so excited to find this awesome skirt, so I purchased two! I want to order the blue now, as I know it will be a wise purchase. I have worn my new skirts constantly, and they are so comfortable! They can be worn casually, or dressed up with the right blouse. I am a teacher, so this skirt is perfect to wear to school, and it looks very nice! Thanks for creating a perfect skirt, LL Bean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Texasllbean Wonderful!
It's lightweight...feels great...
was a little in between sizes...Large way too big and way too long...
so opted for the medium which is a little snug but, oh well!
Haven't laundered it yet but I can feel it will be my " live in all summer long" skirt!
Might need two!

Rated 5 out of 5 by pinkopaque love this skirt
I love this skirt, so much that I just ordered another one. In fact, I wore it all last week while on vacation. I'm short and heavy with an hourglass shape, so I ordered the XL petite which fit me well, no hemming required. I do think the price is a little high for what it is, but I've been having trouble finding basic black knit skirts lately, and they're a wardrobe essential for me. The picture of this skirt on the website makes it look a little dowdy, but it doesn't look dowdy on me in real life.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 12shopper great skirt now a cheaper version
Purchased this skirt and matching pieces at an earlier date.
The previous quality was wonderful so was
excited to repurchase. Was very disappointed to find the new version had thinner material, proportions changed and cheaper construction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandy50 Great look, great fit
I have been struggling to find a black skirt that can cross over from work to car pooling and playing with kids. This is it! The skirt looks great, fits well. I would recommend this to any busy woman.
