Rated 4 out of 5 by ClevelandGal Pretty skirt
I ordered this in navy in a 10 petite based on reviews and the size chart. It is really cute and well made but too big on me. I am 5'2" and 129 pounds. I think a size 8 petite would have been great but now they are sold out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tomkat0199 perfect skirt
I have this skirt in several colors in size 8. I have short legs I find the length perfect. I'm a teacher and wear it t of work. It needs a little pressing after washing, but not much. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chicgal Great skirt, great price
Contrary to some of the other reviews, I love this skirt.
I am a 160 lb, 5'7" , sz 12, woman who has a straight shape, no waist definition, so this waistband is perfect. Bought the white that will go with everything. Length is above the knee but not extremely so for a 50+ year old woman. Will wear nude color panties so they
don't show through. Sorry if that is TMI, but thought the other reviewer should know.

Had this in a smaller size, then gained weight. Just bought it in a 12 (I'm 5' 7", 150 lbs), in navy, and it's every bit as cute bigger. I like the length and fitted style. Great deal at the sale price!

I have this little skirt in white and it goes with so many things and packs well. Lined so it's not see-through, it is lightweight and stylish. Runs true to size. Just the right length.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mommycozy True to size but low in quality
I find this skirt true to size even though it looks quite tight on the models. I like the french blue color a lot. It's stunning! However, I don't find this skirt as well-tailored as other Bean products. After the first wash, many lose threads stuck out through the holes in the eyelet fabric. I am disappointed to have to return it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by commonsenseclothing OK if you're into mini-skirts
I had high hopes that this skirt would be nice for church so I ordered two. In fact, I was so hoping that I ordered 2 times. The first 2 skirts (size 10 reg) were quite a bit too small & W-A-A-Y too short. As both my husband and I liked these skirts, I exchanged for size 14 regular...hoping the larger sizing would allow a different fit & be a little longer. No such luck! Although the two size 14's were even a little too big, they still didn't seem to be a bit longer than the size 10's. So these have to go back too. I don't understand the length thing. I am only 5 ft. 1-1/2 ins. & I ordered regulars.....not even petites. I would hate to see how short the petites would be.
There is a very large market of female boomers out there who can't find appropriate clothes for church or much of anything else either. The clothes are either extremely short like these skirts or very revealing at the neckline, or so sheer that they're embarrassing to wear, or they're sleeveless. (ladies ages 60+, 65+, 70+ just can't use those sleeveless dresses or blouses without having to spend more money to buy another piece of clothing to hide unsighly arms.)
LL Bean, help us. How about some good-quality clothing WITH SLEEVES, HIGHER necklines and made of more substantial fabric? Are you listening???
If these skirts had been an appropriate length, I would rated a five.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BorntoTravel2007 White is Too Sheer
Wanted to love this skirt - it is a true pencil, below waist and come a few inches above the knee (I am 5'5") - but the white even with the (thin) lining was just too sheer. I knew I was in trouble when I could see the tag clearly through it as I was opening the bag. When I put it on you could clearly see my panty! Sadly this went back. The lining in the white needed to be much more substantial.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SunbeltGirl Adorable, quality skirt!
I ordered this in the white eyelet for summer. There are just so many different color combinations that go with the white.
The skirt is very quality, lined and a hook and eye above the zipper.
I am almost 5'7" and I actually ordered the petite for the first time.
I didn't want it hitting me right at the knee. I wanted it a couple inches above my knee.
It hits just right and it's cute and cool and stylish. Looking forward to wearing it. One of those go to clothing items you can dress up or dress down.
Thank you L.L.Bean. It's a keeper!
