Rated 5 out of 5 by delraybeach Blue Linen Skirt
Very nice sturdy linen and great color. The 10 petite fit me well and I'm 130# at 5'4". The petite size is 34" long, so if you don't care for ankle length skirts, you might consider this. I will probably opt to hem mine but, by doing so, I will lose the beautiful pierced needle work at the bottom edge of the skirt.

Cute, comfortable, cool. My new favorite skirt.
It runs a little small so order up if you don't want a muffin top.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Schnickelfritz disappointing
I was prepared to enjoy this skirt, but will return it. The waist closure is a hidden zipper, which is fine, but with a tiny metal hook and eye. It's difficult to see and more difficult to fasten.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaxandMary Perfect skirt
This is a review for the linen skirt in clear blue.
I love this skirt! The design is beautiful and classic, the colour is pretty (not too bright), the length is perfect, and it's very comfortable. It's simple enough to be an everyday skirt that you wear with a basic T-shirt or you can wear it with a dressier top on special occasions. The fabric is light but substantial, and not see-through. It's perfect for very hot and humid days.
I'm 5'4'', waist 29, hips 40 and the 8 regular fits perfectly.
I hope LL Bean brings this skirt back next summer. Colours like olive green, eggplant, warm red, black, chocolate maybe... not necessarily light or pastel shades.
I waited for this skirt to be on special as it was a bit expensive (with the duties added), but I would purchase again at full price without hesitation now that I know it's such a gorgeous well-made skirt.

I am 5 feet, 5 1/2 inches. 148 lbs, size 12 fits like dream, falls right above the ankle. Absolutely LUV it! All purpose, can wear with any top! Yes, needs a slip- no problem!
Thank you LL Bean~

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dwayne Beautiful material
This skirt is larger than other LLBean sizes. I normally wear a size 6, had to return this for a size 4, which is still plenty big. (5'8", 135#). The skirt is beautiful, nice material.

Too bad. The skirts is lovely. I ordered the plain blue; I like the length, the quality of the linen, the open work detail at the hem. But, good grief! The smallest size--4--has an waist that must be 28 inches.
Why is it that smaller women are neglected by LL Bean? Why not offer classic clothing in extended (but DOWNWARD) sizes?

Rated 5 out of 5 by dmassietx Love this skirt! True to size
After reading the reviews, I was concerned that I should order a size up from my normal 12 Regular; however, the 14 was out of stock, so I took a chance. Perfect fit.(I will wash it in cold water, though, as linen does shrink.)
I'm 5'4", 160 lbs (don't judge -- I'm athletic!). The dress hits me a couple of inches above the ankle.
Quality is excellent, and the detailing is very nice. There's a pattern at the hem that was an unexpected and pleasant surprise. Wish it came in more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 99cents gorgeous--what a relief!
I generally love A-line skirts, and have been looking for a simple, versatile midi/maxi length for 3 seasons. This one seemed perfect in the photos and descriptions, but there was some disagreement in the comments. I took a chance and bought it in size 4 (the smallest available--possibly because it was on sale?)
I am 5'5", 112lbs. with a 26-27" waist & short torso (high waist). I usually wear size 2 in skirts & pants, but according to the size charts, LLB 4 should fit me.
It arrived today. Lovely shade of blue; not too bright--a little softer-looking than on my screen. Gentle variation which gives it slightly heathered-appearance. The fabric is a good weight. It might need a slip to be perfectly opaque, but heavier fabric would change the shape & the way it moves, especially at this length.
The style is simple & classy--exactly as it looks in the photos.
It sits just above my hip bones, below my natural waist. Exactly where I like to wear things since my waist is high, but perhaps not as it was intended. This makes it fall just above the tops of my feet--longer than ankle-length.
In summary: Gorgeous skirt! Seems to be cut along lines of normal sizing, so probably good to go with what you normally wear. If you choose your size according to the sizing charts, your skirt may be a hair large.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Cora55 Nice skirt but sizing is off
This is a nice skirt. I ordered the blue color in two sizes because the reviews were confusing and I wasn't sure what size would fit me. LLBean has been inconsistent with sizes lately. The size 14 and the size 16 skirt are the EXACT same size. Unfortunately, I didn't like the fit. The color is very pretty. The length is good. As other reviewers said, the material is a little rough. I think it's time LLBean does something about their sizing. This is the third item of clothing I have had to return because there is no difference between sizes. I used to be able to shop with confidence at LLBean but that is sadly no longer true.
