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.

This skirt is absolutely beautiful -- nice fabric, perfect length, sophisticated blue print. I'm 5'5", 145 lbs, and the 10P fit perfectly in the waist and hips (which can be an issue). The skirt came to my low calf.
The only problem is that the fabric is quite thin. You will certainly see through it with sunlight behind you. I plan to add a sheer underlayer to it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DavidsonRussian Long, lightweight skirt for Summer wear
Bought this lovely blue skirt on sale, can't wait to wear it this Spring and Summer. I'm 5'2" and 125 lbs; purchased the 4P and it fits perfectly. The fabric is interesting - it's 100% linen but it has a textured feel to it. Almost like a brocade but of course it's lightweight like a linen should be. It came out of the package a little stiff so I am going to wash before I wear it to see if that will soften it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanClearanceShopper Soft and Durable
I just received my skirt and was very pleased at the quality of the fabric. I am 5'9", 140 lbs., and purchased the coral in a size 10. It fits very well and I love the flare. The length falls right about mid calf. The fabric is soft, smooth, durable; not a thin fabric by any means.

I have the blue print in a size 16 and it's very flattering. I definitely would have bought another one in a different color if it were still available. This would also be nice in the "linen" color offered in the premium linen pants.

Rated 2 out of 5 by llbj Nice finishing, poor style
Long skirts are great substitutes for pants in the summer. I bought the solid blue linen. The fit was good, size 4, for me 5'6" 120lb. The finishing was nice, bias cut, faggoting at the hem, hence the 2 stars. The styling is awful, too flat or something. I tried it with every top, but nothing could save it. My favorite llbean styles are from the Signature group.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 22big sizing does not work for me
I am disappointed. I measured my waist in determining what size to order, but what I received was so big, I returned it for a skirt two sizes smaller. The second skirt is too big in the waist and sits on my hips. The zipper in the second skirt works smoothly. The zipper in the skirt I first received caught on the material. I like the color and the material is probably durable. It has as much style as a dish towel has. I hate shopping so I might keep it,

I love this skirt. I own the blue print and the coral. It has a graceful flow and is very flattering. I would like to see it offered in tan, black, white, etc. I'd buy them all! Please design a similar skirt in a winter fabric.

Rated 3 out of 5 by taffyw Great if you like orange
This skirt is orange and not the coral that it is named and shown. I may adapt and keep it. Still thinking about that.
