Rated 4 out of 5 by Jerseybeanie fun summer knit skirt; good for petites
I normally do not order horizontal stripes because I am short but the black stripe is very subtle and looks gray from a distance. I ordered my usual medium which fits well (seems forgiving for those with large midsections). My medium is about 20 inches long and a flattering length for me (may be too short if you are tall). The fabric is light so you need a slip underneath to smooth over spots and for coverage. The hem is cute and flirty. Too bad I waited until September to order. Hope it holds up over time. Would have given it five stars for more substantial fabric and a pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer This is a GREAT skirt
I just got this skirt and I love it! The fit is flattering, the fabric is VERY nice. It is a thinner knit, but has enough stretch and body to hold its shape. I want to wear it every day! It will be great for travel and can be dressed up or down. I am 5' 6" tall and it falls slightly above my knee. Don't hesitate to purchase this skirt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SophieG Great shorts alternative!
I can't say enough good things about this skirt! I find shorts to be uncomfortable and unflattering for my shape, so I'm always looking for skirts that I can wear hiking and for active outdoor activities. This skirt is perfect. The wide, dropped waistband is ultra-comfortable, and it flairs out into a swingy A-line at the hips which is really flattering. I'm 5'6" and the length is just slightly above the top of my knee, which is fashionable but not too revealing. No need for shorts underneath, at least for hiking. The fabric is poly-cotton, and although I'm usually suspicious of anything that isn't all cotton, it's really nice quality -- soft like a T-shirt, but not sheer or clingy, and the poly content will make it good for travel. I'm about a size 8-10 dress (between a small and medium in LL Bean clothes), but I have a thick waist, so I ordered the medium. Fits great, but I definitely could have gone with the small if I had a curvier figure. Overall, I totally love it! More colors, please!

LOVE this skirt. Comfortable. Fits perfectly. Great length. Would love to see it come in Navy and perhaps stone or something. Awesome skirt. (Use it for work at the office or working in the garden.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Run6014 Great for travel and casual outings. Add colors!
I bought this skirt for an upcoming trip. It is much nicer than I expected. If you've purchased any skirts advertised as quick dry for travel, you know that they can be quite frumpy looking--e.g., they flare out, tend to hit below the knee, and have very thick waistbands.
This L.L. Bean skirt is perfect. The waistband is comfortable and can be folded over if a shorter length is desired. Otherwise, the skirt hits right above my knees which is what I wanted. Nice cut and most flattering travel, quick dry skirt I've found.
Great price! I would buy another one if the color selection was better--i.e., a tan which is neutral for travel or some bright colors for both travel and everyday wear.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TrekkieMom Nice Design but the Fabric is VERY Thin
This is a nice design---comfortable with clean lines. I like the grey strip on black--Interesting while still wearable. However, I was expecting a more substantial fabric in a tailored skirt. This is the type of fabric I would expect in a long/flow-y skirt where there is a lot of fabric. Many people may be fine with the very light/thin nature of the fabric for Summer--but I prefer something a bit heavier so I know it is going to stay put and not ride up. The length is quite short and may shrink a lot due to the fabric style. I returned the item because of the thin fabric--so I did not wash/dry this myself. Again--probably depends on what you need.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LDuffy Too short for me but a fine skirt
I think their models must just be on the short side. Wish they would list model height. Every skirt I buy here looks like it is going to be longer on me than it is. Returning this skirt for the rose river midi instead - it looks too long in the picture but was perfect when I got it home. I am 5'8". This fushion skirt looked like it would have been perfect length but was much too short for my comfort when it arrived.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PinkViolin Awesome Versatile Skirt!
I have had this skirt for over a year and it is AWESOME! I am totally loving the fit (I would like it if the elastic in the back of the skirt were a bit tighter, but I also stick out a bit farther in the rear than most people)
I initially got it as a running skirt to help out with my brothers' Cross Country team, and this summer I have used it as a swim skirt, as well as wearing it to amphibious places (like our Six Flags, which has a water park) and it has been amazing, drying quickly and stretching to cover all that I prefer to cover!
The hem has come out a bit in one place, but I wear my clothes hard in general (I'm very active) and it has held up admirably in all of the other seams (which has me quite pleasantly surprised!
I am sooo buying two or three more!
