Rated 3 out of 5áby CountryGalLovesLLBean Too Short, Too Square
This skirt in size 12 for my 5"4" frame sits at the top of my knee and is not flattering where it hits my legs. Also, this style skirt is too square and not comfortable for me to wear. I have given up on Bean's skirts until they come up with more wearable styles. Too bad because the quality of the garment is good.

Rated 5 out of 5áby NAES Great Fit
This skirt is great for winter. It is a littler fuller than I expected, but the waist is very comfortable with the easy stretch material. True to size.

Rated 3 out of 5áby KCZ41 Not for tall women
It's a nice skirt but way too short for anyone over the age of 30. I'm 5'10" and this barely reaches mid-thigh. Sorry LLBean, but you'll be getting a return.

Rated 1 out of 5áby 1sanclementegal Why this material??
Why can't LLBean bring back the fabric used in the original Bayside skirts? The fabric is too heavy in warm weather and the stretch makes the skirt look cheap. Been a local customer for years, but I just cannot stand this skirt's fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Nereid Skirt Perfection
I'm 5'9 and about 155lb. This skirt couldn't be any better: it?s just got not possible! Perfect length (not too short, but not too long), wonderful lines, and POCKETS! I bought one, and love it; I've already ordered two more in different colors.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Nereid Best Skirt Ever
Perfect length. Nice A-line. Sweet fit on my hip-to-waist ratio. Altogether perfect. I own two, an will be ordering a third. Plus: POCKETS

Rated 5 out of 5áby belletrist My Go-To Skirt
This skirt is the perfect denim skirt! It's comfortable, stylish, and the perfect length. I'm 5'5" and wear a size 6. The skirt fits just right and has maintained its dark wash color through numerous washings. It's a medium weight that works for all four seasons in the midwest.
I came here to buy another for the future (after I wear this one out, just in case) and to search for other colors. It's neither too short nor too long and dowdy. I'm in my 50s and wear classic styles. This skirt does it all.

Rated 4 out of 5áby momosmom Great except the "comfort" waist
Great fabric and colors, but the comfort waist is tight (on me) and thick. I took it out, and now the skirt fits well. The material is stretchy, so there's no need for a huge, thick, and binding elastic waistband. I get it: if your waist is larger, the elastic will stretch out, but it holds like a vice grip and my stomach gets squeezed. If it's too big on someone's waist, they could wear a belt (loops are provided).
I think for those of us who did not grow up wearing a girdle, and have had multiple childbirths, our waist-to-hip ratio is not what it was in the women of the '50s. Favorite fit would be more comfortable; some have mentioned the fit of the 1912 skirt, and I agree that cut is better, more fashionable too. LL Bean, we are probably your main client base now?

Rated 2 out of 5áby NSBeangirl Didn't work for me
I wanted to like this skirt, but it didn't work for me. The length was a bit too short (exactly 22" on size 18) for my height, so I tried to wear it lower on my hip but and the stretchy waist gave me a muffin top and felt uncomfortable! Also, the bottom flaring out slightly, coupled with the too-short length, really made this skirt look funny on me. I'm returning and exchanging for the Bayside Stretch Cord skirt which seems to be a better fit for me.
How about "tall" in skirts and dresses LL Bean??? Please?
Customer service excellent as always when I phoned for the return.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Whitecat50 cute but strange fit
Normally wear an 8 or 10 skirt (I am 5'9). This skirt was uncomfortable in spite of the stretch. Too bad, because it is a good length and looks nice. I returned it.
