Rated 5 out of 5 by FromNewEngland Best Skirt Ever
Amazing skirt, definitely my new favorite. Perfect for a curvy figure - the stretch waist eliminates the waist gap that I often get in a skirt that fits in the hips. Please make in some other winter fabrics, such as washable wool.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MARLEYD0G Disappointing
I have always had at least one short khaki or stone skirt in my summer wardrobe, and the last one was definitely worn out after several years. This skirt does not look as smooth as it does in the main photo. There are several vertical seams and I found they really need to be well ironed to look close to tidy.
I'm 124lbs and 5'8" and the size 6 fitted well at the waist and fell to just above the knee. However, the fit is really not a fit - more like a sack and not at all shapely. Not sure what the spandex is doing. The elastic waist was excellent and very comfortable. I'm wearing this today, but only at my casual office. Not something I would wear if I wanted to look smart.

Finally. A casual skirt with the look of a pencil skirt. Trim without being binding and not too long and dowdy-looking.
I got the whalebone which does have a slight khaki tinge to it. I like the color. It will take me into fall and beyond. I am 5"8" and 155 lbs. and the size 12 fits comfortably.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bulldogg Stretch waist denim skirt
Loved everything about this skirt but the too tight waist. The quality is excellent, the fit everywhere but the waist was perfect but the waist band, even though it's elestic, was uncomfortable. There isn't enough give in the elastic.
Returned it for a larger size but am worried that it will be too big in the hips. It's worth trying anyway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by writercook Best Feature: Let Down-able
I bought this skirt in both "Flint" (very pale grey) and "Dark Plum," and I love the fit. The style is simple -- pockets!!!! -- but as with many Bean skirts, it's an inch or two shorter than I am willing to wear. The good news is that the raw edge at the bottom is turned up an inch+ twice. I was able to rip out the machine-stitched hem, finish the raw edge, and re-hem with only one fold. I'm wearing the flint skirt as I type. After careful pressing and going through the washer/dryer once after my alteration, I can see a faint "pressing line" with tiny "dots" from the stitching at the original hem site. Frankly, it looks like a purposeful design feature, so I'm calling it a success. :) I expect with continued washings/dryings it will disappear. So, good job LL Bean with having a generous hem allowance, but even better I'd appreciate you paying attention to the many customers who don't wish to show their kneed when they sit down. Customers, give the review a "like" if you agree.

I bought this skirt in both khaki and moss in a size 6. Both colors are great and I like the cut. But, I returned them for a size 8 which fits perfectly. Order a size up and you will be happy.

This has the best waist band ever. It fits perfectly, waists are usually too big for me so I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mtnwoman Disappointed with color change
Did you order Easy Stretch in the past and loved the stone color? Whalebone is not the same color. Whalebone is much more yellow. Just thought it would be helpful if you knew of yet another of LLBean's many unwelcome changes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fionaloves2eat Love it! Stylish and versatile!
Comfy, stylish and versatile! Looks great with a fitted top and jazzy necklace or scarf. Nice alternative to shorts. I am 5'6 and got a petite- the length is perfect. The stretchy waistband is wonderful for my "curvy" body- no gapping.
