Rated 3 out of 5 by BorntoTravel2007 White is Too Sheer
Wanted to love this skirt - it is a true pencil, below waist and come a few inches above the knee (I am 5'5") - but the white even with the (thin) lining was just too sheer. I knew I was in trouble when I could see the tag clearly through it as I was opening the bag. When I put it on you could clearly see my panty! Sadly this went back. The lining in the white needed to be much more substantial.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SunbeltGirl Adorable, quality skirt!
I ordered this in the white eyelet for summer. There are just so many different color combinations that go with the white.
The skirt is very quality, lined and a hook and eye above the zipper.
I am almost 5'7" and I actually ordered the petite for the first time.
I didn't want it hitting me right at the knee. I wanted it a couple inches above my knee.
It hits just right and it's cute and cool and stylish. Looking forward to wearing it. One of those go to clothing items you can dress up or dress down.
Thank you L.L.Bean. It's a keeper!

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeanintheNorth Sweet Little Skirt for Spring & Summer
I ordered the French Blue, gorgeous colour!
If you need a review that will give you the nudge you need to click "complete order" - keep reading.
I am 5'7" and this skirt in a 10 is just right. It's short, but becomingly so. The pencil cut keeps it timeless and classy. I ordered a matching camisole and the cotton/cashmere textured cardigan and have received many complements on my outfit. I've also worn it with Bean's scoop neck tank.
If you are looking for a go-to skirt for summer and you feel comfortable in a straight skirt, you won't be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by greengirl46 Great casual to dressy skirt
I ordered this skirt to wear for Easter and love it. A few comments:
I am always between a petite and regular at 5'4" and am glad I ordered the regular. It hits me right above my knees; so, if you are very tall it will be short.
The blue is a lovely cobalt color which I like but it much darker than the picture which appears almost periwinkle.
I'm usually an 8/small in Beans and it fits as expected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by retiredCAteacher really pretty, flattering but short
These skirts are very pretty, the straight style is flattering, and they are well made, but I found I did not have the nerve to wear something this short. I wish the 34 inch straight skirt would come back. If you like short skirts you will love these. They are true to size also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarmenSandiego for my body, this is perfection! straight & modern
For reference, i'm 5'1", 115 lbs with more weight in my chest/upper body than in my hips/butt/thighs. Curvy cuts never suit me and pencil skirts are my secret weapon.
The Camden skirt in 4P fits like a glove. It's comfortable at 100% cotton and not too tight or loose. I love the double layer for a more ladylike look. This is a great hot weather work skirt!
t first ordered it in French Blue, which is a gorgeous deep blue that pairs well with summer whites. Even though Labor Day has passed, I'm ordering a second skirt in white.

Rated 3 out of 5 by llbeanershopaholic Lovely fabric, sized VERY small
I am a size 12 across all brands. I ordered a 14 Regular in this skirt and it was snug with no room to spare. It hugged my bum and hips totally accentuating my 'roundness.' I am 5'6" and it came several inches above my knees. With that said, I will admit it was lovely, soft, feminine fabric; however, they are going back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TDinCanada Beautiful skirt but not built for curves
I loved, loved, loved this skirt online, especially the field poppy colour. I ordered it and used the size chart to guide me and ordered a size larger than I usually would. In person, the fabric and colour are fantastic. Unfortunately, the skirt is too tight through the hips, but it fits fine everywhere else. I'll be returning the skirt and not ordering another size. This skirt is not built for curves, and my curves aren't going anywhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ShoppingQueen250 Cute Summer Skirt
I am enjoying this skirt, which can be dressed up or down. I usually wear size 2P, and my usual size in this skirt fits just right. It is very lightweight and cool, great for hot weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BonnieNina Too cute!
I got this little skirt and a camisole of the same blue to go with it under an airy top. (The simply styled skirt works well with other tops, too.) The size, petite 4, is true although it seemed big at first. It shrank just a tad with the first washing and now it's perfect. It will be cool for going out in the summer. I love it and get lots of compliments.
