Rated 4 out of 5 by valleygal Well made but going back
This skirt is well made and I liked the hidden elastic inserts. I'm a petite 5 ft and 103 lbs. I ordered a 4P and it came to right below my knee and was a bit too large in the hips. I really wanted the skirt to work but it is just too long and large.

This skirt is comfortable, well made and washes well. The length is perfect not 'frumpy' or mini.

The perfect skirt for running around town, especially when paired with a T-shirt or Bean's French sailor shirt. I wear it with a blouse for spring/summer Sunday worship. Wash and wear ... a light press is what it gets for church; I wear it just as it comes out of the dryer when doing errands. I just had a total knee replacement and this is much easier to get in and out of than jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nama4 Shape matters...
I ordered this skirt in a regular 6, and it arrived yesterday. I love the quality. The size 6 is too small so I have returned it and ordered an 8. I find it helpful for people to put something about body size when giving a review. I am 5'3" and weigh between 122 and 125. My shape is more of a straight up and down shape, and I sometimes joke that my hips and waist are the same size. This size 6 was perfect from the waist down, no pocket gapping at all. The length hit me at mid-knee. I do not like clothes that are snug in the waist, and the size 6 was snug, despite the elastic. Hope this helps someone. I love the skirt and am excited to be getting the size 8 soon. If my shape describes yours and you like a snug waist, then you may want the size 6.

Love this skirt. I'm 5'1" and the hem falls just below my knee, which is exactly where I like it. The only thing that could make this skirt even better is if the belt loops are removed and no pockets added. LLBean, if you're reading this, please consider making a version of this skirt without the pockets and belt loops.

So, it is perfect for work in an office environment, b/c it is a little on the longer side. I am a 28" waist, size 4, so I wasn't sure if their 26 1/2" waist size 4 was going to be right for me, so I called and spoke to a rep. It turns out the LL Bean size 4 does fit me. I would call and speak to a customer service rep first before placing an order so you are happy with your purchase.

This skirt is the best casual skirt I have owned. It wears so well. I have recommended this skirt to a friend. I would buy this in more colors. I have four colors now.

Ordered a size 14 although I'm a size 12 because I don't like tight clothing... the fit was perfect, length is right at the knee. A well constructed garment; slimming and flattering. Have gotten many compliments and it is appropriate for work or casual wear. Glad I chose it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Iluvmycat This skirt not for me
I wore the original Bayside skirt about ten years ago. It came in two lengths and no pocket poaching due to the new style with a "comfort waist". I have tried going up a size and no luck I am 63, 5'5" and 150 pds. I've come to the conclusion that you have to have a young slender figure to wear this skirt. It looks great on the hanger - no pocket pouching. But if you need the "comfort waist" you will have problems with the pockets sticking out. Even if that was eliminated the skirt is too short It was my go to skirt and had it in many colors. I really miss the original "no comfort" skirts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DelmarGirl Great quality, nice fit
The quality and fit of this skirt is very good. The "hidden" elastic in the waistband really is hidden and adds to the comfort.
I haven't experienced any problems with the pockets poofing out as others have mentioned and it washes and dries like a dream.
