Rated 1 out of 5 by ncbarbwire Close, but no dice.
I really, really want to like this skirt: its silhouette is classic, it's made of durable twill, it comes in stalwart colors, and it should be timeless.
However, the elastic panels make the waistline needlessly bulky, make the pockets pooch outwards, and actually impede the comfortable fit of every belt I've tried to wear with it.
I'm not entirely crazy about the shorter cut, but I could deal with that if only the skirt's waistline could come to terms with mine. Ironic that on me, the "Comfort Fit" is anything but!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Devora These run very small
I normally wear a size 6, but had to return these for a size 8 which fits perfectly. I love these skirts, they are classic and wash well, but this year's batch of 6's are really 4's.

Rated 5 out of 5 Perfect Skirt
This is the perfect casual skirt. I am 5' tall and weigh 135 pounds and I ordered the 10 in regular and it fits great. I went with regular because I like my skirt to come just past the knee. The quality is really good and the band is so comfortable. I bought three and I am going to order two more today. This skirt will not disappoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JennyBr Really nice skirt
I've been buying a lot of clothes lately, due to both a loss of weight and a new job that requires less casual clothes than I usually wore as a stay at home mom. This skirt is one of my favorite new pieces. Just a nice straight, basic cut that is very flattering, and fit in my usual size. I am 5'4", and I bought the petite, with it hitting just above my knee. Looks good with both tee shirts and with nicer shirts and cardigans. I'm going to but a couple more colors as these will go nicely right through fall, depending on what they're paired with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cbbamb Classic and timeless
I love this skirt! I am a teacher and it is perfect for casual dress. I say casual, but depending on the shirt and shoes you can really dress it up! I am 5"6 150 pounds and the size 6 fits nicely. I would like to see a dark grey and a dark cement color so I can buy more!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SusanfromAZ Great skirt
This skirt is comfortable, well made and washes well. The length is perfect not 'frumpy' or mini.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Teaqueen perfect
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ToniGA Almost Perfect
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.
