Rated 5 out of 5 by Editaur Great in so many ways
This is becoming my go-to skirt. It's a fairly basic piece, but it has such great features - it's well-made, stands up to a long day's wearing without getting baggy, and that waistband! I've got a bit of a stomach on a skinny body, and it's great to have a skirt that fits me through the legs but doesn't dig into my waist. I wish it came in black, but I'll definitely take the colors available for now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Florida09 Great Classic Skirt
I'm what you might call a "mature" lady, I like to look smart and stylish and this skirt does that for me. I bought two of these skirts, one in Heritage Stone and one in Khaki. I purchased 14 Reg and the fit is perfect on me. The waist is very forgiving and is not bulky and the length is 21 1/2" from the bottom of the waist band, comes to just below the knee which is how I like my skirts to fit. They are not pencil cut, but are cut straight - very slimming. I usually purchase my clothing from high end online stores, but I am more than pleased with this purchase and would not hesitate to buy from L.L.Bean again. I would describe this skirt as a smart classic chino skirt.

This is a very nice skirt, washed well. The length was good, right at the knee, so modest without being frumpy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Holy Grail Casual Skirt
I ordered this skirt cautiously, skeptically....I am typically more of an "haute couture" kind of dresser and semi-assumed I'd return it for excessive preppiness or comfort. Imagine my surprise when it turned out to be the MOST WORN skirt in my wardrobe! I am addicted to mine (in Navy), wearing it in almost every life context: shopping in Manhattan to hiking in the Swiss Alps. Sandals, boots, pumps, whatever footwear you want looks more or less appropriate with this skirt that takes neutrality to almost sublime level. It is ridiculously comfortable, probably my only skirt that I don't rip off the second I get in the door; sometimes I don't even notice that I'm sipping my end-of-day Chardonnay still in it! Love. If LL Bean ever discontinues it, I will stockpile a lifetime supply.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TropicalTeacher Even better than expected
The only reason I say this is better than expected is related to the weight of the fabric for what I needed. I teach in SE Asia and it is hot! Linen is my best friend here so I was somewhat apprehensive about ordering twill but I wanted a khaki color and liked the idea of the comfort waist and also the fact it had pockets (office keys). I love this skirt! It is comfortable, and I wore it all day at work today and it did not look like I had been sitting in a puddle! It is NOT bulky at the waist, really nice shape. As for fit, I recently lost 30 lb and have the waist that recalls having kids. I ordered a 12 and it is perfect. I am 5'6" and at the moment about 154 lb. The heavier weight that still works good in this climate would also be great for any other season back home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Learner Flattering/comfortable
I love it! I ordered the size 18 in tan and black. I am 5' 7" and weigh 184-ish with a tummy pooch. My measurements fell exactly within the size 18. This skirt is flattering in spite of my pooch!...not boxy, not frumpy. Understated and contemporary. It falls just at the knee and doesn't creep up when I sit down. No pocket problems. With the size 18, I don't need the stretch of the comfort waist, so perhaps that's why the pockets lie flat.

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 by Verified Reviewer 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.
