    This is a great skirt! I see myself wearing it everywhere!! I ordered a 6P. I am 5ft2in, 118lbs (53.5kg). It hits me right at the knee. It is slightly too big in the waist, but I usually have this problems with bottoms. The print is perfect. The colors are bright enough to be fun but subtle enough to still be professional.

    Discovering Boden's pencil skirts might be a bit of a problem. LOVE them. I am 5'11" and ordering size long is a great fit - sure it could be longer but beggars can't be choosers! These are the only long pencil skirts I have found that come in a variety of patterns. My only complaint - the fit around the front is slightly unflattering in that it poofs out. Might just be the fit on me.

        I bought this skirt in the red and blue floral. It is gorgeous, very well-made, but too tight! I am normally a size 0 or 2 but I bought a 4R and it is way too tight through the waist and hips. Maybe it's me, I don't seem to be able to fit in Boden bottoms very well. Sadly it's going back - I know a 6 would be too long and pouchy in the stomach area.

          This skirt is fun, colorful and comfortable! I initially got this in what usually is my size and it was a little too tight. So I just exchanged it for a size larger and voila! Fits really well, and maybe even a little loose, which is just fine with me. Saturated colors, you can dress it up or down with a myriad of color choices. LOVE this skirt!

          I love pencil skirts and normally wear a 4 or 6 but had to go up to size 8 in your pencil skirt. However, this print goes perfectly with a jacket I own and makes a great outfit for work!

                I ordered this skirt in usual size 6 and had to return for a size 8. The 8 is a bit big in the hips but I will keep it and either have it tailored or just live with it. I have many other Boden skirts in size 6 that fit fine so I don't know if the sizing has changed this season or I have gained a few lbs in the middle. (UGH!)
                Love the print and the details and the fabric is substantial. (Not thin or clingy). Great for work!

                    I first purchased this in a 4p and it was way too small. I was quite surprised. I returned it and asked for a 6p and it was too big. The sizing for this skirt is a bit off. I am skirtless. The fabric was beautiful and I wish I could have found a size for me in this style. :(
