    Too narrow for 50's look, too long

    Got this skirt in grassy green in size 4L. I am 5"6 nad usually Boden
    's 4L falls right below the knee but this skirt was slightly longer which makes it somewhat unflattering. I guess in order to be proper length this skirt needs to be 4R, not L. I originally ordered the skirt because I bought a gingham shirt dress in navy and regretted deeply not getting the one in grassy green as well. The dress was gorgeous and I have gotten many compliments on it. The dress has a 50s flare to it and I expected the same from the skirt but, unfortunatelly, the skirt is not your typical 50s style full circle skirt, it is mor eon the narrower side. Was not happy at all and sending the skirt back.

    I do with they brought back that gingham shirt dress though...

        Simply a great skirt. I'm short, but the style looks good even a little past my knees. Very flattering shape and comfortable. It wrinkled a little by the end of the day (nothing major), but looked good with a little steaming.

          Great design, looks good with recently ironed pleats or loosened up. It's fairly full but sits nicely and flat on hips. I found the 4 was large on me and that's my usual size, two was perfect. I got the beigish color, it's quite unusual in that it's a brown with grey tones. Boden seems good at unique colors, though it can be difficult figuring out what to wear with them. I wear a clingy white 3/4 sleeve tee with this, looks great. I'm 5'4, the skirt is a bit long on me but in a classic fifties kind of way, which i love. This skirt is lined and has the quality of a bygone time in fashion as well.....it's just beautifully made, as is everything I've ordered from Boden. A slight glitch in this shipment but the company rep was on top of it immediately.

              I tried the size 8 in this skirt but it sat down on my hips so I went for the size 6 since for me it was more comfortable to have the skirt up at my waist. Love the Navy color way, it feels very perky!

                            I am always looking for comfortable work wear that has an effortless put-together look and this skirt is a great foundational piece. As someone who sews, the one con is that the plaid does not match at the side seams. I wondered if this error would bother me in the long run but my daughter said the skirt is a keeper and she did not notice the problem. The cut is flattering and the bold plaid is unique.
