      This is my second Boden skirt purchase. I wasn't happy with my first skirt--it didn't really look like the picture, but this skirt is great. The fabric is nice and there is a good stretch. I just wish it was lined. You need a slip under it. Fits true to size and easy to dress up or down.

          I've been looking for a pencil skirt in grey and am glad I gave the Breadwinner Skirt a try.
          I have very curvy hips and struggle to find pencil skirts that skim my body nicely. The give in this skirt accommodates my curves and the skirt looks and fits great in my regular size 8.
          I wish this were a tad longer, and maybe a bit thicker, but that's a personal preference.
          Overall, for the price, this is a worthwhile purchase!

                I love pencil skirts. However, being a housewife/SAHM, the structured lined variety just isn't practical to my life. I saw this and thought a knit skirt may work for me.
                I'm 5'4", 120lbs, 26" waist and 36" hips. I'm a pretty firm 4 at Boden and I ordered this in a 4R.
                So, yeah. Wow! Really. This skirt is so comfortable, so flattering, easy to wear, and sexy in a classy way. It still looks structured but without the restricted movement.
                The fabric is thick, but VPL is indeed present. I'll have to be mindful of what undergarments I wear, and tucking thicker shirts in may pose a problem. I tucked a t-shirt in and didn't see any lumps.
                I'm sold on this perfect offspring of office wear and gym attire. I've tossed every color into my basket.

                Love the shape and comfortable feel of this skirt! It will be great for work, and even after a day of sitting at my desk, wrinkles were minimal;-)! I wish the fabric was just a bit heavier, however. I think it would add a bit of a smoother look overall.

                  I would order a size down with this skirt. I love boden as things tend to run large (what women doesn't like ordering a smaller size)but this skirt due to the stretch is too large. This is the first pencil skirt I have found that is actually long enought (I am 5'10") most work appropriate skirts are too short for me or if they are long enough they are not confortable. This skirt is comfortable and retains it shape. Just order a size down that what you normally are.

                    I love this skirt! I have it in two colors and have found it to be very comfortable, fashionable and true to size. I especially love the stretch in the fabric as the snug fit moves with you!
