Love the style, but does not wash well

    This is my second Porchester skirt and while I adore the style and the print, I have found that the skirts was terribly. I'm crushed. After washing one in a lingere bag, on cold delicate, and hang drying it came out a little pilly and no longer looks so great. Plus the waist band fold shifts and has to be constantly corrected, otherwise the inside of the waist band starts to show. I'm still deciding if I'm keeping this second skirt.

    I like the color that the skirt has and it looked great on the model. But when I received it and put it on me, I was disappoint. It is not flattering at all. It is just any skirt on the street but not the one having some eye-catching design. I returned it.

      I ordered the navy with flowers print. There are lots of different colors in this print, so picking a shirt is super easy because it can go with a lot. I am 5'7" and ordered a size "regular" - this was just a little shorter than I would like. I would not be comfortable wearing without leggings or opaque tights, but my job is active and around kids...maybe okay length for some. If I order another, I would try a long.

        I adore this skirt- and have already worn it several times- which I believe to be the mark of a good purchase- if you wear it more than once right away- it's well worth the money!

        Thanks Boden for such a versatile skirt- can't wait to wear it through several seasons!

          I am so glad I bought this skirt, which was on sale. In the photo is appears unflattering but it is actually a very flattering design as well as comfortable. No doubt I will get a lot of wear out of this skirt.

            This is the second Porchester skirt I've ordered - I wore the first one all winter with tights and boots, and decided I better get another since it will be great all year round and at this rate I might wear my first one out (not that it isn't well made)!

            It's extremely comfortable and flattering and the prints are great. (Actually, I should note it is about a million times more flattering than in the picture with the model, which makes it seem poufy at the tummy. It is not.)

            The wide waistband is perfect, the pleating is cute, and the skirt strikes the right balance between flimsy and bulky - there are two layers, so I don't worry at all about anything unflattering showing through, but each layer is thin enough that I still feel streamlined and light.

            I'm 5'9" but and found the regular length to be just right - a few inches above my knee but not scandalous. I suspect the long would have been too long, as has been my experience with some other Boden skirts.

              Versatile! Great length. Love that it can be dressed up with a blouse or down with a tee. Wearing with tights & boots in the winter and will transition into spring paired with some flats.

                  I've gotten so many compliments on this skirt! It's very slimming and figure flattering. It sits high on the waist, but not too high. Cute with a shirt tucked in. The length is great for work.
