      Attractive material and nice shape, though I do wish it was just a bit (2"?) shorter. I will consider taking it to the tailor, but regardless, I look forward to wearing it.

        I loved, Loved, LOVED this skirt when it arrived, but I couldn't keep it, because it was just too tight for my curvy (read: LARGE) hips. I knew I was taking a chance with the pencil cut when I purchased it, but it was just SO pretty that I had to give it a try. Sad for me, but absolutely PERFECT for someone with small hips. The fabric is lovely and looks very stylish, and the skirt is the perfect length. Work or evening appropriate - you can easily dress it up or down. Would definitely try again if I manage to take off a few pounds.

          I recently purchased the metallic version of this skirt as a wear-to-work piece. While I absolutely loved the length and fit, I felt that it would have been a little too shiny for my office. Reluctantly, I sent it back and exchanged for another style. I'd love to see this cotton-blend skirt in more basic, neutral colors. The prints are cute, but not very professional. For reference, I'm 5'5"/105# and got the 2R. The length was perfect - just below the knee cap.

          I originally ordered the 8L in this skirt and it was dreadfully tight in the thighs (5'10" 150#). I then ordered a 10R which was a bit roomy all around but I kept it because the fabric and design is so pretty. If anything, I can now tuck in shirts without it feeling tight, and the extra room makes me look curvier. Overall, a bit of a discrepancy in sizing but if you can find a size to fit you, it's a great find!

          This LOOKED like it would be a great skirt, when it arrived in the mail. However, it was way too small. I wear a size 2 everywhere else, so I ordered a size 2. Apparently, according to Boden's size charts, that means I should have ordered a size 6! I didn't learn that until AFTER I ordered! Now I'm waiting for size 6 to arrive in the mail...

            This skirt was gorgeous but it definitely runs small. I usually order up in skirts from Boden so I ordered an 8 instead of my usual 6 (5'10"/145 lbs) and it was still too small around my upper thighs. I returned it for a 10. Hopefully this one fits because the weave on this skirt is beautiful!

            I love Boden's pencil skirts because they are available in lengths just below the knee, which I find are much more flattering and more appropriate in a professional setting. This skirt works well as a day-to-night piece - just change the top or accessories to dress up or down. The fit is great, the fabric looks more expensive than it is, and the color works well as a neutral base without being boring. I've only worn it once so I can't speak to the durability yet butI expect that, like my other Boden purchases, it won't disappoint.

            The fit of the size 4 on my 27 waist and 36 hips was perfect, but the fabric, I must admit, did not win me over in person. It looks more gray and silver in the picture on my computer, but in person it had too much of a golden sheen that looked gaudy to me. Too shiny for work for my taste.

            I bought this in Multi Cow Parsley. Fits really well. (I am 5'3", 100 lbs and bought the 2R). The fabric and texture are great and it is really well made. I wish the slit was a little longer for comfortable walking, but this not a deal breaker. Received compliments all day!
