Wow Pencil

WG520

Wiggle through the week with one chic stripe, two modern spots and three luxurious tweeds to choose from. The metallic tweed is already a Boden House favourite.

    I ordered the black stripe on cream. The fabric is quite hefty with some stretch. The fabric literally shaped my curves like a girdle, but the effect was still too snug on me, even though 8R is my normal Boden size. If you're looking for the "vavoom" effect, this skirt can do it for you. I felt it was just too tight for comfort and that the next size up might be too large, but otherwise was impressed by the material and flattering effect it can have.

      Fits well; just order one size up. At 5'4" and 117 lbs., I was surprised that a size 4 was snug around the hips. Size 6 fits just right.

      Very cute and versatile skirt. Can dress up or down. I am between an 8 and a 10 and based on reviews ordered 10, which fits perfectly. A bit snugger than other 10 skirts I have had from Boden. Great material and fit. A keeper!

      I have other pencil skirts from Boden in Size 4L. I bought this pencil skirt in the same size and I can't get it up over my thighs. I actually bought another pencil skirt in the same order in the same size which fits perfectly. This skirt runs incredibly small and I would recommend buying at least 1 size up, if not two.

        The pattern on the pink circle skirt is great and the material is of great quality. I can't stop rubbing the dots on the skirt. Matching this with the pictured top really garnered a lot of compliments. Fit was as expected

            This is darker than I thought it would be - meaning the white in the pattern is less prominent - which turns out to make it look more classic and professional than I was anticipating! Love it.

            this is truly a WOW skirt. I bought the striped one after seeing it in US InStyle magazine. It is beautiful. I had it on all day and not a signle wrinkle. The only thing i wish it had was lycra. I also ordered the white one and cannot wait for it to arrive in the mail.
            Ms. Jola from customer service was very nice!
