    The skirt is absolutely perfect! I got one in navy since it would be the most versatile. Based on the garment measurements I would need a size 4R but the only one left in size 4 was L. I thought I'd have to take it to a tailor but to my surprise the length was perfect for my 5"6 frame - hit just below the knee. I prefer my skirts to hit either right below the knee or mid-knee. Do not like th right above the knee length which is exactly what 4R would have been.

    The skirt is very well made and looks very durable. Excellent fabric. Another great find from Boden

      I am a very busy consultant looking for more non-traditional, yet classy work wear. I wore this skirt to work and found it stylish and comfy. It blended well with my work environment. It kept it shape nicely throughout the day.

      Beautiful material, pattern off

      The cut and material are beautiful on this material. And as with other Boden pencil skirts, it runs small, so I sized up to an 8L (I'm usually a 6L), and it's a little loose but better than too tight. It hits right below my knee and I'm 5'8".

      But I bought the geo print and there is a seam right down the center of the skirt that cuts the pattern in an odd way, making it look cheap. It's a shame because it's beautiful, soft wool. This one's going back, but I think it would be perfect in a solid color.

      The length is fantastic for anyone with long legs and the lines of the skirt are super slimming. It exceeded my expectations.

          I wanted this to work. The hips fit, but the waist is way too big on me, so sizing down will not work. I got the navy and the color and feel of the fabric is very nice. I like the design and length of the skirt. I already have a similar skirt in navy in linen fabric from last year, so I don't feel compelled to get this one taken in at the waist. For reference I normally wear a US8 in Boden skirts and pants (39-30-39).

            I love this skirt. I am 5' 10" 135 lbs, tall with slender hips. Most skirts I need to have altered to take the hips in, but this one fits perfectly in a size 6T. The fabric is really nice. And the skirt is really well made. I have long legs and it hits me just below the knee

              I have been looking for a navy skirt for a few months now and this is the best I've seen. I loved the feel of the fabric and the shape. However I ordered a "L" for long and I'm 5'7" it hit me about 4 inches below the knee, which isn't flattering on me. I'm going to exchange it for the "R" and I think it will be right at the knee.

              I love the fabric, color and length of this skirt, but the fit is slightly off. My usual size (4) was perfect in the waist, but slightly snugger than I'd like in the thigh/bum area, but the next size up was far too loose all around and I didn't want to have to get it tailored. I am keeping the 4 anyway because it's a lovely skirt and I am ever hopeful -- if I could just lose a few pounds I think it will look fantastic.

                I love the orange color. When I cut the thread that keeps the back vent closed the stitching keeping the hem unraveled. After one wear the skirt got wrinkled. I think I will keep the skirt anyway - I love the color too much.

                This is a really nice quality classic pencil -- and in the long its a great length for us tall ladies. Very flattering. Nice wool fabric, and the seam down the front gives it a flattering line. It goes with everything and I've worn it constantly since I got it. Great with boots.
