    I've been admiring this skirt for a long time, but I am too curvy for most Boden pencil skirts. Reviews said this ran small, so I thought if I sized up from 10 to 12 that this might work. The 12 gave me plenty of room in the hips. It definitely sat lower because the waist was a bit big. Overall, I just felt the 12 was a little too big and I did not want to have it altered. Based on previous experience, I don't think the 10 would have fit, and they are out of size 10 anyway. The fabric is beautiful and the grey with black dots was a nice change while still being appropriate for work. The fit just did not work for me.

      Very nice skirt. My normal size fits great. I do not have hips so kind of baggy on the sides. It does fit fine in the waist. Love the light weight of this skirt, can be worn in summer. When you make your clothes at this specific vendor, they always always fit and are made very well to keep through the years. Purchased both the spot and black skirt - to work with spot jacket- which looks nice on larger women. Thank you!

      A very beautiful and well made skirt but this is a lesson to me -- don't order a size up, even to get a gorgeous item on sale! I am getting it hemmed right now -- 4 inches! -- and am hoping to enjoy the very generous amount of room at the waist. Looks beautiful with the matching jacket, though, and worth the tailoring.

      Bad fit & not special enough

            I returned both the jacket and the matching skirt. The skirt was too small, although I ordered it in my normal Boden size. The fabric just wasn't special enough to make me try reordering. It was just a thin fabric, without punch or detail to it, at least in the black. Maybe a satin gold or hot pink lining would have won me over! The matching jacket was nice, but the overall ensemble was blah, and I go to Boden for fun!

              I find that, depending on the style, I am between size 8 and 10. With this skirt, I found the size 8 to be too tight in the hips, and the size 10 too big in the waist. Since I didn't want to get it tailored, I (sadly) had to return the skirt.

              I wish I had read the other reviews of this skirt first and noticed that many people thought it ran small. I wear a size 8 in most Boden skirts, but this was much too tight for me. Unfortunately I waited too long and missed out on the size 10. My loss. I think the larger size would have been perfect. Classic pencil cut and styling, lovely material, length was perfect.

                This is a very nice skirt. Love the cut and color - I purchased the grey with black spots. It is stylish and trendy (pencil skirts are "in" now) but also a classic that I can wear for years to come.

                  Seems to run a bit big (5'5 145, usually a 12, but took a 10 in this). Even so, such a good design -- pencil skirts often feel like so much work to wear, and this one is lightweight but still has shape. Nice silhouette.

                  zipper problem

                  I like the look and feel of the skirt; but after about 5 wearings the zipper got stuck in the 'up' position near the waistband - while I was in it! I managed to wiggle out but could not get the zipper unstuck, and finally had to have it replaced.

                    I normally order 8L from Boden for anything I am going to wear to work. But after reading all the reviews I ordered a 10R and it fit perfectly. The length is at my knee.
