      A skirt that feels like jammies - how can you go wrong? I love this fabric, it's a little stretchy but heavy enough that no Spankx necessary. The only downside, and this is true of several Boden designs, is that the shaping/seaming on the hips is pretty heavy, and if your waist and hips aren't perfectly proportional, it can make you look a bit hippy.

        Nice but runs a bit large

          I bought the jacket that goes with this skirt and LOVE it, then bought the skirt and was surprised to find that it seems to run large - ie, 12 in the jacket fits great, 12 in the skirt is too big, even though I am pear shaped.

            I wish I hadn't waited to order this one. It's a great skirt. It's a bit thinner than I'd expected, which is a good thing. I'm between sizes and ordered the larger of the two because the skirt was described as fitted. I definitely should have gone with the smaller size. Very disappointing since it's now sold out. This one is going back, but I'll be keeping an eye on it to see if someone else returns the smaller size I need. It's such a comfortable fabric and can be dressed up or down. It would certainly be a great go-to skirt in the right size.

                I purchased this skirt in the blue, and it did not dissapoint. The fit and length were great, and like all boden skirts I own, the fabric is a nice quality. This is a great basic pencil skirt. Runs true to my usual Boden size 14.

                Normally Boden pencil skirts work well for me but this skirt was large and I did not like it well enough overall to get it tailored. If I had gone a size down, the skirt would have been too small.

                I will be wearing this knit pencil skirt to work. It is navy so it will go with a lot of the tops I already have. I bought the size that fit my hips but the waist is kind of big on me. But the next size down would have been too tight in the hips. I love the skirt so I had to keep it. I just won't tuck anything in.

                  Great skirt! The navy color goes with so much and the thin black band at the top gives it a stylish touch. It's extremely comfortable and fits snuggly without looking tight or uncomfortable.
