I love pencil skirts and normally wear a 4 or 6 but had to go up to size 8 in your pencil skirt. However, this print goes perfectly with a jacket I own and makes a great outfit for work!

      Cute skirt, Odd sizing?

        I ordered this skirt in usual size 6 and had to return for a size 8. The 8 is a bit big in the hips but I will keep it and either have it tailored or just live with it. I have many other Boden skirts in size 6 that fit fine so I don't know if the sizing has changed this season or I have gained a few lbs in the middle. (UGH!)
        Love the print and the details and the fabric is substantial. (Not thin or clingy). Great for work!

        Not for me

            I first purchased this in a 4p and it was way too small. I was quite surprised. I returned it and asked for a 6p and it was too big. The sizing for this skirt is a bit off. I am skirtless. The fabric was beautiful and I wish I could have found a size for me in this style. :(

            Floral print will be a summer basic

              The pencil skirt with the lovely floral print will become part of my basic spring and summer wear-to-work wardrobe. I wish that I had either a slightly thicker waist or slimmer hips because the waist does gap a bit, but I know that I could not go down a size and still have it fit nicely around my hourglass shape. The length is perfect for the office, hitting me right at the knee.

              This dress is almost fluorescent in colour. It is really very bright. I like Boden's pencil skirts but I wish I hadn't bought this one. It is difficult to style. I have been wearing it with a yellow/white shirt but I end up looking ridiculously bright like a beacon. I should have exchanged this skirt for another pattern.

              This is a pretty skirt that I ordered in size 6 - I normally wear a 4 or 6 but have returned to exchange for a size 8. The jury is still out on whether or not it will fit as I have not received the exchange as yet.

                Love this. The stripe is bold and crisp and the grosgrain ribbon detailing is a great addition. Could fill my closet with these. Thanks, Boden.

                  The fabric has a great texture so no lumps and bumps show through. It skims your shape without being too tight or clingy.
