      I love the pattern and texture of this skirt. It's great for the office and for a girl's swanky night out. I received so many compliments. My friends even started affectionately calling me "Initial. Four letter last name" (overpriced Popular Clothing Company, not to be mentioned)! So, much fun!

      It was unfortunately exposed to cigarette smoke. But, it held up just fine when I had it dry cleaned. Fits like the first time.

        Ohhhhh I so wanted to LOVE this skirt! I ordered my usual Boden size 8 in the gorgeous blue print, but it did not fit right at all. The skirt came up really high on my waist and was a bit too snug.

        Couldn't find a good fit

            I have ample hips and wear some pencil skirts well enough. Although I tried two sizes of this skirt, neither was becoming. The US 8 was uncomfortably tight and the 10 was not fitted enough and looked boxy on me. Am sorry about that because I like the mix of zesty graphic print in the basic brown color and the below-knee length.

                I was disappointed in this skirt. The colors are great but it was much too small and also unflattering. I wear either a 4 or 6 in a Boden skirt, and I ordered a 6 for this skirt. I could barely get it over my hips. The fabric hugged tight, and I was concerned that the horizontal stripes might be unflattering. They were. Even in a larger size I still think this skirt would have made me look larger than I am. The skirt also had little movement. It looks so great on the model but sadly this skirt went back right away.

                    I wanted to love this skirt. The pattern (I got the blue and white) was absolutely gorgeous. Unfortunately, the fit was weird. I usually wear pretty slim fitting things, but this skirt is tiny. It looked terrible on me. I had to send it back.

                      I was hesitant ordering a pencil skirt without knowing if it would be to small but I was very happy when I got the skirt and tried it on and it was beyond perfect, I would love to have it in all the colors. I am planning on ordering another one.

                      I always order a 4L in Boden skirts because I like the extra length (I'm 5'6"). I ordered this in the Blue and Yellow Floral. This fabric is absolutely gorgeous, but there's something about the cut of the skirt that's off for me. The fabric is lovely and substantial, but it's fitted around the bum and the waist but is somehow looser around the belly area, which is where I depend on a pencil skirt to hold me in. Instead, the particular design (of which I have another) means I can't tuck anything in. It works great if you're wearing a sweater or a shirt over the top so the belly is obscured. I'm sure if I knew of a good tailor, he/she could fix this in a jiffy, but I don't know any. So give this skirt a try -- it might be perfect on your figure! As far as sizing, I take a 4 in Boden, which is a 0 or 2 in most other brands.
