This is a beautiful piece of clothing, and I wish it worked for me. If you have a lower hip to waist ratio, you should have a great experience with this skirt. Unfortunately, I have come to the conclusion that any skirt Boden makes that doesn't have a very full silhouette will simply not work on me, because they do not cut for my body type. I like things to fit at both the hip and the waist, but with Boden I find it's always one or the other. Since they do perpetually cut with this model, it must work for most of their customers. Sadly, I am not among them.

    This skirt is one of my favorite Boden purchases of all time and I have a closet full of Boden. It's my favorite line of clothing. I love many things about this skirt. First, the embroidery makes the skirt unique. The stitching is so pretty and the color pink is vivid. It has the potential to be very dressy because of the stitching, but the skirt fabric is slightly taupe/linen in color. I was surprised by that. The color and the fabric are casual, contrasting with the stitching; the combination of the silky tapestry stitching and the cotton fabric mean I can dress up the skirt or dress it down. I'm saving it for my daughter's high school graduation party ... something special for a special day. I also love the fit. Sometimes the A-line skirts can be frumpy b/c they go to the middle of the knee or just below it. This skirt falls just above the knee so it's not frumpy at all. The A-line is flattering, and there are even pockets! Pockets can make a skirt bulge in the wrong spots but not with this skirt, probably b/c the fabric is heavy enough that everything lies in a flattering well. I absolutely recommend this skirt ... as long as you don't live near me b/c I can't wait to be the only one to wear it. :)

    Didn't Love It

    This skirt is beautifully made and I wanted to love it. I'm a US size 14 and ordered the 12R which always fits perfectly, this was no exception, but the fabric is heavy and the pockets just aren't great. The skirt would just be more flattering without them and perhaps if made with a little lighter fabric. It's weighty for summer wear. I sent it back but really wanted to keep it, might work best on a very tall, thin woman. Please Boden, skip the side pockets going forward!

      Nothing beats a Boden a-line skirt! This one is particularly special, although I agree with a previous reviewer that the material is quite heavy. I ordered the pink diamonds, and it's on a beige/natural background rather than white or cream, which it appears to be in the pictures. It's still a knockout, though. It's luxurious and unique, and it even has pockets -- perfect! It fits true to my Boden size -- I always order 4L because I prefer the extra length (I'm 5'6"). A Boden 4 is equivalent to a 0 or 2 in most other brands.

        I wear this skirt for work and casual. You can pair it with a different top to make the look appear more casual or dressy. The skirt is high quality and lined. Very comfortable and fun! I also bought the turquoise top it is pictured with and it really looks cute together. All clothes I have ordered from Boden are high quality, unique, long lasting pieces of clothing that make a great addition to your wardrobe!

            I have this skirt now in all but the yellow. It's great for work, I've gotten many compliments. The length is great, the colors are vibrant and the cool thing about the pink and the red colors are that the background is more of a khaki than a white so you can weart it more through the seasons. The navy is my favorite one!

                This skirt is super stiff. The fabric is hard and doesn't lay well. It's a very exaggerated A-line so it bells out. And the pockets are right on the hip and pooch out. SOOOO Not attractive. I'm a curvy girl and this skirt put all the emphasis on the hips. I'm super sad because it looks cute in the picture.
