    Fabric is just too thick

    I fell in love with the Mega Check pattern and absolutely had to have this skirt! But as with another Boden skirt purchased recently, the fabric is just way too heavy. The pockets don't lie flat on me (which I realize could be a problem with me, not the skirt!), but I can't help thinking it would all be so much better if this was a regular-weight skirt and not one made out of what feels like a very heavy wool blanket. The a-line design also doesn't do well with the heavy fabric, as it gives the skirt a Judy Jetson look. That said, the colors are gorgeous and the skirt looks like it does online. The skirt is true to my US Boden size, which is a size or two larger than my regular US size (I'm a 0 to 2 in other brands of skirts but a 4 in US Boden).

      I don't think that I've ever bought something online and received BETTER quality than expected. This was a pleasant surprise! High quality fabrics and lining, great pockets, I'll get a lot of use from this. A classic shape and style.

      I usually need to get long for Biden skirts, but this one felt a little too long. I am 5'4", and the long fell several inches below my knees. I did not notice the pockets poofing out, and I really like to have pockets!

      I am 5'6, 123 lbs., and usually wear a 4, which is what I ordered. For me, it was a good fit, but I am somewhat pear-shaped, and have a small waist. So I would DEFINITELY order up a size if you're not small-waisted. Like others have said, the pockets do stick out a little--on me, not so much, but I would have to return it if they stuck out any more. The felt material is quite substantial, which helps with the drape. I like the length, and the mustard color is fabulous! I will have fun putting outfits together.

      Like, but don't love

      • Wear To Work

      This A-line skirt is a well made product, and the citrine/yellow color will be beautiful in the fall. It is nicely lined, and the on-seam side pockets don't poof out. Taking it out of the package revealed that it is a really heavy skirt, though, and it might be just a little too much fabric. Purchased the same size as the cotton version in the spring, and like that one, this is just a smidge big on me, but not enough to go down a size. The spring version stretches with wear, and I fear this will do the same since it is only 70% wool. Although this should be a great skirt for my pear shape, I think it's just a little too much skirt.

      LOVE this staple piece

        I love this skirt. In fact, I have two other wool/felt A-line skirts, also in black, from years ago, so I wasn't sure if I should keep this one. However, when I tried it on it looked so sharp there was no longer a question about it.

        I ordered the Lois in the camel and blue last year. In comparison, this one is slightly shorter and a tad bit tighter. The pockets poof out a bit, but I've gained weight and I'm sure when I lose it again they will relax as the skirt falls lower on my waist. I'm 5'7 1/2", and the regular size 6 falls about 2" above my knees. I'm happy with this, as I wanted a skirt that was a bit on the shorter side.

        I was happy to find that, unlike last year's Lois, they hid the zipper on the back of this skirt, which I much prefer. Thanks Boden!

        As another reviewer mentioned, I'd love it if this skirt was offered in navy, and perhaps some sort of similar skirt in a lovely red.

        I so want to love this skirt, but the pockets on the side seem to bulge out and make me look 'hippy'.

        I really wanted to like this pattern, but I just could not. It wasn't unflattering, but it is very bold. Your mileage may vary, however. It's a very heavyweight fabric, so it will be quite warm. I couldn't get the pockets to lay flat until I pulled it above my waist, but I am not a slim person.
