    An OK skirt but not more than that...

        I bought this skirt in grey herringbone and it does look good and the material is great, but the skirt just does not do anything for me - it is not that flattering.

        I got one in 6S which falls a few iinches above the knee and while it looks good, it is a bit stiff so it does not flatter my body. The R size falls just above the knee and is not flattering at all as it hits at the wider part of the leg.

        While the skirt is OK, it is just OK, and for the price I am looking for something that will be a little more

          I bought the pink herringbone; I loved the color and the quality of the fabric was very nice. The pleats are a nice feature too. The fit was quite large overall however, and it was not flattering for me. Even though I am returning it, I still recommend it because it is so cute. I'm disappointed it did not work out for me.

            I love this skirt's look. I am 5'5" and 124 lbs. I ordered a six and it just fits me when I usually wear a 4. I would say it runs small so order up. There is no give in the waistline.

              I love that Boden has now added a "short" option for this skirt, as many of their skirts are a little too knee-length for my liking (young ladies like to show legs!).

              I've found that this skirt runs a little large. I'm 5'5", 113 lbs, with a slim figure and the 4S is a bit too big. A 2S would have been perfect.

              I bought the skirt in the "grey herringbone" and it is beautiful. I'm hoping to snag more in different colors (and a slightly smaller size).

                This wool skirt is another winner for me. The size 8 regular fits me perfectly. I'm 5'4" and 130 lbs with an athletic build and, while I often buy petites, I find Boden skirts and dresses can run on the short side. So I ordered the 8R and it hits me just above the knee. The styling and cut are smooth fitting and the 2 front vents provide a little give for walking. Wish this came in a few more color options.

                  I had my eye on the orange plaid skirt for awhile, even though it's warm here and I can't imagine wearing it just yet. It's a bit pricey for me and I don't really need such a skirt for work (I usually bike and wear more casual clothing). Still, the skirt is awfully fun and with a thick pair of leggings or bike shorts under, I could get away with it. I could wear it outside of work of course, so we'll see. I got my usual size 6 and went with the R length. I'm a bit over 5'7" and it hits an inch or two above the knee, which I like. Fit is great (I'm about 128) and it's fantastic quality. I love how substantial it is and that's it's nicely lined.

                  I bought this skirt in the pink/purple and the matching sweater shown. When It came I felt that combo didn't look quite right and would be difficult to match tights and shoes to it. I need something more universal, not something will only wear a handful of time. It is a fun skirt, jut didn't work for me.

                      I am over 40 and was a little concerned that this skirt might be too "young" for me. I went with the long length (I'm 5'10)and it falls right at my knee, perfect!! It's a very classy look and will fit right into the office but I can also see pairing it with tights and boots and a fun sweater and making it totally casual. It's REALLY well made, great tweed and fully lined. I got the pink and it's a really nice shade, not too bright but not exactly subtle...an eyecatcher for sure.
