    no stretch in the waist

    If you have don't have a well-defined waist, this may not work for you either. I have 2 sixties minis from last year that I get a lot of wear out of so I immediately ordered this one in black in the same size (6R). This one has the same awesome fabric and I love the addition of the pockets. The difference is this one has a rigid waistband with no stretch. As a result, this did not sit 'below the natural waist' (as described) on me. I may try an 8P (8P is 1" longer than a 6R) but I expect there will be too much room in the hips.

      This was more of a short pencil skirt that the cute retro-mini I'd expected. Fabric is nice and if you want a short straight skirt, this will do you fine. Waist was a bit small relative to other Boden skirts.

        This skirt has a great shape. It will be perfect for fall and winter weather and looks very chic with the navy tights from Boden. Can't wait for the weather to get colder so I can wear it. The fit is perfect-true to size.

            Wanted a skirt for travel that I can dress up for work and dress down for play, Exactly matches my requirements - looks classy, packs and washes well, and has pockets. Bought black first, going back to buy one of the 'wow' colors too.

              The cut is flattering with some stretch. I was happy that I got the long length (I am 5' 4").

              I have a previous 60s mini, and I am happy with the new colors and pocket placement.

                First purchase from Boden and I couldn't be happier! I'm 5'6'' 110lb, and I wear 0 in most US brands and Boden's 4R fits perfect. This skirt can be work casual or dressed up.

                I love the look of this skirt, and it appeared well made. However, I decided it was shorter than I was looking for (definitely a mini). It was also snug on me. I considered going up a size but felt that it might still be snug in the waist (and it would be short).

                There was also too much fabric for me around the waistline, with the pockets being made out of thick material. It just wasn't slimming or flattering for me.

                The lining also was too "polyestery" and seemed like it would be too warm.

                Would probably be cuter on someone taller and slimmer than I am (5'3", size 10 US).

                  Great skirt! While I usually order petite sizes (I'm 5'2") I chose a regular length in my usual size 4 since I wanted it to be work appropriate (also I'm pushing 50 so "mini" isn't as easy to pull off...). The length hits a nice spot above my knees and the waist and hips are perfect! Also, the ponte knit is very forgiving and will be comfortable for my active work days.

                  I bought this last winter, and was initially surprised by the material. It was more of a floppy knit than I was expecting. I wore it throughout the winter, and it would always wrinkle in the back and the hem would flip up after a day of wear. I could never quite get all the lumps out of it either. I washed in on delicate and always laid it flat to dry and surprisingly the hem came unraveled by the end of the season. This is an easy fix but I've never had a Boden item fall apart before. Overall not my favorite purchase.
