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.

      I own two of Boden's pencil skirts and was thrilled to see this one in this lovely summer fabric. However, when I tried it on, I found it creased unattractively along one of the stripes around my hips. I then tried on my other two skirts to compare them, and found that they do not crease over my hips. Perhaps this one does because the fabric is lighter than my others, or perhaps the stripes accentuated the crease. In any case, I sadly decided to return it.

      This is such a beautifully made and well designed skirt. Love the colors, but they are tough to match with tops I have. The easiest color to match is yellow - the one color I would never wear with my complexion. But I like the skirt and don't intend to give up!!!

          This is a Boden classic!! A must have piece for summer. The material is awesome and the colors are pure fun. As always, Boden made this skirt paying great attention to detail. It is versatile enough to wear from desk to dinner with different tops and accessories.I bought the striped/multicolored one and can't wait to wear it with different tops! Don't miss out on this one!!!
