    I ordered one size up based on other reviews and the skirt is a bit loose, but I think it looks great on so I don't mind the fit at all. I was pleasantly surprised by the lining inside the skirt which is a gorgeous smooth aqua fabric. I ordered the dark indigo denim and I love the color. I am strongly considering buying more of this skirt in other patterns.

      I can finally write my review about this skirt. I always order a size 6 skirts from Boden and they always fit. However, this was not the case for this skirt. I ordered the 6L and waited patiently for this fabulous skirt to arrive at my door. I took it out of the package. The colors are fantastic, bright and cheerful and the pattern is crazy fun. I unzipped it and when I began to put it on I knew it would not fit. It was sooooo tight around the hips that I could not get the skirt zipped up . How could this be happening!! I was really disappointed that it didn't fit so I had to decide whether to send it back or re-order in another size. I sent it back and ordered it again in a size 8L and once again waited for it to arrive at my door. When it arrived I immediately opened it up and tried it on. It fit like a glove. It was perfect and as I looked around my closet saw all the great cardi's I could wear with this skirt. Going on a trip? Take the skirt and just about any color of top will work for the skirt. What a great skirt!! I am glad that I ordered a bigger size.
      The only reason I gave this item 4 stars is because the size is not true to fit, it a big way.

        As a 6'2" woman, I appreciate a pencil skirt that is long enough for professional wear without sacrificing style. It holds its shape nicely, has enough give for comfortable bend, and wears well in the workplace. I completely recommend this skirt for tall women.

          An absolute perfect fit size 4--has a fabulous slimming effect, and very comfortable. Fully lined, but not uncomfortable even in summer weather. I ordered the same skirt in the striped pattern but I needed a 6 in that one, for some reason. Love it, love it, and am wearing with every kind of top, dressing up or down. Now I only have to be afraid of the day I finally wear it out completely. Maybe I need another one as a back-up? :)

            Purchased this skirt to replace a similar I item that I bought about six or seven YEARS ago. I washed the old skirt so many times, it's changed color. This skirt has a lovely silky lining but no pockets. The old skirt did not have a lining but had pockets. I hope to wear this skirt to death too!

              I bought this in denim a few months ago, but haven't worn it because it's just too tight in size 6 (my usual Boden size, though lately, I've been buying 8 in bottoms). So I sized up to 8L and now it's much better. There's a little wiggle room, but for work (I teach), that's better than too tight. I like the extra length, too.

              The dark denim is beautiful and classic, pencil shape is perfect, and the satin lining is a nice Boden touch.

              Runs very small

                    I am almost always a Boden size 6 but this skirt was VERY tight in both the waist and the hips. It was a nice print and had a nice weight to it, but it had to go back. It seems Boden clothes are running smaller than usual this season.
                    I"m hesitant to order another. Maybe if it goes on sale again.

                    Great style but a hair snug. Emphasizes the belly are in the fit. Length is perfect and the lining is very silky and comfortable.

                    Loved the skirt but had to exchange for a larger size. I should have used the fit predictor when ordering, I did not notice this resource until I had already ordered.
