    I find that, depending on the style, I am between size 8 and 10. With this skirt, I found the size 8 to be too tight in the hips, and the size 10 too big in the waist. Since I didn't want to get it tailored, I (sadly) had to return the skirt.

    I wish I had read the other reviews of this skirt first and noticed that many people thought it ran small. I wear a size 8 in most Boden skirts, but this was much too tight for me. Unfortunately I waited too long and missed out on the size 10. My loss. I think the larger size would have been perfect. Classic pencil cut and styling, lovely material, length was perfect.

      This is a very nice skirt. Love the cut and color - I purchased the grey with black spots. It is stylish and trendy (pencil skirts are "in" now) but also a classic that I can wear for years to come.

      Flattering, lightweight skirt

        Seems to run a bit big (5'5 145, usually a 12, but took a 10 in this). Even so, such a good design -- pencil skirts often feel like so much work to wear, and this one is lightweight but still has shape. Nice silhouette.

        zipper problem

        I like the look and feel of the skirt; but after about 5 wearings the zipper got stuck in the 'up' position near the waistband - while I was in it! I managed to wiggle out but could not get the zipper unstuck, and finally had to have it replaced.

          I normally order 8L from Boden for anything I am going to wear to work. But after reading all the reviews I ordered a 10R and it fit perfectly. The length is at my knee.

            The wool in this skirt is quite fine in quality. It's adorable. The fit is a bit smaller than usual for Boden styles, and is comparable to the Breadwinner skirt (which I also love) in detailing and fit. I got the gray with black polka dots and it could literally go with almost anything!

              This is such a nice, classic design but runs very small.

                This skirt fits perfectly and looks great. It's thinner than I expected, but not too thin, and the wool is very smooth.

                  I love polka dots! So I was very excited to see this skirt in the catalogue - I ordered in an 8R, which falls close to the knee. I'm tall, about 5'9", and the regular length is fine. Every time I wear this skirt I receive great compliments. I usually pair it with a bright sweater in a solid color, and black tights. For a more professional look, I've worn it with a cardi/jacket. So happy with this skirt, so many different ways to wear it!
