    Stunning -- and comfortable -- skirt!

      This skirt is gorgeous! I am 5'8", 148 lbs and the 10R fit like it was made for me. The Magenta color is lovely and the pencil shape is perfect. The material is soft and has nice ponte "give" to it, although it looks more formal than many ponte pieces. So many pencil skirts can be boxy at the bottom, but this one nips in just enough. I wore this with a black cashmere rollneck and got many compliments. I just ordered the navy and black too!

      A work skirt that doesn't itch, ride up or feel boxy? Boden, this is why I love you - I can look polished and put together and not be longing for my leggings and a woolly cardy all day. This is so comfortable, so nicely cut, and the contrast trim gives it that little bit of spunk, while still being totally appropriate for a formal workplace. Like other skirts from Boden, size down. Then size down again. I am not skinny by ANY stretch of the imagination - but even I had to go down a couple of sizes until the fit was right. Thankfully, at just on knee-length at the size I originally thought I was, two sizes down still kept the skirt long enough for work. The waistband is comfy and you have easy movement in the skirt, not like those brands that manufacture the "super-corporate" look. Yet, there is nothing frumpy happening here, just class and comfort!

      I sent this skirt back twice, I have not received the latest fit. I loved the style, comfort and material, just sooooo large. I measured myself twice. I hope that the next one fits, if not, I give up.

      The navy skirt looked great in the photo. When it arrived, I did not like the material it was made out of. It might wear well. It wasn't what I expected.

        Skirt has slight jersey feel to it, but it also doesn't crease from sitting. Comfortable to wear and looks dressy.

          It's snug but, thanks to the stretch in the fabric, easy to move in.

              I am new to boden and I am very impressed. even though I returned this skirt because it was too casual for me I was impressed with the quality. the skirt was like a well made tshirt in skirt form. I am not a t shirt person. true to size. I am 5' 9" and wt is 165 and the 10 L fit nicely.

              Material was too thin

                  I wasn't expecting the material to be so thin and spandx-y. Every line showed. It was just a weird material and really, it felt kind of cheap. The length was good- hits at or slightly below the knee as in the picture for a regular, size 6 length, but I just didn't like the feel of it.

                    I wore my skirt on a day that ended up lasting 14 hours and it was fantastic. Comfortable and looked great even after such a long wearing.

                    • Wear To Work

                    I am slightly curvy and a bit bigger on the bottom (somewhere between an 8-10 in most brands). This skirt fit very well at a size 8. I'm also 5'11" so I was surprised to see the regular length still hit at a modest level for me. I've got super long legs, so a long would be good if you are looking for something closer to the knee. The fabric is very comfortable although the cotton wrinkles a bit if you sit a lot. But because it is cotton, the wrinkles fall out fairly quickly as well. No eye hook closure on the back but still sat very close to the body and the zipper didn't peek open. Pink/Magenta came exactly as pictured and was a great fun color for a more basic dresser like me! Very work appropriate with a basic sweater, etc. But could easily be paired with a fun top for a night out.
