Women's Plus Size Knit Jacquard A-line Skirt
Beautiful, smooth material
I was happy with the material, is perfect. I like it very much. I usually wear skirts below my knees this one falls just perfect. Not as long as the model. I will use it a lot, with black, red, and even light blue cardigans. I was also happy with the sale price.

Nice comfy winter skirt; quite attractive, too.
I'm never sure about ordering from Lands End lately, since a lot of your stuff runs big. This skirt was a pleasant surprise. I am a generally a 4 to 6 and ordered the X-Small. Fits beautifully and is great length for wearing with boots and/or tights to keep warm in winter.Great for church or dressing up a bit, Liked it so much that I just ordered two others of similar style in brown (caramel) and navy heather. Hope they fit as well.

Cute skirt in picture - waist too high/tight
Agree with other reviewers that the waistband on this skirt is the main problem - it fits very snugly and sits rather high. Only fits a very small natural waistline, at least according to the usual sizes. I ordered both this skirt and the regular black matte jersey pull-on, both in medium. There were 2 inches of difference between the waistlines!

It's OK. You may want to wait for it to go on sale -- a lot -- before purchasing.
I was disappointed in this skirt, particularly at this price point. It is not lined and it doesn't feel substantial. The fabric seems cheap and I haven't washed it yet, but I have a feeling it might pill after a while. Finally, it rides up as I walk so it ends up being above my knees after a block or so. I would have returned it if I hadn't needed something to wear the next morning; the price is just too high for the quality of the skirt. On the plus side, it's very comfortable and I like the way it looks.

Small waist, generous hip; love the fabric
If that's your shape, try this skirt. I am 5'3" tall, 120 lbs, hippy, and seldom find garments which work well with my shape. I LOVED the cozy, easy-to-wear feel of this skirt and found it was actually too generous in the hip. It is not an A-line so the wider hip didn't fall right. I wish the skirt had worked because I loved the feel of the fabric and the print.

Covers the knees. Great with boots. It is casual enough but can also be dressed up. Love this skirt!

I absolutely love this skirt. It is soft and comfortable while looking dressy and polished. I am fairly small waisted with bigger hips and it fits me perfectly. I like the look of the wide waist band, and the a-line skims over what I need hidden and is very flattering. It looks great with a shell/camisole tucked in-- the fabric is heavy enough not to show any bulges from the fabric of the shirt (not sure how it would handle a blouse tucked in). I am 5'7" and it hits me just below my knees, pretty much the way it looks on the model in the picture. I bought the corsage cardigan in raspberry plum to wear with it and they look beautiful together. Seriously, I could not be happier with this purchase.

This Skirt is Wonderful
I can't say enough good things about this skirt. The fabric is wonderful, it's so nicely made, the fit is fabulous. It's not tight like a pencil skirt, but it's not frumpy like an a-line. It falls nicely and is a great length - just below the knees. It looks wonderful with boots. My only complaint is that there aren't multiple colors to buy. If there were, I'd likely get them all.

Wonderful skirt - very versatile
The fit is great! The fabric is soooo comfortable. I can dress it up or down and always look good. Great addition to any wardrobe. I especially like that it covers my knees. Mature women shouldn't wear above the knee skirts no matter how thin they are.

Nice fabric. Elastic waist too small.
This skirt is way too small and has a large elastic waist band that is not mentioned in the description. I am a consummate "medium" buyer and the majority of Lands End items fit me well. The waist in this skirt is too wide for a petite frame and the elastic is too tight. This leads the stretchy fabric to pull around my hips and thighs which is not attractive. I will be returning this item and not simply exchanging for a larger size.
On the plus side, the fabric is soft with a nice pattern. The length is what I expected.
