Women's Plus Size Matte Jersey Pull-on Skirt
Great drape to this skirt.
I have bought so many skirts in the past from Land's End but this one is particularly attractive. it is a bit longer (just below the knee) and the fabric drapes beautifully. It would be nice if this came in a royal blue and purple.

Fits great. Easy pull on to dress up or down.

What a disappointment!
It's my own fault for not reading more carefully before ordering. I saw "jersey" and hit "Add to cart." If I'd read farther along and seen that it's a synthetic, a poly blend, I wouldn't have bought it. Polyester is not a good fabric for plus-sized women: it hangs badly, perhaps a bit stiff? and it feels horrible against the skin as weather warms up, doesn't breathe as a natural fabric does. And this fabric is too thin and light for cold-weather wear. The drape of this skirt isn't as good as the cotton knit skirts - probably because the weight and softness isn't there. And, just in general, the "hand" is all wrong - thin and coarse. ----- I'm sorry, but I can find cheap polyester anywhere. I count on Lands End to give me a viable and affordable alternative to the cheap stuff; if this is the direction Lands End is taking its merchandise, it's not a good move at all.

Not as I expected!
This skirt was really not up to the quality that over the years, I have learned to expect from
Lands End. It was made of a very flimsy material that neither looked nor felt right. I love the 100% cotton skirts that you carried a few years ago. Also, the skirt was very short! The description was not accurate.
I returned it.

I really like this skirt. Good length about mid-calf and it's a nice weight -- not too skimpy. Some reviewers said it runs a little large, and I think that's true. I usually wear a medium, but ordered a small and it fits perfectly, so I'd order a size down and you should be safe.

This skirt can dress up or down- very versatile
This skirt was one of the first I bought this season. It's not one I would probably wear in the dead of winter but I can certainly see wearing every other time of the year. The fabric flows nicely. It looks great with boots.

This skirt is just what I needed. I knew from trying on a regular size at Sears that it runs big, so I ordered an XS petite, even though I usually wear a size 6-8 regular in a skirt. The XS petite fits well. The fabric is soft and there is just a tiny bit of flare to the A-line, which is what I like. It's a shame that LE doesn't make the skirt in a lot of additional colors, and I still haven't found a matching top that I like. But the skirt is wonderful.

Great Basic Skirt
I first ordered this skirt in Medium and found it was too large. I had ordered it based on my hip and waist size. I then ordered it in Small and it fits perfectly. Very comfortable and nice looking. I bought it for an upcoming river cruise in November in Europe. I think it will be perfect for the evening dinners.

I love this skirt!
I have a very hard time finding skirts that fit me, because my waist and my hips are not in proportion at all. This skirt is amazing. Fluid drape, flattering shape, nice fabric, and great for all seasons.
I wish they had them in more colors.

Practical and comfortable
Great drape. Great length. A line cut lets you stride around as well as sit comfortably.
I bought this in 1x as I am 5'6" and 190lbs. It fits perfectly and is flattering. Works with a variety of tops. Easy to pack for travel.
It is all season, as it looks equally good with a sleeveless top and my wide strap sandals, or with long sleeves and boots.
