Women's Plus Size Paneled Skirt with Kick Flounce
My Favorite Skirt
I bought this skirt last year, and have gotten so many compliments on it -- the shape is the perfect combination of flattering and comfortable, it hugs the hips up top and flares a little at the bottom so you can walk easily and it shows off your curves. I bought the purple one, which is lovely. I wish I'd bought the brown one too while they still had it in my size. The skirt does run large -- I'm currently a 16 in LE clothes, but the 14W is pretty loose on me. I've lost a fair bit of weight, and while that's generally a good thing, dropping out of the size range that they offer this skirt in is a major bummer. I'm also tall -- 5'11" and this skirt is the perfect length on me -- to about the knee. The fabric is warm (I wore it through a Christmas vacation to VT recently) and lined and has stood up to a fair amount of abuse in the last year without showing much wear.

Nice fit, nice fabric, great skirt
I am usually pleased with Lands' End purchases, but I was pleasantly surprised by how lovely this skirt is; perfect office wear, comfortable and stays looking good all day.

Fits a little larger
This skirt fits a little big. It hangs very nicely and is quite comfortable. The fabric was lighter than I expected it to be.

Beautiful skirt for the office and beyond
The fabric of this skirt is very nice, the purple color is really beautiful, and it is quite flattering on. The style is unique with the back pleating at the bottom, which makes the skirt great for the office and beyond. I love all types of Lands End clothing, but particularly the clothing that is appropriate for the office. Very high quality and good looking, too.

I got both colors because of the great price. A beautiful addition to my winter wardrobe. I do straighten the skirt like mentioned before. The quality of lining and fabric is exceptional. I am looking for sweaters to wear with the skirts for more options.

Can be dressed up or down. very comfortable. seems a bit large but I've also been losing some weight but not as much as it seems to appear in this skirt. :-)

Great pencil skirt; does stretch during the day
I love this skirt -- very good quality fabric, and I'm very grateful for the lining. The purple herringbone adds some fun color, but is still office-appropriate. I'm 5'4" and wear a 3X. It hit me below the knee; I like the length -- short enough to be modern, but long enough to be flattering. It DOES stretch over the course of the day, but I didn't have a problem with that: when I first put it on, it highlighted my stomach in an unflattering way (I just wore a shirt long enough to cover that, and it was fine), but by the end of the day, it wasn't as clingy. The one thing I don't like about this skirt is its tendency to twist around over the course of the day -- whenever I stood, I had to make sure that the back was still in the back -- but it doesn't annoy me enough to detract from how much I love this good quality, gorgeous garment.

Don't Buy this skirt
I wore this skirt for the first time today. First, I had to iron out all the wrinkles it had when it arrived. By the time I got out of the car at work, I could see I was a wrinkled mess. The little pleat thing in back was really bad. Two hours in to the day, it had stretched out at least 1 size, if not two. I was truly embarrassed by how it looked by lunchtime. This thing went into the donation bag the minute I got home. Certainly not worth the price even at an extreme discount.

Just what I was looking for!
I have been frustrated lately finding skirts in general, then finding one that I like. I was on the hunt for a wool skirt, not too short, but not long, either. This is PERFECT! It is tobacco brown in color with a faint herringbone that doesn't stand out too much. Fits perfect and hits me right below the knee~I am 5'4" on a good day : ) The little flounce in the back is subtle, not over the top. Very comfortable to wear and nicely lined. Please continue to make classic pieces like this!! Thank You!

This skirt fits like a dream. One caveat - the flounce needed to be ironed when I received it. But I think this is due to the nice flowing hand of the fabric.
