Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs Large I really like this skirt but it does run large. It's a comfortable skirt which I'm sure I'll get lots of use out of.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice skirt, but didn't work for me. I got this skirt in my normal size 28 and I wish I would've got a 27. I found that it runs a bit large and therefore was not flattering on me. Such a bummer because it's final sale and I can't return. :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Go To Summer Skirt I'll be wearing this a lot this summer. It's cute and casual, perfect for most occasions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fit is fine Cute skirt. I bought my usual jeans size and it fits now. Am concerned about it whether it will wehn it shrinks in the wash though. The pockets ride high in the back if that's a concern- on me, as I *don't* have a flat backside, they aren't where they would be on a pair a jeans. fits at the natural waist. The slit does come up quite high but reveals no more than a mini would without being hoochie-mama. I like the 70s look of it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from True To Size The skirt is true to size. It's 100% cotton. So on one hand, it's going to stretch out with wear, but on the other it will also shrink back with wash. Between two sizes I would order up, not down. Normally I love 100% cotton, but this garment really could have benefited from a touch of stretch. Particularly for the waist & hip area, for both comfort and movement. It does look cute though. True to the 21 inch length. I'm 5'3" and it hits me perfect, I imagine the over 5'8" crowd won't fit this skirt as pictured on the model. It would be much shorter on them. So this is good for petites. When sitting with legs uncrossed, a straight shot of your panties is possible, fyi. I sort of do a 'shift' thing when sitting down to counteract that feature.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Actually, I found this skirt runs small. Unlike the other reviewer, I found that this skirt actually runs quite small. I picked up my usual size in jeans from Madewell for this skirt, but it was much too small. And the slit is much more conservative in the picture online - in actuality, the slit comes up much higher - too revealing for my taste. I wanted to like it, but the fit was just off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why must you tear! I LOVED this skirt. So much that when it ripped up the seam when I was sitting down the day I got it, I brought it back and got a new one shipped to me a week or so later. Of course, the same exact thing happened again merely hours after putting it on. This skirt is gorgeous, but the slit in the middle leads to rips that cannot be fixed. After returning the second one, I decided to give up on this beauty. Unless you plan on standing still with your legs tightly tucked, I do not recommend even looking at this skirt. This is the first time that I've ever had a problem with something I buy from Madewell, so I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt on this lemon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cute skirt, but poor quality. I really wanted to love this skirt and planned to wear it often as I live in a warmer clime, but after wearing it for only the second time, the fabric ripped apart from the middle seam. This is unusual, as I have ordered many garments from Madewell and never had any issues with quality. Other reviewers have mentioned this same flaw. Necessary to return this garment, unfortunately.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Low Quality for Madewell. Being a frequent shopper at Madewell I shop the final sale department fearlessly because I know my size, I know the fabrics and I have so far purchased final sale items on Madewell without consequence and been extremely happy with my "steal" This denim skirt was the one exception. I loved the appearance of the skirt right away. When I saw the skirt go on sale, I gave in and purchased it in my regular size 24. When it arrived, I was surprised to find it very snug. To get the skirt on was a painstaking process, however I found that once I actually got the skirt up to my waist it fit comfortably, so wrote off the problem as fixable. Not even one day into wearing the skirt however, I bent over and the skirt ripped up the middle. Never before has Madewell quality been so low and I'm glad I bought it on final sale. I will certainly give this style skirt another try sometime soon, but let's just say I'm glad I got it for such a low price on final sale.
