Love this skirt. I wear a 6 bought a Medium. It's fine, not too small at all. In fact I wonder if a small would have been okay. It does not fit like the photo. It is above my knees and I'm 5.7" although I don't wear it on my hip bones either. Great skirt for the money. I bought graphite which is a cool grey. not dark grey.

I think the advice that it runs snug is correct, so it just depends how you would like to wear it. Otherwise it is very comfortable, also very casual. The length is 26 inches, not 28.

Nice, but too much like maternity wear - The skirt was very comfortable to wear but the look just reminded me too much of my maternity clothes. Also, it does tend to "cling" to your hips and thighs.

Great skirt - super cute - does run large. I normally wear a M or L, but the XL fits me perfectly.

This is very, very cute. However, these skirts run small. I am a size 10 in women's jeans, and I bought the XL in all 3 colors, and they fit nicely. It's not a tight fit, but a figure flattering fit with a nice flare. If you are larger than a size 12, I would think twice about buying this skirt because its going to be really tight. It's very cute and great for a vacation trip and for the up-coming summer.

Love this skirt! I am 5'7, 158 lbs and the XL fit perfectly. This skirt runs a bit tight, I usually wear a large. It's the perfect length. I've already worn it to work with a sweater top.

A nice, simple skirt, nothing fancy. The fabric is very comfortable, with just enough weight to hang smoothly without feeling heavy. I wore it to my business-casual office and was very comfortable all day.

I agree that the only thing wrong with this skirt is that it does not come in more colors. I got the ink and purple colors. Which are both sophisticated versions of navy and purple.

I have this in all three colors. I'll probably get another black one. I'd rather wear this skirt than anything else I own. Dresses up, dresses down. A very good value.

Love the aubergine color, the comfortable, folded waistband, then length just at the knee.

Fits true to size; I tend to need a little more room in the hips and thighs (size 6/8), and this skirt is very slimming and has a nice soft fabric.

Cute, versatile stretch jersey skirt, an excellent basic. More flare than is apparent in the picture - this is definitely an A-line and not a straight skirt. Hits me just below the knee. There's a wide waistband you can fold down to bring the skirt up or keep up for a high-waist or longer look. A keeper. And feels like good quality jersey, worth the price.

Definitely runs small -- I wear a size 4 or 6 skirt and bought the Med. Need to return for a Large! But soft as could be.

I love this skirt! It's comfortable, light and the fabric is great. I'm a size 8 and the medium fits perfectly. I'm 5'8" and it hits right above the knee. It's perfect! I love that I can wear it with boots or with sandals. The color aubergine is gorgeous! I'm ordering another one in black.

This skirt is darling. I am 5\'0 and 110 pounds and got the medium since I was looking for a traditional fit rather than a slim fit. I worried that it might be a little long on me since I\'m so short, but it\'s actually perfect. Hits right around the knee (or can be longer, depending on how I wear it).

I love this skirt! I bought it when I first found out I was pregnant in one size larger than what I usually wear. It is the best item of clothing I bought during my pregnancy -- because of the way it's made, it "grew" with me (by moving the waistband up and folding or not folding it down), and I was able to wear it throughout my entire pregnancy. It doesn't look like a maternity skirt (of course! it's not!), and it's very chic. Again, I love it!

I love this skirt! I usually wear a 4 in pants, and I tried the small and the medium. The small was a little snugger than I wanted (i.e. panty-lines), but the medium is perfect. Very soft, very stretchy. I've been wearing it on weekends, but with a nice top, I should be able to wear it to work (business casual).

Perfect skirt - not too flared, not too straight. I love the waist, as I have a "thicker" middle, and don't like waistbands that are not wide and/or adjustable. I'm ordering another color tonight!

This skirt is made well, especially for the low price point. The fabric is very soft, however it has substantial weight to it. The length is adjustable with how you decide to wear the skirt. The waist band can be hiked up, folded over, or extended to be somewhat longer. I have two of these and I love them.

This is a great skirt, I ordered it in black too. It is so comfortable. I am 5' 11", so it falls very nicely on me. I don't roll the waist down.

This skirt is great! It fits exactly like how it looks in the photo and is super comfortable. It makes a great weekend/beach skirt, but could probably be dressed up as well. I didn’t notice it to be see-through like others suggested. In addition, Zappos’ service was outstanding!

I listened to other reviewers and ordered a size up from normal. I'm glad I did. That said, I'm sending this back. The flare at the side seams of this skirt is very pointy and looks a bit odd. I also couldn't find any shirts that looked okay with the roll-down waist band. Too bad, as it's seemed like a comfortable skirt and the aubergine color was quite lovely.

A great staple. I carry my extra weight in my hips and thighs, and this skirt is very flattering. I am a size 8-10 and would have normally ordered a medium, but based on the reviews I chose a large instead, and it fit perfectly.
