Love this skirt. I originally bought a medium which was too small, I am 5'6", 130 - so to me, it seemed to run slightly small, so I returned and got a large. Great material, wonderful fit...can easily be worn as a skirt or a dress. May need to purchase in more colors. I love Zappos!

I really wanted a maxi skirt and kept going back to this one. The price seemed steep, so I hesitated for quite a while. When it went on sale, I quickly bought one. The fit and look are great. The quality of the item is very poor. I have washed the skirt only once exactly following the washing directions and did not even put it in the dryer and already the seams along the waistband are coming apart in two places. I expect so much more from this brand even at the sale price point. Very disappointing.

Looks great as a skirt or a dress. The fabric is beautiful, and the cut is very flattering. I am 5'9" tall, and the length is perfect.

This skirt is comfortable but very long. I will probably have it altered. I am 5'6" and it is too long but due to recent surgery need a comfortable fit around the waist and this is it!

I really love this skirt, and am happy that it really is as long as it says! I wish the black would become available again as I was only able to get the white one. Also, I ordered up a size so it would look like the picture...a nice fit without being too clingy since it is a jersey material.

I absolutely love this skirt. Although I use it more as a dress because it fits me better as one. I'm 5feet 4 inches so as a dress it lands just a little past my ankles. As a skirt, I have to fold it over a few times or else it is too long. The material is so comfortable and doesn't wrinkle. My new Go-To skirt/dress for spring and summer!

This skirt is made of a nice, soft material and I like the way it drapes on me -- I'm 5'8 and it's a little snug around the thighs, then it narrows and flares out very subtly at the bottom. Very flattering shape. I don't care for the maxi-skirts that are designed to fall straight from hip to ankle -- I figure if I'm going to cover up that much skin I may as well cover it with a flattering drape to show off my curves.

This has become the classic staple that everyone should have in their wardrobe. Great as a skirt or dress, quality fabric. Perfect for cooler days or when it gets warmer.

I really wanted to love this skirt. I am 5'9, 150 lbs and ordered the large. The length is great for me with flats or a low heel; however, I am a bit hippy and the fabric is just too thin and clingy in the butt/outer thigh area. Probably could have used an xl too. If you're a little firmer and straighter than me, I think this would be a great, versatile skirt.

I am 5'8" 135 pounds and ordered a size medium. It fit perfectly and was the right length. As others have said, I roll more with flats, less with wedges. I am sorry to say I will be returning the item. I ordered white which was very see through. I loved the skirt but it has to go back.

I love this skirt! The skirt can be worn casually or can be dressed up. It is a quality fabric, and the material is not see through like some other brands.

I love the skirt I ordered!! I ordered it at lunch one day and received it by lunch the next day. I could not be happier that I received it so quickly as I needed it to go out the following day! Can't wait to order from Zappos again!

Expensive skirt, but it fits me amazing. I'm 6'1" and the XL size was surprisingly just the right length for me. I bought the red color and it has a slight orange-ness to it (kind of like tomato red). I've gotten lots of compliments on it. I did have to cut off the tag because it itched...but that's not a big deal at all.

I'll admit I felt pretty disgusted with myself for purchasing a maxi skirt for this price but it was so worth it! I'm 5'2, 101lbs and this wasn't too long on me. The best part of this maxi and the selling point for me is that I can easily adjust it to my height by rolling it up. No one would ever suspect either. I also wore this as a maxi dress and a denim jacket and it was equally flattering. It did seem to come down a bit in the chest area but nothing a little double sided tape can't fix!

Love this skirt. High quality material. I'm not tall - 5'6'' - and I didn't find it too long (once you fold over at the waist).

I'm tall (5'10) and love that this skirt is so long. It's not quite a maxi on me, but definitely long. So comfy and hides a multitude of sins. I didn't realize from the picture, but the fabric at waist actually folds over gently, so you can create a second look if you straighten the waist up. The fabric is soft and almost silky. It's a great skirt that I consider a staple of my wardrobe, so I'm being careful not to overwash it and to just hang dry. No shrinkage or color fading yet!

This product is awesome. I was looking for a cotton skirt with A-line cut and this one fits perfectly. It's true to size and I can wear as maxi dress or long skirt. I love Zappos!

I've always been the person who swore they wouldn't spend more on a cotton dress of any kind, including a maxi. But the quality of this one is 100% worth the price tag. I actually had to order two and originally a size Small, which turned out to slip down more than I liked when worn as a dress and was too long. I ordered the X-Small instead, and the length and fit are perfect when worn as a dress. If I'm wearing it as a skirt, I have to finagle how I fold it or wear it somewhat high-waist, but I still love it.

If you need a staple maxi black skirt for summer/spring, this is it. Long enough with the option to adjust by folding the waist, lightweight but not sheer, has a nice tapered A line bottom without being too flowy or too tight to walk in and just feels so comfortable. Dress it up or down - this is it!

This skirt is super cute! It's a thinner material so it is great for the warmer months. It has a nice fit and the folded waste sucks you in just a bit where you need it. Love!

I love this skirt! I am very happy with the length and material. I will have it dry cleaned, based on other reviews. I am 5'9" so the most annoying thing to me about most maxis is that they are not long enough. This one, however, is just right.

This is clearly a strapless dress, not a skirt. Splendid either mis-labeled this item, or Zappos needs to update their description. Wearing it as a skirt, it hangs well over 6" past my feet, and the foldover part is huge. It's pretty cute when worn as a dress, but unfortunately I wasn't looking for a dress.

I have just received this skirt and while I haven't had a chance to wear it yet, there are a few things that are very obvious to me. This is a skirt and not a dress as previous reviewers have stated. This skirt is meant to foldover; this is what makes it so long. If you have a tiny torso, then you may be some of the lucky few that can double this as a dress. If you are familiar with Splendid quality, you will not be disappointed by this skirt. I have Splendid leggings and t-shirts and they are all so soft-this skirt is also very soft and has a good amount of stretch to it. The skirt is true to size. So far, the only thing I wish is that there was more material above the foldover hem so I would only have to fold it over once. The hem is pretty far up so I have to get creative with folding it over.
