Rated 5 out of 5Â by moppenne So in love!!!
My gawd I love this skirt. Talk about SEXY and COMFORTABLE!! It is true that you must downsize 1 size but other than that - this skirt is perfection!!!! I cannot wait to wear it!! I think the length is fine - I am 5'6 and ordered a small - so its perfect.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by HAS2 Love This Skirt
I admired this skirt for several weeks but was hesitant to purchase due to the length, fullness, and concern with being able to dress it down without going too far out of my personal style. I'm only 5'4" so long skirts are always a concern for me. I generally don't like clothes that are full or that I lose my shape in. And I am not all the way boho in my style, so boots with long skirts and loose flowing tops paired with voluminous skirts don't really work for me in terms of options to dress things down. Having said that, when this came out in the colour pebble I was really drawn to it and decided to purchase it hoping I could make it work. I'm 115 lbs, 27" waist and 35" hip so not much in the way of curves. I am soooo glad I decided to purchase this. I purchased an XS because I knew I couldn't wear this too low on the hips so I didn't need the extra give in the waist band (though the XS would have worked either way, I think a S would have been too big even if worn on the hip). I had to wear pretty high heels to keep it from dragging on the floor and while I would have preferred wearing a more casual shoe to dress it down, the heels worked fine because the skirt was still long enough to hide most of them. I paired it with a basic sleeveless tank top to help dress it down and for me, the balance of a fitted top and the fullness of the skirt, worked perfectly. The material feels great. The skirt is fairly heavy but the XS fit perfectly so it didn't feel like it was pulling down. I will admit I stepped on it once or twice even with 4.5" heels, and when I was walking outdoors on the street I picked it up to keep it from getting really dirty at the edge of the bottom because it did still graze the floor at the longest part (even with it bustled as far up as the bustle string would allow), but overall I loved wearing it. I received many compliments on it. I would say if you're really intrigued by this skirt but concerned with whether the length or style will work for you, I recommend giving it a try. Before it arrived I was already prepared to have to return it but once I had it, and knew I wanted to keep it, I was able to make it work with only a small amount of effort. For such an interesting garment, it's worth it.

I was so excited when I got this. I'm not sure yet what I think. Based on the other reviews I ordered one size down xs and it's still very large on me. I am giving it a couple of days to decide. It is very full, but at the same time a very cool skirt.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by moncheri Too Full for me.
Sadly I have to return this one. I love the pictures, I love the movement with the ruffles, and I love the color in person, but itâs just too full and that fullness makes my hips look much bigger than they really are. Based on the other reviews, I ordered down and got a medium. If Iâd gotten the small instead, I might have liked it, not sure. Bummer, I still really love how this looks on the model, just not for me I guess.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by JustJen0117 Majorly stunning piece!
This is the most stunning FP piece I own. I wasn't 100% sure about the skirt when I first opened and put it on. However, after wearing with a black tank, cropped denim jacket and my Frye combat boots, it has become my absolute favorite thing from Free People. I didn't realize it at first but there are bustling strings for the train of the skirt. I undo it when I'm feeling a bit dramatic. I have so many things this skirt will go with - can be casual or dressy. LOVE it and so glad I got it!!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by alexcat Beautiful and unique skirt
This skirt runs very big! You must downsize - at LEAST one size, if not more than one. That being said, this skirt is beautiful. . . very unique.; great color - goes with just about everything; great material. Elegant, but at the same time, can be worn casually too. A great addition to a wardrobe.

I love this maxi! It is so comfortable and I love that even though it is 'dressy', it can be paired with so many things to wear it casually. Very stunning when you walk. I lift it up on one side with my hand while walking so I keep it nice. A must-have staple!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by uchiduck love, love this skirt...
skirt is more gray than black and does run a
little big. i bought xs and have to roll once to have it fit better, but still love the way it looks. not too dressy, but certainly not too casual. will look great with a short crop jacket and boots in the winter and with a tank and boots in the spring. can't wait to wear it out and glad i took a chance on it. I am 5'5 and usually wear size 0 or 2, and was worried it would be too long, but with boots it looks great and the train in the back makes it so different.
