Joan Rivers Ponte Knit Pull-on Slim Skirt
I use this skirt for work quite a bit. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the lining does rip, as it is does not stretch like the skirt fabric. I wish you carried it in blue, too.
Classic. Elegant. High Quality. Professional.
My title above says it all! This is a great skirt. It is also very forgiving if you gain or lose a few pounds, lol! It has a great weight for year round wear. The fit is extremely flattering, LOVE the ever-so-slight narrowing at the hem; it's a small high-end detail that makes a big difference! I am 5'4", have a waistline, got a small. It comes JUST below the knee. Very flattering. Very flattering for fuller thighs, too. I originally bought this in the brown and black. Came back for the red and stone and just reordered ANOTHER Stone to put away. That's how much I like it, Joan. Bring back navy! This one is a winner as are most of Joan's dresses and skirts! I don't like the jackets with the elastic at the back waist, but you can't please everyone, lol!
Excellent Every Work Day or Any Day!
Great everyday work-horse skirt. Thank you Joan! The perfect ponte knit fabric wears like iron and it is true to fit. I am 5'4" and about size 14 and purchased three in Large; one each of black, brown and navy. The skirt covers the knee for a professional look. I do love having a lining, however, when getting into my SUV, I broke the threads which secure the lining. No worry - very easy to tack-stitch back into place. I have worn this with matching tights and a jacket or dressed it down with a turtleneck and have received many compliments.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE
Best skirt ever!! I own all colors, yes all of them. Would love to see more colors like, green, brown, grey, etc. True to size ladies. This is a home run Joan!!
I can't believe how wonderful this skirt is. Finally found a ponte knit slim skirt that works for me! I am happy. I take a medium and it is a perfect fit @ the waist and the length is perfect.
Going to order another when budget allows. Thanks Joan! You know what we need!
This skirt is okay, but was extremely wrinkled. Frankly, I expected better quality. It's more of a casual skirt.
Good quality for the $$$
The skirt fits true to size and good quality, but I returned because I wanted a back kick pleat, which this skirt doesn't have. Sadly, I returned it, but if you're looking for a nice ponte knit skirt that runs true to size, this is a good one!
I purchased this skirt in the beige and the black. I am a size 14 and purchased the large in both skirts. I also referred to the sizing guide. The beige skirt fit beautifully. The black skirt was considerably smaller with the waistband being so tight that it actually hurt because it dug in so much at the waist. The back of the skirt was so tight that it cupped my rear end, a look that is not exactly flattering. I'm not sure if I should reorder a large and hope for a better fitting skirt or size up to an extra large. The difference between a large and an extra large is four inches in the lower hip. I have returned the black skirt and am not happy about the dramatic sizing difference between these two skirts. This is a beautifully made skirt but I just don't want to have to deal with possibility of having to return another skirt.
I love this skirt! I love the fabric; it is thick enough that it doesn't show every lump and bump. I love the fit; it isn't too big in the waist! Also, it doesn't stretch out during the day, but has enough stretch to be comfortable. I am a size 14/16 and the large was perfect. Joan, you got this one right in every way!
This is the first skirt, in my entire life, that fits in my waist, hips and length without having to take it to a seamstress to make alterations. Please bring more color options! I need a navy blue and charcoal gray in a XS. I travel for my work and I know that this will be going into my suitcase every time.
bring this back
I don't understand when something is 5 star rated and a basic why it isn't kept in stock or brought back in more colors. Please pay attention to your reviews and keep these basics in stock. Love this skirt!!!!!
Bring back the medium size please...
Joan, my friend has this skirt and her medium fit me perfectly. Please bring this great basic back. I count on you for clothes that fit a petite person well! I have several of your jackets and no great skirts for them. We need this skirt back -;)
