Rated 5 out of 5 by jos65 Great Skirt
I've had my eye on this slim skirt for such a long time and finally decided to try it. To my surprise, the skirt fits me perfectly--I first purchased the Kaki and went back for the Black.
I have a pear shape and this skirt does not rise when walking and more importantly, it hits below the my knee--the downside is that the skirt wrinkles a lot from sitting, I will dry clean the skirt instead on washing--otherwise, this is the perfect slim skirt for me.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TH Superb quality - Please reorder
This skirt is perfect in every way. Please, please, please reorder this skirt. I will buy every color in my size if it returns. I cannot find a skirt like this in the store. Thank you for this gorgeous piece of clothing. It is beautiful and superb quality! I'm only regretful I don't have them in every color. Perfect for church!!!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Vy Sizing did not work for me
I bought the small based on garment measurements but it was too big. I exchanged it for X-small but it was too small. Had to return it. It was made very well. I was disappointed it didn't fit me in either size. 2 stars for the nice fabric and lining.

ordered my usual medium, needed a large. I'm an apple shape, fit through hips, good length for my 5'3" height.
If you're an apple shape, order up one size.
Rated 4 out of 5 by littleoneFL runs large
Lloved fabric, length ( am 5') but while I had checked the measurements, it was too large in he waist and, especially the hips. Regretfully, back it goes.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Mrs America Disappointing
I am returning this skirt due to the material and the shrinkage of the material. The material is heavy and the lining was a little longer after washing it. I let it air dry but it still doesn't feel any better. Sorry to have to return this.

Just received the French Blue in Large and it fits my curvy middle very well. Love that it is lined. It's really posh and is a great addition to my summer wardrobe at a great clearance price! Don't hesitate- I wish I could have gotten the white! Suggest always checking actual garment measurements at the end of the description.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ncalgal JOAN RIVERS QUALITY
Nice fabric, fully lined, button in waistband over non-exposed zipper.....quality fairly priced. BUT....not to sound "prudish", but at age 84,size 14, 5'6" tall, I like to look as nice, (and feel comfortable) as anyone might, but have trouble feeling comfrortable in clothes that are borderline too short in the first place, but then "hike up" another 2-3 inches above the knee when sitting. This is my pet peeve with all pencil type skirts offered, no matter the manufacturer. Thank God David prefers their designs fit at the NATURAL waist, claiming most women prefer it, and look better for it. A tall order, I admit, to try and satisfy the conservatively dressed young/professional and/or mature woman, with the less discerning to what is appropriate to age/figure/size. But JR fashions are top quality, have attention to detail, and evoke a subdued, current style. Perhaps that is because JR herself was a mature but glamourous woman.
Rated 5 out of 5 by nicegirl1 love this skirt
I rarely can tuck a top inside a skirt due to extra weight around the stomach area.This skirt is the exception. I ABSOULUTELY ADORE THIS SKIRT. I bought this skirt in the color white. I wore it the other day with a white tank top and pearls, Received many compliments.
Rated 4 out of 5 by rodneysmom Great classic...runs a bit big...
Got this in Khaki and Black- wardrobe staples. Love the length also. Nicely lined. Did find the black skirt, in paticular, running large. WIshed this came in XXS sizing. Waist and hips on the black XS larger than the Khaki XS. Will reorder hoping this was just a variation in sizing. Would love this skirt to be made in XXS, as a pencil skirt is meant to be more fitted.
Rated 1 out of 5 by rokapor Very disappointed
I received this skirt today and omg it is bad! It fits fine except the lining is about 1/2 to 3/4 inches longer then the actual skirt! And the lining isn't even. Part of it is about 1/2 inches long on one side and 3/4 inches longer on the other! Now I will have to have it hemmed. This is the first skirt I have ever order from Joan Rivers and this might be the last. I have ordered jackets from her and they are great but apparently skirts are not her thing or the company that makes them for her don't pay attention. Sorry Joan not more from me. To expensive to return. : (
