Liz Claiborne New York Eyelet Trimmed Knit Maxi Skirt
I like it
Got this in the coral, only color left in my normal size, fit is fine. The material above the lace is like a soft tee shirt and it did not bag out in the rear after I did sit in it for a short perior of time, At 5.5 it hits above the ankles, which is good, I will not trip over it walking. The odd sensation I do get is the feel of lace against my skin. It rubs against my legs when I walk and it is a feeling I don't care for, but not so much as to make me return it I did wash it on cold and hung to dry and it turned out just fine Overall it is comfortable and does not appear to need a slip, although I was only is a well lit room when I looked for that issue. It is comfortable and will be an asset to my wardrobe in the hot weather.
I have received lots of compliments on this skirt. Its my second and I think I may order another. Its very comfortable for the climate in South Florida and I thoroughly enjoy wearing it. Bring some more colors and I'll order them all! :-) I normally wear a 2X, which is what I ordered, but next time I think I'll go down a size. The waistband was a little large.
Love the khaki skirt because of the way they did the layering, which keep you slim in places you want to be slim. I have bought the skirt in size XXS, which I never have done, w.o.w. the skirt size runs bigger than my regular size small. This may help you. I found out by watching the video.
LOVE THE CORAL!!!
I wore this skirt to church today (Easter Sunday). I received SO MANY WONDERFUL COMPLIMENTS! I love the color and the skirt is SOOO soft and comfortable! I am so happy that I saw it as a lunchtime special (great price) and that it arrived just in time for Easter Sunday!
Great summer skirt
Received it about 2 days ago and it fits perfect. I had sized down due to other reviewers and I was glad. I got the stone/beige color as it would go with practically any color top. I also plan to wear it when we go line dancing as it is a perfect look for these events. Fabric is soft near the top and the eyelet design bands are so nice as it is of different fabric and adds interest. You could dress it up with a scarf or more elaborate jewelry but if you just want to be cool on a hot summer day, this would be perfect. Lays flat at the tummy, so does not show when you put a top over it.
Ordered the Coral and Cream in XL and they are huge. I am going to try to send back for a L or even a M. Otherwise they are very pretty and cool for the warmer months.
Not for Me
First off, the fact that the skirt I received was beyond HUGE is entirely my fault. The description said relaxed fit and I should not have ignored it. Instead I ordered up a size and the skirt is entirely un-wearable. DO NOT SIZE UP LADIES or you will be swimming in this thing. But even so, I quickly realized that regardless of the size this style is not for me. Too frilly and countrified. Just too much going on at the bottom for me. The material is soft and I can imagine those who like the style feeling good in it on hot summer days. But I guess I prefer something less girly girl. Returning it.
Love this skirt
I thought this was a pretty skirt when I saw it but I was afraid it would be too long for me. I'm 5'3. The length was perfect and the material was very comfortable and the eyelet trim adds so much. I think the length was good for me because most of my height is from my waist down, anyway I love this skirt and is now my favorite. Thanks L C
Such a cute and comfortable skirt...
I love this skirt! I purchased it in dark blue. Nice medium weight cotton, feels substantial, without feeling too heavy. I was a little worried about the garment measurements. I normally wear a size 4 at brick & mortar. I'm 5'7" tall, 128 lbs and usually purchase jeans with a 33" inseam (to accommodate for up to an inch of shrinkage after washing.). A measuring tape around the smallest part of my waist is about 30", comfortably. I ordered this skirt in a XS since the online garment measurements state a relaxed waist for XS (size 2-4) of 26". When it arrived, I found that it fit nicely, no falling down and no feeling of constriction. I immediately turned it inside out and threw it in the wash, machine wash cold tumble dry low and noticed no shrinkage or color fade. Relaxed waist still measures 26", and the length is still just above my ankles. The fit is exactly what I'd hoped for, and I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase! I hope the info I've provided helps someone else with their decision on weather to buy this item, or not.
I love this skirt so much I purchased in all colors, in fact I purchase 2 navy.
this way I will have extra one.
Please bring out in more colors.(winter/summer colors)
Amazing skirt - runs BIG
I just received this skirt today, and based on the other reviews of it running big, I ordered a 1x. I normally wear a size 20 from Lane Bryant, 2x in Quacker Factory. I was nervous about only getting a 1x, but figured I could exchange it if needed. Reviews are right - runs BIG. This fits beautifully. Very loose, but not just draping or without shape either. I LOVE the eyelet detail. Very feminine and fun. Very lightweight fabric, but not see-through that I could tell. Very pleased, hopefully will get more if there are more 1x sizes (got it on clearance).
Beautiful but defective waistbands
I have now ordered this skirt three times in two different colors and two different sizes. Just so you know I do know what I'm talking about. These are sewn with defective waistbands. It stretches and stretches and then breaks after a wash or two. The skirt itself does not run large. It runs true to size. It's the waistband that fails and drops the skirt at least two inches, not to mention it no longer stays on your hips, making people think it's not true to size. Going down a size or two will not help. The waistband is still defective and still will break. Trust me. I sew but I'm 5'7". If I fix the waistband I will lose two inches and the skirt will no longer be a maxi, so they are all going back. This is otherwise a beautiful skirt in the navy and coral, but it's a lot of fabric with weight to it and the waistband will not hold it up. They should have thought of that. Usually when there are so many sizes left and a product goes on clearance, there's something wrong with the design of the product itself. I should've steered clear when I saw that there were so many sizes left. :(
