Joan Rivers Wardrobe Builders Complement Slim Skirt
bought this skirt in 2 colors love it. the fit is great go with your regular size on this one
Really, nothing special
I ordered small tan. It fit in the waist but the hips were too big. The fabric was thin and just not something I would use. Returned it immediately.
DON'T THINK TWICE
I needed a "corporate" white skirt for work and decided to try this one. I was very skeptical because straight skirts are hard to fit and white can be tricky. When I tried on this skirt I was pleasantly surprised. It is a perfect fit (bought a small) and the material isn't flimsy. The lining keeps it from being see through. I am 5'7" and it hits just below my knee. I may have it hemmed because I prefer a skirt to hit the top of my knee. That is my preference and doesn't affect my overall rating. I can't wait to wear it with a gingham shirt and colorful jacket. Thank you Joan.
Skirt fit well across hips, but the waist band did not lay right and pulled skirt up.
Fabric poor--wrinkled within minutes of wearing and sitting!!!! I purchased
black and kahki. Black fit better than kahki. This is the second or third item of
Joan River's clothing I have purchased where the fabric has been less than
Wanted to love it!
Bought this skirt after seeing it on air with Jane Rudolph Tracey stating she has about 7 of them. I was super excited and ordered a medium. (I now know that Joan's stuff runs larger or should I say "normal") I'm 5'6" 155lbs and athletic. The size med was roomy but I figured after washing it should fit perfect. So I washed it as instructed and threw it in the dryer for 20min to hopefully shrink it a bit. I really think it's a great wardrobe builder, it did shrink some but holy smoke it falls weird on me. It falls below my knees and there is no way for the price point that I would pay to have it altered. I'm guessing that Jane and Joan must either get petite or have it altered. I actually went back to look at the picture online to make sure I wasn't losing my mind, it falls at the knees or just above on everyone. What the heck??!! Maybe if it was tighter it would raise it a bit??! This would be super for someone taller I guess. It does seem to wrinkle easily. Sadly it's going back, boo:(
Nice fit. Bad Fabric.
Purchased this in white. After sitting in this skirt for about 10 minutes it was a wrinkled mess. Fit was very nice for a size 16. Just wish the fabric was different blend. Will send back ASAP.
best skirt ever
I am a little over weight but the skirt fits beautifully. I like the stretch in the back. It makes the fit great and I love the cobalt blue. I especially like the fact that you didn't need a slip. Thanks
The best skirt and so flattering...
I got this skirt in white and my normal size and it fits perfect and is so flattering!! I want it in every color!! What a great investment piece! Thank you Joan for giving us such quality pieces for such great prices!!! :-)...Donna from Pittsburgh
Best Skirt Ever
Joan nailed it with this skirt. I received the white one 2 days ago and I'm coming back today to order more colors. The fit is FABULOUS! I've never had a skirt that fit so well. Please bring it back in more colors Joan.
Not a Good Cut
I have many Joan Rivers jackets and three of the regular Joan Rivers Slim Skirts and love all of them. However, this skirt does not have the same cut as the original and did not fit well even though I ordered the same size - there was too much fabric and it just didn't have that nice pencil skirt look. I returned it and will keep my fingers crossed that the
Slim Skirt will soon be restocked. If so, I will order it in every color that I don't already have.
I was so hoping to love this skirt,as a black pencil skirt is a wardrobe staple,but like many other reviews,after washing this skirt according to the directions,the lining hangs lower than the skirt,and it could use ironing.No thank you! C'mon Joan! your name is on this.I would have a serious chat with whoever is making your skirts.
Disappointed in the end.
The size and fit are great, but after I washed it, the skirt was really wrinkled and had shrunk just enough for the lining to show. Too late to return & it still fit, so I hemmed the lining & thought it would be ok. Second washing & the skirt developed a crease along the hem & looks pressed in. Very disappointed.
