Joan Rivers Wardrobe Builders Complement Slim Skirt
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.
More Colors Please
These are the best skirts. I wear a different one to work just about every day - mixing it up with either jackets or blouses. Comfortable & easy in summer & winter. Perfect for office settings. One request - more colors - please, please, please,
Usually I am a large in Joan's skirts. But this large practically fell off me. I exchanged it for the medium and that skirt fit but I was unable to move comfortably and it showed all my bumps and lumps. i loved the khaki color. I can't speak of the washing issues because neither skirt was worth washing.
Hi, I bought this skirt in Cobalt - tried it on and it was slightly loose.
Washed in Cold Water, noticed the major shrinkage so I didn't even dry it. It shrunk 2 sizes - the lining is now 1 inch longer that the skirt! Very disappointed. Not returnable as I wore and washed it after the 30 days - never expecting THAT much shrinking. Now stuck with 2 others and a Jacket that can not be washed as indicated on the label. Will have to dry clean. I wanted washable.
First time buying Joan Rivers line of clothing, purchase two slim skirts one in white and the other in stone size medium, am 5'9 and it fits just right, the lenght of the skirt is right about my knees, I love love it, no regrets, i will purchase more of her skirt or dresses. Oh by the way the material is great light weight good to wear year round.
The best fitting skirt EVER!! LOVE that it fits like a glove. Have it in 3 colors. Keep this template of proportions Joan. It is marvelous in the making!!
I always enjoy the fit of Joan's skirts. I am a teacher and really needed one of these skirts in cobalt blue. After ordering two in size XL, one was too big and the other too small. Being a pear shape, I will try again and see if the third time will be a charm. However, sizing needs to be consistent.
I agree with "pensulaw" who said that this was a weird cut, with too much fabric at the hip, and that a slim skirt shouldn't make you look wider, This may actually be a QVC cut, though; I find most of the fashions here favor a pear shaped body, small on top & larger at the hips. I tried the skirt on again, and it definitely doesn't work for me.
Nice skirt...runs large (I wish it came in XXS)!
I am looking forward to wearing this skirt (bought it in white), as soon as the weather allows. I ordered it in an XS, after reading the other reviews about Joan's skirts running large. I could actually use an XXS -- and, really, I'm not an XXS!!
I think Joan is a smart business woman -- smaller sizes help us to feel good about ourselves, and make us more likely to return to the brand that allows us to wear a smaller size!
I have a few of Joan's fashions and love them, but not this skirt. I ordered two
of these skirts, one in blue and the other in kaki. The fit did not match the measurement guide;
the waist was too big and the hips were too wide; and
the length was too long. I considered exchanging for the next size smaller,
but was uncertain about the sizing. I considered having them altered, but
the cost would not be worth it. Sent both back the very next day after receiving
