Rated 5 out of 5┬áby jerseygrrl Love this skirt
I love this skirt. The colors just look better than they do online. The pockets are great. It is actually not quiet as short on me as it appears in the online photo. Perhaps I wear things just a bit lower on my waist because I hate having anything high-waisted. That said, it fits very well, not too tight, not too short. I love many Anthro clothes but most are too short to be age appropriate for me. In Anthro skirts and dresses I am usually an 8 or a medium.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby reneew Lovely Skirt
Simply, lovely. I hadn't seen it in a store, so when I noticed it on sale (though, admittedly slightly expensive for a cotton skirt "on sale") I decided to take a chance.
For reference, I am a size 4/6 in skirts. I usually buy a 6 in an Anthro skirt that sits at my natural waist, and this one certainly does. I am short-waisted, but the truth is that I really have no waist. The skirt is the perfect a-line, so even someone with hips would fit well in this one (I do not have hips). The skirt hits to just above my knee, and I am 5'3".
This fabric is top notch, a perfect weight, and certainly worth every penny. The embroidery is also top quality. The colors pop in person just as they do in the photo. The details of this skirt are worth the price (even full price) because they are done with the best quality materials and obviously made by the best. The front pockets are folded to a corner and stitched down with a small button, and because the fabric is a great weight they stay up instead of flopping down and losing shape. It is a lovely detail.
Even though this is a perfect summer skirt, I will wear it in the fall with navy tights, boots, and a sweater. I am very, very pleased that I took a chance on this one.

Rated 2 out of 5┬áby gumdop very unflattering
I have 29' waist and 37' hips, so am in between sizes 4 and 6. I bought 6, and the skirt is way too big. It's waist sits on my hips. But this is not even the main issue. I am very slim, but this skirt makes me look thick. Bulging pockets at the hips add to the problem. It is very unflattering on the body. The fabric is also weird - stiff and a strange khaki colour. I could not find a top to go with the skirt - colour-wise or style-wise. I am sending the skirt back all the way from Australia.
