Great, practical skirt
August 26, 2008

I've worn this many times since receiving it. It's attractive, comfortable, and practical. I don't like shorts on me that much. This skirt is a great alternative. Can be dressy or casual.

My new favorite golf skirt!
May 25, 2011

I love this skirt! I played golf in it and it was great. I love the stretchy material and it feels great against my skin. It is a little longer on me than expected because I am only 5'1" tall. I do wish it was a skort, but I just wore boy shorts underneath. The fit is right on for me. I'm about 115lbs usually. I'm planning to order more in the next week.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use

October 22, 2008

Very cute skirt! Comes just above my knees and fits great! I got a small. I am between a 4 and a 6. Could almost use a XS. But then it wouldn't be able to sit low on my hips. I got the brown color, very happy with choice. Soft and attractive!!

Love it!

This skirt is simple and perfect! Great for sliding on over bike shorts after riding! Fit is true to size.


Perfect little beachcomber cover-up!
September 26, 2009

This skirt is perfect for my Hawaii vacation; easily rolls up to save space. Great for wearing over the swimsuit while shopping, eating etc. The fit is fantastic - so easy and comfy to wear and look great at the same time.

Very pretty and functional
July 25, 2012

I got this as a present for my wife. She looks great in it! She is a very fit/athletic woman, and this skirt shows that off. The skirt looks nice for a summer afternoon date or a trip to the store. It really looks cute with Keen sandals.

Pros: Great design, Cons: the hem edge needs ironing after washing.

Perfect summer skirt!
July 20, 2011

This skirt is perfect for spring and summer weather! I bought the coral print in a small and I plan to buy another as a gift for a friend! The coral color is bright, but it fades quickly after just one wash. The white on the skirt is also pretty sheer. You definitely cannot wear colored underwear underneath this skirt. I love the fit and length of the skirt! And the length is even adjustable as you can flip the band over without compromising any style. The one drawback to the skirt is the lack of built-in shorts! I bike everywhere, and getting on and off my bike is definitely not an option in this skirt. And due to the sheerness of the white in the printed colors, I can't find a pair of spandex shorts in the right color to wear underneath. I'm 5'5" & 130ishlbs with curvy hips and a full butt. Normally I'd order a medium, but I wanted the skirt to hug my hips so I ordered a size smaller. The skirt hits about mid-thigh on me.

Light, easy skirt!
August 05, 2009

This skirt ended up being exactly what I wanted: a cool, light, summer skirt. It is surprisingly lightweight and stretchy, yet hangs nicely. It washed well and after ironing was like new. I'm 5'6", 123, and am happy with the medium.

The item is cute and soft. I felt it ran small. I am not a large woman and this is small. Would keep it, but for the money- it was ok. This had a very fun summer design

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

great sporty skirt
June 04, 2009

This skirt is very easy to pull on over swimsuit, but works just as well running errands in the city. Easy to care for and very summery. I am 5'2" 113, and the xs fit me perfect. Mid-thigh length.

If you want a short skirt ...
June 23, 2011

This skirt is shorter than I expected. I'm 5'1 and thought that this skirt was too short for work and anything else that might require sitting or moving. I love the fabric and the pattern, though, so I'm going to order another one in a size up and see how that works. The "white" part of the pattern isn't a true white. It's more of an off-white, maybe because the cotton is organic. Just fyi.

Spring is near!
March 23, 2011

I fell in love with the color and the pattern of this skirt and can't wait to wear it this spring! The quality is excellent. This skirt is made out of nice stretchy fabric and washes well. It can be worn for special occasions, dressed up with a nice cardigan as well as casually with a t-shirt. I hope to see them in many more colors and cool designs.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use

Great fit!
January 14, 2009

This skirt has a great fit and cute design. I'm usually about an 8 or 10, and ordered a medium, even though I would normally go with a large for loose fit. The medium fit perfectly.

Feels great
October 25, 2011

Women's Tidal Skirt has a great fit and feels great. The design and color are fun and flirty. I would recommend this to all. The waist band fits below the waist and above the hips.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value

May 12, 2009

Great length - not too long. I am 5'10" - hits me low/mid thigh. So nice and feminine and you can wear it low on your waist comfortably - hooray!

Love it!
August 18, 2009

This is the easy, comfy, everyday summer skirt I was looking for. It's a good length--short, but not too short, and fits true to size (5'5'', 120 lbs, and Small worked for me). I also like the A-line, which gives it a flattering flare and drape.

Beach or Dinner
November 28, 2009

Nice skirt for over swimsuit or leggings. I'm an 'apple' shape with thicker waist and the drawstring allows for no-squeeze adjustment to my size. The skirt has a flattering fit - not too tight, very simple with nice cut and drape.

I love them!
April 10, 2009

This are the best summer skirts, they fit great. I purchased the new color every year. You can put on a tank top and flip flops and you are ready to go.

Cute, comfortable skirt. Will definitely buy more
April 12, 2012

I got this skirt to use on a spring vacation in Maui. It was so comfortable. It goes well with almost any color. I wore it to a conference with a cardigan over a colorful top and after the conference, proceeded to the beach and boardwalk wearing the skirt with a tank top. It is truly a very versatile skirt. I got 2 pairs and am planning on getting another one to use as my summer staple wear.

Pros: Great design, Ease of use

Great for Beach Wear!
December 13, 2009

Perfect skirt for using as a cover-up or just tooling around town. Fits comfortably and true to size.

perfect summer skirt
June 13, 2009

This skirt will go with any t-shirt and sandals for a casual, comfortable summer look. It's light-weight and airy, great for hot weather, and easy to throw on. I have the brown one and I like how it will go with any color shirt. I've been really happy with all my Patagonia products from Altrec. At 5'6", 125 lbs, the small is a perfect fit.

Fantastic skirt!
May 30, 2009

I am really impressed with the look and feel of this great summer skirt. Being shorter (5'4") most average skirt lengths hit at a funny point on my calf and are unflattering. The length of this skirt is perfect without being too short. Sizing is right on too!
