Very cute and flattering I love this skirt. I bought it to match some funky gray wedge pumps I have with yellow accents. They've been hard to match since the "in" yellow hue in stores is a neon-green shade. Yuck. This skirt is more on the mustard side, but still a fun, bright color. The fabric is a nice medium-weight cotton but requires some ironing after it goes through the wash. Great, slim shape, very classic. May 3, 2013
Runs Small and Stiff Material I agree with other reviewers that this skirt runs small. I tried on my normal size and the zipper was about 2 inches from even closing. The material also seemed pretty stiff, which I think is uncomfortable if you sit at a desk all day. Because of this, I decided to just pass on this skirt rather than trying a size up. April 13, 2013
Statement skirt I agree with the other comments that the skirt is a mustard, not a sunny yellow. But I prefer it that way. I love this skirt, and I can see myself wearing it all summer and into the fall with some boots. The texture is great, and it fits great, like most Limited pencil skirts. It may fit a touch snug, so if you are between sizes, order up. But I do not find that it runs terribly small. March 25, 2013
Mustard-Colored, Textured, Runs Very Small I always size up for a high-waisted skirt, and this one fits very snugly in a higher size. I kept it, but going two sizes up would have been appropriate - it really is that tight. However, I've been losing weight, so hopefully it'll be a bit more loose in the coming months, because it really is very pretty for summer. Agree that the color is mustard/goldenrod, not sunny yellow, and the texture makes it interesting - nice for hiding any lines or bumps! I'm 5'9" and this skirt is appropriate for work - not sure I would choose it for any other time since it comes across as conservative due to the coloring. March 19, 2013
Nice Addition Two things do stand out, the size and color. I had to get a size 6, which I can normally settle for a 2. Also the color is more of a mustard and not a sunny yellow like it appears on the website. Overall I like the skirt and the color makes it versatile to pair with various colors of shoes and tops.

Cute but wrinkles easily I really like the textured fabrics The Limited has introduced this spring, but this is 100% cotton, so it wrinkles very easily. While it's true that the skirt is not made of a stretchy material, it does stretch out as you wear it (again, it's cotton), so I would not advise sizing up. I feel it is true to size. I normally wear a 4 or 6 in The Limited skirts, and I bought an 8, based on the reviews. After wearing it only a few hours, it was too loose on me. I also do not think the color is totally misrepresented. It is not a dark yellow. I actually think it's lighter than shown in the small photo above. If you zoom in, that's a pretty good indicator of the color. March 14, 2013
Don't be fooled by color This skirt is great quality and fit as most things are but I'm really getting tired of ordering things and the color being completely different in person. I was super excited for a sunny yellow skirt to add to my closet but in reality it's a dark mustard color which I really don't like. Once again returning an item that looks totally different in person. March 9, 2013
Great Skirt! Well made, gorgeous skirt, very, very pleased. But hope you read reviews before you purchase because the skirt runs small. Purchased a size 4, which usually fits slightly loose. This skirt fits quite snug on me. Although I am small, I have a little pop to my booty, so size 2's are usually uncomfortably tight. I will be keeping this snug fitting skirt, very sexy looking and nice length too! March 7, 2013
Not perfect, but good The color of the skirt in real life is a bit darker than shown here. It does not match up with the yellow ponte knit blazer. The color is more golden...(think college team colors). It's still a nice color though. I'm a bit disappointed in the material, as it looks a bit dated for lack of a better description. As the other reviewers mentioned, it does run a tad small. If you are in between sizes, go with the larger of the two. I did not need to size up like other reviewers did, but I can tell what they are talking about. Maybe it's because there is NO stretch in this one. Positive notes are the length is as shown here and it's lined to help fight off those panty lines. It will work well in spring and summer. March 5, 2013
Runs small Great color and fit but runs small. My usual size 6 was too tight but the size 8 fit fine. March 5, 2013
Runs small GREAT yellow skirt if it fit like the normal sizing 16s. I love the color and texture of this skirt but i have to return it do to the sizing. If you are looking for a yellow skirt this is a great skirt to purchase as the quality is outstanding. This skirt doesnt have any stretch in it either. March 2, 2013
