Perfect Little Black Skirt
I was positively pre-disposed to this brand as it has a socially responsible business model. However, the product also has to be great. I was apprehensive mail ordering a skirt as fit is sometimes an issue for me, however, I was delighted that this beautiful skirt fit perfectly (true to size for me) and looks as nice on as in the photo due to the mid-hip fall (not too high for the A-line tent effect, or too low and showy like tulip skirts). This cut is flattering for my shape (pear-shaped). The merino wool is not heavy or scratchy, and will work for any season. The length is just right for me at 5'8", an up-to-the minute looking knee-length. It traveled well too. I love it!

my second favorite icebreaker clothing item
Between my husband and I, we have bought just about 3/4 of the icebreaker line of clothing. Besides the Luna jacket, this is my second favorite clothing item. It sits well on my body even with the extra lumps of fat that I carry. There's and extra wide panel of fabric at the waist that you can fold/adjust for coverage of the midsection, similar to some yoga pants. I can see wearing this throughout the 4 seasons by layering. Extremely flexible for dressing up or down. Can't wait to take this traveling with me.

It is a nice dress but a bit oversize to me. I usually wear small size (5'5, 110 lb) but still a bit loose. I think with the XS would fit me perfectly. Therefore, I have to return it and may consider to go for the XS next time.

I was disappointed in this skirt, based on the beauty of the picture. I have a roundish kind of figure, and felt I would do better with more flair at the hemline. Also the color is rather muted and as a blonde, I do better in clear colors that are more vibrant. Unlike most of my purchases from Icebreaker (my favorite brand!) this skirt went right back to the store. If the design and color had worked, I would have paid the price as this quality lasts forever.
