Plus Flared Hem Long Skirt
Oh dear, not good!
Sorry to say, this was disappointing and I am being polite. I found the fabric poor and the fit even worse, very shapeless. Not often I feel so negative, but this really was a poor effort, not at all like I usually find M and S clothing.

Flattering and non-frumpy
At last a plus-size skirt that is flattering and non-frumpy.
Why have skirts been such a problem the last few years?
Frumpy eye-line, odd colours, nasty fabric. If trousers can come in nice, imaginative fabrics, why not skirts?
This skirt, on the other hand, is a really great shape.
Longer-line pencil skirts are glam and I'd like to see this shape done in a range of fabrics and colours. Also, I'm not really a 'plus' size (by the M&S definition) but fortunately it is a stretchy fabric and so the size 20 worked ok on me - could it be done in smaller sizes too?
I realise I have spent more time ranting than complimenting M&S on this attractive product but it goes to show how unusual it is to find a skirt that I like....

Style for size 20+
I love this skirt and find it very flattering.
It isn't at all flared as the description, more narrow like a pencil skirt. On me at a size 20 5ft 5" it is maxi length and looks lovely with a long floaty camisole teamed with strappy flats and a long pendent for a simple summer look.
Would love it in a heavier fabric for winter!!

I ordered this skirt from the picture and not the description as the two didn't match. Thankfully it was the skirt from the picture and it does not have a flared hem. In fact it narrows down like a long pencil skirt and is very flattering. The material is quite fine and can show up a few lumps and bumps but the shape is so good I am prepared to overlook this and remedy it with some 'hold it all in' knickers! . If the M&S designers/buyers read this then I would be delighted to pay extra to have this skirt in a heavier and more robust fabric. For now though I am enyoying wearing this one in the summer.
