I felt very Jackie O

This skirt mostly fits as expected, though I thought it was the teeniest bit wide in the waist. The slit in the back is not too high. Unlike most pencil skirts, it is so comfortable to move in, sit in, and the fabric presses flat against your tummy. You need a shirt that is light and fitted to go with it. Wearing a body suit with it would make it even sexier for a night out.

Accentuated small waist line

Loved this skirt, I'm between a medium and large so the waist was too big on me, I'll try a medium next time, but it was very flattering. Will rent again!

Comfortable midi skirt

Stretchy comfortable skirt. The high waist adds something a little extra. Reduced from 5 stars just because the boning on the side did jut out a bit and I had to fiddle with the zipper each time.

Perfect work skirt

This skirt is a great work skirt. I was able to wear it so many different ways for different conferences and meetings I had over the month of October. The fabric is great for travel because it doesn't wrinkle. I was tempted to buy but ultimately didn't because the stays in the side get a little uncomfortable after a long day.

Perfectly high waisted

This is a great skirt - love the high waist and the stretchy fabric. I wanted to buy this so badly, but the zipper on the one I got was touchy. I will rent this one again!

Slit for days

Cute the slit in the back was a little long. I wore once but I was uncomfortable with how much back leg was being shown in a professional setting.

Flattering skirt not comfortable

If you have a basic black pencil skirt you don't need to rent this. Yes it's flattering but so are my other black pencil skirts Nothing really special and I think this is not as comfortable

Perfect high waist

Loved this classic back high waist. Wore it for a family Xmas dinner with a DVF blouse and fun heels. Would have considering purchasing as a staple but the boning was starting to become exposed and stuck into my right side. Dealt with it for a night but not worth purchasing.

Loved this skirt!

Form fitting comfort is the best way to describe this skirt. Hugged all of my curves and recd tons of compliments. One issue, there is wire boning that can poke you - may not want to rent for an event where you will be seated more than standing.

So sad the skirt didn't work.

This skirt looks great on the hanger. Solid fabric. But, it just did not fit me right. The boning on the sides stuck out, not sure if I don't have enough hips or what was happening. Maybe with the right body type it would work, just not my frame.

Form fitting and high waisted pencil skirt

Cute. Perfect for work or a job interview. You can also wear it out with a cute top and some heels. You really can dress it up or down.

Right cut wrong boning

Loved the cut, nice heavy material. However there is boning to help smooth the sides which just is never going to be anything resembling comfortable

Great skirt!

Very nice, thick fabric. I don't find the boning annoying as others have found. I think I might rent this again but size down to see how it fits. I find the skirt to be very flattering and slimming. The slit in the back is a bit higher than other skirts, but the length is long enough that I didn't find it obscene or inappropriate. Would consider buying this skirt.

I opted to not wear it

Lovely fabric and well made but it was just too tight for me to be comfortable all day. It's not my normal style so I wanted to try it but I'll stick with less form-fitting skirts. Nice item though!

Stylist Review

I love this form fitting pencil skirt by Amanda Uprichard. Running true to size with little stretch, I recommend wearing one size up for your back up size. The style is fitted throughout the skirt. The skirt is very fitted at the waist and hips. At 5'9, the skirt hits tea length on me. Pair with sneakers for a cool, city chic look.

A very flattering fit and comfortable fabric. Structure has some issues.

This would have been a slam dunk, except that there is boning in the sides that kept poking into my thighs when I would sit. That's not a good feature for a business skirt!

Did not end up wearing, but not through choice. I intended it for a business trip.

Loved the high-waisted style here! Fun cut, and fit me very well (hourglass figure, 145-lb, 5'5"). Unfortunately just not better than the other black skirt I already owned, ended up taking it instead.

Didn't love this skirt and did not wear it,

It is form fitting but not structured enough to conceal any lumps or bumps. It also has a kind of boning on the sides the seemed awkward.

Loved it for a rental, but not the perfect pencil skirt

My first comment about this skirt is that the fit of the waist is extremely unusual – as it appears on the model in the picture, it is beyond high-waisted, going several inches above the natural waist to sit just about at the bottom of your bra (I’m medium height and long waisted). The tailoring and especially the boning do not really allow it to be worn lower on the waist nor folded down or anything to adjust this. As a result, it really is not possible to wear anything tucked into this skirt for anything like a traditional look. That said, it’s the perfect skirt for wearing shorter, tight-fitting sweaters or shirts with, and I found I actually had quite a few of those. Other fit notes: the skirt is quite stretchy and smooth (very nice material), it was snug on me but I would say true to size. The length is slightly longer than I would prefer – if I bought it, I would probably have it hemmed a little as it was to the bottom of my knee. The slit in the back as some others have noted is fairly high, but I thought it was perfectly fine with tights (might have felt more revealing with bare legs but it’s winter) Generally it just works best for conservative officewear and wasn’t as versatile as I would want out of a pencil skirt to buy. But I enjoyed wearing it as a rental and if I worked in a more corporate office I think this would be a great staple.

N/A — I didn't end up wearing it.

I liked the overall size and fit, but the boning was a deal-breaker — it ended up sticking out just below my waist, in a way that I would have constantly been trying to correct. It's possible that I wouldn't have had the same problem with a size down, something truly skin-tight. I didn't end up wearing it.

Good, simple, high-waisted workhorse

I rented this as a backup for a black minidress I'd selected for a party, and the dress fit. This is a solid, good weight black skirt. The high waist is an interesting detail, but not one I need in my closet today. The high waist would be amazing with a crop or bra top for a party/going out, or with a fitted blouse tucked in for work.

Order your usual size

I usually wear a 4 which was unavailable, so since I'm sometimes in-between 4-6, I ordered a M. DO NOT order above your size in this skirt. The high waist has boning which has to fit a certain way, if it is too large it doesn't sit correctly on the waist and the boning actually juts out at the sides. It's not a bad skirt, my fault for ordering up.
