Women’s Back Beauty™ Skort is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Columbia Skorts! I just received this skort and have not worn it yet. I tried it on and it fits perfectly. It is on the short side, so I wear mine like shorts, but it is much classier and more flattering. I already own several other skorts from Columbia and I love them. Perfect for hiking, shopping, lunch dates and casual get togethers. Great for traveling, no wrinkles. I wash on delicate and hang dry; they will hold up and look nice longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Classic I just “rediscovered” skorts this summer and now that’s all I wear. This Columbia skort is everything I want. It’s comfortable, easy to pack and I feel well dressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Skirt I loved this skirt so much that I bought two. It's great for hiking and also works great to wear out. This is one of my go to staples for summer. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Didnt work for me It is a cute skort but a little too tight on the thighs for me. A larger size would have resulted in the waist being too big. For reference, I am 5'6", 130 lbs and purchased the small.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great skort but runs large in waist Love this skort but I definitely feel like it runs large in the waist (I would say I don't much of a waist - I'm fairly straight up and down - and while this fits well in butt, the waist gaps). For reference: 5'10" 150 lbs and ordered size M.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyday Skirt I love this skirt! I was very impressed when I received it in the mail and love the fabric that it is made from. Lightweight and cool, it is perfect for golfing and fishing, but I actually prefer to wear it just for everyday things because it is so comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits very well The waistband is pretty firm and wide. I'm going to Greece, so it would be a little hot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skirt of my dreams Oh my gosh, this is everything I've ever wanted in a skirt. Great fit (5' 5", 130 lbs, Small is perfect), super comfy and functional, and cute! Only wish it came in many different colors -- I'd nab them all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit like BB pants. Love my Back Beauty boot cut and straight leg. So disappointed that this BB item doesn't fit me in any size. Large much bigger at waist and hip than pants. Medium fits at waist but tight through hip. Unfortunately Both sizes will have to go back Seems a nice product if you can find a size to fit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lays oddly This was a cute skirt, but for some reason on me it just didn't work. The size S was huge around the waist -- if I lost one or two pounds, I think it would slip off! But the XS was a little too tight around the butt. Either the pocket or the overall construction on both sizes did something to the front of the skirt that just didn't allow it to fall flat and stay that way. It had a kind of off-kilter ripple in it near the pocket, and would be bunched up in weird ways after I moved my body. I'd love to see Columbia offer a UPF50 black skirt just like this (that is, more dressed up than their other options), but maybe without the pocket (or with a small inner pocket) or whatever the change is that needs to happen to get the sizing right and the fabric to lay smoothly and look presentable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from From work to play and everything in between. Classy enough to wear to the office, yet comfortable enough to wear outdoors. Field tested against a teething puppy and survived with out a snag.
