Women's Just Right™ Skort is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 78.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering Fit I love this skort! The fit is true to size, and very flattering. At 5'2", I found the length appropriate for my age, but still not too long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from almost perfect skort Right length. Inner shorts could be a little longer. Fabric stretches perfect with action. Pocket functions well. Snap could be placed higher to avoid fabric curling over. I plan to buy another when I can get my hands on a black skort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skort for golfing Light sturdy fabric runs true to size . I sometimes have to get a 14 even though I measure a 12. With this product the 12 fits fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite skirt This is my favorite skirt for travel, work, and everyday life. The pocket on the left front thigh is my go-to spot for my cell phone, room key, or money while on holidays. It has a little bit of stretch to it that makes it super comfy to move in, as well as repelling water (for those wet rides on holidays!) I'm 5'7, 160 lb (a bit curvy on the bottom half), and the 12-14 fits perfect, with the drawstring waist is perfect to cinch it up just a touch when needed. You can dress it up a bit for work, or keep it simple. I now have three of these skirts now and will continue to purchase them as different colors become available!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Draw string functional but awkward Loved the fit, style, and longer length of this skort. However, the draw string, although functional, was quite awkward. If left untied it hung down to below the skirt bottom. If tied it made a weird bump in the front. I've tried on about 20 skort this summer, and this one would have been "it," if not for that string. If the waist hadn't fit a bit big, I would have just cut out the strings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable Skort I do love this Skort. It is a little large in the waist for me. The material is very comfortable. I liked my first one so much I reordered it in another color.
Date published: 2017-07-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great skort I purchased the black skort as I already have one in gray. I bought the black because I love the gray one so much. I wore it constantly on a trip last year and it held up beautifully and washed up great. I am looking forward to taking the black skort on a similar trip this year. I think the black color will enable me to "dress" it up a bit depending on what top I wear. Buy one before they are gone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite skort!! I love that this skort can go from very causal to office attire. Need to get this in the other colors available.
Date published: 2017-06-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute but snug I purchased 2 items in the Just Right collection to use on trail and in more formal settings. This skort is cute and not too short, even for someone a bit older like me. The shorts underneath are stretchy and fit tightly. Unfortunately, the skirt runs rather small. Oddly, the pants in this same collection ran large. Both items are going back.
Date published: 2017-06-07
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Might work for you I had high hopes for this skort but it just didn't work for me. The short and skirt are joined by the zipper which caused the skirt portioned to bunch up in front. Made it look like it was gathered at the crotch. Perhaps I hust need a larger size or it may just be made for a taller person.
Date published: 2017-03-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skort Quality I have worn these Shorts for years and they are so very comfortable and durable. I buy a size larger than I normally wear, to get a longer skirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the perfect skort My only regret is that it does not come in other colors..like navy, white

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute! This is the first skort that I have purchased from Columbia. I ordered a 6 and it fit true to size. I am 5'4" tall, and weigh 127lbs. I wore it for Christmas with tights and a red sweater. It has a lot of stretch and is very comfortable! I golf and travel a lot, this will be a great addition to my travel attire!
Date published: 2017-01-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect skort I read the previous reviews of how it runs a little small and went up one size and it fits perfectly. Can't wait until summer, comfortable and functional for any activity while looking well put together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Versatile and Perfect Skirt I have never loved a garment so much! The fit is perfect...love the little pocket. I will hike in this skirt, change my shoes and then go to the office, couldn't be better!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Travel Skirt Love this skirt. I brought it on a summer trip to Europe. Super comfortable and flattering. Only problem was was that the shorts ride up which is disappointing but it never felt uncomfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice skort This skort is well made and it does run a bit snug and I am hoping it will stretch out a bit while wearing it. If you have some muffin top then I would suggest you go up a size. I got the black color and it is opaque; very light weight and very comfy. The short length is 17" and the attached shorts underneath are shorter and do not ride up and do not stick out from under the skirt. I really wish Columbia would write the lengths (how many inches long) their skorts, shirts, and dresses are as it would take the guess work and hassle out when ordering. Can be dressed up alittle or down. This skort is less expensive than the LL Bean brand skorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go to item Love this skort. Great for traveling, shopping, outdoor activities. Cool comfortable, non-binding and the perfect length for my over 60 legs. I can count on Columbia to carry my size and fit. Just wish this came in khaki color! I love this skort so much that I have 2 in black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style This skort was everything I hoped for. The fabric was soft, the length was as long as I wanted. I was very happy with this skort. I wanted to get more but I already purchased the two colors that were available. Great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy, stylish, practical - what more could I want! This cute skort is perfect when I want the convenience of wearing shorts, but desire a little dressier appearance. I find it very comfortable - stretchy in all the right places. The fabric is soft, yet strong and lays nicely. Great fit. Great skort! I could live in it all summer. I guess I should buy another one in a different color... :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just right skort I know the sizes run a little small so the skort fit just right for me. Theskort is perfect for all activities, biking, golfing and looks great at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Woman's skort I bought two of these skirts and absolutely love them. They fit well and are super comfortable. At first I wondered if the shorts underneath would be too hot or cumbersome. They are neither. Great to wear on the golf course,bike or trail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this skirt. I am 5 foot tall and 115 lbs and I got a size 6. It is a little big but very comfortable. I have worn it for work and camping. This skirt is great for both.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable and versatile I am 60 and and found these skorts to be not only comfortable to wear, but also stylish and suitable for any age group. I wore them on a very hot day being outside all day and loved them. They didn't show any wrinkles. They are sporty for casual wear but yet can be dressed up with a nice top. I will wear this to work as a teacher - perfect for getting on the floor with young kids. I would love to buy more in different colors if they were available. I'm between a size 10-12 and went with the size 12. It fits great. It has a pull waist cord if I should decide to get down to a true size 10. If you're trying to decide between 2 sizes I would go with the larger. I will get a lot of use from these skorts and definitely recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect casual skort I love this skort and have two of them now. The length is perfect for me because I don't like too short skorts (5'1", 115 lbs). I wear this skirt for casual days and for hiking. As a hiking skort it's quick drying and very breathable. I don't get too hot when wearing it and it doesn't bunch up or feel too tight in areas. The only thing I would improve is adding some rubber grippers (like on bike shorts) to keep the inner short from riding up when hiking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from go to casual summer wear This is the perfect piece! A bit dressier than shorts, lightweight, comfortable and quick dry. Camping or the grocery store, works for me- I ordered up a size for fit- waistband is adjustable.
Date published: 2016-07-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! The skirt runs a little tighter than my other Columbia skorts but this wasn't a problem for me as I'm 5'1" and about 120 lbs. It's a "to go" everywhere skort.
Date published: 2016-07-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Skort, Runs Super Small Thank you for everyone who wrote reviews about the Skort running small. I ordered it 2 sizes larger than I might have otherwise & it fit perfectly. I love it so much I am ordering more. This is, to me, the perfect combination skirt/short. I am in love with this Columbia product. Well done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chic and practical I live in NW Portland, at the base of Washington Park. We walk everywhere. Often we will hike up to the rose garden, and then walk downtown for a movie. The skirt is a perfect skirt to keep casual or throw a sweater or wrap on and dress it up! I bought all three colors.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from fit I usually wear 6 or an 8. I ordered an 8 because you said it fit slightly smaller. It fit much smaller!
Date published: 2016-04-29
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Weird waistline I specifically ordered this skort because it has a drawstring waist. I'm pretty thin, and it seems like everything is too big in the waist for me. The problem is the two points of the drawstring are several inches apart, not close together where it buttons as you would expect. So if you need to draw it up to tighten the waist, it pouches out in the front. Plus the string cut rather uncomfortably into the abdomen. Major design flaw to me, I sent it back. Also note, I usually wear a size 4 but ordered a 6 based on other reviews that it ran small. It does. Even the 6 was rather snug through the derriere, with the waist being overall bigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 'JUST RIGHT SKORT' I haven't had a chance to wear this skort yet because it is still winter; however, I love it. It is dressier looking and feels so comfortable on. I can't wait to wear it as I walk the El Camino in northern Spain this September. The quality is very good and the sizing is perfect.
Date published: 2016-03-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gem of a skort! Unlike the latest Armadale design with its quirky metal closures that pull the fabric, this gem of a skort has one front metal snap and zipper that stays put. The fit for me (size 12) is comfortable and true to size. The length, which is above the knee, and cut is appropriate for the office and can be dressed up or down for weekends. I have the black and will be buying the other colors but would love it in navy, white and pastels.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality skort I was looking for a skort, and this one is great. It's hard to find skorts this season that aren't super short or have some weird design - I'm a very young 40, but I haven't worn mini skirts since the 90's. This is a little shorter than I'd like (I'm 5'6" and 130# and it hits about 2" above my knee when standing) but since there are shorts attached I haven't gotten very self conscious about it. The fabric is super forgiving, resists stains, and is lightweight and dries quickly. Good for physical activities or just running around town.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased with this skort. Comfortable, great length, can wear for work (business casual) or play. Runs small, especially compared to Columbia Just Right Pants, which I also love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Skort I love this skort! The quality is great, the material will launder very well. It is just what I was looking for! I used the size chart associated with the skort. Taking my measurements and comparing them with the chart gave me a very good fit. I recommend doing this as the resulting size is not what I usually get. This is an excellent alternative to shorts and I will take them on an upcoming trip to Europe. Shirts look good tucked in as well as left out. I bought the black and there is a dark gray. I wish Columbia made them in other colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skort Columbia as gotten it right on so much of their womens active wear, this is another example! I get compliments frequently.
Date published: 2015-07-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable skort These skorts are designed well and fit well. The only reason for the 4-star rating is the shorts ride up on the inner thighs all the time! Why not make the shorts under the cute skirt more like running or yoga shorts so they stay up better?? If you did, I would buy more and recommend them to family/friends more. Thank you for your time.
Date published: 2015-07-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy Skort This versatile skort is perfect for golfing, side zip pocket holds balls comfortably. I usually wear a size 8 but the 10 fits fine, with just a little room. In general, it's hard not to use it as daily go-to apparel, please make it available in more colors!
Date published: 2015-07-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit! Went ahead and purchased next size up since reviews said product runs a little small and it is the perfect fit and look! Nice, light weight material. It's the skirt I have been looking for all summer! Tried to go back and order in different color but they were all out :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best skort ever This is my favorite skirt I have ever ownedI I love it so much I bought a second black one. Perfect for golf or to just wear around. I love how light weight it is! Great for packing!
Date published: 2015-07-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One great skort! This is an extremely comfortable skort. The material is soft and stretchy and the length is just right for me - a little longer than some skorts, but it may not be right for those who prefer their skorts very short. The shorts lining is light and soft and does not ride up. The material is stretchy so in my size, the waist is probably larger than I'd like but you can use the internal drawstring to tighten things up if necessary. However, since I'm losing some weight, I've ordered another in the next size down as well. Still can wear both comfortably.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! This is a great skirt. Very comfortable. Not too short. Nice stretchy material. I highly recommend it. I bought both colors and glad I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect product I prefer to wear shorts to any other type of clothing. This garment moves with your body. I am a very active, petite, 58- yr old woman. I took this skort to Scandinavia & wore it everywhere. By changing accessories, shoes, & shirts, it was worn in a church service, out to a classy restaurant, in museums, & shopping. I went jogging, and swam in it in ocean beaches. I went online to get another and was terribly disappointed in the color selection! Where is khaki, navy, red, or some other colors!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I love this skirt! I bought it for walking in the summer months. I hate wearing shorts at my age. I'm over weight so shorts have a tendency to creep up in the inside of my thighs. I'm constantly pulling them down. The skirt is a modest length. I can wear it to the office as well as while exercising and still not expose my veiny & cellulite thighs! Like many others, I wish it came in more colors. I would buy them all!
