Women's Plus Size Gored Washable Wool Skirt
I wear an 18 or a 1X, and the Lands End 18W turns out to be way big in the waist for me, but I liked this skirt so much I took it to the tailor and had it fitted. Well worth the trouble - the fabric stays nice and smooth, the fit is flattering and I expect to use the dark charcoal with hundreds of outfits. I'm wearing it today with black turtleneck and black boots.
I'm thinking about whether I should get it in another color as well.
The product description leaves out a nice feature, which is that there is no waistband. I think this is called a Hollywood waist. It means that there isn't a horizontal strip of fabric to grip you around the waist; instead, the skirt rests on whatever part of you begins to flare out just below your waist. This is nice if you don't like to be gripped around any chub you might have, because you are, ya know, a plus size.

Comfortable Skirt that goes with Jacket
The skirt is really nice and comfortable. It hits mid calf (I'm 5'6'') and will look great boots. I found the size 20 was perfect even though the pants and jacket were 22. This is a classic that will last a long time. I bought it in the deep burgundy heather. It's quite dark but is a nice change from navy, grey or black.
