  • review score 5 Steff on 28 September 2015
    Bought this at 21 weeks as all my other work clothes had become quite uncomfortable. It's still a it big but I'm sure I'll grow into it. The material is a bit thicker so perfect for autumn. The skirt comes down just below my knee (I'm 5.4 and ordered a size 6) which makes it a bit difficult to walk longer distanced with (I walk to work every day) but it's completely fine for walking around in at work. Would definitely recommend - this is the only maternity work skirt that fitted me and that's not really short or clingy.
  • review score 5 Jennie on 16 September 2015
    Having read previous reviews I am usually a 12 and ordered a 10 as previous reviews noted the large sizing. It fit perfectly and so flattering and comfortable - wish they did this skirt in more colours! A must have for the office
  • review score 5 andrea Kay on 07 September 2015
    I was worried about what I would wear for work but this skirt has been a staple in my wardrobe since I was 16 weeks. I was a size 10 pregnancy so bought the size 10 and it fit perfectly. I've since bought the size 12 at 28 weeks as I've put 2 stone on and again it fits perfectly. Very smart in the office to wear with blouses. Knee length too. A must buy! Don't hesitate.
  • review score 5 Julia on 20 August 2015
    Perfect skirt for work. Prior to buying this I bought 6 or 7 skirts online all which were unsuitable, either too stretchy and gave no support, or too stiff and didn't look like they would fit for long. This skirt has stretch in all the right places and lined too. I can see myself wearing it all the time. I do agree with the reviews on here though, the sizing is a little large so thanks to the reviews on here I purchased a size smaller and it fits perfectly. Definitely recommend!
  • review score 5 Milz on 30 June 2015
    Brilliant skirt that forms the 'base' of my pregnancy wardrobe. bought in two sizes for 1st and last part of the pregnancy, wear it nearly every day!
  • review score 4 Jo on 16 June 2015
    Great, smart skirt.
    The skirt is oversize by 1 or 2 sizes.
  • review score 4 Emma on 23 April 2015
    A smart and comfortable pencil skirt. The sizing is generous. I usually buy size 10 but based on other reviews about sizing I went for a size 8. Initially I even thought size 8 was too big but having adjusted the waistband at the sides it fits fine and I still have 3 months to go so can grow into it!
  • review score 4 Becki Sharp on 13 April 2015
    Following my previous experience buying my normal size in some maternity work trousers (from New Look) and them being way too small I went up a size for this skirt and have found it too big! I take from this that the skirt is actually true to size which is great. I've used the elastic bit on the inside to tighten it up so it's still very much functional. The skirt is very comfy with a nice soft jersey part on the top and still professional looking from the hips down. I found it to be a little on the long size - the model has the skirt well clear of her knees where mine falls well below. I am a bit on the short size but I think the model must be very tall to get it sitting at that length - just something to bear in mind.

    I rate this 4/5 stars!
  • review score 4 Jolande on 04 April 2015
    Great skirt, normal size 12 too big for me though
  • review score 4 Ksmeats on 21 January 2015
    Lovely smart skirt. Very big size (as with all JoJo stuff) had to reorder a smaller size which fits much better but still plenty of room for bump growth. Has waist adjusters so have it pulled in at the minute.
    Agree with other reviews about the lining requiring a split as some difficulty on stairs and when pulling skirt up and down the lining and skirt don't pull down together easily.
  • review score 4 Shona on 03 December 2014
    Very comfortable skirt although a little big... May be worth going down a size if you're on the border of 2 sizes.
    The panel at the back means it's not really a pencil skirt but smart enough for formal work wear none the same.
  • review score 4 Helen on 26 November 2014
    Having ordered and returned a number of work skirts from other companies, I was so pleased when this one arrived as it's such nice quality. I'm 5' 6" and 20 weeks pregnant, and whilst it fits it's slightly on the long side but is fine with heels. After washing its a bit difficult to get the creases out but this can't really be seen. As with other reviews the sizing is bigger than normal so I would recommend to order a smaller size. Overall the best work skirt out there.
  • review score 5 EJ on 17 October 2014
    Great fit - as always with JMB, comes up slightly large so consider buying a size smaller. So comfy over bump (am 7 months pg now). Good length and lining - and looks smart - such a difference from the cheap and nasty fabric that you find in other shops. Really recommend.
  • review score 2 Alex on 03 October 2014
    Badly designed - whilst the skirt has a split at the back, the lining doesn't, so you can only take very small steps and can't climb any stairs. Otherwise very comfortable. A great skirt, if you don't need to walk anywhere.
  • review score 5 H on 12 September 2014
    Great skirt, really comfy and perfect for the office.
  • review score 5 Katherine on 15 July 2014
    This is a great wardrobe essential for work. The skirt is very comfortable and smart. It is lined and not clingy like other maternity pencil skirts I tried. It is adjustable so you can wear throughout your pregnancy. I liked it so much I ordered one in grey. Highly recommend.
  • review score 5 Laura on 04 July 2014
    Great fit, I'm 22 weeks pregnant and definitely some room for me to grow. Ideal for work.
  • review score 3 Amy on 29 April 2014
    Nice fit.
    The stretchy bump panel comes down quite low so would require a long top to be worn.
  • review score 0 Kat on 17 April 2014
    Very comfortable skirt but the sizing is very big! I bought a size 12 which is my usual UK size in skirts but had to alter the waist to prevent it from falling down. Still very pleased with the purchase though - my most comfortable piece of maternity work clothing!
  • review score 0 Katherine on 09 April 2014
    Excellent quality. A little big but has adjustable waist so have adjusted it to fit now and will let it out as my bump grows!
  • review score 0 H A Evans on 17 March 2014
    Perfect for work - high quality, not clingy, very flattering and plenty of room for the bump. Highly recommended!
  • review score 0 PP on 14 March 2014
    I really struggled finding a grey work skirt and thought this would be perfect. Its very very generous for its size!!! I ordered it for next day delivery and it arrived 5 days after my chosen date. Customer Service rep was not terribly concerned about this blunder when i rang the next day chasing my skirt and she said the best they could do was send it out by the following Monday (4 days later).In my opinion this service and the fact the skirt is huge will make me stay clear of JoJo in the future :( !
  • review score 0 T Hewitt on 04 March 2014
    Does the job perfectly! Looked high and low for an over the bump work skirt and this is the best I've found as the fabric doesn't look cheap and the skirt is lined too.

    Normally wear a size 16 and ordered the same and the fit is spot on. Handy adjustable tapes on the over the bump bit means skirt will see me all the way through from now (18w) to the end.
  • review score 0 Joanne Wells on 21 February 2014
    Prompt delivery and a great work staple. Bought at 7 months pregnancy in my usual size and fits well, is very comfortable and smart.
  • review score 0 Louise Taw on 14 February 2014
    Arrived quickly, very comfy, I bought my normally size and it fits perfectly. Great for work and dinners out. Highly recommend, great buy!
  • review score 0 Ann Isenberg on 02 December 2013
    Good quality, ideal for growing bumps, comfortable and looks smart.
  • review score 0 C Fisken on 15 November 2013
    It didn't fit right, I'm petite and now wear size 8 trousers/ skirts, however I would have needed to make too many alterations for the skirt to look good on me.
  • review score 0 Jo Jones on 09 November 2013
    Excellent skirt that is perfect for work wear. I'm 5'3" and the skirt is a great length on me. I'm currently 16 weeks pregnant and it fit me very comfortably. I hope it will continue to do so over the forthcoming weeks and months.
  • review score 0 Wotskk on 08 November 2013
    Sizing comes up very large and material very poor quality. Returned item.
  • review score 0 1st time Mum on 14 October 2013
    Excellent work skirt. I usually wear a 10-12 in other high street stores - this was sized generously and I could probably have got away with the 8.
    Good quality fabric - just regret I won't be able to pair it with super high heels for much longer!
  • review score 0 Cat on 09 October 2013
    I've been really impressed with this skirt - it's lined and the fabric is a decent weight which makes it really comfortable and look like a normal office skirt. Everything else I found on the high street and that I ordered online was thin jersey which I don't think is smart enough for the office, and I worry about VPL!!
  • review score 0 Cath on 05 October 2013
    Best single item I have bought in the way of maternity wear. Super comfy and great for work. Great shape and nice not to have more loose, jersey items with little shape. can't recommend it enough
  • review score 0 Jennifer on 11 September 2013
    This is a perfect skirt for work. I agree with others that it is generously sized so definitely opt for a size smaller than the size guide suggests. The waistband is elasticated with button adjustments so you can pull it in and gradually let it out as you need to, I can see this lasting me through to full term.
  • review score 0 Lucille Robins on 06 September 2013
    What a wonderful skirt, it is just the most perfect fit and a perfect uniform item for office wear.
  • review score 0 pippa on 23 August 2013
    Looks great. Is rather large on me at 6 months, but will not fall down. Don't think it's suitable for earlier than that though.
  • review score 0 Georgina on 15 July 2013
    I bought this to wear as a work skirt with an existing plain black suit jacket and it has been useful so far. I ordered my usual size 16 and found that to be a good fit. The band is very stretchy, I am approx 30 weeks and it still has room for growing! I am just over 5' 8" and I have worn the band slightly lower than was probably intended so that the skirt sits comfortably at my knee length.
  • review score 0 F Lennard on 28 June 2013
    Great versatile work skirt, although could do with a slit at the back, to make it easier to walk in if you're petite (5ft 3") as it falls below the knee.
  • review score 0 Alison on 29 May 2013
    Great buy, fits perfectly and ideal for work. Definitely recommend this product to others
  • review score 0 Claire on 24 May 2013
    Great skirt. One of the best maternity items I found. I am normally a size8 but got a 6 based on other comments. Fits perfectly.
  • review score 0 Yvonne on 19 May 2013
    Great product! Well made, very comfortable. Agree with the previous comments on generous sizing. I'm 4 and a half months just now and fits very well, don't think it'll stretch out for full term but ill definitely get another month or two at work out of it.
  • review score 0 VEmmerson on 16 May 2013
    Great skirt, the material is of good quality and fully lined, its already my work staple. The sizes are quite generous so I had to buy a size smaller than my usual (not a bad feeling when your pregnant!)
  • review score 0 Gillian Madden on 16 May 2013
    This is such a comfortable skirt, the sizing is quite back so i had to order a size smaller than usual but a great buy, fantastic for work.
  • review score 0 Sarah on 03 May 2013
    This skirt is comfortable and great for work. The sizing is a bit strange though as I am usually a size 12 and had to try on a few before buying a size 8 that is still a bit big at 5 months.
  • review score 0 Anna Clark on 30 April 2013
    Perfect fit, love it, very smart for office, super comfortable.
  • review score 0 Penny on 23 April 2013
    This is nothing fancy, but what do you expect from a black pencil skirt? Its a good basic, my only criticism would be that it's too long for me (I am around 5 foot 2) so I've had to take up the hem by about three inches. Probably more suitable for a taller woman.
  • review score 0 jane on 23 April 2013
    excellent quality. really satisfied and looks great on.
  • review score 0 Sian on 20 April 2013
    Well fitting and nice material. Suitable for work
  • review score 0 Marta on 13 April 2013
    Nice skirt, wish it had a zip in the back as skirt is a little bit narrow
  • review score 0 Claire on 03 April 2013
    This was the first item of work wear I bought as my pre-pregnancy clothes were getting tight. The fabric is good quality and the skirt is a nice length. As said in other reviews the sizing is quite generous.
  • review score 0 Hannah on 29 March 2013
    I love this skirt. It is the first item of maternity work wear I have bought that replicates my pre-pregnancy wardrobe and means I can dress like 'me' but with a bump. I am usually a size 10-12 but afer reading other reviews I bought the 10, which fits perfectly and feels like I have plenty of room to grow (I'm 20 weeks). Definitely recommended.
  • review score 0 Gitta on 28 March 2013
    Gorgeous and comfortable! Perfect for when you want to look good
  • review score 0 Kate on 27 March 2013
    I have been very pleased with the pencil skirt as it is nicely made and fully lined, unlike a lot of others I have looked at which are only tube skirts.

    I am a size 8 and found the size 8 skirt to be too bid but the 6 (available on the website only, not is shops) fits really well. So I'd recommend trying a size smaller than you normally have.
  • review score 0 H on 20 March 2013
    This skirt arrived promptly, within two days of ordering. Be ware... The sizing is very generous!
  • review score 0 Midori on 01 March 2013
    This skirt is fabulous. I have been struggling to find clothes to wear to work in my current stage (not big enough for proper maternity clothes/dresses but too big for my normal clothes) and this has solved my problem. The adjustable waistband means that I have been able to make the skirt fit nicely and it is also very flattering. Getting dressed in the morning is alot easier now!!
  • review score 0 Fran Fieldhouse on 21 January 2013
    Nice fit and glamorous for work. Not too maternity-ish looking
  • review score 0 claire on 20 January 2013
    Fantastic black skirt looks great with a suit. Spent ages looking for this. The size is big so buy your pre maternity size. I am only 20 weeks and the bump is still too large but I am sure I will grow into it soon.
  • review score 0 Rebecca Smith on 18 January 2013
    This is a great skirt and perfect for work. It is a good fit and would recommend buying your pre-pregnancy size. It is verycomfortable and fits nicely over my bump.
  • review score 0 Anna Page on 31 December 2012
    This is a must for anyone who needs to be smart work or pleasure. It is so comfortable and washes without loosing shape or colour. Can grow with your pregnancy due to adjustable.waist band.

    Great all round black skirt for the office, very comfortable
  • review score 0 Dawn on 04 December 2012
    I am very happy with the skirt. The fabric makes a comfortbale secure wear. The size is generous, with plenty of room from me to grow (currently 25 weeks)
  • review score 0 Louisa on 26 November 2012
    Very smart and comfy. 20 weeks currently and plenty of room to grow into skirt but doesn't look too big at the moment. Sizing definitely generous. I ordered size 8 based on previous reviews when I'm normally a 10 pre pregnancy. Definitely the right decision
  • review score 0 Lou on 21 November 2012
    Really good quality - thick and comfortable. I'm only in the early stages and don't really have a bump yet but am already grateful for the comfort as I grow into it!
  • review score 0 J Simmons on 20 November 2012
    I ordered the size 12, but had to exchange for the size 10, as the skirt is really roomy. It is very comfortable and perfect for work, certainly smart enough. I have worn it non stop and can see it lasting all the way through, as it is excellent quality (lined) and washes well.
  • review score 0 S Dillon on 14 November 2012
    A great skirt for work and very pleased with the quality - I'm now much more comfortable and lots of room for when the bump grows!
  • review score 0 F Walker on 06 November 2012
    I found this skirt ideal for work - a classic pencil skirt with a good high waistband for maternity modesty! The adjustable waistband means I could have worn it from earlier in my pregnancy - made it adaptable. I ordered my pre-pregnancy size and am now 32 weeks, and have some room left, so it will certainly see my up to the start of my maternity leave.
  • review score 0 Sophie on 01 November 2012
    Quite a nice skirt. Thicker than many other 'maternity pencil skirts' that i ordered and sent back, so it looks a bit smarter for work. But the top band is a bit thick and shows under tops quite clearly so it's not as flattering as other skirts. However, very comfortable and plenty of room to grow!i'm a size 6/8 and I would fit in this if i went up 3 sizes!
  • review score 0 Nerida on 18 October 2012
    Very comfortable, brilliant for work. Although I am quite short at 5'3 and found I had to pull the skirt up quite high otherwise I would be restricted when walking. Other than that, fantastic skirt.

    Great work skirt, very comfortable and smart looking. Very pleased with the purchase.
  • review score 0 Kieransmum on 04 October 2012
    I bought this skirt to wear at work during my first pregnancy in 2010. I am now expecting baby 2 and the skirt is still as good as new - no fading and it still holds its shape. Highly recommend.
  • review score 0 O Powell on 03 October 2012
    I really love this skirt. The sizing is generous and the quality of the fabric is excellent. It is stretchy without being clingy and looks smart enough for any office whilst still maintaining comfort. The adjustable waist as well as the stretch panel means that I have a bit more growing room for the next couple of months.
  • review score 0 wendy on 03 October 2012
    Lovely skirt but really big at the hips. I am usually a 12 but needed a 10 in this .
  • review score 0 J Gregory on 27 September 2012
    v good value - nice fabric for the cost - but wish I'd ordered a smaller size (10) as quite (wide) big around the hips.
  • review score 0 Jo on 24 September 2012
    Nice skirt, good quality material, adjustable elastic in the waistband so will fit right through pregnancy. It's a very generous size so if you're between sizes opt for the smaller one!

  • review score 0 Sarah Hodgson on 19 September 2012
    Definitely one of my favourite maternity purchases so far. Very comfortable, very flattering and a great fit. I am usually a 12/14 and I found the 12 perfect with room for further growth. Thoroughly recommend!
  • review score 0 E S Baghurst on 19 September 2012
    This is one of my favourite maternity purchases. The skirt is very comfortable, good quality and a stretchy but heavy fabric and it flatters my new shape. I'm usually 14-16 and bought this in a 16 as my bump is very large and it is perfectly comfortable.
  • review score 0 Claire Martineau on 27 August 2012
    Skirt does come up big so do go for smaller size. I've worn several times and only just found the adjustable band on inside!
  • review score 0 Sue on 24 July 2012
    I'm a 12/14 and after reading reviews I went for a size 12 which was the right choice. They skirt is excellent for work, smart but very comfortable. But it does come up on the bigger side.
  • review score 0 Claire Eggleton on 04 July 2012

    It has ended up being one of my most well used maternity cloth. The skirt is simply practical, well design and doesn't crease so perfect for long days out. Definitely worth the money! Delighted with my purchase & quality of the service.

    Excellent skirt for work wear, very comfortable and plently of room for further bump growth!
  • review score 0 Helen on 23 June 2012
    Absolutely LOVE this skirt. The material's thick so you don't get that too-skimpy look you sometimes get with jersey. It's fantastic for work but I wore it to a dinner party with a silk camisole, and got several compliments. My favourite maternity purchase so far.

    This item is a lovely lined skirt perfect for work. It's comfortable and has a discretely adjustable waistband.
  • review score 0 Tracy on 22 April 2011
    This skirt is very flattering, affordable, and a perfect staple for work. Material is comfortable too. The only problem I've had with the skirt is that as my bump gets larger, I find it very uncomfortable (and near impossible) to get in and out of cars, go up stairs, etc because the skirt is quite tight and mobility is reduced due to the bump. I'm not sure it will be suitable for the last 1-2 months of pregnancy for that reason.
  • review score 0 Kate on 10 April 2011
    This is a perfect fit in my usual size, size 12. Ideal for work, worn it every day since it arrived earlier this week!! More skirts please, an A line or box pleat version of this would be fabulous!
  • review score 0 Helen on 07 February 2011
    This skirt is very nice quality and stretchy, so very comfy. The size though is very big. I ordered an 8 and I would say that this is more a 10-12 size, so looks too big over the hips and at the back. The bump band is very stretchy though so would last well into the latter stages of pregnancy.
