Where do I look? I'd like a good fit, not too short, not thin fabric. Surely there must be loads but I'm not sure where to start.

J crew no2 pencil skirt in double serge wool. Amazing fit and lovely fabric. Size down - I'm a 12 and wear a 2 (fitted). www.jcrew.com/uk/womens_category/skirts/pencil/PRDOVR~02676/02676.jsp#
You're welcome grin

Whistles and H&M have been my favourites, or VW Anglomania if you're spending more.

Second maybemyrtle with J crew. If you're pear shaped it will be a great fit. Interestingly I wear a 2 as well but would say I'm a UK10 - waist 28" and hips/bum 39"ish.

Is it proper tight though. I hate those ones that flap at the bottom

You've convinced me, the crew one it is, but now I'm all confused about the sizes. I'm a 12/14 what do you think I should go for?

I've just bought the quilted Hush one with zips which is really flattering and a lovely midi length and no muffin top. Highly recommend. Also got a more classic pencil skirt from And Other Stories a while ago which looks brand new still.

Are you sure about the size 2 in the J Crew skirt if you are normally a size 12? A size 12 is an 8 in American sizing, which means that you'd be ordering three sizes down. The equivalent of UK size 6.

Mitford, try a 6 for starters, returns are easy though so you could order a couple to try?

Nettle, yes. That's why I also said to size down.

Blair, we are hip twins. My waist is bigger than yours though thanks Santa.

Jack, it has give but isn't stretchy so it's not skin tight. It doesn't do that flarey thing at the bottom though. You should try it!
