Are Boden skirts true to size?

I have a long flights (three flights actually) and I want to wear comfy leggings and a smartish but comfortable skirt, I am looking at eBay at the moment and some of the Boden skirts fit the bill. I am a size 12 at M&S and Next, but often 14 in other shops. Anyone knows if their sizes are similar to M&S or are they a smaller fit? Thanks!

Only have one of theirs - I am normally a 10-12 bottom and the Boden one is an 8.

As I said though - only got one skirt from there - so may just be that style/one off.

Generally I have found their sizing to be generous so I'd go by your M & S size.

I found their skirt sizing very hit and miss. Very large and huge around the waist. All the skirts I bought went straight back.

They are flattery sized so get size 12. They ten to be baggy at the waistline whichever size you get!

I think it's massively hit and miss.

Order both and send one back.

Sorry blush just saw you're on eBay.
Wouldn't bother unless really cheap

Hit and miss.

I'm an 8 in m&s but have had 10 and 12 on boden.

Make sure you get one on free returns and buy both sizes and send one back.

Yes blue cow I have just found a new one o really like and ordering both sizes. Thanks

I had to send skirt back for smaller size when I ordered so go for 12!

I've bought 3 skirts from them in the last couple of weeks and they varied slightly. One fits well, the others were fine on the waist but big on the hips. I think Boden is slightly on the generous side, similar to M&S.

Why don't you ask the seller for the garment measurements? I've sold a number of Boden skirts on Ebay and it's quite normal for buyers to ask for the measurements- across the waistband.
