Rated 1 out of 5 by KrisMS So disappointed
I saw this in the new catalog and couldn't wait to purchase it. When I tried it on, I was so disappointed. The fabric and weight of the zipper to not make for a good look on the back of the skirt. It doesn't lay flat if you have any type of backside, and is not attractive. Hopefully Jcrew tries this style again and makes it work!

Rated 1 out of 5 by M250 Loved it on the hanger, but....
I wanted this skirt to work soooo badly! It's such a chic looking skirt. Perfect for work, but still edgy and cool due to the wetsuit-like fabric and silver zipper up the back. I tried it on in store and from the front, it looked great! Hugged all my curves perfectly (for reference, I'm a size 2, hourglass shape, and tried the XS). HOWEVER, from the back this skirt was a nightmare!!! The zipper puckered and stuck out right on my rear and make me look slightly deformed. Not a good look. Needless to say, I did not purchase. FYI- the skirt hit me right at the belly button so it was a nice high rise and hit above my knee. I zippered the bottom zipper up slightly to give a sexy slit.

This skirt is so soft and comfortable, but I see what other reviewers mean about the back zipper "pooch". I found if you wear it lower on the hips, below the navel, it re-positions the zipper and eliminates the "pooch" problem. It is so soft and comfy and nice material, I am keeping them (I got them in both colors!)

I ordered a size smaller than usual to get the right fit, and despite other unfavorable reviews, I really like this skirt! It's very comfortable, and with proper ironing, there were no issues with the zipper!

Rated 1 out of 5 by atwest great in theory, not so well executed
I read the other reviews regarding the issues with the zipper; hoping they were wrong, I took a gamble and purchased the skirt at the sale price. Sadly, the other reviewers were right on: the zipper in the back does not lay flat. It gaps and puckers terribly, unfortunately. A shame, since the concept was great and the material really cool.
