I'm short and I don't have the longest or skinniest legs in the world, so above the knee is the most flattering. I won't wear anything longer.

Right around the knee on either side is good to me.

I'm really short so above the knee works well for me.

I have to go with mini and just at the knee.I was luckily born with long legs so I like to show the off, not to short of course like some jean skirts that are coming out today!

Actually I like both mini and just below the knee, it kind of depends on the occasion. I do think shorter makes me look a little younger and longer a little older, so it's longer for work and short for play :)

I love the Above the knee: Short, but not too short because there are awesome pencil skirts in that length

All of them except maxi...i'm 5"1' with short legs for my height so there is no way I can pull off a full length skirt.

All of them really,but my favorite is above the knee,I look taller and my legs look longer. The mini has its place,but I don't wear it that often. And I am getting excited to try some maxi dresses.

Yeah, at 5'3" I am not the most statuesque of women and that dictates that hemlines stay above the knee for me, regardless of current trends.

I'm short, so I chose right above the knee. It's the most flattering on me.

I love all of them! But my favorite length is probably right above or right below the knee.

I love wearing a skirt at any length. Minis have thier place, but not during the day... The length I wear the most is calf length, but I'm starting to move just a bit higher at work to JUST above the knee. I can't wait to invest in some flowing maxi dresses!

I have some extra thick calves and I'm short so whenever I wear something below the knee, my legs look cut off. I like my hems to be right above the knee.

I think they're all fine minus the mini, can look a bit trashy.

All except the mini.
