Rated 1 out of 5áby March0656 So disappointing!
I can't believe this dress had such good reviews because the fabric is so thin and cheap-feeling. I am so disappointed in the fabrics these days. It seems like every company has gone cheap! This dress is so thin and flimsy, that it reminds me of something you'd get from a cheap discount store. Definitely not the quality I expect from L L Bean. I am returning it.

Rated 2 out of 5áby dianeindurham material is too thin
I love the dress, the cut and the color, however, the fabric is quite thin and revealing (pantylines, etc). Lastly, there are some discolorations on the chest area of the dress making it look stained. Hubby said it looked like toothpaste on the chest. Sadly, I'll be returning it.

Rated 4 out of 5áby GdeAlmeida Great dress- inconsistent sizing
I purchased this dress in the dark blue size medium: the fit was perfect, the dress was nice quality and washed well. I liked it so much I purchased the same in the coral, size medium: this dress was huge and had to go back. I am not sure if the dress was mislabeled or if the sizing is just wonky. I am normally a medium in Bean clothes. The dress is great but it is a pain to have to send it back and try a small when the first medium fit so well.

Rated 4 out of 5áby LisaAnnArbor Comfortable & flattering but color is not as shown
I have this dress in one of last year's colors, and love its lightweight comfort. I receive many compliments when I wear it, even with my slightly lumpy 50-year old body. I normally wear a size 12 on my 5"6" 165-lb frame, and the large looks good on me. Easy to dress up or down, and extremely comfortable. As others have noted, the neckline is a bit plungy, but you wear a cami under it if that bothers you. I liked it so much that I ordered another this year, in blue pine -- hoping for the muted bluey-green shown on the website and in the catalog. To my disappointment (but perhaps to others' delight), it was more of a bright turquoise (closer to the blue pine color shown for the geo print version). They tell me they are changing the color in their catalog and online, which is helpful but, until they do, know that the blue pine solid is really quite a bright turquoisey aqua. Other than the color being not what I expected, I highly recommend this dress.

áby CyclinMama Love this dress so much I got another!
I love this dress - it looks great pulled from my bag with a little shake, never wrinkles, has an easygoing length, and I love the prints. My only complaint is that the neckline is pretty low, but I just wear a cami underneath at work and so that's no biggie.
Super flattering, hides just enough tummy :) A perfect summer dress for concerts, work (I pair it with a blazer), BBQs, whatever!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Happy25y Nice dress
This is the first dress I have purchased from LL Bean and it certainly met my high expectations. The dark indigo print is very pretty, and the material moves and flows gracefully. The size chart is very accurate. I bought the fine gauge cardigan in cornflower blue to top off the look.

Rated 5 out of 5áby DCF1951 Comfortable, great fit, great price
I just received this dress in the aqua print and it fits perfectly, looks great and is super comfy. I'm a Petite Medium, 5'4" and usually wear a 10 Petite. The Petite Medium should fit if you're an 8P or 10P. I did refer to the sizing chart and felt that helpful in deciding on the size. This is the perfect dress for summer and I plan to wear it on vacation. I immediately ordered the coral print with the 10% promotion.

Rated 5 out of 5áby AuntRY LOVE this comfortable sundress
This dress was exactly what I expected - lightweight, great fit and priced within my budget - I love it! I'm so glad LL Bean has revived dresses...there were a few years where only a few dresses offered.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Aspen33 Poor Fit
The fabric is very thin, and washed out.
The cut is much tighter than most of LL Bean's clothes.
Very disappointed and will be sending this back.

Rated 5 out of 5áby SLU1 Good fit and comfortable
I thought that this dress fit very nicely. I didn't think that it was too tight in the bust, it is fitted but I don't think that it could be any other way with knit. It drapes nicely from the empire waist down. I thought that it was very true to size.
