I bought this dress for a upcoming trip to Europe and I can tell it's a great travel dress. It fits well, can easily be dressed up or down, is made of high-quality material, doesn't appear to wrinkle easily, and it's machine-washable. What's not to love?
The design is classic and flattering. I can tell it's going to be a favorite for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Seattlejanie So cute & summery
I love this dress. Lovely seersucker fabric, and the cut seems more forgiving than the Signature poplin dress in navy that I bought recently. (Tried to write a review for that, bet it kept routing me to this more recently purchased signature dress).
I didn't order up to a size 8 in this dress because I wanted a closer fit than what I got in the navy poplin dress & also not to be drowning in plaid at the skirt. It is great, snug at the bust but doesn't squash me. Maybe because the fabric is lighter & less restrictive than the poplin? Not sure, but it works fine & the bust is no more snug in this dress in a 6 than the 8 I ordered in the poplin signature.
The plaid - it is really bright. Brighter than I was expecting from how it looked on my computer monitor. The yellow is strong / bright, so is the orange and green on the dress. So be aware of that if you are wanting a muted plaid seersucker. With both signature dresses I've ordered, the pockets were still sewn shut & I wondered if they were mock pockets until I saw them indeed in place inside of the dress. Easy enough to open up with a pair of scissors but not sure why they are mailed out like this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bostonbean75 Love This Dress
I bought this dress in blue two summers ago, and it is a steady favorite. It has also worn extremely well, and looks brand new. The material is exceptionally crisp, and shakes out beautifully after being packed in a suitcase. No ironing necessary! I always just hand wash it and hang it to dry, and it looks perfect.
Every time I wear this dress, I get compliments on it and many questions about where I got it. Summer barbecues, graduations, casual weddings, the office...by changing jewelry or shoes, this dress can be casual or elegant. I love it! If you buy it, you will definitely not regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by llbeanershopaholic My favorite dress of all time!
This is my FAVORITE dress, and I have many llbean dresses. I am 5'6", size 12 across all brands and am DD in the chest area. I ordered 14 regular and the fit was perfect. I ordered up to accommodate my chest area better. It is a BIT on the short side hitting about two inches above the knees, but considering everything else this dress has to offer in style, I overlook it. As a matter of fact, I ordered a second one. When I find something that I like this much, I like to have a spare. It is stylish! I get so many compliments and ladies ask where I got it, truly admired by all. I don't make it look good, it makes me look good! (I think). :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by MissChoosy Perfect fit. Very flattering. Belt too big.
Love this dress! Good quality fabric. Perfect fit, true to size, the fit is exactly as depicted on the model. My only complaint is that the belt is quite a bit too large for me. I'll need to put an extra hole in it to tighten the buckle down to my waist or wear another belt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vtblond Great dress!
I have the blue and the peach and get complimented on this dress every time I wear it. Great material and the fit is true to size. My only (small) complaint is I wish they made one extra hole on the fabric belt that was included on it (it is a bit loose at the last hole). I am 5'11" hourglass shape. Looks great and is fun and easy to wear. I love to wear this dress!! You will too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by BirdLady My Favorite Style!
After lusting for this dress for weeks, I finally ordered it. I love, love, love it!! BUT - I just wish it were a little easier to get in and out of. It's the back zipper that I wasn't too happy with, otherwise I would have given 5 stars. I usually wear petite sizes but I order LLBean Signature dresses in a regular as they are too short for me otherwise. The 6 regular is just right for me size-wise. I decided to return it thinking that the zipper issue would become just too much. I would recommend this dress but I would also be sure to mention the back zip.

I love this dress! I am a long-time Bean shopper, but the Signature line doesn't usually do much for me. This dress is different. Beautifully cut and made, soft fabric, attention to detail. I love the pockets and the little tabs to conceal the bra straps. The plaid is darker in person, but that will help this dress transition to fall. I typically wear a 12, and the 12 fit perfectly.

I truly love this dress. I am 5'2" and 100 lbs. I bought the 0p and the fit was perfect. While I was out shopping, I was stopped by many people saying they loved my dress. All I could do was smile and say, "thanks!!"

Beautiful style, fabric and fit. Very 50s. Adorable. Cropped sweater perfect with the dress. Self belt, or add the narrow leather Bean belt. Will be a great summer travel dress. A winner for Bean.
