Rated 4 out of 5 by Pauvrefille Great summer dress
I'm 5'4", 115 and ordered the size 2 only because it wasn't available in a size 4. I was very surprised that it fit because I usually wear a 4 in Signature items. I wish Beans would get their sizing straight--do away with vanity sizing and make everything consistent across the board. Anyway, in this case the sizing worked in my favor. The dress is cute and summery. I was impressed with the detailing of the belt. It gapes a bit at the armpits, but not enough to send it back. It is shorter than I expected. Most models are taller than me (I'm 5'4") and it fell to the model's knees. Someone else noted that there is a 4" hem. I am considering letting it down about 2". Out of the package the dress is creased and doesn't fall nicely like it does on the model so I'll have to press or steam it. I don't know why people are complaining that it's not lined. It's not see-through and adding another layer of fabric is contradictory to cool seersucker.

This dress is my new favorite. Versatile to wear to many events, its both somewhat dressy yet casual for family picnics and various other events. Be prepared for many compliments on how lovely the dress looks.
I normally wear a size 8 but it is fitted and was perfect in size 10.

This is a lovely seersucker dress. I am 5'4" 160lbs and the size 12 fits perfect. I love the pockets. I love the navy and reddish pink rich striped colors. Love the signature style and hope LLB keeps making these seersucker dresses, and in more colors. Looking forward to wearing when the weather warms up. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MonParapluie Very Nice Fabric, Summery Dress
The waist spared no room for error on me, so I felt it was a bit more snug than I'm used to wearing. I have some armhole gaping on the back. I'm a rectangular shape and I normally don't wear this cut of dress so I'm not used to seeing myself with a full skirt; I think it's cute but I was kind of concerned it looked a little too young for me. I think I can get over that idea with time. The seersucker feels great in the heat and humidity.

I love this dress so much it's ridiculous. It fits perfectly, and is not too long nor too short on my 5'4" frame. I really love the pocket placement which is more to the front of the dress so the sides don't stick out. I'll buy more in different colors if offered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ilovellbean100 Seersucker Dress
This is a very beautiful, classic cotton fabric for the summer, with a puckered, crinkled appearance. The dress style is also very beautiful. It has a boat neckline. The darts in the front of the bodice give the dress a fitted look at the waistline, so order a size up if you are thickwaisted. The skirt is full and flared. I found the skirt a little too short (above the knee) for my taste, but there is about a 4 inch hem (3 3/4 inches), so I will take down the hem by the 4 inches or so and use hem tape underneath the dress to create a longer hem line. I especially LOVED the fabric covered belt!

I'm 59, 5'3" 38c bust. I ordered a 12 Petite. The color was a beautiful Aqua, the fabric was nice, but unfortunately would require a slip. The length was perfect, the waist was uncomfortable and sat high on my short waist. The armholes gapped about 3" in the front at the bust, which seems to be the same problem I have with the LLBean sleeveless fitness dress's design. Returning both.

My royal blue (more like navy) seersucker dress came in the mail yesterday and today I wore it to a work related event and got tons of compliments! Love love love this dress and the signature fit was perfect. I am 5'4" and weighs 160 lbs. I usually wear a size 10 or 12 depending on the clothing brand. The 12 fits perfect. Normally armholes in clothes are too tight for me, but this was perfect. I LOVE the pockets too. I wish the other colors were in my size...I would buy them all. Get this dress, you will feel beautiful and sunny wearing it and get many compliments. Love it and highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sharon63 Beautiful Summer Dress
I had been contemplating buying this dress since I first saw it on-line but couldn't justify the price for a dress that had no lining.After looking at it almost on a daily basis I decided to buy it with the stipulation that I could always return it if it wasn't worth the price. I can tell you that this dress is a keeper.I wish that it was lined like some of my other LLBean summer dresses but I love it so much that I'm willing to make an exception. Some reviewers have said that it runs small but size 10 feels like it was tailor made for me. At 5'5"-150# it fits perfect,fitted through the bodice & waist without being tight(36C bust) & a nice A-line flare from the waist down(perfect for my curvy bottom half). The belt fit perfect also,It hits just a tad above the knee. The pockets are at the front hip bone rather than on the side seam so they lay flat instead of sticking out . The seersucker material is soft & the colors are vibrant instead of muted like depicted on-line.This dress can be dressed up with pretty wedge sandals or dressed down casual with slip on sneakers. So happy that I got this dress before it was sold out in my size.
