Rated 5 out of 5 by SarahBear04530 Great for trouble body types!
I am a size 16, and often, the clothing I find at many retailers is either cut short and wide like a fireplug, or so narrow I(like an XXS, just blown up) that my curves look unproportionately massive. This dress is the perfect marriage- it cuts in at the waist to flatter your figure, but doesn't cling to any problem spots on the hips and thighs. Also, the neckline is great, as it covers my bra straps- no pulling or tugging here! Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mainelady2 Love this dress
I found the cranberry sailor dress on sale at the Freeport store. It was the only one left & such a score!!! I'm 5'5 115lbs size 2 fits perfect. I also have last years version in navy/red and still love it. It looks just as it did when I bought it after many washes (I hang dry). This dress is comfortable, an easy go to outfit with no fuss!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DeLarry striped sailor dress
I am 5' 6" and weight 140 lbs and the dress fit just fine on me. My waist is a 30" and my hip is a 37 1/2 and I fit into a size 8. It looks comfortable on me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ShoppingQueen250 Wonderful dress
Very cute casual dress. It fits wonderfully, in my usual size. It washes and packs well (no wrinkles!). The fabric is soft and substantial. The 2P hits just above my knee (I am 5' tall).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happycustomer14 Cozy for a cool New England Spring
This dress is comfortable, and cozy for this cool spring. It looks great after washing and kept its shape. This will be a favorite of mine for a long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LadyBeanBag Fun comfy dress
Took a chance on this dress, with horizontal stripes and all, especially as soon as I saw that it came in dark cranberry. Love the cranberry; but note that the contrasting stripe is a pinkish/coral/orangey colour ? not the off-white/cream that I was expecting, judging from the online pics. I think this just adds to the fun factor, but might not be for everyone. The fabric is a nice substantial weight, neither clingy nor flimsy. I threw it in a cold-water wash as soon as I received this (after I tried it on first). Then tumbled it briefly on air only and hung it up to dry. No shrinkage, no ironing needed. Length is above the knee, but not too short (5?6?, 145lbs, bought the size 10, probably could?ve gone with an 8). I normally avoid horizontal stripes as they can be unflattering unless you?re a model-thin-waif, but what the heck. This is a cheery dress and horizontal stripes seem to be everywhere this season. This one actually works for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by powbeach Great fit and comfortable
I really loved the look of the dress when I viewed it in the catalog. I normally wear a size 8, but was hesitant to order that size because my measurements did not match those for a size 8 in the LL Bean chart. The clerk at the LL Bean store convinced me to order the 8, and I'm glad I did. It fits perfectly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by savvygal Compliments Galore!
I felt like a million bucks today. I wore the blue dress with some Hunter wellies to church and received a ton of compliments. It was adorable!! I am a 10 to 12 and purchased the 10 (even though I tend to go with 12 in Signature). It covered the situation happening in my midsection (4 kids will do that) and was super flattering. A teeny bit short, but if it were both unclingy and long and it might be a little too dowdy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MBV1 Striped sailor dress
I expected the color to be a navy blue and I didn't care for the dress because of the blue shade. Didn't go with any of my navy accessories. Fit nicely and the knit was nice and thick

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gina2014 Comfortable and perfect fit
I must say this dress is so comfortable and made of a great feel fabric. The fit is perfect! I would buy another if it came in other colors. It is great for everyday and Sunday too.
