I had ordered this dress in a size Large a couple months ago. Too sausage casing-ish, so I sent it back. But I kept thinking about it. Wanting/needing it. I re-ordered in an XL, and am I glad I did. It shows off the good curves and floats over the not so good ones.
By the way, I'm 5'3" and ordered a Regular (not a Petite) and it hits just about mid-knee, which is perfect for me.

Comfortable. Flattering fit. Can be dressed up or casualed out. Fits beautifully from the sizing chart.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MmeX If only a little longer
I like the dress for many reasons, and have multiple colors. However, it would be more versatile if it were a little longer. I am 5'4", and the dress hits 1-2 inches above the knee, not knee-length as the listing claims.
I live in knit dresses for casual wear as I find them more comfortable than pants. The fabric here is a nice weight -- not too heavy or too light -- and drapes nicely. I am also long-waisted, so the styling is great (no waist seam.)
My perfect dress would have a little more shape through the torso -- not so boxy, but it is not bad. I'm a small-ish but curvy lady.
I bought the navy last year, and it was a great traveler around Europe, as well as my everyday wear at home. I bought the red and the light blue this year, and the colors are nice.
Put this dress on, add shoes, and you're ready to go!
So -- designers at LLB -- please remember those of us whose legs are still very good "at a certain age," but a little more length could make it age-appropriate for more situations. I can't wear this to work on casual Fridays, but would like to.

This dress is fabulous. I have it in red. Very vibrant and perks up the whole office. I like loose & flowing, so got a size Large, I'm 5' 7" and 150 lbs. It is comfortable, doesn't lose it's shape, the stripes line up, great quality. I give it 5 stars? looks great with flats and hose.

I really like this dress. It is such a classic look and very comfortable. I ordered in PXL as I am short and round. I find that it actually flatters my shape. It fits me without clinging to me. I ordered in navy/white and wish there were more dresses in this shape that I could order.

Took a chance and ordered this dress. It arrived today and I just love it. I am not normally a dress kind if person. I ordered the blue striped dress in an XL. I'm busty (38DD), tall (5'9") and do not have a defined waistline. This dress draped nicely, hiding all that I want to keep a 'mystery' and the length is right above my knee. Can't wait to wear it on my vacation.

Rated 2 out of 5 by oboysmom Too boxy, too short
I love the feel of the dress, it for me that is the only thing that works. I ordered a large. Unfortunately the dress is too short and very boxy. It has no shape. I'm sure on someone else the dress could be flattering but on a 5'10" frame it was way above my knee. Too short for work. It also is a straight cut with no waist So on me it is like wearing a bag. I would also be concern it will shine when washed. Sorry Bean, but this one is going back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by churchlady1 So comfy
I bought this dress in grey and white stripe and I love it. Wear it with leggings in winter and without for spring & summer. I am 5'3" and weigh 104 lbs and the xsmall fits perfect. I am planning on getting the capri/paperwhite for the spring. Would recommend this to anyone as it is so comfortable to wear and always looks fresh and pressed.

I first bought this dress 2 years ago in the gray and white stripe. I'm 5'4", 110 lbs. and the XS fit well. Last year I bought one in the salmon and navy. I find these dresses so comfortable and very flattering - have gotten many compliments. Now I'm ready to order a third one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by UpperEastsideMom comfortable and versatile
I just received this dress in the navy and white stripe. The quality of the cotton is excellent and the drape and overall look of the dress is classic and cute. It is versatile and for me, can be worn both at work and on weekends. I am pear shaped, 5'6" and 145 lbs. I found the medium is a bit big on top, but perfect on the bottom, and for a pear shaped person that is about as good as it gets in a straight style dress. I definitely recommend it. Llbean should offer more colors!
