Rated 5 out of 5 by beetlefan Yay!
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DMW1949 My Favorite Summer Dress
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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LabRetrieverLover Comfortable, cute cotton knit dress; has shrinkage
This dress uses a really soft, substantial cotton knit that feels great on. I am 5'8" and normally wear a 12 in Bean clothes. I ordered a M and a L. The M was too short; it was more like a swimsuit coverup length. The L was a a tad too roomy/boxy around the middle before washing, but I took a chance on 100% cotton having some shrinkage in the dryer, and it came out perfect. Length is slightly above my knee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BakingMom Perfect dress in every way!
I have quite a difficult time finding a dress that fits without making me look like the Michelin Tire Woman, but this dress did the trick. Dresses tend to be either too form fitting (not flattering for this 50 year old body), too loose (I do want to look stylish), &/or too short (I am not trying to look like my 20 year old daughter; I am 5'9" and the length was perfect). It has been quite a while since I have purchased a dress that is so comfortable and flattering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lynn63 Love this dress!
Finding a dress that I love is difficult, but I can definitely recommend this one. It has a flattering fit, is loose enough around the middle and hips to hide bulges, and is wonderfully comfortable. I wish it came in more colors, as well as in petite sizes. Otherwise, it is perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovinglife1 stylish, comfortable and great for any age
I am 5' 2" and this hits me right above the knee. I bought both the green and pink. I never would have considered stripes in anything, but this little dress got great reviews, so I thought I would give it a try. These dresses fit very nice. They are not tight in the "wrong" places and look modern. They do not look to young for us middle aged women. They actually look like we are still fashionable! Nice length and they are comfortable. Would look good in winter as well with tights and boots. Didn't give 5 stars as I am not sure how it will wash and dry. It's a good deal at the sale price!

All of the Department Stores are cutting off the dresses and skirts to save money. This is fine for younger ladies but a whole class of the older ladies is looked over. I did buy this dress and will use it as a robe for in house only.
