Rated 5 out of 5 One of my favorites
This is one of my favorite dresses. I have it in Red/Blue and the Grey/White and am thinking about the Navy/Turquoise. It's easy and still nice enough to wear out. The only thing that would make it better is pockets. I'd like to not have a purse with me sometimes.

I was searching for a comfortable cotton dress for the summer and happened across this instead. I couldn't be happier though. Nice weight, breathable fabric, machine washable, who could ask for more. NOT made in China is a bonus. I'm a teacher, 5'2" and 160#. The Petite Large fits perfect and has plenty of wiggle room. Perfect length, falls at my knee. Sooo comfortable, I can't wait to wear this to work. I can also see that it would travel well.
I bought the Dark Sable as a change of pace from my usual color palette. Beautiful. I will be buying a couple more, it's just hard to decide from all the other great color choices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MEDWgoWildcats A wonderful dress!!
I love this dress! The fabric is a nice weight--not flimsy or see through but not too heavy either. The style is flattering even on my slightly pudgy body! The three buttons on one shoulder are a nice touch. This dress is suitable for all ages--last Sunday at church, a young woman (just going to college) had this dress on and I had worn mine (different colors, fortunately!) and I thought it looked great on both of us! This dress is a great value and I highly recommend it!

I have this dress in the red and blue stripes. It looks great on and feels very comfortable! My favorite dress this season and looks great with a denim jacket!

Rated 3 out of 5 by ohiowoodswalker Mariner dress
I love the dresses and the new sable/woodrose color. However, they are too short. It looks somewhat sad to see a woman my age showing her knees. I'm not that tall, 5'8" and would love to wear more of the Bean dresses. Most are this annoyingly short length, made for someone 20 years old and 5'3". why??? Is that your target group?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bastian Always gets a compliment
Every time I wear this dress I get compliments. I ordered the red, and it is a bright, true red with navy stripes. It is boxy, as other reviewers have said, but if you have curves, it looks great, and if you have too many curves, it flows right over the trouble spots. I am 5'5" and usually wear a size 14. The size large fits perfectly and ends right at my knee. It looks great with navy flats. My only caution would be to say that this is a dress for a cooler summer day, or an air-conditioned office. This fabric is soft and comfy, but it is a substantial weight, so I wouldn't wear it if the temp was above 80 degrees.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mommycozy Cute and casual
This dress is true to size and has a nice weight. It is substantial enough to wear in air conditioning. It is shaped like a sack dress so can look boxy if your body curves up behind like mine. I am going to keep it despite the boxy shape because it is cute and feels so relaxing to wear. I think it will be great for a promenade or for sitting for a long time in the air-conditioned car during road trips.
Perhaps the fabric will soften a little after being laundered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by maxsnana my favorite dress!!!
Don't change a thing! Except give us some new colors, please. A nice mariner red and paperwhite would be great! I LOVE this dress! Quality construction, washes beautifully, travels well, and suitable for various occasions.
The length is perfect! !! Please don't make it longer. Flattering and comfortable...even got raves from my 20 something fashion conscious daughter! Please keep bringing it back each season. One in every color....yes, please!

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.
