Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBean4tina Mariner Dress
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!

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.

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.

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.
