Rated 4 out of 5 by Lucerne12345 Very nice fabric, needs a belt
Wonderfully high quality dress with weight to prevent blowing up in the wind. Is a sweater-type, but I would wear it in the summer it is so comfortable. Sleeve length is perfect and the colors are deep and vibrant. I wish it had a belt, but I'll try a scarf I already own. Great dress overall I highly recommend if you need something to go from the office to your B&B getaway on the weekend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MARLEYD0G Good for Casual Wear
I am 5'8" and 122lb. The small size fitted well, but a little short for a formal outing. Took it to Mexico and it was ideal for the evening, but the weight was too heavy and thick for 85+ degree daytime wear. Can't imagine dressing this up with a belt, jewelry, pantyhose etc., but it suited my purpose worn with flip-flops or flat skimmer shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rhubarb737 This is great!
I ordered this item in the brown and pink stripe combo on a markdown, in size XS Misses' Regular, my usual size (5'7", 135lbs, hourglass shape, early 30s). It's a great piece! It fits true to size, but certainly has lots of room through the body, such that if I were a bit smaller, it would be too big and I'm already getting the smallest size in my category. It's a simple, attractive, comfortable, versatile staple piece. If it fits you well, it's definitely a solid purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DressesOnlyPlease It's Hard To Improve On Perfection!
I just received my new dress in the medium blue and white stripes, I love it so much I ordered 3 more! I am 5'3", 155 lbs. I originally ordered the Petite Large and it was too big. I returned it for a Petite Medium and it fits me perfect without hugging my body. No, I don't want everyone to see my waistline of muffin on this 61 y.o. body. The dress falls just above my knee and the fit is flattering. I live in La Quinta where the devil left his shoe; the fabric is a perfect weight, not too heavy and not thin at all.
I am waiting for the white and coral rose to go on sale so I can purchase it too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MrsPreacher Love the style....color not so much!
Love the style and fit of this dress but will be returning hopefully for a color exchange. Ordered the "Dusty" blue and green striped dress. Would not say it is "Dusty" as much as truly appears to be FADED and not attractive.
Love the fit and would love to see in other colors and and solids, too.
As always, L L Bean is the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MelissaMA Perfect Casual Dress!
I absolutely love these dresses. They are thicker and fit me perfectly. I am curvier and have a hard time wearing dresses like this, but this fit so well that I am buying more! I am 5'3" and wear a size 8 (and am bigger in the hips). I bought a petite M and it hit just above my knee...perfect sizing. This does not expose my non-flat belly and is super flattering. Can't recommend enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HHHappy Can't Get Enough of This Mariner Dress!
I first bought this dress in navy with white stripes (which I love to wear with a red belt and accessories) -- but I now have 5 of them: navy and white; blue and white; pink and navy; green and navy; and light brown and pink stripes.
I've found this dress to be especially good to take along when traveling. It packs well, it isn't clingy, and it's versatile, making it suitable for almost any situation or restaurant: it's a great casual look when worn with flats, or it can be dressed up with heels and a belt or scarf.
Thank you, LL Bean! (And I would love to see this same knit dress in solid colors!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by PaxTeCum Super cute and conservative
I'm very happy with this dress. The magenta color is vibrant but not gawdy, the length is modern but modest, and I look well-dressed as a mom. I recently wore it to a wedding, Sunday Mass, and work in the office. I like it with tights. The cotton knit is tight and strong and the fibers have a sheen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LillyGal Comfortable go to dress
I purchased the Navy and Marine blue dress first and when I found how comfy it was and washed well I ordered the raspberry/Navy dress. I find them very flexible and can be dressed up or with tights for a more casual look. I am 5'7", 135 lbs and the medium fits great. The fabric is a nice weight for almost year round wear (probably not for hot summer temps) and hangs well (just above the knee) As I wash most of my clothes in cold water and dry on delicate the dresses did not shrink - I would be cautious though. I took the dresses out after the first 10 minutes and let them finish drying on a hanger. They travel well.
