Rated 2 out of 5 by CatWiskas Plunging Neckline and Fading Color
I love the dress style, it's cute, I like the empire waist. I bought the navy blue medallion print. The fabric is lightweight, has a very nice drape, and is not clingy. Even with all that going for it, I'm returning it. After wearing and washing only once, the color faded. When I wore it I was a bit uncomfortable with the low-cut neckline so I put a pin in it to keep it closed. That wasn't enough though, it was still too revealing: every time I leaned forward my bra showed. Also, the seams around the waistline (there are 2 of them) rubbed and irritated my skin. I found myself tugging and adjusting all day. Too bad, I really liked the style, sad to see it go.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Activescientist Dreaded high waist
From the photo, it appeared that this dress might escape the dreaded trend toward empire or almost-empire waists. However, even after ordering a regular for my 5 foot 3 inch frame, the waist is too high. Tugging the fabric helps a bit, but then the top plunges.
Too bad, because the fabric seems quite good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MBEG Dress size Large
I am 5'8" and 150 lbs. I bought two of these dresses last summer and the colors faded after a couple washes. I found that the waist was high, fabric thin, and the seams in the waist band were uncomfortable next to my skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LizzieT Flattering and comfy
I had ordered, and returned, this dress before. I love this style but wasn't so fond of the thin fabric which could cling in the wrong places. (And who wants to wear shapewear under a *summer* dress?)
BUT the navy medallion print was so pretty that I took a chance and ordered it.
I'm glad I did. The cut and fit are perfect and the dark print compensates for the clingy fabric. I also like the fact that the dress is entirely in the print (no contrasting neckband or waistband). This helps in the overall slimming effect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Warbler11 Loved the dress but neckline too low
The minute I put this dress on, I loved everything about it - except the neckline. I waited to return it, but in the end I knew I would never be comfortable wearing the dress with such a plunging neckline. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Annerdoodles Soft, Comfortable and terrific fit!
I am 5'2 1/2 inches and 123lbs. This dress is so soft and fits me perfectly. When ordering a two piece outfit I wear a 4 top and a 6 bottom. I ordered this dress in an Xsmall and it fits me like a glove. I prefer dresses just below the knee so I ordered the regular and not the petite. I hope to order more in various colors. Thanks LL bean for a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cjaynrun Lovely Dress
This is a great dress. I am 5'4" 150 pounds and bought the Large regular. It fits great and falls below the knee. I wear a tank underneath to fill in the V-neck gap and it looks great. It is extremely comfortable as well as easy to care for. I like the empire style since I carry weight at the waistline. I pair it with a shorter length cardigan when necessary. Highly recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Silver123 Poor constuction, thin fabric
Hopefully, this is not the norm, but the dress I received was not constructed properly, and there was a large gap under the arm on one side. The fabric was also too thin for my slender but elderly bod.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TropicPrincess1 Amazing fit for this muffin top.
Put it on, fits like a comfortable glove. I love this. Makes me feel 26 again.
5'8", 170 lb - large fits well - I'm busty, so I think it helps fill out the dress top. May have to use a cute butterfly pin to secure between the girls, though. Could use just a but more coverage.
Got the blue floral - nice for hot Florida weather. Am now getting the coral floral.

I went up a size so I wouldn't have to safety pin by the chest. It worked well and it's not that much bigger. It's very comfortable.
