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 5 out of 5 by mainergator Great for Nursing Moms
I have this dress and wore it as much as possible over the summer. I love the cross over v-neck and it is perfect for a nursing mom like me! It is low cut so I do have to wear a camisole underneath but I love how it can be casual or dressy, it's comfy and easily washed and dried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Para5 So comfortable!
I love this sleeveless dress! It's soft, stretchy and comfortable without being clingy! (Which makes it very flattering even in size P-XL.) I did use a pin at the 'V' of the neck, to make it more modest for work attire..(The only thing that could make it better, would be pockets! Are you listening LLBean?)

Rated 5 out of 5 by KittyKas I love This Dress
I bought this dress in the coral color. It fits me wonderfully! It's so comfortable and it's dressy enough for work but causal enough for a cookout. I am about to purchase one for my mom! It falls perfectly on me and i get a lot of compliments

Rated 1 out of 5 by NitPicky Neckline is too low; inside is too itchy
I bought this dress *twice* ? two different patterns (neither looks exactly like this) ? because it looked so pretty and comfortable. First I had to have it altered because the neckline is so low and creeps down. After that I tried wearing it, only to find that the inside stitching was scratchy.
I wish LL Bean would fix this ? it's such a pretty and comfortable looking dress.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MatildaLou a bit dowdy
I bought this dress in black last year for a trip to Italy. It packed very well and was very versatile for dinners out, worn with different scarves/shawls. This year, I bought the blue medallion print, but suddenly --- ugh. Dowdy. I think it was the length, and perhaps coupled with the print. I sent it back. Otherwise, this series of dresses have very nice fabric which feels very comfy to wear. The black one was a good "investment" piece for travel, but the style just didn't translate well to the print. I am age 58, 5'5", XS (a bit busty but thin frame).

Rated 5 out of 5 by musicgrandma many-occasions dress
I don't understand the negative review comments about the low neckline. I always wear a matching-color camisole underneath, without having any worries about too much exposure.
The dress fits well and is dressy enough or casual enough to wear almost anywhere, with the appropriate shoes, jacket or jewelry. It's slightly longer than I would prefer, but that's better than being too short - I might hem it at some point.
I washed it at least twice without any negative effects and line-dried it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by thatpricekid Can't get enough of these dresses
I have 9 of these dresses. I love the style, the feel of the soft fabric, and the modest length. The length is still modest when I had to order a petite in a particular pattern I wanted. I find with these dresses it is easier to throw on than shorts/capris and head out the door.

Rated 4 out of 5 by saramay Nice dress
Love the style of this dress. Very comfortable material. Unfortunately, it is not for ladies that are very buxomly inclined.
Sorry I had to return it. No other size would do the trick either, I'm sure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by msfrogladie buyer beware: poor quality
I read good and bad reviews for this dress but purchased it anyway because LL Bean has such a good reputation. The dress is comfortable. The V is low. I sewed it up a little and that helped. I wore the dress to the zoo and a stranger came up to me and asked me if I knew that there were holes in the seams of my dress? I went into the restroom and on both sides there were spots where the manufacturer has not sewn the seam correctly. Each area missed was a good three inches big. It was like having slits. Those at the zoo got a good look at my bra and underpants. How it got through quality control I do not know unless this was a second. Still, I liked the color so I repaired the seams. I washed the dress in cold water /gentle cycle ( no dryer). The dress came out misshapen and unwearable. I should have paid attention to the negative reviews.
