I am a 5'3", 145# grandma and this is the dress I have been looking for all summer. I ordered Medium, petite. I like the material and the way it flows and hides my stomach pouch. At 40B the high waist perfectly holds the girls. I will wear it bra-less, at home, in the summer after an evening shower. I like the rose violet color, though I might have ordered the blue had it been available in my size. Maybe next summer. I ordered so late in the season that in Arizona (at 5000 feet), the cooler fall temps are setting in so I will look forward to many wearings next season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Masonsmomma Gorgeous, Flattering, Comfortable
Being big busted, I can never find a proper fitting dress that does NOT hike up in the front or make me look unflattering. This is my new favorite dress of all time. Hangs beautifully, is not so short waisted for women like me that the waist falls somewhere mid bossom. I love it. Bought the birch, will buy the others, and hope they come out with new colors, prints. Can easily be dressed up or down. It's a KEEPER. Thank you, LLBean. You are too.

I just got this dress and I love it. The pattern in birch is very subtle, the fabric is soft and very fluid. The dress drapes nicely and covers my stomach! I read all the reviews and don't understand the very negative comments. It's true that I have to tack the deep plunging "v" neck but even with that, it's a terrific dress that will go from running errands to dinner. I'd love to buy another one in a different color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ComfyElegantCanadian So Many Compliments!
I got so many compliments on my summer knit dress that I bought three more as they are so comfortable for my work as a high school teacher. The dress actually looks better on me than on the model! I am in my mid-50s, 5'10" and small chested, so I usually wear a camisole and mid-heeled shoes. The fabric is light weight but drapes very well. Feminine, classy, and feels like I'm wearing pyjamas! What more could I ask for ?

I purchased the same style dress last year in red color, it has been wonderful. This year I bought another one in blue floral pattern. It is same fantastic in term of style, workmanship, fabric and comfort level when wearing it.
To top it. This week at work I was stopped by an unknown male coworker complementing "pretty dress". It was surely a surprise, as we are in an extremely conservative, male dominated engineering area, male coworkers are indifferent about others' appearance.

I purchased this dress in a Medium (Black) and was very pleased with the fit. I could have probably gone to a small and still felt comfortable. It has a wide flat "cumberbund" and the skirt falls nicely hiding any lumps. The neckline is a bit low but appropriate for evening wear. The material is soft, fluid and lightweight. I would definitely order true to size, and if in doubt size down as the fit is generous especially on the lower half. I am 5ft 6in and 143 pounds. Usually wear an 8.

I have always enjoyed wearing easy care dresses in summer. I have some I like, some I don't. THIS dress is my favorite of all time! I am 55 years old, and do not really have the upper arm area that I feel comfortable showing out in public...I would bet LOTS of women would agree with this. These sleeves are just perfect. I highly recommend this dress, and I am begging LL Bean to carry this in more colors. I would buy one in every color offered, so please add more in this style. I get so many compliments when I wear this dress, and we all love to feel pretty.

Was hoping to wear this dress to a summer wedding. The print and fabric were nice but the fit was funny and not very flattering. Too long (I'm 5'2/120 lbs) and low waisted. I could have had it tailored but was out of time. Had to return the dress.

I ordered the black dress in a medium, which is my usual size. The fabric is soft and drapes nicely. I plan on wearing this to work with flats, but it would also look nice for a dinner date.

I had quite the time trying to even buy one in my size as this dress was so very popular,with its pretty dots....I watched every day and managed to secure the Coral Rose and the Navy in a medium Petite.It is long on me as I am 5`2",slender and with a bust line.I am having it taken up a few inches as it looked frumpy too long on me! The fabric is soft and feels so good on my skin,the 'dots' are adorable and youthful and the style is so feminine and the dress drapes beautifully on one.It is everything one would love in a dress,cool,delicate,one feels simply terrific in this dress.Oh,yes,there is a slight hint of cleavage but nicely displayed and rather desirable for even an older woman! The colours are vibrant and so is the workmanship of the dress! I thank you once again L.L.Bean and the great help I had from the wonderful person on the phone .I Love It !!!
