Rated 5 out of 5 by fromGodscountry really great fit
The fit of this dress is great and it feels really good on. I really like the length, just below my knees. Most of the dresses are too short for me.
The weight of the material is nice, not too thin. I am happy with the neckline, it works well with wearing necklaces.
My dress is plaid, I would buy the paisley or other designs if they were available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IllBeanFan Paisley Summer Knit Dress is Lovely
Received this dress today. Beautiful fabric and drape with no cling. I am a size 20 petite and took a chance ordering the XL petite. Too tight for me. Breaks my heart to return it. The bright navy with burnt orange is beautiful and I generally avoid prints. The slight fullness of the skirt hides lumps without clinging?I know, it's miraculous. Yes, the fabric is thin, and I usually prefer sturdier knits. But this fabric is the exception, soft and very comfortable. I agree with the product description that this style is quite flattering.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 03092013 Plastic gets 2 thumbs down
This dress has an an amazing cut and I love the way it looks on me. Unfortunately there was a bad manufacturing call with including lots of PLASTIC along the inside stitches (along the upper waist/babydoll part). I wore this dress for the 1st (and last) time for the whole day while traveling and it itched every time I moved. I do not have sensitive skin. However who's skin wants to rub against plastic all day (and it was not at all tight).
LLBean, pls redesign this lovely dress minus the plastic.

This dress is everything it claims to be. It's stylish, soooo comfortable and a dream to pack. Roll it up, throw it in your suitcase, and when you unpack, the dress looks perfect. Please make more of these dresses in different colours and patterns. I would buy them all!

The perfect choice when you want an easy care, great looking dress you can put on in the morning and forget about - knowing you look and feel great.
The lightweight fabric is easy on the skin in sweltering temperatures and the cut and fit don't cling, but still manage to flatter your figure.
I bought a medium and the length is perfect for my 5'8" frame. Which is much appreciated - most dresses aren't available in tall and are a bit too short for peace of mind.
The various colors available now give one many options to choose from and the neckline is sexy without being too revealing - although a cami is an option if you have any concerns about showing a bit too much cleavage.
Thanks Bean. You hit the mark right on with this dress. Can't think of a thing to improve it.

I'm completely in love with this dress. I have worn it so many times this summer and plan to wear it as far into Fall as I can. The fit is flattering and the low V is easily remedied by one stitch, or better yet, a cute cami underneath.
Great value and very flattering.

LLBean is not known for hip clothes-- but this dress has an unusual navy and burnt orange combination that is absolutely gorgeous, combined with a lovely pattern that is made to look a bit like batik. Hard to appreciate unless you see it in person; in fact, my eyes had just skimmed over it in the catalog until I saw it in the store and fell in love. Not only that, but the material is incredibly soft, and the fit is wonderful on my frame-- makes most of my curves without being clingy, and hits right below the knees (I am 5'5", 150, normally wear a size 10). I'm wondering if the other color is as pretty...? I'm tempted.

Very soft material which I love..a medium petite is what I chose..the bustline just fine, I am a size 36 D....the length rather long which I am not wild about..I am 5'2 and slim and I don`t care for the longer lengths much. I am finding in many of the Petite sizes a long skirt such as the linen dress in pale opal,it can look dowdy too long.Yes,I could take it up and might or not....All in all a most pretty dress that will take me into Fall I know...this dress looks good all day..no wrinkles really and I might buy more colours if the price is lowered...In spite of the length this dress is a winner..

Purchased this dress in the red print and love it! Fits beautifully...I'm 5'4" and ordered the petite small. It is so comfortable that I've ordered it in the hunter green print as well. The fabric is perfect for summer anywhere and even in winter in the warmer climates. Just add a sweater and maybe boots and it's wearable year-round.
