Rated 4 out of 5 by jmay A bit low 4 woman of a certain age
this is the greatest little dress - I have two. I gave it 4 stars because it is low but I wear it with a pretty cami underneath. I have to say however that I am 5' 6 1/2", 126 lbs. and flat chested so that needs to be considered when deciding if this dress is a good choice for you. It is simply a perfect little dress for so many occasions ...so comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luvclassics80 Great classic summer dress
I purchased this dress in the navy dot print. I loved it so much I also bought it in black. I'm 5'3 125 lbs and I ordered a XS petite. The fabric soft, but not clingy. It's comfortable, but dressy enough to wear in the office. The v-neck is very flattering. I love polka dots, and usually prefer smaller dot prints. This print is perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 Awesome Fit
I just received the Summer Knit Dress in black, large, petite. I love the fit, drape of the material and the way it looks on my body shape. I am 5'5" and normally wear a regular large. After reading some of the previous reviews I bought the dress in the petite. I am so glad I did, it hits just below my knee cap and is just the length I wanted. It makes my waist look small, accentuates my curves, hides my little tummy pooch, and the neckline is still modest enough to wear to temple. I would recommend this dress to any woman. More colors please.

Rated 4 out of 5 by IslandGirl24 Not for tall
I am 5 feet 9 inch and the dress ends in the middle of my knees. It is not flattering. I wanted a dress covering my knees. Otherwise it is a beautiful dress.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Usuallysatisfiedwllbean Liked it, but...
This dress is cute, lovely fabric, fit well in the shoulders and waist and the medium petite was a perfect length. So why am I returning it? The v-neckline did not work with my 34-D bust. The neckline opened up showing not just cleavage, but the front of my bra! I never thought I would say this about something from LLBean, but it was just a bit too revealing! If you can wear this dress, buy it...it's cute! I'm sorry I have to return it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuvBritLit Perfect for travel!
I rolled this dress and put it in my suitcase and when I arrived at my destination I pulled it out to hang up so the wrinkles would be out when I wore it the next day... totally unnecessary! It was wearable right out of the suitcase. It's very light-weight, soft, and comfortable.I am short-waisted and the high waist on this dress works perfectly for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HermitGardener Darling summer dress!
Ordered one, tried it on, and immediately ordered another one! Perfect fit for this middle-aged body, 5'4" and 135 pounds. I normally wear my dresses and skirts at the mid-calf level, but was looking for something a bit less "fuddy duddy" for the summer, but not too short or revealing. This dress falls just below my kneecap, just right! Fresh and swirly, it makes me feel very feminine and lively. My only criticism is that the pink and green one looks a bit washed out; the colors are not as lively as the blue floral one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RockportSunday Very nice, but quite long
I'm 5'2", 110 pounds, got the cute navy dot print in petite XS. Great fit, nice soft fabric, but well below my knee.

Rated 3 out of 5 by WildStrawberry Too short in the body
I had wanted the navy blue but since it was sold out I tried the green floral. The color looked faded and was not flattering on me. I was also disappointed with the fit. I am 5'9" and it was too short in the body with the waist coming just under my bust. Also the quality of the material was flimsy for the price. To me it is something I would use as a beach cover up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VioletGreen Lovely dress!
I bought the black knit dress first because it was recommended for travel. It arrived and it has quickly become my favorite dress, it's comfortable, classic, and is loose and clingy in all of the right places. I bought a medium (I'm 5'8 and 165 pounds - I carry most of my weight in my thighs so my the medium is perfect for my waist). I cannot believe these dresses! Comfortable, flattering, and perfect for a day in the office or a weekend out. I bought the pink summer knit dress next and I love it just as much! I hope LL bean continues to make more of these dresses in different colors. Lovely! A solid lavender, blue or green dress would be a great addition!
