Rated 5 out of 5 by BirdLady Great Dress but color not as expected
I just received this dress in the true navy which is the plaid version. The picture looks like it is a navy and red plaid with a little bit of white but the red turns out to be pink. There was no mention of this in the description of the dress. Otherwise, this is my favorite style of dress. The fabric and drape is sensational - just didn't care for the pink in the plaid - really would have preferred red, so am returning it. LLBean, how about more color and pattern choices for summer?

Rated 5 out of 5 by BirdLady Great Little Dress!
I love this dress! The drape of the fabric is so soft and nice - very feminine. I ordered the ember color in my usual size (small petite) and it fit perfectly, it won't even need shortening. Haven't laundered it yet but in another review, someone said it shrank a bit in the length, so may not put it in the dryer. LLBean, how about more choices in color and cute prints!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Snaz Most attractive dress ever!
I usually wear a large but after reading the reviews I couldn't decide whether to order L or M. I ordered both and am glad I did. The M fits like a glove. I am 5'5'' so I ordered petite. It hits right at the knee. I have recently lost 100 lbs and my son was here when I tried it on. He said Mom you look so TINY. Who me? Great buy and a great price. Can't wait for spring.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HappyCardHolder LOVE this dress
I'm 5'7" and this fit great until I put it in the dryer, by mistake. It's too short for my taste now so I'm donating it to charity and reordering the teal. I am small busted and modest so wear this with a cami and it works for many occasions. Hoping to see more colors and prints soon!

Rated 4 out of 5 by kinzua material a bit thin and clingy
If there had been a little more weight to the material I would have kept it. Flattering cut. Runs a little big, one size down from my usual size fit fine. The xxs looks amazing on my tiny teen daughter, she will be keeping hers, as she has nothing for the material to cling to.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jericho Not for curvy women
I wanted to love this dress but the very low cleavage and clinginess made this unattractive on my 36" chest. Am sending it back :-(

Rated 3 out of 5 by jeffsdate Too clingy, sexy for me
I didn't realize that this is basically the same dress they had last year, but with short sleeves instead of sleeveless. I am curvy, and the clingy, low-cut bodice and very fitted waist made me look much bustier than I am, and made me feel self-conscious. For those who like to look overtly sexy, this might be fine -- the dress would be adorable on a slim 20-something -- but I am 52 and pretty modest. So, not for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jmay totally versatile
I hate to say too much good about this dress because I am afraid everyone will run out and buy it and I will see myself coming and going...but to be fair, it is a wonderful little lightweight dress that can be accessorized to suit many occasions. I wasn't upset by the low neckline (which is not all that low) because I paired it with a lacy lightwt. t-shirt underneath - only because I am older and not into showing that much skin. Sure it is a soft draping material but that makes it so much more appealing (just wear a silk slip so as not to ruin the drape)!. I have the blue pine color with the cardigan to match. In California I can wear that pretty much anytime anywhere.. a practical addition to any wardrobe. I love the latest colors especially the ember dot. May have to give in and get it before it sells out and after this review it might :<) .

Rated 4 out of 5 by VioletBelle Great fit!
This dress fits like a dream - sooo comfy! - and the cut is super flattering for curvy ladies. I love the length - I am tall, so it's tough to find dresses cut long enough for office wear, but this one does the trick. Also great for all seasons - with a tank top, leggings, cardigan and boots for Fall/Winter, and on its own with pretty sandals for Spring/Summer.
The only thing that could be improved is the fabric quality/weight - could be a little bit thicker, as I fear it may stretch out and lose shape easily as is.
Hope to see this dress in more colours soon!
