Rated 4 out of 5 by campingkat Great dress
I just bought two fitness dresses with cap sleeves, one Black and one Teal Blast. Although I could have gone with extra small (I am 5'2" tall and weigh 115#, I bought size small. Extra small was a little too clingy for my small belly bump.) Size small is a little large on me, but hides the "bump". I like the length of the dress. Other reviewers complained about the feel of the fabric. It is a fitness fabric made up of Lycra and polyester. What else can we expect? I love this dress and expect to wear both a lot this summer. Such a nice alternative to shorts. Worn with bicycle liners, I should be able to wear it while cycling. I think it will travel well, too!

LL Bean hit a "home run" with this dress. Perfect fit, comfortable, no wrinkles, and looks great. I have two of these dresses, one black and the other red azalea. The black is especially nice when traveling because you can dress it up with a scarf and wear it to dinner, etc., however, every time I wear either of them, I get compliments. They skim the body nicely without being too tight and the fabric has enough body to it that you don't see panty or bra lines. I'm 5'6', 127 lbs., and wear size small.

I love this dress.
Fabric ,length, everything
Just wish it came in more colors like navy and pewter etc and hopefully in 3/4 sleeve for fall
Great for casual or put on heels and jewelry and wear our for dinner
Also a great travel dress.

Wearing my fitness dress now in 100+F dry California heat, the land of no rain. It is a dry heat but the dress does not cling. I love the fabric, it is slick and very forgiving. I ordered my 4th fitness dress and wear them constantly.

Great dress. Perfect for travel, play, or date night. Purchased in black, looking to buy another. Comfy, great fit, very slimming, love the pocket-just enough room for essentials.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Teaque My favorite dress
I just love this dress. The fabric hangs beautifully, I didn't find it stiff or unforgiving at all. The cut is is very flattering, makes me look 10 lbs. thinner. The colors are deep and don't fade at all when washed. I have the cap sleeve in all three colors and the only complaint was it ran long, below the knee, I'm 5"7" and I hemmed them only took about 15 minutes each. I also have both sleeveless colors, the fabric is the same quality and these were shorter and needed no hemming as they hit just at the top of my knee where I like my dresses. BTW, the skirt is nice too. Love the whole line.

Rated 1 out of 5 by luna1 Plasticky fabric
Disappointed with this dress and sent back. The blue is a beautiful color but the fabric is stiff and plasticky, almost like those oilcloth tablecloths. Note that it runs quite long, which also felt odd in a very casual dress.

The first time I put this on I felt like I was on my way to yoga class. It was very slimming in black and oh so comfy. It has spandex/lycra but doesn't cling too much. Love it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Glorp Nice style; horrible fabric
I ordered the sleeveless and with-sleeve versions of this dress and was excited to receive them an hour ago. I tried both of them on immediately, and knew instantly that they would have to be returned. The fabric feels like thick bathing suit material, and the black dress looks like a seal's skin. Gross. This was not how I expected a summer dress - or any dress, for that matter - to feel. Silly me, for ignoring the fact that it's mostly thick Lycra. SO BUYER BEWARE: DON'T OVERLOOK THIS. If you like thick bathing suit material, go for it. If not, don't buy it. I'm so disappointed. They're both going back tomorrow because the thought of that material against my skin gives me the heebie-jeebies. Too bad this dress style doesn't come in good old-fashioned cotton or even cotton/polyester.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SconnieGirl Not for Hourglass Figures
I ordered my usual size in the Black color and found the fit very strange. The top was large and the bodice and skirt clingy. Being busty, this is the opposite problem I usually have. The "empire" waist is so by seaming decoration only, the actual waist of the garment by contour is average. The fabric is heavier than expected and seems to have a great deal of stretch, but it clung badly to my hourglass hips and thighs. Very disappointing, as it was a cute dress and seemed perfect for casual outings.
