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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mirabelle207 Fits like a glove
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TennisMenace Point/Counterpoint
Just read the previous review and had to offer a counterpoint -- I, too, have many bulges in the middle and a far-from-flat derriere but found this dress to hide them pretty well. I can only suggest going one size up (as long as the top part still fits reasonably well) so the middle part can hang more loosely. I wore this dress constantly on a warm weather cruise to casual dinners where shorts would have been too casual.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mycommonsense Plasticky-feeling fabric, unflattering cut
I tried this dress on as soon as it arrived and felt depressed for the rest of the evening as it accentuated my muffin top and my protruding rear. On the model, all was flat and in my dreams, the dress looked like that on me, too. Alas, if you have a less-than-flat stomach and tush, this dress will tell the world about those figure flaws. It looked dumpy and baggy. The fabric feels like plastic and I'd hate to sweat, perspire, or even glow in it. The blue color is beautiful. Sorry to have to send the dress back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by janeschmidt The greatest!
I have two of these and they are absolutely the best investment I
ever made. I wore one almost every evening in Costa Rica last year and the other every day in Key Largo last week. In addition, last summer I probably wore them 3-5 times a week when at the library or shopping. Comfortable and it refuses to wrinkle. Strike while they still feature them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by nickyp603 Love this dress
I love this dress. It is perfect for throwing on after a bike ride, hike as well as out with flip flops. I can roll this dress in a ball, shake it out and it looks great. Comfortable, wicking fabric. This is not cotton! I also own the fitness pants and skirt. I live in them!
I'd love this dress in other colors, not prints. small fits my 5'4" frame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NYshopper99 very well made dress
this is a very well made dress. the v neck is at just the right depth, not too low. The material is thick, which lays on my body smoothly without showing any panty lines. I am 5'3, 113lbs, don't have much curve, I bought regular xs, the dress hit right at my keen, fits me like a glove. A good everyday dress.
