Rated 4 out of 5áby CJSadie Loved it but....
Loved the quality and look of this dress. However, I am 5'7"tall and a pretty average size 6. The waist is a good 1 to 1- 1/2" above my normal waist line and unlike the model in the picture, it fell just above my knee. I wish this came in a Tall size. And I could wear a wide belt with it but for this price, I expect a perfect fit. Will have to return to my dismay.

Rated 5 out of 5áby PickyChicky Great style, great quality, great dress!
I'll start by saying that this is my first ever clothing purchase from L.L. Bean. I'm a fashion junkie, and Bean's styles aren't usually my cup of tea. But the vintage silhouette of this dress knocked my socks off. The poplin fabric means two things: 1. it's gorgeous and cool, and 2. you will have to iron it. That's life. I would normally order a size 6P (5'3", 125 lbs., 34/28/37) but that size was not available, so I took a chance on an 8P. It's a little roomy in the waist, but when I tie the sash, it's perfect. I will wear this whenever I need to be comfortable and feel gorgeous. I would definitely order another if other prints were available.

Rated 1 out of 5áby GauchoheartBearblood Sizing way off
I am a size 6 Petite in LL Bean pants. I ordered an 8 Petite and 10 Petite after reading the signature styles tend to run smaller. The dresses arrived in the mail and I just put them back into the bags to return. I ordered them on 2 a day for 50%. I was thinking it would be a great deal for a lovely dress. Unfortunately the sizing seems to run off. I could not zip the dress up from the middle of my back up. The neckline runs high and seems to choke me. And the bottom skirt of dress is very poofy.

Rated 3 out of 5áby StaceyJo Way too big and long
I'm the EXACT measurements for a 14 on the signature collection and I'm 5'7". The dress is a solid 2 inches too big all over and falls about 2 inches below my knees. I've never had a regular length dress be too long in my life, so I was pretty shocked. My mom who is a size 18 is going to keep the size 14.
A+ on the pockets though. I LOVE LOVE LOVE dresses with pockets!

Rated 5 out of 5áby HappyShopper2015 So cute!
So this is the cutest dress ever! I actually got the navy one, not the striped one. It is very Audrey Hepburn, and very comfortable. It is casual and relaxed, yet elegant. I called and spoke to a representative about their size guide and I was happy with my purchase. I am a 34" bust, 28" waist, so I wasn't sure if their Regular size 4, 34" Bust, 26 1/2" waist would be right for me, but it turns out I am a LL Bean size 4. FYI, the pockets are sewn shut. Non functioning pockets, so if that is an issue...

Rated 5 out of 5áby Busyoldlady Great Dress
Purchased the multi and red/blue stripe and love them both. I'm 5 ft. 6 ins. 125 lbs. with a 33 bust and large hips and size 6 fit perfect . I find that dresses are cooler in the summer then shorts and a T. Perfect fabric for our hot and humid days.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Rexa Too much skirt
Really lovely fabric, butjust too much fabric below the waist ... Wish it was unlined for a more modern fit.

Rated 2 out of 5áby M612 So pretty, but too poofy
Beautiful fabric, but too much skirt. I have a fairly long torso, and the waist fell about two inches above my natural waist. So the skirt started to poof way too high on me. It ended up being really frumpy in person, especially with a cardigan. I'm 5'4", and it fell just past my knees in size 4.

Rated 5 out of 5áby RIYogaGirl Second Dress in this Style
I really like the Signature Poplin Dresses. I recently ordered the black and white polka dot and can't wait to wear it. Well made and appropriate for work or dinner. I plan on ordering a couple more dresses in other colors to wear to work this summer.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Buffalogal2013 not up to LLBean standards
I usually love LLBean clohes. This was the most diappointing article that I have ever purchased from LLB. The dress looks like a $30 special. It arrived in a mass of wrinkles. I ordered my usual size. It fit across the bust but gaped at the armholes and across my back. The flair of the skirt looked like ti belonged on a little girl. This is definitely going back. Very disappointed.
