Rated 5 out of 5áby leanBeanwearer Comfort and style
I ordered the Teal print in size 2 and 4 Regular as I was unsure which would fit better. I'm 5' 6, and am a slim build. The dresses arrived this afternoon. I tried the size 4 first, it fit but there was a gap at the back neckline, so will return it, I then tried on the size 2 and it fit beautifully, very comfortable, very flattering! I love the style and the material! I'd buy another print.

Rated 4 out of 5áby GoneWest Worth the wait
I basically had to stalk this dress (the navy with red stripes) because it quickly sold out in my size. It finally came in the mail today, and I love it! I am 5'5 about 140 lbs, athletic build, and I ordered it in a size 6. It fit just about perfectly--if anything it is maybe a tiny bit big--but I think if I sized down it would be uncomfortable. What other folks have said about the gaping in the back is accurate, but the dress is nice enough that it is probably worth getting it altered, and really it's not that noticeable. Basically this is a totally classic dress with a retro feel--that was approved both by my fashionista sister and my sweetie.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Citychick99 Classic dress
This dress fits well. I am well endowed with smaller hips and it looks Sophia Loren chic. The belt itself is almost worth the purchase because it's the perfect size polka dotted belt/scarf/head band. I'm trying it for a trip overseas soon. I think it will work in a plethora of places because it's flattering and elegant enough for dinner, but with a flat sandal it's perfect to sight see. I got the 10; I'm 5'5 140 pounds with a FULL chest.

Sorry, LLBean. As much as I love the Signature line this dress fit really goofy as other reviewers have claimed. Beautiful fabric and style. The quality of construction was great except for the big huge gap at the top. Sent it back.

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...

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.
