Rated 4 out of 5 by MonParapluie Very Nice Fabric, Summery Dress
The waist spared no room for error on me, so I felt it was a bit more snug than I'm used to wearing. I have some armhole gaping on the back. I'm a rectangular shape and I normally don't wear this cut of dress so I'm not used to seeing myself with a full skirt; I think it's cute but I was kind of concerned it looked a little too young for me. I think I can get over that idea with time. The seersucker feels great in the heat and humidity.

I love this dress so much it's ridiculous. It fits perfectly, and is not too long nor too short on my 5'4" frame. I really love the pocket placement which is more to the front of the dress so the sides don't stick out. I'll buy more in different colors if offered.

This is a very beautiful, classic cotton fabric for the summer, with a puckered, crinkled appearance. The dress style is also very beautiful. It has a boat neckline. The darts in the front of the bodice give the dress a fitted look at the waistline, so order a size up if you are thickwaisted. The skirt is full and flared. I found the skirt a little too short (above the knee) for my taste, but there is about a 4 inch hem (3 3/4 inches), so I will take down the hem by the 4 inches or so and use hem tape underneath the dress to create a longer hem line. I especially LOVED the fabric covered belt!

I'm 59, 5'3" 38c bust. I ordered a 12 Petite. The color was a beautiful Aqua, the fabric was nice, but unfortunately would require a slip. The length was perfect, the waist was uncomfortable and sat high on my short waist. The armholes gapped about 3" in the front at the bust, which seems to be the same problem I have with the LLBean sleeveless fitness dress's design. Returning both.

My royal blue (more like navy) seersucker dress came in the mail yesterday and today I wore it to a work related event and got tons of compliments! Love love love this dress and the signature fit was perfect. I am 5'4" and weighs 160 lbs. I usually wear a size 10 or 12 depending on the clothing brand. The 12 fits perfect. Normally armholes in clothes are too tight for me, but this was perfect. I LOVE the pockets too. I wish the other colors were in my size...I would buy them all. Get this dress, you will feel beautiful and sunny wearing it and get many compliments. Love it and highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sharon63 Beautiful Summer Dress
I had been contemplating buying this dress since I first saw it on-line but couldn't justify the price for a dress that had no lining.After looking at it almost on a daily basis I decided to buy it with the stipulation that I could always return it if it wasn't worth the price. I can tell you that this dress is a keeper.I wish that it was lined like some of my other LLBean summer dresses but I love it so much that I'm willing to make an exception. Some reviewers have said that it runs small but size 10 feels like it was tailor made for me. At 5'5"-150# it fits perfect,fitted through the bodice & waist without being tight(36C bust) & a nice A-line flare from the waist down(perfect for my curvy bottom half). The belt fit perfect also,It hits just a tad above the knee. The pockets are at the front hip bone rather than on the side seam so they lay flat instead of sticking out . The seersucker material is soft & the colors are vibrant instead of muted like depicted on-line.This dress can be dressed up with pretty wedge sandals or dressed down casual with slip on sneakers. So happy that I got this dress before it was sold out in my size.

I bought this dress for a upcoming trip to Europe and I can tell it's a great travel dress. It fits well, can easily be dressed up or down, is made of high-quality material, doesn't appear to wrinkle easily, and it's machine-washable. What's not to love?
The design is classic and flattering. I can tell it's going to be a favorite for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Seattlejanie So cute & summery
I love this dress. Lovely seersucker fabric, and the cut seems more forgiving than the Signature poplin dress in navy that I bought recently. (Tried to write a review for that, bet it kept routing me to this more recently purchased signature dress).
I didn't order up to a size 8 in this dress because I wanted a closer fit than what I got in the navy poplin dress & also not to be drowning in plaid at the skirt. It is great, snug at the bust but doesn't squash me. Maybe because the fabric is lighter & less restrictive than the poplin? Not sure, but it works fine & the bust is no more snug in this dress in a 6 than the 8 I ordered in the poplin signature.
The plaid - it is really bright. Brighter than I was expecting from how it looked on my computer monitor. The yellow is strong / bright, so is the orange and green on the dress. So be aware of that if you are wanting a muted plaid seersucker. With both signature dresses I've ordered, the pockets were still sewn shut & I wondered if they were mock pockets until I saw them indeed in place inside of the dress. Easy enough to open up with a pair of scissors but not sure why they are mailed out like this.

I bought this dress in blue two summers ago, and it is a steady favorite. It has also worn extremely well, and looks brand new. The material is exceptionally crisp, and shakes out beautifully after being packed in a suitcase. No ironing necessary! I always just hand wash it and hang it to dry, and it looks perfect.
Every time I wear this dress, I get compliments on it and many questions about where I got it. Summer barbecues, graduations, casual weddings, the office...by changing jewelry or shoes, this dress can be casual or elegant. I love it! If you buy it, you will definitely not regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by llbeanershopaholic My favorite dress of all time!
This is my FAVORITE dress, and I have many llbean dresses. I am 5'6", size 12 across all brands and am DD in the chest area. I ordered 14 regular and the fit was perfect. I ordered up to accommodate my chest area better. It is a BIT on the short side hitting about two inches above the knees, but considering everything else this dress has to offer in style, I overlook it. As a matter of fact, I ordered a second one. When I find something that I like this much, I like to have a spare. It is stylish! I get so many compliments and ladies ask where I got it, truly admired by all. I don't make it look good, it makes me look good! (I think). :)
