Many months ago I purchased this dress in Black. It has hung in my closet because I don't normally find dresses comfortable for day to day wear. However, I recently needed something quick and easy and so I reached for this dress. I was so impressed by the comfort of this garment. I can't believe that I let this dress hang there all this time. I'm currently waiting on this same dress in a different color. Love it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Swift I LOVE this dress!
I bought this dress last year, before LL Bean offered it in petite, and like others mentioned I found it a bit low cut but liked it well enough with a cami to keep it. I was thrilled to see LL Bean brought it back this year and made a petite fit, as well as offering it in a lovely, flattering small scale polka dot pattern. The new fit is PERFECT!

Review for item number TK281573 True Navy knit dress size Large. I thought this was going to be a red, white and blue dress- it is not. The "true navy" is more of a faded blue that almost looks purple to me. The white is a Cream type color. The red is a shade of pinkish orange. I was disappointed because none of the navy type shoes that I own will match it because it is such an odd blue color- and even white shoes do not look good with it because the white is actually a creamish color. I am keeping it though because it feels very silky and comfortable- and I love the fact that it has short sleeves to cover the tops of my arms. It hangs low and wide open in the front/chest area so I have to pin it together and to my bra- but I have done that for other similar cut dresses from LL BEAN and they never get holes in the fabric. I like the length of the dress- but am very disappointed in the colors and how it looks faded upon arrival. I took a picture of the dress right out of the bag and placed it against a bright white comforter, a bright red shirt, and my LL BEAN striped Navy bathing suit so that you could see what I am talking about. This is prior to washing for the first time. Notice how it looks faded. The only reason I am keeping it is because it looks good on me and was a decent price- otherwise, it would have gone back.

This is a nice little dress. As expected. The size was true, the fabric draped nicely and I like the color and print. I would recommend this dress.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kiwiexpat Not for Large Bust
Regarding this dress, if you have a large bust the word "Jersey" will not apply to the fabric so much as to the bovine (as in cow) look this dress imparts. The fabric was soft and seemed to drape well but the cross over neckline was much lower than expected. The clinging fabric made me look even larger. I live out of the country or I would return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BirdLady Great Dress but color not as expected
I just received this dress in the true navy which is the plaid version. The picture looks like it is a navy and red plaid with a little bit of white but the red turns out to be pink. There was no mention of this in the description of the dress. Otherwise, this is my favorite style of dress. The fabric and drape is sensational - just didn't care for the pink in the plaid - really would have preferred red, so am returning it. LLBean, how about more color and pattern choices for summer?

I love this dress! The drape of the fabric is so soft and nice - very feminine. I ordered the ember color in my usual size (small petite) and it fit perfectly, it won't even need shortening. Haven't laundered it yet but in another review, someone said it shrank a bit in the length, so may not put it in the dryer. LLBean, how about more choices in color and cute prints!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Snaz Most attractive dress ever!
I usually wear a large but after reading the reviews I couldn't decide whether to order L or M. I ordered both and am glad I did. The M fits like a glove. I am 5'5'' so I ordered petite. It hits right at the knee. I have recently lost 100 lbs and my son was here when I tried it on. He said Mom you look so TINY. Who me? Great buy and a great price. Can't wait for spring.

I'm 5'7" and this fit great until I put it in the dryer, by mistake. It's too short for my taste now so I'm donating it to charity and reordering the teal. I am small busted and modest so wear this with a cami and it works for many occasions. Hoping to see more colors and prints soon!
