I purchased the same style dress last year in red color, it has been wonderful. This year I bought another one in blue floral pattern. It is same fantastic in term of style, workmanship, fabric and comfort level when wearing it.
To top it. This week at work I was stopped by an unknown male coworker complementing "pretty dress". It was surely a surprise, as we are in an extremely conservative, male dominated engineering area, male coworkers are indifferent about others' appearance.

I purchased this dress in a Medium (Black) and was very pleased with the fit. I could have probably gone to a small and still felt comfortable. It has a wide flat "cumberbund" and the skirt falls nicely hiding any lumps. The neckline is a bit low but appropriate for evening wear. The material is soft, fluid and lightweight. I would definitely order true to size, and if in doubt size down as the fit is generous especially on the lower half. I am 5ft 6in and 143 pounds. Usually wear an 8.

I have always enjoyed wearing easy care dresses in summer. I have some I like, some I don't. THIS dress is my favorite of all time! I am 55 years old, and do not really have the upper arm area that I feel comfortable showing out in public...I would bet LOTS of women would agree with this. These sleeves are just perfect. I highly recommend this dress, and I am begging LL Bean to carry this in more colors. I would buy one in every color offered, so please add more in this style. I get so many compliments when I wear this dress, and we all love to feel pretty.

Was hoping to wear this dress to a summer wedding. The print and fabric were nice but the fit was funny and not very flattering. Too long (I'm 5'2/120 lbs) and low waisted. I could have had it tailored but was out of time. Had to return the dress.

I ordered the black dress in a medium, which is my usual size. The fabric is soft and drapes nicely. I plan on wearing this to work with flats, but it would also look nice for a dinner date.

I had quite the time trying to even buy one in my size as this dress was so very popular,with its pretty dots....I watched every day and managed to secure the Coral Rose and the Navy in a medium Petite.It is long on me as I am 5`2",slender and with a bust line.I am having it taken up a few inches as it looked frumpy too long on me! The fabric is soft and feels so good on my skin,the 'dots' are adorable and youthful and the style is so feminine and the dress drapes beautifully on one.It is everything one would love in a dress,cool,delicate,one feels simply terrific in this dress.Oh,yes,there is a slight hint of cleavage but nicely displayed and rather desirable for even an older woman! The colours are vibrant and so is the workmanship of the dress! I thank you once again L.L.Bean and the great help I had from the wonderful person on the phone .I Love It !!!

I got the black knit dress in a Large Petite. I'm 60 yrs. old, 5'3" & measure 40-33-42. When it arrived today I tried on the dress & was considering sending it back for a Medium Petite. It seemed a tad big, but after modeling it for a couple of minutes I felt cooler than in my maxi skirt & tee shirt & didn't want to take it off. It worked well with my embellished flip flops on this hot summer day in Ga. The sleeve length is between a short sleeve & a cap sleeve. The petite hits just below my knees, it has a pretty drape & is super comfortable. I was hoping for a little more stability in the fabric, but the way it performed in this heat says a lot. It's so soft & airy you'll hardly know you have anything on.

I usually purchase this dress each year and this year I bought it in Sea Grass. A perfect traveling dress, I paired it with an LL Bean jacket in olive and it was gorgeous!! I am 5'4" and I ordered the Petite in Medium. I think it is extremely flattering and pair it with a scarf if needed.

This is the second year in a row that I have tried to find a comfortable knit dress from LL Bean only to discover that what I
like is unavailable. It is only May and as another reviewer pointed out, it has been cold in the East and until recently not weather that would lead one to look for spring clothes. Another reviewer mentioned that she is tall and the dress is too short (short women seem to find it too long.) I'm 5' 10" and in my 70's. It would be so nice to find a comfortable dress like this that would cover my no longer young knees. It seems that every longer dress has no sleeves. LL Bean, how about coming to the rescue of women such as i?
