I was a little hesitant to order this dress, based on the reviews to size down. I'm a curvy size 12 and I usually wear a size large. I sized down to a medium and I'm glad I did. This dress is so comfortable, but very casual. It's not something I would wear to work, even if I dressed it up. It's the kind of dress I would throw on to run errands or use as a swimsuit cover. I gave it four stars because the fabric is a little on the thin side for me.
Better than last year
I purchased two of these dresses last year. They were 100% cotton. Comfortable but EXTREMELY casual looking, especially after a few washes. This year I purchased another one in black. I was pleasantly surprised to see the addition of rayon to the cotton. Hopefully it will help it look better after washing. I also sized down this year which looks much better. The neckline isn't so low and it fits more like the picture instead of just hanging on me like a sack.
I love the material and the color(Orchid Haze). I usually wear a medium, but based on other reviews, ordered both a medium and a small. They are going back. The small fit, but it is shapeless. When I tried it on a friend said "it does nothing for your figure". The fit reminded me of the 'house dresses' my grandmother used to wear.
I tried this dress on and the first thing my husband said was "That dress makes you look skinny." Needless to say, I kept it. I usually wear a medium, but based on other reviews, I did order a small and it fit just right. Can't wait for warmer weather to wear it.
Bought a 2nd one!!!
I first purchased this dress in "leaf" which looks just like the color on my screen. (really more of an "Army green") Unfortunately I got tea tree oil stains on the dress and thought it was ruined. So I ordered another one but in "cyan" which does NOT look just like the color on my screen. I was expecting a deeper, more vivid blue and the dress I received looks paler and more "washed out"I still like it but those who want the blue they see on the screen should be aware. I still think the dress is pricey BUT I must admit that I'm wearing the heck out of it so I think I'll get my $$$ worth. The sizing is consistent. The blue one fits just like the green one. They DO SHRINK after a cold water wash and dryer on LOW heat. They also FADE a bit with each wash. But considering the comfort and wearability, I will most likely buy one more IF they go on SALE at the end of the season. Oh, FYI: I soaked the green dress in Stain Solver oxygen bleach for 6 hours and it completely removed the
The fabric on this dress is excellent. It feels like wearing a medium weight super soft favorite T-shirt. Neckline is a little low but looks okay with a scooped neck T-shirt tank peeking out underneath. I'm 5'6" 140 lbs. and ordered the Large because, according to the size chart, my 39"(38D) bustline would not fit into a Medium even though I usually wear a size 10-12. So the Large in this dress was quite loose on me until I washed it. IT SHRINKS. Good for me but not good if the dress just fits before washing. Even after shrinking the dress hit my knees about the same as in the picture. The back of the dress hits the crease line in the back of my knee. I like this dress but it's too pricey to order another one.
I purchased this item in a small/coral color. I would normally wear an M, but the S fits perfectly, so, this item runs big. Love the color, but it already faded a bit with one wash. That's a downer. But, it fits comfortably. It hits at the knee, which is a fine length for me. I am 5' 4"" tall and weigh 134, with a somewhat athletic body. I would purchase another. Yes, I would recommend it to others with the cautions of sizing and color-fading as listed above.
Bought this dress for a cruise. It is perfect. Pop it on to go to breakfast, pop it on over a bathing suit to go to the pool, pop it on for the tours-It is so comfy I think I might even be able to sleep in it! It is a little low, but does not gap so I think OK. As others have said a little pricey even on sale. But I'm going to wear this one to death and look for more sales.
A must for your wardrobe!
I LOVE this dress so much I bought it in three colors! It is the perfect travel dress, packable, and easily dressed up or down. The fabric is soft and not to thin. The colors are extremely true to the pictures on the website. I get a compliment whenever I wear one of them. I wear an L or XL, depending on the cut. In this dress I took the XL and it was perfect.
THIS DRESS IS EXACTLY AS PICTURED! SIZING RUNS THE SAME AS EILEEN FISHER & OTHER QUALITY BRANDS. LOVE THE FABRIC.
Neckline way too deep
I really wanted to like this dress. I liked the fabric and comfort of it. But the neckline was cut so low, I thought it looked ridiculous. It must be made for very tall people with a lot of space between shoulders and bust. Or for people who want to wear a camisole or a big necklace every time they wear this to fill in the huge open chest area. Not for me, so I sent it back.
As another reviewer said, I really wanted to like this dress. The verdigris color was great and so was the feel of the material. Fit everywhere but the top. It gaped and the cut is such that another top underneath does not work. Had to return.
I bought this in olive and love the fabric and style of this dress. It's a little big on top (the neckline is lower than I like), but I saw someone else's review that it'll shrink in the wash, so I expect it will fit perfectly then.
Great Dress....Sizing Crazy!!
The dress itself is perfect...exactly as pictured. Good quality medium weight material, very well made. Color is also as pictured. However...the sizing is way off!! I wear an XL(14-16) tee shirt, so I ordered the same. The dress is HUGE!!!!! I considered having it altered, but it would have to be completely remade! The dress is expensive for what it is, so rather than sinking any more money into it, I had to return it. This is not the first sizing issue I've had with this company. Such a shame....
Great Summer Basic
Cute and comfy dress...and the pockets are a nice touch! I'm 5'6"" 142 lbs and the small fit nicely.
So darn cute!
I usually wear a size 4 or 6 in a dress so I ordered the xs. It fits perfectly! I may have squealed when I tried it on. It's that perfect. It's just so darn cute! I like that it is fitted and short, but not too tight in the bum. I love the pigment dyed colors and the comfy cotton material. I agree that it would make a great swim suit cover up too. Throw it on, grab a pair of sandals and you're good to go.
East Troy, WI
This dress is so comfortable and can be worn with sandles or dressed up with heals. I receive compliments each time I wear it.
Loved the dress, but...
Really wanted this dress to work, but I'm small, especially on top, and the neckline, even on the X-small, gaped. Tried wearing a camisole, but the neckline still didn't work. Ended up donating it to a local charity, so hope someone is happy.
Love the fit. True to size. Easy to just throw on and go. My idea of the perfect summer dress!
I love the styling of this dress. (I wish more dresses had pockets!) The neckline is a little lower than I would optimally like, but I can live with it. The fabric seems nice, on the thinner side (good for hot weather). I've laundered it once so far. I don't know how it will wear over time. I agree with the reviewer who said that that it's a little pricey.

Size Advice Misleading
I love this shoe and already had several pairs.When ordering more colors I followed the adviceand ordered 1/2 size up (as well as my usual size), even though my old shoes fit just fine. I thought perhaps a new lot was running small.No! I had to return the larger shoes and payreturn shipping because I took the advice given.
Green NOT Grey
LOVE this shoe! Have a pair in camel and love them. Ordered the "grey" and was super disappointed. Color is sage greeny, NOT grey. Will be returning. But highly recommend the camel. Mine fit true to size.
GREEN not GREY
A nice well-made shoe, but what planet calls this color grey? The grey shoes I ordered are in fact GREEN. They are a weird sage green. They look absolutely nothing like the icy grey in the photo. Buyer beware. Mine are going back.
New Favorite shoes
These shoes run a little small, BUT I feel like I could have gotten away with my normal 7 and just breaking them in with socks. The problem with that is I would have had to wait until Dec when the 7 came back into stock. After seeing these shoes and putting them on, no way I wanted to wait that long! They are super comfy, the color is perfect, they are my new favorite shoe.
Expensive Indoor Slip Ons
I had great expectations of this purchase but it proved disappointing. These cute shoes are so thin, the comparison is akin to Flip Flops in support. They remind me of a nice pair of gloves. The sizing was fine at a 1/2 1/2 size larger, but my regular 6 1/2 would have been fine.
Hits the mark with craftsmanship
These shoes are not only comfy and versatile, but are also well made. The padding on the insole is remarkably comfortable and the stitching detail is superb. Great shoe all around. I did have to order a half-size up as suggested and the color of the camel is more of a taupe than the ruddy color shown. They are a must for any wardrobe and I will be ordering another color soon.
I should have read the reviews
Everyone said these shoes are wonderful but run small. I should have read the reviews, b/c they do, indeed, run at least a half size small.
I love these shoes. They feel like slippers but are very sturdy in spite of the soft leather. Hoping they go on sale so I can buy another pair in a different color.
Nice little shoe
Like this shoe very much - light weight and fits well. My only concern would be how well it will stand up to lots of use. No support at all so will be using strictly for looks and not for long haul trudging I'm thinking. Okay by me!
West Coast Canada
I ordered this shoe and per previous comments, I ordered a half size up. Perfecto! Only problem? The camel is shown to be a more orange-y color in the picture and it's definitely a camel. I do love the shoe anyway and I know the color will become richer with age-just not the color shown in the photo.
