Women's Short Sleeve Cotton Modal Wrap Dress
This is perfect go to dress!
I needed a travel dress to take to Europe this summer and this wrap dress is perfect! I got the red, it is a gorgeous strawberry color, not true red and not true cherry either.....a blended color that is fresh and looks good on someone who usually does not wear red (me)! I am generally selecting orangey colors, but this one very pretty. Fabric is very nice and good quality. I got a small and falls just to the knee and wraps great with no gapping at the v cross. The tie was fine being u should wrap it around as expected and tie in a bow or leave in a knot to hang! Hope LE will do more colors!

Perfect all occasion dress
This dress was a great find! I bought it to take with me on a recent cruise to Hawaii. I had been looking for a special occasion or cocktail dress to wear for the "formal" nights in the dining room, but had trouble finding anything that was age appropriate or flattering to my stocky, 59 year old body without being frumpy. I bought this dress thinking it would be good to wear for the more casual nights, but was pleasantly surprised to find that when dressed up with jewelry and cute shoes, it worked just fine for the formal nights. The fabric drapes nicely, the fit is very flattering, and the fact that it has sleeves is an added bonus. It even got approval from my daughter, who is my biggest fashion critic. I bought it in blue, which is a beautiful color and really makes my blue eyes stand out. I am 5'3", 144 lbs., and following the size chart recommendation, I ordered the petite medium. It fits perfectly and offers plenty of coverage. I will be wearing this dress again to a wedding in a couple of weeks, and I know it will be my "go to" dress all summer long for events both casual and dressy. Best of all, you can't beat the price! I highly recommend it.

My new favorite go-to dress!!!
Wow! What a dress! I am an elementary school teacher and I look for clothing that is business casual, yet comfortable, and a great value. This dress is it! I can dress it up with heels for an evening out, or wear it to work with flat sandals. The hem is perfect, it hits me just above my knee cap, and the material is soft yet durable. I ordered the dress in blue and loved it so much that I ordered the red one too! I always get compliments when I wear them! Thanks Lands End for such a great product and a great price!

The Perfect Dress!
I ordered this dress in both green and blue and both are stunning! I was planning to keep only one but decided to keep both. I am 5' and 101 lbs. I ordered the green in xxs and the blue in xs, both petite and they fit exactly the same. I plan on ordering the black and I hope the polka dor version will be available again. This dress is easy to dress up or go casual. It also hides the tummy I have after the birth of my children. Don't hesitate if your're thinking about this dress, I think it would flatter most women, and returns are so easy if it doesn't work out.

The dress ran a little big in sizing.
The dress ran a little big in sizing. It washed up really well and retained its shape and color. I received several compliments while wearing the dress.

Very cute style and easy to wear. I'm 5'4", 150 lbs, 38DD and I got the medium petite. I do need to wear a camisole underneath it, but that's pretty much par for the course with any wrap style. Also, it did shrink in the wash so it's definitely shorter than when I first got it. Probably won't be wearing it to work, but it's great for summer weekends.

Perfect fit and very comfortable. Love that it can be dressed up or dressed down.

I loved this dress in the catalog and was hoping it would be a cute dress to wear to work. Overall, I was very disappointed. The tie belt is the only thing that holds this dress together, and no matter how I tied it, the top was always gaping open. The sleeves were also very little-girlish. As a beach cover-up, it'd be great; as a work dress, it stinks. I returned it.

Mushroom is the New Black
I am a student teacher and bought this dress for an easy choice for class. I am absolutely in love with it. I am 5'10 and 180 with broad shoulders and muscular arms. I usually wear a size 12 in LE and ordered a medium in mushroom. The color is wonderful and goes with EVERYTHING! And the size is just right. Usually short sleeves that have a band around the bottom do not fit around my arms, but the stretch in the cotton is just right. The tie hits me right at my waist. I do wish it was less stretchy as I have to tie it pretty tight to keep it closed. There is plenty of fabric on both ends of the wrap. I haven't had a Marlin Monroe problem yet! And the length of the dress comes right to the top of my knees. I love to wear it with a pair of black espadrilles, some cute earrings, and a chunky necklace. And I always get compliments from my students when I wear it! Please, keep this one around for a while, LE!

Really great dress!
Ordered this in the blue polka dot. Loved it so much I ordered 4 other colors. Receive rave reviews from family (and total strangers) every time I wear one. The green is a particular favorite, although I was leary of the color at first. Great find!
