Women's Short Sleeve Solid Pique Polo Dress
I have been thinking about getting the polo dress for years. I am 5'3" and a plus size so I thought it would just look like a bag. I have no waist (I am an apple) so belting it wasn't really an option. I finally ordered one and WOW! I just fell in love. It looks so preppy. I will definitely be ordering more.

Perfect for any occasion
I bought 2 of these dresses last spring, bought 2 more this spring and will probably buy another. This dress is flattering, keeps its shape and is colorfast through many washes. Looks good with wedged or flat sandals and even flip flops. I love it!

Perfect Polo Dress
I have purchased several polo dresses from other retailers in the past, but none of them were quite right. This is perfect! I love the weight and fit. It just skims the body and is flattering without being too tight. The weight of the fabric is perfect so the dress can be worn on its own in the summer or with a cardigan in the spring. I am 5'3" and the petite dress hits right at the knee. The sleeves are also a nice flattering length. Love, love this dress. I have it in 3 colors.

Perfect Dress - Lands End Stock Up!!1
I have hesitated to buy a polo dress for years because so often these dresses are shlumpy and shapeless, making me look like I'm wearing a big shirt instead of a dress. This one is PERFECT!!!
I LOVE THIS DRESS!!
Lands End - what is up with the lack of colors and low stock? I want this dress in many colors!!! also, please lose the chest pocket. It can be unflattering and I can't wear pins because of it.
I'm sort and - we'll go with - curvy - I look GREAT in this dress, I'd buy several more if the color/ size were available - this is an issue with many items LE, please fix it!!

This dress seems to be good quality. However I didn't care for the fit on me. It looks like a sack. Putting a belt on it just cuts it in half. It needs some shaping darts and trim to perk it up. Also, it was too long - below my knees, which I do not like. This tends to be a common problem for me, as I am only 5' tall.
I would try a medium, but it is all sold out. I usually wear lands end petite large, but I have recently lost some weight so maybe that is why it is big.
I just can't recommend this dress.

Wonderful casual dress for summer
The color and fit are both as pictured and described. At 5'1" the dress is just to my knee. I would have liked at least another inch in length so adding a belt would not make the dress too short for me. I am still adapting to the the shorter sleeve and shoulder style. It looks really smart on younger ladies but not so much on older ladies. Nonetheless, the dress is easy and looks great for most summer events. I refrained from an excellent rating due to the length, the cut of the shoulders and the sleeve length.

Great casual summer dress
Originally I ordered the Medium petite, however despite my 5'0" it was much too short! Exchanged for a Medium regular and length about 1" below my knee--perfect length. Fabric is great as is the color. Great summer dress.

Wonderful all occasion dress!
This dress is very comfortable and is suitable for many occasions. It is flattering and looks nice for going out. The fabric is soft and washes well. It did not seem to shrink much. It falls right at the knee and I am 5'6". Love this dress!

Very nice but fix that collar
I'm a petite and purchased the 2-4, which worked out very nicely for me. In general, I'm a size 3, petite. I think this is a nice, run-around dress. The quality and material weight was good, though I wouldn't mind a tiny bit more weight to the material. The one thing I didn't like was the strip of whitish, interfacing material on the collar - which shouldn't be showing and detracts from the quality-look. Also, my personal opinion is that the accent pocket rides high and looks a little silly - sort of like a handkerchief purposely showing in a man's suit jacket (old fashion and takes away from the tailored, quality appearance) - however, a small point. I'm generally pleased and impressed with the good value.

This dress fits as I expected from the picture. Easy to wear and not too tight or loose in all the right areas
