Women's Plus Size Sleeveless Solid Cotton Modal Fit and Flare Dress
A real staple!
I love love love this dress! It's so light and airy and perfect for leisure and work!
The fit is comfortable. Not tight nor too wide. I usually wear a 2x in tops and a 3X in bottoms, but for this dress, a 2X is sufficient.
this will be my new summer dress and I know I will wear it to pieces. Too bad that its almost sold out...

Cute but maternity looking
I had such high hopes for this dress (ordered usual size - PL) but I ended up looking very hip-y and 6 months pregnant! Might be better on someone thinner and taller!

Gorgeous jade colour and a lovely dress for warmer days
i absolutely love this dress - beautiful material and a lovely length! A couple of reviewers have noted that the waist band is a little big - this is true but i actually find this a good thing as it hides my chubby bits and doesn't cling. Also very pleased that the waist band actually sits where it is supposed to - I often have difficulty because I have a larger bust.

Nice, but not fitted properly
I vascillated whether to recommend this dress. I'm really not sure. I love the color, the fabric, the basic shape of the dress. i bought it specifically for the wide, high waistband, which i hoped would create a nice hourglass silouette. I usually wear a 14 and got this in a large. The top fit fine (I don't mind wearing a cami underneath if it's too low-cut, or pinning it) But the waistband is too loose and defeats the purpose of a well-fitted waist that flows smoothly into a full skirt skimming over the hips. It just looks the waistband has worn out -- it ruins the whole fit-and-flare aspect of the dress. I'm considering having it tailored, maybe making the waist somewhat elastic, because I love everything else about it, but that just adds to the overall cost. Lands End, work on your tailoring for women's dresses.

I love the material of this dress. From the front, the dress fit me really nicely. From the side, though, I realize that the dress size runs a little big. I am 5'2" and 132 lbs and ordered a petite small. The dress has a high waist and is especially flattering for those of us who are indeed high-waisted (you know who you are!). From the side, though, I'm paranoid that it may sort of have a 'pregnant look' for me because I wanted the high waist to be more cinched. (This is why I think it runs big!)
However, the bust has really nice, full coverage for someone small-boobed like me (36B), so I feel like I could wear this to work if I wanted to.

Perfect for travel.
I just received this dress and was thrilled when I tried it on. It came out of the package wrinkle free! I had read previous reviews that it runs a little large. I usually wear a size 20W so I ordered the 1x (a size smaller). It fits perfectly and hits at the knee (not above) and I am 5'5".

Very low cut. Armholes too large; they gape.
I'm busty, so the very low cut means this lightweight dress is suitable only for a summer evening event. I don't go to many dressy places or events in the summer. Also, the armholes are much too large, a fault that is common for LE sleeveless dresses, and means a return of this one.
That said, it's a very flattering style. I just wish it fit me better. I usually wear a 1X or regular XL with a flared skirt and sleeves, so from now I'll stick with those styles.

Good basic dress
Bought two of these dresses and they fit true to size, took the green on on my last cruise and wore it on formal nights with some dressy jewellery. It is flattering if you are a bigger girl like me. I ordered the extra large and I am an Australian size 18. It didn't crease in the suitcase so I was very impressed about that, washed well and am looking forward to summer so I can wear it again.

Perfect for Every Day Wear
I participated in a project where I had to wear the same dress every day for a month. I chose this dress in Red. With every day wearing, washing every other day and even throwing in the dryer most days because I had to throw it on to rush out the door, the dress looks as good as it did when I pulled it out of the bag. It does run a bit large so I had to take the shoulders up, but I can wear it without a camisole underneath which is nice to just throw it on and go. Very flattering, hangs nicely, wears great, no thinning or pilling. So glad I can still wear the dress after wearing for a month and it still looks as good as the other hanging in my closet with only 4 days of wear. I'm looking at yet another color.

Perfect "put on and go" dress
This dress has a very flattering fit on me. I have an hourglass shape and it really lives up to its "fit & flare" name. The pleats give it a very put-together look, so even though it is a knit dress, it looks very nice with the right jewelry. I wore this to work with a cardigan and it was very appropriate. It does run on the big side, I would order a size down. I am typically a medium and the medium fit, but is definitely loose. It is OK because of the amount of stretch, but I am ordering a 2nd color in small.
