Women's 3/4-sleeve Knit Faux Wrap Drapey Ponté Dress
Size runs big
Love the quality of construction & weight of fabrics
Usually wear 12/14 in dresses; medium in this dress is a bit large

Super cute dress
I love this dress. The fabric turned out thicker than other jersey dresses I have purchased from Land's End. It is flattering on and don't have to iron. No complaints here!

Betwixt and Between
Beautiful dress, material, styling, but the small was too small and the medium was too large for me. Otherwise, I would recommend this for someone who might be better served from a more accurate fit.

Too short, a bit blah.
I had high hopes for this frock, based on the good reviews. The main issue was the slightly out-of-date length: I am 5'7" and I found it a bit too short -- that sort of nineties length just above the knee. Really, it should hit just below the knee (or even lower, to be more fashion-forward, tho I don't expect fashion-forward-ness from Lands End, so . . .well, maybe in future if I'm tempted to buy a Lands End dress I'll buy the "tall" size). I'm a 38"D bra size, generally a standard size 14, but it gapped over the boobs. The material was okay, I guess. Mid-weight. The sleeves were fine, trim in a nice-ish way. I'd have sent it back, but I didn't have time to find a replacement dress for New Year's Eve, so I wore it. Unfortunately. I guess I can't send it back now, and don't really want to wear it again. Maybe I'll try to give it away to a friend who's a bit shorter, or who doesn't mind the mumsy 1990s length.

Fabulous look and feel!
This dress has style and comfort all "wrapped up" into one. The ponté fabric is incredible! The weight of the fabric is warm enough to wear in the fall and winter months. The fabric's texture perfectly smooths the shape of your silhouette and contours nicely to your natural curves. This dress would flatter many figures. Plus, I love how versatile the style of this dress is. It easily dresses up or down and provides the perfect canvas for many different looks.

I received my lovely red dress in the mail yesterday, and was absolutely thrilled as to how great this dress fit me! As others have stated, it is a thicker fabric but yet comfortable and feels light. I live in western Michigan and I find that this time of year and during this unseasonably cold climate right now that I would like to wear something to work other than pants. I am petite in frame, a whopping 5 ft tall and about 115 pounds. I have shopped at a major competitor for many years and started to get frustrated with the way things weren't fitting me right! But every outfit I have bought from Land's End has been absolutely wonderful. I loved the fit of this dress that I immediately got on line and ordered the black one. Land's End, thank you for making such a beautiful dress at such an affordable price. If I could give it ten stars, I would!

Good Winter Dress!
Cute Little Black Dress! Heavy Knit fabric, good knee length. The crossover adds interest. Can dress up or down easily. The only problem I have is that the neck line is a bit low and the crossover is not sewn together on the top, which can cause two problems, one it doesn't stay in place and two the hem from the under layer can be seen across the chest, might fit me a bit snug on the chest and thus causing this problem. Will keep the dress and fix the top problem with a few stiches

Great fall/winter dress!
Living in Ottawa, Canada the fall and winters can be chilly, but I hate hiding in pants for 6 months. This dress is snugly warm and comfy, but I look supper hot in it! It's a little big on the top for me, but that's because I'm bigger on the bottom than the top; if I were bigger on the top this dress would fit me like a glove. I washed it in gentle with cold water, and the red is as vibrant as the day it came out of the package.

This is such a gorgeous dress! I'm always worried when I order a garment online that it's not going to fit right. But this dress fits beautifully. I'm 5'8" 150 lbs, and I normally wear a size Large. But after reading the reviews about it running large, I ordered a Medium and it fits perfectly. The cut of the dress is so slimming and flattering. I know I'm going to get a lot of use out of it. I came back to order another one in the same color (Black), and one in Red. :)

Fabric Pills Quickly
It speaks well for the fit and style of this dress that I have two of these in spite of the huge problem of fabric pilling. The fabric is really poor quality. It pilled on the first day that I wore it, and it's only worsened since then. I use my sweater shaver regularly, but I keep wearing the dresses anyway and it just gets worse every time. Right now, I've relegated these dresses to the back of the closet until I have time to sit down and work on them, even though I know they'll just get bad again.
If this dress was announced with improved fabric, I would buy it again.
