Women's 3/4-sleeve Knit Faux Wrap Drapey Ponté Dress
A great looking dress!
I bought this one in red, green and black.....LOVE IT! I am petite and curvy and this is THE dress for me! I was pleasantly surprised about how thick and substantial the material was - usually these types of dresses are flimsy and show every lump and bump....lol... not this one.... An excellent "go-to" dress that can be dressed up or down. I usually wear and size medium (10-12) - as recommended I went down a size to small and it was perfect.

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.

o.k. but not great
I ordered this in the eggplant color and that was very nice. I ordered down because the reviews said it ran small. The PXS I ordered was o.k. but not fabulous. The waist was very high and it was really hard to tell what to do with the tie belt. Overall not good enough to keep.

lovely dress, but...
I really enjoy wearing this dress. It fits nicely and drapes well, too. I have it in the royal blue color and frequently get compliments on it.
Fabric feels soft & substantial, coverage is nice. Not 'fussy' attire.
I am slightly surprised / disappointed at how quickly the fabric began to pill though, especially in areas where the fabric tends to rub together more often (under arms, etc. )
I'd expect that from a dress that retails for its current sale price - but not from a dress that retailed near $65 at the start.
Keep working on restoring your quality back to its former glory, Lands' End.

Beautiful & Flattering
Very nice fabric, beautiful red color, well made & a very flattering design -- Love this dress!! I'm 5'8", short waisted & fairly small across the bust. I have trouble with dresses because if they fit me from the waist up, they're usually too tight through my hips &/or way too short. This size was a Regular & fits perfect. The length is just what is pictured. What a find! It'll be perfect for travel, although the knit is on the heavy side.

Love this dress, so much I bought two.
I have bought many things from LE over the years and found that I wear the same size in all products. This is nice since LE is only a mail order to Canada. It is super helpful to know that the sizing is consistent on all products I have received to date.
I saw this dress and loved that it came in a tall size. I find most dresses are made for woman on an average around 5'4" in height. Since I am 5'9" regular dress lengths tend to be a bit too short for me to wear to the office. I purchased this dress in black and in malachite (the green). I received complements on both, but with the green one I received way more attention...if you don't like attention stick with the more traditional colours.
The dress fits perfectly and the length hits just below my knee, perfect. I recommended this dress to many friends and they purchased it too. Material is weighty, but not heavy and I love that it looks like a wrap dress, but you don't have to worry about the dress opening up the way traditional wrap dresses do.

*Love* this dress, just wish I'd bought more colors!
I bought this dress in malachite and absolutely LOVE it. I am also petite and curvy and this is a very flattering dress -- it emphasizes the good areas and hides the areas I want to hide. It is nipped in right at my narrowest point, almost like an empire-waist fit, and is the perfect length for my height and comfort level. It is also just low-cut enough, but not too low-cut.
I wore this dress to a party and received tons of compliments. One woman said "I WANT that green dress! Love the green!"
It is very rare to find a dress in this color. It is gorgeous.
This is an awesome dress. I only wish I had bought it in blue and black ... Lands End, PLEASE bring this dress back next year! I will buy it!

I purchased this dress in black and orchid, and both are beautiful and comfy! I'm a curvy pear-shaped gal, size 6-8 in Lands' End dresses, and I found these dresses to be very flattering. I appreciate the 3/4 length-sleeves, for those chilly places! Many thanks for offering these ponte dresses in a drapey or a-line style...the fabric is a nice medium weight, and, when combined with that shape, is forgiving where it needs to be! Would love for a deep red with blue (not orange) undertones.
