Women's 3/4-sleeve Pattern Ponté Faux Wrap Dress
My favorite of all my Land's End wrap dresses
I own four Lands End wrap dresses and this one is by far my favorite. Land's End has perfected the design (fit is spot on), it's very comfortable, AND it's the prettiest of the bunch. The picture doesn't do it justice. Brown is more prominent in the design. It looks great with brown boots, pumps, or flats. I rarely take the time to write reviews, but this dress deserves high praise.

Pretty winter dress
I am 5'7" with measurements 34-29-35, and I bought a size XS. It's a bit gappy at the bust if I lean forward, but I like that it hits me below the knee. I've never worn a wrap-style dress before this one, and now I can understand what all the fuss about them being flattering is about.
My favorite thing about this dress is that it has both black and brown in the print, so I can wear it with either black or brown footwear. I've mostly paired it with riding boots and a dark green scarf.
I haven't washed it yet, so I can't vouch for how it will stand up to that.

I am a size 16 and usually get a 0X but instead got an XL in the regular size, its a little bit snug in the shoulders and across the belly but nothing that would prevent me from wearing it. The brown was an unexpected surprise, I thought it was black and gray, but have learned the Lands End photographers seem to use a special lens that changes colors, hence the red and blue dress I got last summer that was really orange and blue! But regardless, the shape and fabric are very flattering. A camisole was required to provide a work appropriate level of chest coverage, I do have a large bust so that's not unusual.

Fits really well-great value
Wish the fabric were better quality but I love the way it fits!

Beautiful faux wrap dress. Great print and fabric not too clingy and has nice drape. My only complaint is that the belt is too long. I typically order a small in LEs dresses but sized up to Medium as advised by other reviewers and it fit perfectly.
I wish Lands End would offer this style in more prints.

This is my forth dress from Lands End and my second wrap dress. They fit great and look wonderful. I will say that this wrap dress was a little more snug than the last one (which I still wear, so it's not me changing size...). In person, the brown pattern between the black pattern shows up more than it does in the main photo.

Runs very small
I wanted to like this dress; the online picture is so cute. However, it runs very small and is particularly short waisted. Although it did not work for me, I still recommend it if you are short waisted and not quite so apple shaped as I am. The dress is well-made-- the fabric is nice and heavy, the pattern matching is meticulous, and the colors are attractive(although I could not tell whether it was black or dark navy).

Tailored to a T
I was attracted to the pattern immediately - black and light brown hounds-tooth plaid on an ivory background. A very tailored look that fits like a dream since it is oh so slimming. At first try-on it is a tad confusing about the belt which is sewn along the back and basically tied on the left side. I did need to pin the top portion at the V underneath to keep it closed the way I'm comfortable with. I wore this with black tights and high heeled booties, accessorized with a combination strand of pearls/beige ribbon necklace that falls above the waist. A great look! (It would also look great with tortoise or gold jewelry.) The fabric, although much different than I expected, is substantial (i.e., not see through or clingy) and hangs very well. I normally wear a size 6-8 and the small fit the way it should - like it was made for me. Both my husband and my stylish 22 yr. old daughter also thought I looked great in this - nice! Feel good, look good - can't beat that - thanks Lands' End!

Super Cute Dress!
I was really nervous about purchasing this dress, especially that the plaid wouldn't be figure flattering. Boy was I wrong! This dress is super cute on the body. The plaid doesn't add the pounds you'd expect (especially from such a large print). I found it to be very slimming, in fact. I already own three other ponte' faux wrap dresses in the solid colors. Those are some of my favorite dresses in my closet, as they look beautiful on and are very slimming. The solid wrap dresses run a little on the large side, this plaid dress, however, runs true to size. I'm 5'8" and 150 lbs, and the Medium fits me very well, but hugs the body. If I gained a few pounds, it would be too tight and I'd need a Large.
Btw, this dress looks adorable with black tights and black patent leather shoes. So cute for the Fall and Winter months. Very happy with my purchase :)
