Women's Cap Sleeve Rayon Spandex Fluteneck Dress
cute and flattering
I've been stalking this dress and finally went for it during a sale. The fabric has a nice drape and feel- not too thin and not too clingy. The pattern in blue is cute, slimming, and lengthening. I love the neckline and the skirt comes to the middle of my knee and has a slight flare to keep it swingy not clingy. I am not bothered by the few inches of gathering at the waist- I found that it gently floated over a problem area. I'm giving it 4 rather than 5 stars because the belt/waist seam is too high as so many LE dress belts/waists are.

Not quite right
At first glance I liked the dress on me. But then I realized the waist was a bit snug and didn't sit right. I have a small waist so the waist is never snug on me so this surprised me for LE clothing. The rest of the dress fit fine though. I tried to pair it with a wide belt, a skinny belt, or the fabric belt it came with. Nothing seemed to work at the waistline to make it look good. It was just "off." For reference, I got a small and am 124 lbs and 5'4.
Beware, If you have any extra weight around your waist this will definitely accentuate it because the material is thin.

I returned this dress since I found it looking frumpy and old.

Love this Dress
I bought this last year (in both colors) and have received a ton of compliments on them. I have a lot of the Lands End fit and flare and/or wrap style dresses and in those I am a size XS. I had to size up to a S for this dress (otherwise I looked like a sausage) and it was just perfect. I'm a very curvy hourglass (so much so that I can never buy a sheath/straight dress of any kind) and it was great. I like that this dress has almost cap-like sleeves rather than wide open arm holes (I can wear it in the office without a sweater) I also like that the chest isn't wide open. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the little bit of pleating at the waist. It would be more slimming without that. If you make this available in other colors, I will buy again :)

problem with belt/waist
For my figure the waist seam is low and the belt sits way above it. I was obliged to sew the belt onto the seam to prevent it riding up and looking ridiculous. Otherwise this is a beautiful, useful everyday dress of which I love both the fabric and design .

Tight and Very Thin Fabric
This fabric was very thin and sheer, and the dress was so tight it showed every bump, very unflattering, returned.

Cute dress but not for me. Returned it.
I love the feel of this dress. If the fabric color would be have been more "classy" (not so bold), I probably would have kept the dress. The gathers at the front waistline are not flattering, even on a small person.

The colors weren't what they appeared online and it wasn't a very flattering dress

Great shaping, poor fabric life
Love the neckline and shaping of this dress - it clings in all the right places, but the fabric is heavy enough that it doesn't emphasize unsightly bulges. I wish I could recommend it fully. But after only 2 washings the fabric began to pill and the colors dulled a little. I could understand that from a cheaper line, but I'm used to better from Land's End!
