Women's Elbow Sleeve Cotton Modal Fit and Flare Dress
Haven't worn dresses for years. Wanted something light, cotton-blend, washable and WITH SLEEVES. Can't find the cotton or the sleeves in department stores. This dress is comfy, adorable and just what I wanted!

Runs very small.
Unless I messed up remembering the size I always order, this ran very small.

I have 2 on the sleeveless dresses, a red and a black, and I love them. I do wear a shrug or cardigan over them though. I thought this dress with sleeves would be great, but it wasn't. I ordered the violet in 2x, my normal size but it just didn't look right. I'm not sure if it was the length of the sleeve or the color but I felt like it was something my aunt would wear and she has been gone for years. I'm no spring chicken myself. I'm busty and 5'3" and the sleeveless dresses fit nice in the chest and fall to mid calf. I just wasn't impressed with this version the the dress.

Sleeves make shoulders look boxy
I love the sleeveless fit and flare sundresses (i get compliments every time I wear them), but this version with elbow sleeves is not as flattering on me. Sadly, I'm going to have to return both of the dresses I ordered. I already have fairly broad shoulders for my height (5'4", 110 lbs, usually a size 4 in tops and 00 in pants), and the sleeves make my shoulders look even wider.

I wish they'd bring back the 0x or even 00x. The plus sizes are longer, which I like, but 1 x is too big.
Otherwise, great dress.

This item fits well, true to size. Comfortable but not sloppy fit (meaning not so tight it shows every bulge like some other vendors). Fabric soft. Attractive, feminine styling. Good work dress. Can easily wear over a cami.
Haven't washed yet, so can't comment on that.

This dress is so comfortable, and I get lots of compliments when I wear it. Glad to see it is back for fall with more colors available.

Challenge for small busts
The dress was extremely comfortable like all Lands End garments. I liked the sleeve length, as it is hard to find flattering dresses with sleeves. The band right above the waist fit snugly and the flared skirt was flattering. As a small busted woman, I noticed the bust area was a bit large and gaped slightly. I'll have to wear a camisole underneath to prevent any inadvertent "bra flashing."

Comfortable and pretty
I didn't have high hopes for this dress since I have tried on many in this style that have not worked. I have a small bust (5'6" about 130#) and I am also slightly short waisted. I usually wear a 6-8 dress and I ordered the small. Out of all the dresses I bought, this was my husband's favorite. The raspberry plum color was different and the dress fit very well. I haven't washed it yet but the fabric is thick enough that it seems like it will last and easily go into the fall.

Not for busty women
I wish that Lands End would bring back some of the older dress styles that didn't have so much fabric at the bust. The colors of this dress are so pretty and the styling is nice but I have tried every size combination and none of them work for me. For reference I am 5'3", 34DD, 127 lbs.
