Women's Elbow Sleeve Fit Flare Polo Dress
I couldn't love this dress more
I am a size 3X, an apple-body type. This is the dress I have been waiting for my entire adult life. I bought three of them and think I will pick up the orange, too, if it available in my size. I dress super-casual for work, wearing shorts and a t-shirt to work at my consulting firm. However, when I have doctor's appointments in the city or just want to look presentable without hard work, I just throw this dress on. Even without any accessories it makes me look acceptable.
The only drawback is that it did seem to shrink an inch after washing. I would be ecstatic is Lands End made the dress two inches longer to cover my knees - and I am just 5'4".

Great Summer Dress!
I bought this dress last year, I don't buy too many plus size dresses that look good on me, but this was GREAT, Loved the sleeve length, and the fit. Wore it many times last year and so I am buying 2 more for this summer!! I hope they always carry this dress!

what a flop
I have bought many Lands End polo dresses over the years-this one was a big disappointment and is going back-cheezy fabric , poor design ( very uncomfortable fitting at the neckline) and poor fit overall.

Way too small
This was one of three dresses (size large) I ordered from LE. The other two fit fine, but this seemed 2 sizes too small. I couldn't even get it on.

Fit was nice
I liked the way the dress fit, but the color(cherry) was a bit too bright for me.

Awesome dress for plus sized women!
I love this dress! I bought it for a trip to Mexico and would have worn it every day if I had more colors! (I ordered mine on clearance and it only came in navy.) Many plus size dresses are cut like we have no waist or shape - this dress shows you have a waist without being clingy. The fabric feels sturdy and it looked great after it came out of the washer and dryer. I wore it to dinner at night and felt like it was definitely dressy enough for more upscale restaurants. I'm be watching for these to go on sale and order more for sure! Thanks too Lands' End for not making another plus sized dress with a huge pattern on it; simple is always more flattering.

Not bad, although I wish it was made from 100% cotton instead of a cotton/lycra blend. I found the fit (probably because of the Lycra) to be a bit too small and will return it for a larger size.

Really perfect, comfortable, wonderful dress.
I absolutely adore this dress. I ordered it in lobster tail initially as that was the only colour they had in my size but then they had it in ocean blue which is my favourite colour so I had to order that. Then, when they arrived they fitted so beautifully (just so comfortable, as I tell my friends "it's like wearing nothing" which is truly my modus operandi when buying clothes lol!), that I waited for the green to come up in my size and then ordered that. If only I'd've ordered them all together I would have saved on shipping but oh well, not to worry; I'm sure I'll get a lot of use out of all of these dresses. It's great as I swim in the middle of my work day so I wear it, and just throw it on after the pool - no real "getting dressed" but still look professional.

I purchased the lobster tail color in XS petite. Fits very well for my small frame. It is easy to wear and very comfortable while still being really cute. Lots of compliments on it.

perfect summer dress!
I love this one, as the fit is perfect (5'1" and 122 lbs. and bought the small) It feels so comfortable yet has a very neat look about it. Slight empire waist gives a nice fit through the bodice. Depending on the shoes you wear it works for church or just doing errands. This was my first one and I wouldn't mind at all having more colors.
