Women's Elbow Sleeve Ponté Boatneck Dress
I love this dress
I love this dress and I wore it to church. I received many nice complements. I put it with a nice infinity type scarf in black and white. I love the quality of the material which is one of the hallmarks of Lands End. They have well made items. I look forward to many years of wearing this dress.

Flattering and simple
I gained weight over the winter and my shape is more "hourglass" than ever. I needed a few transition dresses -- between seasons and sizes -- and LE was having a sale. I really relied on reviews to help me pick the right dresses for my figure, which is why I'm writing this review now. I am high-waisted and needed to find dresses that are kind to curves -- this dress fits the bill (I?m writing a similar review for all three dresses I just bought). I got it in emerald, but to me it?s more in the kelly green family. It?s a basic dress that can be fun, but is also appropriate for work; it's a great piece to layer and accessorize. I usually order a LE size small; while I could possibly wear a size 8 now, I'm not a size 6. So I ordered this dress in a medium, but in petite. I'm 5'4" and I'm happy with the length (hits mid-knee) and overall fit of the dress; it's not at all tight or clingy. It?s actually is a little loose around the neck and there?s a little extra material around the midsection, but again, I'm between sizes and prefer extra, as opposed to not enough, material! But if I hadn't ordered a petite, the medium definitely would have been too big. The dress does have a built-in high waist, but with a wide belt, you really can't tell (I think it looks better belted). The only reason I'm giving it 4 instead of 5 stars is because I haven't laundered it yet, so I'm not sure how the fabric will hold up or how it will retain its shape over time.

Dress perfect for casual day and dinner with friends!
Fabric and fit comfortable and 3/4 sleeves were nice touch. Always quality from Lands End that can be counted on.

I love this fabric - hangs nicely. The only one they had left in my size was the black, which I received and I do love. I'm kicking myself for not acting on this sooner and being able to get more colors.

Love this dress! Weight of fabric is substantial but still flows nicely over body. The red is vibrant. Design features such as length of skirt and sleeves are generous and not skimpy at all. This is a versatile dress to get in every colour and wear for work, weekend and special occasions -- just change accessories.

This dress is vert comfortable.
The fit was just great, and it was better than I expect.

Not a winner. Frumpy length, made me look fat
I'm a size 8 in almost everything from LE. This dress "fit" in the sense that it wasn't baggy or too tight but boy was it unflattering. The neckline is too high to be a pretty scoop neck but too low to be a flattering crew neck. All it did was expose the fact that I should have worn a lot more sunscreen on my chest when I was younger. The length was too long and hit me right where my calves start thickening instead of right below or at the knee (which is what the picture shows). I'm 5'7" and the length should have been good. Finally, the waist may come a bit higher than natural waist (which should have been slimming) but ended up just making me look fat. For me, this shape was NOT a winner. But, in typical LE fashion, the quality of construction was excellent. No complaints on that aspect.

A beautiful dress, especially for those of us with a somewhat hourglass figure. The length hits me right at the correct spot (I'm almost 5'9" and I purchased a regular length). I purchased a Medium and it fit true to size. I would certainly buy it again.

Great dress for work or to fancy up with jewelry for dressy occasions.
I ordered this dress for my adult daughter for Christmas. She is five feet ten inches and i ordered a size eight tall , it was too short waisted so we sent it back. Too bad, because it is such a classic and elegant style.
