Love the color & washes so well!
I bought a L, and it fits a bit big, but I am not well-endowed, so I add a tank. Very comfortable for work and dresses up well with a blazer.

The top fit was all baggy and unattractive.
The fabric was too heavy for the style. It might have been a lot better if it was lighter - even the same fabric at a lighter weight. The color was a disappointment, not being as pretty a deep blue as the pictures seemed to be. The whole dress in Large was way too big, even though I always wear size Large. The bodice was droopy and baggy-looking, and the overall fit made me look like a dumpy old lady.

Not flattering on me
I should have sized down on this dress. The shirred bodice felt like too much weight on top and made me feel a little dowdy.

Beautiful color but awkward fit
I love the blue color of this dress however it has an awkward fit. The gathering in the middle doesn't lay correctly and bunches up.

Nice fit and flattering
I just got this dress. Its a bit out of my normal range of colors (I got the blue) but I am excited to wear it. I am a 1x and the fit was great. I am a little self conscious for my hips so will probably wear a sweater over it, but the top is very flattering and slimming. Its a thick material and its comfortable fit and I didn't think it was too low or that I have to wear a shirt under it. I am planning to wear this to an Easter event.

Not flattering for a pear shape
This is not a good choice for a small-breasted pear-shaped woman whose waist is her best feature. (B-cup size 12) There ends up being four layers of droopy shirred fabric between the bust and waist (especially if you don't have much to fill out the bodice with) and it's just not flattering. If I sized down, the skirt would be too clingy on my hips and thighs.

Good dress, but need more colors.
I liked the style, am 62, 5'5" & 135# and ordered tall, since I'm long waisted and prefer a longer hemline. I would have used a decorative pin to secure the revealing neck/chest opening. If it was available in a flattering color I would've gladly kept it, but the pink lemonade color was too bright when I opened th package. This polyester knit fabric is a bit heavy, but had a nice drape.
I also ordered a dress in the same style but in a cotton knit, and returned it. Same description, however the navy background with white flowers looked cute online but the flower pattern was large and was not matched when sewn. This resulted in a cheap unflattering appearance. I did prefer the lightweight cotton knit Fabric over the polyester knit of the pink dress.
New Designer at LE: please offer cotton knit dresses with a few-inch longer hemlines in more flattering solid colors.
