Women's Pattern Knit Shirred Surplice Dress
I am very pleased with this dress although I have a bit of a problem with the surplice style gaping on me. I used a safety pin to fix the problem but will tack it with thread before I wear again. I got so many compliments, even from strangers on this dress. It is very comfortable and I am well pleased.

Beautiful Spring & Summer Dress!
This dress is very flattering for hourglass and pear-shaped women, and the pattern is bright and beautiful! Great with a cardigan for work, or with wedges for the weekend! This was the first dress I purchased from LE, and I had to come back for more!

Glow in the dark colors
I was hoping that getting the dress a little big would give me more length. With the spandex and the fact that I wanted it for casual wear, I wasn't really worried that it would be too big (I usually wear a small). But this dress was HUGE. And worse, the pattern (cyan) is cheap looking and the colors were bright enough to require sunglasses. I will not wear this. I live in Japan, so sending it back is also not an option. I am planning to donate it to a clothing drive the next time I'm in the States.

A Rare Dress
I haven't bought a dress in many years--just got fixated on pants and tops. This dress, however, is very flattering and I look forward to wearing it in Florida and Michigan--places where I split my time. The color is very nice, and I got a short little sweater to top it off.

It weighs a ton
The stirred section has way too much fabric and makes the dress not only heavy but also unflattering. Of the 4 dresses I ordered, this was the one I liked the best online. But it's the only one of the 4 that I am returning.

A perfect dress for an outdoor wedding.
I really liked this dress. I bought it to wear to an outdoor wedding and it was perfect.

Nice All-Occasion Dress - Good for DDs
OK, let me start by saying that I have a problem with current styles being just too short for a woman my age - 55+. Above the knee dresses and skirts are, frankly, inappropriate. (LE Buyers: take note!) Although I'm 5'1" I bought the regular so it would fall below my knees. I also find, as a woman with DDs (since the "change of life") that I often NEED a regular/misses size to maintain the waistline where it should be.
All that said as preface - I liked this dress very much. Fit was great, length just right, good chest coverage, laundered well (cold gentle/low partial dry + hang out). I would definitely consider buying in another color/pattern. I bought this for work + dining out. Fabric will carry from spring through fall (with a cardigan as needed). I am 139 lbs, 5'1", 40-33-40 (isn)

Colors were pretty, but not good for me. Got one in a solid - love it!

Dress Material is Heavy and Unflattering!
Oh my, the dress is okay, however, the wrap style is loose and requires a tank top or camisole...or pins! This is not a summer weight fabric. Fabric is HEAVY. Looks good in the picture, but the top is wide, low and uncomfortable. Pattern is pretty, that is the only thing I liked about the dress. It went back!

I am so happy with the comfort and fit of this dress. It can go from day to evening beautifully and the style and color print is very flattering. I received some lovely compliments!
