Rated 5 out of 5 by carrolljd Can't Believe I found a Decent 3X Dress
I am size 24/26 and there just aren't any nice dresses for me anywhere. Money is not an issue and I still can't find anything. The sleeves are too tight or the dress is too short. This dress saved me. I bought it for a reception in black and the blue print and my mother died two weeks later. I wouldn't have had a dress. This is the first time I have worn a polyester dress, and I actually felt okay in it. Does it make me look matronly? Yes. But it fits like it was made for me, and fits all of the criteria I have for a decent dress except the fabric. This is a classic and I expect to wear this dress for years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by btaylor701 I followed the recommendations on size.
I ordered this dress in a size smaller than my usual and it fits great! I like the quality of the material and the drape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CindyinMD Nice surprise....
This is a perfect all weather dress. When it gets cooler I plan to pair this with tights and boots and either a cardigan or blazer for work. In warmer weather my office can be chilly so the 3/4 sleeve will come in handy. The material does not wrinkle so it looks perfect even at the end of a long day of sitting. My normal landsend size fit me perfectly...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dawn39 Functional dress at a fantastic price
While I can understand why some reviewers called this dress matronly, it does fill a place in my wardrobe. I originally bought it to wear to a bar mitzvah (cue the matron look), but I was pleasantly surprised with the fit. I'm 5'3", 118 pounds, slender frame, and the dress hung very well. The belt accentuated my waist, and the dress floated close to my body without being clingy. It hit above my knee, which helped it look less dowdy, and the nude heels I wore with it helped boost its appeal. I got it on sale and am happy to have a conservative look that still leaves me feeling pretty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MontgoMom Great fit at a great price
This fit well, but not too snug. I like the pleats at the neckline and the wider neckline- very flattering for me (I've always looked awkward in v-necks and love a boat neck). Being larger chested and high waisted can also present fit issues with dresses like this, but it has just the right amount of room in the bodice for my 36D bust. The fabric has a good weight to it, making it perfect for fall or the end of winter-early spring. I'd love to have this in other colors.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sinclair05 Too short waisted
The waist of the dress came up to my armpits. i don' think it is supposed to be an empire waist, especially since it has a belt. I cannot wear it, so I am sending it back. FYI, my bust is not all that big. I think it would fit this way on nearly anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by risable nice winter dress, but not for my shape
This is a nice dress, cute style and print, nice heavier fabric that seems like it would come out nice after washing in cold and drying on a rack. But the style is unflattering for my pear shape, loose top and straighter skirt. But for someone taller and more evenly distributed (: it is a nice dress and good price on sale.

Rated 3 out of 5 by HappyShopper75023 Boatneck showed bra straps
I liked the medium weight and drape of this fabric and the small print. The sleeves were a bit snug but otherwise dress ran true to size. I found it a bit matronly. No matter what I tried, the boatneck was so wide that not only did my bra straps show, but so did some skin on outside (towards shoulders) of the straps. I considered keeping it and wearing it with a sweater, but when I tried that, it looked even more dowdy. It has to go back...

Rated 2 out of 5 by Texapina This dress was too big for my petite frame.
I ordered a 4P because I usually have no problems fitting in this size. I am 5'1" and weigh 115lbs. This dress was huge! The pattern looked funny on my petite frame, but the colors of the dress were not too bad. Sorry to say I will have to return this. The good news, I am going to see if I can find another dress!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ShoppingMaven Flattering fit and pairs nicely with black jacket or sweater
I get many compliments on this dress from women of all ages. I'm 5'8" 155 lb and a Medium fits great with a little room to spare. I wear this to work paired with my black suit jacket or a black cardigan and a silver necklace. It feels great, looks great, doesn't wrinkle, and I'm happy I got it.
