Women's Plus Size Cotton Modal Trapunto Scoopneck Dress
Great Comfortable Dress
I'm wearing this dress as I type. I bought both the blue and black. I'm thinking of buying the other colors as well. This is such a great dress! It's very comfortable, and like another reviewer said, it hides a lot of the "bumps" that a plus size lady has. When the summer starts to heat up, I'm looking forward to grabbing this out of the closet and looking put together while keeping cool and comfortable.

I can't begin to tell you how much I love this dress! I hope Lands' End decides to keep it around for a long time. I am a plus size woman, and I ordered this dress in a 2x in Asparagus. I am 5'7", 44B, 43" waist, and 51" hips. The dress hits a little above the knee. It is incredibly flattering to my curves and fits perfectly. I came back and ordered the rest of the colors! My husband usually doesn't comment on what I wear, let alone ASK me to wear something specific. This dress came in the mail and we were going out to run errands later in the day, and after I tried it on, he said I should wear it when we went out. Twice! I am a mom of a toddler, and this dress is so easy to pull on and go. I feel comfortable and put-together in it and it is effortless. I think it is versatile enough to be worn with a cardigan, tights, and boots in the fall and winter too. It looks adorable with a scarf or long necklace. I do have some lumps and bumps that knit fabrics tend to bring attention to, so I wore a one-piece body shaper with built in bra underneath. Without question, I would recommend this dress to others. Thank you, Lands' End, for making a lovely dress for plus-size women that isn't a shapeless sack, and for offering it in several attractive colors!

I have a beloved T-shirt from Land's End that has the same neckline, and thought I'd try the dress version. I was not disappointed! The neckline and cut are flattering, and I ended up getting a blue one because I liked the black one so much. I'm 5'8 and, while I wouldn't want the skirt any shorter, the length works for me. I'd love to see this dress in purple or dark red or forest green...

Too Large and Unflattering Fit for Plus
I wouldn't recommend this dress for the plus size figure.

Great for shorter plus size women
This is a great dress with a very flattering fit. I own it in two colors and receive tons of compliments. The belt has a textured side, similar to the trim around the neck, and a smooth side that's similar to the fabric in the rest of the dress. It's lightweight and great for warmer months. It may work in cooler months with thick tights and a sweater.

More of these! Please!
I oh SO love this dress. I've abandoned the sash since I couldn't be bothered to make sure it was tied in the right place but I'm thinking of having some fun and getting a long colorful scarf to use instead.
But for those of you that like empire-waisted dresses like me, this is just lovely. It's SO comfy and flattering and still looks dressy for work.

LOVE LOVE LOVE THESE GREAT DRESSES
I purchased 3--one in pink, one in black, and one in navy stripes. I needed cotton dresses--so hard to find anymore---hate synthetics, as they don't absorb sweat. These dresses are very flattering and extremely comfortable--like wearing a nice soft tee-shirt. Am wearing them with long chains and/or scarves, can also layer with jacket or cardigan. I am XL and they are quite form-flattering for the larger woman, like myself. Good for traveling, as I will be--soft wrinkles just come out with wear, and they are lightweight for packing.

This dress is easy wear and easy care!!!
I ordered the dress in pink and recieved many compliments. I had taken the dress on vacation with me and packed it in my suitcase. It came out ready to wear for an evening dinner at the Culinary Institute of America. It fit true to size and was very comfortable the whole evening. When I came home from vacation I ordered 2 more , one in black and one in celestial blue.

I really like this dress. It fits nicely, and feels true to size. I feel like I am dressed nice but still very comfortable. My family noticed and asked if I got a new dress!! I came back to get the black but it's gone in my size.

Nice wash-n-wear dress
I'm 5'6" and usually a 16W so I ordered a black 1X and am pleased with the fit. I've worn this to work a bunch ot times throughout the summer and have gotten many compliments. It hits me just slightly above the knee (a little shorter than I usually wear, but still hides the Spanx & slip). It launders well, although the black has faded somewhat - not terribly to the point where I'd send it back, just slightly. I haven't noticed any shrinkage in the dryer although if I don't take it out right away it does wrinkle, of course. I cut off the belt loops after one broke and have substituted my own belt instead of the one that came with the dress - but have worn the one that comes with it too (it's fine, just a matter of boredom on my part). I pair it with a cardigan and it's about the easiest work outfit I own. For the money, it's a good basic wardrobe piece. Happy I bought it and hope they come out with something like it for the winter (longer sleeves, longer in length, heavier material perhaps?).
