Women's Plus Size Short Sleeve Pattern Woven Stretch V-back Dress
This dress is gorgeous!
I am a 28 year old with a full, hourglass figure (5'7 about 230 with a DDD) and I live in dresses. This will probably be my new favorite! It's well made, lightweight, and the colors are beautiful (don't be afraid of the green, it's more of a light olive color than lime green). A lot of reviews stated it fit bigger but I order a 16W (vs my normal 14W) expecting to take it in but it fits like a glove. I also ordered the navy blue with white polka dots, which fits well, but the pattern is not as forgiving on a bigger figure, it may go back. LE make this dress in more colors and add 0-18 sizes!!

it looked like I bought it a K-mart really cheaply made

Love this dress!
I'm a plus size and in my 60s. I had no idea how this dress would look on, but I took a chance. (It helped that it was on sale.) I ordered this in the navy with white dots for a late Summer wedding and it was perfect even though the waist didn't hit me in the right place. (I am long waisted, though.) It is a very dark navy, almost black. I wore it with a dark navy cardigan and got several compliments. The neck is wide and I appreciated the ribbons with snaps to corral my bra straps. The material is nice and it washed well on the delicate cycle. (I hung it to dry.) I'm glad I took the chance on this dress - I love it!

Pictured myself as a flower bed, but looked more like a botanical garden.
I found the fit in the bust a bit snug. The back was lower than I like. The pattern , while very lovely, made me look like a botanical garden. It would likely look better if I was younger. I loved the sleeve and the length, but it's not going on a hanger in my closet. I'm returning it.

Comfortable and quite cute
I have the navy polka dot and went back for the navy, pink and green floral. The green in the floral is not lime green, but a softer sage/grass colour that I quite like, so over all the pattern is not quite so overwhelming. Both dresses are (for me) totally work appropriate yet could easily be worn for a garden party or cocktail event. The pockets are so handy!
One negative is that with the flare at the hips, there is a lot of fabric which could be an issue. Another potential downside is the relatively modest neckline accentuates a big bust.

Best dress ever!
This dress is awesome! Being plus size I ordered on a whim thinking that it would be a letdown. Not so with this one. It fits in right in all the places it should! Good job lands end!

Perfect dressy dress
I bought this to wear to my son's wedding. It will be perfect for an outdoor September ceremony. I haven't worn this style before, but am very pleased how it fits. It hugs my curves in the right places and is very flattering.

Felt like a queen wearing it!
I ordered this dress based on the high reviews and I was not disappointed! I got the navy with white polka dots and love it. I love that it has sleeves and pockets! I am a 14/16 and so I ordered the 14W and this fit well although the sleeves were a bit snug. I often have this problem though. I like the dress so much I am ordering it another color!

Dress was too 'full/blousy' for my liking.
This dress just wasn't flattering for me. I'm 5'2" & 162 lbs. It did seem well made, but I returned it.

I disagree emphatically with the review that describes one print as unappealing since the floral seems to be abstract paint splotches. What a fabulous way to take the focus off my less than fabulous size 24W. ( I sized down since the 26W was a bit large...miraculous in itself. The material can stretch a bit when ironing so keep this in mind if you are unsure about which size to order.) Instead, I found the pattern to be a most attractive camouflage! And in my opinion, the green is not a lime color but more a pea green color and not too bright at all. I wore the dress to my Goddaughter's Medical School Graduation and got so many compliments I began to feel guilty for the attention. The Celebration was held outdoors and this darling dress (with the 3% lycra but only in the body; the lining is 100% cotton) was so comfortable despite the very warm afternoon temperature. I tend to stay away from dresses because the styles available in my size just do nothing for me, but not so in this case. The dress is a real winner (lingerie straps, too...unheard of and so appreciated) more than well worth the price. To get it on sale... well that's another miracle. So I bought it in the navy dot pattern, too. I love both of them and am just as comfortable wearing either to the supermarket . I feel so pretty wearing these dresses. Thank you, Lands' End!
