Women's Sleeveless Cotton Modal Pattern Fit and Flare Dress
My new favorite dress
I love EVERYTHING about this dress! I purchased petite S (I am 5"1" and 130 pounds). The dress fits like it was made for me. I am not a fan of sleeveless, but the coverage is so nice, I may forgo wearing a shrug as planned; it's that flattering, says my husband :) I love the fabric weight, drape, and stretch of the dress. I got the navy/green polka dots, and I already have four events where it would be appropriate just by changing my accessories and shoes to fit the occasion. I haven't been this excited about a new dress since I was a child!

love love love this dress
Recently I lost 50 pounds and wanted a summer dress for weddings that would be more flattering than the old granny sack style or long peasant skirts I used to wear. Took a chance on this dress and I must say I could not be more delighted. I am still slightly overweight and curvy, 5 foot 8, DD chest, and it fits fantastic, looks good, covers what I want covered, and is comfortable. I bought the black and white polka dot and am pairing it with different cotton cardigans in bright colors. The catalog shows yellow and pink, I tried orchid and lobster red and am considering cobalt blue and mint green. I would love to buy another one if I could find a shop around here to try them on. I miss the old virtual models you used to have on your web site.

I'm very curvaceous and this dress looks wonderful on me, even hides my imperfect / extra tummy area. Love it. Can't wait until it warms up so I can wear it! Washed wonderfully, no ironing needed.

cute style and comfortable fit
I brought this dress in three colors, purple polka dot, teal green, and pink shell print. I kept them all! The fit is very flattering and feminine. I am 5'4" and it hits right at my knee.
I can wash dress and dry it only a few minutes for no wrinkles. Perfect thickness in fabric. Not too thin. Well made dress.
I have a white camisole I have to wear underneath for front coverage.

I love these dresses and keep buying different ones when the price is right. The only problem I have is that IMHO the V-neck is a tiny bit too deep and I am constantly having to pull it up a bit. I am a normal size woman, with some curves but not overly so and take a medium in this dress. I keep saying I will eventually tack them down with a stitch or two to raise the V, just wish that the V was a tad bit higher. But, they are very comfortable, look good on and are easy to wash with no shrinkage if you dry them in the dryer. They also dry perfectly on the line with no wrinkles, which I have also done her in California.

Perfect for everyday and dressing up!
This dress fits wonderfully, and is both modest enough to be worn for everyday, and nice enough that I can use it for everything from business meetings to evenings out.
It's easy to dress up or down depending on the accessories, and is such a flattering fit! I bought it in two prints, and plan to buy more!

An incredible garment!
This is a stunning dress in every sense of the word. The pattern is adorable, the quality is just lovely, and it is very "lady like". And it does not require ironing! I just hung it up, the hanger fell, leaving it as a lump on the floor. It still did not wrinkle!
I would like to see this dress come in another print or color, it is so outstanding. Whatever buyer selected this one, gets a big kiss! I think one can wear this any time, any place. Depending upon how you dress it up or down, it is appropriate for a party, church, food shopping, just about anything I can think of. Want more colors, please!

I have six fit and flare dresses.. Just returned from a cruise were I noticed a few women of different shapes and sizes wearing a fit and flare dress and must say they flatter every figure. Depending on the pattern and color you can wear it around the pool or on formal night. Also, the perfect travel dress.

Consider sizing down
This is a flattering, well-made dress. However, it took me a few tries to get the correct size in this dress. I an 5'3", 136 pounds, athletic build. I typically wear a S or M in other brands. I started with the Petite S and ended up with the Petite XS. The Petite XS fits fairly well, but I wish that Lands End would adjust the overall fit for petite sizes and not just the length, as the shoulders on this dress are a little wide for me. This causes the middle back to gap slightly if I don't position the straps wide on my shoulders. Overall, I am happy with purchase. A few tweaks with the sizing would make a good dress even better.

This dress was so perfect, I bought three more!
I loved the look of this dress in the catalogue so I ordered one in the pink floral. It fit like it was tailor made for me! I usually have great luck with Lands End plus sized dresses and this was no exception. The cut was so flattering and, believe me, that's hard to find as a plus size woman. I love the sleeveless feature and the waistline. The crossover v-neck is perfect and the gathering in front and back at the waist is so attractive. It really is slimming! I wasn't sure how the length would look on me, as I usually go for the maxi length to hide flaws. But, once again, it was perfect! I put sandals on and I know it looked great on me because my husband said so! I know the fabric will be great for trips and it will be a perfect vacation dress. I loved it so much, I ordered three more thinking I would pick my two favorites and return the third. But, they were all so perfect, I kept every one! The same style in different prints and different colors won't be a problem as I can add accessories to change them up. I'm so excited to wear the first one for Easter morning. It's the perfect dress to welcome Spring and Summer in.
