So pretty but did not work for me
Oh I wanted this dress to work for me...it is the perfect color of blue and I loved it...until I put it on. Like a a few others have said, the elastic waist hit me in a funny place and the fabric bunched up there. It just looked frumpy. I see it fit others just fine, it must just be a problem with my body type. So disappointed, if Lands' End could fix this (maybe a version without the elastic waist altogether?), I'd buy the dress again and keep it this time!

I feel pretty in this dress. I might be wearing this to my son's wedding. I will keep it no matter what because it feels so good on and the drape is so nice. My shape is hard to fit because I have larger hips than chest area but this dress looks nice.

One size smaller worked.
I usually wear a P12; I'm 5' 3" and short-waisted, but ample busted. I ordered it in P12 and P10. I could wear both sizes, but the P12 bagged a little at the waist; p10 ended up being perfect, and because the skirt is slightly A-line, worked through the hips also. The heavier lace is a rich touch, and I don't find it stiff. The lace overhang at the hem is really nice and the skirt sways gracefully. I feel both elegant and relaxed in this dress. The blue is vibrant and looks great with simple silver jewelry, but could look even casual with a colorful big-bead necklace or bangle bracelet. The coral color is just slightly lighter than the photograph. Blue photo is true to color.

Dress is made for a tall lady.
I read all the reviews, ordered the dress, and sent it back. I am a 10P. I am also short waisted. This dress had too much fabric bunching at the waist.

beautiful color--fit not so much
I wanted to like this dress as need one for an upcoming wedding. However the material was heavy and stiff and the overall cut to the dress was not flattering...on me. I'm 5' about 125 and got a PM. I either needed to be longer waisted or fuller on top. The length would have been fine tho.

Beautiful Cobalt Dress
I ordered four of the cobalt dresses for my wedding. This is a beautiful dress. It worked well for four very different body types.

I ordered this in blue to wear for dressy events this summer, beginning with a wedding. I am happy with the look and feel of it. The color is especially beautiful. I would have loved it to have short sleeves, with the same overhang of lace border at the bottom of the skirt.

I ordered a tall. My normal size was a bit big, so I ordered it in a smaller size. I love the color, lace and style of the dress! Wore it to a wedding and got lots of compliments.

It beautiful but is not especially flattering
I purchased it at Sears for a wedding. The salesgirls told me it looked great, better than the dress I was going to get initially. When I got it home to show the hubby I realized that it did not necessarily make me look awful, but it didn't do anything for me. The dress is beautiful (cobalt) and I love the hem detail. I like that the arm openings don't have your bra hanging out. There is just a bit too much fabric below the waist gathers and to make it perfect for me would require even a little sleeve. Putting a sweater etc over it seems a shame since it is so pretty. I take a size 10 or medium in most things and the size 10 fit me. Not sure I will keep it....
