Women's Sleeveless Pattern Cotton Modal Fit and Flare Dress
Deep Sea Pattern
For anyone who, like, me, wants to know what the deep sea pattern looks like, see photos attached! The bodice shot is true to color in natural light. I this dress it on a whim without a close look at the pattern, and it was a pleasant surprise! it's been a fantastic dress so far. Excellent fit, very comfortable, washes well, and often complimented!

Very nice dress; flattering for most figures
I really like this dress, but I felt it runs just slightly big. I am 5'8", about 180 and 36D and ordered the L14-16. I am normally a size 12. It fits and I have worn it several times, but it just feels a little big. However, I feel like the M would be too small. The part where I notice it the most is across my shoulder blades and back of my neck. There is somewhat of a "gap" where the material doesn't lie flat on the nape of my neck. Another friend of mine got this dress and has the same issue. But it's not enough of a problem to warrant not wearing it.
It really is a pretty dress for summer or a beach vacation, but it's very versatile. You could wear this to a cocktail party, to work, or to lunch and feel completely appropriate #although it's more of a work/date dress than for a wedding, if that makes sense#. The material is a little bit thicker so you don't have to worry about wearing a slip underneath, but not so thick that it's too warm.
If you have a smaller chest, I would definitely get a size smaller than you normally wear. I just can't believe I keep seeing the price so low; get it while you can! You won't regret it.

Runs a bit big.
Originally ordered in a large petite but it was too wide, so I reordered in a petite medium and, surprisingly, it fit very well! I'm usually a 14 in LE tops, so I'd say this dress does run large.

i like this dress very much, the pattern w/vibrancy in color, the plunge in the neck isn't too revealing, tho' it does gap slightly~overall nice dress :D

Usually love Fit and Flare
I ordered my normal size XL. It is a very soft cotton, very light without being see through. But this one fits weird in the bust. Its gaping on the sides and oddly where the tag is in the back it gapes. No amount of adjusting tugging pulling or taking in could fix the issue. I'm busty and there's too much fabric on the top. I put a white sweater over it and it looks okay. but who wants to wear a sweater on the gulf coast in summer? Not me. I usually love the Fit and Flare dresses. Boo Lands End.

Great dress for work!
I now have 3 of these style dresses (sleeveless) and 1 with 3/4 sleeves. They fit, look and wash very well. The oldest one I have is about 2 years old and it still looks really fresh color-wise. I wish the neckline were more modest as I wear these dresses to work and always have a cardigan on with the sleeveless ones (I wear a Large - size 16 and 5' 9-1/2" tall). Have to safety pin the decolletage for work as I'd be too self conscious and it'd be inappropriate, LOL. I buy every pattern and color I like in these. Land's End - please make more with sleeves!! Overall, fabulous dress and I will keep buying this style.

Perfect Summer Dress
When I received the dress I was so pleased with the quality and finishing details. The hem was very well done and even all around. I usually wear a size 14-16, approx. 150 lbs and 5'6" tall. I ordered the large size (14-16) because I could always take it in it if was too big. It fit perfectly. I bought it because I needed some new clothing for a trip to Hawaii in a month. Thank you for such a fine quality dress.

Awkward in the bust
I wanted to like this dress, but the fit was weird in the bust. It hung open under the arms, gaped very large, and no tugging/pulling/pinning adjustment would fix it. Returned it.

Great fit & very comfortable
I have bought this dress in the Tall size in several different colors/patterns. It is my favorite dress to wear. It is great at work as well as around town or on vacation. It is very comfortable & has a very flattering fit. Please keep this design Lands End. You don't need to change anything except to add more colors.
