Women's Sleeveless Pattern Cotton Modal Fit and Flare Dress
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.

Love love love this dress
I got this dress in green, and absolutely love it! The dress fits a little big, but comfy. I love the 50s style and how small it makes my waist look. It curves at just the right places making it very flattering and forgiving in the tummy area.

Petite Size not Cut for Petite Person
I am 5'2" and ordered this dress in a petite XL. I order a lot from LE, and this dress is very disappointing. It is not cut for a petite (short) person. The length is petite, the back-waist length is petite, BUT the arm holes gape open in the front badly, the neckline in the back sticks out quite a lot, and the drape of the fabric in the front is waaaay to big; I would have to pin it to get it to cover my bra. I am not a thin person nor do I have a small bust, so in a petite, these areas should not be too big. The fabric is a good weight, but it seems rather stiff; maybe that's the starch, but I'm not washing it to find out. The photo would not change to show the Deep Sea Pattern "color," so on that I took my chances. Bad choice - it's unflattering - basically it is dark blue with light blue zigzag stripes running horizontally. Even on sale it is going back.

I LOVE this dress!
I bought 2 dresses in this style last winter before a sunny holiday and 2 more during the summer. I just bought 1 more for an upcoming island holiday. These dresses are great!. I'm curvy and these are a generous fit that flatters me beautifully. They're easy to wear, wash and dry like a dream, and can be dressed up or down to suit just about any activity.... from shopping and sightseeing to a nice dinner out. I even pulled one over a swimsuit for a day at the beach! Just LOVE the style and fit. I hope Land's End continues to offer them in new colours and prints. I know I'll be buying them. (The dress can be a little revealing...I just pin the inside of the wrap to my bra to keep it in place and problem solved.)

cute, but runs big. why no XS tall???
Size down on this one, esp if flat chested. This is a great dress for me thanks to the tall sizes, but PLEASE offer XS tall. Right now I am fitting into a small tall, but trying to get back to my old size(135-140 on a 5'9 frame) which will leave me sized out . In the tall length, this is a very versatile dress that is nice for work as well as many other occasions, but the regular length is a bit too short for that and looks decidedly casual. You offer this in XXS petite, so why not XS tall? Look through the older reviews LE, others have lamented the lack of this size too...show some love for tall women with smaller frames and remember that tall does not necessarily mean wide.
