Women's Stripe Fit and Flare Maxi Dress
Nice casual maxi
Fit is good, maybe a bit big, but the armholes are just right and the coverage is great. My concern is one of quality - where the bodice is attached to the skirt, the horizontal lines don't match. The white stripe is predominate but the dark blue line shows in some areas, looking like it was not aligned properly. I would not have wanted to pay full price for this quality.

Different Pattern, Different Fit
I have this dress in the blue medallion print, and it is gorgeous. The fabric is sturdy but still flows, and the fit is very flattering. I love the dress so much I wanted it in other colors/patterns. I ordered the navy striped pattern (in the same size) in late August, approximately 3 months after the first dress, and the fit is totally different. The dress was too large everywhere, and it looked like a giant mumu instead of a lovely, flattering summer dress. I had to return it.

Overall, a great summer dress
I purchased two of these dresses, one in green and one in coral. The colors on the website and the descriptions are not accurate. The green is really a true kelly green and the coral is a true orange, so don't expect the soft colors as pictured. I am usually a 2x and 5' 7" so I ordered one in a 2x and one in a 3x. The 2x fit perfectly. I am rather busty and found the coverage surprisingly good after reading some of the reviews. After I washed both dresses I was disappointed to see that they had both shrunk in length, about 5 inches and the hem curls. The 2x shrunk in width as well and was tight. The 3x fit better. I would have been much more disappointed if I hadn't gotten them on sale. I purchased them for a vacation to a friend's beach house and wore them frequently as cover-ups and for casual lunches/dinners at home. Because of the hem shrinkage and the curling, I did not wear them about the town. They are good casual beach type dresses, and served their purpose.

Next to my wedding dress, the most beautiful dress!
I got this dress in an S in the blue medallion print. I am 5'4" and 150 and it fit exceptionally well. The length was perfect for short little old me (almost to the floor) and the drape and fit was amazing. The wrap around the bust was sexy but not revealing . I've gotten so many compliments on it and feel so pretty in it too. It's so comfortable and flattering. Wish there were more patterns (not the stripes though, maybe paisley or cool floral ) and I would buy all of them! Compared to other maxi dresses I saw online, the price (on sale) was right as well.

I love this dress. I bought it by the color description and the color was even brighter than I had anticipated. I used it to travel by air and it was really comfortable. I'm not petite, but short so the front rise really helps me to not trip over the dress which has been a problem for me with other maxi dresses.

This dress is so comfortable
I love this dress. I ordered it in both navy and coral, one tall and one regular length. Both lengths fit, I preferred the longer one but it was the one in coral. That was not coral it was orange and I didn't like the color at all. I would have kept both if the color had been good. I wish I had ordered it earlier in season when more color options were available. It is so comfortable!

Lots of compliments!
I wore this dress on a 6-hour plane ride and throughout hotel shuttles, check-in, and on to dinner and the dress was wonderful - stylish, flattering and nary as wrinkle at the end of the day. The higher waist band and crossover bodice are really flattering. Usually I don't go sleeveless with my wobbly arms, but I look so darned cute with all the dress's features it just didn't matter. Perfect neckline for a great necklace. Add a short half-slip and literally any style footwear and you are good to go. Great dress!

Great fit and feel but hem curls up- frustrating!
The fit and feel of this dress is fabulous. It's a true petite maxi dress (I'm 5'2") but I do think it runs a bit large. My frustration is with the hem; it curls up! This drives me nuts after paying full price for a dress. I think it should hang perfectly right out of the dryer. So now I pull it out damp, press out the hem, and let it dry hanging. I think it looks great on. Just have to babysit it in the dryer.

My height is 5' 0" and many maxi dresses are too long on me---even in petite sizes. This one is a perfect fit in size XXS and the length is perfect. I really like the tulip hem...I find it very summery and flattering. The fabric is lightweight and soft...but to be honest, I'm concerned how long it may last. I hope it doesn't start to pill too badly. My continued frustration with Lands End is their pricing. I'm tired of seeing the purchases I make go on sale the very next week (and sometimes the very next day!). Not just one time, but again and again and again. It makes me feel like I'm constantly being suckered into spending more than I have to. I'm starting to look elsewhere for online shopping. Hope you're listening Lands End.
