Women's Short Sleeve Knit Stripe Block Polo Dress
Just looks odd on me
Dress seems to be well made, but on me the mix of casual material and style with dressier details just ends up looking confusing and odd. Too dressy for around the house or summer outdoors, too casual for going out. The skirt material is also a bit thin for my taste and seems to accentuate lumps and bumps. Would need a slip or shaper under it. May work for some, but I'm returning it even at sale price since I can't see where I would wear it.

cute casual dress, fit in t-shirt area a bit odd
I ordered this dress in a medium, which came to me specified as size 10-12 on the dress label. A bit bigger than I thought it would be, in my mind a size medium is an 8 to 10. It fits ok, although gaps in the armpit / under-sleeve area but the bust fits snug. In the end I decided to keep the medium because a size small might be too snug in the bust otherwise.
The dress is fine for a throw - on, considering the low sale price. I am not sure how well it will work as a warm weather dress because the knit is pretty heavy. I am guessing it will work for weather in the 60s to possibly 70 degrees, too much warmer & I think it might be too warm of a dress.
It is loose in the waist, but with my typical middle age figure flaws - better for people to wonder about rolls than to have a tight silhouette that removes all doubt.

Cute but no cigar
This is a fun casual style dress of high quality but alas not for me. If you're interested in this dress I suggest you carefully consider your figure -- will colourblocking enhance your look or emphasize what you'd rather not flaunt? Sadly, in my case it was the latter so I sent in back. If the style works on you, go for it!

Great spring dress
Perfect fit, but I thought it came with the belt...it didn't!

Hopefully something I'll wear all summer
Pluses: sleeves and a not-too-short length. Runs slightly large (I ordered MP), but that's fine for hot summer days. It definitely looks better with some kind of slim belt (as pictured in one photo, but not in others). The cherry color is a little loud for me, but I also think that I won't care when I'm wearing flat sandals on hot days. May update this (if possible) in a few months.

This dress looked so cute online, but it really hits me in the wrong place and looks just awful on. Even with a belt, it is a very unflattering fit. I will return it. It would look super cute on someone taller, maybe. I'm 5'5".

I am 62 kg&169 cm, so I bought size S. A dress lies fine. It is not very tight, though that`s fine. I purchased both-red and blue. Think they will be perfect casual dresses to job. Belts are necessary!

Pink polo dress
The polo dress was perfect. I go between small and medium. Glad I ordered the medium. The small would have been more close to body but would have fit. I like the flare of the dress. The material is soft. Great price.

Pretty dress, prettier with a belt
This dress looked good on and thankfully when I put a belt on, the belt covered the seam between the bodice and skirt. Perhaps if you are taller or shorter (I'm 5'9" and got a medium) the belt would not have covered the seam. With no belt loops there would have been no alternative but to return the dress. But next time put in small belt loops because even if its not sold with a belt, it looks much better with one.

Comfortable style dress
I was disappointed that the blue color was not available in my size. However, when the cherry red arrived, I was pleased with the style and color. Plus, being on sale, the dress was a terrific price!
It is a dress I know I will wear turn to frequently. The fabric is a good weight and comfortable; I like the length, which hits me (5ft. 7in.) right at mid-knee.
I think wearing a belt with the dress adds to the overall appearance.
Another wonderful Lands End addition to my wardrobe!
