Description

Ready for any weather and any setting.

It’s usually pretty easy to spot the tourists in a foreign country, particularly in warm weather—they’re the only ones dressed in shorts and tanks. If you’re looking to blend in and still stay cool, pack the Icebreaker SuperFine 200 Villa Dress. This ultra-light dress features a simple A-line style, self-fabric belt, and mid-thigh length that take it from daytime touring to evening dinners with ease. The natural merino wool fabric breathes to keep you cool and dries quickly when the temps rise; thanks to its intrinsic ant-odor properties, you won’t stand out in other ways, even after multiple wearings.

Shaped like a rectangle

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I have this dress in the red color (cherub?), in a size medium. I'd say the color is just a bit darker than its showing up for me on the website. A little less bright, I think. I'm typically a medium in most dresses (6 on top, 8 on the bottom). The fabric seems thin to the eye, but feels comfortable on. The bust and waist fit excellently, but the bottom is a bit tight. My hips are not very wide side-to-side (not a lot of definition from waist to hips), but I suppose they are front-to-back. The bottom of this dress really accentuates giant tree trunk thighs. I think its meant for people with smaller thighs. It will also show off any prominent gut action, too, so beware of the pooch factor. I'm really going to have to spanx it up to make it work, but I still like the dress. It hits mid-thigh on me, and I'm 5'8 with an inseam somewhere between regular and long.

SCORE!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Great value, lightweight and high quality. Who doesn't love super soft wool?! I ordered size M, true to size and excellent fit. I'm 5'10 and usually wear size 8 / 30 jeans / general medium and this dress is form fitting in all the right ways. Awesome dress, could be worn anywhere: a meeting, wedding, everyday, with layers seasonally. I ordered another in black too!

Lightweight, soft, versatile

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I am a woman with hips and strong athletic legs, which sometimes proves troublesome for activewear companies' dresses, skirts, shorts, & pants. Nothing seems to fit correctly. This dress, however, with its soft-not-clingy merino that has a little "give," is great. I wore it right out of the box with tights, ankle boots, boots and a cardigan for a night out. It breathes, doesn't itch, and keeps its shape after wearing it into the wee hours of the morning.
On the subject of the sleeves and neckline. Reviewers are correct that they have a looser fit. It is not and exaggerated dolman sleeve, though. The neckline dips low, but I found that the medium did not gap or show anything that was risque. The large may have on me, though.
I think it's going to be a very versatile piece that can be worn 4 seasons with the right accessories. I ordered it in black, medium. I am 5'5", 150 lbs, 34C on top and a little junk in the trunk on the bottom.

Loving this dress...I own 2

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have 2 dresses in this style, eggplant and cherub. One is a medium and one large. I am 5'3" and vary between 135-140. Two kids with mama body- not too flabby but not too firm either- these dresses are my go to with boots, with flats... Love the look. I don't typically wear a cami with the size medium but usually wear a scarf to cover the low neckline. I've had these dresses for 2 years and they're still going strong-

Semi-dolman style arm openings? Not actually as loose under the arms as I expected based on reviews.

Slim on the bottom, looser up top

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Ordered this in Walnut in XS. I was hesitant since I read it fits large up top, but the price was too good to turn down in the Outlet. My own measurements put me a smidge below an Ice Breaker XS in the Waist and Hips; I'm between XS & Small in the bust. Given that information, I would say that the dress may run a bit large up top and between small and true to size on the bottom, depending on how you like it to fit. The bottom is a straight cut and close fitting, but not inappropriate for my work, where I we dress somewhere between business casual and a step above casual. The neckline of the dress does require a cami underneath to make it work-appropriate.

The XS Length from the underarm to the bottom hem along the side seam is just under 29". At 5'2", the dress hits just above my knee. Measuring across the chest from underarm to underarm is about 17.75-18", unstretched. I would say the bust area fits almost like a dolman top, but not quite to that degree of loose-ness.

Has thin beltloops at the side for the sash, but you could easily cut them off of if they bothered you.

I have 3!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

I love Icebreaker clothing, and this dress is no exception. Merino is the best fabric, no matter what you want to do. Other people's comments are correct...in that the bust runs much larger than the hips. As someone who has a large chest and booty with a narrow waist, I feel more comfortable wearing the L with a tank underneath.

Nice Dress!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I am a bigger woman, 5'7'' and 42-36-46, typically I wear a 14 and I ordered an XL. Hits my waist right, the neck line is appropriate. The eggplant is a nice color, very seasonally neutral. I've worn it out on two evenings and received many compliments. Its thin fabric so I wore a slip with it.

Way too large in top portion of dress

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large

The proportions of this dress are way off. I'm 5'4" and 110 lbs. The size small is way too large on the top (underarms hang and it looks too sloppy, even with a tank top underneath.) The bottom portion of the dress is perfect, which makes me believe that the size XS will be too tight in the bottom. The fine wool material and the eggplant color are absolutely wonderful, but if it looks too sloppy on the top,then I won't wear it. Very disappointing, as I bought this dress for travelling in Europe in a few weeks.

Thanks for your feedback. We did a re-fit on this dress for the fall- check out the new Fall colors- Cruise, Black and Lotus. I think you will find a nice change in the fit for you.

Great Comfortable Dress

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This dress is not only comfortable but it's super flattering on. True to size... I'm usually between a 5-7, and I ordered a small. At first I got the medium and it was WAY too big, so I exchanged it for a small. Love this dress. Hope to see it in more colors. Great for summer, fall and winter.

Responded on

There will be all new colors for Fall- check back soon!

Meh...

I don't think the cut or style is anything special. It is too large in the bust and too wide through the torso. The fabric is also thin and clingy so you have to have your business in order and the appropriate undergarments. i just don't think it is particularly flattering.

A Favorite Dress!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I love the this Icebreaker SuperFine Villa dress, it's perfect for travel and hiking/backpacking in the outdoors. It's very light weight, a great soft feel to the merino wool. I fits true to size, I am 100 pounds, about 5 '3 and the Small is great. This dress doesn't hold odor, so you don't need to wash after every wear. It also dries super fast! The fit is very flattering, I think this dress will look great on every lady! I have the black and grey colors! Very happy with this purchase!

Perfect for heat/humidity.
Nice.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Purchased for my wife. She's 5'4", 115 lbs - small fit perfectly. Material is soft and breathable. Wore in summer months in Thailand (Bangkok and Phuket) and was total hit. Definite recommend.

great travel, or anytime, dress

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Comfortable, stylish and great for travel. The fabric is really nice. This dress is sized more generously that their sportier clothes. I'm 5'6" and 122 lb and the small is a comfortable fit, but like noted in other reviews, the sizing of the top half is a little large. The tie belt is nice once it is on, but a bit awkward to arrange (you have to unloop it before putting the dress on to avoid getting into a tangle). Take care if you carry a shoulder bag or satchel - this resulted in a bit of piling of the fabric (but my fault, really). I would buy another of these.

The PERFECT Backpack/Travel dress

Merino wool to keep you cool/warm+quickly dries sweat+wrinkles from packing release in a minute+antimicrobial+comfortable = the perfect outdoors dress. I have worn it to a couple of parties and dressed it up but my favorite use by far has been for hiking and backpacking. Just throw a pair of spanks under and you have a very versatile piece of clothing!

No issues here!

I was a little hesitant on the purchase of this dress. After reading several other reviews that commented on the size being a bit off - too tight in the hips/bottom; too saggy in the top - I was a little worried that a medium would be too small. I am 5'6" with an athletic build, but at 158 lbs, so I'm carrying around a few extra pounds. And I definitely pack the junk in the trunk. So I ordered a medium (which is what I would typically wear) and a large, just in case the dress was too tight in the hip area. I tried on the medium and it fit perfectly! I didn't even open the large. It is very flattering, I found the fit to be just right. Great length too, hit just a couple inches above my knees. I expect to get a lot of use out of this dress!

Love it!!

I have five of them!!! two blue, one with the stripes which are OK; brown, purple and black..I would like to try the red but want to make sure since it looks a bit orange in the pic...can someone tell me is it a blue red or orange red? Again, you can see I love this dress; so comfortable in hot or cold. I've worn in OH as well as balmy FL..you won't regret this purchase.

Hey! I just ordered the red and it is not orange-ish. More on the cooler side of red.

I like this dress but how do I get 50% OFF. At checkout, the billing is $80 +

Only the older discontinued colors are discounted. Black is a current color so it isn't marked 50% off.

I often get itchy from wool and sometimes get a fine rash. Has anybody had this difficulty with this dress?

Responded on

I can only speak to the itchiness of merino and Icebreaker generally. I also get super itchy from wool such as that found in sweaters and older socks. But merino wool is a much smaller fiber and is much finer than the traditional wool you find in older pieces. It feels more like a very soft cotton than wool and I actually have no itching issues with my Icebreaker layers in the Superfine200 weight.

Responded on

This dress is really soft, for me. I do not mind the texture of merino wool, generally, but am aware of it; and this dress is softest. It's also see-through; needs a slip, though I am thinking of buying it in a second color and sewing the two together, to make a lined/reversible merino wool summer tank dress. Self belt or elegant belt work well. The blue is just what my monitor shows. Well made, too!

Responded on

You can also wash your new Icebreaker- that makes it softer.

Responded on

I had the same issue until I discovered Merino wool. Icebreaker uses very fine wool, which makes it very soft. The softest I have worn.
