Patagonia steps outside the mountains and lets you do the same with the Morning Glory Dress.

This is the most comfortable and flattering dress I have put on in a long time. One note is that the knot in the back can be uncomfortable when leaning against a chair.
on body view on the Patagonia Morning Glory Dress
I love this dress--its beautiful and extremely comfortable. It can easily be dressed up for a night out or dressed down for lounging about, and it is comfy enough that you'll definitely want to wear it while lounging. Best of all, even though it has no built-in bra, the bust support is fantastic. I almost always wear it without a bra even for super-active occasions. I would highly recommend it. The only downside is that he tie in back can be uncomfortable when sitting in chairs.
Love this dress
Just got back from a cruise in Hawaii, couldn't have brought a better dress along. Came out of my suitcase looking perfect! The fit is wonderful, not too clingy...a must have, go-to travel dress.
3 years and still loving it
I've had this dress for around 3 years, and I still love it! I took it on a 3 month trip around Africa and it handled the intense heat of the summer right along with me, and was easy to throw in my backpack and pull on in times when it wasn't appropriate for me to wear shorts. Comfortable and versatile except when sitting in hard-backed chairs (because of the knot in back).
my new favorite dress!
This dress is fantastic and is my new summer staple! The fit is slimming on top and glides over your curves on the bottom. I have worn it to my rehearsal dinner for my wedding with jewelry and out hiking/kayaking too, sans bra (I'm a 36 B/C...not too big up there). The fabric is similar to swimsuit material, quick drying, yet also flattering. I have the Fusion Sunset color (burnt orange) and liked it so much that I bought the Patagonia Half Mass messenger bag in the same color. Enjoy ladies!
Is this dress dressy enough for a wedding?...
Is this dress dressy enough for a wedding? I am a bridesmaid in an upcoming wedding and I need a knee length black dress. I dont want it to look like a sun dress next to the other girls. How is the material will it be dressy enough?
The Morning Glory Dress has been worn very often as a bridesmaid dress and would definitely work for you. The material drapes nicely and is dressy enough for sure.
I've had this dress for a few years now. I like it so much I'm ordering another one. Pros. Hides all my defects like my belly. Travels well to places where I could only handwash it. Doesn't need ironing. Grows with you. If your size changes so does the tie in the back. Goes from casual to formal dinner in a flash.
Cons. Need a bra as the nipples do show. And that's one without straps! V-neck is a little low, can show cleavage. Knot in the back can be annoying when you are sitting at dinner.
Morning Glory anything!
I bought this because I got the Morning Glory Halter top last year, which I love and wear from casual to climbing all the time. Also, saw 2 chicks wearing this dress at a friend's wedding. It doesn't matter that a lot of women own this because I don't blame them! Its so comfy and stretchy. I love that you don't have to wear a bra, but it still gives support. Patagonia needs to make this in more bright colors!
Best bet for a dress
My wife loved everything about it! She wore it to an outdoor summer casual wedding in the heat and it was perfect. She looked hot, though.
feels like a skinny dip
this is by far my most favorite dress i've ever owned. I had the earthenware in a small, ordered blk and navy in xs on accident and quickly reordered small. :( navy sold out. Patagonia should definately keep this dress forever, in all the earth tones and new wild colors every year. I wear it so much I'm thinking about ordering another in earthenware and black in case they quit making it! The cut is so flattering and in the hot sticky south where just thinking about doing nothing but sitting in the shade outside can make you sweat the swimsuit fabric is like the cool side of a pillow. I usually wear an XS, but the under bust seam and sides of the bust were way small (i'm 5'4" 120 34C) however the patagonia bahnda dress fits me perfect in XS. it's an awesome dress also.
D-sized Athletic Women Need Not Apply
Patagonia, while staying "true to it's core" (as corporate brochures state) of rock climbing low percent body fat flat-chested women athletes, does not have much in the way of casual wear that is well fitting or applicable to D-sized athletic women. Do not attempt this dress if your cup size is D or larger, it just isn't a flattering look. The fabric looks and feels lux, though. Seems like a good price for the quality. I had to return mine, however....
is the fusion sunset color really...
is the fusion sunset color really orange???
Yes, it is rather orange...and beautiful. This item has a high sell-out rate, get it while you can!
Best Dress Ever
I bought this dress on a suggestion of a friend and am so glad I did. I think it is the best dress I have ever tried on. It has a very flattering shape, with a fitted halter top, semi fitted middle (enough to make you look slim but doesnt show your belly if you have one) and an A line skirt about 1 inch below the knee. I'm 5'10" and wear between an 8 and 10 and the medium fit perfect(VERY fitted on my 34Ds but not to much cleavage). The material is thicker than I though which was a plus. There is a very cute tie in the back which makes for the only two negatives: You can't wear a bra with it, and if you wear a sweater or something over it there is a lump where the tie is. It is both wedding and beach appropriate, perfect! Hope this helps any perspective buyers!
Why was the Afterglow color discontinued?...
Why was the Afterglow color discontinued? It's a very pretty color! I also think that blue color that isn't available but it shows the detailed dress pictures of is really pretty, too! Bummer!
The Blue color you see here is from 2007, that's why its not being sold anymore, great color though I agree. As for the "Afterglow" the reason companies list that, is because they are changing their "color story" for the next year and want to give you a heads up "Hey we are moving in a different direction, if you like this color snag it up" That sort of thing. Hope that answers your questions.
Many of the reviewers of this dress sound...
Many of the reviewers of this dress sound like they're are wearing smaller sizes. Any word from bigger, curvier women? I'm 5'10 and 185 lbs, and would probably order the XL. Sometimes a dress like this can drape in a way that makes a woman my size look, well, lumpy. I'd love to hear from a larger woman who owns this dress.
LOVE this dress. The picture didn't show it that well, but there is a cute tie thing on the lower back. I got the morning glory, and the color is gorgeous. The fit is great, too! I'm fairly thin, but have a tiny bit of the ol' stomach roll in really tight dresses. However, I found the cut of this dress very flattering. The only thing I might change is that it is a bit long-about three inches past my knee. Still, looks very cute. I am 5'7, about 120lbs. I am a 34B--the dress gives good support and just a tiny but if cleavage (not too scandalous). The fabric is kind of like bathing suit fabric--hoping it will be nice in the summer. It is pretty thick and seems durable.
I've had my eyes on this dress for a while and when I saw it on sale I had to order it. I usually wear Medium but since there were none on sale, I tried my luck with a Large. I received it today and am really happy with it. I am 5'6 (140lb)and the dress just covers my knees. The tie in the back made all the difference (fit-wise) coz otherwise Large is usually too wide around my small bust. This way I can tighten it as much as I need and the waist area is a bit loser, so I don't have to feel too self conscious (the fabric is really comfy but def kinda unforgiving..especially in a lighter color). This is going to be great for basically everything...dressy and casual. The only downside is that I have to wait until it is warmer outside to wear it ;-)
I Heart This Dress
I love this dress and would say it was my favorite, but for a shimmering silver number I have hanging in my closet. However, the Morning Glory dress is super stylish and comfortable and I'd like to have one in every color.
Nice dress, but no knots for me...
This dress was lovely, nice material, nice color; I just couldn't deal with straps that you need to tie in the back. I felt the lump from the knot when sitting back in a chair or when I tried it with a sweater. I prefer to have a dress where you don't need to adjust. I had also ordered the Patagonia Vitaliti dress, which fit me much better, no knot to tie in the back. So this one was returned.
