Great dress!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

This is my favorite dress right now! Great shelf bra for support and it's very comfy yet flattering. It does have a more tight fit than some of patagonia's other things so I did go up a size to get a nice fit! The fabric is not necessarily an athletic fabric, but it is very easy to move in and I have not noticed much stretching out throughout the day or a change in fit, except in the bra area, I hafe noticed that after a couple days of wearing the dress that area (under the armpits) can get a little stretched.

This dress is perfect!

I LOVE this dress! I'm a bit smaller on top (34A), so I try to find as many tops and dresses with built-in bras as I can, but I really don't like the "workout" look. This dress is exactly what I like. It's a standard shelf bra, but the print gives enough coverage that I don't feel any nipple exposure. The back is really nice for summer evenings, and it's just dressy enough that I can toss on a cardigan to wear it to the office. I started with an XS - I'm right on the edge of the measurements, but I usually tend to wear closer to the XS in other brands, especially with stretchy fabrics. But the fabric on this one is not stretchy as with other athletic styles, it's more cotton with a little give, but not stretchy really at all. I ended up exchanging for a S, so I'd recommend sizing up if you're between sizes. I really hope Patagonia continues this style!

5 stars!

I bought this for my roomie and she loves it!
"I love the fit of the dress, I am approx 130 lbs 5' 4 athletic build--size small fit perfectly. The dress hits right above my knees and I really enjoy having the built in bra. I really wish Patagonia would sell the dress in different colors (not neon or crazy print) otherwise I'd buy more! Overall 5/5 stars for fit, durability, and style."

I want this in every color.

I now have the Spright Dress in two colors. I love love this dress. It is SO easy and SO comfortable. I bring this camping, to festivals, and it's my go-to after-work attire at home. I abuse it really, to the point where my partner tells me I should donate all my other clothes because I will probably wear this anyway. I'm 5'8, 150 pounds, and the medium fits great. One of my Spright dresses is slightly shorter than the other for some reason, but I don't care. I am small-chested, so the built-in bra is PERFECT and lets me feel freeeee! The material is soft and not weird work-out material (I hate that) and there is no nipple show-through as with the Morning Glory dress. Ok anyway buy this.

Me feelz purty;)

This dress is ultra comfy and really cute. I havent done much in it per say, but I did wear out and about the farmers market and ate a tamale in it. fits perfect for my frame hugs in all the right places. YOu must get this dress!

Wish there were more colors I liked.

The fit of this dress is a 5 out of 5, likely due to the forgiving fabric and shelf bra. It's cute, and makes me look more fit than I really am. Thank you Patagonia.

Best dress

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

I love this dress! Light and stretchy material for the summer yet durable for activity. I am 5'5" 130lbs ordered a small. The medium fits as well just a touch looser.

Great dress, nice length

This looks and feels great on. Too often short dresses are too short on me. This is a nice length and the Medium size hits me mid thigh(Im 5'10 145 pounds with a longer torso) Really comfortable and packs well without wrinkling in your luggage. The Blazing Strip color looks even better in person.

Great dress!

Love this dress. Nice fabric, good length, cute on. Washes well too.

I normally wear a 10 but had to get a large since the Med was too snug in the bust (I'm a 36C)


  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Gave this dress as a gift to a friend. Great for casual but cute beach road tripping and transfers well to wearing out and about. The angle lines are very flattering and it hung long enough for my 5' 8" frame that I didn't have to worry when being active or bending over.

Love this dress!

    This is THE perfect summer everyday dress. The fabric is soft and breathable. Not clingy at all. I have a mom figure, about size 8 and this dress is super flattering and forgiving in all areas. The stripes help camouflage imperfections. The shelf bra is super comfy and I'm ordering another one before they disappear. I ordered a M. Really cute as well.


      I LOVE this dress! I bought it on Steep and Cheap awhile back in the champagne stripe when it was available. I get so many compliments on it! It's super comfortable and perfect for warm weather. Even looks cute with a shrug for work.

      I'm fairly small chested, so I wear a strapless with this since the top fits a little loose (bought a small); this dress is REALLY flattering!

      My only dress.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I'm not a dress wearer...ever...but saw this on Steep & Cheap and for some reason bought it. I love it, it's so comfortable and breathable. It's great in the summer and I get lots of compliments on it.

      Didn't Work for Her

        My spouse was recently shopping for a handful of easy, casual dresses to wear while spending a long stint in the mid-Atlantic part of the country where July & August are hot & humid. She picked up a Patagonia Spright dress for this purpose, but was quickly disappointed once she tried it on. She fits most casual dresses quite well in the 4 to 6 size range. This one did not work at all, with the overwhelming comment being "not flattering". She picked up some other dresses from NAU and Lole and liked those much better.

        great dress if you pick the right size??

          i want to be in love, but im' just not... I sized up (to the medium) as i'm always right on the border between sizes... to allow for a bit more room through the tummy and hips (ultrarunner) but it made it baggy in the chest (again, ultrarunner--ha!). i purchased a small in the long kamala dress and it's form fitting... looks nice, but no room for not keeping the tummy "engaged"... I'm not sure if sizing down to the small on the sprite would have been the trick?? hmmm... oh well... it's very comfy, but just baggy in the chest... which is not a great look... but it is good for reminding me to have perfect posture. :)

          love this dress, and i don;t normally like dresses.

            not one to consider myself a 'dress' kind of girl. however, Patagonia has made wearing a dress comfortable and sporty! this dress has an awesome shelf bra that cuts down on the amount of clothing you have to pack on trips. also, its not a short-short-short dress, gives you the extra inch or two for the added comfort of knowing you aren't showing your hind end!

            Super Cute

              This dress is very cute, I get tons of compliments when I wear it.
              It is lightweight, comfortable and fits true to size.
              For sizing reference, I am 5'5", 135 lbs and the M fit me perfect.
              The dress sits about 2" above my knees. Perfect length.
              I think I will get this in another color.
