With a 95% certified organic composition that's Fair Trade Certified, prAna's Alana Hooded Dress is a comfortable alternative to your standard, run-of-the-mill dress.

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

If I could afford it, I'd buy one in every colour. Well, if they had more colours.

Although it's thin, it's still appropriate for winter, paired with some warm tights and boots. The fit is very flattering, with a true A-line skirt. The neckline is different enough to be interesting. I don't think I'd wear it without a long scarf - the solid colour just needs a little something else. (Unlike description, it does not have a shelf bra.)

Hasn't lost its mojo after a couple washings. Is true to size. A winner. (5'5", 125, strong build)

Dress is not as described

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

The description states that this dress has an internal shelf bra but the dress I received showed up with no internal shelf bra and the inside seam at the bust was ripped. was great about processing my return but the replacement dress I received didn't have an internal bra either, even though I confirmed with Prana's customer service that it should. This makes me wonder if Prana's quality is going downhill. At $80 for a very simple dress, I would have expected more.

Other than the internal bra issue, the dress is cute although it runs about a size larger than it should. I'm 5'1 107 pounds and the xs is pretty roomy and more like a small or medium.

The cut is cute and the fabric is super soft so if you can get a size that fits properly and don't care about the internal bra then this could be a great dress, but it wasn't for me.

Now my favorite dress!

  • Fit:True to size

This is now my most favorite dress - worthy every penny. The fabric is very cozy & comfortable with just enough stretch. It is high-quality - looks great with leggings & boots. I love it so much!

Effortless Dress

    You just put this dress on and it looks great! It has a really pretty scoop neck with a hood, which is very pretty on. The empire waist is super flattering, then the rest of the fabric in the dress just floats away from your body. It's not super snug and has a great A -shape through the bottom. Looks awesome with boots and tall socks!
