    Not a fan of the waist

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 168lbs

    Purchased for my wife who has been looking for a casual black dress for some upcoming travels. She said the fabric was a nice weight and was not sheer, but disliked the elastic waist band and felt it fit in an odd spot that caused the bottom to poof out in an unflattering way.

    Adorable, but not in the waist.

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    This was super cute, but the waist elastic doesn't stay put and ens up puffing. I have a longer torso, so maybe my waistline isn't quite right for the dress. Otherwise, it was very well made.

    I love the colors

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: s

    I bought this for my sister and here's her review:
    I'm not a fan of dresses but I love this one, the colors look much better than in the image, the material is cold which fascinates me and is very comfortable.

    Perfect Summer Dress

    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    I bought this for my girlfriend here's her review:
    This dress won me over. I've never enjoyed wearing dresses but this one is super comfortable. The elastic waistline can fall weird but a simple adjustment sets it right. I'm 5'8" and it hits me just above the knee. Highly recommended, very light weight and comfortable.

    Not for the big chested

      Really wanted to love his dress based off of the other reviews. I would have to say that this is not for the large chested woman. It seemed like it would have been super comfortable if it would have fit better.

      Highly Recommend

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: small
      • Height: 5'7"
      • Weight: 130lbs

      I love this dress. it fits so great and is very comfortable. Great to wear out on the town or just hanging around.

      Everyday easy

        This dress is cute and easy to wear. Throw it on over anything, the waist cinch adds some figure, and the length is perfect for a coverup or walking town pre/post beach. Soft material, true to size (purchased a Small for size 4/6).

        Gorgeous pattern, nice sundress

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

        Great colors and design. Fit is nice. Bodice is loose and could be taken in a tad with a saftey pin, but not necessary, as that is style and may be nice for someone with a larger bosom than me. Good length, and I am tall. Nice lightweight material for summer, but also would work well in spring/fall with a sweater and leggings. I have a long torso, and so the waist sits higher than the photo might suggest, but it looks fine, and I don't typically like high waists.

        Great color & style, but waist sits high

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Small
        • Height: 5'8"
        • Weight: 135lbs

        I am 5'8" (135#) and I ordered a S based on past Patagonia dress order experience- I find they tend to run big.

        I often have difficulty with waistlines hitting me at the right spot and I would say this is a bit high- just above my belly button- so it ends up looking more like an empire waistline instead. The elastic waistband provides some shape to it, but if you are long-waisted at all, I would pass. I don't think going up a size would help since it fits loose around the bootie and the top fits well, too, for a 36C bra size- falls just above the knee on me. Love the material though!

        I kept it and will wear it often, but offering tall sizes would be a bonus!

        Most comfortable dress ever!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: small

        This is the most comfortable dress ever! And still looks cute. I have it in black and the green as well. I like that it can be dressed up or down. Highly recommend!

        Beautiful and classic dress

        I dont know if I've tried a dress that patagonia has made that I havent loved.

        I like this dress a whole lot. I am tall and mostly torso so this dress hits me mid thigh. The key hole in the back is smaller than I expected based on the picture.

        Someone with a larger chest than I may have issue with the fit of the dress. (34 B/C) I just barely fit in the bust. I think if it were any smaller I would be uncomfortable with the way it would look.
