Casual elegance just got easier. Slip into the Sundancer, grab you favorite pair of flip flops and head down to the beach for an evening bonfire.

I love dresses and love athletic clothes - this is the love child of both. You can look feminine but feel sporty comfty. This dress is great because the fabric wicks away sweat which is perfect for hot summers. I also like how it's simple but sexy - depending on your shoes and accessories you can make it a going out dress, a work appropriate dress, or a casual dress. Wish I had discovered Columbia dresses before now!
I would recommend this product.

This dress is gorgeous! The material is lovely. The dress is a hair longer than I expected, altogether great. I usually wear between a small and a medium, and bought a medium in this - it's a touch looser than I would prefer. Not sure whether the small would fit; the medium works well enough that I didn't want to pay for shipping.
I would recommend this product.

The material is very smooth and feels nice on, but it shows a little too much, even with the built in shelf bra. This could be solved with a little extra fabric on top or maybe even an actual bra.
Also, it is longer than I usually wear- I'm 5'4 and it hits mid knee.
I rated it Good, but it could be Great!
I would recommend this product.

El vestido está muy bueno, un corte y un tipo de tela que dan muy buena caída. Excelente para una persona activa, no se arruga nada!

I have a Columbia dress from a few years ago that I LOVE and so I was trying to replicate that purchase with this dress. I like the style but the dress runs a little small and the material is much thinner (and shinier) than my other dress. It feels like bathing suit material which is good if you are going to be wearing it the beach, but less so for my purposes.
I do not recommend this product.

This dress is ready for the active person. No wrinkles, packs well, sun retardant, keeps one cool. Great design and colors. Length is good for a tall person.

I expect to get a lot of mileage out of this dress. It fits well, and despite its athletic look, I can wear it for a night out. I bought the black one and the green printed one - they're different enough looking that I don't feel like I'm wearing the same dress. The fabric is a little thin, but not bad. The built-in bra has enough support that I don't need another one - which is great - (but I'm pretty small).
I would recommend this product.

This is my favorite dress and I own it in 3 colors. I'm 5'9 with 38DD. This dress has a built in bra shelf with adjustable straps and holds me perfectly. I took all my dresses on a recent trip to a very humid area. The wicking fabric is perfect for hot weather. I rolled them up in my suitcase and they came out perfectly everytime without any wrinkles. I also like that only light straps cover my back on those very hot days. I only wish they had more colors!
I would recommend this product.

Love this dress! Fits perfectly, drapes beautifully. At just above the knee, the length is just right. The adjustability of the straps is a good idea, though I really haven't needed to make any adjustment.
I would recommend this product.

Was looking for a dress to throw on quickly and really like how this fits. Fitted yet flows over my problem middle area without clinging. Fabric feels very nice. It is a bit low cut for my modest taste. FYI...I am 5'8", 150 lbs.
I would recommend this product.

Love this Dress! The only issue I have with it is that it is very thin material if I had ordered it in a light color and not the print it would have showed everything. Got the same dress last year and the material was ticker. You also have to adjust the Bust area it is not proportional.
I would recommend this product.

This is a great dress for work with a light sweater but easily cruises in an evening look. Comfy, cool and sleek.

I am 5'9 and 140lbs, long waisted,and of athletic build. If any of you are like me, you know dresses don't usually fit very well. The hip area of dresses is usually at our waists (!). Well, this one fits perfect to my shape. I am a 'c' cup and the top fits well too; front is lower cut, but boobs don't pop out when leaning over. The tummy is forgiving (had twins a couple years ago), but flattering. Material is just right, not see through.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this dress in black for everyday wear during the hot and humid east coast summers. I wanted something that didn't look too sporty, but would still keep me cool. This dress definitely fits the bill. I love the adjustable straps on the back and the overall fit of the dress. It's definitely flattering and comfortable. It does seem to run a bit large. I'm usually a spot on medium, but have to wear a strapless bra with this dress (I'm a 36A/B). A small would be too small, and I like having some space for my body to breathe in the dress, but would prefer it a teeny bit tighter. Overall, I'd recommend it and if there was a pattern I liked, I'd buy a second one!
I would recommend this product.

This dress is super comfy, but it seems to be a little big for a medium. I wear a 34C bra, and the supposed "shelf bra" seems a little baggy. Other than offering less support than I expected it is a nice dress. One other complaint is that it is a little longer than I expected. I may shorten it. Just the fact that I'm willing to alter a brand new dress instead of returning it should tell you how much I do like the feel of this fabric. It will be my staple dress this summer.
I would recommend this product.
