This is a light weight dress that will pack well. It does have larger armholes than I would like but will be ok with a black bra. It has a nice fit.
I would recommend this product.

It does run a little large but it is a very flattering cut for me. I love the way it will wash and wear and doesn't wrinkle. Perfect for travel. I had lots of compliments. And jewelry or a different scarf makes it look totally different. You can dress it up or keep it simple. I love the secret pocket. I'd love to see this dress back in your line in some new colors next spring!!! I'd buy one of each.
I would recommend this product.

I love this dress! It is so light weight and easy to wear. Add a scarf or jewelry and you can really dress it up. I wore it and 2 of my friends want one. My only complaint is it's a little tight through the back and I'm small, it feels like it's cut a little smaller through the back, but nothing that keeps me from not wearing it. Taking it to Europe and would love to wear it everyday!!!
I would recommend this product.

I usually wear a size small (4-6), but this dress was enormous with huge armholes and material through the bust line. Because I needed a simple black travel dress, I purchased the extra small. It is a little tight but acceptable. With many Columbia items, I find that the sizing is wacky. Best thing is to always try items on! The quality is fine - this is simply a sizing issue.
I do not recommend this product.

Geez, I really struck out on my whole order. I don't know what is going on with Columbia's sizing. Based on the size chart I am a size small. The dress I received fits the measurements on the large maybe even extra large chart. This is ridiculous. Red Hibiscus is more of an orange. The dress has one nice zip pocket which would be a plus if it even remotely fit.
I do not recommend this product.

I have been looking for a dress like this for three years. The fit is a little loose so that is cool and comfortable but doesn't look like a sack. The length is right above the knee , very flattering. Unlike many of these athletic style dresses, it isn't too narrow in the hips. The zip pocket is perfect to carry a key, bank card and a lipstick. I absolutely love this dress.
I would recommend this product.
