In one day, I wore this dress, bicycled to and from the office (tucked dress hem into my Spanks to keep it off the chain) on the train, to a school function, to the art museum for a concert and showing, and walked two miles in the city, in 88° heat. The fabric and drape feel great. The cut is flattering. The dress is sewn well. I have washed it five times. After washing on delicate, I usually toss it in the dryer for a bit on low heat and then line dry. Love that I can wear it without bra showing, but if you add a shelf bra to some of your dresses, and a light sweater to the Columbia clothing line and I'd be so grateful. Since I wear this to the office, and out to dinner, a light 3/4 length sleeve sweater of same fabric and quality would complete its functionality. Add adjustable straps/snaps, so I don't have to tuck it into my Spanks, to ride my bike, and I'd be awed.
I would recommend this product.

bought this is two colors, super comfortable, can dress up or keep nice and casual. Only complaint is that it is big in the top/arms for the size. I got a Small and it fit perfectly through waist and legs, but wish the straps were about an inch or two tighter
I would recommend this product.

Love the dress. I bought two last year in another striped pattern. I'm 5'4 and they are true maxi dress length. Super comfortable and flattering. Highly Recommend!

I thought this dress would be wrinkle free, soft and flowing. It is cotton and somewhat heavy. Might be perfect for some but I wanted it for the basic black dress for travel.
I do not recommend this product.

I got the maxi dress in black and it's a great little basic dress. It's just a tad on the short side which is why I gave it 3 stars. I'm 5'6, 125lbs and most maxi dresses fit just right in length on me.
It also runs a tad large, I got the XS and it fits perfectly but I would normally wear a S.
I would recommend this product.

Bought this dress for a trip to Hawaii, but I think it will do well for Washington state summers, as well. Fabric is soft. Nice dress!
I would recommend this product.
