Rated 5 out of 5 by fablifeforever Easy summer weekend dress
As other reviews stated, this dress looks just "ok" on the hanger. I'm usually a size 12 in J.Crew dresses and skirts with a curvy figure, 5'8" tall, 38D, and took a large in this dress which was perfect. It hits at the knees which is longer than the oxford shirt version of this dress so the regular length in this dress was fine for me (I also needed the tall in the oxford version). The material is a soft chambray, lightweight without being flimsy and it is relaxed but flattering to my figure - my curves weren't lost by the simple shape of the dress. I'll be wearing this with peep toe booties and a fun necklace for an easy weekend look!

The fabric is wonderfully soft and drapey, and I love that it hits just above the knee ( I am 47 after all) .
I am 5'5", 122 pounds with an athletic build. The small fits me just like the model - loose and comfortable but not sloppy - but I could have also worn the xs.
The sales associate had the dress on when she rang me up- very cute but not cutesy. She did mention that it could shrink a bit after washing which is another reason I stuck with the larger size.
The color is the perfect chambray blue for summer chillaxin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by shopgrrrl Great fabric and cut, but sleeves too bulky for me
This dress fits on the big side; I normally take size 12 or L, but could wear the M for a less baggy fit, which I preferred to the L, but the L looked okay, too. I'm 5'9" and found the length fine, just above my knees. The fabric was really nice and soft and fell nicely. I think this would make an amazing travel dress, very comfy for all-day wear, but chic enough to go out for lunch/dinner without looking like you're wearing traveling clothes. The showstopper for me was the sleeves. I found the rolled cuff too bulky under the arms, and it stuck out a bit on top despite the softness of the material. I have big shoulders, so perhaps I'm more sensitive to this, but I don't like anything that broadens my shoulders. I also thought the rolled sleeves might be awkward/bulky if you threw on a cardigan. So.....nearly a great dress for me, but too bad about those sleeves.

This dress, on the hanger, was okay. I tried it on, and didn't want to take it off. It's soft and simple, and the perfect summer dress. I'm 6 ft and slender- a 2 or 4. I have this dress in the popover- and needed the tall. This one fits longer than the other styles. I went with the small and it fits perfectly! I cannot wait to wear this!!! Try this on! ❤️!

I wanted to love this dress (I have a green one with a zipper in the back from last summer that is similarly styled) but I just find it to be a bit of a frumpy style. It doesn't have pockets and it's rather large. The material is soft and comfortable but the shape doesn't do anything for anyone's figure. I'm 5'9.5" and around 115 lbs. I got the regular small and it's wide. If I were to exchange it, I'd try the xs, but I think I'll probably just return it. It's a good idea but not nicely tailored.
