Rated 5 out of 5 by LeisureLady Fabulous summer dress!
This dress was a 'must have" for me. I did have to size down from my usual 8 to a 6 (which I never wear in J Crew dresses) but there was plenty of hip room. If you are very busty then you might want to order your usual size. The dress is fully lined and is not too sheer. Very flattering fit and the length was perfect for 5'7" (just brushed the top of my feet). Both colors were equally appealing so it was a difficult choice. I bought the white simply because it looked more 'summery". I gave it 4 stars on quality simply because it ran so big.

This maxi dress is wonderful. It is slimming (the chevrons help with that) and elegant. It can be worn with flat sandals for a more casual look or dressed up with heels. You could belt it, but I wouldn't. Definitely buy a full size smaller. I got a 6 even though I'm a size 8 normally. (36D up top too so pretty busty) This dress really elongated my figure. It will be great this summer, it's loose but not so much so that your figure gets lost in it.

This dress is so long! I am 5'3 and can usually wear regular sizes J.Crew maxi dresses. I am a size 8 in J.Crew clothing, but took this dress in a size 4. The fabric is high quality. The white color is perfect for summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sweatergirl Fantastic dress, f you can find the right fit
To say this dress runs large doesn't begin to describe the problem. I sized down from my usual Tall 4 to Tall 2 on the advice of a previous review, and was still swimming in it. There is no Tall 0, but I'm not sure even that would have been right. The quality of the workmanship and fabric is very good--well worth the full price. The linen was a bit stiff, but a couple of washings would make it very soft and comfortable. Not for me, alas, but if you are fuller figured, size down and go for this dress. It will a go to, dress it up or dress it down option for you.

I personally think that J Crew nailed it with this dress! I love it!
That said, it runs huge. I'm usually a 12, sometimes 14 and I had to take a 10 in this. It's lovely and simple and classic.
I advise going down 1 size if you're well endowed and curvier and 2 sizes if you're built on the leaner side.
It's a timeless dress that I will enjoy for many summers to come.
Thank you J Crew!
