Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect, polished, flattering I bought this dress in navy and it is just lovely. The weight of the fabric is heavy enough that it is quite structured, and the lines are just perfect, but I think it will also be comfortable in summer. It will look great alone, under a blazer, with a sweater or with a collared shirt under. I also imagine I'll be able to dress it up or down so that it's an easy day-to-night piece. One note on length: I am 5'11 and so often buy tall sizes, but I bought this in regular and it is still perfectly office-appropriate (falls at top of my knee). Considering buying all of the colors before it sells out... April 13, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Tag says dry-clean! Most disappointed to receive this and find that the tag says dry clean when the web-site says machine wash. Lagoon color is beautiful, overall fit is great. However, I'm 5'3" and the petite is too short to be work appropriate, falls 2" above knee. Most bummed by dry clean. April 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect work dress! The reviews were glowing about this dress so I was eager to check it out. The five star reviews are spot on! The material is substantial but not too heavy for summer. It's the perfect dress for work but with the right jewelry and shoes, great for a wedding or party. I am always a size 6 in J Crew dresses and this fit perfectly. I am smaller on top (a size 2 or 4) but this dress isn't too big in the chest area. The material has visual interest and is super comfortable. Get this dress!! June 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is the best! I have turned to J Crew clothing because the quality is good and the sizing is consistent, which is important with mail order. But this dress...it is above and beyond. While I was getting it tailored (I am a pear, which is not J Crew's fault), I received compliments from other customers at the tailors. My tailor declared to them, she only wears J Crew! May 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by classic sheath dress with great texture The fabric of this dress has a tiny bit of stretch, which makes it supremely comfortable to wear. The seaming is very flattering, even for someone like me who is busty. Fits TTS. The lagoon color is just stunning and works well for work with a blazer or cardigan and transitions to evening with a cocktail ring and heels. April 8, 2016
