Rated 4 out of 5 by Sarafe970 Versatile style.....
I think this dress will pack well and be a versatile addition to the items I'm taking on a European trip this winter. Can easily be dressed up or worn more casually.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Arlette Good basic dress in navy that isn't yet another black dress
I was pleased with the dress at the outlet clearance price. I did not really love the shirt tail hem and the sleeves will require my hemming them an inch (easy), but at the lower price, OK. I wanted something that would work in the mild Texas winters where it is most often 70 and 80 degrees, yet summer looking attire doesn't look right -- and something that could work for "business" attire if needed. With a two different inexpensive costume jewelry pieces, the dress takes on two different looks. Also, the dress works very well with flats instead of the heels featured if one wants a more casual (or simply comfortable) feel. I am 5'1" and 130 pounds and "pear shaped" with a small bust -- this style as simple as it is actually works well and is "slimming" on me (I got PM for my larger hips). Wish the neckline did not plunge as much, but this is probably because if I were thinner my size would have been PS or PXS and neckline would have been higher.

I am 5'10" and about 185 pounds...sometimes I order a tall size, sometimes a misses. The dress was shorter on me than in the picture, something I'm used to. For me, this dress was too short. I'm just not comfortable with a mid-thigh dress.
I ordered the large, wanting to avoid the tent-dress look. I thought the fit in the chest and waist was flattering. I also liked the neckline. I'm blond and fair skinned...the blue was an excellent compliment to my skin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DONTE Loved the marine color, BUT...
the dress does not look/fit right on me (5'4", 115 lbs); the XSP was too short and tight across the shoulders, so I exchanged for a Small misses, which was too wide and long for me...... but the feel of the material was great, the color was awesome, and i was very disappointed that it did not work for me. :( this dress, with correct sizing, and POCKETS would be perfection! It would be lovely on someone with a different body type, i am sure

Rated 4 out of 5 by mcg76 Love the color
This blue looks great on. Dress is roomy, as it appears in the picture, even on a non-model's body. But it looks ok as is in the dark color, and can be belted or worn with a sash for more shape. Fabric is not clingy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mya5 Great color and fabric
This is a very comfortable easy dress, easily dressed up or dressed down.
Feels nice, fits well, keeps it's shape. Love the color.
I'd buy it in another color as well. Simple, pretty, nice style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EAS10 great go anywhere dress. dress it up or down. comfortable easy fit.
I bought this dress for traveling as it won't wrinkle in a suitcase and I can wear it with jewellery or a scarf and heels or just with flats for a more casual look. I love the fit. I bought a.medium because I don't want it clingy. Usually, I take a small or a size 8/10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vegedietarian Surprisingly chic, and comfortable too.
Other reviewers almost scared me off with random complaints about the shirttail hem being too casual, fabric clingy, but I'm delighted to have snapped this dress up on a sale price. The fabric is sleek but not clingy on me, and the hem looks unique, a bit flirty. Style of dress and sleeve length make it suitable for dressing up a bit with some jewelry or a scarf. I often wear a size Misses' M, but have found many JJill articles run large enough that a Petite Small fits me best. Am 5'6" and somewhat short in the torso, straight bodied with substantial 34D bust. This dress in Petite S is perfect--although doesn't hang loose from the shoulders, as on model in photo. Husband gives it a high rating as "a bit sexy", and that's pretty nice to hear when you're "beyond middle age." I expect it to be great to pop on for lunch with friends or dinner and a movie, any season except extreme heat (because of sleeve length.)
