Very nice for casual or parties
Wore this to the cocktail hour at a conference and felt good. It fit right in there with the other women who were wearing maxi dresses. As it was evening, I topped it with the Blair short sleevedd cardigan and they looked great together. a Great buy!

I love the way this dress looks and the easy care
I wore it all day to a grandsons wedding and got lots of praise and it does of course not wrinkle at all and is fun to wear!!

I am totally pleased with this dress - - the sizing, quality of fabric, and adaptability to various occasions. I look forward to good times with family and friends. One suggestion - - I would whip down the front facing before wearing as it tends to work out of place if not secured.

Beautiful, flattering dress!
I love this dress! I ordered a medium (12-14) and it fits perfectly for my 5'2-1/2", 160 lb. frame. It is long...to my ankles, but that will be ok for most occasions. I haven't worn it or washed it yet, but it seems like it will be fine.
One point I'd like to mention though... I have a bulging belly just below the breast band so I will wear a smoothing/sliming undergarment to help me look my best!

I love the feel and drape of this dress. It fits nicely in the bust without showing too much cleavage. It's way too long and I'll need to hem it, but that is pretty standard for me. I did as another reviewer mentioned and purchased a white shrug to wear with it to dress it up a little.

Extremely comfortable and forgiving
I loved this dress. It is light and airy and doesn't cling to those little bulges. The only thing that kept me from rating it 5, was because the length was a little short. I am 5' 4" and had to wear flats. If I wore any type of heel, it looks too short.

Order One Size Smaller
I bought this dress in Black, wore it for the first time last weekend, to a play at our local theater. It was perfect, casually elegant with black patent flat sandals and a small metallic bag. I was cool and comfy the entire evening, even though it was a hot humid night. The fabric is lightweight and comfortable, does not wrinkle, even after hours of sitting. I haven't washed it yet, but I am sure it will wash well, and also pack well. I will be taking it with me on my next cruise!
On the advice of other reviewers, I ordered a size smaller than what I usually order from Blair. I am 5'6" 145 lbs, usually order M or even L, but in this dress I ordered Small. It fits great! I love that the entire bodice is cut to conceal any kind of bra, even a cami or sports bra. Armholes are cut high enough that there are no bulges and no gaps, neckline is cut low enough to flatter, but high enough for modesty. The elastic empire waistband skims gracefully past my not-so-great natural waistline, adds visual length to the skirt, making me appear taller and more slender than I actually am, woo hoo! Even better, there's no need to wear shapewear with this lovely dress, it is figure-flattering on its own, and so comfy it almost feels like I'm wearing my favorite nightie! Good job, Blair!

I am 5' 4" tall and weigh 200 lb. with a small bust and a tummy. Following the size chart I bought the XL. When it came I tried it on and the armholes were huge and stuck out from the bodice. The skirt goes all the way down to the toes of my shoes. I did not have any gapping in the wrap bodice like some of the other reviewers experienced. I really could have bought the Large, which would have been very flattering to my ego. I even washed it thinking that the spandex would shrink it, but, alas, I will still have to alter it to save postage. Over all, it is a soft, pretty dress, and in the right size, an excellent bargain.
