    I haven't worn this dress yet, but after trying it on I can review it. The material is 150 weight so in direct light, you can see your body's silhouette. I bought this dress in black to replace older dresses that no longer fit. I like the bodice of this dress and can accessorize with scarves, caplets, etc. When the weather transitions, or if I am in an office setting with air conditioning, I can wear my IB Bliss Wrap or my 3-Way Poncho (synthetic) top. For casual wear, this is perfect as is during the heatwave we just had and under a Levi jean jacket. It's a versatile dress that can go from casual Summer to layered bohemian Fall and Winter and Spring as well. Great value through STP I'll be back for more IB clothing. Shipping transit time was about a week; minimal shipping container; no hidden damages during transit.

    Wow, so glad I bought this dress. It's exactly as other reviews said. I wore it out of the box with a pair of sandals I ordered too. It's very soft and the fit was perfect. I like the way it lays with just a bit of flair at the bottom. I wore it to a baseball game in 100 degree weather.I was really amazed at how cool I stayed. Hard to believe I was wearing wool. Can't wait to wear it in Hawaii.

    This dress looks good even after being stuffed in a suitcase- a great travel piece!

    I ordered a medium -- I'm 5'6" and wear a 36B bra. I tend to get bloated easily and am always leery of ordering jersey-type dresses because they tend to show bulges, but not this dress. It's breezy and flow-y, without looking frumpy. It shows just the right amount of chest to make it a little fun and sexy. Like other reviewers, I prefer to wear a bra underneath when going out in public, which can make it a little too warm up top for hot summer days. That's typical though for me with built-in bra garments.

    I have the black, & like another reviewer, I wanted to sleep in this...it is so soft & snuggly (after I wash it). The built-in bra isn't supportive enough for me, so wearing a cute sport's bra, with the dress, does the trick. The dress can be dressed up, & dressed down. It didn't stretch-out during my wearing, so I can see it being worn multiple days, without needing to be washed (i.e. great travel piece). I got a lot of sand/dirt on it (while playing at a playground with a toddler), & it wiped/shook right off. A Lululemon running-back-pack left some pilling on my dress's lower-back. A pill-remover took away the pills. The skirt-part of the dress is slightly see-through, when wearing in sunlight.

    The Medium fits me just like it does on the model, except it's looser in my bust. For reference, I'm 45, 36B/C, 5'7", 150 pounds, muscular, athletic build, 29" waist (loose-ish-Mom-skin belly), 38" hips.

    Sometimes you find the perfect casual dress - so you have to buy a second one. I bought this in black. I am a 36A with a narrow waist and wide hips (40 inches). It's difficult to find a dress that accommodates my build. This dress is great!!! Comfortable (I live in Hawaii) and not hot. Graceful and flattering. I love the built in shelf bra. Yes, I have fallen asleep in it. If you have a bouncy chest you may find the top not sufficient to keep you "contained" but it has been perfect for me. I had to come back and buy the berry colored one! Both dresses have inspired my husband to compliment my outfit - so that's bonus points!

    Love this dress - comfortable, looks great. I am a 38 B and will probably wear a sports bra with it if I wear it out because I could use a little more support - otherwise, it is perfect for a casual summer dress. I am 157 and 5'7 and the large fits well. I would get the other colors if the price was right!

    Lovely berry color, great quality fabric....but my first thought putting this on was "wow, can I sleep in this?" and that thought just wouldn't leave my mind.

    It's a great dress, but I'm afraid it's too casual/sporty looking for the office, even with a sweater on top. It reminds me of either the best nightgown I've ever owned or its the first tennis outfit I've ever purchased (I don't play tennis....yet?).

    I'm 5'4 135lbs and B cup and purchased the Small. Bra + this dress (which has a shelf bra) is a little busty looking for my taste, but I'm not one to go out in public in only a shelf bra. Personal choice. Wish I could compare this fit to a Medium!

    Needless to say I'm obviously conflicted on this dress/nightgown/tennis outfit and will have to prance around my house a few more times before reaching a conclusion.

    I ordered this for an adult daughter and tried it on before sending it. Although I'm under 5'2" and not quite 100 lbs I wear a 34C and this dress in an XS was much too small in the bust. It was perfect on my daughter who's 5'4" and 100 lbs. and much less busty. She is thrilled and will order another color for spring. The purple is very pretty and fine Icebreaker wool is lovely.

    I'm 5'4" 130 lbs and the size S fit me perfectly. I'm not big busted (barely a B) so it was nice to find a dress that fit well up top without being tight over the hips. The built in shelf bra was great and the dress has a lovely soft drape and was very comfortable. I plan to get another in the vivid.
