    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Available This is the second year in a row that I have tried to find a comfortable knit dress from LL Bean only to discover that what I like is unavailable. It is only May and as another reviewer pointed out, it has been cold in the East and until recently not weather that would lead one to look for spring clothes. Another reviewer mentioned that she is tall and the dress is too short (short women seem to find it too long.) I'm 5' 10" and in my 70's. It would be so nice to find a comfortable dress like this that would cover my no longer young knees. It seems that every longer dress has no sleeves. LL Bean, how about coming to the rescue of women such as i?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavenly Warm Weather Dress Wonderful fabric (I chose the green print) feminine style, down to the just-below-the-knee length. Yes, there are quite a few of us who do not want dresses or skirts above-the-knee. If your usual sizing tends to be on the end of the medium range, going up to the large would be a recommendation, especially due to the rayon knit fabric. As far as the v-neckline design, either sewing in a small snap, a few stitches, or an appropriate jewelry/pin---makes this versatile, tasteful print dress a most comfortable favorite for more than a few years to come. P.S. LL Bean's Customer Service Team.......are the best I've ever encountered!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Dress I love this dress. I am 5'4" 150 pounds and purchased the large. It fits great and falls below the knee. I wear a tank underneath to fill in the V-neck gap and it looks great. This dress is extremely comfortable and couldn't be easier to care for. I wear about a 2-1/2 inch pump with it. It also looks good with pretty much any kind of sweater but, when necessary, I pair it with a shorter length cardigan. I love the style with its empire waist, which is very forgiving if you carry weight at the waistline, like I do. It's a very lovely dress and I am very appreciative that L.L. Bean carries it. I hope they will continue to carry this type of style.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A wonderful dress! I had bought the sleeveless version of this dress last summer and, because of the low neckline, found I needed to wear a camisole with it. The problem was that with the narrow shoulder, both bra straps and camisole straps made frequent appearances. The new short-sleeved version solves this problem. The surplice top and high waistline are flattering to a curvy figure and I get all kinds of compliments whenever I wear this dress. The only reason I don't give this a five star rating is that I feel the fabric is just a tad thin. Still, the plusses way outweigh that small minus. With the addition of sleeves, this dress is a winner!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Change!! Got this yesterday. I shop LL Bean for the quality, but lately the style has not been anything to catch my eye....however, this is a very nice step in the right direction!! The fabric flows nicely, it will pack beautifully and the neck is not cut too low. This is a dress that I can wear without fear of exposing body parts when I move, bend, etc. I got a medium, and I would normally take a large. The cut is a bit generous, so the medium works well for me, I'm 5'8 and a standard 12 in most clothing. I would love to see more items like this offered! Now, if the weather would just cooperate, I could wear my new dress!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely dress! I bought the black knit dress first because it was recommended for travel. It arrived and it has quickly become my favorite dress, it's comfortable, classic, and is loose and clingy in all of the right places. I bought a medium (I'm 5'8 and 165 pounds - I carry most of my weight in my thighs so my the medium is perfect for my waist). I cannot believe these dresses! Comfortable, flattering, and perfect for a day in the office or a weekend out. I bought the pink summer knit dress next and I love it just as much! I hope LL bean continues to make more of these dresses in different colors. Lovely! A solid lavender, blue or green dress would be a great addition!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dress Superb fit! I am 5'10", and the dress is knee-length, good to wear to school functions and church. The fabric is quite resilient, it looked quite crumpled when it first came out of the dryer, but as one reviewer noticed once it hangs, all wrinkles come out as if it's been pressed. It's very flattering and, I think, it would suit any figure. I bought it in medium in trillium red. I am in between S and M, and Small would have probably worked as good, thanks to empire waist. I want it and will buy it in every color offered, when it becomes available again. Please consider it in as many vivid colors (and prints, e.g. flowers) with long sleeves for the fall collection, LLB!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice summer weight, but problems with cut I bought this in hunter/blue. I don't hate myself in it, which is really saying something. But it's so low cut, I feel obscene. I sewed it so it meets up higher, but I STILL had to wear a camisole with it. If you're comfortable showing serious cleavage, you won't mind it. I'm a teacher and it just feels wrong having any cleavage at all showing. Secondly, I'm quite short (5'3") and it's right below my knee. I would imagine on anyone of average height, it will be mid-knee or above. So disappointing because it looks great on the model, and I really wanted a long sleeved one. It does wash fine, and the material was so light and airy on this 95 degree day.
