Would actually work for hiking!

Hides sweat, stays in place, breathable. Great for dirty jobs! Makes me feel pretty

September 26, 2021

very cute dress

Tried on the black in an XS first. was a little tight so bought if for my daughter. It fit her perfectly. I bought the green in a small for myself, and it was too large and the material didn't feel as nice as the black, so I returned it. the waistband also seemed a bit thicker than the black one and bulky. Not sure if they were made differentl... Read Morey or with different material, but the black one was just less stiff. A less dramatic deep round neck would also be preferable especially for a more athletic dress. more of a bateau neckline.

Thanks for the feedback on the fit. There can be slight fabric feel differences between colorways. We'll pass along the neckline suggestion to our design team.

Comfort meets fashion

This dress is super comfortable and stylish, I always get compliments on it! I would happily own more colors too. It's a good throw on for travel or around town days. It has good pockets and the fabric is slightly stretchy but not baggy. I like the cinch at the waist as it keeps it flattering. Nice dress!

I have the jumpsuit also. I love this.

Super cute versitle dress!

I love this dress so much that I purchased an extra one for when I wear this one out as it's one of my go to daily outfits. It's super comfortable, breathable and doesn't wrinkle. It also washes well and can be dressed up or down. It works well with different types of jackets. The criss cross of the back and hem makes it stand out fr... Read Moreom just a plain black dress. I also received a ton of complients when I wear this dress. My sister also loved it and ended up ordering it the green color (XL) as it was out of stock in black. She also loves the fit and fabric and has plans for it to be her go to dress for upcoming trip to Disney. Of note, I wear a size small and my sister wears a size XL and this dress works really well for different body shapes and sizes.

Need special bra and skirt is too tight and top too loose.

I tried this on in a Patagonia store and it was a perfect fit. I ordered the same exact size online and the fit was not as comfortable and ran smaller in the skirt area (I hadn't gained weight) and looked like I needed a special bra. For a dress I thought I could just throw on and wear turned out to be not as comfy and more complicated. So I r... Read Moreeturned it.

Hello Andrea, thank you for the review on the Fleetwith Dress. We're sorry to hear the fit didn't work out, perhaps this cut doesn't work well for your body type. We recommend checking out our [Women's Organic Cotton Roaming Dress]( It's similar, but has a slightly different cut that might work better for you.

August 1, 2021

Get it. Just get it.

This is one of my favorite pieces of clothing I own. I find myself constantly reaching for it and sad when it needs to be washed. Will be getting it in multiple colors.

July 23, 2021

My summer uniform

Keeps me cool and dry while looking like a million bucks!

July 18, 2021

Super comfortable and cute!

I love this dress. I can wear it for almost anything and its super comfy. It also has really deep pockets that actually hold things which is awesome too. My whole phone can fit in there with extra room

July 15, 2021

Very cute!

Purchased in all three colors! Wear with wedges and a hat for a patio happy hour!

July 14, 2021

Size up if you've got thighs and a booty

I was so excited for this as a casual summer dress, but the fit does not work for my curvy/athletic body type. I'm 5'5" and 155 with a bust, hips and thighs - but proportionate - and purchased a M. The top half fits looser than anticipated (and you have to find a bra that works with the oddly strappy back), and the bottom half was ni... Read Moreght-club tight. I thought about returning for a L, but that would be way too loose on top. Bummed because I wanted to love it. :/

July 12, 2021


Looks great and so comfortable!

July 11, 2021

Flattering, Simple, comfortable

Bought this dress in every color. Flattering cut, sporty yet dressy, Super comfy material, easy to wear.

July 9, 2021

legs for days

I love this dress. I have long legs so never wear short dresses but this one is super cute, very comfortable and VERY flattering.

July 8, 2021

Great Design

This is one of my favorite Pat dresses because it is a flattering design, fabric washes and dries perfect, and most importantly it has lots of pockets. Lately I dont buy anything without pockets. Oh, and not to forget, you can wear a bra with it. Built in bras are great, but you dont get pockets.

July 6, 2021

I wear this every day

I purchased this dress in black last year, and just bought the plume grey. It is easily my favorite piece of clothing and I wear it just about every day - it is sweat-wicking, comfortable, and stretchy. I have a curvy/athletic body and my thighs and butt are the biggest part (5'2, 155 lbs, 34DD, size 29 jeans) so the bottom part of the dress... Read More is a little tight compared to how loose fitting the top is but it is still flattering. I wear this dress for casual/everyday wear, walking the dogs and biking short distances.

July 5, 2021

So comfortable, great fit

I saw this dress on a friend and had to have one. The fabric is super light and the fit is really really flattering, especially the cross back.. I have a large chest and did find I am in between sizes, L seemed best. I bought the other colors. Its perfect for summer and I wear it to work as well.

July 2, 2021

I really wanted to love this dress...

I was so excited when I saw this dress, but it doesn't quite work. I ordered a medium and found the bottom to be too snug around the hips, creating pulling/creasing. That said, the top was a bit too large-billowing fabric around arm holes. A larger size would definitely not work on the upper portion, so I'm a bit stuck. I also found the f... Read Moreabric to be heavy and scratchy- plastic-y feeling. Since this dress is pretty short, not sure I would wear to hike or run. A lighter weight, softer fabric would've been preferred for this casual wear, since it's not really suited for performance.

Please make a petite version

I love this dress in theory; the fabric is lightweight and feels silky and smooth, the colors are beautiful, and the cut is super cute! Unfortunately for me, this dress (like many other Patagonia dresses) makes me look like Ive been raiding my big sisters closet. The proportions are just too big for my frame. Ill keep my fingers crossed for an XXS ... Read Moreor petite size someday!

June 20, 2021


I am a B cup. 5.3 and weigh 130lbs I wear this walking, gardening, beach, errands, home after work. Length is lower thigh on me. Would recommend!!

June 18, 2021

Perfect summer dress

So comfortable, so flattering, perfect fit. Im 510, 145, M fits perfectly. Slimming, covers the midsection just how youd want it to. Perfect for summer evenings on the patio with friends or out to dinner. Wish it came in brighter colors - I have black but would love a mustard yellow, dark raspberry, or emerald green.

June 15, 2021

Super Comfy

This is a great casual dress that is modest...I can dress it up or down and has a really loose, light feel. I love the material for a hot summer day!

June 14, 2021

Bought it in 3 colors - its that awesome

Bought this in the steel blue color. Wore it once, loved it so much I bought the other two colors that day. Travels well, dresses down easily but can also go out for casual dinner. Great for hot & humid climates as is. Throw on a fleece if its chilly. Love it!

June 12, 2021


Awesome dress that I can wear into town or on date night. Find it to be comfortable fabric and washes well

June 6, 2021

Definitely worth it! So versatile.

I bought this at REI and changed in the car, it fit perfectly. I havent taken it off! Love how versatile it is and the quick drying material makes it great for camping and adventuring.

June 3, 2021

Lightweight Cute Dress

Love the fabric - light weight - perfect for walking/watching sports on hot days or just a casual day out. Definitely recommend!

May 15, 2021


Perfect dress for camping, could wear for sports (tennis, pickleball, and golf) and casual wear! Loved the material and the way it fits.

May 13, 2021

Top too large bottoms too small

I bought the same style skirt non-romper style and it fit great (same size). This rompers skirt portion was way small and the top way too big.

May 10, 2021

Comfort is key

This is the most comfortable dress I have ever had! No joke! It makes it look like you tried to "dress up" but in reality is like you can roll out of your bed with your dress on (I slept in it well), put your hair up and head to work. Wow, I just love the ease of looking good and being comfortable. Also, this dress is light weight, breath... Read Moreable, and has great pockets! I plan to buy one in every color!

A staple black dress for spring and summer!

A very versatile dress for spring and summer. It can go from everyday wear running errands, backyard BBQ to a special event. The crisscross of the back of the dress make it unique. The color black makes it work for casual or dress-up. I love the length which is above knee but not too short to be in appropriate to wear to work. Given the back of the... Read More dress, I'd wear a short little jacket. The type of jewelry and shoes worn with this dress makes it easy to dress it up or down too. It's really comfortable too and doesn't wrinkle easy, which is the type of clothing I purchase. I did purchase in the blue pattern too; however that color with pattern not as versatile so I'm keeping the solid black dress in stead.

April 30, 2021

I wanted to keep this dress! But...

I love everything about this dress except that it's a little too big on me, which gives it it sort of "sloppy" look. I ordered XS, I'm petite, 5' 1" 108lbs. The dress is just a little too big all over. So close. Love the design, fabric, color... but I just can't keep a clothing item that just looks like it doesn&#... Read Morex27;t quite "fit".

Cute design, didnt work out though

This dress is absolutely adorable however it fit strangely on me. Im around 56 and 150lbs, athletic build and bigger chested however the dress did not fit properly.

Very flattering Dress

I got this dress after seeing a colleague with it on and its so flattering. Its my favorite dress in my closet.

April 25, 2021

So comfortable!

I ordered a large. It fit perfectly on top but was a little tight on bottom. Ordered an XL and of course now the bottom fits and the top is a little loose. Its ok, my weight fluctuates a bit so I have both! Its my go to outfit with flip flops! Love that it has pockets!

April 17, 2021

Great casual dress

I have purchased 5 of these dresses, 2 for me, 2 for my daughter and one for a friend. I love that they are a casual dress that you can wear for a wide range of occasions. Keep up offering that type of option.

April 14, 2021

Comfortable and flattering

As a short, curvy woman it is difficult to find clothing that fits and feels comfortable that is also flattering. I ordered this dress and liked it so much I purchased another one in a different color.

So flattering!

I am relatively curvy with a larger bust and this accentuated me without feeling exposed. I can wear this to any occasion and its so comfortable! I was shocked when I tried it on!

March 29, 2021

Cute, a little loosey-goosey

I got the blue one, great print. Super lightweight fabric, breathable. It's a bit loosey-goosey in the fit, but for casual wear running around with my kids it's fine.

November 14, 2020

absolutely weird fit

This will only fit you if you have a superman-like V figure and an extreme one. I am 5'8, 155 lb, athletic-curvy and purchased size L as I was afraid the bottom would be too snug after reading the reviews. The skits fits ok, but the top is crazy large and bulky and I am pretty big chested (34DD). Looks stupid.

September 14, 2020

Perfect casual dress!

I was a little unsure when ordered but this dress is perfect. Love the pockets and the fit. It's super comfortable and I've even come back to order in another color!

September 6, 2020

Fave new summer dress.

I am 55 135 and got a small. Its a definitely fitted through my thighs but medium is too big. I wear it all the time for hiking, on the boat, and all around summer stuff as it dries quickly. Only draw back is it needs a cross back bra. Have it in the olive green and muted pink.

September 4, 2020

Love this dress

Very comfortable! Comfortable & keeps me cool while working & walking out in my humid climate. Highly recommend!

Favorite Dress

This is my all time favorite dress. I have it in multiple colors and I still want more! It is comfortable and repells liquids well. I wear it hiking or to the office. It is fantastic. GET IT! You won't regret it.

For Tall Women

I am 5'4" 131 currently, got the S and this dress is super cute and comfy but could be more flattering. As other's have mentioned, it kind of has a drop waist but you can pull it up. I have learned to live with my big legs but this dress does not flatter them because of the cut and material. If you have perfect legs or are tall, it w... Read Moreill look amazing. I can see this dress being great hanging out at a pool or traveling somewhere hot (*hope*) so I am still happy with it besides it's quirks. I got an especially adorable print that's been discontinued so it still has a lot going for it.

Great fabric, sooo comfortable!

I was so impressed with the fleetwith dress that I bought it in 3 colors and would have gotten a 4th if it had been available...the fabric keeps me dry in the Florida summer humidity moves and stretches with activity and the straps fall perfectly in line to hide my racer back bra underneath. So many compliments every time I wear it.

July 13, 2020

The BEST active dress

I can't get over how much I love this dress. The fabric is amazing. so light and soft with great stretch. Has perfect pockets with a flattering fit. I'm 5'9'' and 130 lbs.

July 13, 2020

Perfect Throw On Dress

I love this dress! The top is a little big/ baggy but if the waistband hits the right spot on my waist it just looks like a loose fitting top. The bottom is a little snug but not uncomfortable. I love this dress for casual wear and being outdoors! Will likely buy another.

July 13, 2020

Perfect Summer Dress -- Fit Not For Every Shape Though

I have two Fleetwith rompers/jump suits and love them so much I also bought the dress. Couldn't be happier! It is perfect for an active Summer day. I agree with other reviewers about the fit.

Runs Way Large

I'm 5'5", around 125lbs, moderately small chest, and I was SWIMMING in the size small. The color and fabric are great (I ordered the kale green) and I'm hoping to exchange it for the XS but it's out of stock now. Hoping it comes back, otherwise I might settle for the black.

Are you guys for real? What kind of body type was this made for? I ordered a Medium, and I'm absolutely swimming in this. I'm an A cup, but do have very wide shoulders and ribcage.

LOVE this dress so much

I love this dress so much I came back to order the other colors! I have a hard time finding dresses that fit well as I am long waisted (I’m 5’8’’ and wear size medium) so many dresses end up being too short. This dress is the perfect length, and isn't too tight.

Fab Dress!

I love this dress and was sad that the the fit wasn’t quite right on me. It’s made for a longer torso (I’m only 5’2”, purchases a mediu), but because I bought it on sale, I didn’t hesitate to have it altered. Now it fits great and I can’t wait to live in it next summer!

On the road, at work, post-run, whatever - this dress is my go-to. The fit is fun and flattering enough that I feel “put together” and the fabric is just right for breathability and movement.

Not a good fit

I was swimming in the top half of the size small. I'm 5'1"", 125lbs, 34B, athetic build for reference. The bottom of the dress fit better but was longer than I liked. It was such an odd fit. I def had high hopes for this one. I didnt think I'd be returning it. The pockets were nice though.

Sizing Issues

I feel like Patagonia products in general run very small for their size. With that in mind, I just ordered some t-shirts during your most recent sale and ordered up (I'm usually a med and ordered larges) and am absolutely swimming in them! Sadly, one was a gift for a friend that was perfect. I wish you would standardize your sizes.

Versatile Dress

I love that this dress can be dressed up or down depending on the mood. I was worried the XS might be too small but it fits more like a small in my opinion.

In the past 4 days, I wore this dress for a walk on the beach, traveling in the car for 5 hours, into the climbing gym with my toddler (stretchy shorts underneath to belay), and today to work...

Cute, sporty dress - some limitations due to fabric and back style

Cute dress with more of a fitted look than i expected through the waist and thigh.

Flattering Versatile Beautiful

I have this romper in the red color and in black and LOVE them.

Awful sizing

I wear a standard size medium in most all outdoor clothing brands including Patagonia. I ordered a bikini and this dress at the same time. The bikini fits beautifully. The dress, not at all.

Great fit, but doesn't wick well

I bought this dress as a casual dress for weekends and travel. For the most part, the dress is great and exactly what I was looking for. It fits me well, despite other reviews saying that the top was too big, and the material doesn't wrinkle at all, making it perfect for packing in a suitcase. I also like having the zippered side pocket. My ... Read Moreonly complaint would be the back criss-cross panels. Given that this dress is by Patagonia, I was expecting the fabric to perform well and wick sweat away from me but instead sweat pooled in this area, especially with two layers of fabric that was less breathable and less absorbent than expected.

Otherwise, I think the dress is flattering on me and am happy with my purchase.
