Most perfect dress EVER
Okay, Im 115lbs for reference, a 30B-C and I've had 3 kids (so my breasts sag and my tummy will never be the same) but this dress makes me feel young again! It literally fits perfectly, supports the not so perky friends up top and allows for a not so perfect abdomen, as well. Its almost a princess cut so the hips are loose but the upper waist ... Read Moreis slightly tapered rather than flared out like a princess cut, giving me a nicer figure than what I really have. It hits me at the knee, is super lightweight and not tight in the straps like so many other dresses (which always end up giving me knots in my shoulders). If I couldve bought this dress in every color I would have done so! Alas, the red was sold out so I have the blue but really, I want this dress for every day of the week and I sincerely hope Patagonia makes more!
Easy, Comfortable, Cute!
This dress is fantastic. I'm a 34DD, and this is the first dress I've found where I feel 100% comfortable and supported without having to wear a bra underneath. Even better, the high neckline is modest yet still flattering. I can't get over how wonderful it is to just throw on a dress without having to worry about the right bra with ... Read Morethe right straps and whether or not it's too revealing. The material is cool and comfortable as well. I love it so much I just bought two more. Two cautions - I waver between Small and Medium in Patagonia sizes. I first bought this in Medium, and while the fit was mostly good, the back sagged down a bit. I exchanged it for a Small and the fit is better in the back, but there is a little less forgiveness around the midsection so I have to watch my ice cream consumption. Second, while I love the Kale Green color, it definitely shows moisture spots where I am sweating on a hot day. Wear a pattern if you are going to be in the heat.
Sturdy, Stylish, A Steal!
Someone else said "buy it while you can" and they are right. Every 3-4 years, I buy a dress from Patagonia that ends up lasting me another 4+ years, and this dress is it for 2020 summer! The sturdy, slightly swishy fabric feels great against the skin. I bought the black color and just snagged the blue, both in M (I have bought M in other ... Read MorePatagonia dresses in the past). I am 5"5, slim hips, small chest, but broad shoulders kind of gal. The dress feels like wearing a mid-support sports bra, but as a chic dress! It feels a little snug to pull on and off, but once it's on you forget about. Style is perfect for pairing under a jean jacket or even a blazer for the WFH office, I've done a yoga flow in this dress and it moved well. Sleek, flattering and perfect for East and West coast summer days!
I love this dress. Super comfortable and very flattering. I have received several compliments. The length is great - not too short or too long. I purchased the black version which is more of a charcoal/soft black. I am considering getting one of the other colors given how much I love this.
I bought this dress pacifically looking for something I could wear in the Florida heat without having to wear a bra! This dress is perfect the fit is flattering, the material is comfortable and the support in the built-in bra is exactly what I needed. I am going to buy theres another colors!
Perfect Everyday Dress
I am always on the lookout for a dress that I can wear comfortably in the city but also take camping - this one exceeded my expectations! The shelf bra is supportive with removable liners which is important to me, you can't even tell you're not wearing a bra! I wear a 32D so I'm pretty selective when it comes to outfits I can actuall... Read Morey pull off without a bra :) It is slim through the waist and slightly tapers at the hip for a really flattering fit. For reference, I am 5'5", 128lbs, muscular build and purchased a small.
Flimsy yet weighs a lot bathing suit material
Material is flimsy and unflattering bathing suit fabric. Oddly the dresss weight is a bit heavy if thinking of traveling. As in most patagonia womens items with built in bras ...it is poor support. Makes women with boobs look like blobs . No pockets - really???? Only positive is higher chest coverage and decent length.

Perfect Summer Dress
I was looking for a casual dress and I got so much more. This is THE perfect summer dress. I live in SoCal where summers get in the 100s. This dress is so light and breezy. The neckline is modest but the back makes it a little sexy, and the built in bra ensures no bras traps get in the way. Im 57 and the medium hits right at my knee. Please make mo...

The perfect summer dress
I can almost never wear dresses with a built-in bra, but this is the exception. Woooo! This dress runs true to size. It's a little snug across the tummy, but the pattern offsets this if your stomach is less than flat. Since it's high quality and stylish, but not trendy, I can see myself owning this dress for a long, long, long time. Dress...
