Super cute dress
I ordered this dress as a casual summer dress. I went with the medium size first based on the reviews, and then I had to exchange it to a size small which is my usual size. I find the cut of the dress extremely flattering and comfortable. The cut at the neck and armpit (and back) hugs the upper body, and the lower part flowing gracefully. The mater... Read Moreial is soft and really nice. No bras needed! You can really dress it up, but also can be sporty and casual. I love this dress!
Tight at ribcage
I would recommend if my friend had a tiny ribcage. The medium was very tight in the ribcage and the large was huge. Really cute back and wished one of them would have worked.
Hey Kirsten, thank you for sharing your feedback with us on the Magnolia Spring Dress. We're sorry the fit didn't end up working out for you. If you ever need them, we're always happy to provide measurements when you're trying to decide on what size to purchase. It looks like this particular dress in the size M comes in at 15" across the bust seam, and the size L comes in at 16.5". Perhaps the [Women's Porch Song Dress](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-porch-song-dress/59130.html?dwvar_59130_color=HTMA&cgid=root) in a size S would work better for you since the same measurement comes in at 16.125".
Functional, durable, and flattering
I packed this dress for a multi-stop trip and it quickly earned its place as a favorite. Functional: I could run around after kids, bend over, haul gear without it gaping or pulling; also found the pads of the shelf bra were easy to re-align after handwashing. Durable: no pilling, sagging, etc, after some hard use. Flattering: I actually had someon... Read Moree call to me in public "I love your dress!" so that seems like a win! I'm 5'5 and 130lbs and the small fits well. This should probably be obvious from the design (and isn't a flaw, just an FYI): the high neck and built-in pads mean the top of the dress does get warm in humid or hot climates, but the flowy skirt keeps you cool.
Fits Well Looks Great
I think this dress is great! I know it's not for everyone, but I am 5'5 and weigh about 148 pounds. I have an athletic build so my abs are tone, but I do have a butt. This dress flattered my athletic body. The bra fit me perfect. My bust size is 38 C. I could hike with ease or just go walking. It's also doesn't wrinkle easily, s... Read Moreo it's great for travelers. I also love that you can dress it up or down based on your activities. My only regret that I didn't buy another. The Mediums sold out fast, so I only bought the black.
I wish it came in petite. Im 52 and it is knee length and I wish it was shorter.

super comfy, fits perfectly
I have a hard time finding dresses where the top is not too loose, but this is fitted just perfectly and the built-in bra is great. For reference, I am a 30D, 5'5" and 115 lbs. The fabric feels smooth, soft, and clingy. I bet it will dry quickly, so it will be a good vacation dress. My kids and husband said, "wow! it's beautiful... Read More!" I bought the red dress.
Nice cut and fit; strange built in bra
I want to love this dress. It's cut is lovely and the back is cute. Length is also good. However, there is something weird about the built in bra. No matter how I tried to position it and my girls, there was a strange bunching of the fabric that caused accordion-like wrinkles to show through the front of the dress. It is almost as though the b... Read Morera is one size bigger than the dress.
Hey Lisa, thank you for sharing your thoughts with us on the Women's Magnolia Spring Dress. We're sorry to hear you encountered some issues with the built in bra. It sounds like you could potentially benefit from a size down. To begin an exchange, please click [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Really comfortable - love the red
Love this dress. Id like to get it in more colors. The material is super comfortable. The only thing about it is that it is pretty fitted in the waist so I have to be mindful to not have a huge meal when I wear it otherwise it makes me look like a little pudgy. I am 5 foot nine and the dress is a lovely length for me, not short.
The dress is great. Used a size up then usually. Just wish fabric was a little thicker. Missing a little of quality to the fabric.
Thanks for your feedback on the fabric. This dress is one of our "slim" fit designs, which may explain sizing up. Please reach out to our [Customer Service](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) if you have any questions!
Gorgeous Dress but slimfit
Awesome dress! It is breathable and nice for the hot Texas summers. My only complaint is that it is not he slimmer side. I missed that part in the item description. I am postpartum and not the biggest fan of how my belly looks right now, so when I wear this dress I usually wear a gauze button-up shirt over it. If you have a slim midsection then you... Read More will love it.
Comfortable and stylish
The dress is super comfortable with soft, stretchy fabric. There is plenty of support in the top and the length fell at/just below my knee. I am currently almost 6 months pregnant and I'm sure I can wear this dress for a few more months as it will stretch with me as my body changes. The criss-cross styling of the back received several complime... Read Morents and as a non-dress wearing person normally, I was really comfortable in this for an entire summer's day.
Cut larger on top than on bottom
This is a fantastic dress. It's crazy comfortable and super flattering. I have two of the older Magnolia Spring dresses with the twist back from a few years ago and I wear them all summer long. This version is even more flattering with the high neck halter front. Only issue for me is this version seems to be cut for someone who is a little la... Read Morerger on top. I'm 5'3" 128lb, C cup, 35-29-35, and the M is perfect around the hips but the bra is a little looser than I would prefer, and I really hate tight bras (I only wear bralettes). I almost wonder if there is a manufacturing defect in the dress I got given how loose the bra is, and that nobody else mentioned this. Hence 4 stars instead of 5. Nonetheless I'm keeping it because it's great and a nonbinding bra isn't the end of the world. I would buy more if any of the other colors this year besides the red suited me; alas I look good in saturated jewel tones and awful in muted greens/browns so will wait around and see if any better colors for me show up next year.
I wanted a dress with a built in bra for hanging out at the beach. This fits the bill. I would have liked to have an adjustment available for the straps, but otherwise it fits nicely with a stretch fabric. I had to go up a size from my usual Medium as the bust was too tight. On the slimmer side through the mid-section.
Exactly what I thought it would be.
This is one of those dresses that you put on and just feel great about yourself and life. It fits great, its made of super comfy material, and looks bomb. The only thing wrong with it was that when it shipped one of the breast cups was upside down. Easy fix. I could not be happier with this purchase.
I just tried on this dress and immediately thought, I need another. I have never bought multiples of the same dress, but for the first time Im tempted. Im skeptical of built in bras, but this one is incredibly comfortable, supportive, and no show headlights. The dress is so comfortable and flattering - I could wear it in the garden or out to dinner... Read More. The material looks like it would be great for traveling which is still just a pandemic fantasy, but this dress keeps the dream alive.
Perfect summer dress for play or work
This dress fits like a glove without feeling too snug. It gives shape and support in all the right places. I especially like the built-in bra that has good support, no-show fabric weight. The dress flares out from the waist, hides my wide hip and look pleasing. Floral print is absolutely striking, photo doesn't do justice. I wear this for play...

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...
