Cute & comfy
I love this dress a lot. I got it in the dark blue from the outlet years ago in large and though it was a little on the big side it was great for work. It looks dressy enough while being super comfortable. Then I recently saw it on sale and bought the green color in medium and its my new favorite dress. It fits just right (59 145lbs) and kinda work... Read Mores for everything- work, brunch, hanging out, date night, etc. The material is soft and I think the cut is flattering.
Love this dress
This is my favorite dress purchase in recent years. The fabric is so soft. I love the extra shoulder coverage. And the length is perfect for me. It hangs just above my knees. I saw some reviews from people who said previous years models of this dress were shorter. Personally, I love the length. I ahve muscular thighs that don't always look gr... Read Moreeat in short dresses. This one is PERFECT. I may just get another in a different color. Sizing: I'm usually a S or XS in dresses. I bought one in each size, but the Small didn't look so great. So if you are between sizes like me, go for the smaller size.
Comfortable dress that goes from casual to business casual
Great fitting dress that can be dressed up or down. I am 5'8" and generous on top. I ordered the XL which fits well on top, and the design tapers slightly at the waist to avoid being too full on the bottom. I don't usually buy duplicate clothing but would like to add the coral to my summer wardrobe.
I wanted to like this dress, but it had two glaring problems. First, the color is too light for me, and washed me out. Second, the narrowest part of the waist on the dress is right under the bust, whereas my narrowest part is a few inches lower, just above my navel. The dress wasn't flattering as a result. No problem, said I. Let's just a... Read Moredjust the side seams. But no! There are no seams at all going straight up and down the sides of the dress, armpit to hem. I could not figure out how I could possibly adjust the waist into a more flattering position. If the color had been darker I might have lived with it, but with both problems together I could not justify keeping the dress.
comfortable & sexy!
Top half of the look is rather form-fitting, below the waist it is free & swingy! I am a 34C and the neck was a bit too deep--especially for wearing to work. I took care of this using a very small safety pin (inside) to bring the deep "V" up an inch or so... Lovely fabric feel. Length comes to top of my knee (I,m 5'7). I want it ...

This is very comfortable and I have worn it a lot since it arrived. I do agree with others that it is low cut; I add a baggy cardigan to it, though, and probably won’t be wearing it to church anytime soon. Haha However, I noticed the fabric has snagged recently. I would recommend this dress if you can get it on sale. I’m thinking about getting an... Read Moreother color but may see about exchanging the current dress I have for another one. I guess I need to be more careful when wearing it.
Too big in hips
I have three previous versions of this dress and I love them. I got the same size as before and it fit about how I expected up top, maybe a little tighter, but it was like someone added about 3 inches in the hip area. It was not flattering at all on me so I ended up returning the dress. I couldn’t order a size down because it would have been to tig... Read Moreht in the bust. I am not big 32B so I was surprised how tight it fit. I’m very sad this didn’t fit because as I mentioned I have three previous versions of the dress and love them.

Low cut, like cap sleeves
Too low cut for me, otherwise very nice material and liked cap sleeves as you can wear a bra. A bit too long for a 5'5" woman.

Cute but odd
Really cute style, gorgeous colors but a really odd fit. The fabric is clingy and the dress managed to be loose/baggy and really unflattering as it managed to cling to every lump and bump. Not quite sure how it did that! . Soooo disappointed. I was hoping this would be my new go to dress.
I ordered a small in navy (I’m 5’ 8”, 130 lbs). I was hoping for a form fitting look but it was more like a maternity dress because of the way the dress is cut with the seams running diagonally from back to front. It was disappointing and I had to return it.
We're sorry to hear you're disappointed with the cut. Please [let us know](https://www.patagonia.com/customer-service.html) if you have any questions regarding your return.
A very comfortable and versatile dress, even more so than the original.
Ive had one of the early bandha dresses for years, the hem falls above the ankle and it’s sleeveless and while it is super comfortable and I really enjoy wearing it I didn’t have as many occasions to do so. The knee length and cap sleeves of this version are great as is the matt fabric finish.
pros and cons
pros: i love this dress and have worn mine for eons, which is why i wanted another. they finally changed the length, so i was looking forward to not having to hem the skirt, and actually just get something i like and can wear as is. cons: the dress arrived defective, with a pucker/bump in a side seam, so i had to exchange it; also, the sizing has c... Read Morehanged so that i'm not the M i used to be, but rather, i'm stuck between M and L and will have to alter the dress still, assuming the replacement is stitched more smoothly than the return.

Beautiful, loose on the bottom, but fitted at the top. Just pass the knee. Perfect for biking to work. Professional enough to wear with a cardigan over top. Got compliments immediately on the light aqua color. 5'9" 135# and ordered a small. I wouldn't want any bigger. Seems about right. Could have maybe had a size down but I like the... Read More fit.
Love this dress. The first
Love this dress. The first one I purchased was 10 years ago. Unfortunately, the xs is, now too tight in the stomach, so I purchased one in a small last year and wore/wear all the time. The only complaint I have is that it runs long. I had the one I purchased last year shortened. I will likely have to later this one, too, but I am wearing it longer,... Read More less flattering and as it is supposed to fit, for now.
Very flattering dress
I get so many compliments on this dress, I bought it in two colors. Great fabric, very comfortable, perfect length on me. I'm 5'9". It's a bit low cut which gives it a moderate sexy appeal. It's my new favorite summer dress. Also, I love Patagonia's mission!
Love the Bahnda Dress
I bought this dress in Scheels, got so many compliments that I bought one for my friend and another for me! It is not form fitting yet still very flattering. It goes in your suitcase and then back on without a wrinkle. Easy to wash and I hang dry because I am tall and like the length. Thanks Patagonia for the perfect summer dress 👗!
The Best Travel Dress Ever!
I have had this dress in black for five years, and have worn it everywhere. Most recently wore it on a trip to Peru/Machu Picchu (June 2019), and wore it to several five-star restaurants. It is an awesome travel dress -- does not wrinkle, looks very classy with a sweater or wrap and heels, and is even appropriate for work. Washes easily on the deli... Read Morecate cycle, hang to dry.

I got this yesterday and love it. It fits great for me. I'm 5'4,between 123-130,muscular build and have the small size. It fits well through my chest,isn't so loose that you can see my bra and drapes well over my hips. The hem is right at my knee,which is a good length for me. The fabric is super-soft and doesn't seem to wrinkle... Read More,which will be awesome for traveling.
I'm slim and wear an A cup bra,so I bought the XS but it's too roomy and long. It's very disappointing because I bought a very similar dress 2 yrs ago which is perfect. In other Patagonia apparel I wear a small sometimes and XS others. I wish there were more consistency! The size charts are often wrong.
This dress is so comfortable and flattering and I love the color (purple). But it is WAY too long. I am 5' 6" and it passes my knees by an inch or so. I looked back at the website,where it says a 5' 9" model wears a small. This dress is not sized appropriately for women of average height. I am torn because I love it,but it falls... Read More awkwardly below the knee. I'm hoping a tailor can help,but if not I'll have to return it as the sizing is too awkward.
