Ws Porch Song Dress

True To Size
November 24, 2022


I previously had two dresses in this cut I loved and which unfortunately were stolen. Those prints (floral) were no longer available so I ordered two with striped patterns. The fabric is layered well at the bust, but the bottom of the dress is see-through! Underwear completely visible.

October 23, 2022

Slim at top

The top was too long (or my breasts were big enough to lift the dress) and it runs slim so it looked unflattering when it was pulled over my abdomen. If I pull it up, I can wear it ok but its not a great fit for me frame (5ft 4, A cup, 120 lbs, athletic build)

September 20, 2022

Comfy While Working

Love the comfort and casual but also "work" style in this coastal area. It's tricky after wash as wrinkles excessively so it quickly needs to be removed from wash and patted smooth to hang to dry.

September 16, 2022

Great dress

What a flattering, great dress! Pockets would make it a 5 1/2 star! I usually wear a small but had to return for a medium which was perfect.

September 11, 2022

great summer dress

Love the fit of dress even though it does run a bit small. Length is perfect and I like the wider straps. Ordering another color!

September 8, 2022

Flattering but no pockets

The fit is super flattering for curves, the sizing is accurate, and it's well made, but I have to knock off a star for no pockets.

September 7, 2022

Lovely sundress

I'm fairly consistently a small and needed to return this one for a medium. The small was too tight in the chest and waist. Patagonia's customer service was excellent and the return was super easy. The medium is flattering and I love both the v in the back and that the front is not too low-cut for work. I would give this dress 5 stars if ... Read Moreit had pockets.

September 7, 2022

Improved design

I have several of the prior version of this dress, the width of the strap has improved (easier to keep the undergarment under), and the bodice covers better. The fabric is pretty clingy and form fitting, I think I will try to keep this out of the dryer to avoid shrinkage. Destined to be a summer staple just like my 15 year old versions.

September 6, 2022

Adorable & easy to wear!

Cute dress and great color. My only reservation is that for a petite person it is a little long. Would be even nicer if it were above the knees.

September 6, 2022

Comfortable fit!

I was between sizes but opted for M instead of L. Glad I did bc the cross over style can sag a little where they are stitched. Overall very cute fit, nice material and comfortable. Got a lot of compliments on the dress. Wish it had pockets!

September 6, 2022

Nice dress for very slim

This is a beautiful dress. Nice material and lovely blue color. It was too small for me in the middle and didn't have much stretch so I had to return it. Disappointing as Patagonia continues to have inconsistent sizing.

September 5, 2022

nice dress

Lovely easy dress but I have a small chest so the criss cross gaped in an unattractive way. I sadly had to return it. Too bad!

September 1, 2022

Very comfortable and flattering

The black porch dress will be my go to little-black-dress for years to come. Can be elegant or casual with different accessories. Good length and very soft from a he start. Thanks for durability of your products, company, and company ethics.

Great Summer Dress

I love this dress! Its been perfect for hot summer days. I like that the straps are wide and provide more coverage. The only thing that could improve it would be pockets.

August 10, 2022

Comfortable and flattering

I bought this dress in one color while on vacation...it's incredible flattering and versatile. I love how I can wear it in very casual settings or going out to dinner, depending on the shoes and jewelry I pair with it. It has become such a favorite that I ordered the blue one when I got home from vacation.

July 29, 2022

Soooo small....

This soft, nicely cut and attractive dress seems suitable for casual wear and beyond. It appears well made. It runs terribly small. I'm 5'4'', 127 pounds and wear a 36C bra. (Did I mention I'm 69?).

Perfect Fun Dress

Comfortable and stylish dress with an athletic feel. Received this as a gift and love it. Plan on taking it on trips and can easily dress up with a scarf or sweater.

Perfect summer dress

Please do not stop making this dress I will buy it every year, I wrought multiples and I will again next year, especially please please keep the length many summer dresses are too short for us taller gals, this was not too short the length was perfect, can be casual and with a change of sandals and jewelry less casual.

Fit/style issues, had to return

I was really looking forward to this dress. I purchased both medium and small. The small fit great in the chest but was too clingy throughout the waist. The medium fit better around the waist, but was too big and had too much fabric in the chest. I returned both because neither fit well enough to keep. In addition, I didn't like the double lay... Read Moreer wrap style of the top. The fabric on the bottom layer was fussy to get smooth enough so wrinkles didn't show through the top layer. The fabric itself was also a bit see through. I bought the white and you could see what color my underwear was under the dress. Probably not a problem with the darker colors, but it was an issue with the white.

We're truly sorry to hear about this sizing issue for you. If you have any questions regarding your refund, please feel free to [reach out to us](https://help.patagonia.com/s/). We also passed your thoughts along to our Design Team. Thank you so much for your feedback.

Super flattering

I love this dress and I can tell it will be a summer staple. I am 5'7", 140ish pear shaped. I can do M or S and based on reviews I purchased a S and it fits like a glove.

April 18, 2022

Size up for Orange

I purchased the orange dress. I have other size medium dresses from Patagonia. I'm 50 years old 5'6" 140 lbs. This dress is almost 100 percent cotton. I had a hard time getting it on, it looked tight, and it was difficult to take off. There is not much stretch in the fabric. I am returning it. I highly suggest sizing up at least one ...

Response from Patagonia
April 19, 2022

Hey Amy, we appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review. You're correct that this dress is mostly cotton, it comes in at 96% organic cotton and 4% spandex textured slub-knit jersey. If you liked the dress and would like to size up instead of return, you can begin the exchange process [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html). Otherwise a great alternative is our Women's Kamala T-Shirt Dress which comes in at 55% organic cotton, 41% TENCEL lyocell and 4% spandex jersey knit.

Cute style - needs side had pockets

Cute dress, I felt is ran slightly small. I sized up to a medium from my usual sz Small. I felt the bust was a bit tight. I am 5'6", 135# and a 34D. Wish it had pockets.

November 14, 2021

Flows with movement

I love this dress. It fits my waist and length perfectly. Flows easily and comfortably with movement.

July 14, 2021

LOVE the print!!

This dress exceeded my expectations! It fits well! Not too tight, just right! I am 53 and weigh 115 lbs. I ordered a size Small. Its so colorful and cool for these hot summer days! I love it!

July 3, 2021

Very flattering

I thought I bought this for play but I ended up loving it and also wore it to work with a jacket that matched. It is very well made and figure-flattering. I love it.

July 2, 2021

Very comfortable

Not only is this dress comfortable, but it is versatile and travels well. I packed it in a suitcase and it was wrinkle free upon arrival.

June 21, 2021

Almost perfect

This dress is so comfortable. Im not skinny and it hugs in all the right places, none of the wrong places. The fabric is heavy enough to feel snug but not so heavy it is stiff. It is quite deeply cut in the chest, so a cute bra is a must if youre wearing one. You may not feel you have to. The only thing that could improve this would be pockets (an... Read Mored with this drape-y skirt they could probably do that without ruining the line.) The only other thing Id change is having this in more, and bolder colors. I would buy them all.

Super cute

Love this dress. The fit is true to size.

June 18, 2021

Great Little Black Dress

Fits perfectly. I can wear it in the office or hiking or at a party. I'm 5'7" and 140 pounds. This dress creates a nice curve and looks classy all day long.

I love this dress. It is very comfortable and flattering.

May 17, 2021

Very flattering and comfortable

Typical Patagucci - beautifully made - great feel, great fit. I'm usually a M/L with Patagonia products. This one hits right above the knee and isn't too low on cleavage - bra friendly.

May 6, 2021

Great for travel

I saw this dress on someone in a store and ordered it the next day for overnight delivery because I was leaving for Hawaii 2days later.

Love this dress!!!

This dress is the best! I love how flattering it is and *bonus*: its great for breastfeeding my little one! Will be ordering more!

May 4, 2021


The design and fit just didnt look right on my pear shape. I ordered up a size thinking it might fit my shape better but it was too big. Had to return.

April 29, 2021


Fit perfectly, super adorable for casual wear or a lowkey night out. Very comfortable and flattering

Runs large

Using the size chart, I ordered an XL. It was much too big. I didn't really like the fit of the dress, so it was returned rather than exchanged for a smaller size.

Quality Apparel

The biggest appeal to me is the quality and simple design of this dress. Perfect for casual summer days or nights. Very flattering profile for any body type. Only complaint is it runs small, tight below the breast area. I ordered a medium and wished I got the large. For reference Im 54, 137 pounds.

Cute & comfy summer dress

Very comfortable and cute dress that is flattering! Will definitely be a wardrobe staple this summer. Sizing: I'm 5'3, 120lbs, 34 bust, and XS fits perfectly.

March 17, 2021

Great casual dress

I love wearing dresses and this fits the bill for easy, put together casual look.

March 16, 2021

Love the fit

Love the material of this dress, breathable, has a nice gentle stretch and is comfortable. Super cute print. Then ruching on sides and front is very subtle but enough to add a really nice shape/form fitting. Will definitely be wearing this piece often. Love it!

March 16, 2021

Comfy and wow

I only see my family members these days, but my husband and kids both said wow! (In a good way) when I put this dress on. It is so comfy and I love the lack of a built-in bra squeezing me. V-neck, but plenty of coverage to be active. The cut might show off a tummy a bit, so if you are worried about that, size up.

I live on the Valley Isle, and this is a perfect piece for Island lifestyle - no-fuzz & pretty! Mahalo!

Cute, Flattering Dress

Bought three of these dresses and one of the three fits perfectly. Two of them are a bit on the small side (I think one reviewer said it fit like an extra small). Fortunately, its just slightly tight around the rib cage (I am small chested and 125 pounds) but fits perfectly everywhere else (LOVE A-lines). I love the patterns and the flowy swing of ...

LOVE it.

I almost bought this dress a year ago. So glad I bought it now. I've got an athletic mombod of 2 kids. My post baby tummy isn't an eyesore in this dress and my arms look good. My husband thinks the dress is very flattering and loved it too.

February 28, 2021

Flattering fit

First dress I have purchased from Patagonia. Great quality and fit. I cant wear the clingy knit dresses with my lovely pear shaped- 52, 130# body. This dress has just the right amount of cotton and stretch that makes for a flattering fit.

Lovely Dress

While the dress is a bit large, it is still very comfortable. It is also easy to clean and hang dry.

Beautiful print, comfortable and form flattering.

Gorgeous, snug summer dress

This dress is form fitting in all the right places and ways. Very figure-complimentary, but still appropriate for church or work-meeting...and comfortable enough for summer sight-seeing. An all-around win of a piece.

Runs small

I am 36B & 1/2, 28" waist and 38.5" hips, 138#. This dress fit perfectly and comfortable for the warm autumn Gulf Coast weather in Houston.

Charming Dress, Wrong size recommended

I love this dress but could barely get it on. I'm 5'6, 108 lbs and normally would have chosen a small which probably would have fit but a very nice person on the phone at Patagonia mistakenly suggested xs. As for the style, it seems to be kind of full skirted, kind of like an A-line which I don't care for. Material is super pretty.

September 16, 2020

Very Comfortable

The dress is just a great addition to my active lifestyle. It goes with all my activities from 6am to 10pm. Now could you make some sleepwear as comfortable as the dress?

Perfect comfort and ease

Casual easy wear ... I usually wear between XS and S . S fit exactly ... I bought 2 ... comfortable and easy for work to boat to beach ... stretch fit and length

Easy breezy

I love this summer dress as I can dress up or down. Its made well and fits perfectly which is rare these days. And the fabric is nice too. Breathable yet snug.

September 13, 2020

Nice dress, bought two, the one issue is fixable

Fits well and is cute. It gaps at the neckline somewhat, which I remedy with wardrobe tape. This minor problem wasnt a deal killer.

September 10, 2020

Beautiful but runs very small

I bought this in the apricot color, size S. All of my clothes are size S, but this one fit like an XS. For the record Im 56, 34C, 27 waist and weigh 125. I wanted to exchange for a M but it was sold out.

Cute & Sassy! Great Color!

What a great dress style for real women! Super cute and sassy, but not too low in front! AND...made with Organic Cotton! It feels so good on and is a great addition to my wardrobe of sustainable clothing options.

Great dress (with one small caveat)

This is a really cute, fairly well fitting dress. It fits somewhat loosely on the shoulders, but I use wardrobe tape to keep them in place and to keep the neckline from gaping open, which I need to do on other garments. I bought two of these.

September 4, 2020


This dress fits perfectly and is really pretty. It's comfortable and easy to wear and gets plenty of compliments. Will probably get another one, it's that good.

September 2, 2020

Looks fantastic

The Porch Song Dress is perfectly flattering, and easy to care for. I hope that Patagonia makes it again next year, hopefully in more solid colors. Its a simple, classic dress that looks good with sneakers or with heels.

September 2, 2020

Lovely & Simple

I love the way that this dress fits. It's a bit big on me in the shoulders and chest (which is generally the case for me and was not unexpected), but it holds its shape well enough that this is not really a problem. Conservative enough to be professional while still being fashionable (for my standards anyway!)

I am 5'8", generally between a size 2 and 4, and size small fits perfectly. Plus, I am long-waisted and it's virtually impossible to find dresses that fit well and look good, and this one does!

I'm a huge fan of Patagonia dresses and skirts (I have at least 10 in my closet right now, not to mention the ones I've worn out in the past), and this ranks among my favorites.

Hot Weather Dress

After a trip, I decided I really needed to add several hot weather black dresses to my wardrobe. I really like this one, the fabric is perfect for hot weather and it has a bit of give which not all cotton dresses do. The fabric is also thicker so it hides bulges. I am 5'4" 123 lb but I have broad shoulders, 34D, small hips and large legs.... Read More The dress is a little revealing when worn like on the model (although it can be made modest with a scarf) but I found that it looks good when worn backwards as well and is more modest that way! So I will wear it with the fold opening on date nights and vacations and backwards other times. When I first put it on, I was slightly concerned because it is a little bit tight and I bought it for trip comfort but you can easily stretch the waist out some and make it more comfortable for those long trips where you have become bloated from traveling.

Great dress

While I haven't had the chance to wear this dress for it's intended purpose, an upcoming trip to Mexico, I wore it a bit this summer. It falls great on my body (5'4" and 140 lbs) though it's a bit tight in the chest area, and I am fairly flat-chested, hence, the four-star review.

Weird fit

I was hoping this dress would fit me like it looked on the model, haha! However the top of the dress seemed like it was a different size than the bottom.

Cute dress

I'm not usually a dress wearer since I'm tall and "normal" dresses aren't proportioned right for me. This was a total impulse buy as the design really caught my eye.

Read Moree top works ok, though it seemed to get a little floppier as the day went on -- I may need to do a stitch or two to tack it closed a bit. The design is lovely and I like the heavier material, though I've only worn it once and can't say how it will handle lots of washings. It'll be cute in the fall with leggings and boots, as well as is now in the summer with sandals. I wish P would design more clothing for those of us who are height outliers -- more petite and tall options would be very nice. Or if they already do, I never see any.

Love just love the way this dress fits and it’s comfy and so forgiving! Comfortable and dressy or casual whichever you prefer!

This dress has a nice fit and the pattern looks great, subtle but interesting. Its a slightly stiffer fabric than I expected so I worry it will wrinkle more when I travel then other similar dresses I have, but overall am very happy with it. I'm 5'4", 130lb and the small fits perfectly

Sun dresses

the colors/patterns weren’t as pretty as I had hoped….also, I typically wear a S/M and these medium dresses were a bit snug. I love Patagonia products but didn’t love these dresses.

Perfect summer dress

So comfortable and also looks nice enough to go from the porch to a dinner or outdoor concert! Fits an average sized figure well. I get complimented every time I wear it.

Not Quite Right. . .

I've just started buying a few things from Patagonia. I like their philosophy. Their clothes not so much. The fabrics seem to be good quality and wash well. Unfortunately the fit of their clothing seems a bit odd. I'm 5' 8" and weigh 138 lbs., athletic build, and small chested. I purchased a size small. Most brands I can wear of... Read Moref the rack and rarely need anything but minor alterations usually at the waist. This dress seems to need the shoulder seams taken up a good inch and a half maybe more. The top will likely still be too wide and not lay properly on me. It may suit larger breasted women better, though the low cut may expose too much to be comfortable.

Love Love Love this dress!

It's comfortable and washes up great. The best part is I don't have to wear a bra with the black color and you can't tell I am not. I had an older model and this cut is a big improvement. I have wide muscular shoulders and the fit accommodates them without buying up a size. Loved it so much I bought another. One for casual dress up a... Read Morend one for wearing around the house and while out and about doing errands. I even wear it for hot weather hikes.

Great dress

Love this dress! I did get the pink one and it didn’t go well with my skin tone so I sent it back and got the light blue. I am 130 lbs and 5’5’ and the small fits perfect.

A dress for every occasion

Love this dress. Just returned from a trip where a wore at dinners and during an easy hike. Washes beautifully and receivd many compliments about the design!

Where it everywhere and all the time

I have bought a second Porch Song Dress after I go my first one. I love how it fits, the cut and how it survives traveling, gardening, shopping, working and going to parties and looks great all the while. Put it on and your "good to go".

Great dress

Great fitting and comfortable dress for casual or slightly more dressy

A little disappointed

Cute dress, but the front hangs a little awkwardly and curtain-like, the v-neck is a bit low and the inner seam at the empress waist level was scratchy in the black dress. Bought in 2 colors.

Great little dress

Love this dress. I got it in the blue which is a lovely cornflower shade. I’m 5’1”/100# & the fit is perfect. It can dress up or dress down easily.

Great dress

Appreciate this organic cotton dress. It has been excellent for travel - easy, washable, looks attractive and is tough to boot. Thank you for this.

August 12, 2019

Beautiful and comfortable.

I get compliments every time I wear this dress! It can be dressed up or down, is comfortable in summer weather all day long!

Porch Dress is Perfect!

Perfect size. I've had this fabric before in Patagonia dresses and it keeps its shape so well after MANY washings (including in sinks while camping in France!). It fits well and looks nice for just about any occasion. And it's a bargain. LOVE this dress (and so many others!).

Cool, comfy and chic summer dress

Wore it on the beach at a yoga retreat. Great color and design. So comfortable for those hot summer days and nights. Sizing accurate.

So, so

Nice neckline, very flattering. Wanted for multi-purpose to - casual and business casual however the material is more faded cotton, older appearing personally not appropriate for business casual. Plus I’m short, 5’2.5” and hourglass shaped, made for more straight sporty figure. Too tight in the bust for small and got longer when moved up to a mediu... Read Morem so hit too far below the knee for my liking. Would have preferred a bit lighter material for hotter weather also

Stylish and comfortable

A must have summer dress. Unique style, feminine and comfortable. Worth every penny.

Nice dress but will likely return

The XS fits my 33.5A 26 34.5 5'3" 107# frame perfectly, including the length. Love the plunging/flattering neckline, bra friendly straps and bodice (for going without a bra), interesting design and patterns. The main reason I will likely return is because of the wrap front the right chest stitching and fabric intersection is so thick it s... Read Moreticks out, creating a ridge which is noticeable, but only on the right side. Maybe I got a defective sewing job? Smoother/more even area would look better.

Soft Cool Flattering

I bought the blue pattern and really love it - beautiful without screaming color. This dress is a good length for me - not too short or long. I’m a bit over 5’3” 130 and got a medium which shapes on top and falls nicely from the empire waist. The shoulders sit a bit wide on me. Need regular bra for sure.

Porch Dress

I love this dress so much I got it in both colors! It is so comfortable. You can dress it up or down. The fabric is so soft. I got a ton of compliments.

W's Porch Song Dress

I have been wearing Patagonia dresses for the last decade. I love that the cut is always appropriate for this fifty year old mom of teenagers! The only down side that I've noticed the last several years is that the cotton fabric seems to be much more stiff and restrictive. All of my older dresses were made with soft, buttery cotton that felt g... Read Moreood to the touch and allowed for more movement. I would love to see Patagonia go back to their old fabric, but keep the cut and cute prints.

nice slim fit

this dress fits well on my climber body. It fits true to Patagonia sizes. I have an extra small and I am not tiny. 5'7" 120 Love the dark print. It is great casual not too revealing shape.

February 21, 2019


I am 5'2" and 110 pounds. This dress is pretty, soft, and love the vneck. I wish I could keep this dress, but my tummy shows a little too much and I never would be comfy in this dress for that reason. If you have a flatter tummy this dress is perfect, but it doesnt flare enough for me in that area to keep it.
