I am 5'6" and 125lb and I got the small. It is a tiny bit loose bc I have no hips but the belt takes care of that. It is very comfortable and can be worn with heals or even my toms. I love it!

versatile dress
December 15, 2010

This little black dress packs up small, fits well, washes easily, and can be dressed up or down to suit the occasion. Great for travel. Very comfortable in hot weather as it breathes well, dries quickly and the wool fabric doesn't show perspiration. Cold water machine wash and hang to dry to keep it looking it's best. The loops for the belt at the waist are a little finicky, but the belt finishes the look of the dress if you're not accessorizing with a scarf or jacket/top.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

This dress is the bomb!
February 22, 2011

I took this dress on a trip to Florida and ended up wearing it for 3 days b/c it was so comfortable and so versatile. It was comfortable for travel, casual and cool at the theme parks and easy to dress up for dining out. I paired it with tights and a sweater for travel. I wore it alone to the theme parks and it dried quickly after the water rides; my family was completely jealous. I dressed it up with accessories and wore it into the nice restaurants in our resort. I packed other clothes, but didn't bother because this dress was PERFECT. I want an entire wardrobe of Icebreaker products!

I loved it, but not for me
August 06, 2013

As an aspiring minimalist traveler, I'm always looking for the perfect clothing. This dress came very close. I'm 5'8", 128 lbs, and the small fit quite well on the bottom and a bit snugly on the top. With expected shrinkage it would have been too tight on top. The medium was just too big all around. This was especially a problem because the neckline is quite low, and any bagginess would result in too much information being revealed when I bend over. As a fit 60+ year old, the small could have worked, except it was too short, hitting me about 5" above my knobby knees, too low-cut to wear without something under it, defeating my minimalist ambitions, and too short in the sleeves. It felt very comfortable, and I almost kept it, but am waiting to see if a more suitable style emerges.

Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Ease of use, Cons: Bad design

I hesitated to order this dress for couple of weeks because of somewhat negative reviews I found on line. But I am so happy I finally made the call to try it. I am 5'7" and 125lb with broad climber shoulder, 34A chest and 35" hips. Size small fits me extremely well and give my boyish body some curves. The picture from Icebreaker is pretty much right on except it looked slightly longer than showing on the model -- about 2 inches above knee for me and totally appropriate for office wear. The top opening is a bit lower than what I used to but my husband said it's just low enough to be sexy. And I can always wear a camis under if I don't want to show any cleavage. I find the trick to wear the long belt is to leave it wrapped 3 rounds when putting the dress on and then do some fine adjustment and tie up. An extreme versatile classic looking dress. After receiving the black one, I immediately ordered the "blizzard" color and it's a nice neutron grey.

Can't go wrong with wool for elegance
January 01, 2012

I've only worn this dress once, for Christmas, but I'm very pleased with it. It has a good length: short but not too much so. Looked good with tights. I was afraid of looking frumpy in it because I've thickened about the middle lately, but actually it was slimming, and I got complements on how I looked. It was true to size, nice neckline, easy to dress up or down. I felt like wearing a slip would have been nice (I don't have one the right length), since I wore wool against tights, but it wasn't too bad, probably because it was short enough. I did iron out the creases the first time, but after a quick and easy swish in the sink, it dried beautifully.

nice for summer
June 22, 2012

I purchased this dress (even though its dark) to wear in the summer. The fit is nice. Its a bit more form fitting then I am use to. I am 5"8 135lbs and I bought a medium. The fabric is soft not scratchy and not to thin. My boyfriend gave it a thumbs up and he never likes to comment on my apparel. ;)

Great Dress!
September 01, 2013

I have ordered IceBreaker gear before, and similar to my previous purchases, this article of clothing does not disappoint. The material is comfortable and soft, and most importantly is durable and packable. I am 5'4'' and 145 lbs, so I purchased the L in eggplant. The color is great but the fit was slightly too big. I've returned the L in exchange for a M, because this dress is worth the investment.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever

Love this dress
July 11, 2011

I think this dress is my new favorite article of clothing. Lightweight merino wool is so versatile and travels well. I've worn it on very hot days and I've been fine. I do think that this dress runs small. I am a medium in almost every brand, sometimes a small; I usually wear an 8 and sometimes a 6. I ordered the medium and it was a little short and snug; the large is much better for me. I have a bit more width than I need, but the fabric is drapey so it's fine.

Pros: versatile
