Formfitting: Conforms to the body's contours.
Slim Fit: Closer-fitting. Slim-fitting technical garments may be worn over baselayers and light midlayers.
Regular Fit: Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting technical garments may be worn over heavier midlayers.

Classic Boy Fit: Boxy, athletic, with a traditional crew neck.
Anika Fit: Formfitting and longer in the torso, with a wider, deeper neck (not quite scoop).close

different morning glory dress, but just as great!
April 29, 2011
I was hesitant about trying this dress, as I loved the old morning glory dress style, with the tie at the back instead of the neck. This new style turned out to be just as much of a winner. It is a bit shorter than the previous style, which actually is better. The tie of this one is at the neck, but very comfortable. The fit is true to size and the style is a classic halter. The material is stretchy and not too thin at all. It seems very well made. The blue is a beautiful and vibrant color. I think that it is supportive enough to wear without a bra, making it a great summer dress.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost
October 05, 2011
So, I'm in the awful position of being too large for a medium and too small for the large. I own the morning glory dress, the older style, and liked that one. This style is better to wear with a cardigan, but I picked the coral color and it is terrible. A hazard orange that I can't imagine would look good on anyone. I've reordered the dress in large and in black. I'm 5'8'' and 150 lbs.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: coral color
May 30, 2011
This is my favorite dress! I wear it out to dinner all the time... though I would imagine I could wear it to the beach, too! The fit is very flattering and the adjustable tie int he back makes a bra unnecessary (for me anyway!). I'm 5'6" and a little under 120#, 34B up top... it's perfect! Thinking of getting the sorter one now that's it's been redesigned.Pros: Great design, Build quality
Good quality and material!
May 31, 2010
Overall quality is better than expected as well as material which is soft to the touch!
functional & elegant
September 22, 2010
summer wear and works for chilly days too with a jacket or sweater. Fabric drapes nicely, feels good too.
Worth every penny
November 12, 2010
This dress is awesome. I read the reviews online before buying it and everything was true....the dress is comfortable, well-made and extremely versatile. I plan to bring this dress as my one "dress-up" outfit on our upcoming trip to Southeast Asia for 5 weeks. Buy this dress- it is worth every pennyPros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use
April 28, 2011
This dress is super versatile. You can wear it over a swim suit with flip flops or dress it up with heels--either way it will look gorgeous! The material is so soft, but it doesn't look like it will "pill," nor is it too light. I'm 5'4" 125 lbs. and the medium fits just perfectly, hitting right at mid-knee. The Storm color is even better in person--kind of blue-gray, really pretty. Even though there is no internal bra, the cut of the dress (high empire waist) provides a bit of support.Pros: Great design, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
I thought I would fit...
February 14, 2011
I actually ordered the wrong size thinking I would fit into it...not so. I like the style of this dress very much and the fabric is nice for travel. However, since it was just a bit too tight for me, I returned it.Pros: Great design, Build quality
Go to dress
August 02, 2013
This cute dress will pack easily in the traveler's backpack. Not to worry about any wrinkles. Just splash a little water on it and as you walk the wrinkles are history. So what dress can you wear as you hIke the Nepali Coast Trail, walk through water, and walk into the Tahiti Nui for a Mai Tai? Traveling girl...this is your dress!
October 26, 2009
What an incredibly soft and comfortable fabric..and very lightweight but with structure. I love this dress.
COMFORTABLE AS MY FAVORITE NIGHT GOWN!
August 17, 2010
THIS DRESS WAS THE MOST COMFORTABLE OF ALL THE STYLES I TRIED. THE SLEEK FABRIC DRAPES BEAUTIFULLY AND IS THICK ENOUGH TO PRESERVE MODESTY AND GIVE SOME SUPPORT, YET NOT TOO HEAVY. AVAILABLE IN COLORS THAT ARE VERY RICH AND CLASSY. AS A SIZE 14 WOMAN, I FOUND THE XL TO BE A FLATTERY FIT.
Excellent anytime dress
September 09, 2010
I first bought the dress in black, I loved it so much I recently bought two more dresses. The fusion sunset (note: it is actually orange-not the red hue as it appears online) and the Earthenwear. The fabric is so soft and comfy and very sexy too. A pashmina can really dress it up and it looks great as a beach dress too. Very versatile - certainly a must have! I am 5'10" and I normally wear a size 8 or 10 and the medium fits great. Lots of room in the seat area due to the A-frame style. Hope you enjoy your Patagonia morning glory dress as much as I do.
A great all around any occasion dress
March 18, 2011
This is a GREAT dress, the fabric is soft yet durable, the empire waist is super flattering and wrinkle resistant, I ordered one and immediately ordered a second in a different color, I can't wait for summer to wear them every day!! the dress easily transitions from the trail to dinner out with just a change of shoes! I was a bit worried about the halter bra less situation being a bustier person (I'm a D cup) but because of the tying adjustable band its no problem. I normally have a lot of trouble wearing dresses and skirts that flatter my figure but the quality fabric combined with the empire style make the morning glory a winner in my book. I highly recommend it! One caveat if you'd like it to be a little more forgiving to random bouts of gluttony or bloat order a size up I did and I'm very happy but again if you like tight clothing order your regular sizePros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
I Want More of These...
December 19, 2010
I originally ordered this in a M, and I still own that size, but I have to feel very sleek to wear it. This dress is pretty much skin tight, but if you have the figure, it rocks. I also bought a L, which I feel a bit more comfortable in on a day to day basis. I would not recommend getting a lighter color in this dress (or anything with the morning glory fabric), as "blemishes" really show if you order the size Patagonia recommends. I.e., I wouldn't go for their light blue color. (I stuck with the black and burnt orange/red colors). I would love to see designed fabric on these dresses. I have been waiting three seasons now, and only solids!!! I will happily purchase more when designs and/or more colors I like are avaliable. Neck line is sexy, but not obscene, and the back is super cute. The reason I gave it 4 stars is because there is the knot in the back, which shows through cardigans and hurts if you are leaning against something. I really like the morning glory halter which doesn't tie- that design would be awesome for this dress, too, and it would have 5 stars for sure!Pros: Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
love the fabric
April 20, 2010
So far I really like this dress. The fabric feels great on my skin and I think it will keep me comfortable in hot weather. Love the tie at the back so you can get a more customized fit.
Perfect dress for any occassion
July 18, 2009
I wear it to the lake, wear it to work, wear it out. Perfect! Fits great and SOOO soft! I'm about to purchase my 2nd one now!
I now have two!!!
April 15, 2010
Wonderful, beautiful dress!!! I bought one, tried it on and immediately ordered another in a different color!!
May 12, 2011
This is a very comfortable dress! The fit is very flattering too. I am 5'7 and about 140 and the medium fits me well. It was a little low cut at first but I was able to fix that by adjusting the halter tie. I think the legth is a little long, it comes only very slightly above my knees but it still looks very nice and it wouldn't be difficult at all to hem it 2 inches. The bali blue is beautiful!
August 27, 2010
I don't wear skirts EVER but for traveling, I always throw one in my bag "just in case." Well, this has become THE skirt - can you believe, I just bought a second one! It worked for a beach wedding, a night in a ski town (in the summer of course) and "fancy pizza" in the WA backwoods - nothing like it! A must have!
slimming, extremely comfortable dress!
August 03, 2010
This is my first purchase at Altrec. I am 5'4', 145 lbs., and the medium was a little snug, so the Large is my size. I love the fabric, which is silky and yet not revealing. It drapes gracefully, and swings. The blue color is delicious!
don't believe the hype. It's good but not great.
July 25, 2009
I was surprised at how warm the fabric is -- all the reviews say it's great for hot weather. It's 80 degrees and I am burning up in this thing -- good thing I'm not in New Orleans or AZ! The fit is flattering, but the knot in back is a problem with coverups as others have mentioned. I also have a problem with the h[alt-er ]-- though my bust and neck are small, the h[alt-er ]is just tight enough to make it feel like it's pushing my head forward. Also, the dress is great for small busted ladies in that you don't need a bra -- but the h[alt-er ]is really thick and compressive and makes your boobs look smaller than they actually are. I have no idea how a large-breasted woman could wear this without the h[alt-er ]digging into her neck. I'm much happier with the "Travel Everywhere" dress I got at Athleta -- the fabric is nicer and the dress is much more comfortable -- and it's easier to put a shirt or cardigan over. I wanted this to be my Everything dress but it's just not. It's okay though. :-/
November 16, 2009
Like most things Patagonia, the quality of this piece is very high--it fits well, washes well, wears well. It's not quite the knee-length they say, but then, it's hard to predict where dresses will fall on taller folks!
May 30, 2011
This is my favorite dress! I wear it out to dinner all the time... though I would imagine I could wear it to the beach, too! The fit is very flattering and the adjustable tie int he back makes a bra unnecessary (for me anyway!). I'm 5'6" and a little under 120#, 34B up top... it's perfect! Thinking of getting the sorter one now that's it's been redesigned.Pros: Ease of use
The "must have" summer dress
January 10, 2011
This is definitely the "must have" summer dress. I originally bought it black but got it in 2 other different colors. This dress is very comfortable and looks "classy". I am usually a small but got the dress in xs (I usually have to get xs in patagonia products) and it fits perfectly.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
Not for petites
July 09, 2009
I tried this dress on over and over hoping that it would fit, but it didn't. It was really just too big for my 5' height and my 32A bust. However, the fabirc was great, I LOVED the orange color, more of a "burnt sienna" -- if I could have made it work I would have.
Fits like a glove
August 14, 2010
I love this dress because it's both slimming and form-fitting. Something about the fit is just very flattering and sexy, without being too revealing. Keep in mind that the length is actually quite long (past the knees). Overall a worthwhile purchase!
July 28, 2009
I am normally a small in Patagonia, and I felt this dress was too fitted. The material is thin, so a bra is necessary, but there is no shelf bra, and a traditional bra cannot be worn with this dress. I have narrow shoulders, and this dress is not flattering for someone built small like me.
The perfect dress!
May 21, 2011
This is a flattering, comfortable, elegant and sexy! Just change shoes, and this dress will fit for all occasions! I love it so much, I am thinking of getting one more!!!
July 30, 2010
Dress fits really well - The Northern Light color is great too.
Great all around versatile dress
October 13, 2009
I purchased for a friend - she loves it. the fit is great. Very versatile.
April 29, 2010
I just got the Northern Light Morning Glory dress, to add to my collection of five or so of the same dresses in other colors. The color is great -- my new favorite. What can I say about this dress that hasn't already been said? I wish it didn't have that knot in back that looks goofy under sweaters, because then I could wear this dress all year round. It is incredibly flattering, though I can see how some might find it a bit low cut in the chest. Although there are some Patagonia dresses in which a medium is too small for me (Margot and Eva Luna), the Morning Glory fits me perfectly in medium -- probably because the back is open and my broad back and shoulders are the main issue with the others. I am 5'9", 145 lbs., muscular build with broad shoulders and not much of a waist. But even at 40 after 3 kids, I feel pretty in this dress!
Best Dress for Concerts, Weddings, Park Days!
August 31, 2011
I abso-fricki-lutely LOVE this dress!! I get sooo many compliments on it! Everytime I wear it, I tell people what kind of dress it is and where to find it: altrec.com of course!! I have it in 2 colors, the pink and blue. Pink's my fav but the blue is growing on me. So comfy and you never have to worry about it being too wrinkled! Great find!
Great dress - I have it in 3 colors now
July 24, 2009
Very comfortable and flattering. I get compliments every time I wear it. I was a little worried that it would be too long. It is longer than the knee length styles I usually wear. I'm 5' 5" and it hits me just below the mid calf. Nice for travel -I usually carry a light wrap to put on if I want to cover up a bit.
love the dress
June 23, 2010
I just received my morning glory dress. Love the fabric. I travel lots for work and pleasure, no iron needed!The support of "bra top" is a big plus! I would recommend this product
Fantastic dress for an outdoor wedding
July 15, 2009
I tried on a number of dresses for an outdoor family wedding and my boyfried and I agreed that this was the best one of all of them. It drapes well, not too clingy but flattering, especially with the tie option in the back. I have olive skin and I decided to go with the Afterglow, which shows off tan skin beautifully. The only downside to the dress is the size of the know in the back for the tie strap. If you are sitting on a hard chair back, it will get pretty uncomfortable in a hurry. I can't wait for the wedding to come so I can wear it all the time.
December 05, 2010
I love this dress. It is so comfortable and you can wear it for a nice dinner out or to go hiking. The sizes are right on. overall a great purchase
August 23, 2009
These dresses are super comfy, I can them wear to work but they're also great to throw on when I come home. It's hard for me to find dresses that fit right but these are perfect!
Absolutely Love This Dress
August 06, 2009
I bought in black this time, but only I had already had gotten an orange one. The comfort is amazing. The simplicity is outshined by the fact that you can wear this almost everywhere. A must have in every color!
Versitile and comfy!!!
December 28, 2009
I wore this dress to a wedding but it could be worn at Amy level of casual-dressiness!
February 26, 2010
This dress is great for travel. It can be dressy or casual. Perfect fit. Will purchase another color.
Best dress I've ever bought
October 25, 2010
This dress is fabulous! It looks great, feels great, is pretty true to size - a little big up top (and I'm a little big up top myself) but nothing that can't be fixed with a quick alteration. I loved it so much I bought another one in a different color. I have yet to be disappointed with Patagonia, and this dress is no exception. It can be dressed up or down, great for a variety of occasions.
July 29, 2009
I am a professional cyclist who is always toting 2 bikes and a pile of cases with me. I can last a week or more with 2 of these dresses, the morning glory jacket and pants. I own 4 of them now!!!
Short length is better
March 21, 2011
I love this dress - fits beautifully and flatters more than the longer length. The new length is perfect for me at 5'3", might be too short for taller ladies. The fabric is thinner than in past years so it may not be as durable, and is probably a bit less forgiving of figure flaws. I will definitely order another one.Pros: Great design
Such a cool comfy dress
November 10, 2010
This dress is great!! You can dress it up and wear it out at night or throw flip flops on and wear it to the park. It is very comfortable and flattering. It fits very nice on top and the bottom gives you room to move but still look good. I love it!!!!Pros: Ease of use
Just a really great dress
June 20, 2011
- travels well but wrinkles a bit in the luggage (so wear it on the plane!) - can adjust cleavage level by adjusting the tie at the neck - very versatile - can be dressed up or down - the fit is really near perfect - material is very comfortable, breathes well, and wears well - the length is great for tall gals (I'm 5'10")Pros: Great design, Ease of use
feminine, sporty and dressy
August 10, 2010
This is a very versatile dress. It can be slipped on after swimming or worn out on the town with accessories, a shawl, a shrug, etc. It is slimming, and stretchy yet not clingy. The Northern Light is a gorgeous color!
Awesome fit every time you put it on!
July 21, 2009
I reach for this dress every time I enter my closet. Great fit and drape. I bought the small in black and can wear it for any occasion. Looks good with one of those new style multi-colored scarves, a wrap for evening or a little jewelry. Plus after gentle washing the color holds true. big plus with black!
September 28, 2011
I was a little hesitant to buy a halter dress with my shape but was pleasantly surprised at the fit of this dress. We are headed to Arizona and can't wait to wear it. Great quality.Pros: Great design, Build quality
January 23, 2010
fabric is so soft and wrinkle proof. Stuff in a backpack to wear with flipflops or add a scarf and necklace to wear to a party
March 17, 2010
This is a great dress, very comfortable - both the fabric and the cut. I was slightly disappointed at first because I ordered the fusion sunset because it looked red in the picture but when I received it, the dress l was orange. However, I exchanged it for the the northern lights color which looks very nice.
August 10, 2009
My girlfriend loved the dress. She thinks it's super comfortable!
March 15, 2011
This dress is comfortable and fits well. It has a bit of a sporty look in the front, but the back is a little more formal. Can dress it up or down. Beautiful color.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use
I love this dress!
May 01, 2011
Now I just hope we get some warm weather so I can wear it. I bought the blue and I think the color would be flattering on many skin tones. The dress is sexy yet practical at the same time. With a built in bra you don't have to worry about dealing with that while wearing a halter. The fabric hits that right mix of being heavy enough, but not too heavy. I'm 5'6" 125 lbs and the dress in size small fit nicely, and came to my knees. I am thinner through the torso and then a little bigger in the hips, so the style skimmed my body nicely. If you are the same size as I am, but carry more of you weight up top, you might want the medium.Pros: Great design
This is the sexy version of this dress
July 18, 2011
I love this dress and my husband loves it even more! In my opinion this older design of the morning glory dress is far sexier even though it's longer in length. I also think you can tell that from the model in the pictures. Like the other reviewer said, it does wrinkle a little so I keep it hanging in the closet and it's fine.
A Dress for All Occasions
February 21, 2011
This dress is awesome! It fits great and is super comfortable. I am 5'1'' and while it is long on me (everything is) it looks super cute. It hits at mid calf, so on a taller person it is likely knee length, but I am completely fine with it hitting where it does. It is casual enough to wear to the lake or on a mild hike, and when paired with a cardigan it can be worn for something more formal (Sunday brunch last week - for example). I want to wear it every day, and if funds allowed I would own one in every color. True to size, and supportive enough to wear bra-less.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
July 21, 2009
I love this dress. It is very comfortable. You can wear it casual or dressy. I wear a size 4 and the size small fits perfect.
April 06, 2010
this dress is flattering and fun. it's lightweight and comfortable, yet nice enough for more formal occasions. i'm wearing it for a bridesmaid's dress!
Good quality and material!
May 31, 2010
The material was softer than expected. Feels good on a warm day. Overall quality is better than I thought it might have been from the picture.
black morning glory patagonia
April 07, 2010
This is the PERFECT little black dress, you can wear it to work, date night, and is even great for hikes. It's comfortable, classy, and very convenient.
May 04, 2010
I'm on my 4th one, comfortable, looks great, sporty and easy to wash. Wish they had more colors :-)
December 05, 2010
I love this dress, it is very flatering and versatile. You can wear it to the beach or for an evening out. My only gripe is that the fabric seems to wrinkle easily....
Flattering and travels well
December 09, 2010
Definitely one of my summer staples. I've got it in more than one color. Throw it on and you instantly feel dressed up. Roll it up and toss it in a bag. Doesn't wrinkle. I've worn it to weddings as well as to the park. Truly versatile. Love the halter and a-line shape. It's also the perfect calf-hitting length. For me, an overall flattering look. I highly recommend this dress.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Ease of use
go to travel dress.
May 16, 2011
I love my new dress. The fit is flattering - I am 5'6", 138 lbs and I got the medium. I can see wearing this during the day and then dressing it up with a fun wrap and accessories. I will travel internationally with this dress and hope to wash it in the sink and let dry out.Pros: Great design
Morning Glory Dress
August 03, 2009
I love this dress. I can wear it in the river, out to dinner, or for walking my dog. It looks great for any occassion and feels wonderful.
July 29, 2009
This dress has a very flattering fit and can be dressed up or dressed down. I love it! I've since ordered another in a different color.
Too long, but great dress!
July 23, 2009
The fit is beautiful, though the length is too long. I get compliments a lot when I wear this dress. I'm 5'5", 130 pounds, and a large C-cup. I bought the medium but could have gone for the small. I had the dress shortened to above my knee - adorable!
My favorite dress(es)!
April 03, 2010
Okay, I now have 4 of these dresses, all in different colors. I love them because they are sporty and go great with Chacos, but with the right earrings and sandals, they can be quite a bit dressier, too. I like the adjustable back tie-- it is sometimes tighter, sometimes looser, depending on how I'm feeling that day. The neck is wide and soft enough that it doesn't get annoying after a few hours like some halter dresses do. In addition, I don't need a bra since this dress is nice and supportive throughout. The best part, though, is the fabric. I LOVE going to music festivals and concerts in the summer. I can get this dress wet (water, beer, playing in the river, whatever) and it dries really quickly. I am 5'7" and about 135 pounds-- but broad-shouldered--and am very happy with a medium. My friends tell me that this dress is SEXY! A+!
Super Comfy, Great Fit
August 11, 2009
I bought this dress for my girlfriend and she LOVES it. She wore it to a rehearsal dinner, then a few days later wore it to an outdoor picnic. It's incredibly versatile and she says the stretchy fabric keeps her cool and comfortable.
March 26, 2010
I was most concerned about fit with this dress so I ordered a medium and a small and ended up sticking with the small. I'm 5'6", 138lbs and my chest is on the larger side. The small hugged my hips/stomach a bit better than the medium which looked slightly tent-like. The tie-back design is amazing for providing support and the halter doesn't dig into my neck like most halter styles. The dress hit just a bit below knee length which is perfect for me. I highly recommend this dress for someone who wants an easy, go-to outfit for casual and dressy events alike.
love this dress
July 01, 2009
the fabric is so luxurious, i love it. i'm 5'6" 145 lbs and the med is perfect! what a great dress.
October 23, 2010
Great fit and fabric! Can be dressed up or super casual. The Medium fit great 5'7" 135 lbs 34C. I will definitely consider another next summer as it is an easy travel dress and good priced.
Dress for every occasion!
November 20, 2010
I love this dress so much that I actually bought it in multiple colors and convinced several friends to buy one as well! I practically live in it during the spring and summer here in North Carolina! It's great for our hot, humid summer because it dries quickly and keeps you cool...not that ladies ever sweat. The dress has retained shape and elasticity after multiple washes but I'm always careful to air dry it. It also packs well for trips because it doesn't wrinkle!Pros: Great design
Versatile travel dress
December 07, 2010
Great fitting, flattering dress for body with narrow shoulders and broad hips. I'm 5'6", ~130 lbs -- the small worked for me. Excellent fabric quality and very comfortable. The halter style is perfect for summer beach days but also works well under a cotton sweater for spring and fall. Easy for travel.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
cute dress, but runs large
October 06, 2012
I bought this dress thinking that it would be a great summer evening dress. Typically wearing an XS, I thought this would fit, but I was swimming in it.Pros: Great design
A great summer dress.
December 17, 2010
I have this in size S in Northern Light. I am 5'7" and 120#, and it fits perfectly. It's made out of their fantastic, durable, stretchy material. Before I ordered, I was worried the neckline would be a little low for me, but it's just right. Very nice dress!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use
Great quality - not flattering for all
November 11, 2009
I'm pretty sure I'm keeping this dress. It looks great on ladies who are more flat-chested. I'm busty (34DD) and have narrow hips and small legs - the Medium fits well but it just doesn't look as cute on me as it does on a friend of mine with a very athletic build (pear-shaped) and a smaller chest. Anyway, I think I might keep it and wear it in the summer with a bikini top underneath for some added support.
Great Summer Dress
March 13, 2012
I rarely wear dresses because they are either too dressy, confining, hard to pack, not versatile enough for travel. This dress (I bought the black) is a great exception As others have noted, it can be dressed down with flip flops, funky jewelry and look great for shopping the outdoor markets or the beach. Add heels and some dressy jewelry and maybe a silky wrap of some kind and it would work for more formal occasions. The fabric is soft and stretchy, and as a knit should pack well. The fit is true to size for me--I am 5-5, about 130lbs, 34B and the S fits well. I have a high waist, and did need to tie the halter pretty tight and high to get the fit and "lift" for the girls just right. But that made the ties in the back longer, and they look really pretty and flattering like that. My only complaint is that many of the colors are sold out in size small, and I was really hoping to buy a second in a bright color!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: more colors available
Favorite dress in my closet!

I have this dress in every color. I love to wear it to work with a cardigan and to concerts with flip flops. It is a thick material, so it hides any imperfections/ lingerie lines. It's also quick-drying (think swimsuit, but not quite that techy) which is nice in case you spill your water bottle or want to dip your toes in the creek. Very flattering to the bust line!Pros: Great design, Lasts forever, Performance
Nice but not for me

I give this dress 4 stars even though I sent it back, because I think it has the potential to be very flattering, and it is well-made. As is usual with Patagonia, I'm sometimes in between sizes, which leads to neither a small nor a medium fitting perfectly. I'm 5'8", 135lb, 34b; lean but muscular build. In this dress, the small felt a little tight, and the medium felt like too much fabric in the bodice area. Both fit fine in the bust. The main issue though is that I have broader climbing shoulders, and the thicker straps stemming from the bust area accentuate the broadness of my shoulders in an unflattering manner. It's too bad, because this is a great dress that has wonderful versatility, and I had such high hopes I'd love it in every way, based upon so many other positive reviews.
Awesome sexy dress!

Fits great! Apparently great on a variety of figures. Very nice quality and comfortable too. What more could a girl want in a dress!

Love,Love this dress. I have had many heads turn wearing this.The fit is perfect for me as I have broad shoulders and no waist.The only thing I had to do was shorten the length.The fabric is very comfortable and keeps you cool in the humid weather.The colors are true to what is shown.
