Best dress ever!!!
April 27, 2011
I'm not a girly-girl by any stretch of the imagination. I almost never wear dresses, but this one was too cute to pass up. It is so comfy and flattering. I'm curvy. 5'7" and hover around 135. The medium fit to perfection. It's not clingy, but skimmed over the curves without looking tacky. I am a 34D and the shelf bra gives enough support. It's not like I'll be jogging in it or anything, so it works. I just wear it with a pair of Toms shoes. It'll also be perfect with sandals. Throw on a sweater and you're even office appropriate. IMO this is a great purchase.Pros: Great design
Perfect Summer Dress
April 02, 2011
This dress is so comfortable and flattering. I have the Burnt Orange Congo Beat design and love how vibrant the colors are in the print. The material is soft and gives just the right amount of stretch. Great length- hits just above the knee (I'm 5'7) I'm planning on wearing it on a cruise to the Southern Carribean. It will be perfect for travelling: won't wrinkle and will keep me cool in the hot weather. I love it so much that I plan to get another color!Pros: Great design, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use
pranas dresses are awesome
June 23, 2011
I bought a prana dress on vacation when I forgot my suit case. I loved it and I have never been a fan of lounging in dresses because I don't usually find them comfortable.I have since purchased 4 more prana dresses the amaya and several Lola dresses. All fit well. Stains come out easy. I throw them in the washer and they come out looking new. I recommend this brand and dress for comfort, durability, and they are super cute!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
Simply, a great dress
August 04, 2012
I am a casual dresser and do not dress up too often--I recently bought this dress at the last minute for an outdoor wedding. The fit was great (I bought a small and I'm 5'5 130lbs) and received soooo many compliments. I enjoy feeling comfortable--this dress allows that but also just looks fantastic, too.

This is the best summer dress I have found this year ! So soft and comfortable . The M fits perfectly ...I am 5'5 and 132 lbs . I love that it is not to short as so many other dresses are and the color choices are amazing , I am buying another for sure !Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
August 13, 2011
This is a great dress. I love the fact that it has a built in shelf bra and it fits great. Very flattering on the body. It's a yes for packing on any trip!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
FINALLY, a dress that fits AND looks great
May 27, 2011
I'm 5'4" and usually a size 2 weighing about 117 lbs so the small was perfect for me. I read all of the reviews and took their advice and tried this dress in the aqua print. I'm so glad I did because I'm curvy and this dress fits without being tight... so no bulges on my not so smooth hips and a nice silhouette where I want it to show my curves. I never thought I'd find a dress I like that I can wear to beach or out into town with hubby or girls. I'm sure this one would look good on practically anyone. I just got an additional one in black so I've got that "little black dress" without spending a fortune or having to have anything altered!!!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use

I am a big fan of PrAna dresses & love the new prints. This is a perfect spring/summer vacation dress, wear it hiking in the day, to dinner at night. I wear it hiking over my swimsuit, easy off for a swim, dries quickly. I bought both the aqua & red prints-both lovely. I am 5' 4'' 135 lbs- size M works for me. Altec has very nice dresses this season!
Lovely but awkward
August 06, 2011
I was looking forward to wearing this dress, it's very cute in the photos and the material is very soft but my main issues were 1. the tie back is awkward and does not fit like other halters, I tried several times to adjust it but it just looked strange 2. while I love the fabric it's the kind that picks up every little particle, dog hair, you name it. So if you put it on and go out, bring tape! maybe if it were made with a coated fabric I would have liked it more. Returning the dress and hoping maybe next year Prana can make a few adjustments and offer it againPros: flattering style, Cons: Bad design, fabric picks up lint and dog hair easily, halter does not adjust well looks awkward

I love this dress so much I bought 2 of them! It is comfortable and has a flattering style. It is versatile and can be thrown over a swimsuit or dressed up for a nice dinner. The material is a little stretchy so very comfortable. My friend saw it and is buying one too. I am 5'5 and weigh 150lbs and bought a large. Some people may prefer a medium but I prefer a looser fit. I would recommend this dress.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use
September 12, 2011
I was looking for a summer dress that would be durable, comfortable, and modest while chasing 3 children around. This is it!!!! I am 5'7" and currently weigh 155--a little "baby weight" still. I bought a Large. It is perfect! This dress hides it all!! I am a 36D (to DD) on top, and the built in bra gives enough support for walking, shopping, and hanging out with the kids. I wore it to a wedding rehearsal dinner on a 95+ degree evening in the humid Midwest, and received many compliments. And I was probably the most comfortable there, also!!! It washes up like a dream, no fuss no muss. Besides all this, my husband thinks I look hot---what more could I want!!!!!Pros: Great design, Build quality
My Favorite Dress...
May 21, 2011
I have quite a few Prana dresses but this is my favorite! It's soft and comfortable and the straps are really comfortable. I'm 5'5" and about 115 pounds and the small fits perfectly. The only thing that I might alter is the hem...but only by an inch or so. I tend to like summer dresses a little shorter! I would highly recommend this dress to anyone in search of a comfortable, soft summertime dress!!!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

I like these dresses. I have them in brown, black, and the black tanktop version. They run a little snug in the body. The bra portion is not quite supportive enough to wear without a bra, so I wear a strapless. I am 120lb, 5'0", 34B, and the medium fits well. I shortened them a little to be at the knee since I usually wear petite. The material has changed a little over the years. My older brown one is a little thicker than my newer black one. But the black is still not so thin as to be inappropriate. Overall, happy w/ them.Pros: Great design

Great dress at a fair price. The fabric is soft and comfy, dries quickly, doesn't wrinkle, and washes well. I bought the blue starburst print, and I like it so much, I ordered 2 other colors/patterns as well. Same thing happened to a friend of mine. Fit is flattering and comfortable. I am 5'8'', 135lb, 34b; lean but muscular build. I have climbing shoulders, and some dresses with wider straps are not flattering, because they accentuate my broader shoulders too much. This dress has thinner straps, which works better for my build. I usually wear a M in prAna tops, but in dresses, a small always fits like a glove! If you are wavering on this purchase, buy 2, because you'll probably end up ordering another anyway!
cute out of the package, cute on
August 02, 2011
prana usually runs a little snug on my short and stocky size 10 frame and will order a size up. however, the reviews stated that this dress ran a bit big. i ordered my of usual size large and it fits perfectly!. it is cool and comfortable made with quality material. shelf bra is surprisingly supportive. figure flattering without being too tight. highly recommend this dressPros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use
cute & comfortable dress
April 18, 2010
Easy comfortable style, bright fun patterns, I ordered this dress in the blue starburst, thinking about getting another in the sage geo. I slip this on to take the dogs for a walk around the neigborhood or to the beach, nice enough for a causual dinner, shelf bra is super comfortable.

This style by Prana is wonderful-- very forgiving! I get lots of compliments on it (I own two different patterns). I'm a size 28 waist, 34B, and the small fits perfect.
Cute, Comfy Dress
May 30, 2010
I love this dress. It is very comfortable. The fabric is light weight, but not thin. I originally purchased a medium because I purchased the Prana Quinn top in a medium and it fit well. The medium in this dress was to big. I am 5' 6 and 120 lbs. The Lilac Geo pattern is very unique and looks better in person than the picture online.
I LOVE THIS DRESS!
March 30, 2010
I ordered this dress in the "dandelion" design...it is ever prettier in real life. Really unique! I love the fit- great for average height girls like me. I'm 5'5", 125 lbs., 28" waist- the small is a perfect fit. Also love the way the back of the dress rests between the shoulder blades-- super sexy!
Comfort for play
May 09, 2011
This dress is amazing! I usually hate built in bras but the top on this dress fits perfectly with no itching or funky seams. The material is soft and stretchy so there is no sensation of restriction. The back is super cute and the cut, while a bit longer than I usually wear, looks very nice. I usually wear a size small in most brands and the small fits great..maybe even a hair big, which is fine. In short I could use this dress in every color.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, comfort, cute
Women's Quinn Dress
July 09, 2012
Based on other reviews, I orderd size XS. I should have ordered S. My Quinn tops are size S. I am 5ft 4, 113 lbs and 34A. I am going to exchange this dress for a S. If you have the tops, go by that size when ordering the dress.
August 11, 2010
Was nervous about ordering the small, but it fits perfect!! I usually wear a M in PRANA tops, but the S dress is perfect. I love it!! It's one of my go-to dresses! It is very flattering. Wish more were available.
Unique sumer dress!
May 29, 2011
I love this dress! It is made out of Recycled Chakara material which feels very comfortable on your skin. I chose it in the vibrant Turquoise Paisley which will look amazing on anyone. This dress fits true to size, I am 5"5", weight about 145lbs and size medium fits perfectly.
May 12, 2011
I love this dress & it fits just like the Quinn top! Was looking to update my summer dresses & was a little hesitant to try Prana because their clothing has been uncomfortably undersized in the past. I have an athletic build-- 5'4" & about 136lbs, 34A. This dress fits great... I have never had a flat stomach, always a rounded belly & this dress skims over my curves without causing bulges. Also love the length-- not too short or long. The straps are very comfortable & don't dig into my trapezius muscles & the built in bra means one less layer to wear during the hot desert summer. This fabric is a great improvement over the stiffer cotton/spandex blend Prana used in the past.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
August 23, 2012
My size is petite. I picked the shorter length. Looks great on me. Good cutting and design. Very comfortable. Great sundress for BBQ and semiformal summer gathering.Pros: Great design
December 02, 2012
I have 3 of these dresses and they are great. I live in them during the summer. I am 5'6" 120lbs and can wear xs or s in this dress. The xs is a little more fitted and a little shorter. The dresses wash up great. I always hang to dry so I can't comment on how they dry. I receive compliments every time I wear one.Pros: cute, comfortable
April 09, 2011
I weigh 124 lbs, 5 ' tall and the dress in size small was too tight on me. I am returning it for a medium. The dress is cute, material which will travel well. Great for summer days.
Dress is very cute...
July 03, 2011
But the built-in bra is inadequate. I'm afraid I'll still have wear another bra underneath, which will be difficult to navigate with the straps. But I like the dress so much that I'll probably sew some cups into the internal shelf bra to provide enough coverage. It's very soft, and the shape isn't as A-line as it appears in the photos--it's almost straight up & down. I'm 5'4", 126 lbs, and the medium is fine on me.Pros: Great design, soft comfortable, Cons: Cost
July 04, 2011
the dress is beautiful and comfortable. It fits snugly but looks great. Sometimes it is okay to show the curves. :-) I am a middle aged woman who looks for clothes that fit my lifestyle and build. I have been able to do this here.Pros: Great design, Build quality

Perfect dress for summer. Flattering cut for any body type

I love, love, love this dress. It is very flattering and can be worn for work or play. The design is perfect for tall and thin women. I plan to order the same dress in more colors.Pros: Great design
September 28, 2011
I got this dress in the turquoise XS from Altrec. It fits well and has its own shelf bra. After I wore the turquoise one, I found and bought the white/citrus version of this dress as well. It travels well, washes well, and I get to look pretty even when packing light. :)Pros: Great design, Performance, travels well
Cant go wrong with Quinn
September 01, 2011
I have 4 Quinn dresses and love them all. Cute, perfect for vacations and hot summer days. Strong bra shelf, cute straps cut in a away that make your arms look slimmer.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value, Lasts forever, Performance
Great casual dress
March 09, 2012
I really love the Quinn dress. The material is just like athletic materials, except a little thicker so it's more flattering. I am 5'0 120lbs. with an athletic build and the XS short fit perfectly. I have a bigger chest and the halter style neckline was extremely flattering. It's still too cold to wear it around, but I know I will be living in this dress this summer.Pros: Great design, Build quality
August 22, 2010
I love this dress and it fits great. I'll be buying another one for sure. A must have dress for the summer.
