Rated 5 out of 5 by Anyana48 Blue version of the LBD
The dress is 37 inches shoulder to hem. I ordered a large and it's not very fitted (just as I expected), yet its shape is flattering when worn over leggings or tights. I'd call the color ink blue, not as dark as "navy" usually describes, but a very pleasing color and just what I expected based on other reviews.
Nice fabric weight (like a lightweight sweatshirt) makes this a 3.5-season garment for high desert NM where I live -- good for all but the hottest summer days. Seems well constructed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LizbethLR Runs Small and not true Navy
This is not true navy but is still a pretty blue. I wear a size 16 or XL usually but this was too snug. I liked the higher waist, sleeve length and overall length. The material would travel well and would be a comfortable all day dress which could be fashioned with many accessories for a different look each time. I am hesitant to exchange for a 1X that it would be too large.

Rated 2 out of 5 by merm20 This dress is sized too small.
I ordered a dress and skirt at the same time. They both fit perfectly for a PM. This dress does not even fit my arms. Not sure why but I was very disappointed. I will send it back and order a PL, but that is not what I normally wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CAdie A little black tunic for me
This dress is exactly what I was looking for as a tunic with leggings and with some comfy flared leg trousers. I needed the 40 inches in the plus size to cover a multitude of issues -and it does, beautifully! So don't only think dress, think tunic for those of us who wore miniskirts the first time round, so we are definitely not wearing short skirts now!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pep4 Flattering, packs well
This is a good travel dress for both casual and dress occasions. Flattering fit and really like the sleeve length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LibraryLoving Best travel dress ever
I bought the black version in 2X. It's heavy enough fabric to skim curves and bumps and provide coverage. This was my go-to dress on a trip to Europe. Fabric is comfortable, breathable, easy to wash and spot clean. Then they came out with grey & blue, so I bought those colors. The catalog shows burgundy, but that wasn't available in my size except in long sleeve. The sleeve was too long for me (5'2") but I'll hem them. I prefer the shorter sleeve because it's versatile and works great with a sweater, scarf, or necklace to dress it up or down. My plan is to buy this in every color they make it. The higher waist is flattering, you can make it look different with accessories, the length is good and it doesn't make a heavier woman look dumpy. Why aren't all Plus size dresses this flattering and comfortable? I want the burgundy in short sleeves in 2X. Also, make it in more solid colors, not prints that add pounds and are less versatile. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LizVA simple comfortable dress
Wearing for the first time today and I am so comfortable. The length is great and the cut is perfect for my body type. I've been eying this dress for a while and am so glad I purchased it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Benne2015 I love this LBD!
I love this little black (blue) dress and have several in black and also have one in each of the other colors too. I wear them all of the time and they have held up really well despite numerous washes. The only problem that I have with the latest one (in blue) is that the sleeves feel a little narrow. I am large and buy the plus sizes. They fit perfectly around me but the sleeves don't seem to be sized with the rest of the dress. I have others that I bought a few years ago and the sleeves are looser. Other than that, I love them!
