Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 91 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by This dress is so comfy and pretty. I packed it just today to take on a trip to Hawaii. I think it is pretty and the fabric feels so nice. January 8, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great dress! The dress was great to take on vacation, no wrinkles, fits true to size and very comfortable. It will be a favorite once the weather is warmer. It hangs nicely, feels great and I like the below the knee fit! January 1, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely comfortable dress! I bought this dress on sale and it is so pretty and fits perfectly. I ordered a small petite as I am 5'1. December 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect! The moment you put this dress on...it feels wonderful, like you could it wear it every day....the material is super soft and comfortable. The fit was perfect for me, like it was customer-made to fit my body. I got the 'regular medium' because wasn't sure if the length on the petite would be long enough. The only minor thing I am not in love with....is the print; but I like it enough to live with it. December 28, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Buy 1 size up I purchased the original cut Bella Coola dress about 4 years ago and it has worn very well. The cut was body skimming and the length was mid-calf. Perfect for a flowing summer frock. I am 5'1 and 112 lbs and at the time I purchased the PS. This year I purchased this dress in PS in the "new cut" and in a different pattern. The "new cut" is clinging and the hem ends in the middle of the knee--too tight and too short IMHO and unflattering. I returned the PS and purchased the PM. It fits ok--not as well as the old cut but good enough, especially since I purchased it on sale. I am still 5'1 and 112 lbs and prefer the "old cut" to the "new cut." December 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is my go- to dress! This dress is a dream come true! As a curvy, petite woman it can be very hard to find flattering, dressy, looking clothes and this dress makes the cut! I ordered 4 different patterns and am complemented each time that I wear one! Great fabric, very nice drape and the higher bust makes it more professional looking. Thanks for a fabulous dress! October 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lots of compliments The best part of this dress is that it is very comfortable. The fabric is soft and stretchy, but not clingy. I like the length of this dress because it covers my knees, but it isn't so long that it's mid-calf. I've worn it two times and have received compliments each time. : ) September 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by nice dress This dress is very comfortable and forgiving when you have bloated days. The fabric is really nice and it's made well. The patterns are great----they hide those rolls. September 23, 2016

How would you describe the difference between the coral floral and the tropical print?
A shopper on Apr 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The coral floral is much more pink, while the tropical print is a mix of pink, orange and green - I tend to think of it as more orange, with some green, and don't really notice the pink.
Please be more specific about what is meant by " bust friendly". Is it just that there is a seam under the bust, or is there extra material in the bust that might be baggy on smaller women? I loved the old Bella Coola, but I am afraid to buy the new one because it sounds as though it will no longer fit well. Could someone please post a more detailed comparison of the fit, especially the all-too-important "friendly" bust? Thanks! :)
A shopper on Mar 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have an old Bella Coola and a new one. The difference for me is that the new one is considerably tighter in the bust and waist area. I had to go up a size.
I purchased a bella coola dress last year. When you changed the fitting, did you enlarge the bust?
TerriE on Feb 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: A bit more fitted and a lot more bust-friendly.
Is the dark color in the Abstract Floral print black or navy?
Archies Mon on Mar 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is definitely a navy; absolutely lovely, casual dress. I am very pleased with the fit and have both this color and the black and white print.
Does this dress on this page have ties in the back for good adjustment?
L P on Jun 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, it does not have ties. But this style of dress is so well proportioned that if you order the correct size it fits very well. I am very pleased with the Bella Coola line of dresses.
What about shrinkage?
A shopper on Aug 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have at least six of these dresses, none of them have shown any shrinkage. They come out of the dryer wrinkle free.
Do you need to wear a slip with this, I.e., does the outline of your legs show through in the "right" light? Thanks!
Patricia G on Apr 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: While I always wear a half slip with skirts/dresses...it makes them hang and flow better...I think you can get by without one with this dress fabric. I have two of these dresses...the black floral is def. OK for no slip. The lighter color one...white with blue flowers...is OK though very bright light backlighting you might make your legs visible. In most situations, I think you could get by.
I loved the 46" length of the dresses I bought last year. And the bust fit was perfect! Now I want to order a new color, but am afraid I won t like the fit. Is the bust smaller?
Kay B on Oct 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: For me, both the bust and the midsection of the dress were smaller in this year's version. Last year's Medium still fits beautifully, but I needed a Large in this year's version to get the same fit.
Mad hatter, Which print goes well with Jade jewelry?
Carlene G on Mar 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi, recently wore this dress in Hawaii with turquoise/jade colored necklace and it went great. Aqua/turq. background with lots of olive and black sprinkled around should work fine with jade... Peggy, Washington
I own 2 Bella Coola dresses purchased over 1 year ago and the waist seam is above the waist (as in empire styling). Does the "new fit" mean the waist seam was lowered? It appears that way in the photos.
Teresa A on Feb 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the waist is lower this year, but it is not a problem for me. I get the styles with lots of pattern in the fabric and you don't even notice the difference because the styling is so forgiving.
For 5'6 or 5'7 would this be about mid calf?
Annette S on May 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Lengths: Misses 43"; Petite 41"; Plus 44"
why is this not adding to my shopping bag?
deborah b on Apr 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I think this is a systems problem at Sahalie. I have had the same problem and wound up placing my order by phone.
