Rated 5 out of 5 by mommaof3 Best summer dress
I love this dress. Yes, it is oversized, but that's what makes it so comfortable. The first time I wore it I got complements from a 70-something year-old-woman, as well as a 20-something year-old, who yelled at me from across the street! It is a relaxed shift dress, which reminds me of pieces popular in the '60s. It's a classic. And so easy. I wore it to the office one day, then ran around the yard with my kids while wearing it another day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by abcdefg Stick to the smaller sizes!
I'm a size 12 and I own the other poncho dress as well in black and white. I love the cut of these dresses because I'm short 5'2" and big around the tummy. If you are about the same size, you can get away with a small and or XS. If you're a bit taller but wear a size 12, try the medium. I love this and I could lounge around the house and I add a statement necklace and wear sandals and it becomes a perfect summer dress. I ordered the xs for both poncho dresses and this is just a tiny bit shorter than the other one.

This is a sort of loose maxi dress and is not comfortable wearing out....

Rated 4 out of 5 by RJCC Nice dress for hot summer days
Lovely lightweight dress for hot summer days. Very easy to wear--I know I'll wear this one a lot this summer and next. I though the length was just fine and I'm 5"9.'

Rated 2 out of 5 by bridget Too oversized
I ordered this online, I'm usually L but it was sold out so I got M. It's still huge on me. I'm a fan of loose clothing, but sadly this doesn't work on me at all. It's too wide all over, but quite short which is not a problem until I raise my arms and the dress rises almost all the way up my thigh, It's way too wide to consider wearing a belt with it, there would be too much fabric to gather. Perhaps size S it might work better, but I think it would be too short so I will just return. It's a pity, as I would love a nice, lose (but not quite that oversized) simple shirt-style dress.

Rated 1 out of 5 by emarie The dress is just too huge!!
The dress is just too huge!! I understand the poncho silhouette design intent but it is just too tent like. Not flattering at all on someone that is a size 10. I was very disappointed as the fabric is beautiful and has wonderful hand feel, but alas I must return the dress.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hankerin Not flattering, no shape
I ignored the reviews on this dress because it looks so cute on the model. I'm 5'4 and ordered the extra small. It is not at all flattering, has no shape. Disappointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by momof2girls where is the xxs??
i was going to order this dress (as I own the other Poncho dress and LOVE it!) but noticed the xxs was NOT offered in this pattern? Why not?? of all the dresses, this one should come in xxs since it runs so large anyways.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Peneloppa77 shorter than on the picture
It's much shorter than on the picture, and it looks more like a shirt than a dress. Didn't like it at all. May be on somebody less tall and very slim it will look fine.
