Belize Cover-Up Dress

Belize Cover-Up Dress is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I have at least five other cover up type dresses so I definitely didn't need this one, but I had to try it on and once I did, I knew it was coming home with me. I'm only 5'1" so long dresses that work on me are almost impossible to find, but this one hits in all the right places. It's a little too sheer to wear as a dress on it's own, but it's perfect over a bathing suit. I might try layering it over white jeans and a fun bra (i.e. one that can be seen). It's super cute with the laceup sandals. Shorter ladies, this one can work for you! Reference -- 5'1", 108 Lbs, I got an XS because they didn't have xxs in stock and I wanted it for a trip I was leaving for the next day. XS works but I don't mind things being oversized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect beach or pool dress Super comfy. I went for a size smaller because it looked a little big. It's light and breezy and perfect for a hot day at the pool or the beach. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little sheer, little sexy It's a little sheer but super cute! I bought a small and I'm 5'2 and 120lbs. I like the raw hem too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for all seasons Fell in love with this dress! Versatile material with cute style. It goes well with t-shirts/jeans, leggings, shorts, long cardigans, and swimsuits (of course, this is a beach wear). It runs slightly large so consider sizing down or so. I love this dress<3

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better in person This dress is much more flattering than it appears online. Only medium sizes were available when I ordered but I love it enough that I took it to a seamstress. Definitely, agree with other reviewer that a nude slip would make this a great summer dress too besides a cute cover up. My only slight complaint is the neckline is a little low.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and breezy I've worn it twice in the few days I've had it, and I got compliments both days. I wear it as a regular dress, with a nude half slip underneath and a cardigan. I sized down by one size, which made the fit better but still nice and flowy. I may order another one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for the beach This dress is really cute and perfect for the beach - lightweight, loose fitting. I think it will look great as a coverup or as a day time dress. It is very generously sized - I returned the first one and reordered two sizes smaller.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beach PERFECT - a Bit Big for Brunch I love this for throwing over a suit. It is the perfect weight with a conservative amount of "see-through" to show your shape without too many details. I was too excited and wore it right away, later realizing I should have sized down. I would buy it again for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs big! Super cute dress, lightweight with faint pinstripes and raw edges. But runs at least 2 sizes large. Bought this online to take on vacation, sized down to a Medium (usually wear a size 12/32) but was comically huge and too late to exchange in time for my trip. But, if you can get your size right, would be an awesome piece for summer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Runs way to big I like the look of this dress, but even the XXS was to big. I felt like I was wearing a nightgown.
