Rated 3 out of 5 by florene Nice fabric and color
I was very disappointed in the small neckline for this garment. The photo indicated a much larger neck opening, but this is not evident in the real dress. It's barely large enough to get over one's head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pxxx I have bought three.
I bought my first dress and liked it so much that I purchased two more in different. They wash beautifully and NEVER need ironing. Will probably obtain another one if they offer another color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barbie34 Easy to wear and care for
Really loved this float! Have ordered others previously, but the 100% cotton fabric on this one was more lightweight than the others, and made it very comfortable to wear. The fit was great, very comfy. The sleeves were a little too tight, but I simply snipped & slipped out the elastic bands and all was fine! Will definitely buy more in other colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dinnerbell liked the dres very much - my favorite style
I made a mistake in ordering XL. I am large but this is somewhat tent size.
I will only be able to wear it as a house dress, as too too big for
public wear. I learned - I hope - a bothersome lesson.

Rated 3 out of 5 by bleh not quite what expected
Fabric was a little heavy for summer wear; I thought I ordered teal rather than dark blue, willing to believe it might have been my mistake

After spending hours and hours online in a search for a solid color muumuu dress styled like this one, I found none other and decided to order this in the deep blue color, size M/L. I truly, truly like this dress.
For comparison, I am small-boned, medium-size, about 5'2" and 118 lbs., and find the dress just right for me. The fabric is medium weight, easy care, and can be worn all year round, with layers in the winter. You could even sleep in it.
The square neckline yoke is comfortable. The body of the dress is essentially a six-gore, A-line skirt, which allows the dress to flow more gracefully than a straighter style. The sweep of the M/L hem is about 96 inches.
The elastic on the sleeve openings was tight. It fit my wrist, but not my upper arm. I wet the ends of the sleeves and stretched them over two inverted Mason jars, and left them to dry overnight. Now the elastic is just right for my upper arms. If it should become necessary in the future, I would replace the elastic with longer pieces.
This dress would be nice in other medium-weight, textured fabrics, and in solid colors like hunter green, maroon, dark purple, navy, slate blue, or deep teal.
This is the first muumuu that I have ever owned, but it certainly will not be the last. I have ordered five more of this dress!
