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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Isbella83 Beautiful color- WOW great pockets
I received the cobalt blue dress. I will have to redo the sleeves since they are tight. The dress was a little long on me I'm 5'3" but that too will not be a problem since I can sew. I put this dress in the washing machine and it did fade so I would recommend you wash it by itself before wearing. Remove the dress when it is 3/4 dry and hang it for continued drying. You don't have to iron it then. Be sure to throw in a Bath towel in the dryer too. This will create the fabric to be less wrinkled....well that and some fabric softener.
Love the color and with white jewelry....it will be perfect. Thanks TOG

Rated 5 out of 5 by karenbeauty Comfortable and looks very nice
Fabric seems to be of good quality; a little hot for summer days, but for fall and winter will be just right. Very comfortable to wear - not too much fabric to get in the way, but enough to feel swingy and hang nicely. I wear from XL to 3X, depending on the clothing; the XL fit my shoulders perfectly and looks very nice. Fortunate to find this on sale, otherwise, may be a little pricey. Very happy with purchase and colors - periwinkle and aqua.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Marsha51 Very "full" fit
Returning this garment even though the color was beautiful. The L-XL was sized more like a 3W!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FOREVER39 BEST BUY IN THE CATALOG!!
I HAVE PURCHASED THIS SAME DRESS FOR APPROXIMATELY 20 YEARS, BEGAN WITH ANOTHER COMPANY WHICH WAS MERGED WITH TOG SHOP. THIS HAS TO BE THE MOST VERSATILE DRESS AND THE COTTON FABRIC IT IS MADE UP IN WEARS AND WEARS. I AM WEARING STILL THE FIRST ONE I EVER BOUGHT! WHEN YOU LAUNDER THE DRESS(ES), YOU HAVE BUT TO DRY THEM ABOUT 15 MINUTES AND THEN HANG TO DRY AFTER THAT. NO IRONING AT ALL!! I HAVE ONE OF EVERY COLOR AS A NEW COLOR IS ADDED EVERY YEAR OR TWO. MY ONLY COMPLAINT IS THE NEWER DRESSES DO NOT HAVE THE SAME FULLNESS. EVEN THAT HASN'T DETERRED ME FROM BUYING ANOTHER NEW COLOR! I LOOK FORWARD TO THE NEXT YEAR'S CATALOG TO SEE WHAT NEW COLOR HAS BEEN ADDED!
