Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great dress! I needed a dress for a hot climate. We spent a year in Africa and this dress got me through. I wore it all the time! It washes easily and dries fast. I had good coverage in the neck and armholes, and the length was perfect - not too short or long - hit right above my knee. I wish it would come back in more colors. I also like that it isn't a "tent-like" dress style - it has some shape to it. May 22, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by TRAVEL DRESS This is a light weight dress that will pack well. It does have larger armholes than I would like but will be ok with a black bra. It has a nice fit. August 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just wish I could have gotten it in Hibiscus too! It does run a little large but it is a very flattering cut for me. I love the way it will wash and wear and doesn't wrinkle. Perfect for travel. I had lots of compliments. And jewelry or a different scarf makes it look totally different. You can dress it up or keep it simple. I love the secret pocket. I'd love to see this dress back in your line in some new colors next spring!!! I'd buy one of each. August 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great dress I love this dress! It is so light weight and easy to wear. Add a scarf or jewelry and you can really dress it up. I wore it and 2 of my friends want one. My only complaint is it's a little tight through the back and I'm small, it feels like it's cut a little smaller through the back, but nothing that keeps me from not wearing it. Taking it to Europe and would love to wear it everyday!!! July 16, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Weird sizing! I usually wear a size small (4-6), but this dress was enormous with huge armholes and material through the bust line. Because I needed a simple black travel dress, I purchased the extra small. It is a little tight but acceptable. With many Columbia items, I find that the sizing is wacky. Best thing is to always try items on! The quality is fine - this is simply a sizing issue. July 4, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by No, Not at all! Geez, I really struck out on my whole order. I don't know what is going on with Columbia's sizing. Based on the size chart I am a size small. The dress I received fits the measurements on the large maybe even extra large chart. This is ridiculous. Red Hibiscus is more of an orange. The dress has one nice zip pocket which would be a plus if it even remotely fit. June 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect summer dress I have been looking for a dress like this for three years. The fit is a little loose so that is cool and comfortable but doesn't look like a sack. The length is right above the knee , very flattering. Unlike many of these athletic style dresses, it isn't too narrow in the hips. The zip pocket is perfect to carry a key, bank card and a lipstick. I absolutely love this dress. May 26, 2014
