Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 61 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Look Great, Easy Care, Comfortable I love these dresses. I have them in several different colors. They are easy to wash, quick to dry, comfortable, and stylish. They pack up easily, being lightweight and taking up little space. You can also use them as a jumper and put a thin t-shirt under them. October 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Now I have 2! I had the black dress, and loved it, then I compared the stitching and seam lines of the other colors on the web site to my black dress. They appeared the same. Ordered the plum and they were the same! The plum is very bright. My husband loves it. October 7, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by good dress I like this dress a lot . I hope in future versions they change the empire seam. It is a little awkward. September 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Medium fit, pros and cons With weight fluctuations, I alternate between 34 B and 36 B or medium bra size, so have both. In my opinion, the 34 looks just right, the latter two look weirdly bulgy in the medium dress with the pattern. Pros: cools in sweaty humid conditions, especially with a beeeze or fan, if outside temp gets cooler, not sweaty, does not cool, so good for changing temperatures, like going in frigid supermarket from hot surroundings or travelling from Hawaii to colder places, you can wet it in places for more coolness and the fabric that is wet does not look different from fabric that is dry, also does not show sweat spots, neckline does not expose boobs when bending over, low back increases cooling, does not need a slip, packs down small and does not need ironing, dries pretty quickly, fabric is silky, I have used as dress and as nighty, would consider using as bathing suit, am thinking of trying the black one as a slip. I am just under 5'6" and it covers the tops of my knees. Short version hangs less on belly than maxi dress, pattern shows this less than black. Cons: with the low back, if your back is sweaty it will stick to a vinyl or plastic outdoor chair back or car seat, would be nice to have a sleeveless option with a higher back, I own two dresses and four tops in this fabric, one of the tops had a seam rip out after first or second washing, so far no problems with the others, but have not washed that many times yet, even short dress hangs a bit on belly, hips, makes me pull my tummy in, but pattern on fabric helps to distract fom this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Buy one in every color!! I recently spent two weeks in Florida summer heat. I bought this dress while there on vacation and ended up wearing it almost daily. Everything else that I had carefully packed sat forgotten in my suitcase! Cool, comfortable and seemed to perfect from amusement parks to evenings out. I keep returning to buy more of the prints. Soon I will have every color! August 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great dress Love the freezer lll dresses. Would like to see more colors for the dresses. How about making the dresses with the colors you have for the shirts you carry that are the same material. August 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great dress flattering fit even for someone with an apple figure. i wear a medium or large depending on the cut. went with a large as others recommended and its perfect. i got the black and would like some other solids (feel i'm a little too old for little prints). length is just above the knee (i'm 5 2) and fabric is lovely. hangs nicely, looks put together but not like i'm wearing a work dress and not too sheer. top part has double fabric so doesn't look cheap the way some nylon dresses do. August 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cool comfort A lovely lightweight dress to wear on a hot day. July 28, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Too clingy I returned this product. Another reviewer had commented on how it clings to every lump and bump but I am small and fit so I thought it would be fine but the fabric is very thin - swimsuit material but thinner than on most swimsuits - and really does highlight all flaws. Only buy this if you are very slim and/or perfectly formed. Even then, there's something about the design of the upper half that makes a small-normal bust look like a platform shelf. July 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great find! I love this dress! The fit is flattering, the dress is extremely comfortable. I like the 'flow' of it. I have hiked in it & also worn it out to dinner. It packs/travels very well! No wrinkles. I wish there were additional colors available - I would buy this dress in many colors. Have received many compliments on it. July 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Flattering, versatile Love the dress! Goes anywhere, super fit on my pear shape. Slim but skims perfectly. I bought a second one and wear both everywhere: kayaking, out with our ecotour skiff charters, dinner out, all around town. One small but irritating detail (please fix!!) is that the painted plastic labels in the back of this cool! breathable! dress are NOT breathable and they stick to my back in the heat, especially when I sit. Hope to see some new colors in this exact dress. July 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Go-To Dress I just returned from three humid weeks in the Virgin Islands. This dress helped keep me cool and relatively dry. I have a pear shaped figure. Somehow, the cut of the dress makes it hang just right. I need a least a bit of definition at the waist for the best silhouette. This dress delivers! I have two of these dresses--one black one that I wore from day to night for any event. I also have a blue floral one that I honestly wore mostly around the house because it was the most comfortable piece of clothing I had. July 7, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Flattering & Functional I have this dress in black, my mom has it in a print. Both are very flattering, the dress hangs off of your body rather than clinging to it. I am short, so it hits right above my knees, but it still looks nice! I like wearing it by itself, or it's easy to dress up with a cardigan and a necklace. Note: if you have a larger bust, the seam will ride up a bit. It still looks just fine! June 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for travel Based on the reviews I ordered an XL (one size up) since I don't care for form fitting clothing. The Princess or A-type design along with the STORMY BLUE DOT FLORAL pattern perfectly hide my pear shaped "flaws" (57 y.o., "fluffy" tummy, thunder thighs). Paired it with my $5 H&M sweater, looked great, to me. I'll be using it for my trip to Switzerland this summer and probably for work. Lightweight, packs to the size of a t-shirt. June 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super comfortable and looks great This is one of the most comfortable dresses I've worn. The material is soft and just stretchy enough to be relatively form fitting. I tried several other casual dresses and this was by far the most comfortable and best looking one I tried. Highly recommend. June 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by can use for almost any activity I bought one of the patterned dresses; if you buy a solid color - you must have a flawless body as your underwear/bra areas might show some bulges. The top fits snug - I am a standard medium with average sized breasts and it fits but order up your normal size is a bit tight. You could dress this up or down depending on your accessories. Fabric is stretchy and has a great feel. Would fit a good range of butts ;) Like! May 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Dress! I just received my PFG Freezer III dress. The item is described as good for "fishing". But I bought it to wear to a party in the PNW. I also want to go to dances in it. I love the way it fits, feels great and hangs well on me. Though I've not worn it yet, I think it will be perfect for me and for travel. Very excited about it. I may buy another if this turns out to be as fine as I think! Shan Pacific Northwest Washington May 15, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cute dress, but size up Most of the reviews said the dress was true to size or ran large, so I ordered my usual size. I had to return it for one size larger because it was tight all over. It's cute and fits perfectly in the next size up. It's a lightweight summer dress, perfect for summer travel. I will top it with a cute sweater for cooler evenings. May 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by PFG Freezer III Dress I am very pleased with my dress purchase. The colors are bright and the fabric is soft and versitile. I plan to wear the dress in a casual setting as well as a dress-up event. I would highly recommend dresses by Columbia to everyone. May 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect everyday summer dress I have several Columbia dresses & decided to add one more to my hot summer dresses. The fit is great & very flattering on. I chose the blue print & love it. I'm 5'1" and weigh 100 & ordered XS. Great value for the price! April 27, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not what I was hoping for.... The fabric of this dress is really thin and even though it isn't necessarily snug fitting it drapes in a way that identifies your belly button and every bump. The prints are really cute, but I would only recommend it for someone who is very trim and toned figure. March 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by PFG Freezer Dress Summer Wardrobe Standard This is the best item in my closet! So comfortable I could sleep in it, flattering to every body type, dress it up with cute shoes, fun jewelry and a sweater or scarf for evening, launders beautifully, never needs ironing, get compliments every time I wear them (yes, have in EVERY COLOR!) what's not to love? Bought first one 4 years ago, still wearing it, add new colors every year! February 20, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Too big Followed the size chart and it's probably 2 sizes too big. Super bummed! February 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this dress It's so functional and versatile. The material is very light, and hangs so prettily. My husband and i love to dance and this is the perfect little dress to twirl in. It can be worn for an evening out or an afternoon at the beach. I bought it first in black and just ordered two more in the print styles. February 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Freezer dress Very good value for the price love the fit and fabric I wear it a lot February 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by One of my favorite dresses I love this dress so much that I bought it in black after having it in a pretty pattern, and now that there are some new patterns available I plan to buy it again. It is extremely comfortable. I love the material - comfortable on the skin, fast drying, and light. The cut of the dress is extremely flattering and comfortable. I wear this all summer long. Terrific for packing in suitcases for trips because the material can be balled up and doesn't get wrinkly. I am 5'4", between a 34B and 34C, a muscular 130lbs, and wear an XS, as in pretty much all Columbia dresses. Fits perfectly. Although my waist is indeed about 25", I find I'm closer to a 34 than a 32-33 in the bust. This is not tight at all in my bust, however, even with a push-up bra underneath. I would say I am more often a small than an extra small in other companies, so you may find that if you're borderline, the smaller size will fit you well in this dress (and in Columbia dresses in general). The material is quite stretchy, but I don't feel it is stretched at all when I wear this size. I've worn and washed the dresses many many times. I hang dry them instead of using the dryer (it would be pointless - they dry VERY fast) and they have stayed in excellent condition, looking like new. I can't say enough how much I love this dress. I hope it comes out in more colors/patterns and that it continues to be carried indefinitely. January 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for a hike or the beach I bought and wore this on a cruise and I liked how it went from a hike to the beach, dried fast and was easy to pull over a swimsuit. December 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by More, please! I love this dress. It's perfect for travel, very comfortable and doesn't take up much room in the suitcase. Despite the thin fabric, it doesn't cling or show unflattering bumps. Size small fits me perfectly at 120 lbs, 5'3". The neckline is flattering but not too revealing, which is great. My only complaint is that when I try to order this and other similar dresses from Columbia, the colour selection is often limited to black. Please put some more vibrant coloured simple dresses out there! September 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by love this! Very flattering dress, comfy yet stylish with a great price! Ordered an XS, I'm 5'5" and 118lbs, it's perfect fit. September 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very comfortable, a bit stretchy across the bust Overall, a great purchase--I live in Florida, where it is very hot and humid for about four months. The dress does feel cool, and hangs well. The only issue is the bust. I am a 34C and a small in this dress, but the material does stretch across the chest in a way that is distracting to me. The medium would have been too big. I think that this would have been solved by a built-in shelf bra lined in blue. August 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by second skin dress - moves like you do This is the perfect throw-on and go dress. It stretches with you and never wrinkles. The straps are wide enough to hide bra straps and looks great. August 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Fitting Summer Dress I ordered this dress after seeing my daughter wearing one. It fits perfectly and is great for travel. It easily washes by hand and dries quickly, is cool in summer heat, and doesn't wrinkle. I love that it gives a sundress look while avoiding a plunging neckline. The straps are wide enough to keep bra straps under cover and there is no need to wear a camisole to cover exposed cleavage. I hope this dress returns for next season in some colors that will flatter me. I was only able to get the black in my size but wanted it in the periwinkle color which is gorgeous. I wear a size 4P in most brands of clothing and an XS in most Columbia clothes. I am just a tad under 5 feet tall and weigh 110. August 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great dress, runs small I love this dress, and get many compliments too. It is my go to on a hot day and flattering cut. It does run small so I'll buy another in large.....I am usually small on top, ordered a medium. August 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this dress I get lots of compliments. So comfortable August 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Flattering dress I love the fit of this dress. It is very flattering and I have gotten quite a few compliments on it. It does not wrinkle and can go from daytime activity to a bit dressier at night. I am definitely ordering another one. August 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this dress I am in love with this dress. Love the fit. Not too tight. Flows freely without clinging. Fabric is cool, comfortable and wrinkle free. Great for traveling and a great all around dress. July 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everyday dress this dress is so comfortable and versatile ,I loved it so much i ordered another one straight away ! July 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMAZING This dress is super comfortable, light weights, and breathable. I especially loved the softness of the fabric. This is my go to dress for all occasions. Highly recommended. July 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for hiking I hiked the Maryland Section of the Appalachian Trail in this dress and have walked and hiked 100+ miles at home in it. I LOVE this dress. Sometimes I even sleep in it (we don't have air conditioning). Super comfortable. light weight. and durable. I plan to buy another soon. more colors would be great! :) July 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A must-have dress! I own the Marakesh Maven dress and love it, so I decided to buy this dress because it was made of a similar material. Well, as much as I love that dress, I love this one even more! It looks so nice on. It is fitted, but not clingy. You can dress it up with accessories or wear it to the lake with your flip flops! I have received complements each time I have worn it. I wish it came in more solid colors. If it did, I would purchase it in every one available! You will not regret this purchase! June 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Black dress Fantastic dress- most comfortable dress I've ever had & goes with everything :) May 25, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very comfortable, cute dress! The fabric of this dress is nice and comfortable. A cute sundress to wear on a day out. May 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Travel Dress I bought the PFG Freezer III (black) as an essential wardrobe piece for six weeks in Italy this summer. Planning to pack light and being forewarned of hot temps, I wanted something light weight yet not flimsy. This dress is perfect: cool on the skin, not see through or clingy, rolls into a tiny parcel, and unpacks wrinkle-free. It runs true to size and is not too short. I bought the XS and am 5'5", 112 lbs, with an athletic build (read small-breasted and straight-waisted). I plan to wear this dress a lot! May 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My "Go to" Dress! I love this dress! I agree with what someone said earlier... my only complaint is they don't make it in more colors. I have this dress in every color. I absolutely love the way it fits. I'm 5'7 and 135 lbs. The Medium fits me perfectly. It's great for travel because it packs well, is very light, and doesn't wrinkle. I just bring a light sweater and my Freezer dress in all colors and I'm ready for a long weekend! May 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this I love this dress. You can dress it up or down. Comfortable and cute. Doesn't wrinkle. My only complaint- lack of color choices Definitely size down- The fabric and cut have give May 1, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Austin The material for this dress was too thin and I expected more of a fitted effect around the abdomen. I didn't like the way it fit and felt like it created the wrong illusion for my body type. I am 5'2 and 130 lbs. Perhaps the small would have fit better, but I still didn't like the way the fabric laid when wearing the dress. April 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Women's PFG Freezer III Dress Another nice Columbia day dress! I love that it has protection from the sun. The dress is very light and will serve me well when in the Phoenix sun. Additionally, I feel I could wear it in the evenings too! Great fun dress. April 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this dress! I bought this dress in black for a little summer dress to wear with flip flops. It did not disappoint. The material is thinner than I expected but that is a bonus. It is light and perfect with a cardigan or jacket. I own another Columbia dress that I love and this one is even better! April 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it Beautiful summer dress. It feels and looks great. I am looking forward to warmer weather so I get to wear it. I normally wear small in most clothes. I ordered the small and then decided to order the medium to see if it fit better. The medium was perfect. April 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great versatile dress I absolutely love this dress...casual or dressed up with a sweater. Very comfortable and very versatile. Also very flattering for those who have a little belly...hides all flaws, not tight in the middle or chest! April 13, 2015
