Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite sundress I love my new sundress!! I love the material & it fits perfectly. The length of this dress is just right and the the armholes fit great too. I also enjoy the fact that there are no wrinkles with this dress. Easy to wash, dry, and wear. I loved wearing it on a recent cruise!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect dress Love this dress. I live in the Caribbean so it is hot, hot, hot here in the summer months. Because this dress is so light weight and soft it is perfect for this climate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! I bought this dress because I needed something to keep me cool and cover up my sweat (I'll put a man to shame) when it's hot out. All I can say is "WOW". The fabric is light and has almost like an under slip kind of feel but is not sheer/see through. I ordered the extra small and it fits amazing. I am 5'5" and have a more muscular build and my dimensions are 34C, 26 waist, 35 hips and I kind of have a bubble butt ;). This dress hits and hugs all the right spots without looking too tight or too loose. Not too tight in the armpits or across the chest and doesn't sit weird on my butt (like some dresses/skirts do). Seriously, I really, really, like this dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Flattering and Modest Dress The material and cut makes this dress very flattering. I can wear a long sleeved t-shirt and leggings under it to keep warm in the winter or without on warmer days. It is modest, yet cute hitting just at the knee (I'm 5'5"). I'll be getting a lot of wear from this dress. I wear a small almost across the board and the Small in this dress fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOMEN'S PFG FREEZER™ III DRESS I purchased three of these dresses - different colors. Wear them, wash them and put right on again. I wear dresses all summer because it is more comfortable than shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect travel dress! I love wearing dresses. I was looking for a dress that was lightweight and wrinkle free and this fit the bill. I am 5'4" tall weigh 127 lbs. and have a 34DD bustline. I ordered the medium. It is just a little tight on top... But it looks great on, if I sized up to a large it would be too big and too long. The material feels great on and I love the pattern.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it I was skeptical about buying this dress without trying it on first because I haven't had great luck with other brands of outdoorsy dresses. I absolutely love this one though. The fit was perfect; flattering and comfortable! The colors are great and I feel great wearing this dress in a number of different situations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wife loves its! Bought one of these for my wife and I've ordered 3 more. The material is amazing for the hot climate that we live in. She's loves the fit. She's made it causal or dressed it up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So wanted to love it! I kept trying to make this dress work because I so loved what it could have been for me. I first ordered a small, which is my usual size. It fit beautifully, was incredibly comfortable and very well made. It is the perfect dress to wear to work or on the water. However, the empire seam at the bust kept crawling up. I am 5' 6"and relatively high chested so usually have no trouble with empire tops. I tried to figure a way to add an inch to each strap, but ended up giving the dress to my friend who is 5' 2".The bust was still short for her, but not quite so bad. I then tried a medium. Same deal. The medium was too big in the body of the dress, but the bust area again too short. An extra inch on each strap would make this dress perfect. So sad not to be able to have it fit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely summer dress Perfect dress for warmer weather! Just a bit tight across the chest, but not so anyone but myself will notice; flows nicely from the waist down. Fabric is clingy but not uncomfortably so. Very lightweight and will pack nicely, without wrinkling.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Form fitting, slinky, figure hugging I am 5 foot 6 and 125 lbs, so certainly considered slender. I ordered the small, which was tight at the bust, and showed every flabby bit I possess. I considered ordering a medium, but the clingy fabric would've emphasized my flaws no matter what size, so I returned it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great dress but runs small I find the freezer dress to be the most flattering and feminine of all Columbia dresses. This one though is cut a little smaller than the four others I have from previous seasons. I will return and try the large even though I'm afraid it will gap under the arms. I am generally a true medium 8/10, 5'8'' and 145. Wonderful fabric perfect for hot/humid summer days. Would love to see a version that was about 3 inches longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dress Love wearing dresses whatever I am doing & this one is NO exception! I purchased this to wear fly fishing in Hawaii last month & it was just so cool (wore bike shorts underneath too in case the wind got the best of me)! Am going to get another one for the summer :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
