Rated 4 out of 5 by from for women with small waists dress bunches I loved the dress but returned it as I am a petite woman with a small waist and although it fit well generally, too much material at the waist. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, buy it! I love this dress. It's just an easy dress to wear. I have 3 now. It shapes to the body without gaping or showing too much. I always get compliments, and I'm not in perfect shape right now. 5'-6', 129lbs, 36A, and a small is perfect with just enough drape/hang and not any fabric cling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect travel dress I love this dress - lightweight, doesn't wrinkle and versatile enough to wear for business or play. I had a black one and just bought a blue one too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this dress This dress is a great travel/any use item. I now have 2. Can be layered, fit flattering, love the ruching for flexible length. Dress it up or down. I am over 65yrs and a 34DDD (smallish hips) which is usually a problem in a dress but not this one. Keep on making it or a variation pls. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flattering, fun dress I thought this dress looked great on. I personally would not wear this hiking, but rather out to dinner, running errands, etc. The adjustable side ties were a fun feature, adding interest to the dress, and also practical in that it's great to be able to adjust the length. I thought the material was just a little stiff, but assume that might change after a washing or two. Sadly I ended up returning it due to it being too big. I'm 5'4" and approx 117 and ordered small. There are currently no XS in the coral color or I would've definitely reordered. Also want to say that I considered this true to size, I just should've ordered XS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Little Travel Dress Great fit, good for any type of travel. From the beach to the streets.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No definition at waist Great fabric, I can see why people like this; it looked horrible on me. 5'6" , 128 lbs, narrow shoulders, got the XS, fit fine in hips and top, but the waist goes straight down and there was a ton of extra fabric on each side of my waist. Returning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous dress, for so many occasions! I have this dress in 3 colours now, my favourite by far. Great fit, no wrinkles, washes well, the perfect travel dress! Have received many compliments on it. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)
Date published: 2017-04-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Anytime Casual Dress is a good name for it. I was looking for a multipurpose travel dress that was easy to hand wash and wear the next day. This fabric doesn't cling and just glides over the body, but it still has shape. It wicks moisture. It's quick to dry and I can dress it up or down. I can do up the side strings and wear with leggings or with a shirt or little jacket and scarf. The length can be made long enough to the knee to get into most religious sites. I will look out for more colours in the future. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this dress! Arrived 1 week ago and I've worn it 3 times. LOVE, love this dress. Easy to wear and so cute. Lots of compliments. Will be my go to dress while in Europe this summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable!! Very happy with this dress! It fits perfectly, is extremely comfortable, washes well, moves with me, repels water, and keeps me very cool. I use over my bathing suit to ride my bike to the beach and to hike. I have the black one and did not find it too hot to wear in 90 degree weather. Highly recommend. I am 5'4", 110lbs and the size small fits well. The XS may have fit too but I wanted to be sure it wouldn't be too tight so I bought small.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little dress. Sporty I'm usually a medium in this brand and this dress in that size fits large on me. Otherwise it is a nice sporty dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite go to summer dress! I love the material of this dress. I can squish it in my suitcase and it's good for a dinner or on the beach. It also has pockets which is good for me as I wear an insulin pump. Keep this dress for another season, as it's a great fit for curvy woman like me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this dress- and I am NOT a dress person! This dress is so comfy and I feel so good in it because the fit and fabric are great! I am 5'0" about 115 lbs and a 34D. I ordered the small. Probably could have bought the x-small but like being able to wear a little tank underneath. The dress is longer on me than would be on most because I am so short- goes to my knees, but the side cinching makes it ok. I wish I had bought the other color as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 90 degree with 70% humidity Best Dressing These items are the very best for summer dress in a heatwave. Will from now on wear these styles and fabric!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering I purchased this for a trip to a humid climate where cotton takes a long time to dry. I've just worn it once at home over a swimsuit and it was actually quite slimming. Havent gone on the trip yet so I don't know how it will work out but I belive it would dress up or down nicely. Pair it with a necklace for going out to dinner. Black is hot though, wish they made it in other colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Anytime" dress I love it! It is super comfy, especially in hot weather. I wear it over my swimsuit and casually out and about. My only wish is that I could get another one in blue!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this dress This is the perfect warm-weather dress. It fits without being clingy,and I love that it has pockets. I wore it for the first time last night when I met a friend for dinner and she gave it a big thumbs-up. It's also very easy to dress up/accessorize. My only complaint is that it doesn't come in more colors; I would buy them all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MY GO TO DRESS I now own 6 articles of Columbia Sportwear clothing designed and constructed of this miracle fabric! I throw on this dress and it's cute enough to meet a friend for lunch or perfect to pack in a suitcase for a long trip. Washes easily, dries quickly. I have three dresses, one skirt and 4 pants in this fabric. Waiting for more styles so I can keep adding to my wardrobe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LIVE in it! I have 4 of these. 3 black and one everblue. I wear it with everything. You can dress it up or down. Wear a shirt over it or a flowing kimono. Is great for yard work, walking the dog, or going to the farmers market. The material is light weight and stretchy. I wish Columbia made more dresses in this fabric! I also have about 10 pair of the anytime pant. Just love the material as it is stretchy, cool, not see through and does not fade. The cut of this dress is wonderful with the top sleeveless but still modest. The ties at the side allow you to control the length. I just let them out to make it longer.
Date published: 2016-07-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite! Outstanding everyday work or run-a-round dress. Fabric is comfortable and forgiving, whether I'm sitting at the office or chasing my 2 year old grandchild around. I prefer the longer length, but appreciate the option to shorten it a bit with the side ties. I would put another one of these in my wardrobe!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not as flattering as omni freeze dresses cute dress but not as flattering as omni freeze dresses. I like the material but the style makes me looks like of frumpy (5 pounds heavier than I am). Great dress to wear around the house in hot/humid hawaiian weather though

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first time This is the first piece of clothing I have ever purchased on line. I saw this dress on a hanger in a locker room. I liked the look of it so much, I looked to see who made it. When I got home I looked it up on the Columbia web site. I took a chance and bought not one, but two dresses in different colors. They arrived before the delivery date, they fit and when I wore one out that night I got many compliments. This has been a very sweet first time experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Women's Anytime Casual Dress I bought this dress because I love the Anytime Casual Knee length Skirt. This dress is not knee length in fact it is about 2 in above knee. I am 5'6 and never would have bought if I had known it wasn't as described. I gave it a 4 star because I love the fabric and style but just too short for me. It was expensive to send back and will think twice about my order in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute dress - great for summer This dress looks very cute on and it's great for summer with a light jacket or bolero. I find the shaping is just right for my figure and my figure is far from perfect. The blue color is flattering and the material is comfortable and durable. If I were you I would snap this up at the current price of $34.90. I paid more for it and still consider it a bargain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dress! This dress is so comfy! The material is somewhat stretchy providing a great fit. Pockets are a great addition. The drawstrings on each side of the skirt allow you to shorten or lengthen the dress. Love this dress! Can be dressy and casual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sporty and Feminine! I love this dress! When I put it on my husband was very pleased. He said, "Wow, honey, that looks amazing!" I have a large frame with wide shoulders. I also have large "lady areas" and this dress fits in all of the right places. The ruching makes it extra cute. I would feel comfortable wearing it on a trail or out to dinner. It fits but also has a stretchy quality to it. This is a wonderful dress if you have curves!
Date published: 2016-05-12
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for me The fabric does not have a lot of five and stretch and so I did not like it as a dress. I also thought the ties on side felt awkward. Perhaps better suited for someone younger and less of an hourglass figure. :)
Date published: 2016-03-31
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not fit well ... Stats: 5'2", 98-100lbs, wide shoulders for size, 32a-b-28-35. Ordered size XS. No significant gapping at the armpits or neckline. Actually, fine at the top. From the chest down, very shapeless. There are adjustable strings on each side at the hem. You can cinch them up for a ruched effect. When I did it in hopes of making the dress more ... fitted? visually appealing? it only emphasized the sack-like appearance I was hoping to eliminate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sporty dress Tough and stretchy material. Fits my taller athletic build. Would fit larger boobs and smaller. Would probably be a bit baggy on tiny hips ;) Tapered at the waist. Has a gather strings at the sides so the dress can be made shorter. Like!
