Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Go-2-Dress I love-Love-LOVE this dress. It is stylish and comfortable. The versatility of this dress makes it my summer "GO-2-DRESS. I can wear it with flip-flops and go-to the farmers market', with sneakers and go-to the park for a long walk. When I pair this dress with a blazer, I can go-to the office. With strappy high heel sandals, I can go-to a night of dancing. I plan on adding another color of this same dress to my summer wardrobe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great dress I purchased the black dress and LOVED the fit so much I purchased another in violet. The black can be dressed up or worn very casually. The side cinches sometimes come undone but it’s worth their functionality. The violet dress is cut a bit smaller in the waist compared to the black so it doesn’t hide the sins as well but that’s what spanx are for! Will be purchasing the navy in the future...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Classy Dress This is a must have dress. I have many Columbia dresses and many or most are more casually styled. This dress is classy! I purchased the darker colored ones. They are comfortable, not binding nor snug. The material is opaque and has a good quality feel which is stretchy. The nice feature about his dress is its length can be adjusted with the bilateral sinch-strings. Now, depending on the person’s height, the length can be at you knees, above or below the knees, simply. I am 5’9”, 143 lbs., 36”-33”-39”hips. This dress can be dressed up or down. It is appropriate to wear to church or for a day on the town or a night out. Bravo Columbia! Please make more colors :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Roll it up and pack it! This is a great travel dress. Looks great under a white jean jacket and the pockets are essential for me. Love the side ties and the colors are good enough to go back for seconds! Add jewelry for a night out, sneakers or sandals. I'm wearing this out all summer. For sizing, 130 lbs, 5'8"- bought medium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anytime casual dress I had bought a large ( my size) runs big. So I got a medium. Fits better. The material feels a little different from others but it is very comfortable. It is stretchy material. I would recommend this dress.
Date published: 2018-04-11
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for me. This dress is well made and I could see being cute on someone else. I found it to be a bit bulky around my middle. I think the fact that it has pockets makes the issue greater. I always like dresses with pockets, but in this case, the slight stiffness of the material just made me look wide in the waist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Dress Ever My friend had this dress and I borrowed it for a recent trip to the Philippines. It is the most versatile piece of clothing that I took and can be worn casually or dressed up. I liked it so much, I bought two as soon as I came home. Hoping that the blue one comes back in stock (size M) as I would purchase it in a heart beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect vacation dress I purchased this dress two days before my trip to Belize. When the dress arrived I was a bit worried that the Red Camillia color was too bright, but it turned out to be perfect for the bright colors of the tropics. I wore this dress both during the day and out to dinner at night. Very comfortable and versatile. I plan on purchasing one in another color very soon.

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 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 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 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 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!
Date published: 2016-07-30
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
