Women's Aria™ Dress is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Makes you look worse if you have small chest This dress is almost like designed to make you look worse than you are. I don't recommend this if you don't want to look bad (maybe okay for girls having big chests though). I bought this dress because it has a built-in bra. But the bra cups are vertically-wide, thin, not really molded but rather flat, and the they are not supported exactly under bust but below that line by one inch or two, which does not give any support. If you have big chest, it would push up the bra cups and the under breast support may come right underneath of bust, but if you don't, you will have it one to two inches of space beneath of bottom of breast as in my case. Because the top part of dress is not tight, it shows your breast and possibly nipples when you lean downwards as the bra and textile sag down as well. If I pull the under bust line down hard to avoid the problem, it makes my rather flat chest even more look flat than it actually is, and not only that, it makes my small chest look saggy for some reasons!! I am a C cup and I have never seen my chest looking saggy before...it is not that big after all. I don't know how it happens. The textile looks good and feels nice but it is a bit too warm for Hawaii where I live. I should have returned the dress but I didn't try it in time. I will wear it at home or I might have to donate it. I have a lot of dresses having internal bras but never had this problem before. I love my other Columbia clothes but this one is a big regret.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from wrong colour This dress is grey, although it appears blue online. I liked the style. It did not fit me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs large but cute dress The built in shelf bra is great and provides appropriate coverage. It does run large, in my opinion, but I ordered a size under my usual size. I'm 5'4, 120 lbs and ordered an XS.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A bumpy breast... One side of the modesty pads in the bra was shipped with a fold that caused such a deep wrinkle that it made my breast look bumpy. Not really what I was going for when I ordered LOL! Maybe Columbia quality control could review practices with staff in their packing division. Regarding fit, I am high waisted, petite and have high waist-hip ratio. I expected it to be somewhat long in the waist since sizing wasn't petite but it was pretty extreme. Not flattering unfortunately on my 30" waist and 40" hips (it was tight in the hips despite size chart measurements). I think it might only look good on someone tall and slender with a long waist. Sad this will be going back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great dress! This dress was perfect, minus the fit. I'm 5'8, 130lbs and very active. I usually order small in all Columbia apparel, but I will be returning to get an extra small. The overall quality of this dress was fantastic! The material is very soft, comfortable and forgiving around curves making for the perfect dress to travel in!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs Large LOVE the coral color of this dress; however, as stated in other reviews, it runs rather large. I will be returning to the store this week. Overall, the dress is extremely well made. If it wasn't so large, I probably would keep it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Built in Bra I love dresses that have shelf bras, and this is a flattering dress that fits that bill. Although the "cirrus grey stripe" looks blue in the picture, it's very much so just grey. Still cute though. Definitely go down a size if you're wondering what size to get. It's designed to be a flow-y dress, but my regular size would have been too big.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like! Great material even after washing a few times. The fit is good and hangs well on the body. Waist is only a bit too high (I am tall and longer waisted), so I feel lucky about that. Top is stretchy enough for big boobs, but looks good on my smaller ones; forgiving in the skirt area, but not bulky. Top has padded inserts that can be taken out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits large Loved the fabric and how the built-in bra fit but the dress is very large. I normally take a large and measured myself as per the fit guide and was the exact measurements for a large and it was way too big.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from If only it fit Would have been perfect if it fit! Smalls from Columbia usually fit a tiny bit on the larger side for me, but this dress was huge so I'll have to return it. I'm 5' 6", 115 lbs, and a size small felt at least two sizes too big. It has a shelf bra with padded cups! And the drawstring is so cute. Super versatile and the fabric would have been comfy.
