Women's Coastal Escape™ Dress is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Active Dress, Wrinkles Easily, Love the Pockets I love how functional this dress is. The pockets give me so much joy, because it's so uncommon to find women's clothing with such great, useful pockets. The quality of this dress is really great. I wore it camping, and it held up to all of my shenanigans (another shout-out to those pockets...great for holding sticks and water bottles). The only unfortunate thing about this dress is that it does require some assistance if you want to dress it up at all. I have to steam it any time I want to wear it for work, and it isn't really a show-stopper in terms of "class" (if that's what you're looking for), but pair it with a sweater, scarf and boots, and it's an easy professional-looking ensemble. Love the buttons and the tie at the waist and...also the pockets. Columbia's shipping is always right on-target, speedy and dependable. Overall it's a good buy for the sale price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little large, but great I love this dress, it is super comfortable. I am 5'1" and 115 lbs; the XS is a little large. The only bad thing I have to say is that it wrinkles easily but other than that I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this one! I would recommend to buy the next size coz the bust seems to be conparitively small..i bought small instead of my usual xs and it fits well. It is a simple and pretty dress for summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dress Dress is comfortable and cool. The only problem with this dress is it is see-through . Must wear a slip . Priced right

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice dress, except for the buttons! I like the dress--lightweight yet flattering fabric. It fits as expected at the top and has a full skirt. However, the first time I wore this dress, three of the five buttons began to fall off. Their thread was unraveling, and I had not even laundered the dress yet. I had to buy some navy thread and find a needle to restitch them!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ok dress - I am keeping this dress, but the waist is a little high for me (I am tall and long waisted). It is roomy in the skirt area (not a problem) and has a regular fit at the top. Probably wouldn't fit really big breasts. Material gets crumpled somewhat (not surprising) after washing. I am against ironing and will still wear it. I am treating this like a comfortable hanging out dress/beach/after swimming dress. If you are particular about dresses, this might not be for you. I get complements when I wear it (bought the pinkish color), so there you go. If it is on sale and you like dresses it is worth it, but not at full price.
