Women’s OuterSpaced™ Dress is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Comfy Dress Like all my other Columbia dresses, this one is a keeper! Soft comfy dress for summer days. Length was a little shorter than I'd expected, and the shoulders were a little more narrow than usual, so I sized up one size. Definitely recommend this dress. Works well with a sweatshirt on cool mornings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great swimsuit coverup I wanted something throw over a swimsuit and wear to the beach. This does the job. The style is cute enough and comfortable. I'm 5'1" so I was concerned that the drop waist style would look funny on me, but it actually works. I often order an XS but because other reviewers said it runs small, I went for a S and it worked well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Favorite True to size, soft on the skin, super comfortable, simple and fun to wear. I feel a skirt slip is needed. I love this dress! I took a chance and ordered a few dresses on this website and I liked 90% of them! And getting them on sale makes it even that much better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from comfy "after workout" dress Fits more like a medium. I'm 5'4" and it's a bit long waisted. Made for people a bit taller but still works that it just overhangs a bit over the drawcord. Color is very pretty- I have the Stormy Blue and I've gotten a few compliments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun short dress I wear this dress with leggings so I don't mind that it is a little short. I tie the fabric loosely around my waist. It is perfect for quick errands, throwing on after a yoga class or as a cover up at the pool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tad short I really like this. It's super light weight material and really cut on. It was just a little bit shorter than what I was hoping for though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from sports dress Sports dresses with sleeves are difficult to find this season so I was really hoping to love this one. I considered returning it but there was no alternative item. The color, texture and thickness of this dress is great. The level of the waist/tie is odd - too low. If you cinch it on your waist the dress is too short so you need to cinch it at or just below your navel. It looks fine but its not natural. Once I got used to that I was happy with the dress.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little comfy dress I just received this in the mail today and another great purchase from Columbia! I am starting to look at my Spring/Summer wardrobe and when I saw this for the price, I thought, why not. I am surprised I am the first review! It is so soft and so comfortable. It fits great and a nice soft colour. I am 5'6, 165lbs and 38D chest, I bought a Large. It is very flattering and can't wait to wear it running errands or maybe out for a walk. I could even camp in this! I am hoping it shrinks just a tad as there is a wee bit more material around the waist with the drawstring but it's so comfy. Thanks again Columbia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and flattering I love this dress. I am 5'7" and 130 lbs. I ordered a medium and it fits well. It is short but not too short: any longer and the style would look frumpy on me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish I could return it I am 5' 4" and it is way too short, especially if you try to "bag" the top over the drawstring, like the original model photo-it has been replaced with a photo of it basically straight-that makes it very unflattering. I went ahead and kept it and finally tried to wear it the other day. My husband thought it was a pajama and was worried I forgot to get dressed! I wish I hadn't taken the tags off-I should have returned this as soon as I tried it on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dress! I'm 5'1" and 115 lbs. I purchased this dress in size small. I LOVE it. I have the drawstring waist tightened right above my natural waist, and then the top bags out just a bit in the most flattering way. The length hits right above my knee. The fabric is soft and comfortable. I just might order it in a second color.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Almost A Keeper I really wanted to love this dress. I am always looking for comfy, but cute dresses. The main problem I had with this dress is the placement of the drawstring. I love the concept, but the draw string is in a very unflattering place. It If it was higher or ever a little lower I would have bought this dress in all the colors. I am 5"2" and 105 lb with a small frame, this dress just didn't work for me. Sad as it is a cool idea.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful but way too short This dress would the perfect everyday companion, but the style is far too short to be functional. I am 5'3", 108 lbs, and bought the xs. It fit perfectly in the shoulders, waist, etc. However, the lower part of the dress needs to be about 3 inches longer. The length came up about 5 inches above my knees. The photo doesn't show it on a model, so you can't tell how short it is. The details say 37 inches, but I don't believe that is accurate. I had to send it back. Before you purchase, check out photos of it on a human from other retailers. Columbia should show it on a model to clear up confusion. In the future, make it 3 inches longer and I will buy it in every color!
