Women's PFG Armadale™ Halter Top Dress is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit This dress fits so nicely. I am either a Small or a Medium depending on the brand and in this one, I wear a Small and it is very comfortable. It sits nicely on the body. The length is perfect for being sexy yet could still be worn around "family." Feel of the fabric is great. Very thin, light material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like reviews I read the reviews on this dress and was thankful that "it ran a little small" which helped me decide on the size to order. I love this dress. Easy, carefree, great for travel!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice with a few issues I really love this dress. That being said, I have a few small complaints. I'm 5'2", 115lbs and the xs fits well. I also tried the small and found it to be too billowy and shapeless. The problem is that the arm pit area is tight. I tried to remedy this by tying the halter more loosely but this lead to a very saggy breast look. The material is soft so the tight arm pit area wasn't that bad and I really didn't notice it while wearing this dress. Something I LOVE about it is the top has pockets to slip in pads to wear this sans-bra. I used the pads that came with a bikini top and they worked wonderfully!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for This is a cute dress that is both feminine and practical. The material is very comfortable and can be as formal or informal as you want it to be. I generally wear an 8 or 10 and a 38c bra, and ended up buying an extra lg because the store was out of the large size. A medium would have been much too small. It needs to be taken in a little bit at the sides near the bust but other than that it fits perfectly. I am 5' 7" and the dress comes just to my knees. Because of the stretchy fabric the halter doesn't pull on my neck and the cut of the dress accentuates curves without clinging to my middle like so many of them do. I tried inserting cups into the dress as suggested, but found that I liked it better without them. Thanks to the darts and quality of the material, nothing can be seen through it. I purchased the collegiate navy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sun Dress I like this dress and have it in three colors. This is the perfect dress for cruising. It is very cool, light and easy to pack. You can wear it with a light sweater or scarf to cover up if you want to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty, but tight in the axillary (armpit) A very pretty dress, requires a strapless bra. I would take out the ruching under the breast. The halter leads to tightness in the axillary, even when it is tied looser. I find myself tugging at it a bit. Even still, a great dress at a great price. I have it in the purple foxglove and black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Sexy Little Black Dress This dress is a wonderful sample, great for wearing on hot days, or swimsuit cover up. The fabric is amazingly light, soft, breathable and this dress will take you into the evening as the sexy little black dress. A must.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dress!!! This dress is wonderful for hot days because it is really lightweight and comfy...I have two and will probably buy more. I love most of the Columbia dresses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome dress This is a very pretty and comfortable dress, perfect for going out or running around. I have it in Harbor Blue Print and the color and pattern are amazing. I wore it to a beach wedding and received lots of compliments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant and Comfy This is my new favorite little black dress, perfect for the insanely hot weather we've been having. It's so easy to wear and I look well-dressed without any effort!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very comfortable and sport functional dress This is a must have dress for summer. Made from wonderful fabric that keeps you cool and comfortable. Multi functional purposes, great for beach wear, as just an outdoor walking dress, or a comfortable summer's evening party dress. Also being a bike enthusiast, I can sometimes wear this, depending on the type of riding I'm doing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect little black halter dress! This dress is extremely comfortable, great to wear on hot days with high humidity! The sweat is "wicked" off you :o) I will say, you will either need to purchase a strapless bra OR (better yet) go to Jockey Stores and purchase "cups" that you can insert into the bra area of the dress (there are slits there to specifically allow you to purchase the right size cups that you can slip into the dress!). I did that and it's awesome. No extra bra thingy ANYWHERE! I highly recommend purchasing this awesome little cute thang. (If you can, click on the image, I have the dress on!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dress I ordered this dress in black and LOVE it. The fabric is light and cool enough so that I can wear it in 85-degree sunshine and not feel like it's holding in the heat. I have broad shoulders so halter tops are often the most flattering dress style for me and this is no exception--however unlike some other reviewers I don't think this dress looks good on me without a strapless bra. Oh well. Love the length--I'm 5'7" and it hits me just above the knee. My only complaint is that I wish it came in more solid colors! I want another one but I'm not into purple.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute and flattering I ordered this per a salespersons review. They loved it so much, they bought two. And so did I! The material is lightweight and wicking so I think it will be perfect when the weather turns warm. I can't believe I can get away without wearing a bra. I am a 38C and I would normally never attempt such a thing. But the design is flattering in all the right places. No nip! My only suggestion would to to add an inch or two to the length. I am 6' and Im showing a little more leg than I prefer. The large fits best in the chest, but I need the XL so it doesn't cling at the hips. Even though, the upper part still feels supportive and shows off my shoulders nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sexy dress Love this sexy dress!!! Tapers in under breasts just enough to make you look slimmer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just right for shoulder surgery Ordered this so I had something to wear going out to dinner right after shoulder surgery, needing a halter top. Husband thought it was pretty sexy. I thought it was perfect for my limited arm use. Only problem was that a side seam was not fully matched and so I had to repair a small hole. No time to send it it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought this dress for an "urban hiking" trip my husband and I took to San Diego. I wanted something casual, functional yet attractive to hit the Gas Lamp Quarter for dinner. We did a lot of walking and this dress was perfect! Stretchy, forgiving, all around comfortable and enough support that no bra is needed. Bonus!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shot in the dark Looking at this solid color halter, I didn't think it would flatter my figure, but I tried it and loved the way it fit. I decided to order the print and it offers even more distraction from my oversized, middle-aged rib cage. I am constantly searching for clothing that feels comfortable in warm weather and this dress is so perfect for nearly every occasion just by adding a shrug or cardigan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very flattering I purchased two of the halter dress and it is going to be very versatile for any outdoor activity but very cute to wear out. Wrinkle free material and so happy with the dress that I am going to order one for my sister.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, functional This dress is made of really nice, cool material and looks great on. It's comfortable and pretty and can be worn with cute, stylish sandals or athletic sandals.
