Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dress I ordered my normal size and I wish I had ordered a size smaller. It still works, but I may order another color and I'll definitely go down a size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little short but I love this dress The straps are a bit far apart, but with my build it works well by drawing attention to my shoulders and away from my hips. I am 6ft tall and curvy. I wish it was a little longer because worry about showing everything when I walk up stairs. That being said, I logged in today to see if there was another pattern I like because I want another one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Straps way too far apart I bought this as a travel dress but found the straps were WAY too far apart in size 3X to be flattering. The armholes are huge and would show most of my bra. I wear it only over my black bathing suit and nowhere else. It was much too expensive for a bathing suit cover-up!. The dress fits okay in the waist and hips, though in the plus size it is not nearly as flared as in the picture. The material is light and cool but does show every bulge and panty line underneath. Not recommended in the plus size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freezer III Dress Wore this dress on the hottest, most humid day so far. It keep me cool, even out walking in the sun. The fabric is very light and airy. Would highly recommend this dress. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This dress is horrid I read the reviews prior to purchasing this dress and the only standout negative was the wide placement of the shoulder straps. I figured that wasnt thaaat big of a deal, so I gave it a try. I must say, the straps were set pretty wide, but that wasnt the biggest problem with the dress...THE FABRIC IS HORRENDOUS. It seriously feels like a slip dress, is not flattering in the slightest (shows every single imperfection through the fabric). I really wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt...dont waste your time with this dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dress I love dresses and this one for summer is perfect. I like the way it flows and fits. It's comfortable to wear and looks great for a day out in the sun or even a date. So cute too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOMEN'S PFG FREEZER™ III DRESS - PLUS SIZE Cool and comfortable. No surprises - description is truthful. This dress is sitting perfect and protect me from the sun. Love it. My favourite dress in this summer :-) (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Such a pretty dress. The dress is a bit big through the shoulders but very comfy and silky. I am 5'4" and it hits me just below the knee. I ordered another in black, but it looked like a nightie, so will return that one. It gets very hot in the summer where I live and I think this will be perfectly cool and comfortable. X I would recommend this dress. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Plus-sized proportions are off The skirt on this dress has no flare to it - and because of the fabric, it makes my hips look extra wide. The straps are very wide and far apart with large arm holes. I liked the concept of a plus-sized, summer dress with technical fabric. But this one is designed terribly!
Date published: 2018-04-18
Rated 3 out of 5 by from cute Cute but I have very wide ( broad ) shoulders and the straps on this dress are out to wide even for me . Not sure what someone who's not quite as broad as me would do . Also fabric has really weird smell that I hope will go away. I am torn as to keep it or not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress This is a great little dress ..... sooooo comfortable , no cling at all ! A bit wide in the shoulders but not problematic at all - could even be worn as a "jumper" in a little bit cooler weather . Definitely would recommend this dress , you can dress it up or down .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great summer dress I bought this dress 2 weeks ago and I've already worn it to the beach over my bathing suit and to work with a cardigan and ballet flats. It's so lightweight it's like you're not wearing anything at all! I know it will be my go to for 100*+ days.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Plus size dysmorphia? I really wanted a summer dress with the cooling action. This dress was designed by someone clearly unfamiliar with a plus sized body shape. The dress fit around my hips and waist but the arm hole was way too big and the straps were so far apart they didn't even hang on my shoulders. Were they thinking that a 3x had disproportionately larger, wider shoulders and boobs? I couldn't even get a tailor to modify the strap issue. I would love to come to your fit and design office and offer my voluptuous 3x body as a sample size in reality for the dress. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)
