Women's Reel Beauty™ II Short Sleeve Dress is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from casual fun Hangs nicely. Flattering. Length is at the top of my knee (I am 5'9). Oval neck might show bra a tiny bit. Material is soft. I washed it a few times now and it didn't shrink. This isn't a winter dress, but a cardigan and leggings has worked for me in the office. Cute for around the house especially if you are sick of wearing sweats...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very large, loose neck hole I was really looking forward to receiving this dress, but unfortunately it was unwearable for me. The neck of the dress was so loose and large that the only way I could wear it is if I wore a cami underneath and even then, it would hang too low. I am 5'5" and 123 lbs. I am thinner on top and rounder in the hips and normally wear a small. This one definitely did not work for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Loved This Dress But Neck Gapes ALOT I saw this dress in the navy striped and knew I had to have it. It fit like a dream. Except in the neck and shoulder area. I'm 5'3 115 lbs and work out a lot. I have shoulders. I have never had a dress or shirt of any kind do what this dress did. I had to return it. It gaped and drooped something fierce. It was a no go. Too bad because it is a beautiful dress with a gorgeous drape. I would buy it in a heart beat if they fixed the neck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs big in the neck The pluses- I like this dress, easy to wear, about knee-length, good coverage. The negatives-It does run a bit big in the neck so I do kind of feel like I am "falling out" of it. I almost need a cami or tank to feel more secure that I am not flashing anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best little black dress ever!!! I ordered this dress in black and loved it so much I ordered the blue stripe also. It is the perfect little black dress and is very flattering with the tie string waist. Perfect work dress also because of the short sleeve and knee length. The black dress attracts lint and hair so pack a lint roller with you and you will love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice cover up I took this dress on a camping trip and it met all my expectations. I would have liked to have had it in a lighter, solid color but black works. Very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More Stylish Than Expected Very cute dress to throw over a swimsuit or with a cute pair of flats for the evening! Dress it up with a scarf or necklace. Love it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wide neck dress I read that the neck was a little gappey so I ordered a small (I normally take medium). The neck is still large but the dress fits everywhere else OK. With a jacket or light weight scarf I can make it work. The quality is nice and I can't wait to get a bit of a tan and start wearing it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So comfy,could be better Love the dress! The fabric is so soft and very stretchy. I found the neckline too big so I threaded elastic through the neckline and now it is perfect. I do wish it had pockets.m

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Knit Dress I love this dress. I did order a size smaller due to the reviews and I am glad that I did. It fits perfectly. I highly recommend this dress - perfect length, excellent quality, flattering. You can't go wrong :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from lazy day dress This dress feels like you are wearing sweats! super comfy and i could wear it all day. does run a tad big, but it might be the style. i do wish the tie on the waist was removable so i could wear it lower. goes below the knees.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute little dress I really like this casual little dress. I'm 5'6, 125lbs and the XS fits perfectly. I would normally wear a S in most brands so I think this runs a little on the large side but I got the right size so I'm happy with it. This will get a lot of wear this summer!
