Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful fabric, awkward shape At the sale price, I had to try this dress for the beautiful jacquard pattern and color. Having tried it on, I agree with reviewer JAYS about the boxy shape. The real problem was the skirt. Online, it looks like a moderately full skirt gathered to the waist. In reality, it is a straight skirt with gathers instead of darts (an XS was 38" at the widest point--barely more than the standard 2" ease for 35" hips). Because the fabric has little drape or give, this makes for an awkward puff of fabric below the waist with little walking ease. A fuller skirt (or darts or flat pleats instead of gathers)could have made this work. As JAYS notes, the inelastic waist seam makes the dress a bit hard to put on. At a short-waisted 5'3" the bodice fit well enough, with the (loose) waist-seam hitting my natural waist --on an average-to-long waist it would be slightly raised (sorry, forgot to measure before returning). The bodice would be fine if the skirt was less awkward. If you don't mind the minimal walking ease, and find this sort of skirt flattering to your figure (and several reviewers did), by all means snatch it up for the stunning fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable Sundress!!! The Bahia Sundress is so soft, so sweet and sooo pretty! The turquoise and white is just lovely - sooo beautifully fresh and cheery! This dress is made of a lighter weight knit, which is just perfect for Spring and Summer. I love the simple, easy and feminine style (soo comfortable). I purchased the Tuscan Lace Cardigan in Pearl White to wear with this dress in air-conditioned settings and it's a lovely combo. I am looking forward to sunny warm days so I can wear my new favorite sundress! I just love it!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty dress but not right for me I loved how this dress looked in the catalog/online and I ordered it in my standard PC size (S; I am just under 5'7", 120lbs, athletic build). When it arrived, I was disappointed in the fit/cut of the dress. First, the shape was more "boxy" than I expected. The bodice and length of the dress were too short and the overall cut of the dress felt more "classic" than "semi-fitted (note--I have an average-to-longish torso). Addtionally, there was no "give" at the seam between the bodice and the skirt, so it was somewhat difficult to put on. The upside to this dress was the color and pattern (both were striking) but since the fit did not compliment my body and the dress was not inexpensive, I returned it without hesitation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful but expensive! I was almost hoping that I wouldn't like this dress because of the price which I think is very high for a sundress! Well, I tried it on and there was magic. Just like others have said, the colors are stunning! And the shape of the dress is wonderful; it hides imperfections while emphasizing my figure. Did I say that it was also comfortable? Well, I decided to keep it. Some things are just meant to be.
