To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
A few years ago, I paid full-price (unusual for me!) for a Columbia dress that is almost identical in style. I pulled it out this year and thought “Wow, I’ve worn this dress a lot for a couple years ... and it doesn’t have any stains!” And it’s generously sized so the couple extra pounds didn’t require me to go up from an XL when I placed an order for this dress (in Lichen-versatile color). I like the v-neck on this and the adjustable length is awesome. The shaping is great (for me at least - bigger on top, not so much on the hips and putting on middle-aged spread through the middle.) The fabric is slightly stiff but not at all bothersome. It seems to not be a sweaty synthetic feel at all. Debating going with one in black for flip-flop formalwear.
