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.
I really like the tamiami shirts - perfect for hot humid summer weather. So a dress in that material sounded perfect. I forgot the models are very tall generally so this dress is like a maxi. The back is slightly longer than the front and comes to my ankles. Which is ok but not really the length I wanted.
The new mint looks like the exact same material from the shirts. Their IS a gather with drawstring at the inside waist and you can tighten it quite a bit. The placement really seems like a sewing pattern error. It has to be tied because the material is so light but doesn't lay flat and slightly distorts the way the fabric hangs. Another issue is no button where the drawstring is (which wouldn't be a problem with the tie on the outside that would hold the fabric down). Probably will put this thru the sewing machine for a few adjustments. Got this on sale so that's fine but not at full price. I think this runs larger rather than smaller so I would say get your regular size.
I wear an extra large in the Columbia Tamiami sleeveless shirt. I ordered extra large in this dress. If fit well in the hips andut was too large on top. I didn't bother to get another one because, if the top fit, thahe hips most likely would not. I'm very disappointed because I really wanted this to work.
Excellent dress! I wear a lot of "house dresses" bc I figured out they're MUCH cooler than shorts and shirts! This is perfect wearing with active sandals and sneakers. I wear the best footwear I can bc my feet need it. This dress is super flattering if you have shape. I'm an hourglass shape. 5'4. Size 6. The small fits great (other than the chest. 34C; a bit tight there so I wear sport bra). Enjoy!
