Foundation Dress is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 258.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and very flattering I was hesitant to buy this dress, thinking it would accentuate my wide (though slim) waist, small hips and somewhat lumpy bumpy figure (I’m 56). I ordered the green color, and was pleasantly surprised to find that both the color and fit were very flattering. I’m 5’11, and the dress is long enough, falling just above my knees. I am thrilled with this dress! I dressed it up with a long necklace and nice sandals for work, but it can dress way down for hanging out at the lake or around town. This dress will look great in the fall with boots and a jacket, and will go seamlessly into Winter and Spring. Would love to see more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic everyday dress This dress is made with very comfortable and thick fabric. The skirt portion is double-thick. The color is a beautiful wine-red and I feel dressed-up but not over the top when I wear this. I think this dress would fit any body type.For sizing, I'm 5'2", athletic/curvy build, with smallish waist and larger hips. I ended up with the xs and find that it fits really well. It flatters my shape but does not sit like on the model. I have larger chest, so it's not as loose but there's still room in the top and formed shape in the bottom. Perhaps a larger size would have made it more lose but I like how it fits currently even better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect I bought this for a trip to Maui. The fit is ok, the small is just a tad too big for me. When I walk it slides down and makes the dress look awkward. I have a booty, so I was surprised by that. Having to adjust the dress was annoying after a while. I removed the tag and I think it looks cuter reversed. I tried it both ways and it just seemed to look better backwards. I didn't have time to buy the xs and do the whole exchange dance before I left and they didn't have this dress in store. Overall, I like the dress, the blue is a beautiful color in person and the fabric is really soft. I just wish it fit me better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute, slightly too big I did a lot of research as to what size I should get, and based on the ratings I thought small would be OK. I'm 5'6" 120lbs and slender build but the small was a little too big. It's baggy at the top and the skirt part is too long. I'm never an extra small so I was surprised. I live abroad so it's too much of a hassle to return it, so I'll make the best out of it. I got the dress in blue and it's more of a t-shirt top than I was expecting, so it would be hard to dress it up too much, unless maybe I had a smaller size. More for casual Sunday afternoon wear. Nice fabric though, definitely quality. Now I know that I'm an extra small so hopefully I won't make the same mistake with sizing again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wasn't working With My Broad Shoulders I was so excited about this dress when I ordered it, but when it arrived it just didn't work with my body type. I have an athletic build with broad shoulders and a larger chest, 34D, typically wear a size 4 or 6. This did not flatter my figure at all. It's loose on the top and fitted from the navel down. With my broad shoulders it looked way too boxy on the top and then really fitted in the rear. Weird fit. Additionally, I got the lighter color which was see through up top. I guess you could wear a cute bra underneath and that wouldn't be a big deal, but wasn't the look I was going for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flattering fit, pretty color I read the reviews that mentioned problems with keeping the skirt in place but decided to take a chance on this dress anyway. I'm glad I did! On my hourglass shape the dress is very flattering and the skirt stays in place without issue while I'm walking; it does ride up after I've been sitting a while, but that's not so surprising with a fitted skirt. I just pull it back down and go. The top fits nicely through the shoulders and bust, and is a loose through the waist -- not so much that it looks sloppy, but a touch bigger in the midsection than it needs to be, so 1 star off. Love the v neck, the cranberry color, and the soft, comfortable fabric, which should be great for travel. I'm 5'4", 125, 32c/d and got the XS.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute dress, but overpriced Cute style and a good option for sundress without looking frumpy. Fabric is very soft but very thin and you can't get away with wash and wear, must be ironed. For this reason, I don't think it's a good value at the $80 price! I've washed it twice and feel the fabric got just a little "fuzzy" (not pilly, but not as nice as put of the pkg.) I think prana, for all its touting an easy and active lifestyle, could produce a more durable and wrinkle resistant fabric. That said, it's a really comfy, cute dress.XS fit me perfectly, I'm 5'5", 125lvs, athletic build, A cup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this dress! I bought this dress in black and the heather green in a size medium. I am 5'6" and weigh about 145 a 36D. I ended up exchanging both for a size small and it fits much better all around. I love these dresses! The fit is great, the material is soooo soft and they're so comfortable. I love how you can dress it up with heals or down with sandals and still look put together/stylish. I'm thinking of buying it in the blue color too. One thing that I don't love is that the black material is a bit see-through on the top because it is not double lined like the skirt part on the bottom. (if you are light skinned and wear a black bra under the black dress you can see the bra against your skin.) This won't stop me from wearing it though.

What is the length of this dress in a small?

Asked by: Anonymous
It's quite long when pulled all the way down. I'm 5'8", and it drops below my knees. I pull it up to the length I like and allow top to billow over.
