Rated 5 out of 5 by cmw31 LOVE this!
I got this dress last week in Trippin and Sippin and wore it for the first time to an outdoor music festival in Florida on spring break, and it was great! I typically wear a medium, but an XS fit me really well. The length on the xs was too short, however, so I got a small, which was a couple inches longer and still fit well! It's a tunic so it's a looser fit, so sizing is more flexible. If you have shorter legs, an xs could be fine, but if you're concerned about length, you could absolutely size up without the dress getting too "baggy" because of the tunic fit. Sizing is very forgiving, you can't really go wrong!
I love this dress!! It's SO light and comfortable, perfect for summer heat! As other reviews have said, the fabric is thin/light, but I wore it with a nude bra and it was completely fine; partly because the print I got it in is so bright.
So cute and versatile, can be dressed up or down, and is just a really great purchase! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by GirlInTheSun Comfortable and breezy, but the sheerness limits versatility.
I puchased this item as a cover-up, but I love the print so much I'm looking for other ways to wear it. It's a good value for what you get- the gold buttons give it enough detail to allow you to wear it in multiple settings without looking like you're, well...wearing a beach cover-up.
If you plan on wearing this as a dress though you will definitely need a slip as it is VERY sheer, and the shirttail hem means that even very short slips show on the sides. Wearing it as a dress felt like I was wearing a sack, as from the front and back this item is insanely cute, but from the side it made me appear wider than I am. It looked much better when I belted it, but then it was too short to not show the slip underneath.
I think this item is cute and possibly versatile if you can find a slip that works. As a cover-up it is pretty near to perfection, just maybe not as a dress, even for the petite ladies.

I bought this in an XS in Bright Navy I herd you. I always wear a 0/XS in Lilly. The fit is slightly loose and boxy, it's not a fitted look at all, but that's the style for this particular tunic. I really like it! The fabric is lightweight and slightly sheer, perfect for the hot summer when you don't want to stroll around in a sloppy tank or tee that makes you sweat. I know it's a cover up, but I bought it as a loose, airy summer shirt. I cannot stand wearing shorts out in public unless I have a pretty top on, so I bought this one. I am only 5'4", so this is long on me,hits right above the knee. I haven't worn it --it's been too cold, but before I do, I am getting it hemmed several inches shorter ---so it's still long enough to cover my bum when I'm on the beach, but short enough to wear with shorts for a casual, but slightly dressy look. I think the bright navy will look beautiful with a chunky gold necklace, crisp white jeans, and wedge sandals for dinner out or a summer party. I don't think I'll regret shortening this a few inches. As a dress, it's far too sheer, and with the way it has a shirt-tail hem, it's too revealing from the side. I will get more wear out of it if it's shorter. Worth every penny though! Buy it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by tootiebaby Stylish, versatile tunic
I bought the Captiva in the Iris Blue Bubbly print which is adorable and bright; it just makes me happy. This garment is so versatile as it can be worn both as a stylish beach coverup or as a tunic over a pair of white jeans or pants, as the length is perfect for both. If you're young enough, it could even be worn as a short dress, albeit with some sort of slip as the fabric is a bit sheer for that purpose. The roll-up sleeves with tabs provide an extra fashionable touch. I liked the Captiva so much that I even bought one for a friend for her birthday!

I bought this in Trippin and Sippin and love it. In shifts I wear XS pretty regularly, but in strapless dresses and some of the sheaths I range from a 0-4 depending on the material, style, etc. This tunic is perfect to wear as a dress on weekends and in the summer. Since it's not quite warm enough yet, I've been wearing it with capri leggings and it's perfect. The amount of fabric in the tunic makes me look a little boxy so I belt it with the Gold Metallic Bow Belt or a hot pink belt i got with a different Lilly dress a few years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LiveinLily Excellent to wear around the pool.
Fabric, design, detail & print are superior and cool.
A must have for the summer to cover up when you are in a resort atmosphere and need something to have lunch or walk to your room at the hotel without feeling under dressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mebs Such a Perfect Tunic!
I was a bit hesitant with this tunic initially; it seemed a little too long for a tunic and too short for a dress (I'm tall). But after nearly living in it in Hawaii with white capri leggings, I am a total convert. It looks quite stylish and is so easy to wear; the fabric is so light and airy and yet it manages to look far more sophisticated than the typical tunic and leggings look. With nice sandals it was appropriate for dining out and anything else. I'm purchasing in additional colors this time around. Love it!

Beautiful tunic that is perfect for the beach, or anywhere. This is my favorite Lilly tunic yet. Fabric is lightweight and cool. Casual and preppy!
