Rated 1 out of 5 by Princetongal disappointing
I was so excited when this dress came out. I ADORE the Lobstah Roll print, for my height 19" is the perfect length, plus I was looking for a cute, easy summer dress. The Westerly looked like it was going to fit the bill perfectly. . .until I tried it on. I found the cut to be extremely unflattering. I am slender, but the dress seems to give me (or at least accentuate) every little bulge.
I also found the high neck line to be unflattering so I tried the dress on back to front. Actually with the V iin front, the dress fit and looked much better, but Lilly does not match prints across seam lines so if you try to wear the dress backwards you have a vertical seam running right down the center line with the prints askew on either side of it.
The Westerly has a lot of potential, but in its current form it is a big miss for me. If you are looking something with a similar feel but a better fit, I would try the Hayley dress, It doesn't come in Lobstah Roll (which would have been perfect -- sigh!) but it does come in two other cute prints, Nice Tail and Crystal Coast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Janie1234 Great summer dress
I love this dress. The print is so cute and is so comfortable. Some people complained about the Terry but I don't mind, it's soft and thick. Sometimes I don't like how Lilly's dresses are so sheer but this one isn't, the material is thick enough for you to wear any color bra and underwear. I am 5'6 125 pounds, I usually wear a 2 or 4 in lilly and I ordered a small. I don't like when my clothes are too tight, and the fit on this was perfect. Overall I definitely recommend this dress.

Rated 2 out of 5 by court4390 terry...?
ew, i was NOT a fan of this dress at all. sorry, guys. the terry just rubbed me the wrong way. i found it too thick and too confining. it also clung to me in all the wrong places. i tend to have this issue with lilly's t-shirt dresses (eliza, cordon racerback, etc) where it's super loose around my mid-section but clings to my hips & butt. so it's probably just my body type but i did not find it flattering at all. the cap sleeve also bothered me? paired with the prints, it made the dress seem childish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GirlInTheSun Comfortable and easy to transition.
The fabric of this dress is fairly thick, and I've found that to be very helpful with transitioning from warm weather to cooler temperatures . It's become one of my favorites for days where I go to the movies or other locations that tend to be freezing cold even in the middle of summer. :)
The dress was flattering on me, and I have an hourglass figure for the most part. I did notice, as other posters mentioned, that the fabric highlights every little bump.
Overall, it's a pretty day dress that gets me compliments literally every time I wear it, but it might not be for everyone so it's probably best to try this one on before committing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tastas A great laid back style!
This is the perfect dress to throw on and go! So comfy! I love the slightly thicker terry material, as it's not as clingy as the thin cotton tank dresses, so it's more forgiving and falls nicely. It fits just like the Anastasia which I also found to run slightly larger in the shoulders and chest :/ I ordered a small, I wear a 4 in the Delia and Eden shifts. 5'8, 130lbs, 32D...x-small was just too small, but I love to belt it so it works perfectly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LillyAmbassador Perfection!
I could live in this dress all summer long. It is just so easy to wear, comfortable and launders with ease. It does not wrinkle, holds it shape and is FUN. I mean these prints are just too die for cute. The cap sleeve is great!
The fit is true to size in that I wear a size 6 and took a Small in this pretty dress. It is a great length that allows you to wear it for so many events. Don't just think beach party with the Westerly. It is so versatile for a casual day at the office to dinner al fresco.
The only drawback with this dress is that it only comes in two fabulous prints! We want more! xx

I am 5'9", 130lbs...Love this dress, thick enough that you can't see through but still breathable in the hot NC summer. I wish there were more prints available. Cute!
