by PAL825 Love this dress
I love this dress and how flattering it is. I did have to go up a size because of bust. When I recently wore this dress to an outdoor wedding I received more compliments than I have EVER had....from girls in their 20's, to women my age (mid 60's), and men. One man even told me "You rock that dress!" This was my first Lilly dress but I am now a fan forever!

Rated 4 out of 5 by PalmettoPineapple Basic Lilly Shift Everyone Should Own
This is one of the few Lilly Pulitzer shifts that I love. I love this shift because it's perfect for both older Lilly fans and younger ones as well. I also love that it comes in quintessential colors that you can easily pair with anything. I got this dress in True Navy, because the gold lace REALLY pops beautifully, and the Navy transitions nicely into the Autumn Season. The one thing that disappoints me is that if you have a slightly small bust like I do, the chest area on this dress will be a bit loose, and the arm-holes will stick out. I'd also really like Lilly to listen to their fans, because I know many women who simply just can't wear your brand because you do not carry Petite sizes...Honestly, if you really want the dress, but it's too long for you, you are forced to get it altered, which is an unnecessary extra expense.
Lilly please make more classic circa 1960's themed clothing! WE LOVE THAT! I'm always, always looking for classic Lilly shift styles, so if you could design more vintage-themed shifts I'd really appreciate it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by OprahVevo Dress fits great, and color is awesome!
To the creator of this dress: I still can not get over how you managed to create a perfect form fitting (but not too tight) dress that both looks AND feels great when being worn. Like literally, the fabric of this dress is so smooth and perfect, it feels like it was made from angel feathers. And the color? its not quite teal, but not quite baby blue: instead it was more of a unicorn tears color. The only downside to this dress was that I had a difficult time finding a nail polish color that matched it. Perhaps in the future you guys could put swatches on the side of your dresses online for nail polish colors that could be worn with the dresses? That would be mega helpful. But again, no pressure to do that because otherwise the dress was perfect. 10/10 would recommend. And to anyone who is debating purchasing this dress: If you love getting commented on how fabulous you look, and if you like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain, then this is is the perfect dress for you (but don't actually wear it in the rain because the dress probably looks best dry and not wet...) Whoever made this wonderful dress: you stay golden, ponyboy. And I will see you all again in the future when I buy my next dress!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AK827 New favorite dress
I have to admit - I own A LOT of dresses. I wear dresses 5 days a week for work, sundresses during the summer, and going-out dresses on weekend. And the Janice Shift Dress is my new favorite item in my closet.
I purchased a size 4, which is 100% true to size. It fits like a glove.
I tried on this dress in every single color but ended up going with Navy. It's perfect for work in the summer, but I can also pull off the Navy during those random warm days in early spring and late fall. It's also perfect for parties and weddings.
Even people who aren't Lilly fans (shame on them!) complimented me on this dress.
I can definitely see myself buying this dress in (at least) one of the other colors!

Rated 3 out of 5 by traci0213 Cute but fit was not quite right for me.
I LOVED this dress when I saw it online and was so excited to see it appear in my local Lilly store that I snatched it up quickly. But when I got it home and tried it on again I was disappointed to see that it was too tight around my rib cage (creating those unsightly creases that show the back of your bra). I think maybe if the color were darker it wouldn't have been as noticeable, but it was pretty apparent with this light blue shade. I ended up returning. I wear a size 2 in the Janice shift when it's the basic cotton material (like in Let's Cha Cha, for example) and it fits me like a glove, but the 2 in this type of thicker fabric is too big and the 0 unfortunately too small. It's a shame; absolutely beautiful dress otherwise!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AlilovesLilly Amazing dress for any occasion
This dress is amazing for any occasion. I've worn it to a gala and to dinner and received so many compliments. It fits true to size, and hugs me in all of the right places. Plus, the blue is a gorgeous color and the gold detailing is elegant but simple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michele218 Love this elegant dress!
I bought the one in navy with the gold trim. It is really beautiful and curves in on the sides making me look so slim! I really love this dress and can pretty much wear it anywhere but I am going to save it for a fancy evening party because I think it gives it a wow factor which is what I am always going for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by katie1370 My new FAVORITE Lilly!
This dress is adorable and an awesome fit. The associate mentioned the new shift dresses were created smaller than they usually were and I found that she was correct and incredibly helpful. I am a 32DD, weigh 109 lbs and am 5'2, the size 0 zipped like a charm and the length is perfect!
