Rated 5 out of 5 by Princetongal A true 5 star dress!
I've noticed that some reviewers seem to give 5 stars to everything they review. I guess I am a little stingier with my stars, but this dress is absolutely worth 5 stars. I bought it in "Nice Tail" --an absolutely adorable print with an adorable name to match!
The dress is basically a V-neck T shirt dress, but a few things make it special. The fabric is heavier than a T shirt cotton and has a touch of spandex in it which gives it a great, no sag fit. The three gold buttons along one shoulder are also a very nice touch. This is one dress you will not regret buying!

Rated 2 out of 5 by LAG6612 Style is not as pictured, but the print is beautiful.
I gave this dress a two heart review because BEWARE: the dress you will receive if you order it IS NOT LIKE THE ONE PICTURED. Similar, but obviously different in person. So disappointing. The dress I received does not have the structured sleeves pictured - more like a fuller, wider cap sleeve with no definition. Also, the gold buttons do not go all the way down the sleeve, they are all bunched close together right on the top of the shoulder. I gave it two stars because the fabric is nice and thick and the mermaid print is lovely. It's a nice dress...just disappointing when you are expecting something else. I called Lilly customer service and they told me that they knew of the problem (the pictures on the website were taken before they "redesigned" the dress to what it is now) and then offered me free shipping to return. I decided to keep the dress, even though the redesigned sleeves aren't my favorite, because I adore the mermaid print and it will still be an easy dress/cover up to throw on during the hot summer days. For $138 you just think that you would get exactly what you're shown. I'm 5'8" 140lbs and the medium fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jessb130 Bright, fun, and casual.
I've been a Lilly sale/consignment shopper for years--this was the first dress I've ever bought full price because I'm so in love with the print! (Crystal Coast) The colors are bright, vivid, and the print helps hide any body imperfections. I was actually going to buy the Charlene shift, but the boutique owner suggested this one, which was a good call because the material is a little heavy, and I think 3/4 sleeve would have been too much. I'm 5'2 and the dress comes a few inches above my knees, which is good for me, it means I can wear it to the office. I was also hesitant about the sleeves, because the Robyn shift sleeves looked awful on me, but these are sort of between the shift sleeves and cap sleeves.
I'd only gotten as far as my apartment elevator when I received my first compliment. In love.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OleMissGirl alright.
The dress pattern is darling. I bought it in the "Resort White Crystal Coast Mini" and absolutely love the color. It makes me look tan and is pretty flattering. The material is pretty weird to me but it works fine. The dress runs large (I bought a Medium) and is super long. Don't be fooled by the models photo. I am pretty average height and my dress still soooo long I'm going to have to get it hemed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by katelonie Comfy dress love the pattern
I love mermaids so I knew this dress was for me. The material is super soft and a little stretchy. The buttons on the sleeve are a cute touch. My only complaint is that it ran big. I'm usually a 0/XS in Lilly and the XS felt almost a full size too big, I'm hoping to get it tailored for a more fitted look.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NCMom Very cute and comfy
The fit is true to size. The material is just thick enough to hide a few imperfections but not so thick it makes you hot! The button detail dresses this casual dress up just enough to make it a Lilly!

Rated 1 out of 5 by juliagulia not impressed and not as pictured
My dress arrived with NO front pocket, which it clearly has in the picture - also no gold button accent on the shoulder...what a waste of money. Definitely returning and my recommendation is don't buy this dress.
