Love this dress. Simple, can be dressed up or down depending on what shoes. I wore it on a Caribbean vacation. It packs great, no wrinkles. I am small chested and it is flattering. The fabric is soft.

I love this dress! As a woman who loves to travel, I find it hard to find travel gear that suits my curves. I'm 5'10", 185 and a 34D. The large is perfect. The fabric and fit are very forgiving of flaws. The Zappos photos don't show this dress also converts to a skirt, which makes this perfect to pack for travel.

Love this dress, the fabric is not too thin and it's a great length. I'm in my 60s and want a nice beachy summery dress, this one fit the bill. Of the 4 dresses I ordered this is the only one I'm keeping!

I love this dress! I ordered the black and am ordering the turquoise right now! I crossed the ties at my neck instead of pulling them straight back as shown on the model. I also had to hem the dress about three inches since it was really long, too long for summer.

I really like this dress. The top is fitted and it's all a great material. I wish it came in more colors, though. Also, I think you could fold over the top a little bit to make it more beachy and a tad shorter (it's a tiny bit long on me), then wrap the ties around the waist. I'll have to play with it a bit, but overall I'm satisfied!

Love this dress! Its made of a great material. You can wear it as a skirt or a dress. The top is very tight around the chest, feels kind of like a sports bra, but I don't mind. Looking forward to wearing this dress a lot this summer!

I love this dress! I ordered a small. I'm small on top and a size 8 on the bottom, size 6 on a good day. I'm a 36B and the top is very fitted but I think that's how it's supposed to be. Id rather have it tighter so i dont have to keep pulling it up. The rest flows nicely. It's very comfortable and I'm very happy with the purchase!

I couldn't get this to fit right. It is a really cute dress and the fabric is good quality. Unfortunately, given my relatively wide ribcage, I couldn't find a size that would fit around my chest but not be too bulky and voluminous in the skirt.

It is a super cute dress for the right girl. I'm small on top and the dress obscured my waist making me look like a stick. Probably better on a curvier girl

I really liked this dress, but returned it as I liked the Patagonia Morning Glory better and did not need more than one black adventure/travel dress. I do think the thickness of the cotton like fabric of the Prana Solana dress is more forgiving for a woman looking to hide her stomach area, rather than the more spandex-like material of the Morning Glory dress. I would definitely recommend it.

Super cute! It doesn't fit though so I am returning it. I got a Medium but it doesn't fit up top. I am a 36D.I struggle with sizes all the time. I am a medium waist so am usually a medium but some things I have to go with a large.

The intended style of this dress is adorable but the fit makes it unwearable. I am small chested and the top fit so tight around the bosom that it was uncomfortable. I also have fairly small hips and a thin waist and the bottom of this dress is huge. I loved the potential of this dress so much that I considered ordering a few sizes up and having the bottom taken in, but I don't think the shape of the dress would have looked right. I had to return it.

I REALLY wanted this to work for my body type because it is really well made and stylish. Alas, ladies, if you have any chest size above a C (I am a D) and are not one to flaunt it, this design is not for you. The keyhole in the cleavage area leaves nothing to the imagination, and there is just no way I found to position either the dress or 'you' that would downplay the cleavage. I specifically bought this style convertible dress because of its bust that goes straight across vs. what I would describe as the usual Grecian-style that is the norm for convertible dresses. Those styles essentially make any woman with a chest bigger than a C look as if she has utters vs. breasts since they wrap around the chest vs. across. Don't believe me - check out the some of the other convertible dresses available here. (Zappos, do not censor me for using 'cleavage' or 'breast' as I can tell you this a helpful review to many women.)

I am so disappointed to have to send this back. The fit was strange. I am not large busted but the small that I order could barely accommodate my 34B chest. In fact, my chest was smashed to the point of very uncomfortable. The bottom, on the other hand, had far too much fabric. The bottom of my body was lost in the dress. The neckline is beautiful and great quality fabric. It would be a great travel dress if the fit was right. FYI, I am 5'6" 125 lbs.
