Amazing bikini/beach cover up
light weight and airy to throw over a bikini on your way to and from the beach. Usually a 6 but I should have sized down to a 4 for this.

I bought this dress with the intentions of using it as a swimsuit cover-up, and it's perfect. I like the quick dry fabric and the loose fit. I've gotten tons of compliments on it! Wish there were more color choices, definitely something brighter.

I loved, love, loved this dress when I tried it on in the store, with my gather and grow black crops. However, when I tried it on again at home without the crops and strutted around in it a bit, my love died. I?m still undecided on it due mostly to the price and the fact that I?ve purchased every Lulu dress this season and to be honest they all look the same.
However, for those of you that like the look of this dress it sizes HUGE. I?m normally an 8 in most Lulu items; I?m a 2 in this a 4 might work, too but they did not have the size.
I?ve read a lot of comments about the armholes and in all honesty I think they look nice, not to big at all but then again I?m flat as a board so this dress basically hangs on me.
Not good on ?fat days? as this dress offers zero stretch.

I wanted to love this but it fit horribly. The armholes were huge, too tight in the hip area, straps too thick. The only upside was the fabric. I like the lightweight swim material. It would he great to have a dress if it fit more like the coastal tanks or singlets.

The coastal tank is my number one favorite top to wear from lulu and the versatility of that tank is great. This dress, however, was a major letdown. The fit is crazy bad but hard to describe. Too much gaping around the front armholes and the top portion is just generally ill-fitting. I normally love the oversized items at lulu because, while I'm fairly petite, I do have a tummy after having four babies. I tried this in both a six and a four and sizing down made no difference, still a strange fit.

I was so excited when this dress came out & scooped it right away online. After trying it on I was so disappointed with the fit. I'm usually a 4/6 but went with the 4 since it said it was a looser fit. The bottom was tight and kept riding up. The worst was the top - it was massive and looked so sloppy. I don't have the largest chest size out there but it was so big and just hung down. Looked awkward. I returned it the next day. I love Lululemon...unfortunately the dress was a disaster & not worth the price tag.

Who is this supposed to fit???
The dress looked cute online, but when I tried it on I was shocked at the fit. The bottom half fits, but rides up when I walk. The top half feels 3 sizes too big. I noticed that when I relaxed and looked in the mirror, the sides of the bib came off my chest and looked like flaps(not to mention that I don't have small breasts). I feel like the front piece of fabric needed 2 more inches so it would sit farther down my back...its almost in my hairline. Its going back. :(

This is an extremely basic and utterly shapeless coverup. You can accomplish the same by wrapping yourself in a beach scarf. I'm taking it back. This is more of a $15 item than $88

I thought this was going to be a great cover-up dress, but unfortunately the fit is all wrong. I'm a cross-fitter so I've got a butt and some thighs... The top was really baggy and the bottom was tight on my hips. BOO! This one is going back.

Extremely baggy in chest area
I received my Coastal Dress in the Pretty Palm Print in the mail yesterday. I normally take a size 10-12 in all lulu tops but sized down to 8 in this from reviews and I am glad that I did. I love the print and the fit from lower chest down but the top is extremely baggy and looks very odd. I am average bust size 36D but this looks very odd as it is nice & slim looking on the lower portion and kind of reminds me of a loose apron on the top. I do like the piece and think it would be a great travel piece, so I am going to take it to a seamstress and see if she can put darts in so it fits better through the chest.
