In The Flow Dress
Go-to dress for summer
Love, love, love this dress! It has been a staple in my summer wardrobe. I've worn it as a cover up for the pool, running errands around town, and it dresses up beautifully with a statement necklace for a night out. I have the dark grey, and am hoping to see this return in more colors. I'm 5'3, 108 lbs and the 6 fits perfectly.

Upgrade to the It's A Cinch Dress
My old It's A Cinch Dress is looking shabby these days, and I got this to replace it because the length and ruching on the sides are similar. However, unlike the IACD, the ruching here is not adjustable but the length is longer.
I'm 6'1 and 150 lbs, and got this in my usual size 6 and it fits great. The photos on the website aren't the most flattering, but this worked really well for my (very) tall hourglass body type; the ruching covers any jiggly bits, but the fabric is still thin enough to layer with. But at my height, it'll always be paired with running tights or crops, as it's still too short to wear as a dress alone, because it rides up. I wore this on a 10k today, and it didn't ride up too much, but had I not been wearing Run Inspire Crops underneath, errybody would've seen my butt.
The fabric is very wicking, and feels technical and breathable, much more so than some of the other lulu dresses. I really like wearing a short dress with running tights, for a little bit of coverage over the bum, so I hope lulu comes out with more like these!

no. just no.
I have been on the hunt for a dark casual dress to travel with and when I saw the In the Flow dress, I thought - "Perfect!"
I ordered size 6 - my standard size in all Lululemon (5'4" 125 lbs, big bust, muscular) and when it came last night I tried it on. The skirt portion was cute, but the top was very baggy in front and too big in the arms. In the heathered black, it looked flat and like a potato sack.
It had pretty much no redeeming value. Returning today.

Awesome casual sporty flattering dress
This fits so well that my husband is making me get it in the charcoal gray. I have the light silver gray. It is true to size and finally short enough. Unlike another reviewer, I actually liked how it rides up a little due to my short 5' 4" frame. I just have to be careful with the light gray and sweating - it does show sweat marks underneath the arms.

Love this dress
This dress does not look great on the hanger, but it is a whole different story when you put it on! It is fitted but does flow and skim the body in a flattering way. It doesn't come in a size 2 (my TTS, 5'3" 103 lbs.), but the 4 works (although the arm holes are a bit large on me). The fabric is so light and airy and it's perfect for the summer. I hope it will come in more colors!

When this dress popped up on my instagram feed, I fell in love. I went to the store the next day to try it on and was certain that since I have had two kids and my tummy isn't what it used to be, it wouldn't be flattering on me. When I put the dress on, I was pleasantly surprised. I purchased my normal size 6 in the dark grey. It's perfect, flattering and looks great on its own, over a swimsuit and with a scarf and some jewelry. Please make this in long sleeve for the fall!
Also, I was shopping with my two little girls in the Huntington, NY store and the staff was super sweet to my kids. Thank you for helping make it a fun shopping experience for all three of us!

I wish it were v neck dress
When I first put it on, I love how it feels and the back looks great. The front just doesn't look flattering no matter how much I love everything else--I'll be too conscious of my tummy even though I don't have one. I agree with the other review about the gap in the arm hole that will be too much if you get one size up to hide any bump. I wish it were in v neck then it might have minimized all this other imperfection. Too sad it did not work as I love it so much!

great for summer
I ordered this dress online when it first came out. It is great for summer and looks super cute with a scarf or a denim jacket. I was really worried about it being too see-through and too tight but it really is a perfect fit and very flattering.
I shouldn't have washed this and put it in the dryer- after I did, I noticed that the dress shrank a bit in length- sometimes I feel like it's a little too short but that's just personal preference.
I am 5'11- 130 lbs and usually wear a 6 or a 4 in all things lulu- I ordered a 6 and it fit great.
I wish they made a version of this that is long sleeved!

So sad that this did not work
I wanted this dress for the light airy feel. I wanted something easy and comfortable to wear for the hot summer days. I am 5'2", 110 lbs, and carry most of my weight in the middle and thighs. The dress fit nicely in the middle, helping to hide any sign of a tummy. It was a little too tight along the backside, and for modesty purposes, I didn't see myself feeling comfortable considering how tight it was along the back. But that is a matter of personal preference.
The main problems with the dress: 1) Too transparent. You would need some sort of slip underneath. 2) The arm holes come much too low, making it impossible to wear a slip underneath. I tried the dress on with a nude slip and you could see a good two inches of the slip at the armhole. So that means that you would also be able to see the sides of your bra.
This was a no-go for me, too bad.

you Have to TRY it!
Just to be honest, I did not think much of it pictured or on the hanger. However, it is slammin' on! -and beyond comfortable. One small issue, it likes the inch its way up as you walk. TTS, I wear a 4 in bras, tops and pants (occasionally a 2 pants). Try It!!
