Salutation To Savasana Dress
So Comfortable but a little loose!
I bought this dress on a whim, I wasn't sure about how it would look on me but I love it! I'm 5'7" and the dress hits me mid thigh. I have a long torso, and somewhat long legs so it will probably hit closer to the knee on most people. It's very comfortable and breathes beautifully. I am usually a size 6, but sized down to a 4 for this dress, it can look really baggy through the body if you go with your traditional size.
*I also was told in store that people had been tying a hair tie around the back part from the shoulders to the middle of the back to make it look like a racerback. I thought about it for a while when I got home and didn't want any kind of tie to be showing, I tried a safety pin, and ultimately went with a clear pony tail (like you use for a toddlers hair), I cut the little hair elastic and tied it around the dress. I've washed it 3 times with the elastic on and it has yet to come off!

This dress is so comfy and flattering. I did size down and it's perfect! I wear this at least 2x a week.

I tried this dress on on a whim. It looked so plain online and in store but fit great!! Perfect length and looseness and LOVE the back. Don't be fooled by the photos, it is an awesome dress and more flattering than it looks on the hanger. I did size down though.

Overpriced for a sun dress
I am torn on this dress- love the color, the fit of the front, how light and airy it is as well as the length. What I don't like is the price and the cape in the back. It should've been shaped better. It doesn't do anything to shape a woman's figure. I'd be tempted to buy it if it goes on sale only because I'd pay to have it tailored

Love this dress. I went down a size...I usually wear a size 6 in crops and tops but got a size 4, and I'm 5'2" and it is not too long on me. When you have the right size, I think this dress is so flattering and pretty. I wore it all day and want to wear it again all day tomorrow. It does show your sports bra, but with a cute color lululemon bra, it is a nice different sporty look. I would buy more if they had more colors. I bought the dark grey color and love it!

fits really big
I'm normally a size 8-10 in clothes and size 10 was swimming on me. I ordered another in size 8, and it fits better, but still seems big. I hope to stop in a store to see if there's a smaller size from that. It's a good summery dress!

I couldn't really tell by the pictures how large the armholes were cut. I guess you're supposed to wear it over a yoga or sports bra, but even so it was just a weird dress. I ordered a size 4 and was TTS. I liked the fabric, but the overall design was well, plain boring. Did I mention the weird armholes?

Long enough for tall girls!
As a 5'11" Mom of two, I am always very hesitant to buy dresses online from Lulu. Saw this this one & thought why not give it a try. It is the absolutely perfect length for my liking! Although it's rather shapeless & really leaves my figure to the imagination, I don't mind that (especially on chunky days). The only drawback in my mind, are the arm holes becoming a scoop back, forcing me to wear a sports bra, when I'd much rather be able to wear a bra.

Like the rest of the reviews I was not completely sold on this dress at first, walked by it several times in the store until I finally tried it on. Normally, I'm a size 8 in most Lulu items, 5'5, 124. This was HUGE, I felt like I was wearing a garage bag/Bat cape, because of the way it dropped in the back. I requested a 2 from the sales person and she said it did not come in a 2, it did. I tried it on, perfect!
I have not taken the tags off as of yet and I'm still waffling on it. 88$ is a steep price tag but it is different and very comfortable on. Not sure how this will hold up in the wind but I liked the idea of crops under the dress for that extra bit of coverage.

I was excited to try this dress on at the store once I saw it online. I am usually between a 4 and a 6 in lululemon depending on the fit. I tried on the 4 and it was still too big, unflattering, and really didn't do anything for my body. For reference I am 32C, 125lbs, 32/26/36.5. $88 is way to much to pay for this, as it is nothing special. You could find a beach cover up at Target or Walmart that would look the same on you for $15. Needless to say I didn't purchase it because I felt like I was wearing a garbage bag. The back of the dress makes you look larger than you actually are since it is not form fitting and just hangs from your shoulders.
