It is still form fitting in the LG, but not tight.

I appreciate that this simple dress can be dressed up or worn casually.

The medium was very form fitting, and showed every imperfection.

This is my reveiw in July 2012 :I bought this dress for an upcoming trip. I thought it would be very versatile. I really wanted to like this dress, unfortunately it didn't fit me. I'm 5'10' and the waist was too high. Also, from the picture, I thought the dress had a defined waist band with a belt, but it's just a long belt which wraps around a few times. It was well made, and I liked the material, but I'm not convinced its worth the price tag.

This is my Updated Review for March 2013: in July I bought a size M in black, and was disappointed by the fit. After still loving the pictures, the material, and the new spring colors, I decided to give the villa dress another try. I'm so happy I did! I bought this dress for a Hawaii vacation, and it was a big hit. I threw it on the ground, then the next evening, toss it back on, and it looked fresh. Because its wool it stayed smelling fresh even after a few wears in the tropical climate. This dress is very effortless, and I stayed cool, even in hot weather. I plan on getting this dress in other colors, I love it that much. If you want it to fit like it does on the model, I reccomend going up a size. I'm 5'10", and have a 29" waist, and the large was perfect. If you go to icebreakers site and check thir size chart, I should have gotten a medium. The medium was very form fitting, and showed every imperfection. The dress could go a little low for some, but it worked for me; no parts of my bra ever showed unless I bent over. This dress should be a staple in every woman's wardrobe!

Beautiful material, quality construction, cute style - but not for me. The top of the dress draped nicely, but the lack of A-line styling accentuated all my problem areas (I am pear shaped) so wasn't very flattering and made me look out of proportion. Great dress if you are lean and more slim-hipped. For reference, I am usually a size 8/10 - I tried the M and the L and the Large definitely would have been better, but still not a perfect fit.

Until now, I have been used to separating wool from my skin with cotton slips, shirts and leggings. It seemed, as amazingly warm as wool is, that my skin reacted to its touch like a spitting cat, hair raised, back arched, ridiculous, and not to be experienced unless the weather was cold enough for my skin and the wool to make a temporary peace...until the warmth of indoors brought the battle on again.

When I first took this dress out of the package it felt a bit itchy and I could feel the familiar tension between my skin and the wool. But after one days wear, all itchiness had dissipated, and my skin purred , a contented cat being stroked under the chin. Sometimes my skin actually yearns for this fabric. I think of excuses to put it on.

I am 5 4 and 125 pounds and the medium fit perfectly. Snug around the waist when tied, but still loose enough to have a cinched effect. Can be worn for any occasion. I wore it as a beach cover up in the Mediterranean summer, and am now wearing it with leggings and a sweater to work in the brisk fall. I have the black which exudes class and versatility... in my opinion.

I currently have a sweater, the villa skirt, this dress and am lusting after more. I recommend all. The villa skirt I bought in an extra small and fits snugly about the high waist.

The size on this dress is off, and it's only for certain figure types (perfectly proportioned ones with no extras). I was so excited to get this dress for an upcoming trip. In general I love Icebreaker items - they are perfect for: travel, comfy, well-designed, last, wash well, and are high quality. HOWEVER this dress highlighted all my lower body bumps and lumps -- and I think I have a pretty good figure overall (US 10, 6' tall, 150lb). I could wear this with some shapewear, but really, what's the point? That just makes things uncomfortable and I have other black dresses that look better without. I was looking for a great travel dress that I could just throw on and dress up or down. I thought (mistakenly) that the looser top/snugger bottom would re-balance my slightly pear-shape for a more hourglass shape. I was wrong. The L was just too tight. I think an XL would be way too huge on top for me. This fits my teen daughter great!!!!!!! She is a US size 6-8.

I ended up returning this dress because it was too big. I liked how it looked on the models. it looked fitted yet still somewhat modest (at least to me). after reading all the reviews I decided to get a small vs x-small. mainly because a lot of women said it didn't fit curvy women well and most of them sized up when ordering. when I received the small it was so frumpy looking and way too long. I'm 5'2" and weigh 118ish, and consider myself pretty curvy. so all in all the sizing for this dress is pretty true to size. and it's stretchy material so is a little more forgiving. don't order a bigger size, it will make you look frumpy.

I bought this because of its merino wool fabric and its simple design. This dress is great for travels, as it will not stink, breathes and does not need to be ironed. I mix and match this dress with other icebreaker merino base layers and add on a pair of woollen tights and a bright scarf for a dramatic effect. The design has no fuss and thus it works for me as I can dress it up or down according to the occasion. Yes, as per other reviews the hemline is a little short, but as I am also short, it is not too bad for me (I bought an S size, height 5'3", weight 53kg).
