I wanted to like this dress...
I really wanted to like this dress, but it simply was not flattering and probably runs a size larger than marked. I wasn't willing to re-order a size down in the hope that it would be more flattering.
On the plus side, the fabric is nice and more substantial than the average cotton jersey maxi. It's also a nice maxi length for someone of average height (5'5"), which can be a real challenge.
The blue is just a hint off navy (just a hint of teal), but the stripes are bone, not pure white and not tan.

Not So Flattering
This dress is nice for someone with a short torso, thinner waist . Fits me more like a women's petite, and I am a regular. I have a medium-sized abdomen and I don't think it flatters my abdomen. BUT I got it on sale, so I am keeping it. I need dresses for my lifestyle, and there aren't a whole lot of them. And since I sew, maybe I can adjust the torso length somehow, or wear a very wide belt. Also the color is sort of a faded blue, but that is not a problem for me. I think it will be cool in hot climates since it is lighter weight fabric, so that is a plus.

I bought this dress online. I have ordered the smallest size, but I was quite disappointed. It's VERY BIG in the waist. It hangs on me like a sack, not flattering at all. The sizes should reflect differences in the garment. If it is your smallest size the waist shouldn't be as big as maybe the bigger sizes, it should be more tailored. Unless you're very big around your middle don't buy this dress. The material is nice though. The picture on the site is misleading, it shows a much more tailored dress that what it is in reality.
