Women's Leisure Life Thermal Knit Dress
Soft, comfortable, long-lasting
In 1995 I bought two colors of a similar dress made out of the same fabric of which this dress is made. I wore them until they began to fade and then began wearing them as house dresses. I'm wearing one now! So when I saw this dress I had to try it and once again purchased it in two colors. I love them both! They are soft, comfortable, and will definitely last just as long as the previous two. They are so very warm and cozy on winter days and can be dressed up easily with scarves and jewelry. Buy this dress (buy two!), you won't regret it!

Although the sizing was smaller on this than previous ones I have ordered, I really like it. Sewing quality is less than to be desired, but I love the color and length.

Love this dress!
I have ordered this dress before, in other colors and it always wears nice, drapes nice and is so easy to wear. Looks great, soft and is comfortable. I would definitely recommend this dress and it is a great length.

Lots of reasons to love this dress
I have this dress in burgundy. It washes well, is totally comfortable,looks good , is warm , and helps you feel a little dressed up without being too formal. You can also accessorize it quite easily. I only wish it also came in a forest green as well !

Thermal dress is flattering no matter what your size.
I was ever so glad to find that you still carry this dress because I'd purchased a size medium in a lighter shade of blue several years ago and it became my go to dress for many reasons: length, fabric, style (accessorizes easily for casual days or a bit dressier evenings) and the shade of blue matched my eyes. Of course, this darker navy blue certainly doesn't match my eyes, but still it is a good basic color with which to wear with more than a few accessories. I was disappointed that the dress no longer fit me because unfortunately I'd gained quite a few pounds. Thus, I ordered the navy dress in an XL which is the size most of my clothes now are; however, as much as I dislike exchanging items, I was rather pleased that the XL hung on me like a sack and I had to return it for a large! Thank you very much for making me feel good as well as look good.

As comfy as your favorite sweats!
Have you ever wished for a dress that was as comfy to slip into and wear as your favorite sweatshirt & sweatpants? Well, look no further! This dress is it!
I am definitely a comfort-driven person when it comes to clothes. If it's not comfy, I grumble about having to wear it. But this dress is as relaxing to wear as a dress can be. In addition, it can be easily dressed up or down to fit the occasion. Add a pretty silk scarf and gold scarf clip, and you're ready for a dressier event. Just going to a PTA meeting? Wear "as is" or with a simple necklace and you're not "over-dressed" for the event.
I also despise pantyhose so I really like the longer length of this dress. I am 5'3" and the dress is long and full-skirted enough that I can wear knee-length trouser socks instead of pantyhose, and even when sitting, the tops of the socks don't show. A pair of stylish boots would look great with this dress too.
The dress is a relaxed fit and I think the sizing is right-on, so order your usual size. I have not washed them yet but there is enough roominess that if they shrink slightly they will still be fine. The sleeves are a little long on me but that is normal for me; full-length sleeves are almost always too long on me.
The fabric is a medium, not heavy, weight so it is not too warm for fall and spring wear. Since I am hot natured, I prefer this lighter medium weight to a heavier weighted fabric. If the weather is very cold or if you are cold natured, a pretty blazer or sweater would look very nice over this dress and add the extra warmth. But in my opinion, the medium weight adds to the dress's versatility.
My only complaint is that this dress needs to be offered in more colors. I purchased both the blue and the burgundy, and wish that it were also available in a pretty dark forest green #NOT olive# and in black. I would buy them both as well if they were available, the dress is that comfy and versatile.
Also, on my computer monitor the burgundy dress looked redder than it actually is and I almost didn't order it because I don't generally wear red. But the dress actually is a very pretty deep burgundy color which I far prefer. The blue dress also had a purplish cast on my computer monitor but is actually just a nice dark blue, no purple tones to it at all.
I think most people will be very happy with this dress.

Warm and comfortable
In this very cold winter, this dress is perfect around the house. It's long for a shorty like me, 5 ft. 1 inch, but I washed it and it is just above ankle-length, just right for my use. The color is a soft navy blue, the fabric has a rich look, and the velour trim is a very nice touch.

Love the Comfort
This dress, which I ordered in a 2X, fits perfectly and is as comfortable as a nightgown. It's a nice dark blue, good length and it has pockets which are a must have for me. I wish it came in more colors.
