Rated 5 out of 5Â by Ggirl Love this dress, but...
I love this dress! It's cool and comfortable, and it washes up great. Did not shrink. But it is long, and it has a lot of fabric from the waist down. It's loose and doesn't fit close to the waist. It is definitely not a curvy-huggy dress, but it does flatter!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Bree Dresses up summer
So enjoy having a classic dress to perk up a summer day. Have enjoyed Lanz products for years. Love the length, the contrasting trim and it even has pockets! The only things that would be nice: a choice of sleeve length that is slightly longer, and an accessory belt. The ties in the back don't measure up style wise. However those preferences do not overshadow its real appeal. Perfect dress for everything--an evening theater or lunch and shopping.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Doggie Mom nice frock
I bought this dress for travel. It is roomy and comfortable. Had a similar dress like this years ago but in a different material. I brought the tie around and tied it in front for a more fitted look. It doesn't look like an old maternity frock.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mchakotayparis Lanz Bon Voyage Dress
I bought this for my birthday and when I finally got to wear it I got compliments all day long on how pretty I looked. The dress is a little long for me (I'm a very short 5"4") but it's just fine with heels. Thank you for making such a wonderful dress and making me feel pretty again.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Country Granny Perfect "FOR EVERY OCCASION" Dress!
I have wanted this Navy Dress since first starting to shop at VCS. I have bought, I believe, 12 Dresses in 2015 and Loved the all. I now wear dresses again and Love the beautiful and comfortable cotton materials used in your clothing. I finally had an opportunity to order this Chambray Dress in Navy and so happy. I have been wearing it's twin in the lighter blue and Love it also, but not as much as this one. Thanks VCS!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by DSR Lots of compliments
I ordered this dress as I just loved the design, gross grain ribbon accents and everything. I'm 5/6" around 160lbs and when I look in the mirror, it looks like it makes my waistline look bigger, BUT boy do I get compliments. So, I wear and enjoy. The fabric is so soft, washes beautifully and needs only light touch up with the iron. If I had to complain about anything, it would be the sleeves. They could be longer and finished better. The fabric is just turned under...less than 1/4 inch. If they would have edged with the same white ribbon and made the sleeves a couple inches longer, it would have been perfect. I purchased a white shrug which compliments the dress perfectly though. Love it, with some reservations.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by MissEllen Great Quality but not Flattering
Bought the lighter blue and liked the quality of the workmanship. The dress has a nice neckline and the banding along the hem and neck is a nice touch. I bought a large for my bust area which fit perfectly there (not tight but not too loose). However, with my size 12 hourglass figure the waist/hip area is designed with too many pleats and poofed out so much I looked very heavy in the dress. I was disappointed because I really wanted to like it. The dress has so much potential but not designed well. I had to return it.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Manhattan Mommie If you're the right body type
I loved Lanz as a teenager, but now find most of the designs either too young or frumpy. BUT the Bon Voyage dress seemed to be an appropriate design for a youthful 50-something--and it is. Simple and feminine. Light-weight fabric that still seems substantial. Beautiful. But not for me. The dirndl skirt is quite full and long--way too much for my 4'11" frame. I was overwhelmed by the volume. Could I have hemmed the skirt? Sure, but I thought doing so would ruin the graceful sweep. I was so sad to return the dress.
