I bought 4 of these sundresses - I wear a size Medium, and these dresses have been a lifesaver during this hot hot summer. I tried to remember what I used to wear in the hot summertime, and I thought "Sundress! and sandals..." so I ordered 1 of these dresses to see if it fit and if it washed washed well without shrinkage (it passed with flying colors), bought some flip flops in bright colors - and after my shower every morning, I put on sunscreen, one of these dresses, and my flips and I'm good to go. And go I do, with a sunhat and tote I'm out and set for the day.

The dress did not shrink: I washed it gentle, cool, and dried it on delicate for 10 minutes, and hung to dry the rest of the way. I might run a quick iron over the skirt, although it's not badly wrinkled at all. If you like crisp pressed clothing, you'll want to iron this; it's optional in my opinion, depending on where I was going to wear it.

Anyhow, don't miss this dress! the price, quality, and the sheer fun of wearing something cool and comfortable even in 103 degree weather - - it's all good with this dress. Buy one or more, I'm back here to write this review, and to pick up two more. They're *that* great!

Having lost 65 pounds, I was in the market for a new wardrobe. National is definitely has my favorite clothing.

This dress, however, was not for me. The armholes and yoke feel somewhat tight. The extra fabric and stitching in the yoke prevents it from "giving". I bought this sleeveless dress for really hot days but it's not cool. Needs ironing, too.

I've only worn this dress once; now it hangs in my closet. I believe it was the most expensive casual dress that I bought and I know it is the least worn.

    We have very hot weather in the Central Valley of California. I wanted a cool casual dress to change into in the evenings after work, but I have to iron it every time I take it out of the dryer because it is so wrinkled. It isn't exactly easy care.

        This is a cute patio dress; the top part is quite fitted while below the breast the dress is breezy and roomy. I made a cute beach minidress after hemming off 13 inches of the length to make a really cute beach cover up.

              I use these to sleep in and they are very comfortable. I was finally able to find fabric that was not flimsy and see through. I am 60 years old AND NOBODY WANTS TO SEE THAT.

              Very disappointed. While this looked like a cute pool/patio dress. It shrank at the first washing. Even though I was careful to wash it with cold water only. It is impossible to get the wrinkles out and you can see through it. I want and need something for our hot California days and not something that requires a slip.

                      It really looks nice but it comes out of the dryer so wrinkled and it is hard to iron. I am 85 and I don't like to iron. I also bought a dress made out of the same fabric and sent it back just because I don't like to iron. Too bad, it was a nice dress also.

                        Great to find an all-cotton sleeveless "muu-muu" type dress. Not easy to find. Great for doing housework during warm weather. This is the 3rd I've gotten from National.

                            These patio dresses are great when the temps are over 90 degrees...cool, light and easily washed, again and again. I got one in each color. They all look excellent.

                              These are very comfortable dresses. In this hot weather, it's so nice to have a dress that is loose, colorful and easy to take care of, i.e. laundry. I am very thankful to my sister who made me order 3 more. Please continue to carry this dress in the future.

                                        I wear my three dresses around the house and to events like picnics. Machine washing them and then using my solar clothes dryer (clothes line) leaves them with very few wrinkles and ready to wear when dry. These will get lots of use in the New Mexico heat.
