Love this dress!! Well worth the price! I love the easy summer style of maxi dresses, but I'm 5'1", so they're very difficult for me to find. The small fit perfectly - with flat sandals! It's also very soft and comfortable fabric.

This is the third color I have ordered in this dress! Love it! Casual but can be dressed up. The black, blue, and coral are all the same material w a little more stretch than some of the other colors and are more faltering. I'm 5'6" and about 135/140pnds and the small fits great.

I like this dress. It is perfect to throw on when you don't know what else to wear. I am 5'3", 100 lbs and ordered the XS. If it were any shorter though, it wouldn't fit. My only complaint is that it is cinched in the back and on the sides and not in the front so it lays flat on my stomach so it doesn't hide much in the mid-section. I wish it were cinched the whole way around.

Cute and stylish sweatpants. I really like them. My only comment is that they are really sweatpants, pretty thick and warm. That will be great in the winter, but if you are looking for a casual summer pant these might be a little thick.

I bought this dress in a different color last summer and liked it so much I bought it in navy. It's very light and soft, but also thin. Be careful if you're looking at a light color as it will be see through. I like the length, and that you can cut the hem if you want to shorten. It's a summer staple!

Stylish skirt made of very soft and lightweight material. (I recommend wearing a slip to help it lay flat and not bunch up when you walk.) I'm 5'3" so the sides almost hit my ankles. I had the sides shortened; now, it looks great with black leggings and sandals or my Converse Chucks. Other stores had this skirt cheaper but I wanted it fast with easy return options that only Zappos provides.

This is great to wear under more sheer dresses, and it's lighter than a traditional slip so it's great for summer time!

Printed Double Dare Maxi Skirt

Reviewer: Laurel from New Orleans

This skirt is true to size in my regular Medium. I am 5' 4" and it just almost grazes the top of my bare feet, the perfect length for me. (Note: I am high waisted/long legged.) The fabric feels and looks like a very soft, stretchy, cotton knit. I was surprised that it is 57% polyester (ew) but it does not have that cheap-type of feel or look. I have machine washed and dried (medium heat) this skirt three times and it still looks new. The hem is unfinished and has a tiny roll that is not noticeable unless you are looking for it, but I still consider this a casual skirt. It is neither form fitting nor full, and has an easy drape. (I avoid fuller skirts which make my hips look big.) The Navy Blue color has a subtle, purple hue as shown in the photo, but the polka dots are not so 'screaming white' as shown...they are white, but subdued within the knit. The pattern/conservative color is surprisingly versatile; I have worn it with solid whites, but also with a pink & white pinstripe rayon blouse, and a white cami with an open blue/purple pattern blouse. Great skirt!

I absolutely love this dress. I am 5'4 and 146 pounds and a medium was too big on me. I kept it because I like it so much. Not only that but Zappos rocks for its speedy delivery. I love you Zappos!

This dress was way too big for me. I usually wear a size x small in dresses and shirts. So I got an x small & it fits like a medium, almost a large. The dress has so much potential to be flattering & adorable but it runs way too big. I paid quite a bit for it too, which sucks.

This dress runs very small. I'm 5'7 around 115 pounds - size 2 in dresses. I ordered the xs and small and they were too tight. I went with the medium- which was still a little tight around the waist/hip area. Awesome dress for the 4th of July!

Lightweight, neutral color, toss in my bag and go! I love this so much I bought two! One stays in my bag as the go to "emergency need arms covered in the chilly AC" type summer wear and the other is used as a walk out the door looking fresh outfit complement. I wish they were made in many colors as it's the perfect weight for lightweight coverage. I am tall with long arms and long waisted and it's perfect for me!

Loved the idea of this romper. I'm only 5ft3 and this was definitely meant for a taller leaner person. The crotch was too low for me and the legs while cut slim couldn't accommodate my athletic calves as there was no stretch in the material. Too bad, I really liked it...just not on me.

This sweatshirt didn't really work for me. I ordered the XL and probably should have ordered a Large. It was soft but I suspect it will pill the first time I wore it. Overall the cut was cute and it had potential. I decided to return it an keep looking.

Love the style and color; however, I wish I had noticed it was backless when ordering. This is such a pretty dress and extremely comfortable. Oh, and thank you Zappos for delivering all 5 dresses in less than 24 Hours! (Yeah, I love little touches like this.) I probably would have ordered even if I noticed it backless. But I specifically ordered this because it had more coverage and could be worn more places than the racer back style. Alternative Earth please consider making this dress without it being backless. I will order in every color.

I love this dress, (except for the backless part I hadn't noticed that when ordering, my bad.) I chose this dress for the classic style and coverage , I had ordered the same dress in racer back so I so purchased this style with the thinking with the extra coverage it could be worn more places so I was incredibly disappointed to see it was backless when it arrived I ordered every dress even similar to this style and in every color. It is extremely comfortable and stylish ,, I just wish that darn back was solid ..can you tell the backless part is bothering me?? :).. all in all it is a beautiful comfortable dress ..but Alternative Earth would you please consider carrying this dress in this style without it being backless? I will order in ever color. :)

Love, love, love this dress. It is the perfect style, fit, and weight. I saw others mention it being too see thru, I am critical of material too thin but I didn't find this to be the case at all. I actually purchased every color of dress in!

Love this dress! I was a little skeptical about paying this much for such a thin piece of fabric, but after wearing it, I've deemed the purchase worth it. The style is flattering, as the ruching bunches right around the tummy and can be adjusted to fall in different ways. Very comfortable fabric. Worked well with a strapless but a racerback could likely work, too. I'm 5'6", 132 lbs, and large busted (like, 32H/I) and the medium worked very well for me. I could wear flats without worrying about tripping over the dress. Maybe a little on the loose side but I presume it'll tighten up after I wash it. Not to mention I don't think it's supposed to be tight. I have not washed it yet so cannot comment, unfortunately, on washability or shrinkage.

I loved the top but it's cut so low that none of my racerback bras would fit under it without showing everywhere, the armpits, the back, the straps...So bummed as it was very cute, nice and long and longer in the back. I got the zinnia print but had to send it back and wanted the camo one too!

I got this skirt and love it. It can be dressed down with flip flops or dressed up with heals. Add a black cami and it can work for a night on the town as a close sister to the LBD (aka Little Black Dress). Good for travel, as it an be tossed in a suitcase without loosing shape or wrinkling too much. Only issue the elastic band and tailoring around the waist is a bit flimsy and tends to roll. But it's still a great buy.

I love this skirt. Right length (I am 5'6"), soft stretchy fabric that's lightweight, beautiful summer color, with a comfortable waistband. Wear it with a blue cap-sleeve T I bought from here (also by Alternative Apparel) and a white tank. Have not washed it yet...but may hand wash it just to be sure the size stays the same. I did wear a slip under it, but not sure if I had to. I feel so ladylike in a long sweeping skirt!
