I bought this dress a month ago. I am 5’4″ & 185lbs. I absolutely love it and have worn it at least 6 times already.
Tees under, tunics over, sweaters over, footless tights and leggings under it. With heels, sneakers and booties. Jackets, blazers, cardigans.
I’ll be wearing it tomorrow for a family Christmas gathering.
It drapes beautifully. Just enough weight so it doesn’t get hung up or cling to any of my lovely lady lumps.
I can grab it from the bottom of my “can wear again” pile and throw it on and it looks fab.
Under $100 is a bonus!”

The Core Travel Basic Everything Dress…is aptly named. I ordered several from this website and some from another supplier. I have been wearing an Eileen Fisher dress in a look alike (similar) style, that is over twice as expensive, for several years now. I use this dress for the foundation of everything I wear…like jeans only more comfortable and versatile. I will be ordering and wearing this dress from Habitat as long as you make it. Thanks so much! Please don’t ever stop making this dress!!!

    Awesome dress. Follow suggestion to size down. I’m a 6 and went xs and it’s perfect. I turned dress inside out and ironed the seems flat as the hip area pooched out a bit. Fixed it!!! Great price great dress. Cant wait to wear it!!!

    I bought this dress for a trip to Mexico in February and a trip we’re taking in August to Europe. I’ve worn it several times mixing up the look. So versatile and washed like a dream. I just ordered the navy in the shorter length. Two amazing staples for my closet – thank you!!!
