When I saw this linen sleeveless dress on the Everlane site, I already kind of knew it wouldn't work for me. But something about the blue stripes and how it just screamed "summer" when it was still below 60 degrees here in SJ drew me in. It was a dress that I wanted to like. Well, as suspected it doesn't really work for me. And I'm not the only one who thought so. 90% of you guys said to send it back in my Insta-story poll. One person even said the dress reminded her of a hospital gown lol.
As for me, I don't mind the blue stripes, but I think the A-line shape and the weird below-the-knee-but-not-quite-midi length is not doing my 5'4" frame any favors. Also I know I said I would swear off sleeveless dresses in a past Everlane review and these pictures just reaffirm that to me (ie disliking my triceps right now). In general this dress feels very blah to me though I would say it's better than Everlane's shirtdress I reviewed 2 years ago (which looked like an old-fashioned men's nightie on me).
As for sizing, I got this in my usual Everlane size 4 and I know it was the right fit because the chest and shoulder area fit perfectly. But the rest of the dress sort of balloons out. Also this light colored dress was a tad sheer and you could see the outline of my white undies through this dress. So all in all this dress is a no-go for me. TBH it doesn't even look that great on the tall and skinny Everlane model so I'm not sure who it would look good on. I wouldn't be surprised to see this end up in Everlane's 'Choose What You Pay' sale some time this year.
