We added a new, lighter-weight fabric that wicks moisture, yet offers the same flattering fit, day-to-night versatility and gentle stretch as its predecessor. Features an empire waist and short sleeves. Supplex® nylon/spandex. Machine wash. Imported; fabric made in USA.

"Disappointing - I love having a basic black dress, especially for travel. However, this one was a disappointment in several ways. The fit was too tight across the midriff -- not a great look for plus size. After a few wearings, the neckline would not lie flat. It was sagI would not recommend this product."

"Versatile & Comfortable - Love this style of dress. Great for all seasons: alone for warm weather or with layers for cooler climates. Packs well and air dries without wrinkles.Wish there were more colors available in plus sizes. Own both black and red and would love even more.- I recommend this product."

"Nicely made but cut way too small for plus - I've always like clothes I've purchased from TravelSmith. Unfortunately this dress, although nicely made, is a very bad style for a plus-sized person. I ordered my normal size, 2X. The dress was a nice stretchy material but made me look like a sausage inI would not recommend this product."

"Cant live without this. - I am a late 50 something traveler and I hate my bare arms showing. I just bought 2 more of these. I work in India and as the temperature goes up, I am always wearing one. They dry a little too slowly, but the fabric isn't that see through mesh. Wish you h- I recommend this product."

"Wear Anywhere Dress - Very nice dress that's suitable for any occasion. For me I found it ran a little small. I usually wear XL in Travel Smith designs, but had to return it. Upon reading reviews I settled for a 2X, but probably could have worn a 1X. I wore the dress with a lo- I recommend this product."

"Had an odd smell - I really liked the fit and feeling of this dress, but it had a very odd smell, like oil or kerosene. I tried washing it (and it washed and dried very well) but the odor clung. I don't know if it was the result of the fabric manufacture or something the drI would not recommend this product."

"Flattering fit - This purchase was to replace the same dress I've had for years. It's my "go to" dress for traveling as it is comfortable, wrinkle free and no zippers for ease of airport security.- I recommend this product."

"Deep Red color is not deep red - I bought this dress in black and loved it so much I decided to get another one in deep red. However, the color of deep red is not deep red, it is a warm cherry red. I decided to keep the dress because that's the only other color offered in the plus sizes,- I recommend this product."

"Easy care comfortable dress - This dress turned out to be perfect for traveling. It is not as heavy and clingy as the Tres Elegant Travel Dress. The fabric is lighter and more to my liking. I washed it on the delicate cycle and in cold water and it turned out beautifully. It takes up- I recommend this product."
