Looking for stylish, packable, versatile clothes, I learned about this dress on a travel blog and bought it in black for a 20 day cruise/Europe trip in the spring. This dress/skirt combo is the best purchase I've made in a long time -- it's perfect!
I'm 5' 5" and the length, even when worn as a dress, was still appropriate for a woman my age, as it's below knee length, just as in the photo. As a 36D, 135 lb. I was worried about the top but size M was the right fit. The fabric is a good weight, not too thin nor too thick, perfect for spring, summer, or early fall.
Because of my age, I wouldn't normally wear a tube dress, but this one is so versatile and can even be styled modestly: On the cruise, I wore it as a cocktail dress-length formal with a glittery wrap -- the perfect, packable LBD. You can also make a colorblock dress by wearing the tube dress over a bright knit top. Note: this is shown elsewhere on the Hanes website or I wouldn't have realized you could wear it like this. You can wear the dress with a light cardi, shrug or jacket over it. None of my friends realized it was the same dress, repurposed.
As a skirt, the top can be folded down different ways; for example, an empire-waist look or fold down to look like a cumberbund. Depending on your top, the skirt can look dressy or casual.
Packable and easily washable in the sink. I hope Hanes makes this same style skirt/dress for a long time. I love it and highly recommend it.

I just received mines TODAY!! I love it already & the fit is great! I am a size 14 and ordered the medium. I was a little afraid that the fit would be too small because I also have a curvy shape but it fits perfectly. Now I can wear it to the Grocery store... The hardware store...movie night...girls night out...
