Women's Cotton Voile Shirtdress Cover-up
Fabric is very sheer
I ordered this in white and be warned that it is very sheer. You can't tell that from the picture because the color is just programmed to change on the model. In other words, the model was not photographed actually wearing it in white. The picture shows it as opaque so I was disappointed that it was so sheer. It defeats the purpose of being a coverup, especially when I want to literally cover up and not walk around in my bathing suit. Unfortunately, they are all out of my size in black and that looks pretty sheer also.

Much much too small
I ordered my normal size. It would not even close so I reordered the next size up. It too was much too small. No quality control on this product. Both were returned. Not normal for Land's end products.

Fabulous pool coverup
Purchased this for a trip to Hawaii. Wore it just about every day. Washed well and wrinkles fell out - didn't look pressed, but got lots of compliments on it. I purchased a medium - normally wear anywhere for 10-12 depending on brand. It was very flattering. It is sheer. Purchased in black based on recommendations.

Did not like the fit or fabric
The collar stuck up in a strange way and the fabric looked like it would wrinkle like crazy. More like a shirt than a cover up. Too many buttons to do up as well. Bit small in the top/bust area and the arms too. Prefer my other LE cover-up with some stretch. This goes back.

Bought three. Perfect.
Took on recent Caribbean vacation. Great cover- up, big shirt, or casual jacket. Lived in them. Very light- weight. Perfect for hot weather. Buttons in back tailor the fit

Does the job
Yes, it's sheer, but it's a beach cover up, so no biggie. I have two of these. My only issue would be the cost. A little pricey for what it is.

Perfect, except that it needs ironing...
This cover up is exactly what I wanted: button front, lightweight and cool, above the knee, has sleeves, has pockets, fits perfectly, love the added shape added by the buttons in back. The only reason that I give it 4 boats rather than 5 is that after the first wash, it's limp and wrinkled without ironing. Why couldn't LE add the wrinkle-resistant finish or make it out of some sort of crinkled cotton that doesn't need ironing to look good? I ordered it for a beach vacation, and I'm wondering what it's going to look like after being stuffed in a suitcase or after a couple of days at the beach...

Very close to the perfect beach coverup
I have wanted a button-up, long sleeved, beach cover-up in a reasonable length for years. I don't care for wraps, as I still need a shirt. I don't want a pull over, as then I have to keep up with my hat to pull it over my head. I don't want a step-in, as my feet are always sandy. With the side pockets, this cover-up is almost perfect. The adjusting button on the back add some shape, but not a lot. The light weight material is only moderately concealing, but it is light weight and therefore cool. The black may be more concealing. The fabric does wrinkle after washing, so it's not as crisp as it appears in photos. I really enjoyed having this cover-up on my first beach excursion last weekend.

Very stylish detailing
Just received this in time for a beach getaway vacation. Love the hand of the fabric. Very smooth and soothing I imagine against sun kissed skin. Fit seems to be just right. It is loose enough but I would not want a snug fitting cover up. I ordered it the white. It is very see through so I can imagine also wearing it as a lightweight robe over pajama's in the warm months ahead. I look forward to using this for years as I have with my Lands End swim suits. They are the best! Would have given highest rating but felt the price was a bit high.
