Very happy I splurged
I have other Patagonia items of similar/same fabric and they have held up very well. After dozens of washings, they're still vibrant in color, without any thinning or fraying. I expect this dress will be no different. As for fit, it is snug. I thought it would be (because of my other items) so I ordered a size up. It fits beautifully and is very flattering despite my not-so-perfect shape. This dress tosses on easily, without any twisting or tangling or trying to figure out how to get my arms through what space. It is super comfortable. And because it is made from organic cotton, it is guilt-free. Excellent price for a beautiful garment.

Sexy summer dress
This dress is sexy, flattering, comfortable, and overall great value. The simple design, tie-back detail, and beautiful drape is suitable for the beach, museums, and dinners out. Although it says "slim fit", the cut is great for women with curvy hips. I'm 5'3"/130 lbs/34B and a medium fits perfectly. The short length is great for petite women. No problems with sufficient coverage on top (which others have noted). In addition, the h[alt-er ]straps prevent/conceal unsightly bulges near armpits. I ordered two and couldn't be happier with them.

I like the built in bra--lower cut, so would be difficult to hide bra straps. I purchased black--can be very casual or dressy depending on what shoes/jewelry you wear with it. I am usually a small in patagonia, and the small worked, so true to size.

Awesome summer dress
This dress is awesome. I already got multiple compliments for it. This is the perfect dress to throw on after swimming or surfing. Of course you can wear it to dinner too. It packs very small and light. The fabric is smooth and very comfortable to wear. A true Patagonia product.
