GORGEOUS

This dress is so very flattering. The fabric is very light and stretchy, and just a bit clingy, but in a good way. Thankfully, the pocket on one side and the gathered draw cord on the other balance out any clinginess. Fun alone or belted. I love the bind one on! Toss on a cardigan when the temps drop.

Pros:
great fit, great fabric
I would recommend this to a friend!
Cute but didn't work for me

"This dress felt like the right size (size S, I am 5'4"" ,125) but it still didn't work for me somehow. It looked cute from the front, but the fabric tended to pucker or ripple across my lower back, no matter how I adjusted the drawstring and ruching. So back it went."

Pros:
cute ruching
Cons:
fabric puckered in the wrong place

Easy to wear and look great!

This is my husband's favorite dress - it drapes in all the right places, and is so nice and soft as well. I love it for the comfort and that it shows off my curves without spanx quite nicely! But why does it only come in black and two rather unusual colors? Would love to see it in olive, burgundy, indigo, plum, etc......(hint hint!)

Pros:
fit, style, flattering
Cons:
only 3 colors to choose from!
I would recommend this to a friend!

versatile, travel friendly, wrinkle resistant

I have bought several dresses from horney toad and this one is just as nice as the others. Very comfortable and the material is so soft. Its longer than most other dresses but not too long. Love the color. The cut is simple but hangs real nice on the body.

Cute, simple summer dress

"Dress fabric is not very soft at first arrival, slightly stiff. Fit is basic, shape is more boxy than photo shows. I got a small and it fits loose on the larger side of a small, hoping it shrinks a little when washing, it does not pull in at the waist so will need a belt to look more fitted. My worry with long dresses is they sometimes have a 'homeschooler' look. The synch cord helps with the cute factor eliminating the homely appearance.So cute, comfortable dress for warmer weather, looks good with bare legs or leggings and still work appropriate. Ankle boots or slip ons look great.Wish it was snugger at the waist and softer with more bounce so the fabric hung nicer to make it slightly more flattering."

Pros:
cute, classic, comfortable
Cons:
boxy

This dress is just AWESOME! It's so simple, so cute, light weight but not to light, great fabric, cute details. This is that fave. toss on and go! So easy to dress up with a little cardigan, long or short, or straight to the beach or picnic. I'm begging for more colors and more stock!!!! PLEASE DON'T DISCONTINUE THIS DRESS.How about pale plum, dusty orange, red, dusty blue . . . Please!!! I'm 5-4, 108 lbs. 32C, bought the small, if that helps anyone else out there.

Pros:
easy to wear, dresses up or down, cute details, great fabric, great length, light weight but not to light
Cons:
not enough colore to choose from, not enough in stock

It's the most comfortable dress- I just took one on a weekend trip and plan to take 2 colors with me to Italy. It washes up well and can be casual or dressy by changing shoes and adding scarves. I'm a 10-12 and ordered a large.

I can't say enough about this dress. It wears and washes well. I have gotten several complements on it and it is very comfortable. The size is just right not too loose and not too small.

Unfortunate Sizing
August 19, 2013
Asthmagirl
Location: Seattle Age 45-54 Gender: female
I bought the dress on sale and ordered the same size I always wear in HT. I was so looking forward to wearing this dress as it says it looks good on every woman. Unfortunately, the cut of the dress is so tight that it does not look good on me at all. I didn't send it back because I've been losing a little weight. Maybe by next year it won't look so tight. I just can't understand the difference in sizes between this dress and the other 3 HT dresses I own. Very disappointed.

Pros:
love the cut, love the color
Cons:
far too tight
I would not recommend this to a friend.
Flattering cut and SUPER comfortable

"This dress is my new ""go-to"". It is so comfortable and flattering (even on those not-so-flattering days). I get a great deal of compliments on it and people are always wanting to know where I got it. ""HORNY TOAD"" is the reply. I may have to get another!"

Pros:
comfortable, flattering, light weight

Comfy and can go to work

Bikethere
Location: Atlanta GA Age 35-44 Gender: female
Great fabric, fun print and good lines, even for a less-than-curvy girl. The neckline could be a bit more structured, but the supple fabric is likely the culprit there, and I wouldn't trade that for anything.

I would recommend this to a friend!
Comfy as always, wished for a little more detail/colors
May 6, 2012
HornyWHAT

"Comfy as always from Horny Toad (love it when my friends' eyes bug out when I tell them the brand name, ""Horny WHAT?""). Wish the neckline had had a little more detailing, like V-necks better, and some more color choices. Definitely has more appeal when side is gathered up, and even pulled up a little bit is still modest enough to wear to work. One good side about the top being a little bland I suppose is that I can dress it up with accessories easily."

I would recommend this to a friend!
comfy and cute!

"It is very easy to move in this dress and also very flattering. The only thing I'm hoping doesn't happen is ""butt sag."" I notice that if I sit and once I get up, the dress doesn't exactly reshape itself to my body. I adjust it, and so far so good, I am just hoping that it holds up!"

Love the casual but sexy style. Great for travel. I've also worn it with a lace top over it to make it more professional looking for work. The fabric could be thicker. Would like to see more colors.

Pros:

fabric is thin

"I love this dress! I hate to give details to my size but I find them helpful. I am 5'8"" about 157 athletic build and bought the Medium. This dress is so perfect in every way! You can tie the side up as much as you would like to shorten it or keep it a bit longer. The material is great, I have the black. I wore this dress twice now and both times had people stop me and ask what the brand is and where I got it! Way to go HornyToad!!"

Really nice dress

Wenwen
Location: Fairbanks AK Age 45-54 Gender: female
"This dress is soft and comfy but the real genius is the drawstring feature which allows you to add small soft folds to your mid section and backside to shape, flatter and hide. The overall effect is not baggy, it's sleek and shapely without being too revealing. I am 5'6"", 125 lbs and I got the small."

Pros:
great neckline really nice fabric.
Cons:
i hope the fabric is tough i'm wearing it a lot.

I LOVE this dress! I'm in between a size M and a size L in Horny Toad clothing, so I bought a L. Out of the package it was a bit too big, but when I washed and dried it, it shrunk slightly. Now it fits perfectly -- I mean perfectly. Like I had it tailored to fit. I'm very happy with my new dress. Thanks, Horny Toad!

Location: The beautiful Midwest Age 35-44 Gender: female
I could live in this dress! It goes with everything, fits like a dream and the fabric is extremely comfortable. It feels like my favorite T-shirt that has been washed to soft, smooth perfection. The cut is flattering, stylish and slinky, yet drapes and flows so smoothly you barely know you are wearing a dress at all. I am definitely getting this in black, too!

Pros:
flattering fit, soft comfortable fabric
Cons:
wish this dress came in more colors

"Taking this product out of the box my first thought was that it looked like a hospital gown. I was extremely pleased I tried it on because it changed the whole look of the dress. Being 5'2"" this dress is the perfect length without being too short even with the side cinched up. It is light weight but still keeps you comfortable if it happens to be a breezy day. I am overall pretty ecstatic about this dress and plan to put it to good use both indoors and outdoors."

I absolutely love this dress! It's very flattering without being too clingy or too loose fitting. The optional rouching detail on the side was a surprising design detail, offering different ways of wearing one piece. When rouched, it gives the hemline a fun, asymmetrical look. The dolphin color is very pretty -- kind of a blue-grey. I loved it so much I ordered it in black too!

Pros:
comfy, stylsh, flattering
