Icebreaker Women's Allure Dress
You can "dress" this dress up or down
Not only is this dress cute, it is comfy. You can wear it to work, out for a lunch, a happy hour or even a night out. The neckline is comfy and flattering. I can wear this dress to work (I'm a teacher) and I can wear it out - exactly what I was looking for. I also like that you can use the belt in a few different ways or not use it at all depending on your needs. I got caught in a rainstorm and was a wee bit wet going into my happy hour meet up,but in no time I was dry!

Great dress for any occassion
I initially ordered this dress in both a medium and large. I'm 5'6" &160# (athletic, 36D and a shapely bottom). The medium (jet heather/black) fits perfectly. I ended up returning the large (blue).
This dress is great for work, travel and play. The 200gm merino jersey is the perfect weight. I have the Villa dress too and the 150gm weight (I've realized after cutting the tags and wearing it out) is too thin/sheer to wear without tights. Going forward, I'll look for Icebreaker dresses that are at least 200gm.

I have the blue version of this dress. I'm not a big fan of belts around my waist so I was really pleased to discover how nicely fitted this dress is even without the belt. The top is slightly loose (mostly because I'm rather flat chested) but becomes fitted skimming my hips nicely.

All Time Favorite Dress
This is my "go-to" dress...professional (goes to court), comfy (out with friends), travel (stuffed in panniers)...it is the best.

Love this dress!
I think the obi belt is my favorite part of this dress. But it's all-weather-ness is perfect too for this long, never ending winter. The wool regulates temperature perfectly and it's cute with tights and boots or ballet flats. It is true to size and a flattering fit.

Allure Dress--Great All Around
I have three dresses in this style and they are great for work (a professional business environment) and great for travel (lightweight, yet pack well with minimal wrinkles). I have several other styles of Icebreaker dresses, all of which I enjoy, but I like this one the best! The fabric is of a very nice weight (not too light, but such that it drapes very nicely) and the color trim is lovely.

I'm 172 cm tall, 65 kg, bust 102 cm, waist 82 cm, hips 102 - falling between M and L, with chest well within L size according to size chart. So I ordered L, as advised. While with underwear and base layers L works fine, in dress it doesn't - it's so huge and baggy on me ! I will exchange for M hoping it fits better. I ordered also Iris dress - same problem. Of the two, Allure is much dressier. Quality is superior. Belt is separate - you can't really see that on the pic.

Great everyday and travle dress
I've had my dress for a couple weeks now and have worn it several times. It's fantastic, it fits well, isn't too long or short (falls just a bit before my knee), and is very comfortable. I wore it for a weekend trip and felt just as comfortable wearing it to a nice brunch as I did wearing through the park.
If you're new to Icebreaker clothing they're sizing is a little different, I'm most often a small in mall stores but am a medium with Icebreaker, but their great shipping and return policy made it easy for me to find my size.
