Perfect summer dress
I love this dress - light, has pockets, flattering and true to size. I wear 6-8 in Oiselle tops depending on how fitted the top is, and the 6 fits perfect. I'm 5'11/long legged and I don't find the length to be short.
- more colors!!!
This dress is basically what my dreams are made of, and I couldn't wait to get it. I'm 5'3, 140ish lbs, with most of my weight in my hips/thighs. I tend to get an 8 in Rogas, but the 6 in this dress was perfect. As soon as I got it out of the package, I was filled with glee. The Cinder color was even better in person, and I knew I had just found my perfect every day dress.
Until I put it on. I know everyone loves a dress with pockets, but I feel like I can speak for girls with hips who know pockets in dresses only work with certain styles. This style did NOT work for me. The pockets hit exactly at my widest part and just made me look wider. If this was a $20 dress, I could have probably gotten over it, but I can't spend this much on a dress and know the pockets are unflattering. It was heartbreaking. I've been in mourning for days. If I could buy this dress without the pockets, I would own it in every color ever created from now until eternity.

I disagree about this being way too short. I'm 5' 7" (not TALL, but not short either), and it's just where I like my dresses. I love the material, love the cinder color, and love the cut. I LOVE THE POCKETS. This dress is perfect all around for me. I got my normal size and it fits great!

Way too short for tall ladies!
I love the feel of this dress, but I am 5'9" and it is way too short me. There's no way I would feel comfortable/appropriate wearing this out - even in the most casual of situations - without leggings underneath. I wish the Oiselle dresses came in lengths!
- Way too short

Your go-to summer dress!
I love the feel of the roga fabric so I'm very glad I got the dress. It's comfortable in warm temps and breathes well. It's a flattering design and I receive compliments every time I wear it. People can't believe its a dress from a running company! I'm 5'5, 120 and a size 4 fits well. I have it in blaze and was surprised it is a little bit see through. Easy enough to fix wish flesh tone undies (or your blaze rogas!)
- breathable, comfortable, very flattering, pockets
- a little see through

I have never received more compliments from a dress I own. Collar & neckline is flattering - pockets are practical - pattern is dynamic - but, best of all, the fabric is unbelievable (stretchy - dries fast - washes well - does not fade or pill). I am 5'5 + 130 lbs and I got a 6 - fits well -wouldn't want it any bigger or smaller.
Pockets might bug some women with a 'hippier' figure. I work in retail and hear some women complain about the placement of pockets as being unflattering. We do not sell this dress but can hear some complaining. HOWEVER - do not hesitate to try this before deciding against it for the pocket placement.
Everyone I work with jumped on your site to try to buy it but few sizes/color options available. I look forward to next year's selection
- see review
- it does run short so I wear compression shorts with it instead of plain underwear.
Please oh please make this in a tall length
I love the style of this dress. I'm 5'6" and long waisted, and this hits mid thigh.. it's too short. What i wouldn't give for a version that was 2-3 inches longer soI could wear it.
- Everything but the length

Best dress EVER
I have never in my life received more compliments on an article of clothing. Tried it on in black, but upon the salesperson’s advice, left the store with blaze, which is striking. What’s more, this dress is super comfy, travels like a dream and makes me feel like i look like a million bucks — even if I am sweaty and gross post-workout. Love the collar, the material and perhaps most of all, the pockets. PLEASE make this in a new color every year!
Strangers Covet My Dress
Make more Oiselle! A winner. I can’t wear this without hearing “where’d You get that?!?!” Re: length. I’m torn. If it were longer, I’d wear around town. But since it isn’t, it is perfect for athletics. (I’m 140 5’6” pear-shaped, bought the 8.) I wear a pair of tight shorts underneath.

Love so much I bought two!
I seriously LOVE this dress!
I am a "bigger" runner- often a 14 in jeans (10 or 12 in capris/tights dependent on brand).
This dress is SO cute stand alone out and about on a sunny day- or it is SUPER cute over jeans with cute flats or sneakers. I find myself packing this (I have the black and the blaze) for work trips- they never wrinkle- and they are so light they feel great to move around in.
All in all.. I would buy this again and again and again :)
- Flattering, pockets, can wear any season
- If anything, wish it were just a hair longer
Love this dress!
I'm always on the hunt for work-appropriate dresses that don't wrinkle, and this one absolutely fits the bill. (And it air dries quickly, which makes it a good candidate for travel!) I love that I can wear it by itself, or with black leggings or skinny jeans on colder days. The black diamond pattern is fun and interesting without being too loud.
I'm 5'2", so the length wasn't an issue for me.
Roga material in a dress almost feels like wearing nothing at all! I absolutely love this dress.
I've worn it as is with a sweater or added a belt to add a little shape.
This piece is great because I love getting to sneak some Oiselle into my everyday wear at work and this one I can wear pretty loud and proud.
- Love the feel of the roga material in general. I also love that its just a bit longer in the back so I'm never worried about it riding up if I bend down.
- Maybe 1 inch longer and I would never be self conscious wearing it to work regularly. I'm 5'4 and it hits about an inch below mid thigh. Not a concern at all for everyday wear, but we are pretty conservative about dress length were I work.
