How well this item performed in its intended use, and beyond.
I now have two better butter dresses, both in black. One is for beating around anytime and all the time, the other is being preserved for the more special occasions. One could not ask for a better neckline. It protects from the sun but is not clinging and hot. Dress can be worn in a multitude of climates. It protects from the sun on a warmer day, but also insulates well under any thickness of outerwear for the cooler days. The neckline can be easily manuevered to cover or expose and scarves wrap easily around it. You can dress up or down depending on shoes and accessories. This is the most comfortable dress you'll ever put on and will be the one you reach for time and time again. It does not wrinkle and is my travel "uniform". Mountain Hardwear, will you please make this dress again, but in some more neutral colors like dark brown, charcoal, navy, and olive? I would buy them in every color!
