I have not tried on or worn the dress yet. I did notice that it is of a lighter material than the striated black, blue and green dresses. The dress is pretty. It looks almost too nice to ride a bike in.
I've grown to like this dress more and more. It's cute but also practical. I do sometimes manage to catch it on the back of the saddle--but I probably need to button up the side ties more often. I'll probably keep wearing it year round, with another layer on top. I especially like wearing it when I plan to make a few stops--it's very "presentable." I got the polka dot pattern on sale but it's great. Might've been my first choice regardless. It does hug my middle a bit. It's really hard for me to find thinks that fit top and bottom, since my bust is proportionately smaller than my hips, but this dress strikes a good balance and still looks pretty good.
Love the dress! I wear it almost daily for doggy walking and around town. The pocket in the back holds phone, credit card, and key. Perfect fit for busty, athletic, active 72 year old!
Hopefully you have a new design for spring 2021!
Mary Active Sports Dress, Black Polka Dots
There are no buttons on the outside for the straps.
I love this dress! The picture doesn’t do it justice. In fact I took a gamble on it because the picture wasn’t very appealing. When I took it out the package it was love on sight! Unlike the other dresses I’ve purchased from Tonik this one is lighter weight. It falls nicely on my body and has enough colors that no matter what color tights you were they’ll match.
Had a week of 70 degree weather in November in Michigan, so was able to wear this dress for cycling a few times. I loved it! Looks so much better than a jersey and shorts. Felt comfortable enough to go in store afterwards.
Vibrant colours, shapely (and bra-friendly) cut, and beautifully made.
Saw this dress in the sale items, and liked it for the versatility (and the blue flower print!). It fits well- I'm 5'4", 125 lbs, and don't like clothes too tight. I ordered a medium and am happy with it. Hem hits right above knees. However, a size small probably would have fit fine, but I like a looser fit. I liked it so much I ordered another one in a different color. Easy to ride it. I wore bike shorts underneath, and used the side tabs to hitch-up the sides while riding. This will be a great addition to my bike touring wardrobe- great for riding, and easily transitions to off the bike. I did wash it, and hung to dry. Dried quickly, no wrinkles. Very pleased with this purchase.
The fit for my curvy figure is awesome .
I will be buying more !!!
Great quality, I’m very happy
This dress beautifully fulfilled my need for a cycling outfit that was functional and made me look good. I wanted something for last weekend in San Diego and the dress came on time. Plus, while pedaling 24 miles in the heat, it kept me cool and looking good post-ride. At first I thought the fabric may be too heavy, but it’s not. The wicking is great and I was comfortable the whole time. I feel this dress will look good no matter what your size. I need a large and regular jerseys just look terrible. I’m 65 and struggling with weight, but forgot about in in my new Melanie dress. Exercising to feel good and looking good are wonderful feelings. If you get it, you’ll be happy too. I love it and may need to get something similar with sleeves since it’s finally cooling down. The quality is excellent.
Melanie Active Sleeveless Sports Dress in Lime
did not have a chance to wear it outside yet, however it seems like a great durable material and a beautiful color. Looks like I will get to use it a lot . Recommend it to any future buyer.
This is so comfortable. At first I was worried about the heaviness of it, but it is not hot to wear. It hangs well and hides imperfections in the body. I have gotten many compliments on it.
