You should never have to settle. That's why we created our exclusive Samba fabric: An all—star blend of eco—friendly fibers that breathes well, has a great drape, good stretch and unparalleled resilience. A slight slub adds texture and dimension, giving it more sway in its step than conventional jersey. Look good, feel good.
Care Instructions: Machine wash cold, tumble dry low. See garment tags for additional details.

Ratings & Reviews
Beautiful dress I couldn't wear
Positives: I love the design and idea behind this dress, especially the keyhole in the front and the fact that the shoulders are clearly on display. It gives a very sexy look. I bought the dress in rhubarb, which is a stunningly gorgeous color and loved the a-line and pockets of this dress. Negatives: The material of the built-in bra was so itchy that I couldn't wait to take it out. Something about that material really irritated my skin, which turned red in the little time I tried it on. Another issue is that the head opening is too narrow, especially if you have a big head like I do. The material there does not stretch, so this was problematic for me as well. When I ordered this dress, I got it in my usual small because I didn't see that Toad and Co added a note that it is best to go up a size in this style. I agree, as the built-on bra flattened my chest and was definitely a little too tight for comfort.
By: Toad & CoDate: 6/13/2018Thank you for the feedback on our Avalon Dress. We have improved the quality of the internal bra for next season and assure you the update will be softer against skin. Sorry to hear you didn't see our note about sizing up for this particular design. We are happy to work with you on a return or exchange if you haven't already done so.
I am a huge fan of summer dresses with built in bras, it is about all I wear in the summer and I probably own about a dozen such dresses from other stores. While I really like the fit and drape of this dress, the stitching on the inside of the bra is so incredibly itchy as to make the dress virtually unwearable. I have also found that the fabric is not as wash and dry as I prefer, the fabric tends to wrinkle and requires ironing none of my other summer dresses require ironing.

If you are looking for a light-weight summer dress that is wrinkle resistant check out our Sunkissed Cutout Dress or the Sunkissed Maxi.
Itch-and-poke fest :(
I really loved the design of this dress, especially the racer-back and high neck with the key-hole front neckline and the cut-away armholes which accentuate the shoulders. That said, the built-in bra is unbearably itchy and pokey. I couldnt wait to get it off. It's a combination of the poly quilted fabric of the bra and the cotton areas around it... the merrow stitching is wide and the thread is incredibly itchy. Also, the flared skirt with the on-seam pockets sits weird on one side giving my hips an odd bump only on my right side in both the colors. I tried to iron it down but that didnt help. So disappointing... I was really hoping this would be a keeper. Toad & Co please redesign for next year! I had to return both the colorways I bought.
I absolutely love this dress. I'm 5'6" and 132 lbs. I bought the medium and it fits beautifully. The keyhole in the neckline gives it so much more polish and I love the Agave Batik print. I noticed T&C said they had improved the comfort of the built-in bra and I can vouch for that - this dress is incredibly comfy but still looks sexy. One of my friends said this dress made me look like I "have a rack." It's my new favorite.
