Ratings & Reviews
I LOVE THIS DRESS!
It fits so nicely, washes like a dream. Bought it in black... am buying more colours! Fit is generous.
I found this dress to run big. I'm a size 6 (140lbs) but I usually run between a small and a medium when it comes to dresses. I got this in a small and it's actually a tiny bit big. I also found it to be a bit long. I'm 5'6 and it falls right above the knee. I will be getting it hemmed for a younger look. I'm hoping that if I shrink it in the wash and hem it a few inches the fit will be more flattering. The fabric is good quality and it seems like it will be a good travel item."
Love the dress, watch for shrinkage!
I love this dress, in fact, I am buying another one. However, one thing to keep in mind is that it will shrink. I've had this issue with Toad and Co and Patagonia dresses - looks and fits great, but, most probably due to some Tencel content, after the first ride in the dryer it is suddenly half a size smaller. I will be buying it in M this time to adjust for the drying shrinkage. If you are one of the OCD suffering, detail oriented Wonderwomen who actually read and follow the care instructions, my kudos to you, go ahead and wash it cold and hang to dry. For the rest of us, just buy it a size larger and enjoy the easy care of normal wash and dry. Another thing, the dress is rather hot for a really hot summer day. I live in Maine, so extra insulation is welcome even at the height of the summer, but Tencel (35%) won't let you breath as well as 100% cotton. Otherwise, a great buy!
Good if you're younger and not curvy
This dress is cute, the fabric fun, the colors beautiful, but at 61 it was too tight for my frame, too revealing around the armholes. The Muse Dress fit me much better.
I wear it backwards :)
I must be tired because I tried this on at REI and again at home, BACKWARDS. When I put it a 3rd time, i realized I had been wearing it backwards. Pro tip, for a slightly more conservative look (boat neck cut), wear it backwards! I wore it to a job interview with flats and a funky blazer, then hopped on my bike home. Love it.
cute, but runs big
Cute dress, but I agree with others who say it runs large. Unfortunately, it didnt shrink in the wash. The armholes and waist are too big on me. And i always order an xl from Toad & Co.
Really, really cute dress
I love this dress. The style, length, and color are so cute. I purchased the green color. The only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars was because it does stretch out a little in the seat when wearing, but not enough that I would return it. If the fabric holds up and doesn't pill, I will be one happy camper!
I just got the Samba Wave Dress, and it looks great! Very comfortable and, as others have mentioned, it hides imperfections. I'm 5'6 and 130 lbs.
This dress rocks!
This is my go-to dress for just about everything. I wear it with flip flops, flats, and heels. It works as well as a swimsuit coverup as it does as a little cocktail dress. It packs like a dream and can be washed in the sink and hung up to dry. I've even hiked in it. I just purchased another one in the same color (black) to have as a backup in case for some reason they stop making it!
Most flattering and functional summer dress I've ever worn.
Last summer I bought 1 dress in Black.......After 2 days of comfort and endless compliments, I went back and purchased 2 MORE....2015 Season......a medium shade of Teal Blue and Coral. The ONLY reason that I haven't purchased more this Summer of 2016, is that I didn't care for the colors. I plan to purchase another Black next Summer and hopefully other colors. Wishing for a Turquoise and perhaps a Spring Green (though, not neon !).
Review of Steph's 'backwards' review
I give this review 5 stars because it's hilarious. I have the dress too though and give it a 5 star rating as well. It's super cute & versatile, as Steph has proven. I'm not much of a trendsetter though, I've only worn mine frontwards.
By: Toad & CoDate: 7/28/2017We definitely give Steph props for rocking it backwards (wish we had thought of that) and are glad that the Samba Wave dress has gained your stamp of approval. Thanks for the review!
Perfect Summer Vacation Dress

Samba Wave Dress
By: Parvati Grais
I love this dress. I have it in two colors. ONLY problem is that, for the 2nd time, I mistakenly through it in the dryer. It shrunk many inches. It's great now for a tunic but I also want the dress. Need to order it again!
By: Toad & CoWe are sorry to hear about your laundry mis-hap, but thank you for the reminder to follow the care instructions!
