  • Description

    Named after the norm-breaking dancer, Isadora Duncan, this dress evokes the spirit of movement and flow. It hangs on the body with tons of room to move and breathe. The shoulders tie, meaning you can adjust the look tons of different ways. Tie it up snug for a cropped length and high neck. Tie it loose and low for a relaxed feel. Keep the tie ends at your shoulder for a jaunty, warm look. Tie the knot towards the back for a sleek and minimal feel - the options go on and on. It's also reversible - wear the v-neck or crew neck in the front or back! Bonus - layer over a thin tee or light sweater and wear as a jumper!

    This fluid, midi-length dress is perfect for summer days. The deep cut arms, low v-cut neckline, and playful ties that dance around the shoulders are romance embodied.

    The Isadora comes in other fabrics, and there's a jumpsuit version! Check them all out here.

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Midweight Linen

    Fiber Content: 100% Linen

    Description: Medium weight, sturdy broadcloth linen that can be pressed to a neat, crisp finish or left wrinkled after washing for a perfectly lived-in look. Linen possesses natural strength and durability, and it's a super friendly fiber on the environment. It requires very little processing and is virtually lint-free, hypoallergenic, comfortable in all seasons, insulating, and absorbent.

    Care: Machine washable. Wash on gentle cycle with cold water. Tumble dry warm. Leave unpressed for a beautifully rumpled look (as pictured here), or press on medium heat with steam to remove wrinkles.

    *Linen is a natural fiber and will fade and wear over time, which we love. If you prefer your garments to not show as much wear, hand wash, and do not tumble dry.

What summer dress dreams are made of!

I ordered this dress in Ivory to wear on my honeymoon at a tropical resort and unsurprisingly I ended up living in it for most of the holiday! It was the perfect piece to throw over a swimsuit or just for lounging around, and looked chic and relaxed paired with a matching Greta belt for the evenings. It's the best dress for those super hot days and I'll look forward to wearing it again when summer comes around!

The ivory linen is slightly see-through but nude underwear works fine with it in my experience, and I found that the dress was true to size according to the ES measurements chart. I tend to wear OSM/6/S/M in ES and the Isadora in S fits great.

There was a small issue with my original order but ES's wonderful customer service went above and beyond to make sure that my dress arrived in time for my holiday. Thanks so much!

Beautifully constructed but not flattering for petites

I looked like I was wearing a curtain. I think you need to be taller or curvier to pull this style off.

Love it!

I am very petite and the Isadora is just perfect. I could even have gone with an extra small.

Intriguing stunner

The fabric hangs beautifully! I enjoy the ties except I am nit sure how I will handle the very deep v neck. I must wear a bra and am of an age where they are not to be shown

always too low...

so sad that everything from ES seems to be too low cut. EVEN with the adjustable ties, i've tied them as high as they can go and it's still too revealing for my taste. Sadly, this has kept me from wearing it more than once or twice since purchased. Extra sad because i paid a pretty penny for it too :( i love the concept of ES i just wish things could be tweaked just a tad for petite, busty people like me.

We're sorry to hear that this piece hasn't worked out as well as you hoped, but we appreciate your feedback! We typically recommend wearing the Isadora styles with the V in the back or with another top layered underneath if it feels too low! We also understand that it's not right for everyone! That said, we want you to love every ES garment in your closet. If you'd like to set up an exchange, our Customer Relations Team would love to help! Send us an email at, and we'll get everything set up. :)

Wanted to like, but the fit was off.

I really wanted to love this dress, but the fit was really off at the top. If I tied the straps higher, it looked odd and if I tied them lower, it was for a much larger bust. I'd a 38D, so not sure what was happening there.

Thanks for sharing this feedback, Yevgeniya! We're sorry the fit of this dress wasn't quite right. The Polly or Petra Midi might work better since each of those styles has bust darts to give more shape! Our Customer Relations Team is also available to answer any questions or give advice on other styles. Just send a quick email to, and we'll take care of you. :)
