about our color - garment dyeGarment Dye is the process that makes Fresh Produce clothing look and feel sun washed and beach worn. We sew up the style and then dip it in Fresh Produce Color. The process requires heat so all of our garment dyed clothing is pre-shrunk, soft, and fabulous! (This is also why size specifications can be slightly different.) We love how garment dye brings out the individual personality of each garment -- just like our customers, no two are exactly alike! Color variances and/or fading are normal.
wash & care - keep your colors brightAt Fresh Produce we're all about keeping it easy. Unless otherwise noted in the description, all of our product can be machine washed in cold and tumble dried on low. Avoid using detergent bleaches, stain removers, or fabric softeners. For stains we recommend using a mild dish washing detergent (Hint! DAWN) directly on stains, let sit for 15-30 minutes, then wash as usual.
fabrication specificsFor more information about the specific fabrics we use, or other terms on our site, please reference our FP Glossary
Our styles fit just like our attitude -- relaxed and carefree. Did we mention we hate fuss? Throw-on-and-go pieces are casual, easy-to-pair and designed to have you out the door in no time. Our clothes are crafted with a relaxed fit in quality fabrics meant to flatter and move, never to cling or restrict. The unique garment dye process gives each style it's own character-- always pre-shrunk, soft and vibrant, ready to be worn again and again.

- Cute and Comfortable Dress! -Melissa
- I bought this dress in XS in gray and love it! Love the ruffle on the hemline! Comfortable and easy to wash.
- Comfy and flirty -Macuqui
- I love this dress. Bought it in pink and have gotten a lot of compliments on it.
- Perfect summer dress -Nicole
- This dress is lightweight, and super comfortable. I wear a 16/18 and got the XL which fits perfectly, it is very flattering and doesn't cling. Love it!
- My All-Time Fav Dress !! -Pamela
I just recently lost a lot of weight and therefore I needed a lot of new clothes! This was always my fav dress no matter what size I am.
You can dress it up or down. Lots of accessories and great fancy shoes and you can go out at night in it. I have always purchased this dress in Black.
You cannot go wrong with this one. It is very flattering.
I LOVE Fresh Produce.
- cute dress, but it didn't work for me. -Yvette
- Let me preface my review by saying that I sometimes have problems guessing what size to order in FP. I have pants, skirts and cardis in medium that fit very well. However, I don't care to wear my dresses too close to the body, so I ordered this in an extra large like I do most of my FP dresses. Well, I estimated wrong and had to send it back. This style shouldn't be too loose because it loses the baby doll look and just looks sloppy. Since I have to do all my shopping online, I couldn't just go to a FP store to exchange the dress for a smaller size. I don't want to bother ordering both a medium and a large to see which would look better, so decided just to return it. .
- love this dress -Joni
- waiting for it in prints and plus sizes. I have 3 from previous years and these are my go to, feeling good in the spring, summer & fall attire. Also hope they put pockets in this time around. Most ladies like pockets.
- One of My Favorites! -Julie
- I've loved Fresh Produce for years and this dress is a shining example why! I purchased it in black and loved it so much I came back for three more (truffle, peri & south beach blue). I will say it runs on the larger side so it is safe to size down. I wish I would have done that as two of the four colors are now sold out however, the simple shrug works well and hides the excess fabric. Either way, this dress is a keeper! Please keep it coming in more colors!
- Too bulky -jh
- Thought it looked really cute in pic but material is bulky and it just looks stiff. Ordered a medium as I am 143 and 5'11" but it was too big! A softer, stretcher material would be really nice.
- Favorite Dress -Montchanin
- This is my favorite FP dress. As with others, I own probably 10 of them some in solids and some in prints. Just now I was checking the website to see if there are any new colors or prints for the coming summer.
- Fabulous! -mrslssfan
- This is a great dress. I am now on my third one. Nice cotton that holds its shape. Fits great and true to size. It's perfect for summer. Casual but great for a bbq, shopping day or just running errands. Looks cute with flip flops, dressy flat sandals or wedges.
- Love it! -Cher
- This is my 2nd purchase of this dress style. It is extremely comfortable and really versatile. I can go from the beach to the mall and always feel pretty.
- Five stars need another! -Cat
- I bought this dress in aqua and I love it. I have bought your dresses in stores over the years and I love them. So it occurred to me I cold order online. This dress was one of three items I ordered and my favorite. So, I wanted to order another but you have only white left. I am considering ordering it and then tie dying it but I really want a black dress... Or maybe coral... Or maybe I really need both:-)
- I love it. -Mitch
- I am traveling to France to babysit a granddaughter and wanted a cool and comfortable dress to wear in the city as they don't wear shorts or jeans there too much in the heat. This is perfect !!!
- fresh summer look -Lori
- This is my first purchase of the Sunshine dress. I live it . Great color, cool and comfortable. I will reorder in different colors that can be worn through fall. There is onky one issue with the dresses from Fresh Produce. Sizing. Being a regular customer, it is sometimes tricky to get the right size. In other clothing i wear a womens 18-20 depending on style. I do not like clinging around the middle so an xxl fit really well since the bottom skirt is loose. With other FP dresses I sometimes need a plus size 2Xif the cut is straight or fitted.
- LOVE this dress -noozlady
I have two of these dresses, one in the shells print,and one in sayulita. I've worn them to death every summer and they still look great. They wash and dry perfectly and are so comfortable for hot weather. One of my all-time favorite FP dresses.
- Love this easy dress -Patty
- Very cute, fits well and comfortable. Will buy again when more colors in my size become available.
- disappointed -m mark
- The quality of the sunshine dress is quite disappointing. The stretch cotton material is inferior to other dresses i have purchased from fresh produce. Please go back to a higher standard of cotton
- Sunshine dress is wonderful -longwood29
- I have 9 sunshine dresses. You can dress them up to go out on the town. You can wear them for work or just for that lazy day around the house. You always look great in this dress. You need one in every color.
- the must-have dress to last and last -Sarah
- The Sunshine Dress is aptly named—it adds sunshine even on rainy days! The scoop-neck is just-right without scooping too low, the empire waist flattering, and the ruffles on the hem feminine. The 100% cotton material is thick without being too heavy for even the hottest days and it’s super comfortable! I have this dress in multiple colors to carry me through the seasons! On cooler days, it can even be worn with leggings, boots and a jacket. If you’re looking for a go-to dress, you’ve found it!
- Sewn badly...quality control ! -Marty
I ordered this dress last minute for a specific event...hence, I threw it on and wore it...it was the PERFECT color...the cosmos is a HOT PINK,
not a fushia, which is exactly what I wanted. And it was comfortable. The problem was when I looked in the mirror, the gathering in the front was not at all centered! It was all crooked and off to one side! And one sleeve was sewn funny, so it keeps rolling up and won't hang right. I honestly felt like it must be made overseas...and was shocked to see it was MADE IN USA! I am going to have to have the front torn out and fixed, or try and do myself. Having worn it, I can't return. Either way, I am out money I should not have to spend.
Fresh Produce: this dress should have been discarded as retail and sent to a discount store. You need to up your quality control!
- excellent -Cocky
- Need XS in this dress and am disappointed that you do not offer my size in this style. I would order all colors if you did!
- MY FAVORITE DRESS -Beach Grammy
- Thanks FP for this adorable dress.I have 8 of them right now and I just ordered 2 more today.It is the best dress that you have ever made and believe me I have tons of them.Keep on adding adorable colors in small and I will continue to buy them.Please don't ever discontinue this style.It would be cute in a tank style as well.
- Love mine for entertaining, dining out, shopping, and traveling -Susie
We travel to warm weather destinations often and I never forget to take them. I have the tortoise shell, black, and will receive tropical punch today. To travel, I roll them up and they don't need ironing.
I love the ruffles and the weight of the cotton fabric. I don't dry them fully, I hang them up. I hope Fresh Produce will keep this style for a long time and offer other smart, feminine styles in the future. I also choose these because they are A-line for larger hips, The quality and style brings me back to Fresh Produce--and I do spread the word.
- Love This Dress -Awesome Grandma
- Bought this dress while on vacation in Hilton Head. I just love it!! It is perfect for just casual, or you can dress it up with some nice jewelry or even a scarf. I plan to order it in different colors. It is a great dress for a very active Grandma to look great in. Thanks Fresh Produce!!
- Exactly whay I wanted -Carol
- I LOVE this dress! Perfect for a warm summer day. The ruffles make this one unique. I, too, read the reviews and went larger. Very narrow cut on top yet proportioned perfectly!
- Great fit! -Mary
- I purchased two of these dresses for an upcoming cruise with the intention of using them for beach cover-ups. They are adorable! Great fit . . . love the fabric . . . ordered a third. Extremely versatile . . . great for the beach, but dressy enough to wear shopping or lunch.
- My Favorite Dress -Beach Mommy
- I absolutely LOVE this dress. Have at least six of them now and want to order more as soon as size small becomes available in blush. Keep on adding colors of this great dress Fresh Produce. I will keep buying them.
- Fabulous Dress! -PJ
This is one of my FAV Fresh Produce Dresses (and I have a lot of them!!)
It is casual, yet dressy enough to wear out at night. I just bought it for a trip to Bermuda and it was perfect to wear out for dinner.
LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!!!
- Love this dress!! -golf
- I love this dress as it is so flattering and comfortable! Another go to item from Fresh Produce to dress up or be casual! Sooo glad they just came out with more colors...have it in the seashell pattern and black and now just ordered 3 more colors! Perfect!
- LOVE THIS DRESS -Elaine
- Thank you Fresh Produce for making such a cute dress in basic plain colors.I sometimes get tired of the fish prints and floweres that you have on most of your dresses.These are great,I only wish they didn't sell out so quickly so I could purchase more of them.I wear a size small and they are always hard to find.Hopefully you will get more in since I don't have a FP store near where I live.
- Cute Dress! -Janine
- After reading the reviews I decided to get an XL dress (size 14, large busted). The dress fits GREAT but is a little low to wear while teaching...nothing a little cami won't help! This is a wonderful summer find!
- LOVE this Dress -Twins Grammy
- I originally ordered this dress in pink and they sent me the wrong color,but it was so cute,that I kept it and went back and ordered three more colors.Love the cute ruffle on the bottom and how great the fabrics are,not cheap looking like most sundresses.Fresh Produce dresses are all I wear in the summertime and I hope they continue making these adorable dresses.I sure wish they would bring back the baby doll style that they started out making years ago.
- My Favorite Dress -Elaine
- I ordered this in Tropical Punch, but they sent the tortoise shell green by mistake. But My Husband loved it so much he said to keep it. I since ordered it in black and periwinkle .I am still trying to get the pink one that I wanted in the first place, but I am happy to have it in every other color too. Adorable and comfortable and not too short to wear without leggings underneath. I am very tall and the size small fits me perfectly. Thanks again Fresh Produce.
- Great Dress -Linda
- Just received this great little dress...I am between a 10-12 and always order a Medium in Fresh Produce dresses. However, after reading a post I ordered a Large and it is a perfect fit. Thanks for letting people know that if you are betweeen a 10-12, order the large.
- Great dress -Carol
- Great dress. Saucy. Soft. Comfortable. Good price. Good in the summer heat. Many compliments. I have in several colors.
- love, love, love! -keyboarder
- Just got mine in black and am thrilled -- so much so that I immediately went back and ordered the only other color left, tortoise shell. The Large is a great fit for me even though I'm somewhere between a 10 and 12.

- Love this dress! -Vicki
- Versatile and cute as can be. I even bought two so I could have an extra "little black dress" when this one wears out.
- Stylin' dress! -BG
- I love the pockets in this dress! The ruffle is so feminine, and the only place there are some gathers is under the empire waistline is in the front, so it's VERY slimming!
- Amazing dress! -lmitch282
- The Sunshine dress is absolutely adorable! I have it in all three colors. My husband loves it, too! When I wear one of them, people comment and want to try it on. We can't keep it on the rack. It sells itself!
