Rated 5 out of 5 by Tatey Cute dress. Flattering
This dress is a great LBD that can be dressed up or down. It's a great value - bought it on sale. It is a little snug in the lower rib cage area but looks great and is flattering. It runs small - I usually wear a 2 in most brands but had to buy a 6. Not sure if this is my madewell size though as this is my first purchase from madewell. I bought this dress for my bridesmaids and will add on a pink sparkly belt! They all love the dress and say it is a dress they will wear again.

I really like the styling of this dress - the panels of plain black poly fabric mixed with the lace is a really modern take on a classic fabric, and the shaping at the bodice is really flattering. There is boning in the top, and a bra-like piece with elastic at the top which helps keep this up. I wore it to my office's holiday party and didn't have to hike the top up all night -- even with dancing, it didn't slide down at all.
Sizing is pretty true to size -- I wish it came in a 00 because it's a little too big around the top for me (although like I said, with the elastic inside it didn't even matter). I'm 5'4" and 105 lbs, and I need it taken in about 1-1.5" around the top of the bodice. Other than that, it's fabulous! I got lots of compliments when I wore it and look forward to getting lots of use out of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Robyn10 Love the lace detail and simplicity, great take on the LBD
Only downside if for those with a more "boyish" figure, the cinched waist falls a little low. But perfect length, can be dressed up or down. Perfect for weddings.
