Rated 5 out of 5 by LisaMaria87 Good Versatile Dress
I have this dress in coral and navy blue. It is super comfy, and I like that it can be dressed up or down. It is a dress that can transition through the seasons. I have worn the navy blue one with tights several times this fall already and have received tons of compliments. Definitely a wardrobe staple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nb333 More delicate than it looks; true to size
I love the look of this dress (I have it in brown). The material is thinner and more delicate than it seems here. Feels like a very stretchy sweater with a structured frame.
I ordered down a size, based off reviews, expecting it to be relaxed and loose, but that was a mistake. It's acceptable but quite snug. I think it would have been PERFECT if I had ordered my normal size M, so consider this dress true-to-size.
In case you want more details about the fit - I'm a pear shape, so it's rare for the torso of a dress to be small on me, but this one is a little tight and a little short-waisted. The skirt isn't quite as gathered as I expected either, leaving less room for my larger bottom half.
All of these problems would have probably been alleviated by ordering my usual size. But the generous stretch in the material makes up for everything, so I kept it.
To be fair, I haven't worn it yet, so maybe it will loosen like sweaters tend to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by perry love this little dress!
i already have an insane amount of stripes in my wardrobe (doesn't every madewell devotee?) so it was fun to get a dress like this in a solid color that doesn't require me to forgo my obsession with horizontal lines. i also love the bright coral hue!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LUlu A bright versatile piece
Material is very nice. I want add more bright colors to my closet and it performs this function. I have worn it twice. The first time, I paired it with a denim shirt, and the second time with a cardigan. It received compliment. It really catches people's eyes. Very comfortable to wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JulieJ So comfortable
I bought this dress in ivory and it is a perfect transitional dress. I can wear it with tights and boots in the winter, or I can wear it in the spring/summer with sandals and a big chunky necklace. It fits so perfectly - I am usually a size M and it fit very true to size. It's also a great length on me (I am 5"9 so I usually have dresses that are too short on me). It is very flattering if you have a smaller waist and bigger bottom. I highly recommend this adorable dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ELPP Great fit on this classic dress!
I am in love with this dress. The fabric is like a light sweater - hard to tell online. The fit is so easy - perfect to cross seasons.

I have this dress in two colors. It has been a great fall dress and will transition into winter. Tights, boots, bomber and I'm ready to go.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LuckyCarms30 Great, versatile little dress!
This dress is super versatile as the cut is simple enough to wear a ton of ways - alone, with a cardigan and tights, with a button down, with a striped shirt and scarf... the options are pretty much endless! The material is thick yet soft and high quality, and I love the subtle stripes!
My ONLY complaint is that the waist is a little loose on me, and, since I have a somewhat zaftig figure (that is to say, I'm definitely no waif!), I can't imagine that I am alone in this complaint. However, this is nothing that a cute belt can't fix, and I'll still be sporting this a ton of ways over the next few seasons!

Rated 4 out of 5 by KA0910 Lovely dress
Loved this from the moment I put it on. Incredibly comfortable and flattering. Plan to style it with an unbuttoned chambray shirt and booties this spring. It does stretch out a bit after wearing all day, so it may look best with a belt to create a waste.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AnneR16 Cute Dress
This dress is really cute but almost too cute. I wore it with black tights, black belt and heels but at some point during the day I felt like I was 12 years old going to a birthday party. I took a chance with the color and overall I think it is a nice change from the basic black dresses I always default to. The skirt is very full and the top fits perfectly. The neckline is a little odd but I am going to keep wearing it this spring and see how it does when the weather is warm enough to skip tights and wear chunky high heeled sandals.
