Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It This is one of my first Madewell purchases and I love it. It's a good length, drapes well, and is perfect for summer! The belt gives the dress good definition, the color is a bit brighter than in the photos.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great color, too much fabric I really love the colors of this dress. Very fun for the summer. I bought this dress to wear to my wedding rehearsal dinner in Kauai. The fabric was a bit heavier than I was expecting, not too heavy, but not the airy feel I was going for. Also, there is A LOT of fabric. I felt like it actually made me look a bit heavier than I am. I think with a bit less fabric I would have kept it. Overall it's very cute and probably just didn't work on my body.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great colors, not my favorite fabric The colors of this dress are great and it's very comfortable. The only downside is the fabric on the bottom is very easily wrinkled and a little uncomfortable in feel and flow. Would be amazing with a different fabric.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from What could have been.... I was hoping this dress would be the "perfect" summer dress, but it was a major fit failure on could be best described as a shapeless, unflattering, sack on my curves. Seems to run a bit big, and I also found it a bit sheer...especially in the back (enough to have to worry about undergarments) back it goes. It would likely look best on someone taller with less of a bust.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Fitted at Waist I was so excited to receive this dress. I loved the color combination, the length, and the overall look. To me, it looked like the perfect summer dress. I typically order a sz S in this style (I am 5'8"). Unfortunately, the dress does not have a fitted waist (covered in the picture by the sash). When I tried it on, it looked like a maternity dress due to where the sash hit/fit--it was much higher up/empire that it appears in the pictures shown on the site.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for me I found this dress very baggy and shapeless. It relies too much on the sash to give it shape at the waist rather than being tailored. The bottom half was much poofier than it appears in the photo. It looked very shapeless and sack-like on me, even with the sash tied. The fabric is towards the rough side and didn't feel like it would be very breathable. I opted to return this item.
