Tailored Silk Dress

Tailored Silk Dress is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dress of the Year Love this! It is both simple, classy and flattering. I've tried the Madewell cami dress as well, but I like this fit much better (more fitted). I do like the opening in the back but have worn a brightly colored cami when I don't feel like not wearing a bra. I hope they make it in more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! This dress is AMAZING. This is my first purchase from Madwell and I'm seriously impressed! My favorite part about this dress is the fit - I'm a pear shape (5'5, 140 lbs, 34C) and a 6 was perfect. The description online says it's a straight skirt, but I found I had plenty of room for my large hips. I dressed it up with a gold statement necklace and gold belt - perfect for my swanky one year anniversary dinner! Very versatile - can be dressed up or down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good staple black dress for day or night Great fit, feminine, light, comfortable. Perfect for casual during the day or a night out. I am considering getting it in red too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable dress! I got this dress in neon persimmon, which is a lovely bright (neon!) coral. The silhouette is very flattering, the slit in the back is cute but not too revealing, and it's a very versatile length (a little shorter on me than on the model, but I'm 5'8). You can definitely wear this to a lot of different events, and it's a great buy for the price. If you're between sizes, I recommend going up a size, especially if you have wider hips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing versatile dress This dress is comfortable yet elegant, and so incredibly versatile you'll find yourself wanting to wear it everywhere. You can dress it down with a belt and flats like they did with the model here, or you can pair it with a bold, elegant necklace and heels for a glamorous Friday night look. I honestly can't wait until it gets warmer here on the east coast so that I can wear it more often!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic This dress is lovely, as other reviews indicate. I feel it fits true to size -- I got my usual size 4, and it seems to be a little more roomy now that I've worn it a few times. It's easy and timeless. The only con is that it wrinkles easily in an obvious way. A minor fault for the summer, I think.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing dress - way too short This is a beautiful silk dress which I wish I could keep, but the problem is it is way too short! It is much shorter than it appears in the photo. I ordered it in both a 10 and a 12, as I am usually a 10 in Madewell dresses but wanted to make sure it wasn't going to be too tight, as I am sometimes a 12 in other brands. I am an hourglass shape and the 10 would have been great on me if it had been longer. It has a nice shape with good waist definition. I love everything else about the dress except the length, so unfortunately, I am sending both sizes back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute dress This is a cute dress. I got the coral color which is very cheerful and will be great for the hot days and nights ahead. I'm a pear shape, dress size 4-6 and the size 4 fit perfectly. The detailing is really very nice - love the peak-a-boo back and front seaming. I wish it was a touch longer, but other than that it is great!
