Lakeshore Button-Back Dress

Lakeshore Button-Back Dress is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and flowy Love this dress. Perfect for hot days and easy to just throw on with either heels or sandals. The blue color is so beautiful and looks good on pretty much everybody. Only bummer is that the material wrinkles and you can't iron it -- be careful how you pack it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Great dress and great colors! The top half is pretty flowly, but the hips fit a smidge smaller than similar style dresses. I'm 5'7" and 150ish lbs and have never needed larger than M at Madewell or J.Crew (and have several S items), but went with L on this dress because M skimmed my booty pretty darn closely. In the dress's defense, my hips + butt are my thickest area, but other dresses from this past season still fit fine in M (ie Novel dress). Since I went up, I have had no issues with the dress being see-through. Also, this may sound crazy, but I prefer wearing the dress backwards with the V in front (ha, and maybe this is why I had to switch sizes?!). I asked a sales associates if it looked weird, but she said a lot of people have been doing it. Wearing it backwards, the V is a little low but not risqué. It feels on pointe with current trends. If you do this, I suggest removing the sewn-in tag, because it is along the V and could show through or be uncomfortable against your chest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just A Fun Dress Needed one more dress for an upcoming trip, and this dress is perfect. The silk fabric is soft, the blue color is beautiful and the buttons and deep-v back make the dress a little different. The dress is true to size. I ordered the red dress to decide which color I preferred. The red is pretty but is more of a hot pinkish than a true red.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile I agree with the previous reviewer that this dress is incredibly versatile, and also extremely flattering. It does wrinkle but I don't think it'll be a huge problem for a summer dress. I do think it runs a little large -- I am 5'4 with hips and the XS fits great. Can't wait to wear this all summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful color and versatile I wore this to work with a cardigan, to an event with silver heels, and with flat sandals to a birthday party and have received tons of compliments. The blue is deeper than pictured, a true cobalt blue. The fit was loose but flattering and runs true to size. Unlike the previous review, I did not find it to wrinkle to the point it took away from the look. It may be that the blue color is more forgiving and the wrinkles aren't as obvious. This is truly a versatile dress, you can wear it anywhere with a simple accessory change. I am considering getting the red as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Blue I bought this dress for a summer wedding. Brilliant blue color, very versatile, can be dressed up or down. I bought it in M- I'm 6', 165lb, 34F. I wear a 27 or 28 in madewell jeans. The cut of the dress is loose and falls beautifully. It hits shorter on me than the model. I think this would work for other women who are curvy. Would highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous and breezy I have the long black version of this dress and loved it so much I had to buy the shorter version too. When I saw this on sale I snapped it up immediately. The fit is easy, oversized, and the red is vibrant and true to the pics. The buttons down the back really make it for me, and it is sexy without being overly revealing. I'm 5'6" and 185 lbs, hourglass shape, and my usual xl fit exactly as I hoped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go-to date night dress This dress is my new favorite wardrobe piece. My husband got it for me in blue thinking I'd be able to use it as a low-key cover-up, but instead I used it for any event for which I want to look breezily dressed up. Debating getting it in red now, too. Just need to wait for a sale. (height: 5'9", slim athletic build)
