Rated 5 out of 5 by from Head-turner LOVED this dress. The back buttons make this a simple and beautiful piece. I kept it in the bag for a while and Im so glad I finally went for it. Good job Madewell

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One plus another It’s my LBD(long black dress)! It comes built with a hidden side. I like to wear the buttonside to the front for an additional look—the rebel in me :) Love, love, love!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! Great, versatile maxi. True to size. Love the side slits and the buttons in back -- they make this little dress surprisingly sexy. Looks great on my curvy frame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and Cute! I love this dress, wish I had discovered it earlier in the summer so I could've worn it all season. Fits loosely but comfortably true-to-size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my favorite dress in years This might be my favorite dress I've ever bought from Madewell (or anywhere?!) It is flowy and unbelievably comfortable, and somehow manages to be loose AND slimming, which is not something I've ever been able to achieve on my body frame. I'm still adjusting to a post-baby body and this is the first dress that has made me feel like my old self. Plus, the slits add visual interest but are conservative and shin-length, unlike a lot of dresses these days. And the back details are awesome. I agree with other reviews that this ran large for me -- I am 5'3" and 125 lbs and an XXS still left plenty of room. My only criticism is that the dress snags and pulls easily -- I have a couple of snags already and I'm heartbroken. But I love this dress so much that I'd just buy a backup, if Madewell brought it back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Dress — A Must-Own! I can't stress enough how beautiful this dress is. I've been a Madewell shopper for years, but this is my first review. If your size is still available, buy while it's on sale! The fabric is wonderful, the style is flattering, and its cut makes it a two-for-one (it can be worn with the buttons to the front or back). I'm generally a Medium (size 28/29 jeans, 34 DD chest) and this one fit true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Summer Maxi. I am typically a medium at Madewell, but seized down to a small in this dress. Great looking dress for summer and drapes beautifully, I wear this dress with the buttons as the front of the dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Dress Ever! The perfect dress. Runs large, so size one size down. I'm 5'5, 140 and the small fits perfect. It's long, so almost dusts the ground. I may get it hemmed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another thumbs up for this dress! This isn't my usual "style" of dress from MW, but the reviews made me step outside of my comfort zone and I'm glad I did! It's absolutely lovely, effortless and chic. I am usually a size 2, and got an XXS so I would say it runs big and I would size down unless you wanted a paper bag fit. The XXS on me is a closer fit (looser) than the model, but I think it's more flattering. As far as length, I'm 5'4'' and it's just above the ground (no altering needed). Super comfortable. Give it a try!
