Crushed Velvet Slip Dress

Crushed Velvet Slip Dress is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't think twice - just get it! You know your dress is fabulous when at least 5 different people comment on how much they like your dress in a span of 30 minutes. This dress is effortlessly chic. True to size. For reference, I'm 5'3", 123 lbs and the XS was perfect. A little long, but that's just because I'm short. I'm not planning on getting it shortened.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant and romantic I love this dress so much. It's comfortable, but also extremely romantic. The front looks great on me and I'm 128lbs and 34A wearing a small. For some reason it doesn't make my arms look huge either even though it's spaghetti straps? Lastly, the back is just okay in all honesty. I am not the biggest fan of the crossed straps, but not a deal breaker because I have longer hair to cover it. Anyways... this review is just to reassure you that if you have reason to believe that you should buy this dress- don't ignore that feeling! However, the quality and style alone does not justify buying the dress at full price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect holiday dress! Love the color, quality and the velvet texture. Im usually between size 4-6 in madewell dresses. This worked best in size XS. Would definitely recommend to buy it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply beautiful The quality and color of this dress are amazing. As another reviewed there’s a lot of fabric but by no means do you get lost in it. It drapes beautifully and is very flattering. I am 160, 5’5 athletic build and went with a M. It’s a timeless piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite dress. ever. The fit is perfect, the fabric is gorgeous, but the style is relaxed; enough, to wear it everyday...each day a different look. I hope I can find ways to stretch this dress into spring and fall!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Dress This Season This dress literally has everything going for it! The color and crushed velvet texture are gorgeous, and the dress itself is super versatile. I've worn it just as you see on the model, but I've also worn it layered with a white tee underneath for a more casual look. Even looks great with a leather jacket. I don't mind the empire waist as others have mentioned, but I'm small on top. I'm also short and the length is perfect. Fits very true to size. I would literally wear this dress every day if I could!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Velvet Slip Dress w empire waist Love this dress. I love the color, I love the stretchy velvet fabric, I love the length, I love the fit, however… It has an empire waist that I wish was not part of the dress. I wish it was just a plain slip dress.. Otherwise it’s a perfect for me .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits Beautifully This dress is such a gorgeous color and high quality of velvet. I wish it was waisted instead of it gathering right under the chest BUT it lays really well anyway. It's definitely true to size and not so flowy that you get lost in it at all! Love it Madewell and please bring a store to Midland,TX!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dressy! Madewell always delivers on quality and I like that the fabrique of this dress contains silk, I am a big fan of natural fibers. I would have preferred regular velvet to crushed, but I can live with that. It fits nice, without accentuating my postpartum belly, my husband said “Greek goddess-y” and I can live with that too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute, but didn't quite work on me I really like how this dress looks and that it can be fancy without feeling too overdone. One gripe is the sizing didn't work for me. I had to safety pin the straps so I wasn't exposed in the front & around the empire waistband so it would cinch in properly. I'm definitely smaller chested, so might have been a personal problem.
