Starlight Side-Tie Dress

Starlight Side-Tie Dress is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable Hi Friends, This dress is simple adorable. It is plain yet classy. The bows on the side add the cuteness you need. I usually wear a size ''0'' and purchased this dress in an xs. I would say you'd be fine if you remain with your normal size. If you are in doubt, go up not down. You will love it. The material is soft and it it a four seasons dress. I couldn't believe the amount of compliments I received. Trust me, you won't be disappointed. :)| Sharon

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect LBD I wanted this dress for a casual wedding in September - it will be perfect to dress up with heels and a fun pair of earrings! I'm typically a M/L. I sized up and got the L, it's a perfect swing shape! I'm a little over 5' 10" and the L fits similar to the model pictured.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get it!! If you're thinking about getting this at the sale price - do it!! After trying it on in the store I was willing to pay full price but lucky for me it went on sale soon after. This dress is so comfortable and yet I feel absolutely beautiful and cool at the same time when wearing it. It's as good with heels as with flat sandals or sneakers, will layer well in the fall and winter, and is different than all the other LBDs. The fabric is substantial and yet was not too hot on a humid 90+ degree day. I'm a 30DD or a 32D and dresses of this shape often look tent-like on me but this one is super flattering. I wore with a black underwire bandeau and it shows through the cutouts but you can't really tell it's not part of the dress. I would say order your normal Madewell size. I go between XS and XXS and XS was perfect in this. The side ties make the fit in the chest customizable and the rest of the dress is pretty free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good addition to my closet! I should start off by saying I normally hate wearing dresses, but I bought this for an event and I love it! I normally wear a medium but went up to a large so it fits like a true A-line dress. It hides everything I want to hide but my figure doesn't get lost in it. The material is also thick enough to not wear a bra but I am going to wear a sticky bra so it doesn't show on the sides where the ties are (which are adjustable). You can easily dress it up or down, if you are thinking about buying this dress I would!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it!!! This dress looks so good on!! It can be dressed up or down. I love the side ties which are adjustable!! I am 5'6" and 135 lbs and I usually wear a 4 or 6 in dresses and found that the small didn't look right on me, so I went a size up to the medium because it just looked better! The small was a little tight in some areas and I wanted it to fit more like a shift! Overall so so cute and with the side ties being adjustable I would recommend sizing up if you are between sizes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Put this on and couldn't help but twirl! Love the feel of this. Comfy, and a unique and casual take on the LBD. The fabric is thick and textured, and the shape is flattering on me. I am 5'4, 110 lbs, and I got a size 00. I wouldn't want it any smaller, but it fits perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great versatile "little black dress"! I LOVE this dress. Besides the material being so unique and "durable" the cut is so flattering too. The ties on the side I first felt hesitant about when ordering but you can loosen and tighten them which gives the dress a slightly different fit depending on how you tie them. This item is very true to size. Can be worn to a wedding or just a causal outing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this perfect LBD! This dress is so cute and flattering, can be dressed up or down. Super comfy and flattering, usually a size 2, 120 lbs, 5"6 and the xs was perfect! Length is great, mid thigh. I feel like tights and a blazer can take this into fall. Love this dress!
