Madewell x No.6 Silk Keyhole Dress in Etched Floral

Madewell x No.6 Silk Keyhole Dress in Etched Floral is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection I was hesitant to buy this dress upon seeing the reviews, but took a chance on it last week. I'm so glad I did! I love the dark floral print on black silk, it gives the dress a little more edge. I am a 12 or 14 in Madewell dresses, but took a chance on the 12. It fit like it was made for me. It fit perfectly in the waist and really emphasizes it. Also bear in mind that I have a wider ribcage and larger breasts, so the top half wasn't blousy at all. I love the keyhole in the front and the slit in back, which is great for giving everyone a little peek of scars and/or tattoos. I can't wait to wear this one out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy breezy, flattering dress! I cannot wait to wear this dress this summer! It is going to be a fab day-to-night go-to! Even though I usually feel I must wear a bra, I think I’ll be able to get away without one in this dress. The way the top drapes and the material hides the fact you’re not wearing a bra without hiding your girls. Which is crucial with the open slit down the back. Although, a black bandeaux strapless bra works great showing through the slit in the back. I usually wear a 4 and am curvy with a small waist and slightly thick thighs and behind, and I went with a 4. I may have been able to go with a 2, but I think the waist would have been tight and made the dress less comfy and easy-going. The important part of the fit is the waist, so order with your waist in mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous! Wore this on a date night recently. Because of the back I didn’t wear a bra, but the design still miraculously keeps you from popping out in the front (unless you’re large chested, I suppose). Flattering fit, silky fabric. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flowy floral silk dress Love this dress! I have yet to have an occasion to wear it but the dress fits perfectly (Ordered size 2 and I am 34B/petite/5'2") and is in a great length - hits around knees. I wasn't expecting the rope looping around the neck to be tied in the back but is made with great material so it doesn't look cheap. And the open back is subtle yet sexy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect dress Super flattering. I’m 54YO, 5’7” 137lbs. Athletic build. I have trouble finding dresses that look attractive with my flat chest but this dress looks amazing! Great length. Beautiful fabric.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really cute and perfect for summer! I got this dress for a wedding and I'm so excited about it. I'm 5'4, 126 lbs and usually wear a 0 in Madewell dresses, I probably could have gone down a size for it to fit like a glove. The color is a bit different that it looks online. It's actually more of a brown rust red than orange rust, so it doesn't look like true black. I think this dress will be perfect for dressing up and dressing down and best of all, there are pockets!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Awkward Fit The quality of the dress is nice but the fit is very poor. Unless you are 5'10' and have extremely long legs this dress makes you look frumpy. THe top portion is too baggy even though the waist is tight. Wish I could return this but it is final sale...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great concept, but poor construction This dress is made with a high quality fabric that was very pretty in person, but I think madewell really missed the mark with its construction. Had it been better made, I think it would have been well worth the price. I'm 5'6'', 125lb, athletic build. This often causes problems with dresses constructed with unforgiving fabrics because my waist size of 28-29 in often dictates a larger size than the rest of my build requires. For this reason, I typically tend to push the lower limit of sizing based on my waist. As I feared, the dress was too snug in the waist (I would have been uncomfortable sitting), but it was far too big everywhere else, so I couldn't justify sizing up. The dress fell below my knees (it's pictured above the knee) and I was swimming in the top (I wear a 32B). It was almost as if I need to be a few inches taller for the fabric to lay properly. For me, it wasn't so much an issue of it not being worth the price; it was simply too ill-fitting to justify wearing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fabric is gorgeous. Fit is terrible. The silk is lovely! But the fit is awful--way too blousy on top, way too long in the waist, and not adjustable. :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wanted to Love I wanted to love this dress - the fabric is gorgeous!! However, the fit is not great for me - the top is super blousy (maybe better for larger chested women) and disproportionate to the skirt and the dress is unlined and therefore sheer to the point of being unwearable without a slip of some kind.
