Magnolia Tie-Back Maxi Dress

Magnolia Tie-Back Maxi Dress is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review of both colors and two sizes My stats- 5'6", 122lbs, 36A/B with broader shoulders. Bashful, size small- It is in fact on the peach color side but it is a stunning color. Dress is well made and is fully lined. Fit was perfect. Material is substantial. I recommend steaming to get the wrinkles out. Black, size extra small- I found absolutely no significant size difference between the small and xs. One thing to note, the black is not fully lined. It is only lined at the chest. It is not see through. Overall review- there wasn't much of a difference in sizing. I probably could've ordered a medium and acquired the same fit. Length was the same on both. So I didn't find this to run large at all. It's definitely tts. Two things to note- bashful is peach and fully lined and black is only lined at chest. Both were floor length on me. If you are taller, it will be ankle length or above. If you are petite, it will be too long. But on the black since it lacks a fully lined skirt, it's an easy hem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful maxi dress I love the fit of this dress. A high waistline always has an elongating effect and the gathered material gives it a Grecian feel which I like. The skirt could use some lining but I'm not too worried about that. I also like that I can wear a bra under it if I want. Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect summer events dress! I've been on the hunt for the perfect maxi for one of my bridal showers and this is IT! Excellent quality. Super flattering. I ordered a medium & small to decide what size would be best and went with the small (I'm 5'7 and size 6-8) runs slightly large so keep that in mind. Purchased the pink and couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Wedding Season Dress! I saw this dress on Facebook and had to have it! I almost bought my size (Large) online but thought maybe I should try it on first. I ended up at the Bellevue, WA store and the lovely associates Riley and Amy helped me pick out the right size which ended up being a Small!! I have a larger bottom half (big hips and thighs) and smaller up top (36A-34B) and this dress fit perfectly with even a little room to spare. Not tight at all and is super flowy yet flattering. It is perfect to wear to weddings or whenever you want. Easy to dress up and dress down. LOVE!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning! I bought this dress yesterday and can't wait to wear it. I'm 5'6'' with an athletic build, with slightly wider hips. I bought a XS and it fits perfectly. The color is beautiful and the material is WELLMADE! It'll be a great dress to go out to dinner in, for a wedding or for any occasion really!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dress up or down This dress is really pretty and has a nice weight to it. I think it could be dressed up for a wedding, or down with a jean jacket and flats. I almost bought the pink, but felt like it was a tiny bit too 'brides maids-ey', so I opted for the black. I'm tall, and it is still pretty long on me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Such a versatile piece My entire wardrobe is full of Madewell, so I've gotten really familiar with the sizing, although this dress seemed to run just slightly large. Or perhaps I haven't ever had a maxi dress that is quite as voluminous. When I stand in the wind, I am practically Beyonce. Actually, I am Beyonce, always, but I digress. This dress is remarkably simple, but elegant enough for a wedding or dinner out, but also relaxed enough for an afternoon picnic or work. With the right shoes and earrings, this dress can take you anywhere you need to go. The gather is just above the natural waist, so there's no worry about eating too much cake! I love versatile pieces that can be dressed up or down, and this is exactly that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect dance floor dress I bought this dress for a wedding I was in and it was the most fun to dance in! It was comfy, breathable, and hid the places you want hid!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Dress This dress is beautiful and very comfortable. However, I slighty regret getting a small instead of x-small. I'm 5'5 and 135 lbs. Normally, I go between small and medium at madewell. The dress fits me, but I think I could have down-sized for a better look.
