Denim Courier Shirtdress

Denim Courier Shirtdress is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress, even better costumer service Love the dress, super soft comfy denim 5' 6" 120 lb. usually wear a size small, went with xs and love it Might be a little tight in the arms, but the rest of the fit is great. I'm sure if I had went with my regular size it would be no tightness at all. Worked with the customer service team after a mistake that was totally my fault, and they were incredible. Super happy in all aspects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to summer dress I love this dress. I'm 5'5 and 140lbs and I got a medium. If you want a comfy loose fit then I would stick with your usual size. If you want it to be a bit more fitting, I would size down. I like the super loose feeling of the medium so kept it. I've worn it twice now - both times with a neck scarf and and got lots of compliments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from super comfortable I love Made Well. Because the clothing is made well. I bought several items at one time and have kept them all. Your fabrics are sturdy (rather than flimsy, as so many other items in other stores) and they wear smoothly (rather than wrinkled, as so many other items in other stores), and they travel through the day into evening without having to change into something fresh. I'll be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effortlessly chic I am petite (at 5'2", I usually wear a size 2 and XS or S tops), so I was worried that this dress would overwhelm my frame. I was so pleasantly surprised when I tried it on--it definitely has an over-sized fit, but it's so chic and comfortable! It has washed well, and the fabric is a denim blend, so I can get away with wearing it to work with a statement necklace and dressy sandals. If you have had trouble with the pockets sticking out when sizing down in Madewell dresses (I definitely have), then give this dress a try--the pockets do not stick out, so it drapes really beautifully. This is the PERFECT summer dress, and it can easily be dressed up or down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful summer piece This dress is amazing and well worth the price! I have two of the courier shirts and the shirtdress is just as great. The dress wears well without wrinkling, is very breathable, and looks good after machine washing. Definitely recommend! I am 5'3" 120 lbs and the XS fits perfectly and hits just above my knees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfy, but feels stylish I ordered down (xs instead of s) as I didn't want it too baggy, and the fit is great. Lovely shirt dress. It will be my jeans equivalent once we see some sun. Great pockets and good fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple Casual Chic This dress is made of a nice washable and dryable fabric that leaves virtually no wrinkles out of the dryer. The Large size fit is great and covers tummy flaws without being too conforming. However, the length is such that a man on the street remarked, "THAT is a short dress!" as I walked past. Yes, it IS. As my 5'9" legs are one of my better attributes, it definitely elongates them with transitional, strappy, block-heeled cognac sandals. I love this courier style from Madewell, and it's the third purchase of the style in different fabrics that I own. Thanks Madewell for producing some casual dresses with sleeves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable and got tons of compliments I work at an advertising agency so work attire is pretty casual - wore this with some wood block heels and a neck scarf and got tons of compliments all day. I'm in between sizes so it was slightly large up top, but fit around my hips well - all good, but if you're a severe pear shape it might be awkward as it's pretty straight up and down. LOVE the pockets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy dress for work or play Things to love about this dress right off the bat: the soft, comfortable fabric; the pockets; the fact that you can put it on right out of the dryer without ironing; and the sturdy material that hangs well. The first time I put this dress on, I was a smidge disappointed because it felt a bit stiff, which exacerbated the already-boxy shape. I'd bought it as a casual spring dress, but in the end it seemed more like something I'd wear to work. I slapped on a chunky belt and some ankle boots and wore it to the office, where I got a couple compliments. Cut to today, where I put it on for the first time after running it through the washer and dryer. This time when I put it on, the overall look was perfect. I think it had shrunk ever so slightly, the stiffness was gone, and the fabric had acquired a bit of clinginess which helps to compensate for the lack of a defined waist. I'll be wearing this to the park today, without a belt! I'm 5'4", 130 lb and the medium fits TTS.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could be better I think I bought this dress the first day it posted – that's how much I wanted to love it, especially as the kind of girl who is a denim dress, shirt, jacket (basically anything but pants) addict. Unfortunately, it looks nowhere as good on me as it does the model. It's a little shapeless, and I feel like the really bulky pockets do not help. But it is comfortable and well-made, and for Madewell pricing it is very reasonably marked. If you are considering sizing up to avoid awkward button gaps, don't worry about it because this does run large.
