Eyelet Open-Back Overlay Dress is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely summer dress I bought this cute dress in white, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that it's even prettier in person. Getting the dress on is a bit tricky, but it really is a lovely design (I love the back especially).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great white dress Loved this dress. It's great for spring and summer, maybe into fall. Love the back cutout. A little loose around the waist. Great quality for a beautiful dress!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect summer dress My biggest concern was that the back of the skirt would gape. Ordered a size 0 and it was perfect. Love the slightly off-white color. I don't find the front seam distracting at all. Add a necklace to cover it up if it bugs you. I think it adds interest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicate and flattering This dress is pretty and flirty all at once. I got it in white, and I can't wait to pair it with sandals or my cowgirl boots. The details on the edge adds a delicate touch, the overlay is flattering, and the opening in the back makes it extra fun. I am 5'9" and 135 lbs-I ordered a 2 and it fits perfectly (I find that Madewell tends to run large so I always size down-this time was no exception!) I highly recommend this dress!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So so so cute I love this dress. I am 5'10, 155 lbs. ordered size 8 and the fit is perfect. My only comment is that it is a bit shorter than I would like. Not for work, but wonderful for vacation. Oh the perils of being tall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a cute little LBD Lightweight, machine washable, and cute feminine details...makes it a perfect casual LBD for summer! I wish it had a zip or something in the back for the top because like others commented, trying to put it on can be a little tricky and makeup can get on the neck area...which is not a big problem. Just like another reviewer said, I first bought the same style dress in stripes (the blue linen one) and did not like that one at all because of a huge top portion and tight wait with a zip, but this one has elastic waist band and the top is not as boxy! Like it much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful dress I received this dress couple of weeks ago. It fits true to size. The material is a bit thicker so it is more for spring then those hot summer days. The style is cute. It can be dressed up or down. It can even be worn to the office with a light sweater or jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart summer dress I bought this in white and love it -- it's the perfect summer dress: light, airy, nice soft cotton, not too see-through, gives you a stylish silhouette. The eyelet detailing around the shoulders and hem are beautiful without being too cutesy. You can wear a regular bra under the dress without the bra showing because the cut-out is positioned just right. Also nice to have the cut-out in the back for those particularly humid days. Requires a little bit of acrobatics to wriggle out of the dress, which is why I docked a star under the "Comfort" rating. But overall am very happy with this purchase and am considering buying it in black too.
