Striped Retreat Dress

Striped Retreat Dress is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from My every day mum dress I love this dress. The material is nice and thick. The length is wonderful; I just find the sleeves to be strangely tight. I did get it in my usual size of XXS and feared the XS would hang on my frame strangely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must have for summer! I'm not usually a dress girl and I never thought I'd say this about a dress but I am in love! I got the red striped color, the cut makes for a perfect laid back easy summer day look. I think it fits true to size, I got a small which is my normal madewell size - I originally tried on a M because I wanted a laid back look but went with the small for a more fitted top, which I think is key for this dress because it does flare out. I love it so much I think I'm going to buy the Aztec color too!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute but top runs small I wear xs in madewell tees (I'm 5'4, 130lbs) so that is what I ordered here and it was waaaay too tight on my arms and shoulders. The quality of this dress is great - nice and thick and a good amount of stretch. The bottom half fit me fine as it flares out a bit. Going to size up and hope that one fits better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost, but Not Quite I ditto ktmc's review. I tried this on at the store and loved the overall style and the quality feel of the fabric, but it really tented out on me. A little more taken in would have have made it perfect. Maybe a better fit for a taller person? I'm 5'2", 113 and the XS fit quite comfortably, even though I have a wide chest and big arms.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from weird fit I sized up to a small and found the bottom portion way too baggy. If you have narrow shoulders you should try this dress on in your normal size other wise don't

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Top too small I was so excited to get this dress as it is perfect for casual days! Unfortunately, the top portion of this dress is way to tight in arms and chest. I am usually an XS in Madewell tops (5'1" 112lbs) and the XS was incredibly too tight in chest and arms. Looked fine, but felt uncomfortable. I sized up to a small and while it was a little looser, it still didn't fit as comfortably as I hoped.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's cute but baggy SO I would say that the quality is great and I love the style, to be able to just casually throw on a short sleeve dress is great. However, this one puffs out a lot. I don't want something fitted, but I also don't want something that makes me look pregnant. If it was a little more form fitting it would be great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Shrinks on the first wash I am 5'6" and 125lbs and ordered a small. The first time I wore it, I loved this dress! It fit perfectly and looked great. After 1 wash it shrunk so much that I now have to wear it as a long shirt over leggings. Huge bummer. Wish it were 3-4" longer or wish I had ordered a M.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute but boxy Following other reviewers, I ordered on size larger (M) than my usual S in Madewell dresses. Unfortunately, this made the dress too boxy and shapeless. The fabric is great, and I wanted to love this dress but opted for another option.
