Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite dress! I got this in navy. Very stylish and flattering. I'm between a small and medium and I kept the medium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from way better ON! i stopped into madewell the other night and saw this dress on the hanger. it didn't jump out at me, but i needed something new for an event. i was pleasantly surprised when i tried it on! it drapes lovely and looks stylish with a pair of jeans and booties. i got compliments all night long! the best part is how comfortable i was- 5 hours, working and socializing, and completely at ease the entire time. love this dress

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect staple Love this dress. It will wrinkle a bit, so I recommend not wrapping up with a heavy coat or spending the whole commute seated, otherwise you'll be quite wrinkly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great dress! This dress is so pretty, perfect for the Spring! The only reason I gave it four stars was because of the length. It was a little shorter than I expected, but still wearable. Overall it was a great buy and I am considering purchasing in another color as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great I ordered this dress in a medium which I've worn before and this dress didn't fit me at all. It was very short in length-shorter than I would be comfortable with-and very loose and baggy everywhere else. I didn't feel comfortable exchanging for a different size so this was a return for me. For a reference, I am 5'7" and 145 lbs, average build.
