Cutout Sundress

Cutout Sundress is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect When I saw this dress online, I had to rush to my nearest store to see it in person. The dress had everything going for it: the defined waistline, the front/back v-cut, and the cheeky little cutout. Sadly, it just didn't do any favours for my figure (5'10", 34DDD, hourglass shape). The bust does run a little smaller than the skirt portion, but for whatever reason the size 6 fit me fine and the size 8 was too wide in the waist. Unfortunately, I think I was too chesty for the dress, as the cutout didn't sit flush with my ribs... my bust kind of pulled the cutout forward and made it look like a gaping hole. Could have been perfect, but not quite. Still giving it 4 stars as my flatter-chested friend looks amazing in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect LBD I got this dress on sale, so it was a huge steal. It is super comfortable, fits great, and the cutout gives it a unique feel. The only thing is that when I spill something on it it, is very noticeable. However, it is easy to wash out and doesn't stain. I would definitely recommend this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dress I know this is crazy, but I bought this dress in a 6. I'm 5'3", 135lbs, 34B chest and I normally wear a 2. It was big in the shoulders, but to be honest I think even a 4 would have been too big in the shoulders as I have small shoulders. The rest of the dress fit enough that it didn't fit like a sack, but I definitely should have bought a 4. The length comes RIGHT above the knee but even though I have a smaller frame the shape of the dress doesn't make me look frumpy. I love the little cut out at the front, which is why I had to own the dress. The material is nice as well, I left it in the bathroom while I showered to take out some of the wrinkles from shipping & was pleased to see it doesn't wrinkle easily. Wish I would have bought a 4, but still a cute dress and can't wait to wear it more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for either casual or dressing up I got the dress for a wedding I plan to attend in October, and am in love with it. I'm usually a Madewell XS/size 24 for jeans, and got the 0, and was concerned whether it would run large on me, based on previous Madwell purchase experiences. However, the bust is slightly tighter-fitted, which makes the 0 perfect for me! The neckline as well as the back is cut beautifully and make the dress a great fit for an occasion like a wedding, as well as a casual day dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the fit! I ordered a size 0 (I am 5'8" and 120 lbs), and the dress fit pretty much the same as it looks on the model except the length was a little higher up from my knees. It's versatile in the way that I can wear it to work with a same colored cami underneath the dress and wear it out without the cami.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent! This is my new favorite dress. I'm 5' 0", a little curvy, and definitely busty, and this dress looked great. I felt sexy, the cut is just revealing enough. Buy it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Nice Dress The fabric, construction and style of this dress are top notch! I have a 32(c) rib cage. The seam where the top meets the bottom of the dress is too tight around my rib cage in size 2. Since it is such a close fit, I'm confident a size 4 would fit me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome summer dress! I just received this in the mail and I love it. I was afraid the 00 would be too big since the XXS is usually slightly loose on me, but it fits perfectly. I'm short (5'0, 100lb) and it fits everywhere. It's not even too long, though I might get it hemmed an inch or so (for comparison, I bought the swingout shirtdress and it needed to be hemmed at least 4"). The little cutout detail makes it fun but not tacky, and it's very well made. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs small in the top I LOVE this dress. It looks so great on everyone and I'm so glad it's machine washable. The top runs a bit tight, so size up if you are bustier .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Busty Girls Beware This dress is very well made. The cutout is tasteful and the length is cute and appropriate for lots of occasions. I will say though, as previously mentioned, if you are a busty gal this may not be the dress for you. I'm a 36DDD and cannot wear a bra with this. The structure holds the gals up but the side of the top are low cross over pieces so there is quite a bit of skin showing. I don't know how anyone would be able to wear a bra with this. I will be keeping it, as it was final sale, but also because paired with a cardigan, it's a versatile piece that I'm happy to add to my wardrobe.
