Silk Slip Dress

Silk Slip Dress is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! but had to exchange size This dress is really great! It's beautiful, just as pictured, and the color is a deep deep blue. I was debating between a 2 and a 4 (I'm 5'4, 115lbs, pretty small chested). I went with a 2, but I'm exchanging it for a 0. The chest area is a little bit and the straps slide off my shoulders pretty easily. The rest of the dress fits well, so I'm sure anyone my size but with a fuller chest could easily wear the 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect dress This dress is perfect: it's body skimming, but not too tight; the back and the front are both sexy but not too low; and the length is ideal for both flat sandals and heels. I'm usually between a 2 and a 4, and I got the 2 here. (I'm 5'7", about 125 lbs., and a 34A). The chest is snug, so I'd imagine anyone with a bigger chest may want to size up. Can't wait to wear this to every cocktail party this summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This dress is beautiful This dress is beautiful but I had the opposite experience as other reviewers- I thought the chest area was huge! I am exchanging the 2 for a 0 and am hoping that the chest fits but the rest isn't too tight. Otherwise, I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STUNNING Just got this dress in the mail and it is STUNNING! I love that it's simple but so flattering and low key sexy. Also, thank you Madewell for FINALLY making a dress for those of us that have shape! I'm so over the shift/paper bag dress trend and cannot say enough how great this dress is for highlighting your figure. I've got boobs and hips and this dress is here for all of it. For reference, I tried sizes 00-4 (because sizing can be so wonky) and I ended up with the 0. I'm 120lbs. a 34D, 26 waist and 36 hips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy Love this dress! It's very sophistaced and sexy at the same time. If you are large chested I would definitely size up. I'm a 32DD and normally wear a dress size 6, but I ended up purchasing an 8 in this dress! I'm wearing it to a silent auction this weekend and I'm so excited!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect, versatile semi-formal dress This dress is perfect-- it can be dressed up or down easily, it's well-made and flattering, and so simple that you could wear it to a formal event or dress it down with a jean jacket and sandals for a summer's day! With black tights and a turtleneck, it could also be worn in fall or winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SEXY DRESS I'm in love love love- finally a dress that I feel sexy in from Madewell! I'm petite just under 5'2 and 102 lbs and this dress is body skimming but not too tight and looks lovely on me (runs true to size - I purchased a 00). I'm not someone who can wear the over-sized dresses or little girl styles, Unfortunately those are what styles dominate Madewell. I'll be wearing this to a summer wedding and out with my friends. Thanks Madewell for making a grown up dress for when I want to feel sexy and age appropriate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful!!!!! BUT... I agree with all reviewers, completely in love with this dress. Elegant, understated elegance. Also, finally a dress that is not a bag. This dress is cut with curves in mind so it does not fit like a sac. Thank you for that Madewell!! Finally!!! Shows my curves yet drapes around them with no cling, very, very flattering ;] The most reviewers, this does not fit at all in the bust, it is HUGE!! I am wearing a size 6 dress and I am a 34 D!!!!! Love the dress enough that I will have to have altered. My tailor is going to charge me an arm and a leg for this...arrrgggg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This dress is beautiful. I debated between buying the 2 and the 4. In the end, I went for the 4. It is very beautiful. The straps are a little too long, is my issue. I am thinking too much room in the chest. I am still keeping it though. It adds curves in a good way, in my opinion, and hides flaws. It is a little plain perhaps, but in an understated, classy way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely! This is a gorgeous dress. Pros: --Lightweight silk in a beautiful blue that's almost black --lined --fit through body is perfect, not too tight, not too loose Cons: --I see others who ordered the size 2 had this issue, but the bust is a bit large, even with my padded strapless bra. I'm afraid the rest of the dress will be too tight if I exchange for a 0, so I'll probably have the bust altered. If you can try this on in a store, you should so you can get the sizing right. For reference, I am 5'5", small bust (B cup), 122 lbs.
