Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very cute 132lbs, 5"1 XS was my choice, even though I have a little pouch from my son, it still fits me perfectly without showing my little belly. It's short. Great for cover up. It's also lined.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect I would give this dress six stars if I could! First off, the fabric is light and not too heavy - a perfect transitional dress for spring and fall. You could definitely wear booties now with it and sandals later. I could probably even wear it here in Georgia in the summer and be okay at an indoor event. It does looks like it may wrinkle easily, but no issues yet with that. Next, pockets! I always love a dress with pockets, and these are at just the right place without adding extra bulk on the hips. The embroidery detail is beautiful, and I think it is just the right amount without being overbearing up top. I have a large chest, and sometimes busy prints can be too much, but the simple V here and detail on the sides is a great balance. The sleeves are also unique, and I like the open slits as an alternative to off-the-shoulder dresses. Overall, a fantastic addition to my Madewell collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and comfortable Love this pretty dress. I'm 5' 2", 105 lbs, and bought XXS. It is comfortably loose without being too huge. It reveals more cleavage than I expected from the photo, so not quite office appropriate unless I pin it a little or tie it tightly closed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy breezy summer dress! Love the Mexican inspired embroidery and the fact that it's 100% cotton! It is true to size and I can't wait to wear it once it's warmer here in Portland!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, pretty & unique I love this dress! It's got a nice, relaxed fit but isn't frumpy at all. The embroidery is really pretty, and the sleeves give it a unique look. I'm 5'3" and usually wear a size 27/28 in Madewell jeans and a small in their tops. I ordered the small in this dress and it fits TTS. Get this if you're looking for something comfortable with a little special something!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice causal dress I like waist defined dresses better than shift ones, but I still got this dress and was not disappointed! It's pretty and subtle and chic. I'll definitely wear this during school days when New England get a little bit warmer :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super-cute, maybe slightly questionable fabric (yet to be seen) This is adorable, took me a bit to warm up to because I'm always convinced that this type of style makes me look a little fat as a shortie. However, it's definitely a perfect spring dress. The fabric is quite light-weight, I'm hoping it holds up as it was not cheap, but it's really, really freaking cute. One concern if you're tall or planning on doing a lot of reaching overhead, it is pretty short. Like when I reached my arms over my head my butt was showing, so won't be holding the high subway pole in this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not really worth the price I had hoped that this would be a summer staple. It's not. Fabrication is cheap and embroidery is just ok. I am returning this dress bc it's just not that great a look for me. Sizing is fine. It just appears to be 'cheap'.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me I ordered this in both small and medium, and neither size worked. I'm 5'4 130. The small fit through the body, but was too tight across the shoulders and the medium looked baggy and unflattering. The dress is beautiful and reading the other reviews, I just had bad luck with this one. The tassels and ties were a little annoying, but still pretty. I did get the peasant top version of this, and that worked great.
