Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a dress for curvy girls! LOVE this dress and the color is the perfect poppy. Please bring this back in more colors (olive, navy, ivory, black). It's stunning on, the fabric is flowy and slightly sheer. Cuts a little short on me in the front but would be cute with skinny jeans or leggings for extra coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Dress I rarely buy clothing full price, but once I saw this dress online I knew I had to go to the store to try it. I sized down from an XS to an XXS - I'm petite and when I tried on my normal size the dress ran too long and oversized. I'm trying to build up my wardrobe with high quality materials and timeless styles and this dress definitely fits the bill. Beautiful color and very flattering. Had to wear nude-colored shorts under the dress as it is a little bit sheer, but other than that it's great and flowy for summer. Got a ton of compliments on it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Spring/Summer Work Staple Madewell, please make this in more colors! It is a perfect work staple---clean and professional/fun, but also lightweight. The cut is flowing without feeling like a sack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect It is a perfect dress if you have perfect legs. The color really catches attentions. The style is simple enough. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this shirt dress is WOW the fit is easy breezy cool - the look is minimalist and flattering. please make this dress in other neutral colors (black, beige, navy) -- i would buy one of each. a new go-to for all occasions. i use the slip from the tie-back mini dress in shadowpetal (which is a two part dress slip/over dress Madewell sells currently) and the slip works great for eliminating any sheerness/modesty issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You're going to need a slip I love this dress--it is loose and swingy, has a great color, and is perfect for hot summer days. That being said, you will need a slip--it is very transparent. It is also very short. I am 5'3 and do not think I could wear this to the office until it is cold enough for leggings/opaque tights.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great summer dress Lovely silk dress in a vibrant poppy red. Only thing to note is that you definitely need a slip with it and it's a bit short in front. Looks great with sandals or with heels! Would love in other colors!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Dress but too Sheer for Everyday Love this dress, the color is amazing, the fit is loose and flowy yet sexy. Only issue is that it's pretty sheer, not appropriate for daytime, I will probably wear it out on the weekends.
