Silk Daylight Dress

Silk Daylight Dress is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Size 0 too big when previous dress in similar cut size 0 fits perfect As some of the reviewers have mentioned this dress runs VERY large. Unfortunately the size 00 is sold out, but even if it was available, I'm not willing to run the risk of it not fitting. The current size 0 is almost 2 sizes bigger than it should be. Would suggest sizing at least 1 size down. Also, what's with the elastic waist bands madewell? All they do is cause the top part of the dress to fluff out in a very unflattering way. No elastic bands should be used in the production of a grown woman's clothes! Hope you guys can do something about the lazy styling and stop using elastic. Oh another thing. The lining is polyester which Madewell seems to be using these days in place of the silk that it's used in dresses from 2 years ago. Very disappointed in the drop in quality. Polyester can't breathe and just sticks to you on a hot day. I'd much rather the shell were polyester and the lining silk since good quality polyester can pass visually for silk but feels bad on skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great staple This dress runs large, size down! I am usually a 6 in dresses, 28 in jeans, 32D in bras. I got a size 4 in the black. I can wear this dress to work, out on a date, on the weekend, at night, with or without a bra. This is wonderful to dress up or down. And the sale price can't be beat. I love silk, I love this dress, and I will buy more of this style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely This dress is just dreamy. My usual size in dresses is 4 (5'8, 140), and I have wide shoulders and a small bust. I should have gone one size down, since this dress seems to accommodate a larger bust. But if I pull it down, it fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Dress I tend to wear a lot of fit and flare dresses, but I was looking for something with more movement for an outdoor wedding in California. I purchased this in the rose color and it is absolutely beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Summer Dress Love this dress! I wish I had bought more colors before they sold out in my size! Runs a bit big. I am 5'6" and 135lbs and the size 4 is plenty roomy on me. Light and comfortable, a great throw on with sandals and a long necklace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect summer dress I ordered the cranberry color and the color looks exactly as it does online. It's a very lovely summer dress. I wore it to a winery for wine tasting this past weekend and got loads of compliments. I did want to say that it was slightly large on me, but given that I am petite that might be why. I am 5' 1' and weight 115 and I got a size 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic, flattering LBD I love the cut of this dress. It's super flattering. I ordered the one in ikat pattern, and then when these went on sale I ordered the black. Can easily be dressed up or down. Classic wardrobe staple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from simple, gorgeous dress I love the silk daylight dress series. This one is super flattering, fits great, and is the perfect length. The only drawback is the lack of pockets unlike the cut from last year, but it's not a dealbreaker by any means.
