Silk Wrap-Front Maxi Dress

Silk Wrap-Front Maxi Dress is rated 1.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some pros, some cons I can see where the other reviewers are coming from. The silk used for this dress is not the highest quality, and I will most definitely be wearing bike shorts due to the high slit. I'm 5'8'' 125 lb and the dress is nearly maxi-length on me, but the slit keeps it from looking dowdy. I think it hangs well and looks casual-elegant, so I'll be keeping it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Had high hopes I was smitten with this dress after seeing it online - it looked like it would be absolutely beautiful. But in reality it's kind of a shapeless, boring nightgown. But even that I could've gotten past. Unfortunately, this dress only works if you plan on standing completely still while you're wearing it. Try to walk forward and the front slit opens up to let everybody see your lady parts. I guess you could try walking backwards?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly designed I agree with all the other reviews here - this dress is SO beautiful but completely unwearable due to the wide open "wrap" in the front. This dress isn't a "wrap" it's an open-faced sandwich. It's really too bad because I love it when I'm standing stock still, but who wants to run the risk of exposing themselves in public?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big Disappointment I'm 5'1" and 108 lbs. My measurements are 31-26.5-35. The dress looks more midi on the model, but it's definitely a maxi length on us shorter people. I ordered two sizes, xxs and xs. I'm usually an xs/0 in Madewell dresses. Xxs/00 tend to be too tight across the widest part of my back. I would've kept the xxs had I not experienced the issues below. The silk is poor quality. It feels very thin, papery, and frail and does not drape or move well. It's also pretty sheer. I do not like the cinching around the waist. It bunches up the fabric in a weird way and doesn't lay nicely against the body. The cinching causes the dress to ride up, which then causes it to gap at the chest exposing everything. There's a tiny silver snap button to hold the wrap together at the chest at the bottom of the v neckline. It isn't discrete at all. Lastly, I would be nervous about flashing everyone my crotch if I moved too quickly or took large steps. Return!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful but tragic I'm SO sad about this dress. It's so beautiful both online and in person. I had read the reviews and crossed my fingers that sizing up would allow for a more forgiving fit. However, everyone is correct in that the slit goes right up to your who-hah. You'll definitely be the center of attention in this because you'll be giving everyone a show! What a true disappointment. I HOPE that Madewell does a redesign for this because the demand is there but just overall poor, poor fit. This will be a return :(
