Tank Maxi Dress

Tank Maxi Dress is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase I have been searching for the perfect black maxi dress. It’s not as simple as it seems and I’m so happy that I found this dress. I’m extremely picky with my clothes and I have to say that this one nailed everything I was looking for. The sizing at Madewell is usually larger than other brands so I ordered a 0 which fits perfectly with a little wiggle room. The material is sturdy and light enough for the summer but thicker than what you would expect. I’m 5’5” and most of the maxi dresses I’ve come across always end up hitting the floor. But this hit right at my ankles which was exactly what I wanted. There are slits on each side that are not too high and not too low so your legs can breathe. There is also split detailing in the front of the dress you may not notice in the photos but it adds to its simplicity. This dress is well worth the sales price and I really wish I had bought the white dress as well before it sold out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good year round It is a very nice maxi and the material is a little thick and not thin. So it is really good to wear year round in Los Angeles. I am 5ft4in & 117lb & 30d or 32b on top (for reference) and ordered size 2 and it was a little loose on the top, so I could go down to a 0. But I would rather have size 2 just in case it shrinks after washing. I bought mine as final size, and unfortunately, when I received mine it had a little tear in the fabric at the side slit. I called customer service to see if I could get another size 2 or 0, but was told it was out of stock. Even though I see on the website that it is available. So sad...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and simple I like this dress very much. I got white one. I was thinking of getting black too, since 3/4 of my closet are black things, but somehow to me it looked too black... If it was waisted a little bit more maybe it would look better in black, but non waisted as it is it is too dark for a summer dress. So I decided to go for white. The shape is really interesting, but I'd still wish it had a bit of a waist... Although I like it and wear it often as it is. As far as with sizing, my conclusion is that it runs very large. I sized it dow one size, and even two sizes down would fit perfect. I tired on two sizes down, but since I have wide shoulders, two sizes down were somehow too small around sholders...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to wear, incredible fit, slimming this dress is ridiculously amazing to say the least. it is NOT see thru or clingy, which is so hard to come by with black maxi dresses. however, like the other reviewers said, the material is thicker than what you may be used to so FYI. the cut around the arm is sporty and very flattering. the length is perfect for my 5'3" petite frame. it runs a half size big so stick with your regular size. quality is superb. it's currently on super sale so i went ahead and purchased the white version even though i don't ever wear white dresses or all white anything. def helps that it's also machine washable! LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress!!! give it a try if you see it in your store!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not as simple as it looks I was walking out of Madewell when I spotted this dress. I tried it on and fell in love. The fabric is super soft. I couldn't stop touching it. It's lined, so no need to wear anything underneath. The front pleat very narrow at first, but then opens wider to reveal the gauzy lining. This dress can be dressed up or down depending on how you accessorize it. It feels true or size or slightly on the larger side. It's a great maxi it wear with flats. I'm 5'8" and it hit me at my ankles. Not sure how it will hold up after laundering, but I'm considering getting in ivory too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Quality This dress was a good purchase- especially on sale. It is heavier than I thought it be, but makes for a more architectural dress suitable for work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from okay maxi-length for short ladies It's a nice looking maxi dress. The material is nice quality. I just don't like how it pleats in the front into a triangle-Its like a curtain. Other than that, its a very nice maxi and runs super big.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the money I ordered this dress both in black and white because I like how they look. I like everything about thoes dress especially their high quality. I love how heavy and thick they are, and they look very expensive. However, I think they are not over heavy or thick for summer. The only reason I give four star is the white one is one size bigger than the black one even though I ordered 00 for both of them. I am 5'1", 94 lbs, and I don't need to wear heels for the black one, also the fitting is good. The white one, on the other hand, is at least 2 inches longer also much wider. No matter what, I think the price is unbelievable lovely for such good quality dresses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from lovely maxi dress I took my usual Madewell size 2 (although I wear a 4 in most other brands) and it fit great, and I love that the neckline is high but not constricting. Also, I'm glad I won't need to get this hemmed - I'm 5'2" and it doesn't drag the floor even with flats on. It is a little loose around the waist, but I plan on belting it. I took one star off because the black fabric, while it drapes nicely, seems to attract lint easily. I may go ahead and order this in white too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy Breezy Smart I got this dress in white in a small and it fit perfectly. Not too snug. The slits on the side are very cute and adds a bit of character to an otherwise plain and simple cut. Great weekend outfit to brunch or beer circus. Had to wear nude undies but that's a given.
