Rated 5 out of 5 by from good for formal and casual occasions, very flattering! I have this in a size 0 and it's a slightly loose fit (I'm 5'3, 115 lbs and usually wear a 0 in madewell dresses). It can be dressed up or down, great for summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect work maxi Love this for work - summery but not too casual. Love the flattering fit on top, especially around the arms. I got this hemmed but otherwise perfect in size 0 for my 4'11", 105 lb frame. Great with the wood-heeled, zigzag sandals that are on sale right now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect casual summer dress I absolutely love this dress! I am 5'6" 125 lbs and bought a size 4. It fits really well, very complimentary to my shape with the gathered waist. Great light fabric for those hot summer days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maxi-lovers dream This dress is everything I love about maxis. Its flattering, comfortable, breezy, and elegant. I'm note tall, and at 5'4" sometimes madewell dresses swallow me a bit, but not this one! So pretty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable yet elegant This dress is just right. It's super lightweight and flowy so it feels like you're wearing a nightie, but the look is pretty elegant for such a casual dress. Note that it has side slits (up to around the knee) that don't show up in the photos. The fabric is even lovelier in person than the photos. I plan to wear it all summer long. Re: the fit, I'm somewhere between a 4 and a 6, depending on brand, and I ordered a 6. It's slightly large on me but in a nice way--the 4 would probably have worked too but I like the slightly loose look, and because of the waistline you don't get lost inside the dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Feminine If you like long dresses, you will love this one. It has a lovely fit but a little generous above the waist, and it's very comfortable. I bought a size 2 but normally wear a 4. I would recommend a belt to accenuate the gathered waist.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from perfect for hot summer days I absolutely love this dress. It's perfect for a warm day, the fabric is light but not see through. If you're a little busy, you'll get a weird little bump on the bust area, but it doesn't deter from how beautiful this dress hangs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Silky summer dress Lovely comfortable summer dress. Fabric is beautiful and dress is lined.Top half is oversized--order one size down. There is that funny poofy pleat in center but I would have had it taken in along with the sides/armholes. When factoring in tailoring costs of at least thirty dollars I felt that the dress was not worth over $160.00 (sales tax is high in CA). If it had been available in a smaller size I would have tried it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for tall hourglass figures This dress fit me in my usual a-line Madewell size, so I'd say it's TTS. I'm 5'8, and the hem hits about 2" above my ankle. The photos don't show it, but there are side slits up to the knee, so it's very easy to walk in and still modest. I'm a curvy hourglass, and the dress is pretty flattering. But there is a little bit of puckering from the horizontal seam over the bust. A belt at the waist to help weigh down that extra fabric helps.
