Bistro Dress in Ridgestripe

Bistro Dress in Ridgestripe is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Head over heels My favorite dress of the summer is quickly becoming my favorite dress of the fall. It looks just as great with boots and a leather or demin jacket as it did with sandals and a belt in warmer weather. The material is soft but substantial. It holds its shape amazingly well and is a breeze to clean and care for. The scoop neckline and natural-waist definition are universally flattering and the length was perfect right off the rack. This was the first of what is now many Madewell purchases--this dress made me fall in love for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! I actually passed this dress up when I saw it on-line. However, when I saw it in the store, I really loved the colors so grabbed it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect and Versatile After much deliberation, mostly due to the price, I purchased this dress (students...remember your get 15% off!). I immediately took it with me to New Zealand...a 17 hour flight and the dress packed like a dream. It fits true to size--I bought a 2--5'1", 120 pounds, 32C/D, and wear a 2 across the board in most brands. Don't let the cost of the dress deter you--it can be worn all seasons, layering with tights and boots, a blazer, flats or wedges for summer. A must own!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality and style! This dress is great. It's super comfy and you can tell the fabric will last. The colors are bold and the style is relaxed yet fitted and flattering. I'm 5' 7" and 135 and ordered a 2. It's a tiny bit snug but it stretches a tiny bit with wear so overall a good fit. I received tons of compliments. Definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfy, stylish and cute! This dress is one of my all time favorites! It is very comfortable and form fitting with just the right amount of stretch! It has pockets which is always a plus. The first time I wore it I got so many compliments. It is a great dress to wear during the day or out at night. Super happy about purchasing this dress! It is a keeper for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute everyday dress I'm a sucker for stripes and dresses with pockets so I had to get this dress. The material is on the thicker side but not too thick so you can wear it year round. It's not too short. The skirt portion of the dress poofs out a bit at the waist in the front and back which for me is a little weird because I have a long torso-- it poofs out a little high. It's very figure flattering and looks good on my straight body but I would imagine it looking good on curvier girls too. I usually wear a size 2 in Madewell (5'4" 125lbs 32c) and this fits true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite dress This dress is my new favorite. I have it in both red and navy and the black and white. It's a fun dress that can be worn in the office (with a cardigan, maybe) or around town (with cute pumps and a statement necklace). The neckline isn't too low and the cut isn't too short. It does puff out around the belly a little, but not too much for my taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great daytime dress all year round I absolutely am in love with this dress. It is very well constructed and I love how the stripes change directions on the side to create a flattering shape at the waist. The material is a bit on the thick side, which I prefer because I don't want people to see my underthings through my dresses. The best part is that I can easily wear this during the spring/summer AND during the colder months with a pair of stockings and a blazer. I have it in the Scarborough red stripes and I adore it.
