Rated 5 out of 5 by Mustard Beautiful..why is it still in stock?
I swore off strapless dresses because they never stay up and because I hate strapless bras. This is the solution! It stays up. This dress has boning and an internal back strap, and an internal bra. The fabric is thick enough that there is no nipple definition. I usually wear a strapless bra because otherwise I look flat as a board, but sans a bra, this dress is pretty complimentary.
Part of the reason it stays up so well is because it is tight. Usually I find size 0 in Madewell dresses very slightly too large and this is tight on me (in a good way). If you're interested in this, call up customer service and get them to give you the measurements of the size you're interested in. I'm sure some people would be better off sizing up. If I had larger breasts than my A cups, size 0 would not fit.
My one qualm is that, while still very beautiful in a way reminiscent of the southwest, the colors are not as vivid as the picture shows.

Why would you make a summer dress dry clean? Especially since it's obviously styled as a simple throw on kind of dress, not really workplace specific.

There is a major sizing issue with this dress. I ordered my usual size 0 and the waist fit fine, but I could not zip the dress up above the waistline. I don't have a large chest (34a) at all so I'm not sure why it did not fit. I love the color, the print, and the material of this dress, but I'm disappointed that this dress did not fit.
As a consistent buyer of Madewell size xs and 0, I would NOT recommend this dress to others, especially if you have a larger chest.
