Rated 4 out of 5 by LeNico Love this, but....
This dress is beautiful and the material is really lovely. I am generally a Medium in everything. But, being a 34D, sometimes things are snug on the chest and unfortunately this dress fell into that category. The front buttons pull open a little bit which is tres unfortunate. I can pull it off if I pin the section between the second and third button together, but I'm wary of how it looks. It's not the most comfortable because of that, and I was really hoping to live in it.
Also, stains VERY easily - a few drops of water left a mark.

This dress is gorgeous. I'd had my eye on it for a while, and when it went on sale I decided to take the risk and order it.
I chose a medium, because the other Madewell dress I own I had originally ordered in a large and it was too big, and I had to exchange it for a medium. The sizing chart says a medium is a 35 or 36 across the chest, which is my size (I measured right before ordering) so I was fairly confident it would fit.
Yeah, it did NOT. This dress wouldn't button by a good 8-10 inches. I was so sad I briefly considered breast reduction surgery so I could wear it. So it goes.
To be fair, it fit fine everywhere else. But then again, it's a dress so basically the only place it has to fit is the top half of my body.
Bottom line: save yourself some tears, Madewell was waaay off on the sizing chart here. If you're busty, don't bother.
