The Introduction Sweaterdress

The Introduction Sweaterdress is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit! I'm 5 "3 and the length is perfect. I'm also petite (usually a 0-2 dress size) so I went with an extra small. Works perfectly for me. I'd also recommend wearing a light shirt underneath since it can be a bit itchy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from INLOVE I absolutely love this sweater dress. I got this in grey when it was on sale during thanksgiving sale. Then I found it again on sale recently in store, and I got it in a cream too! I'm 5'2, 115 lb and I'm usually between xs-s. I'd say this dress is true to size (got it in xs)! I agree with other reviewers, it looks amazing with tight jeans and boot. I paired this grey dress with tight black denim and the ames boot, and I felt like I walked straight out of the medewell website. AMAZING! Love the oversized look and I love the hem of the skirt lands right on my calf! Very minimalist look, if you ask me. Got the cream in small but sizing isn't too far off from the xs. Definitely recommend this dress!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! I'm a 6/8 and usually a medium but the medium was huge under the arms. I returned for the small which is perfect. This is a very warm and very comfortable dress. It looks great with tights and boots. Amazing buy on sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from classic worn plain or embellished, this dress is classic yet versatile

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile piece This is a great deal on sale, as it can be worn in a number of ways: with leggings, with tights, even over pants. Super comfy, and the high-front, low-back style is work appropriate if your office is on the more conservative side. This did pill pretty quickly, but the nubby texture makes it less noticeable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wearing it all the time Purchased the light birch. Color was more depth and variation than photo suggests. As a fair, blonde, am happy with that as it makes the dress more flattering. Nice yarn and weave. Have been wearing with dark tights and tissue turtleneck. Dark colors don't show through and no noticeable pilling. Looks good with or without a belt. Could have sized down but the would have lost the looseness and drape that was intended plus a liitle length. If you are concerned about looseness suggest a belt rather than sizing down. Helps with shape in a way that preserves the look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This styling does not do this piece justice. It is GREAT! Love this! Bought two in the store and ordered another because they didn't have anymore in my size. Wear with tights and boots as a dress or as a tunic with skinny pants. Super comfy! The picture shown does not do it justice. It is much nicer looking that the way it is styled here. I would not have bought it if only looking at this picture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So many compliments! This dress is a great winter addition. It is warm and stylish. I would say order one size down because the fit is loose. The turtle neck is very big (which i love). I've gotten a ton of compliments on the dress each time I've worn it. If you're thinking about buying this dress, I say, go for it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Image doesn't do it justice! It's very flattering and crazy comfortable. It does run a bit big. I wish it came in more colors than just grey and oatmeal. I've worn it with tights and with ripped skinnies. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing dress I've gotten the most compliments on this dress. It has become my favorite dress this winter. It's comfortable and looks amazing on. It runs pretty true to size and it such a great deal. Wish it came in more colors.
