Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super neat summer dress I read the other reviews and I am one of those who loved the dress and the material. I did however buy the dress in store so I knew what I was getting (plus I tried it on & that was my cue to purchase it). I love the fabric and POCKETS which is the whole reason why I bought it. I got a small which is my usual size at Madewell (I'm 5'2" petite, 34 D, slim build with a bit of a pudge lol!) I love the dresses here b/c they help hide some of my unflattering areas (bless you Madewell!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from wish the fabritc was lighter. this is a really cute dress—love the lace up neckline and the stripes. the fabric is heavier and stiffer than i had anticipated; if it was lighter, it would be perfect to wear all summer long. i'm also usually an XS in madewell and found the XS tight on so i will have to size up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from great dress, not so great fabric I am 5'4'' and 130 lbs with an athletic, moderately curvy build. My usual size small fit well. Dresses of this shape are usually flattering on me, but this fabric is so stiff and heavy that it completely hides my figure. This dress did no favors for my small frame and was snug around the chest (34C) since there is no give in the fabric. May be lovely on a different body type, though!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strange fit This dress looked really cute online and I love the lace up front. When I received in in the mail, however, the fabric was different than what I expected. It was much more structured and stiffer than I thought it would be and didn't move with my body. It was tight around the bust and then really loose everywhere else. Might work for a different body shape, but wasn't flattering on my small frame.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a lot of room for lovely jubblies! This dress is just fantastically made. Nice medium weight, crisp stripes. The lace up neck is really cute. However, for women with breasts to consider- beware. The fabric doesn't give at all, so I found this dress to be tight around the chest (I'm a 34 C and usually wear a Madewell size S) Everything else was very comfortable, but unfortunately, the tightness of the chest area made the dress a bit too uncomfy for me. I tried the Medium, but it looked too large - like a bag. Just love the design though - wish it worked out!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute but over priced! All of your shift dresses have side seam packets which are unnecessary and only add to the cost of the garment. They are very unflattering when you sit down and they open up - did you know that? Get rid of those pockets and bring the cost down and then it would be better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fabric is so hard I got this dress online so I wasn't able to try it on because I bought it. The fabric/cotton is very hard and it makes it not easy to wear and very uncomfortable.
