Rated 5 out of 5 by sunshine29 Comfortable but elegant
Like the previous reviewer, I've wanted a dress like Mélanie Laurent's in Beginners for years, and I was thrilled to finally find it. This dress is made of a lovely silk, and in person the color is less orange-y than it appears in the photos (which is more flattering on me). The details are finely done, in particular the detailing down the middle of the front and the trim on the ruffled sleeves. My one caveat is that I needed a belt to really get that nipped in waist look (and to have the top part gather slighly over the waist), because without a belt the waist just kind of sagged the top half down. I think this runs on the large side of true to size--I'm happy with the zero but could probably fit into a size smaller (I'm 5'5 and 109 lbs).

Last summer I watched the film "The Beginners" and become obsessed over finding a red vintagy dress like the one Mélanie Laurent wears throughout the movie. Anyway, I was so excited to find this dress while at Madewell in Boston this past weekend with my sister and it is so perfect. It satisfied my movie dress, and I actually like it even better :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by FeminineGamine Garnet is very pretty and flattering
I took my usual size 2. I'm 5'4" (pear-shaped) and 33.5-26-37. I ordered the garnet color through the website and it's more purple-y than pictured. It's still pretty color though. I think the dress fits fairly well, but the silk could have been higher quality. It's a bit static-y, but not horrible. I did not have any fitting issues with the hips and I have full hips for my size. I'd say that the dress fits like the model pictured.
