Gallerist Ponte V-Neck Dress

Gallerist Ponte V-Neck Dress is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic work to fun dress This dress is perfect for work into cocktails or dinner. The fabric is thick enough to work in cold weather with a blazer and tights or in warm weather on its own. It also has enough stretch to be super comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dress for the small busted! Bless you Madewell for making tiny dresses. I'm a 28A/30AA so the XS dresses in many brands are way too big in the top for me. This dress is still a little baggy, but because of the way it's structured it looks good anyway. So pleased! And, as others have noted, it is machine washable and not dry clean only.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, well made The v-neck is cut at a right appropriate place. The material is thick and comfortable, warm enough for au/win/spring, while it may be too hot to wear in summer. The picture is accurate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very cute/classy. Love the ribbed fabric, easy care instructions (machine washable), navy blue color, v-neck (Madewell has so many twee, conservative necklines and a nice v-neck is a welcome change), length (not too short). I would say it runs small. I always wear an XXS/00 at Madewell and the XS, while still too big, was not as much too big. Still, I wish Madewell had made this in an XXS so that it would hug my waist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING so comfortable and versatile. i've worn it to work twice this week!! I bought it in navy and it works with black, too. I expected it to be a little baggy but it is absolutely perfect!! I love that it is machine washable, too

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great, versatile dress I was really surprised when I saw this dress in the store - the ribbed fabric and the seaming are really lovely, and it looks great on! Online I think it looks kind of meh and had passed it over right away, but in person it's really cute! I got my usual size and it is a good length - could even be work appropriate with a nice sweater or blazer. I'd say it's definitely worth a try if you're looking for a comfy, versatile dress that you can wear over and over for all kinds of occasions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a flattering piece! I'm puzzled by that last reviewer that lamented about this dress being dry-clean...My tag on my Navy ponte v-neck dress says machine wash cold. So if you were put off by the dry cleaning bill for this dress, don't's definitely machine washable. That being said, I'm usually not attracted to simple dresses with no pattern, but this dress is now one of my favorites. Not only is it comfortable, but it's SO figure flattering and chic looking. It looks great with an oversized cardigan and tights as it does just on it's own for the warmer months. I'm so very pleased with this dress that I'm considering the red color too! Definitely pick up this may seem to be a basic, plain dress, but you will feel like a million bucks when you put it on. Great price and great quality!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flattering and Pretty This dress is very flattering on my shape. I am 5'8. I can dress it up or dress it down. I'm very happy with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little too short This dress was an inch or two too short for me. I am 5'7" so I think it would look better on someone shorter. I wouldn't wear it casually, much less at work. The style is cute, quality is ok (a bit overpriced). If it were an inch or two longer I would've kept it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dry Clean Only! I bought four of the ponte dresses from the Fall to wear to work and was very excited that they were machine wash (I have washed them multiple times and not had a problem). Now, I am really disappointed to see that the new dresses are dry clean only! Please bring back the nice thick ponte machine wash dresses!
