Rated 5 out of 5┬áby AmandaK11 Flattering Frock
This dress is nothing short of adorable. I'm 5'-3" and athletic built. Normally I wear a medium in Madewell and size 6 in general. I bought the black color is a size small and it fits perfectly.
The dress is roomy, but in a sexy tomboy kind of way. The pin tucks are flattering at the waist and the hem falls just above my knees. The weight of jacquard is very nice and holds its shape well.
I can't wait to dress this up with a pair of black wedges for work!

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby murray123 I want to like this dress so badly
This dress has almost everything that I look for in a summer dress: it's cotton and can be machine washed, it's casual while still being (ostensibly) adorable, IT HAS POCKETS.
What it doesn't have: shape. Or, rather, the shape is extremely unflattering. I am five feet tall, about 115. I got an xs. This dress is so humongous. But it is more than just humongous. It also has a really odd kind of puffiness, right around the midsection, before tapering a little below. Just what I'm looking for: the appearance of a bigger belly!
It's also too long, a little, but I'm just five feet tall so I don't blame the dress for that.
In short: Cotten! Pockets! Puffy belly.

Rated 2 out of 5┬áby Ldot Problematic sizing/fit
I'm usually a M in Madewell dresses and even the XS was too large on me. I don't mind a slightly oversized dress but the fabric is shapeless and somewhat stiff. Much like another reviewer here, I felt it was a little hospital gown-ish, even in black.

Rated 2 out of 5┬áby NYG108892 Cut too large
I understand it's supposed to be a stylized "kimono" fit but the medium was twice as wide as I am, and also not at all nipped in at the waist. So you would need to be kind of lanky to pull off this shape. In my opinion this runs large even after accounting for a "slouchy" fit.

Rated 2 out of 5┬áby natbat Like wearing a paper gown
So cute on the model but when I tried it on, it was too big and it looked like I was wearing a paper gown from the doctor's office. I'm typically a small/size 4, but this didn't fit like any of their dresses. Bummer!

Rated 2 out of 5┬áby Merr Runs extremely large
The sizing is way off for this product. I ordered a Small, it was like I was wearing a Large. I'm not sure if even an Extra Small would fit.
I normally wear a small from Madewell, perfectly, the length, waist, arms, everything.
I really hope they aren't getting sloppy with their sizes, because Madewell is usually on the few places I can order from online and not worry about how it's going to fit.
