Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 95 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by great fit, super comfy got this dress on sale and fell love with the high quality, weighty fabric and striking cobalt color. I am 5 ft 1 in tall, 135 lbs, and have a small bust, and athletic build. A small is a little large around the chest and hits on lower thigh. great material and really comfy. looks great with a skinny belt around the waist. October 15, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by A necessary staple! I couldn't be more satisfied with this purchase! It's not only flattering and easy to style in so many ways, but easy to care for. Highly recommend. September 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great dress I love this dress, I just wish they would have still had it in a size small when I bought it. I'm going to have to get it altered a tiny bit. Other than that it is a great fit and very comfortable but nice enough for work. August 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect My first purchase from Madewell. Great all around dress. I bought it on sale in 2 colors...coral and cobalt. Absolutely great for my casual office to wedding showers and such on the weekends. Thick cotton material is sturdy and washes well. I opted to rack dry it vs trying to put it in the dryer. I usually wear a petite large and got the large and it is a comfy fit, not too long. Plus, no one should be wearing tight clothes to the office ;) First time a dress seemed a little roomy in the bust, which is great! August 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by must have dress I bought black one at first. But it is so comfort and easy to match with jackets, I ordered the blue one which is attractive in summer. Highly recommend to have this awesome dress! August 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Dress Love this dress, perfect for work and for play...washes super easy and is just easy to wear and really comfortable! So glad I bought it. August 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect everyday work/life dress! Absolutely love this dress and just ordered a second one in black. Really comfortable, nice material, definitely great for work. Also easy to wear straight from work to go out for drinks, a win-win! I typically float between a medium and a large (8-10) and based on reviews, went with the medium and it fit perfectly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE LOVE LOVE! I bought this (and the keynote dress) about 2.5 wks ago...still obsessed with them both. I've worn this one at least 3 or 4 times already. It's a great basic to have in your wardrobe! Like the keynote dress, this runs big about a size. I'm 5'4'', 132lbs, 32D and the XS fits perfectly! I absolutely would recommend this dress...will likely buy in more colors if they get some. July 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by one of my best Madewell purchases, ever Tied with my pair of jeans and perfect chambray shirt, this is probably the best Madewell purchase I ever made. So easy, so comfortable, so flattering. Unlike the Pierside Dress, this dress successfully covers the areas around my armpits that I'm not so eager to show off. The waist hits a couple of inches above my natural waist which is really flattering for my body. And there's pockets. It's just so perfect. I got lucky and snagged this on sale for around $50, but would still consider buying if it were more expensive, it's that great. Fits TTS - I'm usually an XS in Madewell clothing and this in an XS fit me perfectly. Madewell, PLEASE restock/make this in more colors! Would totally buy the blue one if it were restocked, or a nice wine color. July 17, 2014
