This dress isn't too long/short. Great length, especially if you are petite (I am 5'3'' 120lbs) This was very elegant on me, and I got the yellow which was bright and fun. A very good and flattering yellow and not neon. The eyelet is very sweet. The dress nips in at the waist, not too tight on the hips or thighs. Looks great with or without a belt. Neckline is not too high, hits right under the collar bones. Great pick!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Liv76 Perfect summer dress
I've gotten so many compliments on this dress. The yellow version is striking without being too neon or over the top. The cut is flattering, and I imagine it would be on most body types, and true to size. Definitely will be wearing this all summer long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BicoastalGIrl Great summer dress
As soon as I saw this dress online I knew I wanted to order it, and I'm so glad that I did! The fit is great, I think it runs a little smaller than some Madewell dresses, but is true to size and I'm really happy with the fit. It has a fitted bodice and slight A-line skirt, a short flirty length, and pockets. The eyelet lace is modern and a really cool pattern. The dress gets even more flattering with a thin belt at the waist. The high neckline helps balance the short skirt, and will made a great backdrop for some bold jewelry as well. If you're considering this dress don't hesitate! I can't wait to wear it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by HJK25 Pretty dress but definitely belt it up
It's a pretty dress but it looks like a smock unless you add a belt to add some curvature. It runs a bit large too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anabelle18 Wanted to Love It
I really really wanted to love this dress--basically all of my non-work dresses are from Madewell, I know their sizing, so I felt completely comfortable ordering this dress online. However, when I got it, I just didn't love it. Unfortunately, I didn't decide that until after I took off the tags, but that's my own fault.
I didn't love it because for me, it just didn't fit right--the bust area was too large and the hip area was just a smidgen too tight. Maybe if I had a biggest bust (I'm 36B), it'd be a more flattering dress, but for now, unfortunately, it's at the back of my closet until I take it to the tailor's. The "lace blossom dress" in white is my go-to white summer dress now!
