Rated 5 out of 5 by Glamazon An actual maxi dress for someone who's long of leg
I got this dress in "Almost Black" at the end of the season for an upcoming vacation to Mexico. This is my 5th Madewell dress and I have yet to be disappointed. It is beautifully made, fits perfectly( just grazes the top of my foot,) and I have to confess is the first real "Maxi dress" I have ever owned. I'm a little over 5'10 inches tall, 158lbs with long legs and a short waist which means most maxi dresses are midi dresses on me. I love this dress so much I already wore it to a fancy wine dinner . It not only looks lovely, it's super comfortable and easy to wear. I heart this dress. For realsies.

So happy I ordered this dress in the black, stunning embroidery colors that show up beautifully on the black. The fit is flattering, and this dress works well on any age group. Looking forward to wearing in Mexico! True to size, I'm 5'7", 140 pounds, went with a large. Length and fit perfect

This is an incredibly comfortable, go-to summer piece that I wear both dressed up and casually. And I'm not the only one who loves it...I was at a popular yet remote restaurant in Los Cabos, Mexico and spotted two other people wearing it. Clearly, this is the "IT" dress of the summer!

This dress looks way better in person than online. I bought the black since they don't carry the white in store, but I think the black is a better purchase for me anyway. Maxi dress hems tend to drag a little on the ground no matter what you do, so I imagine the white would pick up a lot of dirt. The embroidery on the black really stands out. I'm 5'4 1/2", 112 pounds, and the XS fits perfectly but runs a couple of inches too long. I don't find there to be too much fabric around the middle, or anywhere else, and the halter neckline is really flattering and striking. It's a little steep at full price, but I bought it to wear to a wedding brunch in wine country so I considered it a special occasion dress. FYI the tag says "machine wash cold with like colors or dry clean if preferred" so I spot washed in the sink and hung it over the tub to dry. Well, the black dye ran and stained my tub! The tag should say dry clean only.

I love this dress so much! I am 5'9", about 125/130 and I purchased a size 2. This hits me right below the ankle bone, like on the model. I have been searching for Maxi dresses for so long, and this one is perfection. I look like a elegant model in it!

I am 5'8" and 140lbs. Medium fits perfectly. I wear with a silk tank and it is perfect for running around town or a Friday office meeting. I have also worn it for an evening at Disney World. It is very flexible and comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pittchick4676 So pretty and comfortable!
This is a perfect breezy and light summer maxi dress. The fabric is so soft and comfortable and it moves beautifully. I found the fit in the waist to be a bit loose, but I think that's the design of the dress...it still cinches my waist a bit and the top is very flattering, and I was still able to take my usual size XS. I did find it too long for my 5'4" frame...I will have to get it hemmed. The embroidery is very well done, no strings hanging or loose ends. I'm very happy with this!! definitely recommend!
