Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Has great features it has a really comfortable texture and the color is not that red, but i like it. October 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lower waistline for tall-ish ladies I'm 5'8" and waistlines of dresses often hit above my natural waist. This one sits lower on my actual waist. Normal madewell size fits just right - skims body, can be tied without too much material bagging around midsection. However, arm hole openings are a bit snug, which is unusual. Snug enough to be a bit annoying when wearing. 100% silk - madewell never skimps on quality materials. It's a keeper. September 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by size up if you want the fit in the photo I bought this dress is fresh blueberry. I wanted the bottom to fit loosely (like in the photo) so bought a size S (5'6", 120 lbs). The tie goes all the way around the dress so it's easy to adjust the waist and looks nice. The color especially is amazing - it's not quite navy and not quite purple. August 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simply elegant Beautiful dress! Elegant and effortless for summer. The only thing I would note about this dress is that the red color is not actually red in person; it's more of a brick orange. July 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by nailed it I was slightly concerned that this dress would gap at the buttons on top or have too much fabric on the bottom, but it is basically perfect. pockets? check. adjustable waist? check. length fit for an adult human? checkkk. versatile color? yep! my ONLY tiny complaint is that the armholes seem a little snug to me. I'm 5'7" / 150 lbs and I got the medium. July 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great summer dress I purchased this in the blueberry color - which is slightly darker than my monitor displayed when ordering online, but it is still very rich and a beautiful color. The fit is great - I am an hourglass shape and the floaty silk with the drawstring middle is very flattering. I will be rockin this dress all summer long. July 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this dress When I ordered this dress, I was concerned that it would look too baggy. Not so. I plan to wear this in my upcoming engagement pictures. July 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful colors, well made, flattering I got this dress on final sale in the mail and didn't like it the first time I tried it on, so I reluctantly hung it up in my closet until I was late for work one day with very limited options (forgot to do laundry)...so I threw this dress on again with earrings and was SHOCKED at how beautiful it actually was. I must have been having a really bad day the first time I tried it on because this dress cinched perfectly around my waist, which really flattered my figure, and the deep blueberry color really brought out my eyes. The backside of the dress is nicely lined so I don't even have to worry about anyone seeing anything back there, even with the silky fabric. I don't think I've ever heard, "WOW you look FANTASTIC today!" as much as I did when I tried this dress on again. For reference, I'm 5'6", ~160lbs and ordered the L and it was PERFECT! September 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by pretty but not as flattering as expected the material is fantastic, but the belt falls a little below my natural waist so it's not as flattering as I was expecting it to be. September 19, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by White buttons! This is a great summer silk dress. Be warned - as the other reviews have also said, this is not a true red. Definitely more of a brick red / deep burnt orange. Also worth noting - the buttons are actually white. So if you are like me and enjoy having a few buttons undone, you can see the white very clearly against the red and it looks a bit 'tacky'. I'm surprised they didn't use red buttons. True to size - I purchased a Small and I am 5'8", 135 pounds. I ended up returning and switching this for the blue color based on the button issue, but overall great flow and sits well. August 10, 2014
