Midi Column Dress

Midi Column Dress is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty & easy I love this dress! I love that I can throw it on and run around after my little kids and still be covered, but look stylish at the same time. It will be perfect for hot AZ summers, but I'm excited to wear it with a jacket or sweater & Billie boots for fall too. As far a sizing, I got both the XS and XXS and the XS was more of the cool, easy fit (while still flattering my shape) I was going for. I'm 5'2" and 118 lbs so I'd say it's true to size, as I also wear XS in the whisper tees. The fabric is a little bit scratchy and I'm not a huge fan of the synthetic blend, but overall I'm very pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Peezy I need this dress in another color! The fit is relax and easy. This dress is perfect for spring and summer. If you want a dress you can put on and go; get the column dress. You won't regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Fall! My local Madewell didn't have this dress, but they were kind enough to order it for me! I purchased this dress for my upcoming trip to Europe because of the weight and length; long, but not too long. The dress does not disappoint. Super soft, not sheer, comfortable, but looks put together. I ordered a L, but probably would have been fine in a M, but I didn't want it clingy and I find sometimes this fabric shrinks a bit when I wash it; even though I don't put it in the dryer. This dress is a really pretty color and I know I will wear it a lot throughout not only the Summer, but the Fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering and comfy I adore this dress. The fabric is so soft and comfy. The weight of the dress is just right for transitioning from spring into summer. It looks great with sneakers or gladiators or even ankle boots. I wore it with a jean jacket but it will be terrific alone on hotter days. The length is good even for petite girls like myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this dress! The fabric is very soft and it washes well. It's my new go-to dress. It can be dressed up or down -- I usually wear it belted. I wish it came in more colors. When I went back to get the other color it was already sold out. Please bring it back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Dress This is a nice dress, but I don't think you should size down. I normally wear XS, but since most of the Madewell reviews said to size down, I ordered XXS. The dress does fit, but the point of the dress is to be loose, and I would like it to be just a tad bit looser. I am not sure if I will bother with exchanging for the XS or just keeping the XXS. For reference, I am 5'6, weigh 116 lbs. with a bra size of 34D.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from midi column dress I'm 5' 7", about 130 lbs, and wear a 34C bra. I'm usually a 6/medium in dresses and would wear a medium according to the size chart but ordered a small in this dress. I think the medium would have looked sloppy and I'm happy with the fit of the small. It skims my body without being tight and the dress isn't too fitted around my chest. The hem hits me a few inches below the knee and the slits come to just above my knee. I ordered the heather cabernet and it's a very pretty, rich color. I don't think the material is particularly see-through even though it looks somewhat translucent in the model picture. The dress looks really cute with a chambray shirt over it. Looking forward to wearing it on my travels this summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Comfy Everyday Dress Last year I got one of these sleeveless dress and I loved it. When his comes out I decided to order it right away. I bought the heather gray color. It is not see-thru at all. I am normally an XS or Small in madewell clothes but with the loosing feel dress, I always try a size down so I bought XXS and it fits perfectly fine, it still gives you that comfy feel though. And it still runs a little bit large. I am 5'3" and 120 lbs. a must have for this Spring and Summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought both colors I. Love. This. I usually shy away from jersey dresses, afraid they'll be to clingy in places I don't want to highlight (see: the belly that carried 3 kids). But this dress is amazing. Soft, weighty enough not to cling, light enough that I can wear it during the summer. It feels like I'm wearing pajamas, but I got compliments from strangers the first time I wore it around town. The armholes are a tad low, but the way the dress is seamed, it's easily fixable if that bothers you. I'm 5'4", and it hits me right where it hits on the model. Madewell, make this in more colors. Please.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress for comfort and travel. I bought this for my daughter who will be traveling internationally soon. It is lightweight and cool with a modest yet modern look. She loves it!
