Rated 5 out of 5 by from SEXY DRESS I'm in love love love- finally a dress that I feel sexy in from Madewell! I'm petite just under 5'2 and 102 lbs and this dress is body skimming but not too tight and looks lovely on me (runs true to size - I purchased a 00). I'm not someone who can wear the over-sized dresses or little girl styles, Unfortunately those are what styles dominate Madewell. I'll be wearing this to a summer wedding and out with my friends. Thanks Madewell for making a grown up dress for when I want to feel sexy and age appropriate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful!!!!! BUT... I agree with all reviewers, completely in love with this dress. Elegant, understated elegance. Also, finally a dress that is not a bag. This dress is cut with curves in mind so it does not fit like a sac. Thank you for that Madewell!! Finally!!! Shows my curves yet drapes around them with no cling, very, very flattering ;] The most reviewers, this does not fit at all in the bust, it is HUGE!! I am wearing a size 6 dress and I am a 34 D!!!!! Love the dress enough that I will have to have altered. My tailor is going to charge me an arm and a leg for this...arrrgggg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This dress is beautiful. I debated between buying the 2 and the 4. In the end, I went for the 4. It is very beautiful. The straps are a little too long, is my issue. I am thinking too much room in the chest. I am still keeping it though. It adds curves in a good way, in my opinion, and hides flaws. It is a little plain perhaps, but in an understated, classy way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! but had to exchange size This dress is really great! It's beautiful, just as pictured, and the color is a deep deep blue. I was debating between a 2 and a 4 (I'm 5'4, 115lbs, pretty small chested). I went with a 2, but I'm exchanging it for a 0. The chest area is a little bit and the straps slide off my shoulders pretty easily. The rest of the dress fits well, so I'm sure anyone my size but with a fuller chest could easily wear the 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect dress This dress is perfect: it's body skimming, but not too tight; the back and the front are both sexy but not too low; and the length is ideal for both flat sandals and heels. I'm usually between a 2 and a 4, and I got the 2 here. (I'm 5'7", about 125 lbs., and a 34A). The chest is snug, so I'd imagine anyone with a bigger chest may want to size up. Can't wait to wear this to every cocktail party this summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STUNNING Just got this dress in the mail and it is STUNNING! I love that it's simple but so flattering and low key sexy. Also, thank you Madewell for FINALLY making a dress for those of us that have shape! I'm so over the shift/paper bag dress trend and cannot say enough how great this dress is for highlighting your figure. I've got boobs and hips and this dress is here for all of it. For reference, I tried sizes 00-4 (because sizing can be so wonky) and I ended up with the 0. I'm 120lbs. a 34D, 26 waist and 36 hips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this color and cut I ordered this after they ran out of my size 4 in a size 8 expecting the top bust to be too big and I took it to the dry cleaner alterations women and when she saw the side zipper she said it was too much work to be worth her time to take it in on both sides. I'm writing this because if anyone has a size 4, I'm obsessed with the length, color, and overall the fit is great with the lining. Or I could have gotten away with a 6...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing dress It took me three tries to get the size right on this dress, but once I did, the fit is so amazing and gorgeous. The first size I ordered was my smallest size and it was too small in the chest. The second size I ordered was a size bigger than I normally wear and it didn't do anything for my figure. My real dress size popped back in stock and I grabbed it. This was the winner. It fits perfectly and is so so sexy without being skin tight. I know this is the kind of dress that I will reach for again and again when I want to feel like a million bucks. It's so simple, but it really works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy Love this dress! It's very sophistaced and sexy at the same time. If you are large chested I would definitely size up. I'm a 32DD and normally wear a dress size 6, but I ended up purchasing an 8 in this dress! I'm wearing it to a silent auction this weekend and I'm so excited!
