Eyelet Ruffle-Front Blouse

Eyelet Ruffle-Front Blouse is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very classy shirt It actually looks better in person than in the pictures. The ruffles are perfectly placed so they don't create the illusion of a bigger figure. It is feminine and classy. I usually buy XS, and I'm a 34 C, this fits ok, but for ladies with fuller chests, size up. I'm staying with the size because of the overall fit, but it kinds of opens a bit in the chest part (will have to use a safety pin).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Cute, Runs Small This top looks great on! The style is cute, but the black color makes it more chic than your average eyelet top. I am 5'4", 120 lbs and bought an XS (which is my normal Madewell size). I debated getting a S, since this top does run slightly small, but ended up going with my normal size. Going a size up made the ruffle a tad "busty." I will say that the sleeves tend to be long on me normally, and these sleeves are barely long enough... warning to long-limbed ladies! Overall, very cute!! I recommend your normal size or one size up depending on your height and personal preference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feminine touch for the fall season Gorgeous shirt. My style is on the tomboyish side with a hint of bohemian flare and this shirt is the perfect dose of femininity without being overly "girlie". The shirt is a nice length, perfect with high rise or even a slightly low rise jean. The material is 100% cotton, soft to the touch and a strong texture which is wonderful for a blouse because I can throw it in my washing machine on the delicate cycle. The ruffles frame and drape the collarbone and shoulders lovely. I am excited to wear this alone on warmer days or with a cardigan over it on a chilly day. The eyelets are see-through as the previous reviewer noted, so I would also suggest a tank top underneath for a more modest look. I adore this blouse very much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Ruffle Eyelet Shirt I've been searching for a ruffled eyelet shirt that doesn't make my shoulders look too big for a very long time and I've finally found it! This shirt is very well made and I like how the sleeve cuffs are thinner so it's easier to roll up and not look bulky. The length is perfect for tucking in (although this would not be the type of shirt you tuck into a thin skirt like a silk skirt because it will bulk). The material feels very nice and dense like an eyelet shirt should feel. I tried this on with a nude bra and you can notice it through the holes, so I would suggest wearing a black bra.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satement Love this shirt. It's a easy fit with a statement. Just be prepared to wear a nude bra for the cut outs (which I love).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fall transition top! Lucky enough to find this in stock and on sale! Definitely runs small - I sized up to a Medium. I like that it's not super fitted and slightly roomy on sides; enough to move around in and wear tucked in or untucked. For myself, I could not have imagined this top any smalller as it may have felt more restricted. Ruffles are not overwhelming and add some character. Can't wait to pair with my MW jeans and some ankle boots. Would definitely recommend this top, if it goes back in stock... For reference: 5'4 and 105 to 107 lbs. My regular MW size: XXS or XS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cutest feminine top I can not say enough good things about this top! It did not stand out to me online. When I went in store, I randomly tried it on with a bunch of other things not with much expectation. So flattering and beautiful! I wear a tight black shirt under, and have received so many compliments on this top. It's an easy dress up shirt when you want to have some style and look pretty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So so cute, but holy heck does it run small I was so excited when I saw this online. I've been looking at shirts in this style for a while from different brands and was really excited to see this from Madewell. But... I was so so disappointed when it arrived and it was cut SO small!! I ordered a large as I'm normally a medium (fitted) /large (comfortably loose) in the Courier shirt and the Central shirt. This one is definitely cut teeny and it felt more like a small/medium :( It also needs to fit looser and flowy for the eyelit design to be flattering. May order an XL to see if the fit is better, but not sure yet :/

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best ruffle blouse I've tried on a lot of these ruffle blouses the past few months, and found Madewell's version to be the best. I can be a S or M at Madewell and preferred S in this, so I disagree that it runs small. However I have had an issue with the button at the bust popping open (36C), though that may be caused to some extent by my cross body bag. Still that is my only major complaint with the top. I think it's a great fabric, wonderfully balanced in style and proportions. Very flattering.
