Striped Retreat Dress

Striped Retreat Dress is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect T-Shirt Dresss Easy to slip on and wear anywhere! I am 5'9" and 150 and a medium fit great. Thick material so it is not see through. Cute with a jean jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Obsessed I'm absolutely in love with this dress! I wore it last night and it's so comfy and hangs adorably. Very high quality and the weight of the fabric is very nice. I'm usually an XS in Madewell but sized up to a Small as other reviewers noted that the arms and chest were tight. I have a very small upper body and I didn't have any issues but I could see if I went any smaller I might have had a problem. Just size up if you're not sure. Otherwise, perfect dress for the Florida spring and summer months.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost, but Not Quite I ditto ktmc's review. I tried this on at the store and loved the overall style and the quality feel of the fabric, but it really tented out on me. A little more taken in would have have made it perfect. Maybe a better fit for a taller person? I'm 5'2", 113 and the XS fit quite comfortably, even though I have a wide chest and big arms.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from weird fit I sized up to a small and found the bottom portion way too baggy. If you have narrow shoulders you should try this dress on in your normal size other wise don't

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute but top runs small I wear xs in madewell tees (I'm 5'4, 130lbs) so that is what I ordered here and it was waaaay too tight on my arms and shoulders. The quality of this dress is great - nice and thick and a good amount of stretch. The bottom half fit me fine as it flares out a bit. Going to size up and hope that one fits better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Top too small I was so excited to get this dress as it is perfect for casual days! Unfortunately, the top portion of this dress is way to tight in arms and chest. I am usually an XS in Madewell tops (5'1" 112lbs) and the XS was incredibly too tight in chest and arms. Looked fine, but felt uncomfortable. I sized up to a small and while it was a little looser, it still didn't fit as comfortably as I hoped.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's cute but baggy SO I would say that the quality is great and I love the style, to be able to just casually throw on a short sleeve dress is great. However, this one puffs out a lot. I don't want something fitted, but I also don't want something that makes me look pregnant. If it was a little more form fitting it would be great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite summer dress I just pulled this dress over my head and know it will become my new summer uniform. I ordered the aztec color (the gray). The stripes are a soft charcoal color and line up along the sides of the dress. I'm 5'6" and 125 lbs. I ordered my usual Madewell top size S, and it fits just right along the shoulders and the chest. The bottom flares slightly and gives it a casual silhouette.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect everyday dress Perfect dress for everyday. You can dress up with wedges or down with sandals or tennis shoes. Fits true to size.
