Super adorable & comfortable. Got lots of compliments!

Loved wearing this but I would probably size down next time - I was afraid the sleeves would be too tight (large arms) but I think the XL which I normally wear would have been fine!

Runs big

Cute dress, but I'd size down. I went with a medium, which fit (very flexible fit with the smocking), but there was so much excess fabric I think a small would be better. Buttons I. Front are functioning, which is great for nursing moms.

Cute but not the most flattering

Loved the color of this dress and thought it was perfect for work and a post-work dinner. However the top half was a little large and didn't make the most flattering fit.

Easy dress.

This is a great dress but I wish I had gotten an XS. Top is a bit big if you are not over five foot three.

Too big

Dress was a pretty color and pattern but way too big in the chest. I'm a 34DD so normally don't have trouble filling out dresses but this wasn't flattering

Cute casual dress

Super easy to wear and great for every day. However, I felt the waist ran very large so I'd recommend sizing down.

So cute!

Loved this Madewell dress. Wore it to work on a nice day. For my body, I should have ordered an XS. Really big in the chest and I kept having to pull it up so you couldn't see my bra.

Cute dress...wish it was smaller on top

Dress is SUPER cute. Unfortunately it is a little big on top. I am a 32D so I normally don't have an issue filling the top out but it is super loose fitting. If you are planning on wearing it out and about it is very do able. I wanted to wear this to work so I have to cover the top which took away from the dress. Overall it is a cute dress just wish it didn't hang so low.

Not a cute look

I usually wear an XL in Madewell clothing, but according to this dress a size 16 (my usual dress size) is an XXL. This dress was massive on me. Definitely size down! On top of that, the waist was very high, so it was big and short - very unflattering!

Wore this dress to an event at the zoo

The dress was super comfy but the top of the dress was very loose. Loved the design, just too loose.

Breezy dress, perfect for vacation

I loved this dress! I packed it for vacation and it looked great right out of the bag. My only complaint about the fit is that it's very low cut in the front. You could wear a cami underneath, but I don't think it would look right with the dress.

Twinned With My Coworker!

Rented a size large for the length, but that just made the top way to baggy (I'm 5'9"). I am such a fan of Madewell and I was super excited to see it on RTR. Now I don't have to pay $150 for one dress.
