Fit and Sizing
When taking measurements for this dress, we recommend paying attention to bust and rib cage measurements.
Please note that the embroidered lace bodices are not stretchy. We are unable to order additional fabric, so please order with enough room in the bodice for the best fit.
Hem Madeline after the wedding for a fun addition to your wardrobe!
The model pictured is 5’7” and wearing 3” heels. She is wearing a size 4 dress.
Fabric and Care
Madeline is made from a chiffon fabric which is comfortable to wear and similar in quality to silk, but much easier to clean and care for. The embroidered bodice is also surprisingly easy to care for, and requires no special cleaning. This dress can be dry cleaned, but can also be washed regularly at home on a delicate cycle. Best of all, the exceptional quality of the flat chiffon means Madeline will hold up over multiple washes so you can make the most of your dress.
I had a quite difficult time picking out which dress to choose as a bridesmaid in an upcoming wedding as I feel so many of the options are beautiful! I am a big fan of lace and went with the Madeline which I just received in the mail and I love. The dress came 1 month prior to the expected ship date. My only complaint is it is a little larger than expected and I did make use of the sizing chart. Although larger is preferred to small as it can be altered, but I now worry about the price of alteration with the lace. Overall though, I am still pleased with the process and my choice of dress!
It is cute. Go by the size the person NORMALLY wears not their measurements then go next size up if they fit sometimes dont.
Ordering was easy, from the at-home try-ons to sizing and purchasing online. Delivery time was reasonable and came right when it was expected to ship. The price was reasonable considering the quality of the materials and there are frequent sales/discounts as well. The dress will need some alterations, however that was expected prior to ordering. LOVE the dress!!!
Looks great but too long
Love the dress but there were no measurements I was supposed to send and the dress was about a foot and a half too long. Not a hard fix but always cost extra to get alternated.
Wore this dress for a friends wedding, and it was perfect. I am a chesty person and I had no issues. Pockets were wonderful and you couldn't see my phone and stuff in my pockets at all!
Excellent from start to finish. I speak very highly of this company.
very pretty! I love the lace
Such a pretty dress!
Love this dress! It needs a lot of alterations because I’m kind of short, but the waist fit great. I’m a little disappointed in the stitching on the bodice. One side looks much thicker than the other right at the chest area. I would’ve liked to send it back, but the wedding is coming up. The material is good and the dress is beautiful.
Love this dress!
This dress is very flattering and beautiful! At home try on was great and the dress arrived exactly when it said it would!
Love the halter style of this dress!
I love the halter style of this dress! The slate blue is a beautiful color! The dress is very long so it needs to be altered. It was a little challenging picking out the right size but I loved the ease of the at home try on system!
Beautiful Dress but Loose Closure
The dress is beautiful—the fabric is great quality, the fitting is as listed on the website. However, the closure that clips at the top of the zipper broke the first time I put my dress on, as did the closure of my friend’s dress who is also a bridesmaid. Overall, I was impressed with the dress, I just wish the closure was sewed on better!
Threading poorly sewed on
I am a little frustrated since the first time I went to try on the dress, the threading that hooks one of the straps ripped off. For a dress to sustain a wedding of 5 hours it couldn't last me even 5 minutes. Luckily it's an easy fix but frustrating nonetheless.
Beautiful dress sizing way off
I did a lot of research before purchasing the dress. I am pear shaped 5,9 190lbs and usually wear a 12/14. I knew I would need alterations but all things considered I was very disappointed with the sizing and size charts. Based on the description and advice from CS I was advised to go with the size that matched the widest part of my body (it's my thighs) which according to the size chart would have brought me to an 18!! Went with a 16 because I was in between sizes and really wish I went with the 14 or maybe even 12. If I had more time I wish I could have tried a sample. Or it would be amazing if you could order 2/3 sizes and keep the one that works best.... oh the joys of being a bridesmaid
I ordered this dress because I am in a wedding this summer. Shipping was super fast- arrived many days before estimated arrival and the quality of the dress was great! Everything looked great until I tried it on- the waist size was way too smal and the bust size was way too big :( all of my bridesmaids for my wedding this fall have ordered dresses from Kennedy Blue, so I really hope they will turn out great and that the fit on those is perfect.
