I wore this for my birthday yesterday after a change in plans nixed wearing the short blue sequin number that I also rented. The style of the dress is so cute and works on those of us in our 40s! Yellow can be a challenging color for blondes - -if I had dark hair, this lemon/mustard yellow would've been super - I got used to the color, worked the accessories to make it all work, resulting in lots of compliments! More Nanette Lepore dresses please - -her designs are gorgeous!

LOVE this dress. The fabric is dressier in person-- not a cotton like as this picture. Wore it with gold earrings and nude pumps. I didn't feel like the yellow was too bright yet had enough shine. Perfect for a summer wedding. I def. wore the smaller of the two sizes I'm usually between and it fit nicely.

The dress itself was beautiful - I loved the texture of the fabric, and the color is really pretty. Unfortunately, even though I ordered a size down from my usual (an 8) the dress was HUGE on me. I would have needed at least a 4 (three sizes smaller than my usual!) to wear the dress. Luckily I rented a second option that fit perfectly!

The dress is like a ray of sunshine on a cool summer day!
I would buy this dress in a heart beat, it does run big I am 5'9, 135 lbs, 34/26/37. I ordered the 4 and the 6 and I wore the 4 with plenty of room to spare. It made my waist and rib cage look very tiny, tons of compliments on the color, it was like a ray of sunshine. Fashion tape would have helped hold the straps in the right place, but I did not get my fit kit with my order.

I LOVED this dress!!! This is definitely a dress for girls with a large bust! I normally wear a 4/6 in jeans, but my chest usually bumps me up to an 8 in dresses, and I have to belt them. I'm a 34DD, and the top fit me well, and there was just enough room in the 6, and the waist was even a bit loose, but no problem. If you don't have a large chest, order smaller for sure! Also, I loved the material and design. The picture makes the material seem thicker, but it is thin, pretty, and flowy. This was my first rental, and it was great!

This dress ran very big, I usally wear a size 2 but the 2 was very loose and the top would not hang right at all. I also did not like the dress pattern. I was very glad I ordered a back up.

Great dress, I received lots of compliments when wearing it to a summer wedding. The yellow is quite bright, but pretty. The only drawback was that the top half was very loose (kept gaping open and would not lie flat against skin) - I probably needed the smaller size (and I'm not small chested). I normally wear a size 8, but could have used a size 6 in this dress. It hit right at my knees.
