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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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!

I wore this dress to a wedding in Napa and it was perfect -- everyone else was also in beautiful, bright, solid-colored dresses (but I was the only in yellow!). It really popped... but the color was not quite true to how it appears on the site. I was expecting more of a pastel yellow, but in person, this was more like a bright imperial yellow. Not the best shade for my skin tone but it worked ok.
