DONT EVEN BOTHER IF YOU ARE PETITE!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Date
I guess I should have assumed that a sheath type dress is not something you can rent without trying on when you are 5 feet and relatively thin. I loved this dress online. And I had the image in my mind to wear it with awesome black tights black booties and a great black jacket. But when it arrived and I tried it on my boyfriend and I started laughing. It was gigantic! There was really nothing I could have done to make it better, besides grow a couple inches! I love this dress but I absolutely do not recommend to anyone who is not tall!! lesson learned: always rent a backup!

Great for an outdoor party.

Very comfortable and stylish. I'm short and curvy so not all baggy dresses look good on me, but this one was super flattering. Definitely go a size down.

Wore it for my birthday party.

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I'm 5'1 so lengthwise it didn't fit the way it fit the model. Wearing it as intended was impossible, I had to pin the back and wear a belt. Despite that, I still enjoyed this dress and I think my temporary alternations were definitely worth it. I liked this dress a lot. Loved the print

Comfort & style

I wore this for my casual engagement party and felt ridiculously comfortable and stylish! It was VERY clingy when I got it out of the package, but running a dryer sheet over it fixed that.

Love the pockets!

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
The XS (which I wore) was huge. I had to belt it in order to not feel like I was wearing a sack. The XS was missing the white tank liner that is supposed to go on the inside, but I wore nude underwear and it wasn't too see through. It was very comfortable and light for a hot day in the city. The pockets were great!

Runs large

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for a bridal shower. I'm 6 months pregnant and I was looking for something cute to wear outside of the 6 outfits I own and can currently fit into. Unfortunately, the size medium that I had ordered was unavailable and I only received the large. and boy was it large. Even with my constantly growing baby bump there was no way I could have worn this dress. Pre-pregnancy, I would have needed a small no question about it. A cute dress with a pretty pattern but there was no way I would have gotten away with this dress. too bad!

Boxy and staticky

Size worn: NONE
Rented for: Party
I did not end up wearing this dress. The fit was quite boxy which I knew going into renting it, however it also was incredibly staticky so the dress didn't fall as it should.

Comfortable & cute!

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
The fit is of a tunic, as shown in the image, and I would suggest wearing it with a jacket over it to provide a bit of shape. Also make sure to wear something underneath, it is a bit see-through and static-y. Also, I am very tall, and it was the perfect short length, would imagine its much longer on someone shorter. Overall true to size and image, very comfortable for a long day of wear, and I received many compliments.

Fun summer dress

Size worn: S
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Date
This is a cute shift dress. The fabric is very lightweight. It's just fitted enough in the shoulders to have a nice shape but loose enough everywhere else to be very comfortable. With heels, it was just barely long enough for me to still be appropriate - no bending over, for sure. I am usually between and 6-8 but the small was definitely the right size for me - the M would have been huge.
