Perfect winter wedding dress

Loved the dress, the waist band is a little tight but overall the dress is very comfortable.

Stylist Review

Great dress for vamping up your work wardrobe! This dress works well with any bust size - a strapless bra should be worn with this. While there is no stretch to the fabric, I would size up for your backup! It comes to about mid-thigh length on a 5'4" person. The dress is fitted at the waist but there is comfortable room in the hips because of the flowy skirt. I would pair this with black heels!

Perfect Fall Dress!

Wore this dress to a fall wedding in MN. I was really in between sizes, ended up wearing the small to the ceremony and the medium to the reception so that I could move a little better. Lots of compliments!

Awkward dress

Overall, this dress is just really....awkward is the best word. The photo makes it look light and delicate when in reality it is heavy stiff. I didn't even wear it out of my bedroom, it was really not what I was expecting at all. The sleeves were way too long, the band fit well but then left extra material hanging in the chest area (and I have a large chest, 34DD and it was still baggy under my boobs). The skirt portion is also longer than pictured. The biggest disappointment was how heavy and old lady this dress ended up being; I was expecting light beautiful lace detail and it did not deliver.

This dress is so pretty!

I wore this dress to a wedding in late September and absolutely loved it. The dress is made well and I felt beautiful and elegant wearing it. If I had to give one con I would say that the sleeve material can make your arms a little scratchy, but it honestly didn't bother me at all. Pretty dress, would recommend.

The dress fit perfectly!

I am 5'2 and this dress was the perfect length for me, just above the knee. It takes two people to zip it because of the band around the waist so make sure you have help, but it was a really nice dress for a fundraising gala.

Stylish and comfy

The dress was better than I thought it would turn out. The medium was too big in the arms and made it look frumpy. The small fit much better. My friends loved the dress. It was different and fun to wear for a friends wedding!

Beautiful detailed dress!

The dress is beautiful. I only wear black, grey, navy, tans and creams, so this dress was a nice change from the normal LBD that I usually wear to events. However, I was unable to wear the dress due to the zipper on the medium. Pretty sure this dress is new, so maybe it isn't broken in yet, but I even had help getting the dress zipped, and we still could not get it. The medium fit, maybe a teeny bit too small, but the large was way too big. The large though did zip, without any issues. Beautiful dress though! High quality.

Unique dress!

I really liked this dress & got compliments but the XL sleeves were a bit long on me. I folded them up once at the wrist & no one noticed so it wasn't a big deal. The other con is that the material is a lot heavier than I thought it would be. Luckily it was freezing at the wedding! The fit was very nice & definitely a unique & beautiful dress. I felt very comfortable in it.

This was a perfect choice for a Saturday night wedding in Brooklyn! Black with flair and style.

I had thought I'd be a small, but it was a bit too tight to zip and still have room to breathe. The medium was comfortable and still fit well. I'm 53, 5'6", and a menopausal-shaped 130 lbs. I loved that this dress hid my hips and belly, while not looking like a tent. My only regret was that I forgot to bring earrings, and it really needs some statement earrings. The zipper would be impossible to pull up on your own--sticks on the fabric.

Engagement Party!

I am 5'1" and the sleeves were a bit long, but overall the dress fit great! I am a pear shape so I needed to go a size up to fit my waist so it was a little loose on top. But I loved it and it made me feel special. These measurements are not mind by the way.

Beautiful Details!

The only bad part was that I couldn't zip it by myself. This was a chilly, September weddings so paired it with tights and booties. Love the detail on top and the flow of the bottom. No complaints here!

The details of this dress were stunning. A total winner so many compliments! Paired with red heels!

I am normally a size 10-12, I wound up wearing the XL because the zipper couldn't close around the fabric in the detailed waist band. The arms were looser than I liked but otherwise this dress was a winner and I received so many compliments. Flattering fit and perfect for a evening wedding in the fall/winter!

I wore this dress to a friend's November wedding.

I loved this dress! It was perfect for a fall wedding. The detailing on top gave it a pretty, girly feel, and the fit couldn't have been better. For reference I'm 5'7, 140 and the dress came right above my knee.

The beauty is in the detail!

This dress was stunning! The contrast of lace, sheerness and the roughed skirt was perfect. The only issue with the dress was the sleeves. The size small was too tight but the sleeves fit perfect. I wore the medium and you couldn't tell the sleeves were a little large. I got many compliments and the dress is perfect for a fall/winter wedding or a holiday party!

Nice Dress for Colder Weather

The waist is fitted with no give. The zipper was hard to get up. The sleeves were a little long for a petite person, I had to roll the cuffs in. Overall the material was comfortable, it was pretty and the perfect length for if you want to dress a little more conservative but still be pretty. I paired with black leggings, but I wouldn't recommend it made the whole look too dark.

Really stood out!

Loved this dress! I got compliments all night. Happy to have sleeves for warmth. The zipper was nearly impossible to get up over the waist due to the thickness of the fabric & tiny zipper pull. My husband had to use a rubber jar opener for grip...if you live alone beware!

This was a very comfortable well constructed dress. The length was perfect. The sleeves were a bit big but it was not noticeable. I enjoyed wearing the dress to my Husband's work Christmas party. I received several compliments.

I dress was perfect

I wore this for a work party and had tons of compliments. It was my first time for rent the runway but I will definitely be a return customer. The only problem was the dress was very hard to zip where the material changed.

First Trimester Bump Wear

I wore this dress for my birthday dinner. I was 13 weeks pregnant at the time and it was very comfortable. The higher waist and flowy bottom were perfect to disguise my bump. I did think that the detailing on the top looked silver in pictures. I was surprised to see it was white when it arrived.

Pretty and classy

Pretty and classy dress. I wore it to a wedding, didn't know the family very well, and thought about wearing a non-reveling dress. The zipper is kinda tricky - ended up wearing the medium because it was hard to zip it up myself.

Very flattering dress. Loved the cut of the bottom "skirt" and the lace top was sexy and fun

I'm a medium in tops so the medium dress fit me well and I had a large as a back up. The dress is very comfortable and flattering. I wore it with a strapless bra and was able to focus on socializing and feeling confident about my outfit! Highly recommend. PS. it is one piece!

I didn't wear this to my event

The fit was average for my body type, not awful, but nothing special either. The zipper was the main issue. It was incredibly difficult to zip up, and the size was correct for me. Even with my husband's help, we could barely get the zipper up and then back down! I think others had experienced the same issue, because the zipper was starting to pull away from the fabric of the skirt. I didn't choose this dress for this reason.

Perfect for a holiday party

Fits true to size. Perfect for holiday work party. Conservative and covered top but fun and received many compliments. Sleeves are a tiny bit uncomfortable at first with the pattern material but you forget about that after a while. Very fun to dance in!

The dress was uncomfortable with the sleeves and turtle neck- mostly because I never wear this type of thing. It was a beautiful dress and was flattering. Not breastfeeding friendly.

Stylish and surprisingly comfortable

Worn with tights and black booties for a family Thanksgiving party. Considering that our main activity was eating food, this dress was actually very comfortable and well-fitted. I was a little worried about the sleeves, but I didn't find them to be itchy or bothersome in the slightest. The neckline was just a little high for my comfort, but overall I really loved this dress! I got lots of compliments, and I felt the look was classy yet sexy with the sheer overlay detail. Would absolutely rent again, probably for a more formal event next time around!
