Made of Neoprene

Know that the structure is due to the fact this dress material is neoprene, so super fun but not the professional dress I was looking for

Gorgeous but itchy

I loved how this dress looks but won't rent it again. World's roughest seams run up the inside arms to the armpit. It's like a very tiny cat scratching you all day.

Love this!!

This is a little dressy for everyday work, but I felt amazing in it and received so many compliments on it. It's a stretchy scuba like material. The size 8 was a little big on me and probably could have gone with a 6 but the seams on the inside (shoulders / arms / waist) were a little rough and by the end of the day a little irritating. Not terrible, but enough to make me glad they were tight on me. Overall still absolutely LOVED this dress though and would rent again!

Strange fabric

The fabric is hard to explain. It's like a wet suit material; thick and squishy, somewhat stretchy.

Head turning

Cut and color are great and attention-getters. Fabric is wetsuit material, which on the one had is stretchy and makes a super structured dress very wearable, but on the other hand doesn't breathe, and the thick seams around the arms and shoulders bothered me increasingly during the day. Very glad that I wore it once, but this one would be hard to repeat any time soon. Which makes it a perfect RTR rental.

Fabulous dress

This dress has a 1950s silhouette reimagined in a modern fabric with a bit of stretch to it. I wore it to a special work event where I was presenting and in photos / on camera - it was amazing. A definite winner. I sized up based on reviews one size. Glad I did.

I felt like I was wearing a bag.

This dress runs incredibly big, based on how it should look only "smaller" sizes should wear this. It looked awful on my size 16/18 body.

Didn't work out

It looked so beautiful in pictures... but in reality felt cheap. The waist was lower than my natural waist, making the proportions off. Additionally it's thin scuba material. I sent it back with the tags still on it.

Showstopper for work meeting.

Material is different but adds to the uniqueness of dress. I'm busty, and this dress is great fit. Compliments on dress, but seams become itchy after a while.

The texture of the fabric was unexpected and bizarre

The dress looks ok on but the scuds fabric and odd tailoring felt more like a costume than s dress. Very disappointed.

Great cut.

Awesome retro fit -full skirt super fun and different. The scuba fabric is forgiving of sitting (no wrinkles) and has memory of the shape as soon as you stand up. Great color.

Not sure where to wear

This is a very full flouncy skirt and is way puffier than shown in photos. It's also low cut. All in all it's not appropriate for work at all. Also the seams are itchy.

So scratchy! Impossible to wear.

I usually have good luck with my RTR items, but this was a total loss. Awful dress. The internal seams are unbelievably scratchy. I had it on for 2 min to try it on and had red marks under my arms! It is made of a strange wet suit like material, which is oddly poufy in the stomach area. Don't rent this one!

Weird material and itchy inside

The dress fit great but the material is a foamy material. No lining in the inside made it very itchy and hard to wear. I would have loved it if it were a different material. I just couldn't bare wearing it without the seams scratching my skin.

Very interesting fabric - almost like scuba. This flares quite a bit in the skirt - made me look bigger than I was (especially from the side)

The color is beautiful in person. The dress is well made but the material is thick and structured. I rented this in summer and it wasn't great with the heat.

Endless compliments

Being a larger size is hard finding outfits that truly compliment. I had women and men stop me in the street every time I wore this. This dress will be a permanent dress to my wardrobe.

Perfection!

Dress fit like a glove! Very classic, clean lines but a modern fabric. I can see where it would be bulky on smaller body types, but if you're a curvy pear it accentuates the good things and conceals the extra. I'll definitely rent this dress again.

Unlined, uncomfy polyester/spandex fabric, seams are scratchy inside

Uncomfortable interior seams made this unwearable for me. Either needed a liner or a different fabric. It feels like a spill-proof sofa cover. This would look great on someone who wants to de-emphasize a curvy lower half - it is quite "poofy" on the bottom half with a lot of extra fabric and strategic pleating. Great royal blue color. I returned without wearing.

You get used to the itch

The length and fit of the dress is lovely. Someone mentioned that it felt a little fancy for work, which it is a bit but you can make it work. The neoprene material is light and fun. The inside of the arms was a little itchy at first, and I thought it was going to drive me nuts, but I forgot about it after 15 mins.

The material is very In usual. This dress does not have a liner so the material was itchy and uncomfortable to wear.

Itchy and runs a little big

Clearly this is not for me.. fabric is super itchy against the inside seams, definitely runs a little big, but I think even then this would have been "too much". And my husband said I looked like spaceship..

Loved this dress! Thought the scuba material was going to be weird, but it was incredibly comfortable and I received so many compliments on the dress. It was perfect for the work cocktail reception! Can't wait to rent it again!

Really made out of scuba material

Pros: Beautiful color, good design for someone who wants to look like they have hips Cons: Scuba material, scratchy where it buttons on the inside, made my hips looks twice the size they really are. Runs big. I didn't end up wearing as it was too big.

Odd material, large fit

Most of the time, a size 8 is perfect- some designers I size up to a 10. But this size 8 was huge. I think part of it was the material - It was like a thick, soft stretchy material which sounds comfy and maybe would have looked nice if I'd dropped down a size or two. But it felt odd, so I probably won't try it again. The V-neck was also just low enough that I'd need to wear a cami underneath to wear it to work.

Itchy

The stitching on this dress is very itchy. I didn't wear it because I couldn't keep it on for more than 5 minutes. The shape is super cute and I would have loved to wear it, although it ran a little big in the waist. This dress would be considered super high fashion for the area I live in, so I wouldn't have been able to wear it to work.

Itchy & unwearable

The material is neoprene - like a scuba outfit but the edges are rough and anywhere an edge touches your skin it's so itchy that it's unwearable. Also made me look a lot bigger than I am.

Did not go out in this dress.

Read the reviews and thought "hey, everyone has their own preference! Maybe I'll like the fabric or fit." Wrong, I was so wrong. BELEVE the reviews! Strangest material ever! Strange in a terrible way, not a lovingly unique way. I felt like I was in a train wreck -wanted to take it off immediately. But also, could.not.stop.looking.at.it. I wondered "How could I make this better?" The answer was "No way. Take it off and dont look back."

I did not leave the house in this dress.

The material was bizarre and very thick. The fit was not good for anyone with a large bust line. It was not attractive in any way.
