If you have curves rent this dress

This dress has the feel of spandex, thin material, every dimple will show through unless you wear pantyhose or knee length tights underneath, which I did and it worked out great. For your reference I wore the size L, I'm a size 12. I would rent this dress again.

I didn't wear the dress--too tight.

Very clingy fit--on someone curvy, I didn't think it was appropriate for work.

Loved this for a work event!

This is a beautiful dress for formal work events, and very different from other dresses. I want to caution anyone who doesn't like tighter dresses that show the lower stomach: it clings and is unforgiving and tight on that area

An easy way to look pulled together for work -- turned out to be a compliment-catcher

First, while this is technically a dress it's actually only sewn together for a few inches in center front. This makes it a little tricker to get off and on, but since the material is stretchy it's not a big deal. The dress' strong lines, interesting draping in the front, and rich color drew me toward it and seemed to be what others loved, too! Stretch material is quite thin so I wore a slip to avoid cling and sheerness in sun. Re size/length: I'd say TTS, but I have straight hips. Top was generously cut, full bust was fine; skirt is fairly straight so if your curves are more front-to-back than side-to-side maybe start TTS, otherwise you may want to consider sizing up. Though I'm 5'4 I have a *really* high waist, so while skirt was a midi it didn't fall as long on me as it would on someone with a more typical waist.

Easy and Comfortable!

I wore this dress to work and it easily transitioned to after work. It is figure-hugging but appropriate for all occasions. I would definitely rent this again. (And it's super comfortable!)

AMAZING. comfortable and elegant

the fabric looks like crepe - elegant and professional and expensive looking - but it's actually stretchy. I ordered a size up (L) since the skirt looked fitted and I have hips... not sure if this was necessary. I think a medium would have been fine, but so was the large. I got this for a work event, and I never want to let go of it! It looks like a chic cocktail dress, but it feels like you're in your pajamas. So comfortable and perfect. Great color too.

Cute but not for me

It was a good attempt but the style was just too frumpy on me. The fit was true to size, I just didn't like it personally but it might be great for someone else.

Great daytime option to dress up or down

The fabric is a soft and stretchy material that is super comfortable. Loved the contrast of the tight skirt and flowy top, was perfect for a conservative event where I still wanted to wear something stylish. The length makes it appropriate for work but the skirt is a tightish fit, so it's not all business.

Beautiful, unique style, but runs large

Love the not-quite-two-piece set up of this dress; made it super comfortable. Fabric and color lovely, but the Small was WAY too big. Felt like I was in a pillowcase. Others have commented on lack of camouflage for bellies, but perhaps because this was so big on me, I didn't have that problem. Was not really able to wear.

STYLIST REVIEW

So comfortable! I usually wear a size 4 and the size Small fit perfectly. This dress is so easy to dress up or down. This would be perfect for any bust size since you can wear it with a standard bra. The dress is fitted but has plenty of stretch, I would pair it with nude heels and a statement necklace to dress up!

Perfect Fit!

This was amazing! I usually wear a large and this was a medium... I think I could have done a small but this was sooooo sooooo good! Loved it. This style was perfect for me and I didn't need shapes ear. Very comfortable

Very comfortable and flattering

This dress is so cute and comfortable. I have worn it for work and even though it is hip hugging, there is a longer piece of fabric that covers the bum so it is work appropriate. If you have a little bit of a tummy you will probably need some Spanx as it does highlight it. Very comfortable and doesn't wrinkle easily

LOVE! Comfy & perfect!!!

First of all sorry I look awkward in the pic lol.. I took it at work & was trying to be inconspicuous. I LOVE this dress! I'm tempted to buy it! It fits so comfortably and is really flattering! After reading other reviews I decided to size down to an XS and I'm glad I did!! It fit perfect!! I'm pretty busty, but had absolutely no issues there! It felt loose and airy at the top while still looking tailored. The skirt portion forms perfect around hips and curves... but the stretchy material makes for a comfy fit! Hope y'all love this dress as much as I did! :)

Great work dress. Sexy but stays within the lines

Sexy fit, clingly material. Loved the two piece look, didn't live my stomach pooch showing as much but a little spanx helped make it work. Very flattering in the booty area...clingy in all the right ways. Loved that it looked super conservative (by definition) but made me feel super sexy (in the way that it fit). A great look for curvy girls!

I loved this dress but couldn't wear it. The material is lovely, flows wonderfully. Great color.

Needs a flat stomach as the "tucked in" look at the front highlights the tummy.

Comfortable, Beautiful Dress

Besides the beautiful color and material, the best thing about this dress is that it is connected in the front, but it appears as if the shirt is perfectly tucked and draped. With a large chest, this sounds like an easy task, but it can be extremely difficult. I would rent this again for work or a date night.

Comfortable, flattering and looked great with a scarf!!

Elegant and was perfect for the occasion - daytime and cocktail. I would wear a slip instead of shapewear - the material is thin and would show the dreaded "girdle line". The line of the dress and color were terrific. I wore a lightweight scarf for day and a long gold necklace for dinner. It is perfect for a dressy but not too dressy work event and it was very comfortable and feminine.

Neat silhouette, but not for me

The dress is a nice color and the fit runs true to size. I was no a fan of how the back of the top draped over my butt. The front was flattering and the skirt was really comfortable. Also, the skirt length was good. Because I have a larger chest, have volume in a top on the back just isn't pleasant to look at.

Perfect for a wine and dine!

Wore this for a rehearsal dinner at a winery and loved it so much I wore it to a dinner a week later! So comfortable, easily transitioned from day to night, beautiful color, great for professional cocktail event. Literally no downsides to this dress... And it's fun to accessorize!!! Would buy if I could!

I rented this to try it out for a wedding I'll be in in August, it is the forerunner.

1) It's comfortable. 2) I was complimented a bunch. 3) The fit is a little odd...The bottom half fit well, but the top part of the dress could have been sized down...I know it's supposed to be billowy, but it still seemed slightly too big. I will probably try the small in the meantime. I wore it to church to try out and it was a hit.

Unique, flattering, comfortable

The fitted skirt portion of the dress and more loose-fitting top was very flattering. The skirt was a great length for my 5'7" frame, and I got many compliments. Will likely rent this one again.

Really comfortable dress.... Clingy in the right places.

I loved this dress. I wore it on a work trip to China. It was 100 plus smog and the dress was nice and light. My only issue was that my Chinese colleague asked if I was hiding a baby bump :(

Conference to post-conference drinks and party

Was perfect as a work outfit (wore with nude heels and a long gold necklace). Was appropriate for business meetings but also fun for a night out afterwards. Packs and travels really well! The bottom part though is very very fitted. I would recommend spanx or a slip - I didnt have mine with me and had to be very careful re: what underwear to wear and was v conscious of my belly by end of night...

Very different design, super comfy!

I wore this to work and was incredibly comfortable all day and received tons of compliments. The only cons I saw with this dress was that it is fairly tight throughout the skirt so if you're in a hurry to get somewhere you won't be able to walk very fast :)

Loved the concept of the dress - edgy and Classic at the same time

The top attaches only in the front, leaving the back to flow or hang straight down, and keeps you cool. The bottom half is stretchy materials, so you have stomach pouch like me, it will be slightly visible Overall, I liked the dress

Cute dress

I wore this to work but it was a pretty versatile dress could be dressed up or down. Ran true to size with plenty of stretch. You could possibly size down. Only downfall was the material was very thin. No way I could wear it without spanx.
