Not the right size

I think the color was beautiful. The slip is well made and comfortable but this dress was a miss. I either ordered a size too large or its just too overwhelming for my body type. Did not wear.

Great Color and Pattern.

Runs a little big. Not too much structure. Bright orange color that doesn't come through on the pictures.

So cute and comfy!

This dress is a true shift style dress and runs large. I really enjoyed the carefree style.

Cute color/print

This runs large. But I like the orange floral Irony and the breezy nature of the dress. I wasn't really sure on the sizing. I ordered it too large so I ended up belting it. I liked wearing it.

Pretty pattern

Fits like a bag, not much for the figure. Includes a slip, but still felt see through to me. Great fun color and pattern. Small head hole, by the way. I've got an average size head and I had to squeeze through it. Still I liked the dress and so did the husband.

Summery and fresh!

This dress is so great. The print is bold and fun but somehow subtle and easy. The fit is comfortable and loose but the slip fits closer to your body, so it feels appropriate. I wore this to a client meeting and the length was great for the office.

Not for my body type

Since I am doing the unlimited rent the runway I decided to experiment with different silhouettes, needless to say this was not my cut. Not a bad dress if it is your style just not mine. It had no shape and was extremely baggy under the arms.

Soooo big.

It's like a tent. Beautiful material but cut very generously. I couldn't wear it- had to go back.

Easy and breezy summer dress!

I rented this dress for a weekend away in the Hamptons through Unlimited. To be honest I didn't love it from looking at it online, but when I saw it in person, the light weight fabric and the pattern won me over! The dress is so comfortable and light weight. It can be dressed up a little or just worn as a casual day dress. The modest cut also makes this dress versatile. The slip underneath is true to size, but this shift dress is pretty loose, so size down for back up. I'm 5'5, 120 typically a size 0-2, and the size 0 in this had lot's of room to spare. This dress was so great for my weekend getaway, and a day at the office. I highly recommend this summer dress!

Color didn't work for me

Very light material. Unfortunately the cream and orange colors didn't work for me. I signed up for unlimited subscription to try things outside of my comfort zone, and the dress did serve the purpose.

Light and airy.

Loved the flow and fit. It's very forgiving but fashion forward with a summer twist. So tempted to buy it, I'll order it again.

Good for casual Friday at work or for the weekend

I really liked this dress and got a ton of compliments. Really really loose and flowy which I thought looked a little weird at first, but I got happier with it as the day went on. Ended up wearing it out that night too for an after work function. I would rent again!

The dress size that I ordered never came. The larger backup size arrived, but it was a little too large. The print and material is beautiful.

Great summer anytime dress!

It does run large but it makes it comfy. The color is so nice and warm. Great with cowboy boots (I thought) or sandals! Want to keep!

Okay...

I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it. It was super baggy so I added a belt. Might be better for the beach or vacation, rather than work.

Great color and pattern... not possible to wear

Just too big for being short and petite and curvy. Couldn't work it with a belt either. Better for tall and slender. Great summer fabric and pattern though.

Great print and color but too big

Totally understand this dress is supposed to be oversized but I got my usual size 2 and it was just too big. Loved the lightweight material, print and color but I couldn't wear it as I would have just looked silly.

Billowy and breezy

Very breezy dress - perfect for hot weather. Didn't find it to be too sheer (wore with the nude "slip" it came with). Definitely a tent-like fit even when I sized down (and had I sized down farther the slip would have been too snug). Did have to steam it when it arrived so plan for that if you're renting on the go!

Huge dress

I typically love shift dresses but this thing runs so big and is so unflattering. It was basically just like wearing an ugly sack. I didn't wear it and returned it immediately.

Fresh unusual color combo

Loose comfortable silk dress. Fresh unusual colors. The orange is like a sherbet. Love the back drape of this dress. I went down a size which seemed to work well to lessen the bag effect. Don't lift your arms up though or else slip is exposed. Tight hole to get head through. No zip or button.

Aloha!

Much more neon than it looks and is a silky material. Runs HUGE so definitely size down. Gets a little boring up top so be sure to pair with a long tassel or short statement necklace

Didn't wear, too summery

I rented this as a casual option to wear to work. It's a very summery dress and didn't feel appropriate for the office. Additionally, the head hole was very small. It was uncomfortable to take on and off. It's a nice print so I gave it three stars. Might work better for the right occasion.

Yellow

The dress fall very nice, it had an undergarment slip that made it non-see thru since the fabric is very thin. The color is perfect for the summer. I wore it with turquoise accessories and it looked fabulous. Got many compliments at work.

Rented this for a work event in warm climate. Was fine nothing special. The under slip runs true to size but the dress is large. Was comfortable but not all that flattering

Much too large.

This dress was much too large. I ordered an 8-10, which I usually wear and it seemed more like a plus-sized dress. I couldn't wear it and returned it asap.

The creamy color of the fabric is gorgeous for spring. It was comfortable and easy to wear.

I wore this dress to a casual rehearsal dinner. The fit is very loose so I sized down. I didn't want to look like I was wearing an oversized tee shirt. I got tons of compliments. It photographs nicely. The bag is also from Rent the Runway, Rebecca Minkoff. I wore it with wedges, but it would also work with flats.

Beautiful material. I needed a belt.

I should have sized down. I'm usually between an 8 and a 10, but I got the 42 (is that Large? Can't remember). It was like a mu-mu, so I belted it and it looked very nice. The color and pattern are gorgeous. You can really play it up or down. But I would size down next time.

This dress runs very large -- I would definitely size down.

The dress is really cute, but really large. I ended up belting it and still wearing it, but it was at least one if not two sizes too big. The colors are true to the photos and are really cute! Just size down.

runs very large. cute but casual.

you'll need to steam this dress before wearing. it arrived VERY wrinkled. it was cute but ran HUGE, it's pretty long and generously cut. the slip was quite tight through the chest though so I used my own. it was a little more subdued than in the photo, I wasn't crazy about the color but it's a decent dress for a casual event.

Comfortable and pretty

I rented this to wear for a Sunday luncheon and it was a good choice for the event. This dress is soft, flowy, comfortable, and dressier than a sundress. It is intended to be tent-ish and so can come off as large, so I would size down if that's an issue for you. Pair with tall nude heels.

Great color and fabric for summer, but definitely runs large--I wish I had sized down. I really like that it comes with a nude slip. I'd highly recommend as a seasonal must have!

Great color, but very large

This dress was beautiful on the hanger, but just didn't lay right on me. I still wore it to work, but decided to belt it so that it didn't feel so much like a sack. I may have just gotten the wrong size, but it was overly large. The color is gorgeous, so I was bummed that it was unflattering on.

Cute and comfortable for a casual party

I liked but not loved this. The silk was lovely and the back had a nice cut. This color would probably look good on someone with darker skin as it washed my fair skin out a bit. I sized down to the equivalent of a 4, and it fit well. Otherwise it could look tent like, but it depends on taste.

Very light, it came a bit wrinkled but a steamer was able to make everything right. Runs a bit large. I received a lot of compliments for this dress.

Just too big to wear :(

I was very sad that this dress was just too BIG for me to wear! However, I don't think I could have gone any smaller because the neckline was very tight. I had to remove my stud earrings to put on the 34, which was my backup size. It's a beautiful print, and a neat color and fabric, but the sizing was just too off for me.
