Very classy, WOW factor dress for work

I LOVE everything about this dress. I'm 5'2 and it came right at the middle of my knees making it work appropriate though I wouldn't have minded an inch or so shorter. It's incredibly flattering in all the right places. I have a very full bust and had to wear a can I underneath due to the PLUNGING neckline! I wouldn't have even worn it without something under it for a date night. The details on the dress are subtle but really give it something extra! The flow of the pleated skirt won me over! I would so buy this one day!

Fun navy party dress!

Fantastic dress! I wore this for a cocktail type birthday party/dinner and it was a hit. Fit me perfectly and complimented my shape. The details make this dress. Would highly recommend this dress. Wore it will nude wedges but you can dress up or down as needed.

Different but fun

This dress is not very flattering in the mid-section because of the way it pleats, and it is a tad low cut, but it it fun and flirty, and I received several compliments throughout the day. Overall, all I liked it, but I'm not sure I'd rent it again.

Beautiful fabric and movement

This dress was fantastic. If fit perfectly in the chest, waist, and hips and is very flattering. The fuller skirt and the material allow for subtle movement of the dress with each step---it looks beautiful on.

Fun and flattering

Wore this today a day time event. It is a bit low cut so keep that in mind if your worried about that at all. Very pretty details in a fit and flare style.

Fit beautifully and perfect for dancing

Fit was just above my knees, and flowy fabric fell perfectly around the bodice. Flirty hem and interesting details in the pleats and panels.

Beautiful color but strange fit

Beautiful color and fabric but it has no give. I wore this for family photos and it worked out fine but I have a small waist so it was baggy around the mid section. It looked fine from the front but from side/profile looked a little strange. I ended up clipping the back. Also it pulls on over the head - no zipper - so I needed help getting it on and off. Overall strange fit.

So many fun details!

I loved this dress for so many reasons: Navy - always love navy Great fit - but definitely runs large - I could put on the 42 without unzipping Super stylish details - I don't generally look terrific in accordion pleats, but they're positioned in a way that does not accentuate the hip area. The v-neck is a little low, but still work appropriate. The folds, pleats, and buttons all conspire to give this dress a deservedly high end feel. Husband approved - and he doesn't generally notice specifics. Am considering renting again (and possibly buying).

I loved the dress but it runs really small in the bust so I couldn't wear it.

Too tight in the chest

I'm a 32E (5'6", 140lbs) and generally wear a size 4. I always use the "Full Bust" search. This dress was pretty small on my hips but ooh lord it was not working with my bust. It is beautiful, the contrasting fabrics are gorgeous, the waist is perfectly fitted, but it is not "full bust" friendly. Highly recommended for sub-D cups!

Great detail

This dress is adorable. Great details make it really stand out. Fabric is luxurious as well. Only reason I have it a 4 star review is that the bottom portion is a little ill-fitting if you have any hint of hips.

Stylist Review

Simple yet perfect for work and drinks after . The dress is a beautiful color and is comfortable throughout with room. True to size for curvier women I recommend going a size up as your back up size. What I love most about this style that it can be worn with a standard bra. I'm 5'1 with 3 inch heel the dress had hit right on my knee which makes this style a perfect style to wear to work. I would wear this style with statement earrings.

Perfect pretty, feminine yet powerful daytime work dress that flows effortlessly into cocktails

Could wear this again and again. Doesn't necessarily give you a waist but the cut isn't meant to. Pretty accentuates your upper area, hides armpit fat, and a perfect all around dress. It has a few special details and you feel lovely wearing it. Suggest you wear for daytime dress or cocktails. Doesn't wow anyone but everyone will think its high end designer. Enough quality details to pass.

Easy choice but somewhat boring

It fit well but wasn't as visually interesting or flattering as I had hoped. I went with another option for date night and returned this one.

Flirty and fun

This dress is very cute and light. It's made of soft material and perfect for a summer time work outfit.
