Cute dress
Wore this to work on an average day. The material is very sturdy and while it's tight, sucks everything in. The only thing is it does ride up a bit when you walk. But that didn't bother me much. I'd suggest sizing up if that would bother you or if you don't like something to be almost formfitting.

Beautiful colors, great material, funky style
Wore it to a family friend's daughter's sweet 16. I felt classy and sophisticated. It had great colors and was a funky fun dress. I love the longer length. Although it is true to size, it did ride up a little but other than that it was great.

Gorgeous, Unique, and Comfortable dress!!!
I wore this dress to a holiday party for work and it was a huge hit. So comfy I didn't want to send it back! This dress works effortlessly on many levels- breathable and bright enough for warm weather yet totally appropriate for a holiday event too. I am also a big fan of James Joyce and this dress is an excellent conversation piece. Highly recommended!

GORGEOUS Dress. Love the design and material.
This dress is definitely body-con. If you have a larger middle, like me, it is better to go a size up. I'll get a size large next time.

This dress made me look like I weighed 20 lbs less than I do. It. Was. Perfect.
Picked this up at the store and I wanted a medium, but they had none in this print. So I just squeezed myself into a small, and because of the thick fabric, it held every unsavory part of my stomach in place. If you don't like thick fabric, this brand is not for you, but as a master of the Spanx trade, I was totally into it. I got so many compliments on both the fit and fun, cool James Joyce print, it was a total hit!

Very comfortable and eye catching
Form fitting without being restricting like a bandage dress. Good length (I'm 5'2") and wedding appropriate. I was able to wear a regular bar. The Small and XSmall were almost the same fit, so I went with the XS since I'm on the shorter side. I loved the original pattern on this dress. Unfortunately, the picture was taken without a flash indoors, so its not the best to show off the dress pattern.

Neoprene material is comfortable and easy to wear. Dress is long which was good for a church wedding. Color is not quite as bright as in their picture.

Makes a statement but still conservative!
This dress fits great and true to size. It was a bit long on me, since I am petite, but it worked for the event that I wore it to. It is made of a thick neoprene type fabric that feels snug but is comfortable. I liked how it tapered in at the waist and it was flattering. I wore it to a book launch and loved that there were "words" across the bottom of the dress...

TONS of compliments
This dress sold me on clover canyon forever. I felt stylish and unique and received many compliments - no one could believe how affordable this rental was. I probably could have warn the small but was rushing out of the door and didn't bother to try it on. I wore a small in another clover rental and found it didn't bunch up as much. Definitely rent this dress!

Great thicker dress. Super comfy!!
This was my first time wearing this designer and material. It was great. I could have worn the small, but it was a bit tight across the hips and i didnt think it would work well for walking. The medium was still form fitting, comfortable, and colorful. I have relatively larger hips, so it kept riding up as i walked, but its length helped that not be an emergency. I got lots of compliments, and will be renting this designer again.

Thanks to the document print, the dress was just perfect for an event at the National Archives
The dress does ride up a little, so you do end up doing the Captain Picard tug. Also, I wore spanx to keep in shape. The print is fabulous. You can move in neoprene, no problem. The back is cute!

Eye catching and a departure from the norm.
Great great great dress. Fit was perfect and even though I was feeling bloated on the day of my conference, this dress still made me feel great. Only negative thing I have to say is that it does ride up while you walk, but what dress doesn't. This could be amazing for a wedding, work event or even just cocktails with the girls. Get this dress or try clover canyon at least once. Love.

collaged art to wear
I loved wearing this dress, I wore if for an ordination ceremony and it was just the right amount of formal, yet funky and comfortable. My only complaint is that I did continually feel the need to pull it down when walking and I wore the small, but the medium did not feel at all any different or larger.

I got so many compliments - this dress is a unique pic. Something about the design made it special!
The fabric is kind of thick, but soft and stretchy. Great for me with curvy hips and butt. it kind of bunch up a little in the M so I went with S.

Great fit, comfortable material!
This was a great rental! The material is thick so it's definitely forgiving. It did get a little hot, so I would recommend it for a cooler weather wedding. Both the XS and S fit, but the XS just fit a little better on top. The length was perfect and the colors were pretty vibrant. I would definitely rent again from this designer.

Beautiful, classy dress with just the right hint of sexy.
Dress fit perfectly; it's form fitting but in the right places, not every place like a Herve Leger. Classy, beautiful, loads of compliments. I rented it with my RTR unlimited and wore it to a wedding reception in Austin, and a couple dinners.

Overall AWESOME dress
I ordered both a M and a S just to see since I felt like I was in between after reading some other reviews. They both fit me and I really could have worn either but the M started to bunch a bit in the mid section and I liked the length of the S better. So I went with the small. I wore it for my engagement photos and I couldn't be happier wit be the way it looked in photographs! Also, the material made it so that I didn't have to worry about it wrinkling while in my bag since we took casual photos in jeans and tshirts first. Overall, I loved this dress and would rent it again. And for a first timer I was pleasantly surprised with how easy it was.

Dress fits like a glove and the pattern is so unique!
This dress is one of my favorite rentals so far. It is tight, but in the best way possible. The fabric is thick and really hides any flaws. The pattern is stunning, I got so many compliments on how unique is was. The only issue is that is bunched up a little, but not too bad. Rent this dress!!

A fun, unique dress for a cocktail attire wedding.
I love the unique print and so did a lot of my friends. The thick fabric minimizes any lumps or lines. Very comfortable, but the lower portion needed to be pulled down at times. Would definitely rent again or something similar from the brand.

Amazing Dress. Will probably end up purchasing this one!
This was actually a back -up that was sent because my original selection was damaged. I could not be happier with this dress. I probably could have worn the small or the medium. Tons of compliments all night and it was incredibly comfortable.

Fit great with spanx to hide my little post pardum belly. Love the full coverage up top. Easy to move and dance in. Material is just as I had read in other reviews "like a wet suit".

Wore to an outdoor wedding
This is a great dress. Both the XS and S fit, but I wore the S, not really sure why. It rides up just a bit as you can see in the picture, but didn't really bother me. Paired with the pink clutch, also rented, and black patent strappy heels. I felt really good in this dress, the fabric is really comfortable. I'd definitely recommend to others.

Classy, unique dress
I rented this dress for a bridal shower. It was fun, girly and Clover Canyon's fit is amazing and comfortable. It made sitting and getting up and down while hosting a breeze. I love the scuba fabric. If you haven't rented a CC dress before, the brand is a must try.

Classy, colorful, sexy, and comfy!
Had a "cocktail" attire wedding to attend, but knew a lot of it would be outside in June in Texas! Needed a summertime feel dress that was still fit the cocktail/evening bill, and would look good if I were to sweat my booty off. Read this dress was made of "wet suit" type material, and I was sold it was the dress for this event. I was so right!! Fit like a GLOVE, could wear a normal bra, and didn't need Spanx but wore some to help make it look more streamline over my hips. It was very unique (no one was wearing anything close to it!), and I could dance the night away in it without feeling uncomfortable or worry about sweating through it. VERY, VERY stretchy for bust and hips. Choose your size on how snug you like to wear body con type dresses.

Fabulous
This dress was fantastic. I ordered the S & the M because I know Clover Canyon tends to fit a bit tight. I ended up wearing the S, so I would say it fits pretty true to size. If you're not used to the scuba material you might be a little uncomfortable as it's not terribly forgiving, but it's meant to be form-fitting. The length hit right around my lower thigh/just above the knee, which is something I prefer. The colors are vibrant and quite pretty. All-in-all I wish I owned this dress as I would definitely wear it again.

Great dress. Incredibly comfortable and easy to move and dance in!
Fit was true to size. Only complaint is the fabric is thick and stretchy and would bunch up as I moved/walked around so I had to pull it down alot. Not a big deal since that is what lends to its comfort. Based on the stretch of the fabric, this dress would be good for anyone.

Great sleeveless choice for chilly weather
Love that this was "wetsuit" material. I wore it to a chilly March wedding in upstate New York and it was perfect. I was between a small and medium, but opted for the medium as it was a little more forgiving and didn't bunch as much in the middle.

Fun dress that hugs your curves
I ordered the XS and the S - both fit great, but the XS held everything in a bit better. This is a perfect dress for showing off your curves in a classy way. The unique pattern is an attention grabber.
