Fresh take on a retro silhouette

The dress is a pretty sturdy weight- great for chillier months. Lots of stretch and give, so it was super comfortable to move around and dance in. Since it's a shift dress, I didn't expect it to be too fitted, but even this one was a bit baggy around the waist. The sleeves have a slight bell to them, which didn't really come through in the photo but I liked them. Gives it sort of a retro vibe. It runs a bit short, but wasn't too terrible that I couldn't live with it. Overall, I really loved this dress. Can't beat chic and comfortable. Wish I could've kept it.

Great dress!

I was so happy with this dress! It's so comfortable, and very flattering. typically shift dresses don't work well on me because my hips are much larger than my waist, but it is just fitted enough in the waist so it didn't bulge out! Size wise, I got a 6 and an 8. I could have got away with either, but the 8 was just a little too roomy on the top, so I ended up wearing the 6. I'm trying to find a reason to rent this dress again!

Rented as a Bachelorette Party Gift

Warning! I did not wear this dress myself, I ordered it for a friend, to wear for her Bachelorette Party in Nashville (so my sizes do not coordinate!). I rented her both the 0 and the 2 and she wore the 2. It was the perfect dress for a night out with the girls in cold weather. She paired the dress with black tights and heels and looked amazing!

Classic, Beautiful Dress

I absolutely loved this dress! Wore it to dinner and a Broadway play for my birthday. It's very simple, yet elegant. The dress is super comfortable, and the material is thick, and very soft. True to size, and is a shift dress, so it's roomy.

Cute little well made dress!

Super cute little dress, with the emphasis on little! I wore this to a baby shower and styled it with some nice high boots to give it a boho vibe. I love the stretch in the material and the slight bell in the sleeves. I was feeling a bit self conscious of the length - never a great feeling, but I made it work. I would recommend for someone petite.

Elegant, understated, sophisticated perfection!

Flawless fit. Ponte has a stretch. Went with my true size, size 2. It's not too short! Looks elegant and sophisticated while, showing enough leg to be sexy. This is the Carrie/Mr. Big Courtroom dress for sure! Paired with tan/nubuck ankle strap sandal heels to keep the attention on the dress. Great for brunettes.

Great dress! Love the way it fit and the customer service was amazing

I got this for a Mardi Gras party. I was worried bc I'm short so usually dresses are long on me but this one was perfect! I went a size down and it looked and fit great! It was very comfortable too.

The dress was a little big but overall it was a great dress. I wore this for my bridal shower and I think it was perfect for the event. The dress was comfortable and I received a ton of compliments on it.

A Winter White Winner

I rented this dress for my bridal shower lunch in February. After being worried that it wasn't seasonal, this dress turned out to be a great shade of winter white. It's skews ivory, not bright white. Wore the size 2 (with room to spare) with tights, pumps, and a colorful cuff for a put-together look. It was a hit!

Rented it for my courthouse wedding and couldn't have been happier with it. Cute and comfortable!

Runs a bit large but it IS a shift dress. Loved the bell to the sleeves. Might be a bit too short on you if you're taller. The material is a bit thicker (perfect for cooler weather) and is soft with a bit of stretch to it. I really loved this dress and have gotten a million compliments on how it photographed in my wedding photos.

Such a cute and comfortable dress! Perfect for a bridal shower.

Very comfortable! I wore the 0 as the 2 just seemed a little large. I am 5'2" so it wasn't too short. But it would warn a taller girl about the length. I had to be careful when I sat down. Overall so cute and comfortable. Lots of compliments.

i loved this for a holiday work party. It was definitely short, so I needed to wear tights underneath. It was perfect for a winter party with the long sleeves.

Rented for Engagement Party

This dress is very pretty and runs true to size. Unfortunately it is very short and I did not want to wear tights. I am 5'5" and it hit only a couple inches under my butt. It would be cute with flat sandals or to be worn in Vegas where shorter dresses are more acceptable.

Not for me!

This dress did not fit the way I expected after reading the reviews. It was large in the chest and shoulders and very, very, short. Even if it fit up top , it would have been to short to wear anywhere!

Comfortable and fun!

This dress fits nicely and is very comfortable. You have to be careful with the lining - it pops up a bit in the back by the zipper, which can need smoothing down, but otherwise was great. I'm not tall to begin with, and the only difference in the 2 and 4 sizes was the length, so I wore the 4 - and that said, it was still pretty short on me - definitely not a dress you can lean over in! But it was cute, comfortable and easy - so i would recommend!

Size WAY down for this.

I read the reviews and knew I was taking a risk when i rented this, but took the chance anyway. It was huge. I was swimming in it. It's a shift dress, so it didn't look right belted and the material is too thick for it anyway. Sadly there was no way to make this work since I already ordered the zero. Very cute dress, just wish it fit.

Great fit!

I rented this for my bridal shower and I loved it! My only problem is its short and I'm only 5'5", would be best paired with leggings as it felt more like a tunic. The 6 was perfect so I would size down for a backup

Wore this for my birthday dinner & party. It was a fun dress, with lace detail - would recommend!

It is pretty short, but runs on the larger side so it wasn't clingy. Wore with a pop of color (teal) earrings and ring, and nude heels. Would be great for a bachelorette, too!

The details on the dress!

I wore this for my rehearsal dinner. I LOVED this dress and so wish I could have kept it. It was comfortable and soft, be careful about the length though that snuck up on my quick when I lifted my arms to hug someone. The detail on the front of this dress is so gorgeous and unique, made my wonderful evening even better!

Absolutely gorgeous, classy, and chic dress! Quite unbelievable how many compliments I received!

The fit and length was perfect! Did not know the sleeves flared out a little bit (nothing wrong with that though). Not sure what kind of fabric it was but it was thick and a bit heavy so it's perfect for a cold night

Enjoying time with my girls in Napa!

Great dress for my bachelorette party. I ordered the 0 and 2. Wore the 2 because the 0 was not available. It is a thicker material which was nice for the cool Napa evening. It was a little shorter too which I liked, I'm 5'5" so it wasn't inappropriate but nice to show a little leg while being covered up top.

Really cute dress, perfect for a winter wedding ceremony

Size 4 was almost looseboxy which I liked, but very short! I'm only 5'5 and had to be careful about sitting down. Material was great, comfortable and thick unlike a lot of white dresses. Lots of compliments, the front is really nicely done.

Couldn't wear, way too short!!

I'm 5'7", as soo as I put it on I knew it had to go back. It was more the length of a shirt. Couldn't even think about lifting my arms or bending. Very thick material. Would have been cute. Arrived a little wrinkled. Would need a steam
