Beautiful dress!!

I am not familiar with DVF sizing and ordered my regular size. It runs much smaller that Tory Burch and Trina Turk but the dress is absolutely beautiful!

Amazingly unflattering

I should have known better- drop waists just don't work for me. But to compound the look, the bird pattern swoops under the lower belly - making it look more pronounced. Also, this length is tragic for petites.

Beautiful craftsmanship but not the most flattering

This dress was fun to rent and wear once. Very pretty but not flattering to my shape. It is very slim fitting from the hips and up so size up if you are chesty or hold weight in your midsection.

Beautiful for Day-to-Night

I rented this dress because I needed something to make the transition from daytime (business professional office) to night time (friend's birthday at a nice restaurant). This gorgeous DVF was perfect - my boyfriend could not stop raving about it :) I was worried at first bc of reading other reviews on the fit, but it turned out to be great on my small frame. I'm 5'1" so the length was more ankle than midi (see photo), but the waist hit me at the right spot and the pleats were gorgeous. The fabric is lightweight and perfect for a nice fall day. Those with larger chests may want to size up - the 0 fit my A-cup chest well.

Okay dress - looks better in pictures

The dress in unique but somehow just looked okay in person. The red and black pleats don't look as sophisticated unfortunately. The material is nice though!

Great transitional dress

Great dress, wore to work and then date night/Happy Hour. My only complaint was that the fabric seemed very thin. Was expecting higher quality

Gorgeous!

Such a beautiful print and so comfortable. I was worried about the length, as it hits mid-calf on me, but I love how it looked - people stopped me on the street to compliment the dress!

Unexpected details!

This dress looks so professional, but it's definitely not boring. The pleats reveal a pop of red and the bird print is so cute. I love this dress!

The fabric is very light and compliments your body. It's dark colored so it covers any imperfections.

Slightly weird fit in the waist but still very pretty

It ran a bit snug with a dropped waist but I wore it to work with a jean jacket over it and got tons of compliments. I would rent again, maybe go up one more size.

Feminine

The hem is weird, but I wore it anyway because the fabric, print and fit are so lovely. The hem was pressed but not hemmed, So it looked sloppy, as if the stitching had come out.

Not for girls with hips

The pattern is beautiful and the material is a beautiful draped silk. I was crossing my fingers that I would love it but after looking in the mirror I knew it wasn't for me. I have a smaller waist and hips and it was terribly unflattering. The placement of the pleating will accentuate the good and true pleats will flare out creating a strange and unflattering shape. I really didn't want to post this unflattering picture but thought I should to show what the dress looks like if you have hips!

Horrible cut

If you have curves this isn't for you. Hangs poorly, emphasizes the hips making them appear wider and has awkwardly place seams in the middle of the torso.

Look no feather than this bird dress!

This dress is lovely. I wore it to work and paired it with a cropped jacket but it would work well for a range of nicer but still casual events. It's silk so there's no give to the fabric so I sized up because I didn't want a super tight fit for work. The pleating is very feminine and adds just the right amount of flair but still appropriate for work. I loved everything about this dress and it's gonna be a struggle not to purchase it. I would say to pass on this dress if you're shorter than 5'7"; this dress needs height. If you have hips this dress also doesn't flatter; I had to add some shapewear to make it lay right. Regardless this is a whimsical lovely dress worth a whirl!

Fun and Flowy

There are Macaws on this dress! Thin and very comfortable. I live in Hawaii, so the material was great for 80 degree weather. No stretch, but was a perfect fit. I don't like my dresses tight, so I could pinch a little extra material around my ribs and stomach.

Just meh and lots of static cling

The pattern and colors are great and the pleated skirt is fun. The fit is not very flattering -- the drop waist panel has some stitching that makes it not lay flat giving a bumpy/bulky look to my midsection. Not a great look!

Beautiful, comfortable and unique

I loved this dress!! I wore it to a full day of meetings and it was so comfortable and elegant. I loved the fabric and the pop of the red on the bottom. I would consider buying this although it is definitely bright and memorable so I wouldn't wear it to work again.

Not for the busty!

DVF tends to run small in the chest and this fabric has absolutely no give. It was nowhere near closing at the back at the bust line. Elsewhere it was fine, so sizing up probably wouldn't have been a good option either. Had to send it back unworn.

Amazing DVF dress!

This dress is absolutely gorgeous. It is very romantic and classy. I wore this to work the red carpet for a movie premiere and it was perfect. It is silk, so there is no stretch, but this dress is true to size. If you're debating getting this, just get it because the pleated bottom will give you the twirl boost to feel fancy.

Beautiful fit!

I rented this for a rehearsal dinner and loved the fit! Gorgeous knife pleats and it really flows. It does run slightly long. I'm 5 6 and it did a little longer than I usually wear but I think this look would like weird short. Fits true to size otherwise.

Got lots of compliments. Fit like a glove and was super light weight. It's true the pleats don't lie flat.

Absolutely love this dress!

I rented this dress for work and loved it so much that I kept it for a few weeks- it also worked for a family birthday dinner and an anniversary dinner. It's a gorgeous fabric and the skirt is fun! If it wasn't such a unique pattern I would purchase it- I can't justify the cost though! Will definitely rent again! 10/10 recommend

Vibrant colors and flattering fit

Wore this to work and got several compliments. It's still winter weather here in NYC and I'll not that the fabric is thin and light so definitely a better summer dress, but with tights and a cardigan it was fine.
