Fitted and flawless!

This dress is fabulous! It fits true to size and it long enough for tall girls (I'm 5'9"). It's almost too low cut to wear without a cami, so be careful if you have a larger chest and still want to look professional. Highly recommend!

Pretty dress, but that back zipper...

Beautiful dress that's light weight and has a slight stretch to the material. I love the length and style. Only downfall I found was that the back zipper, which runs the full length of the dress, kept unzipping itself from the bottom up. I had to check myself every time I stood up to adjust the bottom zipper and pull it back down. Other than that, great dress!

Perfect for an important business meeting

Rented this for an important business meeting. The dress is understated and polished- fits perfectly - fabric has a bit of stretch which makes it extremely comfortable. Length fell just below the knee ( I am 5'6). Colorful stitching at the waist accents nicely. The only drawback is that the full length zipper down the back of the dress will start to unzip from the bottom up after a few hours. Just something to be aware of, but not a big deal.

Great fit. Very slimming.

The stitches at the waist make your waist look very slim. I would say the dress fits true to size to slightly big. Very comfortable. Very flattering. I am a A/B cup size and the chest was a little big so I would say a C could wear this as well. I am 5'7" and the dress went a little past my knee. Beware that is has a zipper in the back that goes the length of the dress and goes BOTH WAYS. I did not realize that and I walked out of the house with the zipper zipped up from the bottom of the dress and my butt was hanging out. :) I was going to buy it but it is over $400.

Work appropriate, not boring. Love this dress!

I am 5'10 and this fit perfectly to my knee. Has a bit of stretch to it and is very forgiving. I love that it has a sleeve for work.

Fit me like a glove!!

If I had it my way, I'd never send this dress back. It fits me like it's stitched for me, accentuates my curves like nothing I've work before and is the only dress my boyfriend asked me to wear to date night as soon as I tried it on. Great length (I'm 5'8" without heels) and amazing fit! Rent it asap!!

Tight waist

The waist is tight like a bodice with no stretch and the arm holes are tiny. Dress is long (below my knee) but material was nice and structured. Back zipper runs from top to hem and if you don't unzip bottom it's hard to walk. If you unzip though be careful as it continues to unzip as you walk. I felt like a fancy waitress. Wouldn't recommend.

Loved the colorful stitching

Slightly snug around the rib cage, then a bit tight through the belly, but the cleavage draws the eyes up. Not the best dress for an apple shape, but I still like the dress.

Nice, but was too big

Was a bit too big and felt frumpy all day long. Wore it since it was part of my unlimited package. Would order an 8 next time. I might like it more if it was more form fitting. Love the length for work.

Looked really cute and slimming but I couldn't get the top part to zip due to my chest.

I love the fit and stretch of this dress. The colorful detail is simple, but adds a lot to the overall look. This dress looked great with a blazer, perfect for our board meeting.

Just okay

Just an okay dress. Nothing special. Fit was like many of other DVF dresses. I usually order up a size or two, so the size 6 fit me (I usually wear a 4 in other brands). Will probably not rent again.

Fit so well as if it was made for me.

Yes a black dress but the colored piping around the waist and seams really made it a stand out. It has very little stretch so I sized up and it fit perfectly as if it was made for me. The 2 way zipper in the back was a beautiful detail that you couldn't really see from the pictures. And the v neck was so flattering. Many subtle details really make this dress perfect.

Watch the zipper

This dress is so pretty And fits true to size. The only issue I had was the zipper runs the full length of the dress and kept coming unzipped from the bottom. I had to zip it back down all day so that's difficult.

Understated with a twist

So rare to find a dress that hits perfectly at the knee and has sleeves. Loved that I could wear it at work without a cardigan and out to dinner looking elegant and polished. It's certainly formfitting, especially on an hourglass, but not too va va voom. I wore it with a cami underneath because the cleavage was a little much. Watch out for the back zipper --if you try to open in a bit at the bottom to raise the slit it opens way up when you walk or bend. I had to keep it closed all the way and wished there was more of a slit.

Great for work but be cleavage aware!

Great dress perfect for for me, I'm fairly athletic so hugged the right parts of my body. I'm a 36C so the cleavage was right on the edge of being work inappropriate but not too bad.

Perfect for work

A nice twist on a basic black sheath. It has cute white darts on the back. The colored stitching around the waist is a nice detail. It is a bit fitted at the middle so if you carry your weight there it may not be a good fit. The length is good, there is a zipper from top to bottom which is a nice design detail but did creep up while I was driving.

I got this for a work event and it was perfect!

Loved how the stitching details make this a little more interesting than a basic black dress. It fit so well too. It's not lined, but the fabric is substantial enough (without being too thick) that it didn't need it.

Nice dress great waist detail

Got this dress for work I'm a comfortable 10 in DVF and this dress was very fitted so definitely would size up if you're curvy/booby. The waist area is not very forgiving but it's a really nice dress. Not the most conservative either so more for a work to night out look.

Unique and elegant!

I rented this dress through Unlimited for a formal grad school function. It was just formal enough while still being fun to wear with the colorful stitching and back zipper. I felt elegant and was super comfortable -- the material is light and feels great. I rented my usual size and could have gone one size down since I'm small in the bust area and felt it was a bit roomy in the shoulder/chest, but this size was just fine for the event.
