Loved it!

Great dress. Wore it twice. Once out to dinner on a date and then at work. For work I layered a white button up, since it is pretty low cut in the front. Got many compliments, the colored dots on the front are very subtle but make the dress interesting and fun.

Wore to work and then to dinner that night it was great to take from work to evening

True to size a little snug on top so maybe go a size up if wider on top

Very cute

Cute dress. I usually wear a 4 but ordered a 6 because did dresses run small on me without stretch seem to rub small on me. It fit well but was still a little small in the hip and thigh area.

Wearing my jacket all day because the dress is too low cut?

This is a lovely dress - expensive fabric. But PLEASE note: 1. This is a heavier fabric - not a good choice for daywear in a warm State. 2. This dress runs a full size small. 3. This dress is made for a tall, long-bodied Gal. I am 5'5 in heels and it still hit me well below the knees. A long pencil with no back vent - think tiny steps all day... 4. My upper body is not "long" so it was too low a V-neck. Had to wear my jacket all day. 5. A lovely dress but cut for a "model" figure.

Did not wear

This dress looked blah blah boring on my figure even though it fit perfectly. The fabric is heavy, lined and overall not suitable for warm weather. Could have been cuter in cold weather with turtleneck & knee high boots.

Super cute dress, unfortunately the link that was weird on me because I'm only 5'4

Dress fit beautifully, it's just a length that was not flattering for someone my height ( in my opinion, I don't like things that hit right below the knee ) so I did not end up wearing it

Elegant dress with just the right amount of color.

This dress is conservative and yet still fun with the little splash of color. Perfect for the political fundraiser I wore it too. Only very little stretch with the fabric on the back of the dress. The v-neck is not inappropriately deep, but I don't have a ton of cleavage either. If you have a large chest you might feel differently.

The dress arrived on time and in great condition the colors on top of the black were gorgeous.

I am generally a size 6 but lately have been losing a little weight so I went with the size 4 which was too tight and formfitting to wear to work. I have a larger bust size so the top showed too much cleavage if you are smaller chested then this is the dress for you for work.

Amazing cut

Loved this dress! Received many compliments at work. The front is a thicker material that seems formal but the pop of color from the pattern helps to liven it up. Since it's such great fabric the shape held up all day and accentuated the right places even though I'm pretty straight in the hips and waist.

Cute work dress

Not necessarily a "light" dress in terms of the heavy fabric, but the pattern is really cute. I paired it with a long black cardigan and tights and booties for work.

Classic and form fitting.

Very classic looking dress. I wore to work. Is a little tight in the hip area for me. I don't have a large lower half but I do have an athletic figure. Top part fit great-very comfortable. This was my second time renting this dress and I will rent again.

Beautiful dress!

This dress is beautiful, but the material is too heavy for the summer. I should have read the other reviews before I rented it. It ran a little big all over, especially the top. Great dress for fall, size down!

Great dress!! Classy, well made, great cut and fun colors and texture.

Second time I've rented this for work. I love it! The colors add a fun element to an otherwise conservative dress. It is a bit low cut, but I'm only a b cup so it wasn't too much. Love this dress!

Compliments galore

Loved this DVF dress. Was a little snug on me so I probably should have gone with the 2. Otherwise, got a lot of compliments on it and would definitely rent again. Great dress that can take you from work to night out.

Beautiful silhouette!!!

I joined the Unlimited program and picked this DVF dress as part of my 3 items. It's gorgeous for work. I tried it on in front of my husband and he said it was gorgeous on. I'm sending it back because it's too warm to wear right now (it's in the upper 80's in LA). But I definitely will pick this one again when it gets cooler. Perfect for work, church or a day time party. Highly recommend.

Best. Dress. Ever.

Completely obsessed with this dress! The fit is amazing and the thickness of the fabric makes it very flattering. It does show a bit of cleavage if you have a bigger bust but not egregious. Would definitely rent again!

Sophisticated work dress

I am in between sizes (4-6), and the 6 fit me perfectly, so I would say this sheath runs a half-size small. I wore this to work, and it was perfect with a black blazer and a cami underneath. There is a bit of color, but the thickness of the fabric along with the length made this a perfect outfit for my conservative workplace. For date night, I plan to lose the cami and blazer for a more dressed up look.

Did not wear. I am usually a 4 and this was tighter than I expected. Plus it popped out in the stomach in an unflattering way.

Feel fantastic in this dress.

The v neck is a nice touch on a sheath dress. The v is a bit low for work but I owned it. The colors are sophisticated and flattering. 8 ran small with no give so I would try a 10 next time. I wore it with a jacket so felt comfortable.

Sleek and fun

Better in person than in the photos--textured and tweedy but soft and not too heavy. The back is a different fabric. It has a nice stretch to it, comfortable but thick enough to hold you in. A little too va va voom for work but perfect with a black cami and cardigan. Glad I sized up.

So many compliments ...

This is a great work dress. The back is a stretchy material, so the dress is very forgiving and will fit lots of shapes (made room for my belly). I paired with a long black sweater and couldn't have been happier. I got compliments all day.

I agree with other reviews, the dress lacks a slit in the skirt so moving around was a bit difficult

Liked but didn't love

Pros: beautiful fabric. The colored spots were lovely colors and gave the fabric a great texture. Very appealing to look at. Cons: it's not very figure flattering. It's doesn't really enhance the waist and is very narrow around the hips. There is also no slit at the bottom so it's tricky to walk up steps/ get into cars. Also a bit low cut for work. Pretty but just not for me

Classic sheath

I rented this for work meetings and loved the fit but wish it was just slightly higher cut on the V neck so I wasn't displaying any cleavage. If you are a bit busty, that may be an issue. But the fit is great, slim silhouette.

Fits great

Fit like a glove. Really great cut and material. A bit baggy up top if you're flat chested. Also has no slit so can be a bit hard to move. Will probably rent again.

Not my favorite

Front fabric is looks heavy - as tweed, but then its no sleeves- so more warm weather type, it was fine to wear in the office, but my main complaint is a cut or stretch from cleaning in my waist / mid section , it was not nicely buckling, so 3 start for that, also no cut/ slit for walking

Runs small!

Rented this dress for work. I usually wear a 0, but this was a super snug fit. V neck was also cut a bit low for the office, but it would have been worse had I gone a size up. Tight through the hem, making it tough to walk, particularly up stairs. Snugness was particularly unflattering around the midsection. Fabric also looked worn. Would not recommend.

Super flattering. My son said it made me look like a million bucks and he is 13!

Fit like a glove, showed all the right curves
