Cute, but casual

I'm not sure what I was expecting, but this dress isn't at all dressy. I rented it for a graduation party, but it was more suited for a casual Saturday. Cute, but very casual.

Hourglass Figure

Do not rent if you have an hourglass or pear shape figure. This dress makes your hips look huge, not a great look.

Diane von Furstenberg has NO bust room

I should have learned my lesson by now with this designer. A 14 fits everywhere but the bust. If you are over 34 skip it. The dress was lovely but as usual too tight across the girls.

Love the feel of this dress. It's extremely "flowy" and floor length even after my 3 inch heels and my 5'3" So comfortable!!!

I wore this dress to a Rehearsal Dinner. It was beautiful, just dressy enough, & super comfortable.

I'm a size 4 through and through, and the dress fit TTS. The length was perfect, too - just kissed the floor. I would definitely recommend this dress to someone going to a spring/summer wedding.

Like, not Love.

The dress fit very nicely up top, but has a lot of fabric at the waist. That makes the bottom full and flowy, but definitely makes your hips look bigger than they are. the big bow doesn't help with that. I'm 5'5 and the 2R touched the ground on me. It got stepped on by others and I stepped on it myself a few times. It was pretty, but not a show-stopper.

Stylist Review

I cannot say enough about this dress! The print is beautiful and although this dress may not seem like much when you see it online, it is EVERYTHING when you've got it on in person. It's just a flattering style from head to toe. The length is a little on the longer side so it's great for taller gals but for us shorter ladies, heels or wedges are your friend! This dress is truly amazing for any occasion (work, date night, brunch, etc.). I paired this style with a denim jacket and wedge sandals!

Elegant

I felt very regal wearing this day gown like I had just stepped out of a Jane Austen novel. Love this dress. I might keep it a couple of weeks before returning it. There is no bow on my dress but it does have pockets. Love Diane Von furstenberg. Excellent cut style and design. First class all the way in this dress. It's a head turner and show stopper when I walk down the street.

Beautiful, flowing dress

Rented for casual weekend parties and wine tasting. Gorgeous and flowing, and a bit more dressy than I expected. Fits beautifully; not too small or gaping across the bust, tailoring nicely into the waist and then flaring out. Belt dresses up as more formal if desired. Had planned to wear with 1" sandals for walking to destinations, but I'm a bit too short to pull that off. Dress is so lovely and otherwise comfortable. Would love to purchase and tailor up 3/4"!

Received compliments, I felt beautiful and would rent this dress again!

This dress is gorgeous and fit beautifully. I loved the pockets. It was nice and flowy from the waist down and fit just right around my bust. I went out of town and wore this to church. I really enjoyed wearing this dress and would rent it again.

Beautiful but tight uptop

I love this dress but the chest area is a little tight. Also the flow of the bottom half made my hips look a lot larger than they actually are. The fabric is very beautiful and light. It also has a fun belt which accentuates my growing baby bump! I'd probably size up in my third trimester.

Super easy, flattering dress

I took this dress with me on vacation to Mexico. Wore it out for a night of dinner and dancing, the fit is so lovely, very snug on top and in the waste, very flowy on the bottom. This dress is especially flattering if you have a small waste and wider hips.

great dress that can be dressed up or down

I really liked this dress and felt a bit like a princess in it and at the same time able to wear with sandals to a backyard party. It does run a little long though so I would not recommend for 5'7 and under. I tripped on it a few times. Tight in waist, though my waist is a problem area for me.

I felt great in this dress!

I LOVED this rental! Just walking around the mall within the hour, I got SO many compliments. It was really comfortable and fit me perfectly in length. It has a beautiful, vibrant pattern and looks great layered with other pieces. I'm usually a size 6 but was able to do a 4 in this dress, although it was just a little bit snug. I would highly recommend this piece to anyone looking for something delicate and pretty to wear for a special event/occasion or just an everyday maxi dress.

Beautiful, comfortable dress

I love this dress. I had to size up bc the side zipper would not zip up on me. The dress is very light and you can dress it up with some statement jewelry. I wore it to a wedding and I also wore it to work. I received a lot of compliments at both places. Would buy if it was in my budget, but I will definitely be renting again.

Flowy and fun dress that turned heads!

I got so many compliments on this dress! I wore it to work but the full skirt makes it easy to dress down or up. The only issue was that it was a little long on my 5'4'' frame even with a two inch heel. The dress also has pockets and a cute belt!

Casual and light

I was thrown off by the fabric at first. I thought it felt very cheap, but it ended up being great for the hot day we had. The fabric was so light and comfortable. I wanted to buy it, but I didn't think it was worth the price, but I still really really liked the dress.

Beautiful dress!

I thought this dress was gorgeous in person. It flowed beautifully and was very high quality. I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because it is very tight at the waist - definitely not what a typical size 14 would be in that area, and it also sat higher than my true wast, which I don't think is evident in the product photo. Overall it worked great though and i would definitely recommend!

Lightweight and fun

Loved this dress. Very light weight even though it had a lot of material it wasn't to hot on a hot day. This dress also has pockets. I would not recommend this dress if you have a tummy as this dress does have a lot of material and will emphasize it

Super fun princess skirt (AND POCKETS!)

I wore this to work with a pair of yellow wedges (and I think a sweater...) to give some extra height. Did end up stepping on it myself a couple of times and having a coworker step on the skirt once. The top is a slightly stretchy material and the skirt is nice and light and flowy, which makes for a fun combination. I liked this one with the belt and of course loved that it had pockets! Did not want to send back.

I especially like that it has a separate belt that you can tie on to accentuate your waistline. Fun, easy, side zipper.

Flowing and funky. Great for summer!

This dress has a lot of material below the waist, which gives it a fun, flowing look. Unfortunately, as other reviewers have also pointed out, it means that it is not that flattering for the lower waist/hips. At 5'6", I found this dress too long to wear with flats (not that it stopped me), but 3-inch heels or platforms probably would have worked well. The material is very light and was comfortable on hot days in the city.

Gorgeous, but not for me

This dress was beautiful but hit me at a weird place in the waist. If it had been maybe 1.5 inches longer in the bodice it would have been incredible, but where it hit I looked like I was trying to conceal a pregnancy.

So glad I tried it on

I don't know what made me grab this dress off the rack in the Georgetown store. It doesn't look like much on the hanger but, boy when you put it on! It looks amazing. Its crazy comfortable and the best travel dress. It doesn't wrinkle and has great length. I got compliments all day every time I wore it. I wore it at least three times and hated sending it back

Soooo comfortable. Pockets are deep and functional. If you hare hippy skip it!

I wear between an 8 and a 10, this was a little tight on the waist so I went up to a 10. It is casual enough for everyday but can be dressed up. The fabric is breathable and super comfortable.

Gala-Ready, Comfortable and Fun!

I wore this to a gala event and got so many lovely compliments on it! The fabric around the bust is a softer jersey and then the skirt fabric doesn't have much stretch. It was a little hard to get the side zipper to behave, but once I got it zipped it felt perfect and was not constricting at all (ask a friend or partner to help you zip it up!). The dress just touched the ground on me - I am about 5 ft 3 in and was wearing 3 in heels so if you are very tall you might just be able to see your feet! This dress looks great, is very flattering (especially if you are tummy conscious ) and is actually comfortable....it also HAS POCKETS! Get it!

Great silk fabric. I felt cool and put together on a hot day.
