Easy return for refund

I imagine this dress might look good on a tall slender girl, it added 10 lbs on me and was too long

Nothing...

Plaid is in! But this dress was less flattering than I expected. Neck is a little low cut and sleeve are long on my arms.

Loose up top but great work dress

If I rent again I would size down. The top half of the dress was too big. The material has some stretch so a smaller size would have been perfect.

Flattering with the black side panels. The flare offers something unique in a traditional work dress

Great dress for work

I really liked this dress for work. It is a nice length and the fit is flattering. It was a little low cut on me so I needed a cami or there would have been cleavage.

Beautiful dress but runs slightly large

I loved this dress! I usually wear a 6 and it did fit but I would have been more comfortable one size down.

Runs large but cute

Pretty fabric and was comfy and stretchy. The lose fit on the bottom half was flattering. A little lower than expected though.

Fashion Forward Work Dress

The dress was form fitting around the shoulders and arms. It was loose around the waist area, which I compensated with an elegant belt. Great dress for daytime work hours and can easily transition to an evening work function. I received many compliments in this dress and would highly recommend.

Great work dress! Super flattering.

This is a great work dress! I wore it for a 4 hr client work shop w black tights, black heels and it was perfect! It's flattering and comfortable. I did need to run out and buy a black slip since it's unlined and was sticking to my tights. No biggie since I needed a new slip anyways.

Fantastic fall/winter Work!

Fit is generous, I could have easily worn a 10 and it would have been fabulous. So many compliments. At 5'11 length was 2-3" below my knee, so smaller girls may feel a bit overwhelmed. You should rock this with black tights & booties! The black diamond panels on either side of waist were so slimming. Fabric was thick and the pattern just fantastic. This is a keeper!

Professional

Fit was a little tight on my arms and a little loose on my wait but overall true to size. I wore this for a long day of presentations and meetings at work with dinner with my managers and coworkers afterwards and it was perfect for that kind of day!

Simple but flattering great quality

I sized down and glad I did. Simple but flattering for my pear shaped body. I have a small waist/upper body and larger hips so it flowed nicely.

Nice pattern, darts didn't hit me right

I love the micro houndstooth pattern. The color combinations looked great! One problem is the darts didn't hit me right. Would be better for someone a couple inches taller.

Distinctive, classy dress! Mine arrived with a small hole but I was able to pin it together and wear it. I received numerous compliments and I no longer have to rent it since I have added the dress to my permanent collection.

Great looking dress

Comfortable and classy I would have bought it but for two flaws: 1) too-tight arms 2) instant armpit odor, and it wasn't mine. Needs a THOROUGH cleaning

Not good!

This dress was very unflattering. Made me look wider and was a really bad length. Taking back right away

fun work dress

not your typical work dress. i'm usually a 4, which fit a bit large. the 2 wldve been better. there was room all around and there's a little stretch at the waist. hit a couple of inches past the knee for me, but not surprising because i'm short. front wasn't too low. this is a great work dress, looks best w high heels. didn't find the sleeves constricting

Wore this with black tights and had a few complements on it. It ran large and I would definitely size down if I get this again.

Feminine but professional

This is the perfect dress for work. You don't want to wear a jacket because it will cover the contrast. The dress runs large so if you are small chested, break out the padded bra.

Comfortable, but not flattering on me. Made me look wide. Runs 1/2 size large on top.

This dress did not flatter my hourglass body shape. The black triangle inserts and the extra fabric on the sides of the skirt made me look much wider (I would have expected the opposite effect from the triangle inserts). I did not wear this dress. In terms of fit, I would say this dress runs 1/2 size large at the top. I am usually a 10 at the chest and 8 at the waist/hips (5'8", 155 lbs, 36C). I rented this dress in size 8 and it fit well at the waist/hips and a bit snug at the chest. The dress is lined at the top and not lined at the skirt. If you are wearing tights, you might need to wear a slip to prevent the unlined skirt from clinging to your legs. The black triangle inserts are made out of stretchy material, which makes the dress comfortable to wear.

Great length for a tall gal like myself, though it does run a bit big in the body.

I wore this with some wedge heels and a great red coat!

This fit really well. The only problem was that it was an odd fit in my shoulders. The dress was too big in the shoulders and I had to keep pulling it down. But the triangle pattern near the waist was so wonderful and slimming. I got so many compliments about how professional I looked!

I'm a full busted gal with wider arms - wish there were a way to know in advance if something was too tight in the arms. I couldn't zip it up. Didn't wear. Sent it right back.

Strange cut/length

If you have any extra tummy, this is very tight through the mid-section and across the bust line. I thought it would be especially flattering in that area because of the pattern. In terms of length, I'm approximately 5'4-5'5 and it is quite long and overwhelming. My guess is that you need to be on the taller side and flat mid-section to have this dress look well proportioned.

Cute but a little small

The dress actually zipped but the tightness of the arms and chest made it uncomfortable and look a little inappropriate. The waist and skirt were lovely! I wish the arms were not so tight.

Thank God for Spanx!

Looked good but a bit long for my 5'4" frame. Also, was very snug in the waist. I could not have worn this without spanx. I liked it but didn't love it, however, it was a nice change from what I usually wear.

Love it!!

This is a great work dress. The black fabric at the waist is stretch so it hugs in the right place. I wasn't sure about the asymmetrical hem but it looked fine. Good construction. A bit large in the shoulders but I tend to always get dresses altered to shorten the shoulders, so I think that's me, not the fit/cut. Thinking of buying it....
