Felt like a graceful swan in this swan dress ;)

This dress was comfortable and true to size. I put a blazer over it to wear to work but it could definitely be worn for a fun spring or summer event. Got lots of compliments and I love that it had pockets!

Cutest dress I've ever worn!

This runs a tad small if you are on the border between sizes go up. I can usually do a 4 or 6 and the 6 is perfect. Print is amazing cut is flattering. I'm keeping this one for a few weeks, might even buy it. It's THAT great!

Cute, but the fit is unique

I wore this to work and to a bridal shower. It was very tight in the waist, but the torso was cut too long for me, so the shoulders were floating. It looked better with a cardigan on top. The fabric has no stretch.

Gorgeous stiff cotton

I've been waiting right get my hands on Draper James and I was not disappointed. Super structured fabric with rich colors and great cut. Small issue in the hips for me as the pockets flared out a little on my pear shape. Overall great dress and will rent again. I'm a size 4 top and 6-8 bottom and ordered the 6.

Effortlessly cute

Got this to wear to work. Super cute print. I normally am a 4 but after reading reviews decided to go with the 6 and glad I did. Its a little big in the chest area but i don't think i would have managed to zip a 4 up. Its a cotton material and super cute on. Other than the irregular fit, i would rent it again.

Fun and Flirty

I LOVED this dress! Between the pattern and the cut this dress is so playful and feminine! I would totally buy it and/or rent it again!! I got so many compliments! I was worried about the front flying up since the skirt material crosses in the front, but I didn't have any problems. I felt confident and it just added an extra something to my day!

Cute dress, nice thick fabric.

I received lots of compliments. It is slightly longer in the back, which I liked. It is fitted in the waist, so if you're between sizes, size up. Also, even though it's navy, it shows perspiration, you may not even realize it!

It's a gorgeous dress but certainly meant for petite figures.

Cute and flirty frock

I loved this dress! I ordered the 6 and the 8 and ended up wearing the 6 to the engagement party I attended. It fit like a glove. The bottom of the dress is definitely flouncy and more voluminous than I expected, which made the dress more "party" that it looked in some of the other review photos I saw. If you size up, the dress could be more work appropriate because the full skirt is longer. If you wear your true size, expect a fun flirty and feminine dress that is quite flattering and comfortable. Would consider purchasing this one, it's cute and versatile.

Love Draper James!

First Draper James dress I've rented and it didn't disappoint. Overall their stuff is sized small, so while I typically take 2, I'm a 4 in this and even a 6 in some of their other styles. Loved the pattern on this, received so many compliments!

Runs way too small. I'm normally an 8. 10 was too small. Shame, it's a lovely dress otherwise

I loved this dress. Fit beautifully, comfortable, flattering, and cute pattern. Lots of complements. Wore it to work and then to a baptism and brunch on the weekend. Would rent again.

Draper James is, as always, perfect

I love everything about this dress. The fabric is heavy enough to hold its shape and not blow around but not so heavy that it's hot. I would say that it runs true to size. I wear several different sizes depending on the designer and fit but I typically measure as a 4. I rented this in a 4 and it fits like a glove. I was going to wear it to my daughter's 2nd birthday party but I didn't get it in time. My fault not RTRs. I'll rent it again for sure! I might even buy it I love it so much.

My favorite rental!

I love love this dress. I rented it for work and held onto it to wear for a weekend party and it was perfect for both. The dress hit at the knee for me and was super flattering in hiding bumps and emphasizing curves. And bonus - the pockets are decent size and can actually hold things. I'm contemplating buying this dress as I can easily see this being one of my go-to dresses

I want to buy this dress!

If I could design the perfect dress, it would be this one. Perfect length, pattern, and details. I wore this for a vacation in Washington D.C. and easily went from day to night. Had no problem walking 11 miles in this dress either and received countless complements.

Best dress, perfect fit, fun design!

I'm in LOVE with this Draper James dress and can't wait to try more! I was so delighted that the bust fit and the waist was flattering and perfect, and even the wrap-skirt flap felt like full coverage, even when it was a little windy! It did get a liiitttle short when I was sitting, but I was wearing shorts for extra coverage so it was ok. Wish I had a photo--but maybe I'll get one when I rent it again!

Cute for a work conference but watch the cut

Wore to a conference and loved the fabric and the fit. However, the front folds of the skirt aren't connected, so any wind results in a Marilyn Monroe moment!

So many compliments!

LOVED IT! It was so unique but I ended up wearing it twice to two totally different place with different people (awards luncheon and church) I got endless compliments each time. The print is fun and it fit me like a glove. I'm a 34D and the size 4 was a bit tight in the chest but it was ok enough to work around. I loved this dress and considered buying it but I felt like it's something people remember. I still hated to send it back though.

Couldn't zip up

The fabric of this dress is solid, not at all flimsy. The length is mid thigh and I love that it has pockets! Unfortunately I couldn't zip the dress on top. The waist was fine but my chest is too big for a size 14. Too bad, cuz the pattern is cute and I was really looking forward to wearing it to work tomorrow.

Most adorable and flattering dress

I never write reviews but this dress was so amazing I had to. I cannot tell you how many compliments I got on this dress- it could not be more flattering. Hid my hips/butt, nicely fitted accentuating upper body. Absolutely perfect for a baby shower. I want to buy it!

Adorable Dress!

I loved this dress and got many compliments! The cut is really flattering. I sized up because a 6 wasn't available, which turned out great because the waist would have been snug in a 6.

Fit like a glove -perfect

Super fun. I loved it immediately because the fit was absolutely perfect for me. My bust felt supported and my waist felt perfect even though I am not so thin. I would get a week's worth of these in solid colors if I could and needed to wear this type of item for work often. Very professional cut and the wraps bottom was discreet. However, boyfriend thought the print was completely absurd and lightly teased about it all day. To be fair, the print was bolder than o expected. If you like animal prints and have a large bust with curves this dress should work for you and true to size.

Dress is Adorable

I initially received this in a 4 and could not zip it all the way to the top. I am large busted so the 8 fit perfectly on top and was relieved that the bottom half didn't flare out too much as I have zero hips. The dress made me feel feminine and I just loved this dress. I can see me renting this one again!!
