Perfect little dress for family thanksgiving dinner!

Loved this dress because it was flattering and stretchy---perfect for Thanksgiving dinner ;) I wish it was red and navy but it is actually red and black. However, the waist hit in the right spot and loved the length! Great work or family dinner dress!

Cute, runs large

Returning and getting the size S via Unlimited. I think it will fit perfect. The bust and waist were too large in the M and I'm a size 8.

Too Big

This dress just runs large. I thought the pattern was super cute, but the bust and waist ran really big. Unfortunately I couldn't wear it. Perhaps I'll try renting again in a smaller size.

Cute plaid dress

I ended up wearing this dress to work (was originally plannng to wear it to a Christmas brunch but it didn't come in on time). Runs large - i wore a small, but was very flattering and comfortable. Length was perfect - wore with black heals and tights bc it was chilly day.

Christmas Party Dress

Cute dress for a work holiday party. Cute but definitely runs large. I am a size 2/4 in dresses and this was a little big in the back and shoulders.

Runs large in waist

This dress is a nice soft fabric, but a little thicker than I was expecting. I wore with tights underneath. My only complaint is that it made my waist look larger. I recommend sizing down if you are pear shaped. Plenty of room in the hips!

Great fit!

This dress fit great! If you have a larger bust it is very flattering without being extremely revealing. Runs large...order one size down.

Great dress for the office holiday party!

Dress fit great and was definitely comfortable. I rented down a size for my back up and thats the one i ended up wearing. It runs a little bit long and the scoop front is quite a scoop, but its still a great dress. Material is almost that scuba type stuff but not quite.

Festive and Feminine

I rented this for Christmas Eve and it was the perfect holiday plaid. As other reviewers have said, it does run a little large and the scuba-esque material is pretty stretchy, so I'd size down for back-up unless you prefer a more relaxed fit. I'm a solid 6-8 and ended up wearing the S, for reference. Got lots of compliments and felt great all day/night!

So plaid I rented this dress!

Dressed it up for a big family Christmas party and turned right around wear to church the next evening. So versitle and comfortable! Length was right above the knee & the waist/bust had plenty of room for breathing (aka eating a ton). I wore the XS with sheer black tights and it ran larger on me than I would have liked. So I wish it was a little tighter at the waist. Overall: so classy, festive and comfortable!

stretchy material

This has a flirty young cut. It is stretchy and the fabric has a shine to it, which gives it a more casual look.

Totally okay, but not a favorite

This runs large -- I normally wear a 12 (which translates to an XL) but ordered a large instead, and the waist is looser than I would like. The fabric is stretchy and a good weight, but the texture feels a little cheap. This is totally serviceable, but I'm going to send it back after wearing it once, and I'm not going to feel super sad about parting with it.

Perfect for work-to-party!

I rented this for a work holiday party but needed to wear it to work all day too. It was PERFECT! Paired it with a blazer for work (pictured), then lost the jacket for the party. Got lots of compliments, and this dress is SUPER comfy too. Really loved it.

Cute print, funky fit

I typically wear 4 Petite. Regular fit sometimes ends up with a waste line on my hips. This dress did just that. Felt a little big too. I would recommend for taller women. Strestchy fabric and cute print makes it super comfy and nice option for dressing up and dressing down.

Good dress for work

I rented this for a wedding rehearsal, but i preferred a different dress that i rented. On paper, I liked the shape, but it fit a but funny. Not sure if it was too big or just an odd shape. The sleeves were either too short for regular long sleeves or too long for 3/4 length sleeves. Perhaps related to the size issue. But it did look cute with a black belt, black tights, and black shoes. I wore it to a research conference and received compliments. Probably wont rent again.

Super cute print and flattering cut

Wore it to work and recived complements all day long. The print was fun, the cut was great and the bracelet sleeve was a great touch. Ran a bit big so it wasn't ultimately a purchase for me.

Great dress

I liked the dress and loved the color. It did run a little large and should have gotten it in a smaller size. The cleavage almost made it inappropriate for work, but I think that could have been solved with a smaller size.

Feeling beautiful

It fit me well - however the sleeves were a bit big for me. I wore this outfit for a date night / girls night out. I think it would be perfect for work. It's conservative and stylish - Think upper east side prep look. I loved the material - it's thick - perfect to wear on a cold night.

Hmmmm....

The dress was fine, but the fabric & print looks really cheap in person. Also, if you have a large bust, this shows a lot of cleavage. It was a bit high waisted on me and seemed to accentuate my stomach. Not a fave.

LOVED this dress!

I loved this dress so much and would have purchased it but there was a stain on the bust. The dress was very flattering, comfortable, and great for the holiday season. I would say it runs large as I am 22 weeks pregnant and still fit into my usual size, whereas in other dresses I need to size up.

Flattering!

Flattering fit. Drapes nicely and has some stretch but not too tight. Well constructed and thicker fabric - covered for the fact there was no lining. Good to knee length 5'5". Loved.

Great dress for work. I wore this with black tights and a black turtleneck underneath. The dress was lower cut than I expected (hence the under layer) Great length and vibrant colors.

Perfect Holiday Dress

This runs very large and is super comfortable. It's not the most flattering and I wish I would have had a belt or something. But it does the job. It was great for my holiday party, but would also be nice for work!

Perfect modest holiday dress

I'm typically between a 12-14 and the L felt like a perfect but forgiving fit. I'm a 36G hourglass figure and his felt really flattering both at the chest (not too snug) and at the waist (not too loose or snug!). It is a strong pattern and a more modest cut, so perhaps better for taller ladies? Not sure how smaller sizes will fit on shorter ladies :) I wore a few times throughout the holiday season and got compliments every time.
