Wow! Great dress!
I cannot tell you how many compliments I received. I wore it for an important office meeting and felt confident in it. The best review I got was from my husband. When I walked in the door from work he insisted I was far to pretty in it to stay home so we went out to dinner. This is a dress I would buy in a heartbeat.

Such a Neat Dress
This dress is so classic and fit like a glove. The only downside I have to this is the lining. I wore stockings underneath this and the lining kept showing underneath the dress. Other than that, this dress was killer.

Perfect winter white outfit
Wore this sheath dress for a business meeting. Dress was thick enough where I was not concerned that you could see through however would mention that you'd need no show underwear as the sides are a bit thinner than the back and front panels. Overall, dress fit like a glove, felt like it was tailored for me!

Lady in white!
LOVE this!! Rented for a work conference in San Diego - got tons of compliments. It's gorgeous quality fabric, and it fits wonderfully. Not too tight, just right. Not baggy like some sheaths either. Beautiful. Will be renting again!

Great work dress
I was wavering between true to size and large. The fabric is stretchy and it probably runs a bit big, but I wouldn't have ordered down a size. I think if I had ordered a two, it would have been tight in the bust. The extra fabric wasn't unflattering and if anything, made it comfortable. Nicely made dress.

I ordered this and another dress for a date. This dress looked fine on me but was a bit basic. I chose to go with the other dress.

Nice dress but not great for the occasion
The dress runs a little small. The result was that I had some random guy tell me I was "looking good" in the airport. So, it's not that the dress is unattractive; just not for me for the particular occasion. I wore it for work and felt a little self-conscious in it all day.

Great for work, but not for curvy girls
Usually this brand is for people for less curves. I have curves and it fit fine around them, but was loose around the mid-section. The size was perfect though, cause smaller would've been too tight in the thighs. Very pretty, and had some stretch! A little on the shorter side, but still appropriate for work.

Great textures, high quality material and comfortable!
The only reason this dress didn't earn 5 stars is because it was almost too short for me. Otherwise, I loved it! The material is slightly stretchy and comfortable and the different fabric textures give the dress great dimension. Highly recommend!

This dress made me feel fabulous!
This dress was very versatile and well-fitting. I wore on its own with a colorful necklace to a party, and got lots of complements. I was also able to wear it to work in a very formal setting with a suit jacket. At work I felt like I looked fabulous but was not out-of-place. I am 5'1", so it was not too short, though it was close to the line for a formal work setting.

It was really cute, heavier weight and nice material. I had planned to wear this to work but I'm 5'10" and it was just too short.

I always find Theory works for me, this dress has a nice stretchy fit to it, details that accent curves and I received many compliments. Nice enough to go from work to a date or party.

Very nice dress, but unable to wear
This is a very nice dress that would have been flattering had I ordered the 6 instead of the 4. It was just a bit too small to pull off at work. I thought about wearing it anyway with a pair of leggings just because I really liked this dress, but it is so flattering in the bust that my chest appeared way too large for the work setting. I will probably try this again in a slightly larger size.

Loved the dress, but had some fit issues.
The different textures of the dress are super cool and make the dress unique. I did not like that some pieces fringed at the bottom-it just felt a little sloppy. Also, the torso fit pretty loosely which caused some bagginess/bunching up especially while sitting. Other than those two issues, I really liked the idea of the dress.

Got this dress in my first Unlimited order. I wore it to work this week and got lots of compliments!
The fit was great. I wanted to order at 2, but they only had a 4, however the 4 worked out perfectly as the fabric is slightly stretchy around the bum, so I think the two probably would have appeared too tight in that area for work. I'll definitely rent this again in the future for meetings or work functions.

Great white dress
The fit of the dress was perfect. Material is thick and stretchy. Only issue I has was parts were frayed (I think by design) and material caught in the zipper the first time I tried it on; it was ok after that.

A lot of compliments on this dress!
Fit was great - a little extra material in the mid section (I'm very petite) but probably best for when sitting down. Perfect for my bridal shower. Material looks heavy/warm but actually was very comfortable. I don't regret my decision to rent this -- it worked very well and was perfect for the occasion. Looks best with strappy nude heels which I had to run out to buy.

I will rent this again and again. I probably should have bought it. The material is great. It's not see-through. It's incredibly flattering. And it feels like a power dress. I wish I had a photo to share. Great rental.

Contrasting fabric made for a nice dress
I got this dress for work and received a lot of compliments. The dress was a little tight in the legs, but fit wonderfully everywhere else. My only complaints were that the slip kept poking out from underneath and the fabric at the bottom was frayed. The dress is very comfortable and the contrasting fabric was beautiful, but wouldn't be my go to dress to rent again.

Perfect Work Dress
This dress is the ideal spring/summer work staple. The white and grey aren't as monochromatic as the picture lead me to believe, but I like it even more in real life. Perfectly tailored, there was enough room in the mid-section to make this work appropriate. Not skin-tight by any means.

I rented this dress for my husband's holiday work party and absolutely loved it!!
It was well fitted with such a hint of class and sass! I loved the material... it was very comfortable and refreshing. The length was perfect for my 5'3 height. I'm a 34C and it fit perfectly. I probably could have gone down a size but i don't like the super tight look. Overall I loved my dress!

Great classic white dress
I was unsure about the size so I sized up just in case. Would have preferred to have it tighter because it bunched a little over the stomach but the dress was so cute! Has some stretch/give to it as well. Great material and very flattering

I ordered this dress for a daytime charity event, but it is so versatile it can be worn anywhere.
The fit runs true to size. I was worried that I might need to size up because it is white. However, the size 2 fit perfectly, and the material has a nice stretch.

Loose Top, Tight in the Hips
I wanted to love this dress, but almost didn't wear it because it fit poorly. It was baggy in the waist, and really tight on my hips creating an awkward shape. Luckily, the blazer I wore, hid the bagginess.

It fit nicely on a curvy body. The fabric has a bit if stretch to it and is just interesting enough to be more than a plain white dress for work. Easy yo pair up and no fuss

Great Dress
This is a great dress. I ordered a larger size than normal since it was form fitting and white. Every time I wear this, perfect strangers tell me how pretty it is. I returned the 10 and ordered the size 8. It's a little tight in the bust but fits better in the waist. I will probably purchase this one.

Awesome dress!!! Great for work!!!
This dress is awesome. I wore it at work with tan heels and a navy blazer and was so professional and on point. The 6 was a little loose in the waist and hips but that is fine because I was at work and I am in a very professional environment. Overall highly recommend it.

Great work dress
Fabric is stretchy which helps with my larger bust size (32E). The 4 fit perfect and was comfortable enough to wear all day for work. The dress had more detail than you can really see in the picture with almost a knitting on the front & back panel and spandex on the side. Would absolutely rent again for work.

FYI: Leather trim
The product details don't mention it but the tag on the dress does: the trim on the neckline and sleeves is lamb leather. Just an FYI for anyone that would be bothered by that. It fit great and I loved the color. There is a more obvious contrast between the fabrics in person.
