I loved the pattern with a pop of yellow. Very comfortable dress.
This was a really cute dress - I loved the pattern. I usually wear a 4 but there wasn't any give to the fabric so I ended up going up a size to UK 10 for a more relaxed fit. There isn't a whole lot of shape to the dress overall but the pattern gives the illusion of more definition at the waist, which was nice. The length was pretty short, especially noticeable when sitting. Overall, very unique dress that received lots of compliments.

Be bold - Be loud
Shift dresses are made for people like me, without a small waist. It's sexy and slimming. The material is awesome thick polyester, modern and edgy. It’s bold so be ready to get lots of attention.

Very short, unique and fun dress!
I loved this dress. It's sexy in a subtle way–with the flattering short hemline. Remember not to wear this dress if you want to dance with your hands up; I tried just that and the dress hiked up so high I practically exposed my entire bum. Seriously.

This dress was perfect for the rehearsal dinner I attended!
Very cute, was just a bit large but I went with a size up for length, it is pretty short.

You can't be missed in this.
The fit is definitely loose, which is as intended. The fabric itself felt very plasticky, which made me feel like I had a poncho on. I think I ordered a size too big so I cinched the waist with a skinny gold belt. Because of the craziness of the pattern, adding a belt didn't look too disruptive. The sleeves are a nice length (especially if you feel conscious about your arms) and the boatneck is flattering. I would actually rent this again but in a smaller size.

Amazing graphic dress
Wore to a benefit party. Opted for the size 6, but definitely runs a tad small. Thankfully I did not need to sit throughout the night! Still loved it!

Very cute dress that can be dressed up or dressed down
I wore this for a birthday dinner with my parents. it was my backup dress, wore with simple black flats for a more casual look but you could definitely dress it up. quite short! dont know that i couldve done heels with it and i am short. snug in the armpits (but i am big chested). definitely order up. very unique and fun. made me feel good even on a rainy depressing birthday day.

Loved it but really short!
I loved the print on the dress and the quality of the material but it ended up being way too short for me to wear. I'm 5'10" and I couldn't lift my arms without exposing my tush! So disappointing :-(

The easy return and the cute "Thank you" gift!
I loved this dress! It was insanely comfortable and I loved the material. However, I agree with all the other comments, it runs small, so if you have any sort of shape, you'll want to size up (maybe even two sizes). I'm normally a 0, but had to go one size up. The pattern is even better in person!

Cute dress, but runs really small in the hips.
The print on this dress is adorable, but I ended up not wearing it because it was too tight in the hips, causing the dress to lose its "shift" shape. The fabric doesn't have much stretch, so I don't think that it would be flattering to those with larger hips, as it does not cinch at the waist.

Loved the dress! I want to buying it.
Runs small all around. UK designers usually run small. So I went up a size and went with the 10. But all in all I LOVE THIS DRESS!!! I would rent it again!

Love the unique detailing on the dress
pros: The dress photographs nicely, but until you get to see the fabric in person it is difficult to see how beautiful the material is. can be dressed up or down. confortable cons: I found the square shape to be a bit unflattering, so I added the belt at the waist. It is more snug on the bottom hem but not too tight where you cannot sit down/dance. I wore a size 6, and it fit true to size.

Great dress for our anniversary!
I wore this dress to dinner for my 1 year anniversary in Napa. Like others have said, the dress runs SHORT but it worked for me since I'm only 5'4". I got it as my backup dress but decided it had more personality than the one I originally rented. The comments scared me so I ordered the 14 instead of my normal size 12. I wish I had rented the 12... The 14 fit but I think the 12 would have been just a little more fitted through the waist. The pattern definitely says LOOK AT ME! but it's really, really fun. I would actually rent this dress again, just in the smaller size. Also, the Rebecca Minkoff "Keep Your Cool Clutch" matches PERFECTLY. The yellow really pops but the size keeps it subtle. Loved it all!

Perfect Fit
I just LOVED everything about this dress! I wore it to the Beyonce concert so because of the length I had to be very careful not to raise my arms too high. It's short! The colors and fabric are beautiful. I received several compliments and felt absolutely gorgeous.

comfy, great for a relaxed night
great dress! It isn't super sexy, but I wore it for a girls night out and it kept me from feeling self-conscious all night like I would in a tight dress. I appreciate the very short length, which on me, was a normal mini length. It was a little snug in the bust, but nothing that couldn't be ignored. Despite being a shift dress, it had great shape on me. The pattern is very pretty in person, the photo doesn't so it justice.

HOT!
This dress was a hit! I loved everything about it! I received so many compliments on it. Before I chose it I was a little weary about renting it for a wedding, but it turned out perfect! I decided to pair it with lace up booties and dark lipstick to give it sort of an edgy look. Such a fun rental! The grandma of the groom could not get over the dress and kept saying if she were my age and looked like me she would have picked the same thing. The overall fit is great besides the waist area... it is really baggy so you just have to be conscious about that when posing for pictures, especially if it's from the side. I have legs and a butt so it hugged my curves in that way. Overall, baggy in the waist but everything else is perfect!

Felt like a Million bucks!
I have never had so much attention in a dress. I literally had random strangeras (including some hot guys ;) come up to me and tell me how awesome my dress was. It was super comfortable. Short, but really not too short, even for me and I'm 6' tall. I wore an 8 US which I think translated to a 12 UK and it was the PERFECT fit. The print is so cool and different, the yellow is amazing, and the fabric, while stiff, breathed enough to keep me comfortable in Raleigh, NC in August. I took a chance with this dress because it is way out of my comfort zone and I had an absolute blast.

Great dress!
Rented this dress for my best friends bridal shower, as previously reviewed it is on the short side and is tighter around hips and thighs. I usually wear a size 4 in dresses, rented the UK 10 and 12, ended wearing the 10. Would recommend to a friend!

This dress is cute but incredibly short!
I loved this dress by Emma Cook. I rented it as one of my dress options for my bachelorette party in New Orleans. The fabric is great and the print is so fun. However, tall women beware! This dress is short! I ordered this dress in a 4 and 6 and I could not wear either size. When I was standing it was very short but when I went to sit it showed everything.

This dress is super cute! I really wanted this dress to fit but it was just a little too wide. Length-wise, it was great, but the width was a little unflattering for a shift.

Fun shift if you can do a shift dress!
It runs small for a shift dress so I would go a size or 2 or whatever necessary up! I normally wear a 4/6 but got an 8 and a 10. The 8 was pretty good. Only just long enough though, yet pretty baggy for a shift dress. The material isn't slinky. It's pretty thick so just keep that in mind. I loved the print and loved the idea of a shift dress but it didn't fully come together for me.

Perfect for the event!
I usually wear a size 4, but after reading other reviews I got the 8 and 10. I ended up wearing the 8 because the 10 was so baggy, but it was very small around the hips which made it tricky to sit down. But all in all, loved the dress. Beautiful print and colors!

Made me feel beautiful!
I wore this dress to an art gallery opening & after-party. This dress was comfortable and fun. I felt very beautiful in it and received many compliments. At the time I was a size 4 or 6 but ordered up, based on the reviews. I am glad I did because I ended up feeling more comfortable in the 8, since I have a larger bust. Would rent again!

Cute but runs small
I have an athletic figure with a moderate size bum; but this dress was too tight in the hips and shoulders for my straight frame/bigger butt- really tight in the hips. Cute if you are straight and narrow.

Lots of compliments!
I had read the reviews so knew to rent a size up. It was comfortable - a little tight in the hips area but not too bad - but also quite short which I liked because it was a friend's wedding and I wasn't looking to be conservative. I would rent this again for a wedding or Rehearsal Dinner. I got a lot of compliments on it because it's unique and fun.

Perfect for any event
This dress is so unique with it's print and texture. I got many compliments and it looks great in pictures! The only issue I had is it does run a little small in the hips and butt area. I ordered the 10 (US 4) and 12 (US 6). I wore the 12 as it was more comfortable but it ended up being a little baggy in the stomach and lower back. The positives however out number the negatives and I highly recommend renting this dress!

Didn't even wear it. It just didn't look right on me.
Its a shift, so make sure you size up. The print is great but the dress overall just wasn't functional.

If you have hips don't rent this dress!
I rented this for a daytime Graduation/Mother's day party. I usually wear a 4 and rented the size 8 and 10 and even the 10 was tight in the hip area, I ended up not wearing the dress because it bulged up in the back which made it look very unflattering, I like the length as I am 5"1 and it looks like the perfect length.

Bold choice for a night out in NYC.
I liked this one, though, as others have commented, it runs very slim through the hips and is pretty short. I'd say that it's more for apple or straight and narrow shapes. It was a little spacious on me up top, but it didn't allow much room around the hips. I'd caution girls over 5'5" about wearing it without tights because it exposed a lot when I bent over at all. Otherwise, I liked the pattern and was satisfied with this rental.

Super eye-catching!
This is a pretty boxy fit, but not so boxy that it's unflattering. I think the boxy fit works because the dress is so short, your legs make up for it. And this dress is all about the legs :) The print was fun and eye-catching, and the material was a bit dense making sure that the shape stayed in place. So cute dressed up with simple strappy heels or down with flats or sandals. Would definitely rent again!

Awesome dress- highly recommended!
The dress is very flattering even though the fit is a little boxy. I could have sized down but I ordered my 2nd size larger because I was nervous about the sleeves not fitting my broad shoulders. I received so many compliments and would totally wear this again but there are too many pics of me in it on Facebook now :)

Great Color and Print for a NYE Party Dress
The material of the dress was unexpected but very cool. It felt like a wet suit and definitely held me all in. It was comfortable but a bit tight in the hips. Everywhere else it seemed to be true to size and the color and print were amazing. It definitely was a different take on a New Years Eve dress. I had a great time dancing in it!
