Pretty, but ultra thin material.
I rented this dress for casual Fridays at work. However, the material was so thin, you could see everything under it, even smooth fitting undergarments would not work. I returned it without wearing it.

STYLIST REVIEW
In love with this Equipment dress! Running true to size, we recommend sizing up for back up. This style is loose fitting throughout the bust, midsection and hip area. The lace detailing at the hemline is absolutely gorgeous. This style can be dressed down for work or dressed up for a fun date night! Pair with strappy heels for a simple look!

Soft silk dress, great for flats
The lace on bottom is gorgeous - with the lace it's a bit longer...but the fit is flattering and slim. Love equipment dresses!

Super cute with tights but too short to wear without.
Too short, which I was surprised by the photo as it looks long. I wore tights which was a good solution but couldn't work in the summer. Could make a great beach dress but wrinkles easily.

SO cute, but definitely size up!
I am normally a small but unless you are straight up and down (no hips) you should size up. It was just a bit too tight and ill fitting so I never wore it.

Gorgeous and easy dress
I really love this dress. It fit me perfectly although the fabric is quite sheer and could possibly be slightly transparent during the day. I opted to wear this to an evening dinner and drinks event with girlfriends and it was perfect!

Comfy, cute, and stylish
I wore this dress to "Jazz in the Garden" at Smithsonian National Galleries Sculpture Garden picnic. Every summer the National Gallery hosts Jazz in the Garden every Friday at 5pm. Basically everyone comes with a picnic blanket, wine and cheese! It's great for people watching and soaking up the sun!!! Anyways it was perfect for this event because it was serious but fun. I could have wore it to an office job but also to a picnic! It was so comfy and fun!

Day to Night Casual
I wore this to work one day and ended the day at a Junior League Reception. It fit the bill for both. The material is comfortable. My major complaint is that it wrinkles rather easily. Is light, but not see through for summer, which is nice.

Cute, nice detail but way too short
This dress was much shorter than I was anticipating. I am barely 5'4 and just standing found the dress to be way too short...walking and sitting made it even worse. Unfortunately I could not wear because of length but really cute otherwise!

I'm 5' 7" and size 34DD- tight in chest- I should have rented a Large. Need a slip underneath if you're tall.

Great dress for multiple purposes.
Love this dress! It can be made more conservative for work, and more sexy for a date night. Its a little tight across the bum (that might just be me!), but I really love the piece. Its very versatile.

The lace at the bottom got so many compliments. People loved it.
The length is great, but this is definitely not for the larger chested girls. I tend to avoid buttons because I'm a 36DD and it's tough to get them just right, but thought I might be able to wear this open and loose. Even the third button up was tight on the bottom of my chest. You really need to be flat chested to enjoy it.

Wore it as a shirt; runs small
I really loved the mateiral and the trim on the end. For me it was too tight in the bust and actually too short to wear as a dress. So I paired it with black legging pants. Got lots of compliments.

Fits very small and short
I'm normally a small, got this in a medium based on other reviews but was still way too small. Unwearable. I'm only 5'5" and also found it too short. Go up 2 or 3 sizes.

Very pretty but too small for me
I rented the L. Equipment shirts usually fit me well but the dresses are too tight around my middle. Even if it had been a bit looser, I don't think I would have worn it - the lace starts right up near your backside, so too risky for a work outfit

This dress was chic and comfortable at the same time and sexy without being skintight. I wore it to work and also a birthday dinner you can easily dress this down or glam it up with shoes and accessories. Would rent again!

Perfect LBD!
Love this! The casual shirt dress style is dressed up just enough by the silk fabric and wide lace hem to make it easy to wear many different ways. I paired it with sneakers and a leather bomber for my commute, and then heeled sandals for work. Looked great both ways! Silk fabric is completely opaque, but still light and breezy - great for a warm day. I found the fit to be right on - skimmed the body without being clingy or baggy in any area. The lace hem was larger than expected, but this allowed for an otherwise fairly short dress to provide some extra coverage in a flirty, sexy way. Great dress!

Not made for curvy Latina
So I love this dress and I did wear it and got complements. The material is is ultra soft and has a little stretch (thank goodness!) the lace detail is to die for! I'm a curvy 6 and sometimes 8, I thought this was a flowy dress but if hugged every curve and the buttons were about to burst lol

Almost kept it!
Love this dress. So many compliments. My coworkers adored it. I also wore it to date night. Comfortable, classy. However, if you are tall take note of the lace bottom. I am 5'5" and had to take care when sitting because it could show too much!

Simple, classy, chic
This was simple and beautiful - liked the design, and loved the compliments from my husband. The hem was a bit rough after sitting for a while - it's right at that length where it leaves an imprint on the underside of your upper leg - but that was minor. I'd give it 4/5.

I had to rent it three times from small to medium to large since it runs very small. The L was perfect and got so many compliments that I bought it.

Cute, but not incredible
The dress was cute for an everyday summer look. The fit was fine, breezy and comfortable. I especially liked it with white sneakers and the red Anya Hindmarch crossbody I rented. The overall look was adorable, but the dress itself isn't mind blowing. The silk seemed a little faded and the lace was coming apart a little bit. Not super noticeable, but def made it feel a little less special.

Tight in the hips
I absolutely love the look and feel of this dress! The lace is the perfect summer detail but be careful if you have a conservative event, when you sit down the lace shows quite a bit. The fit is pretty tight in the hips for me. The fit is straight so if you have more going on in you bottom I would consider sizing up. I'm an XS and I know I could have worn the small and it would have been perfect.

Awesome rental!
I wore this to teach a staff class and it was just perfect. Comfortable, attractive and expensive looking, this dress was a no brainer to wear while talking about wine for 3 hours. It is body skimming yet forgiving in the waist & hip. The shoulders were perfect with no tightness in the armholes- unusual for European brands. I loved wearing this dress as much as my staff loved the wines!

A bit short, but comfy and cute
This dress is simple but the details on the trim make it beautiful. It was very comfortable for a hot summer day. However, it was short and the trim exposed a bit too much skin for work...that is, my rear end was visible through the trim details when I stood up, was walking for a bit, etc. Be prepared to be pulling it down or wear with leggings

Cute dress but not work appropriate
Cute dress but not work appropriate. I use most of my RR rentals for work, where the attire is business casual. Unfortunately, this dress is super short for someone my height (5'8). I wasn't able to wear it to the office... Will wear it to dinner with BF instead.

Great day to drinks dress
Runs a size small compared to other Equipment blouses and dresses I've worn. Very cute dress though. The lace detail at the bottom makes it more versatile - a perfect dress for desk to drinks. Would absolutely recommend.

Sexy and hip
I debated about renting this dress for unlimited. It looks kind of plain on the website. Boy, was I wrong! It's super cute and hit me about mid-thigh. I'm a 4 and I would say that's about as large as one could go for a small. I'd rent it again. :-)

Perfect for a daytime
Very comfortable and cute. Would have been too short for work but was perfect for a casual day out playing tourist. I could see this being something I'd wear all the time if I owned it. I probably wouldn't dress this up like other reviewers have said.

slimming and sexy
The fabric sheen and feel, and the lace detail at the bottom, is lovely. However this runs VERY small and isn't good for women like me with curvy hips. It's made for pencils.

One of my favorite RTR dresses!
I've rented this dress twice now and absolutely love it. It does run a bit small in the bust area but there are buttons so you can unbutton if needed. The lace work on the bottom is so intricate, yet thick. This dress is perfect for traveling and can be dressed up or down. Love it!

Cute everyday dress
Loved the look of this dress, unfortunately it was too small to wear. I am a solid medium in Equipment tops, so I figured a dress from them would be no different. If you have any sort of hips you're going to want to size up in this dress. While I was able to get the dress on it was too tight through the hips and thus too short. I will definitely rent it again, but in a larger size.

Cute
The dress is cute, but it didn't button around my bust. A large would have been too big for me as the rest of the dress fit me perfectly, if not just a bit big. It is very short though! I am all legs so when I read that something is short from other reviewers, I think, "Great! I'm not afraid of very short!" but the lace trim on the bottom came up to my butt! If you don't have a large chest and are shorter than 5'7, this would be cute for a day around town!
