Pretty for work
It's a bit see-through- you will need a slip or tank and jeans to wear it over

Versatile dress but on the shorter side
Favorite thing about this rental was that it could be dressed up with heels or dressed down with flats/sandals. I rented the S and M. The S fit well in the waist but was very short. Went with the M which was looser in the waist but slightly longer.

Loved the weight and detail on the hem.
Tight in the bust for larger chested gals, I am going to size up next time and hoping it doesn't become too baggy. Easy to wear!

Did not wear the dress to my event.
This dress was very cute in person & I liked the detail BUT it was so so short. I am 5'7 (125lb) and this was unwearable, my BUTT was showing.

The everyday go-to dress
I rented this under my unlimited subscription and honestly could have worn this dress every week. It was perfect for drinks, dinners, concerts. It's versatile and can be worn with heels or flats. Other reviews mentioned it could be worn to work but the lace was too revealing on the thigh and might be a little to risqué for work. It works for every other life function!

Cuter in person!
The lace bottom adds a bit of flare. When you wear with flats you can wear to work and put some heels the lace looks shorter and sexy!

I loved this for an everyday dress. Super cute and easy to wear.
This dress was super comfy and cute. I will say it was a bit shorter than I expected and a bit more form fitting than other Equipment dresses I've rented in the past (I'm 5'5" and the lace bottom made it feel really short). I wore a pair of black biker shorts underneath and was good to go.

Wanted to love
Cute silk dress with lace bottom. It was adorable but since the bottom was see through it was way to short. The sheer part literally showed my butt when I leaned over. It would have been great as a bathing suit coverup but since it's silk I decided against it.

Light fabric for summer!
Rented this for summer vacation. Loved the fabric and the lace detail at the bottom, but unfortunately the dress was a little short for my 5'6" frame. Also, the buttons kept popping open, so if you have broad shoulders this isn't the best choice to wear.

Awesome dinner out dress.
Wore this dress out for an anniversary dinner. Perfect length, lace bottom is super cute. -- If larger chested, HIGHLY recommend sizing up, as the button at my chest was on the tighter side.

Polished Femininity
I rented this in anticipation of an unseasonably hot week in May in Philadelphia. I knew I would be running around during the day and that I'd be out at night, and I didn't have time to change. I chose a size medium for a looser, more comfortable look (which I think is more chic now anyway). As for the material, although it is silk, it really held up well over a few wears. I wore it multiple times (over 2 days) without having to wash it and didn't see any sweat marks. For each outing, I modified the dress slightly with different shoes and accessories. For daytime errands and lunch, a strappy gladiator worked well. For work meetings, I kept the dress buttoned up, and paired it with my black suede lace-up Stuart Weitzman flats,pearl studs, and Marc Jacobs black leather pleated bag. For a casual night out on a Sunday evening in a hipper part of town, I loosened two buttons, wore a black lace bra (peekaboo), black leather bomber jacket and 4 inch black Vince booties. If you are not sure what to bring to a fun weekend getaway this summer or you're hanging around for the weekend and have lots of plans, rent this dress. It is pretty and feminine without being too girly. It will hold up well in your luggage and won't wrinkle!

I wore this as a beach cover up on vacation.
Made for a cute beach cover up on vacation . The silk fabric did show its Wear as it was a but faded and not as crisp as pictured. But still cute and unique with the hemline

Bought it :)
This dress is great - I loved wearing it & bought it. I always love Equipment dresses but would say this runs a little smaller around the hips than others of theirs. Also, as other reviewers noted it's pretty short given that the lace bottom is see-through. Overall a beautiful dress

Pretty but so small
I love Equipment dresses. This one however, was incredibly small. I typically wear a medium but ordered a large because of the reviews. A large wouldn't even fit over my bust! And I have a fairly straight figure and not a significant bust. Shame I couldn't wear it.

Perfect dress to dress up or down
Loved this dress, wore with a denim jacket and wedge boots and also with a red flannel around the waist and ankle boots. Only drawback was that the top part was a little snug over my boobs and one of the buttons kept busting open.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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. :-)

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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!

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!
