WAY too long. Short might be in the name but it's easily lower calf if you are 5'4"-5'5"

Nice material, runs large, difficult to get on.

Beautiful dress out of the bag. Lightweight so I was a little cold. Little snap buttons on the side made it challenging to put on. I ended up snapping the buttons one handed. Had to wear a camisole as the neckline was low. Not my favorite rental but not the worst. Still looked nice but the dress ran large on me. Length fell an inch below my knees. (I'm 5'9)

Beautiful dress!

I love this dress! I think it would be more flattering on someone taller and curvier than me but I still think it is beautiful. It is awkward to get on and off, going over the head with a side zipper and snaps but that was a minor inconvenience for such a pretty dress.

Beautiful silk, fun print, nicely constructed

Loved this dress for a work event. Very well constructed and nice details. The blue star print made it fun. Wa a little big on top for me so wore a cami underneath.

Rent THIS dress

The material and fit are beyond flattering and comfortable. Only downside is the stupid clasps the designer decided to use instead of the zipper on the side of your rib cage.. if you have a big bust they will occasionally pop open with a quick movement. (Thankfully I paired this with a blazer so it did not matter)

Wanted to love but did not

I loved this dress on the site and it's very cute in person but the fit is really weird. I originally ordered a 0 which I couldn't get over my shoulders. A 2 fit but as people note the side zipper is weird and goes halfway with two buttons that don't stay buttoned. It was a lot longer on me than the picture shows and the chest was too large and I had to use a safety pin with it. For my body type It needed to be shorter and have less fabric around the bust area.

Gorgeous cut - but runs big

The dress is very pretty and the overall style is flattering. However, I found it runs large and if you're not tall enough and don't pair it with heels, it will likely appear dowdy. I'm borderline between a 10 & 12 and ordered the 12. Definitely needed the 10. The dress has a partial side zip and a couple of snaps above the waist. Other reviewers don't like this feature but I actually thought it was genius. I often struggle with side zippers and pretty much any zipper that has to cross over a waistline seam. Even if the dress is big, the zipper always gets stuck. So the snaps were much easier for me to maneuver! It's low cut but I fixed it with fashion tape. A cami would work well also. Instead of tying on the side I pulled it right in the middle to create a better fit / prevent it from just hanging there as it was a smidge too large.

Great dress but runs very large

I love this dress and will rent again but in a size (maybe 2 sizes) smaller. The fabric is soft and so fun to wear. The colors are beautiful and I can tell that it would be very flattering if it fit properly. I am usually a size 4 but would definitely need a 2 or smaller in this dress.

Gorgeous!

This is so much more interesting in person than it looks in pictures. The fabric is a deep blue with bright blue stars. The cut is flattering and the fabric very high quality. Rent it!

Wardrobe malfunctions a-plenty!

I have coveted this dress since it went live on RTR...and now that I have it I can't wear it! The dress is too low cut to be work appropriate (my workplace, anyway) - it was fine when I stood still but the moment I moved an entire bra cup was on display. Also problematic: for some reason Equipment chose not to go with a full side-zip for the closure; they instead went with a partial zipper and snaps. 1. I had to have my husband do the snaps for me because I couldn't properly fasten them myself while wearing the dress (he even messed it up on the first go-round); and 2. they weren't secure so any fast movement caused them to pop open. I also had some static cling issues with the fabric and the sleeves were a little long. I ordered a size 12 (I am 5'6", 160, 36D); true to size. Sadly returning. :-(

Beautiful fabric but have fashion tape ready!

the material is gorgeous but the front is super open. nothing a couple pieces of fashion tape couldn't solve, but something to keep in mind. the dress ran a little long, but paired with heels it didn't seem dowdy. I would rent this again.
