Super Cute!

I loved this dress! It's so cute and fun to wear! If the XS was available I would've rented it instead of the S (Free People runs big y'all). The material is a thicker knit, but it didn't make me hot, it also has a good amount of stretch in it. Loved wearing this!

Cute dress. Runs big

I am normally a size 2 but ordered a small. It was so big that I couldn't wear. It looked like a tent. The dress was cute and I would order again in an XS.

Loved the color combo

I wore this for my birthday and it made me feel special! I wore pasties with it because the arm holes are pretty big and would show any normal bra. It runs big but I think it's meant to be loose, which actually looks cute. The material is nice and sweater-like but not too warm. I really love the colors on this dress also.

Awesome color!

This dress was a beautiful pattern with vibrant purple. The fabric was thick and luxurious. I paired it with thigh high boots and it looked great! It's not form fitting so I felt very comfortable all day. Got many compliments!

Not worn, runs very large.

I wanted to love this one, but it was just too big, couldn't wear it. The small was the only size available, so maybe the XS would have worked. The pattern was very pretty, though!

Free People Amelia Knit Mini

I really loved this dress! I only gave it four stars because it was very short on my 5'8 frame. It does go perfect with black tights & booties if you are tall and considering renting this dress. The pattern is very unique, and the cut of the dress is very flattering even though it is short. Absolutely go a size down if you consider renting this dress! I'm 5'8 and typically a size 6-8, and the size small fit great with a little room to spare.

Perfect for Girls Day

I originally ordered the XS and had the S sent as my backup size, and was glad I did because the XS was a bit short on me. Even though the S was a little bigger on me, I wore a more padded bra to fill it out it. It was perfect for a Girls' Day filled with shopping, food, and drinks. I got many compliments. I would definitely recommend this dress, and would rent it again

Such a fun dress!

This dress definitely ran large. I ended up wearing it with a big belt to give my waist definition. The colors and pattern are interesting and gorgeous. I wish I had ordered a size down.

Very flattering!

If you are pear shape like me this dress is perfect! It's short but with tights it looks perfect. Fun and festive for a cocktail party. Thicker fabric so better for winter.

Super cute and versatile!

Absolutely loved this dress. It has thick fabric and was a good length for my petite height. I am also very muscular on top, so I did not have problems with the armholes being too big/gaping. Can see that being a problem with non athletic shoulders/lats. Small fit me and still gave me a shape, which is good for someone hourglass shaped and petite. It can def be dressed up or down.

Super cute and fun mini dress

The look, fit and cut of this dress were great! Thick fabric. Runs a little big. Received tons of compliments all night. Highly recommend especially if you are petite. I am 5'2 and it was still short.

I've rented it twice!!

I love this dress. So much so I scoured the internet and found my own! It's colorful, flirty and very comfortable. It does have longer armholes and is a tad short but I wear a sports bra and boy shorts underneath and worry not. The material is thick so it's great for an afternoon event on a cooler day.

Cute dress but nothing special

It was a cute dress for work. A bit short so I wore it with tights. Just an everyday dress! It also has some wool in it so even though its sleeveless I was pretty warm.

One of my favorites yet. Definitely short...probably too short for work without really dark tights but felt so cute and sassy. I wore with a little black jacket.

Perfect for cold weather

Wore this for a baby shower and paired it with tights because it was again, a cold day in NYC. It flowed nicely, the dress seemed darker in person though than in pictures.

This dress was perfect for my banquet. It does run a little shorter but it wasn't close to where I would be uncomfortable. Got lots of compliments! Would totally buy if I could.

The dress was really comfortable, super soft, but thicker fabric. I could have worn the small, but the arm holes were a little larger than I liked.

Loved it

I always love free people dresses and this one is no exception to the rule. The color was perfect for me, being 5 foot I always worry about how short the dresses are this one was perfect just above my knee it was very flattering and I can't tell you how many compliments I got on this. I apologize for not taking better photos but I don't generally like to take photos of myself so this is good as I can get.

Super cute but it is SHORT!

Beautiful color and bump friendly. But I am just shy of 5 feet and it was barely covering my bottom. Must wear with leggings if any taller! It's a stretchy material that looks like it's pilling but it's just the fabric design. Love the color.

Cute Birthday Dress

The fit and length on this dress is TTS. The fabric was a bit heavier/thicker than it thought, but it was fine for a late summer evening. The dry cleaning smell really sits so take out of the bag and air out once you get it. The fit looks like it would be a swing style dress, but there's actually a (slightly unflattering) horizontal seam at the hip. It can make the fit look dowdy. Overall, I liked the dress, but I wouldn't rent it again.

Cute - but short and runs large

Very cute, runs large. I wore a small and am usually a true medium. Also currently 5 months pregnant and small still fit the best. Definitely very short in the back, especially if you have a butt. But overall it was cute and comfortable.

Easter Casual!

The most comfortable, relaxed dress with a flirty twist! It was a stretchy cotton material - very soft and a little thick. I couldn't tell if it ran large or was meant to be looser - the S was confortable and just short enough - pair it with flats or scrappy sandals.

Pretty and comfortable!

I normally wear a size 8 in dresses and the small was still semi loose on me! Material is great quality. Definitely on the short side. I love that I could just wear a racerback bra with it and it didn't show at all!

Retro goodness- and lots of room to eat and still feel sexy!

Reviews say dress runs large, but I think it's supposed to fit a little loose. If you want something form fitting, size down. But I happened to like the loose feel, great for eating and dancing!

Comfy, Cute

I rented this to wear for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. (I rented early not wanting to take any chances on shipping and quantity available.) It's comfy, I'll be able to move around and fyi, eat what I want to without feeling icky in it. The dress is loose, but not baggy. I'm short, so it's not as much as a mini-dress on me as it might be for some. I'll happily pair it with some tights and boots. Great rental.

Fun and Flirty

This dress runs true to size but gives some breathing room. Super comfortable and flattering fit. The material is actually thicker than what I had anticipated but it was still perfect for spring like weather. I rented this for a Sly and Family Stone Tribute Band concert and the print was perfect for the event! I ended up wearing it for one of my own gigs at a casino and got compliments all night! Definitely worth renting!

Perfect Transition Dress

I wore this dress to work and then a work cocktail hour after and it was perfect! The material was thick and woven and perfect for the autumn. It was also stretchy, which made this a comfortable dress to wear all day and night. I was worried about the higher neck because, they can sometimes be too tight and uncomfortable, but this had enough stretch to not feel like I was choking. I wore this with a cardigan, so I could wear a standard bra, but if you're baring your shoulders, you should opt for a strapless or racerback bra. I got a ton of compliments on this style and I was comfortable so I definitely recommend it!

run large and short!

great dress for fall, loved the deep purple. free ppl usually runs large so even though i'm typically a 2/4 i get an XS and it's still got plenty of room. if you're even smaller than me, be prepared to have it run v large. i'm also only 5'3" and this was a mini dress on me, which is fine w tight/leggings under. arm holes are cut pretty deep so a razorback or sports bra works best. highly highly recommend for day or night semi-casual. v comfy, thick but not a sweater material

Perfect, fun dress for day or night!

This was definitely in my upper echelon of favorite rentals. It is super roomy, flattering and fun. I'm relatively tall and was afraid it would be too short, but the length was perfect. I wore it to my work holiday party and was flooded with compliments.

Comfortable and great lines!

I rented this dress for a wedding in the fall - the material was thick enough that with a jacket I could be outside without being cold, but still very light. The colors are great -- not too flashy but really beautiful. I wore with black wedges and loved it! I am 5'3" and the length was perfect for me (and I stay way away from anything too short). You will love this dress!
