A very fun Valentine's date dress
The dress definitely runs large--the top part was a bit roomy even in the small. It's also worth noting that the hook and eye clasps on the bust aren't super secure. But overall I had a lot of fun wearing this cute little dress and my fiancé really enjoyed it too!

Beautiful but too big.
The dress was way too big for me so I couldn't wear it. What a shame as the color looks great!

Low cut, ok fit but not my favorite
This dress was a bit tricky to maneuver because of the low cut front and opening in the back; it seemed any bra either showed in front or back. The color was great but I would not rent again, the pockets added unnecessary bill to the midsection area. I wore it, but ended up wearing a leather jacket over it all night because the fit was awkward

Dress was perfect- so fun, comfortable, easy to wear!
I highly recommend this dress! I was skeptical because it was so new that it didn't have reviews, but I am so glad I got it. The lace is beautiful and, even though I'm not always a fan of pleats, they complimented the lace really nicely. In regards to fit, I had a little trouble in the shoulder/arm area. It was just a little big - fine to wear, and if I didn't point that issue out I don't think anyone would've noticed. In regards to length, I think the description is a little off. It says 33". I am 5'2" and literally used a tape measure from my shoulder to see how long it would be and it came at just above my knee (Because I am so short, I am constantly afraid a dress will go past my knee). Instead, it came about mid-thigh. I preferred this, especially since I was just going to a "Fall Ball", but be aware of that if you are tall. Additionally, I rented this before the dress pictures were on the model, so I never saw the back but was pleasantly surprised by the cut out (ended up wearing a bra that has sticky straps because of the cut out - braless is also a potential because the v neck actually has two lower hooks if you wanted to go for that look). And it had pockets! Wore it with nude pumps!

Beautiful color, soft lace, and pockets
Pros: The deep color of this dress is beautiful! The lace is high quality, modern, and soft. The full skirt twirls beautifully which was a key feature I was looking for to wear to dance at a wedding. I didn't even have to worry about seeing under the skirt because the lining underneath is more narrow and stays down. The pockets are obviously an awesome feature. The cut out in the back keeps it fun and young, although a bra band will definitely show, so I didn't wear a bra. I didn't have to worry about wearing petals because the fabric is thick enough in front. Cons: I was surprised the small was too big, and even the x-small was too a little loose on me. Under the arms flared out a little for some reason and I had to use small safety pins to fold it back. Also one side of the front neckline seemed uneven and would kind of bend forward when I leaned forward. The skirt was a bit shorter than I would have liked but not too short.

Great dress!
I read that the dress ran big, and medium was unavailable, so I went with a small. The deep neckline actually has two hook & eyes so it can be less revealing. SUPER short (I am 5'6") but paired it with flats to make it less noticeable. Fitted through waist, was able to wear a regular bra, and pockets are a plus! Loved the dress!

This dress was perfect! Nothing too fancy, but still a festive color.
I loved this dress. I saw that it seemed to be really short, but since I am short, it worked out. The dress was about mid/lower thigh on me. The fit was great! It was comfortable to wear all night and looked amazing! Since I am small enough up top, I just didn't need to wear a bra, so the back opening wasn't an issue as all. My only complaint is that the hooks that hold the top more/less together seem to always look they are busting open! No matter how high up or low you hook them. Not a huge deal, but seemed odd since I know I was not bursting at the top - there was plenty of room.

Wore this to a holiday themed housewarming party.
This runs large. I ordered the small but the armpit area was very loose. The hook and eye broke when I touched it, so I wore it with a keyhole look (which worked out okay!). Very cute dress. I loved the color.

I wanted to love this dress...
I took the advice of others and decided to get the small as my backup vs. a large. I typically wear a medium in everything, but as others stated they believed it ran large. The medium was huge, it looked like a bag on me, so I figured the small would be perfect, but it was quite the opposite. It was too small :( my boobs were squished and it fit at the waist: however being short, it created unflattering gapping in the back since I couldn't pull the dress down to sit lower on my waist (I have hips). I love free people so I was EXTREMELY disappointed.

The dress made for a wonderful night of being fancy with all my closest friends.
I ordered the large because I thought I'd need it with my bust (36F), but the medium ended up fitting really well. This dress runs very large, but even with the two hooks in the front, it is still pretty low cut. I ended up using a safety pin to keep this dress appropriate for the party I attended. I was still able to wear a normal bra despite the cutout in the back and the plunging neckline, but people probably would've seen my bra without the safety pin. It is a little short, not too bad, but don't bend over too much. I was receiving compliments all night and I wish this picture wasn't the only one taken, because my hair is in the way and the lighting is poor for a good view of the dress. Also, the pockets make this dress the absolute best!

A night out in Indianapolis with friends was perfect pre-finals de-stress!
This dress was very comfortable and it had POCKETS. My only issue is that I had to wear the small because the top didn't fit me well, thus it was a little short. I would very much like to rent this dress again. 10/10 would recommend

Perfect Holiday party dress!
I LOVED this dress! I was a little nervous about some of the reviews and worried it might have gaping arm holes, but it fit me perfectly. I am 5’3” and it hit me mid-thigh, so it is on the short side, but really, unless you plan to be picking stuff up off the floor, the lining keeps you well covered. It is low cut in the front and you can’t wear a regular bra with this dress. I thought I’d try to go braless, but there is zero support in this dress, so I ended up using a nu-bra which worked perfectly. The front has two eye hooks that you can use to close up the plunging neckline, but I only opted to use one to hide the nu-bra clasp. I got TONS of compliments all night. I didn’t think I would like the pockets, but they came in handy since I was able to keep my lipstick in my pocket all night.

People liked it.
The dress was pretty and when I first tried it on I liked it. I wore the medium bc it fit best on top. But as the night wore on and I sat in the dress the lining would ride up too far and it was uncomfortable.

Didn't work out for engagement photos
I rented this dress for engagement photos. I loved it, and a SM was a bit large on me. It just didn't fit with our theme. If I ever needed a more casual dress I would go for this, I may even end up buying it.

The dress was a good fit, although it was very low cut. It was perfect for a low key winter wedding.
One of the clasps that held the cleavage part together was extremely loose and hanging on by literally a thread. It fall off really early in the night and I had to reenforce if with a safety pin.

Very short!
Rented this for a Valentine's Day dinner. The XS fit well overall but was SUPER short. I'm 5'2 and definitely wouldn't recommend this to anyone much taller. I almost didn't wear it, but with tights, boots, and a cardigan, it was okay. The bust has two hook and eye closures so you can show as much cleavage as you want (I have one undone in the pic). I was able to wear a regular bra - just shortened the straps a bunch to raise the back of the bra up. Overall a good rental for the shorter ladies!

This dress is so flattering at the waste, its much more low cut than on the model!!
The sleeves were a little too loose! But the dress fits well other than that. I got a medium and large because free people usually runs smaller but I ended up wearing the medium with extra room!

Loved this dress, pretty color and the perfect combo of casual/dressy for date night
Loved this dress, slightly loose on the top especially with the cutouts so I wound up going braless, length was perfect... wore it with black tights to make it more wintery and it was perfect.. would have preferred the XS so it was tighter/better fitting on the top

I wore this dress to a Christmas party.
I normally wear a size 2, and I ended up wearing the XS in this dress. Even though I wore the XS it was still a little large in the waist. The bust was so close to perfect but, I am a little top heavy (30H). My top stretched the fabric slightly, and you were able to see a gap in the center were there are hooks. The hooks allow you to decide how low cut you want this dress. I had two hooks, and used them both.

Very easy, comfy dress that looks great too!
I wore this dress to a party and its very cute and fun. It definitely runs large though. I usually wear an 8 and could easily wear the small. A couple people reviewed that they couldn't wear a bra with with but I didn't have any difficulties wearing a bra or keeping it hidden in the back.

Sending two sizes was great! My fit was right between the large and medium and I got to choose!
Large was a little too big for my chest, medium hugged my love handles a bit too much, but I'm being picky-- overall, the dress is very forgiving and fits well.

The dress fit true to size although there is no give in the fabric. It's short and low cut, but not over the top. I received many compliments on the color and style. Loved wearing this dress!!

Loved the color and back cut out, length was definitely short though.
I rented this for a couple's wedding shower. Even though the fit wasn't quite right, I got a lot of compliments on it. I usually wear a 4, but even the XS was large on me. I'm small chested so I expected it to be a little large, but I had to hold my hand over the front every time I bent over to pick up a drink or food (even with both front hooks clipped together). I didn't notice the gaping armholes that others have commented on, but I definitely needed bigger boobs to fill this one out. The waist and skirt fit just fine, though the length was pretty short. The lining on the skirt was tighter than the lace overlay, but I still had to wear black leggings otherwise I would've mooned everyone when I leaned over. The back cut out is super cute though and the height was perfect so that a standard bra strap could be covered. Overall, I really liked the dress but wouldn't rent again because of how large it was in the chest area.

Great dress for a night out.
Runs large, I suggest 1-2 sizes smaller. Wore this to a Melanie Martinez show with a huge statement necklace, a funky clutch, and silver heels. Probably won't order it again but definitely is a great dress for an evening out.

This was the prefect party dress for both my brother's birthday and a romantic Valentine's dinner.
When I got the dress, I didn't want to take it off! I wore it with a black V-neck camisole because the neckline was VERY LOW. As in, the hook and eye to make it higher was at level with my sternum. However, the cami created a lovely sweet-heart neckline effect (and helped keep me warm in February weather!) Also worth noting, the pockets were great. I think I need to buy this dress, and soon!

This dress is a beautiful maroon-purple! I love the pockets! I am always about pockets on dresses!
I was surprised that the small fit me! At first I put on the medium and felt that it was too big, especially in the top. I had the free back-up size and I am so thankful that I had the small available as well. I LOVE the neckline of this dress! It's low but not inappropriately so. I am short so this dress is a good length for me, but on taller girls this dress would probably be a tad too short. I did notice that while sitting, I was mostly sitting on my own bottom not on the dress - to give you an idea of the length.

90th birthday dinner at a banquet venue.
Dress was pretty but it runs a little large.. I did find it to be a bit low cut so take a safety pin everywhere you go just in case the pins that hold this together breaks (happened to me). I'm 5'1 so the length was perfect. Not too short, but not knee length either.

This dress was so easy to wear and a great color!
Dress was very easy to wear and the color really popped. I'm on the shorter side (5'2") so the length was fine for me, but I can see how it would be short on you taller gals! The XS fit, though a little more snug, but was WAAAAAY too short. The pockets made it easy to have my phone at arms reach for all of those wedding candids! A ton of compliments on the dress. Would definitely rent again!

Cute and comfy!
I absolutely loved this dress! I wore it for my engagement photos and was really comfortable in it the whole time. The dress felt fun and flirty and was a good length for someone of my height, though I could see how this would be really short on a taller person. The hooks at the neckline were really loose though, and one fell off so I had to use a safety pin to keep the dress closed and not too revealing. Overall, I was very satisfied with this dress and was really happy I chose it.

Perfect for a Fraternity Semiformal!
This dress was SUPER comfy and just the right length to be sexy and still let me feel covered. I was pleasantl surprised to find it had pockets too! I normally wear a Medium or size 6 dress, but I was drowning in the medium of this dress, so I was super excited I got the small instead of the large backup. I wear a 36C bra and the top was a bit large for me, but no bra was necessary! There are clasps on the front so you can decide how much cleavage you want to show, but the bottom one was broken on the size 6. Overall it was the perfect dress for the occasion and I was super comfy. Definitely get your back up as a size small!

STYLIST REVIEW
Bust: 36 A/B, Waist: 30-32, Hips: 40-42. This dress is a great. casual option for date night or every day. I found it runs a bit large, so be sure to size down as your backup. Additionally, there is no bust support, and this is not an option to be worn with a standard bra. You will either need a Nubra, or a plunging bra option. As far as body types, I says it good for all shapes, even baby bumps (If you are carrying, you may want to size up instead of down). As far as length, this piece hit me at about mid thigh. I'd pair this with a cool blazer, boho earrings, and some funky booties. The color of this dress is a deep cranberry, and the fabric has no stretch at all.

Short & sexy but comfy & fun to wear
I wore the small to make sure the top fit well. It's low cut and the medium had to much gappage (is that a word?) under the arms. It's a short dress either way but wearing the short made it extra short. I didn't feel uncomfortable though. The cool thing about the neckline is that there are hook-and-eyes, so you can make the dress more or less revealing. Love the pockets. It's a very flattering dress. Can't wear a regular bra.

Great color and fabric
I usually wear a size of 10 and have a very hourglass shape. I am also on the busty side of 36D. The dress fit a little big in the waist and shoulders. It showed my bra on the side and looked loose. For a night out, it definitely didn't matter. Lots of cleavage and short. Great for going out. Super comfy

She's a cutie!
This dress was worn on my 1 yr dating anniversary. A pretty dinner and a movie night dress. Cute, comfortable and eye catching. The fit was true to size, I wore a small. I'm 5'8 and 125lbs, a 32DD or 34D conversion. I wore this bra-less with lift tape and two sided fabric tape. I think because of my height only when k say down it rises up and my bottom was nearly touching the seat. No problem when standing, it was long enough. I'd take a chance in this if you are considering it, you won't be disappointed! Did I mention I love the color on my skin-tone?! I do!!!
