Perfect summer dress...
Light and airy with a flowing train style back. Fabric is perfect for travel since it doesn't wrinkle and rolls to pack. Under arms are deep to the ribcage so be prepared with a lace cami or crop tank underneath. Dress is navy and cream, not white as the picture may seem to some. Looked great in the wind showing just enough leg. Would be wonderful on a cruise or a simple summer beach wedding.

Cute pattern & comfortable fabric
I loved the pattern and flowy look of this maxi but like most other free people style, it runs BIG! I'm 5'8, usually always a size 6/8 and I tried the size Small on in this and it was still too big/ not very flattering on me. It may just be my body type since I'm more curvy rather then straight and narrow but I would still size down to avoid looking like your drowning in the fabric.

Mixed feelings
Loved the pattern and the top/back. It is definitely more grey than white. Wearing a bandeau or something like that is a must. It is quite long. I didn't like how the waist was a little wider.

Totally awkward cut!
You can't tell because of the way that the model is slouching but this dress is cut so strange. The arm holes are cut so far toward the front of your chest it's like a mini front halter. No bra is appropriate. I was able to make this look really cute with a black tank and a belt but it's not a good look alone.

Made me look frumpy.
I really liked the pattern on this dress but I ended up not wearing it. It didn't have any shape to it and just made me look frumpy. The arm holes are really low so you couldn't wear a bra with it. I tried on a black racer back tank top underneath and that solved the problem for me.

Perfect bday dress!
I wore this dress for my birthday night out with friends and I loved it! The fit is definitely supposed to be baggier, which is what I loved about it. I ended up wearing the small because the medium showed more side boob than I was wanting to show, but that was mainly the only difference in the fit. The armholes were still big enough that the bralette I wore under still showed. I would rent again!

Perfect festival dress - flowy and fun!
I've put on weight recently and was skeptical about heeding the other reviews and sizing down to an XS, especially since a S wasn't available for my backup size. The XS fit great, however, because the cut was loose enough that I did not feel at all constricted. The armholes are big and the material is quite thin, so I recommend a pretty bralette and boyshorts for underneath.

Flowy, casual and fun!
I read the other's reviews and saw it ran very large. I usually wear a medium, but ordered an XSR and it fit perfect! I'm 5'3" and it didn't drag on the ground (Everythingggg drags on the ground for me). As the others said, you do need to wear a bandeau bra or something similar because the arm holes cut really low. It looked so awesome when walking, the skirt flowed beautifully. Would definitely rent again!

Awesome versatile dress W/ POCKETS
First things first, the top of this dress has an interesting cut. If you are an A cup I'd say go braless and show a little side boob but everyone else will need to wear a tank or bandol under this. If you don't... the majority of your bra will show or you will have MAJOR side boob if you go braless. Secondly, it's really flattering and flowy. This dress moves A LOT! The print is great and can easily be dressed up or down. I wore it to an interview belted with a suit jacket, electric blue clutch and a statement piece cocktail ring. I also wore it to a friends BBQ with just a black lacy bra. Both situations I got so many compliments from friends, family and even people off the street. LOVE this dress, I want to own it and wear it every day! Sorry for no pic!

Huge, very long arm holes.
This dress is huge. I pretty must always wear a medium dress. I put this one on and knew immediately it wouldn't work. It is cut VERY large. I would reccmmend sizing down.

Beautiful spring weekend in DC
I rented this dress for a weekend casual outfit. It's a lovely lightweight fabric - I absolutely loved the way it flowed! It is such a cool piece! It's definitely more of a weekend piece because the arm holes go pretty low so you must wear a bralette or bandeau to get away with it. I'm a little over 5'3" and found it best to wear with wedges so I didn't step on the very back of the high-low hem. Definitely recommend it!

Fun boho chic outfit
Dress runs small. Wore a bralette with the dress, edge jewelry and cute wedges. Perfect date night outfit. Will probably buy this dress of I find it at a nordstroms !

Such a disappointment.
I rented this dress for an outdoor daytime wedding on the 4th of July. I did just have a baby 5 months ago, so I'm a little softer and larger than normal. The other reviews said the dress ran large, so I was hopeful that it would be forgiving of my post baby shape. This dress cut in all the wrong places. I am a classic hourglass shape, but this just made my butt look like a large shelf, and the front seam cut right across my "baby pouch", which was just horrible. Thank God I had the foresight to grab a few dresses off the clearance rack at Old Navy as backups, because I would have looked terrible wearing this dress! Unless you've got a rail thin figure, I don't see how this would look good.

Casual Summery Dress
This dress essentially has no shape to it. it is very loose and flowy. It looks strange belted, so there is really no way to make it more fitted. With that said, I really liked it for a casual day at my friend's outdoor party. At 5'6" I was able to wear flats and the back of the dress nearly touches the floor. The armholes are huge, so make sure you have a bra/tank that you want to show off underneath. The dress actually looked to be the lightest possible pink rather than white (though that may have been the particular garment). Overall, I enjoyed the dress and felt very cool on a hot day

skeptical at first, now i love it!
when i received the dress i was very very skeptical, but i've been converted. thoroughly. i'm typically btwn a 2 and a 4 and ordered the xs based on reviews. thank goodness. it fit with room to spare. the dress has no shape when you first put it on and the armholes are massive so you will need to work with it. i wore a charcoal razorback sports bra tank so i wasn't overexposed and used a thin beige belt to create a waist. threw on some cute flat sandals and i was ready for a day out. at only 5'3" i was really excited this dress was short enough for me to wear with flats without touching the floor. very rare! it also flows beautifully when you walk and even has pockets! general note, the dress looks black and very light gray to me. also if you're much smaller than me this dress may just run too large to work for you, but it's incredibly comfortable and versatile so i don't blame you for trying! i loved it so much i bought it :)

Tons of fabric
This dress was not very flattering, it didn't give you any waist whatsoever or any shape at all for that matter. I ordered a Medium, which is what I usually wear and it was huge. I was swimming in fabric.

Flattering Fit
It wasn't until I shared this photo on social media of my cat photobombing me, that I noticed the design of the cat's face on the torso of the dress. This dress has a distinctive, deep cut of the armholes that accentuates the arms and shoulders. There's nothing wrong with the dress; the armholes aren't too big, as other reviewers have noted. It just might not be to everyone's taste. Wearing a bra that peeks out isn't bad; wearers should choose a lacy bra that's meant to be seen. The rayon fabric is cool and perfect for late summer, up into early fall with a sweater. I loved the dress and wore it twice. However, I saw at least a dozen of them on the clearance rack at a department store, while shopping with friends, which immediately cut the wow factor for me. It's Rent the Runway, not Rent the Clearance Rack.

Holy Side Boob Batman!
It's large and baggy with a ton of side boob! Wore it with a black bralette and flops to the dog park. Good on a hot day when you're looking for something comfy and casual. Has pockets which I always love!

a different dress for everyday
I don't usually wear dresses like this (one of the reasons I love Unlimited--I get to try to many different things!) but I'm really glad I rented it. The print is more of a very light tan or nude color rather than a true black and white but it's still very pretty and has a nice graphic pop. The fit is very loose and flowy and it is quite low cut in the back and on the sides, so make sure you have a pretty bandeau or bralette to wear with it. I rated it four stars just because there is sort of a drop-waist with some ruching and it made me look a little hippy, but not enough that I didn't wear it. It's a great dress if you're looking for something a bit edgier and more interesting to wear for everyday, or maybe for brunch or a casual coffee date.

Love this dress so much I bought it.
The dress ran a little large so when I bought it I went down a size. Otherwise I loved it! It was so comfortable and it had pockets which was awesome. It doesn't really look like the photo in real life but it's still super cute.

Struggled with finding a way to wear it but it looked awesome with a black lace bandeau!
Not the best picture of the dress, but hopefully it helps show the cut of the dress. I am not able to be a part of the no-bra camp (thanks darling daughter!) but that would work really well with some fashion tape for a lot of girls! I bought a lace bandeau to wear under and it was great. I really liked this dress but it was a little out of my comfort zone. Fun for the bachelorette party at least!

The print and movement are very unique! And beautiful!
I actually wore both the small and medium of this dress and couldn't notice the difference. The dress is super flowy and drapey - great if you are looking to highlight your shoulders/decolletage rather than your waistline/booty. The arm holes go quite low - low enough to show the bottomside of your bra which depending on your age may or may not be okay.

Cool and causual
I loved this so much I bought it. The fabric is very thin and flowy but can be worn without a slip. I wore a bralette underneath, in black. The climate is very hot where I live and the dress code is very casual so this fits in extremely well. The large was very loose on me. When you walk this flows and feels great. Can be worn as a beach coverup.

Cute dress. Top is cut a little weird.
It does cut in a lot at the top so your bra options are pretty slim. It looks pretty good with a black bandeau though. Also the skirt is pretty see-through so you should plan to wear something underneath. That being said it was a super cute and comfy dress. Great for Thanksgiving in California. I wish this dress was part of my wardrobe.

This dress was super cute and flowed really nicely. I didn't get to wear it since both sizes were too big. I think the XS would have fit nicely.

breezy and casual for a hot sunny day
The dress is as expected- comfortable and easy. I wore this to a tennis tournament in Palm Spring and it worked great in the extreme heat. The arm holes are over-sized so expect to wear a bralette that will be seen. The waist seam is not flattering in the back, it fell too low and was across the widest part of my backside. I'm short (5'3) so a platform sandal was ideal at the end of the back when I was in flats the long back was dragging on the ground.

Flowy, airy, and super comfortable
Loved the "vibe" of this dress, but the fit is definitely large. I ordered a size down (small instead of medium) and it was still VERY large. I'm a 34D and while the top cut in some so it showed side boob, it cut so far down that it was at my natural waist! I ended up wearing a lace cami underneath in black. The dress looks navy and white in photos, but it's actually black.

ok boho dress but runs big
cute dress for summer but does run big. also like the other reviewers mentioned it does show a lot of side boob without the right undergarment. also true of what other pear shaped reviews mentioned of can be unflattering at some angles depending on how you move. i wore it with some strappy sandals and a light drapey black cardigan to go with the boho vibe. cute weekend look for the spring/summer and fun rental as the back floated when i walked. wouldn't buy, but cute for a rental for a casual saturday look.

This dress was so fun to wear. It's loose but sexy with the open sides and back. I wore a bralette under it and it worked great. It was the perfect beach dress and I definitely want to purchase this!

This dress can be dressed up or down. It is SOOO comfortable. It does need a bandeau since the arm holes show the sides. I received many compliments and wish I owned this dress!

Casual, gorgeous dress!
I loved this dress and didn't want to return it!!!! It was so flowy and soft. My only complaint was that the arm holes were enormous- I decided to embrace it and go with a crazy bright, lacy bra and it worked out well. The medium and large both fit similarly but I went with the large because of the length.

So much style potential with this look!
Flowy dress with large arm holes- absolutely loved this look! I even ended up buying the dress and I come up with any excuse to wear it. It is pretty long in the back if you're short like me and can look unflattering in pictures if your not careful but I'm still obsessed with this dress!

Pretty dress, big arm holes
I got this dress for a picnic and ended up having to send it back because the fit was very weird. The arm holes were huge and I am busty so it showed a lot of side boob. I was so sad because it is a beautiful dress, light and flowy and great for an informal party. I would definitely recommend to someone who is not as busty and a to have a cami/bra top on hand!

Runs very large
I rented this for an outdoor wedding. I usually wear a Large, so I was very surprised when the Medium was way too big. The arm holes were too low and there was too much side-boob hanging out for me to wear it to a wedding. Maybe a festival of some sort would have been more appropriate. I love the pattern though.
