Not a fan for a shorter and curvier figure

I rented this with high hopes of testing out the bare shoulders trend, and I was sadly disappointed. I wore this for a friends' engagement brunch with some wrap-around wedges. The shape of the dress is like a potato sack. Not the best for shorter girls with larger busts, as it does nothing for your figure. I'm barely 5'1" with 32DD bust, so I felt it made me look large. The shoulders/sleeves kept riding up my shoulders, and the sleeves were also billowy, so I really felt like it was only doing damaging things to my figure. Wouldn't rent again. Wouldn't recommend unless you are a taller girl and have a long, lean physique.

I was so excited when I heard they are arrived! It was like Christmas morning!

The dress was like a balloon. I love a loose fitted dress, even a verrrry loose and flowy dress, and I thought with the hint of sexiness with the bare shoulders it would all even out. But I couldn't convince myself to even run errands in it. I would say that I should've ordered the XS but how tight the small was around the shoulders already, I have a feeling the XS would make the band around the shoulders extremely uncomfortable. But I did love the color and style and the casualness of it. The sizing is just too much.

Puffy

I got a brand new dress with the tags still on which was awesome. However, the dress flared too much out in the front and back so I looked like a balloon from the side, even though dresses normal fall flat on me since I have a small chest. Great material, color is exactly how it's pictured.

Very cute and trendy dress

Very short dress, especially if you are tall. Not the most figure flattering dress but overall cute. Slightly see-through.

Comfy but short!

A heavier material than I expected. It's very cute as an after-beach cover up. It's short though, so you either pull it down low on the chest or wear it short. Also, the sleeves are a bit puffy.

The off shoulder always stayed put!

This dress hung on me very weird so I threw on the belt which really made the outfit, I think. I love that the skirt had lining in it to make it poof out a bit and that I didn't have to keep pulling the shoulders down. It had great quality elastic! Very cute detailing and embroidery!

Cute!

I kept thinking this dress would manage to fly up and expose my bum, but it never did. Still, I advise caution. That being said, this dress is adorable and worth it.

Effortless glamour

Stopped by a bunch of people to tell me they loved my "look" which was this and ugg tie wedges. Took 3 seconds to get ready. Could throw in my purse to change into after work. Loved it.

Super fun flowy

Had a great time renting this! It was super fun and flirty! It ran a little large. I probably could've gotten away with the XS but it wasn't available so I went with the S!

Definitely not a dress

This was 100% too short to be a dress. Once I belted it, it felt much more secure and had an actual shape to it. I paired it with white jeans for a brunch on Labor Day and loved it. Very comfortable.

Very cute and whimsical

I rented this dress for my 16th birthday party and it was so pretty!! It shows off shoulders and collar bone nicely and the details on the dress are very nice. XS was very short but I just wore spandex under while the S just swallowed me up. Had a great time in the dress looks very cute in pictures especially

Comfy, cute, short!!

This dress is cute! I wore the medium but I'm sure a small would have fit bc there's TONS of fabric. I just didn't want it to be too short. It's not flattering from the side, but as long as you understand it's flowy and lots of fabric, you should love it.

Boho dress

Cute flowy boho dress, great for the beach, weekends. It does run shortish and has a ton of material so I would size up for length but down for volume of fabric if you're worried it might swallow you up. Off the shoulder sleeves stay in place.

Pretty cute to knock around in over my swim suit

I really like the Boho designs of Free People, most of the time in any event. I can't say I would wear this dress as more than a beach cover up or knocking around my cottage - again as a swim suit cover, but it's perfect for that! Over a bandeau it's strapless and affords me to sit in the sun on my patio and have sometime cute to jump up and answer the door or run around in too. I am 5'9" and just have to make sure I am acutely wearing it off the shoulders as it is designed to do and it is long enough to cover means still be flirty. Because it's roomy & cotton it's not hot and also not overly provocative either. Like I said, a cute little beachy dress, but seriously, unless you weigh 2 pounds and are 16 I don't think this is a dress to wear to an occasion ....it's a cover up or wear it as a large blouse like some of the others did. Personally, that's NOT my look. I really like it for what it is a cute knock around beachside dress! Yay!

I wore this dress for a weekend beach day.

Super comfortable and very forgiving as it offers a loose boho fit. Even the XS was a bit overwhelming for my frame so I'm not sure I'd rent again. Loved the trendy off the shoulders look though. Paired with a lariat necklace, flip flops and beach hat.

Loved it!

I rented this dress for a Bridal Shower. I ordered the small and medium but wore the small. It runs large. The small was roomy enough to hide the swelling in my stomach from a recent surgery. It was comfortable and looked super cute with navy wedges and a long necklace. I'm 5'1 and 130 lbs.

Fun Dress! - Runs Large

This dress is feminine & fun (love off the shoulder look!). It does run a bit large so I recommend sizing down. My only complaint is the quality of the item when I received (was over-worn/washed).

Cute, loose boho look, perfect for summer!

Love this short dress because it's super versatile. I can wear with chunky necklaces and heels for dinner out or completely plain with flats or slip-on sneakers for an outdoor event. Got so many compliments I had to buy it.

This dress is very cute on! Perfect for a casual BBQ rehearsal dinner.

The dress runs on the larger and shorter side. It is not made to make you look thin or small but it is still very cute on! I am 5'1 and wore it with a chunky high heel and was very comfortable the whole night. Would definitely recommend.

I wore it to a daytime wine and food event. I felt frumpy all day.

I'm short so the length was good, the XS fit but was so frumpy on top, I felt very awkward in photos.

Too large

I'm 5'1 and this dress was HUGE on me! The bottom skirt part flaired out as if I was wearing tulle underneath. The fabric wasn't very comfortable either. Wish I got a photo for proof but I couldn't wait to return! LOL. If you're taller this might be a better fit for you.

Like wearing the world's largest pillow case.

I saw plenty of photos of girls who rocked this dress. I, however, looked crazy. Not even a smaller size would have fixed the overall awfulness. The fabric was fine and I think the sleeves were fun. I would probably tell curvy/athletic girls to scroll past this one. It is not our friend.

Cute but WAY too short

So this is such an adorable dress for the right person. Typically I wear a Small in Free People, because their stuff is so baggy, but this was sooooo short and I should have known that from the look of it. Didn't wear it, but if you are under 5'7" I'm sure it would be awesome!

I didn't get to wear it!

Unforeseen circumstances kept me from celebrating my birthday and wearing this dress. I did quickly try it on before sending it back. It's cute - really flowy. I'm 5'9 and really small up top (shoulders, arms, stomach). This is a fun, beachy dress. The off the shoulder part did feel a bit tight, and I could see it starting to dig in if one wore this for a long period of time. Wish I would have been able to wear it.

spring crawfish boil and dinner with friends

fit perfect... it was actually a little cold when I wore the dress so I wore a pair of ripped jeans and wedged boots with the dress. it was short enough that it looked totally normal. I did have to pull down on the dress a couple of times, as the shoulders would gradually come up.

Wore it to a country concert and it was perfect!

I tend to not like too many OTS styles because I feel like they squeeze my arms. But this dress fit perfectly. I love an oversized look. This dress was the perfect amount of oversized and fit perfectly! I am 5'4" 125lbs and wore a small.

Meh...

Pros: cute, versatile, lightweight, off-the-shoulder look is on-trend. Cons: it is SHORT! Kept pulling it down the whole time I was wearing it. Also, the skirt is big- as in, it flares out quite a lot and doesn't drape quite the way it looks on the model. Cute if you are standing and not doing anything, but don't wear it on a windy day! :O

Fun, Comfy and Cute!

This dress was comfortable! Lots of material all around but the off the shoulder gave it style. It did look a bit frumpy from the side but still cute. I wore athletic boy shorts underneath because it was on the short side. Easy dress to just throw on to hang out or run errands. The comfort added to the fun of the days I wore it.

Fun for 4th of July parade!

This outfit is really fun but it is also very short! I wore the XS for a casual 4th of July parade setting. It was perfect with little shorts underneath. Definitely too short for my 5'5" frame to wear without something under the dress. But as it was it was flowy and perfectly festive with little white shorts under it. I really enjoyed wearing and felt festive! Wore the S later that evening with pants underneath. The S fit me much better in the shoulders as the elastic was not as tight and the length was much better. Would not have had to wear the white pants under that night except it was a bit chilly out. Very fun dress!

Cute, comfortable, easy for everyday or vacation

This dress was very cute and comfortable. It fit true to size and has a flattering off the shoulder fit. It was loose enough to move around in and to travel or wear for everyday. My only complaint was that the fabric had more layers/was much thicker than expected and was a bit heavy for the dead of summer.
