Beautiful classy dress

This dress is very beautiful. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because the material was slightly itchy and I found the Ruffles on the side to be a little annoying when sitting for long periods of time because you have to smooth them out or they bunch underneath you. These are only minor problems though. Overall the fit of the dress was very nice. Has a little stretch and I found the little attached black belt was not too restrictive. I wore this to a ballet but this dress would really be perfect for a bride at a bridal shower. This really is a special dress.

Feminine, elegant detail makes this dress a 10!

I got this dress through unlimited, and do not plan on giving it back any time soon :) the material is thick and structured, but still light enough for summer. The detail is so feminine and delicate - perfect for a date or just to feel girly. The size 2 fits well, and I suggest ordering up for a backup size. The top fit me really well, but i could imagine it being a bit tight for a C cup or larger.

A little too dressy for my needs.

This is an issue with me inappropriately choosing this dress rather than the dress itself. More often than not I use the Unlimited service to supplement my work wardrobe. I thought this would be a cute dress to wear to work (we have a slightly relaxed dress code, so sleeveless is acceptable) and would be a departure from the usual black sheaths that I wear. However, after attempting to wear it a couple of different mornings I changed my mind because it was a little too decorative for even my relaxed office. I remember thinking that it looked kind of like a wedding cake. It was a little large and came off as somewhat whimsical. My advice is too choose this dress for an appropriate event/setting. It is very doll-like and the side ruffles add too much material to the dress to carry off in more casual settings.

Wow! This dress sold a friend on a RTR membership. Gorgeous!

Lining and sticking is detailed and luxurious. Understated design but DEFINITELY a show stopper for the trained eye.

Pretty dress

It was pretty- definitely a daytime dress and very conservative. Not appropriate for what I rented it for, but nice all the same! Not a showstopper by any means, but the embroidery was well done.

Pretty Dress

The fabric is a little itchy and it's not obvious from the pictures, but there are small mesh sections you can see through. But otherwise I thought it was a very pretty dress. I wore a blazer with it to make it more work appropriate instead of afternoon tea garden party.

effortless beauty

I LOVED this dress. I wore it for my daughters bridal shower. The dress is very comfortable, a little snug on the bust but overall fit was great!

Beautiful but tight in armpits!

I loved the dress! The fit on the body was great, but it was quite right on the armpits. It made the dress slightly uncomfortable, but I still wore it all day and evening.

Lots of compliments! Very elegant romantic dress!

I wore it to my date. My boyfriend loved this outfit. He said I was like the real princess. The quality is really good. I liked the pattern and the texture of the fabric.

Very, very feminine and pretty.

I am very busty (38 dd/ddd) but small everywhere else, and this one just barely fit

Just darling!!

Absolutely the cutest. Very fitted in the upper bodice and through the waist but with a slight A lined skirt, it is great on the body even with it's ruffled accents. I really enjoyed wearing this dress to work. The compliments never stopped!

Very cute and girly, very VERY short

Too short for me (I'm 5'6") so I couldn't wear it, but it would be adorable on a petite woman!

Lovely fabric and cut.

I rented this for a coffee fundraiser, but it didn't arrive in time. The cut and fabric are very pretty. I wish I could have worn it.

workday + charity meeting

Beautiful dress! A little itchy + snug in the upper torso (arms & neckline), but no big deal.

This designer knows how to design dresses for women!

LOVE this dress and designer. I couldn't decide what to rent for my bachelorette party and the dresses I originally looked at were no longer available. I tried this dress and love it! I received so many compliments. The dress fit my petite hour glass figure perfectly. It was a hit for my low key bachelorette party at some wineries. Perfect for the girly girl who loves dresses that fit perfect. I will rent this agin!

I only rented this dress to see what it would look like on. I looked and felt like a cup cake. It is a quality dress and fits true to size though.

Gorgeous! So many compliments! The perfect springtime dress.

I am busty - 34DD and this dress was a bit tight but not noticeable. The material had very little give. The waist band is tight but not unbearable. The fabric was really nice and the dress looked really special,

Derby Perfect!

Rented this through my unlimited subscription and it was perfect for planning my KY derby outfit. Rule of thumb, big hat conservative dress vs loud dress, conservative hat. Adding the fascinator with this dress and some wedges won me best dressed at my derby party. I would say it's true to size, the little ruffle thing on the top was weird at first, but you get used to it. Very comfortable dress and long enough for us tall girls! Rent it! You'll love it!

Cute, cute, cute

Fit to size, great quality. Wore for springtime, Mothers Day. Iron, steam the side ruffles to lay nicely, and even strategic fabric tape to help lay just right. An adorable dress for many types of occasions.

Not for busty girls

I rented this for church and brunch on Mothers Day. The 44 was snug but the 46 was so big it was frumpy. I am a 34D and felt stuffed in the dress. The fabric is absolutely gorgeous though.
