Eyecatching patterns

I know I styled it quite differently. I wore a white collared button down shirt under this dress to make it wearable for work. The dress does size a little small on top with very little give which makes you unable to wear a bra with it. It is either visible (without the shirt) or unable to zip if you dont size up. That said, i really like the look I conjured up to make it versatile for different occasions and personally think that wearing it like a coveral dress made it kind of cute. The material is thick and perfect for winter. The pattern is eye catching and the shape is figure flattering.

So many compliments!! Perfrct little day to night number.

Fit perfect. With a little black cropped jacket this transitioned from work to cocktails perfectly. Well made. Heavier fabric for fall/winter. I dont normally dress this 'cute' but I cant argue with the amount of compliments this dress got. A definite must.

Kentucky Derby

Fit was comfortable but top was big. I am a 36B and sides poked out. Zipper was tough but secure. Dress was thick and well made and very comfortable. Length was to the knee and good for day to night!

Very cute dress and comfortable

I wore this dress to a day time charity event and loved it. It can be worn day or night. It's a thick material but it's not warm in the dress. The only thing I didn't like was it flared up around the armpit/top of breast. Maybe someone bigger busted wore it before? I wore a bando with it under so it worked ok but still looked a little odd with it sticking out. Other then that I liked it a lot.

Thick fabric!

I didn't read enough reviews to realize this fabric is extremely thick. Also the dress fit me weird and bunched under my arms. Ended up wearing my other selection

Cute but runs very small

I ordered a size larger bases on reviews but should've ordered TWO sizes larger. Incredibly difficult to get on. Really cute but material is oddly thick. Something just not right about this dress I sent it right back

Chest gaped

The overall body of the dress was as expected, but the chest area gaped and did not lay nicely on the sides. Sturdy and thick enough that you don't need a bra, but returned right away because the top was so off.

Cute dress, but I didn't wear it.

I was looking for something more formal, but it was too dressy for every day. I didn't love how the top fit (I have a small chest), so it wasn't worth keeping it until I had a reason to wear it. I decided not to wear this dress at all.

Very strange fit

I ordered this as a backup dress for a casual rehearsal dinner and was so glad that the other worked out. The fit was very strange. As others have mentioned, the fabric is very thick and it flared out almost like a crinoline around the hips. It was uncomfortable to sit in, and despite the fact that I'm fairly short, it was too short on me to be appropriate to the occasion. The top of the dress was great, though, and I loved the back straps. A lot of potential, but with some flaws.

Listen to the reviews

So this was my backup dress, but I was kind of hoping to wear this. It fit, and it looked ok, but the top had a weird gaping issue around the bust/underarms and the material was really thick. Like weirdly thick. I ended up wearing a dress that was slightly too formal for the occasion. Definitely listen to the reviews on this one.

Out to dinner with friends

Super cute, can be dressed down or up. I dressed it down with funky casual jewelry , flip flops and a jean jacket. Went to dinner with friends, tons of compliments. I'm never able to not wear a bra, but this dress is tight on top and very fitted under boobs so it holds you up, love it! Will rent again.

I got a lot of compliments on my look!

The dress runs a bit small, so I wore the 12 and it fit perfect with the button down underneath it. I wore it to a women's luncheon.

Stylist Review

This dress's thick fabric makes it clear that it is high quality and well-made. This dress does have some stretch, but it also runs true to size! The 8 was perfect. Do be aware that you can't wear a bra with this one! The little triangle under the crossed fabric does show your skin there!

Thick fabric, not flattering

The fabric on this is so thick that unless you are rail thin, I say skip it. It is not flattering and made me look like I was pregnant. Did not wear.

too big on top

I thought the print ended up looking really busy on me (I'm 5'5" and a size 12). The top was also way too large (I'm a 36C) and the length was a little short, maybe because I have a bigger butt and it just wasn't flattering. The material was really nice though! Very thick and felt supportive. Anyways, decided to not wear it and went with something I already own.

This was a fun but classy option for a nice dinner out during a Bachelorette weekend in Savannah.

The material is nice and thick, and the length was great for me at 5'5". There was a weird gap in dress at the top of the bust area from the crossover that probably could be fixed with fashion tape, but I couldn't be bothered and it worked fine. I wore it with a jean jacket and a low block heel to make it a bit more casual.

I didn't like the crossing design with that pattern once I tried it on. It fit well though.

Comfortable dress for a conference in Florida!

This dress fit me perfectly! The greatest part was not having to wear a bra and the criss-cross panels fell perfectly across my chest without any gaps on the side as other people have noted. I wore it for a medical conference in Florida with a short white jacket and received compliments. It was perfect for the Florida weather. I would consider renting this again.
