High quality dress, great for less dressy event

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This dress is beautifully made, fully lined. Given my height and size, it didn't do me any favors (seemed to add a few pounds around the middle) but it was comfortable to wear and I felt quite appropriately dressed for a banquet where some were dressed up, but many were rather casual. I didn't need to wear spanx; It fit well around the mid section, would work for someone up to a C cup, but larger bust might have problems. Hit me just at the top of the knee. As it it polished cotton, it's less dressy than a lace or shiny gown might be, but still nicely styled. I loved wearing it with a faceted bracelet - with this print a necklace would be too much.

Fit is true to size, nice fabric with sheen, not too heavy -- wore it in Texas!--and it dresses up or down with accessories.

Gorgeous fabric, old-fashioned cut.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

The fabric is stunning. The top is very high-cut and boxy, best for small busts and very toned arms. The skirt flares out more than you can tell from the picture, so it's a very retro silhouette. It's quite short, too. Didn't work for me, but it's a beautiful dress.

Pretty and a little different!

Lovely dress with very pretty and unusual print. The bodice was a little large (I'm petite) and the skirt a little full/poofy for my taste, but overall it was lovely and comfortable for a nice dinner out.

Pretty, classic dress

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size

I received this dress when my original dress couldn't be shipped to me. While I knew it wouldn't work for my event, I wanted to try it on anyways. I was pleasantly surprised. The cut is very conservative with the higher neckline and knee length fit, which would be great for a conservative work or family event. It fit very well and was very flattering (even for a large chest!). The colors and design are pretty, but demure. I love that it had pockets! I wouldn't call this dress a stand out, but it's pretty and flattering and I would consider renting it for an event where you don't need a knockout/center of attention dress.

The dress was beautiful- very comfortable!

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was really gorgeous- looked great with both black and nude colored heels- I chose the nude heels b/c it was an outdoor wedding. It fit beautifully- my only complaint was the skirt was very poofy. I felt it made me look a bit bottom heavy. Overall, a lovely dress and it suited the occasion perfectly.
