So many compliments

This dress fit perfectly for my 5'3 frame. It came right to my knee and the arm length was great. the buttons are very tight on the wrist and I have little wrists (my Apple Watch didn't fit under the sleeve). I couldn't quite figure out the ties around the waste (there are 2 sets). I tied both in front which was a great cinch. Would rent again.

Not the best fit

I felt the fit was a tad boxy and the side tied didn't end up looking flattering on my body type. Lovely material though

Subtle Animal Print

Another winner from LK Bennett. My usual size 6 fit and was easy to dress up or down for work and weekend. Nice subtle way to wear animal print.

Great work dress!

This dress is really pretty! I'm usually a 4 but it wasn't available so rented the size 6. I tightened the waist strings really tight to define my waist and it looked great. Paired it with a burgundy cardigan and neutral pumps for work. Very comfortable and perfect for a fall day.

Gorgeous work dress

It can really be worn for many occasions but I wore it to work and it looked great. It's flowy enough that it covers problem areas well. I got at least 2 compliments on it.

This was a stylish and appropriate dress for an important client meeting abroad. It was beautiful and on trend but conservative enough! Beautiful fit! Just at the knee!

Loved this dress--super cute but still professional, and I get great wearing it.

Note that it is more red than it looks in the photo (I was expecting more brown). It's a good, toned down red. I definitely want to rent this again.

Pretty dress that will take you into fall

This is a pretty dress for the fall or spring transition. The lining was surprisingly thicker than I expected. The dress itself added some bulk, but was comfortable. The sleeve detail is nice. Overall it's a pretty dress that wasn't too memorable. I did find it hard to pick the right color choice in shoes.

Great dress!

I rented this for thanksgiving and loved it! I typically wear an 8 so it was a little big but they only had one size and the waist cinches so I did okay with the 10

Not my typical work sheath dress! Love it!

I typically wear sheath/pencil dresses to work...this was a welcomed change. As with all LK Bennett dresses, this runs small--but you only notice this in the sleeves and at the wrist since it's a flouncy dress. The print is beautiful and pairs nicely with nude pumps for work. I wish I could keep this one.

So much better on than on the hanger!

I rented this dress for work. I love LK Bennett and am squarely a 6 in the brand (sometimes a 4 in others - small waist, bigger hips). When this dress came, though, it did not look good on the hanger. (My husband asked if I was planning to wear the "sunburned cheetah" dress to work). But I tried it on anyways and absolutely LOVED how it looked on me and fit, especially with the ties in the middle. A beautiful dress.

Lots of compliments!

This print is not really my style but the dress is very well made, and the fit of the dress is flattering with ties at the waist to add definition. I received many compliments, so I will probably wear again.

Too Big

I found this dress to run on the bigger size. I rented an 8 and could have easily worn a 6. The strings on the waist of the dress tighten it, but the bust had too much extra fabric and it looked silly on me. The print is beautiful and I wish it had fit!

Easy to wear with tights. Nice detail at the cuffs.

There are ties on either side Of the waste so that you can make it more fitted or not. I am tall and the length was perfect for work… I wore it for a work presentation and felt very comfortable all day.

Great Party or Fun Work Dress

This is a great vibrant dress for multiple seasons. The flowy fit with ties to create a waist make it flattering for most body types. I ended up keeping this dress for 2 months because I liked it so much.

Great for work!

I am a solid 10 but usually wear a 12 for international designers. I rented this in 12 and definitely could have gotten the 10, but the 12 draped nicely for work and the side ties definitely help. If I were renting for an event, I would definitely get my usual 10. If you're in-between sizes, go down. I received a ton of compliments - will rent again!

Did not wear

I love this dress but it was too small in the chest and the arms were really tight at the wrist - had a hard time getting my hands through without unbuttoning. Will definitely try the next size up though.

Comfortable and chic

I wore this to an engagement party with heels and to a work meeting in flats. It is such an adaptable dress and makes you feel instantly put together! I can't begin to count the number of compliments I got. The material is very comfy and high quality and the length is modest. I had to size up, as my true size was a bit snug!

Gorgeous dress that is out of the ordinary and very flattering.

Beautiful print pattern with colors of red, Burgundy, and pale rose/beige. I wore with black shoes. Two separate drawstrings to cinch the waist - one in the front, one in the back. Fabulous dress!!!

Perfect dress for work!

This dress fit me exactly like the model! Sometimes that doesn't happen. There are two sets of ties - one in the front and one in the back. The way it is pictured led me to believe you tied them on the sides which leaves you with a cinched waist and two cute bows on either side. Adorable! Pattern is a mixture of berry reds and pinks - looked perfect with neutral flats for work. Hit me just above knee and I am tall (5'10). Would definitely rent again!

This was a conservative, pretty dress for a cocktail party.

The sleeves are tight at the wrist but this isn't a big deal. The waist can be tightened as much as you like. It ties on both sides.

Flattering and elegant print

I rented this for work. It fit very comfortably and I got a lot of compliments. It's a tad bit long for me but worked well with high heel tall leather boots. I'm in my first trimester and this dress was comfortable and hid my tummy.

One of my favorite dresses ever.

I am large-busted, so it ended up being cinched above my waist, more of an Empire-waisted look, but it still was flattering.
