Effortless white

I rented it to try on for a future vacation, I sized up because I'm curvy and it fit so perfectly. It's very long, I'm short and had to wear tall platform wedges to make it work, no flat sandals. Added a summery belt to break up the white and will add some fun jewelry. It's so well made.

Light as air linen dress

Loved this! Overall it was light enough for warm Miami spring day, but the skirt had some nice swishy weight to it. I probably could have worn the 14, but I liked how loose the 16 was - great for the heat.

Great Dress!

Loved the fit of this dress and got so many compliments from strangers. I have a wide ribcage and some of the buttons were already a bit stretched. I had to doctor two button holes with safety pins but otherwise great.

Beautiful!

I LOVED this dress! I got so many compliments on the crisp linen fabric and how beautiful the white was! I ordered one size up because it was the only size available and I had to have it. It was a bit big and I should've ordered my regular size. But still fit perfectly in the bust and flattering in the belly.

Pretty white linen dress

So this dress is a bit more textured than I thought it was going to be, not a bad thing just was not expecting that. The fit is perfect, very true to size and comfortable. It hits me right above my ankle. It's a really cute dress for summer. Just note is came pretty wrinkled which makes me think it easily wrinkled (hard to pack for vacations)

Awesome!

Wore this dress for a photo shoot. Perfect spring/summer classic look. I'm normally a 4 but rented the 2 after reading other reviews. Was glad I did. Even with a larger bust it fit great.

Perfect blend of casual and dressy for my cocktail hour...

before a business casual dinner. I dressed it up with heels but can totally be dressed down with sneakers. I will probably where a size down next time but the 12 was nice and roomy. I am curvy with hips on hips. Pretty easy to iron the bottom after being in my suitcase during flight. Bonus! It has pockets!

Loved the way the dress lays.

The fit of dress is very nice. The pockets a nice touch and and I received many compliments. I would buy it but it is too white for my complexion.

So easy to wear and classy!

Wore this during a Spring trip to Milan and it went the distance for 12 hours sightseeing. The swing in the skirt was so pretty, and easy to commute on foot with. Skirt is lined, which is nice, but the bodice of the dress is not so wear a nude bra. It's so pretty on and provides the right coverage when you're visiting churches which require knees and shoulders covered. My only complaint is the waist is not fitted and it doesn't work with a belt. But I'm splitting hairs here...def rent it!

Love

Just fits great, very nice crisp white shirt dress. There's a textured feel to it which helps because linen can get super wrinkly, but this doesn't.

I picked my wedding dress in this dress.

It was absolutely beautiful, comfortable and I'll never forget it because I said yes to the dress in it! And some people thought THIS was my dress which is hilarious.

Beautifully made, easily wrinkled

Rented this for a summer vacation in the south of France and felt like it fit that vibe! You can tell from the fabric that this dress was beautifully made, but it definitely wrinkles easily. Has a liner under the skirt (makes the dress a bit warm) but nothing on top so can be a bit sheer without a cami or something underneath. Might work better for women with smaller busts.

Small but beautiful

Not a true size, much smaller than a normal 20. Wish I could've worn it. The dress is beautiful.

Loved this classic linen shirt dress. Wore it with fun earrings and espadrille heelsb

Easy to wear. Relaxed but well-cut - not slouchy!

In love with this dress

I absolutely love this dress. It's comfortable, high quality and the perfect amount of sheer. The silhouette is amazing for my six week post partum body--it's snug around the top of the waist and has a nice flown A-line that gives me shape in the right places. I wore it for my first date night out after the baby with my husband. Easy to dress up or wear casually.

Very comfortable

I'm short so it is definitely a maxi dress on me. It's very comfortable and soft and the bottoms part of dress is lined.

Quality and material were perfect!

Perfect dress for Spring Engagement photos. The material was flowing and fun to move in and the dress was well made. The waist was a little bigger than I would have liked so I would have sized down had it been available. But it's a great dress.

Favorite every day dress

I love this dress so much. Its extremely flattering and perfect for the summer. Also it has pockets! I fit into the 0 easily and I'm still not at my pre-pregnancy weight so I would imagine that this dress usually runs large.

?

I liked the fabric and could even handle the long length, but the high waist cut close to my chest and was quite unflattering. If you are tall with a small chest, this might work for you.

Classy, comfortable, and it has pockets

Dress was amazing - made me really feel like I was on vacation. I can imagine wearing it for so many occasions too! The top is slightly sheer, while the skirt is double layered and has a weight to it that makes it fun to move/keeps the fabric looking awesome. It's cinched in the waist a bit, making it very flattering proportion-wise.

Fancy MooMoo

Not very form fitting. Kinda drapey and dull AF. I would have maybe paired it with a wide belt for contrast and for shape. Just not what I was hoping for.

Fun spring dress

The dress is made of thick linen, the top part is a tiny bit transparent while the bottom isn't. I'm between size 6 and 8, the 8 is roomy but glad I got it. With all the dry cleaning the fabric is starting to be slightly yellowish and tired, it's subtle but it's not as white as the picture. For my height the length was prefect, and it has pockets, which I like
