Perfect for spring

I loved the fabric of this dress -it's somehow both soft & structured. This dress fit perfectly everywhere except for in the bust. I'm a 34C but the top of this dress just had too much fabric providing little support.

Cute dress

This dress is cute. The color is pretty muted and pale, and it washed me out some. May look better on someone with a darker complexion or tan. Top is low cut and doesn't allow for a bra, but you can tie it as tight as you need, so it wasn't an issue for me. Cute dress, I wish it came in a brighter color.

Beautiful fabric and fun design

I loved this dress! Unfortunately it runs small so I recommend ordering a size up. Very good quality material and color was nice

One of my favorites

New favorite rental. Perfect for my hourglass body shape. A button up rental for boobs finally. Would not recommend for small chest, shorter than 5'4" or pear shapes. Will check out other rentals from this designer. Only down is it does wrinkle. Beautiful soft fabric though. Compliments like crazy.

Great simple sundress!

This is a simple silhouette and quality material, which is all I need for a great sundress. I wore this out to an early dinner in West Hollywood on a hot day - 90 degrees in April! - and it was flattering, effortless, and I received a few compliments. Minus one star because it wrinkles easily.

Great Mara Hoffman

I rented this a day time wedding and I loved it. It really stood out from what everyone else had on. I was surprised by the fit though, which is why I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5. I've rented a 6 in a button down Mara before and it was TIGHT on my rib cage so I was (pleasantly) surprised that this one was actually kind of loose. Had I known this one fit different, I would have done a 4 but the 6 still worked. The color and fabric were great-it's actually very light and super soft. Just be careful because it does show sweat!

Soft fabric and flatter cut - I got a lot of compliments!

Could use more coverage on the busy line. I'm a 32/D and it was a snug fit.

Not for the small chested**

I am usually a size 4, smaller on top with hips. I rented the 4 and 6 to try. The 4 was a little tight in the hips, but OK, the top, however, was big. It was awkward and baggy. So, I sent both sizes back without even trying the size 6. This would be super cute on someone with boobs, but definitely not flattering and smaller chests. Bummed since I didn't rent a backup!

Soft material heavier than expected

Fit true to size but the material was a little softer and heavier than expected for what I thought was linen. The 6 hit me around my ankles (I'm 5'1").

Cute but too tight on hips

Nice fabric and color, but I couldn't wear it, as the fit was off. It is not truly A-line, and while there is stretch, the buttons running down the front pull and look terrible if it is at all snug in the hips. This would be cute on straight-shaped ladies.

I met Olivia Culpo in this dress.

Olivia Culpo crowned me in this dress so it will always hold a special place in my heart. For real though, cute dress but not for busty girls. You can't wear a bra with this. Provides little to no support for the ta-tas.

Fun and soft dress!

It was such a cute dress and so soft! Everyone complimented it and to dress it down I wore a jean jacket and sneaks during the day and then threw on heeled sandals at night and no coat! Super trendy!

My favorite!!!

This is the second time I've rented this. I actually got to wear it out twice this time... once to happy hour and then again on a date. The material is soft and luxurious and the dress is classy but still a bit seductive. Your boobs will def be popping out but with the cute tie at the cleavage, it makes it seem cuter rather than sexy. The buttons on the button were only half done when I got the dress so I left it like that and it was a beautiful way to get fresh air and for the dress to not be too hot (because it's totally lined), while also allowing you to show some leg. The blush pink color looks perfect with a summer glow! Would definitely rent again and would love to own!

Wore this to a picnic at the park and it was a fun yet comfortable outfit. Runs large though so I recommend ordering a size down.

Gorgeous Dress, best for the less busty?

I thought this dress was very pretty but it was SO booby!! My husband didn't mind on our vacation date night but I wouldn't have worn it out in public back home. That being said the material and the shape/detail was flattering but I'd sure did wrinkle easily too.

Effortless day wear

Super cute and extremely soft material! Love the cut. It runs a little large to normal, so if you're on the fence with sizes, size down. The color is a bit strange but a great fun and flirty cut!

Awesome!

I loved this dress! It was the perfect rental for a casual occasion where I wanted to stand out. The dress is sexy and snug in the middle section. I am a 34D and I didn't find the top to be too revealing or uncomfortable. My only complaint was that the dress came unbelievably wrinkled. I do not have a steamer and my iron did not work well with the fabric so I painstakingly used wrinkle release to get them all out. This wouldn't stop me from renting the dress again, but be prepared to deal with the wrinkles when it arrives.

The chest part of the dress was a little big but could be tightened if I kept an eye on it. Overall it was adorable and made me feel great.

Loved the idea, but it didn't work on me...

As a petite, pear-shaped person (short torso, small bust/shoulders, and wide hips/junk in the trunk) this simply didn't fit me well enough and I didn't end up wearing it. The straps were too long so the top didn't fit--it gapped, despite the adjustable tie-front--while the waist was rather snug. It's a beautiful dress and looked amazing in many of the photos on here, but I would opt for something else if you have a short torso!

Classy sexy for a Bachelorette Party!

Loved this dress! The length was past my knees, being able to knot the top was good for going braless, someone bustier may have had issues with the amount of cleavage, but I thought this dress was great! Definitely fitted to the hips so beware if it's for a dinner or something, there isn't a lot of give in the midsection. All in all one of my favorite dresses I've rented, wish I could have kept it forever!

The color, fabric, and fit of this dress is stunning! The tie top makes it easy to adjust to size at the top. My only complaint is that it wrinkled very easily!

Well made, great color!

I loved this dress! I sized up specifically for the bust area and I'm glad I did. While it is adjustable, the fabric does not have any stretch or give so you don't want to tie it too tight and risk being uncomfortable. Overall I have no other complaints except maybe the fact that is wrinkles easily. I did a lot of sitting up and down so it became pretty wrinkled

Sweet!

Definitely a comfortable dress! Super soft, did wrinkle easy. I have a small bust and it was super loose on the shoulders and chest. I had to tie it extra tight, but definitely needed to go down a size.

Dreamy dress! Non-stop compliments! Delivered in 4 days!

Dress was so adorable! I got so many compliments!! I wore it on a casual Sunday with sneakers, but could have easily dressed it up with cute wedges or heels! I'm 5'10", 150lbs and ordered the 6. I could've sized down to a 4 and would have fit comfortably. The fabric was sooo soft. Couldn't be happier!

So cute!

Love this dress and got so many compliments when I wore it to an outdoor wine event. I'm fairly busty and it was definitely being shown off in this dress so if you are more conservative it may not be a good option

Nine months pregnant & feeling fabulous!

I ordered this charming little dress a few sizes up (4R instead of my regular 0) in the hope that it would accommodate my bump. And I loved it! Anything smaller would have been too tight. And I'm small-busted, so anything larger may have been too big on top. But the cute tie let me adjust to fit my bust perfectly! Great quality. Great-feeling fabric. And great compliments all day. Definitely recommend - even for expectant mommas!

Fun and comfy day time dress

I adore this dress! It is very busty if you have a chest which made me slightly self conscious but I felt great in it. The length makes it very comfortable and not too much skin considering the top is revealing. I enjoyed wearing this for a day around the beach town.

Gorgeous dress, tight in ribs

Rented this for vacation. Gorgeous fabric and drape. Loved the keyhole. The ribs fit just right in a 6 but was oversized for my (admittedly) flat chest. 4 would've been too tight for ribs but would've been a better fit in the chest. It does wrinkle as other reviewers say so I'd say wear for a casual night out or brunch where it doesn't matter as much and you won't be taking tons of pix.

Beautiful & nice material

Great length for my 5'3" frame. Came just above my ankles. Wore to lunch, a graduation, and a music festival all in the same day. I got so many compliments and the dress is sooo soft. wanted to purchase but alas sent it back for others to have a go at it. I didn't wear a bra and just tied the top very securely. I'm a 34C and yes, it was showy- but the length and style of the dress make it not too risqué. Maybe my favorite rental so far and I've been doing this for over a year :)

Obsessed

This dress was so comfortable and so cute. I didn't want to send it back. True to size, easy to move in, and the fabric is amazingly soft. Does wrinkle so bring an iron or steamer if traveling. The top actually ties, so for girls with a smaller chest it's great. Overall, loved this dress and may have to buy it/rent again

Straps were way too long

The fabric and color were beautiful but unfortunately the straps are not adjustable and were too long. The bust area is quite low and with the long straps it made this dress unwearable.

Sexy, cute and comfy!

The fabric was soft but doesn't have a lot of give so may want to size up if you have hips! The top is a little more revealing if you have larger breasts but everything felt secure and in place! It a little touch of sexiness in an otherwise conservative dress. Wore it on vacation with sneakers and was really comfortable!

Straps too long

I was really excited to wear this dress on vacation but unfortunately the straps are quite long. I'm only 5'2" and the strap length meant showing WAY more cleavage than I thought. Obviously this dress will always show some but I couldn't make it work on me. The fabric was lovely and soft and so I was a bit bummed. Not for shorties!
