Charity luncheon dress

I wore this to a charity luncheon for cancer partners and I had many compliments on it. It was very comfortable and beautiful I felt great in it but it is really long especially on one side even with 5 inch wedges it covered my foot on that side. Glad I rented it though stinking dress.

Too big on top.

I rented as a potential for a luncheon event. Gorgeous fabric and loved the skirt part but it was way too big on the top so not wearable.

Very beautiful spring dress

This dress is a really good piece to start an outfit with. The only downside is there's no slit in the skirt so walking is a bit of a chore.

This was very uncomfortable and heavy fabric - not as light as it looks in photos.

The perfect dress for an afternoon tea.

Wore this dress for a charity afternoon tea party. Received so many compliments. Great choice. Ran a little long on me but with heels I made it work.

Beautiful shower dress

I wore this dress to my Bridal Shower. I wanted something that would be great for the backyard affair but not a plain white dress. this one fit the bill and the pattern/floral detailing was really pretty. I found it fit pretty true to size, but the straps were too long for me and I had to pin them so the top didn't fall down too low. I am only 5"3, so I think if you were a couple inches taller you wouldn't have that problem. Also, because of my height, you couldn't really see the asymmetrical detail and the right side did touch the ground, but not too big of a deal, if there had been petite sizes, it would have been perfect. I loved how it was flowy, yet fitted and showed off just the right amount of cleavage.

I didn't wear it-

The dress is a gorgeous dress!!! The material was fabulous , along with the colors. I didn't get to wear it because it was too long on the size 18 and the 16 was too tight in the hips. I wouldn't advise to wear it if you are a curvy in the hips and back. It's not a comfortable fit. It was dragging on the floor. I wish I could have worn it because its a beautiful dress!!!

Loved this dress! Wore this to an outdoor party and got tons of compliments. It is just very different. The material is heavier than it looks in the photos - but still a light and airy feel. LOVE!

Stunning!

I absolutely love this dress, it was perfect for my Bridal Shower and I got so many compliments! Fits true to size and is fairly comfortable to wear. My only note is the bottom half of the dress is a little restricting (no long strides) but it really wasn't a problem.

too formal for what I intended so ended up returning without wearing

i was expecting a slightly elevated work maxi option but it's hard to dress this gown down. This could be worn to a wedding so I didn't end up wearing and just returned.

Wore to a lunch date, outdoor party and drinks with friends

I received tons of complements, but I'm 5'9" and the dress fit much longer than on model. I had to hold the hem up when walking in flats and that was after I had pinned the straps about 4 inches shorter so that the neckline wasn't too low to wear a bra. Overall I found the dress very comfortable after the temporary alterations to wear all day spent mostly outdoors though I think if I had sized down it would have fit better as it was very loose overall.

Dress is beautiful, but dressier than I thought it would be. Ended up not wearing.

Fit is TTS. Ordered a 4R and a 2R and the two fit better. Didn't wear because it was too formal for my event, but would rent again for another appropriate time.

Feminine, flowy and comfortable. Form fitting but not tight, with just the right amount of ruffle. Side zipper helps you get the dress on.

Print and ruffles make the dress

This was a fitted dress, but forgiving enough with the ruffles and print to make me not be self conscious about how I looked. The detail and asymmetry with the sleeves was everything. I am a B cup and the top was a little loose on me. Smaller on top ladies may have issues with this. I am usually a 14 or 16 and the 16R fit like a glove.

Beautiful fit, got a 4R fit perfectly on my frame. Had to hold the side up as the wedding was in a field but otherwise a beautiful dress. Lots of compliments and easy to dance and move in.

Very pretty fabric, swapping for a bigger size

Sending this one back for a bigger size... It's really pretty and great for Summer, but it was a tight cut for me especially in the bust area, so I'm sizing up.

Loved this, but it ran small on me, so I didn't wear it

looked cuter that I expected it - I was on the fence for this one for the past few shipments, and was bummed it didn't fit

Low cut top

I did not wear the dress as the top sagged too low on me. It is an outdoor wedding and it also felt too long - to the floor on my 5'9" frame.

Romantic and whimsical!

The fabric does have little give, but the 6 fit perfectly. I felt comfortable all night and received several compliments from both guests and venue staff at a formal, lakeside rehearsal dinner. A little long for my height, but I made it work with a high wedge.

Beautiful dress runs small in the chest and stomach area. I did not get to wear the dress due to the inability to zip it but would definitely rent again in a larger size the next time.

Classy summer dress

The dress was a bit big, but they didn't have a size 4. I ended up pinning it a few places to fit. Felt like the front was a little low cut. In general pretty flowy and flattering.

Feminine, flattering, and comfy!!!

LOVED THIS DRESS!!! I'm usually a 12 but went up to the 14 (the 12 was snug at the chest, 38DD.) The straps were aaaalmost too long, but I think the larger bust took up the excess, didn't need to pin, one shoulder slid off only when sitting. The draping is super flattering without looking like you're trying to hide bulges! The bottom was pretty slim, so don't expect to take long strides, but it didn't interfere with anything. The back went down low enough to show off neck and shoulders, but still high enough to wear a strapless body suit. Wore coral strappy wedges from WHBM, got so many complements. Felt gorgeous and relaxed all night!

Gorgeous Print & Fabric - Stunning

Even though this dress was too long for me, I just had to wear it because I was struck by the beauty of the print the moment I unzipped the garment bag. The print looks like a watercolor, & the fabric moves beautifully as you walk. I wore my highest heels, and taking a tip from another customer, I rolled the fabric at the waist to keep it from dragging on the ground. Strangely enough, it was slightly large on me as well. If I rent this again, I think the 2 would work better for me. If it fits better, I might not need to roll the waist to keep it from dragging.

Not true to size

I rented this dress hoping to be able to wear it for my work's senior prom event. The 16 was too tight and the 18 was wayyy to big. I couldn't believe the huge size difference between the two. I was super sad I couldn't wear either and had to return them :(

Stand out dress at a summer wedding.

What a beautiful dress in a fabric that flowed elegantly with a to-die-for print. Fitted without being tight and "over-fabricked". Loved the asymmetrical hem and sleeves. Received compliments all night!
