I rented this dress for a summer wedding. The color was gorgeous and it was very comfortable. It seemed a little bit, but because other girls said that the sleeves were tight, I might not have fit into a smaller size.

I wish I owned this dress!! I had read reviews that the top runs small and it definitely does. I'm usually a solid 4 and I went with a 6 and it fit perfectly. A little big throughout the waist and hips, but I slapped on a thin tan belt to match my shoes and it worked perfectly. I got compliments all night long and even for days after! I will be renting this dress again!!

I rented this dress for a fall indoor/outdoor wedding and it was perfect. I got so many compliments on the color and the fabric underneath is so silky soft and kept me warm outside! The 4 fit perfectly.. The arms were just a little snug, but nothing I couldn't move around in. I would highly recommend this for an event.

I'm usually a 4 in dresses but needed a 6 for the sleeves in this one as they were super snug. The dress is clearly high quality - even the lining was beautiful. The dress looked great with tan peep toe heels and big, blingy rhinestone earrings.

Overall fit runs true to size but the arms are a little snug. Pockets are key to any dress and it was just the right length; not too short but not overly conservative either.

The reviews were all correct. A little tight in the arms, but very flattering everywhere else. I had tons of compliments, even a random guy at the after party complimented me! I originally ordered this dress in the purple color, but the 8 was damaged and they sent me the green. I'm so glad they did! I would definitely rent this again

Not only was this dress beautiful, but it was incredibly comfortable. Lining was silk, pockets a plus and not once did I feel uncomfortable or restricted. The dress was a hit! Only thing I would say was that at first the arms felt a little snug, but loosened as the day went on. I paired it with nude heels and purse. I also tried it with a black belt and heels, might be more suitable for a winter wedding.

Wore this to dinner at Commander's Palace in New Orleans. As soon as we walked in the door i started receiving compliments on it and asked where I had gotten it! Comfortable all over, except tight in the sleeves. You may want to order up in your backup size if you have muscular arms! Overall, would rent again!

I am a true 4 and usually wear a small but i have broad shoulders and this dress has no stretch and is pretty fitted in the shoulders which meant I had to go up a size. If you a broad on top order a size up as you may need it. Other than that it was a pretty and well made dress!

Classy dress, gorgeous color

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size

The color is VERY bright in person-but gorgeous. The fit of the dress was extremely comfy-but like many reviews the arms are definitely made to fit very tight (but it wasn't uncomfortable). Just don't expect to be dancing with your hands up in the air. The material is heavy so definitely perfect for a cold weather event. Overall loved it and served its purpose for a November wedding.

Length was perfect, I am only 5'1" and it fell at my knee. Size 2 fit perfectly. Top was a little snug but wasn't uncomfortable. Overall was very comfortable and I loved having pockets!! The lace details were beautiful and it even looked good with riding boots when I decided I couldn't bear the pain of wearing heels.

Wore this to my 10 year high school reunion, was a great choice!

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Party
I previously rented this same dress in purple and loved it so much that I rented it again for another event in this color. I personally think the dress runs quite small in the arms, but otherwise true to size. I have small arms and it was pretty tight on me so I went with the size 2 instead of the 0. There was no difference in my opinion between the 0 and the 2 in the body of the dress. I think the dress works best for a fall/winter event because the material is a little thick. Would definitely rent this dress again.

The color is stunning in person and lining make it comfortable to wear. I ordered the 4 and 6 and ended up wearing the 4 (5'5 130lbs). Great length, hitting just above the knee. Yes, the sleeves are a little snug but not enough of a reason to slight the overall fit, just know you're not going to be doing jumping jacks in this. Pair with a chunky statement necklace. Fun and festive for a holiday party! Do it!

So many compliments. This color is gorgeous!!

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a brunch the morning after a black tie wedding. I received so many compliments and felt amazing. The fit is snug around the ribs but so flattering in the tummy area. I used fashion tape to stick my bra straps down slightly outward so they didn't show with the boat neck. It worked perfectly. It's long enough that I didn't feel like I was flashing any one and didn't have to worry about my Spanx showing either. Highly recommended. I usually wear an 8 and it was perfect. I am 5'3 150lbs. Perfect perfect perfect. Best part.... Pockets!!

This dress was stunning in person. The pictures do not do the color justice. The sleeves were fitted but the fabric had some give. I'm not wide in the hip area, but this dress seriously added some hip inches. If this is a problem area for you, do NOT get this dress. The fabric is luxurious and everyone gave me compliments on the style. I wore it for a Christmas Eve party. Was knee length and I was able to wear stillettos and still be family friendly. Would definitely rent again!

This dress was so comfortable!! The 10 fit well but the 12 just gave a little extra room in the arms. The pockets are an added bonus. The dress is extremely well made. It is a bit heavier and hangs beautifully. I had tons of compliments. Perfect with pearls and nude heels. I would definitely recommend this dress. The fit is very flattering. For reference I am 5'5", 34D, 150 pounds, hourglass shape. You won't be disappointed with this dress!

I had my eye on this dress for a while, but couldn't justify the $75 rental. (I could buy something comparable for that price.) However, my sister got married in late November and I knew it was the perfect dress for her rehearsal. IT WAS SO PERFECT. I am still in love with this dress. Like the other reviews say, the arms are a bit tight, but other than that it is true to fit. I would rent this again! And if it ever goes on sale, I'm buying it! One thing, the lining underneath is satin so it looks really nice in person!

Runs REALLY small! Especially in arms!

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was beautiful and well made but SO TINY IN THE ARMS!! I normally wear a 4 and if something runs small a 6, but I definitely needed a bigger size. As you can see, I was able to get the dress on and it looked fine to everyone else but I could not lift my arms past my shoulders which made for some pretty awkward dancing at the wedding we attended. It's a great dress but just SIZE UP two sizes bigger than you think you need!

Loved this dress overall! I agree with the other reviewers on the tightness of the sleeves. The material has no stretch, and the sleeves are disproportionately tight compared to the rest of the dress (still wearable for me luckily!) Normally i would be about a 6 in something like this and the 8 was perfect. Best part? Pockets!

Size worn: 8

Wore this for a Burn's Night Gala (Scottish heritage event, hence the plaid thing on my shoulder). Color was more vivid and striking in person. Comfortable, pretty, twirly for Scottish dancing, pockets! Definitely more on the lovely and tasteful side than the sexy and breathtaking side, but for this event that was appropriate. Wouldn't mind having this in my closet! True to size, no issues with arms as mentioned by others.

I loved this dress and I wish I could have kept it. I mean, who doesn't love a good pocket dress? The fit was true to size, comfortable and easy to move in.
