great dress, was a fun color for a cocktail party, loved the lace
Dress it a great color, but didn't fit the best for those with a long torso. it flared out above my hips and made me look large. Would be a very pretty dress if I didn't have a long torso. As others recommended, wet up a size.

This dress with stylish, classy and beautiful!
I wear this dress to a wedding rehearsal in November, it was very comfortable and warm. I received a lot of compliments. I loved the vibrant color and the feel of the dress. It had my midsection well which is my main problem area I am a 36 D cup usually wear a size 6 but chose a size 8 as a backup. I did not have to use it at all. I would definitely recommend this dress to others.

This dress fits true to size but the arms run very small. I have pretty slim arms and they were tight on me. Beautiful dress! I received many compliments!

Loved the pockets!!!
I chose to size up and wear the 8 to have the sleeves and chest fit more comfortably. I was able to wear a normal bra which is a plus. With a larger chest, 34DD, I'm typically hyper aware of the necklines I wear and hope they are not too revealing. This dress covers up but made me feel covered up but fun and beautiful at the same time. The color and length made me feel confident all night. I received many compliments that night and from the photos posted later. Definitely rent this! I rented a necklace but it hung too low that I just went without and it worked great.

Elegant in lace!
I rented this and another dress for a ballroom dance weekend at a nice resort/hotel. I wore this one on the "more formal" of the two evenings as the lace lent a nice elegance to the dress. Although it was a shorter dress, it worked for the formal night and allowed me to dance without stepping all over a long gown. My only complaint was that the torso, which was quite fitted, creeped up repeatedly as I danced, being that my arms were raised to shoulder height. Assuming most people wouldn't be in a dance frame all night, this wouldn't be an issue!! I have a larger chest/ribcage, and the 10 fit very well, not too snug at all. In the 8, the sleeves were too tight for my arms as it is lace (not really any give) and they come to the elbow. The dress was otherwise quite comfortable and breathed quite well for being fully lined. And the pockets are ALWAYS a bonus for me in a dress.

Non-stop compliments all night long!! Total confidence booster
Ordered this for a small wedding in the mountains. The top is a little snug if you have a larger chest definitely go up a size. But once on so comfortable and flattering. People stopped me all night long complimenting me on the color and style. I felt great!

Beautiful color
This was my first rental and I was very nervous about the size. After reading a lot of the reviews I rented the 6 & 8. I ended up wearing the 6, overall it felt great. Wasn't too tight or too loose. I wouldn't say it was the most flattering fit, but I felt very comfortable. The sleeves were tight, and loosened up throughout the night. Loved the pockets! I received many compliments.

This dress is fabulous!
I read the reviews before I committed to the dress and read about the arm portion of the dress being tight. Although the arms are a bit snug, I was able to move them around like normal and I definitely don't have the skinniest arms! I couldn't get a back up size because it was not available, so I banked on my regular size of 8 and it fir perfect! The dress is super comfortable and has pockets in case you don't want to lug around a phone or other miscellaneous items. The color is very complimentary and got so many compliments throughout the night.

Beautiful color dress.
This dress was beautiful. Very well made. Fit my body great! However, the sleeves were quite snug, so that brought my rating down. I don't recall reading other reviews about tight sleeves, so this was disappointing. I wore the smaller size (2) because it fit my body much better. The size 4 was too big on my body but the sleeves were just as tight. I have small arms, so anyone with a bit more muscle would have been quite uncomfortable and maybe not been able to wear the dress.

Great for a Fall outdoor wedding!
I usually wear a size 2 or 4 dress, and the 4 fit perfectly. Since I am 4'11", the length was long, but it was perfect for a wedding. It was super comfortable. The sleeves were snug, but not uncomfortable. I received many compliments on the dress!

Comfortable and stylish (non-maternity) dress while pregnant!
I normally don't wear a size 12, but I wanted to ensure that the dress would fit since I am 4 months pregnant. I usually wear a size 8, but all of my clothes are starting to fit differently now! The size 12 fit really well, and I was very comfortable in it all night. The dress even hid the baby bump, which didn't matter for me, since everyone at the wedding knew I am expecting, but if you are looking for a dress that won't make it super obvious that you are pregnant, and want to be comfortable and stylish, I recommend this one! The color in person is more of a blue/teal, and not as green as the picture on the site shows. I loved the actual color more than the picture on the site!

Wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner and it was a big hit! Beautiful in person and amazing fabric.
This dress is easy to wear and a beautiful shape! Perfect length/age appropriate for late 20's early 30's girls! Only negative is I was unable to wear a bracelet or necklace as it snags the lace overlay.

I loved how warm this dress was for an evening wedding in California. Perfect color too!
I am approx. 107# and 5'2 and size 0 was too fitting, but 2 was comfortable for eating, dancing all night. I worried it would hang too low, and it was perfect. I wore with black shoes without necklace or belt and it was perfect. Loved it did not need special bra. The pockets were an extra detail I loved because I could hold my phone inside. Would recommend for anyone attending a fall wedding or evening wedding near the coast, like me.

Love the lace
I rented the Alice dress earlier in the year. Therefore, when I had an upcoming wedding invitation and the dress I wanted to rent was not available this was an obvious choice. the Dress fits very well over my large bust and is flatter at the hips. Love the pockets too! Will continue to rent this dress in every style and color available.

flattering and pretty!
dress is heavy material. Which was fine for me since it wasn't too hot, but I would not recommend this dress for an outdoor event on a warm day! The zipper was hard to zip up past the seem, but we got it. I loved the way it smoothes over the tummy and is very flattering. And it has pockets!

LOVE
LOVE. Ended up wearing 1 size up bc of sleeves (I have big arms / guns); typically 12, wore the 14. Felt pretty and feminine, and wasn't constantly tugging to make sure my boobs or butt were hanging out. The best part: no special underwear required! I don't typically don't leave reviews for stuff but I know how helpful peer dress reviews are on this site.

Beautiful, Classy Dress!
This was a beautiful dress, the teal color is more bright and vibrant than in the picture. The lining is a golden nude color and is very heavy/thick. I wore this for a wedding on a cool/rainy April night in CA, so the weight of the dress was okay. Would not have been comfortable in warm weather. The sleeves were a bit snug, but I felt like that sucked everything in, in a good way. I wore the 8 instead of the 10 as it just looked more fitted, the 10 made me look bigger. I paired it with nude heels and a nude belt at the waist. Very flattering!

Fit was very good, but the pockets looked funny (as if they were jutting out) and is quite noticeable if you look closely. Otherwise, it was a pretty dress and color.

Loved the pockets! Received several compliments on this dress.
As other's mentioned, the shoulders and arms run a little tight. I'm a pretty true-to-size 8 and went with the 10 because of that. Form fitting. Rich, pretty color. LOVED the pockets. The chain on my clutch DID keep snagging the lace, so be careful. The material underneath is more of a gold than a nude. Very pretty dress.

Stunning emerald green
I'd previously rented the blue one for a vacation and loved the dress. This dress is exactly the same just a different color. I loved it and it was perfect for a birthday dinner. It does get a little warmer because of the thick fabric. Will rent again!

Great color, perfect for an evening with a chill in the air.
I wore this to a wedding where the day was 75 and the evening was windy and around 60. Though the dress is lacy, it is still thick, so it was good for shielding from the chilly winds (except that it got colder than that at night and I still needed to get a jacket). I opted for a dress with sleeves because the wedding was in England and the weather said that it would be around 60s in the evening. I didn't want to wear a shawl or jacket either. Dress thickness was perfect. Received a ton of compliments on the color and style of the dress. It could not have worked out more perfectly. The only thing I would change about my outfit is my shoes. I opted for nude shoes, but I would have gone with a different color shoe if I had more time to shop for shoes. I wrote it with a necklace that was recommended to rent and it matched well, though the necklace did snag on the lace a little bit and was a bit of a nuisance. Other than that the outfit was a big hit. I will be renting again for another wedding in September.

Cute but a bit smug through the shoulders
I rented this for a christening in the winter, and the color and style were perfect. I'm a bit tall, and it was cold, so I wore leggings under it, and it worked well with boots. However, the shoulders and arms were a bit tight, and it seemed others had the same issue, because there were tiny tears in the lining.

This is a beautiful dress, but looked better in the picture than on me.
I wore this dress for a date night. I felt like a million bucks in it, and still think it's a gorgeous dress. But, it just didn't fit me very well. I'm 5'2", about 100 lbs and flat chested. This dress has boning/shape to the bust, and it was a little awkward on my small/flat frame. This is not an uncommon problem, though, so I don't blame the dress. The inner shell is soft and comfortable, the outer layer (green) is less smooth. Great length and shape otherwise.

Family wedding
Love this dress! I wore it for an outdoor Florida wedding in the late-winter. It was the perfect weight for the time of year but would not be good for an outdoor event in the heat. It is lined and high-quality but also very heavy because of that. Runs true to size and got many compliments on it. If I could buy this dress, I would!

Stylist Review
This dress is vibrant and comfortable! The lace was elegant and made me feel beautiful. I have a smaller bust and it was a bit big on me, but the waist fit comfortably. I usually don't like dresses with longer sleeves, but I felt like I could breathe in this dress and did not mind! Paired with a belt or cute earrings, this dress is a show stopper!

I actually didn't end up wearing this dress. I got 2 others that were better suited for my weekend.
The skirt is much bouncier/fluffier than I thought it would be. I only tried the dress on and wore it in my house for a few minutes and it was WARM. The wedding I was going to was outdoors and I figured this dress would just be too hot to wear. Definitely more suited for colder months but would definitely rent again, even for a fancy date night!
