Very pretty

This dress is great! But too snug for me. It's a thicker material and the sleeves are great! Could get away with the white color w/ black shoes or boots.

High Fashion and Elegant

I simply loved this dress. The sleeves are just incredible. I was worried they would be too much, but add such style to an otherwise classic dress. I don't have a large bust, but I would find it difficult for someone with one to wear -- I almost wished I could have worn with a sports bra since the dress falls a little awkwardly when pulled in chest area. I find it pretty restrictive in trying to move my arms up or forward (dress can hike up as a result). The material is thick and high quality - Jackie O would have something similar in her closet!

Runs so small

I did not end up wearing this, which is so disappointing. I ordered an 8 based on other reviews and it was still so tight on the skirt. I am usually a 4. That arms are also not very functional. I get that it's more of a fashion statement though.

Beautiful dress - but not the most practical

I was so excited to rent this dress and am so bummed it didn't work out for me. Very pretty and good quality fabric. But, the sleeves are heavy and a nuisance when moving. Shoulder area was very tight (I have extremely narrow shoulders so I rarely have problems with this - especially since the dress fit just fine). Overall it was difficult to move comfortably in the dress. Would recommend for short wear time / non-workplace wear.

Perfect Design Details!

The sleeves and the thickness of the fabric really make this dress. I received a ton of compliments--and it was my backup! I would definitely rent again.

Pay close attention to the sizing.

I wasn't able to wear this because it was too small as I did not pay attention and didn't realize it was European sized. It was also a little shorter than I anticipated. The sleeves have great detail, but I could tell from the fabric that it will be difficult to raise your arms.

Had to repurpose due to micro- short length.

I love the feel of the dress and the fantastic detail of the externally box-pleated sleeves. It was very on-trend in every respect. It simply forgot that it needed to be actually long enough to cover my (flat, not full) butt. I tried it with tights and leggings. (I'm only 5'8"!) But it simply requires that it be worn like a shirt. It's too bad. I really love the idea right until you get to the hem.

The Sleeves!

If you need a white dress that sticks out amongst a sea of white... this dress wins. I wore this dress for an event where everyone wore whites d was excited to have been the only one wearing it. It is shorter than I usually wear, but sizing up didn't work because the fabric would bubble in certain spots. Slip underneath is not attached near seam, so it does rise up and bunch. I received tons of compliments!

Bell sleeved beauty.

I loved this but actually had to size up two sizes to a 12. It's slim fitting. Love the black collar line detailing and the bell sleeves.

Didn't wear, too small

I didn't wear this dress, it was too tight and short. Nice material and well made, but I recommend sizing up at least two sizes.

Works for corporate and church

I rented this for work, but also held onto it for a special mass I attended. It's comfortable, easy to wear and works just as well with black tights and pumps, as it does nude hosiery and nude pumps. Overall, I really comfortable piece that's easy and versatile. I'd recommend pairing it with a shall, or placing your jacket on your shoulders to allow the sleeve details to stay both visible and wrinkle free...

This dress runs very small.

This dress definitely runs small. I used other reviews to determine my size and ordered one size up but should have ordered two sizes up. I have a wide rib cage and hips and while the dress zipped, it was a horrible fit.

European sizing - order carefully

The Euro sizing is a bit different than the US standards, so while I'm a US 2, i was a 6 in this dress and it was kind of small in the shoulders for me. It's also shorter than it appears in the example photo. Fabric quality is nice and you can tell it's well-made.

Impossibly small

I rented this dress in an 8 and a 10 US sizes. I'm typically a 6-8 size. I couldn't breathe in the 10. It was massively short and so tight fitting that I couldn't wait to take it off. I wish this had fit it's a lovely dress.

Statement Maker

I read the other reviews suggesting sizing up, and I'm glad I did. I usually wear a 4, and this is a 10. It was a perfect fit. I wish it hadn't wrinkled so easily, but other than that I really liked it.

STYLIST REVIEW!

This style is such an elegant and classic look! The sleeve detail is structured so well and would look great on anyone! This style has no stretch and will but tight in some areas and loose in others. I have an hourglass shape it was fitted in the bust and hip area but loose in the tummy so sizing up in your back up style will be needed. Otherwise, everything else about this look was great. The length was perfect as well as I am 5'8" and it stopped a little above mid-thigh.

Long sleeves for when you want to be a bit warmer in a restaurant and gorgeous unique details.

Not fitted in the waist if you want to show it off and fairly narrow in the hips. Also too short for a professional dinner.

Great choice for civil wedding ceremony

This dress fits true to size, an easy fit, and it's a great choice for any formal/semi-formal occasion. The sleeve detail is beautiful - I received tons of compliments. I highly recommend this dress.

Back up dress for bridal shower - didn’t make the cut - but I wish I had a place to wear it

Rented this as my backup dress for my bridal shower. I went with my original choice, but this was a great dress. I loved the sleeve details, and wish I had a place to wear this one to as well. Might have to find an occasion to rent this for again.
