Tight across chest

Dress could have been really cute, but was very tight across the chest to the point that I couldn't wear it. This isn't a problem I generally come across. The skirt is also very full- there is no zipper, just a pull over your head style. The tie does help give some waist definition. Didn't end up wearing because of chest tightness.

Weird proportions

Super cute dress - very light and airy, beautiful lace. Fit, however, is strange. Top and chest are super tight (I'm a 34B/C, and a 2/4), but dress has no structure and has a lot of material. Definitely would be best on someone with a narrow shoulder/chest area. I'm sad - I rented to wear on vacation and had to throw a leather jacket over it to hide my squashed boobs!

I wanted to keep this!

This dress was perfect in every way, already planning my next rental with it. I wore this for a barn wedding in South Texas with boots and it could not have been more perfect. I received so many compliments on the pattern and can't wait to rent or buy again!

Beautiful dress!

Fits tight around the chest and under the arms, went up a size. Possibly could have gone up 2 sizes.

Beautiful but way too small on top

This dress was stunning but as soon as I put it on I understood why every review said to size up. I'm normally a 2 and even a 4 was too small. Sadly had to return.

Perfect spring and summer dress

Fabric is thicker so it works well for cooler spring days with a Jean jacket. I'm 5'4" and it hit right at the ankle so felt too long to wear with sneakers. Sandals better. Make sure to wear the belt- it's a little shapeless without it

Good vacation dress

I'm 5'8 and between a 16 and 18 with a large bust and smaller waist. This hit me almost at the ankle. It's beautiful and the material is heavy. It got tons of compliments. You do see a lot of skin - back/cleavage. The back is low enough to cause bra issues that I don't think would have been solved by a strapless. I recommend sizing down if you're between. A 16 might have improved my bra trouble. If the straps were adjustable it would have been a better fit. I'm considering renting again but would definitely size down next time.

Could not wear!

Such a weird, weird fit! It was unwearable. Smashed down my boobs so, so tightly and was like a giant, unflattering tent. Every bit of the dress looked hideous on every inch of my body. I could even cover the top to wear as a skirt to get the cute pattern because the top was so uncomfortable. Such a wasted rental.

Runs small in the chest but large below

The dress is heavier than I envisioned. It was tight in the bust but very baggy on bottom. There was no tie for the waist as described which would have helped. Love this brand but this was a miss for me.

Stunning and will rent a smaller one!!

I am in love with this dress it is beautiful for everyday and perfect for a summer event. Runs big, and the straps are sewn to the lining so the heavy dress pulls the lining out in the back. I will be trying a smaller size to see if this is still an issue.

BEAUTIFUL DETAILS

Can't get over the details of this dress! Just stunning. I got a few compliments in this dress, which is always a plus! My only complaint (and it's not a big deal while wearing a dress this beautiful) is that the dress is a bit heavy.

Stunning maxi - perfect for your next trip

I adored renting this dress during my maternity...I was 8-9 months too! Wore it multiple times, even though the top was a bit small on me. Size up in this one and bring on your next Nantucket vacation. So dreamy (and got tons of compliments on it!)

Gorgeous and comfortable

This dress is gorgeous and very comfortable- has pockets! I am 5'-3" and it was fine with flat sandals. It runs a little big but looks good baggy. It was really fun to wear bar hopping on an afternoon vacation.

Terrible fit

Not for anyone with any sort of boobs. Very shapeless and drapey body, which I liked, but it doesn't go with how tight the chest area is / the tiny triangles meant to cover boobs...

Fresh, Braless, and Free

Wow, I am so glad I rented this. I [almost] never go braless or show my arms because insecurities lol but I felt so comfortable and confident in this dress. It looked beautiful, effortless, and the detailing/stitching is sick!!! There was no belt with it but I didn't mind because imo the shape without any waist cinching makes it more high fashion. I will rent this one again

Not super airy as you'd hope!

Loved the way it looked but fabric was so hot. Not an easy, breezy maxi. Granted it was a hot hot day but I was dying in this.

I did not wear dress.

I could get the top over my chest but it was very tight. I sized down one size after I read customer reviews. Bottom half fit. I think one size up would fit in the top but the bottom half would be huge. The dress has a lot of heavy fabric on bottom.

Extremely comfortable dress that is great for a casual BBQ or to dress up for a night out. The fabric is gorgeous and very sturdy with beautiful appliqué. Rented it for a trip to the South, would definitely rent for summer seasons again.

Lots of room, pretty print!

Loved this dress! Plenty of room, I'd say it runs on the large size I could have used a L or 12, instead of XL 14, but still worked great! Great amount of length too. Love the pretty blue and white floral print/stripe and love the deep ruffle at the bottom hem. Great dress for spring/summer or vacation rental! I'd def rent again. Even thought about buying!

Extremely small in chest area.

It was so tight around the chest and then full in the skirt. It looked awful and was unbearable. Loved the fabric, just the sizing on top was off.

Tight on top, big on the bottom

This is a gorgeous, high-quality dress. If you're a pear, it would probably be perfect. I'm an hourglass, and although I ordered a size up, the top was too tight to wear.

Too tight in the chest!

Similar to other reviewers, I found the chest to be wayyyyyy too tight. I could not wear the dress. I'm a small 32B/34A and could not fit the size 0/XS over my chest, which has never happened to me with a dress!

Read other reviews. They are correct. Material heavy, the top too low cut, the bottom tent like, the straps too long.

Wayyyy too small in the bust

Dress is beautiful but it is not for anyone larger than a B cup. I wore once but the chest was super snug which is weird because the rest of the dress is so roomy. Rented as maternity option at 6 months and had ample room for belly but squished chest. Looked odd without a cardigan. From the reviews, it looks like sizing up may not help. Larger size would probably still be snug up top and even roomier below. Would look good on tall and slender with smaller bust.

Comfy girly dress.

I really liked this dress but my husband said I looked like a curtain in it. I can see where he's coming from. This is def a dress that girls can appreciate but guys don't get, in my opinion. Still, I liked it. Tight in the chest.

Small in the chest

Reading reviews that this ran large, I thought I'd be ok with a size down. Although it's a trapeze style, the chest is small! I couldn't even get it over my girls .

Chest Too Tight

It's a beautiful dress and I wish it would've fit properly. However if you are big chested this dress is not for you. It's very tight/slender on the top. I recommend going a size up if you've got big boobs.

Cute but the top is SO TINY

Beautiful dress but couldn't wear because the top was so tight. I'm typically a 6 and ordered the 6 but my boobs wouldn't fit in this at all - I'm a 34D. If you're large chested, definitely size up - but the dress is very flowy so sizing up could make it massive. It also didn't come with the belt.

Cute for a cool spring/summer day

The straps were about 2 inches to long but once I pines those to fit the dress was perfect! It's think material so it's not really Foley or cool but for a "summer" day in San Francisco it was great!
