Great Casual dress!

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress is really casual but I was pleased with it. It runs a bit big so you could probably go a size down, particularly if you are shorter.

I rented this for a back to school weekend party and absolutely adored it! The print was so fun and colorful. Everyone kept coming up to me to tell me that they loved the dress. I cannot wait to rent this one again.

I'm 5'3 and this barely covered me - entirely too short to wear even to a casual function.

Wore the other dress that I rented

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Large

I thought this dress looked sort of poor quality when I got it. Note it has a definite sparkle/gold thread that isn't as obvious on the photo. Fit pretty big and wasn't very flattering so I didn't end up wearing it.

Has gold thread running through dress, which makes it a little more formal than I was looking for at my daytime event.

Cute but fashion tape needed

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I wore this Parker dress for a dual event weekend in NYC and DC. On both occasions, I needed a great deal of fashion tape to keep the straps in place. I ordered the small and extra small expecting to fit in the 0 sized dress but found that while it was the perfect length it was droopy in the front. The XS worked but was a tad on the short side, but it worked great with flat sandals rather than heels.

Very cute!

Size worn: S

I rented this to wear to a night-time social, but when it arrived it felt much more day-time, so I wore it to a brunch instead. I took the advice of other reviewers and got a size smaller than I would have thought. I am 5'6", 135 lb, 34b. It fit very comfortably with the exception that, as many other reviewers have noticed, the straps are too long and the top continually drifts south. I had a relatively low-cut strapless bra on, but it still showed. I did get a lot of compliments. :-) I wore the dress with black wedge sandals, a skinny black belt, and an handful of gold bangle bracelets.

Love the dress....but...

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I really loved this dress. But, I had to "jimmy" the straps in the back in order to wear it. The straps make the front drop WAY too low. It's also really short---be careful when you sit down and get up. I'm short and thought it would be a little longer than it was. I really like this dress, even with the straps issue. I think it's a great, pretty, casual dress.

effortlessly fun and sexy

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
wore this one to a fundraiser/ early evening event. paired with dangly earrings and nude 2 1/2 inch open-toed shoes. voting for "runs large" because the top portion has very long straps and was too loose on the Small. the XS was a perfect fit; the skirt is a little short but still very comfortable just had to be careful sitting and getting out of cars. didn't need to wear a bra. looks great; innocent but sexy without looking like trying too hard. perfect for a night of looking charming and feminine without being over-dressed. my date loved it.

This was a great party dress. I wore it out to a club in Vegas and it fit right in! I am fair like the model and the color looked great with my skin tone. The top around the bust is very loose. I wore a padded strapless bra which helped keep the top in place.

I typically wear a small, but the extra small fit perfectly. It runs large, so I recommend getting the size below your normal size. Very flirty and adorable. I wore it for a post-wedding brunch. It was perfect!

Really fun dress. Wore it at marti gras! I think it runs big so I wore the XS and had to clip the straps so the top wasnt swimming on me.

Cute! Definitely on the shorter side for my legs (I have a 33" inseam), but wearable. I actually wore it like a tunic over capri leggings for a sportier look.

Really cute dress! The colors are even better in person. You can't see in the photo, but there are strands of gold thread in it which dresses it up. The size small worked for me, but it was just a little too short on me for a daytime wedding shower, so I wore it as a tunic with white pants.

The dress fit well in terms of sizing, but was very unflattering on my body. The top was huge and way too low -- I'd show off everything. And the skirt was much too short, and the fabric too thin to wear on a cool June evening.

Overall fit: Large
This dress was WAY too big on me. I ordered the XS and it was just massive... it hung so low in the front that you could completely see my bra from both the front and side views. If I moved around at all my entire boob would swing out. I tried to pin it to make it work but it still hung too low and looked odd. The length was great for someone on the shorter side like myself, but that was about it. This is a super cute dress, just NOT for someone that is petite and small chested (I'm a size 0 and a 32B). The other thing worth mentioning is that it is fancier in person than in the photos... it has this bright gold thread throughout it, which makes it look a little more fun and fancier. Again, great dress, but if you are a size 0 or 2 it's probably not going to work for you.

LOVE this dress! Very easy to dress up or down and photographs great. Very flattering on as well. I rented it and three friends borrowed it for the rest of the rental days- all of us have different body types.
