I am usually about a size 6-ish in dresses. The 6 fit pretty well and I could have squeezed into the 4 if I had to. It was nice, not the most fabulous dress I've worn, but it fit well and was flattering, particularly for people who have hips, due to the full skirt.

Nice dress
I rented this dress for a benefit function I was going to with my coworkers. This dress is exactly as pictured. It fit well, and was interesting enough, but also conservative enough to wear to a professional event. The fabric and construction of the dress is very good and you can tell it is high end. It is also comfortable to eat and move in because of the flared bottom half I recommend it. I usually wear a 6 but I am pregnant (not showing yet) at the moment so needed extra room in the bust.

Lightweight, understated dress
There's not really any give in the fabric, but it's lightweight and really comfortable to wear. I loved how the skirt moved as I walked. I'm a bit shorter, so the straps were a bit long and loose - but a strapless bra helped alleviate that issue.

Meh.
Well cut and excellent material. Just didn't stand out for me once I tried it on.

Lovely and feminine.
The material is a really nice, light weight, but is much thinner than it looks online and there is very little structure to the dress, which runs fairly large if you have a small bust like myself. I am usually a solid 6, but even the 4 was too big for me due to the lack of structure in the dress and longer than expected straps. If you have a small bust, I recommend going one size down.

Beautiful dress!
I wore this to a work event with a charcoal short blazer and it looked great. Received many compliments. Quality material. The details are beautiful.

Great fabric and subtle pattern
My biggest con is that there is no size 2! I'm definitely a 2-4 but the 0 worked best out of 0 and 4 options. What I love about this dress is flattering waist, beautiful lightweight fabric and subtle pattern. I wore to a graduation dinner with colleagues. I didn't want a total LBD for a June event, this was perfect because subdued but interesting and light fabric for summer event. Also length perfect for work event . Figure flattering without looking too sexed up!

Beautiful subtle color detail - great alternative to a LBD.
Fantastic cut and fabric. While it is dark there is a subtle pattern that is hard to see in the model photos. The color actually very pretty and understated. A little different than your standard little black dress!

Light fun dress.
Lovely, flattering dress. Thin material. Some static issues. Can't wear with tights unless you got a skirt slip and some anti-static sheets. Best for summer, I'd guess. I wore with flats and a blazer for a family day gathering.
