Amazing dress

This dress is a show stopper. I rented it for work and the only con is it is very low cut and I needed a tank under. The fit is beautiful and the fabric is heavy which is great for winter in SoCal.

Love the red

This is the perfect deep red! It is a bit low cut though be prepared for that. It falls nicely and looks and feels high end like all of Proenza Schouler's dresses. I loved this dress!

Many compliments on this dress at my office. It runs small- I normally wear a 0 or 2 &I needed the 4

Beautiful fit and fabric / stitching looks very upscale

Beautiful but low cut, didn't wear it

Really nice fabric and interesting nice cut. Too low at cleavage to wear to the event I wanted, couldn't figure out what to wear under it to be less revealing. Ran slightly small. Lovely but didn't end up wearing it.

Comfy and classy

I liked this dress and received a lot of compliments. I was a little surprised by how the material was. It was a little robe like but very comfortable and nicely lined. It ran a tad large...I think mostly bc if the design and that the waste isn't cinched much, but that wasn't a negative.

Ran really small. Color is a dark red not a bright burgundy like in the photo

The loop in the front looked pretty funny and it was way lower cut than expected. Overall, not a great rental. I returned without wearing

Gorgeous dress for a winter party!

This dress was perfect for a holiday party on a freezing cold night. The material is thick and beautiful. The dress is very unusual and I received lots of compliments. I am pear-shaped and ordered a 6. The dress ended up being very tight around the waist and rib cage, which never happens when I order a 6 (usually the problem is around the hips. If you're larger up top or in the waist, I'd recommend ordering a size up.

Comfort and Style

This dress was very easy to wear. The material was heavy, but still comfortable. The front is low cut, so I wore a camisole. It is true to size.

The dress has great movement when you walk. The deep red and double lining are nice touches.

Looks great with a pair of heels. A Cami is needed to make it work ready, I had one in the same color red and it looked like an original part of the dress.

LOVED this dress!!

I rented this for a presentation I had to give to the owners of the company where I work. I received tons of compliments throughout the day, and felt SO confident presenting to the board! I would own this dress if I could! :)

Beautifully weighted fabric, with an unusual but elegant cut and gorgeous color

This dress is a work of art. It's beautifully constructed and very comfortable to wear. The fabric is slightly thicker and textured, with a lovely lining. I received several compliments - the skirt flows nicely and it's perfect for the cooler days of fall.

Great quality and fit ... this is a winner!

This dress fit me perfectly. The fabric is thick with a bit of stretch. Hangs beautifully - no need for shapewear. The front is low, but since I intended to use it as a jumper it was fine. I wore the dress twice before returning it. The first time was with a cream top with pleated sleeves, cream stocking and beige booties. The second time was with a black blouse with small white circles, black tights and black heels. Sorry no pictures. Both times I was comfortable all day. I'll definitely rent this dress again.

gorgeous dress!

this is a beautiful deep red and incredibly flattering. i am short so this hit my ankles, but i wore high heels and it worked out beautifully. i am typically a 4 and that worked out comfortably. i ended up wearing a cami under because the V was quite deep, but i don't think the nude cami took away from anything. the fabric is a touch thicker so great for fall/winter. i highly highly highly recommend this dress.

Feminine and flirty! Love everything-- the cut, length, slit in front, French front tie.

I wore this dress with a black t under it for a modern ballet performance. Then, I wore it in Sonoma at a dinner with guys I went to high school with-- no shirt. Without a shirt I showed more bra than I liked--- didn't have dress tape with me. The skirt is amazing and the feminine cut is perfect for someone who is poised and feminine or a bit of a tomboy.

Elegant and comfy

I wore this dress for meetings in Bangkok and Beijing - it was formal, but I stood out from the usual sea of blue and black business attire. The red is very elegant and the lines are sophisticated and fun. As much as I loved the fit of the top portion and the flare of the skirt. It's very low cut, so if you are busty, it's not appropriate for work.

Low-cut but nice length, loved the asymmetry

Ok, first and foremost: this is a low-cut dress. Like: I don't own a bra that would work with it. That said, I also don't have a terribly large chest, so it was a non-issue for me (at least the first night I wore it for a date night). It hung nicely, and I thought the length was conservative enough to leave a little to the imagination. The color is rich and lovely. I did try it for a cocktail party as well, and felt much less comfortable in that situation, mostly because I was moving a lot more (i.e. more opportunities for wardrobe malfunction!) Luckily, nothing slipped, BUT it was more challenging to wear in that situation.

Great fabric, comfortable & beautiful

I liked this dress even more than I thought I would. Fit great, the fabric was a dream, and it really made me feel beautiful. Note: the neckline is cut pretty much down to the navel, so I had to wear a black cami underneath, but it was still excellent. Would rent again.
