Great fit and a simple but interesting style - perfect for work.

Great fit, very flattering on an hourglass shape.

Form fitting but adorable.

This dress is so cute but I think I chose the wrong size. I’m between a 10/12 but this style is more form-fitting. The buttons are functioning, snap buttons which means there's no give, especially in the hips.

Too small, too pink.

I can usually wear a 10 or 12 in dresses, but couldn't zip this up in a 10. I loved the snaps on the skirt, but the fabric was thinner than I expected, and the color was more of a raspberry than a maroon. I may try this in the 12 in black, though!

Weirdly large in boob area

Dress is cute and fits ok everywhere except the bust area. I'm a size 6, 34C and actually even nursing a baby right now so boobs are larger than normal for me yes still the sewn "darts" for the bust area make this look loose in the bust...so strange

Great color, weird fit

Nice work dress. Color is plum-ish. The fit is a little odd - can't lift arms all the way up because restrictive sleeves and my chest doesn't fill the top out. But overall, I like this dress. Will wear it once to work.

Lots of compliments

I wrote this dress to a friend's birthday and it was a huge hit! So many compliments!! Fit great on me, but I have a larger chest. My friend tried it in and she has a smaller chest and the darts didn't look as good. Something to keep in mind if you are renting this dress. But I loved it and was almost going to buy it!!

Fun work addition

Loved this one for my work rotation. I am glad I got the 6 rather than 4 only because the buttons in the front aren't just decorative...they hold the dress together, so you certainly can't have those getting tight at all. I was fine except when squatting I would pop the bottom one (revealing nothing!) This left be a fair bit of room in the chest, but it still looked perfect.

The color of the dress is beautiful and the button detailing a very nice detail. It runs on the small side. Will rent again on size 8.

This is a gorgeous dress! I fit well all over except in the bust area.

The color, overall fit and details of this dress are all fantastic. I struggled with the bust area, the dress was tight through my chest and this created a funny gathering of material around my bust.

Business Chic

This is a gorgeous dress. I received so many compliments on it! Fit, fabric and color is great. The only reason I gave a four out of five was because it was a little tight for me through the back/shoulders, but only when I reached up high. Other than that it was great! Will definitely rent again!

Work dress

Fit well and lots of compliments. True to size, wore a 2 (I'm 5'1, 125lbs) . Would look better if you have a bigger bust bust still looked very professional!

Rented for work, but wore for Valentine's!

I originally rented this dress for work, but when I tried it on I realized it was too short on me (I'm 5'8") to be professional. I held onto the dress because the pretty fuchsia color was perfect for Valentine's Day. I wore it out to dinner, and my boyfriend loved it! Super cute, and fit like a glove.

The dress is super cute, but was way too tight. Also, the color is more of a raspberry.

Bust area runs SMALL , if in doubt SIZE up

Very pretty color however does run small. I'm a full D, size 6 and it was tight across chest. Couldn't raise arms up to give someone a hug. Getting myself zipped was a true struggle. The buttons on bottom will pop open if dress too tight around thigh area. If in doubt SIZE UP

Beautiful but Short

Loved this dress and wore to multiple meetings and events. I normally wear a 12 but got a 14 for length and thankful that I did. It was still short but I pulled it off with black tights and high heeled boots. When standing...it wasn't horribly short but when I sat down...THAT was when it really got short. Worth the rent, just be cognizant of the length

LOVE this dress!

The fit of this dress is so flattering and the asymmetrical design with gold button snap detail gives it some flair. Was a perfect dress to wear to work. I'm excited to rent the black color too!

Snug on my hips, I'd size up if you're pear shaped.

Beautiful color and design but runs small, especially in the bust.

Didn't end up wearing as it was way to tight in the bust - I'm a DDD. Would recommend sizing up one or two sizes if you're on the bustier side like me.

Beautiful color!

I wore this to work and received lots of complements on the color. It was more fuchsia than pictured. The arms were very constricting so if you have to do a lot of overhead reaching during the day this may be a little uncomfortable for you.

very flattering. A little short (but I'm tall)

Comfortable, cute detail. A little snug in the chest. I'm a 36c and I was wearing a 6, I'm typically top heavy in clothing. Color is true to pic, buttons are silver. Super flattering and professional.

Absolutely loved this dress. It was the perfect cut, fit and color for work. The length was perfect and the button detail made it interesting and fun. Seriously would consider buying, but at least renting again! Compliments came from coworkers and students alike!

If in between, size up

As others mentioned, the dress really isn't red like pictured. More of a magenta color and I felt it looked borderline Barney-esque. If in between, size up! The arms were INSANELY restricting and I couldn't reach them over my head. The buttons popped open a few times too.

Too big

It was too big so I couldn't wear it :( The material was really nice. However, the zipper was very sturdy...too sturdy, it took me a long time to unzip it. Thought I was going to have to live in the dress!!

Nice fabric and color. Awkward fit.

Pretty color and unique buttons. Fit was loose on top and comfortable but a little tight on bottom, so returned it. Cute in pictures though. Not practical for work.

Very cute great color. Perfect for work.

I saw the reviews that says it runs small so I went for a size up (I am between 4/6 so went with 6). Turns out it’s too big.

Short but adorable

This one is a little short. I'm between a 6 and an 8 and got the 8 for length, but would have fit in the 6 just fine. The color is much better and richer in person. It's just structured enough that it's really flattering while still being comfortable.

Great style even though little odd on the top

Wore this for work, and I will wear it a few more times before returning it. Love the color- kind of a rich raspberry- and the snaps and asymmetrical hem make it unique. The snaps are legit snaps, so the bottom one does at times unsnap on me, so you have to watch for that. Darts for bust don't line up with my chest at all, although I'm not busty either. Could be filled out more if you're bustier, but then the sleeves would be more restrictive so it's kind of an odd fit there. Not much stretch to the dress, but I did have a baby 11 mos ago and it did cover my reducing baby belly really well, so there is a little room to breathe. The snaps also help to visually slim. Love this and fun to wear but I don't know that I would buy it. Photo is taken after working at a desk for much of the day, so creases slightly but not bad. BF complimented me before work this morning, so it's a win there!
