Professional flounce
I love this dress. It fit really well, cinched at the waist, with a little bit of a structured flounce. I wore a blazer during the day at my conference and took it off for night. Even though sleeveless the material has a nice thickness that worked in colder weather. The color blocking is also very flattering. At my height it was a great length above the knee. Loved this!

This dress was absolutely perfect for Valentine's Day!
Fits true to size, however it was very very short. I am about 5'8'' and usually comfortable in a short dress but I had to wear tights with this one. Which was fine considering the fact that I live in cold snowy Michigan! They actually ended up looking really cute! Rented the Kendra Scott necklace pictured on the model and it completed the look. Will definitely rent again!

Awesome dress! Comfortable and adorable!
I rented this dress for an opening night party for a production I was in! This dress is awesome! I rented the four and 6 and while I was glad fle the backup the four fit perfectly! The dress was So cute and youthful. A little more casual then I expected but the length was perfect for a shorter girl like me and overall it was wonderful for a first rental. The pleats were adorable and the black band helped give the dress a great shape on a curvy girl like me! Would definitely recommend this dress

So cute!
Dress was fantastic and fit perfectly! It's a great dress for athletic body types because it shows off the arms and legs. I had ordered a different necklace but the Lily Pulitzer one worked just fine with pearl earrings. I wore this with nude pumps.

I love this dress and would totally buy it!!
I rented this dress for an outdoor surprise party I was throwing a friend. I loved this dress!! Nothing flashy, but the bottom of the dress has a little volume to give it something special. I usually wear a size 2 but opted for the size 0 in this one as the 2 was a little baggy (I think it was just stretched out). The dress was definitely on the shorter side, I'm 5'5 and wore 4 inch heels too but I didn't feel inappropriate at all in the setting I was in. I would totally buy this dress if given the chance!!

Perfect for Charity Event!
Fit is very flattering. It was winter, so I wore black tights with a grey pump.

Cute & flirty
Fabric is probably better suited to be worn in the fall. Nice quality. It is pretty short. I'm 5'4 and wore flats and still felt it was too short for me. Better suited for someone younger.

Great party dress!
Fits great. Very comfortable. Fabric very forgiving with a bit of stretch. Great for large chest. Only thing is it was VERY short. Probably would wear black tights next time.

Comfortable dress
This dress was great for a late fall and somewhat casual wedding. I didn't think it was huge wow but it had the perfect amount of stretch and fit like a glove. I was expecting it to be a green-grey but the color is much more blue in person.

Not my favorite.
The dress was nicely made but not that flattering. It has a full skirt that accentuates a pear shape...in not such a good way. It is also too short to wear to work. A work party would be ok. Just not a great dress for a petite pear shaped figure.

Couldn't wear it. Far too clingy
I am a regular size 8 and rented the 8 and 10. The 10 was too tight. You cannot have any belly problems to wear this dress. Too bad because it was cute!

Beautiful comfortable dress with good stretch
I needed a dress for a bridal shower that would fit my postpartum / nursing body. This was perfect. It had good stretch in the chest and sat nicely on my hips. Probably could have worn a size down. I loved the color and A line look with a little flare. The belt is a nice touch. I would buy this dress.

Cute dress with a fun short skirt
This dress was fun to wear. Nice fabric and a little daring shorter skirt. It fit true to size, if not slightly roomy. The teal color is great for Fall.

Awesome little date night dress!
Dress is stretchy and great for showcasing a small waist! Very classy but kind of short! Great for a date but maybe not the office! Hubby loved it!

Soft and comfortable!
Even tho this dress is a tad short I wore it to work. It a bit stretchy fabric and feels very comfortable. I ordered the 4 but should have gotten the 2. Very cute, my husband says it's a bit dressy for work but I wore it.

Overall, good
Only negative is that the skirt flares more than I'd like but it's a nice dress and a good length for a short woman. I'm petite and the smaller size hit my waist better than the size I normally wear. The fabric has a business casual feel and it looks less dressy in person than in the picture with the model. It's perfect for work and can be dressed up for a cocktail party. Here, I paired it with a bolero sweater I own.

I had compliments all night.
It was a little big over all but it still worked. The colors are different in real life then in the photo but still pretty. This is a more casual dress, prefect for a party or date.

Everyone loved my dress and kept asking where I got it! I was so happy to tell them it was rented
The ponte knit fabric was so comfortable for a long night of dancing and mingling. I have a small waist relative to my butt so this circle skirt paired with a waist-defining contrast detail was perfect for my body shape. The cap sleeves gave nice balance to the fuller skirt, and they didn't bother my armpits like most cap sleeves do on me. I dressed it up with some glam jewels since the knit fabric makes it a bit more casual.

So adorable!
Wore this on a date and it was so cute and perfect! I definitely think a 2 would have fit better (RTR didn't have the size available) but I'm still really happy with it. Wish I owned!

Perfect for casual outdoor wedding
Loved this dress for a casual outdoor wedding. I'm usually a size 6 but preferred the size 4 for this. The 6 sat a little bit weird on my hips. If definitely recommend it. It's really comfortable but a bit short.

Loved this dress but is super short!
Ok so this dress runs large up top, the 2 fit so much better all around but it was a tad bit short for the occasion (baptism mass). Which is surprising because I'm 5' and never have a problem with dresses being too short. I wore the 4 since it was a more appropriate length. If I rent this dress again for a less conservative setting I would absolutely go for the 2. With that said the rich dark teal color is BEAUTIFUL

Would rent again!
I really loved this dress! I didn't think it would be all that fabulous when I placed the order but I was pleasantly surprised! This fit is so flattering and everybody loved it! The material is great weight and I just loved the drop waist. I will probably rent this again. I paired it with the Kendra Scott necklace shown in the picture! Definitely worth it! The 4 was a little loose on me but I don't know if the 2 would have been better because it was so slight.

This dress was perfect!
This dress was beautiful! I am usually a size 4-6 in dresses but I read that this one ran big so I ordered the sizes 2 and 4. The size 2 fit me better but was too short so I wore the 4 and it was great. Also the dresses came a day early which was wonderful.

Gorgeous and classic for a cocktail party
This dress was a little big in the waist for me - I could have probably worn a 2 instead of a 4. Regardless, it was absolutely perfect for my event and I got a ton of compliments. I rented the Kendra Scott necklace pictured with the model and it completed the look perfectly.

Great casual dress--very comfortable
Loved this dress. I ended up wearing it twice during my rental period. Once to a birthday party and once just to a lunch with a friend. It would be super cute with a jean jacket and flats. Or wedges and a leather jacket

Much better in person than in photos!
I rented this dress for a rehearsal dinner preceding a wedding. This was my second choice dress between the two dresses I rented, but I ended up loving this one more than the one I wore to the wedding! The dress is very flattering but a little short, so girls on the taller side may want to skip this one. Also - size down a dress size, the 4 was huge on me!

A short dress, nice color but not great for tall girls
This dress would probably be most flattering on someone shorter and curvier. Overall it's just not flattering and a little awkward on straight & narrow girls. It has a beautiful unique color and a classy cut. The skirt is pretty voluminous, so be prepared for that.

Great dress!
This dress runs a bit larger, so I went down to a 0. I typically wear between a 2 - 4. For reference, I'm 5 ft, 120 lbs, athletic build. I work this dress for a work holiday party and it was great. The price was awesome but it was modest, without being too boring. I liked the little flare to the skirt! 10/10

Easily transitioned from day to night.
Soooo comfortable. The fabric feels like sweatshirt material and the cut doesn't require any special undergarments. Paired with a long sleeved shirt and flats for day then switched to a blazer and heels for night.

Dress fit perfectly and was structured so well
The dress fit perfectly and did not run large in the slightest. The zipper was easy to handle by myself and the bottom of the dress was beautiful and flowy. The dress was absolutely perfect, no complaints at all. I received a lot of compliments while wearing the dress.
ACOctober 21, 2012
Hello there, Can you please tell me where the bottom of the dress fell on you? Was it above your knee or below? If above how above your knee was it approximately? I'm also 5'0" and a lot of dresses always fall below my knee and make me look shorter. Thank you!
NancyOctober 27, 2012
Angeline, I don't know how to reply directly to your comment so I hope you see this! The dress fell right above my knees. I don't remember how much above the knee or have any pictures of the entire full length. Hope that helps!
ACOctober 28, 2012
Thanks Nancy! Very Helpful as you're 5'0" just like me!

Loved it!!!!!
This dress is amazing! I wore it to an engagement party in October and it couldn't have been more perfect. The dress runs true to size and is very comfrotable...it is almost like a sweatshirt material. You can definitely dress this up or down depending on the occasion.

Comfortable dress that goes from day to night
The dress fell 2 inches above my knee. The material was thick but very comfortable. The dress was a bit baggy on my petite frame - but worked well enough. I saw a girl with more curves wearing the dress and I thought it looked better on her. I wore it to work with a cardigan and black tights and received many compliments. It transitioned well to an evening cocktail party.
