So much fun

Rented this for a trip to Vegas. I loved the dress it was so much fun. There is no give to the fabric however and I did find that it was a little hard to zip up.

so pretty but tricky sizing

i love this dress and really wanted to make it happen, unfortunately it is a really tricky fit because of fitted chest and side zip. (according to net a porter) a 36 is the equivalent of a u.s. 00 or xxs. it is definitely far from a u.s. zero. smaller than a dolce and gabbana 36 too. if you have a narrow chest it will work, it is not fitted at the waist or hips.

Not sure

I have a hard time with dresses with side zippers when the fabric doesn't have any stretch or give to it. If this dress doesn't fit you hair right, it is hard since the fabric doesn't stretch. It was also really full at below the chest so for petite people it isn't the most flattering silhouette: on the flip side, the fabric itself is very nice and fun colors

Bust so small it should be a child size

Could not even get this dress zipped up past my bust at first. Finally zipped it around my waist and squeezed in...oh boy....it looked like I was oozing out of the top. This dress is not tailored well for a lady of any bust size. The bottom looks great, but never even got to wear it out it was so embarrassing.

Loved the idea of this dress but it just didn't fit right

Hoped to wear this to an outdoor event because it seemed cool, summery and somewhat unusual, plus I figured I could wear a regular bra with it. Perhaps it's because I have a slight frame but it made me look like a child wearing an Easter smock. Cute, maybe, but not very flattering or dressed up. Will return for something else.

Lovely midi dress but ohhhh so tight. I wasn't able to wear it out. Shipping back and getting a 38 instead. I'll post a picture. Hope the 38 fits.

Comfortable, Classy and Colorful!

This dress was fabulous. I work in a very relaxed environment and it was perfect. The length was unique and the cut in straps and around the waist were extremely complementary. I would buy this for comfortable days in the park for a picnic or dress down days at the office. I've always been a Valentino fan but this was one of my favorites. Colorful and unique but still extremely classy.

Throw on and go

Dress fits completely true to size and length is fairly long (I hardly have a chest, consider going up in size if you're more full up top). I am 5'9" and the dress skimmed the middle of my shin bones. Light weight and comfortable fabric. Be sure to have a steamer available day of to get out any wrinkles from shipping. Highly recommend.

Colorful, sophisticated sundress. The 42R was a tad large, but it wasn't an issue. This dress was very comfortable and definitely a stand-out!

Beautiful!

I rented the 40R and 42R and ended up being able to fit in both but happier in the 42R. I have a smaller chest (32b) was able to wear my strapless bra with both options. The zipper on both dresses, located under your left arm, are difficult because of the seam under the chest. I would strongly suggest shifting the dress to your stomach to zip and shimmy it up to avoid any aggravating zipper issues. This is the perfect dress for a semiformal or formal wedding. You will be able to dance the night away and be comfortable the entire time! Wear with gold statement earrings and nude heels and you are good to go! Had so much fun dancing the night away that I forgot to take a picture! I will absolutely rent this dress again!!

My favorite rental yet!

I wore this dress to a September wedding and I think it was my favorite rental thus far. It was perfect for that transitional time between summer and fall. The colors, stripes and fabric were all lovely - very chic! I fit into both the 38 and 40, but beware, the zipper is tough to get up which is why I ended up wearing the 40 - you'll probably need help zipping! Overall, very stylish and beautiful dress!

Flattering midi dress that is easy to dress up or down. Fits true to size. I'm 5'7" and it was the perfect length with heels.

Loved this dress! The colors and fabric are great, and the fit is perfect to be moving around and feel comfortable while looking chic. Lots if compliments. It was longer on me than on the fit model, but not a big deal at all.

Beautiful fabric, whimsical style

The fabric is very beautiful. It gives the dress structure and has a subtle sheen. I'm very busty so I worried this wouldn't fit but it did!

Pretty but strange fit

I'm usually a size 0/36 but I rented the 38 because of the reviews. Indeed, it ran small so I'm glad I got the larger size. Also true that the zipper really was hard to zip up, I was so worried I was going to rip it. It was pretty and unique but overall the shape/fit wasn't the most flattering, so that's why it's 4 stars and not 5. Glad I rented it though, pretty for vacation.

Fun and different!

I LOVE this dress. It was super comfortable, light, and a simple fit with a very bold pattern. I liked that it was long, but I never felt too warm even in 80 degree weather. Only cons would be that the straps kept falling down, but still covered my bra straps. The waist was a little larger than I would have preferred but the size down would not zip up comfortably near my bust. Like most are saying, if you have a larger bust, I would size up on one of your sizes just in case. I would definitely recommend it!

Great dress for an ambiguous dress code; it helped to thread the needle between casual and formal.

Make sure to order a larger backup size if you have a D+ bust measurement. I couldn't get the 42R fully zipped.

Wore this to a rehearsal dinner in the mountains and it was perfect -- the length and cut felt summery while the beautiful silk material still read formal. So comfortable too!

Easy to wear

The colors are fabulous, fun and just made me feel wonderful all day. The dress I received seemed to have been stretched out (up top) a bit so it fit a lot looser than I hoped and could have sized down. I still wore the dress and just had to adjust the sliding straps now and again. I was able to wear a regular bra with the dress.

Gorgeous

Rented this for my trip to the Caribbean. Loved it, it's lightweight (great for my luggage and warm weather). I am petit, but it was still pretty tight on my breast but not tight on my waist, I am sure if I had sized it up it would be really loose on my waist

I'm a 32c and I had a hard time zipping this dress up. It also had to be steamed before to get wrinkles out, but it's definitely a compliment-worthy piece!

Striking but tricky

Loved this dress. The color palette is unusual and striking and you can dress it more up or down for the occasion. There were a few things that keep me from giving it five stars. The fabric is thin and the dress itself has seen better days - especially in the zipper area where the zipper was worn and fraying. I was worried it wouldn't fit as I am a DD and it's recommended for A or smaller, but I was fine, I think because I'm petite. If you're not petite and have a large chest I wouldn't recommend this dress. It's not THE most flattering cut for an hourglass figure either; the waist sits high. Probably best for more boyish or pear shaped figures.

This dress was a dream. Pros: unique, beautiful, comfortable, can be dressed up or down. Cons: wrinkles easily. I loved this dress and was devastated when I had to return it.

Long dress but lovely for a fancy dinner outing!

The dress was longer on me, hitting closer to my ankles than my shins, but it worked out fine with wedges (and I was actually sitting for most of the evening). Super comfortable and pretty!

The dress is gorgeous, my only comment is that material wrinkles easily. See all my other rentals at @deana.mamlieva on Insta.
