Cute but runs small

Runs smaller than most Reformation dresses. I had already sized up and it was still too tight.

Pretty but runs small

Own a few ref dresses in my normal size 6 and the occasional 4, but couldn't get this one zipped past my ribs. The bodice is small, hips/everything else fine. Cute dress though, so might try the size up.

All the right ingredients but not a good recipe

This one fell flat to me for what it should be. The fabric felt kind of cheap. It needs a better waist and I tried to belt it but couldn't quite make this work.

Cute dress, but sizing is super weird. I normally wear either 4 or 6. Wore size 10.

Looks cute under a leather jacket/jean jacket

Cute flowery fun

Got this for a trip and ended up returning it for a larger size. (I'm usually in between a 4 and a 6 and went with the 6.) I wore a size 4 in a similar style from Reformation last season, so be sure to size up!

Runs SO SMALL

I have a bunch of reformation and I'm always a 0 or 2 but I ordered this one in a 4 and it was still too small! Wish I ordered the 6. The chest was super tight and I'm only a 34a! I liked the idea of the dress but definitely size up!

Perfect for spring

I'm usually a size 6/8, but followed others recommendations and sizes up for a 10, which fit my nicely. The length was perfect with some heeled boots and the off the shoulder was the perfect bit of sexy with this feminine fit.

Tight in the tummy

This could have been a knockout, but it was very tight in the tummy. I'm an hourglass shape, but the fit for me was just off. Someone leaner would benefit.

So pretty

I usually wear a size 6 in dresses. After reading the reviews, I ordered a 10 and it fit perfect. I wore it to dinner at a bachelorette party and to my husband's birthday dinner. The off the shoulder makes it sexy but the length keeps it casual. Perfect with my leather jacket thrown over my shoulders. Great dress!

Order Up

Loved this dress, but it was really difficult to zip and smooshed my boobs a bit. It wasn't enough to make me not wear the dress, but if I rented it again, I would go with an 8. I typically wear a 6 Reformation.

Size up if you have a healthy bust.

Rented this for an anniversary dinner. Sized up once because of reviews but I'm a bit busty and, when it arrived, learned I needed to size up twice to get it to zip. Wasn't able to wear for that date but will rent again because it's cute.

Runs WAY smaller than most Reformations

I am a 2/4, but typically a size 4 in Reformation. I saw the reviews saying to size up, but I figured I always went up to the 4 and it would be no big deal. I was wrong. I can't get the zipper past my waist. I would need at least a 6 to get it to fit.

Love but runs 2 sizes too small!

I am busty but I have no butt. I usually wear a size 4, but the reviews said to size up. Size 6 wasn't available so I took the 8 just to try it. Glad I got the 8'because it fit perfectly. Poor sizing but it worked out. I wore this to a rehearsal dinner. Attire was smart casual and this did the trick!

Gorgeous dress!

I loved this dress so much! I wore it for a daytime wedding and got so many compliments. As common for the brand, it definitely ran small. I typically wear a 0 or 2 and sized up to a 4 and it fit perfectly. The material was lightweight but didn't feel cheap. Could be super cute dressed up or down. Definitely recommend as long as you size up!

Weird sizing but incredible otherwise

This dress was incredible!! flattering and fun to wear. The sizing as other reviewers mentioned is definitely off, even for reformation which runs small generally. I'm a 4/6 but usually size up to a 6 or 8 with reformation. I ended up sizing up again to the 10 bc while the 8 fit like a glove it wasn't super comfortable and I didn't want to have to wear spanx. just a personal preference, the 8 prob would have been fine otherwise!

I should have listened to the reviews. 0 is almost never too small for me but this was. I couldn't zip it over my rib cage. It's a pretty dress and I may try it in a 2 at some point. Material is very lightweight. I

Easy to transition from casual to dressy-ish

I found this dress to be TTS and super versatile. I wore it with a denim jacket and sneakers for work and dinner, then wore it with a leather jacket for a more formal affair. I'm tall and this was an easy length for me - falling somewhere between a midi and maxi, without being unflattering.

Great dress!

I rented this for a wedding this past weekend and I absolutely loved it. I agree with most other reviewers, it definitely runs small - one size up fit perfectly. The fabric hangs beautifully and I loved that the straps could be worn off the shoulder or up for more coverage. I may even rent this one again I loved it so much!

Reformation Love!

Dress was perfect for a semi-casual wedding. Super easy to wear and fun boho look. Dress does run small as everyone said. I'm usually a 6-8 and wore a 10. I'm also bustier, but had no problem wearing a strapless bra.

SIZE UP :)

I really loved this dress and didn't want to wear something of my own because it was so pretty but it was TIGHT. I'm usually a 6, an 8 if it runs small. The 8 would barely zip and the hips were so tight. The dress has no give so size up at least two sizes or you won't be able to breath

Could not wear it returned.

It was very pretty and fabric light...I could not wear it was so small. I think there is a sizing problem with this dress I ordered a 10R but it fit more like a 6. Going up to a 12R I am sure would still not fit.

It's very sweet, yet sexy.

I got compliments all day. It definitely hits you in all the right places--I have no hips or boobs, but it definitely gave the appearance of curves. My guy loved it so much I think he's going to buy it outright so I'll wear it again :) Definitely runs small and I wouldn't recommend it to someone that actually has a chest.

Perfect for a Spring wedding

Runs small! I have Reformation dresses in size 8 but couldn't get the 10 zipped. There is no support if you have a large chest so a bra is needed. Dress is pretty and lightweight to easily move in.

This dress made me feel super elegant and formal without being overdone.

For being a shorter girl (5'3") I was a bit worried about the length but it ended up working perfectly with a pair of low heels. It was a hair tight in the arms and through the chest, so someone with a larger bust size might want to size up. Other than that it was absolutely perfect for an early spring wedding, just enough coverage for me to be warm and comfortable. I absolutely loved this dress.
