Pretty just not my style

I usually wear a M and ordered a L in this dress. It fit perfectly. It's pretty just isn't my style so I didn't wear it.

Lots of compliments

Worn to work and received many compliments. Even as a petite person with flats on the dress draped nicely and had enough shape to avoid the me drowning in a paper bag look. Nice pattern and colors. Love the easy breezy material. Almost thought about buying, but didn't have the budget for it.

Never wore

The top half of the dress was a hit. The bottom half was a miss. The layer underneath across the bottom hem of the dress had the stripes running horizontally, while the other stripes were running in a more vertical diagonal pattern. I can't think of a woman who wants to appear shorter than she is by being cut off just below the knees. Other than that this dress would have been a dream! It was brand new with the tags still on it! Great fabric and cut. Why did the designer ruin this lovely dress with that under layer?!

Flowy and confortable!

Wore this for a friend's rooftop party and then again for work (with a light cardigan). For both occasions it worked perfectly. The top is a little big for those with a small chest, so the fabric collected a little around the waistband. I also have a pretty short torso so that didn't help. But overall it wasn't very noticeable. Would wear again.

So Fun!! Great cut and color.

Excellent vacation dress AND I wore it for a party! Pair w strappy heels - the cut in the back makes it challenging to wear with a regular bra, so I got daring and went without - felt comfortable with high neckline and layers of fabric w stripe detailing. Fun hem follows you as you walk - get it!

Perfect for summer

This was a beautiful summer dress. It is a bit see-through, so be careful with the color of your undergarments. It will need a strapless or a halter bra. I only have the former, so suggesting the latter is just an educated guess.

Go by the size chart

I loved this dress but probably should have got a medium. I looked at the chart and it suggested medium but I was afraid and ordered large due to my bust size. I'm 5'3 36 D and the back was still a little loose. No one noticed and I got a lot of compliments.

Compliments, Comfortable and Chic!

Wore this to an after work party and had a lot of compliments. It had a nice ease to it and I felt beautiful and elegant. The size was perfect and the flow of the skirt and nice room for a bigger chest. Loved it!

I love this dress

Wore this to a birthday party at a patio bar and it was so flowing! Loved everything about this dress from the style to the cute. Got several compliments. You can dress it up or down with accessories too. Big fan and will wear again.

Very cute dress that transitions to fall well

Wore it with sandals and a denim jacket to work and then knee high tan boots at night. Very cute! Has lost of room in the top so don't be afraid to order if you have larger boobs (I'm only a 34c). The waist band got a little twisted and was hard to adjust but overall really loved getting use out of this one a few times

Rented this for a day at the fair!

You can definitely dress this up or down! It's flowy and fun and I loved it! Didn't wear a bra. It's a little long but that's my only complaint - but I'm short so I expected that! Loved it for what I rented it for. Recommend!

Fun but not amazing

Bought this for a wedding shower. Loved the material and the cut of the skirt. The top was too large around the rib cage. The hooks were a pain to do myself. Liked it but wasn't in love.

Great date night dress!

Wore this for a date night and received so many compliments from complete strangers. Out of my normal comfort zone so was fun to wear. I am big busted so the halter top was very flattering and I liked the high elastic waistline.

Perfect dress for Spring/Summer formal event

I loved the style and fit of the dress! I got a Large and XLarge for sizing and the large fit better. There was too much fabric in the back with the XLarge. The material is chiffon and the stripes were bold, but fun! I wore gold Kendra Scott dangles earrings and a shawl wrap. I received many compliments and I would definitely rent this dress for another occasion!

So Many Compliments - Will Definitely Rent Again!

I LOVED this dress! It is probably my favorite rental so far. I wore this to work with a long sweater and sandals (I work in a conservative work environment). Wore it again out with friends for a date night as shown. You can dress it up or down easily. Very flattering silhouette. I think it runs slightly large, and I could have sized down as it was large on top, and there was room in the skirt portion as well. You won't regret renting this one.

I was looking forward to wearing this for a wedding.

Unfortunately, I didn't get to wear it due to poor sizing. I ordered a Small, but this fit more like a medium. Even with my long torso, the elastic waist band sat way too low. And if you have a flatter chest, like me, size down for that as well. I liked the length of the dress and the material was comfortable, so there are some pluses there.

Too sheer - I really wanted to wear it, but couldn't.

Sadly, this dress was too sheer to wear. Even with nude underwear, you could see through the lighter stripes of the dress. The XS was a little loose in the top too. I'm 34A so sometimes it happens. The length would've been great. The material was light, but not too light in weight. So sad not to be able to wear it.

Great dress--it kept me cool in the humidity, flowed nicely, and I received several compliments.

I thought the fit of this dress was great. It was a bit baggy in the chest, but you can adjust where the band fits you around the waist, so I was able to pull it down just a bit to make certain it fell nicely. The small regular might have fit me because it was a bit loose, but overall, it was perfect for the occasion I needed it for--my best friend's farm wedding! The attached image is very representative of how the dress appeared all day/evening! My favorite part--it kept me cool in the Missouri heat/humidity!

Gorgeous dress

I love this dress and should just buy it. I have rented it multiple times. I am 5'8" and 120 pounds and have rented both the XS and the S. The XS fits better, but the S is fine...it's just a little roomier. This is a classic dress that can be dressed up or down and I love the versatility. This is one of my faves.

Comfortable and flattering

I wore this for a laid back rehearsal dinner, and I loved it. The handkerchief hem worked for my height, and the elastic waistband ensured a good fit. This was for a fall rehearsal dinner but in a place where the weather was still warm, so I thought the colors made it a good transitional option. I would rent again!

Great fit and flow. Very comfortable. I wore this dress 3 or 4 times. During the day with a sweater over it and on date night. I found it to be slimming too. I almost bought it.

Flattering and flowy!

This dress was so fun! I wore it to a rehearsal dinner, but it could really be dressed up or down. It's a super flattering fit, and the way the skirt falls is really fun and flowy. Would be a great dress to have in your closet for multiple occasions!
