I wore this to a wedding and received a ton of compliments!! This dress fit perfectly, I would say the only down side was that the slip kept drooping below my dress so I had to pull it up several times. But other than that, it was great!!

I wore this to a concert during the day for my bachelorette party. The dress was amazing, and I got soo many compliments. The only complaint I had was that the lining slips out, and unless you have something in the pockets, the lining will come out of that as well.

Looking great and having fun during during Mom's Weekend for my sorority
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I wore this to brunch and to a winery for my sorority's mom's weekend and it was perfect. It is a pretty casual dress and I paired it with simple white sandals and pear earrings. I wore one size down from what I typically wear in dress sizes and it fit perfectly and was comfortable enough to wear all day.

I rented this for a wedding rehearsal dinner. It was very comfortable and so cute! I wished there was an option to buy it after renting! I wore the dress in a 2 and it fit perfectly. Normally I'd wear a 4 but I read the reviews and ordered a size down. The dress also has pockets on both hips which I hadn't read anywhere, but they didn't puff out at all. Loved it!

Adore this dress!!!! Gorgeous color, super flattering fit. The 4 (my normal size) fit well, but the 2 was shorter and more snug, which I thought looked cuter. Wish I owned it, so versatile and easy to dress up or down.

Such a fun, easy to wear dress. Great for any spring/summer event day or night. Comfortable, the elastic waist did rise up a bit but runs true to size. Paired with turquoise earrings received so many compliments. I decided to wear it twice to 2 different parties!

I really like the cold shoulder detail and the pattern, but the fit was not the best and puckered in the tummy area - Not that flattering.

I rented this dress for a bachelorette weekend at the beach. Unfortunately, I chose to have this dress delivered the day we were leaving for the beach and the package did not come in time for me to take this with me on my trip. Lesson learned! But, I did try the dress on when I returned home and I would suggest that others order this dress in a size up as I'm a 2-4 and the size 4 was even a little snug.

This dress looked great on. Was a bit tight in the hip area/no give or stretch. Also the lining would show often as the exterior of the dress would ride up. But overall thought it looked good.

I wore this dress for a summer wedding and absolutely loved it! I'm busty and also have a lot of "junk in the trunk" so I went up a size than I normally wear. The 6 was perfect. It was so comfortable and I got so many compliments on it. Great dress!

Wore this for my birthday party this past weekend and received lots of compliments. My husband loved it! I usually wear a 4, but I'm glad I also ordered the 6 because the 4 was way too tight around the legs and the pockets puffed out. The 6 was great though. Definitely planning to order this again!

The top was loose, the bottom was tight and the pockets poofed out making my hips look not good. Cute dress but not for fuller hipped women.

While the size I ordered fit, the pockets built in to the dress made the material fluff out on my hips. Also, I wish I looked closer in the picture because at second glance, you can see that the top is pulling above where the elastic gathers at the waist and this made the fitting strange as well. I ended up returning the dress because it simply was not flattering. Wish it had worked out because the dress was cute on the hanger!

Great summer dress. Pretty easy fit - I am usually between 0 and 2 and I wore the 0 though I think the 2 would have been fine. Think that this dress would have looked better on someone with a more defined waist; it made me look a little boxy (doesn't really create curves). Nonetheless, very cute and I got a lot of compliments.

This dress was really pretty but it just didn't fit right. The waist was really high and not where it should be on me, because of this (and my hips) the dress would continuously ride up and bunch by my stomach. Ultimately I just wasn't able to wear it because I didn't want to have to keep pulling it down all night.

loved this dress! I wore it to a rehersal dinner last summer and it was perfect. However, if you are on the shorter side like i am keep in mind that this dress will run longer on you. I ended up belting it in order to make it appear shorter!

For some reason, this just didn't look that great on me. I have a long torso, so I think the waist just hit me in a weird spot. It was really cute on the hanger though!

This was too tight on the legs, but I knew it was a risk since the only size left was a 2 and I needed a 4. I wish I could have worn it...will try to rent again in a bigger size.

Cute dress! Wore it to my birthday dinner and received many compliments. I also thought the dress was appropriate for work when worn with a boyfriend blazer. Runs true to size, and if you run between two sizes, I suggest going with the smaller, since the stretchy waist may make a larger size look bulky on you.

I'm going to say "True to size" because I think it fit perfectly besides in the hip area. I have a really small waist along with wider hips, so unfortunatly both of the sizes that I ordered didn't fit me. It is such a cute dress! It was too tight at my lower hips, so it buckled.

I got a size too big in this dress since they did not have the size I needed and it just did not work out. I'm smaller in the bust and it was just too big up top. If you are smaller in the bust make sure to order a size down as well.
