So cute and flattering

Really loved this dress, the wrap in the front makes it super flattering & hides any bit of stomach you may not want on display in a body con type dress. Will most likely rent again and probably buy

Lovely yet clingy

I really wanted to love this dress. The color is gorgeous and I the 3/4 sleeves are perfect. Unfortunately, it is very clingy, and the fabric shows every line and lump. I wore tights to minimize lines, but I still felt self conscious all day. I did get a ton of complements. Other than the clinginess, it's a perfect work dress.

I rented this dress for work.

The cranberry color of this dress is gorgeous, however I had problems with the fit. This dress runs very small and is too short for the workplace. I ended up not wearing the dress as it wouldn't be appropriate for my job. I would suggest ordering a size up, and be sure that you are comfortable with it being clingy, as this dress is not forgiving.

Cute and comfortable dress but not as flattering for a pregnant woman

I ordered this dress for a family reunion. I am 22 weeks pregnant, 5'6 and 160lbs. My belly is all in front. This dress is very comfortable for a pregnant woman, nice and stretchy. The issue I had was that it's wrap style skirt around my belly just looked odd. Because of my belly the skirt part was popped out and it just looked akward. I feel that if it didn't have that then it would be a great dress for me at 22 weeks. I suggest the Pebbles dress by Diane Vin Furstenburg which is what I went with instead and it was perfect and I felt amazing in it!

Pretty but not sized correctly

Not sure if someone washed this and shrunk it or it just runs small, but I ordered a large and it felt like a size 8. If it had fit it would have looked nice but i couldn't leave the house in it.

Nice dress for the fall to wear to work and then out afterwards. It was fitted but slimming. Would definitely rent again.

Perfect work dress

I generally dress casual at work, but we were hosting an event, so I rented this. It fit perfect, was totally comfortable and warm (I am almost always cold). Very flattering without being too showy.

Worked for 2 events!

The dress is a multi-tasker. Wore to one event with casual jacket and another banquet without. It is a slim fit so I sized up and was happy. The wrap is mock and stays secure. The color is more of a purple tone in person.

Great for a date!

Nice color. Good length on me which means it might be a bit on the shorter side for others. Rented this for work initially but thought it was just a bit too curve hugging.

Order size up!

I'm so glad I ordered one size up, otherwise this dress would have been too small. It was a good length on me, hitting me just above the knee. I wore tights under which helped to smooth out my shape, this dress isn't very forgiving in that department. Otherwise I did receive several compliments on this one.

It is a snug fit, I recommend spanx if you want to hide anything.

Neat belt on this one and beautiful color!

The dress was a little small and it seemed that it was worn allot because some of the stitching was unraveling. The material is a very nice thick material that kept me warm. It was pretty comfortable but I did feel a little big in it. It gathered at my waist weird. But, I will probably wear it again before I return it.

Cute, simple dress for work. Runs *slightly* small, but not too bad. Shows EVERYTHING though, so I'd reccomend Spanx

Beautiful dress

This is lovely in person although the neckline is a true crew neck ( I was expecting a bit more of a boat neck). It is quite tight in the bust but the wrap part is very flattering.

Work Holiday Party

I'm a busty, curvy gal and this fit well in the right places. I needed Spanx to help with my belly but overall I loved the fit. It doesn't hide a lot but was very comfortable. Slightly more "hug" than i'd hope but was good for the occasion

I didn't love the fit of this dress, although it s a beautiful color! I opted not to wear as it I think it would also be a better option for warmer weather.

The fabric has lots of stretch. It is not forgiving at all, so Spanx are highly recommended.

Great for packing

I packed this for a work trip and was happy to have a wrinkle free outfit! It fits comfortable and forms to your body. The color is better in person. Only complaint was the belt buckle would slowly loosen during the day- but I could have probably tried to knot it differently.

This dress it really fitted in the bust and too short for work. Maybe will try again with the next size up.

Flattering and adorable

Can't rave about this dress enough. I wore it to brunch, work, you name it. Didn't want to give it back! The material is superb, and the belt/front wrap gives it some flavor. It is super flattering and a great color. It is stretchy and a very appropriate length.

Great dress, but its form fitting on top

Great length for a petite. Color is much prettier in person, more of a purple or burgundy hue than red. Was perfect for an event that wasnt quite cocktail but still dressy. True to size but the top is very formfitting. My only complaint was the neckline, i needed to wear a long necklace to break up the front of the dress a bit.

Obsessed with this dress! It is SO comfy! Perfect for work!

Loved this dress. It was flattering, TTS, easy to wear, comfortable and cute! It is definitely form-fitting, but the wrap skirt helps make it flattering! That gives it some flow. It was great for work, just pair with tights!

Surprisingly stunning!

Had to play around and tighten it at the buckle to fit better on my petite frame but this is a surprisingly stunning dress. Great color. Perfect for winter!

Runs small

This dress was beautiful and i loved the style, but it ran really small. I usually wear a medium or large so i ordered the large to be safe. The large was extreamly small. I plan to order an XL if one is available.

The medium was too small on the bottom and the large was too big on the top- I'm usually a size 4/6

The medium was too small on the bottom and the large was too big on the top- I'm usually a size 4/6 with curvy hips and this had a weird fit for every size. The M fit well on top but too small on the bottom and the large fit well on the bottom and was too big on top.

Too tight to wear...

This was a beautiful dress and a great color, and the style is great for work-to-evening, or a party that you don't need to be super dressy. Unfortunately it runs small - I'll size up next time. It is very fitted as is, so be prepared to wear tights or Spanx underneath to smooth everything out!

Very simple but comfortable

I originally rented this as part of my unlimited for an event, but my shipment didn't come in time so I wore it to work. I loved it! Being short it came just above my knees - much longer than shown on the model (work appropriate!) It is very fitted which I liked. I wore it with tights and did not have any issues with imperfections despite the jersey material. The color is more purple in person than red.

Good for work and play

This dress stretches, which is great. I loved the flap on the front and the color. The shade is almost pink, but closer to red. Perfect for work, a wedding or happy hour. It's very versatile.

Cute but nothing special

Very cute dress, a little short but very comfortable and nice thick material. Form fitting so you might want to wear spanx. I like this but it was a little boring
