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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

Cute and comfy

I usually wear 00 and this XS fit very well, so it may run small for others. Great color and conservative cut appropriate for professional office. It was cute but not terribly exciting. I wore it once and returned.

I ended up buying the dress. It's really comfortable and a flattering color.

The belt is a little tricky but it's otherwise a beautiful dress that I bought and will re-wear to other parties and functions.

Love this dress

I rented this for work. The dress fits like a glove (a comfortable glove since the knit fabric is stretchy) hugging my curves in all the right ways while still being completely appropriate for work. I added a statement necklace to dress it up a bit. Love the fit, color and asymmetrical front hem. The fabric is thick so it's good for a cooler day. Very good quality. I usually wear a small (size 6) but medium is marked as size 6 for this one and it fit perfectly. I'm 5'2" and the dress was a perfect short length for me. It may be too short for a taller woman. This dress fits so well I am considering buying it.

Gorgeous color, perfect fit

I got so many complements on this wine colored jersey beauty. It was so easy and comfortable to wear and I love the front flap of the skirt, it helps to hide any clinging around the belly yet still provides the body con look.

Comfortable and great fall color!

This dress was very comfortable and fit like a glove. However, it was a bit short in the back since I'm pretty curvy. I wore it with a long sweater, would wear again with tights for more work appropriate look.

Notes on fit!

In my past experience , this brand of dress tends to run very small. I normally get a medium in stretchy dresses, but got an XL in this for a more comfortable fit. And the XL fit like I would expect the M to fit in brands like J Crew, BCBG, etc. I really liked the style & color.

I got this for outside family fall pictures- was perfect. The small was pretty fitted but felt comfortable (it's stretchy fabric). Sexy while still conservative. Really beautiful color.

Pleasantly surprised!

When I saw this dress online and even upon initially trying it on I wasn't too impressed. However, as the day went on I loved it more and more. Doesn't hide much, but nothing a pair of tights did the trick. Incredibly comfortable!

Professional dress for work, and went well with tights for winter. Material wasn't too thin, stretchy enough to be comfortable, yet form-fitting. True to size.

Great holiday dress with a hint of sexy

I rented this dress for my "dressy/business casual" work holiday party (I didn't not come up with this dress code and I too this it's stupid). Anyway, I wanted something that would be a bit body con to show off the work I've put in as well as show off some leg, but be appropriate for a work event at the same time. Things I loved about the dress include the material and how comfortable it was. I'm pretty busty, about a 32G, so there was a perfect amount stretch for my large chest. The color was also really nice, but the overall look is more understated. If you're looking for something with more of a punch, this isn't it, but if you're looking for something that is comfy, with sleeves, a nice color, and a decent length this is a great choice! Also, I am just under 5'5 in height and wear between a size 6 and size 8 dress.
