Fun and flirty
This dress stands out in all the right ways. The bright color was welcome among a sea of black, and the print is so fun. I was pretty afraid of the open back when I ordered this, but a backless bra from Victoria's Secret and a gushing review from a friend eased my worry. The material is nice and lightweight. I didn't want to send it back!

Perfect brunch dress!
I was so excited to wear this dress to my birthday brunch in Miami and it did not disappoint. As mentioned in other reviews, it is a BIT short, but I wouldn't let that deter you from ordering it. I'm somewhere between 5'8" and 5'9" and was comfortable in it and tend to shy away from super short stuff. It is backless, so no bra, but my chest is small enough and the pattern busy enough that I wasn't worried about not having one one. This is a really fun dress to accessorize and I got countless compliments. Great daytime dress!

Beautiful fabric, not the most flattering cut.
The fabric and pattern on this dress is absolutely gorgeous. However, the cut was not that flattering for a pear shaped body type - it made the bottom half of me look wider than it actually is. Additionally, the dress was rather short for me, and I didn't feel comfortable.

too short if you are over 5'9"
I unfortunately did not get to wear it because it was way too short. It is better for people under 5'9"

Fun dress with lots of personality.
In person, the color and design are amazing! The fabric feels great. It fit well, but i felt uncomfortable with how short it was. im pretty tall (5'9"). That was my only complaint. I loved how unique it was.

Lovely
I fell in love with this style and ordered the only size available for my event, which was a size 6 (I usually wear a 4), wishful thinking that tie back feature would work to my advantage in cinching at the waist. The dress was too big, but I would definitely rent it again in the proper size.

LOVE this dress - gorgeous print, fun skirt, very comfortable
This print looks great on and is really fun to wear. The top runs slightly small (so I wore the 4 instead of the 2). The backless design adds a fun touch/makes it seem slightly dressier. The skirt is fun and the dress is really comfortable. I plan on renting this again!

I rented this as my back-up, but my daughter wore it. It was a Concours D'Elegance at Amelia Is FL
It fit her just great, and was perfect for the event....casual elegance. She looked fab, and was comfortable

Awesome print!
I loved this dress. The print is so unusual and fun; the color is gorgeous (though yellower than in the photo). I found the fit a bit challenging for a larger bust, but it ended up looking great thanks to a minimizing, backless bra (which is, admittedly, super uncomfortable).

A great night at the Beyonce concert!
Wore this to see Beyonce in concert. I was inspired by Bey who wore the same Thakoon Edition print in Cuba earlier this year. The dress was def short in a size 2 (I'm 5'6") but the size 4 was too large up top for me since I have a small bust and I wasn't able to wear a bra with the dress due to the open back. I think had the top fit better I would've been more comfortable in the 4. But the 2 fit fine (albeit a bit short) and the dress looked great.

Unfortunately my dress showed up damaged and I was unable to wear it.
The material was very light weight, almost linen-y. The pattern is fun and funky just like in the photos. I think this is good for a day time wedding, but not dressy enough for a night event. Despite being damaged, I was able to try it on. I am 5'3" and have a long torso and the straps that run along the back were large on me. be aware of that! Other than that, great dress and wish I had a chance to wear. Customer service fully refunded + additional coupon, Very helpful and lots of communication.

Interesting pattern, fun and flirty
Everything was great about this dress, except my DD chest desperately needs a bra. I opted for a dress where I could wear a bra with it. If you're smaller in the chest, this is probably a great option for you!

Great Dress, Beautiful Color, Tons of Compliments
I rented this for a wedding and was worried when I was told the size 0 had been damaged as I'm consistently a size 0 and all the reviews said the dress fit true to size. I had the size 2 for a backup, and it actually ended up working great! I know there were reviews about the short length, but I thought that the size 2 length was perfect -- still short but not so short that I ever worried about potentially flashing anybody. I wore a NuBra and did tape down the straps to keep them from potentially falling off (they weren't falling off on their own but it helped keep the top in place). I would definitely rent this one again.

Cute and sexy
The material is light but double layered so nothing is see-through (important because you can't wear a bra with it). I'm 5'5" and the skirt felt a little too short. It's not a problem when standing, but def couldn't bend forward and got nervous everytime the wind blew. I suggest wearing booty shorts under it to feel safe. Otherwise, it's an awesome dress for a blazing hot summer day as the dress material lets you breath and is light. I wore it to a bridal shower and loved it.

Too Short
I wanted this dress to work so badly - the design and fit are cute and elegant at the same time with the low back. Unfortunately if you are over 5'7 and are not flat chested this dress is not for you. The dress was very short, too short for a wedding so might work for a cocktail party etc.

Unfortunately, way too short .
I loved this dress and was so excited to wear it to a wedding, but when I got it it was far too short to wear. With the flowy skirt, I was afraid it would not pass the wedding dancing test. The print is incredible in person, and the back is really nice. Wish I could have worn it!

Complimented by a stranger in Barnes & Noble!
I meant to wear this as an evening dress with heels but ended up spending a sunny Manhattan Sunday strolling around in it. Was so flattered by the attention I received for its cool design & great fit! The back is beautiful and a surprising twist. Beware it's a bit short! This dress goes great with brown leather accessories--wore it with a crossbody bag, flat sandals and sunglasses and felt like a moviestar. Recommend it 100%!

I loved the print and got a ton of compliments. It was perfect for a HOT summer wedding. If you're tall, I might not recommend. I'm 5'6" and it was a teensy bit on the short side. But otherwise the fit was perfect!

Too short :(
I really wish this dress would have worked but it was WAY TOO SHORT. Would have been inappropritae in just about any situation. If the weather was colder it would be cute and wearable with dark tights and black boots. Another issue I had was the lining was longer than the dress itself so the white skirt lining was showing at the bottom of my hem. This could have maybe been resolved by ironing the dress but I didn't bother since I wasn't going to wear it out.

Fun, flirty, and unique! LOVED!
Fit was pretty true to size. Will def need a nu bra if you don't feel comfortable going braless because there is no structure or piping through the bodice. Great length in the sense that it showed some leg but was still appropriate for a wedding. Also worked well in the sun and heat. LOVED the color (which I would call mustard) and unique, somewhat animal-like, print! A dress I would love to own!

Cute but very short
I should have paid attention more to a few other reviewers before getting this. It looks the same as in the photos, very cute. However, this dress is definitely not made for anyone tall! I can see this looking good on someone 5'6", but any taller, and it's more of a tunic. If only this had a couple more inches, it would have been great to wear on vacation.

Standout print for a summer wedding!
Loved, Loved, Loved this dress! I was worried about the low back because I need all the support I can get and usually shy away from dresses that don't allow me to wear a bra. I am so glad I gave this dress a chance. The print was unique, the color was fun and I got to wear something revealing for once! There's enough coverage on the sides to wear a stick on bra. The size 2 was slightly tighter so I opted to go with the 4 for comfort. I received tons of compliments and wish I could own this dress!

I wore this dress for my husband's 30th birthday. It was a fun dress to wear.
I was disappointed in the fact that you could see nearly a 1/2 inch of the lining peeking out from under this skirt on both dresses I was sent - this isn't something that you would think you would have to deal with with this designer or renting at this price. As other renters mentioned, this dress is pretty short - I am only 5 foot 3 inches so it hit me perfectly!

Perfect Spring print, great for a wedding, love the back!
Loved this dress. Size: I am usually a 4/6 in dresses (mostly due to how they fit my bust). Only the 6 was available to rent and it fit just right. The 4 would have been too small in the waist area (which isn't forgiving). Color: The color is great because it's so different and the fabric is very nice, textured. Bra situation: I am a 34D and I was able to get away with a sticky bra (not the chicken cutlet kind, the kind made from bra material on the front). Length: I am 5'4 and it hit me just past the end of my fingertips when my arms are down (might be a little short on really tall people).

Perfect for a springtime brunch wedding
This dress was great! It's comfortable, a good length (for short girls like me) and receives a ton of compliments. I bought a stick-on bra to wear with it, but I think you could get away with not wearing one in this. It's definitely a "dressing for girls" dress: it gets more attention from girlfriends than from men. But I'd rent it again in a heartbeat!

Really cute but unique print. Got a ton of compliments on the color and style.
Only disadvantage is that you can't wear a bra because of the open back but the fabric is thick enough that it wasn't a huge problem.

Great style, odd color for matching
I loved the open back on this and so did everyone at the rehearsal dinner. I wasn't a huge fan of the color mainly cause it was hard to match with shoes and accessories. The black isn't a jet black, it's more of a faded black and the yellow is pretty mustard-y. I have somewhat of a short torso so I had to keep sitting up very straight so the front wouldn't pooch out too much. This would do great on a lengthy torso. I still rocked it and got tons of compliments so all in all it gets 4 starts from me!
