Chic and fun
This is a great looking dress in person. The fabric is structured and the fit of the dress has shape to it, without a lot of give. I'm small in the bust and tall and thin, and I can see where more buxom gals would not be comfortable in this dress. I disagree with the stylists notes to size down. I normally wear a size 6 and could have gotten away with it, but it would have been restrictive making for an uncomfortable night. The backup size 8 gave me the right amount of room where I needed it. If you are a lean figure, it's a great dress.

Great fit - I wore with pumps for a client meeting (didn't even need my blazer)
Dressed up or down this is a great dress. High neckline for work, thick fabric could be worn across seasons.

Had a "black & white" party to go to so this was perfect.
It fit great, very comfortable and not too short. It was really hot and humid the night of my event and this dress is a bit thick, but I would think it's fine as long as you're not on a patio in Florida in the middle of the summer.

I wore this for Thanksgiving. The fit was perfect and it was conservative enough to wear for a family or work event and yet still stylish.

Cute Pattern
The pattern of this dress was really cute. I'm usually between a 4 and 6 and glad I got the 6 as I think the 4 would have been too short/tight. I wore this dress to a part with black tights and short booties. My only complaint was that the dress looked like it had definitely been worn before and the fabric was slightly pilled and worn looking.

Effortless fun style
Plans changed, did not get to wear dress however plan to rent again in the future. Material was thick with no stretch, ran small overall. Size up and there should be no issues - definitely worth it, it is such a fun and versatile piece.

Not for big bust
The dress is beautiful. I am a 34 C and the dress was extremely tight on the bust. I wasn't able to wear the dress to the party. If it wasn't for the bust, the dress would have fit perfectly .

Just okay
Didn't love this dress. Tried the 8 and it was way small in the chest but the 10 was too big elsewhere. I wouldn't recommend this for girls with larger chests. Didn't love the fabric either as it looks like it's all pilled. I'd pick something else over this for sure next time.

Versatile dress for work or play
This dress could be dressed up for work or dressed down for a dinner/night out. The cap sleeves were great because you don't need a jacket/sweater to wear in the office. The fabric was very breathable and light, even in the summer. More of a sheath silhouette than appears in the picture.

Comfortable, flattering, fun but classic
Love the fabric and the design. The sleeves are a little small--I probably could have gone down a size except for the sleeves. But it still fit well--form fitting, but not snug. Might be a bit short for work, but I wore flats and a blazer and it was appropriate enough.

Beautiful dress but runs small
I love this dress. It was beautiful and well made. The problem is that there is no stretch. The bottom of the dress had no stretch or give and I couldn't get it down last my hips. I think most people would need to size up in this. I'm willing to try it again but would consider 2 sizes up. I salsa couldn't we are this for the event I intended to.

Versatile, flattering dress
I rented this dress for a girl's dinner/night out. I rented a 4 (my usual size) and 2. The 4 was was too big in the bust area for me (34A), so I ended up wearing the 2. Even though the waist was pretty snug, the fabric and cut was very flattering and hid my not so taught post baby belly very well. This dress is a blank canvas for fun accessories, I went with a yellow necklace and shoes. I received lots of compliments and would definitely rent this dress again!

Great casual dress
I ended up liking this dress much more than I expected to. The length is great for my height and the top accommodates a larger chest. There's very little to no stretch in the material which really didn't bother me bc it's not skin tight. The dress is cut really well, I'll probably hang onto this one for a little while!

Classic work dress
Tight across the bust. I'm busty, I have 3 theory shift dresses in a size 2 that I wear often and aren't constricting in the boobs. Since this was more fitted than those I ordered a size up (a 4). I could have used a 6. My boobs were flattened in it but I was wearing a buttoned suit coat over it so it wasn't obvious and didn't bother me. Lots of compliments. Super cute dress!

Cute dress.
I was bummed that the back-up size wasn't available as the 0 was just a little too small around the bust and a little short for my liking. I think the 2 would have been perfect! Sadly, I returned the dress without wearing it but it looked like it would have been a cute dress.

This dress is cute, runs true to size but is meant for someone who isn't curvy. It's warm, the fabric is thick for winter.

I wore this dress out to dinner for my birthday and it was super comfortable! The fabric is sturdy and high quality. It was a nice length...not too short. I'd definitely wear this again for a more casual night out.

Love the print!
Rented this dress for dinner with my parents. Runs a size big and recommend ordering a size down. I wore the 0 and this does not come in a 00 so belted it to cinch in the waist. Plenty of room in the hip/thigh area. Best for pear/hourglass shapes. Would be so cute on a curvier figure.

A classy & comfortable dress
Threw this in as a second style option, ended up wearing it instead because I loved it so much. Classy and comfortable, fit exactly as expected. Received tons of compliments and danced all night with no issues. The fabric is a bit thicker, so might not be best for summer events, but was fine for outdoor April wedding (in NC).

really into Ikat lately and the black & white makes it easy to put with anything else.
i felt like the dress ran a tad too small and was kind of strangling me. loved the heavy cotton fabric.

Great Fun Dress!
I have a small bust so this dress was perfect for me but for anyone who has a larger chest it might fit tight around the top. The stomach part was a bit looser then i had wanted it to be, so i put a yellow belt around it which gave it a bit more color. All in all it was a nice dress to wear to this birthday party. Wasn't to much just perfect!
