I stood out in a sea of "been there done that" little black dresses, and was told that I was the best dressed at the party! Didn't want to return the dress!
Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Rented this for a class reunion party and I was not disappointed! This dress was as vibrant as the photo shown. The fit is meant to be flow-y, baggy-like but I felt that my bust and hips filled it out nicely. If you want a slimmer fit size down, but I think because the dress is designed to be loose, staying true to your size will work. It is not an A-line, so beware to the women with the "ample bottom", it does fit slim in the hips. Because of the colorful floral design on the front, I would describe this dress as fun and whimsical, but the open sleeve detail gives some "edge" to this dress, which I appreciated. It is not too short in my opinion...great for a 30-something mother of two... for I didn't want to look like I was trying to relive my teens. And as always my rental experience was flawless. The only reason why I'm not giving it 5 stars is because my particular dress had a lot of little snags in it, as if it has been worn and cleaned too many times. You could only see the snags if you looked closely and you couldn't see them at all in dim lighting (I was in a club). Again that was my particular rental, not saying they all would be that way.
