Colorful and comfortable

Runs very large. Size down. I wore it belted and it worked. But it's a great summer dress. Hit me below the knees and I'm 5'3 and wore with wedges.

Great for tall/no-curves

I sized down one and it fit perfect. Architectural, modern, edgy. Designed for tall/no-curves. High quality thin fabric, cotton/silk blend. Wore thin tank underneath for office as cut-outs in back area show underwear. Didn't detract from design.

Pretty but small in chest

I loved the fabric and most dresses by this brand but this dress was cut funny. It came with tag so never worn but the chest was tight and even the shoulders were cut small. Not comfortable at all.

Candy Striper!

Loved this dress. So many compliments. Did have to wear a size up cuz it was a little too tight at the back in my regular size but big everywhere else. Strange. Otherwise really wonderful. Wrinkles easily but love it! Would rent again.

In Love!!!

I want this dress so badly. It fits amazingly well and falls right around the rib cage so you don't look like you're wearing a potato sack. If it weren't so pricey I'd buy this. It's just gorgeous so I'll have to keep it for awhile.

Reviews were right

Fabric was of nice quality, but the pattern was too crazy for me. Fit seemed correct and it accommodated my 3rd trimester baby bump well, but it looked like a mumu in the front. The other comments about your bra being visible were true. The pockets were a nice surprise. I would be amazed if this made any woman look good!

Chic and comfortable

I love this silhouette from tome. Very comfortable and easy to wear. There are some cutouts in the back, but they're not revealing. The fabric was a little on the stiff and thick side for a summer dress, but still a great choice.

Very unique; I think I like it...

Runs large due to unique cut and fit; one size down was just right. Billowy in the front, but pockets and the waist band in the back save it from being dumpy. Still, I kept going back and forth about whether or not I liked it. Big cut outs under the arms so if you lift up your arms, you can see the side/back of your bra. Great print and breezy fabric. This one is fashion forward; I think wearing it with confidence is probably the biggest key to making it work.

Weird

This is bizarre. It fits poorly and has odd openings. If you have a large bust, size up but it is still going to look like a super fancy sheet.

Amazing cut and fit

This dress is so much fit. Although I was skeptical when it arrived. When I tried it on I was extremely and pleasantly surprised. Dress is both comfy and sexy.

Nice colors

Despite the look of the dress the waist is tight so I would stick to your size also I had to wear a bodysuit to cover the cut outs in the back which would have shown too much skin for where I was wearing it

I Wanted to Love This!

I really wanted to love this dress! The colors, the feel and pockets are all the things I love. I didn't realize that it cut outs when I originally reserved it but they aren't really noticeable. The dress didn't fit well around my chest area and I wonder if sizing up will make a difference. Probably best suited for someone less curvy

Loved it, before I tried it on.

I really loved everything about the dress before I tried it on. I am between at 12/14 and I went with a 14 because the dress is supposed to have a loose/casual fit to it - but boy was I way off, I should have gone with an 8/10. The cut outs are quite nice - but it was so baggy that I just looked like a sack of sad potatoes. I'm sure with the right size I would really like this dress.

Loved the color!

This piece got great with some room to spare, so it was very comfortable. It needs a little steaming to look nice though. Only complaint!

Ok, but not what I expected.

I liked the fabric and the flow of this dress. However, it had some open gaps in the back that I was not expecting. I don't recall seeing in the photos that there were two big openings below the arms and into the back of the dress. My bra line (and rolls there) are not part of my body I feel comfortable showing off. I tried to get a picture, basically the red thing showing is my sports bra. If you have a pretty bra and don't mind showing off your lower side area, then don't let this review sway you..

Size Down to Get a Satisfying Look!

I consistently wear a size 12 , however, I rented this dress in an 8 based on my experience with the Tome Royal Picasso Dress that is a similar cut. This turned out to be the correct choice even with my curvaceous bottom half. I ended up wearing the dress to work with black tights and a black camisole because the cut outs are not discrete. As with most of the items rented, this dress (or kimono as many called it) received a lot of compliments. It was comfortable and cool for a warm late spring day. It does wrinkle but I think the pattern distracts the eye away from them.

Beautiful fabric, odd fit on petite

I was so in love with the fabric that I wore it several times during the weekend. But it was rather large on my five foot frame (got a zero, usually 4-6), particularly in the sleeves. I would still rent again though.

Big gaps on your torso

This is an odd dress. What is not readily apparent from the photos is that there is a very large gap open under the arms from waistband to mid-upper arm and several inches wide so your bra (not strap, the whole bra, shows and the lovely toned skin on your side between the band of your bra and the waistband. The fabric is cute (but very wrinkled when it arrived) but the gaping opening on each side was a non-starter. I tried it with a cami underneath but so much of it shows that it still just looks odd. Returned unworn.

Oversized, stylish and fun

Fun dress that's stylish, sleek and flirty. Not exactly the sexiest silhouette but enjoyed wearing it! Weird random cut outs in the back so probably not the best for work.

Not a great look

Fits well, but was only flattering from the back or with arms raised. My husband said he tried to like it but it looked like a nightgown. Its a very specific look. Very cook but not very flattering.

Runs small in the chest - FYI!

So I wanted to like this, and I think if you are smaller than a D cup this might not be an issue, but I tried this in a 14 and an 18 and either way the chest was tight, of course the 18 looked almost comical b/c the arms and rest of it were huge but it was tight over my chest. I'm an hourglass, so this generally isnt a problem, but it wasnt even really my waist area, it was almost across my bust? Hard to explain, but I wanted it to be this flowy casual thing and my chest was kind of spilling out. Could not get it to work for me, and I love TOME stuff generally, so not sure what was up with this one dress.

The fabric is really beautiful.

The fit is very strange, small in the bust, but very large everywhere else. There are cut outs in the back and the fabric gathered in a pouch around my belly.

I didn't wear it. I have an hourglass figure and though it fit perfectly it looked shlumpy on me.

When I have lost more weight I will try renting this dress again. It fit well and was very comfortable it just didn't look right on me. It highlighted my size. I didn't realize it had cutout on the back but I would wear it with a camisole underneath.

Rent this dress!

I love, Love, LOVE this dress! It's comfortable, and cute--a winning combination for sure. I love the color and the material moves comfortably and easily. There are cut-outs in this dress that can easily be concealed by wearing a leotard under the dress. I'd remove the leotard for after-work wear. I love it so much and will definitely rent a similar dress.

Fun and fashion forward

Loved the look and fit of this dress. It was a bit tight in the chest area, but still looked great. Nice length and very breathable thru the arm and upper back holes. I would have ordered a larger size if I had time, but still loved the way it looked. Perfect for a last minute picnic and open theater show.

Great summer work dress, very on Trend with the vertical stripes

I didn't realize the back was open when i rented it, but it was so cute. The Kimono sleeve so comfy. I like the fact that it has waistband in back gives this very loose fitting dress some shape on. Would rent again or even purchase if price goes down more:)

Didn't actually wear after trying on!

I loved the look of this dress in pics, but there is some weirdness going on with the back and sides (other people have uploaded pics that show this)—suffice it to say, I was uncomfortable with the cutouts.

The Print is great

I love this dress. I had to pin the front closed a bit as I thought I was showing a bit too much for work (i'm rather busty). Otherwise I love this dress!
