Love love love this dress!

I was excited to rent this and I wasn't disappointed! I rented it for Easter brunch and will definitely be renting it again for a graduation party. Fits true to size, only con is that the straps will slip down sometimes but nothing unmanageable.

Great black dress + some

Wore this to a black dress requested event and it was great. I will say that the straps were a bit long and would fall of my shoulder

Cool and Comfy

Fit was flowy and loose. Pros: Easy to wear, comfortable, cool Cons: Shoulder strap kept falling off I think if I rented it again I would rent the next size down.

Pretty dress, but runs small

Really pretty dress, but definitely runs small! Best for a smaller chest. The straps are long and wouldn't stay up. Wish this would have worked out

Beautiful Embroidery

Great for someone who is a bit taller. It paired really nicely with a black choker and black flats with a strap. Bit of a 70s vibe.

Perfect dress except top part

Pros Amazing dress Super cute Light so perfect for warm weather Lose around belly and hips so it didn't feel tight at all Love love love Cons The ONLY down fall is... The band at the top is so tight. I got this in a size 4 (I run between 4 and 6) The body part fit perfect and I probably could have gone down a size. The band at the top was SO TIGHT and I have 34b boobs. Forget about any boobs bigger then this. The straps are a bit lose too.

Stylist Review

I was not the biggest fan of the style of this dress, but I am so happy that I stepped outside of my comfort zone. The dress is really comfortable and roomy. The only snug part of the dress is the top band. If you are busty, I would suggest sizing up for your back up size. A strapless bra will be best with this dress.

Great summer dress!

This dress fit very comfortably! There was a seem on the slip of the dress that cut right across the hips (Not tight just noticeable) so I did pull the dress up a little when I sat down. Also, the straps were too long and kept falling off my shoulders. I gave up and just tucked them in and wore it as a strapless dress! So much better!

Tight at the top

I loved this dress. Only thing you need to know about the fit is that it is tight through the top band. Would only really suggest it for someone who has a narrow frame, because anything larger than an A or B cup would have to size up, which might make it too boxy in the body. That being said, favorite dress ive rented.

Another beautiful Vilshenko dress!

This was sent to me from my backup list in place of the dress I was supposed to get. I'm honestly so glad it was...PERFECT for a Nashville wedding. The band at the very top was a little tight, so I wore it without a bra and it worked just fine.

Comfy and flowy dress

This dress was super comfortable and high end. The embroidery is beautiful and the fabric feels luxurious. Can be dresses down with a denim jacket and sandals or dressed up for a formal event. I'm not sure if the tiered shape is the most flattering for everyone, and it definitely runs small so size up. I'm normally a 6, sometimes 8, and the 10 was even a bit snug. Like others said, the straps kept falling down, which is a little bit annoying.

Comfortable dress, straps too long.

Straps are a bit long and tucking didn't look great, but otherwise this was a great dress! Very comfortable.

Well made but runs super small

Loved how the dress flowed but even the 12 was super tight on my chest.

Felt great in this

Wore it to two dinners and a brunch. Could be dressed up for a more formal occasion. Really didn't want to send this back. I am normally a 4 or 6 and sized up in this thanks to reviews (10R-though I believe this is European sizing).

I work this for a themed-house party myself and my husband were hosting.

the top band is a little tight on my chest, so I had to move it higher up on me, which made the straps slide off occasionally. However, I got a lot of compliments and it was perfect for hosting at home. I wore some low heels and a long necklace and it was perfect.

I wore this dress for our family photos! It was gorgeous on and in the pictures!

Great fit- although a tad tight on my back (I'm athletic so that is normal though!)

Perfect for Thanksgiving Dinner!

This dress is so pretty! The embroidered flowers give it that extra something. The only bad thing is the top is tight. I'm a B cup and even I had trouble zipping it up all the way. I normally wear a 2 or 4.

Love this dress- but size up!

I love this dress! Based on the pictures, I was worried it would have a heavy material and the layers would not be flattering on my petite frame. The material is actually super lightweight and flowy. I would definitely recommend sizing up- I'm a size 0 and I couldn't get the zipper totally closed at the top. Will definitely be re-renting with the correct size!

Gorgeous tiered dress

This was one of my favorite rentals! The fabric is beautiful, embroidery gorgeous and I received a lot of compliments. The only issue was that the straps kept sliding down but otherwise was comfortable to wear.

Couldn't get this over my head!

Quality of fabric is definitely nice but the construction of this frock seems seriously flawed. I normally wear a 4 or 6 and ordered an 8. No way it was wearable.

Great dress

I received tons of compliments on this dress at a birthday party! I did order up a size based on other reviews, and I'm glad I did. I'm 5'7, 120 lbs. The dress was tight across the top. I love the embroidery and the tiers.

Dressy bohemian comfort

This dress runs several sizes too small. I am a true size 8 with a smaller upper body, and the size 14R was perfect so that the top band was not too tight and causing the straps fall down. They fell down a bit, but not too bothersome. The construction of the dress is interesting. You have to put it on over your head, and the hip area is a bit tight under the ruffles. This dress is really nice. Honestly, I passed on wearing it a few times because it was just too nice for casual events. I ended up wearing it on the weekend to visit the botanic gardens and to church and brunch on a Sunday.
