Fun dress OK for shorter people but probably excellent for taller people

Because I'm short the dress fit more like a midi which was fine. The design of the dress was great, I loved the look of the cord. The way that the back would be open a tad would be better for a taller person so you could see it a little bit better- my boyfriend at first couldn't figure out if the dress was two pieces or one. It did run a little large and because I suspected that even with a no reviews I ordered a small which I was happy about. However with my bust size 34D it was a bit too tight in the very top of the bust to use the very wimpy snap for closure; instead I used my own safety pin as you can see in this photo I took while sitting. You could wear to work or weekend as the slit in front and openness of back were not exceedingly obvious. Loved the smooth cotton fabric. PSA: ladies please include your measurements on your reviews! There's no reason not to - no one's going to find you on the street and know what you weigh because you put it on a rent the runway review! Please put your measurements it doesn't help to say the size 4 fit me great if we don't know what your measurements were ! thanks y'all!

Cute and comfortable

I wore this dress on vacation in Austin, Texas. It was comfortable and easy to wear. The back is open, but not revealing and I was able to wear a regular bra with it.

Cute casual shirt dress

This is a super comfortable summery shirt dress, it's loose and airy without overwhelming my petite frame. There's a cropped/open back, but it isn't super noticeable, so I could get away with wearing it at work. I love the cut, it's very interesting yet classic at the same time. The rope belt detail is really nice. I found this fit true to size, but was a little baggy in the chest. This dress is great for large chested ladies.

Comfy, stylish.

Very comfortable and wearable. I probably wasn't the chicest mom at Disney- but I sure wasn't the cheesiest ;) I love this dress for everyday. You could easily dress it up for night with heels and accessories.

Cute, casual dress in late 3rd Trimester

I enjoyed wearing this dress late in my 3rd Trimester. The back is open, but is easily covered if you pull the band above your baby bump. Nice button closing the front, which could also transition for breastfeeding. The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is that there is a considerable split at the front of the dress and mine was a little ripped from previous use. All in all, cute dress and a great color!

Wore to work and a kids party

Kind of a dumpy dress--hard to imagine the waist being flattering on anyone. The top half was nice. It is the type of dress where you wonder if people just like it because it is weird enough that it must be designer, so it gets a pass. I can imagine wearing it again on a really, really hot day--it would be good for that.

Nice work dress

Had to tuck in the back pieces, looked much better and defined the waist. Got lots of compliments on the dress

cute dress!

love the color. vince usually runs large, this was no different. elastic waist was great. you can't really tell the back is open unless you really lean forward. the little bottom in the front pops all the time so i wore a sports bra and it worked out well. hit right below the knee. highly recommend for a getaway/wknd dress

I'm in love.

Love the cut, the back, the fabric, everything. It's also incredibly comfortable. Considering keeping it.

Light, comfortable and chic

Loved this dress. It's comfortable, casual and chic. Perfect for work or around town, or weekends. Easy to wear. The skirt is elastic in the back and there's an open space between it and the top, but it doesn't gap or show...It was slightly tight in the chest for a D cup...but not noticeable

Very comfortable feel but polished look.

I thought it fit great generous in the waist because of elastic but it doesn't look like your wearing elastic because of the drawstring. The length is great for work. Also the fabric is light and breathable, this was the perfect summer work look especially for day to night.

I wanted to love this...

The fit is great and true to size. I am typically a M, between 6-8. The cut of the dress is great and fun, but what really didn't work for me was the fabric and the rope belt. Just felt too much like a paper bag tied up with a string. It's a thick cotton/canvas material. I was hoping for an easy piece to wear everyday, but will be sending this back and exchanging for something else!

Crisp cotton makes this work-ready dress perfect for a hot summer day.

Proportions seem out of whack -- bodice tight across my chest but wide skirt swallowed my body below the waist. Rope belt added much-needed definition. Might better fit a woman with curvier hips.

Stylist Review!

I love this trendy dress by VINCE.! Running true to size with some stretch, I recommend wearing your true size for your primary size and going up for your back-up. This style is fitted throughout the midsection and roomy at the hips. It works for all cup sizes. You are able to wear a standard bra with this dress. At 5'4, the length hit tea length on me. A simple rope tie adds summer-ready charm to this smooth cotton-poplin dress finished with a slit, open back. Pair with cute sneakers to dress down and small earrings to complete your outfit!

Perfect for a sunny afternoon outside, or a day in office.

Great color and fit, lots of compliments. Easy to wear casually or dress up a bit with heels. Fun opening in the back.
