After the bride opened gifts, several girls I did not know came up to me to tell me they had been waiting to tell me how much they liked my dress!
Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for my college friend's preppy Annapolis bridal shower and bar crawling afterwards. The dress was a fun day-to-night sundress that was super comfortable and easy to wear. It was also a cool, breezy option for being outside in the hot sun. I ordered an XS and a S, but ended up wearing the S. I felt the XS was a bit short for a semi-formal shower (I am 5'5" and wore with flat sandals). The S was also on the shorter side, but more appropriate. Basically, this dress is really easy to fit, because the shoulder strap and waist have adjustable drawstrings, so you can tighten the bust and waist and play with the blousing as needed.
I gave this dress 4 stars because while I was super happy with it, you have to be careful of the length. I would have probably preferred to wear the XS because it was a bit less baggy and blousey than the S on me, but again was just too short. While the small still looked great in person, it made me look large and shapeless in a few pictures.
