Love the print, not the fit.

This fabric is stunning - love the colors and the pattern. Unfortunately the fit of this dress was just all wrong. It was too big in the body but the top pulled strangely (I am not busty at all). It sort of looked like a sack. I really wanted to like this but it just didn't work for me.

Get the dress size to fit your chest.

This ended up being an interesting surprise. I read the previous reviews that complained about the baggy skirt and didn't expect to like this, but when I put it on I was pleasantly surprised by it. The colors are a gorgeous fuchsia and navy. The fabric is light and flows - perfect for a hot day (which it was not), and the top is perfectly fitted for this small D. The dress does have a lot of fabric, but it's made to be that way. It's the look and it's very comfortable. I liked the uniqueness of it. Be warned of static cling. I took mine out of the bag for a few days, then wiped the inside and my undergarments with a dry sheet. Did the trick. I can see this being beautiful as a maternity dress, as well.

Nice, Not Amazing

The dress is very lightweight, and flows nicely. Not great for windy days. I found the bust to be a bit tight and pull around the pleats a bit awkwardly. Then it was very loose in the hips. Enjoyed the color!

More spring than winter

Super lightweight material and silky maybe would work for someone in a warm climate this time of year but far too light weight for those of us with snow on the ground

Gorgeous

Beautiful dress, the fabric and cut were just so pretty. Wore with tights and boots, because winter. Might rent again in slightly warmer weather to pair with some nude pumps.

Loved it!

This is snug in the chest as others have noted- fortunately not an issue for me! I got all the compliments. The pattern is perfect, hard to tell if it's animal print or like blood cells which is right up my alley!

Great for baby bump

The material is not stretchy, but still fit great over my baby bump! It's thin fabric, and I wore it over leggings. Beautiful pattern!

Comfy dress for a girl with curves!

Super comfortable, a bit snug in the bust area if you have DD... contemplating buying! Flattering for anyone that a larger mid section like I do!

Not a great maternity option for third trimester.

Didn't fit very well as a maternity option for me in 3rd trimester, but would be cute on a taller person in late 2nd trimester. Material is pretty thin - works with tights but not very warm at all. Nice print and color.

Easy for work

Didn't have much shape to it but I loved the pattern. Very lightweight so it would be a good work dress for spring or summer.

Best print ever

As others have said, this dress is tight up top! I think it's tight in the upper back rather than in the chest, however. I chose my size by looking at reviews from people with the same bra size as me and it served me well. The fabric is vibrant and slightly shiny. It does not stretch at all. The fabric is thin but does not breathe so keep that in mind when renting for extreme temperature situations. The collar is super cute but did not want to lie flat and I found myself constantly adjusting it throughout the day. The overall shape and movement of this piece is beautiful, though. I might rent thin one again.

Intense color!

Loved this dress for a work event. The magenta is vibrant and looks great paired with navy. As others said, it was a bit tight in the chest for me (34D) but was more of an issue with the jacket on over it. It definitely has volume, but the length balances it out so it's not too poofy. Got lots of compliments and will definitely wear it again before I send it back!

Not bad

Cute dress. Not much shape, but comfortable. A bit snug in the top and really flowing for the rest of the dress. I paired it with a slim belt and boots for work.

Nice dress but hit or miss on the sizing

I liked this dress but the negative notes in other reviews are true too. Great color and pattern. Flares at a flattering point . But, a bit tight in the busy and can look a bit maternity.

Perfect dress for the office

This dress is perfect to wear around the office. It is a great length hitting me just above the knees. The color is vibrant! The only challenge is I am a 36 DDD bust so the dress was a little tight across the chest. I wore a black leather jacket over it, got a TON of compliments.

Unique pattern, comfortable fit

Took cue from other reviewers & ordered a size up. Fit great, despite my broad shoulders. Comfortable fit. Appropriate for a bus casual office. Dress hits mid-calf on shorter gals, but still wearable with flats.

Odd fit beautiful pattern

Rented this for work, it's such a beautiful pattern and light material. But the fit is really strange. It's small along shoulders and bust as other reviewers have noted. But huge everywhere else, almost a maternity fit? I probably wouldn't rent again because I don't want people to think I'm hiding a baby bump!

Pretty color, just okay fit.

I wore this to work. The color is more vibrant purple than I expected, which I liked. The fit was just okay on me. It fit me weird in my chest which made the overall fit unflattering.

massive

actually didn't end up wearing even though i love the pattern because it was massive. i actually went back to double check that i didn't order a maternity item. even if the smallest size i'm sure this wldve swamped me despite being a size 4/small normally. size down at least 2 sizes. that being said, the pattern is very pretty and it is super comfortable

Unflattering

The dress was like a potato sack....not as structured as it looks in the pictures. There is a zip closure under the armpit, but I could pull it on and off over my head without unzipping. The fabric feels very cheap, as well.

Just OK

I packed this dress to wear at a conference, and it served its purpose. It traveled well (didn't need pressing) and was comfortable. It looked okay on me until I started moving around. It just wouldn't stay put and kept riding up to where I had to keep pulling it down so it would sit right. It's a cute dress but maybe I think its the combination of fabric and construction that keeps it from sitting where it should.
