Beautiful dress!!

I am not familiar with DVF sizing and ordered my regular size. It runs much smaller that Tory Burch and Trina Turk but the dress is absolutely beautiful!

Amazingly unflattering

I should have known better- drop waists just don't work for me. But to compound the look, the bird pattern swoops under the lower belly - making it look more pronounced. Also, this length is tragic for petites.

Beautiful craftsmanship but not the most flattering

This dress was fun to rent and wear once. Very pretty but not flattering to my shape. It is very slim fitting from the hips and up so size up if you are chesty or hold weight in your midsection.

Beautiful for Day-to-Night

I rented this dress because I needed something to make the transition from daytime (business professional office) to night time (friend's birthday at a nice restaurant). This gorgeous DVF was perfect - my boyfriend could not stop raving about it :) I was worried at first bc of reading other reviews on the fit, but it turned out to be great on my small frame. I'm 5'1" so the length was more ankle than midi (see photo), but the waist hit me at the right spot and the pleats were gorgeous. The fabric is lightweight and perfect for a nice fall day. Those with larger chests may want to size up - the 0 fit my A-cup chest well.

Okay dress - looks better in pictures

The dress in unique but somehow just looked okay in person. The red and black pleats don't look as sophisticated unfortunately. The material is nice though!

Great transitional dress

Great dress, wore to work and then date night/Happy Hour. My only complaint was that the fabric seemed very thin. Was expecting higher quality

Gorgeous!

Such a beautiful print and so comfortable. I was worried about the length, as it hits mid-calf on me, but I love how it looked - people stopped me on the street to compliment the dress!

Unexpected details!

This dress looks so professional, but it's definitely not boring. The pleats reveal a pop of red and the bird print is so cute. I love this dress!

Work and my birthday celebrations

The fabric is very light and compliments your body. It's dark colored so it covers any imperfections.

Slightly weird fit in the waist but still very pretty

It ran a bit snug with a dropped waist but I wore it to work with a jean jacket over it and got tons of compliments. I would rent again, maybe go up one more size.

Feminine

The hem is weird, but I wore it anyway because the fabric, print and fit are so lovely. The hem was pressed but not hemmed, So it looked sloppy, as if the stitching had come out.

Not for girls with hips

The pattern is beautiful and the material is a beautiful draped silk. I was crossing my fingers that I would love it but after looking in the mirror I knew it wasn't for me. I have a smaller waist and hips and it was terribly unflattering. The placement of the pleating will accentuate the good and true pleats will flare out creating a strange and unflattering shape. I really didn't want to post this unflattering picture but thought I should to show what the dress looks like if you have hips!

This dress was too big for me

I am usually a consistent size 4 in DVF. This dress was way too big for me on top in size 4. The bodice was both way too long and too baggy. The fabric is very thin and silky. I thought this dress was silk jersey (like the wrap dresses) but it's not. Pretty dress but was way too big on me.

This is beautiful - I'm not sure i can return it.

It was way too tight up tight but I wore it with a blazer and got soooo many compliments - it looked amazing. Super fierce but conservative/appropriate. Love this dress.

Awkward size for petite person

I thought the pattern was beautiful but the length is not good at all for a petite person. I hitched the skirt part up a bit to try to make it shorter. The torso was too long, it hugged the wrong bits. Would recommend for tall women.

Easy, lightweight, and fun

Wore this to my wedding rehearsal dinner. I kept my fingers crossed for a month hoping that it would be available, and thankfully it was. The dress was very delicate and effortless. The only drawback is that the pleats were wrinkled, but the skirt is so flowy that you'll never notice.

Perfect for fall work trip to New Orleans. Could have easily pulled it off in cooler weather too.

Loved the length and the pleats. Very flattering overall and did a great job minimizing the belly that I still have from 2 kids. I love this pattern and could easily be dressed up or down. Was a little longer than mid-shin on me because of my height, but wasn't too long or overwhelming for my size. Great dress!

Get ready to twirl!

Great fit! The fabric is alot thinner then I thought it would be, but sooo comfortable. Everyone at the office wanted me to twirl because of the fun pattern. Would definitely recommend renting.

Chose not to wear

I wanted to love this, the fabric was a silk chiffon and I think I imagined it would be knit. The reason I didn't like it was that in winter the fabric had too much static and was very clingy. The pleats with the red showing would have been lovely except that they are sewn down to the lower hip and then are released so on me it created a weird "hippy" look that was unflattering. I would have preferred if they weren't sewn down from the waist to low hip. This might look lovely in the summer and on someone else with narrower hips!

The material is too thin for winter.

The fit would be best for someone with less curves on top.
