Gorgeous color but maybe size up

This dress is such a lovely rich green color with nice lines. I am generally between a 2 & 4 and have previously needed a 4 in this designer. Unfortunately I forgot that until I tried this one. Luckily I was able to zip but it was TIGHT in the waist. I'm not sure if I will end up wearing it for the event. But if you get he proper size it could be a great choice.

Gorgeous color!!

I sized up because LK dresses tend to run small. It was quite large in my hips, fit fine up top. I'm larger on the top than on the bottom. I would say this one runs true to size to large. The color is amazing. Soooooo many compliments. Wore it to a speaking engagement.

Hugged my waist perfectly and made me look tall and lean. Beautiful bright color. Thick fabric and well made.

Gorgeous color, traditional dress

The color of this dress is its biggest selling point. I listened to the other reviewers and sized up and that worked perfectly. This is a great work dress, traditionally cut, my only complaint is that the length is a touch longer than necessary. But this could definitely be a wardrobe staple.

Didn't like the fit

It runs large in the waist and the hips but small on the arms. It's a little too long. The color is great, very bright. I only wore it once, will send back as I didn't find it flattering on me.

Gorgeous Green

I wore this dress no fewer than six times while I had it… Including my formal headshot photo. The fit is modest and very comfortable. Plenty of compliments from women and men! The color is off the charts and I would highly recommend this and any LK Bennett rental.

Great color but size down!

I LOVE the color of this dress and the little side detail but it runs so big! I'm usually a 14 sometimes even a 16 and the 14 was too big. It didn't hug any curves and made me look frumpy. Size down! A 12 would've fit perfectly.

Slenderizing

I have a curvy figure and was worried this dress would make me look too curvy. It worked with my curves while looking chic and sophisticated and appropriate for a speaking event. Only issue I found was getting the invisible zipper up through the intersections of multiple layers of fabric at the waistband. It wasn't the fit, it was the fabric and can be a common issue in a lot of dresses that have this feature. I found it even more difficult with this desss.

Pass if you have a short torso

Loved the color on this. LK Bennett seems to run a little small, but fit is hard to tell because I have a short torso. The bust didn't fit super well because of this, but I still wore to work and didn't mind it for a day, but wouldn't purchase. All the extra material up top made it hard to pair with a jacket or sweater. A good rental but ladies with short torsos like me might look elsewhere. I still liked it and felt good!

Great in Green

Really loved this dress. Fit perfectly. The material is thick enough to hide any issues, but not heavy. I received at least a dozen compliments on the dress, which is in my higher range for RTR dresses. The color is a knockout.

Stunning silhouette, gorgeous color

Super flattering cut + high quality fabric made this one of my favorite rentals of all time! I wore this for an on camera interview and a public speaking engagement at a tech conference and the vibrant color really popped in video/ photos. There's just the right amount of stretch and strategically placed darting to make this surprisingly flattering.

Most beautiful green

The color of this dress is stunning and the cut is flattering. However, it hit me right at my shins and I'm 5'6 so a bit longer than i was expecting.

Color was great

I'm 5 foot 7 inches, weigh 157 lbs, and am busty. 34DD This fit almost perfectly. A bit tight on the bust area but over all nothing too uncomfortable. I got a ton of compliments on the color.

Much lower cut than seems in photo

I don't even have a large heat and this neck line was too deep for work. Long length so seems appropriate but v neck too deep for any office

Work lunch

This fits beautifully. The color is gorgeous. I am normally a 2, but glad I sized up to the 4 knowing LK Bennett runs a bit small. The 4 fit like a glove. The hemline is a bit long (hit at top of calf), which was not an issue for me, but be aware if you are petite.

It was a bit snug right around the waist and didn't have a lot of give, but the dress overall is very polished and great for work.
