The color is gorgeous!

Beautiful color but runs large and the slit in the front is a bit low. Cute design and cut though!

Quality dress

The dress is very well made and the color is gorgeous in person. I especially like how the fabric is solid, drapery yet incredibly light. It fits a tad too long on me and I wish it could be less boxy around the waist. Also although the opening in the chest area makes the dress very unique and interesting, it is kind of revealing so I wouldn't wear it to formal occasions.

Beautiful color, generous cut

Generous cut, gorgeous emerald color, fits like a shift so size down if you're between sizes. Opening was a bit low in front even with 2 hooks to keep it closed there were small gaps so I work it with a black tank underneath. Asymmetrical hem adds an interesting touch. Comfortable and easy piece to wear to work or out to dinner. Got to wear it first, it came with the tag attached.

Pretty color

Definitely runs large. I wore a 2 (my normal size) and wore it with a belt to keep it from looking completely shapeless. The slit in the front is also bigger than in the pic, but the color is great.

I didn't end up wearing this dress. Very baggy. I probably should have gone down two sizes.

Very loose. I also didn't love the way the top laid on my chest.

Beautiful color and fabric, but runs big

I loved the idea of this dress. Unfortunately, the fit was too big on me and I think it's a dress that would look best fitted. The side ruffle is a little strange since it's more a high slit with an extra flap of fabric. For a tall woman, it felt like it might be too revealing for work. Fine when you're standing still, but not if the wind blew!

Didn't wear it!

I rented this for work but didn't end up wearing it. The style was too baggy and didn't do anything for my hour glass figure - would not recommend for curvy girls

Loved this dress!

I used the size chart from the designer's web site and the first size I chose fit perfectly. Nice fit and flare dress that made a warm outdoor event more comfortable. The keyhole detail and the split sides made this a perfect dress for a fun casual event!!

Blah- nothing special

Besides being a pretty color, this dress was nothing special. The material was thick and rough and the fit was large overall.

Cute in concept but runs very large

I wanted to love this and tried to convince myself that it could work with the right heel, but the length and the fit just didn't work for me.

I should have taken a picture of it on but the middle cut exposed more than I thought. I was thinking it would be a modest Joel and it was not. I usually love theory and was disappointed and didn't wear it

This dress was AMAZING. I got so many compliments. The color was perfect for an early fall wedding.

I am very full chested (36DDD), so I did leave the front snaps undone. Even so, it was not too revealing. I am typically a size 6/8 and I ended up going with the 6. It is a perfect length. The only complaint I do has is that the extra fabric on the side wasn't always aesthetically pleasing.

Pretty, flattering, and shows cleavage.

I got this to wear to work but it showed too much cleavage for work and I didn't have another occasion to wear it for. I felt like it was a flattering cut and liked the way it draped on me. Although it was relatively loose fitting, it didn't look boxy. If you're between sizing, I recommend sizing down.

Maybe more flattering on someone with a bigger bust

This dress material is a beautiful green color in a pretty heavy fabric. I really liked the flirty flippy skirt part, but I didnt wear it because the bodice just didnt do much to flatter me. I'm a curvy hourglass shape.Maybe if I had a bigger bust it would have looked better. I felt the arm holes were too big and on me were gappy.

Comfortable, classy work dress

I loved this dress. Originally rented in a 10, but sized down to 8 (and will likely rent again in a 6), so this dress runs very large (for reference, I'm usually a 10-12). Dress is a nice, sturdy material good for any season, and is knee length. Be aware that you will likely need a cami to make the neckline work appropriate, and the slit adds a nice flare to the dress but does not make it inappropriate at all.

Very flattering dress! & great emerald green color!

I am small chested so the slit at the top of the dress was still work appropriate. There is a weird slit one one of the sides of the dress but it lays so it doesn't open up when you are wearing it.

Standard work dress

This dress seemed to run a little big but that made it more comfortable while still being cute. Pros: the jewel tone green color is much richer in person; gorgeous. Loose fit made it great for any food centric events. Conservative. Cons: was a tad big, keyholes in front sometimes pulled open in an odd way. My bra showed in the arm holes, could be due to large boob size

Great dress - formal but still fun.

Beautiful color and fit! It cut in at the right places while still being forgiving in the tummy area. Only negative is the cute key-hole requires some creative bra wearing.

Too low cut for work attire

I rented this thinking it'd be great for work! The front cut at the chest is exceptionally low for work. I had to wear the dress in reverse which was a great idea because the dress looked much better that way. The hidden slit at the bottom of dress near knees was a nice touch but the dress was so large that I couldn't see the slit until I sat down. I wouldn't rent this again because of the fit on this pear shaped body. It was a beautiful color but too loose fitting for comfort.

The color is nice and the dress feels well made.

The neckline is pretty low and open for work and the fit was large, so I didn't end up wearing it.

Unfortunately, dress was a no-go

I didn't end up wearing this, I'm thinking I should've sized down. I thought it would be something I could wear to work but I most definitely could not wear a normal bra with this, probably due to my A cup. But the slit in the front came down low enough that a normal bra was not an option for me. And the dress just felt too big in general.

Not flattering

Gave it three stars because it was a quality fabric and color was really nice. However, it runs very large and does not look flattering at all. Weird slit on the side. Ultimately, I sent it back without wearing it.

Great color and cut.

I wore this for a work event and got so many compliments. The color was gorgeous and fit beautifully on my full figure. The keyhole neckline could have used a little tape to keep it in place, but otherwise loved it. Will definitely get again.

This was 1 of 3 dresses I ordered in my first unlimited shipment, rented to wear to work.

The fit of this dress was okay. Personally, I think it looked better in pictures than in person. I felt sort of frumpy in it. I could not get the extra fabric on the side to hang right, even after attempting to steam out the wrinkles. Also, I did not realize the slit in the chest was so low....not really work appropriate. However, the rest of the dress, style-wise, was too conservative for a night out or a date, in my opinion, so I was left wondering where I'd really be able to wear it. Decided to return it for something else.

Comfortable and flattering dress!

I rented this dress for a day at the races. The material was nice and hung well. I liked the length and the extra material on the hem at the side. The hook and eye closure on the neckline was broken, but it looked fine sitting open. I am quite busty, though, so this was a little more low cut than I am comfortable with, particularly for a Day time event. I appreciated the slightly longer hem and the fact that it was a looser shift dress to balance that out! I would definitely consider renting again. The green is much richer than in the pictures and I loved it.

Unflattering, not recommended for petite girls

I love theory, but this dress was unflattering all around. The color was really dark forest green, the length was too long and the fit was very loose. Whenever possible I wear petite sizes with Thory, but usually can also fit a regular size 2 as well. Not this dress!

I loved it belted, otherwise not so much

I love the color of this dress and it just looked so perfect for work with leopard printed shoes and a belt. It was a weird cut though when not belted. The slit is also shockingly high though. I am lucky work doesn't care as much about what I wear but just be warned. I would buy this for work if it wasn't so pricey.

I work in development and a colleague said, wear that dress when you ask for the big bucks!

The dress was great. The only issue was the peep hole opened. I am not large busted (36B/34C) but maybe the six would have been better for me, though the rest of the dress might have been big.

Bummed this didn't work out!

This dress is so pretty, however, the front has a slit at the neck that goes down way too low! Not sure what undergarment you could wear under here that wouldn't show.

Comfortable, but not very flattering

I rented this for work, but found it more casual than expected, especially because it is a bit baggy (I am very slim). Also, the material is a bit heavy for a sleeveless piece - or vice versa.

A little revealing

Love the fit, the color is a gorgeous inky green, and the fabric is great for fall and winter. The keyhole, though, is way revealing for the office. If I rent this again, I'd probably pair it with a long sleeve lace body suit or something similar. It would probably lay flat if you're an A or B cup, though!

Too low-cut

I was disappointed in this dress. Fabric and color were great, but the closure in front was very low cut. My bra was completely visible in the little opening with the front clasps, and it was way too low to wear to work.

Great for work, add a shirt under.

I loved this dress. It fit me slightly tighter than the model, which made the top gape so I added a camisole and it was perfect. Highly recommend. I am 5'6 about 135 pounds, hourglass figure.
