Emperor Dress is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE! This is such an awesome dress, I kept my box for three months just so I didn't have to give it back. Very flattering fit, great print, can dress it up for events but also okay to wear to work (although there is a split in the skirt that goes to just above your knee, so perhaps a bit risque for some workplaces). The fit is loose and spacious but elegant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful flattering dress Loved the cut of this dress. Unfortunately the weather turned cold so I only got to wear it once. But it was really flattering and I felt great in it. Minor flaw, there seemed to be a number instances where the dress had previously been snagged and then the fabric stretched back to hide the pull. That said no one seemed to notice and I received lots of compliments when I wore it and it wouldn't deter me from renting it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and flattering Loved this dress for both everyday workwear and a more formal option! Very flattering and sits in just the right places. The material is soft and comfortable. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun dress for a cocktail party I rented this last month and it is one of my fav dresses. It ran very large in size when I rent this dress again I will get it two sizes smaller. Very lightweight and comfortable fabric. I didn't do up the bow at the top of the dress at the back which made the dress more of an "off the shoulders" look which was very flattering on my waistline. I received many compliments on how flattering the dress was

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could this be the perfect dress? Beautifully tailored, in a gorgeous olive and pale pink, this dress is just perfect. The V neck shows no cleavage and the dress moves beautifully. The fabric is very delicate, so needs care.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice dress but didn’t work for me Rented this for work but fabric very light and not suitable for MELBOURNE winter. Could not figure out how to ‘winterize’ Also found the fit not right for me - don’t think this style works with small boobs.
