Great for an evening out

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small

This dress was the perfect cocktail dress for a date night I had. I definitely think it tends to run on the smaller side. If you're like me and self conscious of your stomach, you might want to reconsider this dress...it shows everything, despite the ruching. It is very form fitting, the beading is beautiful. My only complaint about this dress is the back. It kept bunching up after I had zipped it, which made it look like it didn't fit properly in the back.

this dress looks great! i have an hourglass figure and it was very flattering. even if you don't have a perfectly flat stomach, the rouching (spelling?) helps a lot.. it's pretty form fitting --- i got two sizes and wore the larger, you may want to consider doing the same. overall, highly recommended. as mentioned in the title of this review, i got a ton of compliments on the dress and made my city's party pages.

Good Rental

This is a great dress to rent because its stretchy and will conform to your body. Both sizes I ordered fit, it was just a matter of how much of the underneath layer shows through - the larger size looked more "black" and the smaller size looked more "bi-color". Anyway, the rushing is flattering and its long enough to be classy, not trashy :) Enjoy!

Sexy and Snug

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is a real showstopper! The surprising thing is that it is actually really comfortable. I didn't even need spanx. I did however use Hollywood tape to pull up the lining. It hangs down a bit longer than the outer layer. Be warned, if you have a large chest, you should go up a size. The dress is strapless so it has to the snug to stay up. I am a pretty standard 8, but the 10 fit like a glove. The routing is very flattering. I paired it with the Badgley Mischka showstopper earrings. Dynamite!

I rented this dress as a back up. I tried it on and could not zip the back up. It definitely runs small as I'm usually a 4 and this in a 6 was way to tight.

It's so hard for me to find the PERFECT dress, and I really believe this one was it! It was a little bit tighter than I had expected, but it did not budge at all! We did a TON of dancing and never once was I worried about the dress falling down. I got nothing but compliments on it, and it made me feel great!

Too small :-(

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I rented three dresses in a 6, and this was the only one that didn't fit. Not only did it not fit, it seemed two sizes too small. The other thing is that my hips are wider, and that's usually my fit issue, but I couldn't zip this up past my waist (my chest is not large). Size up! A gorgeous dress otherwise.

Wedding Rental

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was beautiful and I got a ton of compliments on it. It really emphasizes a small waist and hugs the hips perfectly. They only problem is that I am very busty and the strapless top didn't stay up all that well, even with a bustier on under it. I would recommend this for girls with C cup or lower. It also shows every bump, so if you don't have the flattest tummy I'd suggest Spanx.

This dress is beautiful and I loved it! I'm 5'4" and it was a little longer on me than I was hoping, but I still loved it. The only thing I'll mention is that the dress is very heavy. It's very well made but there is a lot of fabric and I was surprised at the weight of the dress.

I actually was not able to wear the dress. The lining underneath the chiffon is silver and I am soooo pale that on me it gave the effect of me being naked with just a chiffon covering. Even in the picture of the model if you know to look for that you can even see the effect on her. Beautiful dress, great material, well made, fit like a glove, great support. I just REALLY REALLY wish I could have worn it!! On all tanner women this dress will be gorgeous, but the paler ones will need to pass on it.

I didn't wear this dress because the zipper did not lay flat enough against my back so I wasn't a fan, however, luckily I also ordered another dress at the same time. My advice, if you have a chance to order a backup for $25, it is well worth it!!

I received so many compliments when I wore this dress. The details at the top of the bust were gorgeous and I loved the metallic under-layer. Material was very substantial and slimming. I have a large bust (34G) and I had to go for the larger of the 2 sizes because of it. Definitely a great dress for an hourglass shape.

I am in between a size 8 and 10. Size 10 wasn't available. The 8 fit but hugged every curve and was really tight...i have a big butt and wider hips. I am 5'8 and i loved the length. I didnt end up wearing this bc i fell in love with my back up dress. It was much more comfortable and flattering. The best thing i did when deciding between the 2 was taking a pic in each. when a flash hits this dress, it looks completely different. i think if i would have got the 10, it would have been a winner. its hot!

Nice dress, but nothing to write home about.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I'm usually a size four, but I had to go up a size b/c I thought it ran small in the waist, hip, thigh area. The six fit much better overall, but then was roomy up top (I'm a 34B). Overall, this dress did the job, but it's not my favorite. Also, the dress was a little worn out... the ruching was starting to come a little loose.

This dress is beautiful and loved the way it hugged my body. The only bad thing I can say about the dress is that it runs small. I had a hard time with the zipper and getting it to close. I am more on the busty side so that could be a factor to why I had a hard time zipping the dress. but once I got it on it looked amazing. I got so many compliments on it. Gorgeous dress!!

cute, but not on me

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I'm normally a 10/12, so I got the 12 just to be safe. While the material was VERY stretchy, the zipper was impossible to zip (even to unzip when trying to on). Once I put it on and began to attempt the zipping process I wasn't thrilled with the way the black mesh sat -it almost looked like you could see through the nude material underneath to my 'black panties' but it was really just the way the mesh overlay sat. With the warmer weather and the activities planned for my friend's bachelorette, It just wasn't the dress for me and I ended up wearing the second dress I ordered. I'd recommend this to someone with more of a straighter, athletic build.

Love going to the store to try on the dresses. Also perfect to find last minute accessories!

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Formal Affair
I'm very hourglass so the stretch in this dress was fantastic and super flattering. I'm pretty busty, so finding a good fit is sometimes difficult...but again the stretch in the dress made it fit perfectly (without feeling smashed or overflowing). It's not very structured, so I was worried about eating/drinking too much...but the ruching and the shiny lining hide the imperfections.
