Wore it to a gala.

I wore a size 18 gown in a bridesmaid dress in the Spring & have gained weight since then, so I ordered an 18w & a 16w. The dresses were huge on me. I wore the 16w AND had to safety pin the dress in multiple places (which wasn't easy with all the sequins). The fit is very different from the pictures, especially on my thighs it was very large and made me feel a little matronly. Overall it's a beautiful & classy dress, I just wish I ordered a smaller size.

The dress was perfect for a NYE party!

The dress is pretty, sparkly and comfortable! However, it was scratchy under the arms where the arm met the sequins.

So comfy!

The fit was great, I probably could've gone one size down and still have been comfortable I usually wear between a 18-20 but I got nervous with my hips. The dress was so comfortable for a charity event and I danced all night! Paired it with navy tights and wedges. Lots of compliments all night!

I looked fierce as hell

This dress was great and I got so many compliments! I could have gone a size down, but the shape of the dress was still really nice. The color is true and the quality is great. Warning: If you like to get crazy on the dance floor, the sequins may rip up your arms as they did mine, but I powered through it!

Stunning dress

I'm 5'7 usually 14-16. Rented the 14w and it was fantastic. Maybe a teeny bit roomy but I was comfortable all night long at a formal business/charity event with the upper crust of Manhattan society. GOT A TON of compliments. Someone stopped me to say the back was stunning. !! Only downside, some threads here and there, but only I noticed. Fabulous dress.

Nice details

This was not a main choice, I had to select backups because the original dress could not be shipped. This dress is really pretty & comfortable. However, it was a little too big and not really what I was looking for for the event I was attending. I will consider this for future events though.

Very cute

Definitely runs large, I am normally a size 16, and even the size 14 was too big. The lining was comfortable. I am 5'7" and I can't bend over in this dress, so it's definitely short, but comfortable to sit in. Over all a cute dress

Don't rent if you're a true 14 or pear shaped

I am usually a 14 in this style of dresses so it was a little bit of a crap shoot trying the 14W. It was HUGE on top and too big on the bottom. I am very much pear shaped and the 14W was practically falling off my shoulders. Also my bust isn't that big so I just looked like a chubby little girl trying on a woman's dress. It's a beautiful dress and I love this designer because she's true to size.

Great fit, sequins do itch after a while.

Gatsby themed bachelorette success!

Slightly less forgiving in the midsection than I would have hoped and irritating under the arms but so stunning! Got lots of compliments and fit the theme perfectly!

Fits large! I would recommend sizing down if you're in between sizes.

So many compliments!

I wore this to a black-tie wedding in Beverly Hills and never felt better! It fit perfectly, even a little too big, which was great to dance in. I assumed the sequins would rub on the underside of my arms, but they didn't which was a great surprise! I would wear this again in a heartbeat! Perfect!!

Compliments all night long

This was a great dance for a work fundraiser. It has some stretch so you can move and dance in it. The middle row of sequins are not as light as in the picture. It does run a little large so I'd size down next time. The only con with the dress is the sequins under the armpit area are very irritating. Over all, I would rent this again for another event.

6 months pregnant

I had to choose among 3 dress styles for a formal work event at 6 months pregnant. I liked every dress but didn't choose this one because the sequins were very itchy in my arms. Also, the sequins made the material bunch up. Liked how it looked but I didn't choose this one, but still wanted to show you what it looks like on someone pregnant.

Great wedding and lots of compliments!

The fit was perfect. Both the 14W and the 16W fit, I ended up going with the 14W because it gave me a better shape. The dress is fully lined, so the sequins don't bother you on the underside, but I agree with they others, they are a little annoying under the arm. By then end, I was ready to get it off. Other than that it was perfect!

So Many Compliments!

I wore this dress to a 50th birthday party in Las Vegas. It had the right amount of sparkle without shouting "look at me"! It was also comfortable- not binding anywhere, which for a size 14 girl means a lot. Easy to accessorize with black shoes and bag. I cannot Remember the last time I had so many compliments and felt so beautiful!

Very comfortable.

Form fitting, I wore the size up because I wanted a little bit of wiggle room. The lining is heavy, good to wear in winter.

Sparkly comfort

It is a nice and wasy party dress. You are the party with the shimmer and sparkle in the blue and black number. It has a nice comfortable stretch cottom lining. Hence not Scratchy or itchy like other sequin dresses. Prefect for a dun little night out.

Cute dress, just not for my body type.

This dress was a little too big for me. It was very boxy and didn't give me much of a shape. This was an alternate dress and I did not wear it to the event. It may have looked better if I had gone down a size. If you are plus size and need waist accents, I do not recommend this dress.

I felt beautiful. Received tons of compliments. This was not my first choice, but I loved it.

The 14 was not available. Based on reviews, I took a chance with the 16. Loved wearing a regular bra and undergarments. I'm 5'1 and the length looked great on me with 3" heels.

Shimmer and Shine

Another winner but definitely order a size down. It was nice to have a decent amount of room and not look like you're wearing a trash bag though. Would consider ordering again. #rtr #shimmerandshine #chairmanandpresidentsaward

Looks great but is heavy and scratches!

The dress looked great and fit well. It was definitely on the heavy side so maybe not the best choice for a summer event. Also, the dress left some pretty serious scratches on my arms only from walking and moving my arms.

Pretty dress in person

I decided not to wear this dress to the wedding reception because the night was so hot and I knew that the sequins would irritate my skin around my arms. It's a really pretty dress when you see it in person.

Pretty dress- painful sleeves

I thought this dress was ok. It didn't look as special in person as it does in pictures. The arms were extremely uncomfortable/painful. My underarms were raw after my event. All in all this was an okay look but nothing overly special.

This dress was my 2nd pick dress and I am so glad I picked this one. I loved how it fit and how I looked in it. It was mostly very comfortable except for the sequins that rubbed under my arms. I received tons of compliments - even from strangers - about how much they loved my dress. I would definitely rent this dress again! I probably could have wore an 18 but the 20 fit well and was so comfy!

Wouldn't rent this one again.

The stretchiness made it comfortable and easy-to-wear no matter your shape/figure, which was great, but I wouldn't rent this again because the sequins were really annoying (and painful by the end of the night!) under the arms.

I wanted to love it, but alas...

If you're a true 14 you'll find this dress to be cut really big. also if you have small-ish thighs/legs, the dress may look droopy around the hem like it did on me. The style and color are perfect but I couldn't make the dress work. I really wanted to wear this dress as it was my first choice but thankfully I had a backup style.
