I felt beautiful in the Dress!

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I have been wearing a size 18 for so many years. Last year I started exercising and decided to order the 16 and 18 in case the 18 was a little too big. It turned out that I needed a size 14 which was fabulous. I called up and spoke with a rep, she was wonderful. Sent me out the size 14 for overnight delivery on a Saturday.

This is a beautiful navy dress, but was too boxy a fit to be flattering on my hourglass figure.

I was able to both look classy and boogie in this wonderful dress!

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress fit very well- the only two cons were the height, since it only hit above the knee and I wanted it slightly longer. However, I am about 5'11, so this is probably won't be an issue for most. The only other issue was the sleeves, which periodically caught onto the decorations of the dress and needed to be pulled off. Besides that, a total dream, with a bundle of compliments on the side.

Gorgeous dress! Received in perfect condition. The navy sequins give just the right amount of sparkle and the sheer sleeves made the dress oh so elegant. Runs slightly large and probably could have worn the next size down. I would definitely rent this one again!

Very pretty navy blue color, lovely sequins in a floral pattern. Sleeves were a little scratchy and would sometimes catch on the dress but the flattering coverage they provided was worth the inconvenience.

I rented this dress at the last minute with very few available options. I was nervous that it would look matronly from previous reviews but it wasn't. Once i jazzed it up with the earrings and bracelet I felt age appropriate. I also worried how my large arms would fit but they were fine. I do wish it could of been taken in at the waist a little bit I enjoyed my look for the black tie event I attended.

Beautiful, but runs a bit large.

Size worn: NONE

Runs big, so it looked sloppy on me. This was a replacement/overnight dress, so it wasn't my first pick. I felt matronly & it was awkwardly baggy. The dress itself is quite lovely, but wasn't for me.

Great Customer Service

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I had ordered a completely different dress for a wedding the next day but that dress was too large. I had received it at 7:30 p.m. on Friday night, so the really helpful Stylist got busy ordering this new dress for me. I didn't take time to look at any of the descriptions, so based on the picture, I was expecting the dress to be black. It's navy, which was fine, just not what was expected. It was comfortable, yet elegant. I didn't give this dress five stars because one of the hanger straps was broken, so it kept falling off of the hanger.

This was a replacement dress and it was very nice. The sequins kept getting stuck (others mentioned it and it was frustrating enough that i felt i should have paid more attention). I got a lot of compliments

Great Shimmery Number!

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This is my first rental and I am extremely happy with it! I rented it for a black tie wedding. I normally wear a 16 but read a few reviews that mentioned it ran a little a big and I found that to be true. The 14W zipped right up, no problem and was a little loose, but not noticeably oversized. Totally comfortable. I was afraid that the sleeves would be itchy but that wasn't the case. At 5'1" I have to shorten the hem on just about every dress. This dress came down enough to cover my knees, but I slipped on a pair of 2" heels and it looked fine. I forgot to take pictures but here are my measurements for reference: Measurements: Bra: 42D Chest: 46" Waist: 46" Hips: 48"

I enjoyed wearing this dress. Comfortable and classic style. The midnight blue color is stunning!

Size worn: 16W

The sequins have a matte finish, so you get more shimmer instead of sparkle, which is what I wanted. I ordered the 16w and 18w and wore the 16 and was very comfortable. Dress was in good condition and easy to return. I will be a returning customer.

This is the only dress out of the three that I rented that fit me properly.

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I rented three different dresses for a special weekend to celebrate my 40th birthday. I intended to wear two of the dresses but unfortunately, neither of those fit well enough. This was the only dress out of the three that fit. It was my least favorite of the three because as others have pointed out, it's somewhat matronly like a mother of the bride type of dress. The dress itself was in good shape and it fit so I can't really blame this dress for my disappointment in the fit of the other two dresses.

Dress fit great - went with the smaller size; loved the navy - great for the Holiday party; the sequins would occasionally catch some of the lace on the sleeves which is the only reason the dress got 4 stars; loved that the arms were "covered".

I ordered a 14W and the 16W as back up unfortunately the 14 was not available and the 16W was to big

Well made and heavy material. Looked very pretty but it was too big in the wrong places so I decided to wear one of the back up dresses the stylist sent to me as a courtesy. I was very happy and impressed that she went out of her way to send the additional dresses. Awesome customer service. I chose one of her recommendations and it fit very well. She got 5 stars from me just for her wonderful service.

The back of the dress was too big and it stuck out. The dress kept shifting everytime I danced.

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The back of the dress stuck out, it was just too big and ill fitting. Everytime I danced or moved around a lot during the evening, the dress would shift so the zipper was working it's way toward the front of the dress! My girlfriend had to help turn the dress around for me in the ladies room and my husband kept trying to shift it back into midline evertime we stopped dancing!. This made it uncomfortable the whole evening.

Very pretty, fully of sequins, maybe a little too old for a twenty-something

Size worn: 16W
Rented for: Wedding
Fit ran a little large. I wore the smaller of my two sizes and didn't even need to unzip to get the dress on, but it looked beautiful. Not so many compliments, but no one told my in looked like an old hag or anything either -- went with the flow of a wedding. Hem line is a little long, just below the knee, and there is nothing cutting edge about the neckline. A classy, conservative look. If I wore it again I would hem it.

Planned to wear this for my anniversary dinner...

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Date
This dress, while lovely in person (and navy, not black like it looks on the website), is not a short girl's friend. I'm 5'1", and it fell far enough below my knees to make me look shorter and a bit stumpy, which made me look heavier than I am. Also, I feel it runs a bit big, as there was quite a bit of extra room in the midsection, which never happens to me, and the sleeves were a bit loose. Probably ideal for someone 5'5" and taller

I received lots of compliments on this dress. It's a little flashy, which was fine for the crowded, nighttime cocktail party I attended, but I would have felt out of place if it was a brightly lit work party or something similar.

Comfortable and elegant.

Size worn: 14W
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress has simple construction making it easy to wear. It had a little stretch so it was easy to sit and cut a rug on the dance floor. Great length and color. The Navy color was gorgeous but it didn't complicate the shoe selection. Ultimately found a dark gray that worked but black stood out. Nude was another good option that I tried.

Great fitting. Beautiful dress with light shimmer.

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I normally wear size 18W; however, based on other reviews, I also ordered one size down, 16W. The size 18W dress fit well, but it looked unshapely on my body type. Thankfully, this was resolved by wearing 16W. Many compliments all night.

Stylist Review!

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This was a pretty great style! The color is, actually navy, not black. But it is a great substitute for a black dress. The sequins are a lot of fun and not overwhelming. The length is great and the fabric has some stretch to it. It's very easy to move around and would be great for a wedding. It wouldn't hinder your ability to dance through the night! The lace is very comfortable as well!

The dress was a little roomy in the waist but was a perfect fit in the hip area. (I have a little bigger booty than average.) Tons of compliments all night. It was not scratchy at ll as some sequin dresses tend to be.
