Backup dress
I didn't pick this dress but it was sent to me as a replacement. The top did not stay up at all and I wasn't sent the straps that some people show pictured. The wrap skirt also ended up showing much more leg than pictured. The dress is cute though - nice material, like the exposed zipper. Maybe the above critiques wouldn't be an issue with a different body shape?

Nice dress, not so nice fit...
In the photo, the dress looks like it has a sheen to it, which I liked. But when it arrived, the material wasn't shiny and rather rough. I got a 0 and a 2 as back up and neither was a good fit; the 0 was too loose and long. I returned it the same day. It's a shame because the dress was cute, it just wasn't for me.

The dress was fantastic! It arrived in perfect time for my event
The top seemed to run a little larger than I expected, but the waist and everything else fit perfect. The garment tape they included with the dress did not work well for holding it up.

GREAT DRESS SO MANY COMPLIMENTS.
It has a very unusual cut which separates it from the traditional strapless cocktail dress, When added with the small dots on blue fabric. it is quite a special dress. def worth a try!!

No one will have a dress like this!
The dress ran a little big, but I still made it work. This dress has a retro flare, that so many of us girls love.

Unique and super flattering
Had to be careful sitting down since the front slip makes it tricky!

I had so much fun ringing in 2012 and the two other girls at the party gushed over this dress...my husband enjoyed it very much too ;-)
I rented this on a last minute whim to wear on NYE. I was probably between the 4 and the 6, but I chose to wear the 4 because the 6 was too big in the chest and looked kind of silly. I also chose to wear the spaghetti straps that came with it because as other reviewers have said, you can't really wear a bra with this, so the straps hold the girls up :-) I had a lot of fun wearing this...I was just at a low key NYE thing with 5 of my friends (we drank, cooked, and played games) but it was great to have something like this to wear! If I had had more time to plan, I would have accessorized with different shoes, but like I said, this was a last minute rental!

This dress is totally adorable – it’s just in dire need of some stretch, of which there is absolutely zero. The 4 fit me absolutely perfectly with the exception of the bust, where I could barely get it zipped and my chest was literally popping out with the bra on (and the bra is SO necessary). Basically, I couldn’t breathe. So I had to go with the backup size of a 6, which was OK, but was really too big and baggy on the bottom/hip area – the bust on the 6 was better, but you really need a bra to give it something to grab on to in order at all keep the dress up. Basically, completely adorable dress, but with a little bit of stretch to give it some cling, it would be perfect. I wanted desperately to wear it strapless, but just couldn’t, unless I wanted to expose an entire wedding. I had read Temperley’s sizing was a little off before ordering, so I was prepared and not devastated by all this, but renter beware…it has potential, but is not a very comfortable dress to wear.

I'm usually an 8 and the 8 fit me perfectly but I'm pretty curvy and the slit made it so short in front!

Looks much better on the model that on, the 6 fit odd and the material was uncomfortable and the 8 fell off of me, was glad I rented a back up dress!
