NOT a True Petite
I rented this dress in a 6P, which usually fits me perfectly. However, based on evidence I do not believe the dress was manufactured petite, but rather altered to be "petite." When I received the order, I thought they had sent the wrong size at first, because the tag said "6" but someone had drawn a slash on it with sharpie--I'm guessing this indicated it was altered. They failed to take into account the torso when altering, so while the skirt length fell perfectly, the torso was far too long. Even with my ample chest I could not wear this dress. Word to the wise, when you alter a dress to be petite, you need to alter the entire dress and not just the skirt length! If you are short such as myself, I would steer away, unless you have a longer torso and short legs. For reference, I am 5'2" and 128 lbs at this time.

Definitely made for a true hourglass body shape
I loved this dress but the top part is big. The straps were a little loose. I wear a G cup and there was still a little extra room so I don't think it would fit someone with a small chest. The waist doesn't have any stretch to it but the flowy bottom was great for hiding post-baby problem areas. I was able to wear my regular bra which I love. It's definitely made for a an hourglass body.

Used for opera workshop recital and orchestral concerto performance
Definitely too long in the torso. I normally wear a 4 and it was large. If its too large, the peek-a-boos in the waist do not show. It's an alright dress, not the fanciest in the world. Be sure to have pasties on hand.

Easy Elegance
Not a scene stealer, but perfectly easy and comfortable for a formal night out. Little long in the shoulder for me, but otherwise fits like a dream and very flattering. I love the tiniest peek of skin around the mid drift.

Beautiful dress but the fit was not good at all.
Beautifully made dress. The waist was fairly tight and the top was very loose. My C cup was not nearly enough to fill it. Happy I had ordered a backup!

Wish I owned it and could wear it again
I wore this dress so a government ball, which meant formal and "appropriate." I have a large bust and the top of the dress was very flattering. It squeezed me in enough to make sure nothing "popped out," but not so tight that I couldn't breathe. The bottom of the gown was light and had incredible movement, and the jeweled belting at the waist was a nice accent. I got compliments all night on the dress and was definitely sad when I had to send it back.

Lovely evening gown!
This is overall a very lovely dress and I received many compliments throughout the evening. It does run a bit large for size. I had to pin the shoulders up to make the top fit appropriately. Additionally it is a bit long. I am 5'3" and needed to wear pumps to prevent the dress from dragging. I was a bit surprised as well that the eyelets around the waist actually do show the skin underneath, it is not just a belt.

Felt beautiful
I didn't like the "hole" looking things in the belt area; some of them looked like they were supposed to be there and some didn't; I added my own belt. The outer chiffon shell got caught on my heels a lot too. Other than that it was nice.

Loved the quality and style but the top was way too big! I ended up not wearing it.
I really wanted this dress to work because I loved the neckline and feel of the bottom. Awesome quality but the top was WAY too low cut. I have a small chest and could barely keep it up. The straps were also way to loose too and I am very broad shouldered. It fit my waist but the top was too low cut and falling down. I ended up not wearing it.

Beautiful dress for pear shaped women, if you're short get a petite
Dress was gorgeous and flattering, but I definitely needed a petite. I am 5' 3.5 but slightly short waisted with small shoulders and a small bust. This dress is definitely meant for someone with my shape but i had to pin the shoulders to make it fit. I'm sure the 10p would have been perfect.

Size 8 true to size, size 10 for bigger chest?
I received 2 sizes. The 8 was a little snug in the waist and the beaded appliqué was coming apart from the dress causing a hole so I couldn't wear it. I was hoping the 10 would be perfect, which it did fit better in the waist but the top had about a 4 inch gap in the chest. It just seemed like such a big difference in the top considering it was only one size difference. If you're small chested and have a more round section like me, this may not be the dress for you. But I did love it, the style just did not fit my body type unfortunately.

Gothic Gown
I loved this dress. I decided that for Halloween it would be nice to wear a gown because sadly, I rarely have the occasion to wear a gown. This was perfect and had a very gothic, "Penny Dreadful", victorian-esque look to it. Paired with chandelier earrings, an up-do, and a fake scar on my neck and I was appropriately spooky. I ordered the 12P and the 10R as my back-up size. I ended up wearing the 10 though the 12 fit fine, could've gone with either. It's quite long and billowy, I'm not tall and even with heels I had to hoist the skirts up to navigate stairs without killing myself. But it's a beautiful gown and it was fun and comfortable to wear. Also, as a gal with large breasts (36FF) this dress fit them but definitely accentuated them, which I don't mind. Got 'em, flaunt 'em.

Ok, but not glamourous
This dress is ok. The beading is simple and the neckline/sleeve pretty. The length makes it formal. But it isn't the outstanding dress I was looking for. I normally wear a 4 or 6 so I think based on how the 8 fit it is true to size. Looks better in the picture than it does in person.

I wore this as a bridesmaid dress.
Pros: Gorgeous dress, moves well, easy to dance in, flattering, and comfortable. I received many compliments, and would wear it again for other formal occasions. Cons: Runs small (I usually wear a 10, but in this I wore a 12), straps didn't lie flat, and it's low-cut (so just be sure you're comfortable showing cleavage). None of these issues were worth deducting a star for, though. Overall, it's a great dress.

Sooooo many compliments!
You know you scored a good dress when the bride is complimenting YOU. :) I wore this stunning floor-length gown to a black tie wedding and was beyond satisfied. The dress is elegant, comfortable, and flows beautifully. The top was just a tad loose—and if I had to do it again I would have purchased a push up strapless bra (regular bras aren't going to work with this dress)—but overall a perfect experience.

This was a gorgeous dress, but it ran so small through the ribcage. I didn't get to wear it. I'm a 34DDD and was more than a little surprised that the 14 was too small.

Sorry, I am sitting down in my photo. The fit was great every expect the back and straps. The back gapped and the straps had to be pulled up to keep the girls in place. The 10R would have been too tight in my torso though.

I love how elegant this dress made me feel, and I never had to worry about panty lines or bra straps
This dress is lovely and felt sturdy when I wore it. Luckily I don't have a large bust because it was snug in the chest. It is also low cut but very elegant.

I really loved this dress. I wish I could have purchased it to keep. The only problem I found was I had to keep pulling it up due to the fact that my bra would start to show a little bit.

Stunning dress, beautifully cut.
The dress is definitely low cut so if you aren't comfortable with some cleavage, may not be the dress for you. If it had been mine to keep, I would've had some alterations done across the back. It was a little loose across the back, but some fashion tape across the front and under the straps helped to keep it in place. The length was perfect once I donned some high heeled sandals. I received so many compliments and was so sad to send it back!

The dress is even better in person. It has a slight curl at the bottom the picture doesn't show.
This is the first dress I have ever rented. I love how I could pick another size for free, because I wasn't sure what size I would be in with this kind of dress. I loved how it smelled and looked clean. The garment bag that it came in was fabulous! What a great idea on packaging. They made it so easy to return. I would definitely rent from this company again.

Endless compliments at the SAG Awards!!!
The dress is perfect for women who have a smaller waist and bigger assets. I normally wear an 8, but the way the zipper was placed, I was able to easily fit into the 6. It hits right at your waist, so if you're an hourglass like me, size down! :) The dress has no stretch, but that makes it very good for covering those things you don't want seen ;) If you're looking for a dress, don't look any further! This is it!

GORGEOUS DRESS! Back-up, could not wear due to small bust.
I ordered this as my back-up dress and it was absolutely stunning. The fabric and detail are perfect if you love a classic look without looking Plain Jane. There was only a size smaller left than I typically wear so I went with it and it fit perfect everywhere but the bust. I have 34DDD so it probably wouldn't do this normally to women, but for me it smashed my chest into an awkward shape. I think even if I had ordered a size up the straps would have had too much slack and dropped the waist line too low.

gorgeous black dress
this was a backup dress when my first choice wasn't available, and while admittedly not the look i pictured for my event (i wanted something more colorful) it was a show stopper and photographed nicely. i have a large c cup sized chest and it was easy to zip up, but not so large i couldn't fill it out. however, i do see how someone less ample in the chest may have an issue filling out the front as did seem more comfortable (chest wise) compared to the last dress by this label i rented. at times i felt it was a bit witchy with my dark hair and pale skin and red lips i paired with it, but the dress was so gorgeous so i didn't really mind :)

Wanted to love this
I wanted to love this dress so much but I couldn't get it zipped up. I was able to wear a second dress that was a size 12 but this one wouldn't even come close. When I looked to see how what had zipped looked, it looked like a big muffin top. Oh well, better luck next time!

Simple elegance for black tie fundraiser
The length was perfect for a short woman wearing high heels. The dress almost skimmed the floor. The top had ample size for me (34DDD), just a touch of cleavage and I could wear a normal bra. I loved the dress and it was perfect for the occasion.

Like this dress but didn't wear it.
I ordered a size 10 which is usually the perfect size for me but the bust of this dress ran a little large. My bra size is a 36C. Other than that it was a very nice dress that I would have worn if it fit a little bit better.

Loved the look of this dress and really wished it fit.
I am not small in the bust but this dress really made me feel that way. It was very large and even with help from some push up bras I could not fill it out. Rest of the dress fit like a dream and I really wished I could have filled out the top. Next time I will get more than 1 size.

A good friend's wedding- gorgeous event!
I have a typical hourglass figure- small waist, ample chest (34DDD) and hips. I wanted a dress that cinched in at my waist but with a full skirt. The dress was beautiful & I got a lot of compliments on it. It definitely showed off my chest....perhaps a bit too much! The only issue I had with it was because I had to go larger to fit my chest, it was a bit too long in the trunk portion of the dress. This caused the top portion to have a bit too much material so it didn't have that perfect fit & I felt like I was constantly pulling up the top so my cleavage wasn't too much. I did like the bottom though, very comfortable & had this trim around the bottom that gave it a really flowy effect.

SO many compliments! Sorry I don't have a picture to post.
This dress is a classic. It is definitely made for a bustier girl. I typically wear a 4/6 because I am larger in the bottom but had to get a 2 to fit my chest size. I would highly recommend ordering based on your bust. Also, I would have wanted a long but that size was not available, this was a replacement for my first choice. If you are interested in getting this dress and you want to wear pumps definitely get a long if you are taller than 5'5"

I wore this dress to a formal NYE party.
I opted to wear the 8R instead of the 10R. The 10R was almost too big! The dress fit pretty well, but the straps/chest fell very low. I ended up pinning the straps up by about and inch to not only feel comfortable, but to also to raise the fabric so it didn't sag/gather on my natural waist. I would definitely recommend wearing heels with this dress versus flats.
