Sexy
Rented this for a beach wedding. A bit sexier than I imagined it would be but I felt beautiful in it. I couldn't wear a bra with it, but it held everything in place.

Gorgeous dress - so many complements.
This dress was great. The fabric is comfortable and the skirt was so fun and flowed beautiful for dancing at the wedding. I was really nervous about the low-cut too since I have a larger chest size, but it worked great all night! I wore some tape and everything stayed in great ;) so many compliments, I highly recommend this one!

Wedding full of his exes!
Comfortable, thick enough to go braless, fit beautifully, cleavage galore. It made my point! Dressed up with heels for beginning of day, down with flip flops for outdoor reception. Everyone loved it, stranger told me I was gorgeous!

Marilyn Monroe and Classy Cleavage
Material was super nice and dress held the boobs up (with a push-up bra) better than most.

Wore this to a charity event and received so many compliments!
The chest was awkward fitting and overall the dress was just sort of big. I'm 5'6", 130 lbs and hourglass build and usually wear a 4. After trying it on, I could've definitely gone down to a 2. The straps run large and wide and although I am a 32 DD with fake boobs and I felt like I couldn't fill this dress properly. I used so much double sided lingerie tape it took 2-3 glasses of champagne before I could relax and stop worrying that my nipple was going to pop out or the strap was going to fall down! But, once I relaxed, I had zero wardrobe malfunctions and the dress was a huge hit.

Can't wait to rent again
Such a cutie! I ended up going with my first choice dress but will be renting this for a wedding or bridal shower type event in the future. Hugs my athletic frame perfectly. This dress wouldn't work if you couldn't fill out the chest enough as you might have peekaboo problems. The skirt is on the shorter side so pair with some boy shorts or cute undies in case a gust of wind or your sweet dance moves lift the skirt up. Gorgeous pale yellow color. So so so cute!

Kept me cool on a hot day!
Comfortable and easy! Great for girls with a B or smaller cup size, I wouldn't recommend this if you're busty. It was a hot day the day I wore this and I stayed cool, but the material is still thick so you don't feel too exposed even with the deep V neck.

Stunning, many compliments
Loved this dress, but I think others attending the wedding liked it even more. Received a ton of compliments on the style and color. I fit into a 4 which felt tighter around the bodice as the night progressed but still very comfortable. Used padded inserts instead of a bra to avoid lines from any underwire. Highly recommended!

Such a fun dress!
This dress fit great and was fun to wear. The sleeves were a bit large and I had some room in the boob area, but no major gapping that made me uncomfortable. I would definitely rent this one again.

Nightmare
I ordered the dress in a size two and it fit perfectly all around. Until... it got to the boobs. The top of this dress is extremely large. I'm usually a full B cup or a small C. This dress was made for someone with a DD bust. This dress was a nightmare to wear and I wish I had gotten a backup dress. I used dress tape and couldn't even enjoy my event because the dress kept falling off/ and wouldn't stick on with even a half roll of dress tape.

Tight on my rib cage
Ended up not wearing it. While I still believe it's true to size, it was tight around my upper rib cage where it's just skin and bone. Very fun and flirty but also a heavy material. Looks like it was be an awesome spring or summer dress but I wouldn't stay outside in it too long

This was my back up dress and neither size fit!
This was my back up dress. I am usually a 16 or 18 depending on the designer/ style of the dress. I am busty (38DDD) and have hips. Hourglass shape although the middle isn't as thin as I would like. The 16W fit my torso well but I couldn't zip up past the bra line comfortably. The chest was super tight. The 18W was too loose- it's like my torso wasn't long enough. The shoulders would have to be taken up about 2 inches at the top and major gaps under arms/side boob. I packed a cami as I knew this was a deep V and not the best for a chesty gal as a wedding guest. But not even a cami could make this wearable. Although the dress didn't fit it was lovely. The material felt heavier than I expected but nice. I couldn't tell in the photos but the zipper runs the entire length of the dress, a neat detail. If it fit I would rent it again or see if I could find it in the buy forever section. I still might depending on the sale price and take the 18W to get altered.

Great dress for a NYC B&B wedding!
I loved how the dress looked on; however, the straps were a little loose so I had to pin the dress to my bra to keep everything secured. It was distracting because I kept looking down throughout the night to make sure everything was in place!

Unusual fit around the arms - not for petite ladies!
The dress is a beautiful color and a great fabric, but the fit was really unusual. I often have difficult with some clothes since I have a 27inch back but larger boobs so I don't usually comment on fit, but this dress was so off that I imagine well-proportioned people will still have issues. I'm usually a 4/6 and I got this in a 4 and it HUNG off my top half. The straps were way too long that there was serious gaping around my armpits from the excess fabric. To make the dress flattering, I considered pinning back the straps, but to do so sufficiently... I literally had fistfuls of fabric in both hands, I mean seriously who is this designed for? 6ft7 women with ridiculously long torsos?? Plus the skirt section cuts a bit too high, so it's above your hips, giving a bit of an unflattering form. Really hoped I could have worn this since the color was so great. It also was way too long on me, came down to my knees. I know 5"3 is small but come on... So I definitely would not recommend this for petite ladies!

Gorgeous but deep v is TOO deep...
The color, fit and flow of the skirt were spot on, however, I didn't end up wearing this dress due to the fact that the low cut front (which I expected) was just TOO low. My mom, sister and fiance all agreed it was a little too much for the party we were attending. So I ended up wearing my own backup. I went without a bra, and the 4 fit perfectly.

Wore this to a summer wedding and it was perfect. The top it a little loose as others said but not to the point that it didn't look flattering. Would rent again

Wow cleavage
I give this dress a 4...loved the color and style but the top was a little difficult , it's sooooo low cut and I'm big chested and I still had to use safety pins to keep the top up but I was able to pin it and loved the look. I had just had a baby 3 weeks before this wedding so I ordered way up in size cuz I wasn't sure what to expect . So I don't really know how it runs in size it was a little big on me and especially big in the strap / chest area like I said but also wearing a dress 3 weeks post partum things are bound to fit weird. Rent the runway was awesome as usual and I got a ton of compliments

head turner!
Perfect Sumer color. Stunning lines and the perfect combo of classy, sexy and flirty. The top is disproportionately big. I'm a 34d and it was still way looser than I would have preferred... but it was workable and still got loads of compliments!

Felt amazing in this dress
This dress very flattering and got compliments the entire night. I don't have a huge chest but this dress was very booby. It seemed like very nice quality. I was hoping I wouldn't need to wear a bra with this but if I didn't, the dress wasn't tight enough to support me. Overall a good experience and I would definitely wear this dress again. Highly recommend!

Beautiful wedding, a lot of fun and dancing!
I am a size 16 and the waist part was very tight. It is very low cut, better for someone with smaller boobs. I'm a D cup and they would not stay in the dress, I even tried tapping them and it did nothing. I did a lot of jumping and dancing at home in it before I decided to wear it. The dress is beautiful and I love the color. Disappointed when I realized it wouldn't work for me. I am 5'7" and the dress length was comfortable. Not too short.

Pretty dress - too large up top
I really wanted to love this dress. I was so excited about renting it. It fit perfectly in the waist and I loved the skirt/flare. However, the sleeves were too long and the fabric was too thick for me to pin to make the dress work - I didn't want to damage it. I ended up wearing one of the other dresses I rented.

Very sexy and sliming dress
This pale yellow stunner was just that. Paired beautifully with heels or flats. Had a great flow when I walked. Very slimming at the waist. The neck line is very sexy. It can be toned down with a cami underneath. As a 34C the girls were up and out. Hubby loved it haha

Sexy yet sophisticated
You will probably want a little fashion tape, I ended up using a small amount and everything still managed to stay in place. I did quite a bit of dancing too and nothing popped out :) I received so many compliments from men and women. This dress is definitely a show-stopper. Loved it.

Good dress for the right body
I loved the color of this dress, but I am small-chested. This dress was too loose on top but was a good fit everywhere else. I unfortunately could not make this dress work, but it would be great for the right body-type.

Beautiful dress!
This dress was beautiful. I'm usually a 6/8 and the 6 was a bit large so I sized down to the 4. I wore a u plung bra. You can also not wear a bra. Just pair it with a pair of cute heels and earrings and you'll be good to go. This is a great dress for an hourglass shape. I danced the night away. I would definitely rent this dress for a springtime or summer wedding.

Perfect for a summer wedding!
This dress was absolutely stunning. It was well made out of a thicker material, and was very comfortable, even through a long night of dancing at the wedding reception. I received compliments all night, and even had several people tell me it was a Marilyn Monroe-esque look! I definitely would recommend this dress - I wish I could have kept it!

Nighttime wedding
This dress was really beautiful for a wedding. It truly is a Marlilyn dress. I got SO many compliments, especially when spinning around on the dance floor! It runs large, I'm usually a size 6 but wore a 4 in this. I have a very small bust so I had to wear thick bra pads to keep it in place at the top. I also had to sit up straight to keep the pads from showing, but it was so worth it!

This dress is tricky in the bust. My boobs were a bit too small (36B) but I used some tape and all was well. This dress does not stretch but it has a great zipper.

I couldn't wear the dress...
The Waist was really tight, but I could have made that work if the straps weren't so long. It is a thick material so I couldn't pin it without it looking odd. I am 5'11 so long straps have never been an issue. it was very strange.

Low cut so if you're short, curvy, and big boobed, perhaps rethink.
I'm only 5'1 and with my short shoulders/big bust this did not fit up top. But it was gorgeous!

The dress runs small but large in the bust. Once on I LOVED how it looked on me but it just wasn't right for the party I was going to. Thinking maybe for a birthday dress.

Sexy in yellow
I loved this dress! The twirl factor alone made me love it. The color is the perfect pale yellow. The only thing is the straps had to be tapped up because they kept slipping. The top definitely has some room for someone with a larger chest. I did not wear a bra due to the neckline which probably didn't help. But overall, I enjoyed this dress and received many compliments. I would definitely rent this again.
