Loved the dress! Fit well and was great for dancing

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

Fit was good, but I wouldn't recommend for larger busts as the boning isn't flexible.

Perfect dress for the ballet!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This dress had been in my hearts for a long time, just waiting for the perfect occasion. When I decided to see the Nutcraker ballet, I knew this dress would be perfect. I rented a 4 and 6. The 4 fit comfortably with a little room, but not too big. I was worried that it may be too short, but I was comfortable with the length. I did feel like the green of the ribbons did not look as bright in person as it did in the picture of the model. And I agree with the other reviews that the skirt does not poof out as much as it looks on the model. Nevertheless, this was a super fun and frilly dress. Worth the wait!

Cute Dress!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Rented this one for my HS reunion, dressed it down in tights and ankle boots. Very cute! Not really a "wowza" dress, but I did get a few compliments and I felt great. True to size for me, the 10 fit well with a nice snug chest - as a B cup, this may mean it won't work well for you larger girls. Being 5'4 it came a little lower on me than that tall leggy model, but still above the knee. The straps actually have buttons on the front and the back so you can adjust them and even, I think, take them off - I didn't try, but it did seem like the functionality would be there.

The bows make this dress!

Overall fit: True to Size

I needed a black dress for a work even but wanted a fun touch.The bows on the bottom definitely did that. The dress fit for my usual size. I have a small chest and it was just a little tight on top I would definitely recommend sizing up if you have a larger bust.

Cute dress and really easy to wear.

Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this to a St. Patrick's Day event and it had just the right hint of green. The skirt does not have the same amount of volume as shown in the picture on the model, it lies pretty flat.

Cute but not a total WOW.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress had less form than I expected meaning that the skirt was less flared and the bodice was less fitted than hoped for. People had a hard time telling that the bows printed on the skirt were in fact, bows. The dress was mostly flattering and comfortable, but I wasn't totally wowed per se.

I wore this dress to a wedding and it was cute and classy.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress fit really nice and snug on top, but it was too long! I'm 5'4" and the dress basically went down to my knees or maybe an inch above the knee. The dress is beautiful, but the length definitely gives it a more conservative look.

Comfortable dress, light fabric.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The fabric in the skirt was very light and "chiffony". I ordered the 6 and the 8. The zipper on the six wouldn't close completely so I wore the 8. It was very comfortable.

I didn't end up wearing this dress (I had ordered two for the wedding we attended) but it was a tough choice! This is a beautiful, well-made dress that fits true to size. The boning is done perfectly and the skirt is flowy and soft. Super cute and comfortable!

So adorable, but runs small up top

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small

This is such a gorgeous dress! Unfortunately the bust really does run small, and I have to return both sizes. I really wish I could have worn this dress though. It's so cute!

Loved this fun and comfortable party dress.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I felt great and confident in this fit-and-flare style dress and the best part? B-cups or under don't have to wear a bra. The shape concealed all the parts of my body that I don't like showing off (hips and bottom) and highlighted those that I do (arms and collar bone). A beautiful and festive dress that's super flattering AND comfortable.

Perfect party dress

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress fit perfectly. It was a little longer on me than pictured, which I expected because I am 5'2". For the best idea of how full the skirt is, look at the picture of the dress from behind. The photo of the dress from the front makes the skirt look a bit fuller than it really is when standing still. The bodice is very fitted. I ended up not wearing a bra because, even though I am fairly small chested, it didn't seem like I had any extra room for a bra. The boning in the dress ensured that this wasn't a big deal though. I loved this dress - it was fitted, yet comfortable and, best of all, completely darling.

Stylist Review!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This dress was really great! I loved the pop of green against the black! It is very fitted at the bust because of boning throughout the mid section. You either have to wear a strapless bra, or if you are small chested you can probably go without a bra! If you are larger chested I would recommend sizing up!
