Avant-garde perfection!

This is such a fun and unusual dress- an upgrade to the typical LBD. I am tall, so the side slit is pretty short, but balanced by the long piece. Also, the sleeves were a perfect length.

Coolest girl in the room with this dress!

This dress is very fashion forward, such a cool girl look! I'm petite so the skirt was slightly longer than a mini, I think I would have preferred it a little shorter to amp up the edginess. It would certainly put longer legs on display but not in a gratuitous way. The long piece in front needs to be perfectly steamed to get the proper look but once you get that right, it's amazing! The fabric was lighter than I expected so I ultimately went with another dress but I will definitely rent this again for another event.

No words for how fabulous this is!

You will have a fashion moment in this dress. The compliments just kept coming. The fit is a bit loose but it was the most comfortable dress ever! I will rent this again!

My favorite rental!!

This was my favorite rental to date. Such a comfortable and perfect fitting dress. The dress itself is thin and the longer layered piece is a thick crepe like material. Super simple, yet elegant. Wore to my cousins 20 year wedding anniversary party in LA! If I have an opportunity to buy, I will buy this dress for sure.

So much fun

Loved it. Would def rent again. Playful and sophisticated with a flash of sex appeal. Size down if you prefer a fitted look for going out. Looks great either way.

Best LBD!

I rented this for a friends wedding and wasn't sure if I'd like it. Turns out, I love it. This is one of my favorite rentals ever - and I rent a ton- as I have an unlimited membership. This dress made me feel sexy and classy. It paired it with my tan louboutins and it was spectacular. Must rent!

So.many.compliments!

This dress was a hit! It was a relaxed fit, but the short ruffle skirt made it fun and sexy!! I was surprised when it came in that the ruffle on the skirt is a different material that the top of the dress. Still great, just make sure to wear a Black bra because the material is really thin! :/ This dress made me feel so confident! Highly recommend!

Such an elegant, well made showstopper AND comfortable!!

LOVED this dress - highly recommend. Runs slightly large. Wore it to a November wedding when the temps got down to about 60 degrees F, with a pair of hose I was comfortable. Well made, lovely fabric. Does come up a little high near the back of the left leg (might see some buthigh). Will rent again

Top fabric too thin/unflattering on me

The top of this dress is a kind of thin mesh material so it emphasized my lumps and bumps in an unflattering way. It was loose/tight in different areas. And the sleeves way too long as you can see in pic. They can be folded up but not ideal. I loved the unique hem, which is a thicker material btw.

Classic on the top, sexy and fun on the bottom

This is a great, versatile dress. I wore it for a work dinner with stewpot black sandals and then again for a night out with friends with high boots. It was perfect for both occasions.

Tons of Fun

Such a great rental. I wouldn't spend the money on purchasing this, which makes it the perfect RTR option. Top material felt thin and was a bit see-through, but not a deal-breaker. The skirt was the real show-stopper, it was pretty F fablous. I got lots of complements during the holiday party I wore it to.

Great modern style!

I absolutely LOVED this dress. On top of it being extremely comfortable throughout, it is such a great unique style! The asymmetrical skirt is very flattering for any body type. I wore a size IT 44/ US 8 and was definitely true to size, however I always recommend sizing up for a back up size. The one thing I loved about this dress was that it did have a little bit of stretch to the fabric. Even though it is fitted throughout, it was also extremely comfortable. I am 5'3" and it was about mid thigh for me. Loved it!!!

Wore it to my best friend's wedding in Toronto. Upped the black dress game!

It's a great dress and is cooler than it looks, so you can definitely wear it for warmer weather events. It was a bit big on me but that's probably because I just picked the wrong size. The dress is comfortable enough to spend the whole day in and dance til you drop!

Like everyone said...this dress is everything!

The fit was perfect. The asymmetry and ruffle of the dress makes this dress different and sexy. While the top half of the dress is simple to balance out all that sass on the bottom. I would definitely rent this dress again!

Great dress for a cocktail attire event. I was complemented all evening.

I could have worn one size smaller, but it still felt great. It was nice to have a little room in it. It is true to size and flows beautifully when you move. I give it an Olympic 10!!!

One of my favorite rentals to date.

I absolutely loved this dress and am waiting for it to go on sale so I can add it to my closet. It had just the right amount of coverage and whimsy for a corporate Holiday party. The fabric is more sheer than expected though, so unless you want to see your belly button, wear Spanx.

I wore this for a "little black dress" all women's domestic violence fundraiser.

This dress is the perfect LBD; because it is unique. I am an athletic/hourglass--so tiny waist with plenty of volume on top and bottom. So I can't wear things that aren't fitted; nor anything that's too slutty. This is the perfect LBD/fun solution. Highly recommend!

LOVE!

I love this dress. I find it to be very flattering on my body type. I normally wear anywhere between a 6 and a 10 so I was concerned that the 40 might be too small. It was snug, but certainly not in a bad way. I was surprised by how thin the top is, but it wasn't see-through and very comfortable- it helped me keep cool. The skirt is a little short and I wouldn't have been able to wear it without having dark tights underneath.
