Very regal and classy!

This dress is a 10 out of 10! The fit was form fitting, but the fabric has give to it so it was a comfortable fit. The collar was very chic; it did not wilt or fall, but rather stayed perfectly in place all day. The length of the dress was perfect for my height; the hem hit at my knees (mid-knee). Although I love this dress and will definitely rent it again, I have to add that the stitching/hem on the inside part of the sleeves (midway down the arm, where the fabric fans out) is bulky and rubbed my skin to the point of causing an irritated, red mark. I'm not sure if it was because the dress was brand new (still had tags on it) or if it was an exclusive reaction, but I may try wearing something on my arms, under the dress, next time. I received a lot of compliments on this dress and, as already mentioned, will definitely rent again!

This dress brings the drama. Those sleeves! The below the kneee length. All RAD.

HEAVY fabric - snapped the hanger it arrived on. WORTH IT though. I received SO MANY compliments. The sleeves bring the drama. The neckline and below knee hem bring the elegance. I'll be renting this again FOR SURE.

Perfect for a cold rainy day wedding

Two very strong thumbs up for this one!! I had ordered a cute summer dress but when I went to the store to grab the dress I did a double take on the weather. Apparently fall arrived early and with a bang back in Columbus Ohio so I opted to change for a warmer and more appropriate option. I received tons of compliments on this dress. Perfect for a fall day that felt like it. Very shape forming so great for curvy girls. The material is great for staying warm and enough stretch to be comfy sitting or standing. I recommend this dress for anyone. Such a hit.

This dress is a show stopper! It runs true to size and fits like a glove. The fabric is a bit on the heavier side but the sleeves flow beautifully.

Funeral

I wore this for my Grandmother's funeral. It is a beautiful dress. Fit was a bit large. I could have worn a 6. This dress can be worn for any semi formal/dressy event. I received many compliments.

Fun and Fab

I loved this dress. It fit like a glove and I received so many compliments. Please note, the material is very heavy so it can get steamy fairly quickly if you're dancing or moving a lot.

Flattering & forgiving

This dress was incredibly flattering on me. I carry all my weight in my stomach and bust. This was very fitted, but the rich fabric did an amazing job of pulling everything in. I'm in between a 14 and 12 and fit in both sizes, but was overall more comfortable in the 14. The sleeves are amazing-simply by holding a drink, the fabric falls in such a way that it totally hides lovehandles and bellies. Would definitely rent again-next time I would wear my hair up so the neckline could be better appreciated. Be warned-the fabric is HEAVY and the sleeves made it impossible to get my own plate at the buffet.

Absolutely stunning.

This dress was absolutely stunning yes the fabric is very heavy it's incredibly well-made and I want it in my closet permanently in the very worst way. Received a ton of compliments fit like a glove didn't think I would enjoy the neckline but it really was very special.

Elegant showstopper; tons of compliments

Extraordinary dress -- pics don't do it justice! Truly turned heads all night. Could dress this up or down. I wore it to a fundraising gala. I'm usually a 6 but the 4 fit like a glove. I'd buy this if I could!!! I'll surely rent it again. Fit like a glove. Very thick fabric; hides any flaws.

So many compliments!!!

I rented this for a black tie preview party and was 100% satisfied! I usually wear a 10 or 12 and reading reviews chose a 12 and 14. When my package arrived on time, I was most impressed with the unique re-usable garment bag and then when I tried on the 12, it fit perfectly! I didn't even look at the other 2 dresses! I was complimented all night long!!It was Wonderful! What an amazing experience to be repeated!

Outfit for a Boss!

Compliments all day! This dress is gorgeous! The material is heavy and comfortable. True to size and hits the curves just right! The sleeves are a little annoying if you're trying to eat or cook but other than that it's a great dress!

Beautiful sleeves!

Overall it is true to size, the sleeves are the focal point. However I wish the top portion of the sleeves and the dress were more fitted. If I had to do it again I may have ordered a 2. The material is a bit heavy but it was perfect for a chilly November day. Because of the unique neckline you are almost limited to wearing your hair up to get the full effect but that was fine with me! My mom wants me to buy it :)

Gorgeous dress with dramatic sleeves!

I adored wearibg this dress! It was super flattering, and beautifully made from a stretchy, forgiving material that let me dance and move and still feel held in. The sleeves are insanely dramatic, and you'll feel really glamorous. Wear your hair in an updo and carry a clutch. I wore mine with silver Miu Miu sparkly heels and some oversized earrings.

Very Audrey Hepburn

This LBD dress is perfect. It is a tad on the larger side of true to size, but a gorgeous fit. I wore it to an industry holiday party and felt fantastic; it's consertvative enough for business, but party-sexy enough to give you confidence and sass. Hit me right at the knee; substantial fabric and lined. I'll definitely rent this one again.

The dress is beautifully made. I wore my 'back up' size as the dress is a bit roomy. I love the sleeves and the fit is very flattering.

More than a LBD!

This dress fits so well. The weight of the fabric makes a fitted bodice lay smooth. The sleeves and neckline give this LBD a little more distinction! Length is great for a taller person...hit at my knees...I'm 5' 9". Tons of compliments for this dress.

I LOVED this dress and received a ton of compliments! Inwore it for a traditional Indian engagement party and it was very appropriate. It's fitted, yet classy and the sleeves add just the right amount of drama. My husband loved it so much he thinks I should just buy it!

Material was thick and heavy for a February winter night so a coat wasnt a rually needed. The Sleeves cover any imperfections in the mid section perfectly. Unique design there was nothing like it there which I loved.
