Love it for fall/winter

This dress is very Madmen! Loved it! Very classic but the sleeves give it a modern twist. The material is heavy and will be great for winter. Very flattering and gives a nice hourglass shape to an otherwise less than curvy girl. I'm short and it definitely elongated my figure.

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.

Flattering fit.

The dress fit very well without being too snug. It was very appropriate for a work event with heavy material and a nice silhouette. Only thing to watch would be the bell sleeves if at a dinner so it doesn't drop into the food as you are reaching for things.

Rented it for a work cocktail party.

I absolutely loved it. It was so chic and timeless with a modern twist. I was heartbroken that I was unable to wear it because it ran large. Customer service was so helpful, but a smaller size wasn't available. I will rent again. This time I will size down.

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.

So many compliments on this dress! Classy and COMFY.

This ran a bit large for me. To get a truly fitted look I had to size down from my usual size 2. That said, it fit like a glove when I did. It's a thick fabric. So great for fall/winter weddings. It's super comfortable too!

It was a perfect outfit for needing to feel confident but be properly covered for a work event.

It was more fitted in the midsection than I anticipated, more of a column fit than boxy. Great high collar which relieves much obligation for jewelry. Great dress, great drama in the sleeves but not so much flair that it drew too much attention to me.

Statement!

I rented this dress for a professional conference. I felt so beautiful, and received so many compliments. This is a very unique dress, yet functions very well from day to night. I would size up, especially if you have hips or a big bust.

Ohh those sleeves!

You will feel like a Disney villain in these sleeves and the material and construction is nice and thick and weighty so the sleeves have a wonderful drape to them. The stand-up collar is quite face-framing as well and futuristic. Sleek, flattering, wonderful dress and very comfortable.

This dress was a hit!!

Great dress for an evening event. The material is heavy, so don’t plan to wear if the temp is above 75 degrees! It is also snug, so I also recommend to size up. Another satisfied rental!

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.

Don't be afraid to order the next size up. Also, know that the fabric is pretty heavy but once you wear it, it has a lot of movement. It's a beautiful dress.

I normally wear a 6; this was true to size. Definitely better for cooler weather given the weight of the material.

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.

The dress is trendy but sophisticated. I wore it to work and then out on a date with my hubby. You can dress it up with fun heels and earrings for the night with some red lipstick!

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.

"You look very SMART!"

I received so many compliments on this dress, including the grandmother of the groom stating, "You look very SMART!". Dress was perfect. I gained a bit of wait so I went with the backup size that fit perfectly. Dress was great for an outdoor wedding in the New England fall weather. Sleeves make the dress look so elegant and they didn't bother me at all. Love this dress.

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.

Gorgeous perfectly structured dress.

I ended up not being able to wear this dress because it arrived with a huge hole in the side seam. Very very frustrating. Because it was gorgeous and the fit was perfect for an hourglass. Felt like it had been tailored to fit. Very heavy weight fabric so only appropriate for cool to cold weather events.

This is a very thick dress and was absolutely beautiful. I wore it to a work function and felt like the belle of the ball (even though it wasn't a particularly fancy affair). The neckline is fabulous and the sleeves are very dramatic. I wish I could buy this one!

Elegant with just the right amount of flair.

Form fitting but not too tight. Mid to heavyweight material. Besides the panache of the sleeves and the verve of the collar, the dress is simplistic. I kept it classy and complemented the look with gold pave hoops, a sparkly choker, shimmery gold stockings, black peep toes with a gold accents on the heel and a tiny square gold bag with a chunky rhinestone handle. All in all the look was quite a success!!!

This is an amazing dress — the material is super heavy, fit is snug bu super comfortable, collar is elegant but easy, and the sleeves make it next level glam. I can sometimes wear a 2, but this one is a definite 4. Would rent it again!

The dress is a straight fit but is very flattering. The material is stretchy and extremely comfortable! My only complaint is that the neckline was wider than I was anticipating, so selecting jewelry that worked well was a challenge.

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!
