Party in the back
I have always wanted to wear a waterfall gown! I was so excited to wear this dress. I'm not so confident with my tummy area but with the right pair of knee length spanks I felt great!

Absolutely stunning dress that turns heads! Bride and bridesmaids loved it!
Its stretchy material...so its form fitting. I wore some spankz to smooth things out. The dress doesn't have a slit which I would have liked but easy to move around it. I wore the dress on a 90 degree for a barn wedding and it breathed well. The back of this dress is gorgeous. Pictures online do not do it justice. Had I seen this dress before my girls ordered their bridesmaid dress I would have had them go with this!!!

Fit great! Material was thick, it wasn't skin tight so I felt very comfortable in it.
The dress wrinkled pretty easily. Glad I got a long. Was so soft and comfy.

Black tie wedding
The color looked lovely, and the dress itself looked gorgeous. I rented a 6 and an 8. Both fit, but decided to wear the 8 so I was not self conscious about sucking in all night. Also, it is a bit heavy, but that did not inhibit me in any way.

Dress was beautiful and comfortable!
I usually wear a 4 and the 4R fit well. I wore 3 3/4" heels and the dress was just a tad long. The color was beautiful and I received many compliments. The back provided a fun and flirty element while still being appropriate and giving me peace of mind that I could dance my heart out without any wardrobe malfunctions.

loved the dress
The dress was cut a little low in the back to hide my bra. It was be nice to have a hook on the dress that could be attached to that portion of the bra.

OK for bigger busted ladies. Cannot wear bra so I did wear nubra -- wouldn't have been able to go without a bra given fabric. Very beautiful back and color.

Fits perfect and looks great but shows everything
The color of the dress is beautiful! It is my favorite color so I was so excited to wear it. Unfortunately this dress shows everything. Every line and bump stands out. So I couldn't wear underwear or a bra or spanx like many of the other women on here did. It was a chilly day for my schools prom so I was nipping out the entire day which made my confidence level drop. I was so uncomfortable the entire day and it's hard to find a photo where I'm not nipping out. If it would have been a little warmer outside I would have been fine. Overall beautiful gown but it just quite wasn't my day to wear it.

Compliments all night long!
This dress was amazing! Loved the way it fit. I didn't feel like it showed too much, but I wore it with Spanx and sticky nipple covers (no bra). Needed a little fashion tape to keep the back of the Spanx from showing, but that was an easy fix. I opted for a big sparkly bracelet and earrings with no necklace. Best night in a long time because I felt amazing!

So Many Compliments!
This dress was stunning and SO comfortable! I rented this for a black tie wedding and received compliments all night! I'm about 5'4 and wore the 4R with 2in heals and it worked well! The dress was still a little long but nothing to be annoyed with. I wore a stick on strapless and it worked like a charm. I would highly recommend this dress!

Perfection
This dress was the most beautiful at the event - outside of the bride's dress. It for true to size and I agree, Spanx are needed underneath. It gives the smooth lines I was looking for. Beautiful dress! Would wear again!

Purple elegance
In all honesty, I didn't even wear a bra with the dress... I know, scandalous, but it actually worked out great! I ended up wearing the 2P and it was the perfect length to keep me from tripping over it while walking around and wasn't awkwardly short on me. I got so many compliments from other wedding guests! I felt really sexy, but in an elegant way.

Heads will turn!
I rented this dress for a fundraising cotillion. I received so many compliments and heads were turning to look at the gorgeous back all night! True to size, it fit perfectly. The fabric is thick but will definitely show lines of whatever's underneath if you aren't careful. I loved this dress and would recommend it to anyone!

The dress was beautiful, but if you are even a little bit tall, order a long!
The dress was a beautiful lilac color, more purple in person than in the photos and the waterfall back was stunning. As others have pointed out, you would definitely need spanx and a backless bra with this dress as it shows every single line. I was unable to wear this for my event as it was way too short. I couldn't have even gotten away with wearing flats as it didn't even cover my ankles. I'm tall, but at 5'10" I can sometimes get away with wearing a normal length, but this one definitely runs short. If you are medium height and want to wear heels, I would suggest ordering a long.

My daughter wore this to her Prom. It is simple and elegant just what she wanted.
My daughter is 5' 7.5" and 140lbs. You will need a slip or spanx as underwear lines will show. There is also no support to the waist/tummy area so high rise spanx will be necessary for many.

Lots of compliments on the beautiful back!
Very pretty, but it is a pretty heavy dress. I'm not sure I actually had a petite size, because this dress was pretty long. Had to wear 4" heels. Earlier comments were accurate about it being very fitted ribs-to-hips. I ended up wearing the 2 because the back straps were too big on the 4 and it would have been too long even with the 4" heels. I liked it and got several compliments. Definitely the only one like it at our event!

Unique and beautiful
Beautiful and elegant dress! The color is amazing and was perfect for a spring military ball, it was definitely different then all the black and red dresses. It was comfortable and easy to move around in. My only complaints were that the lining was separate from the dress so it was easy to get bunched up. And everything flaw shows. I was tempted to size up but the 8 was far too big everywhere.

Very elegant
This was my back up dress and I LOVED it!!!!! It was simple in the front and elegant in the back with the ruffles.... I felt like a million dollars!!! I received SO many compliments on the color and style! The fit was loose so I wore the 8L. I think I could have done a 6, but I like to move and feel free. I normally wear an 8. I'm 5'5 , but wore 4 1/2 heels and the dress still dragged.

Favorite dress ever
This dress was flowy and I felt so elegant. I never stopped dancing and it was comfortable to move in all night. Light under garments because it is lighter/see through.

I wore this to my senior prom and got so many compliments.
I ordered a 6R and a 8R and wore the 6R. It fit just right and was slimming but didn't hug me in the wrong places. It was comfortable and I wore 3 inch heels with them. I wore a bra that attached at the waist due to the back but realized that it kept getting caught with the dress and could have worn the dress without a bra. I would recommend this dress due to its elegance and comfort.

Beautiful dress for a black tie wedding!
Dress is gorgeous in person, the color is very vibrant! It definitely fits true to size and I would recommend going up a size if you want to to be a little looser on the body, as it's definitely form fitting. You will probably want to wear spanx or some form of shapewear as the front will show any creases or lines. The back is absolutely amazing!!

I did not end up wearing this dress. The back is beautiful but too plain in the front. It is more of a light blue than a lavendar as shown in the picture.

A stunner- the color is simply gorgeous and the back is magical!
I am usually a 6 and I ordered a 6L but it was pretty loose fitting and regretted not getting a size 4. Regardless, the dress is amazing and the color is original and magestic - a beautiful subtle lilac. The front is simple and I would recommend dressing it up with a statement necklace or earrings. I received so many compliments the entire night!

Simple and elegant
I love this dress. It is simple but so beautiful and elegant. It runs true to size. Also, as a tall curvy girl I was concern the ruffles on the back would look awful, or worse make my backside look huge... it was surprisingly complimentary.

Loved the back of this dress but the front was really plain. Rented it to take pics but didn't end up using it because the front looks too plain. Rated 4 stars for that reason only.

Everyone loved my dress!
I am in between a 2 & a 4 but I went with the 4 because it felt more comfortable for an outdoor wedding. It was gorgeous & I loved the fact that it had the hidden waterfall. Everyone complimented my dress & it was a hit! The color was gorgeous & it was a little long (in 5'2" and I wore heels) but I didn't mind one bit. Would love to rent again!

Stunning Dress
I wore this dress to a Mardi Gras Bal. The color is a lavender almost blue. The material is thick but since it is light in color shows every line. Shape wear is recommended and a backless bra is needed. The ruffle detail in the back is stunning. I received compliments all night. However if you are taller than 5'6 get the long.

Still an option -trying a different size. Mother of the groom
This dress is exquisite with the back detail. I am going to try it in a different size as the length was slightly long even with heels. Very form fitting. I wish the back wasn't quite as low - still thinking of options to work around it, but a very beautiful dress. Definitely need Spanx!

Show stopper
I wore this dress to my graduation ball, and absolutely loved it. The color was beautiful, and the fabric stayed wrinkle free for most the night. I would suggest steaming the dress prior to the affair.
