I got tons of compliments on this dress.
This wasn't the original dress I rented for a black-tie ball; unfortunately, though, when I went to the store to pick up the first dress, the zipper was broken and couldn't be repaired due to a hole in the material. So I had to scour the racks in the store to try to find something, which is easier said than done. Everything was either a size 0 or a size 10, and I'm generally anywhere between a 2 and a 8, depending on the designer.
Luckily, I found this dress in a 4R, and it actually fit very well. I probably should have worn a backless bra or some kind of bra support just because I did have to keep pulling it up all night (I'm a small C, large B). But it's an absolutely gorgeous dress with a beautiful cut and some sexy details - black sheer to show some cleavage and black sheer in the back at the top hem. I could have used a size 4L - I'm 5'8 and ended up having to buy 2" heels to wear, but the dress still was above an inch off the ground. It wasn't a big deal though.
The only annoying thing about this dress is that there was a tiny piece of metal (probably from bra support) that was poking out all night, but they're fixing it. Otherwise, it's gorgeous. I got tons and tons of compliments on it and I would definitely wear it again.
