Great for a cocktail party!

Great dress that fits TTS. It was too short for the work party I planned to wear it to, but would be a great cocktail dress.

Felt great!

Loved this dress - very flattering fit for curvy ladies. Had to wear a strapless bra though because neckline was a bit sheer.

Waste of $$

This dress is so tight and short! I am a size 10, 5'9", with DD bust. Fit my waist but, even if I could've zipped all the way up the back, it was so short it looked disproportionate. Waste of money as I couldn't wear it at all. Don't rent!

Didn't like it all. Even before I tried it on

It fit, but a little loose and the material is heavy and thick. I didn't wear it.

Good but loose on a true size 0

It worked for a dinner Vegas but was not super flattering bc it was about one size too big around the waist. I am a petite size 00 or 0. Still cute!

Cute and versatile dress

Wore this to brunch with friends. Top was slightly large, but I'm in between sizes (8/10), went with the large size for comfort. You can dress this up with heels and jewelry for a cocktail party. A little stretch to it, but not a lot. Great length for us short gals. The lace is pretty and the dress was in good condition.

Not quite right...

I'm 4'10" and although the length of this dress was perfect for my stature, I felt that it was extremely tight in the waist section. I usually wear a 0-2 petite so I ordered the XS and S as the backup size. To my dismay, neither one fit properly and I ended up sending them back as I did not have time to order the next size up in time for my event. I would probably try this dress again in a medium as it is a beautifully stylish dress for a great price!

Fun dress for a work gala

I order both XS and S and was more comfortable in the S. Got compliments on it and it was nice it didn't feel too long (like most dresses do) being short

Great party dress , lots of cleavage

I am short so it was a good length for me. The sweetheart neckline is low, I wore a strapless black bra so that gave a little more coverage. You could still see the major cleavage, kept my hair in front to cover it up. Loved the little peplum , helped hide postpartum mommy pooch. Felt sexy and flirty

Just a tad bit snug

The small fit me perfectly in the back but my thighs were stretching out the under skirt and sitting down was a challenge. The medium was loose on the back but at least I had some leg room! Overall, very playful dress. Got lots of compliments as well

This dress is beautiful! I didn't end up wearing it because it was a little too tight and short for the wedding I'm going to but I still loved it. It's super faltering and flirty. I recommend it!

So flattering

This dress is so much prettier in person! It's all lace with a 3-tiered lace skirt. The waistline and skirt are so flattering - it makes you appear smaller while hiding any stomach "imperfections." It makes me feel sophisticated and confident.

Lining is too tight and short

The dress would fit fine if not for the lining. Very tight and short which is a problem since the overlay is sheer. Boob coverage is just low enough that one of my strapless bras wouldn't work. Otherwise cute and fun. Wish it had worked out better

Cute!

I love this trendy dress by Bardot! Running true to size with a little stretch, I recommend wearing your true size for your primary size and going up for your back up. This style is fitted throughout the midsection and has room in the hips. It works for all cup sizes. You are not able to wear a standard bra with this dress so you should wear nubra or strapless bra. At 5’3”, the length hit mid-thigh on me. The dress is simple but also a statement piece!

Dress was adorable!

I'm on the shorter side (5 feet) and this dress length was perfect for me! I normally use a medium but had to use a large simply because I have a larger chest and the medium would not close. I really like this dress and was very happy with my rental.

I loved this dress, super comfortable, great length which is hard to find for me (I'm 5 feet even)

It was a little big in the top area but not because of bust. It needed to be pulled up from the shoulders, but I wore a black push up bra so it was hard to tell that it was sitting lower then it should be.

Wore this dress to a cocktail attire party. Dress was perfect!

Dress fit great! Comfortable to wear and had some give. Received many compliments throughout the night. I used body tape to attach the bodice to my bra, so it wouldn't move. The dress was short. I was able to wear it, but at 5' 1", was almost mid-thigh on my. Would definitely rent again!

Received a million compliments. It’s very short but elegant on the top. Highly recommended.

Runs true to size. Dress is very short so must be comfortable with that look.

Cute cocktail dress for shorties

This was an experiment dress for me, not something I'd normal go for but figured why not. And I fell in love. I found it to be a perfect and flattering fit for someone of my height. I was worried about the length being too short, but it was a totally appropriate length for me, and I even ended up wearing instead of another more colorful dress to a wedding shower. It's a multi-season dress. It has a 1960's flair to it. And despite all the frills, it doesn't feel overly girly. I'm not a big "sleeves" person, I hate feeling restricted around the arms, but found the short sleeves to be comfortable.
