Gorgeous dress, but not right for me.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Beautiful dress! The fabric is really nice, the pleats and lace together add a modern touch to a classic dress. Fit was not right for me at all. I wear a 10 in pants and tops. I tried on the 12 first - the top half was too big, like it needed to be pulled up at the shoulders. I would have dealt with it for the evening, but the waist was much too small for my apple body. It zipped, but I couldn't breathe. Granted, I didn't have my Spanx Higher Power on when I tried it on, but I couldn't sit in the dress - I didn't even try. The 10 dress probably would have fit my top half well, but it was just too cinched in the waist for me. So sad. Loved it.

FANTASTIC DRESS!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I really liked this dress. It fit well. The length was just at my knees so perfect for the office grand opening party that we had. It's got a great vintage look that everyone loved. You need to wear a strapless bra or a bra with clear straps as the top of the mesh is open. The rest of the mesh has beige fabric beneath.

Comfortable and easy to wear dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I was the event planner for my company holiday party this year so I wanted something that was pretty but conservative and simple. The party theme was Gatsby or 1920's so I wanted simple so I could add a few props to fit in with the theme. I knew I would be running around all night and wanted to make sure I wouldn't be fussing with my dress all night. This dress was perfect with the addition of a sequin bag, faux fur jacket, and a feather headband.

Great Date Night Dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
I really liked this dress, and it was perfect for my tall frame. My husband and I were having a special date night, and I wanted to get dressed up a bit. His jaw dropped when I came downstairs to have him zip me up. :) I would caution busty ladies to be wary-- I had a hard time getting my "ladies" in the dress and zipped up. The fit ended up being a bit snug, but since it was just date night and not a long formal affair, it was manageable.

Great Details & Flattering Cut

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for a Gatsby themed new year's eve party I was throwing. I didn't want to look too costumey and this dress was the perfect choice. I would definitely wear it again. The fit and illusion lace create a very detailed, flattering fit. I wore a strapless bra with this dress. I have a very small rib cage and found that this dress was very slim through that section, especially when I tried it on with a bra that had straps. I am very hour glass shaped and this dress accentuated that in a good way - with room in the hips. I wore this dress for hours, was able to dance and received a lot of compliments. Not sure if it's a summery dress, but perfect for the winter season.

Fit was off ...

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I was so excited about this dress but it was too big for me on top, and under the full skirt was a not quite as full slip, and since it is slightly connected the to outer skirt the flaws couldn't be hidden. I am definitely a pear shape so a different body type might work better.

Great fit, beautiful dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

I know I wear a 4 in BCBG so there was no guessing on the sizing. The waist was a perfect fit on me. Loved the length (more tea length on me). Very easy to wear. I would definitely recommend this and rent again!

Beautiful dress but was not flattering in this color.

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress and did not end up wearing it. It's a beautiful dress and I've seen it in other colors. But this black color seemed to make me look frumpy. It accentuated my waist and made it look teeny tiny . However, probably because of my height, but the bottom of the dress hit my knees in a way that was not flattering. I felt too covered up, like an old lady. Also, the zipper in the back made the material hang heavy and fall in an awkward way. I would have had to wear my hair down to cover it. You can wear a bra. strapless or one with clear straps.

Very comfortable for a black tie work function

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I usually wear a 10 but the 10 was too tight around my rib cage so I went with the 12. The 12 was a little big in the chest area (and I'm a 34DD) but overall it fit well. It was long enough and covered enough that I felt comfortable at a stuffy black tie law firm event. I wouldn't recommend this dress for a night on the town with friends but it was great for a work function where I didn't want anything "hanging out"

I wore this for an evening wedding and got so many compliments. The pleated skirt was great for twirling and dancing. The photo does not do it justice.

Everyone loved it an thought it looked fantastic!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I am 5'11" and have some curves (bust, hips). This dress was GORGEOUS and fit well, if a bit snug through the torso. I wore a strapless bra with it, but if you are slightly smaller than I am up top, you may not even need to do that. I loved this dress and will definitely rent it again in the future. Oh, the length was also great for a tall girl as well!

This dress was so comfortable and flattering. I loved wearing it. I think it would be a great addition to anyones closet. Being that its an easy dress to" dress up" and easy to "dress down", depending on the occasion. Loved it and will probably rent it again.
