Pretty, but not for a big bust

Pretty color and flattering fit, but will look better on a petite with a smaller bust

Warning: High Sass Level

I rented this dress to wear for work. The fabric is very high quality and the dress fit like a glove. However, I did not expect the front slit to be so high/revealing. This became a much more significant issue when I was sitting down. The slit widened so much that you could see my upper thighs/almost crotch. I sat in my office with a jacket over my lap the whole day. Ordering a size up might help with this issue. If you plan on standing up and staying still the whole time (e.g., for pictures), this could work as a professional dress.

Annoyed with this dress

I ordered this dress for a big meeting at work, and was so frustrated when I tried it on. I knew the front would be tricky with my large hips, but I thought I would be able to pin the "flaps" closed to an appropriate length. Because there is almost zero stretch in the lining of this dress, that's a no-go. Without the ability to hold it closed, this dress is a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen. Girls, if you have a booty, beware of this dress!

Too revealing for work

I LOVE Black Halo, & was excited to rent this dress for work. It fit like a glove, but the deep "V" neckline showed a bit too much décolletage for my job description. The crossover slit was a cool design element, but again, too revealing for work. Esp. when seated. If you've got a black tie event or fancy cocktail party to attend, wear this beauty all evening! Just doesn't fly going from work to an event.

Post baby size trials

I'm working out my sizes in different brands post-baby and this dress was lovely but the sizing wasn't right for me. Hopefully down the road I'll be able to retry.

Weird neckline

This dress is well made. The neckline was strange and made a bra difficult. I didn't wear it

Not for work but got lots of attention at the party

Made my girls stand out. This dress was a hit. You just have to be careful sitting. The girls pop out more and the sexy slit on the leg will show everything. So not work appropriate really.

Gorgeous neckline and shape

Wore this dress to a special dinner party. Wore no necklace because the neckline was so special. Traveled well in my suitcase from east to west coast. Fabric is substantial and perfect for a cool evening.

Too loose at the top

I knew going in that this dress has a high slit and is not work appropriate. I rented this dress for a work party and was going to be standing most of the time so the high slit situation didn't bother me. However if you have a small bust like I do, beware. The dress is tight in the shoulders and waist, but too big and loose in the bust. This dress is better for someone with an hourglass shape or Apple, not pear or straight. Dress will be returned.

This dress is so cute, but rode way up on me. The slit was too high.

The dress rode up my hips and caused the slit to be far too high. As a result, my undergarments could be viewed when I walk. This would be better for someone less "hippy" than me. Great color and fabric otherwise.

Wore it to an Award

Great fit. Loved the neckline and the color. The slit was definitely high and not work appropriate without tights but once I was confident that nothing was actually showing, I embraced it.

The neckline is surprisingly deep and the slit in the skirt is way too high. Could not wear to work and feel appropriate. Definitely size up on this one.

Nice dress.

Fit is tight w/a high slit. Liked the unique neckline but would've been nice to have something to secure bra straps.

Great cocktail dress, runs small!

Runs very small in the chest and sleeves area, I couldn't get it zipped! Also the slit on the wrap skirt is higher than it looks - didn't work for the work dinner I rented it for. Fabric and construction is very nice though, size up!

Too matronly

The dress is fine for someone taller, but on my 5'2" frame, the hem came way too low and hit just at that not-so-flattering mid calf point. The top is interesting, but very boxy and made me feel like a mother of the bride lol

It made seeing my awful ex tolerable

I am 5'8, 130, small busted & this gave me curves, yay! I probably could have worn a 4 but sizing up gave me an advantage that defeats an issue with this dress: the wrap bottom showing your thighs to the world when you sit down. The looser fit allowed me to wear "boy short" Spanx instead of my usual "mid-thigh" Spanx (you should always wear Spanx.) So it allowed me to be relaxed, calm & flash a little leg at a public function where I had to present an award to my awful ex!

Nice dress

I liked the dress. I wear a 6 and it fit perfectly. There is a split in the front that is somewhat revealing when you walk or sit down. I'm short so it wasn't much of an issue. I really liked the color.

Showstopper! But beware the slit!

Loved this dress! The neckline is fabulous and material is great! The slit is ill placed and a bit high, so I found myself struggling to sit and not shoe note than a little too much leg. Even when I walked a little bit much for the work environment. Wore it anyway...cuz, PRETTY!

Made me feel a bit like a linebacker

The dress is really well-made and beautiful but like most black halo dresses with sleeves, if you ever picked up a set of weights in the gym the arm shoulder bust Ratio makes it feel like you're going to hulk out of the dress. The body of the dress fit perfectly given that I am small in the waist and chest but larger in the hips. the same dress in a sleeveless version would've been perfect.

Great fit, Hugged in all the right places, beautiful neckline. Took one star away because the slot was VERY open. Had to be very conscious of how I was sitting.

Nice dress. A little dressy for work.

I liked the dress a lot. It runs small so always order a size larger. It's a little sexy for work. It's perfect for a cocktail reception.

The dress was right for the Gala occasion. The navy color was quite nice.

The dress was flattering but definitely a dress for and event that you are standing. When sitting in this dress the middle slit busts wide open no matter if you cross your knees, clinch knees together, or keep your ankles crossed. For dinner I had to make sure my napkin was covering my lap to avoid any wardrobe malfunction.

The bust was very tight and the slit was very high in the front.

You will need to go up at least 1 size if you have a larger bust. The dress body wasn't too tight but the slit was very high in the front and a bit past my comfort level for work. Possibly a bigger size would have helped with that as well since the slit is a bit of a wrap style.

Worked for professional meetings

I thought this dress fit very well - agree with others, it is snug fitting. I included two photos to show the depth of the V-neck and the actual width of the shoulder cut-away for bra-planning purposes. The slit when seated showed more thigh than I generally like for a conference room meeting or a business dinner, but OK. I would consider renting again.

Beautiful Dress but couldn't zip it up.

Loved this dress however if you have a broader rib cage you might want to go a size or so up. Going to try renting it in another size to see if it fits.
