Beautiful dress

A bit too mature for my usual style but it's so beautiful

Tight bust. Great color.

The material and color are amazing, but the bust is particularly small. I had recently ordered something by this brand in the same size, but as the photo shows, I could not get close to zipping up up around my bust (with or without a bra.)

Never got a chance to wear the dress

This designer's stuff runs really small. Too bad. It was a beautiful dress

I wish I could keep this dress!

This was a last minute decision because I ordered a different dress and it didn't fit unfortunately. I ended up getting this one instead and I absolutely loved it. It is a little mature but it was so flattering for my figure. Petite on top and curvy through the middle/bottom. I would have done with the hem hitting just at my knee instead of a little below. I was able to sit, dance, walk, and move comfortably all night!

2nd rental. Love!

Second time I have rented the stress. I love it! This time I got one with a jammed zipper. But Rent The Runway was quick to send me a replacement.

Very well made dress

This dress fit wonderfully, and I got tons of complements! I wear sheath dresses to work almost every day, and this is one of my favorites so far.

Gorgeous color and unique neckline

Beautiful color with unique neckline that got me lots of compliments! The fit is a bit big in the top and shoulder, so if i had been moving around the strap would slide! I sized up on this after reading reviews and it fit well through the bodice despite the slipping with the strap! Would recommend!!

Dull color, runs small

Wasn't impressed with this dress. I got it work a work holiday party, but ended up not wearing it. Also, runs small.

Runs small!

I loved the neckline of this dress, but it definitely runs small, particularly in the bust. I couldn't zip it over my chest at all.

One of my favorite dresses

I sized up because the side zipper was tough to close in a size 2. Very tight around my ribcage, and I'm not big-chested at all... But the size 4 fit much better. Tons of compliments and very flattering.

Runs small

I love the dress but it ran small. I typically wear a size 10, so I sized up to a 12. I still could not zip up the side all the way.

Too small in the rib cage- size up!

I'm always a 0 in black halo but the side zipper on this one is awful! Definitely size up!

Tight especially in the chest

The zipper for this dress was on the side, and I think if it had been in the back it would have fit. But I never got to wear it in public. Beautiful color.

Way too big and too long, very conservative looking.

Runs big and is very long. Color isn't as bright as I had hoped.

Loveeee this dress, but it runs SMALLLLL!

Despite this dress running about two sizes small, it's still a fabulous piece! I got tons of compliments at work and I felt so beautiful and confident in it! Also while the dress has a full lining underwear can show through, pick your panties wisely!

Too large

I wore this to my work holiday party. The dress is great for a business casual dress code and the red makes it festive enough for the holidays. I only wish it wasn't so large in certain areas. The waist fit well and if I had gone one size down, the waist probably would have been too tight. But with the size 2, there was a lot of room in the chest area and in the skirt - would have preferred to have the skirt taken in a bit for a more form fitting look.

Didn't end up wearing

Let me just say I love this dress and I'm sure it looks great on a woman with a different body shape. I'm 5ft, and about 120lbs and the zipper was impossible. The fabric has no give, and the zipper is very thin and small so I didn't force it. The bust was too big for the dress being a size two so the straps were huge on me. Also very long for someone of my height. The dress hit about mid calf, so a little longer than I was looking for. Probably looks great on someone with a slim, tall frame! Sad it didn't work out, but due to length I chose not to size up.

Dress is flattering and creates curves. Runs small and the color is more orange than red. fun dres

Wish the cut was a little lower to flatter the shoulders.
