I at first was a little uncertain about the neckline, but I came to love it after wearing the dress for a few minutes. This will be a dress I rent again. Works well for any occasion.

I liked this dress a lot, it was perfect for a work event. Only problem was that the belt was not sent with it (either size, I ordered 2) It does not list a belt, but shows it in the picture, and the dress has belt loops so I had to use one of my own.

The dress was very very flattering and beautiful. I wore it to work and then to an event at night. I seem to be the only one who finds this dress to run a bit small. I am usuallly between a 0 and a 2, and thankfully I ordered both because I felt much more comfortable in the size 2. I would order a backup size, just to be safe. Otherwise, the dress is so easy to wear, and elegant.

I rented this dress for my company's winter gala and loved it! I got so many compliments on it and felt very sophisticated, yet a bit sexy in it. It fit true to size - I am 5'5", 130lbs and the 6 was perfect. The dress came in perfect condition and I was very happy with my decision to rent this dress.
Love your body in this dress

Biz done right!

I rented this for a buisness event and got compliments all night. It hugs your body in all the right places and despite me being a short girl, I looked tall and statuesque. Would get it again! Please think of selling. I would buy it in a heart beat.

Love this dress!! Wore it to a fund raising event and it was perfect! Ordered a size 0 and 2. The 0 wouldn't zip up but the 2 fit great! I would for sure rent again!!!!:)

This dress is beautiful. The top shape is amazingly flattering and the dress is so well constructed. Just beware that it's snug through the mid-section. I only went with my back up dress because I didn't feel like sucking in all night. :)

This dress is amazing! It's my first rental, so I wasn't sure about sizing. I ordered the 4 (my usual "store" size) and a 6, and the 6 fit like a dream. Like some of the other reviews noted, it is quite formfitting, especially through the middle, but the detailing of the waistband and the belt made me look (and feel!) like a supermodel! I received compliments all day at the conference where I was presenting a paper. Sexy AND professional! I do recommend some smoothing undergarments (I didn't have any), just in case, but be warned that the slit in the back goes fairly high - though not obscene or anything! - so longer undergarments might show. Anyway, I love love LOVE this dress!

I was told I was petite by a stylist, but I dont think Im petite really. I dont have a thin waist, Im a 34C, 135 lbs, 5'3" and wore a size 8. You do not have to be 5'6" to look amazing in the dress like the site suggests. Anyways, I LOVED this dress. It fit amazingly and was the perfect balance of looking sophisticated and sexy. I wore this to my high school graduation and everyone loved it. Th belt is worn out so I wore a rivited skinny belt. The dress hit right below the knee like the model. Amazing fit! Next time I will try red too!
