This is your classic Audrey Hepburn-type dress with a bit of sophisticated sex appeal. It's my go-to LBD for any after work event, museum openings etc

Super flattering fit
Size worn: 8

The dress seemed to run a little small, I typically wear an 8 and it was a little tight - def needed spanx! But the other cut and fit of the dress was very feminine and really flattering.

Perfect, Yet too on Fit
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This is such a beautiful dress. I loved the structured design and saw it worn by some of my star favorites (Sandra Bullock / Ryan Reynolds movie), that I thought it would be perfect. Well it was and I would have given this dress 5 stars and it should receive, however my problem was the measurements and fabric. This dress has NO STRETCH, not even a little. I got what I thought was my size and the one larger. I couldn't close either. Now in defense of this dress, I am athletic with, what I feel is, broad shoulders and more of a sports back. This was not the body shape for this dress. So I feel it is more of my body issues versus the dress. I think if we had a true understanding of the capabilities of different fabrics we could better judge what wold work on ourselves. This dress is what sealed my already mental deal with myself to work on my body shape to fit the true designer sizes. Designer sizes seem to be a size smaller then what the mall wants us to believe we are. So if I thought I was an 8, I would be a 10. Prior to this dress I had already planned a new fit plan that would help reduce my athletic back. That is a lot harder then just a diet/exercise plan. But anyways, I don't want to say the dress is at fault, it is just that my body shape was not appropriate, especially since I am at the top last sizes this dress is made in. If I could have gone to a 12 I would have made it (I believe it was unavailable at my time, or it could be that it wasn't made that large). The rest was perfect. It is just the material. I wish the designer used a fabric with just a little give. That would have made this perfect. So due to the designer not thinking of the dramatic slight differences in everyone's shape, requiring a little stretch, I had to knock it down a star. And honestly, due to the fact I have never seen such unrelenting fabric in a dress or any clothing I have worn, I yanked another star. But I wish and still wish I can wear this dress. The shape and design are so beautiful and really give the female form this business/librarian smarts with the feline sexy cut and folds. BTW - I am muscular and that is why my weight may seem odd with the sizes. Plus I wanted to try this dress so badly that I got the 8 even thou at the time it was completely unrealistic. I was still losing from pregnancy.

I was very happy with this dress. I wore it to a work "gala" and felt sophisticated and beautiful. I don't know if it's really fair to say that it runs small, but I'm pear shaped so it was a bit snug on the bottom for me.

I'm short, 5'1 and I was a little concerned this dress would be too long. It fit like a dream! I had loads of compliments and it was very comfortable. Highly recommend! Did both the 0 and 2, went with the 0.

This dress is very nice unfortunately I was unable to wear the dress as it was huge on top and very snug on the bottom. Getting a size smaller would be impossible. Other than that the dress was very nice and sophisticated. I contacted Customer Service and was issued a credit!

This dress does run a bit small without much stretch, as others have said, but the size 6 fit me like a glove (I'm 34-29-38). I couldn't eat much or bend over, but it was worth it. It's slimming and very sleek, and perfect with classic black pumps. Wish I could have kept it!

I love this dress - unfortunately now that I've worn it and know how amazing it looks on I'm going to have to purchase it. I often wear a size 4 in "high end" clothing items and wear a size 6 in regular to lower end brands. I fit perfectly in a size 6. I fully recommend and can't wait to own my own to wear all the time.

I don't understand what all the hype is about with the Black Halo Jackie Dress. I was very excited to rent it, but ended up not wearing it. I thought it had a number of very unflattering qualities. My main issue is with the arm hole openings and cap sleeves, which I can't understand why Black Halo hasn't redisgned by now. The arm hole openings are unusually large showing unecessary skin under the arm from the front, side and back. It made me look like fat was busting out of the top, when it was actually a bit loose. The model doesn't have this particular issue, but I imagine if you don't have a very narrow back and aren't really skinny then this could be a problem for you too. I am 5'6" about 123 lbs. The cap sleeve things are just all around awful. They're basically pointless, they don't hide anything you'd want them to and don't do anything good for your arms or shoulders. It looked better when I slid them off my shoulders, but then they gaped in the back. It's clearly not meant to be worn that way. I ordered a 6 and 4 expecting designer sizing (I'm normally a 2 at j.crew, 2 at Ann Taylor, 2 or 4 at Club Monaco). The 6 was huge. The 4 was snug in the waist but was a little big in the bust and hips. I would give this 1 or 2 stars but gave it 3 b/c it can't be all bad--it works on some people.

Ordered the 8 and 10 and both did not fit. I was deeply sad about this. Read all the reviews and measured myself but still no luck. I went to WHBM that evening and bought a dress size 8 to wear instead. All my dresses are 6 or 8 and jeans are 8. Shirt size is Medium. For whatever reason ( I think they sent me wrong sizes) the 8 and 10 could not even zipper up.

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!

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!

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. :)

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 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.
