Color is more muted/understated in person, but it is still a beautiful dress. Side detailing is studded rather than jeweled. Runs very large-I wouldn't recommend this if you are a true hourglass unless you order it a few sized down.

I am a size 6 so took the stylist's recommendation to order the size 40. It was way too big. I think the size smaller would have been perfect.

lovely!

Size worn: 36L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Highly recommend this dress as it is very comfortable to wear yet looks very nice at the same time. As I am quite tall, I have broad shoulders so the one shoulder look was very complementary to my body. Also, the dress does run somewhat large; i would say it would have been a bigger issue if i were petite but the dress really suited my taller frame. I got the long version and it was a great length - it skimmed the floor but i didn't have a train at all. Perfect.

Problematic fit

Size worn: 42L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Tight around the rib cage, but loose in the bust. Consequently, it didn't "hang" well on the bod. There was only one size available, but it wasn't a size issue, it was a proportion issue. Returned it the next day. Too bad, beautiful color.

Glam!

Size worn: 40L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Received so many compliments on this dress, it was very elegant. I ordered the longer length and with 3'' heels was still a bit long. Fabric stretches out by the end of the night too.

Couldn't use this one

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered two sizes in this dress. The 40R was HUGE! The 38 was okay, but frankly it looked frumpy. I wore the backup dress instead. BTW, at 5'6", the 38L was too long.

Stayed on the hangar ... took the second look I rented out on the town instead.

Size worn: 36R
Overall fit: Small

Rented this for the local news Emmys and wanted to feel like a million bucks. I did not. It did not fit around my hips and was just awkward. Thank goodness I rented a second dress.

I wore this dress to the 50th anniversary of my family's company. The dress fit great, however it was a tad bit too long.

so nice to have a designer dress on a budget!

Size worn: 42L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
It was a little big and often was hard to fit with a bra. the material did not stretch and putting it on over hair was a bit troublesome.
