The fabric and the color of the dress was perfect, but it was way too small in the hips.
The dress fit when I first put it on, but when I tried to sit down, I couldn't. It was large in the chest and way too small in the hips. I ended up not being able to wear it because I couldn't sit down in the dress, and the event was a rehearsal dinner for a wedding.

I felt comfortable!
The dress is a nice thick Shantug silk so it lays nicely and doesn't show every bump and bulge

Stylist Review
This style definitely runs small! When you're zipping it up, it almost feels like it won't happen, but once you get the zipper up, it looks amazing. I found this style to be surprisingly flattering and I love the color! The slip is super fitted, so you'll definitely notice that it's there the entire time you're wearing it. I feel like this would be a good style for a business casual event.

The dress is wonderful. It slims and tapers and compliments all of my asset. Runs small, very small.
What a wonderful dress!! The color is absolutely beautiful. It was a great decision to rent. I wear a size 18 but ordered both a 20 and 22 and fitted them at the store at 18th Street. I was surprised that the employees were basically indifferent to me when I tried it on. Not helpful, not rude, just ignored. I was actually assisted by a customer in the next dressing room. Great, lovely dress and will definitely rent again.

The dress is very beautiful and very flattering. I definitely runs small. I am usually size 16W/18. But I got a lot of compliments. If I were to rent it again I would probably get a 22W, just so that I would be more comfortable because the 20W was tight on me.

unfortunately, could not wear
This is NOT a 16W....it is a 16 Misses' and the fabric is very stiff and unyielding. I rented both the 16 and the 18. The 16 I could not even get on and the 18 I got on but could not zip. Order up 2 sizes if you really like the dress.

Everyone loved the dress. I like the color. I really don't wear purple but I wanted to stand out.
The dress fit a little small but overall a good fit.

I didn't get to wear it because it was just a little small but the service was great.
This is a wonderful service and even though the dress didn't fit, I got the shipment on time and returning was very easy because they had done all the work. I will be a repeat customer (maybe after I lose a little weight).

Pretty dress, pretty color -- just doesn't fit me.
Ordered dress in 14W and 16W, returned -- too small in chest and waist. Then ordered in 18W and 20W. 18W fitted well in chest and waist -- way too large in hips for me. These were women dresses, I usually take a 16 or 18 misses -- not women -- misses are usually less wide and are smaller in the hips. 20W was big all over. I

This dress is really pretty. Too bad neither of the sizes I ordered fit.
I had read the reviews and decided to order both an 18W and 20W, I usually wear a 16. The reviews had said that it ran small. For me, they were both too big. Wish I had stuck to my size. It is a pretty dress for a cocktail party.

No dress!!
This dress is not a 16W, it is a regular 16 and a very small 16 at that. So disappointed!! It is a beautiful dress and I was really looking forward to wearing it.
