Wore this to prom and it was SO beautiful!

Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The fit is so perfect. The top acts like a corset and gives you a beautiful figure. The skirt is full but not too big. Seriously, so beautiful!

Beautiful but tight

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress was obviously well made, a beautiful color, great length...but too small for me. The dress fit great in the hips and waist, but at my rib cage, the dress would barely zip up. I had to have two people help me into the dress. We did get it to zip, but the fit wasn't very conducive to breathing...I really wanted to make this dress work but I just came to terms with the fact that it is definitely made for a smaller ribcage than mine. Tips, if you want to rent this dress, definitely do so, but if you have larger ribs, size up. Also, this dress was a bit longer than floor length (by about an inch or so) for me with 4 in heels, so if you want to wear heels shorter than that, definitely get the regular length.

Amazing Gown. Total jaw dropper.

This is definitely a Cinderella princess gown. I wore it to a Naval Xmas party and turned every head. It's absolutely stunning.

Stunning, Regal and Awe inspiring.

Size worn: 0L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was absolutely spectacular. I went to a party at the Met Opera members club for a black tie event. I thought this dress would be understated but it completely stole the show! Strangers would come up to me and tell me how beautiful my dress was and that they had noticed it from across the theater. By the end of the night, most everyone at the event knew my dress, if not my name. The best word I think I can use to describe the dress was regal - because you feel expensive, like royalty! The fit is a little small, and I almost couldn't zip it up with a bra underneath, but I also never wanted to take it off either....

Belle of the ball!!

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was absolutely incredible. I've never felt so beautiful and was getting compliments on it all night long. You'l feel like a queen in this dress. I wore it to a black tie event in NYC and people couldn't stop talking about it. I'm 6 ft tall and the length was perfect with two inch heels. The eight fit me like a glove. Be aware that although it looks black in the website photo, it is a gorgeous deep navy blue. Can't recommend it enough!

Too long

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is gorgeous, however it is simply way too long. I am 5' 3", and it was literally a foot too long for me. Do not rent it if you are shorter than 5' 6". Its also extremely tight around the bodice.

Not enthralled with this dress

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress was very blah. Looked more like a bridesmaids dress than a formal gown. Nothing overly flattering or pretty about this dress in my opinion.

This dress was an absolute dream.

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
My original dress wasn't returned by the previous person in time. I was in a panic and the customer service stylist sent me this as a back up option. I was IN LOVE. The formal affair was a black tie wedding and my husband thought it was too close to a bridesmaid's dress. I disagreed but decided not to wear it and honestly regret it (though I did love my dress). My only comment is that the tulle was wrinkled in shipping (naturally) and I didn't have a steamer. Otherwise - absolutely amazing.

Understated & Gorgeous

Size worn: 0L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I did ultimately end up wearing something more body-con, but as someone who normally hates the poofy princess ballgown look, this was something I actually loved and might wear at some point because of the flattering lines of the bodice and understated, sexy, not-quite-black colors.

Too big

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size

I needed a size 2L or 4L, but the 6L was sent instead and was too big. The dress appeared to be well constructed.

Beautiful, but too long!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered this dress in size 6 and 8 regular. I am 5'2". The dress is so pretty, however even in my 5" heels this dress was just too long. The hem was about 2 inches on the floor, which therefore made it more "poofy" than I liked. Sadly, I just couldn't make it work for me.

Decent for one night

Size worn: 10L
Rented for: Wedding
Dress looks nice but was very tight around the chest and I'm a 36c and wore the 10l. The dress quality is poor and the mesh was ripping when it arrived. I got many compliments on it but wouldn't rent again.
