Love love this dress! I am typically a size 8 (curvy with bust and hips), but only the size 6 was available. I was hoping the dress would be stretchy. It is definiely not stretchy, but the size 6 fit and looked awesome! Because it was a smaller size for me than normal it fit snug and was a little shorter than I am used to, but it looked fantastic and was comfortable. I wore it for my bachelorette party night on the town and it was perfect- even more beautiful in person.

LOVELY dress! I am 5'8", 125 and a size 0 fit PERFECT! The size 2 was a wee bit too big. Had a great time in LA for a weekend in this dress with platform patent tan pumps and tan clutch. Fabulous.

Dress fit a little big but I used a belt to make it work. It was a very comfortable/ relaxed dress with a classy look. This dress would work with any bust size. Most of the compliments I received was on the color of the dress. I would wear again but it's not at the top of my list.

Success!
I would absolutly reccomend this dress to anyone! I received several compliments while wearing this dress at a party. Typically I wear a 4-6, and I found the 6 to be a little big. However it still worked for me and was very comfortable. It was very flattering to my shape and showed off my curves in an elegant & classy way. Love this dress and I already have friends who are renting it for themselves!

Fun dress!
This is a great dress! I wore this to a fall wedding. I am tall and narrow and wore the 0...I am typically a 2 or 0. The top is a little big so I would suggest going with your smaller size.

great color
This dress was just OK. I wore it to a birthday party for a friend. I liked the way the top fit and it would be good for any bust size. I loved the color. The bottom got a bit bunchy and I had to keep pulling it down all night. And because it kept bunching up, the waistline also would not stay in place. I ended up wearing it with a black belt to keep it in place, which worked, but I was not very comfortable.

Not quite right
I thought this dress would be a home run but unfortunately, it wasn't as flattering as I had hoped. Also, the rouching on the bottom back half seemed disfigured and uneven. I wasn't able to wear this.

Very comfortable. Bottom bandage was less flattering than I wanted
The dress is cool-looking but I usually prefer a more sexy look. The top was very comfortable, the bottom half was a bit tight but I expected it to be a form-fitting dress. The only problem was the bandage around the bottom half was a bit bulky and so it just took away from my figure (big-ish boobs, small waist, small butt). My husband usually prefers me to dress 'classically' or sexy (but not hooker-ish) and he didn't prefer the look either. It's a cool dress and I was glad to be able to wear it to another party I had the next morning before returning but ultimately decided not to wear it to the event I was planning on because it wasn't as sexy or show-stopper-y as I was hoping.

This dress was beautiful and I loved wearing it!
The fits was a little tight but I was a little heavier at the time. It's not stretchy so if you are a 6+ size up to an 8. Overall it was a success and I felt amazing.

Love the color!!!!
The top fit a little bigger than I felt it should have compared to the way the bottom fit. Also the material was a little heavy. I would rent this again : )
