Classic dress with a sexy twist
Size worn: 44
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
From the front this dress looks pretty conservative, but the low, open back definitely gives it more of a sexy feel. Typically I'm a size 8 in anything that is fitted through the hips, but since you cannot wear a bra with this dress, I opted for the smaller size and I'm happy I did. While it was a little snug, the material was thick enough to conceal any problem areas and it stretched so I didn't feel like I was wearing the wrong size. If you are smaller busted, this may not be the best fit for you just bc it will gap at the top. Otherwise, I'd highly suggest!

This Taking It Back Dress is amazing for a night out! The construction is a difficult fit, with the open back, so I would recommend sizing down for your free backup! I would also recommend wearing the nubra or no bra. It's an excellent fabric, and perfect for the fall/winter season!

I ended up not wearing this dress for the wedding I rented it for. Although it runs large it has a very flattering fit. However, as other reviers have stated the hem and seams have an unfinished look that I wouldn't wear to a formal event.

Lots of compliments
Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Vacation
Beautiful dress. I was going to use fashion tape to secure the back, but my BF told me that it was supposed to look that way. Lol I did leave it the way it was (no tape) but I felt odd because I couldn't feel much of the material on my back. That made the dress a little uncomfortable to wear. HOWEVER, he was totally right and I got compliments all night! The photo of the model from the back does not show how it actually looks in person. It has more of a flow in the back.

Simple and sophisticated in the front, stunning & sexy from the back
Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I wore this dress for a date night out with my boyfriend on Valentines day. I'm a smaller bodies person and the arms were quite long on me. But I just tucked them in and no one would have know otherwise. My one con is that the back was a little big since it's so open. It messed up the silhouette a bit depending on how you moved. I didn't mind much, because I loved how exposed the back was. The body was very fitted so the larger back wasnt too inconvenient. I enjoyed wearing the dress especially because it was so cold out!

Very bizarre fit
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress looks really pretty in the picture - but I don't really know what kind of body you need to have for it to fit you. I sized down since the reviews said it ran large - which was a good idea in theory. However, while it fit through the body, I could have fit another person in the top with me. It was falling off. This was my back-up dress, so it wasn't a huge deal, but I would definitely not rent this on its own.

Stunning dress, exposed seams a bummer
Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I was so excited to get this dress because of the back. When I put it on my boyfriend was convinced I had it on inside out. After teasing him for not knowing what he was talking about, I took off the dress to check and noticed the exposed seams on the entire back of the dress. The hem on the sleeves and skirt are also unfinished. Of course this is just the style of the dress and in no way does is take away from how well made the dress is or how classy it looks when it's on, just be aware. I am pretty muscly so the sleeves in the 6 were a little tight. I also think my big shoulders made the large sizing of the dress not an issue. I would recommend ordering a size down if you're not muscly or broad up top, otherwise the back will slide off your shoulders. Even with the exposed seams I would order this dress again.

The back of this dress is so sexy! It's the SURPRISE! I went with the smaller size bc of fit!

I have hips and thighs and the two was a perfect fit. I'm tall and the length in sleeves and skirt height was very appropriate with black stockings for my Engagement Party! Stunning

Not for athletic type bodies!
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
It definitely runs small. The equivalent to a size 2 fit my body perfect, but I have really broad swimmer's shoulders and the fabric has zero give so my shoulders just couldn't quite fit. The back was super baggy on top though. It just didn't work for my body type. It would look beautiful on someone with slimmer arms and shoulders though.

Very comfortable, just the right amount of 'sexy'
Size worn: 42
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
The dress absolutely runs large. I'm really glad I read all the reviews before renting. I wore the dress to my 25th birthday dinner and received tons of compliments. It was really comfortable and easy to wear. The back adds a fun, sexy element too. My only complaint is that the back did not lay flat like it appears on the model. My roommate had to help me safety pin the back so that it wouldn't 'bubble.' I don't know if this happened because I'm shorter or what, but be prepared to do a little taping/pinning with the back.

Beautiful dress but way too big
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I ordered this dress but ended up not wearing it. I am typically a 6, so I took the site's advice and sized down, ordering a 6 and a 4. They were both huge. Even if I had ordered the smaller size, the sleeves were way too long on me - past my fingertips. I guess this dress is meant for taller women!

This dress looks SO elegant from the front, and it's stunning and people are surprised by the back! I usually wear a 2/4, i wore the 2 and still wished i had gotten the 0 (38) the top because it is open in back is wide and large, the sleeves are VERY long but i folded them under and in and you couldnt even tell.

Hugs curves, feels expensive and is super sexy for cold weather!
Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for my birthday in New York City and it was a HIT! The open back is a show stopper and it hugs the curves just the right way to accentuate your figure. The dress does in fact run big though. I'm so happy I read the reviews before I ordered my size. I'm normally a size 6 or 8, but after reading the reviews, I ordered a 4 and 6 (40 and 42) and the 4 was perfect! Definitely size down 1 to 2 sizes. I wore the dress with black necklace and sheer black tights. If you're looking for a stunning new year's eve dress and don't want the typical sequins, then this dress is perfect!

Pretty dress- just WAY too big.
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is massive. I rented it for a fraternity formal in Aspen, and I didn't end up wearing it. I generally wear a zero and I was swimming in the 38. The sleeves also had an awkward fit, but that could be because it was too big. Bummer, because it really is a pretty dress. I just wouldn't recommend it for petite girls/smaller frames.
