I loved the dress, and so did everyone else. Compliments all night.
This dress is absolutely lovely, however, I should definitely have paid attention to the advice to size up. I am a size 2 in American sizing, but my arms/shoulders are bigger from my gym habit. When I received the dress, it has a tear under the right arm, and I can see why- the lace fabric especially has no stretch. I was able to squeeze in, luckily, but I will definitely size up in the future.

The entire event!
It was a very nice dress. I got a lot of compliments while wearing it. I just wish the front were a little shorter for us ladies with not such long legs.

Beautiful dress. Inaccurate size chart.
I ended up not wearing this dress to the black tie event that I rented it for because it didn't fit. I have a lean, athletic build and I normally run from a 0-6 in dress sizes. I sized up for this dress to make sure it would fit well and comfortably. However, both dresses (38R and 40R) were extremely small in the torso and very restricting in the arms. The fabric was not the most comfortable either.

The dress is so pretty! But, I'm a size 0 and tried to rent the 38R (size 2) and it wouldn't zip up.
There is absolutely no give in the fabric. Size up more than you think you need to.

I absolutely loved it. Too many dresses in my closet, or I would have kept it
It fit perfectly. I felt wonderful and fun to wear. Lots of compliments. I rented because I didn't want another dress cluttering my closet but I would have traded one of my other dresses for IT!!!!

SO MANY COMPLIMENTS!
The dress was absolutely beautiful and I would wear it again in the future. The only down side to this dress was that the dress is very very tight in the arms. I had to get a size up and the arms were still a bit tight.

STYLIST REVIEW!
I felt like a princess in this dress! This is extremely flattering and gorgeous. This does run small, so I absolutely recommend sizing up! This is fitted at the natural waist, but the fuller skirt allows for comfortable room for curves. This should be worn with a strapless bra. Pair this with the Nicandra Drop Earrings by Lulu Frost and you're ready to own the night!

Everyone was wearing long formal evening gowns, so this unique high-low dress really stole the show!
The top was very unforgiving and tight, but other than that, this dress was perfect!

Pretty but slim on top
The lace was not forgiving and since I have thick arms it could not fit. Did not get to wear it.

Couldn't wear it
The dress is fabulous. The material and the craftsmanship is superb. But the sleeves and chest run very small so if you have thick or strong arms and/or large breasts be careful with sizing. I wasn't able to wear it I'm a 36/C

High low dress with pockets, fashion serendipity!
This was a show stopper! Everyone was raving about this dress. The sleeves are totally unforgiving and this is not a dancing dress. The lace detail was beautiful! It was perfect for the unpredictable weather too.

Absolutely loved this dress
This dress is perfect for a formal event where you also want a fun outfit! This dress runs small. I'm normally a size 6-8 and couldn't even get my shoulders through the 42R (size 6). The 44R fit but was very tight in the bodice and shoulders. That being said, it sucks you in and creates a snug waistline. I'm also a short girl (5'4), I wore 5 inch heels and the length was perfect. Also, the dress took two people, so have a friend nearby! I agree with previous reviews about the difficult zipper. All in all, it was a great dress and I received a ton of compliments 😊

Stunning!
I wore this to a ball. I was nervous I wouldn't get it zipped up as the zipper seemed stuck but I did find a trick- pull the inside bottom of the zipper down toward the floor while someone else zips you up and have the top clasp already hooked before zipping. Once on, danced the night away and very comfortable! I also loved that the material did not wrinkle in the bag. We were traveling and at a hotel so I wouldn't have had many options to get it pressed before the event.

Beautiful but didn't get to wear it :(
I was so excited to wear this to my NYE party, but I had to send it back. I was devastated!! I'm a true size 4 and I got a 40. It fit my waist perfectly, but I have a muscular back and arms and it didn't get anywhere close to zipping up. If you are a lady with a smaller upper body, I suggest it. It really was gorgeous!

Perfect HS homecoming dress!
The fit was great, the straps underneath the outer lace were a bit long for me, but some pinning and fashion tape keep everything in place.

I wore this dress to a Christmas Party; I received some compliments and eye rolls. =)
This dress is TRUE to size. It was a snug fit at the waist for me, because of the thick banding used to construct the dress. It was challenging to zip the dress up because of this, however with patience and help from a friend, I was able to get into it. The straps underneath the dress were a little big and couldn't be adjusted, plus the sleeves around the shoulder were a bit tight, I couldn't raise my hands completely up. But other than that, BEAUTIFUL dress! My measurements (since the site won't update my PROFILE!! UGH!) BUST: 34D WAIST: 28.5 HIPS: 38.5 HEIGHT: 5'10 I hope this helps you ladies!!

Perfect for the CMA Awards!
I never would of found this dress without help from Neil, when I visited Rent The Runway’s Style Studio in NYC. While I was initially skeptical on the rack - let me tell you, all of my qualms dissipated once I put this beauty on. I got compliments all night long and even people chasing me down the hall to find out where I got my dress. “Rent the Runway, of course”! I love the high to low look and the lace is so elegant - perfect for attending any swanky event and afterparty. The fit was perfect and with that much fabric on the bottom the cinched waist is a must. If you are debating between two sizes, I sized up for this piece, as the top is a bit small.

For a wedding
The dress itself is gorgeous-very unique. I was most interested in the hemline of it, I wanted to look different, and certainly would have, if it fit. There is ZERO stretch in the lace on the arms. Now, I work out, but I didn't consider myself to have massive arms. I honestly couldn't get the dress past by elbows and therefore couldn't wear it. It was quite a shame, because I could tell the dress was well made. I'd recommend sizing up and avoiding if you have any sort of muscle in your arms.

One of a kind dress! Received compliments all evening!
This dress was over the top fabulous! I received compliments the entire night! Dress is definitely on the snug side - i sized up and would highly recommend doing so. The waistband and underarms are not forgiving, it was difficult to lift my arms because of the tight material, but otherwise loved this dress!

So many complements!
So I really liked this dress because it was unique and very forgiving (don't have to hold your stomach in all night). I am 5'2" and this style works for us short girls because it is still long and elegant but I wasn't stepping on it all night. I gave it 3 stars because the zipper was stuck on the size that I would have worn so I did have to wear the size up. I had to get my boyfriend to remove me from the dress because it would not go up or down. I think I read another review that said the same thing. Also, the black "slip" that is under the lace front was way too loose in the shoulders and kept showing my bra. Luckily I was wearing a black bra so no one could tell but me.

Great food, atmosphere and dancing at a black tie event!
I would have worn the size 38R ( ie size 2) but the arms were VERY tight, so I had to go with the 40R (ie size 4). With the larger size, I had room to spare in the bust as well as the waist but the dress wore very well and is flattering. I would also warn, however, that the zipper is very fussy to zip ( especially through the waistband area) even when I had plenty of extra space. I don't know that this zipper difficulty is typical for this designer but it should be mentioned.

The dress was a show stopper.
The fit was perfect in the sleeves, waist and length. The only caveat was the slip underneath which was too big. However, the netting concealed it perfectly. I loved the dress and it was a huge success! I highly recommend it for semi-formal and formal events. It's perfect for the lady who wants to make a statement and turn heads.

Beautiful gown - runs super small!!!
This dress is stunning - it just runs super small, I am normally a 2 maybe a 4 and the 4 was super tight, couldn't move my arms all night tight. I would recommend going up a size maybe even 2 sizes when ordering this dress.

Gorgeous Standout Dress!
I rented this dress for a wedding and was very disappointed that it did not fit. I knew this was a risk as the dress was brand new (arrived with tags on) and there were no reviews yet. I was able to get the dress on, but was unable to zip it up. My friend tried the dress on before I shipped it back, she is usually between a 2 and a 4 and the dress fit her like a glove. The zipper was a bit tricky with her but eventually it went up (maybe because it was new?). I stand at 5ft 2 and the dress hit the floor like the girl in the photos while wearing heels. My friend is 5ft 6 and even though it was a few inches off the ground it still looked great. I would definitely rent this again in a bigger size.
