Beautiful dress & material. Looked very high end.
Received so many compliments on the dress! Fit was not great, this dress is not made for a pear shaped figure. It was roomy in the bust and tight on the hips. Wish it had fit correctly, I would have been more comfortable.

It was perfect.
It was very fitted but I had read the reviews on it and knew what to expect.

Too tight everywhere and couldn't wear - otherwise a beautiful dress.
For the first time, I couldn't wear a dress due to fit! The good news is I knew Christian Siriano tends to design for very thin, curve-less women (not me), so I had a backup dress which I wore instead (Halston Heritage Blush Impact Dress). I literally couldn't even get the 4 over my thighs/hips/butt. I would like to note that while I'm not a stick, I'm petite and athletic (I have a very muscular lower half from running, weightlifting, and dancing). I can't comment on the fit up top since I couldn't get the dress that high. What I can say is the material itself is beautiful and it's clearly well constructed. The polka dots have a slight sheen to them, which adds visual interest. The fabric is a bit on the heavy side, but it didn't feel like anything that would be too hot in the spring/summer, especially because of the cut. Also, the top of the slight was ripped slightly, so it looks like someone else had trouble getting into it as well. If you have the body type that Christian Siriano designs for, go for this dress because it is beautiful. If you have curves or an athletic figure, stay away - or if you MUST rent, size way up (I'm usually a 2 or a 4 and like I said, I couldn't even get the 4 over my hips).

Unique cut and fit like a glove
I'm typically a 4/6 and the six hugged every curve. The reviews were dead on for this dress....the front slit was high, the top fit larger busted women well and there's no give in the fabric. Definitely order a size up, just in case. The cut of this dress was unique and overall it was a classy dress that stood out in a crowd. Thumbs up!

The dress is beautiful although the sizing is off.
I went up in sizing based on the reviews. I normally wear a size 4 or 6 depending on the style of the dress. The size 6 was too tight and the 8 fit okay on the bottom but the top was too big on the shoulders and left too much room. If I pulled the dress down for the shoulders to fit appropriately, it didn't fall at the waist where it should so unfortunately I could not wear the dress for Mother's Day.

Pretty pink fabric
I liked this dress on the hanger, but I have to give it 2 stars because I could not sit down in it without the slit completely opening up and exposing too much. Even when i walked I felt that I was showing too much thigh. I wore it to the KY Oaks race and basically had to have something on my lap when I sat down. It also runs small so size up. Otherwise the top cut of the dress and peplum is cute. I paired it with RTR accessories. Kate Spade “Put a Bow on it” Necklace and earrings and the Ben-Amun Coupled Pearls Bracelet. I also rented the Franchi Coronation Clutch which all coordinated perfectly. It was too cold that day to take off my jacket, so I only have this picture.

The fabric & construction of this dress is gorgeous. However, it runs REALLY small!
The fabric is thick & sumptuous in person, however the design by the waist doesn't allow you to pull it on easily. Add that to the fact that it runs REALLY small. Definitely size up. Maybe even 2 sizes.

Perfect for a career moment or a formal affair!
I loved this dress. It did run a little small, (I can go anywhere from a 0-2) I had to size up to a 4, but that's fine. Once i got my size right I was in love. The dress fits you so well and gives you such a feminine shape thanks to the peplum. The material is thick and well made and the polka dots are subtle, giving the dress an overall pale pink appearance. Overall I love this dress and I would love to rent again!

the rental experience was flawless, however this dress did not work.
the fit is very small in the hips and baggy on the top. the material is very very thick - reminds me of an old tapestry. both sizes the slits were already frayed. very disappointed with the dress.
