Striking Elegance

This beautiful gown has a sleek, classy look to it. Many, many compliments throughout the night. The flexible fabric and high slit allowed for graceful movement . Loved this rental, and intend to keep it in the repertoire.

Sleek, unique, comfortable

This is the most comfortable dress I’ve worn to a formal event. The bow above the slit came undone a couple times but that is my only very small complaint. I loved the asymmetrical unique look.

"Smokin' hot"

I went with a 2L based on reviews (I tend to go with a size 4 for about 80% of styles). It was snug (particularly in the chest and hips), but that's exactly what it wants to be. I felt rather sexy all evening - and so thought my S.O. Sorry for the poor image quality.

I'm glad I was able to try on this fancy, long dress

Very flattering, perfect length with 4" heels. However, I wish the slit was higher. This would look great on a more curvy body.

THIS DRESS IS EVERYTHING!

This dress is true to size. Perfect for any one with an A-C cup. If you are curvier in the hip area, I would suggest going up a size. It is fitted at the natural waist and the slit brings the perfect amount of sexy to the dress. You can wear a standard bra with the dress. Literally my new favorite dress !

showstopper

this dress was a backup to a backup to a backup (no joke) because apparently some people destroy dresses so thoroughly that the rest of us have to suffer for it. anyway, this dress was the closest to the original dress I rented that I could find. I got tons of compliments on it and I really liked it. I could have worn the 6 or the 8 but I went with the 6 because the length was a bit better for me. I'm really small and this dress didn't come in petite like my original choice did. I have a chest and wore a bra but could have gotten away with not wearing one (and I NEVER say that). the fabric had enough stretch to feel comfortable without feeling informal and I had no problems getting into it. I was afraid the sleeve would be too tight, but it was fine. the turtleneck wasn't as hot as I was afraid it would be. the high slit and asymmetrical sleeve were elegant but sexy and as I said, I got a lot of compliments. my husband liked it a lot too and I felt like a bond girl :) all in all, even though it wasn't my original choice and didn't come in petite, it was a great dress for a blacktie wedding and I would definitely rent it again.

I have a large chest, 36dd. Everything but the chest area fit. It's made with excellent material. Gorgeous if I was able to zip it up pass my boobs.

If I could live in this dress I would. I felt secure, sexy and comfortable. This dress was everything!!!!! IT has a built in spandex that holds you in. You don't feel totally "out there" but still sexy. This dress is perfection.

Stunning, flattering and comfortable dress!

This dress was perfect! Received so many compliments and felt amazing. This designer's dresses typically run small, I had to order 2 sizes larger than normal. It fit like a glove though and was extremely comfortable to wear all night. The material is amazing, very flattering dress.

the material is so beautiful. It sucks you in and makes you feel like a super hero. the design hides little bumps and the slit up the front is dramatic. SO so so much love for this wonderful design.

The dress was beautiful, but even the size 6 was too small- it is REALLY fitted.

It is really fitted- even the larger size was too small. This is the 3rd time I have rented from here, and I have yet to be able to wear one of the rentals.

I actually had a man come up to me and tell me that my dress was stunning!

Although it runs true to size there is no room for error. If you typically flux between two sizes go with the larger.

This was one of the most comfortable dresses I've ever worn. Lots of stretch and the length worked with a 4 inch heel.

Stunning, unique gown

Loved this dress so much, as most of the others did. I didn't wear it because it was going to be too formal for the wedding I was attending but I really hope I get the chance to wear this somewhere. Loved the high neck and one sleeve. The one negative was that I thought the torso was a little too long for me. And is wished the slit was a little higher, but that might just be because I'm short. Loved the spanx-like built in slip thing, just made the dress fit perfectly. Definitely rent this if you want to stand out and have people complimenting you all night!

The dress arrived right on time and it fit like a glove to all my curves! Several compliments!

Definitely true to size. I wore about a 3 1/2 inch heel so the dress wouldn't drag. The only con would be that it pressed my chest area a little too much and there was no shape up top. Overall, I was 99% satisfied with this dress!

Stunning!

Absolutely LOVED the dress. It fit a little snug, but the material made it work. I'm super petite- 5'1, so it was a little long for me. My heels were about 4 inches & the dress still touched the floor. But the high split helped. it was the perfect dress for a evening wedding!

Got so many compliments!!

Typically I wear a size 4 in dresses, but after reading about the fit I ordered a 6 for my backup which I ended up wearing instead. I'm curvier but short and could barely get the 4 over my butt! The 6 fit like a GLOVE. My boyfriend was super hesitant about liking the style & 1 arm thing, but he ended up agreeing I made the right choice with this pick & absolutely loved it on me. I had to have him zip me up cause I couldn't do it myself which was to be expected. My only issue was that since I wore my hair down my hair kept getting caught in the top of the zipper, so I was constantly ripping my hair out & trying to fold the zipper in on itself. But either way I definitely recommend this dress. Fit perfect, was so comfy, & I loved how sexy but classy I felt in it! Deff a statement dress.

Elegant and Edgy Superstar

I was won over by how many photos in the reviews consistently showed the renter looking gorgeous. The dress was exactly as I expected: a showstopper. I felt like a supermodel and got compliments reflecting such. It was great for dancing as well as perfect for the chilly weather. The weird bow thing is funky. I wear a size 6 but this was a little small on my ribcage so I went to an 8 and it fit nice and tight. I decided to go with a long because I'm almost 5'7", and it worked pretty well when I had heels on. Still a bit too long. Then when I took the shoes off to dance, I had to hold the dress. But I'd much rather have it too long than too short, as some of the pics looked. The cons for me are only stated so those considering renting this dress have the 411 when deducing to rent it because this dress is amazing! You will look and feel like a celeb in it. I received a ton of compliments and would love to own this dress! If you want to feel like a knockout, rent it!!
