This dress hugged my body in all the right places. Unfortunately, because I'm only 5'1 on a good day, it was much longer than I would have preferred but that's no fault of the dress. The thicker material made it great for a night out on my freezing Feb birthday. Highly recommended!

This dress was so fun & got a ton of compliments!!

I loved this dress. I think it was a pretty true to size fit, and it was really unique. Everyone complimented it all night. (I wore it for a night out bachelorette in the city - the bride was in white, and the others were all in black). It's snug, so any undergarment lines do show - I would plan on spanx to smooth everything out to cover any panty lines. :)

Very unique and flattering cut!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This dress does seem to run a little small, but the next size up fit perfectly. The dress is a thicker stretchy jersey-type material and is lined, so it's very flattering. The only issue I had is that the hook at the back of the neck holding the sleeves up kept coming unhooked (I think the hook is bent, and I could have easily fixed it but didn't have the opportunity).

Sexy but modest, I loved it. This dress turns heads left and right. I wore it salsa dancing the length was modest but the back is what makes it sexy and the front is very unique. The only thing is the shoulders were a little baggy, and it kept coming unhooked. Besides that AMAZING DRESS.

I didn't even have to try on the backup size. My husband loved it- a great winter date night dress. The length of the dress may be a drawback if you are petite, but it's a very flattering dress.

Peek a boo shoulders and a dramatic back make this dress sexy.

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Party
Great dress! Hugs your body to create curves for those of us who are straighter. Thick stretchy material makes going braless no big deal, and the shoulders make a girl feel daring and sexy while still staying classy. My only (minor) complaint was that the lining at the hem sometimes snuck below the hem and was visible. I wish I owned this dress!

Fit Very Oddly

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I was unable to wear this dress when I received it. The stomach and hip area felt fine if a bit loose (size 4 with wider hips), the arms were very tight and I have skinny arms, and the sides of the chest were so loose it was indecent. I tried to fabric tape the sides down, but it made it pucker oddly. The back was nice, but the hook at the top of the zipper was hanging on by a thread and made it feel not very secure. Also the material in person was not as nice as I thought it would be. It's a unique and pretty dress but the fit was very unfortunate.

I felt like a million bucks!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress was amazing! The fabric was heavy and stretchy, it felt expensive. It fit great - I wore spanx and pasties and it worked great (you can't wear a regular bra due to the cutouts at the arms). Speaking of those cutouts, I was worried that they would look terrible and that the placement would highlight that little bulge that some of us (who, me?) have at our armpit. Not the case at all, and that cutout is actually really flattering! I do think that the dress ran just the tiniest bit big (or maybe just more true-to-size than most formal dresses which seem to run small!). I could have worn the size 10, but it would have been super tight. I would suggest going against the grain and ordering your second size as a size down for this one.

Its a beautiful dress and very well made however, I am 5"3 and the length was just too long. It felt really matronly and aged me instantly. So I opted not to wear the dress. However, I do think it is a elegant dress for a professional event. I just think its better suited for women 5"5 and above.

I have slightly broad shoulders, which made the neck a little uncomfortable, so I did not wear this for my event. However a sunday brunch, or work party would be a great place to have taken it out.

I am usually a 2 or 4, but the two ended up being a little big. The dress is amazing, very slimming, and gives you a very defined waist while still being very comfortable. The sleeves are very cool and make the dress classy yet sexy. It hits just below the knee and is the perfect cocktail dress. I would definitely rent again!

I usually wear a 4 or 6 depending on the fit of the dress. There was no 6 available so I went with the four. Although it was a bit snug I fit fine and was really comfortable. The fabric is really forgiving and feels great. It is a bit longer than I expected but with heels it looks perfect. I wore this out on Valentine's Day and got lots of compliments! I would definitely wear it again.

It fits true to size, hugs the body nicely but I felt comp;et;y boring in it even after accessories, hair and make up and I didn't wear it. It would be good for a work event or religious event. I found it minimized my breasts also. Large breasted women would feel supported and slimmed in the chest.

Sexy & chic. Wore this to my husband's 10 year college reunion. It was a conservative length and covered the arms, with unique cut-outs to show a little skin in the right places and still be sexy without being over-the-top. Curve-hugging all the way - lots of stretch. All that was available was the 10, so I wore Spanx and made it work. Even though the arms were snug, the dress fit comfortably all night due to the stretch in material. So, if one needed to, I think they could get away with a smaller backup size.

I rented this dress for party and was so sad it didn't fit well, I ended up going with something out of my closet instead. The arm cut-outs contributed to a really awkward fit and created the illusion of fat armpits. The material had more stretch than I imagined but hugged all the wrong places.
