I loved the detailed print and flattering shape

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The material on this dress is thicker and more dressy then some of the other fit and flare black dresses on the site. It was really flattering in the midsection area and the drop waste pleated skirt was really cute. If your bigger then a D, you will need to size up because its more fitted in the bust area. Can't wait to rent this again!

Runs long if you are short!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress actually fit well around the bust and waist, but if you are not 5'7, I think it's a tad long, and it ended up looking too professional or matronly for my event. Unfortunately, i couldn't wear it, but if you have long legs, I think it could be elegantly fun!

The dress is for tall, skinny girls!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I received this dress in a size 6 and 8 and I couldn't wear the 6. I fit it the 8 but the top was baggy and it was tight on my hips. You need to be tall and skinny to wear this one!

GREAT DRESS! Structured, great shape & quality. Small fit in bust.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this dress! Great shape. Very flattering. Structured, so it hid imperfections in the body. It was VERY small in the bust. I'm a full 36B and had a hard time fitting into the size 6. I'd suggest a size or two up especially because the fabric provides no give. I would absolutely rent this dress again. So gorgeous, easy and flattering.

Everything about this dress was amazing. The fit, the design, the fabric. I was a huge fan and would rent it again. It also wasn't too fancy for a less formal occasion, but could be dressed up nice if you wanted it to be more formal.

Loved the detail!

Overall fit: True to Size

Wore for an evening wedding. Pros: Great overall dress for hourglass body type. Form fitting through torso with flared skirt. Cons: Difficult to get over my broad shoulders when putting the dress on. I wore a size 2. My backup size was a 4, which was a little large on the top.

Flattering for any occasion!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress to a funeral--yes a funeral. I had been feeling down and wanted a pick me up to just lift my mood for meeting and greeting tons of people over the course of a very long day. This dress was simple yet stunning in its detail and fit. The 4 was the only size available when I ordered and when this dress is on and zipped up it fit perfectly. However, ladies beware of your hips and your chest when putting this dress on and, especially, when taking it off. The dress is tapered at the waste and that's exactly where the zipper ends. If you have curves of any kind, you will want to order one size up to help prevent a panic attack (no you will not get stuck in it for life). :)

great spin on LBD

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Great dress, lots of compliments, super easy to wear. I had to pull my bra straps in an x across my back to wear a regular bra and you couldn't see the straps. Otherwise you need to wear strapless. I order the 4 and 2, I'm in between sizes normally and they both fit. The two flared out a little funny at my hips so I went with the four but they were both comfortable. I'm 5'5" and wore to a school event and it was appropriate length. Very classy.

Fun LBD

Cute in person but print doesn't come out in photos as well. Flattering for the midsection. Fabric is thick and not stretchy at all so I recommend ordering up.

back up dress - better for winter!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large

This was my backup dress option for a wedding. Went with the other dress. It wasn't the best fit for my petite frame but I did like the fabric. Probably best for a winter event.

The flare style of the skirt makes it fun/flirty, but it's still formalish feeling.

I had a good friend's bachelorette party and we all wore black while the bride wore a bright blue.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress was AMAZING. It's so fun and lively and the details are gorgeous. The photo of the dress is very accurate and the fit is true to size as well. This dress is perfect for a cocktail party or bachelorette trip. It's even appropriate for a wedding with the pleating and details. I wanted to keep it in my closet!

couldn't get it on :(

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
i rented this in both size 4 and 6 and couldn't even get in to either size. it seemed like the zipper just wouldn't go down far enough to create room to get in to it. i know that the fit guide says it runs small and to size up, but i can't believe neither size would even allow me to get my legs through, or over my arms when trying the other way. it was a beautiful dress, so i was sad i couldn't wear it.

Runs small

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small

This is supposed to be my birthday dress. A backup size wasn't available, so I only ordered a 6- my normal size. When it arrived, it was more like a size 2 instead of a 6. I couldn't get it over my hips or shoulders. I had to go to my closet and wear a dress I already owned. It looked like a pretty dress, I wish I could have worn it.

Cute dress, but too large and awkward proportions

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large

The dress was too big in the top and had a much longer torso than I expected. It's a true drop waist.

Fun dress, but runs small

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I rented the 2, and a 4 as a back-up. Putting the dress on was a little difficult because the fabric has absolutely no "give." The "zig-zag" part is tapered in on the dress; so it's a little difficult to get around your shoulders putting on - but I'm also a little broad. The 2 fit like a glove - but the bodice looked weird when I sat down, so I opted for the 4. The main difference to me between the two sizes was the length of the straps - they were a little longer on the 4, which helps if you have a long torso like me. I loved the dress, and it definitely amped up the LBD with the patterned design! The only downside would be the proportions. The "zig-zag" part didn't hit me where it does on the model - it hit me at my waist instead of my hips. The picture isn't the greatest - but it's the only one that had enough light to show the pattern!

Perfect for Broadway!

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Vacation
I rented this dress and the necklace shown for a trip to NYC. I wore this dress to Wicked. I typically wear a 6 and it fit perfectly! I loved the way the dress fit me up top and I got a lot of compliments. I thought it would have been a bit shorter based on the pictures, but It turned out to hit just above my knees which ended up being perfect for the occasion. The pattern of the dress was wonderful, kicked it up a notch from the typical LBD. Loved this dress, would rent again!

I was worried about the fit around my chest...but it fit perfectly. I am a little hippy and it actually slimmed me out and showed off the best parts of me.

Not my favorite

I didn't care for the material or the cut. Made my shoulder look really broad and that is not my shape at all.
