Having the option to get a second size for free was AMAZING. Dress fit perfect.

Size worn: 0R
Rented for: Formal Affair
Ordered a 0R and 2R. What helped me was looking at other girls photos in the dress and comparing their height and weight to mine. I ended up wearing a 0R and it fit perfect. Length was perfect, the fabric was a stretchy material so it was extremely comfortable. Had I been smaller in the bust area, it wold have been a little big up top. But I am a 34D and it fit remarkable. Not one bad thing to say. The 2R fit great as well.. However the length added a few extra inches, so I went with the 0R. It was my first time ordering from here and I will continue to do so, and share with all my friends.

I am usually a size 2 or 4 but the sleeve was way too loose so I went with the size zero. It look absolutely elegant when worn with champagne accessories

Glamour with Comfort for a Hollywood Themed Gala!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Didn't want to send it back!!! The fabric is a very comfortable stretchy material that hugs your curves! The length was perfect for me with 3 inch heels. I went with the 2 to have a more snug fit in the bust, the 4 seemed to be a little stretched out up top, but really I could have gone with either size and been fine! Its extremely comfortable to wear for dinner & dancing all night long! Rent this one- you won't be sorry!

Sleek and sophisticated dress!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I have to say when the dress first arrived, I was concerned about the weight of the fabric and the tight fit. Wearing Spanx was a must. I ended up really happy with the dress at the black tie event I went to. The design made it a lot more exciting than just a black dress but it also allowed me to wear great accessories without being too over the top. I got tons of compliments on it.

Fits great (didn't need Spanx!). You will definitely need a good strapless bra though - I am a 36B/C and don't always need one depending on the cut of the dress, but the shape of the dress looks a million times better with one! Would definitely rent again!

Great for Petites

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I usually am a solid size 2 but often do need to go smaller in dresses due to being petite. dress is VERY stretchy which will accommodate curves. Material is thin, not substantial enough to hide much in the way of flaws. May want to consider shape wear. Length is perfect for shorter girls - I was able to wear only 3" inch heels (I am 5'3") and the length was perfect.

Chic, a bit large, easy to walk/move in.

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved the style; unfortunately the 0R was gone and so I had to get the 2R. The bust was a bit large for me so I had to pin it under the arm (luckily that was hidden by the longer material over the shoulder). Easy to walk/dance in, got a lot of compliments. Note: this will show every line/lump in good lighting when in person, the fabric is stretchy so very comfortable but will show it all. Photographs well.

It fit me well and I didn't have to pull up the dress or make sure it was in place. I am short and it wasn't too long so I could dance all night.

After reading the reviews, I realized it runs big. I'm usually a size 2 but I ended up wearing the 0 long which was perfect!!! The dress was so gorgeous and was perfect for a winter wedding!

I felt like a movie star in this dress! I received several comments all through out the night!

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved the material of the dress. It was nice and smooth. You definitely want to wear spanx and a good fitting strapless bra. The dress was twisting a little bit through out the night. I probably could of worn a size smaller. Also the bust area was a little loose on me. I would say the dress runs big. So if you wear a size 6 get a 4 etc......

I got so many compliments on this dress. It came looking brand new and it was very comfortable!

Size worn: 6L
Rented for: Wedding
I'm 5'6" with an athletic build and normally wear a size 6 or 8. The sleeve on the 6L was a little loose on me but it fit nicely everywhere else. I'm small chested so I chose to wear a padded bra and the top still sort of slid down at times. It's pretty skin-tight in your midsection. The length was perfect with my 5 inch heels. I would wear this dress again in a heartbeat!!

Not what I had hoped it would be.

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Yes, this dress is very pretty and elegant BUT the fabric is very thin and in my opinion a little unforgiving. You basically need a perfect body to wear this dress otherwise any lumps or bumps show. I went and purchased Spanx to help with some smoothing, though I still felt a little self conscious throughout my event. Luckily most of it was seated so I didn't have to worry as much. I'm typically a size 6 but some of the reviews here said to go up a size so I did, I would recommend this, I wore an 8R and couldn't imagine wearing a smaller size in this dress.

I received so many compliments even days after the wedding! Such a fun take on a sexy black dress.

Size worn: 2R
Rented for: Wedding
Fit was perfect. I tried on the 4R in the showroom, I immediately knew I wanted this particular dress after browsing online but wasn't sure of the fit. I ordered both the 4 and 2 and ended up wearing the 2R which wasn't skin tight as expected. It fit perfect. The one thing I wish was different about this dress is the flap that's created by the sleeve not being completely attached to the rest of the gown was a bit annoying. I used fashion tape to minimize it but honestly I forgot about it 10 minutes in to wearing it. Great experience as always and felt incredibly sexy in this dress.

Kinda big around the bust but nothing bad. If you order two sizes I would for sure go down a size. You should probably wear spanx. Dress was so comfortable and I got compliments throughout the night. very satisfied!!

I wore this dress to my Sorority Formal and loved it! I looked sexy and classy all at the same time. It was very easy to move in. I originally ordered a Size 2 but thankfully I ordered a Size 0 as my backup size. When ordering they did not have any Petite but it ended up fitting fine with the heels I wore. I don't have a big pair of twins, so no bra was needed. Both dresses and my earnings came in 2 days before my event smelling nice and clean. This was my first time renting and I was a bit hesitant but I would definitely rent again, great experience.

Made me feel very elegant and fit well

Size worn: 6R
Rented for: Wedding
The sleeve was long and slightly loose. When I received it there was a small little hole in the seam that I fixed easily. I am 5'6" and ordered the regular length which was slightly short with platform heels but would have worked well if there wasn't a platform to my shoes. Overall a great dress and made the LBD have a little edge with the cool neck line.

Rented for: Formal Affair
Warning: unfortunately this dress is made for certain body types. It is tight fitting, so use caution if curvier or a little self conscious. It does run a little large, I am normally a size 2 but was comfortable in a 0. Very comfortable, with the exception of the slit on the leg, which can ride up just a little when sitting down. Definitely recommend this dress!!!

Overall fit: True to Size

I loved this dress, it fit super well and the length was perfect. My only dislike (and this can be prevented by wearing spanx or something) was when flash went off, it was the slightest bit see-through. I think I only noticed because I was looking for it, so don't let that detract you from renting it.

Fits well. The sleeves were a little baggy, but I just rolled mine up bc I already have tiny, short arms. Material does show everything so if that bothers you be sure to wear something underneath to suck it all in. Length was perfect for my heels.

Simple elegance.

Size worn: 0R
Rented for: Formal Affair
The fit was perfect! I tried it on, and it was like it was made for me. The sleeve was a great length, the slit wasn't too high, the length was perfect. I had on 6 inch heels (making me 5'9") and it just kind of swirled above the ground, without the heels on I carried it so it didn't drag. I got compliments on it all night, the simplicity of it made it that much more striking in a sea of bedazzled dresses. It was the perfect prom dress and I'll definitely be renting again.

I truly believe this dress was great for my prom or a wedding or formal affair. The material was stretchy so it was not too clingy to my problematic areas. I could have work the smaller size but I did not. I received many many comments about classy and gorgeous the dress was. The dress is very easy to accessorize. Wish I had the opportunity to buy it so I can have it in my closet for years to come.

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
At first I was a little apprehensive because the arm with the sleeve looked and fit odd. However, upon fully zipped the flap disappeared and the dress fit to a T! I wore the black dress with gold accessories, including gold clutch and shoes. The dress is a little see through, but I did not wear a bra. So it was ok anyway. I am 5'4 and wore 2 1/2 inch heels and the dress fell perfectly. The dress did not drag with the heels on and fell quite nicely. Get the dress. It is a head turner for sure!
