Great dress! Unique and eye catching!
Loved everything about this dress. The bright red color was fun and the front bow design was a unique twist. The length was perfect (right at knee). It wasn't overly tight anywhere, so I felt comfortable to eat, drink and dance. Received many compliments!

Nice dress, however needs constant readjustments
Because the dress is made out of stretchy polyester it fits great, however it rolls up as you walk. I would recommend it if you are going to be mostly sitting. I had to walk back and forth to the restroom with my children so I had to constantly pull it down.

Wore to a Broadway show. Fit well.
Dress had some stretch to it which was nice, the bow in the front wasn't what I was anticipating, but still a pretty dress.

Loved this dress- super comfortable
It is a little large in the chest. I probably could hve worn a 4 but this was my back up dress and I loved it more than my first option

Perfect red dress!
This dress fit perfectly! My dress size is typically a 6 and I wore the 6. It has some stretch, but not much. I was able to dance and have it not fall down, which was great because I usually can't wear strapless dresses.

Cute and comfortable!
I usually wear black dresses but decided to go for some color. This dress was comfortable and flattering. I have a small chest and was worried about it being too big on top but it wasn't really a problem. I got the 4 for a backup but didn't bother trying it. I didn't do any dancing so maybe it would have shifted around a bit? I did eat in it though and it was great for that!

Comfortable but frustrating
Either runs a little big or was stretched out. The bow kind of flopped down at top so I ended up just tucking it into the top. I am bigger in the chest yet still had to pull it up all night. Otherwise it was very cute, and I got a lot of great compliments. Boyfriend really liked it.

Beautiful dress
I wish I could keep it! It fit perfectly, and I got compliments all night. It's a much softer red than what you see in the photos. It still stands out, though. The dress was a bit big in the bust, but fashion tape easily took care of that issue. Also, make sure you have really good fashion tape on hand to tape down the hanger straps. I would definitely rent this again!

The color
The color is a beautiful red and the cut was comfortable. Not a fan of the material (definitely wear spanks to avoid any marks).

Stand out color , beautiful fit.
This was my initially meant to be my back up dress but when I tried it on I was amazed at how well it fit. I was worried that the size 6 may be too small but it fit perfectly. The color is also much more vibrant than the photo lets on. I wore it to a Saturday evening wedding and received so many compliments. I would definitely rent this one again!

This dress fits beautifully. I ended up not using any tape, but it might have helped to keep the dress in place. Generally, I did not have any problems with the dress staying in place. It has some boning that nicely holds up top part of the dress. The red is a great bright red color. It really complemented my olive skin tone. I thought the diagonal bow might look a bit awkward, but it sits just perfectly on the dress. I received tons of compliments and would definitely wear it again.

I really enjoyed this dress and received lots of compliments! It fit snug at the beginning of the night, which is good for a strapless, but stretched a little as the night went on. Also, the straps to hang the dress are black and kept popping up -- I'd recommend fashion tape for the next person who wears it.

Perfect dress for an evening wedding. Color was alittle deeper red than show in the picture. Very sophisticated & elegant. Only issue were the hanger straps showing. However, fit was perfect. Would order again.

I got so-o-o many compliments on this dress! I ordered a size 6 and it was slightly roomy on top (32D) but nothing a little fashion tape couldn't fix. This also kept everything in place so I wasn't hiking up the sides all night! Very class and beautiful color. Has some stretch so fit nicely over the hips. Loved this dress!!

Fantastic dress! It's stretchy so it fits beautifully and you don't have to hold in your tummy all night. I got lots of compliments and it's very comfortable. The only problem was back hanger strap kept popping out. I'd suggest taping it down before you put the dress on.

Amazing Dress
Rented this dress for my brothers wedding, in which I was an usher. I got so many compliments on it! The actual color is not quite as bright as it looks on the model but its still a very bold red. The form in side the dress that gives it the shape and holds the bow sideways is a bit uncomfortable. It was sort of like under-wire poking me in the side all night but other than that I loved the dress! I would definitely rent this dress again!

Runs Large
It was a gorgeous dress; however, it ran very large! I typically wear a size 2-4. I have a tiny waist but large hips. The dress fit well every where else except around my waist, wayy to much extra fabric. If you have a tiny waist i would def recommend sizing down.

This dress made me feel elegant yet sassy. It was the perfect dress to wear to a wedding!
This dress was a show stopper at a wedding! Everyone asked me where I got it because they said it looked so elegant and expensive. The fit was great, and it was SO comfortable. I didn't have to keep adjusting it with every dance move.

Lots of compliments
I wore this to my office Holiday party and got a lot of compliments. I don't have any better photos of the dress, I didn't have my camera, but it was very flattering. The 4 fit better shape wise, but the material was a little pully, so I wore the six, I had to keep pulling the top up, but other than that it was fine. Very festive, and not too revealing. The bow is very flattering.

Pretty with some sizing issues
I wore this for a rehearsal dinner and it was extremely figure flattering. However, it did have some size problems. The bust was loose, I am a 34C and found both the 4 and the 6 to be quite big. Most frustrating was the black hanger straps which spent half the evening annoying me, or just plain sticking out for the world to see. I recommend taping those down if possible, however, you will have to spring for fabric tape as regular didn't work. Other than that, the dress was really pretty - the red was vibrant and the bow was flattering. Lots of compliments, but I wouldn't recommend the dress for dancing, you would spend the whole night hiking it up and then pulling down at the hips.

perfect for engagement party
best dress ever. i am a true size 6 and it fit like a glove for my engagement party. the company was great as far as shipping it on time and it was such an easy return. i am about to rent another dress for the 2nd time using the company and am 100% confident in the company and the dress that i will rent. great fit for a girl with an A size cup, true size 6 and a little more of a butt and thighs type of girl figure. 5 stars!

College friend's wedding where beer was served in giant mugs.
First and foremost, hanger loops!!! Their placement created a lot of frustration for me as there are several pictures where they are peeking out. If you rent this dress, make sure you have some dress tape to stick these puppies down, I wish I had some. I'm not sure where the reviews are coming from that this dress runs big, it does not. I typically wear a 4 and there is no way I could have worn the smaller size I rented based on the reviews. I would say if you are on the bigger chested side, there may be a better pick out there for you as this definitely adds interest to that area. I also can't stress enough that if you rent this dress you will definitely need spanx. While I had room in my midsection, it fit me very clean across the butt and thighs and if you have as much as a slightly raised mole, the fabric will show it. Overall though this is a very classy and pretty dress with a few disclaimers.

I received several compliments in this dress. I felt attractive and one of the better dressed people in the room.
The dress was true to size, be careful though about what your second size is. If you are a heavier size, I'd suggest getting a back up larger instead of smaller. The dress has a little more sheen to it than it shows in the model's picture. There was a tiny pea sized stain on the bow, but it was in one of the creases, so I arranged it so it wasn't noticeable. One of the hanger straps also came broken, but that wasn't an issue. I was at a wedding and danced a lot and the dress did like to slide down some, so I'd recommend fashion tape. The hanger straps also like to peak out (I taped them).

It's a very pretty dress but not a bright red like the image. I was expecting something brighter. I did enjoy the dress anyway.

Was able to rent a one of a kind dress without going broke
I was so happy with this dress! It was perfect for a wedding, and fit very comfortably. I go back and forth between a 4 and a 6, but the 4 fit better on the top. Also rented Kate Spade earrings and Nicole Miller clutch. Will absolutely be renting again!

My bf said there was no way to get a cab on a busy Fri night. I got one in 30 secs in this dress!
Really hugged my curves but had enough stretch in the fabric to move around comfortably. I felt extremely classy but sexy at the same time. I got the most attention in every room or situation. The big bow was a huge plus after I ate a huge italian dinner because it elegantly concealed my midsection. I wore it with black patent leather heels with lizard skin detail and black earrings. I definitely recommend fashion tape and strategically hiding the black hanger straps. They did poke out throughout the night but I think if I spent more time taping and tucking it beforehand it wouldn't have been a problem. Get this dress. It's gorgeous!
