Back up party dress

I rented this as a back up dress for my husbands company Christmas party. I ended up wearing it to work instead. It's dressy enough for a cocktail party but I turned it into business casual by adding a blazer . Very comfortable and I would rent this again.

Great dress, form fitting

I'm usually between a 4 and a 6, so the 4 was a little tight around my backside. I have an hourglass figure, but thanks to Spanx the dress worked out. If you're between sizes and bigger on the bottom like me, I'd recommend going with the larger size. The fabric has a little stretch and is thin which helps in a form fitting dress like that. I really loved the lace detail and the scalloping on the neckline.

Perfect fit!

I am 5'7" and always wear a size 6. The size 6 fit like a glove. Very flattering. Love this dress! I wore it for my husband's work Christmas party. I would buy this dress.

1940s In NYC

I rented this for a work Christmas party, 1940s themed. Fits like a glove! Unfortunately the original dress I rented did not fit, but I am so glad this one did. Would recommend! Very classy and sexy. Lastly, I am normally a size 4, and I wore a 0 and it fit perfectly.

I wore this for part of a beauty pageant that I took part in. Perfect for interview.

I loved this dress. I have a smaller chest, but the v-neck shape was perfect for a necklace. My bottom is bigger and was really showcased well in this dress. Loved it! Glamorous yet simple!

LBD

This is the first time I rented a Draper James dress and I was really pleased with the quality and the style. The bottom skirt design really makes this dress unique

Cute dress. Basic LBD.

Cute dress. Nothing special. The one I received was terribly wrinkled and last minute so I just wore the back up dress. It would a great "I just want to blend in but look good" dress.

Beautiful dress, little snug

I loved this dress and wanted it to fit perfectly. Unfortunately it was snug in the hips and I had to keep tugging it down. The picture isn't great but the bottom of the dress is so lovely. If I were standing still all night I would have given five starts.

Didn't like the fit at all

Not for my body type. If you are straighter up and down this will probably be a winner, but it gapped in awkward places all along the length of the dress for me.

I love this dress! Feels sexy without being too showy

The neckline is just right and the lace stops it being frumpy as it is quite long.

Classy LBD

Very cute little black dress. I thought it ran a little large, but that made it even more comfortable. I liked the little pop of lace on the bottom. Added something special.

Very nice LBD.

I wasn't sure of my exact size so I ordered a 12 and 14. The 12 was too small but the 14 was comfortable. The material did not have any give.

Would've been better for an evening event

I wish the material felt and fit better. Definitely not a work dress, but since I had an event, I thought I'd try it. Not the right fit anywhere but pretty lace on the bottom!

super solid, if conservative, rental

i really liked this! was the perfect LBD when i really didn't know what to wear to a family bar mitzvah. this renal was an especially good pick as it was a little longer than knee and while it still had a v-neck it wasn't very low. not stretchy, pretty light, very comfortable! I thought the 4 was pretty "generous" size wise, and i wish i sized down for the backup, but it fit fine and was definitely wearable!

Great dress for attending bridal shower!

Enjoyed wearing this dress to my friend's bridal shower! I got several compliments and loved the lace at the bottom & neckline detail! This dress was very form-fitting. I'm currently around 150lb, 5' 4", 34B. I felt like I should have worn shapewear to keep my midsection in check since it hugged all the curves. There was also some strange gapping in the upper back area, as if there was too much fabric there. So overall it might work better for a different body type, but I still had a great time wearing it!

More of a pencil skirt than the picture shows.

I was really excited to receive this dress however wasn't flattering on me at all. I will admit I have a stomach and this was tight in the wrong places and much more of a pencil skirt silhouette than I realized in the pictures, even from others wearing it. The material is fantastic and the lace beautiful. My 4 year old even told me I looked like a princess however I opted to be able to sit and breathe so ordered a replacement. Their customer service with getting a replacement was phenomenal!

Fun but not forgiving!

Beautiful dress - the lace on the bottom is really unique. I got tons of compliments! However, it is very form-fitting - definitely needed shapewear and was self-conscious about my bloat from wedding festivities! If you have hips and a booty, definitely size up!

Classic LBD

I ordered this dress as a back up option, but didn't end up wearing it. Very pretty, fits true to size. The lace detail on the bottom adds a little fun! One plus is that you can wear a normal bra with it. I would recommend!

The fit is for a curvy shape. I have no curves but needed the extra space in the back area to not show any unwanted lines.

Better for hourglass figures

Unfortunately, I didn't end up wearing this dress. I am pear-shaped and this ran bigger in my bust area and smaller in my hip area, and I just couldn't make it work. I think this would be a knockout for someone with an hourglass figure.

This was ordered as a backup dress. I ended up not wearing it because I felt that overall I should be at least 2 inches taller to pull it off well.

A great party dress! Wore this to an office holilday event and it was perfect.

Dress is true to size. I am a standard size 12. As you can see, I am no skinny-minnie. This dress was snug, but not too snug. Wore it with Spanx to smooth out the "bumps" and I was still able to dance with comfort. Great dress and I'd rent it again in a heartbeat!
