Pretty dress
Very pretty dress, I had ordered the 2 and 4 but unfortunately the 2 wasnt available the day before the wedding. Regardless I wore the 4, it was a little big for me and I was pulling it up half the night. I think if I had the 2 it would have been a beautiful dress!

Very pretty dress - beautiful color - but it's very short.
The dress looks short in the picture but I'm only 5'4" so I figured it would be a little longer on my body. I was not able to wear this to the charity function I rented it for. This would be a great party dress for a young girl.

Simple yet Elegant
Loved! The dress is so simple but the color gives it the WOW factor we all hope for when we wear a dress. I rented this for a night out on the town with the girls but i think it would be a great date dress too. Absolutely loved. And the fact that the dress was flown allowed me to eat and not worry :) The only complaint I have is that the dress I received had a few snags, other than that, two thumbs up.

Loved it!
I normally wear a size 4 but wore the 2 in this dress... it does run large. The color is also a little darker than pictured, I was expecting more of an ice blue than a turquoise, but it still a gorgeous dress. I wore it to dinner for a girlfriend's bachelorette weekend and it was perfect!

I loved the dress so much I bought it online after I rented it!
I was very disappointed that the size 0 arrived with 2 holes in it that had been sewn shut, but were still noticeable. Due to lack of other options I wore the dress anyways and despite feeling self conscious about the condition of the dress, I absolutely loved it.

For me, this dress was too short to be comfortable. Didn't end up wearing it. Cute design, though.

Pretty dress - runs big for its shape.
I was very disappointed that I wasn't able to wear this dress for my summer graduation party. Most of the reviews that I read said the dress ran very small and short, so I ordered a size up in a 6. I really should have gone with my gut and ordered my regular size because I looked like a sack of potatoes in the 6 and it barely stayed up (I am not very big up there but still!). I would recommend ordering your normal size or even a size down if you are like me and have small waist, stomach, and average-size chest.

This dress was amazing!
The color is much better in person- a deeper blue. It was super super flattering- especially around the middle! It WAS quite short, but I'm 5'9 and still wore it to my sorority formal!

Pretty color, cheap material
I was a little disappointed in this dress. The color was really beautiful for a summer wedding, but the material was cheap chiffon-ish overlay and it came snagged in places. Definitely order down--it runs big and the only place it's secure is around your bust, so you want to make sure it feels snugly.

The number of compliments I received on the dress/necklace combo were fabulous! :)
The color of this dress was fantastic, and the length was perfect for my petite frame. It was a tad bit baggier than I would have liked, but very cute overall

Gorgeous color, flirty length - perfect party dress!
This dress was so delicate and gorgeous but also so fun and flirty at the same time. I loved wearing it and I got many compliments on the color and fit. I wore it to a concert in Vegas and then out to the clubs - it was the perfect combo of glam and sexy.

I had girls in Charleston stop me on the street and tell me how cute the dress is!
I absolutely LOVED this dress! I got stopped on the street with compliments and all of the girls told me at the fraternity formal how much they loved it! I am 5'6 and wore spandex shorts under it because I knew I'd be dancing. The cut doesn't look short, but when I would bend over, I am definitely glad I wore spandex shorts! I have a smaller bust and was pulling it up a lot while I was dancing, but they sent fashion tape (which I should have used). It does come with a thick wire-type bra on the inside to hold up the sweetheart neckline. Overall, I am so glad I wore this dress and it was SO comfortable!

Love the necklace you wore with this. Where did you get it?

The color and comfort of the dress was wonderful. It was simple yet elegant and I got many compliments.
Dresses usually run a bit large on me, so I wasn't surprised when I got this dress that it was a little big. All I did was pin it back a little in the back so that there wasn't as much fabric and it looked perfect. It would have been great if this dress had come just one size smaller, but after I pinned it the dress looked great! I rented this for prom and in all of the pictures we took you couldn't even tell that I had pinned it.The dress is a lot brighter in person than it is in the photo. I got many compliments on it! It is a very simple, yet elegant dress. I would also recommened getting double sided tape. Because the dress was a little big on me, the top was loose and the tape definitley helped keep it in place! Overall, I would definitley recommend this dress, it is very beautiful and comfortable! (I also rented the Ciner Antique Crystal Fab Drop Earrings and they were perfect! Beautiful and lightweight, i DEFINITLEY recommend them!)

Wonderful dress for summer
This dress does have a lot of extra fabric, I would normally have ordered a 0 but this was a last minute rental and there was not one in stock . I wore a pink belt with it that gave the dress some shape. Even though the dress is pretty short, I think it is made for someone a little taller, the extra fabric swallowed my smaller frame. All that being said I did recieve a ton of compliments, it was light and airy for a hot day, and the color is beautiful.

Runs a bit large.
I rented this dress is two sizes (6; 8) for a bachelorette party in Vegas. I did not end up wearing either size, because they were both too big and were not very flattering. It may not have been the right occasion for this dress, but I wasn't too thrilled with it either way. Very pretty color though!

So cute, but too short!
I rented this dress to wear to a dinner party on my birthday. It was so cute, but when I tried it on it was WAY too short to wear as a dress. Would only recommend this dress if you are 5'4" or shorter! FYI the color is also much brighter than pictured - more electric than sky blue. Very pretty.

Cute dress
I wasn't able to wear this dress because it was too big. I'm petite and it looked like a sack. I think the concept is great and if I was taller I think it would've looked spectacular.

cute
Dress is very cute but a much deeper color than pictured. It also runs large at the bust and is very very short. I got it hoping if I could not wear it then my daughter would for an event we were both attending. She is 5'8 and it was much much to short. Pretty but dress seemed a little on the worn side should probably be discounted for rental.

Dress came in time and I loved being the only girl not wearing black out to dinner!
I wore this for my anniversary as well as dinner with the girls the next night. It was perfect for both occasions, LOVE the color. I am 5 months pregnant and this was very flattering for my fuller figure. In fact, I barely looked pregnant. I usually wear a size 2 or sometimes a 4 and wore a 4 in this so I would say it runs large because if I wasn't preggers size 4 would have been too big.

Fun dress!
This dress was so cute and easy to wear. I ordered a 2 with a 4 back-up, hoping that he 2 would fit and I would not be overwhelmed with too much fabric since it is such a flowy dress. The 2 however did not fit my 34DD bust, but the 4 was perfect. Plus, the dress was not too frumpy, as I was concerned it might be. It was a perfect mini dress length and I had fun wearing the dress with tall fuschia wedges. The blue is such a pretty color, and was easy to accessorize.

I absolutely loved this dress. I rented it for a weekend getaway / pre-wedding vacation in Miami.
The color is absolutely beautiful. In terms of fit, this dress is perfect for those who have large bust with small body frame because the top part seems slightly larger than most other strapless dresses.
