Ran super small, didn't wear

This is super cute, but ran super small. I'm typically a 2-4 and got this in a 42 knowing this brand runs small and couldn't zip it up. Will try a 44 or 46 next time.

Didn't fit

Didn't come close to zipping up past my rib cage on the side zip. Runs very small. Cute pattern and nice light wearing fabric though.

Fantastic If you order the right size

I was extremely pleased. Rented this dress for birthday dinner. It's beautiful with buttons and a slightly mesh panel that flutters out at the bottom. I wore a sports bra to get a better fit on top. I have a 32D and can tell if you have large chest it will not do well in this system. I ordered many sizes up. I normally wear a 0 and had an exact fit with no room for error with the size 42. It seems to made for folks with small upper frames. If your bra size is leaning towards an34-36 I highly doubt sizing up will fix the issues. If you are very petite up top please rent you will not be disappointed

Runs tiny.

I'm a small girl but no one way this was zipping up past my chest. Pretty enough but cut tiny and don't bother if you're above a B cup.

Size up!

The dress is beautifully made and such an interesting cut. Unfortunately it was way too tight across the chest for me to wear - I am usually a size 0-2, and rented a 38. The dress length and waist fit perfectly. However, the fit was terrible up top - it was skintight across my chest (I'm only a 32A), and then gaping at the neckline instead of laying flat. I ended up not wearing it as the fit was so poor up top - I would recommend it for those with small chests and longer torsos, and even then you should probably size up 1-2 sizes!

BELIEVE IT - Add 2 Sizes!!!

I saw the reviews, but I thought surely I didn't need to up TWO sizes?!?! Even though I'm a 32DDD I have a petite frame. My rib cage is actually closer to 31" than 32". I usually wear a size 2 or 4, so I rented a 6 for this dress. As you can see from the photo, there was no way this was going to work. I tried everything I could, but it looked ridiculous when I finally got it zipped (major uni-boob). It's such a beautiful dress that I decided to reorder it in an 8. HEED THIS WARNING: Size UP - especially if you're a C cup or larger!

Can't wear it if you have a chest

It's impossible to zip up around the chest. Very laughable. I should have read the comments before renting it. My bra size is 36D.

Bust too small

The styling of the dress is outstanding. It has buttons and a floaty section that is feminine. The waist fit perfectly, however the bust was about 4" too small and I couldn't zip it. Seems like it would be best for women shaped like a tube.

Smallest size 40 I have ever tried!!

I usually wear size 2 and occasionally 4. In European sizes the biggest size I ever wore was size 40. I have never seen such a small size 40!! It was about 3" small on the side, there was no way to zip it up. I don't even think size 42 or 44 would work because then the dress would be big overall.

Lovely Dress, Super Small in the Bust

Listen to all of the reviews - this dress is super small in the bust. I'm a solid size 4 and rented 2 sizes up, but still couldn't zip the dress up over my boobs. If you are large busted, I recommend ordering 3 sizes up. The dress is lovely, so I'm super disappointed I wasn't able to wear it. I just wish this designer didn't hate busty women so much. Maybe next time...

Tiny! Definitely read the reviews

I sized up two sizes but it was still too tight in the bust so did not wear. Beautiful dress, lovely light fabric. If you're a C cup + go up an extra size. I thought it would work because of my small frame. Nope.

Nope

Can't believe this dress is 16k. I looked at the reviews and got 2 sizes up (10- I'm usually a 6-8) and even a backup size 12. The 10 wouldn't zip all the way up and the 12 was too big and lumpy. I'm a C cup, usually dresses tight on the rib cage are fine for me, even preferable, but this is just weird. Also, there are strange button details that you can't really see in the photo, which I thought detract from the style.

So, so small. Order at least two sizes up

It's very pretty and fashion forwards, but absolutely way too small. Not sure who they used for sizing purposes on this design. Couldn't get it zipped up near the chest, and this was for a small b cup.

Stunning

Tons of compliments. Follow suggested size (notes it runs small on other reviews) and it fit like a glove. Very beautiful on and nothing else like it at the wedding I attended.

Great cut. Stunning.

The cut on this dress is just so lovely. Structured and elegant, yet playful and youthful. I wore it to my sister's wedding rehearsal dinner and received so many compliments on it. I absolutely wish I could keep it, but it's a bit out of my budget. The only issue with the dress is that it runs very small. The 38 fit like a US size 2 or even just a bit smaller. I saw feedback that it runs small, so luckily I kept that in mind when I ordered. Will rent again.

Gorgeous.. Rent this dress!!

This dress!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The fabric looks expensive. It is the lightest fabric you'll ever wear! The dress is stunning. It is short but the sash hang is long to your knees. You cannot tell by the picture but the sash is a see through fabric! Sexy! Tons of compliments all night long!

Extremely Small

I was so sad that this ran so small, I will try and rent again but I would definitely size up 2 sizes. There is no stretch to this beautiful floral dress, on top of that it was no where near true to size.😒

Never wore the dress.

I had to return this dress without wearing it. I am 5'4" and weigh 117 pounds. I have consistently worn sizes 2-4, but at the 4, I still had a 3 inch gap in the zipper. I would have needed an 8 which does not make any sense. I wish I could have worn it because it was beautiful.

Stylish, sassy, but small!

Very tight fit through the ribcage. I barely managed to squeeze into the 40 (I usually wear sz 0) and had to be incredibly careful in zipping and unzipping so as to not catch my skin in the zipper. That being said, it looked terrific once on! The draped fabric over the left thigh is different from the rest of the dress and is actually sheer, so adds a real stylish element to the dress. Would rent again, but size up!

Fitted and flowy

Loved this dress but it is tiny. I went 2 sizes up but had to be very careful pulling up the zipper. The fabric that hangs down is silk and is so feminine. I wore this new years eve and felt fab in it.

Couldn't wear this dress.

This dress was beautiful. Unfortunately, it runs very small and I was unable to zip it past my bust.
