Wore this for my birthday in Atlantic City. I ordered the 0 and the 2 and it was really hard to even tell the difference but I decided to wear the 0. It fit like a glove, was comfortable the entire night, and I would totally rent this again.

I'm usually conscious about my thick upper arms. I'm not sure if it's because how the sleeves are cut but I was really comfortable to show my arms as you can see in the photo! I felt like a million bucks :)

The dress is pretty. I really like the top but I have mixed feelings about the bottom. The short side is very short, I would not wear it without opaque black tights, and the long side sometimes stuck out a little in a weird way. I like that it's different though.

I got TONS of compliments when I wore this to a company Christmas party. The fit is a little snug around the arms and chest especially, so the size 2 was my choice (over the size 0) It was flattering without showing skin :)

My guy friends who are used to seeing me in everything from sweats to Friday-night outfits told me that I looked absolutely stunning. My beau couldn't stop staring.

This was a great New Year's Eve Dress! My birthday is New Years Day, so I wanted something bright and sexy and this fit the bill! My only comment is if you are built like me you'll definitely want a size up. I'm 5'10" and built athletic and usually wear a size 4, but for this dress I needed to wear the 6 because it runs a little short and tight across the chest.

I really liked this dress. It is very tight fitting so beware! I wore it for my 24th birthday and got raving reviews and compliments on it. Everyone wanted to know where I got it from. I think anyone who orders it will enjoy. The only thing I found a little off about the dress was the way the longer side poked out at times, but other than that, I will be ordering another dress from here really soon...I'm in love!

My sister won Best Dressed with this dress

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
My sister wore this dress to a family reunion and won a Best Dressed trophy for it. The dress looks better in person than in pictures and the dress fit perfectly. It was like a spandex/stretchy material but comfortable. I believe that the material is thick enough to hide any "flaws" that you want to hide like your stomach but thin enough that it doesn't make you look big. I would recommend getting an extra dress a size bigger than your usual dress size just in case.

The dress does run small but the difference between sizes is not immense. I got the 0 and 2 and ended up wearing the 2. Other reviewers are also right about the longer "tail"side flipping out a little.

I am busty for my smaller frame. I was able to get it zipped, but it was a squeeze. They were out of other sizes so I just went for it. It was comfortable all evening. I also didn't like how dark it was in an already dark party room.

Dress hugged all the right places, however I did have to order up a size. The dress rode up a little, but then again I was dancing the night away. Everyone loved the dress and kept saying "wow!" My only con is it made my chest look like pancakes.

I rented a 0 and a 2 for my birthday but they were both too tight. Unless you have a perfectly flat stomach (I thought I was pretty close to one but I guess not), this is going to bunch and be too tight.

I am 5'1 and very petite but have curves. I weigh 100 lbs. I rented the small and XS. Neither fit at all and were both extremely short. I think I would have at least needed a medium but overall I think this dress is simply not for people who have curves and would look great on someone who has a very straight thin figure.

a little to snug

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Vacation
The dress looks amazing but sadly it didn't fit and they didn't have the next size up. the fabric is such a fun color but doesn't offer alot of stretch. Since I''m on the bust size and have some hips(but wouldn't consider myself as someone who has large hips) the dress didn't fit. And they didn't have the next size up. If you have a body type other then straight and narrow you might want to go up a size.

awesome party dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I rented this for my work holiday party, it looked great! (also, looks better in person, honestly.) it was SUPER tight and I usually wear a 0 or 2 max but wore the 4. I also paired it with some comando tights for a natural slimming effect. The seams around the arms were a little weird on my dress particularly that made it come out a bit but it was really only noticeable to me. a really fun dress- just make sure to size up!

Beware, this dress is very short on one side. The silhouette is really flattering and sexy. The dress is stretchy, but still runs small. The 2 was wayyyy too short. The 4 fit like a glove.

I loved this dress - from the asymmetrical hemline, to the edgy color, it is unlike any other dress I've ever worn. Got tons of compliments! Wore with big black heals and a black bracelet - I didn't wear tights, but I like how it looks with tights.

I loved this dress because it is very unique and if you work out, it shows a tight tummy and toned arms. If you have any areas you are hoping to conceal...this is not the dress for you. It is very form fitting and has NO give. Unfortunately, it was too small for me to where and my backup size was not available. I am normally a 0 or a 2 but needed a 4. I am renting the 4 for a future event and can't wait to wear it!

LOVED this dress, got lots of compliments. I had a Vegas-themed party and had nothing to wear. This was fun, great for dancing, perfect for the occasion. Only issue is that it DEFINITELY runs small. Luckily, I got a size up for free (which was still tight, but fit)... saved me. definite recommend.

I ordered this dress using the same-day NYC delivery. The delivery went very smoothly and the dress came in a hanger and was in excellent condition. This dress was very pretty, but runs extremely small. I was under the impression that I ordered a back up size, and then it was sent without a back up so that made things a little tense when I had nothing to wear in the last minute. I couldnt wear the dress and had to return it.

I LOVED this dress! Definitely recommended for smaller busts (I am a 34A and I was comfortable) and must be alright with a slightly tighter fit, but this dress fit me like a glove! It accents all the right places, and it makes you legs look magnificent. I loved the fact that it didn't slide or move at all while I walked or danced, no complaints at all.

I ordered this dress in my normal size 4 and it was skintight and incredibly short on the one side. It barely covered my butt. I'm only 5"6 but I do have long legs. I think this dress would only work for shorter or very slender women with no curves.

Rented this in my normal size and could hardly get it on. Super tight in the bust (I'm a 34DD)- felt like a sports bra. Hips were snug too but would have been workable if the top fit. Had to return it. Pity because the color was gorgeous. Definitely not recommended for larger busts.
