OK

Material is ribbed! Can't tell that from the photo but it's ribbed velvet and the little lines in between the velvet are see through. The dress is longer than on the model. Came to my ankles and I'm 5'3". This made the dress too formal looking for just a cocktail party and more "black tie". Boob area was weird for anyone with larger than B cups cause they are kind of smooshed in that little band at the chest that's loose. The chest does not have any support, but sticks out from the body awkwardly. I wanted to love this dress but sent it back without wearing

Amazing dress but see thru

I absolutely loved the cut, open back, and velvet ribbing of this dress. Unfortunately i felt that i couldnt wear until it was dark out because it's definitely see thru! Also i imagined it would hit me as a midi dress but it was basically full length.

Perfect Velvety Material

This dress has the perfect slit! It could be see through if wearing in a bright place, because it's rubbed and between each rib there is a semi-see through strip. Completely unnoticeable really. But I almost didn't rent this dress because someone else said it was see through. Have no fear! You would really have to be looking very closely or be standing behind the sun to see through. Easily one of my favorite rentals. Because of the velvety ribbed material you could dress this down and wear cute flats. I dressed it up with heels and a fur coat and it was a complete showstopper. Very comfortable. You can adjust the straps if you want more coverage in front. I've got a larger bust and wore it pretty loose on top. It isn't floor length, so if you're y'all, and I tend to wear heels - it will only be ankle length.

Stylist Review

I love the velvet and 90's vibe from this style! Running true to size, I would recommend getting your usual size as your primary and going one size up for the backup size. The stretchy fabric allows for comfortable room in the midsection and definitely comfortable room in the hip area as well. This style is great for any cup size and can be worn with a strapless bra. This is a floor length dress so if you are around my height, 5,4, I would definitely recommend going for the regular in regards to length. Again, I am obsessed with the super soft material of this dress. I would pair this with a pair of black heels, pretty, delicate jewelry and a metallic, fun handbag.

Shear material

This dress was a mess coming off the hanger. The straps are little strings that cinch in the back and look like they could break at any moment. I was expecting a luxe velvet material, but the pattern is a thin striped velvet that is see-through. No way was I wearing this in public.

Great winter wedding dress!

People said it was see-through, but i had 0 issues. Fit perfectly, especially for those who don't need a bra!

Simple and Elegant!

The fit of this dress was perfect. I am very petite and the length was just at my ankles. The velvet ribbing made this dress look super elegant. The only small critique I have is it was slightly big in the chest area since I have a small bust. Loved this dress and would highly recommend!

Got this dress to wear to a concert on Valentine's day, but did not wear it.

The dress itself is very pretty and fits true to size, however the fabric is thin and see through.

(Have not chose if I will wear this dress yet or another one)

I love this dress a lot. Its fit on me is different than in the image because I am shorter than that model but on my body it comes down to a bit below my ankles and it looks nice when I wear heels. The slit does not go up my thigh as high as on the model too, but I still really like this dress. Just a fair warning, the top has very little structure which I am fine with but it's also hard to wear a strapless bra because of the open back. If you're down for no bra or a sticky bra, then you are good to go.

Weird chest

The straps and fit of the chest are weird, it is see through as other users have mentioned but not too much of a problem. Did not end up wearing this one

This just did not work out for me.

This was just as see through as everyone else said it was. Not a huge issue if you are sure there won't be any backlight type scenarios. The dress also did not hold its shape at all, and while the flowy bottom half is really flattering, my boobs were just too small and the top looked awful. I got both an XS and a S and both of them just didn't cut it.

Fits so perfectly!

I ordered this dress as a backup and when I received my dresses, although I really loved the original one I was going to wear, I tried this one on and fell in love! This fits so well and accentuates all the right places. I wore it to prom and got compliments all night. Wish I could keep it forever!!

RENT THIS DRESS.

Wore this for my 30th birthday party at a bar on the lower east side. I LOVED this dress. Can't stress it enough. It's so flattering. The material is so soft and the ribbing gives it a little something different than the standard black slinky dress. The medium and large both fit, but I ended up going with the large because it was more flattering around the stomach and the open back. The tie situation in the back is a little tricky, if you have someone else there to assist that helps but you can def do it yourself anyway. Not something that bothers me, but you can't wear a normal bra with this. I didn't wear anything but otherwise you'd need the stick-on type. Considering buying this one since I got so many compliments. 10/10

It’s the perfect dress!

Wear a slip or something under in the sun, no issues in the evening/night

Loved it so much I bought it.

Looks amazing on. It is adjustable in size in the back and the slit on the side is amazing.
