Bold and perfect for spring!!
Stunning gown, I rented it for a Spring Fling gala, and planned to wear it with the Oscar de la Renta Coral Burst Necklace. Unfortunately it just wasn't right for my curvier body type (33-25-35). The 2L bust was slightly too tight, and the waist was way too big. Perfect for a more athletic person. The 0L waist was perfect, but my ribcage was too big. Pockets are amazing! The length was perfect. The bodice has an inside bustier, so that is a nice "perk" ;) It is almost an empire gown. The bodice ended above my natural waist, which I think contributed to the frumpy look it gave me. If I owned this dress, I would need to have it altered a tiny bit. I am honestly tempted to buy it because it is really truly lovely!

Everyone LOVED the way this dress looked. It was kind of amazing.
The size chart recommended I get a long and wear it with 3-4" heels. I'm 5'6" and have never been recommended to get a long of anything ever. I did as instructed and regret doing so. The dress was entirely too long and I definitely should have gotten a regular length. That said, the dress is still beautiful and I felt like a princess all night long (even with the hassle of scooping up the bottom of the dress every time I went somewhere). The pockets on this dress make it extra great.

Wow, I will never buy a dress again. I wore this to my 40th bday (formal affair). Amazing!
I wore this to formal affair; with 4 inch platform heels. I am 5'8, athletic build, and 155 lbs. Fit perfectly.

It was a beautiful dress and came packed perfectly.
I have never had so many compliments about a dress before. It was stunning but way too long. I'm 5'4 and wore 3 inch heels and it was still way too long. I was worried all night about stepping on it so I would recommend being tall for this dress. Even still, it was beautiful.

A gown suitable for The Oscars or Golden Globes!! I received "best dressed" compliments all evening!
Fit like a dream, comfortable for a strapless bodice, and the fabric is substantial and pattern to die for! This dress is a showstopper on its own, or paired with statement jewelry. Hated to place it in the mail to return! Love, love, loved this gorgeous, classically stunning gown!!!

Amazing dress! Received tons of compliments.
The bust runs big so if you're small busted, it'll be roomy. The boning dug into my sides and the dress is long. I'm 5'4" and wore 3" heels and the dress was still pretty long. The pockets are amazing though. Despite the boning and bust being roomy, this was an amazing dress to wear. I'd rent again for sure!

2R is a bit long for me. Beside of that, I love the bold stripe. Fabric is nice and thick. It holds the shape well. Fun and unique dress!

Stylist Review
OHMYGOSH - YES. This dress is about drama ladies! Old word fly-as-can-be drama! Be sure to size up here for your back up. The dress runs basically true to size, but the inner corset can run a smidgen tight. However, for all you fabulous mommies to be, this is baby bump friendly! Even with the strapless look! Winning! And pockets... I mean really. And the flared skirt is so classic and elegant. Pair this look with some showstopper earrings, and we are all set. I am about 5'6", and this dress was perfect with some 3" standard heels. The inner corset also offered plenty of bustline support for me, but you could pair this with a strapless bra for some more "stay put" power.

Beautiful dress with high quality fabric.
Nice, elegant dress that looks and feels high quality. I got the 4L since regular sizes are usually too short on me, but this one was longer than I expected. 5'8 or shorter should definitely go with the regular one. It felt great and I was able to dance all night but when I took it off I realized the built in corset under had been scratching me and left red marks on my skin. Just make sure it's not too tight, going a size up might not be such a good idea since the 6L was huge on me.

Statement dress at a conservative event
this dress is even better in person than it is in photos. It's very well tailored, and the fabric is a thick, high-quality material that actually reminded me of drapes, but in a good way. It has a built in bra and corseting at the top, and pockets in the full skirt. My only complaint is that it is way too long; I am 5'6" and wore 4 inch heels, and yet there was still several inches of fabric laying on the ground when I stood still. My heels got caught in the lining of the dress every time I tried to walk, and so I would have to gather most of the skirt in my hands in order to walk anywhere, which was a bit awkward. If I owned the stress I would have about 3 inches hemmed of the bottom. You would have to be 6 feet tall to have the length work for you. All in all a great dress, though. Really eye catching and fun.

Wore to a black tie optional wedding. Loved the heavy fabric and construction of dress. Inner corset makes it easy to wear without a bra.

Customer service!
The dress was beautiful! If you have a larger busy than this dress probably isn't for you. I ordered a long because I typically need that in most dresses but could have gotten away with just doing the regular length. Great dress for a black tie event!

In a sea of black and blue, this dress is a standout!
I was nervous about the dress being long enough since I'm 5'10, but with the long length I was able to wear 3.5" heels and the dress still hit the floor. Amazing! Classy, elegant, and a show stopper. I can't say enough about this dress! There is a double zip in the back so even though it was strapless I was very comfortable all night. Beautiful dress!

The event was an elegant affair at an incredible location, which was very beautiful on its own.
I don't have big breasts (32C) and the dress was a bit tight in the bust area, but just the right amount so that I felt comfortable and not afraid of any slip ups that are usually associated with strapless dresses. I also had to pick it up when I was walking, otherwise it would get tangled in my feet, but I don't think that that was a big problem. Probably more comfortable shoes like something other than stilettos or even stilettos with straps would have made me feel more confident in letting it down whilst I walked about. But I think that the dress was very elegant and very appropriate for the event. I got many compliments on how beautiful and elegant it looked.

Love, love this dress. High quality fabric and fit perfect...true to size. I wore the 6L with 3" heels. You can wear it with a regular strapless bra, and the pockets were perfect for storing my lipstick and phone. I got so many compliments!

The quality and cut of the dress is terrific. It's rater heavy so it falls just beautifully.
This was a replacement dress and they only had it in Long. Alas, I am 5"6" and it was 8" to long with 4" heels. If you are 5"9" or taller - you would love this dress in the Long.

True to size. With heels on, it was a bit short and with flats on, it was a bit long. Wore a white wrap over my shoulders. Wish I had rented a large, chunky necklace to go with the dress.

Amazing service and a stunning gown
The gown fit well but was extraordinarily long. I am 5' so it is to be expected that a Regular would likely be too long but you'll notice the gown dragged much even with 3" heels. I recommend a petite in this gown for anyone who is vertically challenged like myself. I was offered many compliments though!

a beautiful dress with lovely heavy fabric. I wore it for a black tie wedding & felt glamorous
The fit was fine. The hanger strings attached right at the tip of the bust and poked out a bit all night. I wasn't sure if I could remove them but I wanted to. I'm also 5'3" and the dress is long with a full skirt so I had to hike it up to climb stairs and be careful while dancing. But overall I adored it.

EXTREMELY LONG BUT VERY BEAUTIFUL!
This dress is seriously beautiful - the fabric is very thick and the tailoring is great. It made me look tiny! Very flattering. HOWEVER, I am 5 foot 9 and ordered the 'long' version of my usual size (size 8, which was the appropriate size for me). This was way too long - probably about 3 or 4 inches of fabric laid on the ground and I was too worried about stepping on and ripping the dress, so I didn't wear it! I thought about trying to use fashion tape to temporarily hem the dress, but the fabric would have been too heavy for that. I will definitely keep this dress in mind for my next event - and I'll be sure to order the 8 regular.

Dress definitely stood out at the gala and I got many compliments.
Fabric was heavier than I expected which I liked. The overall fit was great and regular length was perfect for my size (5' 8") with 3" heels. Only drawback was the interior corset boning was painful by the end of the night.

This was or my niece's black tie wedding, I LOVE the look and cut of this dress.
I did not end up wearing this. It was the dress I absolutely wanted to wear but it ran a bit long on my 5'3" frame, and the top fit, but it pushed my chest up and over the dress and made it look like armpit fat - sorry to be gross but you large chested girls know what I mean. A petit might have been better but its a stunning dress. wonderfully made, wish I were a little taller with a little less bosom!

Gorgeous dress- fits like a glove
I wore this dress for a black tie wedding in NYC and could not be happier. It was true to size and the length of the size 2 was perfect for my height 5'5" (though I do prefer my floor length dresses to actually hit the floor) with 3.5-4" heels. The fabric was thick, and high quality, and was perfect for the event. I also did not have to pull the dress up once which says a lot for a dress of this fabric/ cut. I received compliments all night and several inquiries after as to where I got the dress.

nice strapless fit, you don't have to keep tugging and pulling..heavier fabric and longer than you would think, make sure you have high enough heels. Full, fun twirly skirt. You'll need help zipping it! Gorgeous gown.

I got so many compliments on this dress all night! Definitely a show stopper!
Before renting this dress, I showed the pics to my friends and none of them were crazy about it. But I loved it any way, so I wore it and every single one of them said it looked so much better on! It really is an amazing dress. The fabric is great; very well made and so flattering! There's shape wear built into the bodice, so I didn't feel the need to wear a bra or cutlets, but I am small busted. I'm 5'8" and wore a high heel, and the length was perfect, so if you're shorter or taller, I would adjust accordingly.

The pockets were a huge selling point.
I liked this dress based on the colors and the pockets. A dress with pockets is a winner! However, I didn't end up wearing it because it was just too long. I'm 5'10" and ordered the 10L and it was long on me still wth 3" heels. It would have looked sloppy and I would have had to lift the skirt each time I walked. It also had a lot of fabric in the skirt! It would be a good dress for a formal event.

The dress fit well, a little snug because of the boning, but if it was looser it would have fallen.
I don't think this would work for someone with a large chest.

Dresses arrived in time and in great condition.
This dress was AMAZING!!! It even looks better in person than it does in pictures. I am 5' 3" and the 4R was a little long, I did ask two stylists if I could temporarily hem it using the iron on hem tape and they said yes. It took a little while to get the hemming done (had to hem both the lining and the dress) since the skirt is so wide. But it was so worth it, I was able to walk around and dance all night very comfortably. I got soooo many compliments on this dress. The bust area is a little tight, so if you are very busty (DD or larger) I would say to size up. No bra necessary either as there is boning in the just area and also an extra there as well.

Pretty and fun
Loved this dress but it was just a little too tight for a girl with double D's (looks risqué for us heavier on top ladies). I think it would have fit perfectly if I had C's. The material is heavy but lovely. It was really flattering and fun.

Classic, but stands out
Love! So many compliments throughout the night. And, for what it is, reasonably comfortable. I usually wear a 4 and this dress ran true to size. Although I'm sure a range of sizes would have fit. The only area you have to fit is the bodice so if you're bustier than your size usually allows for, maybe go up one. This has a built in inner bodice with boning which basically does all the work of holding this fairly heavy dress up. The boning did leave a red mark by the end of the night, but I didn't expect to be yoga pants comfortable. Because of the inner bodice the dress people see doesn't look like it's really tight but just magically stays up. Pockets you can actually use! The skirt of the dress is full enough, and the fabric heavy enough, that you can put your lipsticks or some cards and cash in there without harming the way the skirt hangs (not always the case with dress pockets). I still carried a purse for my phone. As others have said, this dress runs longer than many. I usually can wear a 4 regular unaltered with a 4 inch heel, and I did that here but the dress still had just the tiniest bit that dragged the floor more than I preferred - just enough to cause a break at the front. The material is very nice, heavy and a bit like drapery but in a good way. No shine in person but in photographs it looks like it is. Photographs very well and stands out without going for bright colors. Paired with the Kenneth Jay Lane Ella Collar and Sculpted Branch Cuff, Kate Spade White Pretty Petals ear pins, and Sondra Roberts Marble Swirl Clutch.

I love this dress - I feel amazing it it. It is a little tight in the bust. It is very long - I'm wearing 4 inch heels in the pictures and the dress still hits the floor. The fabric is thicker and more substantial than I expected.

The Bold and the Beautiful
I absolutely loved wearing this gown. It fit like a glove and stayed in place so I wasn't tugging on the top all night. I also loved that it had pockets. I got so many compliments on the bold, graphic design. Two thumbs way up.

Beautiful dress but didn't work for my larger bust
I loved this dress but would work best for someone with a smaller bust. The material is very heavy so this weighed the top down further and I would have been pulling it up all night. Also the long was very long! Would have required 4" heels at least.

black tie, 7pm formal wedding in NYC - needed something dramatic
built-in boning/corset means the strapless tops stands up by itself - but it does squish your boobs down. Choose a smaller size to help the top stay up. Not a body-con dress in the least. pretty comfortable for a heavier dress. dramatic and formal.

Beautiful dress but too short
I loved this dress!!! it fit perfect and the fabric was gorgeous. The only issue was that it was too short. Most of the other reviews led me to believe it would be long enough, but when I received the dress, it was 4 inches off the ground. I ended up ordered the same dress in the same size, thinking that someone must have been mixed up, but in fact it was that short.

ok this is stunningly gorgeous but it takes a lot to make it work.
If you have boobs, it's TIGHT. There is an internal bra thing that zipps up that makes it somewhat easier to get into. I didn't realize it was there at first and couldn't zip it. Once I zipped the bra, it fit. However it's LONG. I was so desperate to wear it that I overnighted 5.5 inch platform heels and it was STILL too long. I ended up using Nordstrom brand hem tape (highly recommend) and very carefully spent an hour taping up the hem. This ended up working out. It's gorgeous but you ideally you are tall with small boobs to make it work.

Prom
So in love with this dress! I wore it to my boyfriends senior prom and got SO many "best dressed" compliments. I'm 5'5 and I wasn't wearing heels so the dress did drag a little but nothing too bad. Would have been the perfect length if I was wearing heels!
