Stand out dress!
So many compliments on the color, the fit, the style. The perfect blend of sexy and classy. I wore sticky bra inserts and with the strap adjustments everything held together fine. I had a no-show thong but once I had everything on I thought it was still too obvious so I just ditched the underwear. Oh well - overall the perfect dress. Highly recommend!

Just didn't do it for me
I thought this dress would be beautiful with the cutout in the back, but the length on my 5'5" frame made it feel frumpy. The color wasn't as vibrant as in the pictures and it didn't look good on my pale skin. The fabric was super thin so every small imperfection will show. I just feel that this lacked a "wow" factor.

Weird straps
The color was beautiful, but fit weird. I have an athletic build and it was loose in the waist and hit area but tight on the back, causing unflattering bulge in my back area. I really wanted to love it.

Breezy, Fun Lilac Dress
PROS: Beautiful lilac color! The cutouts are fun and sexy, but still wedding-appropriate. CONS: Not bra- or shapewear-friendly. Material wrinkles very easily. I had to suck in my stomach the whole night -- the material clings to every trouble spot. Overall, the dress is light and lovely. I'd recommend wearing it if you're comfortable with your body, and have a house or hotel room nearby to touch up the wrinkled spots in the dress as they appear throughout the day!

I got so many compliments on this dress. My husband called it "sexy but sophisticated".
This dress fit perfectly. I am a petite woman, curvy but quite toned. This dress definitely showed off my body and hugged my curves beautifully. My warning is that if you have any curves, this dress will show them. My stomach is pretty flat and even I felt like I needed to consciously hold it taught the whole night. Also, even the tiniest crinkle in your underwear will show through. My advice: wear it (I loved it, and felt very sexy) but be prepared to rock it ;)

Compliments all night!
This was actually my back-up choice, and it fit true to size. A button was loose on the back, but it held together without issue for the wedding! I received a TON of compliments on the dress! Such a lovely color. The material is not super stretchy, but there was plenty of room to move on the dance floor!

I didn't end up wearing this :(
I ended up not wearing this dress because it fit me a little strangely. I am small up top with a small waist and big hips/butt/thighs, and most Halston dresses I am a 4 or occasionally a 6, so I ordered both those sizes. Unfortunately in the 4 this one was too small in the hips and the back strap, and the 6 fit mostly well but sagged strangely in the stomach area (I think it was a little too tight still in the butt). I think if I tried an 8 instead and tightened the adjustable straps to make the top tighter, it would have looked good. If you are pear shaped or just have a big booty, definitely size up so the back strap and skirt area fit. The adjustable straps on the top make it much easier to get a good fit there. This dress is otherwise beautiful and interesting, and I will probably try to rent it again to see if the bigger size fits better.

The strappy back is so fun! I felt very sexy and sophisticated in this beautiful dress.
The dress does run small. I usually wear a 4R, but the 6R fit me much better. The fabric is thick enough that you don't have to stress about wearing a bra if you don't want to. It is a tricky dress to get on by yourself. Tightening the straps took some contorting. Overall, it was very comfortable and sexy, while still being wedding appropriate. I loved it!

Very fun dress! A lot of compliments!
This dress fit perfectly and was the most comfortable dress I have rented. I didn't even need a bra and it held right in all the right spots. The back is stunning and I got so many compliments on it all night!

I received so many compliments on this dress! It was absolutely beautiful!
The dress fit great after we figured out the strap adjustments. This dress was perfect for my husbands black tie graduation dinner.

Loved the lilac
I've actually worn this dress in black and thought I would try something totally different (for me at least) and wear lilac. I love the way this dress crosses in the back (sorry not shown) and it's a great length. I kept the straps tight to support my bust, and fortunately it didn't feel tight anywhere else.

Beautiful, but was my backup
Got this dress as a backup for a wedding. Ultimately, did go with my first choice and not this dress just because the occasion felt a little more formal/conservative and I wasn't sure the open back would fly. Beautiful color, great fit, would rent again for another occasion. A head turner for sure

Beautiful color, but tight!
I read plenty of reviews that marked this as a possible sausage dress. I am almost always between a 2-4, but I ordered a 4 & 6 in this dress. THANK goodness I did that! The 4 was incredibly tight. The 6 was still a little tight, but I think an 8 would have been too loose. The color is incredible - seriously, compliments all night! - but please size up. I would recommend this dress to anyone!

Perfect Summer Wedding Dress
This dress was gorgeous, and the color/ cut was perfect for a summer wedding. I ended up going up a size because my normal size (4) laid a little strangely. The only con was that it was difficult to button (you definitely need someone else's help).

beautiful dress, lots of compliments
fit very well, I'm only 5'1, small bust, was worried that it would not fit well, but the back for the top is completely adjustable. the dress came a little longer than my knees, about 4 inches below. dress still worked out though. lots of compliment. Make sure to use a backless bra.

Felt amazing!
I loved this dress! The color was amazing on my fair skin. I got so many compliments on the color! I ended up wearing the 14, but the 12 fit great. It was a tighter (but still comfortable) around my butt and I didn't have the right underwear for it and I was flying out early the next day. I got compliments all night! It was so comfortable to dance in! I ended up wearing a backless bra. I would absolutely rent this again!

Pretty color, fabulous back and side cutouts!
This was tricky to put on--I did need some help hooking the back straps together--but once it was on it fit well and looked good. People told me they liked it. It is a lovely soft but pretty color and the back detail is very cool--most definitely the reason why I got it. Just be prepared that the back is a little hard to do on your own!

Lovely color for an outdoor, Summer wedding!
This little gem of a dress was gorgeous in person. The color is a bright lilac and the fabric was light enough to survive the heat of an outdoor, Summer wedding in Tennessee. I paired it with black, strappy heels, a simple bracket and studs. I usually wear a size 2, but ended up wearing the 4R because the middle has zero give and no one wants to create back fat. Also, a NuBra is a must w/ this dress. I received many compliments throughout the evening.

Worn as a guest for a friend's wedding--got many compliments throughout the night.
The 4R fit me perfectly. Note: I wore nothing under this dress, but I think it would work with Spanx and a sticky bra if you felt so inclined. When I tried to wear it with a no-show lace thong, the lines still showed in the skirt. The straps on the top are adjustable, so it seems like it would fit a variety of bust sizes. For reference, I'm 5'8", and approx 140 lbs with a pretty lean, athletic build. I'm usually a 2-4 on top and a 4-6 on the bottom.

Wouldn't Recommend
I've rented this dress in two colors now. The black version is AMAZING and I would rent it again in a heartbeat. It fits true to size and the darker color helps hide any flaw. This lilac version runs extremely small, I couldn't even get the stretchy band to reach around my rib cage. Unless you are flawless with a flat stomach, I wouldn't recommend this dress.

Got loads of compliments on this dress! Great color for the summer!
Wore this to a bar mitzvah. It was a little tight and you have to have another person to help get you in it. There is no way one person can do it! I wasnt in love with the crepe material of the dress, I guess I didnt read the description of the material that well as I was in a rush to get something. Once dressed with hair and makeup done, everything looked great. At the event I got tons of compliments.

Beautiful Dress
Stunning dress that received compliments all night long! Super appropriate for a family affair even though there are cutouts. The color of this dress is beautiful and perfect for a summer event. Only reason I didn't rate 5 stars was because you need assistance to put it on which is annoying. Would absolutely rent again!

Pretty color
This dress is cute, but I thought the weird ruching on the band around the back cheapened the look a little. It also wrinkles very easily. I would recommend more for taller women. Size up if you're more than a b cup!

Amazing color, so many compliments!
I'm usually a 4 but ended up going with the larger size so that I didn't bulge out of the cutouts in the back. This dress was very classy and perfect for a summer wedding. It was super comfortable too! The only con was that it was a little difficult to get on, you'll need someone to help you with the button in the back.

Great summer dress!
This is a great dress for an outdoor event in spring or summer. I received tons of compliments from other wedding guests and felt comfortable all night in this dress. The material up top is thin enough that you'll want to use a backless bra, but also fitted and tight enough to help hold everything in place. You can dance in the skirt and the double-layer is thick enough that you don't need a slip underneath. I highly recommend this dress for other small-chested women. It is flattering on a thin figure and accentuates curves.

Got a ton of compliments!
The dress allowed you to change the straps which was helpful throughout the evening. The 6 fit, but the 8 gave me a little extra room. I was able to wear it without a bra which was helpful but I still felt the support. I'm usually very self conscious about my stomach in a dress that hugs my stomach but it stayed flat throughout the night and hid my problem areas.

Pretty color and decent fit
I did not wind up wearing this due to the fit. Great color and style, but one of the straps across the back was elastic, which pinched in an unattractive way. I tried on the 2R and could not have gone larger otherwise it would be too big.

Can't miss this color!
I wore this to my 10 year HS reunion. Overall, I wish I'd gone down to a size 6, which I don't usually wear. The dress showed every lump and bump and I wore a stick-on backless bra, so be prepared for some undergarment preparation. I got lots of compliments on the dress and the color.

Small intimate Vegas wedding in the middle of the red rock valley of fire park.
I wore this dress to a wedding in the Vegas. The back was open and perfect for the hot weather. Overall the dress fit like a glove and the material was very light and comfortable.
