I rented this in a 0 and a 2 but was unable to wear either. The 2 fit baggily around my torso but was too tight around the arms, so the dress cut into me when I moved around. Another strange feature of the dress is the pair of holes through which the sash is threaded; when I cinched in the sash to give the dress a waist, the holes gaped, revealing two circles of skin at the stomach. Very odd.

Pros: stunning color and I love the pleated detail. the skirt has a great kick to it and the fabric moves well. Cons: I found the holes through which the sash was threaded to be a bit odd. When cinched to the front, the back flows wild and free, which means that to the back it just hangs like a pleated tent. I ended up unthreading it and cinching around the waist to show off that I have a shape. and because of the pleats it made me look heavier than I am. This dress was a size 4. In short, this dress doesn't do body shapes any favors. I think this would look just LOVELY if I had a body like the model.

Lovely color. Only to be used by stick thin figures, otherwise it tends to look like a tent. Not a good fit for woman with chest.

There is only one word to describe this dress: frumpy. I am usually between a 4 and a 6 and the size 4 looked huge on me due to the amount of fabric. I agree with another reviewer that this dress looked like a tent. I could not wear it as planned.

Loved this dress! It's pretty tight and fitted around the top, so beware if you're busty. Hit a little above the knees, flattering with the belt tied!

Pretty Color...

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The color of this dress is a very beautiful deep purple that's richer in person than in the picture. The fabric is nice and light, but there's way too much of it for the dress to be flattering. I could not wear it to the holiday party I rented it for, and regret not getting a backup dress.

This is a super cute dress and the color makes everyone smile! Wore it to a friend's bridal shower with black heels and a long gold necklace. I could eat, sit and dance comfortably. However, it fits tight in the arms and I would recommend tying the sash around the entire dress vs trying to put it through the holes on the side.

I wore this dress for my bridal shower. It was super cute and I got lots of compliments. I usually wear a 0 and this dress seemed true to size except it felt a teensy bit tight at the neckline but still fit. Would definitely recommend!

Beautiful color, even better in person! The dress was true-to-size everywhere except in the bust. I don't even know if someone with an A-cup would've felt comfortable in this dress. It was SO small at the top and I ended up not being able to wear it to my event. :(

The color was spectacular, the dress was meh.

Overall fit: True to Size

I loved the color of this dress and received lots of compliments on the color. That was, by far, the best thing about it. The chiffon was light and airy. But... it just wasn't very flattering. I'm not a stick, but I'm not wide either and this dress made me look wider than I am. I had hoped that the long pleats would elongate my frame, but instead the dress billowed at the belt and I looked short and thick because it drew the eye to the middle. I would recommend this to a tall, svelte person where the pleats could hang uninterrupted.

This dress is a beautiful, deep purple. The pic doesn't do it justice. However, I found the fit overall unflattering. The tie came farther up my torso than on the model so it made it more like an empire waist, making it feel like a maternity dress. :( I wouldn't recommend for large chests.

I rented this dress for a banquet with my boyfriend, and meeting his family for the first time - perfect dress! The 6 was huge so I'm glad I did the 4 backup - fit perfect. The only thing I disliked about this dress is the belt runs through the inside of the dress so your skin shows a bit on the sides - I found this really odd, but couldn't figure out a different way to wear it without belting it all the way around, and then you lose the "cape" part.

Gorgeous dress for a special occasion

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was amazing! I wore it for my pharmacy school's white coat ceremony. It's incredibly comfortable and easy to wear. The bust was snug but not uncomfortably tight. If you're going to wear a bra I recommend a strapless. When I tried it on with a regular bra the straps kept showing. I wore the belt all the way around my waist. You can do the belt just in the front for the cape effect but I preferred having the entire waist cinched in. Either way, it's a great dress for a special occasion.

The belt feeds through holes in the side of the dress. I have a size 0 waist and am fuller through the hips. When I tied the belt tight, there was gaping at the sides of the dress so you could see my skin peeking through the holes. Dress also photographed sheer! Would not order if small waist.

This was a great dress, wore it to chaperone a prom. Very chic and youthful, but still mature enough that I wasn't dressed like one of the kids. Saw that some wore it with the belt wrapped all the way around, but that was too simple. I loved the back of the dress and I love how comfortable I felt in the dress. The "cape" was the best part in my opinion.

Bright fun dress

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress was a little on the short side for me, and the color was brighter than it comes across in the photos. This was my back up dress, but I ended up having two events in two nights, so I wore it. It was a lot of fun, but for pear shaped girls, I don't think it was quite as flattering as one might think- especially not at the shorter length. There is a lot more fabric than what appears in the picture, and the area where the belt goes through you can actually see skin. You can also wear the back more like a cape, which is nice and I ended up doing that to get a couple of extra inches in the back.

I rented this dress from the store in Las Vegas. I had already picked another dress for the event I had in mind, but the color of this dress was so pretty, I rented this as well. I wore for a night out walking around, and it was perfect for it. Very comfortable. I will say that I did not wear it the way it's intended to be worn. The cape look was not for me, so I wore the belt around the whole dress. I had also rented a Kate Spade necklace to wear with my other dress, but it was so beautiful I wore it with this too.

I love the style that lets you choose whether to wear as a cape or normal belted at the waist. I've worn the dress both ways, and it's easy to accessorize with your own belts and different colored sashes.
