Awesome dress!

I love this dress! I did have to get a sticky cup bra and a tape to keep myself feeling comfortable and unexposed. 5'10 and 145 pounds. The 10 was a little big on me.

After some safety pins , I got it to work

The dress itself is great - very well made and extremely sexy. I am quite busty , so when I tried it on I was spilling out of it . There are only two buttons that hold this dress together , and they are located on the upper thigh. Nothing was holding the top together . I was thinking I wouldn't be able to wear either size , but the next day I tried it on again , with a different/minimizer bra and it looked much better. I safety pinned the top together , and I ended up loving it. This dress would probably be ideal for non-busty gals , because if pinning didn't happen , this dress would not be wearable. I rented this outfit for my company Xmas party , and am normally between a size 8 and 10 .

Sexy and sophisticated

Loved this dress! I wore it for an engagement party. It was perfectly understated. I used fashion tape to close up the neckline a bit because I didn't want to be overly sexy in front of my family. Other than that it fit like a dream and was very comfortable too.

I loved this dress and so did everyone else. It was sexy and sophisticated!

I'm a little small at the top and I wore a backless bra so the top was a little loose. The waist was perfect but needed a little pinning so the dress laid flat in front. I would rent this dress again.

Incredibly sexy, menswear-inspired tuxedo dress.

This is one of my all-time favorite pieces I have ever rented, and the best part is that the only reason I got it was because the option I originally chose ended up being sold out, and this was the replacement I got to pick. I wore it to a private dinner and concert in Miami that my company was hosting. Because of this I wanted it to be sexy and fun but still acceptable to wear in front of work colleagues. This fit the bill completely and had only been a back up option originally. The front slit is a bit high, and I did up pinning the neckline as well, not so much because it was incredibly low, but as others have said the only thing that holds this dress together is a single button so when you bend over the front of the dress comes down and if you don't have a lot going on to keep things in place underneath… Well… The back is a keyhole opening which adds to the sexiness.

Love this dress but runs really big.

I love this dress. Very classy and sexy. I am usually a size 4 and I read that it runs a little big so I ordered a size 2 , but it was still too big in the waist and the arm length. The length was good. I'm going to try the size 0. Hopefully, I'll have better luck.

Made beautifully but I'm too short

I'm not a fan of showing off my back, however I'm very picky with fabric and feeling like whatever I'm wearing was made to a T, this sure is it. If the back was closed and was a bit shorter on me - I'm 5'2 and this was more midi than mini - not the look I was going for. Beautiful dress though!

Business in the front, party in the back

I liked this dress, but it wasn't head over heels love. I felt more comfortable wearing a "bra" of some sort under, but could t find anything that looked good from the back (theres a cutout in the back). Didnt think it was super flattering on my frame. This is probably excellent on someone with curves.

Cool, edgy dress

Edgy styling, runs on the larger side, so i sized down. Im smaller up top, the neckline though revealing, wasnt a problem. And the bottom fit fine through the hips. Asymetric style is cool and open back is sexy.

Meh

I wasn't wowed by this - the fit was off for me personally- but I find a lot of things are because I have no torso- so it just didn't fall right on me- it was kinda big but not..? Loved the idea- beautifully made and I love the combo of materials-

You possibly need to wear boy shorts because there is only 2 buttons holding the dress with a large slit. Other than that it's gorgeous.

Definitely needed dress tape for the top. The material of the dress was thicker so it was perfect for a night downtown where you didn't need a jacket. (Worn in late September)

Beautiful, stunning, runs huge

This was so beautiful!!! I wore it out, for work, for dinner. It's very flattering and the back is stunning. Only con is that it runs huge. I am usually a size 4,6 and even the size 2 was big. Also the stitching on the bottom was a little messed up so I had to do a couple stitches myself to make it even but that was just the one I happen to get in the mail. I would 100% recommend this but do go a couple sizes down especially if you're petite. Will rent again!

Gapped

This was my main dress and I ordered it in a 4 and a 2 back up. I put it on and it was gorgeous but the top layer gapped too much in my busy area. I tried on the 2 and it didn't help anything. I ended up wearing the other dress I ordered. Such a cute dress just gapped too much for me

Boss

I wore this dress to a concert for NYE and it was amazing (and surprisingly comfortable)! I don't normally wear stuff like this but saw it and knew immediately that it would be perfect for this concert. I will say though that this dress is not for the faint of heart. It's showy and a showstopper and when you wear it, wear it with confidence. It really is amazing. I forgot fashion tape to actually tape the dress to me but used a pin to hold it together in front and it was fine. Sizing runs big. I'm normally between a 12/14 but wore a 10. It was snug over my hips but still felt and looked fine. I was able to dance and move around no problem. I used gaffers tape in place of a bra and didn't have any issue with it showing or anything. I would definitely rent this dress again.

Ended up returning

I bought this dress for a governor's ball & it didn't fit at all. I ordered my usual size & the cuts were all wrong & not flattering. The neckline was too low & loose & the bottom had a slit right in the middle of my legs (yikes) maybe would have worked if I got a smaller size, but I would be skeptical.

Sophisticated and sexy. I loved wearing this dress... felt classy yet sexy. Very happy.

I wore the 4 but could have worn a 2. I suggest ordering your normal size and a size smaller. A backless bra is a must. I'm 5'2" so it ran longer on me but that was my preference. The front can gape open if you aren't careful so maybe a little pinning might be necessary.

Gorgeous!

I LOVED wearing this dress. It felt sophisticated and sexy and was comfortable to boot. It’s very low cut, and you can’t wear a bra, but the material is thick and as long as you don’t plan on dancing, you’ll be comfortable. Runs slightly large.

Great dress

I wore this for NYE and loved it! It's classy, but sexy. I did have to pin the front though because the opening is a little low for my taste.

beautiful evening with friends

I have long arms and the dress fit great in the arms. If you have muscular or larger arms will be very snug. The chest opening I pinned a little to avoid any nip slips since the back is out and I wore with no bra. Could have been a tiny more snug in the waist but overall fit great.

The style of this dress is incredibly classy, and subtly sexy.

Loved the way I looked in this (my Husband was very upset I had to send it back..he wanted me to keep it) but the function was a little disappointing. The two main issues - the gapping at the neckline (I am a 34A so no problems with low v's but this was extreme) so I had to safety pin the dress to help it out. An additional button from the designer would have vastly improved the fit as when I added the safety pin the dress looked and performed much better. Also, if you plan to dance -- if you raise your arms, the entire dress will come with you. I wore black tights to make sure I was more appropriate all evening (a work party with a great DJ! One must dance!) Overall though, I would buy this dress.

Overall couldn't wear it.

Was short and low cut which online was what excited about the dress for a cocktail party but once I tried it on it was way to extreme. The skirt was way to short and the top was way to low. The back has this cut out that is matronly in person.

Not for the curvy.

measurements: 34-28-40 This dress did not work for me at all. My fault for not realizing it only has two buttons that fasten at the hip. My larger hips caused this to pull open the front and there was absolutely no way I could wear this dress.

Interesting dress, tricky sizing

I think this dress could be really great, but it was too small for me. I got the wrong size - slim pickings, this time of year - but even at a larger size, it seems hard to imagine how it would fit on someone with a more athletic build. Someone else has noted that there are only two buttons at the hips. While some the other reviewers have made it work beautifully in pictures, I think there must be sticky tape involved in the top section - it's quite loose at the top, and snug at the hips. Given that, I would hesitate to try to rent this one again unless the backup size is available.

Very open bust

This is much more open than what the photo shows. I love the idea of this dress but if you have a bust it's probably way too much chest.

Something different to what I usually wear and was fab!!

Fit true to size but fashion tape was necessary as there are only 2 buttons holding the dress closed. I’m 5’2” and the dress hit just at the knee. It’s also thick material that a bra wasn’t worn and comfortable for a November wedding though the back is open which adds a little sex appeal.

Wore this to a black tie affair- Super Sexy!!!

Fit True to size. I used black duct tape to secure my boobs and it was nicely concealed under the blazer lapels. The open back, deep neck line and thigh length asymmetrical hem show just enough skin. I would totally rent this dress again since I did not take many pictures
