This was a perfect dress for a dinner date. Understated yet a little bit sexy at the same time. LOVED it and received a ton of compliments. Was very flattering and comfortable.

Beautiful dress but runs large

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I ordered a 12 as my back up dress but it was way too big- runs very large. It was a beautiful dress, and longer than I expected. It is very forgiving in the waist and bust area, and someone who is larger in the but/hip area would fit just fine. The draping was beautiful, but just not the right size for me.

Runs Big!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Date
The dress is really pretty but it was a lot longer then I thought it would be. I'm 5'2 and it was just above my knee. The draping in the front could be really flattering on some body types. The dark stripe color is a blackish gray. If you're a true 0 I would pass.

I loved this dress, very fashion-ey and got tons of compliments. It definitely runs one size big (I usually wear a 2 and the 0 was perfect), but the fit is easy. It is a bit short one one side but I'm 5'6" and thought it was fine!

This dress is so beautiful! The color is vibrant and reminds me of the ocean, and the cut and draping of the dress is amazing. I rented the 2 and the 0 - the 0 fit better but was a little on the short side. Amazing dress, can't wait to wear again!

This fabric is so light and comfortable to wear. I wore it out to dinner and for cocktails after at a 5 star resort. Looked great, and was very comfortable to sit and eat/drink in, for hours. It is short and shows off legs and butt very nicely.

This dress accommodated my 5 month pregnant belly bump, and at the same time was fashion-forward. This is a really cool, spunky dress that's great for showing off legs.

loved the dress on the model... but when I got it in the mail it was soooo short I couldn't bend over. also very unflattering on curves, best fit for the short, very petite girl with zero curves.

I wore this dress for my at-home birthday party. My girlfriends all loved the dress!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Due to the reviews saying the dress ran large, I ordered a size 2 and the 4 as my backup. The 2 fit but was a little snug in the hips and a bit too short for my comfort. The 4 probably would have been perfect. I ended up pairing it with black capri leggings, which was still very cute. The top has a beautiful neckline and drape to it. I would absolutely recommend this dress, just be sure you are comfortable with a shorter length.

The dress is true to size. I am 5'4" and 105 lbs and the size 0 fit perfectly. It did not run too short or too long and the draping fell perfectly in place.

Super cute, but didn't lay right on me.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
There is so much draping, and I don't know if it was from packaging or a poor pressing job before sending it to me, but when I got it, the folds and drapes did not fall right. I ended up not wearing it. It is as cute in person as in the picture. The white is very sheer so you need a nude strapless bra. The straps go in a little in the back, racerback would work, too.

Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this dress to an outdoor fundraiser. It was perfect because it was not overly dressy and it was very comfortable to wear. I usually wear a 6, but only an 8 was available. It was a little too big for me, but due to the draping it was not noticeable. The length was longer than I would have preferred on my petite frame, but all-in-all I enjoyed the dress very much.

I wore this dress for my engagement party and absolutely loved it! For this rental, the 4 was not available, but the 6 fit just fine. The only issue was a few small pulls and one small hole in the silk, but that's unavoidable with fabric this delicate. Thanks to the draping and color, they were not noticeable.
