The dress itself was pretty and cool at the same time.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Date
The leather trim, exposed zipper and asymmetrical vent in the back was edgy. The material was stretchy and the seams were flattering. I would have liked it slightly shorter but overall sexy. BUT every part fit great except the back at the shoulders was too bunchy/puffy and I looked like a hunchback. A little tailoring at the neck would have made it perfect, but i had to send it back without wearing it.

Did not wear because bulky and ill-fitting.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This dress was cut in a way that did not flatter the 'perfect' figure it was supposedly designed for—nothing like the fine Helmut Lang dresses I have owned in the past. I have a blessedly small waist, and fortunate hips, but the bulky fabric offered no compliment to these assets—did not hug anywhere, but rather hung. Fabric was bunchy/baggy; I had expected (and was told it would be) more like neoprene. Total disappointment. Did not wear.

Great leather trim details, but too long in torso and hem length.

Better suited for a tall, straight figure.

small in hips

Overall fit: Small

This was a backup dress and it didn't fit over my hips. I'm a size zero, but tend to have a bit of a pear shape. The dress itself didn't have much shape to it. I'm glad it was my 2nd pick. The dress I wore was the best!

Very chic and very warm!

I wore this to a formal awards ceremony my work was hosting, where I knew I would be running around the venue the entire day (both inside AND outside, where it was 9 degrees that day), and this dress worked out perfectly. The material is ribbed and fairly thick, but stretchy, so it kept me warm without restricting my movements. The cutout in the back at the bottom of the dress is chic without being too sexy. It was pretty tight though – particularly across my hips. I wore spanx, which helped, but I recommend sizing up if you have large hips.

Great substitute for court appearances

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large

It runs large and I am renting the size 6... overall, other than the fact that it runs large, the dress is beautiful, comfortable and court appropriate. Edited: I rented size 6 and it still runs large - it's meant for someone taller - I am 5'4 and it fell below the knee and looked too long. Still a great dress but more appropriate for someone tall.

Wore this for a work presentation with a jacket over it and then to a cocktail hour afterwards without the dress. Great fit!

Gorgeous!

I love this dress! It's beautiful and the material is a heavy but comfortable weight. Only downside is the weird zipper in the back. It bunches up and makes a weird hunch back....had to wear my hair down. I gave 4 instead of 5 stars because of this.

Great day to night work dress!

Size worn: 4

Amazing knit dress. Runs large. Is lined so it's not like the stretchy knit hangs on every lump. Which is great! Exposed zipper also a plus. Wore it to work and received tons of compliments which is u usual for a "little black dress".

Not bad, but definitely not awesome.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Dress is incredibly tight around regular size 2 hips. And the whole thing felt oddly padded. When you sit, the dress bunches oddly in the front. Didn't end up wearing the dress. It made me feel frumpy.
