Draping is really flattering, wore it around the city and it wasn't uncomfortable or anything. Really great

The dress is beautiful, but they really do mean it when they say it's best for a small or medium bust. The dress did not flatter my body shape at all - 34c/d with wide shoulders. However, my friend wound up wearing the dress; she is about 5'6 with a slim body shape and no curves; the dress looked fantastic on her.

The dress is very pretty--great fabric. the blocking of the 2 different fabrics makes your shape look wider. I'm very petite and fit, but the dress made me look wider. didn't wear the dress.

Great for sorority semiformal!

Everything about the dress was wonderful. The black parts have a little bit of stretch to them. I rented a 2 and 4 and didn't recognize much difference between the sizes. Even with a larger bust, the dress still fit well.

Unique and super flattering

Overall fit: True to Size

This dress was perfect: the stretchy side panel on the skirt and chest kept this so comfortable to wear (sit down and dance in). The neckline was at a good level and straps were very comfortable too. Would definitely rent again!

Not a home run..

I rented this when one of my outfits did not fit properly. The 6 was too big & the waist on the 4 was still very baggy & is quite bunchy & IMO, does not lay attractively. I agree with another post - it does add thickness to an athletic or hourglass frame. Would drape better on C cup or smaller. D & up may experience the boxy effect. I did not end up wearing at all.

Very versatile piece.

A bit loose in the shoulders and bust area -- probably meant for someone with a longer torso. But overall, very flattering and comfortable to wear. It bunches in all the right places.

This dress fit amazing and the color blocking made it even more interesting to look at.

Rented this dress for day one of my birthday celebration. I rented both the 4 and the 6. The dress fits VERY tight and could not even get the 4 over my hips. So if you are curvy I would make sure to go up a size as a back up. Other than that- the dress was great. I wish I didn't have to give it back!

perfect to look killer but not too ott

Fit me true to size- I'm usually right around a 12 with a fairly athletic/straight build. Rented it for Beyoncé and got tons of compliments all night, plus it moved enough to be comfy to dance in all night! The statement necklace really topped it off.

I love that the tight skirt showed off my curves but it was looser through the waist.
