Very comfortable! The lace overlay made it sexy, but it was still appropriate for a work party.
The 14/16 was a larger than I expected, almost too loose. I have a large bust, and this dress covered everything comfortably.

Dress was comfortable and looked great!
I ordered this as my back up style (for Kate Unger Blue Beauty dress) but ended up using this dress as it was more flattering on me. I was a little worried about 'filling' the top since I don't have much up there relative to other areas but it looked fine (though I think it would also work well and look very nice if you did have more to fill it with). The dress was also very comfortable and I got several compliments. I would definitely rent again!

Made me feel like a sex-kitten!
Loved this dress!! I had gained weight before renting and was unsure of my sizing and feeling insecure about my appearance. This dress fit so well-was forgiving but not sloppy. I felt beautiful in it and received a ton of compliments. The color is much more berry in person than it appeared on the website--I actually liked it even more in person!! Would recommend this to anyone who wants to feel sexy!!

This was a replacement dress that was overnighted to me. It was beautiful!
This dress fit great and was very comfortable. Other people loved it and I got a lot of compliments. It hit me slightly above the knee.

Flattering and forgiving fit, super comfy as well!
I've been losing a lot of weight, so I guess I'm closer to a 12 these days than a 14 but even so, this dress definitely ran large. The under layer is a very stretchy, very bright "fuchsia rose" color, with an equally stretchy, lacy, deeper "amaranth purple" top layer. I would order a size down for your second size if possible, since the cut and fabric of this dress is very flattering and forgiving. It's very very comfortable to wear. If it came in smaller sizes, I'd definitely order again.

Traditional lace but in a trendy color!
Wore this dress to a graduation event and I was really comfortable and got compliments on the color. I was a little concerned that the dress would be more of a red color, but trusted other reviewers who said that it lived up to its "berry" name. Glad I did -- it was definitely a deeper pink/berry shade but not quite red. It looked fabulous in photos and was very flattering for a larger bust. I filled out the top easily without having to worry about modesty because of the elasticized neckline - brilliant! The sleeves were also great to hide my arms which aren't in tip top shape at the moment. Overall, really happy with this rental and loved how I felt and looked in this dress.

I was so scared to put on this dress. Once I put it on I was so suprised! Permanent customer now.
This dress is lovely! The color is flattering and the length is forgiving! I was able to dance all night without worrying about pulling it up or down! I will say though, it does run a little big! But just a little around the breast area and under the breast. I just fixed it with a black belt. It does snag easily with jewelry. I'm so happy with my rental! I will surely rent again for another big occasion. Maybe I'll rent the same one again! Go RTR!

When my dress arrived it fit me perfectly!!!! Snug in all the right places!! Loose where needed!
For my graduation party from nursing school! I paired this dress with my suede wine-colored Michael Kors heels! Looks like they were made for one another! This was my first rental but it definitely won't be my last! What an awesome concept! No more useless expensive dresses/gowns hanging in my closet! Yay!!!

See below.
I would really give the dress a 3.5 because it was somewhat comfortable but the sleeves where driving me crazy all night. They kept riding up my arm and I hate that. I thought because the sleeves looked long they would have stayed in place for most of the night (excluding dancing of course) but they didn't. The top portion of the dress was considerably big. I didn't mind but thought that was kinda strange. Although the top part was big it stayed in place with no added unnecessary cleavage which was a plus. The length was perfect also. Lastly it wasn't forgiven on the belly region which is why this is the only full shot I got.

Did not wear
Unlike other Igigi dresses, this one did not run large. This dress, like the back-up one they sent, looked like it had been through the wash too many times. Worn and sad. I did not wear it.

Runs large. Too loose. I have a large bust (42 DD) and it was still loose. Beautiful dress. Kind of vintage feel. Berry color. Very comfortable.

I felt great in this dress!
Fit runs a bit big, but I don't think I would've been comfortable a size down. There was a little extra room in the hips and a lot in the chest (I had to pin one side as there was too much material not filled out). It looked fine though. Very comfortable & figure flattering. Nice sleeve length and hem line. I felt classy but not dowdy.

Wore this to an August wedding and loved it. Soft, comfortable, flattering and pretty.
I am typically a 20, even a 22 if it runs small, in dresses, but I read the reviews that this ran big so I took a chance and ordered a 14/16 as well as an 18/20. I figured there was no way in hell the smaller size would fit me... can't remember the last time I was a 14 in anything BUT... that's the one I ended up wearing! The 18/20 was pretty but just felt a bit dowdy with the bigger fit. To me a dress like this should be body hugging. The 14/16 was perfect...fitted but NOT tight (the stretchiness definitely helped). I was also worried that the low cut top would fit wrong or look semi inappropriate (I've got pretty big boobs) but wrong again... it fit perfectly and covered everything. No bra peeking out which is a common problem of mine. I loved the sleeves, found the color even more beautiful and more vibrant in person, and again, was just so comfortable (soft, stretchy fabric/everything stayed in place). I received lots of compliments and am so glad I wore this!

Great color - surprisingly comfortable!
The color of the dress is much more vibrant in person! I went with the larger size so I wouldn't be tugging at the pencil skirt all night but it was loose on top - nothing a little dress tape couldn't help. I usually wear cardigans to cover my arms but this dress provided perfect coverages - got many compliments and would rent again

Beautiful Fun Flattering Dress
I wore this to a wedding, and it was perfect. It definitely ran large, so I'm glad I got my backup in the smaller size. The pink lining is a cotton jersey material, and the purple lace was soft with some stretch, so the dress was super comfortable. I'm large busted, and it fit me fine. The sleeve length was just right. I would rent it again.

Was a little too large for me. Biggest problem was I couldn't fill out the top, but could see this dress being very flattering for someone with a little more up top than I was given ....

It was too wide :( which I guess 14W should have been a clue
It is really pretty and a great color and style but it runs LARGE especially in the top. I am a 36 DD and I didn't even fill it out. I have actually never not filled out a dress I usually have the opposite problem. It is also very concealing but in the hip area where the two fabrics are sewn together it pokes out and adds to your hips. If the top fit better I probably would have still worn it but my husband said it did nothing for me and actually looked like I bought the wrong size. The tag reads 14/16 so maybe it really was just too big. I think it would look great if it fit.

The dress is very comfortable and it's a beautiful, rich color. I received numerous compliments.
As other reviewers mentioned, it runs big. I am a true size 14--I'm normally the largest size in regular brands, or the smallest in plus sized, but I don't usually wear plus-sized clothing lines. I'm not sure if that affects the fit at all, but it was especially loose in my waste area. There is an empire waste though, so it still looked good. It was slightly loose in the bust, but the neckline was so flattering that it was not a big deal at all. The pic I posted isn't super representative of how it looked, The picture kind of stinks haha. I think it was actually much more pretty and flattering in person.

I wore this for my 30th birthday party and I got so many compliments!
It fit really nicely. I'm normally either a 16 or 18 and the 14/16 had plenty of room. The 16/18 was too big. It was also very comfortable. I would highly recommend it!

Loved how this dress made me feel
The dress was slightly a bit roomy, I think if came in a 12/14 or just a 14 would have been a better fit. It just gave me room for comfort. Loved the color.

Very comfortable, many compliments on fit and color
I will say it runs a "loose fit" true to size. Very comfortable, good length right at the knee so you can still wear your spanx, lol. color is very pretty it's a deep red almost plum over bright red.

Very pretty color! Comfortable and easy to wear.
It has a very bright pink underlay which was shocking since the pictures seem more of a cranberry. It was still very pretty and fit well for a formal dinner. I would rent again.

If you are on the shorter side this dress is not a good pick. It runs large and long.

Everyday wearable
I'm pear shaped, so the top portion didn't fit amazingly well. It fell fine, but didn't look as elegant as is displayed. The color also wasn't as vibrant, so it felt a little more matronly than I would have preferred.

Did not wear the dress
I was not able to wear the dress as it was way too big. I typically wear a size 14/16 and I am 5 months pregnant so even though the reviews said it ran large I figured I would be okay, but it was way too big and looked very frumpy on me.

Comfy with a unique color
Wore for a semi-formal daytime September wedding. No one else wore this color! The dress is hot pink jersey-like material with a stretch lace overlay in more of a raspberry color. The material is very lightweight. Both the 14/16 and the 18/20 fit, but I chose the larger size because the dress was just a tiny bit clingy. Very flattering overall. I was comfortable and able to dance. This dress is also great if you are traveling because it won't wrinkle.

Traveled really well and very comfortable.
Dress runs overall very big. I typically wear a 16 and used the 14W. Bust was a little too loose for my liking, but no special pinning or taping needed. Just not as flattering as I would have liked. It was packed in a suitcase overnight and came out perfect and ready to use. Unfortunately I do not have a good picture to share.

This dress was perfect for the fall, evening wedding I attended.
As others mentioned, it does run a little loose in the top, but while the dress is low cut I never felt like I was falling out - the neckline fit close to my chest. I had to do a reading at the church and I felt that I was appropriately dressed. The sleeves were long enough to cover any trouble spots without looking matronly. The color was phenomenal - Perfect for ladies who look good in jewel tones. I was nervous about renting a lace overlayed dress, fearing that the lace would be pulled, but there were no imperfections and the material was sturdy. The thick fabric added a bit of warmth, and also helped to smooth over any lumps and bumps. I did wear some light shapewear underneath, but it was not completely necessary. For some reason I'm not able to select my true bust size, but I am a 42DD. The bra I wore had a slight push-up, and as I mentioned the top fit well.
