Great even for a September wedding in the MTs
I have never had so many compliments! The 2 was too small on my belly and I felt a little self conscious. The 4 was a little big in the bust but not annoying. I have rented over 10 times and this is my fav dress thus far!

I absolutely loved this dress!!
I would definitely rent it again. I'm a size 10 and the 10 fit perfectly. I loved the material too, it was very forgiving, stretchy but not cheap stretchy. I could dance and nothing fell down. It was very comfy. The color was perfect too. Overall, I was extremely impressed with this dress and got tons of compliments!

Great dress!
I loved this dress and the rich blue color. I ordered the 6 and 8. There was not much of a difference between the two as there was a lot of stretch. The only reason I went with the 6 was bc the top fit better and I was able to go without a bra. Fantastic, figure flattering dress!

Perfect for a late summer/early fall wedding!
Per a previous review, I rented this dress for a wedding hoping it wouldn't be too short. It was the perfect length! I tried both the 0 and the 2. While both were pretty snug to zip up, I went with the 0 because the rest of the fit (around my top and hips) was much better.

The dress and color was beautiful, I received so many compliments!
I loved this dress! My only comment is that the bust was a bit too large. The 8 fit but looked a bit tight around my hips so I went with the 10 only to not fill it up. Other than that the dress was gorgeous. The detail in the back was beautiful and I received so many compliments. It goes well with a tan. I will definitely rent this one again for a summer wedding.

Beautiful color!
Dress was beautiful - I have rented in the cobalt and red! I am short, only ~5'1 so the length was perfect for petite ladies. The material is thick and the silhouette very flattering. I would definitely rent again!

Super cute and bright!
Absolutely loved this dress. I wore it to an outside wedding. It was very hot outside and it was a form fitting dress but I got so many compliments. I would def rent again! Didn't even need to wear a strapless bra which is always a plus.

The service and prompt delivery.
The fit was great. I opted to size up so I would have room for dinner, drinks and desert without feeling to self conscious as the night went on. The material was nice as was the overall quality of the dress. My first time renting and I would recommend!!

Perfect dress for a wedding
Fit very well everywhere except up top. I had adjust it several times throughout the night. I felt a 2 would have been too tight but a 4 was a bit loose for me

Cute dress!
I didn't wind up wearing this dress to my friends wedding. Her dress code was a lot more casual than I thought, so this dress would have been too formal. The color is beautiful and the size was good, but fit very snug in both sizes. I would say this dress is perfect for a wedding whose dress code is cocktail!

Cute dress for date night!
The size 6 fit perfectly. Gave me a little more room in the thighs than the 4, but I still had to tug it down a little when standing up from a chair. Top stayed in place really well due to built in corseted boning in the dress. Got lots of compliments even just out at a restaurant. Sexy but not over the top. I was worried front ruffle would make me look big but it finished at the right spot and you still see your torso from the side.

Comfortable and received many compliments for the fit and color!
I usually a size six but sense I have a bigger bust (34DD), I opted for the size eight. I did not have to wear a bra but I did wear fashion tape to keep the dress from falling down. It was super comfortable when I sat down. Amazing color.

I wore this to my cousin's wedding in MD (hot and humid) and this dress was perfect for it!
I expected to wear the 4 since that's my normal size, but I have a small chest so the 4 was a tad too big at the top and around the stomach. The 2 fit perfectly! I didn't have to pull it up all night and the fabric used is thick enough so it's very flattering. The length was perfect- not too short, not too long. The top is also very flattering for those of us who aren't well endowed! Color was vibrant. I would definitely rent this dress again.

Top too large, too tight on rear
This dress was not meant for my body. It runs very small for someone with a booty, and was very large in the chest area. I'm a 36 C and the top was falling down, but was very tight in my stomach and rear. I felt self-conscious all night. If you're busty with a small behind it could work.

Beautiful color and dress for a summer wedding
I loved the color and the fit. It was perfect for a hot summer wedding. I didn't end up wearing a bra with it because the back was so cute and didn't want it to show so the top was a little bit big on me (I am a 34C) and had to keep pulling the dress up. Otherwise, the size was great fit everywhere else perfectly. I would recommend this dress for sure!

Not suitable for hourglass shapes
Love the dress, color, and fabric but it was not stretchy and did not work for an hourglass shape. It was incredibly tight in the hips and bust while fitting loosely in the waist. Normally wear a size 10 dress and even the 12 was too tight in the hips to wear.

Beautiful blue color that's perfect for a summer wedding. I'm an 8/10 but went with the 10 because it fit more comfortably. I'd definitely recommend it!

Great bachelorette party dress
Wore this for my best friend's bachelorette party. We went with a "bright colors" theme, and this dress fit the bill. It's a great color and fits well, just a tad short.

The color is stunning!
This is a beautiful dress with a gorgeous color that pops when you walk into a room where everyone is wearing the typical LBD. The back gives this dress a little something extra. It fits like a glove....everywhere but in the chest area. I have a small bust (34A) and this dress felt pretty loose in that area.

I loved this dress! The color popped and it wasn't the average strapless dress.
This dress was perfect for a summer wedding. It was comfortable and I ended up not even wearing a bra with it. The back is very unique and I loved the fit. It can be dressed up or down and is very versatile in its functionality. I am usually a size 4, but ended up wearing a size 2 so I recommend ordering a size down as your backup. I highly recommend!

AmaZing dress! Did not need a bra which was even better, it was the perfect length- I'm 5'1 with a bigger booty and was worried it would make the dress look a little too tight/not wedding appropriate but was perfect for the occasion!

It was a little loose in the top (I wear 36D) and a little tight in the thighs. I usually comfortably wear an 8 in everything. Still looked good.

Top too big for me.
I didn't end up wearing this dress bc it was too fitted around the hips and I couldn't keep the strapless part up (to loose) my alternative option arrived in time and made me very happy. I'm pear shaped and maybe this dress just wasn't meant for my type.

I wore this to my best friend's wedding and got lots of compliments!
I would say that the fit is pretty true to size. I usually have issues with dresses being too tight up top because I have a wider back, but I found that this dress had a lot of breathing room. I wore a sticky bra and even then it was a little loose. It was very fitted around the waist and getting the last inch or so of the zipper up was a challenge! Overall, I was very happy with the dress. It was fitted, but comfy enough to sit down and dance without an issue.

This dress definitely runs very, very large. If you generally wear true 0, this will likely not fit you well. I had to hold mine up with sticky tape and it still was just visibly too big for me, but I had no other dress choice. The color was very nice and I think the length and shape would've been flattering if it was avail in a 00.
