Beautiful dress and comfortable too!
I really loved this dress! The material is stretchy, so it's comfortable to wear and dance around in. The color is even prettier in person and photographs quite well. I would definitely recommend it!

Danced all night in this gorgeous little number!
Amazing color in person, flexible body con style fit perfect for curves, was light yet still supportive enough to wear with a slip instead of a bra, ruffled slit on side road the sexy-yet-classy line perfectly!

Fantastic, comfortable dress for a wedding
This dress was wonderful. It was even more gorgeous in person than any photos and made me feel amazing. It was a little loose around the chest (I have a smaller chest) and I was initially worried about it falling down but with a strapless bra and gaining comfort in it, it became clear it would not. Love this dress and would wear it again/recommend to anyone.

Not what I hoped for...
Dress is on the lightweight side and runs large on top. I am a 34D and the 6tall was too big at the bust! Had to send back...but the color was lovely!

Stunning color and great quality
Wore this to a wedding and got compliments all night! Color was stunning and the overall cut of the dress was very flattering. The fabric itself had plenty of stretch to it and was neither too thin/thick, but thin enough to need seamless underwear. Like other reviewers have mentioned, the sizing is a bit large in the bust area. I am normally a size 6, and I was able to fit in both the 4 and 6, but went with the latter to make room for wedding cake consumption. I have a pretty large bust (32DD) and the 6 was still a bit big. I constantly had to adjust the dress and pull up. The 4 fit more comfortably, but showed a bit too much. As for the slit on the left leg, I didn't have a problem with how high up it went. I am 5'5" with a long torso and this dress hit perfectly mid-calf. Paired it with nude sandals and soft gold accents to balance out the cool-tones of the dress. Great price point for the quality- this dress is one of my favorite rentals thus far!

Beautiful dress with great fit!
Rented this dress for a friend's fancy-themed party. The fit was better than expected, as it was form-fitting but still had some comfy stretch. The color was unique, and I got a lot of compliments on it! And the slit was here high but not too high. Granted, it might have been too high for a wedding or something. Overall for the party though, this dress exceeded my expectations.

Really beautiful dress.
The dress was a bit tighter than I would have liked. Thankfully, I had rented another dress as well and ended up wearing that one to the wedding. This dress was absolutely beautiful but just a little too tight for my comfort.

Perfect dress for Hawaii wedding!
Wore this dress to a golf course wedding on Maui. It was absolutely perfect for the setting and occasion! The slit is high, but the dress is so beautiful that it's still classy. Slim fit - meant to hug your curves. This dress made my boyfriend's jaw drop haha. Would definitely rent again!

LOVE LOVE THIS DRESS
Loved this dress! The slit is not as revealing as it appears on the model. It does run a little large in the chest! Otherwise, true to size. I am 5, 5' and weigh 115 pounds and went with the 0!

Time with loved ones :)
This dress is absolutely gorgeous and it fit like a glove! I personally loved the way it felt, fit, and looked, and I received compliments all night long! I cannot recommend this dress more highly. My experience with Rent the Runway was perfect, as well. Everything arrived on time, everything fit perfectly (and there was a complementary back-up size in case of any flukes!), and the return process was a piece of cake!

So beautiful & perfect for curvy gals
I'm petite but have a large chest and wider hips--this dress was actually my backup dress and perfect for the wedding I attended. It's really forgiving, too, which is nice for those of us without flat abs! I wore a bustier underneath (which really accentuated the hourglass look). I got compliments ALL night. I can't rent it again because this dress was unforgettable (and I took too many pictures in it ;-)) but I DEFINITELY recommend it!!!

Lovely but doesn't lay flat!
This dress is beautiful: the color, the ruffles, the shape is so flattering and I didn't find the slit to be too high. But I just couldn't get the dress to lay flat on my body, especially my chest. Every time I moved the dress would bunch and I had to keep fixing and tugging at it. Didn't end up wearing for that reason. I am curvy so I suppose it might work better for someone with fewer curves?

Gorgeous fit, had a little give to it after wearing it for about 30 minutes which was appreciated. It you're flat chested, have a bra handy or it will gape.

The wedding was gorgeous and I loved the compliments I received!
The top fit perfectly and it was surprisingly easy to move in! I was worried about the hips being too large because of my build but it was fine.

Absolutely loved this dress! The fit was not only amazing, but it also gave me a noticeable waist!
The slit was very sexy and not at all too high. Perfect for a wedding guest.

Lots of compliments!
I wore this for a coworker's wedding and it was perfect! The slit felt sexy, without revealing too much (my bosses were there). The lilac/periwinkle really lent itself to a fun accent color (I did pink shoes/nails/lips, gold jewelry).

Great fitting dress! Didn't have to pull on the top to keep it up, stayed in place, even while dancing! Very comfortable. I would suggest spanx underneath as the slit does come a little high, especially when you sit down. Received a lot of compliments on the dress!

Dress was very stretched out
I rented this dress in a 0 and 2 (although I am normally a 2/4) because some of the reviews mentioned it had stretch to it. Even the 0 ended up being too stretched out (especially in the waist) to wear comfortably- I would have been pulling it up all night. I ended up wearing a different dress. It is possible that others could receive a less worn version, but I would proceed with caution. (For reference I am 5'5", 115 lbs.)

Sexy yet classy
I felt great in this dress! Loved the color and got several compliments. The slit made it feel sexier. I'm a 34G bust and the top was actually a little loose on me, so those with a small bust might want to size down.

Elegant and comfortable.
Rented this for a vow renewal. Dress had a good bit of stretch. Was form fitting but flattering and comfortable. Formal enough for evening reception/dinner and dancing but ruffles add a little fun and color makes it perfect for summer.

Many compliments!
This dress was great. I got so many compliments on the dress and the color! The slit was very high just like others had said but it wasn't much of a problem as long as you make sure you are aware of it:) I normally wear a size 0 and dresses sometimes run a little big so I didn't opt for a larger size. The 0 was perfect and I would recommend to anyone.

Sleek and tasteful
This dress was perfect! I was nervous about the fit but the material had the perfect amount of stretch to tastefully hug my curves! I could have worn the 10 but wanted a little bit of extra room so I could get down on the dance floor. I can't wait to be able to order a dress from this designer again, could not have been happier.

Dress was perfect for the occasion. Only things I would suggest are spanx and a sweater if you are wearing it to a church. Received a ton of compliments and am already looking for another event to wear this dress to.
