Beautiful dress, but top half is big

I was in love with this dress in the pictures, but when I put it on, the top portion was too big and did not lay on my chest correctly. I think it ran big. I got a six and should have had the 4, but again I went by reviews. Needed this for an event and was very disappointed.

Eye catching LBD

I ended up not wearing this because it was a tad too tight. I still got a pic in it though. The zipper gets stuck SUPER EASILY. I recommend sizing up for a backup. It doesn't disguise problem bellies very well.

Gorgeous dress

The only problem was the strap behind the neck, it was a bit loose. Overall I would rent this dress again. Loved it!

Sexy LBD

I rented this fairly last minute for a formal affair and didn't want to spend a lot...to be honest my expectations were mediocre but I ended up loving this more than some more expensive rentals. It's sexy and stretches. The only bad part is it does ride up when you walk. I wore a strapless bra because the top was too big without. Otherwise it fit great and I got a lot of compliments.

Couldn't wear due to hem line being a mess

This was my first pick and LOVED the style. Unfortunately, the hem on the bottom of the dress was detached along the front and intact in the back making the dress length look all weird so I was unable to wear it. The dress I received definitely had a lot of wear to it. Was disappointed and had to wear my back up.

Great dress.

You will need a low strapless bra for it to work! But overall very flattering and slimming. Size down if you're between sizes.

Sexxy AND comfortable!

I rented this for a Vegas night out. The fabric is thick and really hides imperfections well. You DO need to have at least a C cup to wear this. Let's be honest, this dress is seriously showing off the girls and although form fitting, not tight. I would absolutely hands down rent this dress again!! I'm 5'5, 170 pounds and the size 12 fit perfect!

LBD with a twist

I received tons of compliments on this LBD. Very comfortable yet sexy and modern. The neck was slightly tight but overall this dress was a hit. I paired with a black and white clutch and maroon satin pumps.

Pretty but the Neck part drove me crazy!

Very pretty dress... lots of compliments. The 4 fit well but was very tight in the chest area. The 6 was huge in chest area and pretty big in the waist. I ended up wearing the 6 because the chest part on the 4 looked inappropriate. The straps around the neck came undone all night. The hooks were loose and wouldn't stay clipped.

Loved this dress. Perfect for channeling a little Audrey. Wore it to a charity event. I'm 5'10", 50 years old, and heck yeah I wore three inch heels. Gloves make this dress imo

Backup dress too big in bust

Such a cute dress but the top was very large/awkward fit. I'm a 34DD. It was my back up and I didn't need it.

Low key sexy but wish it were a tad smaller

I really loved the low key sexiness of this dress, particularly with the criss cross halter. However it ran a bit big in the chest area for me (and I'm a pretty full bust). I also had a hard time hiding my bra (as you can see in the photo). But otherwise, great quality and comfortability.

Beautiful dress but runs large

The fit was amazing on top but it had a sort of empire waist with a long skirt that made it feel like party on top/business at the bottom. I would go a size smaller than normal bc of this. I got many compliments at my function

Sexy yet classy!

This is a tight dress so just be prepared. The material of the dress is thick and with a pair of Spanx underneath you should be good to go! The neckline of this dress is unique and sexy while the length of the dress keeps things classy. I'm a 34C and didn't wear a bra. I would agree with other reviews that the bust area runs a little big - if I wore the 8 I would have needed to wear a strapless bra to fill the space. I wore this to my boyfriend's work holiday party and it was a perfect choice for the occasion. I'll probably rent it again for a wedding sometime in the future. Thanks RTR!

Eye-catching neckline, appropriate for work party

I'm a 6 up top and an 8 on the bottom so I was definitely in between sizes with this one (picture shows the size 6 which I ADORED but the back bent/slit ripped up the seam while I was getting ready!) I wore the 8 out of necessity and still got compliments all night long- stayed in place up top all night :)

Perfect blend of sultry and class, just what I wanted for a date night with my husband to a jazzy symphony performance. Hugs all the right curves and helps skim over those you don't want to highlight.

Perfect Fit!

I was afraid I wouldn't fit in dress as I had gained 5lbs by the time I got it, but it fit perfectly. I was at 5'3" 138lbs....wore a size 6, but if ur top heavy you may want to go with an 8...there isn't much room to squeeze the girls in. Love the material and it had an elegant, classy look to it that would go well at cocktail hour or a company function. Will definitely be renting again for future events.

.

I loved this dress. I would say it runs "slighlty" big. I wore an 8, however I would have preferred a 6 because I like to wear my clothes very fitted. This was a great dress for Vegas. Comfortable, not too short, and looked great!

Cleavage done right

I'm so bummed out I don't have a photo of me in this dress. Lots of compliments from women. This dress really flatters the bust, and draws attention to that area with the dramatic crossover halter. I don't like plunging necklines or things that show cleavage usually, so this dress just has something going on which flatters that area and still keeps it classy (lift/separation, not too much skin). I am a 34 C/D, about 145 lbs, 5'6", athletic. I wore a strapless bra to fill out the chest as I think this dress actually runs large; I wore an 8 but would have been interested in trying on a 6. Bottom of dress was long on me, hit a couple of inches below my knees - not like the photo at all! I also had to make sure that I tugged the dress down to keep the crossover straps from buckling (I used fashion tape). I have a short torso and I think this dress would be better for long torsos. Aside from not liking the shin-length lower half of this dress, it rates 5 stars for me. Part of the reason for this is that it was probably THE favorite dress of my husband's of all time - and I rent a lot of dresses for formal events.

Made for taller women...

I’m 5’3” and curvy. This type of cut is usually great for my shape, but the overall dress was made for a MUCH taller person with a long torso. Proportions were so off I couldn’t wear it.

Super comfortable and flattering.

I loved this dress! The material is high quality but stretchy. Little big on me in the bust area so I wore two bras because otherwise the dress gapped. I am 5'7" so I was very happy that the dress came down to my knees because I wore this to a work event and didn't want it to be too short. Would definitely rent again!

I was unable to wear this dress.

The dress is beautiful so I gave it 5 stars. Unfortunately I did not wear this dress. I was unable to zip it up in the back. I felt like I was going to break the dress if I forced it. I am 5'6", 151 lbs., 34C. Based on other reviews, I thought it would be fine to rent a size 6 but I wish I had gone one size up. Tough lesson learned.

Fantastic LBD

This is definitely a body con dress despite how it appears on the model. I sized down due to the earlier reviews and wished I hadn't. It looked fantasitc, but probably would have looked a little more appropriate for the holiday party I had rented it for had it been a little less tight. Also, as a DD I had a ton of cleavage, which I wasn't expecting based on the other reviews. Definitely didn't need to wear a bra with it. Fell to the bottom of my knees, didn't ride up thanks to the fit and material. Pretty comfortable for how fitted it is.

Simple but elegant dress

This is a simple but elegant dress. When I first tried it on, I wasn't crazy about it (thought it was a little boring), but once I finished it off with hair, make-up, and jewelry, I felt like a million bucks. Dress runs true to size, and fabric is nice and thick. I also really liked the length. Small-busted women might fine that the top runs a little bit large - I had to wear a bra just to give me some extra volume, and even then I had to be vigilant against slips.

Stylist Review

I love this dress by Jill Jill Stuart ! Running true to size with little to no stretch. I recommend wearing your true size for your primary size and going up for your back up especially for bigger bust women. This style is fitted and hugs all your curves. It works best for all cup sizes and can be worn with a strapless or no bra . At 5’2”, the length stops me at knee length and with any color pair of heels and fun accessories will complete your outfit! This dress is perfect for a date night, dinner or party.

Sexy without being over-the-top; unfortunately claustrophobic criss-cross collar

I got this as a backup dress and ended up wearing it out to dinner a couple days after I wore the one that it was backing up. It was snug, but not unreasonably so (it was, after all, post holidays). The only issue I had with it was with where the x hit on my neck: I am very uncomfortable in turtlenecks, chokers, and even t-shirts that hit at the wrong spot, which I should have thought of before renting this dress, but I didn't. As a result, I did spend a portion of the evening trying to rearrange where it was sitting. If I owned it, I would add another small stitch to keep it half an inch further from my throat, but as I didn't, that seemed likely to be frowned upon. Barring that issue, I highly recommend this update on the LBD. As someone who always tries to find the reviews closest to my body type: my measurements are 35-28-41. Happy hunting!

Smooshed my boobs flat

Great design. Material was stretchy. Sexy neck detail with hook eye closure in the back. Smooshed by boobs and made them so flat that I looked very odd from the front and side. Seams on the boobs also made it look like my nipples were pointy.

Tons of compliments!

Fit was definitely form fitting, but fabric is thick enough to smooth. I still wore spanx though. I think it would have been too large through the chest if I had gone up a size.

Super HOTT

If you've got some curves you want to show off this is for you. I rented this dress for my 12 year anniversary--my hubby and I went out for a night on the town with some friends. I got so many compliments. I typically wear a size 8 and I got a 10 as backup. The 10 gave me a little more room in th waist but the top was too big. The 8 fit a little snungger all around but looked better. I'm curvy hourglass shape and this showed it all off. I'll definitely rent again!!
