Stunning
This was perfect for a New Year's gala. I love this designer. The dress has quite a bit of a stretch, but is very tight so it shows every curve. I felt a little like Jessica rabbit.

The neckline on this dress is so glamorous and flattering.
The dress is gorgeous - thick and forgiving material. I could probably have sized down for a firmer "hold" but didn't. The length of the regular was perfect with 5" heels - I could walk easily without stepping on the hem. The hem is really nice and swirly, looks very dramatic when you walk. It doesn't breathe particularly well, so be aware if it's hot/humid you will SWEAT.

Perfection.
This dress was amazing. It fit like a glove, the material was so comfortable and extremely forgiving. I was so happy it came in a long. I'm 5'10" and wore 3 inch heels and the dress perfectly hit the ground.

Insanely Comfortable & Sexy
My original rental had a defective zipper and had to be returned. I had to quickly find something else to be delivered the day of the event, which turned out to be this dress. I had originally ordered it in the regular length but after really reading the reviews, I called Customer Service back and they were able to switch my 44R to a 44L with a 46L as the backup size. I am 5'5", 141 lbs, 36 A with a deep rib cage so I often have trouble with dresses not fitting me above the waist. I usually take an 8 in bottoms and a 10 in tops. Anyway, the fact that this dress doesn't even have a closure was encouraging to me - that and the fact that it looks amazing on just about everyone in the reviews. It came at 1 pm the day of the event and it was love at first try-on! It went on without much fuss. I went with the 44R which was pleasantly snug but not very tight. I did need to use hem tape at the front-I taped it up to the side seams and tapered the hem so it blended with the dress' short train. I wore about 3.5" heels. My thought is I'd rather spend 15 minutes with hem tape rather than fret about it being too short, so I'm glad I got the L. The fabric is thick and heavy so probably not the best bet if you're not in a cool or air conditioned climate. The deep gore set in at the back is so much fun and the short train adds some glamour. This dress hits the perfect balance between bombshell and elegance. I got compliments all night long, including several from men who were a little surprised, as I usually have a less sexy presentation. I wore it with a gold-toned/crystal statement necklace from baublebar.com and beige heels/bag. It was also the most comfortable dress I've worn in a long time- I didn't have to think about it at all. I love this dress so much I'd consider buying it and will definitely rent it again.

Gorgeous dress
This dress is true to size, very flattering and absolutely stunning. I was concerned about how this would fit my 34DD bust but the dress left enough room to wear a plunge bra underneath. Fits like a glove, very comfortable stretchy material with enough thickness that it is very forgiving of lumps and bumps. I'm sad to be returning this beautiful dress. Do not hesitate to rent this dress, esp if you are a full bust/hourglass!

I wore this for a gala.
Don't forget to step into the dress. You don't have to wear a bra, I did choose to wear one but it's not necessary. It made my figure look gorgeous. This fabric is fabulous. The bottom has excellent twirl effects (for the little girl in you). If you are shy about cleavage then beware, the girls will be out. I would definitely recommend this dress. Overall if you are shy, pass because this dress will get you noticed.

Absolutely amazing!
Got so many compliments on it! Super flattering. Runs perhaps just a bit short than other R sized dresses. I am 5'3", and was wearing 5" heels. The shoe was definitely visible in front, which usually isn't the case. In the back side less, of course. Loved it totally!

My friends but also how I looked because I felt good and confident, especially bc of the dress!
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS DRESS! Thus was sent as my backup instead and Im glad they bc I got compliments all through the night! It is very fitting, but not suffocating, and the fabric is thick so it smooths out everything and hugs amazing. I wore 4 in heels and I'm 5ft tall and it barely dragged on the ground, but I think it just added to the train better..

Fit to accentuate all your natural curves!
The 38 and 40 actually fit quite similar due to elasticity. It hugs in all the right spots to only accentuate your curves. It's the first time I had a Bootie in a dress!

Elegant, timeless, and sexy!
I wore this to a black tie gala and it was perfect for the event. The color was perfect and stood out among a sea of black tuxes and gowns. This dress gave me shape and was sexy without being too revealing. Also, I am glad I ordered the long because without shoes it just barley touched the floor. Overall, this dress was extremely comfortable, easy to dance in, and made my figure look amazing. The compliments were too frequent to count! Would 100% recommend!

Perfect dress!
This dress is jaw dropping - and so comfortable. It has no zipper so it's a pull over. I'm a 32DDD, 25 waist, 38 hips and a 38 (2) was perfect for me. I am 5'1 and 3 inch heels were dead on what I needed. I wore this all night and could live In it ! No bra or special underwear .

I felt amazing wearing this dress. It really accentuates your curves and the fabric is very flattering. I have a large chest 34DD and I liked that the top of the dress wasn't too tight. The dress was very comfortable and great to dance in! I got a lot of compliments about this dress. Would definitely recommend!

Gorgeous dress but wasn't 100%.
The quality was amazing and it seemed to fit well although the two darts running down the front puffed out a bit which looked funny on me. My friend who is a bit curvier wore it and looked fabulous!

Amazing amazing amazing!
I fell in love with the dress when I saw the reviews and pictures. I was slightly hesitant because it seemed like you had to be curvy (or have big hips or butt which I have neither) for it to look amazing. The dress is literally like Spanx and you can never go wrong. It wasn't too long considering I'm 5'1 but I was wearing 4inch heels. It's simple and elegant - perfect for a black tie affair.

MAGICAL
I honestly think this dress is magical. It was sent to me as a backup after someone didn't send my original dress back in time, and I should really thank that person because this dress is EVERYTHING. As everyone else said, it hugs every curve you have and will make you look like a total bombshell. I am 5'4" and wore 4" heels and the dress was the perfect length. While you don't have to wear a bra with this dress, I did simply because I wanted a little more lift and it looked great. I also paired it with white Kendra Scott earrings and not much other jewelry..you could definitely wear more but the dress itself makes such a statement that it didn't need much. A lot of reviews said it ran small but I think you want to stick to your true size- I rented both the 40R and 42R and went with the 40. I think if you size up you run the risk of it not quite hugging your curves and looking as great as it is supposed to. Don't worry about not being able to get in the dress, there's plenty of stretch so you'll be able to slip right in. I have neverrrrrr received so many compliments on how I looked. If I could buy this dress and wear it everyday, I absolutely would!!!!

Amazing dress! I received so many compliments and it was super comfortable! It's true to size but both sizes would have worked for me. I am 5'11" so the long was a perfect length with 3" heels. Such a glamorous gown! I wish I didn't have to send it back!

Hugged my curves perfectly!
I originally chose the size 6, but wore the size 4 based off of other reviewers mentioning how well it fit. It was snug, but not uncomfortable, hugged my curves in all the right places. Material had a little bit of stretch to it. Only drawback was weird puckering of the material near my hips. Bust 34D, waist 25 in, hips 39 ins. I'm only 5'3" so I wore 3 inch heels so the gown wasn't too long.

This dress is beautiful. It's easy to wear and looks stunning on. The fabric is thick and heavy but stretchy. It hugs the body in all the right places. I think its best for curvy girls. Wearing it made me feel sexy and elegant all in the same time. I would go a size down for the fitted sexy look.

I felt like I was on the red carpet!
I was honestly a little hesitant about this dress - it's a pricey rental and it is clearly an intended tight fit, but my husband convinced me to get it for a gala. It was AMAZING. The fit is perfect (but do watch out for the "L" sizes - I'm 5'9" and had 2.5" heels, but was a tinsey bit long on stairs, etc) and extremely flattering. I was pulled aside for multiple pictures (including a fashion magazine - so maybe remember the designer when you wear it ;) ), and it did very well on the dance floor! I would definitely recommend this dress!
