Super figure flattering dress!

I loved this dress and got so many compliments! My promotion was being announced in front of my whole company so I wanted something pretty and flattering to wear. This dress was it! Perfect for work and looked beautiful. Not only did people complement the dress at the event, but I even got emails later commenting on how pretty the dress looked! Will definitely be getting this one again! I found the fit to be true to size. It is very body conscious, but that is the style. Only small issue I had with it was the zipper was tough when it got to the waistband. Very minor issue, just needed a little help when it hit that spot.

LOVE this dress, runs soooo small

i LOVE this dress and if it fit true to size it would be a 5-star review for sure. i felt like the 10 fit more like a 6 and the back zipper wasn't even CLOSE to being able to be zipper. otherwise, beautiful silhouette of a dress, loved the structure of the fabric and the hemline and the neckline and the sleeves!

Long day of work it was on my doorstep! Threw it in my suitcase for my early flight

Loved that it fit my waist. Very snug fit and great pencil dress! The zipper was not fun. Only complaint. It was hard to zip up when it was on the hanger.

The online help I received was amazing!

I usually wear a size 4. This dress runs very small the 6 was too tight across my back. The style was perfect!! I wish the 8 was available for me to wear. Maybe next time!!

Classy dress for work

I ended up loving how this outfit came together but there are a lot of "fit" issues resulting in my three star rating. First, i usually wear a size 0 or 2 and i could barely zip the size 6. I'm also slightly taller than the average woman and I feel like this dress is a few inches too long beyond what would look best. Also, this is so tight in my boobs but i needed a belt because around the waist it looked loose and made me look like i had no curves. It's a little difficult to take anything but very short steps. Ultimately, with the right belt and accessories, i really loved this look though!

Runs SO small

While I think this dress looked good on, it was so tight. I ordered this as a back up dress so I only got a size 6. The skirt part is long and form fitting through the knees so it is very restricting. The zipper is also a pain to get up or down as it got stuck along the seam below the bust. The material is thick so it does hold everything in, but it is just not comfortable to wear. Definitely size up!

Perfect for work, elegant cut, runs small though

The dress is even more elegant than shown in the picture, the cut is classy and elegant. I ordered 8, but couldn't zip it up at all, runs very small - order at least 1 size bigger than your usual, if not 2 sizes

Tight squeeze but worth it!

I followed the advice of other reviewers and went one size up. I should've gone 2 sizes up. I had to hold my breath to zip it up but the temporary loss of oxygen was worth it! It hugs you in all the right places and the length makes it appropriate for work. Will rent again in a size 8.

Definitely order one size up! Or two!

I am not one of those people who pretends they can fit in a smaller size dress. I wear a 4 in dresses, sometimes 6. (I actually wore a 2 in the Kate spade dress I ended up wearing.) Never an 8. This was super tight and unflattering in the 6-- Truly I could barely get it on. I know it supposed to be body conscious- I was expecting that. But this wasn't pretty. :) too bad bc the fabric was rich and structured and I liked the knee length pencil skirt. Classy and chic.

Classic elegance

Loved this dress. I typically wear a 4 and this dress was snug in a 6. Love the maxi length and interesting cutout on the chest that gave it a little extra something! Wore it to work but can be worn anywhere. Nice thick fabric. Will rent it again.

Weirdest fit

This dress had the weirdest shape. My body did not line up at all with its shape I.e. Waistline and hips in a weird spot. Dress has zero stretch so it either fits or it doesn't. I could not zip the dress up more than halfway. I'd recommend this for a very petite lady. Not tall or busty.

Elegant

This is a beautiful dress. I love the asymmetrical neckline, which was enough to add interest but was not overly dramatic for work. The cut of the dress is slimming and elongating. The only hitch is that the zipper tends to get stuck at the waist detailing--be patient with it. Based on other reviews, I went up 2 sizes, which was a good decision.

This dress is form fitting and figure flattering. Great for work and beyond.

Although it runs VERY small, I was still extremely happy with the fit and the style of this dress. The material is sturdy and good quality. The color is a perfect navy. I normally rent size 0 in dresses and because 2 wasn't available, I wore the 4 and it still fit great! Definitely go a size up even if you normally always rent the smallest size.

Very pretty sheath dress

Rented for a work party, it looked good on, fit in the hips, was maybe not quite as fitted in the bust and waist. Didn't end up wearing because I liked another dress a little better, but it's a great dress. It is fitted though, size up if you want it to not fit to the body, although I think that's the purpose of the dress and most of the dresses in this line

Stunning, yet conservative

The fit of this dress is absolutely beautiful. The zipper on the dress I received was extremely difficult to zip ( especially at the midpoint). I had trouble unzipping and zipping back up. Too many times thru the cleaners perhaps. There was also a small tacking missing (to hold/prevent the material on the dress on the left hand side from folding over so I ended up pinning it.

Loved this dress!

I wore this dress to work and received many compliments. It is very form-fitting and the skirt is tight like a pencil skirt, so I had to take smaller steps than usual, but I still loved it. The unique neckline is really cute.

Professional and Sexy

Hugged my curves perfectly. I am usually a size 4 or 6, with a 34DD chest, and the 8 fit like a glove. I recommend sizing up.

Wasn't able to wear this dress because the zipper got stuck half way up the back. Dress runs small so maybe the zipper would have worked if I had rented a size up.

Gorgeous navy dress.

Very little stretch, and a little tight around the arms. I normally wear a size 4 but based on the reviews I sized up to six. A conservative dress with a little sex appeal.

Glad I ordered 2 sizes up!

I got this dress for work. I'm 5'6", 127-129 lbs right now, 32DD. I read the reviews before hand and ordered 2 sizes up (I normally wear 2, ordered a 6). It fit perfectly! Not too tight. Not too loose. It was like I actually tried it on at the store before getting it. It was a little longer than I expected, a bit below the knee, but looked very classy and sophisticated. I felt like Claire from House of Cards. Beautiful hourglass shape. The only bad thing was: the skirt is so narrow on the bottom, I had a hard time pulling it up to go to the bathroom. And when I pulled it back down after I went to the bathroom, my lace "no-show" thong was all twisted. Luckily the material was thick/good quality, and you still couldn't see the outline of my thong!

Sexy but work appropriate

I rented this dress to wear to a speaking engagement (hosted by Town & Country magazine, so I HAD to look good!). ;) It definitely runs small - I'm normally a 6 and wore the 8, which wasn't quite right either. Close enough though, for an off the rack dress. Will definitely rent this one again!

Great for a work event

I wore this dress to work for a luncheon I had that day. At work, I wore it with a jacket because the dress was a little tight so I tried to make it more conservative. I went without the jacket for the luncheon and a happy hour. The dress is very flattering. The length was a little too long, even with heels. The reviews were definitely right about this dress running small. I'm usually a 0/2 and I got a 4, which was even a little tight. The length maybe have had to do with the bigger size.

Never really loved a dress this long but this stress is absolutely stunning and sophisticated. I wish it was a royal blue instead of so dark but very elegant and perfect for work. The fit is stunning.

Gorgeous, Form-Fitting, Terrible Zipper

I was NOT expecting this to fit me at ALL according to the reviews, but surprisingly it was the perfect size! My weight fluctuates a lot so I share stats for individual rentals- about 144 in this picture at 5'7. D cup, wide hips (probably about 40") and tush to go with it. Now the next thing I'm going to write will probably make you roll your eyes haha, but it's the truth! This went on fine (tight but in the good way) and hugged my curves so so well. However it would not zip! Not because the dress was too small-it closed- but because we could not get the zipper past the thick waist band at all. It would zip when off with some effort, but was not happening at all when on (I think because of the curve). It was super frustrating because it was so flattering and gorgeous, but I was not able to wear this dress. Fit is true to size in my opinion, at least for the one I got (even with me being between a size 4 & 6)

Tight, but comfortable and super chic!

I rented this for my Med school graduation. Like the other reviews say, it's tight, but that's how it's supposed to fit! The material is thick and forgives many lumps and bumps (no shape wear). I'm between a 4, 6 so I rented the 6,8 for backup. 8 was HUGE on top and bunched even on my athletic build so I went with the six. Both zippers are challenging and stick a little but soon forgiven once you see how curvy and great your shape looks in this dress. Would rent again 100%.

Too tight for work

Too tight for work, but cute so I wore it out for date night! It's long, but because it is tight the length wasn't a problem.
