Gorgeous dress!

This is such a beautiful dress! Got compliments All night. Fit: I'm usually a size 2, 32d, and this dress was about a size too large for me.

Customer service was amazing as always.

Beautiful dress. Had it sent on a whim because my size wasn't available in the original dress I had ordered. I am 5"6 and wore the 6L. The dress flows when you walk so even though it was still a little long with heels on, it was easy to walk in. It runs a little small but pretty true to size. Definitely go up a size as your backup. Loved wearing the dress, it was very comfortable.

Great fit

This dress is great. It fits well, and it's comfortable to sit in and move in. I did receive a fair amount of compliments and my boyfriend liked it too. I would recommend sizing up if you're between sizes and getting the long if you're taller than 5'7 or so.

It fit perfect! I'm 5' 11 and the long was a perfect length for me to wear comfortable heels!! It was hard to zip up alone though

Beautiful dress! True to size it's perfect for a 0/2 size, not recommended if you have a large bust.

It's a beautiful dress- it's the perfect fit and perfect length. I wore 2-3 inch heels and the bottom just grazed the floor. Impeccable detail - so pretty.

Beautiful dress but runs very small in the chest.

Rented this dress for formal engagement photos. It ran small and I was barely able to zip it even though I had ordered a size up. It was beautiful though and photographed really well!

Perfect gala dress

I loved this dress. The fit is perfect, and it made my silhouette look great. I wore this for a public speaking engagement and it had just the perfect amount of sparkle to a classy black gown. I received a lot of compliments throughout the night. The dress is long, so make sure you have a tall pair of heels.

Gorgeous dress, great fit, lots of compliments

Loved this dress, pictures don't do it justice. It looks amazing in person has a built in corset and the fit is awesome. Really hugged my body and made me feel and look beautiful. Rented it for a gala and got lots of compliments. It was just a bit long for me but barely noticeable with heels. Very happy with this rental, would highly recommend it.

This dress was perfect for the 50th CMAs 2016 in Nashville!

I am just under 5' 7" and my bust is typically a 34/36 DD, depending on the bra. I had gained some weight and wasn't sure what dress size I was bc of it (140lbs). I read in other reviews the dress ran small in the bust.... So, to be safe, since I have a large bust but small rib cage, I ordered the 6L and 8L as my back up. The 6L fit everywhere except the bust. Couldn't even zip the sucker. The 8L even was tight in the bust but was comfy everywhere else. It does have built in bowings in the chest area and I didn't need a corset or bra but did it anyways to just hold a cleaner look. This dress had many many compliments all night and was super comfortable to move in. It stayed up well and I was not adjusting at all hardly throughout the 12 hours I had it on! Loved it!!!

Absolutely Stunning

I was weary since a lot of the posts said it was tight in the chest - but it seemed exactly true to size to me. I was able to wear it without a bra and I am a 36 D. The length was perfect - I'm 5'10" and I wore 3 and a half inch heels. I LOVE this dress. Felt like a movie star. I wish I could have kept it! Love love love!!!

Fit perfectly!

The 6 and 8 both fit, but the 6 fit more like a glove and I felt more secure it wasn't going to slide down since there wasn't wiggle room.

Stunning

I rented the 4L and the 6L. Ended up wearing the 6 but the chest area was a bit big. I am 5'7 and the long was a little too long with with 3 inch heels. But other than that I was very happy with the dress. Very pretty and it was perfect for a NYE wedding.

Felt amazing in this gorgeous dress!

This dress was great!! I am 5'5 and this dress was the perfect length with 1" heels. If you like really tall heels get the longer one. I have a 36C/D bust and this dress fit great- no issues dancing the night away- everything stayed in place. The dress looked amazing and I got compliments all night. Some reviews said material was scratching under the arms- I did not have this issue. The dress has a bit of stretch and was comfortable. I am sad to return it!

Beautiful gown!

I was a little too much hourglass for this dress to fit perfect, I usually wear a size 6, I'm glad I got the larger size as my boobs didn't quite fit in the 6 and it fell funny on my hips. The 8 was a little big but it worked out. Dress was beautiful.

Great fit! I'm glad I ordered a smaller back up size because the smaller size fit perfect. No bra needed with the built in corset. Very elegant.

This dress is very comfortable, has a great amount of sparkle and perfect for dancing! Would recommend! My only issue was that I had to wear flats so that the dress was not to short. Overall, great experience!

Perfect fit with the right amount of pop and sparkle

This was a replacement dress - Glynn, the RTR consultant nailed it with this pick This dress fit perfectly. There is an interior zip corset that eliminates the need for a bra. No need to pull or adjust during the evening - yeah! Length skimmed the floor in 3 1/2in heels The lace and sequins are make the dress glamorous in an understated way. (My husband who hates both lace and sequins, loved this dress)

Fit everywhere except the busy area. Couldn't zip up all the way.

So this is the dress that I ordered as my primary dress. Ordered an 8 which is my normal size and a 10. Didn't wear either. Love love love the dress itself. It fit everywhere on me except the bust. So I couldn't zip it all the way up. I'm nursing twins and in a 38d right now and I feel like that was the only part that runs small. But not sure if it's just because of the fact that I'm nursing. I would have loved to wear this dress. It is just as stunning in person as it is on the model photos on here.

Beautiful dress and comfortable!

I'm usually a size 4 and the size 4 fit everywhere but my breasts. I'm a 32C and it was really tight so I went with the 6 which fit the top perfectly. It's hard to tell in photos but the dress actually has a beautiful shimmer to it. It was comfortable to dance in. Highly recommend this dress!

I felt like a goddess

The dress was gorgeous. I fit in the 6 for my waist and hips but the girls kept the top from fully zipping. The 8 fit but it was a little big in the bottom half and I was certainly overflowing (as you can see) I'm a 34DD. I think a C cup would look nicest in thus dress.

Felt like a celebrity all night!

This was sent as my backup dress, and I was so upset at first, but as soon as I put it on my body I changed my mind. This dress is absolute perfection. The inner corset let me go braless, and it also kept the dress in place all night, even through dancing (a first for me with strapless dresses). The body of the dress is stretchy, so it allowed space for my booty and made the dress extremely comfortable. I ordered the regular length because I hate wearing heels, and it hit the floor and only bunched a tiny bit. Ideally a 1" heel or so would have been perfect but my sandals did just fine. I would rent this dress again in a heartbeat. Absolute love.

Mardi Gras Ball Perfection!

Love this dress! I rented this for a Mardi Gras ball and it could not have been more perfect. It is even more beautiful in person, and the details are just stunning! It does run small, so I would suggest sizing up. Would definitely rent again!

Stunning dress. Even more beautiful than the photos

I wore this dress for a black tie wedding. It was sent as a replacement dress because my original pick was delayed. I was not dissappointed. This was almost doinle the cost of the original dress at no extra charge to me. Its stinning. Im 5'1" so I had to select 5" platform shoes. The dress kissed the floor perfectly. Im usually a size 2 petite but the 0 fit better for this dress. My chest is smaller though. If you are cup C and above i would size up. There is no wiggle room at the top which os perfect because i didnt need to adjust a single time. The gold detailing in the dress was spectacular. So many complements on this dress. I could go on and on. Its a fabulous dress!

Chest/back is small and dress was very worn.

It's a beautiful dress but I couldn't get the last 2" to close. I'm a pretty consistent size 6 (34-36C up top). I was afraid if I went with the 8, it would be too big in the stomach/hips area. Also, the one I received was very very worn, which wasn't surprising given that it was 70% off retail. The lace was a little tattered. I mean, it's still a stunning dress and with unlimited, it didn't cost me anything to get it home and try it home--yet another reason I love unlimited!! If you're on the fence, try it. I ended up with a black halo red dress I love ;)

Million Dollar Look

Wore this beautiful dress to a black tie wedding and I know I could not have chosen a more beautiful dress for this important event. Made me feel like royalty and was treated as such. This dress runs small, I usually wear a size 6 but the 10L was perfect for me. Could have squeeze myself into an 8 but since it has no stretch it would have been somewhat uncomfortable. I'm 5'4" and wore 5 inch stilettos which gave me the perfect hight for this dress. No bra is needed as it has a corset integrated. I highly recommend this dress. You will not be disappointed.

I received compliments all night and felt extremely glamorous!

The fit was tremendous because of the double zipper (outside and inside one). It's not sequins material, but it is very sparkly, thick material and a well made sturdy dress. The one downside. Someone else had my dress that same night! Great for RTR but not for me!

Beautiful but just not enough

This gown is absolutely stunning to see in person. There's so much intricate detail and the second zipper on the inside ensures the girls stay in place! I'm a bit on the taller side (5'8) and have a full bust (32F/34DD) I do believe that's where most of the fabric went in regards to how long this dress is. I rented a size 8 R thinking it would come up a little below my ankles (in kitten heels) but it came to right above my ankle, making it a very awkward length. Other than that, the dress was absolutely gorgeous. The way the bodice hugs your body and gives such a beautiful silhouette is to die for. There's a little stretch and is not uncomfortable at all. I chose not to wear this dress because if it's length.

Beautiful dress, my only complaint would be that it's a little on the short side. If you're taller or like tall heels, I would get the long.
