No good

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress totally didn't fit. I wear a 34D and the top was extremely loose, and the hips were very narrow. I roommate would normally wears a size four had this dress fitting her through the hips. Would not commend this particular dress to some with muscular/larger legs. Good thing this was the back up

Beautiful but runs SMALL

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This dress definitely ran very small. I usually wear a 6/8; the size 6 was extremely tight through my hips/thighs and really baggy on top. My friend (who normally wears a 4/6) tried on the size 6 and it was tight through her hips and baggy on top too. Unfortunately, this dress just fits weird and isn't flattering.

TOOOOO Small!!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I usually wear a 4-6 and this dress was tiny on the bottom and huge on the top. I thought it was beautiful, however there is no way that this dress is cut for the average woman's body.

Great color, too big on top

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress to a fancy cocktail party and loved it, especially the color which is more of a tangerine/red than a straight red. It definitely stood out in a sea of LBDs. While I didn't have problems with the bottom as other reviewers seem to have noted, I did definitely think the top was too big. You need some sort of fashion tape to keep it from opening up and exposing too much.

Beautiful Color, Odd Fit

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented the 6 and 8, I'm normally a 6 but it was way too small in the hips/butt and wouldn't have been appropriate for a wedding (the fabric has no stretch). Had to wear the 8 but was soo large in the bust, had to use fashion tape and use bobby pins to keep it up. Got tons of compliments on the color though. Length was nice, not as short as picture

Requires Work, but Pays Off!!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is very narrow in the hips. I am a pear shape and really had to squeeze to get in.. that said, once in, goodness! This dress, because it is so large on top, really balances out the bottom. No more pear-shape for me! But be forewarned--1) it is tight to get on the bottom (go over your head when you put it on), 2) you will need fashion tape because it is low-cut and quite revealing; if you are small in the chest, you may not want to wear this dress, 3) It is slight see through, so no polka dot undies! Even though the dress was a little challenge to get right, once it was right, it was very right. I got several compliments and turned more than a few heads.
