Such a unique dress
Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this dress! It was very light and airy and flowed as I walked. The top is definitely tight as other reviewers have said so I had to go a size up. I was able to wear it without a bra because the inside corset is so supportive. I would definitely recommend this for your next black tie event!!

Gorgeous gown, but too tight in the bust/chest.
Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Being a B cup, I have never had an issue with a dress in my size being tight on the ribs/chest but that is exactly what happened with this one. It is INCREDIBLY small on the chest, be extremely wary of ordering if you are 34-36" and anything larger than a B cup. Do not be deceived by the photo- the fabric is absolutely divine but I could not even zip up the external zipper all the way...and could barely breathe!

Great Colors and detail
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
The fit in the chest is very tight, I couldn't wear it. But, the color, print and jewels are so pretty! If you are smaller chested, this dress would be perfect. Also, very long even with 2 inch heels.

Lovely, but expensive for the quality and fit
Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I thought this dress was pretty. The fabric is lovely and great for a summer or beach wedding. I wasn't a huge fan of the jewels around the waist, as I thought it actually cheapened the look of the dress. I also thought the dress fit awkwardly through the bust. The UK8/US4 fit true to size through the body, but was very tight through the chest. I'm an A cup and it flattened me out like board. If I had a bigger chest there would not have been a chance of it zipping up. However, my back up size UK10/US6 was way too big in the chest even with a very padded push up. Needless to say I didn't end up wearing it because I had rented something I liked a lot better. Like the other Matthew Williamson dress I rented I found the same thing to be true in terms of quality; it's very average. This dress is a $400 rental, and in my opinion it's not worth that price. If you are willing to spend $400, rent the "Law of Gravity Gown", it's far superior in quality and styling.
