Awesome dress and perfect for my event.
I'm usually a size 6 or 8 depending on the dress--I'd recommend going with the bigger size for this one if you're in-between. I'm pretty tall so this dress was a little on the short side--but just long enough that I still felt comfortable. Hit just above mid-thigh. Really easy to wear, non-itchy despite the sequins, and I got lots of compliments. Recommend for sure!

The dress is very glam and comfortable. Got many complements all night
It is very true to size but pretty short, it hit my mid thigh and I am only 5'4". But dress is very gorgeous, I was complemented all night.

Gorgeous shine! Got complimented all night.
Wore this dress to an award show in Detroit. Beautiful statement dress. Sexy without showing too much. Only issues are: it's pretty short (I'm 5'7") and it tends to bunch up in the middle so I had to keep tugging down. Would rent again.

the color is amazing and the dress is overall really cute, although not the most figure flattering.
I loved this dress. However, I have a bigger bottom and more petite on top and didn't feel it hugged me in the right places. It ended up being fit around my seat and loose everywhere else, but the smaller size wasn't available. If you have wide hips or a larger bottom I would size up. Rent this if you want to sparkle!

Perfect for a New Years Eve party with friends!
I felt oh-so sparkly in this dress! Some of the reviews mentioned it being a short dress; I'm 5'3" and the dress was the perfect length. I did wear spanks underneath, since the back rode up a little when I sat. Otherwise I felt very sexy in this dress! The mesh was very cool and different, although it had some runs and loose threads; one of the sleeve seams was coming undone. I loved the sequin dress - the picture doesn't show it, but the sequins are both black and gold! My dress was forever changing color every time I moved. Paired it with black pumps, a gold and black clutch and my favorite shade of red lipstick.

Sexy, sparkly stunner!
I rented this as a last-minute replacement for my company's swank holiday party when my original rental wasn't flattering. This dress is "very" everything - sexy, sparkly, and SHORT! I'm 5'3" and felt like I needed to sit carefully in this dress to keep everything covered on the lower half (the dark tights helped). For the top half, I love the sheer neckline/sleeves - it's a great alternative to strapless without feeling matronly. The mesh was stretchy and soft, not confining. Much prettier in person than in the picture - the sequins are a coppery gold mixed with black (the model photos look brownish). They're smooth and don't catch on the sleeves. Lots of appreciative looks and compliments on this one!

This dress was easy to wear - very comfortable. Fitted in the hips, but not tight on my stomach.
Overall fit good. I'm usually between a 6 and 4. And this dress the 4 fit best. More flattering.

Perfect for a party!
I loved this dress! I loved the sleeves because since it was winter I was feeling pale, without completely covering up. The sweetheart neckline is always flattering. The dress is SHORT! I am 5'4" and I had to be careful when sitting, not to the point that I was nervous or uncomfortable, but just something to be conscious of. I got lots of compliments and would rent again!

Perfect NYE sparkle!!
Loved dancing the night away in this dress on NYE!! Lots of compliments and so comfortable! It was a little short so I had to be aware when I sat, etc. Other than that, it was a perfect fit and felt true to size. I loved that I was able to wear a regular strapless bra with this dress as well. Plus, the sleeves were a nice bonus on a chilly night! I'd definitely rent this dress again and highly recommend it for a fun girls' night out or a NYE fete!

I spoke to a girl named Evan at CS, and she made the experience so easy & helped me so much!
This dress was one I received last minute as a replacement for the original dress I rented that didn't fit, and I'm super happy things worked out the way they did! This dress was perfect for the event I went to, and was the right amount of glam. Only thing to consider is your height when renting this dress because I would imagine it'd look super short on a taller girl. I'm 5'3" and it came to mid-thigh on me, so it was just the right length on me (not too short). Looks extra fantastic when you're all dolled up, though! If you want something fun, sexy, but classy at the same time...I highly recommend this little number!

A shiny holiday dress!
I liked the dress because it was perfect for 3 holiday parties I went to that evening. Though the dress wasn't very comfortable because of sequin and I was afraid to scratch the fabric on sleeves with those sequins. Also the dress does not do much for the body (especially a waist line): it's just a bright dress. It can be perfect when you gained a couple of pounds and don't want a fitted dress. The see through shoulders and sleeves was my favorite part. And yeah it's a short dress. Anyway, a great one time dress and I was happy to send it back.

.
I wanted to love this dress but I just didn't. I'm hourglass shaped, and the sequiny part of the dress was cut straight and square, so it just didn't flatter. I managed to pin it into something that looked ok, but then I was afraid to sit and rip the pins out of the lining. A good experience overall, but I really wish I'd sized down.

Perfect dress to sparkle all night long!
Rented this for New Years Eve and the fit was perfect. It was a mini dress, but never rode up and was comfortable to sit down in. Regarding sizing it was true to size, the sleeve material doesn't stretch much and I wouldn't recommend this to anyone with larger arms. Definitely was the hit of the night for a dinner at a chophouse and drinks downtown after!

Wore this for NYE, it was great for the price!
The Dress looks pretty in the pictures but it's much, much prettier in person. I had seen a lot of people suggesting to size up so I ordered the 2 and the 4. I could have worn either but the 4 actually fit a little better in that it was more form fitting, maybe the 2 had gotten stretched out? It is a short dress but based on reviews I was worried I would be left exposed but it's really not THAT short! It's a pretty standard length but perhaps if you're more endowed in the behind it would be more problematic.

Too short
The dress is really cute and fit true to size but was way too short for me to wear it comfortably. I had to return it.

That the dress fit !
Dress is sequenced - wore with black tights as it was short. Might have been too flashy for the event but definitely party wear. Dress fit great.

I must have looked as good as I felt because people gave complimented me all night long.
The sequins under the arms were a little itchy and after a while started to irritate my skin. But other then that, no complains, I would rent his dress again.

Didn't end up wearing this dress
This dress was sent to me because of a mishap with the original dress I rented. I didn't end up wearing this one, but thought it was very pretty! The dress fit me in a size 8, which is my normal size, but it was extremely short (one of the main reasons I didn't end up wearing it). If you are tall, I would recommend sizing up just for length purposes.
