This dress looked great on, I ordered it in a size 4 and 6. The 4 fit but was very constricting around the bust area. The 6 fit the bust but not anywhere else. I would recommend this for smaller chested women. The shape was very flattering for my height. The fabric was also very delicate and also itchy around the edges.

This dress is so cute and I received tons of compliments from people on the street. The top was a little snug in one size, but the size up was definitely too big in the back and butt. Despite the snug chest, it looked great on and was very flattering. Plus it has an awesome purple silk lining that feels great and kind of peeks out at the top.

The dress was cute but not on me! The 4 fit at the bust but was tight in the hips, and my bust was lost and the hip was perfect with the 6. I thought the skirt would be full enough to fit me but it was not so. Also the sparkle thread made a crinkling noise that would drive me crazy!

I thought this dress looked different (in terms of the fabric) than it does online but I still liked it and thought it was super cute on. Very flattering. A little scratchy and itchy when you're sitting down and/or dancing.

I loved this dress!! I was a little dissapointed that the "Sparkle" stiching in the dress was actually plastic and sounded like plastic. Also, def not a dress to sit down in due to the pockets on the side. I got both a 2 and a 4 and the 2 fit perfect in the bust but was a tad tight in butt area so, I ended up wearing the 4 and using the FABULOUS fit kit to tape the top part to my bust! overall its a cute dress!

I rented this dress for a party and got so many compliments. I found it fit pretty true to size. I ordered the 0 and 2, but ended up wearing the 0. Definitely better for smaller chests. Perfect length. Not the best/most comfortable dress for constantly getting up and down; better suited for a party where you are standing around and mingling. Would recommend!

This dress looked really cute on. Agree with others that the pockets do emphasize your hips, but I don't have much in the hip section so it made a cute silhouette. I ordered a size 6, as this is what size I usually wear in cocktail dresses, but had to wear the size 8 because of the bust area. Order a size up if you have a larger bust!

Well< i loved this dress. I am short and a size 10 but felt so cute & tiny! Loved the pockets, I will say though that the fabric is not as high quality as i would expect from a $350 dress, it was actually kinda cheap.

Although this dress runs true to size, it is not flattering to your hips. I added a satin ribbon and made it into a bow around the waist to distract how big the pockets made my hips look. the silver "glitterly" part is nothing but cheep plastic woven into the dress. this dress does not look as fancy in person, more of a business party dress.

Rented this dress as a back up dress for a wedding...I ended up wearing the other dress but this one was adorable and I will definitely rent it again. I would say it runs just a tiny bit small but this may be due to the fact that I have a large bust.

I was unimpressed by this dress. The "sparkle" is more like plastic ribbons throughout the tweed. Not terrible, but not nearly as exciting as I'd expected.

Really cute but this dress is what I call a standing room only dress. When I sat down the pockets poofed up and made it look like I was hiding a little something extra. The sparkle stitching was itchy and sounded like a plastic bag when I moved too much. I wore it for my birthday and got rave reviews, but I probably wouldn't wear it again.

I really wanted to like this dress. But, sadly it is not that flattering on. I am small chested, so it was very big in the boob area for me. Also, the sparkle comes from basically little pieces of tinsel soven itno the fabric. Which is a great idea but on a rented dress, the tinsel was coming out at parts and looked a tad cheezy. Cute in theory.

The dress is less a-line than it looks, for those of us who have hips! The fabric is gorgeous in person--but actually looks not very "tweedy" at all. Which I didn't mind, but others might have issue with it.

This dress looks great in pictures, but in person, what gives the sparkle-y effect is thin strips of some sort of plastic material. It was itchy and sounded crinkly. It did fit great though.

This dress made me feel really cute! I rented it for a wedding and while I didn't end up wearing it, I loved the way it fit and made me feel. I can't wait to wear this to vegas! I ended up getting bigger sizes then I would typically wear because everyone said it runs a little small, so that worked out perfectly.

Good fit and cute dress. Only problem was the boob area fitting but that is always a problem for me. Fit me great at the waist - tight actually. But I kept having the pull the top up over and over. If I got a 0 though the waist would have been too tight. But cute in any case

Rented dress for the anniversary party at my job. Dress feels great and the lining inside makes it comfortable. It does make some noise but its not a huge deal because it's not all the time. Length is perfect, i'm 5'2'' and it was just above my knee which was great. got lots of compliments. would definitely rent again. it was perfect.

Just fine. Nothing special.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress was olay. Not a stand out. It fit well, but was itchy on your arms because if the tweed. It has a purple satin lining that makes it comfortable against your skin. However, the purple pops out of the top a little bit so it can be seen (which is a little strange). I gine dress. Nothing too special. Fit: the bodice of the 4 fit great, but was too tight around my hips (hugged a little) so i worr th 6. It fit good.

This dress was fantastic for a Christmas/winter party! Loved it!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
The sparkle in this dress is actually a shiny "Easter grass" like thread. It shows up very nicely in pictures. I received many compliments on this dress. It was comfortable to dance and sit without fidgeting and adjusting. The waist hold up the dress nicely. I did not have to keep pulling up the dress like I sometimes find myself doing with other strapless dresses. I highly recommend this dress for any winter wedding.

This dress has an awesome sweetheart neckline and is a great go to but the fabric is a little scratchy. The dress I got was a little worn and I was bummed that there was no double stick tape in my shipment this time. :( Perhaps they packed it as frantic as I ordered it for Vegas. If it had been available, I would have gone one size up since I am a little more busty. I decided it was a better fit on my sister and let her wear it.

I've rented other Milly dresses before, but the top on this particular style seemed to run very small. I love the fabric and sparkle accents, however, I was unable to wear it. Still a great dress though and If you are larger on top, I would recommend sizing up.
