Great sparkle for holidays

It fit very nicely! The back added a little hint of sexy. It was very sparkly and form fitting waist up. It was a tad long but I'm am 5'3. Great holiday party dress.

NOT THE RIGHT DRESS FOR THE OCCASION

This was the dress I originally planned to wear to a 40th wedding anniversary celebration, but decided to go with my second choice. First, online I thought the dress was midnight blue but it was black. Secondly, the beading is very heavy and I live in South Mississippi, which means it was extremely too hot to wear. It's a nice dress but was all wrong for this occasion.

Gorgeous quality, okay fit

The beading on this dress is gorgeous. I wore it to a wedding, and received a number of compliments. Comfortable, can be worn with a normal bra, etc. It's not as scratchy as I have found many sequin/embellished garments to be. The downfall really was the cut. It ran large on me (I definitely should've sized down), and the waistline was WAY below my actual waist. I had to tie string and fold the torso portion over it, which was a actually nice effect, but annoying to constantly adjust. That also helped the length, which was long on my 5'2" frame. Overall, I did really like the dress! Just probably should've sized down!

Elegant and sparkly

I wore this to a graduation dinner and it was lovely and very comfortable. With the sparkles and open back, it's a nice combination of elegance and fun. I usually wear a size 4, but ended up wearing a 2 as the opening in the back was more snug in the smaller size. I wore a Nubra with it, but the dress is nicely lined for someone who prefers to go braless.

Fun, Sparkly Dress!

Love the details of this dress - the cut out in the back was great, the length was perfect for someone a little self conscious of showing too much above the knee, and I loved the sparkles! It was perfect for the wedding I attended. I felt like I was right in between sizes, and while the 6 maybe would have looked a little better from the back, i decided it was just too snug to be comfortable. With the 8, the waist fit much better but the cut out in back was a little looser looking/feeling. My husband told me it still looked great though so maybe I was being overly self-conscious if it. The dress has no stretch to it, which is why it is maybe a bit more difficult to get the size "just right." I wore it without any bra cups and felt like it was tight enough on top to give me support. The material is thick/has texture so that helped as well. Some might find them helpful depending on bust size.

Very classy, didn't need a bra the dress is lined well. It definitely runs a size small.

Plus size does not have back cut out so you can wear a regular bra. This dress is gorgeous and incredibly comfortable.

Gorgeous dress!

I got so many compliments on this dress! I give it four stars rather than five because the prior wear was obvious in some loose threads, beading, etc. but it was still a great choice. The beading was noticeable but not scratchy or irritating, even after a full night of dancing. I'm usually a 16-18 and the 16 fit comfortably. I didn't try on my backup size 18 because it would have been too big. In these sizes, the dress can easily be worn with a normal bra. Double layer lining means it doesn't require a separate slip or special undergarments. This dress is obviously popular and all the good reviews are well deserved.

Beautiful but make sure to get the right size

This dress is comfortable but probably better for a winter or fall wedding as it is a bit heavy! Be sure to get the right size so it doesn't hang off of you, I wore a size bigger as my normal size wasn't available and it looked a little boxy

It did the trick

This was the 4th option I has for the event. Definitely not my first, second or 5th choice but it was nice enough. It fit well enough. It's super heavy and the fabric rubs your skin raw. Wouldn't rent again.

That my husband said how beautiful I looked in dress. That I had so many compliments on it . Amazing

It was a little big but not to much . Couple spots where beading was off and that's from alit of wear. Other then that the dress was comfortable and I felt beautiful in it. I would recommend this dress. First time I rented and I would do so for many more events .

wonderful dress...conservative in the front, party in the back!

This dress was perfect for a fundraising gala cocktail party and dinner that I attended for work. I liked the bit of sleeve and the length but also the fun open back. It is very heavy, but not uncomfortable and wasn't too hot even at an event that ran warm. The 10 fit true to size, maybe a tad big in the top. I would have worn the 8 for a better fit in the top but the waist was too small. With the dress being heavy and plenty thick, wearing without a bra was not an issue. I got lots of compliments and loved this dress!

Great Beading

Lovely dress! I wore it to a wedding in New Orleans and it was perfect. The beading is heavy and forgives and body issues. Hangs great. It zips up the back. Hem is just below the knees.

Going to rent it again!

This dress was stunning in person. It was heavy due to all the beading but comfortable to wear. I found it to be extremely flattering! I am actually about to rent it again. I run between a 20 and 22 depending on brand, the 22 fit me nicely with a little bit of room. The 20 was a bit too snug.

Beautiful dress. Can't go wrong.

People I did not know at all told me that my dress was beautiful. It's a flattering cut. I wore the the 16 W b/c the backup was way too large. I wish I'd ordered the 14. I think it would have fit and had a shorter waist. I'm 5 ft., apple shape, 184 lbs, so a lot of large sizes are too long and too long in the waist. You can see where the hem hit. So if anything, I'd say this dress runs a tad bit large. It's heavy, but not so much that it is uncomfortable.

Flattering silhouette, silky dress lining

I wore this dress to a formal cocktail event and felt great in it. The lining inside is a really soft, rich-feeling fabric that felt great against my skin and protected me from any scratching of the sequins. I thought the silhouette was really flattering on my pear-shaped figure. The only negative was that the back gapped because the dress was too big for me across the shoulders. I expected this--I wear a smaller size on the top than the bottom--and wore a blazer that hid the gapping. While it did mean hiding the open back, it also hid the imperfections in the fit while allowing me to keep warm. I'd rent this again. At least one person suggested I buy it which I take as positive feedback!

This was the perfect dress for a Great Gatsby themed office party! Loads of compliments!

This dress was beautifully made and very comfortable. Has a nice weight to it and feels very expensive. It's a perfect dress for a pear-shaped body, the skirt is full cut without adding any volume. You can't wear a bra with it, but I wore self-adhesive bra cups and they worked perfectly.

Very pretty!

I definitely would rent it again but unfortunately, I didn't get to wear it because of the big snowstorm that hit Chicago. We decided to skip the event. I dinged it a star because as another poster said, the back doesn't lie completely flat.

Classy Dress!

The fit was true to size, I loved the open back. I am between a 2 and a 4 but sized down for this and it fit perfectly. There is not a lot of stretch so keep that in mind when ordering. The length hit on me about the same as the photo. The only con was the rubbing under your arms against the sequins, but the beauty was worth the pain!

I got so many compliments on this dress and did not feel at all uncomfortable in it.

This dress seems to run a bit big, as this was a backup size smaller since my original was unavailable and the backup was maybe even a bit big. It seemed heavy on the hanger with all the beads but did not feel at all that way once it was on. It was also comfortable and the beads didn't rub nor did I feel like too much skin was showing anywhere. Really liked it.

Very heavy!

I ordered this as my 2nd back up dress and there is no way I could have worn this dress. The beading on this dress make it very heavy. It also did not have a snug fit and there was an awkward gap in the open back. I normally wear a size 2 dress, so this dress runs very large!

Beautiful Holiday Dress but technical difficulties

This dress was perfect for a dressy holiday party I went to. It was gorgeously sparkly and an open back. I got many compliments on the dress. However, the clasps on the dress REFUSED to stay hooked together. It was a bit stressful being on waldrobe malfunction watch all night. Rent with caution.

It was fun to wear a dress I wouldn't normally buy!

The dress arrived with a small hole in the beading on the front but wasn't too noticeable. Glad I was able to get two sizes because the 4 was a little tight and would've made for an uncomfortable night of dancing!

Perfect!

I rented this dress for my work holiday party, which was a masquerade ball theme, and it was perfect! It was sparkly enough to be festive for the occasion, but was still SO COMFORTABLE. I would have ordered both the 14 and 16, but the 14 wasn't available, so i wore the 16. It was a little big, but not bad enough to make the dress shapeless, plus I didn't have to wear spanx or other shapewear, which is always a win! I got so many compliments, and felt wonderful al night! Would definitely recommend!

Very pretty, but runs large

Beading was gorgeous and the material was heavier, good quality. Unfortunately, even the 0 was too big and caused minor gapping in the back. I could have worn this but ended up loving my back up dress. I would definitely recommend but size down!

Rented this dress for a holiday party. lt was lovely, but I didn’t end up wearing it.

The back opening is large and I was fully prepared to wear a backless bra. However, I felt my back wasn’t flattering in the dress. I had to wear another one from my closet.

Evening cocktail party for work

I did not end up wearing the dress because it was too big. Way to wide. A regular size 14 would have fit and possibly a 12. I have a large bust and a small waist - I could gather about 4 inches of material on the dress around my waist.

Perfect gatsby inspired dress!

Beautiful dress, very easy to accessorize for a themed event. Nice length- a tad long if you are under 5'5". No stretch to the dress. Seemed like some beading was missing but was not so noticeable with ling jewelry. Looks expensive!

I felt like a celebrity in this dress -- that's how many people complimented me all night long!

This dress fits like a dream. The beadwork is impeccable, and the open back is so subtly sexy. It was not only gorgeous and elegant, but it was also very comfortable. Would 100% rent again. I wish this belonged to me!

Felt amazing in this dress!

Felt amazing in this dress. Wore it to a wedding and didn't need to wear spanks underneath, bonus!! I usually wear a 14 but after reading reviews I got a 12 as a backup size, and I'm glad I did. The 14 was baggy on me. I love the cut out in the back, very sexy. I look forward to another formal occasion so I can rent this dress again.

A vintage stunner!

This dress is so beautiful, and I got so many compliments on it throughout the evening--"stunning" was probably the most frequent word used! It is heavy due to all the beading, but it lays nicely and was very comfortable. I was able to dance for hours with no issues. It's so flattering, and I was able to wear it with a normal bra (since the plus sizes don't have the open back)! It didn't need Spanx, since the beaded overlay disguises any lumps and bumps, but I decided to wear some anyway for a bit smoother line. I hated to have to send this dress back after the wedding--I would have loved to keep it even though I'm not sure when I'd wear it next.

Great sparkly backless dress!

This was a great dress, although definitely better for a fall or winter event (it has 3 layers so is actually pretty warm). Dress runs big so I would size down for your backup size. I'm really short (5'1) so this dress hit couple inches below my knee but if you are taller it will be shorter. It had an odd seam across the mid section which made it feel a little tight there, but otherwise fit well. It gapped a bit in the back but I'd definitely rent this again.

All about the Back!

This dress is all about the open back. You pretty much can't wear a bra, but the dress is tight enough to be supportive and sexy enough to throw caution to the wind. So go ahead and strut your stuff!
