This dress is beautiful but not for the big breasted.

I'm a 43D and Sometimes DD the dress fit perfectly everywhere but in the chest area. I'm sad because is beautiful. by the way, it has shaping bars and those dig a little in the skin

Did not wear bc bust did not fit.

The chest kept falling down as it was a bit too loose and the adhesives weren't working very well. I am 34c and wore size 4.

Perfect dress for a summer garden wedding.

Received a ton of compliments in this beautiful dress with just the right amount of volume and drama. I never wear pink, but there was something about this dress that called to me and just worked. Bodice is definitely a little tight for larger-chested women. I could barely zip it up, but once it was on it stayed put and looked great.

Beautiful dress. Just the wrong size.

I had a couple different dresses delivered because I wasn't sure what my size was or what style would work for my body since I've had two babies since the last time I rented. at the time that I rented it, this dress only had the 14 available so I figured I would try that. Unfortunately it was just too big. The dress however was gorgeous. And I can tell that if it had been the right size it would have fit beautifully. The material was nice and heavy and I would not I've had to wear a bra with it. And yet the boning was very comfortable. And the rubber stuff on top was super effective. I could tell that even though the dress was slightly too big, had I chosen to wear it it would not have fallen off or slipped down. The next time I need a dress, if the 12 is available I might well rent it.

Loved this dress!

I rented this dress for a black-tie optional wedding. I got tons of compliments on it the entire night. It moves very well, especially when walking or dancing. I do however think this dress is suited for someone who is small to normal-sized in the chest area-I'm a 34DDD and it didn't fit great up top.

I got lots of compliments! The color really made it standout amongst all of the black dresses.

I got a 2 and a 4. I am more of a pear shaped gal, and the 2 worked best for me. Normally, I need to go for a bigger size to fit my bottom half, but because this dress is so flowy, I could pick a dress based on my bust. The bust was still a tad bit too large, and I had to tug it up every now and then.

Great dress

The dress fit well and was really fun to wear. The only issue is that it had obviously been worn and shipped many times prior to me wearing it. The hard lining on the inside of the dress that allows it to keep its shape was bent in a way that I couldn't get the wrinkles out with a steamer or an iron. The inside was worse than the outside, so it wasn't super noticeable, but just a bit of a bummer. Otherwise, the dress fit great and if you end up receiving a newer, less worn dress I would highly recommend!

Beautiful Summer Color Wedding Dress

I knew I wanted to wear something colorful and fun for this hot Phoenix wedding. Funnily enough, all the cousins had the same idea and we all wore similar, bold color palettes of reds, pinks, and oranges and matches SO well. The size 10 was my back up size, and what I ended up wearing simply for the waist and chest area (my waist was 31" and I wear 36D bras). I docked a star because I was constantly pulling the top of the dress up to avoid a fashion disaster. In terms of width, the dress fit perfectly up top, but it could have used more height or some threading on the top seam to prevent the falling over effect. There was also a loose thread at the bottom of the dress that came completely undone on the dance floor and resulted in the large hem coming undone in a very unseemly way. Luckily it was the end of the night and past pictures and no one really cared or noticed.

A bit large, but soo many compliments!

I styled this with a pair of nude, crystal-adorned Aldo pumps. The asymmetrical cut definitely requests stellar shoes and brought attention to my new pumps! I received sooo many compliments on the dress - as many as ten different women in one night, not including pictures afterwards! Stunning and fun, can be played up or down in formalness depending on accessories. It's modest yet sexy in cut. However, I found this dress ran a bit large. I don't have a big bust, so I was always worried it would slip down while dancing and was constantly adjusting it back up. Overall a great dress though - make sure to order multiple sizes!

So many compliments

Rented this for a wedding, but got it early to try on and ended up wearing to a derby party this weekend instead. I got so many compliments and it was fun to wear. Wouldn't wear to an all day occasion as it is heavy and I had to keep pulling it up, also it has a bodice to help hold it up, that after sitting for a while started digging into my ribs, so rent it for a standing event, it is a true stunner!

Amazing color and pockets!

I loved everything about this dress! It felt well and had pockets. It was super fun to dance in and I stayed on the dance floor ALL night long, and the dress stayed put the whole night. I received compliments the entire night, the bride even remembered the dress and complimented it again in the thank you card from the wedding! I wore nude colored shoes and added a pearl necklace. I wanted to rent it again for another wedding , but my husband wanted me to try a new one. LOL

This dress was made of high quality material and pretty, but it would not zip due to my bust (I am a 34D)

Loved the style!

This was such a gorgeous dress, i loved the color, loved the style. I rented it to wear to a wedding but I'm only 5'2" and the dress was still just a little bit too long wearing my 4" heels, so I had to return it. I think if you're at least 5'3" this dress would be perfect for you!

Everyone complimented me in this dress!

The bust ran REALLY small for me (I wore a sz 10 and I'm 36DD and had to wear a jacket because the back wouldn't zip at my bustline). The fabric is great quality and twirled perfectly throughout the night!

I rented this show stopper for opening day at the horse races in Del Mar, CA and literally felt like a princess! The high-low design is incredibly flattering and has a dramatic effect. Highly recommend this dress for any summer party or special event!

Slightly large but manageable in the bust, but too long even with tallest heels. Did not wear. Would be good for formal or black tie event.

Amazing movement and TONS of compliments

Movement on the skirt makes you look like an amazing hot pink evil villian/goddess. Pretty sure I had more compliments on this look than anything else I've rented and the social media praise was immense. I'm also a couple months postpartum and the waist/skirt hid my baby pooch.

Great dress !

I received this as a back up for a formal black tie wedding in late September...it fit great, very comfortable with great structure so no need for a bra despite being a 36DD. Great length for us short girls that doesn't need fashion tape or 5" heels in order to be a wearable long formal looking gown. Beautiful color, didn't end up wearing it because it was too bright of a color for the affair but will definitely rent for future spring/summer formal affairs.

Beautiful dress - but very in terrible condition

This is a beautiful dress! I put it on and know it would look great, but it was in terrible condition. The stays that should follow the seams in front are all over the place. Also the hem is very worn and even a little dark with dirt. Too bad. It's really pretty on.

Beautiful dress overall but could not wear :(

True to size except for bust. I received this dress as a backup because there was an issue with the shipment of my 1st choice. I ended up not wearing because the bust was incredibly too large. I am short with a small bust (34A) and the dress fit everywhere except there. A padded strapless bra didn't work for me with this choice because of the internal hidden support the dress already comes with. It also has a lot of boning. If you have something going for you up top, you should be fine. Great cut for eating well at an event and it was flared in the midsection! I wish it could have worked for me.

The easy of it all...

Flowing compliments all night long. I was able to get the correct size overnighted to my hotel room without any issues! The return was simple. The dress did cut into my skin ... I read prior that the plastic bars along the top stick out on some dresses and poked people. This is every similar to when ones bra wire comes through the material. Overall great dress. I wear a 34C and needed to go up one dress size.

Great dress but runs large

Very pretty dress and great color. Unfortunately I found it ran large (rented the 0 and it would not stay up) so didn't wear it to the event. That happens to me frequently but if you have a smaller chest / rib cage it may not work.

Loved this dress except for the sizing.

I rented this dress for night out at the theatre. The size 12R zipped up but was too snug for my liking (really tight). I decided to wear the 14R but it was too big and within an hour of wearing it I was constantly tugging it up. I could have not worn the larger size if I had to be dancing or moving a lot. I was scared it would fall down just walking. All of that aside I loved this dress and got many compliments. The length was perfect for my height with a low heel.

The colors are lovely and different than most other dresses.

If you are small in the bust like me you may find that this dress runs large. I am usually a 6 on top but even with a 4 and the "chicken cutlets" made for strapless dresses, i spent the night hitching up this dress. BUT! It looked lovely and (I think) had pockets, so that's a big plus.

I basically used other reviews to decipher my size. The 2 fit beautifully and I didn't have to worry about pulling it up all night. It was tight enough on top for a very small cup. Got soooo many compliments!! Everyone loved this dress!!!

I cannot say enough about this dress! If you want to make a statement, rent this one!! I received so many compliments from fellow attendees at the Kentucky Derby-themed party I rented the dress for. It runs small in the bust area but is workable.

Compliments all night but tight in the bust

I wore a size 6 and the dress was tough to zip up around my 36D bust. The cut is lower on your chest so definitely shows some cleavage. The length fit perfect with 3 inch heals and the dress was roomy in the waist. I received compliments all night on my dress. Due to the bust being uncomfortable I would not rent again But it worked well for this event and was very pretty.
