THIS DRESS IS AMAZING!

I took a chance with this dress. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! The dress is unique, stylish, and SO comfortable.. in the right size! You should definitely size up because the fit runs very tight on your rib cage. I highly recommend this style!

The way this dress moved and made me feel was incredible. RENT IT!

The dress fit true to size. I had difficulty zipping it over my rib cage (I have very wide ribs) but once it was zipper the dress was extremely comfortable. Easy to move in if you like to dance and comfortable weight. I did not need to wear a bra with this dress. I felt absolutely stunning in this dress.

Deep V dress

This dress is very showy! I can't imagine wearing this if you have a large chest. When I saw it on me I wasn't that wowed but everyone else was. Loads of compliments! I have big hips and the waist line made my hips look bigger which I didn't like. Also the rib area was pretty tight. An 8 is usually very comfortable for me, this was still tight I say size up!

Pretty but revealing

This dress was fun. The fabric had good motion and texture and just the right amount of sparkle. It was a little long on me at 5'5'' but would look killer with heels. I ended up not wearing it because I thought it was too revealing for a formal work event. The torso of the dress (where it zips) runs a little small, but there's plenty of room in the skirt.

Beautiful, flattering dress.

I absolutely loved this dress and got so many compliments on it at the wedding I wore it to. It's extremely flattering. It definitely runs very small in the bust so size up. It's a little hard to zip over the leather in the center. I also used fashion tape on the chest as I didn't wear a bra, which worked great.

Couldn't wear :(

I got this dress bc if seemed the best of both worlds: loose fitting bottom since I broke my pelvis this summer and a beautiful low cut top to show my open heart surgery scar from this summer also. Sadly I couldn't wear it bc I couldn't get the top zipped past my ribs. Ive gained weight this year but still fit in 12s in other stuff I've worn. Maybe next year I'll try again.

Beautiful but the bodice runs small..

I loved everything about this dress and really wanted it to work. I'm typically a 10 but even the 12 was 'unzippable' over my ribcage..Yes, I'm a bit barrel chested but not 'can't zip up a 12' barrel chested :)! I still recommend it, its beautiful and well made, just make sure to order up a size if you're not super slender up top.

Perfect for a “suit & tie” wedding!

I'm 5'11", 165lbs and the length was perfect! Both sizes fit, but the 8 was a little snug in the ribs, so the 10 gave me a little more wiggle room for sitting, dancing and eating. I knew I'd be dancing a lot, so I used double sided tape to keep everything in place up top. It still felt secure without it though. Thanks to the pleating, I was able to go without a bra! It's a lightweight material, very flattering. I reviewed so many compliments all night long! Would absolutely rent again!

Great update on the LBD

This dress was great! I had a formal cocktail party and this was just right. You definitely need a bust to fill it out and it is a very deep plunge, but not inappropriate. The side zip was difficult when I first tried it on due to the bands around the waist. Needed a second person to assist.

Gorgeous dress, quality materials, comfortable and perfect for a fall wedding

I wore this to a "cocktail attire" November wedding in Chicago and I thought it perfectly matched the event and honestly, I think the dress was better looking in person than in photographs. The pros: The polka dots are actually gold which I was pleasantly surprised by. (From the photos I thought they were white or silver.) Gorgeous flowing material which is always so fun on the dance floor. The dress was worn comfortably without a bra because the lining is thick enough to keep everything up and supported. I was nervous about showing so much cleavage but since the dress is not tight and is tea length it balances out the sexy top. The (minimal) cons: I saw in a few reviews that the dress is hard to zip and I agree with that statement! I had to get my boyfriend to help me get it "over the hump." It wasn't that the dress was too tight but it has an invisible zipper and a lot of fabric to get through. I also wish the dress was a few inches shorter so the length was more similar to where it hit on the model photo. Overall I highly recommend.

Very pretty and great fit!

A tad small in the rib area for me (I am a size 4, but have 36 inch bust, so I typically have to wear a 6 in most dresses, but had to use the 8R for this dress).

Low cut sexy but classy and fun

Fit nicely. Its low cut but i didn't need fashion tape. Fun flowly bottom. Great for hiding a belly. I just had a baby and the flowly bottom was really great for hiding it and also gave it a nice feminine touch. Wore this for engagement photoshoot. Only problem. We couldnt zip it up all the way. Not because it didnt fit. The fabric and zipper were having issues.

I LOVED this dress. It was so beautiful and classy but showed the perfect amount of cleavage. I have a large chest (32DDD) and was afraid this would be too busty but it was just right. I got compliments all evening. With your hair in a flowy, low bun, you'll look like a goddess.

Great party dress with some sexy appeal

This dress was conservative yet sexy all at the same time! Easy to match accessories. Wore this to a friends birthday downtown. Great little holiday dress thats classy without trying too hard. Don't need to wear a bra...there's enough built-in push up & material. The only negative is that the zipper was extremly hard to zip up! This is because of the additional detail of solid black strips of material that give form to the shape of dress. You might need help. This dress i believe is a beter fit for taller women.

I will be wearing this dress next week, could you tell me what color the polka dots are?

Flirty cocktail dress, perfect for the holidays.

I got a lot of compliments on this dress! You have to be very careful with the top - I sat up very straight all night - to make sure there wasn't any slippage. I agree that it isn't the most flattering for the hips, which is why I rated it a 4.

Sophisticated but cool

Tighter fit, but mostly because the zipper is a pain and tends to get stuck at points. I definitely needed a second set of hands to help me make sure I wouldn't rip it. Also, the chest area seemed like it was literally holding on by a thread. But once it was on it was super comfortable and non-fussy all night. No bra needed- it's got its own built in support. I'm a fan of that.

Perfect for NYY-- use that fashion tape though!

I absolutely love this dress. It was flowy and sexy, but still classy for a New Year's party. I ended up using fashion tape in order to avoid any mishaps. Loved the fit, and the gold polka dots on the black.

Soooo easy to rent and return! The dress was beautiful! Will be renting from Rent the Runway again!

LOVED this dress--as you can see, I'm busty and had to use Gaffers Tape under, but I got so many compliments on the dress! It's a bit longer on me than normal as I'm just barely 5'4-but I didnt mind! The zipper is tricky and a couple of the black bands across the rib cage need to be sewn to the dress better. But all-in-all, LOVED!

This was for my husband's work holiday party.

This dress runs just a skosh small. I am normally a 0 but wore my backup size of 2R as I could not get the zipper up on the 0R. Even on the 2R, though, the zipper was a little tricky to pull all the way up. There was no way I would have been able to do so by myself. Aside from the sizing and getting the dress fastened, it was a lovely fit and I really loved the look of it.

Fun dress

Lots of cleavage... I do not mind so it was Ok. If you are a bit more shy or conservative and want to use less skin, then this is not what I would suggest if you are a D cup like me. Otherwise, great dress.

I wore this to a formal industry event. The dress is super comfortable and the gold dots take it to a higher level. Love the neckline (I like the girls to distract from the wrinkles! LOL) I will totally rent this again!

Well made, super comfortable for looking so flashy. Low cut for sure but I find the coverage better than some cuts like this could be. Really beautiful on and fun to wear.

On trend polka dot print. But the zipper gets stuck. Unwearable.

I ordered the size 6 and it was somewhat loose and I still couldn't get the zipper up over the fake leather straps around the bodice. Couldn't wear it. But not sure I would order it again but at a smaller size, because my boyfriend tried to help me with the zipper and he agreed that it was unflattering. The length is between midi and long. You certainly could only wear this dress with heels. The front is super low cut and didn't look very classy.

Never worn. Not a great choice for girls with curves. (And I'm fit!)

I am a size 6 and do not recommend this style if you have curves. The fabric has no "give" and looked very awkward on me, even though it technically fit.

GORGEOUS!!

This dress was a smash. Very sexy, but double sided tape kept me safe! Would not wear to a work/professional function, but it was perfect for a wedding with close friends. The fabric is heavy but not hot, and the zipper is a bit tricky, if you're busty. Fits true to size. I loved this dress so much.

This dress was stunning. So fun to wear and sooo many compliments.

If you have a flat chest then this dress is a perfect. The low cut of the top stays put without any need for tape and looks tasteful. I loved how the skirt flared out - not too much but enough to give it a fun swing. My body shape is pear and this dress was so flattering.

Much prettier in person than in pictures.

This was a beautiful dress; however I felt a little too busty in it. I am a 34DD and just wasn’t comfortable with the amount of cleveage I had. Although I do not think it is as tacky looking by any means- It just wasn’t up to my comfort level to wear to a friends wedding. Still- very beautiful dress. Fashion tape would be a must for sure.

I hated this dress. I was super excited to receive it thinking it would work well with my shape. SUPER FRUMPY. Made my boobs look bad, my chest look empty, and my tummy look big. DO NOT RECOMMEND. I was disappointed

Showstopper!

Dress was perfect for a formal wedding. I wore the smaller size but even though my bust is not that small, there was so much extra fabric on both sizes. Otherwise the fit was great! I needed help getting the zipper up, as others have noted.
