Casual Friday ;)

I love styling and dressing up. For my birthday what better than glam dress, beautiful location and lunch with champagne! The dress is a gorgeous beautiful color, perfect for fall. If you are in between sizes, size up the boning was v tight for me. Best part: IT HAS POCKETS!!!

Gorgeous gown for black tie wedding

This gown was perfect for the black tie wedding I attended. I got tons of compliments. It has a flattering neckline, flows beautifully, and has pockets! I didn't have any issues with arm movement and was able to dance all night. If anything, might run a little large, and it also is long...even with heels it still touches the ground. I feel like this dress would be flattering on anyone!

Big in the bust. Makes me look huge!

The dress was the perfect length, but that was the only good thing about this dress for me. The sleeves are restrictive, but at the same time, the bust is way too big. The bottom of the gown made me look three times as big as I am. This is not a good choice for pear shapes with smaller busts.

Oh my, I was told I looked like a Disney Princess, and in this dress I felt like one too.

Okay, so real talk. I am 6'3. Legit, played college volleyball, how tall are you questions every time I go to Walmart 6'3. So, my fellow tall ladies: this was a really good length for me. Had I worn flats it would have been perfect, I opted for heels because how often does a girl get to go out? Anyway, like other reviews say, this dress is stiff! You will not be able to move your arms or torso all that much, but for me the dress was entirely worth it. It looked lovely and I felt incredible. 10/10 would recommend

Pretty but bunches

Loved almost everything about this gown. It was a gorgeous color for a winter ball. The only issue was the way it bunched when I moved my waist. However it does have pockets which kind of made up for it.

I wore this dress for an Emmy award ceremony- black tie.

This is my favorite dress I've ever rented- and I've rented a lot of dresses!! It was described as an "iconic" dress by those who saw me in it. It was GORGEOUS. It fit like a glove and it's a show stopper! The top is a little snug, and there's no "give" in the material. The zipper is a bit difficult between the skirt portion and bodice. The dress is long and flowing. I'm 5'10" and I wore 4 inch heels, and the dress still dusted the ground. It was absolutely the best dress- just stunning!

Can't move your arms!

Don't plan on doing anything if you wear this dress. This pic shows how little I could move my arm. If you plan on dancing or have a child to pick up, do not rent this! The boobs are pointy because of the darting. The flowing fabric is beautiful. The volume is just right. The color is delicious. But everything else was bad and I couldn't wear it.

The pockets tho

The pros to this dress are that it's super pretty and a darker color than the picture and the pockets. The only con was how restrictive the arms were but otherwise it was completely fine.

Beautiful color and silhouette

I don't have the smallest arms, but please consider that the fabric does not have any give at all and that you'll arms will need to be at your sides for photos if you don't want the arm bulge. The pockets were so nice to have- I don't like purses. The color was beautiful and the fabric is really gorgeous. Make sure you have a steamer after you unpack it. Size up if you like to eat at your event. Breathing became an issue towards the end of the evening.

Classy and simple - with pockets!

I read other reviews that the sleeves were tight, and as a lady with a bigger chest, I sized up to make sure I would be comfortable sitting all night. I usually wear a 16W, and the 18W was actually a little big in the chest and sleeves. The regular length was still long even with heels! If you're thinking about renting this dress - just go for it! You won't regret it! I loved the full skirt and was comfortable all night long. I got so many compliments, I would definitely rent it again. Also - It came pretty wrinkled, and I needed to use a steamer the night before to smooth it out.

Dress is majestic!!

I wore this dress to an Indian wedding and i fit in perfectly! Although most invited guests chose to wear sarees, I wanted to pick a gown that would match the vibrant colors but still represent me and this gown did just that! It was phenomenally comfortable! As someone who is top heavy, I was afraid that I would spill out of it but I did not! It held me in quite nicely. I got compliments all throughout the evening and felt like a princess! I should have gone a size below but it still worked perfectly!!! #Highlyrecommend

Great dress very pretty color, a bit larger than anticipated with the fluff underneath. need steamer

The zipper was broken and caused us to miss the wedding shuttle trying to close the dress. I luckily had the next size up to wear but I fit in the dress, the zipper was just malfunctioning and we were panicking trying to get it to work. Eventually it did, but by then we had missed the shuttle...I also received the dress like a week early which was odd and then shipped it back last night in my buildings package system.

Beautiful gown!

Dress is absolutely stunning. It has pockets and a built in bra! I was worried it would run small based on other reviews so I ordered a size up. I'd say it runs true to size. It was too big for me, but I'm going to try the next size down.

I rented this for a formal wedding. I loved the fit. The pockets were a great perk. I felt comfortable which made me confident! The dress is long so I suggest heals.

the fit was true to size but the sleeves were a bit uncomfortable due to the fabric type not being flexible. i was nervous about the fit because of my busy size but it worked out pretty well! other than that, i loved this dress for prom and got tons of compliments on it!

Perfect dress to feel like royalty.

Beautiful dress! You will truly feel like a princess in it! The only issue I had with it was the sleeves. They're tight, so you won't be able to lift your arms. Other than that, its perfect!

wore this to my senior prom & I truly couldn't be happier with it!

pros: has pockets, super flowy, extremely beautiful & just the type of dress I was looking for cons: the zipper can be a bit of a struggle to get up but don't be discouraged, limited arm movements, it's really long and big so was in for a night of constantly getting my dress stepped on haha im so glad I rented my dress for prom! The quality was amazing overall, and for such a solidly good price.

Curvy girl friendly!

The dress was absolutely gorgeous in person! Simple and elegant. It came pretty wrinkled but a quick blow with my hair dryer got the wrinkles out pretty fast. I wore this dress to prom and felt relatively comfortable the whole night. The shoulders had enough give and didn't squeeze me. As you can see, it wasn't the longest dress but the 20Long was not available. Considering I'm 6ft, the length was pretty decent, and didn't look too awkward. Happy to have felt like a princess for my junior prom in this dress. Well worth the money. :)

Pretty but a bit heavy

I wasn't a fan of the restricted arm use. The draping shoulder straps weren't very comfortable, in my opinion.

Mixed Feelings!

I was very excited for this gown. The color of this dress is stunning but the fit...not so much. I am not abnormally proportioned, however, the dress was pretty loose in the waist. I still wore 0R but it was noticeably loose. My waist is 25 inches for reference. The length was perfect, I am 5.5 and wore 4-inch heels.

Runs pretty big

I sized up just wanting to make sure that I wouldn't have to worry about the waist being too tight and it was literally falling off me. I normally wear an 18, and I ordered a 20 and my mom could gather like 3 inches of fabric in the back. I would have needed at least a 16 but maybe a 14 for the best fit. The dress was gorgeous though. The color was deep and pretty and the neckline is so classic AND it has pockets. Would definitely recommend but order your backup size a size down not up.

Rented for prom, didn't fit

After reading the reviews I decided to go up a size because everyone said that it ran small on the arms. I am normally an 18 W so I ordered a 20 W and it was huge! The top part of the dress was about three sizes too big and very saggy. I also ordered the long and even with 3" heels I was still tripping over it and I am 5'9". Although the color is very pretty it is darker in person than in the pictures. Lastly the top part was very pointy and it wasn't in the spot where my boobs actually were.

The most formal of formal?

It's a beautiful dress and it fit well, but it just wasn't quite right for me or my event. If I were a bridesmaid in a formal wedding, I would love to wear this. Maybe great for a gala or a ball? I am going to a more standard formal affair and the dress is just too much of a ball gown for that.

Love this dress!

At first, I was worried about the fit of this dress. I ordered it too late, so I was unable to orser a size up from my normal. I was happy to find the 14W fit like a glove, (except being a bit long)! The zipper is a but hard to get up, but it's manageable, don't get discouraged. I was also worried about the fit of the sleeves, after reading other reviews. I again was pleased to find that they were not too disruptive. The color of this dress is AMAZING, I received compliments all night. The dress was beautiful, sturdy, and easy to dance in! (PS, don't wear a bra with this dress if you have a full nust, it makes life MUCH easier)

Best decision I made for prom

So i ha dang prom this weekend but didn't want to drop $300 dollars on a dress i'll wear once so i decided to rent one. It was so perfect i loved the dress (IT HAS POCKETS!?!?!) and i felt great all night i'm a size 20 usually so it went well with being true to size but the top of the dress felt a little loose so it was hard to move my arms around a lot but i absolutely would rent this dress again and will probably rent my dress again for next years prom

The dress was very poofy and eye catching, was pretty comfortable!

Pros: the dress has hidden pockets, and I could move and spin around the dance floor easily. Cons though; the stitching where the breast are seem as if their poking out. Also, my two dresses when zipping it up got stuck at the part of the dress where the crease around your waist interfered, making it difficult to put on and off even without wearing it. Other than that, very cute and felt like a princess!

Princess for the night!

This dress made me feel like a princess! It's simple so it definitely needed the decorative belt. The color is stunning and elegant. However, the zipper gets stuck where the skirt and bodice meet and so another person was needed for the extra elbow grease to zip it. Also since I'm quite flat-chested, the bust looked a bit weird. Overall, I would definitely recommend this dress if you want to look elegant without being too loud.

Too big!

When I found this dress, it immediately caught my eye and I knew it was the one for my event. I read that it runs large so I got a 14 instead of my usual 16. It came the day I chose and it was a beautiful gown but it was waaayyy too big and I didn't get to wear it. Thank god I purchased a different dress the day before.

Super pretty!

Pros: Gorgeous color and fit. A stand-out dress that got many compliments! Also, pockets!! Cons: It was a little long for me as I'm 5'3 and wore 3 inch heels and still had to pick it up when walking. Also there is definitely arm movement restrictions. Overall, the length and movement restrictions couldn't overrule the beauty of this dress! Loved it!

Long and flowy, fun to dance in

True to size. Color does change in lighting. When it arrived felt it was too plain. Wore with silver and diamond accessories and it went from plain to formal/elegant. Fit like a glove! Had so much fun dancing in it. Felt like a true ball gown. Sweat and water resistant!

Not the best picture, but this was comfy and flattering!

This was the dress I hoped would work out and it did! It has pockets, the sleeves didn't bother me at all and it didn't highlight my stomach which was my main concern! It was also very flattering to my large chest and I didn't have to pull up the dress all night!

I got this for a very good price, and it worked perfectly

The dress was absolutely beautiful and I was sad to see it go. I wore 3.5" heels and the length was perfect. I felt like a Disney princess. The only cons, however, were that the sleeves were very tight, so I could not dance as well as I would have liked, and for less-than-busty girls like me, the top was at a risk of falling the entire night (it didn't thankfully). However, with these in mind, I would still recommend the dress.

Beautiful but hard to zip!!!

This dress received so many compliments!! The color is stunning. However the zipper is IMPOSSIBLE to zip (on both the sizes I rented) and after I had 2 people try to zip me for 30 mins I eventually zipped it up off my body and pulled it over my head. Also, this dress is meant for someone with larger breasts than mine. All in all, I would recommend this dress!
