Perfect fit!

I rented this dress for a relatives 50th Birthday Party. It was a perfect fit. Very feminine fit even though it comes below the knee. There was boning in the corset so there was no need for a bra. There was also elastic lined around the top so you don't have to worry about it sliding down. The construction of the fabric was so detailed. People are still raving over this dress!

Loved this dress!

This dress was perfect! I felt trendy and pretty and got tons of compliments. The dress felt a bit larger in the bust but did have a grip inside to help it stay up. I loved the material and the color. Definitely recommend.

Beautiful cocktail dress for office Christmas party

Loved this dress. The slightly darker red is beautiful color. Probably could have squeezed into a 4 but it wasn't available. So, I got the size 6. Plenty of room to eat and dance. Lots of compliments. It was long on me about 4 inches below the knee but I didn't mind since it was a work event.

Have a pretty curvy body, this was tight in the butt area but loose on top. Wearable, but didn't quite match up.

Perfect for business gala

Worn for an awards gala. Not sure I'd recommend if you need to dance. Elegant and classy for work. Comfortable and forgiving if you have to eat dinner. No bra needed but size down if you are a C cup or smaller.

Awards Dinner

The dress is definitely pretty but just not made to fit my body type (big girl with small boobs and no butt). There's a big difference in size bw the 14 & 16. The 14 fit but it was tight for me around my stomach (trouble) area & made me look pregnant. The top part of the dress, in both the 14 & 16 was too big for me...I couldn't fill it out, even if I wanted to! I ultimately went with the 16 bc I didn't want to wear Spanx and since it was a work awards dinner, threw on a blazer & solved my 'too loose/big on top' issue.

Gorgeous classy dress

Wore this dress to my anniversary dinner, it is beautiful! The red and black combo is very sophisticated and the fit is really forgiving because the fabric is very thick!

Great structure

In designer dresses, I usually wear a 6 but an 8 in this worked well. I thought it looked prettier in person than in the picture. I also wore a cute little shrug with it as I wore it for Mother's Day brunch.

Great material but small

The material was good quality, as was the craftsmanship. But the top was too small for me and I couldn't zip it up all the way. Otherwise, it looked great.

Holiday Party Hit--Modest & Sexy

I wore this to my husband's work holiday party. It was a hit! I loved it for this occasion because it was modest and sexy!! With my measurements, the top was very tight and the bottom was roomier than I'd like. It was super comfortable. The fabric is thicker and the design is almost quilted-it is really nice. High quality interior silicone rim keeps the top in place with zero slippage. The boning offers excellent support and gives the dress a very expensive look.

Runs small at the top, size 10 and 12 were almost the same.

Runs small at the top, had to wear a size bigger and was baggy at the hip area.

Love the color blocking

I have a textbook hourglass figure, very curvy. I'm also busty on top, bump out in the rear, and have a little bit of a pouch when I neglect to keep a lean diet. That said, I typically avoid straight and narrow dresses, and opt for fit and flair, but read the reviews and took a stab at this one. Picking the size was very tricky, though, because I'm a true, busty, 10 on top and curvy 12 on bottom in separates. As this is a one piece, I went with the 12 and was thrilled at how well it fit me overall. A padded strapless bra helped fill in the top just the right amount. The fit and fabric were incredibly flattering and I received so many compliments. Only cons were that I personally needed to unzip the dress down to go potty and the dress twisted a bit so I found myself readjusting to center...but maybe that's just me. Cons aside, so many more pros! I loved this rental and how it made me feel so glamorous. Was definitely the standout piece in a sea of blue and black dresses.

Beautiful, but didn't work on me.

I am smaller busted, but this dress had about 3 extra inches up top, while the bottom was uncomfortably tight. The fabric is beautiful, though. I would've liked to have worn it.

Unique, Eye-Catching, perfect for the holidays!

This dress did not disappoint (except for the fit - for me)! The detail is rich, the fabric is thick and more of a felted finish. The top black portion has some slight red underlay to it. The interior banding would keep this up all night. My only problem was that it ran small, not true to size - unless you are a size 6 and straight through the hips, then it would work. I would need to size up for my curves. Sad to not be able to wear this one!

I received TONS of compliments on this dress.

It was very slim fitting in the hips and thighs. I'm a bit curvier in the hips and thighs, and it barely fit, but I made it work. If you have a few curves or a round bottom, this could be tight.

Not my cup of tea.

The quality of the garment was stellar, the feel and fit was just not for me or my needs. Tight in places it shouldn't have been and loose in places that it should have been tight.

I am a small 6/8, so I sized up and there was still no room in the chest for me. Very disappointed.

Elegant but head-turning.

The perfect dress if you want to look classic, but a little trendy at the same time. The material was thick, (so perfect for the fall and winter) soft, and comfortable. I am normally a 4, but that size was unavailable so I went with the 6, which, while not as form fitting, still looked great and was flattering without being oversized.

Loved pairing this dress with a red lip and gold accessories. A bit longer than expected though!

Pretty dress but very thick so didn't wear it.

I could only stay in it for about 5 mins before taking off as I felt very warm in it. I rented it for a party and can't imagine dancing in it ;) I think it would be a great dress for a more formal event.

Perfect dress for a holiday work party.

This isn't a great dress if you're smaller on top/pear shaped. It doesn't have much stretch and it didn't fit me well. But it's a pretty dress.

Lovely dress, classic style, perfect for a wedding or cocktail party.

The back zipper is an issue. The dress clearly fit but despite my husband's best efforts, he could not do up the zipper. Too bad because it is a lovely dress.

Absolutely loved this dress!

I wore this to an award ceremony for work, and I got many compliments! It's classy and it will get a lot of attention! Only thing... I don't think it would be a great dress for a "fun" night out. The skirt was pretty restrictive.

Very comfortable! Great style!

I had reserved another dress, but when I went to pick it up at the Georgetown boutique I really didn't like how it fit on me. Being a bigger size, I knew my in-store options were going to be limited. I tried on probably another 8 dresses before I found this one. It was a bit big. Had they had a 14, I would have taken it, but it worked well enough. I really love the color blocking. It was comfortable, too. I did feel a bit overdressed for a 1:00 wedding ceremony, but, oh well. The invitation stated the dress code was semi-formal, so this fit the bill.

Great fit. Comfortable.

At only 5ft, I had to temporarily hem it up about 2.5-3 inches. With the hem, it still left about 1-1.5 inches of the split in the back. It fit my top very well & I didn't have to keep pulling it up throughout the night. I felt very sexy. The red is very vibrant. Loved it. Would rent it again for another event. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because I could have preferred a "petite" size, due to the length.
