great color for a fall wedding
dress was a little large in the sides and the hips. I was expecting more of a hugging type dress with a narrow silhouette. Loved the length and the color though.

Great but not for me
Dress fit true to size on the smaller side of a 6. Ultimately, I didn't wear it because it was tight and I wasn't super comfortable. But the color is really pretty.

TIGHT but very pretty
Runs small, I couldn't move in the 2, and it was a little itchy as well. I wasn't comfortable so I chose my first pick dress. But a beautiful color and flattering length even on petites.

Wore this for a concert for my nonprofit.
This dress ran a little small - normally I wear a 4 and was almost wishing I'd requested an 8 for backup. I loved the look of it, but I wasn't comfortable. Definitely don't suggest this for girls with hips because it rode up all night even with some stretch to it.

Great dress for a fall wedding!
The was my backup dress and was a little snug in the hips! It kept riding up a bit when I walked so I decided to go with the other dress. Definitely recommend some spanx to smoother everything out!

Dress was perfect for the occasion
Beautiful dress - it's a nice dark teal color with a touch of black in the lace. I ordered the 8 and 10, because I do have broad shoulders and based on other reviews some people had sized up, but the 8 ended up fitting me better. The arms were a little on the tight side but it didn't really bother me. One thing I really liked about this dress was that I was able to wear a regular nude color bra (as opposed to strapless) without it showing through the lace. I received many compliments!

Danced the night away!
Dress is tight. I went up a size and it was still tight, almost didn't wear it. The lace does not have stretch. If you are large chested, you may consider not renting it. Lace is beautiful and great for a fall/winter wedding.

Comfortable and beautiful
I usually wear a size 4, but I read the reviews and went with the size 6, and it fit perfectly. I am 5'7" and I have more of an hourglass shape, so this dress was amazing; it hugged all the right places and I received so many compliments all day. This was great for a fall wedding.

Perfectly conservative with a sexy edge.
This dress has no stretch at all--it is what it is. And I didn't have a back up size. Luckily, it fit like a glove. Hugged every curve, but was conservative enough for a family wedding. My impossible-to-please mother-in-law was adamant that I buy it rather than renting it--it was that gorgeous and perfect. I honestly wish this was in my closet. It would be my go-to every time. And the COLOR: So unique yet timeless!

It's a beautiful dress, much fancier than the picture on the model
The fit and quality are amazing! The dress is actually a bit dressier in person because the quality and color are so rich, and the fit is just the best, so I ended up not wearing it, wore the Suno Paisley Wine Cut Out Dress instead. This would be perfect for a cocktail party or a wedding though!

Beautiful color, flattering but conservative fit!
Beautiful, classy dress! I normally wear a size 2, but wore a 4 in this one, because there's really no stretch to the dress. That fit really nicely, with maybe a little wiggle room. The color is absolutely gorgeous; it's understated but a nice change from black/navy. Flattering and fitted, but conservative enough to wear to work-related stuff too. Would definitely rent this again!

The dress fit really well and the color was beautiful. I’m 5’4 so the dress was a little longer than expected but still was a good length.

I've actually rented this dress twice now - once for a formal work event and once for a wedding. It's a great dress that is flattering and comfortable. I've worn it in the winter and late summer. It's versatile and easy to wear.

Lovely for looking, not so good for dancing!
This dress was beautiful and fit true to size, however, the lace is very stiff, so movement is restricted. This dress would be lovely for pictures or maybe an event with minimal movement.

Didn't get to wear it, but had it fit, I would have loved it.
I usually wear a 6-8, and I ordered those two sizes, but the 8 was incredibly tight, and since I didn't want to look like a rolled sausage at the wedding I was going to, I did not wear the dress. To be honest, I couldn't even zip it up the back. However, I really wish it had fit, as the color was amazing and I like the construction of the dress. It was not as long as I thought, I was worried about it being too long, as I am 5'5" and 135 pounds. But it would have hit nicely below my knees without being halfway down my calf.

The color was just GORGEOUS and it fit really well
There's very little give in the dress due to the lace overlay. I'm a 34D, with a 29" waist and 40" hips. Much bigger than that and I think I would have had to size up. I also have somewhat broad shoulders, due to my largish bust, so the shoulders were somewhat uncomfortable. A little more give in the shoulders would have been nice, since even driving was a bit bothersome. I also had some marks at the shoulder joint at the end of the night from where the seam would cut in a bit. Not horrible, but I did notice it. The color is SO vibrant, and the dress is very flattering. I would 100% wear this dress again and would buy it if it became available.

LOVED this dress! I wore it for a Fall wedding and it was perfect.
The color is GORGEOUS!! It's a little more green than teal, but I loved it. The dress was very comfortable, but I needed to size up from my usual size. The dress was just a little too tight around the shoulders and rib cage, but it still zipped up. I went up to the next size and was much more comfortable. It was a little loose around the hips, but it still ended up looking fitted around the hips. I am tall and I wore high heels, and the length was great for me, but I could see it feeling a little too long for someone a little shorter.

Fall wedding
This dress was beautiful. Green lace has black stitching which is not obvious in photos. The material is not at all stretchy so with a perfect fit it was tight when sitting/dancing. Would suggest to size up. Paired this dress with the Kate Spade Golden Age necklace

Smelled like a dirty dive bar
Liked the fit and color but the size 4 I received had a distinctive smell that I can only describe as if it spent the night in a dirty smelly dive bar. No thanks. And thankfully I had time to return before the wedding I had intended to wear it to.

Classic and conservative
I wore this to a fall wedding, so the 3/4 sleeve was useful. I thought this dress was fine -- not super special, but nothing bad to say about it. Although my normal size fit, there is no stretch to the dress at all so I worried about the lace ripping with any sudden movements and ended up wearing a size up to be more comfortable.

Pretty dress but both of the sizes I rented, 12 and 14, didn't fit. Definite size up one or two sizes if you are larger in the hips/butt area.

I have an hourglass shape and this dress was such a comfortable fit!
It has such a beautiful jewel-tone color and it fit like a glove, although with no stretch. It was a modest length and the sleeves are a very comfortable length. There is no sheer panel at the waist, but that was a plus for me. My only con is that the shoulders are small, but that has been the case with nearly all of the formal dresses I have ever worn, so I guess it's just how they are cut. Hence, I had to go up a size.

Gorgeous dress - loved everything about it!
I generally wear a size 8 but read the reviews that the dress runs small so changed it to a 10. I'm glad I did - the dress fit perfectly with plenty of room to breathe without being too big. Also the length was perfect for 50+ year old knees! I cannot recommend this dress enough - I received lots of compliments throughout the evening.
