Comfortable, sexy, unique
This dress felt like I was wearing a nightgown. It was stretchy and soft. The see through part on the tummy was just sexy enough to not be overly revealing. I wore the dress to 2 different Mardi Gras balls and was able to dance the night away in this fabulous dress.

Gorgeous and comfy!
Lots of compliments. Small and XSmall both worked and looked similar but went with the XSmall because I felt like it held me in a little more. Love the lace cut out and detailing. Would definitely rent this one again!

Love this dress!!
The material is stretchy and very comfortable I was able to dance all night. I wore 4 inch heels and the length was perfect. Wish I could wear this again! I'm a 32DD, size 24-25 waist, 5'4 and about 115 pounds and wore xs regular.

Fits perfect on curvy women. Very comfortable! You will look elegant but be able to dance all night!
I really like that it's pull over and has a lot of stretch material. It's sexy without being over the top! I received so many compliments. Absolutely worth the rental!!!!

Sexy and comfy!
I ordered this dress as my primary dress with a more modest backup. I was worried that this one might be too risqué for a black tie wedding, but when I tried this on I felt SO comfortable - there was no question in my mind that I would wear it. The fabric is nice & stretchy, and really highlights your curves (definitely showed by "food baby" after a lavish cocktail hour though!). I was able to jump and dance around all night in it. I did order the long size since I am 5'10" and wore 2" heels - and the length was perfect. I definitely recommend!!

I didn't have to worry about a necklace because the dress has a higher top!
Fit perfectly, you can match any shoes/jewelry with it. Runs true to size. It's a bit tight in the sheer areas though, but I had no problems with it.

The venue, the food, the drinks, the friends, the bride and groom. The wedding was stunning.
There's nothing like a simple, elegant black dress. I loved the fit of this dress. It was snug but stretchy and highlighted my curves in all the right places. The length was perfect with 4" stilettos. It was easy to walk/ dance in. The laced midsection and high neck line were my absolute favorite part of this dress. I wish I had it still hanging in my closet.

Paired the dress with vintage hair/shoes and accessories. So many compliments!
Loved the fit. Comfortably tight and worked well with my athletic curves and small bust. I paired with heels that were 3" and worked well with my 5'2" height without dragging on the floor.

I danced all night in the dress!!!
I am about 110 lbs and 5ft 2 in and the dress fit great except it was a little long so I had to wear fairly high heels. The lace was beautiful and it was amazingly comfortable. I got numerous compliments. I was able to wear a black lace bra under the dress and you could not tell at all as the straps just blended into the dress. Please note as other reviewers mentioned: you pull it over your head. There is NO ZIPPER. I had gotten an updo for the wedding and putting it on after I got my hair done was challenging. I definitely recommend this dress keeping those little details in mind.

Sexy and comfortable!
The fit was amazing. It was a stretchy dress and the lace detail allowed for most flaws to be hidden. I was able to dance all night and felt so glamorous. I was able to wear a strapless bra and I am sure shape wear would be easy to wear with this dress as well. Definitely one of my favorite rentals!

Great for a spring gala where it's not quite time for night time florals yet!
Loved it! I wish a Long would have been available for my event (I am 5'5" and was able to wear a short 2.5-3" heel with this dress- I typically prefer a 5" heel) but the fit was PERFECT. At first I didn't think the lace would be stretchy and forgiving, but it was great. I was also able to wear a nude bra; the straps were not visible under the seam of the dress. Would wear it again!

The most comfortable formal dress ever!
Fits true to size, incredibly comfortable, easy to dance in, lace is beautiful and elegant. Only negative was I don't think it photographs well, looked much prettier and more flattering in person. Tons of compliments.

Yoga wear in an evening gown!
This dress was so comfortable! I'm 5'6" and definitely needed the long to wear any type of heel. My heel got caught in the lace a couple of times, but this dress rocks!

Best dress ever!
Rented for a formal event. Loved it! So comfortable! Could have rented a small because it ran large but is also short. I needed a small heel instead of stiletto. Got tons of compliments all night! One of my favorite rentals so far!

This dress was absolutely gorgeous! It was classy and elegant. I got compliments on it all night!
The fit was pretty true to size. I wore a strapless bra and some Spanx to keep everything contained :) Otherwise, it was surprisingly comfortable! I also was able to get away with 2-inch heels. Sometimes the lace got stuck on the heel, so maybe it would've worked better with 3-inch heels.

I felt amazing in this dress, so many compliments!
Classy but sexy. Both the small and medium fit, but I felt that the small was more flattering and form fitting. Surprisingly comfortable, didn't even need a bra. I'd recommend this to everyone!!

LOVED it! This dress was everything that I needed to it be!
I ordered the Small-R and Medium-R. I am honestly not sure which one I wore because they fit EXACTLY the same. It was okay, though, because it fit great and hugged my curves in all of the right places. The length was perfect on me and the open lace combined with the length and coverage was the perfect combination for this black-tie Florida opera - formal, sexy, comfortable, light, and airy! LOVED this dress.

I wore this dress to a Barrister's ball in Nashville. Received tons of compliments on the dress!
The dress was super comfortable! And very flattering. I did notice the lace around the neck was slightly torn, and I had to fold a small piece over so you couldn't tell- the dress is hard to get on, so I could see all the people pulling the neck of the dress over your head would cause that material to frey.

Feeling glamorous
I absolutely loved this dress! It was form fitting and very comfortable. I opted to wear a strapless bra with it and you could not tell at all. It was a tad bit long and it got caught on my heel a couple of times, but besides that it was perfect and I would rent it again. I got compliments all night and I could not have felt more glamorous.

THIS. IS. STUNNING. It is sexy and classic. A must rent.
Fits like a glove, incredibly flattering, jaw dropping/head turner. I didn't wear it to the wedding (bride's choice), but will definitely rent for another formal event. It is heavier than expected, but not uncomfortably so.

This is the dress that my boyfriend (now Fiancé) proposed to me in. I can't say enough great things!
The dress hugs the body, and makes you feel sexy yet elegant. The skin that shows is not too revealing, and even for the most body conscious people it will show your curves and body. I received so many compliments and I cannot say enough great things. The only thing to note is that I am 5'9'' and I wore 4 inch heels and it was almost too short. Something to consider when choosing your heels!

Very Comfy Formal Gown
I ordered a size up based on the reviews - but I think a small would have probably fit better. The material is stretchy - wearing it feels like you're wearing a beach dress even though it looks much fancier than that! Also the stretchy fabric means that it's easy to hike up for walking or dancing! Loved it -- wish I had more formal events to wear again!

The dress was perfect for a night of dancing - very comfortable and stylish!
I am 5'7" and 125 lbs and I wore an XSL. I needed the long in order to wear heels (I wore a 4" heel which was perfect). The regular length would have been perfect if I were wearing flats. The fit is very snug as the material is stretchy so it shows all of your curves. Beautiful dress - I got a lot of compliments and I felt great in it!

I love this dress, possibly the most comfortable and prettiest dress I have ever wore. I didn't want to mail it back. Great stretch material and no need for a bra or slip.

It was the most comfortable dress ever.
I loved this dress and would have worn it, but there are no zippers and you have to put it over your head. I didn't want to wear it all day getting hair and makeup done. I loved the look and how it fit. Just wish it had some zippers.

Beautiful Dress
Wore this to a Grammy party. It was a fun dress to wear. I wish I ordered the long. The regular was just a wee bit short once I put heels on.
