Wore for Halloween with cute witch hat.

I normally wear 4 or 6. 30F chest, 25 waist, 37 hips. Narrow shoulders. Dress fits true to size. Was very tight in chest at first but material has some stretch and worked with no bra. Would recommend sizing up for big chest or wide shoulders. Arm and dress length worked well for 5'7" height. Bell sleeves would probably be very long on someone petite. Thick material was figure flattering.

Sent last minute backup.

The fit was tight but stretchy. I still felt good in it and loved the shear detail. This was sent to replace annoy so cute jumper. I got it by noon just as promised. So happy to have another option.

Great fit

I loved this dress! I am glad that I got the M and L because the medium was very snug. The large was very comfortable. It had a good length making it more appropriate for my charity event than some other dresses. The bell sleeves added a nice detail. This dress looks great without any jewelry besides some earrings because of the interesting detail.

Classy and sexy.

All around a great dress. I didn't give it 5 stars bc it bunched a little in the lower back bc the skirt rode up a bit. I had to keep pulling it down. Loved the cut outs and ruffle cuffed sleeves. Flattering fit.

Sleeves too tight

I will admit I have picked up a few pounds, but this dress was very tight. The material was like a scuba divers wet suit. The dress was pretty once I got it on. But the sleeves were so tight I couldn't move my arms. So I did not wear this dress.

Cute and quality material

Nice material just didn't care for the overall fit. Love the quality and cute sheer cut outs. The material is tight and does show underlines if you look closely but not too noticeable.

Perfect LBD for my birthday

I rented this dress for my birthday dinner. I loved the fabric of the dress as it is on the thicker side but still has stretch. I also loved the bell sleeve and sheer details on the neckline and sides! The length was perfect for me being 5'8" , it wasn't too short. I️ usually wear a small or size 4 from RTR but this dress felt as if it ran on the smaller side. The small also had a tear in the seam on the hip so I had to wear the medium. The medium fit better in the hips on me but the upper arms and waist were loose. If the small didn't have the defect I would have worn that one, but it still looked great anyway. Definitely a great dress for the fall/ winter season

Runs Small

It was very pretty. Nice material, but runs small around the ribs and there is no stretch. I ordered a large, which fit well, but there is no way i would have been able to eat and still be comfy. Mesh was not itchy for me. There are cut outs by the ribs with mesh. So you have to be selective on what underwear to wear Sleeves were also annoying. Much more material than pictured at least a 4" diameter of the flowy cuff. Would be great for a cocktail party or on the dance floor, but no eating.

Very nice details on the front and sleeves. Hugs the chest and waist, almost like a bodycon dress. Thick, high quality material. Recommended for cold weather. Definitely size up.

Crowd Favorite!

This dress was awesome! It was form fitting but still had room to move in. It gave a very sultry but elegant vibe. Definitely one to be remembered.

This dress was cute, but I didn't wear it because of sizing. It was a little snug. Also, the sleeves went past my hands.

Nice dress but nothing spectacular

I'm between sizes M and L. Only wore the L because the M had a rip in the seam. Very nice quality dress. I'm 5'3 and it hit me right at knee length. The bell sleeves add a nice flair to the dress, but beyond the nice neckline, it's just another LBD. Got more compliments on my hair and makeup than I did the dress :/ It's definitely a nice change from the same go-to LBD, but nothing beyond that.

Great dress

This was a nice dress for a holiday party. Although I am true small i found I had to pull it down quite often. It fit just right but kept riding up. I chose to wear tights with it because of this reason. Overall I would wear again.

Great LBD - didn't want to return!

Absolutely loved this dress. Wore it to my company's holiday party and received compliments all night. Fit perfectly with a little wiggle room and was super comfortable. So sad to return, but will definitely rent again in the future. You won't regret renting this dress. :)

Perfect simple cocktail dress for a winter wedding!

This dress was the perfect combination of simple and stylish for a winter wedding. It was super comfortable (especially for dancing) and I loved the bell sleeves and detailed neckline. I'd rent it again!

Vegas In Style

This dress was STUNNING! I felt fabulous and the dress was perfect for a Vegas Award Ceremony! The fabric has a nice weight to it and the material looks expensive. I wish the sleeves would have been a bit tighter and the back tended to bulk up where I felt like I had to keep pulling it down but aside these the dress still looked great and I felt like a million bucks! I would recommend.

Super Flattering!

Lots of compliments. I love the thicker fabric on this dress, it lays well. I'm a 4/6 and the small was tight, but that's the style. The medium was too baggy. First rtr, and I'll definitely rent again.

Dress has stretch, and is forgiving. Add some flare to the Little Black Dress

Was 122 lbs. at the time I wore this dress. The seams bordering the mesh on the upper torso unfold, so they show through the mesh; I'd prefer the seams not to show, but no one noticed. The bell sleeves are a fun twist. This dress is fitted rather large, so it would have fit perfectly on my body as an XS. Please order a size DOWN if you rent this.

Very form fitting

A little too form fitting for me. This definitely showed every curve, especially in the stomach area. I would recommend sizing up as I normally wear a medium and it felt very tight in the arms and waist. Unfortunately I didn't get to wear this due to the fit.

Beautiful dress - elegant but fun

I got the M and the L.. wanted to wear the L since the M was a little tight but it came with a tear in sleeve, was bummed that it wasn't QC'd better before being sent but I did love the dress. It was elegant and fun and despite being a little snug, it was flattering.

The dress was perfect for a cold night in Minneapolis. Classy but warm with nice, stretchy fabric.

Size this one up. I'm a little pudgy in the middle but the large fit fine. My only issue was that it was ripped in two places on the left side seam. Luckily the hotel had a sewing kit so I stitched it up myself but, I think QC can be a little better before the dress gets sent out. It's a super comfortable dress and, while it covers you in cold weather, it is still classy and beautiful!

Runs a tad small

Chose not to wear this style as small hole on the seam. I'm only 5'4" and the bell sleeves were a little overwhelming. Otherwise great.
