Cute LBD. Would wear hair up and high next time to elongate the look/puffy skirt!
Cute dress for a party. I am not sure it was the MOST flattering dress I have rented but if u are not large busted I think it would be adorable. Did not flatter my shape (hourglass and busty) as much as some other styles I have tried!

Gorgeous, simple, but a bit short.
I loved this dress -- the hourglass shape is beautiful, as is the mesh hem that adds a little something different to an LBD. However, at 5'7" (not to mention long legged) it was border line too short, and I was definitely a little nervous every time I bent over!

The dress was HUGE. Super cute in theory, but just didn't work or look good for me this time around.
I usually wear a size 6/8 so ordered the six. It hung off me and felt like a good two sizes too big. I could see how if the dress fit right it would be adorable, but it felt as if the size had been mislabeled.

Beautifully silhouette - perfect shape
SO BEAUTIFUL - Can't wait to rent again!! Perfect for those of us with small waists and larger bottoms as the skirt is very forgiving. I got SO many complements on this dress at the wedding and I plan to rent the same one for another wedding I have this winter. Truly a classic!

Amazing Dress!
this dress is amazing - great fit, hits about mid-thigh (my arms, when down, hit the bottom hem) & incredibly flattering. Fabric is strong enough to keep the shape and fit like a glove while not actually pinching anywhere.

Beautiful.
This dress is beautiful. The dress flatters any shape especially an hourglass shape;) Since it is black, it is a stylist's dream because it goes with just about any accessory and shoes. Loved it, except for the zipper that doesn't have a hook at the top so it occasionally zips down.

Only my boyfriend saw me try it on. He said it was the perfect little black dress and "look no more"! I can't wait to order again.
This dress is the perfect combination of feminine and lolita. The shape is incredible. I had to return the dress I received but can't wait to order it again & actually wear it out!

Best dress of all time
Got compliments left and right. Felt like Audrey Hepburn. Goes perfect with Chanel.

Is the material of this dress appropriate for the summer months? I love the look, but don't want to order inappropriately. Thanks!
RTRJune 19, 2012
Hi Sionne, the material of this dress is a black wool faille so we recommend saving it for after September.

Very Flattering, Elegant
Size fit perfectly, I am petite and the size 2 worked great. I got many compliments on the dress, and I wore it with a very edgy, silver necklace to play off of the dress' futuristic vibes. The dress really does look just like the photo... it will nip in at the waist. very flattering. Conservative while still looking very sexy because of the shape it creates.

This Dress is Magic.
I wore this dress for New Years Eve and I absolutely loved it. I have never felt so good wearing something in my life. The fit is extremely flattering and is true to its name by giving you the Perfect Hourglass shape. I have wider hips and it really accentuated my smaller waist. Initially I was nervous about the length as I am only 5'1" but it went to mid thigh which was perfect. It really broke my heart to send this dress back. You won't regret this rental!

Hi! Yes it did, right in the middle. It is the perfect length, you will love this dress!

This dress is gorgeous, and fits perfectly. The size 4 zipped right up, and flared nicely out like you see in the picture - the fabric is sturdy, so its not too much like a ballerina! I wore this to a charity event, and got a ton of compliments! Very fun to wear!

I wore this dress to a big photoshoot we did with Glamour magazine and when the issue came out, it was my favorite shoot yet! The dress is so ladylike but gives the traditional LBD a new spice. The photo above is a polaroid the photographer Brian gave me to commemorate the day!
Perfect for a leggy look (> 5'5").the mesh netting was awesome! very edgy but the nip at waist gave it super feminine feel. LOVED it and was stretchy!

This dress was ok. The mesh at the bottom was wrinkled (probably due to shipping). Since I got it the day of my event, there was NO WAY I was going to be able to get it pressed or steamed in time. I ended up wearing it, but it wasn't very exciting. I think it is definitely for TALLER gals. The legnth was mid-calf for me which, in my opinion, killed the look. I also got a size 0 and still had plenty of room. The dress has a lot of potential, but I would recommend it only for taller girls. Definitely don't get a size up either.
JamieNovember 27, 2011
Did you mean mid-thigh? Mid-calf is incredibly long, about 6" past your knees. Was it that long?

First off: This dress is NOT AT ALL what it looks like in the pictures. The delicate "mesh" detail on the bottom is more like netting, akin to something one would use to fence chickens into their yard. It does not extend straight down the end of the dress either, but rather bends up and in and curls in strange ways. I was extremely disappointed. Also: Note that this is "wool FAILLE." The picture makes it appear a bit woolen, which is what I expected as I merely glanced over the product details. The dress bells out in the skirt MUCH more than in the picture, as well. Honestly, it made my hips look a bit deformed, like how the dresses of the 18th century French aristocracy overly accentuated the hips. I kept my hands in the pockets the entire night simply so the dress would lie normally (as it does in the picture). This dress also runs small, as I always (and I mean always) wear a size 6, and the 6 was huge on me. Luckily I ordered a 4 as well, which fit fine. It is not comfortable at all, as there is some type of itchy material beneath the skirt, just under the waist, that rubbed against my skin all night and made me go insane.I couldn't wait to get it off when I returned home. Overall, I was severely disappointed by this dress, to the point where I almost sent it back and ordered a new one. I've rented from this company many times before and have always had a wonderful experience, the dresses have been just amazing, and I would recommend them to a friend in a second. This dress is a complete anomaly in their otherwise fantastic stock.

This dress was a huge hit. It's so classic and I have a hard time imagining it would be un-flattering on anyone. It literally creates the hourglass shape for you by flaring out just above the hip. For that reason, if you are between sizes, you could probably go with the smaller size. It fits nicely on top and you have a little wiggle-room on the bottom because it does flare out. Also-It looks like it may be a little short in the picture but I am 5'10, wore a size 8 and it was perfectly appropriate. I could have gone with the 6 but it was not available. Overall- a beautiful dress. If I had a thousand bucks to spare, I would buy it!

This Audrey Hepburn-esque dress is stunning! The material is great and it accentuates your waist perfectly. It's comfortable to wear and the pockets add a playful touch. The back of the dress is very feminine. My measurements are 34-25-37 and I am 5'6 1/2. I ordered the size 4.

Even with my large bust it was beautiful. It was great because it showed off my teeny waist which is usually hidden by what's up top!
