I didn't have to worry about pulling the dress up or down. It stayed in place.

Very nice thick stretchy fabric, no need to wear spanx. I did wear a strapless bra, but if you were a bigger size you may go without. The hem hit right at my knee. Recommended classic stylish with an asymmetric collar. Nice touch.

Sexy but uncomfortable
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
The pros of this dress are that it's stretchy and holds everything in like you're wearing a dress made of spanx. It's also a beautiful red color, perfect length, and made of high-quality fabric. However, the neckline and straps didn't work well on me. They were way too big, and I had to tuck the straps into my bra in order wear the dress. Also, this was the most uncomfortable dress I've every worn. Granted, I should have read the reviews and ordered a large, but I have a pretty tiny waist, and I could hardly breathe or eat in this dress. I think it's because I'm so short, the dress didn't fit my proportions correctly even though the length was fine. The last complaint is that the zipper doesn't have a hook and eye enclosure at the top of the zipper, and it will start to unzip itself. My husband loved this dress, and the pic looks good, so 3 stars.

Great color and fit!
Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I loved this dress! I was wary to rent only because I have rented other Preen dresses and they are SUPER tight! While this dress was very formfitting and a little tough to zip - I felt like it was a classy, figure-flattering tight as opposed to a hoochy-mama tight. The length was really good for a tight dress (I'm tall so I didn't want it too short) and my only complaint is that is was a little chest- flattening. You do get some cleavage out of out but it has a little bit of a smashing effect. Not enough to make me dislike the dress and I felt great in it for NYE.

This dress is extremely stretchy. I loved it! It flattered my curves in all the right places and held in my tummy when I ate. I felt like I had built in spanx! It is very red. I received many complements. It is a very nice dress.

The perfect red dress!
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is simply stunning. It's very flattering, curve-hugging and the asymmetrical halter makes it edgy. The dress does run small, I typically wear a size 4 or small in dresses. I went with the medium, it was very tight through the hips but the large was too large on top. It was tight, but not so restrictive that I couldn't dance.

Knockout dress!
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I really did love this dress. It's fun and whimsical and I received many compliments on it. Be sure to order your size and the next size up, if available, because it runs small. I'm usually a solid M, which was all that was available at the time I rented it, and it fit, but barely. It was very tight and somewhat restictive.

I enjoyed wearing this dress and it was especially nice because I was able to eat alot on the date and not have to worry about sucking it in later lol =) the zipper was a little finicky, however, and kept unzipping itself--not sure why, since the dress wasn't too tight (it was actually a little roomy).

The lining of the dress pulls eveything in so that your curves are super defined and the ruching on the front hides any flaws. I just had my 3rd baby 4 months ago and was a little nervous to wear a fitted dress but this dress was perfect. It was really comfortable and I felt like I could dance and move around freely. The color is a really nice shade of red, I got compliments all night!

Great selection of styles and designers made my dress decision an easy one.
Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was absolutely the sexiest dress I've worn in a long time. It was perfect for an early afternoon wedding, sexy yet formal and classic. The red is an deep orange red, the fabric is thick and the rouging is perfect. I totally recomment this dress to anyone with an hourglass figure, the curves really show. I wore a "M" although the top was a little on the loose kind of fit, I could have worn a "S". The dress was fitted, and the lenght perfect (just above the knew, very classic)... Loved it, can't say enough of this dress.

This is a beautiful, sexy dress. It made me feel like a million bucks.
Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size

I loved this dress! It's one of my favorite rentals ever. I usually wear a size 4 and the medium fit perfectly. I tried on the large just to see how it fit and the bottom half of the dress actually fit fine, but the top was huge. This is not surprising, given my pear shape. The dress is stretchy with thick, forgiving fabric. It's comfortable enough to sit down and have a nice dinner in. I did have to shorten my stride when walking though as the dress is tight all around, but it was no big deal. I got so many compliments on this dress. It was a huge hit. I wish I could keep it!

Weird sizing
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I did not wear this dress- I ordered an S and would have ordered an M for backup but it was not available. I normally wear a size 4. I could barely zip up the dress and once I did it did not look good on me. It was too tight in the hips and too loose up top; and I am NOT pear shaped. Not sure who this would work on- maybe a busty girl with very slim hips?

Good for someone with a long torso
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
Loved the fabric and color of this dress but the proportions were off for me. The distance between the strap and the top of the bodice was longer on the dress than on my body, which made the strap stick out in a funny way. It was also very fairly loose on the top and too tight on the bottom. I have worn the one shoulder Preen dreses and they have worked better for me, but this dress would be great on someone who was taller than 5'8" and had a long torso and big bust. The fabric would definitely hide a tummy if that is something you are worried about.

The only pro to this dress would be some of the folding details in the midsection. They aren't tacked down so sometimes it was hard to tell if I had them going the right direction or if they shifted around while dancing.

This dress was not my first choice. I tried on this red dress and it didn't quite fit right the first time. My husband didn't like it. I tried it on again two days later and it fitted fine. It's my favorite dress of all time. The material is so nice. The dress is flattering and hide all of your flaws. The dress is very unique and unlike any other dresses at the wedding reception. It was a perfect evening for me. I felt sexy and hot in it. I didn't want to return this dress at all.

the dress is a bit of an effort to get into, but once you are in, your body looks great! The somewhat asymmetrical lines are actually quite flattering - at least for an hourglass figure. The dress does, however, minimize the chest area.

I ordered this dress in S as a backup to the Preen Plaza dress. This is a beautiful dress. It has a lot of ruching on it (a bit more than the picture shows). I ended up wearing the Plaza dress for the occasion but would have happily worn this one as well.

Flattering dress, strange neckline
Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This was sent to me as a back up dress when I thought my original package may not arrive in time for an event. Overall I thought the dress was flattering. Made my waist look tiny, there is definitely a lot more ruching that it looks like there is on the model. However I found the strap really strange and not all that flattering. Definitely a pretty and incredibly well made dress, just not my favorite.

I never wear red, so this was a bit over-the-top for me, but the bf loved it. I appreciated that it was super-sexy but still knee length. The stretch is super-forgiving and easy to move in. Definitely no need to wear spanx, as the dress basically functions the same. It's hard to zip up, but I managed on my own. If I were to buy it's I'd spend money to get the top taken in a little, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

Unlike the Preen Plaza dress, this dress fits true to size. I loved the more conservative length, just above my knees. However, I couldn't get the fabric of this dress to lay flat and felt like the folds just weren't flattering on me. I ended up wearing my first choice dress, Preen Plaza. Great, thick fabric hides pudges.

I had the same experience as most of the other reviewers--size up and have someone help you get into the dress. After that, get ready to stand out from the crowd. The dress is a bright red and the pleating of the fabric is very flattering. It also makes you very curvy looking! I had people ask me about my dress all night long. I wore this to the rehearsal dinner for my wedding and would love to rent it again.

I ordered the S and this dress is tight/form-fitting yet stretchy and comfortable. It covers you up yet shows your curves. I got a lot of compliments on this dress and I never had to adjust or worry about this dress. The very top of the dress is a bit looser than the rest of the dress, but it doesn't move or slide down.

I absolutely adored this dress. It is definitely tight, though I had ordered the large as my backup and the medium fit much better / had that Spanx-y effect. The cut of the dress is extremely flattering and unique, and the color is awesome. I wore this out on New Year's Eve and had the best time / got so many compliments. I was SO sad to send it back. Highly recommend.
