Got TONS of compliments!

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I wore this to a friends bridal shower and got tons of compliments. I loved the fit although the armholes were a tiny bit snug. I usually wear a 0 and the xs was perfect- fitted in the top through to the waist. I was able to wear a normal bra.

Perfect for Derby Party!

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this for a Kentucky Derby themed party and received many compliments, paired with a black and white hat. The fit was pretty amazing - had plenty of room through the hips and fit pretty well in the chest. The fabric is cotton and has no stretch at all. The only issue with fit that I had was across the back. I think that because I am short-waisted, there was a little gapping on either strap so I had to tape it to keep my bra from being exposed. Someone with a broad back and/or longer torso would likely not have this issue.

I rented this embroidered black and white style for a fun night out with friends! I would highly recommend this dress! It was definitely a conversational look that received a ton of compliments. I paired it with the Samirah Necklace to add a little color!

Deco-dent!

Size worn: S
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
Super cute dress and very comfortable--also super short so be mindful of that when ordering and stepping out of cars. The hemline of the dress hit my legs about the same as in the picture, mid-thigh, maybe a little higher.The design is so beautiful though and super waist cinching. Loved it. Would consider sizing up for the back up.

This dress was so comfortable!

Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This dress was perfect for my graduation day. It was comfortable and light. I had to go with the Large because the dress has no stretch and the medium was too tight. It was a little short and kept riding up but it wasn't a major problem. I enjoyed my day and it was the perfect dress for the occasion!

Beautiful fabric but not good for an apple body

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Had a baby recently, and so I'm still carrying extra weight in the midsection. Unfortunately this dress, which fit fine in the bust, was just too tight in the stomach for me. Would look better on an hourglass, pear, or straight figure.

Pretty and different

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this for an afternoon to evening wedding. The small was slightly too big and the xsmall was slightly too small. Most agreed the XS looked better so I wore that, even though it pulled across the chest slightly. The material is very light (cotton) and breathed well. I got a few compliments on it. It wasn't the most comfortable dress to wear and my bra strap in the back kept getting exposed most of the night. It was a fun dress though overall but probably not one I'd want to wear again.

Fun pattern that allows you to wear black and still stand out!

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This pattern is very flattering, especially at the waist! No stretch at all, and quite honestly, I wasn't all that impressed with the quality. Felt like a basic cotton dress that you might buy for $115 - not rent at that price.

Beautiful design!

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This dress was prefect for a girls night out! The girls loved it and many others commented on how lovely it was! it was a touch snug through the arm holes (that isn't normally and issue for me) the waist is definitely small- I would size up if you your are undecided though. I am renting it again for another party in a few weeks!!

I ordered this dress for a black & white themed New Year's Eve party, but ended up not wearing it.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I was very disappointed in this dress - so much so that I actually had a fashion emergency on NYE when I realized I couldn't wear it! Kind of upsetting. Fabric is very flimsy and arrived quite wrinkled and a bit linty. More appropriate for a conservative work event than a fun party. Fit was very odd. I normally wear a 0 in dresses, and the XS was too small and the S was too big. Lots of bunching in the midsection. Arm holes were very tight on both sizes. It says you can wear a regular bra, but I did not find this to be true as the back is a bit too low.

Great pattern, great dress!

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Overall, I loved this dress! I wore this to a wedding and it was very appropriate for the occassion. Could easily be dressed up or down. The fabric was a little thinner than I was expecting so it wrinkled easy, but the pattern covered that for the most part so it wasn't a big deal. The straps were also a bit long on me (but I have this problem a lot) so I had to wear a strapless bra since my bra straps kept peeking out when I tried it with a normal one. Would definitely reccommend this dress!

The dress was classy and perfect for a derby party!

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I ordered a small and extra small, but both sizes did not fit. I normally wear a small, but the very tiny invisible zipper did not want to budge. I was very happy to have the medium sent the next day in time for my birthday and derby party. Definitely go a size up if you are planning to move or eat while wearing the dress:). I love this dress and would rent it again. Very comfortable and beautiful in person.

Great dress for day to evening!

Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
Great dress, bought on their clearance sale. So well made, a classy dress with a flattering cut! Very comfortable to wear. Dress is great for a day to night option. Can dress it down and make it look great for daytime affairs with subtle jewelry and a pair of lower heels, then for a night on the town switch to higher heels and a bit more daring/statement jewelry for a dressier look. Dress runs very small, I normally wear a size 6-8 in dresses and the large fits perfectly. Very pleased!

Felt great throughout the night

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I felt great in this dress the entire night. I recieved many compliments. I wore my hair up which looked great with the back of the dress. Only negative was it was a little tight and sitting through dinner was alittle difficult. Overall the pattern was flattering and I loved the way I looked.
