I wore this to a Christmas party held for some of the wealthiest people in LA (NOT me) Awesome!
Form fitting but comfortable. I am 6'0" and 175#. The 10L was perfect. Came just to the top of my feet so no tripping. If you are ever considering a formal holiday dress, this is IT! (Sorry I don't have any photos...I ditched them when I ditched the boyfriend who took me to the party).

Beautiful!
Loved this dress. The 2 was too small, and 6 a tad large, a 4 would have been perfect but wasn't available. I wore the 6. SOOOO PRETTY! Many compliments. Very comfortable.

A little loose around the belly area
Super sexy back! Really highlights your rear end! The length was surprisingly short. I will be getting this dress again but one size smaller and in the Long.

This dress is incredible. I loved wearing it, it is so comfortable!
This dress is incredible. I loved wearing it, it is so comfortable - you can really break it down and dance, which I loved. I actually loved the length - being 5'3" dresses that are floor length usually drag, but this was perfect with 3" heels. I got a bazillion compliments and it photographed so well. I highly recommend! I wore shape wear with it and you couldn't see a thing! Bra isn't possible with the back being open, but you can tape them or wear sticky boobs, no problem. High recommend this dress!!! I would rent it again if I didn't take so many pictures!

Formal, Flattering & Fabulous!
I LOVED this dress! Initially, I was concerned that its straight styling would be tight in all the wrong places, but the fit was excellent. In casual clothes (think LL Bean & Eddie Bauer), my size can be 8-10, but in the higher end designers, I can be a 10, 12, or 14, depending on how much they hate curvy women. While this dress is true to size, it was on the more generous side on me, I had room in the bust, but not so much to cause a noticeable gap; the tailoring on the waist made it look like I actually had a waist, without being at all tight; and, my ample, but somewhat drooping, rear never looked so good. It gave me that effortless, "I-don't-have-to-try-to-be-sexy-I-just-am," look that is nearly impossible to pull off. It is a sophisticated, curve-friendly, extremely flattering look, appropriate for a formal affair - grown up without being matronly, sexy without being in-your-face. At about 5'5", the 12R hit the tops of my feet, barefoot , so I could wear a comfortable, low-heeled sandals - but it would have been fine if I wore something a bit higher. As much as I adored this dress, however, I took away one star for the issue that others have noted: the hanging slip/lining. As you can see from my front view picture, the slip hangs about 2" below the hem of the dress. It could be, because there is, inexplicably, a long slit in the slip, when there's no slit in the dress. I decided against tucking the lining into the top of my undergarment, because that created a visible fabric fold, underneath, across my tummy. But, since the lining is the same bright red/orange as the dress, it could, maybe, be perceived as a hem detail, rather than a hanging slip, should anyone actually notice. Other than that, the dress was phenomenal! I wish I felt as effortlessly beautiful in everything I owned, as I did in this dress. I was sad to send it back and would happily rent again - although I would, maybe, put a temporary hem in the lining.

Looked and felt great. Bright red stood out in a sea of black dresses!
I'm 5'2", 110lbs, 34C chest, fairly petite frame. The 2R was much too large, but my backup, the 0P fit very nicely. The shoulder and sleeve area was a bit big, but sleeves had convenient thread/snap hooks for keeping my bra straps in place and avoiding sleeves slipping off shoulders. The length and cut of the 0P were lovely and flattering for a petite, yet curvy lady. My waist looked small and trim with no shapewear underneath! However, I found that most of my underwear, even thongs, showed through, so I went commando. The neckline was quite plunging and fashion tape was REQUIRED to keep the girls in check. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that past reviewers had said this dress could be easily worn with a normal bra. I found that the back V-neck was too low, and my bra peeked through. had to secure it with tape to make sure it didn't show. Overall, great dress. I got compliments all night and my fiancee LOVED it.

Elegant and scene-stealing
Because of the bunching in the back it had a little extra room in the front stomach area - fixed it by pulling down and taping. Also, if you want it to reach the floor get long! It's not designed to be floor length.

Get Spanx, show off!
Definitely go Spanx on this one. The dress was great, and I felt great in it, but the smoothing action was a game-changer. As a curvier gal with a full bust (34DDD), this shows off the curves great; however, keep in mind that there is a decent amount of cleavage being shown off if you're bustier. I wore this dress to a work function and it showed a bit more than I'd hoped. The material is great, very flattering. I felt awesome in it.

Loved this dress! Material has give but it slims at the same time. It's such a pretty neckline and a fun twist in the back. I have broader shoulders but this dress was still flattering in all the right areas and so comfortable to wear. Highly recommend

Sexy
I really liked this dress. I ended up not wearing it because it looked a little TOO sexy for an event for my husband's firm. The 8L fit me like a glove and was very flattering especially the detail over the rear end. It made my rather flat butt look like there was a nice curve. The color is a kind of tomato red. Very pretty.

Forgiving
This dress fit amazing. Throw on a pair of spanks and it gives you the stretch in all the right places. The back is so neat as well. It was too short for a pair of heals, so 5'9 and up plan on flats! Would definitely recommend

Regular length is short for this formal gown
Rented this dress as a back up for a formal wedding. I'm 5'6 and it was even too short for flats, let alone to wear heels. It's a very pretty dress and I'll considerate it next time it's available in the long option. Additionally, for a size 4 I found it to be a little baggy in the waist. Made me feel good but didn't look very good!

Beautiful Red Gown
I wore this dress to a wedding over 4th of July weekend. It is simple, but elegant. The back really makes the entire dress. Overall, it fit well. I am larger on the top and it was slightly tight, but not more than would be expected. I am about 5'6" and had no issues with the height while wearing heels. I did get some compliments and felt good in the dress. It looked great with gold accessories. I would recommend a necklace with it to really make the dress shine for a formal event.

The quality of this dress was amazing!
I was so happy that I ordered the backup size, as I ended up going with a smaller size than I had planned. The dress was amazing and fit like a glove, however I'm taller and would have liked it to be a bit longer. But it was so gorgeous it did not even matter to me at the end of the night!!!!

Celebrating my brother's wedding with the most amazing dress!
This dress was PERFECT. When I ordered the dress, I took a chance by not ordering a backup size, and I'm very happy I got lucky. The dress fit like a glove. I wore 3" heels with this dress and they were the perfect height. What made this dress even more perfect, is that it was extremely comfortable. Hands down my favorite dress. LOVED it.

Would have given this a 5- just a gorgeous dress and very appropriate for a professional event- were it not that dress had a terrible odor under the arms that came out after a bit of time. Needed an extra cleaning but beautiful otherwise.

Beautiful dress!
I did not get to wear this dress. The red is not a vibrant red, more of a orange red. I also needed a long sleeve dress for my party and this dress was added as a backup because my original order was unavailable! The cute bow on the back was awesome. I would have loved to have worn this dress but the color was not right and it had short sleeves. My arms are bigger and this dress was very tight in the arm area. Beautiful dress!

I wore this dress for a black tie opera gala, and I received so many compliments on it!
It stands out in a subtle, classy way. I definitely needed shapewear for this dress, but it was well worth it. The back was especially stunning, and both the cut and color make it truly unique. I was concerned about the 10 fitting, as I'm typically between a 10 and 12, but it wound up working perfectly. The length was a bit short on my 5'9" frame, but I wore kitten heels and felt comfortable all night long. Love it!

So many compliments. I was worried that the bow in the back would look sort of cheesy or immature, but that was NOT the case. In fact, it was extremely flattering! I am usually between a 4 and a 6, and the 4R fit perfectly. I am about 5'6.5" and wore it with 2 inch heels. I wish I could own it!

Comfortable and elegant, timeless dress
I wore this gown for New Year's Eve to a NYC in the 50s/60s themed party complete with a recreation of Central Park. I loved that I could wear a normal bra with this dress. The train was a bit of a challenge - I ended up holding onto it most of the night to protect it from getting dirty.

Figure flattering in a bold color!
I'm not one to shy away from color, and this dress was refreshing in a sea of black and navy. The stretch in the dress hugged my curves in a flattering way, and made me feel really glamorous. The neckline is sexy but not too low. I especially loved having a bit of a train and the bow detail. Recommend the long if you're even sort of tall and want to wear heels (I'm 5'7 and wore 3 inch heels)! Also great if you'd like to wear a regular bra.

the dress travels well and wears well. It is comfortable and forgiving in all the right places.
the dress accommodates a real bra (not just sticky cups). It was true in length (I was afraid it may be too long to dance in). The color was fabulous. The built in slip was long enough to keep the dress from sticking and riding up.

My hubby liked it, but I thought it was more "meh."
I have small shoulders for my body type, so the shoulders were a bit loose on me.. which I somewhat thought may happen. However, the unexpected part was that the front lining was longer than the front of the dress - even in 2 1/2 inch heels. That looked awkward at times, but luckily most of my event was a sit-down dinner. The dress was still wrinkled even after hanging for more than a day in my closet - so I still had to carefully iron/steam it before wearing. It is a bit low-cut in the front, so not for a super-modest lady. Overall, I felt "meh" in it all night. (Unfortunately, the zipper broke on my preferred dress and this was the back-up.)

Very flattering on a tall pear shape body figure. Received lots of compliments.
If you are 5'7 or taller I would def. rent the tall size although it is still a little short. I didn't find the length measurements to be 100% accurate. I usually wear a size 4. Since the 4 tall wasn't available, I wore the size 2 tall ( 4 regular was a little big and very short). I was a little surprised how well the 2 tall fit. It was a little snug around the waist but the dress still looked great on. I would recommend renting this dress!

I really liked this dress and received a ton of compliments. Gorgeous red (leans orange) color!
The red color leans orange but I loved it. Fit is true to size. Length was great. Beautiful detail in the back! Cons: lining hangs out the bottom by 1-2 inches and that's a drag! But it's the same color as the dress and our venue was dark so you couldn't see it. The dress does run quite low in the bust so you need the proper bra (and ongoing adjustments). Still, I really liked it!

Nice color and pretty material.
Rented this for an office party dinner. It was way too low in the front and accentuated my belly more than I was comfortable with. I would recommend this for someone that is in very good shape and doesn't mind showing off their chest or if you are a size A or B, the dress may sit more flush to your body.
