Amazing Quality

The fabric of this dress is amazing. The dress has hidden pockets which makes it conveniently great to have your phone on you, without needing a clutch and still looking classy as ever.

Special and flattering piece. Great for curvy, short figure.

This was my 6th piece that i tried for this event and I picked it up from the store. I'm usually 4 sometimes 2 but 6 did not fit me (which seems to be the case with formal gowns). 8 fit like a glove but I realized it had a little room in the chest area when i sat down. The arm parts were actually pretty comfortable than I expected. The length was great - the back part skimmed the floor with 3 inch heels (im 5'3). The material is thick but I was still able to dance easily. Overall great gown and I got lots of complements. I'm sad I didn't take any pictures.

Great dress with a lot of compliments! Fits true to size for sure!

Received this as a back up dress to the one I really wanted. Both my husband and daughter really likes this one better. Received a lot of compliments and the underskirt with the gold was a great accent.

Stunning!

I rented this for a NYE dinner date. Easily half a dozen strangers stopped me to say "(gasp) What a GORGEOUS dress!!!" I felt like a '40s movie starlet. And I didn't have to carry a purse because it has pockets! I will definitely be renting this again.

Nothing bad to say about this dress!

It was comfortable. The fabric has a little bit of strech. It was so easy to walk in it and most important: I felt beautiful in it and my husband couldn't stop complimenting me all night!

Hollywood Awards Dress Success

This was a beautiful dress. The fabric was rich in color and feel. It held its shape even with a phone and compact in the pockets. It was comfortable and yet elegant and glam. My breasts didn't completely fill it out, but there waa enough structurein the bodice to make it work. The bodice was snug in the smaller size, but I was swimming in the size up. The "sleeveless/strapless" thing made it dramatic. I'd rent it again, but it's too distinctive to wear twice.

Perfect Spring/Summer Gown

This gown was one of my choices for the military formal dinner & if it had not been cold that night, i would've worn this gown. Its such a beautiful rich, navy blue color & I love how it hoops around the arms. It fits so perfectly & its such a fun dress while also feeling like a million bucks!

I should have ordered two sizes just to make sure of fit. Lesson learned.

Dress is beautiful but unfortunately it was too snug on top for me to wear.

Tons of complements. Felt like the belle of the ball.

Very comfortable dress as well as very nicely constructed. As another reviewer mentioned, it does not really wrinkle which is nice. I am 5'2" and this dress was the perfect length with my 3" heels. My husband did step on the back of the dress a few times but not a crazy amount. Very elegant and perfect for the gala that I attended.

Fits so well and material has stretch so it stays comfy through a sit down dinner. I tucked the sleeves in.

Prom 2.0

I rented this for my class reunion "prom 2.0." I usually wear petite sizes so I was nervous that this would be long, but it was the perfect length! The dress was comfortable and I received compliments all night.

Old Hollywood classic

I rented this dress for my best friends wedding, which was old Hollywood themed. It worked perfectly and looked so classy yet trendy. Received tons of compliments. The pockets make this dress perfect. I couldn't wear a bra with it as it was a little tight around the breast and rib cage area, but the tightness kept everything in place. Would definitely rent again.

Unique statement dress

Great dress for a black tie optional wedding. The fabric was a little this for the hot summer weather but it held up well. This is a really elegant but fun dress. It hugged my curvy hips well. I do have a smaller chest so the top was a little big but not so bad. The sleeves were a little constricting for dancing but I just pulled my arms in and tucked them in so I could lift my arms up. I got a ton of compliments on the dress.

People were saying "I wish I was wearing that dress"!

This dress was perfect for an afternoon to evening wedding. The material was forgiving for the copious amounts of food I ate, and didn't wrinkle much when I sat. It was comfortable to dance in, though I suggest going one size up as it runs small around the back. I wore this dress from 12pm to 2am and wasn't crying to get out of it by the end of the night!

A little small, but otherwise OK

I'm pretty much a straight 6, and the bodice on this was a bit too tight for me. I could zip it, and it wasn't terribly uncomfortable, but it looked like I was poured into it (not a great look). Chose to pass on wearing.

The staff at the Chicago location was super helpful and got me into this amazing dress!

It fit well. I'm a smaller girl that's pretty big in the busy, so I tried the 8R and it was just a little too snug. I went with the 10R. I did have to keep an eye on my neckline a little bit to make sure it didn't fall down, but not so much so that I was distracted from the evening or dancing.
