LOVE the mix of prints on this dress. Would make a great cocktail, night out with the girls dress. Runs a bit large, I'm normally a size 2, but fit a 0 better, so size down!

Great alternative to the LBD

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved this dress and the design made me stand out from those in LBDs. I did not request a smaller size, but wish I did, because it ran a little large on me, particularly in the hips and bottom. I would strongly recommend ordering your own size (as it does not have any stretch either) as well as a size smaller.

Such a flattering dress!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I would rent this dress again in a heartbeat! The material is heavy enough that I didn't have to worry about panty lines, even with the all-white back. I recommend planning on wearing a strapless bra because of the sheer black portion on top. Also, the colors and seams give the illusion of a very sleek silhouette. Size two was perfect for me, and it took a minimal amount of adjusting throughout the night.

Wore this to a charity with coworkers. It was very comfortable, light weight and detailed. Would highly recommend, if teetering between two sizes go smaller. Would rent again!!

Beautiful and Flattering

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I rented both the size 2 and 4, both fit, but I went with the size 4 for comfort. The color-blocking is flattering to all figures. The only con I would have, is the top was a bit (but not noticeable) loose on me, a chronic problem for small-chested women. The mesh fabric on the back and front (creating a deep v) made the dress sexy, but not slutty! I loved it!

Feeling super chic

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Vacation
I ordered the size 4 and 2. I tried on the 2 first and it fit really well. I tried on the 4 and it was a tad long for me and not as tight. I wore this dress with strapless black shapewear. The description says the dress can be worn with any standard bra, but you would be able to see the straps as the top part of the dress is sheer. I was glad that even though the slip was black and the back of the dress was white you couldn't tell. I loved the color blocking pattern on the dress, it definitely accentuates curves or creates the illusion of them. I wore this dress to a nice dinner, and a night out at the casino. My boyfriend still talks about how when we got off the elevator, everyone was giving us double takes because we looked like a million bucks. Also the dress was very comfortable, I would rent it again!

I received so many compliments on my dress!! I loved it! I would have never gone so out of the box - I usually wear all black dresses. This one was visually slimming and so comfortable!!

Great dress for the occasion

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
This dress was classy and sexy at the same time. It had a stretch to it so was great for my larger hip area. The back was white which didn't help in that area however. It did ride up as I walked but I loved the dress overall. My date loved it too!!

A spin on the LBD, awesome contrast for a cocktail party!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I usually wear a size 6, glad I ordered the 4 it fit perfectly and not too tight, I would suggest sizing down as I am almost never a 4! I consider myself bottom heavy and there was plenty of stretch. Love the combination of the two different patterned panels and the different materials. I should mention the right side panel (my right) is completely navy blue - in the model picture its hard to tell. Overall the dress was great and stood out from the crowd. I would definitely recommend it!

Beautiful dress, but not for small chests

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I really loved this dress, but I didn't fill it very well up top so I couldn't pull it off. I am narrow through the chest with a small bust as well, so this is always a struggle for me. But I'm sure it would look gorgeous on someone with a wider chest or slightly fuller bust! It may have fit better if I squeezed into the 0, but I was so scared to order such a small size with my hips!!

So cute and wedding appropriate!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress has black, blue, and a semi-sheer panel at the bust that shows more contrast in person than on website - in a good way. The sheer panel on top is not too sheer and isn't trashy looking. I did notice a tiny bit of fraying in areas of the sheer panel-not too noticible. The white back panel is great. A nice wedding appropriate length- sexy but classy.

Great material & slimming style

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress does run a little big. I could have worn the 6, but the 8 just felt more relaxed and less clingy. The material is lightweight, yet the white back is completely opaque so nothing shows through. I was worried about sitting in something or getting a smudge on the white part... nope - the material is such that nothing sticks, all wipes off. The 3 color panels on the front create a slimming effect. Overall a great dress I would buy.

not sold on this dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress runs large. I am normally a 6-8 and ordered the 4 and 6 after reading other reviews. The size 4 fit me best. I ended up wearing my backup dress over this one. I am a pear shape and didn't like the way this fit me. The dress also seemed like it would ride up a lot throughout the night, so I opted for something more figure flattering. The material of the dress is thin, although the white was surprisingly pretty opaque. The black fabric around the neck is a bit scratchy. Overall I was underwhelmed and didn't think this dress is one worth renting.

Perfect for our NYE date night!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
Love this dress! The picture really doesn't do the textured pattern justice; it was perfect for our NYE date night! I paired it with big, sparkly earrings and dark navy patent pumps. My one, minor issue with the dress was it was a bit tight around the shoulders — maybe a size up would have been better but, my back up size wasn't available (I rented the 4 based on other reviews and my backup size would have been a 6). The overall fit was comfortable and would definitely recommend this for any special occasion!

I got tons of complements on this dress. It was very easy to move and dance in.

Great length- not too short or long. It had the perfect amount of stretch. I also felt that it was very slimming with the black and blue design on the front. The white back is also interesting and striking. Again, tons of complements! I didn't want to send it back!

Best for an average, not special, occasion

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The 0 fit perfectly - this was my backup dress so I didn't end up wearing it, but I easily could have. It was just a little less stand-out than my original pick. Would be great for a night out. The fabric is thin and you could tell the dress had been worn many times, but it was still sharp. The boyfriend loved the fit.
