Formal Affair
Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was comfortable and easy to wear - plus I got many compliments on it. I usually wear a size 10 but after reading other reviews that suggested to size up, I got the size 12. It fit a little loosely but was still fine. One thing that I really liked: I'm very tall and sometimes its difficult to find dresses that arent too short - since I wasn't wearing tights with this I was very happy that it had a slightly longer length (just above my knees) and I wasn't worried about pulling it down all night.

Absolutely adorable but not too comfortable
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I absolutely loved the look of this dress. The shiny quilted fabric felt really high quality and it was different from any other dress I have worn. I am very pear shaped and ordered the 2 and the 4. I wore the 2. The skirt was straighter on me than it was in the picture due to my wide hips, but it covered them up and was a really tasteful NYE choice. I have weird posture in the photo which makes it look like it stuck out in the tummy but that was a fluke--it was really flattering all night. Like another reviewer mentioned, the seams around the arms and waist are very stiff and uncomfortable, which is why this dress doesn't get a 5, but I would absolutely recommend it for any winter event other than that!

Stylist Review!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This dress was great! I loved the black and white and gold pattern! This dress ran very true to size but was very fitted in the bust. I would definitely size up in backup because the fabric has no stretch to it. I loved that I could wear a standard bra and the length was about 1-2 inches above my knee.

It was looks even better in person! It runs true to size. It is the right mix of sparkle with elegance! The fabric is thicker so keeps you warm and doesn't wrinkle. I would rent again!

Pretty from a distance
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I loved this dress from a distance, but up close the material is very thick and feels like upholstery. The overall look and fit are nice, but it was a little itchy and I didn't love the way I looked in it. Since it was part of the $20.14 promotion, it was fine, but I would not get it again.

This dress is not meant for shorter girls. It runs a bit long. Did not wear.
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I usually love this designer's dress. But, I did not end up wearing this one. It was too boxy. Also, there is gold in the dress. So don't plan on wearing any silver with this.

pretty dress, but I didn't end up wearing it because it was uncomfortable.
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
The fabric is much thicker than I expected and the white is more of a golden cream color. The seams and edges cut into me around the neckline so I didn't wear it. I have worn tons of shoshanna dresses and I would say overall the size of this was comparable, but it was less comfortable than her other dresses.

Very Large
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I wore this for a business casual event. I got many compliments on the dress because of the unique pattern, but it runs extremely large. I am not sure I would even be able to fit into the next size down. Also, the fabric is very thick and tends to wrinkle when you sit down.

This dress is very sophisticated and lady-like. I loved it and got tons of compliments. It was perfect for a fancy office party! It fits true to size to a little bit small.

Such a fun pattern - looks great in photos!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This was such a cute, fun dress! I LOVE the pattern and it looks great in pictures. It's a very thick fabric and the cut isn't an empire waist, but is higher than your waist line so I guess it makes your waist look a bit slimmer. I thought it looked great from the front, but the back was less flattering and I think it made my behind look huge! But, still, very cute and I liked it. Just not as flattering as I had hoped from the back.
