Beautiful, comfortable dress, lots of compliments!
I thought I'd be able to wear a regular bra, but because of the way it cuts in at the shoulder, you do have to wear a strapless. The chest is very fitted, so I had to go up a size.

Beautiful dress!
This dress looked great! It was definitely tight in the chest for me (therefore I'd say it runs slightly small, though maybe not for someone with more average/smaller chest size) but was still comfortable enough. It was more sparkly than you can tell from the pictures which is generally not my style, but it forced me to branch out and I liked it a lot!

It was a great event and the dress was perfect for the occasion!
I went to an event that was similar to a sorority or fraternity formal. It was my first time at one and this dress was perfect for the occasion. My only critique was that it was super tight around the bust and waist. It looked okay though but you can definitely feel the tightness.

Beautiful dress! The colors are rich and it was perfect for a winter wedding!
Loved this dress so much more than I expected to! I ordered it in a 6 and an 8 and found very little difference between the two. Ending up wearing the 8 because the 6 was a little tight in the chest/waist. The colors of this dress are beautiful and I loved the way it was higher in the front. I got a lot of compliments on this dress and felt fabulous in it! Would definitely order again!

I love this dress. I received so many complements on this dress. It's a perfect fit.
I wore this dress to a friend's wedding. It's very elegant and yet fun to wear and the pockets are very functional. I was able to move and dance freely with this dress.

Awesome fabric, but strange fit
The fabric is gorgeous. It has just the right amount of gold flecks that make it feel special and luxe without being flashy or over-the-top. The neckline and high-low hem also elevate this dress and make it feel a bit fancier and certainly more interesting than a basic cocktail dress. BUT - as many reviewers have said, the fit on top is very strange. I fit into my normal size 4 without a bra (though I probably could have gone down to a 2 in the waist.) However, it completely pancaked my chest , and was pretty unflattering.

Beautiful dress but it runs small
I ordered the 4 as backup (usually wear a 0 or 2) after reading the reviews, and I am so glad I did, because I needed it! The dress runs incredibly small and the bodice has absolutely no stretch; I was very uncomfortable by the end of the night. That said, it's a beautiful dress with high-quality fabric, a flattering hemline, and great structure. Just make sure you size up and maybe even get a larger backup size than normal.

I don't want to sound cheesy, but I felt so pretty in this dress!
As many of the reviewers noted, it does run a bit small, so I would suggest going up a size. I'm normally an 8/10, but the 10 was a bit tight around the bust so the 12 fit me perfectly. I highly recommend this dress for any wedding or related special event.

Beautiful dress but runs really small
I loved the look of this dress, however there is NO give at all to the fabric. I had ordered a 6 with an 8 as the backup size and wish I had gotten the 10 as it was too tight in the ribcage for me. The dress did look amazing on and I got alot of compliments.

Love!!!!
Bust runs a little small, but I LOVED this dress! Pattern is subtle but dressy enough for a fancy dinner, and loved the good quality of the material and the high low hem. Will definitely be renting again!

Unique dress but perhaps not as flattering as expected
First of all, as the other reviewers said, this dress runs small. I typically wear a size 8 dress, but I wore a 12 comfortably in this one. I'm not really sure that it was flattering, as it really does poof out a fair amount right after the tapered waist. To me, it seemed like it was making it appear as though I had a larger stomach than reality. All in all, it was a pretty dress, at a modest but not frumpy length, and was comfortable with a racerback bra.

Comfortable & tons of compliments!
Got tons of compliments on this dress! Wore it to a wedding Thanksgiving weekend. Glad I sized up for my backup size as the smaller size was snug in the bust and waist area which made the zipper hard to close & made it hard to breathe! The larger backup size fit perfectly - was not too big and hugged my waist the way it should. Overall a very comfortable dress to wear all evening/night for a wedding!

Awesome dress!
I ordered a 6 and 8. I ended up wearing the 8 due to my rib cage and bust. Even with the 8 the chest area was still snug. Overall, I loved this dress and got so many compliments. It was comfortable for the most part and gorgeous. I would order this again.

This is the first dress I have rented that actually fit me! (Which I guess means it runs small) . It's the perfect blend of fashion and function-- it has pockets!!! Got lots of compliments.

This dress is gorgeous in person and photographs well, but is a bit snug up top if you have a generous bust! The zipper is a bit stiff too but you'll get there.

pretty dress but tight on top
I got a lot of compliments, but I ordered both my normal dress size (4) and one size up (6) as suggested in other reviews. However it still was pretty tight up top and quite uncomfortable as the night went on.

Easy process, dress too small.
This is a beautiful dress, unfortunately it runs super small on top. I'm usually an 8, sometimes a 6. I ordered an 8 and 10 because of the reviews I read. Even the 10 was too tight on my chest (36D). I don't wear a 10 or 12 in anything. Sad that I couldn't wear the dress and had to run out and buy a dress for my event. Size up two sizes if you are busty!!! Trust me.

I wore it to a black tie work event around St Patty's day so the green was fitting.
As many people said, the top runs pretty small and was a little tight. Because the zipper runs all the way up it was a tad difficult zipping it up by myself. Overall though the dress was great though! I'm 5'2 and the length was perfect.

Simple but memorable!
I rented this dress for a formal wedding during the winter. Even though it is short sleeved the material was thick enough for the weather with an overcoat. I loved the high low design. You can't beat the look for the price they are offering it for. I wore it with black tights and 4 1/2 inch stappy closed toe heels in black. The size eight fit very well just a little loose in the back but I assumed this was because I'm small chested. It wasn't very noticeable. (I'm more of a big six or smaller eight btw.) All in all I loved the look and fit and was very comfortable while looking lovely.

Great dress
I loved this dress on. It was very tight at the top (I'm a 34DDD) so I had to wear the larger size. I would recommend sizing up 1-2 sizes if you are busty. The dress is really comfortable and the pockets are always a bonus!

Easy to dress up or down for the occasion!
Hard to tell in the photo but the gold is very shimmery. Can be a pro or con depending on how much you are hoping to stand out! It's a comfortable dress, a bit tight in the bust area if you have an above average bust. Otherwise it's great and looks fabulous!

This dress looked great! I'm talking "make their jaws drop" great! The only downside is that the dress runs a bit tight around the rib cage area. Other than that I loved it! Would totally rent again!

Perfect dress for a black tie optional wedding in DC -- POCKETS!
Generally, I wear a size 4 in everything. I got the size 4 and 6 as a backup size based on reviews. In this case, the 4 would have been way too small in the bust and rib cage area. I could close the hook at the top, but I couldn't breathe with it zipped up. SO, I went with the 6. I wore closed toe black pumps (nothing fancy) to go with it. The dress hit just above the knee in the front for me. If I owned this dress, I would probably make it just a little shorter. Having the pockets was great! I carried a metallic clutch (also rented) with me, but it was nice to just have my phone in my pocket while we were dancing. I would definitely rent this dress again.

Too small; not good
I'm small chested and pretty even through the rest of my body, although I'm soft in the middle from babies. I tried a 6, 8, 10 but couldn't get any to fit. The waist was very tight. Even the ten was too small in the waist while too big in the bust. So frustrating. The fabric is gorgeous. I really wanted to wear this to a party.

Absolutely stunning dress
This dress is amazing. It was dressy enough for the winter wedding I went to, but still very comfortable and wearable for the entire day. I got compliments ALL day. I wore the 4 (my usual size) as opposed to the 6- I do agree that it fits tighter in the bust but the 6 was too loose on my waist and so therefore the 4 was more flattering. I have a small waist and bust though, so if you are the opposite I would size up. I would definitely rent again but only if it were with a completely different group of people because it is such an unforgettable dress!

Beautiful dress
This dress runs very small! I'm usually a size 4 and wore the 6, which was still quite tight both in the stomach area (especially when sitting) and in the chest. It's also not the most comfortable to sit in because it's rough on your legs, and because of the high-low hem, you can't use a slip to help with this. Otherwise, gorgeous dress, I wore it to the theatre and got compliments from strangers.

Perfect postpartum party dress!
This was a great dress for my husband's holiday party which always falls at the end of January. It felt holiday with the metallic gold accents without being over the top. The empire waist and pleats created a nice, natural flare to my waist line to compliment to my 4 month postpartum body which still has a few pounds to shed! I felt pretty and feminine and was able to eat and drink without worrying about dress hiccups.

Danced the night away!
This was my second time renting a dress. My first experience was so great I had to try it again! Unfortunately this dress runs very small. I ordered the same size as I did previously, including a back up. I wasn't able to zip either dress. I would definitely advise ordering up a size or two! The dress itself was beautiful and I was so sad I wasn't able to wear it. Customer service was great though! Since my event was the following day they couldn't promise a replacement would be in in time, but I did get a credit for future rentals. I've already rented another dress for this weekend in the same sizes and they fit! Unfortunately it's hard to be certain with same materials and stylists. I want to try this dress again though in a bigger size!
