beautiful print, flashy.
Unfortunately, it was much shorter than expected. It runs small. I normally wear a size 2 the 2 was WAY too small. The 4 fit, but was very snug and ran shorter than expected. It is a beautiful dress though.

GORGEOUS
This dress is comfortable and absolutely beautiful. Fits like a glove, not as loose as the picture would have you believe. And holy moly, are the sequins gorgeous. Rent this, you won't be disappointed.

Gorgeous, shiny cocktail shift!
Pros: Super cute cocktail dress! A real showstopper. Every single person I spoke with mentioned the dress and how fantastic it was. The length was perfect, short but still appropriate. The sleeve length was nice too. I wore a size larger than usual to get the bagginess of the shift featured in the model's photo, and it worked out perfectly. Cons: The sequins definitely rub on your arms and I had a slight underarm rash from it the next day.

I LOVE this dress - so cute and really flattering to a lot of body types
I'm incredibly sad that I don't have pictures in this dress because I loved it soooooooooo much. I wore this to my company's office party. The theme was Bollywood and I refused to dress up in traditional clothing. I thought the sequins would still remain true to the theme. Like some of the other reviewers said, this dress is tighter - more body con, than the photo and the model. This dress was also pretty short on me, I had to make very sure that I sat "properly" throughout the night. But the dress fit like a glove and was really comfortable all night. I would definitely rent this again!

Fit was true to size and although it had sequins, there was a layer underneath so it wasn't itchy.

Show stopper
I ordered this for my sister, who is 16, to wear to our holiday cocktail party and it looked phenomenal on her! The 2 fit perfectly and she received a ton of compliments. The back is gorgeous (it dips a little) and it was not too short. We loved it!

Beautiful dress, but very scratchy
I rented this for a holiday party. I was looking forward to just wearing the dress with tights, but I had to wear a blazer with it because the sequins really irritated my arms. Within 10 minutes, my arms were red and itchy. It looked and fit well, though!

Comfortable yet sassy & unique!
It's not super short, so I was able to wear it to my company party without fear. Got TONS of compliments on it even in a *sea* of sequin dresses at a Young Professionals gala. Every sequin in the county was in that room but this dress stood out because of the unique pattern! I have wide shoulders and large bust and this fit easily and comfortably!

I didn't end up wearing this dress and had to return it.
The 0 was too small in the hips and the 2 was too big in the chest. The model in the picture makes this dress look like a sheath dress — but you will only look like this if you have no hips at all. It's more of a form fitting mini dress than a loose and casual dress. Also, its made complete out of sequence, so it's more formal that it appears on the site.

Perfect for a company holiday party, paired with black tights. Got lots of compliments!
Fit is tighter in the hips than on top/around chest. Sequin nature of the dress will appear "worn out" after time.

Sparkly & fun.
The dress fit great. It was comfortable for the most part, but like with any full sequin top, it rubbed on the underpart of my arm. If I hadn't been doing a lot of dancing it wouldn't have bothered me as much. Otherwise the dress was great, and I got a lot of compliments. It was a little tighter than I thought it would be because it looks more like a shift on the model, but I didn't mind. There wasn't a whole lot of difference between the 0 & 2, but I went with the 0. It seemed to be more snug where it needed to be.

The dresses I ordered showed up in pristine condition and even came with a couple of NYE headbands!
This dress was perfect for a NYE party. It fits pretty true to size, maybe a tad bit large. I usually wear a size 0 or 2 and I ordered both sizes in the dress, but liked the 0 better as it was a little more fitted around the stomach. The dress is really comfortable and easy to move in.

Fabulous Dress
Loved it... Wasn't as loose at it looks on the model, go figure?? :) But still a fabulous dress, I would say it tends to run on the small end, so def go with the larger of the two sizes you normally wear. Got tons of compliments and loved wearing it.

Perfect dress for NYE in Vegas!
I am really glad I went with this dress! I received several compliments, and the dress was comfortable! I ordered size 2 and 4, and ended up wearing the 4. The sequins were only itchy under the arms. Definitely the perfect dress for a night out in Vegas!

Didn't wear because it was a back-up
As others mentioned, this dress is more form fitting than it appears on the model - which I like! I liked the fit of the dress, however I rented this as a back-up and the first choice worked out so I didn't wear. I would think about renting it for future events.

Cute dress, runs short
I didn't end up wearing this because it was too short and tight across the hips for a wedding, but it was super-cute. The sequin were all over (I thought from the pic that the gold part was sequined and the black was a different material), but it was nice looking and not too much, like some sequined dresses. The cap sleeves were cute and the back had a bit of a scoop, but could still wear a regular bra. Almost wore it to the wedding, but chickened out because it felt too short even with dark tights (hit at mid-thigh).

Love the dress, not the fit.
I rented this for my birthday but didn't end up wearing it. I tried on both the 6 and the 8 but neither fit well. I have wider hips and this shift style didn't look very flattering. The dress was beautiful and would have been fun to wear but just didn't' work for me.

So easy and fun!
Loved the look of this dress. The cons were it ran a bit small (usually wear a 4, thank goodness i sized up for my spare size!). Also, the material is somewhat delicate and had a bunch of strings fraying. On the back one string got pulled and the seam came out. I used to fashion tape they provided so it ended up being fine. I wore this to a work holiday party and got compliments all night. Would still recommend.

Beautiful sequined dress, more body con than expected
As other reviewers described, this dress does NOT fit like the model's photo. It is much tighter, particularly in the stomach/hip area. Still loved the dress and received many compliments throughout the night. Dress is very fragile and sequins/mesh could easily catch/tear. Did not have issues with scratchiness on underarms.

All the compliments I received!
I wore this dress for a holiday party. Not only did I love this dress, but everyone else did too! I received a ton of compliments from everyone!! I was nervous as to how the dress would fit so I ordered it in a 6 and an 8. The 8 was too big and the 6 was a perfect fit. Although it didn't fit me the same as it did the model, I was still pleased overall. I would order this dress again for any event I wanted to make a statement at.

Returned It--Bad For Curves!
I'm a curvy girl--as in I have an hourglass figure, not that I'm plus sized--and this dress is NOT the look for my body type. if you have a booty and boobs, you'll look like a giant rectangle since this dress doesn't pinch in at the waist at all. It's better suited for boyish bodies so that the garment can sort of hover around the body, because when it clings, it's not good!

Beautiful dress, very unique!
Ordered this dress for a Gatsby themed fundraiser. It does run small, the 6 was tighter than I normally wear but the dress didn't look too tight. Form fitting, not like the picture. Would recommend ordering your normal size and one size up. I loved it, but it was an unexpectedly cold night and my back up dress looked better with black tights. This is very elegant.

It was fresh, fun and fancy!!!
This dress was fun to wear and it was a perfect fit. One thing about this material (sequin) it tends to rub the skin on the inside of the arm, but nothing a little aloe lotion can't fix. It looks great in person and in pictures.

A great party dress!
I really enjoyed wearing this dress! It's sparkly without making you look like a disco ball (something I always worry about with sparkly dresses and tops.) If you want a shift look, like how the dress appears on the model, then the dress runs small, but if you want something more form-fitting then you can go with your normal size and be fine. The length is definitely short and I have long legs so I wound up wearing black tights, which looked good. I wish I had a picture to share!

Wore this for my bachelorette in NOLA!
It fits great! I got tons of compliments on it- it IS a little scratchy under the arms, but nothing that caught my attention during the night. It is definitely more snug than the pictures show- but it's thick so it is not unflattering. I would definitely rent this one again for another bachelorette or even a New Year's party. Loved it!

So many compliments!!!
Before renting this dress I read all the other reviews/pictures and one thing that everyone said was the this dress is a little tight on this hips, this is true! It does pull some but it didn't make the dress uncomfortable! I loved this dress, it was the perfect length! Under my arms hurt a little because of the sequins rubbing my arms but I didn't notice it until the night was almost over! It isn't skin tight but also not too baggy which I loved for my body type. I would definitely rent this dress again and suggest it to my friends! I felt great and its looks awesome with red shoes!

Very cute dress
I tried the 4 and 6. Both fit well but the 6 was more comfortable for me. I wore it with flat boots and a leather jacket but it could easily be worn for a much fancier event as well. The dress was in great condition and I got lots of compliments!

Not a great fit.
I rented this dress to wear to dinner for my birthday. I ordered up two sizes since the reviews mentioned that it ran small, but even that didn't do it. The dress was SUPER tight, especially around the hips and it was also really stretched out at the bottom hem. I ended up not being able to wear either size. To wear this dress I'd say you have to be very petite or rent quite a few sizes larger than normal.

Dress fit well, but definitely not as "shift" as appears on model. A great dress though. I would definitely recommend it!
