Color and material is great

Fits large in the hips and fitted in the bust/ I would not rent again and had to wear because it was my only option :(

Stunning dress! Would love in any color!

Don't like the clasp at the top of the dress- gets caught in your hair. Zipper is too stiff.

I got compliments all night! Great color and unique style!

It was a VERY comfortable dress! So much I didn't even change for the after party! There seemed to be a little bit of material that stuck out around the hip area, but it could've been because it was a teeny bit big. I meant to order the small size (10) but accidentally ordered a 14. So a 10 might have been a little more fitting. But the 12 still looked great!

Cute Style, Terrible fit!!

Very odd fit- weird structured hips that stick out. The cut on the shoulders is also very deep and shows a lot of side boob. Unfortunately this didn't work for me. I am usually a size 0/2 and the size 4 was tight.

fit and flare!

great dress. material was thick and kept everything in its place. the length of the dress was perfect with 4 inch heels. it gave shape to my figure, something that not all dresses that forms around my body can do. i would rent this again and would consider buying this.

Hippy

Beautifully made dress and fabric. When I tried it on and zipped it up the hip area was really big. I have no hips at all and it looked silly on me.

Lots of compliments

I wore this for a fundraiser. The material of the dress was heavy, very high quality. Fits like a glove. I am a size 6 in dress (have to put that 34C in) and the size 6 (10 UK) fits perfect. Depending on your chest size you might have a bit of a side boob going on (I did) but nothing than fashion tape cannot help with. Overall great dress, got tons of compliments throughout the night. Dress is more on the orange hue than red FYI.

Fabulous dress!

This dress needs to fit like a glove so I sized down. I'm normally a 6 but got the 4( 8 in UK sizing). The 6 was too roomy in the hips and had weird points sticking out at the hips. It is a stretchy fabric that needs to fit very snug. Also, you definitely need to have a sticky bra (Nubra) to pull your boobs inward or else you have your boobs coming out the sides. It also shows everything so wear spanx!

Pure Heaven. Comments? Ravishing, Queen, pure elegance, stunning, million bucks. Wish I had photo

Lucious fabric. Must wear breast petals as arm cut is super low. Zipper needs a +1 (neighbor obliged!) runs small. Glad I got a 12 as I danced all night. Perfect dress for my Fashionable late arrival. All eyes on me dress. 5'7" required heels.

Beautiful color and material - Lots of compliments, fun dress!

Beautiful color and material - did feel a little insecure about the arm crease area and definitely makes the hips look wide. Lots of compliments, fun dress!

Really comfortable!

Definitely can't wear any undergarments with this but thankfully this whole dress is like one big spanx. My only complaint is that the neck is so high that the hook closure got caught in my hair a few times.

It was a very flattering fit & the color was great for our summer formal gala. Danced the night away.

Got compliments on night on color & fit!

The dress runs big/runs true to size. I ordered the smallest available 4R, which equates to a 0 according to the size options. My normal size is 0, so that is why I say it runs true to size, also! The color & fit are beautiful. The material is quite thick, which is a double edged sword. It worked as it's own "Spanx" & gave me a great shape, but it was a little warm for the summer wedding (thankfully it was indoor). The high neck and low cut sides make it sexy & sophisticated & a perfect style for a formal Summer wedding. One thing to note, I could not wear a bra with it because the sides are so low. I used chicken cutlets (not pictured in my image) to give a little more fullness, but I had to position them really close so they wouldn't stick out on the side. I would recommend pasties if you are worried about nipples showing. Also, I thought I would be swallowed up in the dress because I am only 5'1", 115lbs and there seemed to be a lot of material, but it fit me perfectly! Would recommend!

So unique, so flattering, so comfortable.

Wore to a black tie wedding; the material is thick, almost like a wetsuit, so it was perfect for the 60 degree weather. Stretchy but fitted. Loved it.

Armholes are almost to the waist!! (ok - a bit of hyperbole)

I never know what size to order in English designers. I am a 4-6 so I tried the 10. It was ok through the bust, but the hips were so large that they had a life of their own. That, and the armholes were so low that you could see the top AND THE BOTTOM of my bra on the side. Not wearable for me. Color and fabric were nice, though.

Heavy, uncomfortable

Beautiful style and color, but this dress is very heavy and uncomfortable. The clasp at the top of the turtleneck as scratching the back of my neck and getting caught in my hair. Also runs small, wore a 14, usually an 8. A 12 would've probably fit better and hugged my figure, but it was not available.

Nice dress, but I should've sized up

The dress is more an orange-red than a pure corvette red. Still nice, very bright, but not what I was expecting. A 4R (equivalent to a US 2) was too tight. I may have considered wearing this to my event I sized up.

I did not end up choosing this address for my event.

This dress was categorized as "year round," but once seeing it in person I'd never wear it for a spring or summer event. Material is heavy and it definitely gives off winter / holiday vibes. Also if you have a larger chest be prepared to show some side boob.

Stylist Review

I love this feminine and chic dress by Solace London!! Running true to size, I recommend your usual size as your primary and going one size up for a backup size. This dress is comfortable throughout the midsection and fitted at the hips, however it still felt comfortable/had some stretch. It works best for A-C cup sizes, as this dress is fitted at the bust. This style should be worn with a strapless bra. The cut of the dress is asymmetrical and hits just below the knee. I absolutely love the style of this dress, it is super flattering and fun! I would definitely pair it with nude heels (as pictured), a pretty, yet delicate pair of earrings and a statement handbag.

The pop of red was great!

The dress is a nice and stretchy material, but was definitely right through the middle. I loved the high neck, but felt the arm holes were oddly large. I am not super chesty and was a little nervous about side boob the whole night. Length was great with heels for me. I am 5’3 and about 135. I carry my weight more in my hips and rear so I liked the flare out around that area.

Super stylish. Thick fabric. Would wear again.

I wore a 6R (UK size 10R). The length was perfect. The neck was a little tight but you get used to it quickly. I wore 2in nude heels. Strapless Bra or no bra is best.

I loved everything about this dress except the side boob issue.

The dress is quality and flattering. Unfortunately, I was not able to wear because I was not able to figure out how to wear a bra that did not show or anything to not have excessive side boob.

Cute but heavy

Dress was very cute- did not end up wearing it for a summer wedding, but liked the cut. A bit stiff and very heavy fabric. Probably best for fall or winter.
