Utterly show-stopping!

I'm a US 4 and that's essentially the size I got. Had to squeeze into this but once it was on it was totally fine. Don't wear if you have to climb a lot of stairs. But this dress THOUGH...I have NEVER received more compliments at an event as I did when I wore this. I felt like the belle of the ball! Do not rent if you don't like attention, if you're shy, seriously! #GLAMOROUS #STUNNING #LOVE

Not for short women

I'm a huge fan of solace london but this dress just swallowed me. It is a beautifully constructed dress and the fabric has a little stretch to it.

Very, very small!!!!

I rented a 4 and a 6 in this dress...usually wear 4 or even a 2... and I couldn't get it over my hips! Order much larger. Did not end up wearing, but exchanged in store for another dress.

Stunning dress!!!

Very thick material with just enough stretch to hold you in, in all the right places!! Stunning color and design. Only downside is it's so long and I prefer midi length. It's too heavy to use double sided tape to shorten. I'm 5'5" for 5'9" it'd be perfect. I have d cup breasts and too many drinks and the girls would be popping out with the wrong move! But absolutely amazing! I was worried about the other reviews. But if you're curvy and like low cut this is perfect! I wore size British size 12 which is a US size 8. I'm usually an 8 in dresses.

Loved this dress

Loved this dress. Wore it to take family photos and it photographed nicely. I am normally a size 4/6 and I rented the 10 and it fit perfectly. Not great for big boobs (I'm a 34ddd and had to keep tucking the girls in) but was still able to wear it without a bra. The dress is very heavy too, and great thick material.

Sexy Show Stopper

I loved this dress! I got compliments ALL night. I felt so sexy and beautiful. I had to order 4 sizes bigger than my normal size because the sizes were European I believe so a 12 UK = 8 US. The material and dress itself was a little heavy but overall and amazing outfit for the night.

Show stopper!!!

This dress will completely steal attention from any other outfit in the room! I've stopped counting the compliments. British sizing, so order up or you will be disappointed! It's very fitting, so I opted for wearing it to a cocktail event vs. sit down dinner. The fabric does stretch though, so it wasn't too uncomfortable. I will totally rent this dress again!!

Truly stunning dress, the most compliments I have ever received :) highly recommended - though runs very small! I usually wear a size 8 and rented 12 and though it fit, my hips would have appreciated more room:)

Amazing!!!

Gorgeous thick fabric and stunning construction/quality. Felt like a million bucks and got compliments all night. The US sizing is true to size so just look at that instead of the U.K. Sizing.

Amazing dress for my birthday!

Absolutely loved this dress! Not much more to say then the other renters. I love the thick material, but it wasn't too hot. I wore a shaper under it that went up to straps around my shoulders but I didn't need to/couldn't wear a bra with this. But my 34 C/Ds were absolutely fine with no bra because of the thick material. Everyone has complimented me on this dress. I'm 5'4" so you can see it goes down to my shins but I loved it. The dress is amazing in every way. I did end up wearing the U.K. 12 / US 8. I'm normally a 4/6 depending on the brand. LOVED

Unique dress- but size UP!

This was such a fun dress to wear on vacation! My only complaint, aside from having to size up to a size 10 (UK 14), is that it stretches out throughout the night. This was a perfect dress for my very tall frame!

Unique and a head turner!

Loved this dress! Got a ton of compliments. Fabric is thick and sturdy, but panty lines still show through and spanx may be necessary. It was heavy, but in 95 degree weather it wasn't too hot. Definitely a little work to sit down in and you have to adjust the fabric to be more flattering, but standing up it hung great and fit like a glove. You won't be disappointed with this dress.

Love this dress

It was so hard to put this dress in Ups box!!!! It's so comfortable, not heavy at all and simply stunning, with absolutely no signs of wear, great statement dress! I wore the UK size 10 and i'm 5'7", 135 lb. for a tighter look I would've for sure fit in a UK size 8, but I'm happy I chose this one, gave me enough room to be comfortable, even after eating. Love, love, love this dress!

Love this dress

So this story starts off bad, my dress wasn't delivered on time, RTR warehouse isn't far from me (thank goodness) so I was giving a different size that was rather snug. I made it work anyhow. I got a lot of compliments and I truly love this dress. Would rent it again... in the right size

Showstopper!!

I am very petite and the dress fit me like it was sewn on my body. I have a larger bust so double sided tape was much needed and helped to keep the girls in the dress. I wore this to an art gala and was stopped at least 5x by bloggers, and journalists to take pictures for their fashion report. This dress was EVERYTHING, I got compliments all night long!

Most compliments I've ever received!

I ordered a 10 (size 6), and I was nervous because previous reviews stated that the dress runs small. I guess it just depends on your body, because the dress FIT LIKE A GLOVE. I've never received more compliments! GET THE DRESS! The material, the fit, the style, everything about this dress was amazing!

This was a substitution for a dress

It wasnt the right color for the bridesmaids so I couldnt wear it. But I did try it on. Its a very interesting construction but very hard to move your thighs so not good for an event with dancing. I dont normally wear dresses this tight so I am not sure if it ran small or just not how I like to wear clothes. The fabric is kind of thick so better for underwear lines.

Unique & gorgeous

If you're not afraid of a little "extraness" this is definitely the dress for you. Fit true to size, fitted enough not to wear a bra (it's actually too low cut to wear one either way)

Hugs curves, forgiving material, unique wraparound ruffle!

This dress fit like a glove! I ordered this to possibly wear to a wedding but due to the color I wound up choosing something more summery. I will definitely rent this for a city event where I can GRAY ALL DAY. The bust seemed a lot more gaping and low cut on others pictured; I am very small-busted and I had no problem wearing this with a padded strapless bra. Pasties would also work, and I might use them for the real event if I rent this again. The ruffle is so much fun! The placement is unusual, and attached to such a body-hugging garment, you'll be sure to steal the show! I'm more straight and narrow from the front, but I have a booty, so this definitely highlights some assets; however, if you're not curvy anywhere, this dress may fall a bit flatter.

Stepping out my comfort zone

Most compliments I've ever received at a wedding. Definitely a beautiful dress. Fit like a glove. I felt amazing and sexy. I've never wore a dress that showed so much "cleavage." It took a lot of courage and confidence to wear this but worth it.

Loved this dress!

Rented this dress for a wedding in Chicago - the thick material for perfect for a chilly Chitown summer. Solace runs very small, so ended up wearing the larger size ordered. Didn't need fashion tape as I've got a smaller bust. Highly recommend this dress keeping in mind the brand runs small and tight!

A standout

Pros: Very different, great fabric. I wore this to a wedding and received compliments from at least five women I didn't know. Cons: I was not able to zip fully by myself and the bottom is too tight to lift up, so I could not use the restroom without a buddy. Shows A LOT of boob. I had to use dress tape and be really vigilant about making sure I wasn't showing nipple. However, given the number of compliments I received, I assume it was not indecent. This dress is really really snug, so not good for dancing or eating, if you are into those sorts of things. However I don't think it would look good sized up. It's clearly intended to be skin tight.

Hi Sweetheart dress looks amazing on you! I am 5'2 105 and a 34C so I am very similar to your size! Did you really ahve to wear a size 6? Also since we are both peite yet a bit busty are you able to wear a bra at all with this dress or would anything show? Hows the clevage in this dress is it like va va voom or is jst a litle bit and classy? Thanks so much I am considering this dress and your advice would be very helpful.

Rental #27 TIGHT AND BE READY TO BUST OUT

Usually a size 2, I knew I had to size up based on reviews. Size 8 worked. Tight but helps booty. Had to take bra off I was busting out! )34D) but good dress without bra. Not for the shy gal

Stunning! If you can squeeze into it.

If I could buy this dress, I would. I have never gotten so many compliments in my life. However... like all the reviews before me, this dress runs VERY SMALL!!!! Aside from the US vs UK sizing difference, this dress runs small even for European standards. I took a risk by only going up one size from my normal size, I think that I should have gone up at least two sizes. The only major difference between the two sizes that I ordered was the length of the torso of the dress. The material is a bit thick but it's nice that it sucks you all in. It's definitely a showstopper and I absolutely loved it!

Showstopper!

After reading all the reviews, I rented both my usual size 4 and the 6. The 6 felt better on the body but it was too large on the sleeves with extra fabric in the front and back...so if you are small up top, going with your regular size may be best. Overall this was an amazing dress, but not for the faint of heart with its low neckline ...heard compliments all night.

Beautiful but SOOOO SMALL

I normally wear a six. I read the reviews about it being on the small size. I got an 8 and couldn't get it over my butt! So if you have any sort of curves, be cautious of this dress!

Elegance for days!

I rented this dress for my birthday dinner and party. I absolutely loved it. I read the reviews that it ran small so ordered up. The size is a US 8. It fit like a glove. The material is thick so it keeps everything in place. The neckline is provocative but it exposes the right amount. I highly recommend this dramatic effect dress.

Love Love Love

Unique and fun dress! Runs small, definitely recommend sizing up. I tried the sizes 6 & 8 and the 6 was too tight, the 8 was just right. Minimal accessories are needed because the dress stands out on its own. I wore a sticky strapless bra for a little lift.

Showstopper

Pros: Daring, bold, and different. The dress stands out. I had compliments all night long, from both men and women. And while very form fitting and low-cut, the structure and material of the dress looked fashionable without looking cheap. Cons: The dress definitely runs small.. To be honest, I have gained a little bit of weight since my last rental, but even the UK 6 was very tight. Also, I personally required a friend to help me unzip and zip up the dress whenever using the restroom. And unfortunately, the structure and material (which makes it look high class) prohibited me from dancing my heart out, due to the non-stretchy fabric. Recommendations: double sided tape to keep your ladies in place. Overall: totally worth it.
