Incredibly flattering and a subtle standout

Fit was fantastic. I rented both uk10/us6 and uk12/us8 and both fit well. The six was tight and true to size. The 8 draped very will since it was a bit larger, but I ended up going with the six because it fit my waist so well. It was tight in the hips but the front slit is well constructed and didn't gap out on me. The neck was quite tight so I left it just an inch unzipped. No one touched. I got tons of compliments all night and loved the dress. I'm larger that my normal size right now but felt amazing in this dress. I went with high spans and no bra. I'm small-avg up top but with the double layered fabric you couldn't tell and it allowed the material to drape even closer to the skin and in my opinion was more flattering. I loved this rental even though I usually rent dresses with low necklines. Definitely go for it with this one, I was happy I went out on a limb!

So many compliments

Loved the shape of this dress! The neck was super tight though, had to unzip it to swallow my meal comfortably. There's also no graceful way to sit in it...

Beautiful unique panel dress

I wore this dress to a black tie award ceremony. I'm not usually a conservative person, but I wanted something that would be refined/classy and still stand out. I received a lot of compliments and stares, and definitely didn't feel conservative thanks to the slit and the tight fit. I'm 32 years old and have more of a stomach than I used to, and the 10L (US 6) didn't make that too obvious, hugging my body in a flattering way. The larger size 12L (US 8) looked lumpier and unflattering. I'm also fairly straight and narrow and the 10L made me look curvier in the best possible way. I agree with the rest of the reviewers that the neck is too tight, but I don't think anyone noticed I didn't have it zipped all the way. Finally, while I did wear 3" heels, the 10L wasn't long enough on my 5'9" frame and was the best length in my bare feet. I don't think it looked too bad with heels on so I went for it anyway. If you're OK with the length in my picture, I'd say go for it. Otherwise you'll want to skip. It's sad that the L length isn't long enough for even slightly taller than average people.

Fun

The dress was really lovely -- though a little summery for my November event. Like many reviewers it runs small so instead of a 0 I opted for a 2 which was perfect -- other than the length which was still a bit long in my 6+ inch heels.

Best dressed

Besides the neck being a little tight, this was the perfect dress. I usually wear a 4 and the 8 (British sizing) fit well. I'm about 5'8 and with heels the dress was close to being short. The 8L was a good length with heels but i wore the 8 bc the 8L came with a hole. Got so many compliments and felt awesome all night

Best dress at the wedding

Loved this dress! So unique and Obvious it is a designed dress. One of the guests came up to me to tell me it was the best dress at the wedding. Only complaint is the neck is SUPER tight. Definitely size up - this dress is not forgiving in the middle. I was sucking it in all night, but the look was worth it.

Just different enough to not fade into the crowd.

The dress was stunning and brought tons of compliments. Be sure to note the U.K. sizing. I'm a solid 8 and the chart converted to the 12 which was spot on. The neck was snug as noted, but the 14 was too loose in the everywhere else. I followed previous recommendations and rented the long. At 5'8" with 3" heels it just skimmed the floor.

Perfect for a wedding reception at the Denver Art Museum.

I'm 5'7 /140 pounds and usually wear a size 4-6. The 8L fit perfectly with 2 inch nude heels. Only con? I expected more compliments but did receive a few,"I love your dress" comments. ;p

Dress you'll look and feel great in!

Can't say enough good things about this dress. Felt great in all day and night for a friends wedding. The dress is made of a great quality fabric which will fit like a glove while keeping form. Neck was tight. It I zipped it up most of the way and no one would notice it wasn't completely closed. Would definitely rent again!

If I had the option to purchase I would!

I received soooooo many compliments on the dress and I absolutely loved the style. Wish I could keep it honestly. The fabric was great and there was stretch. I'm usually a size 8 or 6 in dresses depending on the style/fit. My initial plan was to order a backup in a size smaller which would have fit better but they didn't have any available. Therefore it could have been a little tighter but ordering it without the backup size I knew that would have been an issue. I would consider getting a back up in a size smaller to be safe.

Work gala

I ordered something else online and it didn't fit and ended up going into the San Francisco store. The sales person talked me into it because I didn't want to try it on. Wow I am I glad I did it! Beautiful dress and I got so many compliments. I normally wear a size 8 and ended up wearing a 14. Definitely read the measurements on this one.

Simple but elegant

Wore this to a charity event at the Art Institute of Chicago and it was a perfectly complimentary dress for a gallery occasion! Super comfortable and somewhat thicker fabric which hides little imperfections really well. Neck was a little tight on me but otherwise great dress. I was worried the slit would be too high for me because I have a long torso but it was perfectly positioned. Would definitely rent this again.

Luxury and comfort!

Wow! This dress is made of high quality and stretch fabric. The thickness allows it to hang nicely over curves. Some complain of the neck being tight. It's true, but I only left the hook undone at the top. So fun to wear and I received numerous compliments. I'm 5'6" tall and wore the Long with 3.5" heels. Usually wear a size 6 and chose the 10.

Perfect reception dress!

LOVED this dress--it fit like a glove and the fabric was very forgiving. I felt super glamorous and slender even though I've gone up a size or two in the past year. As other reviewers mentioned, I couldn't zip the neck all the way, so I wore my hair down.

Unique dress for a Tuscan wedding!

Loved this dress and received so many compliments. I wanted something that wouldn't look like every other dress at the wedding and found it in this! Runs small (European sizing). I'm usually an 8 and wore a 12L. Long was perfect length - I'm 5ft 9 and wore 3inch heals. One more thing on sizing, I had to size up for the chest/back which did make it a bit baggy in the legs and booty, but this probably has more to do with my build. Boy figures be aware! Overall, loved it!

This does not seem to run small

Based on the many reviews saying the dress runs very small, I sized up two sizes. I was swimming in the dress. I suspect there might have been some confusion due to the UK sizing. The listing now shoes both U.K. and US sizing, so I will try on my normal US dress size. Otherwise, the dress is unique and seems comfortable.

Snappy look for work black tie gala

Loved this dress!! Wore the 8R UK (4R US) which felt true to size. Thick fabric, hides lumps (but wouldnt be ideal in warmer months or climates). Lovely navy color and cool detail panel. Wearing 3 or 4 inch heels in this photo (I'm 5'6"). As others mentioned, neck felt tight when zipped all the way up but it was no problem to leave it open a smidge. High neckline felt appropriate for a work-oriented gala. I felt good in this dress.

Photoshoot dress

Rented this for a photoshoot. Glad i didnt have to move too much.... it was snug around the neck- I kept feeling like i was choking. Runs small, glad i got the next size up just in case. Otherwise a beautiful dress and would (possibly) wear it again.

I loved this rental!! Wore it to a black tie wedding, and it was great! So comfortable, the fabric is thick and feels high quality, and the slit makes it have a sexy edge! Highly recommend- but this dress definitely runs small, so order your backup size one up

Extremely comfortable

I'm glad I opted for the size up. I'm often a size 4 but the size 6 was a better fit, still form fitting. Very comfortable. A little tight in the neck so I left the zipper open a bit in back.

The dress is very tight in the upper body and the neck. I ended up wearing a different dress.

Very tight in the upper body and neck. Could not zip it all the way up as it was to tight on the neck. Could not wear it.

Didn't wear this because the fabric is much thicker than I thought. If the wedding were indoors/at night then I probably would have. The silhouette is beautiful, it's modern and elegant, however the neck is extremely tight.

Unforgettable dress!

Fits pretty snug! I usually wear a 4 in dresses, so I sized up per the suggestions from previous reviews. I ordered the 8R and had the 10R as back up; the 8R fit like a glove! The material is definitely form-fitting but still classy and elegant. Although the neck felt a bit tight, I was able to zip up the zipper all the way to the top with no problems. The art on the front and back of the dress added a unique touch, and I received tons of compliments throughout the night! Definitely a showstopper without being too flashy.

Definitely a compliment worthy dress--I am a 2 but wore a 4. Big difference between the 2/4--I ordered both. It is right around neck as others have noted but not to the point where I wouldn't wear again.
