Omg this dress was amazing!! 80s Katherine Turner dreams come true

I absolutely love this dress! Definitely 80s addicted to love/Katherine turner in the War of the Roses vibe! Deep v and high slit but still incredibly classy!! Wore it out and got a ton of compliments! I would definitely rent again! Would not recommend for a large bust though.

Sexy must have!!!

I am so in love with this dress and received endless compliments. I did not want to return it and will probably rent it again or buy it. The fit was perfect and it was very sexy but still classy.

Normally I like to show off some cleavage but this was inappropriately low.

NYE

Ran big - I am usually a 4 in dresses and the small fit perfectly. Definitely need fashion tape, too deep to wear a bra, slot wasn't so high to be prohibitive. Revealing, but with the right styling it is super chic. The draping on top actually has a double layer (one silky and kind of like a tank top and one layer of draped fabric) that you can't really see in the picture. I ended up taping the right side so the bottom layer wasn't as exposed. Fits pretty true to what it looks like on the model - fit and fabric were great. The black makes it less risqué. Will rent again.

Gorgeous and classic piece, excellent fabric and daring cut.

I rented this dress for NYE, it was gorgeous and I received many compliments! Note that it does run large to size, the small was big in the arms and chest. Be sure to purchase double sided fabric tape to keep everything in place, since it has a plunging neckline, it's a little revealing for a formal affair, but great for a party if you're wanting to make a statement!

Classic with sex appeal

Modest thanks to the long sleeves Sexy thanks to the high slit and low plunge Pros: super comfy, great material, elegant but still sexy! Cons: Sleeves were maybe an inch too long, bust area was very big (I used double sided tape to fix that) I wore it to my birthday dinner but wished I had a fancier engagement to wear it to!

Little too revealing but incredibly sexy...

Overall great dress, but had to pin the front a little so as to ensure that I wouldn't flash the entire restaurant on my date. Aside from that, paired with tights and heels it made for an amazing winter date night outfit. Hard to feel sexy when you're dressed for 20 degree weather but this dress made it happen!

Unforgettable dress

Love love loved this dress! Perfect a cocktail party or social event. The smaller size fit better than the medium. Fashion tape was needed, but it was so worth it. Lots of compliments and my date could not keep his hands off me!

Classy and sexy!

This dress was amazing! I gave it 5 stars because I have never felt so good in a long sleeve, high slit, lowcut dress! I will say that I had to safety pin the middle just a little because the neckline was a little too low for me, but it worked out perfectly ! I wore the medium instead of the small simplest because the small was a little too tight on my hips/thighs and made the slit very inappropriate, but the medium was perfect! I recommend this dress! Love it!

Wow! Mega sexy dress!!

I got tons of compliments on this dress! Very very sexy. I found it hard to put on so my husband had to help. The arms were a bit tight as well, but it worked out great! It was pretty comfortable once I had it on. Loved this dress!

Drapes in all the wrong ways

You need an epically long and broad-but-lean torso to pull this dress off. It didn't do any favors for my puny 5'4 frame.

Really sexy!

Super gorgeous dress, but very daring so I wouldn't recommend it for anything other than a glam night out. The slit on the dress was so high that I had to keep a napkin over my legs all night at dinner! :) Overall fit was good, though the inside straps were very very long so I had to safety pin it up to keep my boobs from falling out! If I didn't have long hair to cover the pins, it would've been an issue. Otherwise it was great & super flattering. Also, the material was thicker than you'd expect so it's an excellent cooler weather dress.

No coverage in the front

I couldn't even wear the dress. It fit perfectly except for the front that didn't even remotely cover my chest. Tried with a bra and without. I'm only a c cup but there was no way to pull this off.

This dress was stunning, fit like a glove!

I loved the material, it was very high quality. This dress was a lot more revealing than what I M used to wearing, but the tights underneath and a little fashion tape really did the trick. Would suggest renting this dress for a party, or evening occasion!

Loved it. Dress made me feel mature and sexy sophicated ! Showy in all the right places. I am 5'1....130 lbs. sleeves were a little long so i just cuffed it once. Super comfortable. Needed a little bit of double sided tape just in case for when i danced.

Perfect NYE Dress for Black Tie

This dress worked PERFECTLY for me. I ordered it as a back-up and loved it more than the one I had planned to wear. This was for a black tie party and was surprisingly comfortable. The top was a little loose, but I just pinned up the inner lining and problem solved! Definitely recommend this dress!

Nice little LBD

The sleeves are long and I had to roll them, plus a button was missing on one... but that didn't affect the fit. The front did keep sliding even with tape and I am not large chested... so be mindful of that!!! Wish it was a little more fitted in the front and not as baggy.

Really wanted to wear but rented to late

I got this dress and was hoping it would fit. But when i rented they only had xs s and l. If i had rented it more in advance i probaly would have worn the M (if it fit me) The dress has no stretch so get a size larger!!!

A little odd in the shoulders. Super revealing. No way to wear a bra. Overall, unusual, unique, edgy piece.

Sexy for a bachelorette party

I love this dress! I felt so sexy & received so many compliments. It was perfect for a club night for a bachelorette party I went to in NYC. It was warm but still sexy & revealing. I wore pasties & never felt the top move out of place and the slit stays put on the side. I am seriously thinking about buying this dress I loved it so much!!

Sexy but SO scandalous

The slit is incredibly high, I am only 5'5 but I had to bobbypin the slit to make it more appropriate. If you are relatively "hippy" you might want to size up since the tighter the hip area, the higher the slit. I also fashion taped the bust as this dress ideally works for people with smaller busts IMO. Because this dress needs a lot of adjusting and pinning and taping, I would not recommend this for an event that has a lot of activity like dancing or walking around.

Sexy and comfortable dress, perfect for Vegas!

I wore this dress for my friend's birthday in Vegas and it was honestly so so comfortable. The fabric is amazing quality so you don't have to worry about any sheer-ness, it was way thicker than I thought it would be. Since I'm petite, the sleeves were extremely long on me so I had to fold them up. They stayed folded the whole night so it wasn't an issue. The necklace was a little bit low cut for my taste, so I just used a safety pin to fix it. Overall this dress is high quality and very in style with the high slit.

I was so obsessed with this dress

This dress made me feel so good ! The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because the chest area was so so so loose , I would have had some serious slippage if I didn't wear the black lace bra underneath

Call it a skirt because it has zero coverage

The engineering of this dress leaves a lot to desire..... it has actually no coverage at all of the midriff, to a hilarious degree. You couldn't actually ever wear this.

Sexy but sophisticated

I absolutely loved this dress. It fit like a glove. The slit case up high but it was fine for me. Only when I sat it would ride up a little bit. All in all, 10/10 I'd rent this again. I got so many compliments on it all night, and it's so ultra sexy. I love when dresses look good on girls who don't have big boobs- this is one of them! It's sleek, sexy and not over bearing at all. I will be renting this again!!!! I was tempted to keep it actually!!!

Very Flattering!

Really loved this dress! I wore it for my anniversary date. I usually wear a medium but the top was a little too big. I got a small as backup and ended up wearing the small. The split is pretty high and the dress is very low cut so it's definitely sexy, but it's still flattering.

Interesting fit

The dress has an interesting double layer front - like a sewn in cami and then sleeves. NOT for flat chested girls- my boobs would have just slid right out. Could be stunning if you have the chest for it!

I didn't end up wearing the dress for a party, thank goodness for LBD backups.

This dress ran a bit too large in my opinion, I think I was thrown off by the alpha sizing. I rented a S with M as a backup, but probably should have rented an XS. As others mentioned - dress tape is likely a must if you don't fill out the chest, but the S also felt big through the entire body.

Love this dress. Received lots of compliments. Flattering.

Order a Med and LG for a back up. Med fit great on the top however the slit was a little to high. LG fit better and slit was manageable. However the top was big. I work with it and used fashion tape.

Ran small, impossible to re-situate to feel comfortable

I wanted to love this dress. The concept is great and many people look wonderful in it. There was only one size left, a Medium, but that is my normal size,so I went for it.. especially because of the price. It ran too small. If I had a little more room, I could have situated the chest and slit to feel more comfortable, but because it was so tight on me, there was no give in the fabric to reposition. This is definitely a great, I would recommend getting a size larger.
