STYLIST REVIEW

I loved the fabric of this dress, it was extremely stretchy and fitted. The dress hugged my curves in all the right places so I would definitely recommend it for all body types. Due to the stretchy fabric, I would advise others to wear this dress with spanx or proper undergarments. The overall fit is true to size however, curvier women should go up a size for back up, especially if you are full busted due to the dress being off the shoulder. All in all, this dress is great for any event!

Gorgeous and comfortable dress

Loved this dress for a cocktail party! I'm usually a size 6 in dresses and I ended up wearing the small for a tighter, more form fitting look. The medium fit too but was a bit looser. I have an athletic build and this dress hugged all the right places. I did have to keep pulling the top of the dress down for the "off the shoulder" look but I loved this dress!

Very sexy and Comfortable

It is very stretchy. Thick material hides most flaws. I'm a regular size 8 and I wore a medium comfortably. If you want the shoulder part to not move out of place you would have to be very still. It had to be readjusted all night. You can wear it without folding the top, which looks nice too but not as sexy. The length was perfect. I'm a leggy 5'6. The length kept it classy without being too grandma. I was bloated so I looked a little pregnant but I still felt very sexy and it fit well. Compliments all night. I'm normally a tank top, jeans, and flip flop girl so this was a change and I didn't feel weird wearing it. This was my alternate dress. So glad I got this one.

This was in the maternity section so I was skeptical but I loved it as soon as I got it on.

Fits very tight but is stretchy! Does fit a pregnant body super well and has low key rushing to hide imperfections!

Love the color just a little unforgiving

Rented this for my 5 year anniversary dinner with my husband... wore it with leather jacket black thigh highs and booties... I stress thigh highs because I couldn't wear tights because the dress is so snug and thin you could see the seam of the pantyhose down the front... the dress shows everything but if you're confident with your figure or have a great pair of spanx you're set - the color is to die for and makes you feel like a woman... and length is classy (knee length on my 5'9" frame). FYI I forgot to take pics when we were out so this is from the next day lol

You will need a strapless body shaper, other than that, itbis comfortable and classy.

Perfect Dress for New Years Eve

Got a million compliments in this dress! Spanx are defintiely required. The only thing that I didnt love is the band going across your chest. You cant lift your arms at all or off-the-shoulder piece pops right up into your face. Otherwise loved it!!

Wore this for an office holiday party that was vaguely titled "Dress to Impress"

This was a nice, cheap option for a casual yet still nice dress for my office holiday party. I didn't feel overdressed and it paired well with a leather jacket. It's comfortable and runs true to size. I worse a waist trainer under it and you could see the hooks underneath though. It lost a star because the shoulders WILL NOT stay down as much as you try. I almost deducted another star because going to the flagship store in NYC was not the best experience, but that's not the dress' fault.

Fair dress. Did not wear.

(Laighing). I did not wear this dress as the XL was too big ( smiles ). Having gained a pile of kilos and then lost a few I'm struggling to find the right fit. Great colour and on the right body (large or small) this dress will be hot.

Loved this dress!

This is a great dress for a holiday party. Not too revealing, not too tight, and plenty of length, while still having some sex appeal. The S fit me a tad loosely, but that was perfect for my husband's holiday party at work. Definitely work renting!

Sexy dress.

Great dress, just keep in mind that you will have panty and possibly pantyhose lines. Spanx are definitely recommended. I kept the top fold of the dress unfolded as a preference but could see why other reviews said it kept flipping up.

Loved this. Although the sleeves were difficult to keep down I love this dress. To be honest I didnt try on the small because I thought the medium felt fine. I wish i did because not looking back it seemed a tony bit big.

Didn't work for me.

I'm an hourglass body type. From waist down it was quite on the larger side. On the top - shoulders didn't stay down. Also, the built in shelf bra made it pull down. Looked weird, ended up not wearing it.

Dressy, stretchy, and super comfy

This is my first rental since I've gotten pregnant. I'm in my second trimester and normally wear a 14. The XL in this dress was flattering and super comfortable, with room to spare. I received a ton of compliments. Make sure to pick undergarments that won't show lines through the stretch. The shoulders were more of a cap sleeve on me than a true off-the-shoulder, but still looked very nice.

Didn't work for me

I ended up wearing a different dress that I rented for this wedding. The Large ran a bit too snug for my usual dress size 10 body. The fabric is stretchy, so not very structured which is the reason it did not work for me. Also the off the shoulder portion was too small- it looked odd. A larger size probably would have worked.

cute and comfortable dress

I didn't end up wearing the dress because it was more casual than what I was looking for. However, I am currently pregnant (in early second trimester) and the stretched nicely around my bump and it was flattering.

Less than Perfect

The material is a super stretchy material that does not require a zipper. If you like the super tight fit, it rocks and the material is super soft. If you are not afraid to show undergarment lines or going comando, this is an awesome dress. If you are, not the dress for you.

Tons of compliments

Off shoulder simple midi bodycon dress. Sooo comfortable! The only thing that was an issue for me was that I had to keep pulling down the top back over my shoulders. It creeps up. I wore this to a wedding, I received tons of compliments. The color is vibrant red and is true to size. Lovedddd it!

Celebratory dinner date with a new dress courtesy of Rent the Runway!

This dress was pretty and comfy. The only cons for me were that 1)I had to keep adjusting the off-the-shoulder neckline and 2) I had to wear shapewear underneath the dress to smooth out my belly ( I typically don't, but the material is clingy, so thick ladies heads up).

Great dress at any size

I wore this dress to my brother's wedding rehearsal and dinner, and although I loved it, I recommend playing with the shoulders. After I got hope I put the fabric up on top of my shoulders rather than off the shoulder, and thought it was way more flattering. Great color!

It was a beautiful, small grooms dinner.

The color was phenomenal and the material was stretchy. I got a fitted slip to wear underneath since the fabric was a bit thin. The straps, although beautiful, drove me crazy the entire night. They wouldn't stay in place and I was constantly pulling them back to where they needed to be.

Perfect for a tall gal with an expanding baby belly

The dress was fun, impactful for a holiday party, and comfortable. The fit was great. Stretchy and easy to wear and i danced a ton. It was tight but hugged the right spots. I'm 20 weeks pregnant and it made me feel great. My husband loved every minute of it. This dress would fit many body types really well.
