The dress was gorgeous and very age appropriate! I have NO hips, the lines of the dress gave an illusion of more curves than I have!

Super flattering!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Vacation
I wore this dress for a cocktail night on a cruise. The black side panels were really flattering and slimming, and the dress looked really good with silver and opal jewelry It packed easily and came out of the suitcase wrinkle-free. I wore a standard bra. The only negative, not really visible in the picture, is that the darts at the bust came to a very exaggerated point. I was concerned that it looked like large nips. If not for this, the dress would have gotten 5 stars.

STYLIST REVIEW

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

The length on this dress is appropriate for any height. It fell just below my knees but would be office appropriate even on someone much taller. The fit was true to size although I would size up for a back up if you find you are a little bit curvier through the hips. If I was doing a lot of sitting in this dress, the larger size may be what I would spring for since for me, that's a problem area. The colors are perfectly vibrant without being too much. This would be great for work, a business affair or cocktail hour.

Great fit and a flattering pattern

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress worked out really well. The fabric isn't flimsy but also isn't overly weighty. It has just a bit of stretch to it, but not so much you can squeeze into a smaller size than usual. The bust area isn't very forgiving...I'm a 38 B/C and it fit just right, but I think it might have looked silly on an A cup and might have been impossible for anything bigger than a C.

This dress made me feel incredible!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress is very special! Both the front and back stitching and detailing make for a VERY slimming dress that had everyone telling me how great I looked, and asking how I lost the weight! The fabric is lovely with a great pattern and drape. The secret I discovered is that it is reversible, looking special in an entirely different way when worn with the zipper in the front rather than the back. Seriously - an amazing dress that could be worn anywhere!

Work of Art

Overall fit: True to Size

The paneling truly is a work of art. Reminds me of a Monet piece, waterlillies in particular. Wore to work and got many many compliments. The panel is placed in such a way that it accentuates the waist beautifully and brings the eye in to the smallest part of your waist.

I received so many compliments. It fit like a glove tastefully.

I wore a low back strapless bustier under the dress. I kept the jewelry simple wearing only earrings. You have to take short steps as the dress is narrow and comes down below the knee.

Classy

I wore this to a conference, at which I was giving an oral presentation. The bust is definitely better on someone with a larger chest, but wearing a blazer it was fine on me. Everyone liked the colour blocking which was more interesting than most people's usual conference attire.

Night out in Vegas

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Vacation
I wore this dress for a show during a recent trip to Vegas. It looked awesome and I felt great! It was very flattering. I usually wear a 10 lately so I got the 10 and 12 to be safe. The 10 worked great, so I would say the dress is true to size. I could wear a regular bra with it. I do have an hourglass figure so I was worried about my hips in this dress, and the dress does not have much stretch to it so it was tighter on me in the hips than the rest but it did not bother me. Would definitely rent again, wish I could buy it!

Absolutely beautiful fabric

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered the 4 and 6 and wore the 4. I initially ordered this dress for a daytime party but it is a much nicer fabric in person so I wore it to the rehearsal dinner. I can't believe we didn't get a picture. I would def order it again. Figure hugging and slenderizing design. Age appropriate

Heavy Sheath

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was very heavy and thick. I should have listened to the other reviewers. The bust has weirdly placed darts that do not hit in the right spot. Do not rent if you are bigger than a C cup. Back of the dress was nice.
