This dress was nothing less than FABULOUS !
I wore this dress to my college Winter Formal Dance. I loved everything about this dress as did everyone else at the dance! I was so in love with this dress, I ordered in Navy also and wore it to a wedding. It is very true to size ! If you're ordering this dress, get ready for people to talk your ear off with compliments !

I wore this dress to NYE last year and got so many compliments!
I rented a 10 and a 12 because I'm often between the sizes, but the 10 fit perfectly. I needed fashion tape to hold up the back and the side, and it goes too low in the back to wear a bra with it so it may not be good for very busty women. I'm a C and didn't have a problem. I'm 5'1 and the dress went down to just above my knees, which is exactly where I wanted it to be. All in all, a great dress! I'd definitely rent it again.

I actually didn't wear this dress.
The color is beautiful but the material is a bit thin and it was hard to wear a bra with it. I'd recommend it for smaller busted women.

The Dress was great! I especially loved the detail in the back!
I was a little bit too short for the back so I had to use safety pins to make the straps smaller instead of using the buttons, but other than that I loved everything about it!

Great length for a petite
This dress runs way small! I usually wear 0 or 00, but I could barely fit in the 2, because of the fitted waistband.

Did not wear this dress, it is not burgundy, it is definitely PURPLE.
I did not end up wearing this dress. Firs tof all it says the dress is burgundy, but the dress is most definitley purple not burgundy. The color in the pic is not the same color as the actual dress. Also the dress is a summer dress for sure, not good for any parties in the winter.

I don't get to dress up for events very often, and I felt beautiful and comfortable all night!
The fit is definitely a bit on the large size, especially the top. The strapless side falls very low on your chest. Other than that, the dress was very comfortable and moved well. Great length and color.

It was the perfect dress for a date party!
It's really flattering, and the back is the best part. You can't wear a real bra with it though so make sure that isn't an issue before you rent it!

It was so comfortable and everyone loved it! I wish I actually owned this to wear all the time!
It did fit a little tight around the ribs, but the size 2 was way too big on the top. I decided to wear the 0 and it ended up being very comfortable even though it was a little tight. I am usually not comfortable wearing a dress with a back as low as it was, but it ended up being fine. It was a perfect dress to wear for my friend's Sweet 16 court. Everyone there told me they loved it.

LOVED the color and style of the dress so much!
The bust was a little big (wore it with no bra). And wasn't 100% fit to my body. Tried to adjust it as best as the dress would allow, but it didn't cause too much concern. I'd still rent this dress again.

So many compliments!!
The dress was lovely. I put it runs small because the waist was pretty tight and unforgiving. It hits just under the bust so the fit is most critical right there. At first I thought the bust was too big because it was really baggy (very unusual problem for me) but after some adjusting it turned out the straps were just too long. The straps are adjustable, but were still too long. Some minor on-the-fly alteration got it fitting perfectly. It was longer than it appears in the model photo, but still 2-3" above the knee. Overall a very fun, very flattering dress.

The dress was a little tight around the ribs and loose in the boob area. Double sided tape easily fixed that!

Great customer service reps if you ever have any questions, give them a call!
A beautiful dress! The only problem with it was the side without the shoulder came very low-- like cut across the breast, low. Because of this and the low back, it is very difficult to wear any kind of bra or support. If you can figure that problem out, its gorgeous!

I wore this to my sorority's parents cocktail and got so many compliments, it was classy and fun!
I normally wear a size 2, but because of the cut, the 4 was much more comfortable. The color is a rich burgundy and would look great on all skin tones--perfect for the fall!

Great for fall wedding
I wore this dress for a fall wedding. I'm not usually a one-shoulder girl, but I love a great back and this dress definitely has a GREAT back. Probably not great for a larger bust- I went without a bra. It fit great and I loved the length and color.

It fit true to size. Don't bother wearing a bra because the back is too open.

I really loved this dress! The silky material was a little darker than the picture, and I did have to steam it before wearing (because of wrinkles). The only negative was how tight it was around my ribs, and I'm only a 34B! I wore a size four, but a six would have been more comfortable for that reason. Fashion tape was a must for me; side boobs otherwise!

as other reviewers mentioned, this dress needs fashion tape! It gapes a little in a couple of spots (especially the side without the strap). When fixed properly it is very adorable. I wore it to a wedding and it was lovely.

I LOVED this dress!! Everyone was complimenting me at the wedding, and i would wear it again in a heartbeat. Take advantage of getting two sizes, I wore a size 4 even though it was a little tight because the 6 was still tight where you zipped, and you could see right down the sides on the 6.

This dress was very pretty, however I could not wear it. The back is extremely low and I experienced some side boob creep on the side without the strap. I'd planned to wear this to a rehearsal dinner but decided that it showed too much skin to be comfortably worn in front of family. (I am usually between a 4 and a 6 and the 4 definitely did not fit in this style.)

Did not work AT ALL... ended up scrambling to find a dress last minute, did not fit!
This dress was extremely, extremely short - not appropriate for my charity event. The fit was really awkward also, guess its just not a good brand for taller people!

Cute party dress
Fun dress for a party, night out, bachelorette, etc. The color is great, not too bright, but a nice change from a typical black. One thing to consider is that the area just below your bra area (upper rib cage) fits a little tight. The next size up was a better fit in that same area, but a little too large everywhere else. You may want to reconsider this option if you have a bigger boobs or you are planning to eat a big dinner in this dress.

This dress was a fun funky play on a traditional dress
dress fit well, however the strapless side did need to be taped down. Overall it was very comfortable and i felt very pretty in it all night
