Danced until I couldn't dance anymore.
This dress fit great. There wasn't alot of adjustments whielst moving. Very important for a strapless dress. I would definitely recommend it for any party or wedding. And look forward to renting from Rent the Runway again.

Great fit! So many compliments and love the pockets!
I rented this for a company holiday party and it was perfect! I'm normally a size 2 and this fit great, just as expected. I really like that the fabric had a bit of stretch and a light texture to it; it was very flattering and I received many compliments throughout the evening. I am a 32 C and wore a lightly padded strapless bra and it wasn't loose on top but I added a little fashion tape just in case which I would recommend so you don't feel like you have to keep pulling it up. All in all, I couldn't be happier! If there was an option to buy this dress, I would in a heartbeat! And pockets!!! How can you not love a dress with pockets?!

Cute little number, but I had to wear something I already had at home since it didn't fit.
No stretch in bust. Seriously. Think business suit zero stretch. Fabric and details are nice, and this dress really is a cute number. Skirt is modest and pockets are perfect.

The color was great! Dress was perfect for the occasion!
The dress for perfect was true to size. I'm in between 6-8 and both sizes fit me but I chose to go with the size 8 which fit more comfortable and I could wear a bra with it. The size 6 would not zip with a bra on because I am heavy on top. There is know stretch in this dress so it's something to take into consideration especially if your on the bigger bra size. The color was beautiful my only and main con is the fabric of the dress. In the pic the fabric appears to be different. The best way I could describe it is kind of like a jean thick material not what I expected from pictures. On the other hand it does photograph well. I also wish I would have steamed the dress some. I was rushing and never realized if the dress just wrinkled easily or it was wrinkled alread.

Wasn't what I was hoping for
I was hoping from the picture that this dress, although funky and different, was a little more formal. Not the case. It also had no structure on top and for a flat chested girl it wasn't going to work

I was looking for a change from my usual LBD and this was a perfect color and style for my event!!!!
The fit was perfect (I had to wear a strapless bra underneath to fill it out) and I added a small bow belt for a little added detail!

Great for a night out with friends
The dress is a lovely rich color, but the material doesn't stretch very well. It was great for getting a nice breeze in the Texas heat and easy to move around in. I received a few compliments, but nothing stunning. I think it's perfect for a regular night out with friends or a casual date, which is why I gave it 4 stars. I would've given it 3 since it didn't impress me as much, but it served it's casual purpose very well!

Wore this for a company holiday party.
Runs large and fit is a bit off-- sweetheart bust is a bit too narrow and waist was too high for me. Color is gorgeous and material is good.

Comfortable, flattering and fun!!
I wore this dress for a local charity event and felt fabulous in it all night. The fit was very flattering, form-fitting at the bust and natural waist with a perfect flare in the skirt starting at the hips. Great for a larger bust and most importantly, really fun to dance in!

Fun and flirty dress, great for a night out!
The color of this dress is not as red as it looks here....it almost had an orange-y color to it. But other than that, I loved the way it fit and it was great for a wedding where we were dancing all night!!

LOVED this dress. Its comfortable but stylish. Received alot of compliments and attention in it.
Pro - fit was great, perfect length, color was great, comfortable but stylish, loved the pockets, I want to buy this dress!!!!! wore it with the Gerard Yosca Chained to You Bracelet Cons - top is for someone with a bust or lifting strapless bra, and it looks better with a black stretch belt

Wish it'd fit!
This dress was so fun and cute. Unfortunately, I need a size up, but only 2 and 6 were available. I fit in the 2, but not the girls. Luckily this was my backup dress. The dress has such a flattering silhouette that I will definitely try to rent this again.

Bold and different
Wore to a sorority function, the dress was different and bold and I got tons of compliments. Tight enough in the bust area that I wasn't tugging at it all night, but not too tight that it was uncomfortable. Seriously loved this dress.

Great fit and flare
This is a great dress for an hourglass shape. I love the fit and flare fit. I got a 6 and 8 and wore the 6. Even with big boobs this was the one with some space extra. The 8 would have just fallen off after I zipped up. Good fabric and thickness. Pair with black accessories and heels. Red lip was everything with this dress.

"That dress is you"
I don't have any full pictures in the dress but I LOVED it. Honestly, I have considering just buying it. I belted it with a simple black belt and wore tights with a back seam to bring attention to the back zipper. IN LOVE with this dress. Would definitely rent again.

Ordered as a back up dress but didn't need it!
I ordered this as a back up dress because my first choice was only available in a size 10 and so was this one! My first choice worked perfect and this one didn't even zip! That made me think it runs pretty small!

I rented this dress for a summer wedding on the cape and it was perfect. The material is a fancier take on cotton - it has a subtle satiny sheen- so wearing this beachside meant that I still looked polished, but not over dressed. The dress does seem to run a bit small (I can usually fit in to 4s, but wore my backup 6 and it fit perfectly). I got tons of compliments and couldn't help spilling that I rented it! Great dress!

I rented this dress for a casual poolside wedding. I think I received a compliment from every guest. I could not give it 5 stars because the dress fit perfectly except for the bust. I am a 32DD and I was continuously making sure the dress had not turned or come down while I was dancing.

I wore this to a wedding and got so many compliments on it--everyone wanted to know where it was from. I'm very curvy in the hips and not quite so gifted above and this cut was very flattering. I may have had a little room up top but I had no issues with the dress sliding down. I'm normally a 6 and this was a very comfortable fit, not tight at all and the backup 8 (which I am normally very grateful for) was way too big.

I fell in love with this dress months ago, and just had to have it for homecoming. I got a size 2 and 4, and I usually fit into a dress size 2. However, even the two was a bit big, nothing that couldn't be fixed with fashion tape, but I was tugging it up most of the night so I recommend sizing down. Overall, I really loved this dress. It looked amazing and I got a ton of compliments. So yes, rent it, just size down.

Great Dress!
I had just given birth 7 weeks before I had a wedding to attend and I rented this dress. I am nursing, so my breasts were quite large (36DD), I still had a pooch in my lower belly as well. This dress flattered me very well. It hid the pooch without the use of Spanx and my breasts were lifted to look fantastic! The fabric was also of great quality, and I received this dress like new. I got a TON of compliments:)

The dress was super cute but the bust are was too loose for my 32A chest size. I had to wear 2 strapless bras to get it to fit somewhat normally.

I loved the dress! It made my waist look small, yet it was still comfortable and easy to dance in!
The dress fit perfectly. I'm 5'9" and 135 pounds. I wore the size 4 to a fall wedding and couldn't have been happier. It was comfortable, easy to dance in, and fit like a glove. I wish I didn't have to return it:)

This dress is so hot! I may have to rent it again!
Rented the dress for a work Christmas party but seriously under-estimated the sex factor! So I wore a little black bolero with it and it still looked great! And I should explain, I ordered the 6 and the 4 since I am usually a 6 (but I think that may be limited by my hips) Since the skirt is flared and the dress is strapless, I opted for the 4 to keep it up all night. I looked and felt like a million bucks! Can't wait to rent this again and let the sexy show!

The dress fell down when I tried it on!
The 0 was too big for me to wear. I didn't have a strapless bra to wear with it, but I'm not sure that would have made a difference for the fit.

Not as cute in person
This dress looks more casual in person. It has pockets, which was weird. I thought it accentuated a tummy as opposed to hiding it like some others said. It was OK, would have worked fine, but it did not make me say "wow."

Perfect holiday party dress but too large on me.
This dress was perfect for my company Holiday party. I was concerned from some reviews that the fabric would be casual but it really wasn't. It's a nice thicker fabric in red orange that is ribbed, and it has pockets!! Only problem is that a 0 was too large on me on the top half by 1-2 inches. I ended up layering some tanks underneath and wearing a thin black belt to keep it up. Length is fine otherwise. Wish it came in a smaller size! Great shape and color otherwise.

I got this as a back-up dress and didn't end up wearing it, but I plan on renting it again. Great color, length is good, and very comfortable too!
