Very straight and boxy fit, but very cute.
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I wore this for my bridal shower and it was very cute. But it is cut very straight so the 0 was too tight on my butt, but the 2 was too loose on the arms. However, I ended up wearing a 2 and it was still great. This is a wonderful "girly" dress.

Very comfortable!
Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress as a back up in case the Sass Meets Class dress did not fit. I wanted to wear it instead because it was more comfortable and I wouldn't have needed shapewear. My husband and daughter agreed that the other dress looked better on me because it was fitted so I went with the other dress. I really liked this dress even though I did not wear it to my event. A strapless bra is needed since the straps would've showed. It was quite loose and the armholes were much bigger than my arms. I would go a size lower if I rented this again.

Classic silhouette with a fun lace twist.

This was a super easy choice for a casual rehearsal dinner. The lace overlay is pretty without being fussy, and the length is very flattering. I wore nude heels, about 4", to help, too! If I owned this dress, I'd wear it again for a variety of occasions- it can be dressed up with the right accessories and shoes.

I love this dress. Beautiful and understated. The one thing I didn't notice in the photos is that you must wear a strapless bra with this since the shoulders are sheer...no big deal, I just didn't realize it ahead of time. I wore this to a summer wedding and received compliments all night.

Beautiful dress, but too short!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I so wish I could have worn this dress! It is even more gorgeous than in the picture. And it looked amazing on. But it was so short that there was no way I could have danced in it...or walked...or moved at all. Basically, I lifted up my arms, and my entire butt fell out the bottom. I swear I'm not exaggerating. Luckily I had rented this as my back-up, so it was only $25 wasted, but I would have loved to have worn it. I don't think going up a size would have helped, since then it would have been too baggy all over and probably not much, or any, longer.

GREAT dress!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Rented this for a beach weekend in June with temperatures in low 80s. Was absolutely perfect. Received a few "wow"s from my husband and felt very comfortable. I'm 12 weeks pregnant, so I'm more like 140 pounds now and the 8 fit very well. The dress is short and I would probably pick another dress if it was a "dance all night" type of affair, but this worked really well for me.

This was a great dress overall and I felt great in it at my grad school spring formal!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The sleeves were a bit too tight (and a bit itchy b/c of the lace material) and the dress definitely rides up A LOT when you lift your arms, so you may not want to wear this if you're planning to go crazy on the dance floor! Also, the built-in slip shows a lot and feels longer than the lace material when you're on the move, so that was a bit annoying. However, the dress looked and felt great overall.

Overall fit: True to Size

I ordered this for a wedding. I had just had a baby so wasn't sure what size I would need. The dress fit fine in the body but even in the size 10 was too tight on my 36F bust. I ended up going with my backup dress instead. I would say it fits true to size overall but is not for overly busty girls.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was a huge hit at a family wedding-it was a bit short compared to my norm but everyone assured me that it wasn't indecent! The arms and thighs were a bit tight while the middle section was loose but I had expected that was how it would fit my body type. I would definitely rent again, I had a great experience and it felt like I was "dressing up" for the party.

I felt the fit was great. I am more of an athletic-apple shape and I thought it slimmed me down, but kept my curves. I loved the three-quarter sleeves and I loved the blue hue.

Beautiful Dress
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This was a gorgeous dress and the detailing was beautiful. I ended up not wearing it for 2 reasons. 1 - where the zipper ends the dress bunches up. I probably could have made it work with a belt or a smaller size but then it would have been too tight in the arms. 2 - it was a warm Spring day and with the lining and lace, it's heavier then you think and I was sweating the minute I put it on. Overall, it's a beautiful dress.

LOVED this dress!

I rented this dress in both the 6 and the 8 based on some of the prior reviews. I'm so glad I had the 8. I could have worn the 6 but the arms were SO SNUG (and I don't have big or long arms). I wore the 8 and was much more comfortable. I can wear a small or 4 in some dresses, but am typically a standard 6. I do have somewhat broad shoulders so maybe that contributed to the arm issue with the 6. I'd suggest going a size up.

This was my backup dress and it just hung on my petite frame like a straight sack. Probably will look better on someone with a bigger bust or more curves to begin with. I ended up going with an old dress from my closet since neither dresses worked out for me this time.

This definitely ran on the smaller side, and was pretty short! I am bigger on the bottom so it was a little snug and I felt like I kept having to pull it down, so it wouldn't bunch up. Overall I really liked this dress, but would recommend it for someone less curvy!

I ordered the 2 and 4. I was really pleased that both dresses fit. The 2 was a little tighter and shorter. Since I was going to a formal, conservative event, I ended up going with the 4 which was a little longer and fit more like a shift dress. The length wasn't an issue for me - especially in the 4, and even sitting down.

Beautiful dress, perfect for a wedding.
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
While the dress is made out of high quality, beautiful material, I did find that it runs small. I normally fit into a 0 or 00, and have a hard time finding dresses that fit. I am tall, but very thin and I have a long torso. This dress has no give to it. The size 0 looked good from the front, but in the back I experienced a lot of bunching, as if my torso was too long and my butt should be higher to fill out the dress. It was also VERY short (if I lifted my arms up it became a shirt). I ended up wearing the 2, which was much more comfortable in the arms. It was still a bit baggy in the back, but fit much better than the size 0. I was surprised, I've never been able to wear a size 2 in my life. Because of the odd fit in the back, I wouldn't pay full price for the dress...however, overall I was very happy with the dress and would consider renting it again sometime!

I wore this dress for a rehearsal dinner. I usually wear a size 2, but I ended up wearing the size 0 in this dress. The size 2 was a little big in the back. I think if I was a few inches taller, I could have pulled off the 2. Anyway, I got tons of complements on this dress. It was perfect!!!

Fun look, tons of compliments!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this dress and judging from all the compliments I received, I wasn’t the only one. I found it to be eye-catching without being over the top, and perfect for a not-too-formal winter wedding. It was also very comfortable – the lace isn’t itchy at all – but it is short so you have to either be comfortable in short dresses or at least conscious of the way you sit, dance, etc. The (attached) slip did tend to peek out at the bottom, but not in a bad way; it looks like part of the style. I wore it with nude pumps and gold jewelry and thought it all worked great together.

I ordered this dress last-minute for Valentine's Day, taking advantage of Olay's free overnight shipping offer. I'm so glad I did! The dress was cute, classy, and comfortable to be in - even after a multi-course dinner and multiple desserts! Since it's winter, I wore black tights and booties with it. It was perfect.

Unique Dress...Great For The Winter
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I loved the long sleeves, especially for the winter, and thought it would help keep me warm on a cold night, and I was super comfortable wearing it all night long. The only thing about this dress is that it is a true shift...so there's no shape to it at all. Since I'm very hourglass, it did stick to my chest and bum a little and just kind of hung around my stomach area. The 6 wasn't available so I couldn't see how that one fit, but I have a feeling that it would've been a little big on me, but probably would've fit like a real shift is supposed to. All in all, really loved it and got lots of compliments!

I am pear shaped, size 4 on top, 6 on bottom, so I had to go with the 6 on this for the hips, so the top was a little loose but no one but me could tell. It is a bit shorter than the dresses I usually go for, but it was very comfortable and I recieved many compliments.
