It's a hot dress - but I'm not sure I'd rent it again.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
The dress is somewhat padded, so it gives you an extra layer. If you are the size of the model in the picture it could work, but as a normal size girl with a bigger chest it felt tough to pull off. The dress is also short. It was fun to wear, it's definitely different & stands out. But like I said above, if I had a 2nd option I probably wouldn't have worn this dress.

This dress did not fit.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I have very a rather larger bottom area. Despite my rather large bottom I tend to very comfortably fit in size 6. Unfortunately, this dress did not fit my curves. I could not wear the dress at all which was really disappointing since I have been eyeing this dress for quite some time. If you order this dress and are on the curvier side, make sure to get a size up.

Beautiful dress but didn't fit at all at the bottom. Would not recommend for girls that a have a little more at the bottom

Lovely dress!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress is very pretty but also very different than what I was expecting. It was short in the back, long in the arms, and the bust/torso area did not fit right. It was bunchy in some areas and tight in others. The material is different and thick sleeves. The dress design is very pretty but I was dissatisfied with the dress.

fit is very unforgivable. i wear a 2/4 and def needed a 6. swapped for an alternate dress

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
the dress is made for a girl with far less curves and since i wear a 2 or a 4 i was surprised bye how unforgiving it was, i don't even think a 6 would look or feel good. so i scrapped this and went for a whole new look but a very gorgeous dress. just for a very specific body type.

Perfect dress for a dinner party!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress to my going away party. I live in DC and since the weather was cold, I paired it with some black tights and the necklace pictured, and it was the perfect outfit for the occasion! I did feel the dress ran a bit small in the hip area, and with the long sleeves, it doesn't give a lot of wiggle room. Normally, I would wear the size 4 in these rentals, but for this one, I was lucky to have sized up to the 6 as my back-up. Even in the 6, it felt a bit snug, but with tights, was just right. Also note: the fabric on this dress is VERY thick....almost thermal/sweater-like. Be mindful of this when you rent it!

NYFW Fall 2014!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
This is a great dress and yields a great silhouette, but there isn’t much give in the fabric. It fits smaller in the arms and hips (for all my hourglass shapes), so I would suggest great shapewear, or going up a size for backup.
