The perfect little black dress with a twist! The 0 and 2 both fit well, so I definitely recommend the 2 to those who are petite with full busts. But don't be fooled...there are no pockets, just drapes.

Overall fit: Small
I rented this dress for a wedding and it was a lot shorter then I thought It was going to be. There was no way I was going to be able to wear this for a wedding, maybe a party or birthday event. Also I have larger boobs, (36 D) it zippered up but I felt like if I had danced all night it in my girls would have fallen out. I ordered this in a size 10- maybe if this had been a 12 I would have loved it. So if you have a small or medium size chest or are okay with a short dress then this is it for you. The plus side it had a fun pocket in the middle.

Not for small chests.

I liked the overall fit of this dress and the pockets were an added bonus! I can't imagine why dresses don't come standard with pockets. I am small busted and I knew that renting something with the sweetheart neckline would be a risk and I was right. Like usual, I had to push up and pad whatever I had to fill out the top; it made me self conscious all night but on the other hand, this dress feels so comfortable and casual (even though it's not!) that I didn't feel restricted at all.

Best for Bigger Busts

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This is a formal and sassy dress. The velvet gives it a great shimmer for dancing or for nighttime formal affairs and definitely makes it stand out as a unique LBD! The pockets are cute and do not make the dress unflattering. The dress has very little boning and no support for your bust, so it is best worn by larger chested girls who can hold it up! It was too big for me in the chest to wear. The dress hit at my mid-thigh at a sassy and sexy height, a little less appropriate if wearing heels for your parents' cocktail party or company holiday party. The dress is really light-weight.

I rented this dress for a winter rehearsal dinner and loved it! Great neckline and not too short. As another reviewer mentioned, this dress does not have pockets, but I still loved the silhouette.

I loved this cutesy black dress! It was really comfortable, fit well, and great length. I love sweet heart tops but hate having to tug on them so they stay up- I didn't ever have to do that in this dress!

I wore this dress for a fundraising dinner put on by my work. This dress was super flattering and comfortable all night and it wasn't as short on me as it is on the model. The velvet has a cool texture/pattern to it that makes it interesting to look at up close.

just ok

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The dress ran large and it kept shifting sideways so since it had a sweetheart neckline, it was pretty obvious. The double sided tape helped for a while, but stopped working after a few minutes of dancing

I liked this but didn't love it. It was a bit snug in the chest area, but other than that very comfortable

Very cute dress! Definitely on the short side though, a little tough sitting down. The size 2 was more comfortable but the top was too big and kept sliding down. But overall nice fit, very classy, perfect for a holiday party.

Cute, but not a stand-out

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size

This was a cute dress, but not very figure-conscious. We were asked to wear black to a friend's bachelorette party, so I rented this and another dress. I ended up going with my back-up dress!

This is kind of a weird dress.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
The picture here makes it looks like it has pockets, but really, it's just a draped piece of the dress. Underneath is a thin cheap material. I'm curvy, so the drape did some weird clinging. On a person of any size, I think the top would pucker. In reality, the dress looked overall much cheaper than it does in this picture. Wouldn't rent it again or recommend.

This was my back up dress!

I ordered this as my backup dress in case my first choice dress didn't fit or look good. The dress was pretty, but the top looked a little saggy without much support from the dress. But other than that I really liked this dress!

This dress unfortunately was way to small. The boobs were too tight and the dress was too short.

Runs true to size. The bust is amazing... creates great cleavage. The pockets are fun. I paired it with patent leather Tory Burch kitten heel sandals and a black cropped blazer... cute and simple dress. Forgiving in the mid section, tight on top. Great dress!

An easy but cute LBD

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress is pretty basic, but the velvet gives it a little flair. I think the dress was TTS, but I was kind of in between because my shoulders are a bit on the broader side- luckily my chest is small so it worked. I would have worn the 2 for comfort, as it was a work holiday party and I didn't want to fuss, but the 2 was actually a bit damaged on the inside; the plastic boning side was sticking out and poking me in the side. So I went with the 0 which was fine, just snug and a bit short- and I had to make sure to be careful it wasn't riding up, especially after a couple of drinks. I also used fashion tape to keep it up. Not the most outstanding dress I have rented, but basic but cute was what I wanted, especially for a work party. Still got a lot of compliments; I spiced it up with the accessories and shoes ;)

Perfect Winter LBD

I wore this for NYE in San Francisco. It was super comfortable, fit well, and even had pockets (!). It's not very form fitting, but stayed up just fine and was great for dancing all night!

Easy, Comfortable Fit!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress is really comfortable, fit like a glove and I didn't have to suck in all night which is a plus! The fabric added an interesting touch but in photos it just looked like a strapless black dress. The dress does shift and I had to adjust it a few times. The party I wore this for didn't have dancing so it wasn't that much of a problem, but I wouldn't recommend if your night's going to involve a dance floor. Overall- I would say that this dress will fit most body types, so I recommend if you want an easy LBD to accessorize!
