So Comfortable!

This dress is really unique! The color of the dress is actually a little darker than the picture on the model. This dress is extremely comfortable because there is a ton of stretch. I also loved the details on the fabric, it gave the dress a retro feel. I would recommend sizing up in backup;however the dress did run very true to size. It hit right below my knee.

I didn't end up wearing this dress because it did not fit well.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small

I'm usually either a 2 or 4 but I should have ordered a 6. The material is thick but not as forgiving as I anticipated and it just didn't look right across the chest. It also felt too tight in the seat.

Blurring the line between too conservative and too sexy

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
This dress is beautiful! Its super tight and super stretchy so it definitely shows off all of your curves. Of course this could be a good or a bad thing depending on your body type. If you have a less curvy body type I would say this dress could be great for work or formal business attire. If you're more curvy (like me - see pic) then I would say you could still get away with wearing it to a business-type affair but maybe with a blazer over it. Or if you wanna be super sexy then forget the blazer. Also if you have the "I really need to get to the gym" body-type I would stay away from this dress. It runs small and shows EVERYTHING so it will show every roll and imperfection. The length of this dress makes it appropriate to wear to a more for formal occasion as well but because its so tight it really blurs the line between too conservative and too sexy.

Beautiful dress that I wore for a bridal fashion show. It does run small and the arms are very tight so I would go a size up if I were to rent again. Beautiful color as well. Not really a steel blue but more of a mint blue.

Fabric is thinner and stretchier than you would expect!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I have been in love with this dress and was so excited to rent it for a baby shower. When I got the dresses (10 and 12) I tried on the 10 and it was unwearably form fitting. It literally hugged e-v-e-r-l-y s-i-n-g-l-e b-u-l-g-e. I wore the 12 but it still hugged a lot more than I wanted it to. I would have need a 14 or a 16 for it to look like it does on the model--for this reason I would NOT suggest this dress to hourglass or pear figures. The quilting on the dress suggests a more demure styling than the fit. The dress says "I'm a lady" and the fit says "lady if the night". Overall the dress was too small--except the length which was tea-length, which is odd in a shift style dress. I had such high hopes for this dress and was ultimately disappointed and a little embarrassed wearing it. (This is a cautionary tale about trying dresses on the minute they arrive--if I had I would have returned it and either rented or bought something last minute instead of wearing it.)

Elegant, sophisticated and sexy at the same time

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I needed a dress for a very conservative event and I was looking for something modest and sophisticated, but sexy at the same time and this dress was perfect! It's very stretchy, so make sure you aren't planing a huge meal, but it hugs body really well. I wore size 6 just because I didn't want it to be too tight, but if it was for less conservative event, I would have gone with size 4 (I'm normally size 4)

This was the backup dress for my daughter's wedding. It is unforgiving, even with spanx. It's shorter than it looks on the model. I ordered 2 sizes but there wasn't much difference in the fit.

Bride wanted a brides maid dress that was light blue in a winter wedding and this little dress saved my life. It was comfortable, stretchy, modern yet sophisticated. I had a lot of compliments. Wore it with nude heels and simple make up because the dress was eye popping itself. However, it made my butt look big because it really does fit your body. It showed me curves I didn't even know I had. Also, it's darker than the photo, not by much though. Photo shows sky blue but the dress is baby blue. It is extremely worth it.

I ended up returning this dress without getting to wear it. It is super cute but it runs small and was way too tight! I am not a curvy girl but this dress made me look like I actually had hips..but not in the most flattering of ways. Even with the best foundation hose/spanx/slip on I don't think this dress would have been the most flattering. I was hoping to wear this with a blazer for a job interview, but alas on to something else! I also only gave this dress three out of five stars because the material was a little strange very stiff (almost as if it was starched) but it was a great color and style just not the right fit and feel.

When the dress arrived I was a little concerned because the fabric ( a rayon/polyester blend ) fit a little cheap. When I put the dress on though it looked great and I got many compliments on it. All in all I'm very happy with the rental!

this dress is modestly sexy.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
i wore this to a daytime event and accessorized with a skinny belt around my waist. first off this dress is great. the color is great. the length is great. the fabric is great. it's overall, great! the sleeves fit a bit tight, definitely not as they appear on the model but the fabric has so much stretch it wasn't a real issue. the fabric itself is so interesting and beautiful and the stretch factor allowed for several trips back to the buffet. i don't know how this would fit on a girl who is more petite but on myself it hit just above the knee and the shoulders were a bit narrow, i need to adjust the sleeve/shoulder area several times during the day. it was nice to be able to wear regular undergarments but if you're feeling lumpy this dress is not super forgiving; opt for spanx if you'd feel more comfortable. i'd definitely rent this dress again, it looks great with black or nude accessories and it definitely gained a lot of compliments.

Definitely size up in this dress! I typically wear a 4 or 6, but I am glad I got the 8 in this one. Any smaller and I feel like the pattern and texture would not have shown up as nicely even though the 6 may have worked.

Feeling fabulous in this amazing dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress by Vera Wang is AMAZING! It is very body hugging, so for most comfort I recommend wearing a size up. I typically wear a size 4 and I ended up wearing a 6 in this dress. It is form fitting but the material is stretchy so you are able to move around easily. The only con I found was that it does slightly ride up if you are dancing or moving around quickly, but overall I was so pleased with this dress. I wore this to a wedding and received countless compliments, everyone from friends, guests I didn't even know, to the photographer and wait staff, so many people commented on how beautiful the dress is. You cannot go wrong with a quality Vera Wang dress!

True to size, but if you are have broader shoulders and athletic arms aka not skeleton arms, the dress will be a bit snug on your arms and across your chest. But everywhere else fit perfectly and like the comments below, it is a darker shade which looks really nice.

Not as spectacular as I hoped

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I fell in love with the color of this dress. I have several items in my closet that are this color and every time I wear them, I get compliments (I have blue eyes and it really brings out the color of my eye). However, I was really disappointed to receive this dress. The material feels extremely cheap, it is super light weight and felt like polyester. From the photos it looked like it had cute 3-dimensional pattern, which it did, until you put it on. EVERYWHERE where it was snug on the body, the 3D pattern flattened out and looked stupid. I didn't wear the dress, went with my alternative dress which was pretty but a traditional black dress, which I wanted to avoid. I would not recommend this dress to anyone over size 8.

Slim fitting without being too tight. Conservative but young looking! Very dance-friendly!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Worn as a bridesmaid for my sister's colorado-in-march wedding. Not a very "stretchy" dress, but thank goodness I ordered the 2 because the 4 was WAY too big in the hips (I have small hips). Fit me well without being tight anywhere but I could have worn a 0 if I had wanted to look a little sexier (day-time family wedding i.e. NO). Length in dress and sleeves was perfect- just above the knee and elbow. Very comfortable! Not lined, so choose under garments carefully and bring a jacket! My only complaint was it stuck out a bit where the zipper ended on my butt (see photo 2)- had it been tighter this would not have been an issue probably. Darker than the photo online for sure. I received SO MANY compliments on this dress/necklace combo. highly recommend!
