Gorgeous, but small in the chest

Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Did you ever see the old Romeo and Juliet movies? Remember the balcony scene where Juliet's chest actually seemed to be breaking free from her corset? Yeah, if you have a large chest, you should expect that to happen. For a C cup or smaller, this would be a knockout, but for me it just was not meant to be!

Wore this to a black-tie Gala. SO many compliments. I felt elegant and beautiful all night!

I was worried about the length, but it turned out to be JUST OK with a pair of three-inch heels. It fit me to the T on the upper body -- without an inch to spare. A 2 would have been unwearable.

Beautiful dress

Size worn: 0L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this to a black tie wedding and it was a hit. I got a lot of compliments on it and loved the way it felt. It was a last minute rush to find a dress so I had the long length and had to tape it up which turned into a mess for me but that's just my situation. The chest was definitely tight on me so if you're larger than a C cup, it might not work.

The fit was perfect. This dress really accentuates your bust and is very flattering to your figure.

So nice not to worry about what to wear!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I usually wear a size 0 but this one was too small so I ended up wearing the size 2. Good thing it was provided because I literally couldnt zip up the 0 at all. The 2 fit perfect! The length was great too. There's a little bit of a train in the back so I did find that people occasionally stepped on it during the night but it wasn't a complete distraction. The dress is simple and very flattering. Also comfortable. All in all, it worked out perfectly.

Fit great in bodice, long on me but a beautiful dress!

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was perfect for a black tie gala I had for work. As a 5 foot, 100lb woman I knew it was going to be extremely difficult to find a dress that didn't need a little tailoring. I used fashion tape to hem the front of the dress (hard to do with chiffon fabric) which gave me a small train in the back. With 5inch heels it worked out well! It's a classy dress and the fitted top accentuated my bust.
