I rented this for my cousin's wedding and loved it. When it went on sale a few months later I bought it. Last weekend I was at another family event and a few people remembered "that purple dress you wore last time." A year later!!

I loved this dress. I wish I owed it. I got tons of compliments. The color photographed beautifully and the cut was generally very slimming, but in a few pics I noticed later that from the wrong angle the ruffle on the side kind of made me look bigger than I am. I am 2, 4 and I wore the 2, but there wasn't much difference in the fit, either would've worked. One thing that bugged me: there is this mesh lining that kept hanging out below the bottom hem. If it were my dress I would've taken some scissors to that part - an easy fix.

Loved this dress! I Got the 2 with a 4 as my back up, and ended up wearing the 4 - it hid my after-thanksgiving-tummy perfectly! Would rent again!

Great for curves. Highlighted my waist nicely. I felt really comfortable in it all night-- conservative enough for the Orthodox Jewish wedding I attended but fun enough to dance all night!

Awkward dress, uncomfortable for a long night

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
None of the ruffles stood up like they did in the picture. Color is as bright and pretty as it is in the picture. Fit a bit snug in odd places and was stiffer than I had hoped.

Loved the color and style of this dress but the fabric wrinkles very easily. So with in minutes of putting it on already looking like I had been wearing it for hours. The lining also slipped out of the bottom and maybe should be fixed b/c doubleside tape only last me an hour.

This is a gorgeous dress! I usually wear a 4 but wore a 6 in this dress. Wore it to a wedding, perfect. The liner slipped out around the bottom but the double sided tape that comes with it did the trick.

The dress was gorgeous, especially the color, but looked a bit out of proportion with my fuller bust (34F). I loved it, but I wouldn't rent it again.

Gorgeous color, great cut. Looked better in the smaller size. I wore a 10 in everything else I rented but the 10 looked baggy in this style. I recommend it for standing, but it was a little hard to sit in.

Beautiful dress! Fits true to size. Easy to wear. Hides the tummy with strategic folds/wrinkles. Received several compliments on it. Highly recommended.
