Lots of compliments, in spite of my indecision!
Size worn: 42
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented two dresses for this event, and in this dress I did not get a back up size. I was drawn to the drammatic neckline and shimmery fabric - in the end, I opted to wear this one because the other was simply not as flattering on my frame as I'd hoped it would be. I am small up top but big on bottom and this dress works for my classic Pear shape. It was challenging to figure out HOW to wear this dress. When it arrives on the hanger, the neckline looks Just So. You'll look at it hanging perfectly under the plastic and think (naively), "how hard could it be?!". After taking it off the hanger though, you're on your own - the perfect folds melt away without support. I referred back to the model's photo to try to get my dress to work the same way but to no avail. You either have to have her exact measurements, or I didn't have the right size, or that photo is totally photoshopped. I really don't know what the magic trick is, but what I do know is that I fussed with that neckline all evening long. It feels like it sits away from your body too far (so you're constantly checking to make sure the ladies are tucked in), and it's really difficult to make the geometry as shown on the model work. After doing a bit of googling (try "Emma Willis Anglomania"), I made me feel a smidge better to know that celebrities who probably have staff helping them get dressed couldn't figure it out either! In any case, no one seemed to realize what a hard time I was having and I got compliments at the event and at the bars afterwards. At one point a total stranger stopped me to profess how much she loved it! But I have to admit that it was a little odd to get compliments on a dress that I felt somewhat uncomfortable in - I prefer a dress that both looks good and feels good, and gives me the confidence to move around and "work it"!

Great dress!
Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress to a law school formal. It's a really pretty color, and I got plenty of compliments. The fabric is much lighter than it looks, which was fine for me, as I was inside the whole time. I agree with the other reviews about the bodice thing--it was sticking out a lot and I couldn't get it to lay flat and ended up taping parts of it. Still, I really enjoyed wearing the dress; overall a good experience!

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to wear the dress, but I loved the shape and the fabric!
Size worn: 38
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
At the advice of others, I ordered a 0 and a 2. (I'm usually somewhere between the two in dresses.) I couldn't get the 0 zipped at all. Definitely order up a size, so you have the option. Unfortunately, this dress is also not for the short-waisted. I have a short torso, so because of the defined waistline, I ended up with a bunch of extra fabric up top that had nowhere to go. Loved the look of the dress and the fabric (slight shimmer but not in a gaudy way), but I wasn't able to wear it. Would be cute and chic on the right person!

Beautiful dress.
Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Very "dressy" dress: material is shiner and thinner than on the picture. There is a tiny black thread running through the fabric. The collar is a little fussy but it looks interesting no matter how you arrange it. You cannot do anything with the pleats on the skirt- they keep the certain "puffy" shape. It all make the dress very interesting. Dress runs small. I am 113lb and 34B and could not zip up size 38. Keep in mind that size 40 fit me perfectly but if I were slightly bigger chested I won't be able zip it either. Dress hits about an inch above the knee. I wore it with black shoes, black clutch, and gold jewelry.

Fit strangely in the chest, arm holes were uncomfortable, dress did not lay right in the chest fold or skirt pleats. Tried to fold and refold with help of my mother in law and friend, but we could never get it to work.. Disappointed,

Gorgeous Dress!
Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The fit is great, very flattering for most shapes and sizes. The color, like most reviews confirm, is beautiful. The neckline of this dress is interesting enough so that you don't need a lot of jewelry or accessories. The only negative aspect to this dress is that the pleating in front would not stay pleated correctly, I was constantly having to fix the folds so that it laid correctly - it could have just been my size, but it was definitely annoying!

Did not fit me the way i would like to.
Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size

Nice dress, but not what i expected. It came damaged so i could not wear. Ordered size 42 and 44 for back up. 42 fits well except chest and shoulders, came out too big on that area. Material is very light and thin, bright color as shown on picture, does not have lining.

Terrible fit.
Size worn: 44
Overall fit: Large

I got this dress as a back up for a wedding. It was huge up top! I don't know if the fabric needed to be starched so that it would fold like it does on the model in the picture, but I couldn't figure it out.

Received a ton of compliments! Very flattering and runs true to size but bodice is a bit on the snug side to keep in mind when ordering. Would definitely recommend.

Gorgeous Shimmering Dress
Size worn: 42
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Overall, I loved this dress! The color/fabric is incredible - a really gorgeous shimmering green gold. It glimmers so beautifully. The neckline was a bit hard to work with initially, and I felt the dress was loose around the chest and on top. I wore the 42, but I think the 40 may have worked, too. The waist on this dress hits a bit low, but since I'm tall with a long torso it was perfect. For someone with a very short torso, this may feel a bit disproportionate. If it wasn't for the loose fitting top, I'd give this 5 stars! GORGEOUS dress!

Beautiful color, unusual dress
Size worn: 44
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I liked this dress very much. I didn't love it, and this is one that I was glad I rented and don't own, because I probably wouldn't wear it again. The color is beautiful, it is perfect for my pear shape, and it is unusual enough that in a gala of more than 500 people no one had on a similar dress. Like many of the reviewers, I got a lot of compliments on the dress. The neckline felt a little fussy for my taste, but I knew that when I ordered it. The fabric is rather thin, and the pleats didn't lay quite right. These are relatively minor quibbles about what was a lovely dress.

This dress is very unique and great for the holidays. It runs a bit big so I ended up wearing another dress but really loved how pretty it was. The collar is big but a cool way to make it different.
