Fitted and flattering

This dress has a lot of structure. It was almost like it had a built in corset and bra. You wouldn't need any other structured undergarments to wear it. It was even more flattering than I thought it was going to be. Got lots of compliments all night. The pics don't show the slit which goes to mid thigh. Fun, but you should know what you're getting into. ;)

Colour is more of a burnt red

Tight on chest and wasn’t able to pull it down to get it to sit right. No give in material

I love me the color and the way it kept my chest in place, I didn’t even need a bra.

I wore it to the AF ball and this was my alternate dress. I got it in petite and the length was perfect. I actually liked both dresses but my first choice was navy and it actually looked dingy. I liked both dresses and couldn’t decide and it was down to the last minute before I decided and because I didn’t know I sent the navy one to the cleaners to have it cleaned and steamed. In the end it was money wasted, because I went with the alternate. I love the option of renting dresses however, I fell they should could prepared, so you don’t have to take the extra step in going to the cleaners just to end up not wearing what was sent to the cleaners. I removed a star for lack of preparation.

Very slimming and lovely dark red color.

The dress fit great other than in the chest area. I used fabric tape to hold it in place, but still fidgeted with it for a lot of the evening. I am 5'1 so I think the dress, even though petite, was still too long for my height. Otherwise, I would rent again!

The event has not taken place yet

The dress runs small in the trunk and the built in bra is wonky.

Beautiful but very small in the ribcage band

I ordered this dress in two sizes anticipating that the band would be tight around my ribcage. It was but the dress in the larger size was so much bigger in the bust and straps that it was unwearable. I was surprised at the difference in the length of the straps. Would be suited for a taller girl.

Beautiful color and drape

Gorgeous dress - perfect for a formal gala for work. One reason for not giving it 5 stars - I am ample chested, but short overall and short waisted. Although the 12 petite length was perfect with a 3 inch heel, there was a lot of extra fabric in the front, even with my ample cups! I ended up doing a pin job in the back - pinching in the horizontal seam at both the shoulder blades. That made for a better fit in the front. The 10P was a bit tight in the ribs, but there was still extra fabric in the front, so opted to go with the pinned 12P. The dress has a beautiful structure in the bodice, and the skirt drapes beautifully.

Disappointed

I really wanted to love this dress but the design is just poor. The torso is incredibly tight, but the straps are very loose. The low cut of the back deters a normal bra being worn, and the loose straps makes it very risky to move around. Leaning forward I risked exposing myself so I had to pin the dress to just be remotely comfortable. The basic design was nice but it was not implemented correctly. I'd imagine the fit would be even more off for someone flat chested.

I couldn't actually wear this one.

I ordered, but ended up not wearing this dress. It is a beautiful jewel toned garnet color, and the material is lovely. It's lined and drapes beautifully. I'm between an 8 and a 10, depending upon the cut of the clothing, but even at a size 10 I could not get this to zip. The bodice is very small. I am a 38 D and couldn't get the zipper up past my waist. If you're busty or have a broad back, I suggest ordering at least a size up.

Beautiful color and fabric

Didn't end up wearing this dress although it was a beautiful dress and perfect for the holidays or any special occasion. The top was a bit too large for my frame

Lots of compliments!

Beautiful Christmas color. A little deep cut for wedding. Could have used some double sided tape! Hard to zip.

I wanted to love it

I couldn't get the zipper anywhere close to fastened around my rib cage. I've worn 10s before without issue but for whatever reason this 10 didn't fit my upper half.

Beautiful dress. Rated 3 stars only because I didnt wear it. Too short.

I ordered petite for my short waist but the dress was way too short by a couple inches in order to wear heels. I'm 5'5". I had to buy another dress last minute at a local store.

Fundraising night.

Pros: Beautiful, deep red color, flattering neckline. I am 5'4" and the length of the 10P was perfect with 2" heels. Cons: As other reviewers have mentioned, the dress is super tight around the ribcage and was difficult to zip up. I think it would also work better for someone with a long torso or a bigger bust, because from the midriff to the straps was a bit too long for me (and I didn't have enough on top to really fill it out). The neckline is also cut quite deep, so thank goodness for wardrobe tape.

Fun time with friends!

Pretty dress but didn't fit me well up top. Ended up not wearing because top was large on my shoulders and too deep cut in front for my liking.

I rented this dress as a back up for the event I was renting for.

The fit in the top was definitely big on me. The straps were a little loose and if I didn't have perfect posture, I ran the slight risk of flashing others around me. If I had chosen a size down (4P instead of 6P) instead, I may not have had this issue. Other than that, the rest of the dress looked gorgeous, and I really liked the look.

The event is tonight. I am returning it before the event.

It's a beautiful color and drapes beautifully. Its invisible zipper was hard to pull up so I couldn't tell how it fit once fully zipped. The gown was not cleaned before it was shipped. It had an odor.

I tried this dress on and it was the one for me! Everyone loved it and I received compliments all night! I would definitely recommend this to anyone. The only thing was that it was a little large up top but overall it was a beautiful dress and a great fit!
