A lot of compliments - size up!

This is short - especially when you sit down. It has shoulder pads which gives it a beautiful structured look on top. The material is not too thick, and very nice. I wore a camie underneath, and honestly don't know how you would be able to get away without it if you have a b cup or larger without A LOT of tape. I am normally an 8, rented a 10 because of the waist, would have been more comfortable in a 12.

Gorgeous but very booby!

I had rented this for an event for my husband's work, but found that it was a bit too low cut for that sort of occasion with my C cup chest. If I were planning to wear it to a fabulous party it would be gorgeous. The crepe fabric feels expensive and the cut is very tailored with statement shoulders and is a gorgeous deep green color. It's fairly true to size although I've lost a bit lately so I'm probably somewhere in between a 6 and an 8 and the 8 fit like a glove.

Very busty

I am between sizes of 10 and 12 and the 10 worked perfectly for me. However, this dress is extremely busty. No matter what I did, my boobs were barely covered and completely hung out of both sizes. Thankfully, the wedding I wore it to was an outdoor wedding in November, so my coat just didn't come off. Couldn't even take a picture that would be appropriate for review. Lots of compliments on the color and the bottom hem as that's all anyone saw. Only reason I wouldn't rent again is because of the lack of boob coverage.

Gorgeous

Absolutely stunning dress. I accidentally ordered a 6 instead of an 8, which was a no go for the bust and shoulders. Otherwise I would have kept it! FYI for busty ladies, this dress is quite...busty.

Beautiful dress for a winter event...something unique other than a LBD

This dress has really good material that is thick and forgiving. It is very low cut as you can see from the picture. I have wider hips so the lining was tighter but still works. There is a slit that is a little more open on me bc of my hips but I had planned to pair with black tights to help with that. The dark green color is beautiful! Unfortunately the event I was going to was cancelled but I would definitely rent again for the future!

This old mom got to feel like a movie star for the night...

I loved this dress so much! The fabric is such great quality while still being a little forgiving. I definitely think it's best for us smaller breasted gals and it is short, but I felt confident with my tights. A++

You get what you pay for!

And I mean that in a good way! I was feeling a little heavier than usual (it's the holidays - it happens!) and less confident than usual. This dress fit so well and made me feel amazing! It's a perfect blend of sexy and classy. Not too short and the top keeps everything in place well. I didn't need tape to hold the girls in place.

Loved the dress!

I ordered a 6 (typically a 4 in dresses) after reading reviews about it being "booby". Glad I did, for the type of event I was going to. Felt sexy and confident all night and had many compliments.

Fun dress for a party

Flattering deep V and awesome shoulder pads! It absolutely runs small, size up. If you have an hourglass shape you may have some fit issues with the bottom. I put some tights on and made it work! All in all loved the look

Dramatic dress that got a lot of notice

The plunging neckline was fun, modern, and dramatic, especially paired with the shoulder pads and relatively simple cut of the dress. I had to wear a bra with a U-line plunge and needed fashion tape to keep the neckline in place. Also, I ordered a 2 and 4 and definitely needed the bigger size. I would rent again and some people even told me to buy it, but I'm not sure it's appropriate for most of the events that I go to.

Great dress!

This is a great dress, it fit really well and was the perfect level of being sexy without being too much! The 2 came with shoulder pads, but the 0 did not. The shoulder pads were fun, but the dress was a touch too big. I got so many compliments, and would definitely rent this again!!

Sexy chic

This dress was a great find. I'm quite tall, so finding sleeved dresses that are long enough is a big win. Only complaint is that it ran a bit small. I'm between a 6 and 8 typically, and the 8 I wore was snug. But overall, I loved the look and got tons of compliments.

Loved!

I wore this on a night out in Vegas and I loved it! I got a lot of compliments. It felt very short but the outer skirt made me feel covered up. It was a little small on me but still comfortable! I wish I could've kept it!

Love this dress!

This dress is HOT! Reallllly low cut so tape is necessary. Rented a 0 and 2 and the 0 fit best. Wasn't sure if I'd like the shoulder pads but it really makes the dress. And the color is very chic! I didn't end up wearing because of the low cut and my event being a work party...but I can't wait to rent this again for a non work event!

10/10 would rent again!

I absolutely loved this dress. All the reviews cautioned that the dress ran quite small, but for smaller chested ladies like myself that might not be the case? I ordered my usual size 2 and a 4 for backup; the 2 fit perfect. I wore this dress to a charity event, got a ton of compliments and my husband loved it. Most importantly though, I felt gorgeous in it! One word of caution, fashion tape is necessary to prevent any side boob from showing.

Hot hot hot

Absolutely flattering dress. It's a tight dress that isn't so tight you feel like you're a sausage! The wide shoulders create an illusion of a smaller waist. The layering of the material hides your midsection and the length is short but not offensive. One watch out is the deep v; I used fashion tape to ensure I did not have a nip slip! I got so many compliments and felt incredibly sexy!

Beautiful dress, runs really small

I was so disappointed that this dress didn't fit. I'm normally a 6/8 in dresses, and I could barely zip up the 8. It was terribly tight around the waist and much shorter than on the model. I would have worn a 10 with a cami underneath because as others have said, this is very low cut.

Love this dress

If you are busty like me, prepare to show them off but either way this is a classy dress and I loved it. Runs small. I’m a size 6 and the 6 was just a little too snug so I wore the 8. Get your size and one size up.

Runs small but very flattering

Runs small - I usually wear a size 4 and even the size 6 was snug. Great for small chested ladies - loved the shoulder pads. Lots of compliments. Quite short, had to be careful to not flash anyone.

Nice dress but had a hole in the side seam that I didn't notice until the day of my event. Patched it with fashion tape and it held up ok.

great day to night dress

i'm typically a 4 but went up to a 6 based on reviews and am glad i did. it gave me enough room for food. it's fitted at the rib cage, not the waist, so you can actually eat a decent amount. i wld size based on your rib cage (mine is large). i wore a cami under because it was indecent not too. it would be really scandalous for me without the cami, but depending on your chest size you might be able to make it work. very short, even at my height. i wore tights under because it was cold

Hot Dress! Got loads of compliments. Runs small, size up.

I love this dress, was definitely very short and should have probably ordered a 12 to be more comfortable. but I put on a pair of tights and it was a winner. This was for a New Year Work Party. Would definitely order it again, but again - runs small.

My husband loved it!

Loved this! It's so flattering! Rocked this for Valentine's Day and my husband couldnt take his eyes off me. The long sleeves keep the deep V neckline on this dress classy and the dark green color is lovely! It DOES run small as most people have said. I rented an 8 and 10 and honestly could of used a 12! Highly recommended though!

I received lots of compliments. I have a large chest so I had to wear something underneath.

Fit well. I just did not think my chest would be out as much as it was. I thought it would hold me in a little better. That was the only thing I had to adjust. Otherwise beautiful dress!

Beautiful dress in theory, fit was really off.

This is a beautiful dress- the shoulder pads are awesome! Great structure idea. However, it was really small, SUPER low cut, and very short. It felt really revealing and exposing.

It looked great and was very flattering.

You NEED tape if you have size B cup or below. It's a bit tough for a sit down situation. I wore it to a church wedding and maybe shouldn't have worn it into church. Was perfect for the reception.
