Compliments all night!

Fit very well. Rented a 2 as well, which fit, but the 4 gave me a bit more breathing room! The quality of fabric is very nice, and thick, but not heavy at all! A blast to dance in, and felt elegant and sexy. A must rent !!!

is the color more of a burgundy or a true red? I know the color says burgundy, but in the stock photo it looks like a true red and in your photo it looks a little darker. It looks beautiful on you in your photo. Thanks!

Slit was WAY too high!

I couldn't wear it because the slit was too high. Other than that, it fit perfectly! Looked so good. Maybe if I was on the red carpet I could have pulled it off, but not for a wedding

This dress was great for my friends black tie wedding. I was worried about the slit being too high, but it was tasteful in my opinion.

Very comfortable and true to size. The open back detail is gorgeous and the high neck was wasn't stiff. I'm 5'4 and had on small heels and the length was perfect.

It's really a showstopping, sexy but still appropriate dress.

Great look for some sex appeal but not too much. It does run a little long for short girls. I wore 4 inch heels and still had to pick it up to keep from dragging. Also, this dress shows every lump and bump underneath and with the low back and high slit, you can't wear spanx. Make sure you have a backless, strapless stick on bra and a seamless thong/g-string.

Beautiful gown for a ball or gala!

True to size, was a little short, but I'm 5'10" would be great for shorter women. Awesome slit, sexy back, neck was a little tight if you are heavy set it might bother a bit. Overall great Dress good quality

The fit and cut of this dress were the utmost flattering.

I wore a six long, which is true to size as I am 5 foot nine but with the heels that I wore I was about 6 feet tall. It went right to the ground so only get along if you are a very tall female. I received so many compliments at that formal event and I would rent that dress again in a heartbeat.

Gorgeous, sexy gown

Overall, the fit was true to size. I found it to be slightly loose around the bust (I'm a 34C) but it didn't look saggy or anything - just something I noticed. I would definitely rent this again...I loved it!

Bold, confident, classy! I absolutely loved it!

This dress is amazing. It fit perfectly and hugged in all the right places. The material is not too thick and not too thin, making it very formal. As other renters have mentioned, the neck is a bit tight, but nothing unbearable. The slit is just the right height, yet the back is relatively low cut. The only issue I had with this was that the top of my spanx were showing so I was constantly having to readjust. There was also an area in the back where it was a tad bit too large so the fabric would gap open, but overall this wasn't much of a problem. You will need a strapless bra with this dress, in case you can't tell from the pictures. I can't tell you how much I loved this dress, it made me feel amazing. I felt confident, classy, and sophisticated. It was the perfect rental for a military ball, but would be great with any holiday event. The only downside to this dress was that I had to return it. I had the hardest time sending this dress back because I loved it so much! Go rent this dress!

The dress fit super sexy!

The slit was very high, but I think because of the material and the tight fit the dress stayed in place very well. I did wear my hair down and it kept getting caught on the hooks for the neck piece.

Classy & sophisticated + sexy & comfortable!

I rented this dress as a backup to another dress I ordered for a black tie Christmas event, and ended up going with this because it fit me perfectly! Classic elegance, yet sexy with the high slit and open back. Material is stretchy and very comfortable - great for both sitting and dancing. I'm 5'9", 127lb, athletic build and the 2L was just right. There was a little bit of a gap in the lower back, but I think a size 0 would have been a bit too snug for comfort. Tons of compliments all night long, so sad to send it back!!

The dress is beautiful! I received A LOT of compliments.

The slit is somewhat high but still felt classy to me. Even with the smaller size, the top was still slightly big. I think this was partially due to the fact my torso is short too so it would bunch at the sides at times. The dress is very long. I wore 4-5 inch heels and the dress still drug on the ground. I wouldn’t rent this particular dress again just because of the way it fit me. But if you’re just a bit taller, it may fit better.

This dress is absolutely stunning!

This dress is even more gorgeous in person. I was worried about sizing since I'm usually between a 2 or 4. But the fit hugs you in all the right places, with just the right amount of stretch. The slit is a little high but was perfect for my height 5'2 . The dress is a little long, but all dresses are long for my height. The color is definitely burgundy, but get it looked a little more red online. But it's a gorgeous piece and I got endless compliments. Rent this dress! #Glamorous #stunning #NYE #wedding

AMAZING

Ordered this as my backup dress and changed my mind as soon as I put it on. It was perfect and I wish I could wear it every day! I am 5'9, 120 lbs, and barely an A bust. The 2L fit like it was made for me. I had on 3.5" heels and the dress still dragged the ground just a bit. I've never had a dress this long on me! Received so many compliments, and would 100% rent again. Fabric was comfortable and the whippy skirt was so fun to dance in!

The dress colour and fit were gorgeous- I am a little larger in the hip so the sip was always a little open - not terrible though - still very acceptable. The back is stunning - my fiancé went gaga for it

I'm between a 12 and 14 in dress size right now and the 14 L was the PERFECT fit for me! This was my backup so I'm glad I went with my measurements and not how other things have been fitting me. My first choice the 12 fit me better but this one was perfect for my event!

Gorgeous and elegant

Absolutely lovely, was originally my back up choice but this dress blew my other one away. It was a little long, which looked great with the flow and flowed beautifully, but made walking up stairs a little difficult along with people stepping on the hems. The slit was a little high for sitting, but that can be blamed on my hips.

This dress was fantastic!

I ordered both the six and the eight regular and decided to wear the eight simply because it was a little less tight the fit was perfect on my body and the links was great with heels!

Lovely dress!

So I wouldn't say this is a true to size dress due to the fact I had to wear the bigger size. Bigger size had to be worn because of the slit coming up the leg. I'm 5'10" and the slit was quite high in the 10L so when I tried on the 12 it was a little better. The dress was bigger in the back due to that but dress was beautiful on. Back is open and low cut. If your thinking of wearing a high spanx you won't be able to. Tons of compliments all night. Loved the dress overall for the event that I attended. Would recommend.

Compliments all night!

This was my back up dress but I'm so happy I wore it instead to a black tie gala, I felt comfortable and sexy all night. It is very low cut in the back so i couldn't find a bra but being small chested I just went without and it was fine. At first I thought it was too tight but it's just very form fitting. The neck was a little right too but I got used to it If you're bigger on the bottom, I would size up it's true to size. The slit in the skirt perfectly shows a little thigh, sexy but classy! Easy to move and dance in, I would recommend it as a rental for sure.

Wish they had the 4L in stock

Gorgeous dress. The 2L was just a little to snug and the 4R was just a little to short. The 4L would have been perfect. This is a snug fit dress! It works great on an athletic and tall body type. If you have a large neck the band around the neck may be tight.

Mardi Gras Ball

This dress was gorgeous, but other reviews are correct in saying the top runs large. I got the next size up as a backup, so I'm not sure if the size down would have been better or if the hips would have been too tight. I'm 5'3 and wore 5' wedges with the dress and it was still slightly long. I ended up pinning the neck and not latching the top so it wasn't too tight and didn't come undone.

Gorgeous dress - rich color, beautiful and flattering cut and comfortable!

This dress is stunning! I received many compliments and felt confident and comfortable in it. I typically wear a 4 and ordered a 4 with size 6 back up. I ended up wearing the 6 as the 4 was a little tight in the neck and thighs, and the 6 was just more comfortable. The 6 was a little loose on the lower back but certainly not too noticeable. I wore 4 inch heels, which are higher than my typical, to accommodate for the length. It flows beautifully and danced with ease in it. I highly recommend this dress - it's beautiful!

THIS DRESS WAS BEAUTIFUL!

This dress was beautiful! I wore this to my school's nurses ball. I loved the burgundy color, and the neck line and the back of the dress! I ordered a 6R and 8R. I am 5'7 and weigh 145 lbs. Sorry I do not have a photo! I was thinking that the 6R was going to be perfect but it was a taaad too small, so I'm glad I ordered the 8R and wore that size. I wore 4.5 inch heels with the dress and I felt that the length was perfect. The material of the dress was nice and thicker, so thinking I would be cold in the dress because of the open back was not the case for me, I felt comfortable and warm. The neck area is a little tight but not too bad. I did not wear spanks or a bra with my dress and I was fine (I am a 36B). For bigger breasted ladies I would definitely suggest pasties. I should have worn them but forgot (oops!). The ONLY thing I will say about this dress is that I am a little curvy, so it shows off my lower stomach pooch, I wish I would have gone with a dress that did not show off my stomach area, but I am still very happy I wore this! I got lots of compliments on wearing it! Overall, very happy! And I will definitely rent from here again! Shipping and dropping off the dress was very quick and easy as well!

Nice for winter wedding

I am a C cup and the chest area was large on me, also it was very long (I'm 5'3 without heals). Wasn't my favorite dress but I didn't send it back
