Uncomfortable and disappointing.

The material, particularly the flowers around the armpits, dig into your skin making this a very uncomfortable dress. Shame as it has so much potential.

Big and boxy

Had high hopes since I've been wanting to try MN. The hip area fit fine (I'm slightly larger there) but it was too big around my chest. Since it was boxy, I looked like I was wearing grandma's linens. Swiftly returned it since I had tested the smallest size available.

Loved it

Beautiful dress for a black tie optional wedding. Got multiple compliments! I did not find the dress to be uncomfortable like some of the other reviewers but even if it was I wouldn't mind as it was such a unique and stunning design.

Love Love Love - Perfect for opera dinner and premiere

This dress is just perfect. I was hesitant to order because of the initial unfavorable reviews, but this fit is TTS like other dresses from this designer. I felt beautiful and confident, and this dress elicited many compliments. This dress would be gorgeous for a formal outdoor wedding. I had no issues with tailoring of fabric. If you like the look of this dress, you should be very happy with this rental!

Beautiful and unique!

I loved this dress and wore it for an evening wedding. It fit perfectly and was really comfortable. I would recommend it and wear it again.

When I walked out of the bedroom my husband lit up at the sight of me

The dress was so comfortable and fit like a dream. Hugged in all the right places and none of the wrong ones.

Beautiful features; abrasive at arms.

This is really a beautiful dress with vibrant colors and intricate details. The ONLY drawback is the abrasive edges at the arms. Other than that, I highly recommend. Beautiful!

This was a great dress!

I received many complements on the dress and it was perfect for a summer wedding. The fit was good all around and it was very comfortable. My only complaint was that by the end of the night the lace did start to irritate the skin under my arm a bit.

Curvy and awesome

I am between a 6 and 8, and went with the 6. Glad I did! Note, though, that I love my curves . If you want more room and less cling, go with the size up. I wore it for 12 hours. At the end of day, the material by my armpits was a touch red like others have mentioned, but I never felt rubbing. Would rent again!

I felt so beautiful in this dress. The quality of the fabric was magnificent.

I had to re-order in a larger size because the 14 would barely zip, and I couldn't breathe. This dress is extremely tight through the rib-cage. Even the 16R was tight, but it better than the 14. Loved the quality of the dress.

My fav by far thus far

This dress is amaze balls. My only critique is that the red is not red it's more of a hot pink had a baby with fuchsia. The dress is tailored without being tight and is three dresses the shell the sheer black and nude dresses underneath where you look like ur naked but not. Love love love love. Good for all occasions I'm going to wear it at least once more before sending it back. Have to rent at least once

Great Business Cocktail

Had a great time at the acquisition party and got so many compliments from my coworkers. The women coworkers asked where I got it and I was shameless. So happy I tried this one on. Wore with 6 inch heels.

Elegant and comfortable!

Read the reviews and glad I went with an 8! I'm normally a 4/6. The fit and length were perfect! Very elegant. Had 2 weddings in 2 weeks and wore it to both!

ABSOLUTE FAVORITE DRESS I'VE EVER RENTED!!! Total stunner!

I read all of the reviews and thankfully followed the suggestions of ordering up. I rented this for an important event and so I wanted to feel good that night and not have any fit issues so I actually ordered two sizes up (I typically wear a 16 and I ordered the 20), it was absolutely perfect and so thankful I did (I hate too tight things around my midsection so that tiny bit of extra room made it skim my silhouette and it made for a very flattering look). The embroidery is so expensive looking and especially the netting detail. I chose to style it with a body suit and sheer socks for a little something different which really made it shine. Absolutely my favorite dress I've ever rented.

Gorgeous detail

This dress runs small, and the lining is incredibly small. The dress fit/zipped up perfectly, but the liner underneath on the bottom half was so very tight! I'd advise girls with wide hips/large thighs to size up.

Statement Wedding Guest Dress

I wore this for a Labor Day weekend wedding on a mountain in Switzerland. I wanted a dress that was a bit heavier since the weather was supposed to be chilly. It was actually pretty warm out but the dress was still comfortable anyway. It is multiple layers so the weight is a little heavy but not overly so. The size 6 was a little big--I would have been better with a 4 but made it work.
