This dress is stunning which made it so difficult to send back.

I am usually a true size 0 in everything I've previously rented. This dress fit like a 2 or 4. The straps adjust, but only slightly. There is a built-in cup for support in the bust. I am a 32 C and the bust and waist just floated. The color is just like the pictures and would have been very "Sugar-plum fairy" for the Christmas party I planned to wear it to...

Knockout dress!

So many compliments! Loved this dress. It ran large, so I safety-pinned the straps to criss-cross in the back (they were still too long although they were slightly adjustable).

Super fun bold dress. Ran a bit large, would size down if I rented again.

Magenta Lamé Amazingness

Let's just say this is not for the faint of heart. It is magenta, shiny lamé fabric. The plates are very playful but can add bulk if you are bottom heavy. Overall an amazing dress, wish there wasn't padding in the boob area though!

Loved it!

The dress was just as pictured and went over great at my holiday party. I didn't wear a bra with it, and the adjustable straps worked well. I really loved being able to use Hollywood tape under the different layers to make it a bit shorter.

Runs large

Beautiful dress and fabric. However, the dress runs large. The straps have very little adjustability and overall it was too large for me at the top. Did not wear.

Received compliments all night

I had a baby 5 months ago and wanted to wear something fun but forgiving. This dress hit the mark and then some! It fit perfectly! Definitely true to size. The zipper was a little hard to get over the waist seam, but that was just the construction of the dress. It is SO flattering. My mommy belly was WELL hidden under the pleats and layers. If you are very busty, this dress will be great for you. I'm pretty small up top and had to wear a padded bra inside the built in cups and tie the straps to give a "halter" look. The material is sooo pretty. It draws attention without being too "in your face" flashy. Since becoming a mom, this dress definitely helped me feel like my old self :)

NYE dress

This dress was great for New Years Eve! Note that the dress is heavy and it causes the straps to loosen and if you're small chested like me it will hang a little! I also felt that it was a little too loose around the bodice.

Poor fit

Cute on hanger but the bottom fit cute...lining inside fitted..,the top was huge and stretched out with too much padding and straps that hardly adjust. The least favorite thing I've worn or rented since I started unlimited a year ago. I did wear with a buttoned jean jacket, so it looked like a skirt but as a dress it has fit issues

Waited 2 months for this to become available

I was so looking forward to wearing this but it runs huge. Not only was the zero still too big in the top but the boning bowed outward making the top bubble out (i'm pointing to the area in my pic). It was so weird, so I am going to try another size zero... Also, the adjustable straps are ribbons so they loosen from the weight of the dress almost immediately! So sad! But great color and concept.

Fun & flirty

I loved this dress. Top has nice structure with boning. Somewhat stretchy, fitted material from waste down. Very figure flattering and very comfortable. Tea length on me, which was perfect. Only con for me as others have mentioned was the straps loosening and slipping. Had to adjust a few times through the night.

Fun, festive and flattering

I usually wear and 8 but wore a 6. I'm more bottom heavy but because the dress is well-made it fell nicely and was still flattering. The downside is the straps are like a bra with adjusters on the back that kept loosening so I kept having someone tighten them for me through the night. It's a heavy dress so they kept slipping. Would recommend pinning or taping them. Also the lining in the bra poked up a little bit could be taped if needed. Overall really fun, comfortable and unique dress.

Super cool texture!

Love the way it fits. It's a very unique dress, but feels super fancy. It also has adjustable straps which is helpful for making it fit just right.

Awkward Fit

I love the color and style of this dress, but the top was too big. The bottom underskirt seemed to fit fine, so I worry that the size down might be too tight.

Lovely for Maren Morris

The color and fabric are gorgeous in person! I opted for no bra because of the built in pads. I didn't love how the straps loosened all night. Definitely not something I would wear to work, but it was perfect for the concert I went to.

Tricky zipper

I rented this because I loved the look of the dress in pictures. It was available so I rented to so I knew what size to get for a future event. SO GLAD I DID!! First the zipper got caught in the dress fabric making it impossible to zip. The second thing, I found that it ran small around the chest, which I usually do not have a problem with. Third, in general it just wasn't flattering on me. This one is off the list.

Unique dress which is so much fun! I got as a back up for a wedding but chose a different one. Fit was true to size. Lots of support for the girls so didn't need a bra. Hopefully I'll have another event soon so I can rent this again!

This dress was the BOMB

I absolutely loved this dress. It was so flattering on me. I'm heavy set and it hugged me in all the right places. The only complaint was that the straps were a little long. They are adjustable but we're still oversized. I safety pinned them and make it work. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking.

Long dress

The dress was longer than I thought. I pulled the bottom layer up to make the dress shorter. The zipper would make a weird look in the back and not normal

Salsa Sensation

Perfect for a night of dancing! I took salsa lessons in this dress. It made me look like I knew what I was doing! lol! The stretch is a life saver. Such a fluid dress to hide u wanted "curves". Only down part is the unsupporting straps. I ended up knotting them. Earrings are RTR as well!

Christmas tree?

Considering my body type and height this made me look bigger than I am because of the tiered skirt. First thing my brother said was due to the shine in the dress and the design it reminded him of Christmas tree. Really loved the fabric though. It may be better for a slender/ taller body types.

The life of the party

This dress was so fun to wear. I normally wear a size 10/12, but as with many of these dresses had to go up in size. I received a TON of complements - it's such a fun dress to wear. The straps were very loose so I had to Macgyver a solution with a hair tie, but really it was worth it.

Not what I was expecting

Very pretty dress, love the metallic pink color. However, it flared out at the waist due to the ruffles and wasn't that flattering.

.

The color is so pretty. The dress is so pretty. It fits true to size. However, the straps are quite long and you wont be able to adjust them much. It was necessary to pin the straps to fit me. Maybe if you are smaller on top than bottom you should get the size for your top since the skirt portion is not fitted

LOVE this dress! the color is beautiful and very flattering. it was very comfortable!

my only complaint was that the straps fell down as i stood/sat down. it is adjustable but only a little bit and it didn't stay once i made it tighter. even with that, it was still a great overall fit and i would still recommend!!

Cute dress, I kinda wish it was a little shorter. It's flattering though.

Dress fit nicely. The breast area may be a bit big if you are small up top. The zipper was very difficult though I had plenty of room in the dress. It's a cute dress. I wore for a birthday.

This event was a successful charity fundraiser.

This dress was stunning! I got tons of great compliments. Two minor defects - the strap adjusters slipped all night and made the straps fall dow incessantly. And, the interior underwire was poking out of the fabric and scratch my skin.

I really liked this dress! It was so fun for a night out.

Loved this dress - it moved really well (see the twirl!) and was very forgiving to areas I like to hide (tummy). I am very large chested (DDD) and it fit, but did show off some cleavage. For my event, it worked great, but definitely something to be aware of. Only con was the fabric on the zipper was pulling back and the straps slipped, so I had to have a friend keep tightening them.

Perfect Prince Party Dress

This dress is FUN! A girl asked to peek at the tag to know who the designer was. Had to wear Spanx to get the zipper up comfortably. Other than that it was very comfortable to wear.

Didn't wear

The color on this is AMAZING, but the fit I didn't think was flattering. For those of us with wider hips it doesn't do much for the shape.
