V Plunge Embellished Gown is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most stunning dress I've ever worn! From the moment I pulled the dress out of the beautifully presented box, I was in love. The intricate sequin and beading detail is incredible and photos do not do it justice. I rented this dress for a black tie ball and felt so glamorous all night, receiving a ridiculous amount of compliments. The fit is true to size however I do recommend making sure you have Hollywood tape on hand as it is very low cut. The whole process of renting the dress was so easy and simple and I've been so happy with the level of customer service, including a reminder text to return my dress on Monday! I'll definitely be using GlamCorner for future events.
