Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning, perfect dress for a dinner function I hired this dress for a dinner function commemorating a victoria cross recipient of the airforce. It was perfect in every way; the fit so flattering and fit the occasion perfectly. I felt like a million dollars and everyone commented how lovely I looked. To get a major confidence boost id wear this dress again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Dress for the Races I rented this for Derby Day and it was fantastic. I rented a size 8 and it was true to size and fitted well. I felt fantastic in it, and had loads of compliments - it is feminine, classic, stylish, perfect length (below knee) and comfortable. The lining is quite thick which is great as it hides all manner of sins (but does make the dress warm!). The only down side is that I have quite broad shoulders and there is not much give in the lace so it was quite firm across my shoulders. Would certainly recommend and would wear again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from excellent black tie dress I rented this for a black tie event and was very happy with it overall. It fit perfectly and was a good length (I'm 170cm and it fell just below the knee). The lining is quite thick so holds everything in! Beautiful hourglass silhouette as it tapers to the knees.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from i felt like a starlet! I couldnt find a dress in the shops i liked so looked at the glamcorner website and i found the perfect dress. My event was very public so i dont want to post photos of me in it but suffice to say i looked and felt fantastic. I had many compliments! The dress fit perfectly. I rented the size 12 as im not twiggy, the dress hugged and slimmed me and was very comfortable, thenk you glamcorner! I will definitely rent again for my next event.
