Illusion Gown is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Experience From Beginning to End I rented the David Meister Illusion gown for a 1940s themed function. I'm 5'9 - short in the waist with long legs and an ample bust. The sizing (10) was perfect and I received an overwhelming number of compliments. I won't hesitate to use Glam Corner again; the customer service was faultless and the whole transaction was a breeze. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not that great of a dress but loved the service! So I didn't really like the dress I received; the embroidery was a lot different to how I thought it would be (its quite... chunky...) so I ended up returning it. BUT I was really impressed on the service. I just slipped it in the return bag, sent glamcorner an email and then got a full refund. Would totally rent again, hopefully I pick a better dress next time!
