It features a gorgeous paisley floral lace fitted against the body for the perfect silhouette. The crew neckline drops into a deep V and semi sheer sleeves show off a peek of skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Dress I rented this dress as a backup for my school formal however unfortunately i didnt get to wear it as i chose my original dress. I would recommend this dress to anyone as it is simply amazing and fits very well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant but fun dress for a black tie event I wore this dress for my work ball at crown palladium which was a black tie event. The dress arrived perfectly boxed up, earlier than expected and in excellent condition. It is a very elegant dress and the way the skirt falls off the lace is very flattering around the stomach area, perfect after eating a 3 course dinner! I wore a U-bra under the dress which you weren't able to see at all. The lace is well fitted anyway and has an underlay so it is quite supportive. The dress does have a bit of a train at the back, I am only 5 foot 5 so it was quite long on me. The split on the right leg is extremely high but the dress has a built in black undergarment to keep modesty in check!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect dress for charity ball I hired this dress 2 weeks ago for a fundraiser charity ball. It was the perfect fit and very formal which was perfect for the ball. I'm about 5ft4 and the dress was quite long so I had to carry the train most of the time but that wasn't too much of a nuisance. I was complimented all night long and was so happy how the dress turned out. It was my back up dress and ended up fitting much better than the initial one i had picked. you have to step into the dress like a leotard so it's probably ideal for occasions when you don't plan on drinking too much because you'll need another person to unzip you before you go to the ladies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My backup dress I had this arrive as my back up dress but I ended up wearing the Lori Red Gown - which I totally recommend! The Alexandria Gown is beautiful but was too tight for me - I am a 12-14 up top so possibly if you are the same you might need to upsize - but I would still say it is true to size for a small/regular size 12 woman. The rest of the dress fit fine. It is really gorgeous otherwise!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very elegant dress for my Masquerade Ball :) I rented this last week and it fits perfectly. Arrived in a proper box with black paper packaging. The material of the bottom part is good that it flown to the back when you walk (feeling like a model-ish). The splitted part can be very annoying but worry not, there's like a jumpsuit underneath to cover. My height is 168cm and I wore a 7cm heels, the back of the dress flows nicely on the floor. It always ended up getting stepped up on so you might wanna be careful with that. Overall it's beyond perfect! ;)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Special Awards Ceremony Dress I rented this gorgeous gown a week ago & it does not disappoint! I had so many compliments from people on the night & it really is a very sexy yet classy option. The only down-side is the gown has a built in bodysuit with no clips to open so going to the toilet can be a bit tricky! I would recommend this to anyone though as it is a very flattering gown.
