Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved the dress! So happy with this dress for my day of bridesmaid duties! Stretch fit meant it was easy to move, but with a lovely lacy finish. Flattering shape for a my curvy figure. I'm about 165 cm and definitely needed to wear heels to fit. And the bride was thrilled with my choice too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant gown for Formal Ball I rented this dress early September and was so happy with the whole experience. The dress arrived ahead of schedule and was beautifully packaged. I received so many compliments on the night and felt a million bucks. I found the dress a bit tight in the hips due to my body shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gown, even better service! I rented the Lori Black Gown by Ella Zeitoune for a ball last week. I was meant to receive the dress two days before the ball but ended up receiving it six days before! This was such a lovely surprise as I was able to try it on properly, adjust as necessary, and had the weekend to shop for accessories/shoes etc. I'm naturally full busted with slim hips which has always been a nightmare clothes-wise but this dress fit me like a glove - no need for a bra as the dress has multiple slip-like layers underneath and is fully supportive. I can actually say I was 100% comfortable the other night and did not need to adjust once! I received so many lovely compliments on the gown - and returning the dress was just as simple as delivery. One thing I will add for those looking at getting this dress - it is VERY long and designed to be this way. I ordered a size 12 and I am 5 foot 5, so even with tall platform heels I needed to pull the dress up to walk. It wasn't an issue for me but just a heads up in case anyone is in the same boat size wise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Dress For My University Ball I rented this dress as my backup dress for my uni ball last week. I loved it so much that I ended up wearing to the event instead of my first choice dress! The fit was so sleek and comfortable, I felt so confident in this dress!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing gown for a wedding! I hired this stunning dress for a wedding. I got so many compliments! Material is slightly stretchy and extremely comfortable. I am approx. 168cm tall and the gown was floor length plus a little bit... maybe a touch too long but wasn't a problem at all. Dress aside, the service I received was excellent and very helpful. The dress arrived earlier than expected which was such a relief as I could try the dress on and make sure it fit a fair few days before the event. Overall an amazing gown for any event!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the black tie ball I rented this dress to wear to a black tie, fundraising gala and it was perfect. I received so many incredible compliments and I felt like a rock-star. The fit was perfect for my pear silhouette and really flaunted all my assets - I was really feeling like Kimmy K in this number. Would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of hiring this dress for a formal occasion. It did not disappoint.
