Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful fit and feels great I rented this dress and it was amazing. It fit perfectly, very slimming. The bodice and neck line is unusual and the fabric is a very light velvet. Beautiful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not like the photo I rented this dress loving the neckline but unfortunately the fabric is thick and looks quite worn (as in faded in areas).... love most of the dresses when they arrive just wouldn't suggest this one for a corporate setting.
