Draped Lace Gown - Black is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Masked Ball dress Great dress that hides a lot of imperfections!! When it arrived I thought it would never fit when I held it up- rang Glam Corner- listen to them, they know what they are talking about. They sent me the next size up which arrived the next day but they were right, the first one fitted beautifully and the draping hides a tummy and big hips. I only wish is that you could rent for longer before your event just in case the dress doesn’t work out and you need to reorder. I did panic beforehand,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous dress If you’ve read more than one review you’ll know the service at Glam Corner is first class. It was my first time and everything went so smoothly. This was my back up dress and I chose to wear it because it fit so well. I am short (1.56m, 5ft4 I think?) so it draped the floor quite a bit but I think it’s meant to and the material is really tough - mine and other heels stood on it during the night and no tears! It’s thick material and very flattering. I’d describe myself as short, big busted and short waisted but it fit me perfectly! Also, I’m a 12 (probably on the limits of a 12 at the moment to be truthful) and this dress zipped up very comfortably

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this dress! I rented this dress a few weeks ago for a formal ball. The dress arrived early & felt absolutely amazing to wear. The fabric around your hips/thighs stretches which made it feel so comfortable all night! It says it's a larger make but I stuck with my regular size & it was fine. Would definitely hire this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfortable stretchy gown I really wanted to wear this to a wedding but it was very very long I didn't want to walk around all night holding my dress up to prevent tripping over , its very flattering and hides all the bumps and lumps and makes you look thinner because of the gathering around the tummy area it somehow pulls your waist in and gives you a sexy glamorous look i would hire this if it was a long midi length

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect dress for a black tie ball I was slightly apprehensive about renting a dress without trying it on for a Black Tie event but I'm so glad I took the plunge! The service com Glam Corner was fantastic and the dress was beautiful. The fit was perfect and I had so many compliments I wanted to keep it forever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very flattering I wore this dress recently to a ball. I'm a casual dresser and usually wear a size 14/16. After reading the reviews on here, a lot said this dress fits larger, so I decided to go with the size 14 in the try on option ahead of my event. So lucky I did this - I had issues zipping the 14 all the way up. So I ordered the size 16 for my event and it was a perfect fit. This dress is perfect for curvy women, it flatters the curves and hides all the bits we like to hide! I received so many compliments and would definitely recommend this dress. I will say the only downside is that the dress is very long; I'm 5.8 and wore 4-inch heels and this dress was still very long so I had to be careful when walking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect dress for a formal dress code wedding! I attended a wedding yesterday with a formal dress code. I chose this dress as it was beautiful and flattering around my tummy and thigh/hip area. It arrived in pristine condition, and was the perfect length for me. I had a backup dress, a langhem black lace gown but it was too short on me ( I'm 167cm). I got so many compliments on how beautiful the dress was and how great I looked. Will definitely use Glamcorner for my future events.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wedding guest What an experience, customer service was more than 100%. I received my dresses 2 days before my initial rental date, was super happy. Tried on the dresses it was perfect, only downfall it was a little over worn on tulle. Called customer service was extremely happy with the service, sales assistance without hesitation checked see if another size was available. Got sent out that afternoon received the next day. Wow it was perfect. Everybody loved the dress, as so did I, bump friendly I normally wear 14. Dress true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect black-tie dress for a corporate event This dress fit like an absolute glove! It draped in a very flattering way across my tummy and hid all the lumps and bumps I was hoping it would! The tulle draped skirt is stunning when walking across a room and the slit up one leg is very sexy. Loved it! The only thing I could possibly fault is the lace around the arms, it was a bit scratchy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant dress for Gala Ball I rented this dress as a back-up dress and it was very elegant, soooo comfortable but glamorous at the same time. Perfect for the hourglass figure! Unfortunately I didn't get to wear it due to damage in the lace which no doubt will get fixed... Another down point was it was very very long even with 4/5inch heels. I'm 165cm. I would recommend a smaller size as this comes up big.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bridesmaid dress for a friends wedding I requested this dress to try-on and plan to wear it as Maid-of-Honour at my friend's wedding. The website made it super easy for the bride and I to search for a dress and share ideas, the try-on service was very convenient and the dress was gorgeous. The fit was snug, so I plan to order a larger size as a back-up. The bride is very happy and so am I.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect dress to wear to the ball! I hired this dress late last year for my partners work ball. I was amazed with the communication and how the girls when above and beyond to help me through the process since this was the first time hiring. Due to my size not being available as another renter was late in returning they generously offered compensation and ended up giving me 2 dresses for the price of 1 so that I would not be left with nothing to wear. It arrived in immaculate packaging and looked like it was new off the rack! I received endless comments, the quality and fit was perfect. Returning was just as easy. All-in-all I was happy with my decision to hire from Glam Corner and need another excuse to hire again! I'm sure with our wedding coming up, there will be many opportunities! Thanks ladies XO

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Defence Force Ball 2015 After initially ordering an Alex Perry gown I was unsure if it would fit due to have wide shoulders from weight training. The dress arrived promptly the week of the ball but it didn't fit my shoulders. I quickly rang Glam Corner who immediately sent me two different size dresses and they arrived the day prior - phew. Not only were they ever so kind to help me out free of charge by sending me another dress but they sent 2. I am so touched by their kindness and because of that I have ordered many more times from them . Thankyou x

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant black tie I loved wearing this dress to an elegant black tie event recently. It was very comfortable and easy to wear, also flattering for straighter body types as the cut creates curves. GC were so helpful throughout the entire process, I can't wait to use them again Xx
