Very fun dress for a daytime birthday celebration.

Waist was a little loose and not flattering but the color and lace made up for that.

CUTE, more casual in person

This dress is super cute - just a little more casual than it looks in the picture. The underlay is a grey, t-shirt like material and gives the dress a more dressed down feel. I still would have worn it, but unfortunately it runs large and was pretty long and loose on me. The cut out in the back hit pretty low (I would have been able to wear a regular bra with it) and looked funny :( I rented a size 0. This dress would be amazing someone a little taller!!

I wore this on a date night with my boyfriend, he loved the cut out in the back!

I am 5'4" and the dress hit mid thigh, def not as short as it is when the model is wearing it. I was worried it would be too short but it was perfect! Under the lace is a jersey material so it makes it have a more casual feel. I wore flats and kept it casual, although I'm sure you could dress it up with heels and fun jewelry. The cut out in the back is in the perfect spot, I could still wear a normal bra! I probably could have gotten away with ordering a size smaller, it was a little loose in the waist. I would be careful if you have curves/hips. The way the material is pleated adds volume around the hip and butt.

you look great in the dress, but they did give the model's height at the above description, along with how it would fit on someone 5'5"...just sayin'...

Loving my dress & not having one ounce of concern about being uncomfortable! Who doesn't love being fancy & comfy at the same time?!

I rented this for my best friends bachelorette party over Memorial Day weekend. It was thee perfect dress! It's the most comfortable dress and has a great cutout in the back that everyone commented on. The best part is that you can wear a normal bra and it won't show. It does stretch out a little after a bit. I wish I could have gotten one size smaller - it wasn't a huge problem though.

I loved this dress! It's the perfect dress for a wedding, party or a nice lunch with the girls! It can be as formal or informal as you wish depending on how you accessorize it. I loved the back of the dress too! This dress is more comfortable than some of my pajamas! I loved the fact you could wear a regular bra with this dress too! My three-year-old daughter was also in love with this dress, and insisted on trying it on as well. Thank you rent the runway!

I rented this dress for my 10-year high school reunion and it was beautiful! Absolutely amazing! I also rented the Shoshanna Floral Dixie Dress as my second choice for $25 and ended up wearing that one instead. I had a really hard time deciding because both dresses looked so amazing. The Cut 25 Neon Lace Party Dress is such a beautiful color especially on tan skin and dark hair. I loved the way it made my green eyes pop! This dress is also so comfortable! It’s like wearing pajamas! This would be a great dress to wear if you’re not sure how dressed up to be. You can wear fancy jewelry to make it look very formal, or flip flops for a more casual look. The lace was very high quality and the jersey material under is so soft. The size 2 fit me the best, although I’m usually a size 4, so I would say this dress runs large. The back was also very cute! Thank you rent the runway for having such great products!

This dress just wasn't very flattering on, and a lot more casual than it appeared in the photos. I didn't wear it and wasn't happy with it.

Could have bought one nicer

I usually really love the stuff from RTR because it looks like it cost 10 times more than it did. I think if I had looked I could have found a nicer dress for the amount I rented it for. The back is also not as advertised, tailored to the model.

Pretty Lace

I loved this dress. It was much more casual in person but it still could be dressed up. The lace got caught on things some times and the back and the whole thing was a little bit loose on me. Otherwise I did absolutely love it.

Fun & Flirty! Love it!

Wow, the dress fit me like a glove and I didn't want to take it off! I heard the dress runs slightly big so I got the 0 and it fit perfectly! Vibrant color, quality lace, comfy lining, flattering fit...I was so happy with it! Since I'm only 5' 2", the dress wasn't as short as it is on the model (it was only a couple inches above my knees), but the cutout in the back totally made it still fun and flirty. I paired it with a sparkly necklace and metallic pewter strappy sandals to dress up the look. I wore it to a Vegas club and felt like I was one of the more "modestly dressed" girls, but the guys LOVED it! One guy even complimented on how I stylish I was! I guess you don't need to show a ton of skin to still get attention from men! Good to know that!

perfect dress for night out in NYC!

absolutely loved this dress! The other dress I ordered was a disaster so the fact that this fit was a relief. The dress is super comfortable and was easy to dress up with heels and the right accessories. I'm usually a 2/small but the 0 fit perfectly so that is why I would say it runs large. I wish I could keep this one because of the great fit and comfort and the fact it could be worn dressy or casual!

Randomly approached by the College Humor film crew in Washington Square Park

This dress is very cool and casual, with vibrant purple lace dressed down by the soft heather grey jersey lining. The open back was very flattering on my petite frame (short torso) with no visible bra straps, and transitioned beautifully from day to night. In fact, while taking a walk in Washington Square Park, I was asked to participate in this College Humor video, "The Confidence Challenge" http://youtu.be/PbHLqyTd7Cs (must have been glowing, wearing my first size zero dress)

It was cute and comfy!

I wore it to my friend's birthday celebration at a bar and it was a fun dress! The size 8 fit me perfectly. If you have no butt the back might be loose on you. The back is a little bit like a racerback also so a strapless bra might be better. I wore a regular bra and my straps stuck out a little bit.

Beautiful dress- Extremely comfortable!

The dress is extremely comfortable. The lining is more of a grey than a nude, but still looks stunning. I usually wear a size 6 but the dress definitely runs a bit large, size down for this gown. The only thing that I didn't like is the back cut out stretches a little bit and doesn't lay as nicely once you've been wearing it for a while. Not a huge deal, but something to take into consideration. Overall, I would rent this dress again based on sheer comfort.

Casual but cute

I agree with other reviewers...cute dress, but definitely more casual than the photo looks. It was short on me, so I wore it with tights and boots. It does stretch out with wear, so I recommend ordering down a size (at least for your back up). Otherwise, very cute and great for a date :)

The fashion tape was very helpful in covering up the bra in the back. It was a breezy dress, great for all types of events!

I really wish I could have kept it!!! The color is beautiful but it was hard to choose a nail color.

I ordered a size 2 and 4. Even the 2 was a little big. I'm petite but that shocked me. For your back up size get one size smaller than you would think.

So comfortable & great for a bridal shower.

This dress is so comfortable and fits perfectly with a racer-back bra. I usually wear a size 4 or a 6, and I went with the 4 on this one and would have preferred to try on a 2 because it was pretty loose. I wore it to a bridal shower with wedges and a blazer and it was a huge hit. The cut out in the back was a great little touch - received a ton of compliments on it!

I LOVE the dress! Beautiful, comfortable, fun, and just what I was hoping for!

The dress is beautiful, but runs slightly large. I usually wear a size 6, but wore the size 4--which fit perfectly. The length was great and the dress was VERY comfortable & flattering. I got SO many compliments on the color and dress. Love the open back as well. Fashion tape helped to keep the open back in place, as the back was slightly big. It was easy to dance in and is perfect for any event!

Lovely comfortable dress

The dress was very light and easy to wear on a humid Indiana afternoon. I was worried I wouldn't even fit into the 6 but ended up wearing the 4 and it fit almost right. I am pretty short, so the back gaped a little but on a taller person I think it would look fine. I used fashion tape to keep the dress straps from showing my bra straps since they are a little skinny near the top. Overall a great dress and experience!

Another win from RTR!

This dress is a fun dress, perfect for semi-casual/party events. It wasn't too long for me which was nice however the back did gap a little on my petit frame. Overall super comfy and fun and I would definitely recommend!

Can be casual or dressy depending on your mood or event!

This dress is pretty. Not my favorite RTR dress, but it worked for a fun night out. It ran big, so I wore a belt with it. I would not rent it again, but it is worth a try!

Extremely comfortable

I rented this dress for my cousins sweet 16! I figured it was perfect for a not so casual party. The dress looked amazing on and was so comfortable I didn't wanna take it off! I received many complements in the dress. I wish I could buy this dress that's how much I liked it. I order a 4 and a 2 as my back up I ended up going with the 2 because the 4 was rather lager and the back cut out was bubbling the 4 skirt also was much larger. The 2 was more flattering and fit nicer. Def a must rent!

Super comfortable!

Wore this out for a friends bachelorette party, it's really comfortable, the coloring underneath is grey. I ordered a back up size of a 4 and it was too big, seemed liked the lace had been stretched some, ended up going with the 2. Lots of compliments!

Highly recommend for a casual party.

I disagree with the other reviewers who think this dress can be dressed up for a more formal affair. This dress is more suitable for a casual wedding, like at a beach, or a bachelorette. I wore it for the latter; it was a destination party in Savannah, GA. I paired the dress with flats for our laid back dinner the first night in town. The single cut out in the back was a fun twist to the modest front. The fabric was light & perfect for the humid weather. My only complaint is that the bottom zipper was very uncomfortable, & I kept having to readjust how I was sitting in my chair at dinner because the zipper dug in to my spine so much. Obviously, this was just a problem given the chair that I was sitting in, but undoubtedly it could happen with other chairs, so just be prepared if you'll be wearing this dress & sitting for a while! I would still rent this dress again for another occasion.

Cute dress -- Comfy and runs large. I wore it to a casual BBQ pre-wedding event.

Looks a little worn but overall glad I rented it. The dress was super comfy and ran a little big - I generally wear a 4 and the 2 was fine. Also, very short.

Super cute dress

I wore this dress for a launch party for my website. In all honesty I was worried this dress would be to short for my event and this was just my back up dress. But it ended up being cuter than the one I originally figured I wear. I was comfortable and cute and I got a lot of compliments on it. I can't wait to have another event so I have a reason to rent again. ~Jenn

Meh...

Ran a little large in the back. I had to keep hiking up my (strapless) bra and tucking it in a little into the strap. Overall, it was pretty good...but I wouldn't get it again.

Not for a heavier girl!

This dress was pretty and simple, but unfortunately I was not able to wear it. It fit excellently because it runs very large, I normally wear a 14 and this was a 12. The only problem I had with it was since it has an open back it is was not flattering unless you have a perfectly smooth back. (no chunkyness) That can be a problem with a heavier girl like me.

Cute, casual, and comfortable!

This dress was very comfortable, as the underlay is soft jersey material. I rented it for a casual party and it was great for the occassion with just some cute sandals. It could also have been dressed up with heels and the right jewelry. It definitely runs huge with the biggest problem being the cut-out in the back. I had to wear the 2 just so it wouldn't be gaping off of my back. Even the 2 was loose but if I had sized down it wouldn't have fit my chest. If you have a smaller waist/back, definitely go with a smaller size that your usual.

Too short!

I wanted to get a casual dress for a beach vacation and so I thought this would be perfect. It's very casual which is fine but I'm not sure you would realize it looking at the photos. I ordered the 2 and the 4. The 2 fit me the best but it was extremely short. I thought about wearing the 4 which made a slight difference but at that point I was over it and didn't wear either of them. I would suggest 5'8+ girls order something else -- even at the beach I felt this was just a little too short!

Casual summer dress

The dress is very comfortable, but much more casual in person. It is lined with a heather gray t-shirt material. Good for a summer afternoon event. I am usually between a 4 and a 6, but have a small ribcage and was able to wear the 2.

This dress was fun but not dressy enough for my event, so I had to return.

I really liked this dress in general - the color is fantastic and the keyhole back is gorgeous. However, I needed it for a dressier club night for a friend's bachelorette weekend, so I returned this dress and wore one that I owned. Would be fun for a more casual event!

Super fun dress!

I wore this dress to a semi-formal Southern wedding. I received literally 20 compliments - the color, the lace, the back, etc. My one complaint is that the dress stretched out very quickly once I started dancing and I became self conscious about the fit. Overall it's a really fun dress to wear and the color is just amazing!

Pretty and comfortable

This style can be a "casual cocktail" dress or a "Sunday brunch" dress... depending on how it's accessorized. I wore it all day into the night on a all day date with my boyfriend. The lining is a gray heather knit jersey that rolls over slightly around the neckline making it seem more casual and easy to wear in the daytime. I thought it was a nice contrast to the royal blue lace with its unconventional fabric mixing. It has stretch so it can accommodate different bust sizes. I rented the size 2 and it was perfect... however; I am 5'11" so it may be considered slightly bigger for shorter/petite girl since it has some give, but i loved how comfortable it was and I loved the back cutout with metal zipper detail. Jut FYI- in my pic the skirt zipper is zipped, but the top panel is not zipped up so it looks a bit loose around my bust, but it is fitted when zipped closed.

I'm about the exact size of you except for the bust. Were you able to wear a regular bra with it?
RTRApril 11, 2012
Hi Carrie, this dress can be worn with a standard bra. It may not seem like it from the model photo, but we've tested it on different body types and a standard bra works!
EvaApril 11, 2012
Hi Carrie, I did wear a bra and it was fine... the cutout does not go up as high as on the model so it covers the back strap :)
NicoleApril 11, 2012
Is the color of the dress more blue in person? It looks like two different colors in the model vs. customer photos.

Hi Nicole, this dress is purple in person.
