The back is absolutely beautiful! I received so many compliments!
I wore a 4L and I am 5'7". I wore about 4" heels and it was the perfect length. People kept on complimenting on how beautiful this dress was, and I didn't want to return it! Great designer, I love DVF.

Beautiful dress!
This dress looked great and it was super comfortable to wear. Definitely works well for small busts! I think the 4R was a little large on me so the 2R would have been perfect. Even though it was a bit loose I did not feel like I was on the verge of a wardrobe malfunction. This dress was a little bit longer than other R length dresses that i have rented.

I wore this dress for a New Year's Eve wedding and received many compliments!
The low cut back was dramatic but still wedding appropriate. It would have been impossible to wear a bra with this dress, but I didn't need it with the draping. It's a very fluid fabric, so I wore Yummie Tummie girl shorts for a smooth look. Even with 4 inch heels, it was still a bit long in the back, but the slit made it easy to walk in.

Didn't want to send it back!
I've done several rentals with RTR but this is my favorite so far! People kept commenting on how great the dress was. It's so classy yet sexy...and comfortable too! The draping on the front is really nice too. I rented both the 2R and the 0L (the 0R wasn't available) but the 2R fit my pear shape better. It was a tad roomy on top so I wore a NuBra and secured both sides of the dress with fashion tape. The length was perfect with my 4.75 inch heels. I accessorized it with chandelier earrings and a rhinestone bracelet. Also, I can't say enough about RTR Customer Service: the day of my rental I was accidentally shipped the wrong dresses. After I called and explained the situation I was overnighted the correct dresses right to my hotel since I was leaving the following day for my event.

Amazing Dress! Wanted to own it!
I actually rented this dress as a backup for a recent wedding we attending. Turns out the dress I originally planned to wear just paled in comparison to how gorgeous this one was. I received tons of compliments all night and the open back is sexy and elegant! The dress isn't too tight, the fabric feel lux, and drapes in all the right places. However, you will deifntely need to wear a nu-bra because of the open back.

It was fine.
It's weird and frumpy in the front. I pinned the loose fabric back to make it fall a little nicer on me. I am a true hourglass shape had a little extra meat on my bones at the time so it just wasn't terribly flattering on me, but of course the back is super sexy! I'd recommend this one to straight and narrow girls, the way the dress falls is meant for them for sure!

Not petite
I ordered this in 2P (I'm 5'2) and really liked it, but it was actually longer than the back-up dress I ordered in regular length - it is very misleading to call this petite!

Stunning!
I loved this dress! The cut made me look sleek and gave me curves that I do not have. The color was great for my pale skin but sadly I was not able to wear it. The event I was going to was a bit on the conservative side and the back of this dress while not risque at all, would have been for this event. I will rent this dress again if another formal event comes up.

GORGEOUS dress!
This dress is so effortlessly beautiful. The color was gorgeous and very flattering next to my fair skin and red hair. Have to go braless or use a sticky bra, which I was not used to, but other than that it was a simply gorgeous dress.
