Very sleek LBD
Wore this for my birthday dinner. Just went out with my parents and husband so I didn't need anything to dressy but I still wanted to feel pretty and this was perfect.

Great dress with an even better back!
I usually wear an 8, and this fit me perfectly. The material is a little thicker, nice for cold nights, but has stretch to it. Like a lot of other girls said, it hugs you in all the right places. I wore a regular bra, with the straps tucked so they weren't visible. Just remember that you should bring a sweater or something if it's cold. I didn't and I was freezing when I stepped outside (because of the open back). This dress wasn't my first choice, but it worked out great. Awesome dress, definitely worth the rental.

Sexy!
Amazinggg dress, unlike any other. Fit was a little weird with the back being so open and there were seams running all across the body of the dress. Material was heavier than o expected, but luckily it was a cool night. Definitely size up!

Sexy yet sophisticated date night dress
I loved this dress and am tempted to buy it. It's a true size 0. It's thick enough that even though most bras won't fit under the straps the material hides what it should hide.

The back of this dress is a showstopper!
This dress is gorgeous, I got so many compliments! The thicker material made it perfect for fall. I wore this dress to an awards show in Nashville with all the big name artists and I felt like a million bucks! Unfortunately this dress wasn't available in a size 6 which I think would've been perfect. It was a little big in the back and the waist but the 4 was too snug for me to feel comfortable in all night.

Couldn't wear it.
Normally I can wear either a 10 or 12 depending on the dress and so I took a chance ordering this in an 8 (it was the only size option available and because of time constraints I had limited options). I couldn't even get the dress on to really gauge anything about the garment. I can say that the material is thick which was nice but it wasn't something that had a whole lot of give...at least to someone trying to put it on that is clearly too big. :-P So if you are thinking of gambling with a smaller size, don't do it with this dress. Had it fit I think it would have been nice, hence the 3 stars.

This dress was great. But, I did not wear it.
This dress was really pretty. However, I did not wear it. The two sizes I got were too small. Which actually made the cut outs go a little too far to the front. For me at least. But, the customer service was amazing! It was a Saturday wedding. I received the dresses on Friday around 3:00. Noticing they did not fit, I got on the phone right away. RTR phone lines were down so I jumped online. A customer service rep found me a dress within 20 minutes and it showed up on my door step the next morning at 9:00! I live in FL and could not believe how fast it got there. I am forever a RTR customer!

Everyone loved the dress and I had a ton of compliments!
The shoulders were uncomfortably tight, I ended up wearing it as an off-the-shoulder dress all night.

I'm 5'3 and between 105 and 108 pounds...and the size zero was TIGHT. The cut outs prevent wearing spanx so I was sucking in all night...but it was worth it! Great sexy and very chic dress. Loved it.

Anniversary Knockout
I rented this dress for my eight year anniversary with my boyfriend and a great choice if i do say so myself:-) At first I felt a bit self conscious as the cutouts did not seem to hit in quite the right places. I am a slender/athletic build but my ribcage makes certain dresses hit me funny. I lost the self consciousness with one look from by boyfriend...made my first rental from RTR a great decision and hopefully the first of many!

New Year's Eve Rental
The suggestion to order up was appreciated, I tend to wear a size 4 for all the other rentals but this time the 6 fit just right. As far as bras go, I tried both strap and strapless but both showed. Luckily with the heavy fabric of the dress and bra size (34B) I was able to go sans bra and was very comfortable! Received many compliments such as "really classy" and "you should buy that dress, it looks great". I tend to not look back for future rentals, but this one is a cracker and I may just find myself renting this again!

Classic & sexy
Wore this as a winter 'date night' dress with stilettos and swiss-dot-patterned sheer stockings and got loads of compliments! Only observation is that the fabric doesn't have much strectch, so for me the fit in the shoulders/arms was a bit tight while the waist cutouts gapped just a tiny bit.

just enough sexy
this dress is the bomb diggity! honestly, i felt like a supermodel beauty queen. it had just the right amount of sex appeal. the fit was perfect for my body type...straight up top with a booty. i didn't wear a bra and because of the tautness and thickness of the fabric i didn't even think about it for the rest of the night. i got compliments left and right and even dressed it down with a leather jacket for the outdoor ceremony. honestly i did not want to send it back, it is a great dress and i recommend it highly to all the smaller busted ladies out there. flattering, flirty and fierce!

Arrived too late...
I had this dress as a back up to my other one for my birthday occasion and sadly it came too late. It was delayed due to shipping problems? I don't know the exact details but when it arrived I tried it on and it was tight! It looked amazing I just wanted room to breath a little. Such a cute dress and I want to rent it again!

Order a size up!
I'm usually a size 4 or 6 in dresses, but after reading some of the reviews I opted to go with sizes 6 and 8. Ladies, DO NOT BE ASHAMED TO GO UP A SIZE IN THIS DRESS! It looks better if you aren't squeezed into it, plus, the opening in the back can cut you off and make you look like you have back fat even if you don't. I wore the 8 and felt so comfortable and skinny all night...even though I was wearing two sizes larger than I usually do. Contrary to other reviews, there is a little bit of stretch in the dress. I would definitely wear this dress again.

The cut-out details were showstopping.
I was disappointed at how small this dress runs. I think if I'd had a size up, I would have been completely in love with it. Instead, I was self-conscious the whole night. Other than the size issues, the dress is gorgeous and has good construction.

A real stunner coming and going!
The quality of this dress is unsurpassed and I received so many compliments on the amazing cut out back. However, when the other reviews say this dress is tight and there is no give in the fabric, they aren't kidding!!!! I usually wear a 0 or 2 but I squeezed into a 4 with the help of Spanx and hard core cardio for 2 days prior to the event. It was worth it though because it was a night to remember.

I ended up using my other dress. This one was just for back up! The arms were to tight.
This dress would have been great if I could lift my arms up!.. It was too hard to dance with.

I had so much fun in this dress! It was classy AND sassy at the same time.
I ordered the 0 and the 2. This dress is extremely form fitting and I felt much better in the 2. I probably could have worn a bra because of the placement of the strap on the back, but the material was thick enough that I didn't need to. I received many compliments all night long from both men and women.

Showstopping!
My very first RTR dress, I will surely be a returning customer! I should have indeed taken the advice here and rented two sizes up. I rented a 0 and a 2 and liked the 2, but a 2 and 4 would have been better fits. Loved the modest length, so elegant yet bold. The abundant compliments made it worth every penny. Excellent customer service!

I rented a size 8 and it couldn't get the dress over my thighs. I am not fat. This runs too small!
I would not ever rent this dress again. I rented a size 8 and a 10 as a backup size and neither one fit at all. It was very disappointing. The material of this dress isn't stretchy or comfortable at all.

Great Dress for my First Atlantic City experience
This dress is very class and sexy at the same time the open back is such a sexy part of the dress but it was not extremely short and it was very conservative in the front I felt awesome in this dress and would def rent it again

Classy, with a bit of intrigue
Since RTR had a Memorial Day promo, I got this dress for a Friday night date: dinner and "Sleep No More" in NYC. I loved that the dress is quite classy, with a bit of intrigue. The cutouts are just right -- I could wear a regular black bra with it (would have been even better with tape). I am on the curvier side of XS/0 and went up a size, but then couldn't go braless. This dress will not look good if it looks too tight! It was really fun to wear with a mask, but it does ride up a bit running up and down stairs. A dress to make a night just a little more fun.

I loved it, it was the perfect dress for this formal/business occasion.
The fit was slightly small Im glad I got an 8, because I believe the 6 would have been to small. I usually wear between an 8 and a 6. Great Length. I am 5'7 and it came a little above my knees. I loved it!! Very Cute and Trendy!

This isn't your mama's LBD ...
If you're a fan of LBD's, take note: This dress is PERFECT!!! I wore it to my cousin's wedding and felt incredible AND comfortable in it - which can be a hard balance to strike with evening wear. It's extremely classy and elegant from the front, yet super, super sexy from behind. I normally wear a size 6 - so I ordered that AND the 8. I ended up wearing the 8, so when you order your (free) second size, go one step up - just in case. The length is perfect, fabric is AMAZING (hugs you in ALL the right places), and is a real crowd pleaser :) I got tons of compliments all night long and felt like a million bucks! Thanks RTR for making my first experience so memorable!

Stunning fitted dress. Makes a statement.
The fit is snug, which I like but I could not even fit a bra underneath the top. I ended up going braless, which could be an issue for some bigger chested girls. If you have a larger chest the cut on the side is higher up and dangerously close to the bottom of my chest which was compressed and looking for any way out of a tight situation anyways. Thankfully there were no mishaps but I was not moving around that much. If I was dancing and raising my arms up, I am pretty sure I would have given the crowd a free peek at the bottom of my breasts. Still love the dress though.

HOT!
This dress is the perfect combination of sexy and classy. The open back, curve-hugging fit, and shorter skirt make it hot enough to go out on the town in, and the higher neckline and three-quarter length sleeves make you still feel like a lady. It's SO easy to pair with accessories and shoes and is super flattering. The material is thick and warm, so you can even wear it out on colder nights. Plus, you won't need to find a bra that works with the open back, because the material will hold and cover on its own. :) I ordered a 0 and 2, normally wearing a 0. I wore the 2, because the dress runs pretty tight and if it isn't the right fit, the opening in the back will make it look like you have back fat! Ha. Amazing dress, I highly recommend it!

I was way off in the rental. I have a 34D chest and I'm 5ft 10. The dress was so tight across the bust and too short for a corporate function in Las Vegas.

Love it!!!
Usually wear a 2 but i'm glad i read the reviews and ordered the 4. I wore this to my company's holiday party and it was a showstopper. Don't wear this if you don't want all eyes on you. Super sexy. The only con is that it is a very thick material and with the long sleeves i was hot all evening....especially on the dancefloor.

Perfect dress for New Years Eve!
I wore this dress for New Years Eve at a hotel all inclusive event. It was super comfortable and looked fabulous! My boyfriend absolutely loved it ;) The cutouts are perfect - sexy but classy enough that it's not too provocative. I wish I could buy this and wear all the time!!!!
