Sleek, sexy & fun!
Great dress. Low cleavage...tape will be needed, however the color is fabulous and dress is jersey / slinky huffing and draping in all he right places.

Vegas or Miami yes please!
This dress is very very showy... Get a cute bra and be prepared to show it off as well as your booty... Underwear is very hard to wear with this one. The material is terrific and lays on your curves very nicely but you can see any kind of underwear line, I tried em' all but it's too short to go sans... You'll get over the lines. No one notices because they're too busy checking out your other assets. I would only recommend this dress for Vegas or Miami it's a hot number.

Comfy, Gorgeous, Fun
Two pieces of fashion tape to keep the girls in place. Dress was super fun and breathable for a night of dancing. Returning the dress while carless in Vegas was kind of a headache (hotels charge a handling fee for sending it off even though shipping is prepaid), but the dress was amazing.

Sexy!
Really fun, sexy dress that I wore to my senior sorority formal. If you have bigger hips/butt that I would size up considering the dress is tight on the bottom. Also, fashion tape and nu-bra were both definitely needed- worked great when I used these, otherwise the dress is too revealing for another type of bra. Really loved wearing this dress- its a sexy, party dress so don't try to wear it to anything super formal or work-related. Would rent again!

This dress looks so cute on the model, but I am curvy and it just looked inappropriate. This is a fabulous pic for a night out on the town and if you have a straighter body type.

Party Ready
I rented this dress for a night out in Vegas. While it is very sexy, it was a very high maintenance dress - you need special bra and also need to tape yourself in as the top runs very, very loose. Overall I enjoyed wearing it and thought the color was beautiful; however, just be prepared that it won't arrive ready to wear.

Not what I expected! EEK!
The sides of this dress were essentially non existent. It was my birthday bash, and since I had done RTR before, I didn't even think to try the dress on before heading to our hotel to get ready. And I mean, it was a wrap dress..... what could go wrong?!? I was pretty dismayed when the fabric was thin and the dress was so low cut on the sides, I couldn't wear either size. We had to stop at a store downtown and I had to run in and buy another dress! Oh well.

The side cut outs of the dress went basically to my waist! Much more of a sexier dress than pictured and the fit seemed quite small to me.

Attention getter! Great for Vegas!
The top part of this dress was A LOT more revealing then the photo on the model reveals. I had to use a ton of tape to keep this dress in place. I got the S in a back up size, and even though the skirt was a bit tight in the XS, the S top was more difficult to drape correctly. You can not wear a bra with this dress. I used adhesive petals as the fabric is pretty thin. I almost didn't wear it, but I figured I was in Vegas so I might as well go all out!

Love the look but hard to wear
I wore this dress in Vegas (the only place you can get away with it!) It's cut to there! I had read the reviews and it only stayed on by the magic of fashion tape which took me a while to get right. I had to make adjustments all night. I was able to get some spanx skinny britches under there because the material of the dress is so thin but it required lots of tugging and folding so I don't recommend it if you have cellulite. Yes everybody stared at me and I loved it!

Beautiful color but not the right vibe for a wedding
This dress was fun and flirty - and a great color! - but it wasn't as fitted as the picture and showed a lot of skin. This was my backup dress so I didn't end up wearing it, but I could certainly imagine it with some double sided tape for a girls night out or bachelorette.

Skipped every line I walked up to in Vegas :-)
Ohhhh I LOVE THIS DRESS! It is not for the shy, but I have been obsessing over renting it for awhile. My bachelorette/birthday in Vegas seemed like the perfect time. It was SO comfortable and fun. The small isn't available to rent anymore, and I wish it had been, because the XS was a little too tight in the bottom, and the M was pretty loose in the chest. But nothing that a little double-sided tape doesn't fix! I felt hot hot hot! (Also pictured: me trying on the dress in TJ Maxx! This way you get an idea of what the side looks like. :-) I almost bought it, but they, too only had the Medium)

Pretty dress, fun color and very sexy!
A litte big up top, I ordered the small for a back-up and it wasnt available so I only had M to choose from. I do not have much up top, so it was very revealing.

Sexy but major side boob!
I'm a size 10 and the large was definitely snug around the waist and hips. It made undergarments tricky because you should see everything. I was prepared for the low cut in the front, but should have paid more attention to the reviews to know about the major reveal on the sides. Used almost an entire roll of double stick tape!

Bachelorette Party Dress
I wore this dress out for my bachelorette and loved it. It's definitely low (and a bit open on the sides), but it hangs extremely well, so I was able to wear it without double-sided tape when I forgot to pack it and didn't have any mishaps!

LOVED the dress. Perfectly tight in all the right places!
The color was a nice bright red and it fit nice and tight throughout the bottom but a little loose on the top. Would definitely wear it again. Since it cut very deep in the front I have to wear stickies incase.

Sexy hot
Loved the dip in the back and on the sides. Exposed just enough skin. I didn't like the tie though, it was too long and hung in an unflattering way in my opinion so I tied it around and my waist a couple times and tied a smaller bow in the back and it was super cute. Wish I owned this one.

Wore this in Vegas for girls weekend. My friends loved this dress! I received so many compliments!
I read the reviews, so I was prepared for the low cut. This dress is pretty revealing. It cuts low on the sides and the front. Tape is a must in the dress!! Without it, I wouldn't have felt comfortable in it. It was a great dress to dance in all night! I loved it!

All eyes will be on you in this dress
I am in love with this dress! I wore it in Vegas, which is probably one of the only places where it is appropriate because it is VERY revealing. There is quite a bit of sideboob exposed, so use double-sided tape to avoid a wardrobe malfunction. This dress will work well on more flat-chested women. The bottom part fits a little bit tighter than the top, so if you have bigger hips, I would size up.

Fun Dress, but hard to wear
This is a really great dress, but as others have mentioned, it's completely open on both sides and low in the front. If you don't need to do much, it's workable. But I was in Vegas and it was cold so everytime we went outside and I had to put a coat on, we had to make sure I wasn't exposing myself. And unless you are extremely flat-chested, it would be impossible to dance in this dress. So, for those reasons, I would not rent it again, although I loved it just standing there. :)

Too revealing
I ordered this for Vegas and this dress was STILL too revealing, as you're unable to wear a bra or underwear without it showing (it's completely open on the sides). Fashion tape would help, but overall it was a little too much of a good thing. I love RTR, but this was a definite disappointment.

Not appropriate for a company holiday party
I was very disappointed with the dress. The model makes it look very classy and conservative but when I tried it on, it was way too inappropriate in every way possible. The dress is very open. I had to pin the sides, pin the cleavage area (and I have barely B cups!), and tape the straps from falling off my shoulders. I had no other option so had to wear it to the holiday party, but I would only suggest a dress like this for a Vegas or Miami night out.....

Got in for free :)
I knew going into it that this dress, well, didn't have much to it. I wore it to a party in AC for my 21st birthday, because of my brand new ID the bouncer at the club we wanted to go to gave me a really hard time getting in and we missed the time for free admission but were told to speak with some guy. Found the guy, he looked me up and down and not only let me in for free but we got in through the VIP entrance :). I got the XS and the S, the XS fit, but for some reason the back straps seemed a lot thinner on the XS than the S so I ended up going with the S to add a few inches of fabric for a little more comfortable fit.

Fun color for the Summer!
This dress is very big on the top regardless of size and very tight on the bottom. The color is stunning and it is very flattering. My only issue with the dress is that it is TOTALLY open on the sides. I had to use fashion tape to make sure everything was kept in place, which worked for me because I am a small B cup (larger chests might have trouble with this dress). I received many compliments on the dress, and loved wearing it. Its a statement dress! Also, there are slits on both sides of the bottom (you can't see on the model)

I have never felt sexier.
This dress is called "Try Not To Stare" for a reason. It definitely draws attention in a sexy yet classy way. I felt like a million bucks in this dress. It's a little revealing, but in all the right places. I wore a size large because of my booty, but the large was huuuuge in the top. I had to use a lot of reinforcements/tape! I had to tape my boobs so I had a bit of cleavage and shape, and I used fashion tape to secure the dress, but the flow and draping of the dress is to die for!!

I rented this for a school formal. I was really excited about the color and what looked like a casual fit. I ended up not being able to wear the dress at all because it was so baggy in the chest area. It came down in the armpit area way too far and showed off far too much in the chest area, making it impossible to even wear anything underneath.

It's cute and the color is fantastic, but...
Didn't actually wear this dress...even with dress tape the sides were too exposed to wear it with the bra I had. (was on vacation) Overall this dress is a nice idea, but not practical for me.

Not much of a dress!
I rented this for tropical vacation. I didn't try it on before I left. When I put it on, it is basically a very fitted skirt with two pieces of fabric draped on the top. It is ALL open on sides and deep V (down to my belly button) on top. My bust is wayyy to small to hold something like this up! If I could've planned ahead I would have brought a black tube top or something to wear underneath. Ended up putting on the only thing I had under it so I could wear it (white cami). I didn't like the way it looked at all. The bottom was too small on me and top was huge. I was constantly adjusting. For someone with large, perky breasts and lots of fashion tape, this dress may work. Also I guess a long torso would also help. I found that the dress material was VERY thin and the outline of the fashion tape could be seen through it. Won't be renting this one again.

I ended up having to send this dress back because it just didn't fit right.
There was too much fabric in certain places like the front skirt, but not enough in other places. It is impossible to wear a bra and you would definitely need some sort of tape to make sure the sides and neckline do not open up and reveal everything. Also, the sash/bow was WAY too long.
