Material felt a little cheap.
Dress was a little short and skirt was very crinkled. Looked cute though.

It's Navy, not Black...
LOVE! I'm sure I overlooked the actual color in the listing. I just assumed it was black! No, it's navy. Still gorgeous as can be. I suggest a tiny waist and long legs for this piece! It's stunning. Sexy AND elegant. If it were in fact black this would have been my #1 choice for my event. It's okay to show some leg from time to time.

Wondering if this dress is appropriate for a wedding in 2 weeks in Virginia Beach?

The best dress I've ever worn.
But seriously, I've rented from here not a few times and this is by far the dress that I have loved the most. It is just plain beautiful. I was originally planning on trying the sleeveless version of this--but I think I love this one way more. The silhouette it just magically creates is awesome, it's so flattering! And the tutu part is surprisingly comfortable and not at all as poofy as one would expect. The only issues I can find are that the top may not want to close if you have a bigger chest/shoulders and it is surprisingly short--I'm only 5'2" and I would never bend over in this dress (but maybe that's just the tutu effect). I rented this as a free in-home trial ("bring the showroom to you") and I wish I had had somewhere to wear it--as it was I just wore it around my house as long as I could. I will definitely be renting this again--or buying it if I ever make that kind of money!

Loved loved loved this dress. So fun for a girls night!
The dress fit great. It is short, but flirty short. I received so many compliments on it. One thing though - I thought the dress was black. It's actually navy blue. Great dress!!!!
AlisaDecember 28, 2013
Do you have a picture? I'm 5' 10" as well and really worried about the length being appropriate for a wedding I'm reading in. I normally wear an 8 or 10 so it may be longer than your 6 but I don't see anyone else our height who has rented this. Thanks!

Flattering party dress!
I am absolutely obsessed with this dress! I wore it to a charity benefit and got compliment after compliment. It is short and flirty, but the 3/4 sleeve lace still gives it a sophisticated feel! Great for curvier ladies due to the full skirt, but keep in mind that this dress is MINI. Probably best for ladies under 5'8". Otherwise, very easy and extremely flattering - I definitely did not want to send this dress back!!

This is such a beautiful dress. It was perfect for the fancy wedding I wore it to.
The navy lace is beautiful. It was very comfortable and looked great with nude/gold heels. I received complements the entire night. It is a little short but not too bad. I would highly recommend this dress. It is so gorgeous.
MeganJuly 18, 2013
You look great! Do you think this dress is too fancy for an outdoor more rustic wedding?
SaraAugust 22, 2013
Did you have any issues with the length? I want to rent it, but I'm 5'9" and I'm worried it's going to be too short.

This dress was great! Wish it was a little cheaper, but the dress was worth it.
loved the navy color. But warning it is VERY SHORT; no bending! the "v" in the back is nice and not too short - it was at just above the bra clasp. Very flattering and easy to wear.

so flattering!
I wore this for a junior prom and loved it! It is actually navy, not black, but I preferred it that way! I rented a 4 and a 6 and actually could've gotten the second size a 2. The 4 fit well, but did run a tad big.

Gorgeous dress, so flattering!
I wore this dress for the annual benefit gala of the non-profit I work for. It was perfect for the occasion: elegant but young and fresh too. I can wear an 8 or 10 on other dresses, but the 8 of this fit me perfectly. I'm short and I thought the skirt was the perfect length to keep the dress flirty. I'm not very curvaceous but the cut of the dress was flattering and it gave the hint of some curves :) The only con is that the lace up top looked worn and was starting to come undone- but only if you looked really closely. Can't recommend this dress enough, specially for girls around my size- do it! You'll look gorgeous :)

AMAZING dress. It made Joan Rivers (queen of fashion) stop, talk to me and put me on her twitter.
Great dress. It was very flattering, especially that is had a playful flare to it. The color of the dress is a beautiful royal blue. The only complaint is not to pull the slip down to far, because it will show and make the dress look sloppy.

Perfect afterparty dress
i wore this for the after party at our wedding. When I walked out everyone loved it! The longer sleeves off-set the shortness of the dress. I must've lost some weight because I'm pretty sure I'm a size 4, however the 2 fit perfectly. The only issue was the length of the dress. Because it poofs out you cannot bend over or shake your hips too quickly without revealing all. It's a very flattering dress and everyone was asking who made it and where it was from.

I loved loved loved this dress! However I should have ordered a size 4!
It runs small. The dress is super short, which I loved since I am petite, but was way too tight for my bust. Definitely order up a size, perhaps two. Would try to order it again for another future event.

I wore this dress for my bachelorette party in AC and got lots of compliments! Great fit all over and it's short but not too short. No complaints at all! Can't wait to rent from RTR again.

amazing dress
The dress fit perfectly and was so easy to wear. It was a little short, so I wore short yoga shorts underneath the dress because I knew I would be dancing a lot at the wedding. I didn't realize the dress was navy, not black until it arrived - which was perfectly fine! I received many compliments on the dress and definitely recommend it! It was very fun to wear!

Amazing Dress!
I rented this dress for a special date. The blue lace on top is very soft and the 'fluffy' material on bottom makes it a really fun dress to wear. The front of the dress is high but the low back and short length keeps it from being too conservative. Overall the cut of the dress is very flattering. I will definitely rent dresses from this designer again.

FAVORITE RENTAL EVER
I rent all the time and this was my favorite rental yet! Nevermind the fact that RTR overnighted it to me for Saturday delivery (SO AMAZING), this dress is fabulous. I have a bigger midsection and this dress was very flattering. I was surprised to find that it was NAVY because it appeared black to me online. Also, tall girls beware. I'm semi-short and this was definitely a mini. It hit my upper thigh and was almost too short for a wedding, but actually was just right (if that makes sense). Wearing tights would solve this problem. I LOVE THIS DRESS!!!

This dress fit amazing! It was a little on the shorter side so I had to be careful when dancing but other than that it was great. I received so many compliments. I would rent this again in a heartbeat.

The length was great for my petite frame. Appropriate for a work party. Lots of compliments.
Stretchy material. Watch out for the slip that can hang lower. You can start to see some of the wear on the dress. Very comfy.

LOVED this dress!
Loved this rental - got many compliments throughout the night. Runs sliiiiightly on the small side. I'm a true zero and could have worn the zero if it was the only option but it was a little tighter in the arms than I would want. I couldn't easy raise my hands over my head in the zero, but could in the the size two {an important element of my dance moves...}. It's short but not unmanageable - the tulle and layers underneath do a great job keeping the dress down. I never worried about too much exposure even after hours on the dance floor. And yes, everyone else is correct - the dress is blue not black. And it totally looks amazing so don't let the color stop you. Loved this rental and would rent again for any cocktail dress occassion.

Fit was perfect. Dress was getting a little worn, but no one noticed. Received tons of complements. I rented it for a wedding in Chicago and on the street I saw another Nah Khanh dress on a girl, but it was the one with short sleeves. Good taste.. Fortunately she was not at the same event. Lol

Ballerina + LBD
I love love love this dress! I've been eyeing this dress for a while and I used the summer promo to rent the dress for a wedding. I wore the size 2 dress because it was more comfortable, and I wore the same accessories as the model did in the picture. It was really comfy (not itchy), but it was a little short like the other reviewers mentioned. Also, the dress is navy, not black. I received several compliments, and the only negative comment I have was that the tulle layer had several snags and bunched together on my right side. I don't think anyone noticed it, but I wish dress was in better quality. Other than that, I'd definitely wear this dress to another event.

This dress was perfect! It is fun and flirty
Although it is short, I just wore cute lace bloomers under just in case to avoid a Britney Spears moment. I wore this the VMA's and everyone loved it! I was on the red carpet and so many people complimented me on it. It was flirty and sexy but very comfortable. If you like her legs this is a great dress! It is nice and romantic too.

Had to return it the day I received it!
Unfortunately I had to send this dress back the day I got it. I ordered a size 2, and 0. The 2 fit perfect on top, but if I were to bend over the slightest bit, or lift my arms to dance, you could see everything. Not even boy shorts would have helped. If you are the least bit concerned about the length, don't rent this dress.

Beautiful and so fun!
This dress is every girl's dream! So fun, flirty, and classy. I wore this to a friend's wedding and I felt like a million bucks. I received compliments all day and night... if I could buy this dress, I would! It seems to run a bit small - I'm normally a 4, so I ordered the 4 and the 6. The 6 was more comfortable since the dress doesn't stretch much. The navy lace was a lovely alternative to black, which I think would have been too harsh of a color for the daytime wedding I attended. Nude pumps and pink lips really complimented this dress well. I also LOVED the tulle skirt because it makes the dress more youthful and girly. All round this was an amazing dress!! Thank you RTR!

Homecoming Perfection!
Rented this dress as the backup dress and once she tried it on knew it was the one. So flattering and a beautiful navy color. Stands out from all the black. It's perfect for so many occasions. Got a million compliments. Wore a nude/blush pink shoe with rose gold studs and rose gold ring and earrings. Comfortable all night long.

I ordered a size smaller than I normally wear, but I was able to zip it completely and it fit like a glove! I am 5'2" and it felt a little short even on me, so I caution you to be weary of this when dancing! :) Great dress! I recommend it and would love to rent it again!

Flattering and Girly
This dress is beautiful and flattering. Fun to wear, feels special and girly. HOWEVER, RTR needs to think about retiring or attempting to repair dresses that have been worn too many times. I understand that I am renting a used dress, but both sizes of this dress that I got had SEVERAL holes in the lace. I know lace is a tough material to keep in great shape but the lace where it was torn in some places really stuck out.... I'm sure it wasn't too noticeable but it bothered me. It looks like quite a few bracelets, handbags, etc have gotten stuck and torn it. I also think the dress runs a tiny bit small--especially in the chest--but I was still able to wear my normal size (just without a bra).

You raise such a good point. Do you know how often RTR replaces dresses that get so much wear? I've never asked, but this dress has been rented alot based on the numbers here.

Gorgeous Lace Dress
I was scared it was going to be super short, but it was actually a lot longer on me than I was expecting. It didn't flare out at the bottom as pretty as the girl in the picture but the top was beautiful. It photographed well and I got lots of compliments all night!

When I saw this dress on RTR I knew I had to wear it and it was EVERYTHING I wanted it to be & more!
I am usually a 6 and the 6 fit great, but I wanted to wear a bra with it. The (heavily padded) bra caused the zipper to buckle a little so I decided to just wear the 8. From the moment that I put the dress on, I felt like a million bucks and just about everyone that I saw complimented me on the dress :) The ONLY negative about this dress is that I had to take it off at the end of the night and give it back. I apologize for the darkness of the picture, the lighting at the event was causing every picture to be really dark. I tried to filter it and make it a little lighter. The coloring is a little off here, but the dress is definitely navy with nude underneath. It is romantic and girly and fabulous!

If you like attention, you will love this dress!
This dress is perfection! I wore it to the Navy Ball and it was the perfect combination of classy and sexy. Initially I was nervous to order it because of my height but I decided to take my chances and I'm so glad I did. Keep in mind, it is very short, but with the top of the dress being conservative the length really is perfect. I ordered a 6 and an 8 because I was nervous about the length, but I really could have just worn a 4 because the 6 was a tad big. I can't recommend this dress enough, whether tall or short, if you are considreing this dress please get it! You will be so glad you did. Oh, and brace yourself to be stopped by strangers all night, the compliments will be endless!
