The top was loose and the bottom was tight and short. It was unfortunate because it was a cute!
I have a bigger lower half so it made sense that it fit tight and short on the bottom, but even the bigger size (8) was like this. Couldn't even bend over in it. The top was loose as well so overall it was a no go.

Pretty dress and material but the top was a little big. A lot of double sided tape is needed.

Beautiful dress, great color, NEED to go a size up.
Rented this dress for a wedding, and rented my true size. There was no size up available, although I did read that you should order a size up. Unfortunatly, the dress was so tight on my rib cage that I could not wear it. Its a beautiful dress, but runs incredibly small. I am pretty average height (5 ft 7), but this dress was incredibly short on me. I might have worn it with tights out with friends, but for a summer wedding, it was just too short. Its a beautiful dress if you go 1, maybe even 2, sizes up, but be prepared to have a snug fit if you get your size!

Gorgeous, sexy dress!
I loved this dress! As others have mentioned there is ZERO give in the waist so I would order a size up for your backup. The 4 ended up fitting me perfectly and I didn't need fashion tape or anything to keep the top in place but I'm rather busty (34dd) and I could see how someone smaller chested would have a problem with the top not fitting properly since you can't wear a bra. The back is super sexy and the straps have buttons so you can adjust the length. I was so excited when I realized it had pockets! The material is silk and super elegant!

Runs very small
Usually I wear a 10 or a 12 in dresses but this size 12 had absolutely no give in the waist band. I could zip it up but it pinched my back and I had to slide it down lower to make it fit. I decided not to wear the dress because the tightness in the lower back really caused it to be uncomfortably tight. RTR was awesome and gave me a credit though! Definitely order a size up!

Didn't work for me
I didn't end up wearing this dress. As others have stated, the waist is really fitted. I normally wear an 8 and the waist on the 10 barely fit. But it was the top and the straps that were the problem. The top has no way to stay up without tape and the two straps which button into the back waist kept coming unbuttoned. Part of the problem was the holes appeared to have stretched out, but I still wouldn't trust them to hold up the dress.

Flattering and attention grabbing!
This dress photographs great. I love the concept for the dress but I had to have fashion tape to secure the sides. I also got a dress that had been worn about 100 times. there was a foundation stain on the shoulder and the fabric was wearing. So that was kind of weird. But people loved the dress and it wasn't too short at all for a tall girl like me, even in 5 inch heels. I'd wear it again if the dress was new and I got to try on the size 2 which they did not send me that I ordered as my back up.

The back of this dress is spectacular!! Really makes a statement!
Super fun dress, but watch out for the length. I have long legs and this dress was treading the fine line of being too short (especially once I put heels on). Other than that it made a big splash at the semi-formal event I was at. I got compliments all night long!!

Color popped ... very cute sassy back!
So I really wanted to give this dress 5 stars but the top was a little difficult! I have a larger bust and the fashion tape was an absolute must. The top wouldn't have covered anything without it. So minus me freaking out that it may fall off and pressing the fabric back on when people weren't looking .. I LOVED this dress. The color was a perfect navy and the fit was great for a petite hourglass shape. And the reviews were correct, the waist has absolutely no give. But it did fit and my pics turned out great!

Gorgeous dress! Wish RTR had a different size.
This dress is so gorgeous! The color is a deep navy blue with black piping. I'm a pretty solid size 10 but this was way too tight. RTR didn't have a 12 for me to rent also, so I just didn't wear it. Bummer. I will rent again, though, for the 12. It's a short dress, too, just FYI.

beautiful color, risque fit
Wore this for my rehearsal dinner (RTR Bridal First Dance Headband) and felt like a princess the whole night. The color is a stunning deep navy blue, and the fabric is light, silky, and elegant. As every other reviewer has commented, the waistband runs pretty tight. It definitely adds to a flattering silhouette, but keep that in mind if your torso is larger for your size.

I loved this dress on the model but wasn't able to get the correct size- I went with another style.
I thought I needed a 2 but that wasn't available so I ordered a 4 and a 0. The 4 was HUGE and the 0 was actually just a pinch too tight. I think this dress is best for someone very busty, as the 0 was tight on my body but still pretty loose on top. Really pretty on the model but would probably have needed a ton of fashion tape to keep it in place

Very pretty navy color
I rented this in a 4 and the 6 six was not available. The middle is cut very tight and it was not very comfortable to wear. The dress was a gorgeous color and the back cutout was also pretty. I recommend using double sided tape to keep the dress up though. Definitely size up!

I was unable to wear this dress due to poor fit
The band across the ribs is too tight and then bust area is too loose. I tried this dress on in size 6, 8, and 10. This dress will not fit most figures.

Definitely use the tape that RTR sends with the dress. It helps the strap and side by bust stay up. Otherwise I would have slipped out of the dress all night.

I wore this for a rehearsal dinner.
I loved the color of this dress, but had a really hard time with the fit. I used double-sided tape to keep the sides of the dress against my small chest, and was worried about it coming undone all night. I definitely think this dress would be a better fit for someone who does not wear an A cup, because you will have something to support it. I also agree that the waistband doesn't have any stretch- after dinner and a couple of drinks it felt tight which is unusual for me. I received a lot of compliments on the overall look, but don't recommend for someone with a small frame.

I did not like this dress. The material was silky, but it did not fall beautifully. It sort of looked like a bag at the bottom.

I LOVED this dress!
I loved this dress! The color and material were really flattering. The only issue for me personally, was there was no give AT ALL in the waist band. The waist on the dress was a little higher than my actual waist so it was tight on my ribs, even the larger size. Besides that it was great.

Wasn't a fairy tale for me!
I didn't end up wearing this dress because it was just too big! This dress DEFINITELY requires fashion tape and a sticky bra. Once I had those, I managed to make the dress fit, but I was too worried about the tape holding up during the night. Beautiful material, however, if you can make it work!

Beautiful dress but very tight around waist.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to wear the dress as I only received one size - 0 - and it was extremely tight around the waist when I put it on. The waist band has no give either. Otherwise, it is an absolutely beautiful dress.

Pretty but wasn't for me
I was super excited to receive this dress and when I tried it on the top of the dress was too loose to wear. Fashion tape did not help for me. Unfortunately if your small chested this may not be the dress for you.

Simple but a little different in the back.
I was initially afraid the dress wouldn't fit because of all the reviews saying the fit was inconsistent (especially because people said it was large in the bust, and I'm quite small-chested), but the stylist I talked to assured me that she thought this would be a good choice, and she was right! I ended up wearing it without a bra, and needed just a bit of fashion tape to ensure that there wouldn't be a wardrobe malfunction while dancing, but overall the dress fit great, looked great, and the fabric was so, so soft.

Great With Sticky Tape!
This dress was gorgeous and I got a lot of compliments on it, but I wasn't sold on it when I first tried it on. The waistband on my normal size fit me perfectly, but I'm flat-chested so it was pretty big around my boobs. You can't really wear a bra because of the back, so I was worried about it. Thank goodness for sticky tape, which prevented any unfortunate nip slips!

It was a very nice dress and would have worked for the Black Tie Optional wedding.
Unfortunately, while the rib cage and shoulder straps fit, the chest area was too large for me. It would have taken some very strong double stick tape to keep it from puckering out at the side and some pinning even. This dress would be good for someone who has small waist but larger boobs.

Beautiful dress!
I loved the dress, it fit a little small in the "waist" - the ribbon waist fell around my rib cage and it was a little uncomfortable. I don't have a long torso, so I'm unsure why it fit oddly. Overall good, just would have preferred to know that.

Super easy! Stress free
Loved the service but the dress just did not fit me. I'm pretty tall and it was wayyy too short. I also have small bust so the top part was really loose in the size that fit me in the waist. Regardless I could have never worn it because it was much too short

Husband's friends told him that this wife was "smoking hot".
I am a Mom of two. A three year old and at the time a 10 month old, I never thought I would get the attention I got in my twenties. Babies have done things to my body that there is no coming back from. My husband was the best man in his childhood friends' wedding in August. This dress prompted numerous comments from the other men in the wedding telling my husband that his wife is a "smoke show". This dress is very flattering, classy coming at you and sexy walking away. The band for the empire waist fits quite snugly around the rib cage just under the bust and the skirt flows to about four inches above the knee. Perfect length for the hot August weather in VT. You will need garment tape to secure the chest on the strapless side. The double band strap across the back is very secure and adjustable with three buttons. Classy, unique and sexy. Accessorized with Kenneth Jay Lane Regal Affair Ring and Anton Heunis Budding Blue Cluster Earring.
