This was a beautiful dress and extremely well made. Loved it.

I order a size 8 and needed to go down a size.

Runs small

The dress is heavy weight and the lace is not delicate so I didn't have to be super careful with it. The zipper was difficult to maneuver and I had to have my hubby zip and unzip me. It was also a bit tight around my rib cage and waist, especially when I tried to sit down. Definitely can not foresee myself wearing this out for dinner. It's a well-made dress and I would love to rent it in a larger size next time.

awesome, even at my height!

i'm typically btwn 2 and 4, 4 worked out well, v comfy. the longest part in the front was around my shins so def longer than on the model, which was expected at my height. nothing high heels cldnt fix. the details on the dress are stunning. the black is an overlay and there is a built in slip. the top portion of the slip is a bit thicker so no bra is needed. it's also cut v deep so i don't even think a strapless wld work, unless it was a v v deep one. the overlay makes the dress look much more demure despite the deep V. i wld actually be comfortable wearing this to a fancy work event. highly highly recommend!

Perfect!

Countless compliments. Fits small in bust/ribs so larger chests should order up. Mine was fine in bust as I'm smaller on top. Looks amazing in person!!!

RTR Team Review

Obsessed is an understatement! This Acler dress is perfect for any wedding or evening event. However, it does run rather small. I typically go back and forth between sizes 2 and 4 but even the 4 was a bit snug on me. Being there is no stretch in the fabric and an underneath fitted slip, curvier women should consider sizing up twice for their primary size. There is a cinched belt throughout the midsection with see through detailing, allowing for a much fitted fit at the waist and rather fitted at the hips. At 5’5 this style hit me at knee to tea length. Pair with black heels and accessories!

WANT TO LIVE IN THIS DRESS!!

Completely true to size! Love love loved this dress. Very unique, compliments all night at my company's holiday party. I'm 5'10", 165 lbs, 36D and athletic build. Fit wonderfully and very comfortable, didn't need to wear a bra and everything held into place. Felt extremely chic and confident, ecstatic with my first RTR experience and definitely will be a loyal renter!

So fun! Very well made. The lining is part of the dress and makes the whole thing really awesome.

A bit big in the bust, I'm a 34D, but other wise it fit fine.

Classy LBD with an edgy twist!

I wore this dress to our annual "Klassy" girl's Christmas dinner. It was fitted so I didn't need to wear a bra, which is always a plus, yet very comfortable! The lace does cover up even though the nude lining cuts low in the cleavage. My girlfriends definitely called out my heaving bosom but because of the lace overlay, I didn't feel overexposed. I felt very classy in it and at the same time, the hem and lace detailing added an extra edge to the look. I wish I could have kept it, definitely an LBD I'd love to keep on rotation in my own closet.

Beautiful dress. My favorite RTR so far. I'm 5'1 so I was concerned about the fit, but it worked. Very striking dress. I highly recommend it.

Comfortable and classy!

I loved this dress! Very comfortable and laid perfectly showing just the right angles of my legs. The material underneath is a nude color and I decided to wear black shoes with earrings for accessories. Would highly recommend this as it fit to size and had neat details. I would rent this again!

Wore this to my film premiere!

I got so many compliments on this dress!!! As a stylist and producer- I wanted to look chic and edgy for our premiere. This dress fit the bill! I didn't need to wear a bra with it- which was great. I even posed for some hilarious shots in the hotel's new basement speakeasy. The dress exudes confidence and I need it in my closet! Absolutely perfect.

Favorite rental so far

Wore to rehearsal dinner for a wedding i was in. Got so many compliments it was so stunning and different. Was able to wear the 4 comfortably without a bra but it was a little tight around the waist when sitting. Wish i could have kept it!

dress was a very different take on an LBD

I had two sizes 6 and 8. the 6 fit better but couldn't zipper it up. I had help, but I think we were afraid of breaking the zipper. the 8 was a little loose on top, but I could zipper it myself. I loved the dress, but the fabric was way heavier than I expected. I also think you should be on the taller side to wear this style. I didn't care for how much it covered my legs. I'm 5'4", if the dress was a little shorter I would of liked it a little more.

I LOVED this dress for my work gala! It fit well, and I received so many compliments on it.

I have a small build, but my waist is not tiny. (My ribs almost connect to the top of my hips--no hour-glass figure over here.) The waist is the only part that fit slightly tighter than I wanted. I didn't wear a bra with this dress because it had a nude liner, but I was a little concerned about side-boob visibility in the middle. My friends told me it looked fine, and I didn't feel exposed throughout the night. I do think medium-size boobs are helpful to fill out the top. (I'm 5'5", 125 lbs, 34Bish, and typically size 2-4/small.)

One of my best friends weddings! Wonderful night.

Dress was roomy enough to dance, eat, and move around. Everyone loved it (including myself)! Note of caution if you have a larger bust, you may have issues with the sides of this dress. I can't update profile so I will note I'm 5'1 for length reference.

Love this dress!!!!

Absolutely loved this dress. Got tons of compliments too! I usually wear a 4, but ordered the 4 and 6, as reviews said that it ran very small. The 4 fit perfectly, so I don't think it runs as small as others have said. It was snug in the chest but I would expect that. For reference I am 5'6, 133, 34D/DD.

This dress was beautiful; high quality and unique.

The detail on this dress is fabulous. A nice, heavy material which feels light due to the lace stitching. The most attractive part of the dress is the scalloping at the shoulders and neckline. I received not short of 10 compliments from a slew of different folks. It is classy and trendy. As far as fit goes, it ended up sizing up to the 6 as the 4 felt tight around my rib cage. The 6 was a bit loose, but that is better than tight! I am long waisted, so, admittedly, the waist of the dress hit me at the widest part of my ribcage. Keep it in mind when ordering your size. I am 5'9" and about 135 with an athletic build. In the right climate, you could pull this dress off year round. Wore it with funky nude colored heels.... could do black or gold as well

very stylish!

i've worn a 4 in this designer before and it fit well, but i found the 4 in this style to be a touch tight. still wearable, but not as much room for dinner. there is no give at the waist, but i have a larger waist so that might be why it's tighter. the v in the front is very deep, but it's not noticeable because of the black overlay, that being said, if someone were to stare at your chest it will become obvious they're staring at cleavage, but it isn't that obv. the longest part reached my shin, but it still looked great with heels. this dress is so trendy and flattering. highly highly recommend!

Awesome dress! Sophisticated yet sexy and great for afternoon/evening event. Very well made.

Fit like a glove. I did not go up a size, but I have a small rib cage so would suggest keeping that in mind when ordering.

You will stand out in any crowd!

OMG!!!! Best RTR yet. Nothing about this dress is me, except the color and yet - this was the most amazing dress ever. It is so comfortable, unique and sexy. I attended a work GALA with over 1000 attendees and towards the end of the night was told by the bartender that I had, by far, the best dress of the night on. I cannot tell you how many compliments I received on this dress. You will never want to take it off it makes you feel "that" good.

Runs small, no give in the fabric

I got this dress for a wedding, it looked so cute online. The dress was not as flattering as I had hoped and runs small. The fabric has zero give, so it was very tight on my rib cage. Went with a different dress, didn't end up wearing it. Go with your true size and one up, you'll probably wear the larger size. Has potential to be really cute!
