Loved the dress loved the color and the fit
Loved the dress - wore it to a gala. One thing to be aware of is that the under skirt slides up on you unexpectedly especially if you're wearing spanx or tights. Otherwise loved it.

Cute 'n Comfy
I loved this dress. It was so comfortable. It was snug but not tight. Perfectly hugs your curves. I'm 5'4 so it was a little longer on me than the model (2" below the knee). I wore with a 4" pump. I wore this to a Debutante Tea Party and it was sexy yet appropriate. I received many compliments on the dress. I would definitely rent again.

Just enough classy
Oh man, I got so many compliments on this dress it was comical. As we were taking photos outside, car after car would literally stop, roll down the window, and tell me how much they loved this dress. I'm considering renting this for another wedding in a few weeks, I loved it that much. I think the dress goes really well with blush/light pink accessories if you are into that sort of thing. I accessorized with all rose gold jewelry and a blush-colored purse. As the other reviewers mentioned, the only thing annoying about this dress is the slip underneath the lace overlay, but I used fashion tape to pin the skirt down but still had to adjust a few times during the night. I have a larger butt, so I was a bit nervous about the fit, but it truly fit like a glove. For reference, my measurements are 34-27-39.

Fun, Beautiful color, great fit!
This dress was great. I wore the small because my chest is small so it was less gaping. Although a little tighter on my butt (big butt), it still had room to move. It was super comfortable and although I was a little nervous because I had never worn something that wash mesh with a lot of skin showing, it turned out just right. I received a ton of compliments!

So. Many. Compliments! You must rent this dress
This dress is an absolute knockout. The small fit perfectly. I received compliments from everyone: the waitstaff, the bridesmaids, other guests - even the cashier at the grocery store! I really wish I could have kept this one.

It's a very unique and ornately detailed dress.
My only issue with the dress is that it's not at all the color it appears to be in the photo online. I thought I was getting a vibrant medium and light blue color contrast, and that's not the case. The lining is dark navy blue and part of the lace is black. The lighter part of the dress is less like a baby blue and more of greyish hue. It fits really well and is still a stunning piece, but I feel the color on RTR's site is misleading.

Pretty!
This was my first choice for the Kentucky Derby, but the weather took a turn and I went with an equally beautiful but warmer option. Looked good on though.

Great color, gorgeous dress.
I received SO many compliments on this dress! The cutouts in the stomach made the dress sexy, but the length kept it classy. Perfect mix. I thought based on the reviews that the small would be best (Im normally a size 4), but the medium was perfect. Luckily, RTR sends 2 sizes. Would definitely recommend!

Gorgeous dress!
I rented this dress for a Kentucky Derby party. I rented both the medium and large. I consider myself a solid medium but it was a little too snug so I wore the large. It's very flattering, very comfortable and I received compliments all night long. I wish I owned this dress!

The dress, fabric detail and quality was stunning in person.
This dress runs somewhere in between true to size and small depending on your body type. I wear anywhere between a size 8 and a size 12 depending on the fit of a dress because of my large hips. I ended up wearing the L, and it fit like a glove (There isn't much stretch to the fabric). I have received tons of compliments and I was comfortable all night.

Statement dress
Wore this dress for a wedding. I wanted something bright and attractive without being "over the top". It was a very pretty color and very comfortable. It does run small in the arms, but then again, I don't have the smallest arms either. I am 5'3" and 125# and wore the medium. I was able to wear neutral colored bra and it didn't show thanks to the intricate lace pattern. The biggest downside was the creep of the inner skirt everytime you sit down. Was often worried about showing too much of my bootie and/or thighs. That was the only reason this didn't get 5 stars. I took the advice of another review and paired it with a belt to define my waist a bit more.

I loved wearing this dress, but I wish it came in an extra small. There was a little extra room in the waist area, but over all a gorgeous dress. I got compliments all night!

My new favorite dress!
I typically wear a 4, so I ordered the small with a medium as backup. After reading other reviews and seeing a lot of comments about the lining riding up, I opted for the medium since the slip (which has stretch to it) was a bit looser. It made for more comfortable dancing, eating, and sitting, so I'm glad I sized up. I felt so comfortable in the dress, and I lost track of how many compliments I received on it that night. It is sexy but classy, and it is my favorite dress I've ever worn other than my wedding dress. I would 100% recommend it.

This dress was fantastic!! Fit perfectly, comfortable all night, and tons of compliments! Rent it!!
The see through lace really is see through (but that was a + for me), I have hips and a round butt so the dress was snug but not uncomfortable and I prefer that kind of fit. No bra necessary so another plus! The quality and texture fir so well and was perfect for a warm spring wedding in the sun onto the reception.

Stunning
It was so fun to wear. It fit wonderfully and was so well made. The lace and detailing were superb. The only issue that I had was with the underskirt riding up. I had my friends on patrol all night to ensure that it stayed in place. Would recommend this dress to anyone who enjoys a classy yet sexy look.

Beautiful but probably not great for any event where you are sitting and standing a lot as the liner can ride up unnoticed

Felt like a princess
I had to attend a wedding in Mexico City where weddings are normally pretty fancy. I was not used to picking a formal dress so I opted for a dress that hit below the knee in a color that would pop. Super comfortable all overall! Was super easy to dance the night away and would definitely rent this over again.

Great first RTR experience
I rented this dress for a Gala. It was my first RTR and was such a positive experience. The dress arrived on time. I loved the packaging. So simple to open and return. The dress is a great color and fit. I received many compliments. It runs very very small. I am usually a size 6 in dresses and wore the large. There is one major flaw with the dress - the skirt underneath rolls up. I recommend taping it down.

Gorgeous color!
This dress was perfect for my company holiday party! It was super fun and different, and the sheer panels were still covered up enough to be work party-appropriate. The color is absolutely gorgeous and stood out amongst all the black dresses. The lace is really sturdy and doesn't feel too delicate and it definitely hides bumps and imperfections. Would rent again!

Beautiful color and detail
I got a lot of compliments on this dress, and it is definitely stunning. I ordered a small and medium and wore the small. The small was a little bit too big, and I found myself wishing there was an extra small option. It was also pretty long because I am fairly short.

perfect fit and beautiful color
i wore this dress to a charity function on a saturday night and wish i could wear it every day again. the color was stunning, as was the detail! the little bit of skin showing in the middle, plus at the bottom, made it just sexy enough. i would highly recommend this for a night out type of event, or a wedding!

So much fun!!!!
Great dress, fabulous color, so much fun to wear!!!!! I was worried about the cut when I ordered this dress. But read in reviews that the fabrication was stretchy and forgiving. All very true!!!!! The see through part is really well placed, I am 45 and don't typically go there anymore. But this was very tasteful and playful at the same time!!!! Great great dress!!!! One word though, go up one size, forget vanity and enjoy it!!!!

this dress will turn heads
perfect for an awards show in vegas. the color is bright and vibrant. the fit is tight, but not unforgiving, there's stretch in the fabric, even the lacey part. Only the small was available, I probably would have preferred the medium, but I made it work. the sheer parts are more prominant than in the picture, I wouldn't have worn this to a wedding or work event, but it's great in vegas. The skirt lining rides up, so you will spend the night pulling it down, so be prepared. I love the mid calf midi length, which offsets the sexiness of the sheer parts. I work stickies on my chest, but you don't really need a bra. overall, i thought the dress was perfect for what i needed and would consider renting again.

Babava blue!!!
I'm inLOVE with Alexis! The designer fits me well! I love this dress and the color is just fab! I wore it on a GNO and it was a total hit! It's sexy and sophisticated at the same time! I wore a nude bra and it worked well even under the lace! I didn't had to pull down the inner skirt on this one as much as I had to do it on the white version of this. Will rent this again!

So many compliments, I would buy this if I could.
I rented this dress for a September wedding in California, it was the perfect pop of color and I got so many compliments. The neckline was unique and so flattering. The dress was form fitting but flattered in all the right places, chose not to wear a bra and was totally fine. The dress was in great condition and the thick lace prevented any wrinkling from sitting or dancing. Highly recommend!!!!

Beautiful dress, lots of compliments!
This dress was beautiful. I wore it for a black tie New Years Eve wedding. It was very classy but sexy at the same time. Dress was mostly true to size but maybe runs a bit small so if you're in between sizes I recommend going up. The only con of this dress is the slip (which is already pretty short) tends to ride up. I kept having to go to the restroom to adjust. I am curvier on bottom and found this dress to be very flattering to my pear shape.

.
I ended up wearing the medium because it was just a little tight on my bust. Small did fit as well though so if you have a smaller bust and not big crossfit shoulders (lol) then definitely order the small because medium was a little big in other areas. Overall, I loved the dress!!!

Amazing Dress
Rented this for a holiday party. Loved the dress so much. Super flattering, fun color, and a huge hit! Couple of things: the inner skirt rides up sometimes, but nothing unmanageable. Also, sizing-wise, I usually am somewhere between a small and a medium in most designers--and the medium fit perfectly here. So if in doubt, size up!
