This dress is amazing!
I was a little nervous about the cut-outs, but this dress is super flattering! You can wear a regular bra with it but it's definitely a special piece that stands out. Perfect for a rehearsal dinner or any Spring party.

This dress was so awesome! I got tons of comliments all night and it was very comfortable.
It fits true to size, however I'm not sure if the color was noted in the description. I thought it was a black dress and it is a navy blue. Still very pretty and flattering though. This was my first rental and I can't wait to do it again, I also rented the Kate Spade necklace as worn on the model. My friend in the photos rented hers as well but I don't remember which one it was.

A timeless dress with just enough, but not too much, sexy!
This dress looks amazing in person! It highlights your waist and back. I'm very short and small chested so the fit was perfect. The flare of the skirt made it more dressy and the white meshing looks great. It looks black but is actually a dark navy. I wish that I owned this dress!!

I have the EXACT same height, weight and frame as you! I read some reviews that the fit is strange and they had to go to the bathroom multiple times to re-adjust it... did you have that same problem? I love this dress but I want to rent a hassle-free kind of dress. Thanks in advance!

I received more compliments on this fantastic dress at an event than any other RTR dresses!
I wore the size 2 to this outside night wedding. It was a perfect fit for my 5'5 122lbs athletic build. I have found that I typically wear size 2's in RTR dresses. However, sometimes I am a 4. This dress is SUPER classy and very different in the sense that it stand outs because of the back design and mesh bottom. SO many compliments!!!I had one guy in mid conversation stop and say "by the way that is a fantastic dress"... and isn't that what every lady wants to hear! ha! I have to say I do wish I owned this dress. The class and sass it brings to an event is STELLAR. I highly recommend this dress.

Received tons of compliments on this dress. It's flirty & easy to dress up for a formal affair.
Fit was super flattering for my pear shape with strategic cut-out placements (above love handle zone). Best of all, I would wear a bra.

GET THIS DRESS!
I can't count how many compliments I got on this dress. I wore this for my husband's MBA graduation. This dress looks so classy, but the way it is cut made me feel a little sexy and not too formal. It fit really snug in the chest but I guess because of the fabric and the dark color, the girls didn't look squished! I LOVE being able to wear a dress that looks so different from anything I could buy at the store for this price! A+++

Very flattering dress!
This dress is very flattering, I loved it! The only issue I had was the fit of the torso. I have an athletic build, so I have a wide back. The zipper on the top portion busted open a couple times while dancing at a wedding. Maybe it's not the best dress for dancing in? However, I feel my body's proportions are off a bit. Other than that, I really loved this dress and would get it again.

This dress is the epitome of sexy meets classy; I felt like a million bucks!
This dress is AMAZING. So unique, you are sure to stand out in a crowd. The top is awesome because you can wear a regular bra without it showing, but it does run tight. If I was any bigger than a 34B, I probably wouldn't have been able to breathe in it. The flare at the bottom is lovely, the only con is if you are sitting on the white mesh stripes, they can dig in to your thigh and be a little uncomfortable. Luckily, i was up and moving most of the wedding. The small cons are SO worth getting the dress though. Overall it was super comfortable and looked very classy. It is a dark navy blue and a fancy looking fabric, so definitely dressy enough for formal events (I wore mine to a black tie optional wedding at a country club). Favorite dress I've ever worn and very flattering. Both sizes fit but the bigger one fit better, so I'd size up if you are in between sizes like me. Get it for your next summer wedding!

The most comfortable dress I've worn to a sorority formal yet!
I normally wear a 6 or an 8 in dresses, mostly for length. I thought the 8 would fit well in this dress, but if you have a smaller waist I would probably size down for your 2nd size - I think I could have fit into the 4. This was an absolutely fabulous dress though, and I got so many compliments on it. Consider wearing with a coral colored big necklace - the color really pops against the navy dress!

The dress hailed compliments all afternoon long. The best being: You look like you belong in NYC!!!
The dress made a splash on the scene as I received non-stop compliments all afternoon long. I wore it for my bridal shower and indeed looked like "the celebrant." The dress was easy, fun, comfortable & made a statement. Overall, I am extremely happy with RTR and am looking forward to my future rentals.......coming in 2 weeks for my bachelorette party.

Unique style & fun party dress
I rented this for a wedding and decided to wear the other style instead. This dress is very unique and has a real party vibe about it. I felt like it was a little much for a wedding since the cut outs came around the front, but some of my friends thought it would be fine. I'm usually a size 2 and found that it ran a little big. I probably needed the 0, but will say this is not for someone with a big chest. I'm a 34B and it wouldn't give much more room than that.

. I received an astounding amount of compliments.
This was a perfect rental for a beach summer wedding. I have a wider upper back so it was tighter on top than around the waist for me but still fit nicely. That is why i went with the 6, the 4 was too tight on top. I thought the dress was black but its actually navy.

Absolutely Amazing! I Wish I Owned It!
the fit of this dress is so flattering. it is the perfect combination of sexy and classy. It runs a tad big, I usually wear a 4 and ended up wearing the 2. The fabric is perfect and structured. I normally feel like I need to struggle with backless bras when wearing a backless dress but did not have to with this dress. I received so many compliments and felt great! I absolutely cannot recommend it enough! rent this dress! You will NOT be disappointed!

Awkward fit
I didn't end up wearing this dress. I guess I am disproportional or have a small torso because the cut out sagged on me, yet the skirt part was too big and the top part was too small. Beautiful dress however I think it is made for certain, proportional body types!

My favorite rental so far!
This was my fifth dress rental from RTR and by far my favorite! The dress is so unique and comfortable. I could not have imagined a better dress for the wedding that I attended. I am usually between a size 4 and 6 depending on the dress and I ended up wearing the 4. I have a smaller bust and the 4 fit me better on the top and there was less volume on the bottom. I received countless compliments on this dress. I would suggest it to anyone!

Didn't Fit
I got this dress because I wouldn't have to worry about it being too small around my hip region. Sadly, just didn't fit my body type. I have a tiny waist, and the 6 and 4 both made the bottom part hang down in the back. The 6 fit on the top part, and the 4 was a little snug. I had to return it and wear a dress I already owned.

Must Rent! Gorgeous!
I felt so glamorous and beautiful in this dress! The length was perfect, not too long or too short. The only problems I had was that I have a short waist and I'm very petit so the top portion of the dress seemed a little large, but I was already wearing the backup size 0 so I just worked with it. Regardless, I still loved the dress and felt fashionable. It's only of my favorite rentals! P.S- just be aware that the skirt does wrinkly easily

Better on taller women.
I didn't wear this dress because the front piece connecting to the skirt was too long on me and would not lay flat against my ribs. Too bad -- I loved the look overall, especially the full skirt at the natural waist to hide the ol' baby belly. My 5' 11" sister tried it on for fun, however, and it looked GREAT on her.

Unique & Classy
This dress was really very chic and different. I was hesitant about the cut out since I had to attend a wedding service in a Catholic church but overall the length and the showing of skin were tasteful. I got the 8 and the 10, the 8 really minimized my bust so much that I didn’t wear a strapless bra, the 10 gave me more bust room but was looser in the torso and waste. From the front the dress just looks like a simple black dress(almost Navy blue looking) so it needs to be accessorized. I wore the pearly RJ Graziano necklace also from RTR. This was the perfect necklace to go with the dress. On a side note, the material was cool and it doesn't wrinkle. I would recommend this dress to any gal looking to take a fun fashion risk.

Felt cute and comfortable
I liked this dress a lot because it was really comfortable and for the most part fit well. I ordered a 4 and 6 and wore the 4, but I think even a 2 would have been ok. The part of the dress in the middle where the top meets the bottom was a little weird looking because it was large. I wish I had fashion tape or safety pins to make it look a little better. The dress also looked worn as there were many snags. I liked that I could easily wear a strapless bra and not have to worry about getting a backless one. You should know that the dress is blue and not black, so dont plan on wearing black shoes or accessories.

Preppy in the front, sexy in the back.
Was bummed I had to return this for fit. The bust was way too small (you can't wear a bra with this if you have a larger chest) and the back gaped way too much. I couldn't decide whether to click "runs small" or "runs large"... Also the dress I received had a sticky zipper. Cute idea, probably best for those with a smaller chest. Color/fabric was beautiful. Length was not an issue.

This was the perfect 31st party dress! I loved the real waist and the open back.
I am small chested and this was very flattering. I could still wear a bra too. The back was super sexy and the skirt made me feel like the perfect party girl! I would rent this dress again!

This dress was a Show-Stopper!!
Overall fit was good - I wish I would have gotten a 0 instead of a 4 as my backup - the 2 was a little loose around the waist, but overall it looked FABULOUS!! I definitely recommend renting this "wow" dress!

I looked awesome in it, but it was kind of a fluke. I don't know if I'd recommend it to a friend.
The front is awkward, it's hard to know how it is "supposed" to fit, but I do not think it fit me right. I wore it to a 90 degree wedding so I was sooo comfy but I think it I was inside air conditioning I might have felt cold.

Gorgeous dress and actually comfortable!
I ordered the 2 and the 4 and didn't even need try the 4 on. The 2 was too tight in the top to wear a regular bra, but worked great with a backless. The waistband initially seemed big, but did not sag or look sloppy, and actually ended up being incredibly comfortable while sitting and dancing. I am generally a statement necklace kinda girl, but once I had the dress on I decided it made enough of a statement almost on it's own and decided to simply pair it with a statement bracelet and large stud earrings. Although, it would certainly look beautiful with chandelier earrings as well.

As usual RTR didn't let me down. This dress is a unique show stopper.
This dress fit like a glove. Being 5'11 the dress was the perfect length, just the right amount of class. I would definitely rent this dress again!

sassy & classy
The idea of a cut-out dress really made me uncomfortable, but this dress was AMAZING! The 4 was a little in the bottom section - I ended up pinning the skirt so it wouldn't dip down my back. I really liked that I was able to wear a strapless bra with the dress. It was so comfortable all night long, I was upset when I had to send it back!

Just sexy enough..
Wore this to an evening networking function and it was a big hit! A little professional, a little sexy, and a whole lotta fun. Pear shapes rejoice--this dress is made for your body! Make sure you get the size that will fit the smallest part of your waist--I am usually a 4/6 on top, and even the 4 was a little loose on my waist. Would definitely not recommend the dress for anyone above a C-cup--the dress is very fitted on top and would probably flatten a large chest. Also, the dress is a dark blue in person, not black, so coordinate your accessories accordingly. Have fun!

Love the dress!
I didn't wear it because it ended up being too cold. It looked amazing though! I didn't need a bra.....and I usually DO need a bra. The top kept the girls tight but still had shape. Perfect for a warmer day! May rent again.

.
Beautiful dress, but not very flattering for my body type. There were runs in the fabric that were either on purpose or from lots of use. It looked fine in person, so it wasn't a big deal, but I didn't see that detailing in the photo so I was unsure.
