LBD with a twist
I loved the way this fit. I was able to wear this with no bra and still not have my chest flattened. The natural waist of the dress is really fitted but the skirt is so fun. Would definitely rent again!

Pretty dress, regrettable cleavage
Loved the dress..felt pretty in it..but a regrettable amount of cleavage as the night wore on. I would rent again, but only for an event with my husband.

Loved the lace detail at the bottom! Would rent again!
I unfortunately did not get to wear this dress. It fit but I went with my second option instead. I would defiantly rent this again to wear for another occasion. It's a fun flirty dress!

Would have been great!
I ordered a 6 & 8. RTR was unable to send the 8, which would have been perfect. I am a 34D and couldn't zip it up. The fabric has zero give. Perhaps the 6 would have worked with a little bit of give. The fabric is light, the quality is good.

I wore this dress for my husband's 40th birthday party, it was a hit!
We chose "prom theme" for the party & this dress was a hit, it fit perfectly at the top, normally I don't like strapless dresses because by the end of the night you are pulling up on the top to keep it in place. Not this dress! It fit snuggly, yet comfortably, and had just the right amount of sexy mixed with fun. The length was great as well. The dress definitely fits true to size, I would not recommend ordering a size down from your normal dress size. Winner!!!

The Fit: Pretty true to size at the waist, but a little small at the bust, especially if you have some cleavage.

This fit a little smaller than expected but the ribbing built in made it seem, for the first time in my life, like a had boobs (i don't). I felt awesome in this dress!

Cute but baggy on top
I rented this as my backup dress for a wedding, but my original fit great so I didn't wear it. His dress is fun and very cute. It was about big in the chest for me, but if I doubled up on strapless Bras it would have worked fine!

Such a fun dress and very flattering!
A bit tight on the top (and I'm only 36B but do have wide shoulders) so I'm glad I ordered a size up. Really fun dress and unique. One of my favorite finds on RTR!

Was one of the best dressed besides the bride!
This is a really fun and cute dress. It's not a sexy dress so if you're going for sexy this isn't it but it was perfect for my cousin's early fall wedding where I wanted to look great without showing too much skin. Guest of all ages loved this, even my 89 year old grandma. I'm short and the length was perfect. The 8 was slightly too big on top. I had to tape the top a little but definitely not a deal breaker. I have a full bust and I didn't feel like I was falling out of the dress. Overall, perfect for the occasion!

Both the 2 and 4 were too small
I really liked the style, but too small in ribcage. Ended up wearing my own dress. I don't know if a 6 would have been too big though had I tried it on soon enough to exchange.

Not just another black dress! Lots of compliments, very comfortable, and so much fun to wear!
Very fitted in the bodice, no stretch to the material. Nice that it was a little longer in the back, so it didn't feel too short at all.

I wore this dress to a formal, evening wedding. It got lots of compliments!
This was a pretty stable & fitted strapless dress, but I did do a bit of tugging. The length was perfect -- not too short.

The dress was so elegant and flattering and fun to wear!
Dress looked fabulous, but like some other reviews mentioned, the bust is VERY tight. You could see my bikini top tan lines in the dress. I didn't expect for the skirt of the dress to be so full and swishy, but I'd highly recommend wearing some type of shorts (yoga shorts?) underneath, in case the wind picks up. Friends had to help me keep my dress down in the breeze! This was a very fun dress to wear - super flattering in the chest area. I did wear a scarf to the church part of the wedding to stay more conservative. Overall, a great dress!

Stunning. Looks like a dress from a couture photo shoot.
The dress was so gorgeous. My favorite part was the skirt, it was very full. If you are hoping to stand out then this is definately the dress to do that while staying sophisticated. It is a very flattering dress, especially for girls with bigger hips and thighs. I would not recommend it for girls with bigger chests The top was a big tight, and the dress does not have any stretch whatsoever so for a second size go up one. The dress is pretty long, about knee length in the back, so I tucked up the bottom tulle layer so it was shorter in the front. Just a warning, the zipper goes all the way down the skirt in the back which seems a little odd but it looks good.

I absolutely loved this fun party dress! I received so many compliments.
This dress runs small. I usually wear a 0 or 2. I ordered the 2 and 4. While both fit, I ended up wearing the 2. It was a bit tight but worked.

Fit like a glove- even when dancing around. You can bet I got a few twirls in with this fun skirt. If you like have all eyes on you- get this dress! Could not love it more!

Couldn't wear it
The bodice fit great but otherwise the dress did not fit at all. I am 5'10" with very long legs in relation to my torso, and it looked like I was wearing a child's dance outfit... the skirt portion was way too short in ratio to the diameter of the "poof". It would probably be adorable if you are shorter, but I am probably the same height as the model in the picture and it looked absolutely nothing like that on me. I would pass if you are tall.

Loved the dress, especially the style of the top.
The top was very tight, as other people had mentioned, which was the reason I wore a 6 even though I'm usually a 4. The bottom is somewhat goofy, but very cute.

Beautiful party dress with a pop of tulle!
I've been eying this dress for awhile, so it was my first choice for a holiday cocktail party. After reading reviews, I went up a size for my backup size. So glad I did! The 6 was great until I got to the very top of the bust and couldn't zip it. I went with the 8, which worked perfectly at the top. The pictures show the gold zipper on the top half of the dress but it actually runs the entire length of the back of the dress. It wasn't a problem, but worth noting. I would have felt more comfortable if the top of the zipper had a hook and eye closure for extra measure. A few people mentioned that the top of the dress flattened them out, but it was quite flattering. The poofy skirt with the little pop of tulle was perfect for a party and so fun to wear. The dress was the perfect length on me as well. Once again I had a fantastic dress and great service from RTR!

Very cute, tight bust
I was told the bust runs small and should have ordered a size 10. The dress is very cute and hangs nicely when on. Good length for tall women, too.

I really loved the dress and got lots of compliments! My only issue is I'm small up top and it was a little big, just had to make sure it stayed up all the time.

Good fit but didn't blow me away.
The zipper runs the entire length of the back of the dress. Prone to get stuck. Mine got stuck and my boyfriend had to spend 15 minutes trying to tear it back down. Wouldn't recommend for someone with large breasts. Tight top that presses down in your breasts creates an unflattering shape.

So many compliments! Classy but sexy
Fit was perfect, wore a strapless bra and made my smaller boobs look great. So flattering. The tulle is really fun and great to dance in. The bodice did rub my rib cage and gave me a bit of a burn but it was worth it. Wore it with no necklace and gold tipped shoes

Gorgeous dress but runs VERY small in the bust. I wish I could have worn it!
This dress is absolutely beautiful. It's well made, fun, and sexy. Unfortunately, the bust area is extremely small. I'm a 34D and while the 6 zipped up and fit my waist just fine, it didn't contain my bust. I can't even post the pic because it's just too inappropriate. I didn't opt to order the 8 and decided to go with another dress instead.

I tried on the size 6. Sadly, it wouldn't zip past my waist. I may try sizing up in the future...

Cute but too short :(
I like a lot of details about this dress but in the end the bust was too roomy for me so I would need to size down, but it felt too short for my event. Would be good for a girls weekend in Vegas

I received so many compliments!!
The dress fit perfectly, I ended up just wearing a sticky bra. Make sure that you hang it the day you receive it so the tulle has time to fall - when I received it it was bunched up. It was perfect for a wedding, it fit like it was custom made for me.

The photo does not really do this dress justice. The bottom of the dress is a lot of fun-the tulle definitely adds character. I got a ton of compliments throughout the night.

I looked good in this dress ladies lol
*Fit: fits like a glove-- tight in the torso with light wire corset to accentuate the waist. The bust area wasn't a huge deal for me since I don't have big boobs (lol) but I can see how it may be an issue if you are C or higher! I did a minor # of tugs and readjustments during the party but that was expected from a strapless dress; in fact, this dress did an amazing job staying in place without suffocating me. *Length: pretty short but there's enough laces and puffs that it actually looks very adorable. *Overall: really really really cute and I wanted to keep it <3 I even checked the maker to see how much the original dress is. *Customer service: now, I originally ordered a different dress but it was too small (and the backup was even smaller)!! Since it was my first time renting from RTR, I totally panicked... but the website was easy to navigate and I managed to order this dress in the only size that was available and then submit a did-not-fit form for the original dress. Anyways... bottom line is, I got this dress on time and it was perfect!

GORGEOUS DRESS!
I couldn't wear it because it was too small and I stupidly didn't order the next size up. But from what I saw it was so pretty and unique - I was heartbroken I couldn't wear it to my Gala.
