Stand out in a crowd
The back on this dress is what really makes it. I would have given it five stars except it was a little bit big in the waist, which made me look like I had a tummy that I don't have. And I had to improvise a backless bra. I got tons of compliments and stood out in a crowd of LBDs.

I wore this to a dear friend's wedding and got compliments all night long.
This dress was comfortable and form-fitting without being restrictive. I didn't have to wear a bra with it, but I could imagine the open back and the give in the fabric would make that harder for women who need more support. Would definitely wear it again to another wedding.

Best rental ever.
I'm a 34DD, always need a bra, with a small waist and big hips. I was skeptical but I have zero complaints. Dress hugged in all the right places, wore it with a nubra, which was surprisingly perfect. I'm going to rent the gown version for an upcoming summer wedding. Material is super stretchy and so comfortable. Easy on/off. This was my second RTR experience, and both have been fantastic.

I wore this to a very upscale charity ball and received so many compliments!
The dress is extremely comfortable yet glamorous - the cowl back is the real stunner and shows off the part of my body that at age 55 is still fit, trim and without cellulite or wrinkles! I'm 5' 7", 135 lbs and very lean. I ordered the 8 and the 10. Without control top hose I would've worn the 10 just because I don't like to look lumpy anywhere, but paired with sheer control top hose it fit perfectly; snug enough to be sexy but roomy enough to be completely comfortable. It looked amazing under the party lights and I have to say I was one of the best dressed ladies at the event - great dress, great price and great service!

Gorgeous. Better in Person.
Comfortable but still glamorous. Not too short and I'm 5'8. I was worried about the dress being too plain for Barristers Prom.. but it was elegant and can be played up or down depending on jewelry and shoes.

Comfortable, classy & sexy!
The fit was spot on. I could have worn the 6, but went with the 8 for more room to walk/dance. Worn with nude heels. A bit clingy to the middle section (my problem area), but the overall fit was fantastic. I wore this to an outdoor evening wedding ceremony, received compliments all evening. I felt confident and comfortable, The shimmer/sparkle is incredible and the back is stunning!

Wore this one in a longer version for a previous gig, and loved it! The shorter version ran a bit larger so I wore the 2 instead of the 4. Received tons of compliments including, "Dat dress doh..." from my husband. :) Highly recommend it!

Formal charity event
My original dress was not flattering and I panicked! I called RTR and the stylist was the best! She went to my hearts list for the event to see my other dress options. She checked availability and sent me a new dress in two sizes. The dresses arrived the next day and was PERFECT! I got tons of compliments on the dress! I have extremely sensitive skin and had no problems with the sequins rubbing. This is a great party dress!!!!!

Stretchy material, low back, not itchy.
This is the second time I rented this dress for a Saturday night wedding. Being a full 34DD I do not go braless. I purchased the low-back strap converter from RTR with my first rental and it worked perfectly. Because of the cap sleeves and high neck I wore a regular bra and was able to dance the night away without a worry in the world. The second time I rented the dress there was definitely a bit more wear in in. The hemline hit mid-knee, but put with the very low back and curve-fitting stretch of the material it was just enough classy as sexy. Great for curves.

Beautiful back!
I liked this dress but didn't end up wearing it. I loved the way the dress fell on me, but after 2 kids I felt like I needed a little more support in my bust. In my eyes my busy fell somewhere around my hips..... Ha! Not sure if hats true, but if I had extra protection and lift for "the girls" this would have fit like a dream!

Conservative from the front, party from the back!
Dress fit like a GLOVE. The length was appropriate for an award dinner, it was comfortable (especially for being sequins all around) and everyone kept telling me that I sparkled all the way to the back of the hall (which was about a 5,000 person venue). What I liked most was I joked that it was, "conservative from the front and a party from the back" because of the sexy (but not too sexy) draping of the fabric. If you have a pretty back...wear your hair up. It's a SHOW STOPPER.

I'm planning to wear the dress for my brothers wedding.
I haven't even worn the dress to the event yet, but the dress is so beautiful when I tried it on that I couldn't wait to review it. The dress is beautiful, stretchy, and comfortable. because of the reviews I decided to get a smaller size, I'm glad I did because the dress does run big.

Great fit, fun sparkle, amazing back
Fit was easy, it's clingy in a good way and there wasn't much difference between the two sizes. I made a duct tape bra and did just fine (though not recommended). Compliments all night long. Color is more periwinkle than expected but still stunning.

The sequins get caught on other sequins (I.e. Scarfs, decorations) but not a big issue.

Stunning dress! Beautiful color. Tastefully sexy.
Fit true to size. There is some give so the dress accentuates curves in all the right places. I did need a backless bra (NuBra backless adhesive bra); the low back is tastefully sexy. I wore a short slip to eliminate friction between my Spanx and the dress lining so the dress wouldn't ride up around the hips. I was disappointed to find that my backup size was not available but it probably would have been too big in the bust area anyway even though the extra hip room may have eliminated the need for the slip. The scratchy sequins under the arms were a minor irritation that was well worth the way I felt in this dress! I wore it to a holiday cocktail party and got many, many compliments! The beautiful blue was one-of-a-kind in a sea of typically-colored holiday dresses.

Perfect for a black tie optional wedding
Another stunning rental, thanks to RTR. I wanted something that would stand out and was still sexy without being too over the top for a black tie optional wedding. This dress was perfect. I'm usually a size 4 (5'3" 134lbs and curvy/athletic build) but the 2 fit perfectly without being too tight. I'd definitely size down. I was also surprised that the sequins didn't cause much irritation under my arms. Rent this dress!

it's too bad this dress runs so large. I was unable to wear it.
I sent this back because it was too big. I ordered a zero and I didn't fit like a size 0.

Shiny and pretty, size down!
While I did receive many compliments on the dress, it was not an RTR favorite of mine. It was longer than I expected (I am 5'8 with long legs), heavy and a little itchy because of the sequins, and larger than expected. I also tried to pair with tights or nylons but felt like it looked like an awkward combination.

Sparkle and shine!
Loved this dress. Sequins weren't itchy. I loved the stretch. I would have gotten an 8 because that's what I usually wear, but it wasn't available. Good thing because it would've been big especially at the top.

This dress made me feel amazing!
I rented this for a New Year's Eve party. It was festive and sparkly, so just right for the occasion. I rented the 2 and the 4, and I felt like the 4 gave me a little more wiggle room in the lower half (I'm a pretty classic pear). I did wear spanx but just to smooth everything out, would have been fine without. The back is fantastic! I received tons of compliments all night, and my husband loved it as well.

Sparkles make the party AWESOME
This was my backup. I picked the gold version originally but was feeling bloated and this was more forgiving. Falls in all the right places... I felt awesome! I'm a 38D and I was able to comfortably wear an adhesive bra and felt perfectly supported the whole night. Got a ton of compliments and even a kiss from a random stranger! Haha... enjoy!

Shimmer with a surprise in the back!
This dress hugs the body without being clingy. It's easy to move in and didn't ride up after sitting or while dancing. The back is fairly low, so a standard strapless bra doesn't work. At 5'5", this dress was a bit longer than anticipated, skimming the top of my knees.

Gatsby New Year
Rented this dress for a New Years Eve 20's themed party. It was perfect. The dress was a little tight over my tummy area but I wore some shapewear which helped a lot. It fit true to size. I especially loved the back of the dress, it gave a fun element. I expected to have some rubbing from the sequins but was pleasantly surprised that I didn't have any irritation.

Beautiful dress! Fit well, great color, love the draped back!
True to size on the fit. I am petite and it came to the top of my knee. The main downside with this dress was that my arms were very red and chafed by the end of the night after rubbing on the sequins.

Was considering it for a wedding, but ultimately not springy enough.
Was certainly the right size, but had weird gaping in front of the armpits. Color is much more periwinkle/purply than I expected.

Super comfortable and classy, but yet- sexy dress. The dress is totally true to size, with a little forgiveness. The bra situation is tough- need a backless bra. Everyone loved it.
