Too revealing, not meant for larger chests
This dress would be great if you are petite with a smaller bust. It had a elegant back , but front was too revealing and could not be worm with a bra at all.

The occasion and the perfect dress
It was a beautiful dress that fit true to size with the exception of the front for me. With a larger chest I needed to use fashion tape to keep it modest like the picture shows because in reality the diamond center was way too large and inappropriate for any event. I love the dress and got many compliments the whole night. This dress is also in lavender if you need more reviews.

Great for 6 months pregnant.
I needed a formal dress for an evening wedding. This dress worked great for being 6 months pregnant. The under layer is stretchy and comfortable and the outer later flows nicely over top. I got the LONG thinking I would need it for the baby bump, but definitely could have done the REGULAR- it's a long dress as it is. Very comfortable dress with many compliments.

Beautiful color, fabric, and cut- but unwearable front draping
This dress has everything you could want in a formal dress- the color and fabric are luxe, the back is really a standout- but the front just gapes open (or did on me). While the 8 fit true to size in my hips and waist, the neckline was so open it was unwearable without taping it from top to bottom (I had no tape). And, even if I had taped it, I think the fabric would've looked odd as there was really too much of it. I am a 36C, for reference, so while I don't have a large bust, I am rarely swimming in a top. Maybe I missed something here, but it was really a disappointment given everything else the dress has going for it.

Black Tie Wedding
Overall I really liked the dress. You must use double sided tape around cut out. I felt it looked a little bridesmaidesque, however I paired it with a metal belt and it was a great addition. The dress is a bit long for someone 5'4" even with heels.

Feeling beautiful at a black tie affair
This dress was so wonderful. Flattering and comfortable. It was sexy while not being too risqué. I didn't have to wear a bra and didn't need to tape the dress to keep it from coming open. The fabric around the hips added some curve to the hips and gave a nice hourglass shape. Loved it!!

Beautiful color and photographs great!
I rented this dress in my usual size 2 and a backup size 4. I ended up wearing the 4 because the slip beneath the chiffon was a little too tight on the 2. If you are curvy at all on the bottom, I would recommend ordering up a size as a back up. The other reviews are correct in that the top doesn't lay flat if you are small chested. I had to get creative with some fashion tape, but it stayed in place all night. It flowed beautifully when I walked and looked great in photographs. I received tons of compliments! It's a timeless, classy dress!

Great for black tie events.
I usually wear a 12L, but the "keyhole" gaped open on the 12. The 10 was slightly tight at the waist, but was much more modest (I still had to use medical tape as a bra). I had to wear flats in order for the dress to skim the floor, but other than that it is a gorgeous dress. I got several compliments throughout the night.

I absolutely loved this dress! I received a ton of compliments. The front of the dress was very low cut for my work event but I was able to use Hollywood tape to secure the dress from having any malfunctions. I already miss this beautiful navy dress!

Beautiful dress. Fit like a glove. I wore it to a wedding in South Carolina.
This dress was stunning in person. I am 5'5" and the dress was a bit long on me, and the deep key hole might not work as well on women with larger busts.

Beautiful gown, just as it looks in the model photos
I wish I'd ordered the 2R as it would have fit perfectly, but as this was a replacement dress (original order both sizes were destroyed by last renter) I got the 4R to ensure I'd have at least something wearable. The top was loose on my chest so I clipped it together on the inside. I spent a lot of time making sure the clip was covered, it looked great but would have been nice not to have to fidget so much. I was very comfortable as the dress doesn't hug and you can actually eat! I would suggest having a friend on hand to help hook the upper back clasp together though. Tricky solo. The length was perfect with 4 inch heels.

Too long
this dress was beautiful. I rented it as a backup dress and wanted to wear it as it is gorgeous. However, it was way too long. I am 5'3'' but even in big heels it was still so long that I could've tripped. Didn't wear it since I didn't want to risk tripping on the dress and either killing myself and/or tearing the dress

Perfect blend of elegant, trendy, and sexy. I felt beautiful!
I wore this gown to my first Opera Opening Night as part of the staff. I needed a dress that stayed true to my age, body type, and style but was also conservative enough for a work event. I felt absolutely beautiful in this gown! It is not my usual first choice of color and style but I think it perfectly fit the profile of the evening. PRO's: I think the style and cut of the dress is flattering for every body type. There are ways around the low cut if you have a full bust; in my case I had to use 2 safety pins and some Hollywood tape to make sure that only the right amount of skin was showing. Normally, I would have probably used 1 safety pin and tape but I needed to remain a bit more conservative for this event. The length is as I expected it to be (everything is always long on me anyway). CON's: The only thing that I have to mention is for ladies like me, who have curvy hips. The slip on the dress stretches but is not relative to the chiffon overlay. So, in my case, I would have been a Size 4 were it not for the tightness of the slip. Even the 6 was a little snug. There is a stark contrast between the two layers of the dress, which may be deceiving for some when looking at pictures. The dress looks flowy but the slip will not be. I cannot really say anything negative about this dress, just a warning for fellow curvy girls. In general, this was my first experience renting from RTR and I was very nervous because I am not a one size girl. I can vary from size 2-8 depending on the dress, designer, style, fabric, etc... I am 100% satisfied with the experience and will be renting again soon. THANKS RTR!!

loved the color and material, felt so elegant in it!
Beautiful dress, I felt like a princess in it! Did not want to part ways with it! The dress runs true to size. It is on the longer side and I am 5"4 and wore 4" heels and it was still slightly long. People have mentioned the front of the dress being a little loose in the bust area so I wore "petal" stickers in the front and had no issues with it (although I am a 34A so I don't have many issues with this to begin with) would highly recommend it

Flattering Fit Made Me Feel Beautiful!
It wasn't too tight, but was tailored in all the right places to show off your shape! The flow of the skirt made it great for dancing and the navy color looks classy and goes with anything. it's an understated beauty of a dress.

Customer service is so great! They respond so quickly and answer any/all questions.
Pros: Got so many compliments on it and it matched my boyfriend's military blues perfectly! The size 2R fit well but the 0R fit even better. I wore 4 inch heels with it and the length was good. The fabric is very forgiving when it comes to a post meal tummy. Cons: None really! Just recommend fashion tape as I don't have a large bust and I was worried something might show.

The dress arrived on time and fit perfectly. It was gorgeous and extremely comfortable.
I loved that the dress came with two different sizes. The dress was very comfortable ( this was me trying it on for the first time). I wore it to a holiday Christmas ball and got many complements on it. the dress was true to size. I am 5'7 and wore a 2L. With heels the dress was still touching the floor. I probably could of worn a two regular even with heels.

Beautiful dress with classy sexiness
Loved this dress! Was nervous about it being bra-challenged, but it ended up working out great. No bra was needed, and I didn't even need tape or nipple pads. I did end up using fashion tape at the top of the dress to keep it from gaping open too much though since it was for a work holiday event. The color is true to what you see on the screen - A beautiful navy. It is a very comfortable, flowy material. There is a lining that is more sheath/fitted, but not tight. I'm 5'6" and wore 4" heels. My feet showed a little bit, so my guess is this dress is perfect for a 5'8" total height (in the regular length). Much more low-maintenance dress than I imagined. Highly recommend!

light, flowing, and elegant.
I had this as a last-minute add-on when I realized I wasn't into the dress I originally ordered. Man, was I glad I landed on this one, It was perfect, and (as always with RTR) I received tons of compliments. The best ones were about the unique keyhole opening in the front. With the right bra, it was easy to adjust for more or less cleavage. I would rent this one again!

The dress fit very well. I felt it could've been tighter around the bust area...I'm a size 34C and it was a little loose. You have to use fashion tape to make sure nothing falls out...lol!

Beautiful dress, make sure it fits your body type!
I rented this dress for a wedding, it was beautiful but I didn't end up getting to wear it because the slip underneath was too tight on my hips and was unflattering on my hips where the fabric of the dress hits the waist and hips. The breast slit area in the dress is beautiful and you def. would need tape to keep it down because you can not wear a bra with this dress because of the open back, it was still too open for me in the front chest area, I didn't feel comfortable wearing it even when I did try to tape it down, I knew it probably would have bugged me all night. I did order a long because I am tall and the length was very long, but I loved that I tried it on with my high heels and it was perfect. So if you are tall and want to wear high heels with this, it will still hit the floor if that's what you want, if not just order the regular size and I'm sure it will work fine also. Still a pretty dress though, just didn't work for me.

This dress was perfect. I rented it for the Governor's Inaugural Ball. Very classy
The fit was absolutely perfect. It was a little long but I'm 5'2 and wore pretty tall heels. This dress is pretty backless just in case it doesn't show it in the photos. I was with a lot of elected officials and friends. This dress was the perfect blend of classy and elegant and it showed a little skin but not too reveling.

I wore this dress my home town debutant.
I didn't know what length to order so I went with the regular and it was too short! I was able to get the 4L within 20 hours or receiving the first dress! I ended up wearing the 4L and it was a perfect fit. The opening in the front was a little low but it was not a big deal at all and I was able to use fashion tape. I wore lower heels and the dress still dragged the floor, but not too long to deal with. I suggest if you are 5'7" or taller just go with the long! Overall i enjoyed the dress and it was easy and hassle free for the debutant! This company is great and I will for sure rent again!

Beautiful elegant dress!
Wore this dress to a fall wedding. It flows so elegantly and really flattered my figure! It's simple, yet eye catching! Truly a gorgeous dress. I am 5'8" , pear shaped with wide hips, and have a 32A bust. I rented the 2R and 4R as my sizes because I was planning on wearing flats. I ended up wearing a very low heel (1-1.5") with the 2R dress, and it was barely off the ground! Since my chest is so small, I couldn't fill the bust of the dress so I had to pin the front opening to prevent it from opening when I leaned over. The hips were fitted, but it was still comfortable to sit and walk around. Really great dress, I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a classy simple gown!

PERFECT fit!
This dress was amazing. It was actually sent to me as a backup but it fit so well and I received so many compliments. I wore it for a law school ball and it was the perfect amount of formal and sexy. I did have to tape it a little bit in the front but that was easy and the back was gorgeous. The length was perfect for 4" heels.

Loved the color and uniqueness of the dress!
Overall, the dress was gorgeous and I received so many compliments throughout the night! Length: I ordered the 2L and 4R as there was so 4L available the day of my event. I'm 5'8" and the 4R was at my ankles when I put heels on and was even short with flats. I wore the 2L which was a little long with heels (the underlining was perfect, the overlay was long kind of like a train) so I had to hold that up while dancing but it wasn't a big deal. Bust: I'm a C and was a little worried about the no bra but with some double sided tape, it was perfectly fine. The 2 was tight enough that it kept everything together and I didn't have to worry about any wardrobe malfunctions. I'm normally a 4 so I would recommend sizing down as the 4 was a little to baggy in the chest.

Comfy and unique top
I got this as a last minute pick as my original dress was returned damaged. I was skeptical about the unique top but it looked really good! I had to tape it to my boobs otherwise a nip slip was sure to happen. It fit very well all over, even over my hips which are pretty big.

I rented this to wear to a wedding, unfortunately, it was too tight and I had to go with another dress. There is no give in this dress. If you're wavering between sizes, I would size up.

The dress was simply amazing!
The dress was amazing! The open back made it a little sexy but the long length made it feel princess like. I ended up going with the 6L because the 8L felt a little loose. The long size is very long! I am 5'9 and with 3 inch heels I still had to lift my dress up. It does have sort of a train so beware of people stepping on it! Besides that I am in love with this dress and wish I could keep it!

This dress runs very long. I tried the 4R and even with 3.5 inch heels there were a couple inches of the dress that hit the floor. Back of the dress is beautiful but besides that, not a very special dress

Short and overall complicated. :(
I actually didn't get to wear this dress. Both sizes were WAY too short and the tops were both too big. It was a beautiful dress but it just did not work. Thank goodness I took an extra dress just in case from a friend.

I rented this dress for my brother-in-law's black-tie wedding.
Dress fit perfectly. The navy chiffon draped beautifully and the details on top of the dress helped give the dress some structure. This was the first time I had to wear a backless bra but the dress was tight enough that the bra stayed in place. It was very elegant and perfect for the occasion. The only downside is that the front V is very deep and while beautiful, I ended up pinning part of it closed to avoid showing my bra. The dress has enough fabric at the top that you could get away not wearing anything underneath.

This dress was unique, classy, and gorgeous!
I wore a 0R with heels (3 inch?). The twists and turns in the front were beautiful, and the back was amazing. Though I didn't need to wear a bra, I wore a sticky one anyway. I might recommend a plunge sticky bra for women with larger chests. The dress was a tad long, but it didn't really inconvenience me at all. It was beautiful!

This was a beautiful dress. I got so many compliments and felt pretty comfortable in it.
I am 5'9 and wore heels and this dress was still dragging the floor. I would lean on the side of not getting the long. I had to get the 12 to fit my waist but the bust was a little big. Tape was definitely needed. Overall it was an amazing dress and I loved it.

Gorgeous easy wear!
I rented this for a gala and absolutely fell in love. The dress flows so well when walking into the room. I received compliments all night. I normally wear a 6 but wore the 8 as it was quite snug around my rib cage. Would suggest for a simple elegant affair.
