I work at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and wore this dress to the David Bowie Gala!
Tons of compliments all night long, and I made the Chicago Tribune's coverage of the event. http://www.chicagotribune.com/lifestyles/ct-1-mca-2-jpg-20140924-photo.html

Absolutely stunning dress with a flawless fit super flattering silhouette.
I almost rented this dress a second time. So comfortable, perfect amount of stretch, and has the most beautiful shape and details. Every single person at the party commented.

Runs crazy big, especially in the arms.
I wear a true 4, so I always rent a 4 with a back up 2. Not only was the 4 big on me, I was also swimming in the 2! The two wasn't terribly big on my waist and body as much as it was on my arms. The arms look horrible, illusion material needs to be fitted to look good. The dress has potential, if you are going to rent it know it runs 2 sizes too big. I wasnt able to wear this to my event :/

I got A LOT of compliments on this dress. It made the evening perfect. Thank you RTR!
The fit was great except for the arms, which were BAGGY for some reason. I made them look more taut by rolling them to a three-quarter sleeve length, but I think BCBG should have used a stretchy lace instead of the same lace on the dress for sleeves. Also, definitely get the long if you are taller than 5"7. I'm 5"9-5"10 and it was almost not long enough with heels.

The classiest and my most favorite dress I've worn so far from RTR
I felt so sexy in this dress. Maybe it was because I didn't wear a bra and maybe it was because everyone thought I was wearing a completely see through dress, but it has a perfect drape with the perfect amount of peekaboo panels. The art deco style is simply gorgeous. It's an ideal weight with a high quality, lightweight but substantial fabric. I highly, highly recommend this dress.

Not good for girls with a big chest. Wish the fabric was more stretchy so it hugged the body more.
Beautiful dress but probably best on tall model like bodies. Not great for curves because its not that stretchy and doesn't hug the body. The hem seemed a bit short. I love this dress and wish i could have worn it, but it just wasn't right for my body type.

Unfortunately the sIze I ordered as my second choice dress came back from the previous renter damaged so RTR sent me another dress of choice at no charge. I was SO looking forward to wearing this amazing dress and hope to rent it again as soon as it is available.

Wasn't very flattering for my body type and the sleeves were too long. I love the idea of this dress but it just didn't fit right on me.

how was the length on this? I am 5ft and want to rent so bad but scared it will be too long!
LauraOctober 28, 2014
The length wasn't too long at all. I wore only a 3 inch heel and it was perfect!! I'm short and I always have length problems, with long dresses, but not with this dress! I was pleasantly surprised!

Received tons of compliments! It's currently in stores, so very on trend and in season.
Fit like a glove. It was a bit short on me once I added heels, but still appropriate length. The front lining has a gap between the two breast lining squares, so whatever bra you wear can be seen slightly in the middle of your chest. Felt very glam, and photographed beautifully!

Be prepared to receive compliments...
This dress is a perfect combination of class with a bit of an edge. The silhouette is very flattering, and it was a great choice for a fancy evening wedding in November. I am 5'8" and with my smallest 3"heels the long was just a touch short, but still completely wearable. The skirt is lined with a nude fabric, but the top only has small panels of nude fabric covering the chest. I wore a nude bra underneath, but be aware that the top is quite see through and your bra will show, unless you can get away with going sans bra, for which I commend you. Given the chance, I would definitely rent this once again!

It's a statement dress that stands out from the rest!
The fit was comfortable. I rented a 6 because I was afraid the 4 wouldn't give me room to move my arms being that it's long sleeve. I made the right choice! So if you want a dress that is chic, sexy, and doesn't need much jewelry -this is the one!

I received more compliments from friends and strangers alike than I have ever had in my life!
This dress fit me like a glove. I was fortunate to find this exact dress @ Nordstrom prior to finding it on RTR so I knew exactly what size to order. I must say, I'm glad I did as the backup size I requested was not available, which could have left me without a dress on awards night (happened to some of my friends when their RTR dress didn't fit - good thing they had some old gowns in their closets to fall back on). The nude underlining and cutouts were sexy without being too revealing. I was covered from neck to toe but felt super sexy in this dress! This dress was also very comfortable to be in for a really long night at an awards show & afterparty. It definitely works best on a certain type of body (one with boobs and a booty) so maybe not everyone can wear it, but if you have a similar body shape to me and like a dress that will make you turn heads - rent this one! One complaint on the RTR dress vs. the Nordstrom one I originally bought...The underlining (nude) was shorter in the RTR one which made it a bit weird with heels. Other than that, I had no complaints with the dress and with all of the compliments I received that night, I almost contemplated keeping the one I bought @ Nordstrom so I could wear it again and again and again.

This dress is gorgeous and I got compliments all night long!
I wore this to a formal charity ball and while the fit was pretty exquisite it did feel it was about an inch and half short in length. Either way, I felt pretty and I had so many random people say so. I will definitely rent again! As it worked out perfectly and saved me a ton of money which I could then give to the charity ;)

Showstopper! Got tons of compliments on the dress.
I fell in love with the dress as soon as I saw it on the website. However, they only had a 2L size for the weekend of my party, no 4's. I decided to order the 2L and was trying to add a back up in a different style but the system wasn't letting me add it and the 2L was the last one left so I quickly placed my order. I then emailed a customer service rep to add on the additional style dress, because who knew if this dress was going to fit? I asked if there were specific measurements, but no luck. Fast forward to last weekend for my event...only the 2L dress was delivered (Friday night - my event was Saturday). No back up dresses!! It was a MIRACLE that the 2L fit.. It was snug, but I loved this dress and was going to have a Tim Gunn moment and Make It Work.. Loved wearing this dress and felt like I was going to the Oscars. Got a ton of compliments, but the stress of only having one size delivered was too much!

Stunning, everyone had to stop me to tell me about what a beautiful dress i was wearing. I rented a "4L" because the "4R" was not avaialble and the "L" just the right length not too long. I wore 4" heels and the dress barely hit the floor. This dress was to die for!!!!

I got SO many compliments on my dress that night and even days after the party!
First of all, I immediately fell in love with this dress from the moment I saw it on RTR. I had a holiday party to go to with an "Old Hollywood" theme. This dress was beyond perfect for it. I'm tiny and ordered a 0R, which there wasn't an option for me to get a 0L, but it worked out perfectly in the long run. I typically wanted the gown to be floor length but it was just past the ankle length. But in the end, the length was perfect because I probably would have stepped all over it. Again, I'm a size 0 but there were still a couple of areas where I wished it had fit better but it wasn't that noticeable so, no big deal. I will say though, that the dress had a very odd smell to it so I sprayed tons of perfume without trying to kill someone, including myself. Haha. But that was my only biggest problem with it. I don't know if it was the dry cleaners, the bag it came in, or the previous user, but the smell was very annoying at first. But other than that, I got compliments on the street from random people as I walked up to the party, tons of compliments at the party and even more compliments for days after the party at work, from friends and through social media! The dress was killer! I would most definitely rent from RTR again!

If you like receiving compliments, rent this!
This dress is a head-turning, show-stopper....I loved it! I ordered the 10R and 8L. If you are 5'6" or taller, rent the long length. The 10 was the better size for me since I'm really busty and have a little gut BUT it was basically hitting above my ankles and did not look good with a high heel. Went with the 8L which was tight- I wore spanx, held in my stomach and just dealt with it. If you are really busty, fair warning, the torso has boning and didn't work well with a strapless bra. Bonus- this was my first time picking up in the store and I LOVED the experience!! All of the consultants were fabulous!

A stunning dress that's even better in person
This dress was included in my rental as a first-time user of RTR and I'm so happy I took a chance on it even though it was a new arrival at the time and there were no reviews. I instantly fell in love with the dress when I saw it online and it was even more gorgeous once I put it on. The fit ended up being great. It was long on me, but I wore it with 6-inch heels with a platform which made the length perfect. The fabric is very light with good movement so I was totally comfortable wearing it all night for an awards ceremony. It was hard to take the dress off at the end of the night! I was happy that I didn't have to wear a bra with this dress since I'm super anti-bra. The dress made me feel incredibly sexy and sophisticated and I received many compliments during and after the event. The only negative thing I can say is that there was a minor tear in the mesh of my particular dress near the hemline, but it wasn't noticeable. It didn't ruin the essence of the dress at all thankfully. For more pictures: http://youthfullygrown.com/6a2p

Loved this dress and received so many compliments on it! I wore the 10L and it was a good length with very low heels. My heels were only 1-2" and anything higher would have made the dress too short.

It's roomy. Normally I'm a 4/6, but this one fit in a 2 and 4. I could have gone with either and I am NOT a 2. The 4 was more comfortable, so that's what I wore.

Nice event
This is a very pretty dress. I generally wear an 8 and I should have worn a 6 but I was able to get into the size 4 and I was comfortable all evening. Although it covers more than most dresses it looks revealing so you'd need to know your audience. Be very careful with your heels getting caught in the lace when you walk.

Such a showstopper
This dress runs a bit large I'm normally an 8 and ended up wearing the 6. It hugs curves beautifully and fits like a glove. I wore it to a black tie wedding and I got so many compliments on it all night. It's the perfect blend of sexy and class. I'm 5'5 and got the regular and wore it with 4" heels and feel like i could have used another inch or two in length. Also as other reviewers noted there is no nude underlay through the middle of the bust so your bra options are limited.

Worn by model in a styled shoot in Chicago. Chose the dress b/c it mimics the John Hancock building.
The dress photographs well but I was a bit disappointed with the quality:price ratio. The dress had a couple tears along the hem and was less structured than expected. Overall a great dress for what I needed, but I wouldn't rent it again unless it was a little cheaper to do so. It also ran a little larger for us. My model wears a size 8 and it was loose in some places while still being a bit short for heels. (inserting as much of model's size info as I know)

Beautiful dress
I got compliments on this dress all night long. The pattern and the cut are very flattering. The sleeves are a little long- a problem I've never had before- and I wore heels that put me around 5'10" and I thought the regular length was perfect, so I think it's cut a little long in general. Other than that, loved the dress.

Fantastic choice for my best friends wedding. Modest, yet sexy.
I am 5 ft tall and this was a tad long still with 4 inch heels. I almost returned until I realized it was exactly what I wanted. Winter wedding, so covered me, yet panels offered the illusion of being revealing. The 2r fit perfectly besides being a little too long. Also this dress is completely sheet in the front sternum area- which I was unaware of. I am a 32DD and didn't need a bra but if you need support I am not sure what bra I could have worn.

This art deco dress was absolutely GORGEOUS and I received endless compliments the entire night!
I rented this dress for a Great Gatsby themed event and it was PERFECT! This dress fits true to size. I am 5'6". The regular length is perfect if you want to kick off your heels and dance barefoot or wear flats as the night progresses. There is tan paneling in the dress, but you'll need to find the correct bra as there is is no paneling from the collarbone to your bellybutton. FYI--A tan bra (not sheer) worked perfectly, but you can see this in close-up, well-lit pictures.

Very disappointing - thin fabric, no structure
This dress has no structure at all and the fabric looks a bit cheap. I expected very heavy two-toned fabric, but this is nude with black lace overlay. Also, the bust area is sheer - I couldn't wear any kind of bra and the girls looked very droopy. :(

Breathtaking!!
The dress was beautiful on the hanger but I was disappointed to find tears on the right sleeve. I called for a replacement but no dresses were available so I had no other option but to wear the dress. Other than the tears on the sleeve, the dress was breathtaking. I felt like glamorous and received compliments all night! The length was perfect even with 4 inch heels. The dress fits like a glove however please note that there is no stretch. Only wear this dress if you are prepared to be the center of attention. This dress is a show stopper!

Stunning!
Are you ready to feel like a million bucks?! This dress had compliments coming all night long! The fit was perfect and true to size. I am 5' 4"/130lbs and I wore the 4R. Normally I would have preferred the 4L to accommodate for higher heels, but it was winter and I just wore some shorter booties that didn't show. This dress made me feel slim and sexy. I loved the mesh around the arms and around the top of the dress. The dress kept me warm but the mesh in the sleeves made for a nice breather in the ballroom! It hugged in all the right places and held in all the places that need holding in. All in all I would definitely recommend this dress!

Tons of compliments, all night!
Easy for, skimmed over hips which can be my hardest area to fit. The dress would not work for someone large chested. It is sheer down the middle torso with nude patches covering the side chest area so no way to wear a bra, even the sticky ones. The sleeves are sheer also with a nude underlay on the rest of the gown. It was beautiful and very easy to wear.

Stylist Review!
I love the pattern on this gown! With the long-sleeves, it's ideal for a winter black-tie event. The material is a bit lighter than I would have expected so spanx are definitely a great way to help show off your figure. It runs true to size, but I would size down as backup especially if you are smaller busted. I would be wary of this style if you are larger busted because the lining cuts very close to the breast area. At 5'7" the regular length was short on me so definitely order a long if you are 5'7" or taller (including heels).
