This dress was super flattering in all the right places and comfortable to dance in!

I usually wear somewhere between a 2 and 4 in most formal gowns, and ended up going with the 2. I probably could have gone without a bra, but with pasties it was great too. The dress just hits the ground with a 3" heel. I loved how unique & subtly sexy the dress was. Perfect for a black tie or formal wedding/event!

Stylist Review!

This gown is a great fit! The dark and light blue colors make it a great winter to spring/summer transition style. It fits true to size, but I'd recommend sizing up for your free backup if you're more curvy and down if you're smaller framed. The 2 fit me well, but I'd like to see how the 0 fit in the bust area. As well, a long-length would have fit better since I'm 5'7" and definitely would wear heels with this gown. It is slightly padded with a built in bra, which is nice! The back is completely lace so you cannot wear a standard bra with this style. I'd recommend pairing this gown with statement earrings!

Awesome! Very different dress but flattering/comfortable.

I am usually inbetween a 4 and 6 and the 4 fit perfectly so I would suggest sizing down. The 6 was way too big. I am 5,5 and ordered the regular dress and it was almost too long. I usually like wearing 2-3 inch heels and had to wear 4 inch heels for it to not drag. But the dress worked out perfectly. I received a ton of compliments. The light blue line on the dress made it very flattering and really pop. I was worried about it being too much material for a long dress but it was just right. Would highly suggest this dress!

I received so many compliments on this dress - wish it was something I could keep in my closet!

This dress fit beautifully for the most part - I'd say it ran pretty true to size. I am normally a 4, and the 4R fit right through the bodice. The only "negative" was the long length - I am 5'6" and even with 3-inch heels the dress was a bit long. I had to be careful not to step on it throughout the night. I did wear a nude strapless bra with the dress. There is not lining under the lace details, but the back strap of the bra was barely visible through the lace. I loved the colors of this dress - the navy was classic, but the aqua provided a pop of contrast/fun. The even was a black-tie optional wedding. This dress was formal, but the sleeveless and sheer skirt details made it a bit more casual than a formal gown - perfect for a spring wedding.

Gorgeous gown with tons of fabric

The dress was beautiful and obviously well-made. The pleating means there is a LOT of fabric - I had to be careful getting up and down out of seats and because I'm only 5'4" or so, even the 2R got stepped on a few times. The top is breathtaking and it's pretty comfortable. I think it runs pretty true to size - with my bust size (34C) it was a little tight in that area. The ribbon at the smallest part of your waist has NO stretch so definitely size up - I would have worn the 4 but was already struggling with the length in 4" heels and didn't want the dress any longer than it already was.

Could be flattering but not on me

This was sent as a back up when my original dress was unavailable in my size. The style is pretty and the colors are like the picture; however, it just wasn't flattering on me. I think this may look better on really tall ladies, or ladies with some curves. It just did nothing for my figure, which was a bummer. But still a pretty dress with lovely details.

Way too long!!!

Let me start by saying this is a beautiful dress and it's made beautifully well. I am just short and apparently this dress can't be worn by anyone under 5'5 because it will swallow you. I didn't end up wearing it because I would have tripped several times. Before I got it, I checked out the reviews and most of the people didn't have curves like me but I think it looked great on my curves. It's enough volume to make you feel floaty and pretty without adding weight. Go get this dress taller than me girls-you'll rock it :)

So unique and elegant. The pleats make it so fun!

This was a backup dress suggested by an RTR stylist and I could NOT be more thankful. This dress fit like a glove and flowed beautifully, which was a nice effect considering the entrances to my events were several red carpets and step-and-repeats. I ordered the 6L because it was the only one left, but with 4 inch heels it worked perfectly. Note: there's a slip inside and the pleated part is sheer, so be sure you have shoes that complement well! You can't wear a bra with this, so I invested in some tape that also worked perfectly. I was so thrilled with this dress, and it was one of the ONLY dresses that didn't have a RTR twin at this widely attended event.

I received so many compliments on this dress. It was comfortable to wear and absolutely gorgeous.

The fit was perfect! I'm 6ft. And the long fit just right with a flat. The dress also fit well across the chest, I'm a 32 DD, so that is often a challenge. I wore a strapless bar under.

Amazing dress with beautiful detail. I was complimented on it non-stop all night.

Great fit. True to size. I wore it to my undergraduate senior formal. I'm 5'3" so I was scared about the length being too long (even though I wore a 6R) but with 3" heels I was fine. The dress is absolutely gorgeous and if it wasn't for its $500 price tag, I would have bought it instead of renting it. I highly recommend this dress.

I am just about 5"8 and usually wear a 4. I found this to be true to size. The dress is quite long, which I found to be a good thing. I wore small heals and was able to walk easily. Rent this dress!

BCBG never fails. Dress was in perfect condition, and it was a great fit.

I am a size 6, and it was true to fit. I am 5'7", 138lbs, athletic build, bra size 32D. The dress was perfect with high heels, and super comfortable. I wore a stick on bra, because you could see bra straps through the lace fabric. Up do, for this dress.

It was the perfect dress for a black tie wedding. Got so many good compliments.

I'm short, so the dress was a bit too long. But, with the right heals it was perfect for the occasion. The dress otherwise fit GREAT.

The dress fit well and was very comfortable. It was a tiny bit longer than I would have worn it had it been my own but it was not a problem at all. Absolutely loved the dress and would highly recommend it to anyone interested.

Never ending compliments!

Wow this dress was gorgeous! I wore this for a "formal attire- black tie optional" wedding in St. Augustine, FL. I cannot believe how many compliments I received. I paired the dress with the "Ella Carter Reagan Earrings" for $5 rental and they gave the dress the perfect pop for a formal touch. The 4R fit like a glove (I got the 6 as a backup based on other reviews) However, it was entirely too long for my 5'1 self but I couldn't resist wearing it anyway. I wore my tallest nude heels but still had to protect the bottom from others stepping on it. The compliments are still rolling in. I just love how the light blue accent made my waist look so tiny. I will say i felt like the nude lining underneath was a little too short as I noticed it hiking up a little so caution on that one. It was also quite visible in the sunlight. Bottom line-- I loved it and loved the compliments I received even more! My only wish is for it to come in a size SHORT! Either way I would highly recommend!!!!

I wore this gem to the Webby Awards in NYC!

The length was perfect, and the fit in the bust was so snug for those larger endowed that I didn't even have to wear a bra - almost unheard of! I felt comfortable all night, and the sheer portions were the right placement and amount of skin so they were flattering.

Unique and beautiful dress

I wore this dress for my senior prom and I got compliments all night about how unique and beautiful it was. The colors are beautiful and there are so many details that make this dress unforgettable. The dress fits true to size and is great for dancing in since the bottom is so flows and the top is supportive. I would definitely recommend this dress!

Received compliments on the dress all night! It is really stunning, and the shape is very flattering

The dress felt true to size. I ordered a 2R and 4R and went with the 4R because it was a little less constricting around the rib cage. I'm 5'5 with a straight and narrow build, and am usually between sizes 2-4. I wore 3.5 inch heels and about 1 inch of the dress was on the floor. Did not have to wear a bra with it due to the thick fabric of the dress at the chest area (though I am small chested and not sure how this would affect ladies who are better endowed in that area).

Pictures do not do this dress justice!

Pictures do not do this dress justice! I am so happy I saw this dress in a BCBG store or I would not have ordered it. I received a handful of compliments before we even left the hotel for the wedding. The dress was so comfortable. I typically would wear a long length but the dress runs long. I wore 3 ¾” heels and the thought the regular length looked fine. Don’t let this dress fool you, it does have a little bit of “sexy” to it - lace back, lace cut outs in the front and nude lining in the bottom stops mid-thigh! I have an athletic build but think this dress would look great on any shape and size!

Perfect for a formal wedding

I rented this dress for a friend's formal wedding, and it was perfect. It was really lightweight feeling, and made me feel very glamorous. It does run a bit big, I'm normally a size 4 but the 2 was the best fit for me (I'm also a 32DD), and it was a great length with heels... maybe a touch on the longer side. The mini-dress underneath it is actually very nice and gave some extra needed coverage. You definitely can't wear a bra with this one!

Spring Black Tie Gala

This dress was great! Very comfortable, well fitting and you can wear a regular bra. I got the long and wore 3" heels and the length was perfect. The dress hit at my natural waist and was interesting but still still conservative. The lace portions of the dress are not very see through. I absolutely recommend this dress!

Elegant

I rented this dress for a black tie wedding and it was perfect! I got compliments all night on the dress. The pleats in the skirt add a lot more fabric and people said when I turned on the dance floor the skirt would open up and it was beautiful. I ordered a 6 and an 8 as my back up size. The 6 fit but I went with the 8 -- there's a band along the waist and the 8 allowed for a little more breathing room, I wanted to be comfortable so that's why I sized up. Dress is a little long, just have to pick up the fabric when walking up/down stairs, other than that it was fine! Highly recommend this dress

Standout, modern gown.

I rented this dress for a gala, and it was fabulous. It was modern with the contrasting colors, and the skirt had a great flow to it. The length was plenty long for a 5 ' 7" gal like me, and I didn't need a bra. The see-through lace was minimal enough that it didn't show too much. I'd definitely rent this again!

So many compliments, even guys came up and told me how great I looked at this wedding!

LOVED! I was debating between a 2 and 4 and glad I chose the 2 as I didn't want to have to wear a bra since the back is sheer lace and I didn't have to with the tightness and padding. It was a great dress for a wedding as it is classy but interesting with the sheer lace back and little bit of front section too. I'm thinking about ordering it again and keeping it!

Loved this dress and got so many compliments! I have a very large chest and was worried about finding a fun dress that was still classy. This one is the ticket! Roomy and fun to dance in all night. I'm almost 5'10 and was able to wear heels with this dress no problem.

Great dress for a black tie summer wedding.

This dress fits well. I wore the smaller size of the 2 that I ordered, which allowed me to not have to wear a bra. It's different and the skirt twirls beautifully on the dance floor. The only con for me is the lining. As others have described, it's mini-dress length, but it was constantly riding up. If you have a curvy shape on the bottom, be prepared to continuously pull down the lining.

Stunning for a black tie optional wedding!

Received tons of compliments! This dress flowed beautifully and looked elegant. I'm 5'9" and about 147lbs and the 6R fit perfectly with flats. The lace in the back is deceptively thick/dense, so I was able to wear a nude bra and you really couldn't tell. Amazing dress!

Gorgeous gown to officiate my friend's wedding

This dress runs true to size. It was comfortable and flowing on an almost-unbearably hot day. Nice right-at-the-ankle length (I'm 5'6"). Received many compliments from the wedding guests and it was great fun to twirl the skirt on the dance floor. Middle-to-larger breasted women take note: the cross-pattern and built in cups made it easy and attractive to wear without a bra. Because of the sheer panel in back, you would probably not want to wear a traditional or strapless bra with this garment.

Gorgeous and Comfy Gown

I usually wear a Size 2, and this fit like a glove. Although I first ordered it in the solid blue color, it was not available to ship so RTR told me I could pick another dress. They were super nice about it. Everybody loved my dress, and I received countless compliments. It's also a very comfy dress. However, if you are petite like me (5' 3"), this dress is super long even with heels. I had to use lots of temporary hem tape to be able to use it. Overall, it was a great experience and even though the original dress was not available, RTR customer service was amazing.

Elegant dress, perfect fit, so flattering!

I got so many compliments on this dress at the wedding I attended. The lace detail in the back is stunning - I wish I had photos of it! I opted for the 8L because the 6L smooshed my chest a bit too much. The length was perfect with 4" inch heels. I wish I could keep it! Beautiful, comfortable, classic. Loved it.

This dress is 10 stars if not more

My original dress I rented was either damaged or not returned on time so I spoke to customer service and a stylist helped me selected this one as a back up and I was so glad she did (huge blessing in disguise). "I received endless compliments" is an understatement - it was a total showstopper. I did not want to take this off or return it - it's incredibly flattering and makes you feel so glamorous. This dress deserves way more than 5 stars. Note about the fit for shorter ladies like me: at first, I was afraid it might be too long for my petite frame, but with the right heels, you can make it work.

This was the perfect dancing dress and best part...I didn't have to wear a bra!

The arm holes are a bit snug but other than that, it was a great dress for a wedding guest. The pleats flow beautifully and I got compliments all night! I ordered a back-up 10L but the 12R fit perfectly.
