Classy, soft, understated by color, with a little bit of sexy.
I rented this dress VERY last minute...and although there was little dresses to choose from, this dress was a newer style so I was one of the first to try it. With no reviews or pictures, I was taking a risk. Well, the risk payed off, and I felt like a celebrity on the red carpet in this dress. Its so classy and understated, yet has a little edgy side with the sheer and lace top. Its thin, flowy, and extremely comfortable. Nothing about it felt tight or stiff, just accentuated the right areas and helped out in others. Highly recommend this dress. I loved wearing it!

wore to an awards dinner; received many compliments
top half was very comfortable and surprisingly modest. bottom had several layers, the innermost was extremely short, which I did not love. not exactly the color I anticipated, but the color in-person (lavender) was lovely all the same.

Wore to a work gala
Ordered a 4 and 2. Either would work the 2 looked a little better and slimming. Length was great with 4 inch heels. First time renting and writing review since it helped me so much.

Great back up dress
I was sent this dress for a back up and it made for a tough decision! I ended up not wearing this for this certain affair but I will definitely be renting it for a future event. The top is beautiful!

A million compliments!
A beautiful, figure-flattering gown. A gorgeous mauve-purple rose color with just the right amount of sex appeal. The dress flows along as you walk, i felt like a princess! I recommend this for taller girls and it may be slightly problematic for those with bigger chests as that middle part of the bodice is a see through mesh. The bottom of the dress is also a see through gauze type material but the built in slip covers to mid thigh and the material is substantial enough that it looks like full coverage.

I recently gain a lot of weight in my mid section so this dress was way too tight around my stomach.
This dress would look better on someone with a small waist and big bust. it is way too long for someone my height even I had 3 inch heels on.

Perfect for spring wedding
I rented this dress for a black tie wedding in March. Perfect length and fit- I am 5'3", about 100 lbs and wore the 0. There were built in cups bc you cannot wear a bra due to the sheer panels in the front and back. Very comfortable, loved this dress!

The dress made me feel like royalty!
The dress runs true to size. I have a larger chest and might hesitate to get it again just because it felt a little snug up top. The style is very flattering though so I made it work with some fashion tape! The slip under the dress is a little short so it rides up some when dancing. Even though there was some adjusting needing to be made throughout the night the dress was very much worth it. I felt very beautiful.

The color was beautiful and i loved the lace details and skirt. The slip under the dress is a little short but that's my only complaint. The dress fits really well and complemented my body type.

Felt amazing & comfortable! win win!
AMAZING DRESS! received so many compliments, about how tastefully "sexy" it was with the low cut. Im usually weary about not wearing a bra, but the build of this dress was very supportive and comfortable! Light weight, gorgeous color, flattering and forgiving on waistline area. Just be careful of the slip, because its a smidgen short and rode up a little while dancing. Overall zero disappointments with this dress!

Loved this dress!!! Super flattering!!!
This dress was amazing!!! I felt wonderful in it! Super flattering for my body type! Got tons of compliments all night! I typically wear a size 4, but sized down to a 2 so it would fit a little snug up top considering you can't wear a bra. Sooooo comfortable! My experience with RTR was fabulous and I would definitely do it again!!

Black Tie Outdoor Spring Wedding
This was THE MOST comfortable dress. Perfect length for heels. Slightly shorter in the front so you don't step all over it. And Longer in the back. No Bra necessary due to the super thick lining in all the right places. Got lots and lots of compliments. Absolutely loved this dress!

RTR was extremely easy to use and, because I'm extremely indecisive, very flexible with my order.
Originally I had at least 3 other dresses picked out for my prom, but after trying this dress on in store I decided I had to rent it. The dress felt like it was made for me, no bra needed and no uncomfortable bunching. It was a little long, considering i am only 5'4", with heels, but that was the only problem. I highly recommend this dress for any formal occasion.

This dress is so much more than the model image!!
I didn't order this dress based on the stock photo. It really did nothing for her. But I ordered it because of how great it looked on all the customer reviews. And it was just beautiful in person! I felt special and elegant and like one of a kind for a large event. Another plus for me, I got away with 3 1/2in shoes which made for happier feet. And things usually are so so long on me, I was nervous. But it was perfect! I'd imagine though that it made not sweep the ground for taller girls (I'm 5'3").

The long is long, but the length is mostly in the back, so I wasn't tripping over the fabric.

Loved the unique color and light, flowy material. Super comfy and very flattering on.
Dress is true to size and was perfect for the black tie wedding I attended. Very comfortable for dancing-- only thing to point out is it does have a small train which can trip you up and get stepped on a bit. Overall highly recommend! Top is supportive enough, no bra necessary.

Very pretty, but tough if you don't fill the chest perfectly
The dress runs slightly on the larger side. The neck plunge is so deep that you can not wear any kind of bra without it showing. There are cups in the dress but you need to have bigger breasts to fill it out. The slip is very short and does ride up quite a bit. This dress would not work for someone who is very modest.

Great dress, comfortable, lots of compliments.
Overall the dress was great and very comfortable and flattering, but its really hard to wear any sort of bra with it due to the sheerness down the middle. I'm 5'9" and wore 3 inch heels and got the longer length, I still sort of felt like I was tripping over the length of the dress, so if you are considering getting the extra length I think with heels you would need to be about 6'0"+ because the bottom of the dress is very flow-y.

Stunning and different!
I wore this dress to a black tie wedding and received so many compliments! I am short (5"2') and with a good sized heel it worked out fine length wise. The other reviews were right on about it being narrow through the hips so if you have hips and are curvy order a size up! I was nervous about my chest fitting and staying put but with cutlets it helped keep me in place although I did have to adjust quite a bit. Overall this was a gorgeous dress and I was comfortable. Would recommend it!

Such a comfortable dress! Really elegant and easy to wear.
The front of the dress is really sheer! Cleavage is exposed The dress is longer in the back so I was really conscious about not stepping on the material

Beautiful romantic dress
This fit true to size and was super flattering. It provided enough support that I didn't need a bra (and couldn't have worn one due to the cut out). The dress has a little train in the back that I ended up having to carry around most of the night. I might have liked the regular length better in retrospect.

The dress was beautiful and the color/style was unique compared to other dresses!
I wore this dress to my senior prom. It came in the afternoon of the day i ordered it for. It was beautiful! I tried it on in the BCBG store and I loved it, but not the price! I knew it was on RTR so I ordered it soon after! The four day rental is great and the extra size is too! I tried it on in a 4 but ended up wearing the 2. The fit was great, perfect length (I didn't even wear heels!) color and style was unique!! Everyone loved it! Plus it got the mom approval! Thank you for the beautiful dress!

Fits like a dream! The color is wonderful and the lace is so pretty. The fit is extremely flattering too. I am quite busty so I was worried about it being unsightly, but I had great cleavage without being too "charming"

I have never gotten so many compliments in my life!
This dress was absolutely amazing. I got compliments on it all night long. I am 5'2" but even without heels the dress didn't drag too much. It was perfect with four inch heels (therefore making me about 5'6"). This dress is sophisticated, elegant, and subtly sexy. I never wanted to give it back. Some other reviews say the slip is too short and that is true, however it really did not bother me all that much. I have never received so many compliments in my life and it fit like a glove.

Stunning, sexy and so comfortable!
The 2R was perfect in every way. Length was great in 3" heels. The sexy lace bust was a showstopper that was still very tasteful. Perfect dress for a formal spring wedding. Super forgiving in the tummy and so comfortable - it was like I was wearing the most comfortable thing in my closet. My boyfriend said he thought it was the best dress he's ever seen me in!

You can't help but feel elegant
This dress fit like a glove, was comfortable to wear all night and I received compliments throughout the night (including one from a pro-baseball player's wife). It has a hint of sexy because of the sheer panel between the breasts but is not indecent. My breasts are a little larger right now post-baby and I felt very comfortable. If you are an athlete or former swimmer I would size up to accommodate an athletic back. The slit is just right and I never felt as though I was about to have a wardrobe malfunction. I didn't realize I picked out the long but the length worked well with 3" heels for me. I picked out this dress in the Georgetown store after I had to swap out for a different dress that didn't fit me. I'm glad I had to do it. The Georgetown store staff were very helpful, professional and attentive. The selection there was great and I loved this gown more than the original I requested.

Unique color and style, but beware of cleavage and train
Pros: lovely lace; do not need a bra; true to size; unique color; I got several compliments on the dress Cons: front is totally sheer (which I did not fully realize when I ordered) and I felt very self conscious all night as a result; the train in the back is on the long side, so you will be picking it up all night; the color, while lovely, would look better on probably a tanner skin tone; the swooping in front make the skirt hand a little oddly, might be better for women with some hips to accentuate those curves. I wore this dress a few months post pregnancy, and did not feel like it really hid any of it

Fantastic dress!
I thought the dress was great. It was form fitting, but was not tight and was very comfortable and flattering. I wore this dress to a rooftop wedding in NYC. I received a ton of compliments on the dress all night long! I'm pretty short, and I would say the dress was a little long, even in 4-5 inch heels, so be mindful of that, but I made it work. I would recommend renting this dress!

I felt like a Greek goddess!
The dress was fairly true to size, however it didn't fit me as well in the chest. I usually wear an 8, but I had to wear the 10 so that it wouldn't tear at the chest or anything. It ended up being the perfect dress for the prom and I was told many times that I looked like a Greek goddess! Beautiful and comfortable, I would definitely recommend this dress!

Beautiful dress for a beautiful wedding!
So I originally ordered this dress in a 4R but was notified a few days before my event that it was damaged. They sent me 2 backup dresses that I did not like and I requested the 4P but the 2R (my backup size) ended up working perfectly! I would usually never opt for a dress that I can't wear a bra with, but I'm glad I did. It was very faltering and tasteful and made me feel like a princess!

Beautiful dress!
I'm usually between a 6L and 8L in BCBG (closer to the 8). The long wasn't available, so I wore the 8R. It was a bit short but fit perfectly on top and was loose in the hips - I'm not sure if this was because the proportions were a little off on me or if a 6L may have ended up fitting better. Either way, it's a beautiful dress - elegant and sexy, forgiving if you've got a gut, and comfortable! I ended up having to switch my delivery from Friday in Manhattan to Saturday in NJ due to some last minute travel changes, and RTR was on the ball to make the change. The only issue was that this dress was incredibly wrinkled upon arrival. Luckily it allows for a warm iron and I was able to make it wearable, but definitely not the quality I've had before. This was also the first time I'd had a delivery outside NY, and it arrived in a box rather than a garment bag - so maybe it's par for the course outside the city.

Felt and looked amazing !
I love this dress it's a very beautiful grown. I had the opportunity to try it on in the store first before renting it. I got tons of compliments and i felt amazing wearing it. My only non important thing would be, the dress kinda bothered me from dancing, but i didn't let that stop me at all. I had fun and i enjoyed wearing the dress.

cute and feminine
I liked the dress. The color is more of a lilac (grayish lilac almost) in real life. Bra is difficult because of the gap down the chest. Lace is too light for no bra so I would do stickies. Chest area is kind of tight so if you have bigger boobs be prepared for cleavage. The waist area was a little to big, but it looked much better when I sewed the waist in so it rested at a higher point (stitches are easy to remove).

This dress is beautiful!! I got tons of compliments all night. I felt comfortable and pretty!
The dress is very comfortable to wear. The draping in the front hides anything you need to hide! The only problem I had was the straps, they seemed to be lose and I felt like I had to keep pulling them up. I am pretty short at 5'2" and the petite was the perfect length.

Great customer service
Reviews of dress are accurate. Super flattering. Hid any tummy trouble. But if you're big busted, it's boobs galore! Very pretty dress. Cons: definitely seemed used. There was a stain on right back side so I couldn't wear either dress due to quality issues but RTR was on top of it, amazing service and I'm expecting to be refunded.

I got MANY compliments on this beauty!!
I can honestly say that the reviews on this dress helped me decide whether or not this would be my candidate for this black tie affair. It was light. Airy. It was a little busty for my taste (i'm a 34DDD) but was classy at the same time. The slit was perfectly places and the color was to DIE for! i have pretty broad shoulders but the shoulder strap thingies were slightly big but if you've ever rented a BCBGMaxazria dress, this runs pretty true to size. The only reason it isn't getting 5 stars from me is because it was slightly too boob-y for me and i wasn't really comfortable with that part but if i had a dollar for every time i was called a "Greek Goddess" (i'm greek) that night, i'd be on my way to vacay! LOVED THIS DRESS!

Dress was beautiful, yet comfortable to wear for a more formal wedding setting. The top of the dress provides a slimming corset effect and keeps everything in place. Would definitely love to wear this dress again.

Perfect for a black tie summer wedding! Felt beautiful, classy, sexy.
Great dress for a black tie summer wedding. I felt beautiful, classy and sexy. I felt like this dress was very flattering for my body shape (hourglass). I am short (5'2") and wore 4 inch heels, and the dress was still a bit longer than I wish it was. The color is a rich purple, not violet like in the photos. You will need some fashion tape and you cannot wear a bra with this dress. I very highly recommend!!
