Perfect for Black tie events

I loved this dress! It was slimming and elegant. Not too flashy, but very classy. I received several compliments and was mostly comfortable through the night. I wore the dress for over 12 hours..my only complaint; at the back of the dress where the zipper fastened, the little hook the holds it together, had a small wire protruding just enough to rub a sore on my back bone. I ended up sticking a small soft tissue between my skin and the metal, and that sufficed. Nevertheless, I felt beautiful and loved the dress. Will use RTR again

Beautiful!! So many compliments!

This dress was great! It did run small though. I am typically a 4 but this was REALLY snug. It was great for my grandfather's 90th birthday (I.e. No dancing...) I don't think it would have been good for dancing because this lining on the inside tended to ride up so I was having to pull it down. I'm sure that was partially due to the fact it was a little small. Over all a great dress!!

Perfect Black and White

I wore this to a black and white themed formal event for my boyfriend's school. It for so well and was very flattering. I saw many girls wearing a lot of different black and white dresses from RTR but I was the only one in mine so I felt great. Super stunning dress I would wear it again!

Didn't end up wearing this dress

I looked at this dress 1,000 times before I ended up renting it for a black and white affair. I got a 6R and an 8R. The 6 fit, but was awkward in a few places. It was too big in the bust area and scrunched funny at my waist. I had my boyfriend do the buttons in the back and he said they were a nightmare. The R was a tad short too. I wasn't satisfied with the overall fit, so I got another dress overnighted to me (GREAT customer service!), and I went with that one instead. My pic is of the 8R. Somehow, the 8 fit better and tighter than the 6. It was still a little short. I couldn't have worn more than a 1.5" heel in this dress. As everyone has stated, the top is actually a beige color, which I think an ivory or off-white would be way prettier. It's a gorgeous dress with a beautiful back. It's not too heavy and feels well made. I just really liked my back up dress better.

Dress fit like a glove

The top that should have been cream was more gray. I believe this was due to wear and the cleaning process. It was true to size and fit as though it was made for me. A backless stick on bra is a must for this dress. I received compliments all night long! If you are tall, make sure you get the long, with heels you could still see my shoes and the dress didn't quite glide as I'd like (I'm 5'8").

Sexy and elegant!!

I ended up wearing a different dress to my event, but it was a very difficult choice. This dress is classy and sexy all at the same time. It runs a little tight around the rib cage, but not enough to both me. I will definitely rent this dress for my next formal party.

I felt like a princess! All night I got cute comments

The fit was good! I order size 6R & 8R but I had a small problem with the delivering, I called RTR ASAP for their help, they worked out something for me so I can get my dress before my event and I did!!! I was really happy and thankful. So RTR send me a size 6L & 10L because the other dresses were sent back. I worn the 6L even though I am 5'0, the 4-5inch heel I worn helped me too.

Comfortable & Classy

I saw a few other dresses I liked better, but they weren't available; however, I am SO glad this is the one I chose. I usually fluctuate between a size 4 and 2. I usually pick the 4, but the 2 fit me great! Just snug enough to hug my curves! The fabric is very flattering and of excellent quality! The back is beautiful yet still modest! I wear a 32D and didn't even have to wear a bra.. It was warm out though.. Couldn't have picked a better dress for prom ! It made a statement and was SO easy to dance in! I am 5'4 and wore 4 inch heels and the regular was about a half inch off the ground. I would've liked I longer but didn't have a problem with it.. This is my 3rd time using RTR and they have been fabulous once again!

Great dress. The colors are beige and cream which I was expecting. Compliments all night!!!

This was my first RTR but it won't be my last! My first choice became unavailable but customer service was amazing and got me this dress in plenty of time for my event. The dress looks so amazing in person and I got compliments on it all night long. It runs true to size and the length was perfect. The detailing and the open back are sexy while still being classy and elegant. I will definitely be renting from RTR again soon!!

I felt absolutely flawless in this beauty...worth every penny!

I'm 5'9' 155/160lbs and was initially worried the 8R would be a little short on me (the long wasn't available) but I lucked out. The dress stopped a little pass the ankle...great length for my peep toe heels.

Fit is true to size, but it's short. I am only 5'4, would not have been able to wear heels with it.

This dress was so amazing I absolutely loved it

This dress was so amazing I usually wear a 6 and I'm 5'3" but all they had was a 4R so I ordered another dress for $32.50 and that dress was just as perfect but I took the chance and chose this one and I was thrilled with my choice this fit me like a glove.. I absolutely loved the way it fit and I felt so glamorous in this dress..my husband couldn't stop complimenting all night long, that was a great feeling. I had a great experience from RTR and I will definitely rent another dress.

Dress looks much better in person!!

Perfect length. The chest is a light tan, not white like the picture looks. Also the lace "cut out" is very subtle not as bold and light as the picture suggests. I was able to dance/sit/move perfectly. Also, definite winter dress. The skirt is very thick and kept me warm actually!

Perfect for a black tie dinner

This dress was beautiful and very flattering. The lace detail hit just right on my stomach and flattened my post baby pooch. The top can be a little tricky if you aren't comfortable wearing pasty bras-because you need to definitely wear something but can't wear a real bra because of the back. Overall an excellent dress and experience with rtr!

Beautiful dress! I wore this to a masquerade ball and it looked great.

Fit very well - true to size. Was too long, but I am only 4'11" and expected this. I used some fabric tape for a temporary hem and that worked well.

Too big

Tried this on in the showroom but somehow when it arrived it was too big! Unfortunate because it's a really pretty dress. RTR helped me get another dress last minute so it all worked out, be careful with this dress tho- backless so must fit perfectly

Originally got the 4 bc that's what I usually wear in this designer but it was just a little snug so I was so glad I had the 6 there too. Got so many compliments on the dress!

Sophisticated gown, but color is much different than it appears.

I received this gown and a second backup gown, and I ended up wearing this one to the ball (USMC Birthday). I liked that it was different than the rest - it's not your standard black evening gown. Also, it was a little more flattering and slimming for me, especially around the mid-section where I could use a little help. Black is always slimming, and I think the lines of the lace added to the slimming illusion. Finally, I liked that the dress was modest in the front, but had a touch of surprise and subtle sexiness with the exposed back. But this style may not be for everyone and here are my reasons why: - You cannot wear a bra, so if you are fuller breasted or no longer perky, it may not be the best style. I wore a sticky NuBra that helped with modesty (i.e. prevented any "headlights" from showing") - You cannot wear Spanx that fits above your waist. Some of my other cons: - As the evening wore on I realized that the top did not fit the best. It kept pulling or sliding forward. I would have to adjust it as if I was wearing a strapless gown. I'm not huge on top, but I am full breasted at a 36D. If I could have altered the buttons at the top back piece pulling them tighter/close, I think that would have helped with the fit. - The color is NOT as it appears on the model. The solid bib area is not a creamy white, but a dinghy beige, almost grey color. The lace surrounding the top section is not creamy white either, but it's more of a champagne almost peach color. Reading the other reviews I knew that the color was not cream white, but I expected the lace and solid fabric panel to match much more closely than they did. This was the biggest con for me, and after seeing the pictures of me in the dress, I wish I had worn the other dress. Please don't get me wrong, it's a nice dress, but in hindsight, it probably wasn't the best fit for me and I was disappointed with the color.

Another successful rental:)

I received many compliments on this dress!! I could have worn the 2L but it was a little bit too short, so I decided to wear the 4L. I only gave it 4 stars because I didn't really like the greyish color of the top. I wish it was white. The lace shoulders are actually a goldy-nude color. Overall, the dress was comfortable and flattering.

Classy!

I enjoyed wearing this dress and it was perfect for my black tie event. Please notice in the picture on the site that this is a mermaid style dress with lots of weight at the bottom. The lace at the top is a beige color and the front of the dress is almost grey. The back is open and lacy, but it lays flat when buttoned and zipped. I wore a 10L, I've never worn a 10 before, but it fit through the hips, so it was the right size for me. In the attached pic, I'm 5'6" with 4 inch heels on, so the long was necessary. I got lots of compliments throughout the evening and enjoyed my experience with RTR.

Dress was very classy

Dress is very classy - I wore it to a black tie event attended by top execs at my company and didn't want to show too much skin. It was a little tight but length was good with 3.5" heels. I'm 5'2 and 115 lbs.

Tight but pretty.

I got this dress to wear to a gala. Pros: very pretty, well made, nice material on the heavier side, flowy. Able to sit, stand, and dance. Cut nicely under the arms. Got some compliments but not a lot of "wow's." It was a nice elegant black dress. Cons: runs small if you have big ribs and/or wide shoulders. I normally wear a 6 and the 8 was still too tight (it was hardly bigger than the 4!). I stuffed myself into it as it just fit but did feel like I was being squeezed all night. I was hoping with the open back my bigger rib cage wouldn't have been a problem. Also not as long as I would have liked. I'm 5'9" and with heels it was a tad too short for that finished look where standing still your shoes don't show. Ended up wearing flats. Tip: get ready with a friend. I had a whole taxi ride and 3 block walk with just the top button buttoned and zipper zipped.

did not wear but it was very nice

I did not wear this dress. The 'bob' area is some what grayish and not fresh looking at all. Also the fit was extremely small and we couldn't get it on me! I am a true 4 and with weight on a 6 and this 4 and 6 wasn't making the cut at all. You absolutely need to wear a sticky bra or nipple covers to wear this.

Won the raffle grand prize!

I"m 5'8 with a small waist and disproportionately large boobs. The 4L would've fit from the waist down, but the top wouldn't have been comfy. Even the 6L was a little tight in the top. Wore 3" heels, the long was too short by about an inch. Still got some good love on the dress, though. The back is gorgeous.

Lovely dress, bit of an odd fit.

I absolutely loved this dress when I saw it online, and I've actually seen it in person before, so I was surprised that it didn't fit like I expected after reading reviews. I got the 4R and the 6R after reading reviews- ended up wearing the 4R. My issue was with the chest/shoulder area- I think this dress would look gorgeous on someone with a very flat chest. The shoulder area wasn't as tight as I liked given that I couldn't wear a bra, and I feel like with a large (ish) chest, this wasn't at flattering as it could be. The lace up top is very tan- much darker than it looks in photos. Overall, it was still very comfortable, beautiful fabric, and I got several compliments on it all night. I just wasn't as comfortable in it size-wise as I have been with past RTR dresses. Still a great experience and I highly recommend this dress for someone with a smaller chest.

beautiful dress with just the right amount of "wow"!

as others have described, runs tight through the lower rib cage. I ordered a size larger and glad I did!. Also, I'm only 5-3 and this dress was perfect length (regular length) with my toes peaking out from my 3 inch heels. Usually, regular length is too long for me. I wore a nu-bra which worked really well. I also liked that it was a tad "forgiving" around the abdomen.

Cute. just not what I expected

I normally wear a size 8, but this was snug, and short for me (I'm 5'6). The top appears to be ivory/cream on the website but it is more nude in person. It was not and, just not as "clean looking" as I anticipated (referring to the color).
