Perfect balance of classy yet slightly sexy
Dress fit great - I am 5'1" and the dress was a tad short when I wore high heels so I wore a lower one and it worked well.

Beautiful illusion dress.
I ordered a 4 and 6r because of my bust size 32F. The 6 was too big but fit the bust better. The 4 fit perfectly but I was a little large for the bust of the dress. I decided to go with the 4 and have a lot of cleavage. The dress was gorgeous and the length was fine for me with 4 in heels, but would have worked with flats too. The slit was high but wasn't an issue sitting or squatting. I just had to be conscientious of it when I did sit and squat.

The dress
It fit really well, had lots of stretch, and was fun and easy to dance in. Normally I'm a 6-8 but the 4 held everything in the best.

Plunging neckline and flattering fit
I rented this in a 6 and a 4, but the 4 fit perfectly. I loved this dress but also rented a second dress that I loved slightly more, so didn't end up wearing this one. It was a hard decision as i loved this one so much! I will rent it again for a future occasion as it was beautiful! I would have taped the top to a bra, just to secure it in place, but the top fit great (size 34C). The slight up the front was sexy and perfect. The length was perfect with 2 inch heels on-- anyone over 5'4 be cautious- as it is shorter than most dresses.

Dress was comfortable but was a little loose in the breast area. Also a bit revealing, and runs a little short and I'm 5'2. Overall the dress was nice

So many compliments on dress!
Very low cut but overall most comfortable formal dress I have ever worn . Length was quite short which worked in my favor as I am petite. Did use dress tape on the bust so that I could dance comfortably without it moving

Beautiful dress but 10 was too big!
This dress was gorgeous. Unfortunately, I couldn't wear it because I needed an 8r and at the last minute it become unavailable. The 10r was way too big in the bust. Probably could've gotten a 6 but it was too late!

Didn't fit right
I wear a size 10 and this dress wasn't able to zip up all the way. The neckline was more plunging than I expected so wasn't suitable for prom with my larger chest!

My worst angle in a pic but great dress
This was a backup dress because the one I ordered got damaged. It was gorgeous. I'm a 36G and it held me in while still showing my cleavage. I adored this dress and got SO MANY compliments. I'd order this again in a heartbeat.

Perfect fit!
This dress was a success. Lots of compliments. The perfect length with 3" heels. Tasteful cleavage. The only criticism was the zipper was a bit worn. But overall a good experience.

One up your LBD
Super Glamorous! Has an old Hollywood feel about it. The dress was very comfortable and not scratchy like some laces can be. Be prepared and get fashion tape to hold it in place. I was worried being a full D but minimal side boob. Everything is in the plunge lol I'd def advise to go bra-less and bring the extra fashion tape just in case. I paired this with a faux fur shawl and it looked more polished than the dress alone for a black tie wedding. Also, mind the slit is in the middle of the front of the dress because some photos looked awkward if standing straight onto the camera FYI otherwise it really isn't a big deal.

Too big and short length
I am 5'4" and this dress would have been too short for any heel in me. Not to mention the top was way huge. I definitely needed the 8 but it wasn't available but I am not sure it would have fixed the top half/strap problem. It was unwearable. Glad I had a second option. The lace material was pretty though.

Great dress if you don't mind showing off the girls!
Rented this for a girls weekend in Vegas. It was great, super comfortable, but low cut...so if you are looking to show off the girls this is a dress for you! I am a 36DD, so the dress can accommodate bigger busted girls, which isn't always the case in RTR dresses.

Perfect for a black tie wedding!
This dress was perfect for the black tie wedding I attended. The fit is great, the material is kinda stretchy so dancing and sitting is no problem! I definitely needed sticky tape to keep the girls in check since it has a very deep plunging neckline. Overall was a great dress. This was my first time renting from RTR and it will not be my last!

Not for the faint of heart
I loved this dress so much, but it was definitely out of my comfort zone. I wore it to the reception portion of my cousin's wedding. I usually wear an 8, but have lost some weight so I was so delighted that the 6 fit! I think it may run a bit large (fine by me!). Having said that, I received numerous compliments and I felt very sexy in this little ditty. I'm glad I wore it! PROS Want to feel sexy? This is the dress for you Comfortable Fit nicely, overall, but see below about chest CONS Very low cut in the front. A bra is not possible, unless you buy the kind that sticks just to your breasts. I wish I'd had any sort of support because I felt I looked a little too "loose." If you are small chested, this dress would be perfect without a bra. If you have larger breasts, find SOMETHING to keep those babies in. Tips: Use fashion tape Stand up straight (the back of the dress seemed to drape and cause it to hang lower in front unless I stood up very straight) Wear SPANX

Absolutely beautiful.
The picture on the model does not do the dress justice. Dress is classy, yet sexy. I was worried about it being too low cut in the front, but it was just fine and tasteful. The slit in the front was higher than I expected, but it was cute.

The perfect dress for our New Year's Eve party!
I loved this dress, and as others have said, I am glad that I also grabbed the size smaller. While the 6R would have fit, the top would have been a little loose and I would have been much more uncomfortable while seated. Luckily, it has enough stretch in it that even the 4R wasn't too tight anywhere else - which I had been a little nervous about. Also, I'm only 5'5", so I didn't have the same issue with the length that some of the reviews mentioned - even with my 4.5" heels. I would definitely rent this again; however, would have to be for the right event. The dress is very low cut and on me would not have been appropriate for a wedding. That said, for the right event - this dress is very sexy and is sure to turn a few heads!

Halter top is huge!
The dress was beautiful, from waist down, very slimming and flattering. Unfortunately, the halter straps were too long and non-adjustable. Absolutely no support, you have to wear a nubra, but even with that, there is no way to keep the halter part secured to your body. I needed to pin it at back at least 3" and didnt want to damage the dress. I'm guessing the dresses I got have been around the block as the halter was so stretched out. I got both an 8 and 6, however couldnt wear either due to it hanging down and exposing my breasts. Too bad, it was very pretty.

This was my "back up" dress in case the other style I ordered in a smaller size didn't fit...it did!
The dress fit well everywhere but the chest. I had anticipated that it might be pretty bare, but my chest simply didn't fill it in enough to wear (gaping). I probably would have needed to go down a size or two. Had I ended up wearing it, the length would have been perfect with a strappy, kitten heel I have from a wedding; otherwise, it would have been too short. Pretty roomy in the chest (large), short on the length (small), and true to size in the waist/hips (fabric was soft and stretchy so sizing down for a smaller chest would be ok, but not sure what that would do for the length...).

Beautiful Dress!
I loved this dress, except for the fact that it was too large in the chest. Because of the very deep V cut neck and the extreme racerback back, it's hard to wear any sort of undergarment with this. Even with a normal C cup chest, I found the dress to be too loose in the chest, even with fashion tape. I think it would fit someone with a larger chest. It definitely is a stunning dress, though!

Classic and sexy!
This dress certainly ran large! Thankfully, I had ordered a size down as a backup. It was beautiful and I received compliments all night. A concern I had initially was that, as someone with a shorter torso, the straps wouldn't fit as well as they should. A safety pin or two later, it fit just fine. As someone with a smaller bust, this was classy and sexy without being too revealing in the top, nor was the slit too high. It was comfortable and the back detail was absolutely gorgeous!

I have never received so many amazing comments on any dress I have worn!
This dress looks more amazing on than in the pictures. Myself and my husband received so many compliments/comments on the dress and I was told several times that I was the best dressed of the night and was asked where it could be purchased! I originally ordered a 6R & 8R, but the dress ran big on the top so I had them send a 4R as a replacement. There wasn't much size difference in the bottom, but the top fit perfect so the dress fit me perfectly. I used the body tape just to ensure the top stayed in place because it does leave a little side boob action :) Overall, amazing dress and experience! RTR customer service is amazing and so helpful!

This dress is really flattering and comfortable, danced the night away easily and got so many compliments! This was my backup dress and the six definitely was too big, but tape and pins helped. Also, customer service for RTR- amazing! so helpful and they were able to ship me a dress immediately. Definitely plan to rent again =)

Beautiful dress. Loved it.
Perfect dress for a wedding or formal affair. It has a plunging neckline, so requires double sided tape, however looks very nice. You should order a size slighly smaller (if between sizes), as I found it to fit slight larger as does all BCBG dresses and clothes for me. I usually wear a 6, but the 4 fit perfectly. With 3in heals, the dress was a good length, maybe slightly short if anything, but great for an outdoor wedding.

I really loved this dress! It was the perfect length for a 3 inch heel and I felt sexy, yet classy all at once. The fit was a little loose so I had to pin the straps with a decorative pin so the dress fit better in the top. Overall, it was a great find!

Helena Bonham Carter Moment!
Healthy dose of cleavage, bit loose up top (wish I had gotten the 6R as backup size as opposed to 10), but still held the girls in. Fabulous dress. Slit up front makes it easy to dance. Highly recommended. Worn with 5 inch heals, black fascinator accessory to black tie NYC wedding.

Rented this for a formal derby party in my 2 usual sizes, 8 and 10. The 8 fit well from the waist down, but the top was awkward. The 10 was just too big in general.

I couldn't use the dress
The dress hugs your hips but is huge on the top. It doesn't support you on top at all and is a stretch material so droops. The 8 was to small on my hips and the top didnt cover fully (but still had no support). Dont know how that happened.

Flattering, sexy dress and pretty comfortable. The lace makes it classy.
I have a large rib cage, so I ended up wearing the 8 because there is no give where the black band is. I wish I could've worn the 6 because it fit in the chest better. There is no slouching in this dress or you may have a bit of a wardrobe malfunction. I probably should have used tape, but it was 100 degrees and I would've just sweat it off. Otherwise the length was perfect and it was pretty comfortable. I did not wear a bra with this but would suggest something for a boost if you need it.

...
I read the other descriptions that the dress is short but figured I'm not tall so I'd give it a shot. Bad choice. The 2 was about 2 inches off the ground before I even put heels on. The 4, while longer, still didnt work at all once I had heels on (about 3" heels). It could have possible worked but I wouldn't have felt comfortable. The chest part was a bit too large in the 4 as well. Thankfully I live in NYC and was able to go to the showroom and get the perfect fit. The only disappointing part about that is I was told that this dress that I wasn't wearing was considered a success so I still had to pay for another rental, meaning paying for two rentals. I would have been 100% satisfied had I been able to not pay for this option.

Beautiful dress but runs short
I was really excited about this dress. I ordered it for my junior prom because I wanted something a little different from the sparkly strapless that everyone seems to wear. However, this dress runs EXTREMELY SHORT so make sure you order the long if your 5'4 or taller. I ended up finding flats and it was ok (still about 1/2 in too long, but this was good for dancing). Overall I loved the dress and was glad I ordered it, but really didn't need the stress of trying to get a new dress (which ended up being too long- go figure:)) and find flat shoes.

Great dress, but very short.
I REALLY wanted to wear this dress, but it came above my ankles. The Long wasn't available, so I was hoping I could get away with the Regular with flats or low shoes. Unfortunately, it was not an option. I am 5'6.5" and usually wear a 4 dress size.

DD and up avoid.
I ordered the dress for a wedding and couldn't wear it because of how it fit. The top of the dress had zero support and was too revealing for the wedding I was attending. So if you are busty - stay away.
