Love the cut-outs!
This gown is so unique and flattering! The cut-outs hit in all the right places and the sheer bottom half of the skirt really adds a flowy nature to the structured style. I had a little bit of room throughout the hip area which was nice to balance out the sexy nature of the open back. Loved it!

did you wear any kind of backless bra? do you think this dress would work for someone with a 34DD bra size? I'm also 5'7, would you say the long was too long? sorry for all the questions! thank you!
ElenaDecember 27, 2013
did you wear heels with this? I'm 5'6"without heels and dont know whether to get a 0R or 0L...
MorganFebruary 5, 2014
To tag along on the previous comments....did you wear heels with this? If so, what height? I'm 5'7" and trying to decide whether to get R or L.

Maybe Next Time
This dress was my first pick. I was going to a Black Tie Wedding and wanted a WOW factor dress. I ordered the 0 and 2, because I'm usually a size XS in BCBG. I knew I would probably lean towards the size 2. About 2 days before the event RTR contacted me that the size 2 would not be available and to select another dress free of charge. They still sent me the size 0 in case it ended up fitting. Unfortunately it didn't, however I could tell if I had the size 2... it would have been a KNOCKOUT. This dress is sexy, chic, and for the daring spirit. With 3 inch heels, the size 0 length was perfect. I could zipper up the dress, but the straps dug into my back which was unflattering. The material is thick and stretchy. If the size 2 would become available in the future I would order it in a heart beat.

My favorite dress EVER!!!
I cannot tell you how much I loved this dress!! I'm 5'4" and was worried about it being too long. I wore 4 inch platform heels and it was perfect! The dress fit like a glove and I received so many compliments. Sizing runs true to size. This is an absolutely stunningly beautiful dress!

I would buy this dress in every color of the rainbow
This dress is absolutely stunning. So many compliments! If it came in different colors I might seriously it in all of them and never wearing anything else to a formal event ever again. If it came in white it would even be the perfect casual beach wedding dress! Don't let the skin factor and cut-outs scare you, this dress no joke makes you look ten pounds skinnier. Both the 2R and 4R fit. The arm straps pretty loose on the 4 but the back straps were a little tight on the on the 2 so went with the 4. I wore a NuBra type backless bra, but it also could work braless. The back straps are stretchy and are comfortable for a long night.

The dress runs very true to size and if you're worried about fit, most BCBG stores have the dress in stock so you can try it on before you order it. The dress has a little bit of stretch and was very comfortable. I received compliments all night long and everyone loved the open back. I felt beautiful!! I definitely recommend this dress for your formal affair!!

The 4R dress fit perfectly! It fit tight in the shoulder area as another review pointed out. But I was able to dance the night away! The 4R was a little short in length with my heels. I word 4IN heels and it was perfect. Rent this dress, and you won't be disappointed.

I absolutely loved this dress!
I wore this for a formal wedding in LA, I needed a long gown but wanted it to be different. This fit perfectly. I'm athletic and thought my shoulders might not fit in the cap sleeves but they were fine. I am small chested so I wore a NuBra with the dress to give me some push up, but the fabric is thick enough that you don't have to wear a bra.

I'm 5,11 and about the same bust size as you. I am thinking about renting this for a gala. What size heel did you wear with this dress? Thanks!

Sexy and classy in one!
I rented this for a black tie wedding and got so many compliments!! It was sexy and fun but still really classy and the longer length- chiffon/flowy material on the bottom made it pretty and girly too. It was comfortable. I am only 5'0 and the 2Petitie length was perfect with heels which is exciting because I usually can't rent long from RTR. The only "negative" is the bra situation- make sure to plan ahead. I personally went braless and used the tape/pasties RTR sent me with the dress. I just ordered this dress to have for my own collection- I loved it that much!

The dress was pretty awesome, but unfortunately they didnt have the 2r so I was stuck with the 2L but it still worked out great with heels!!! Buy a the stick on bra so your boobs fit!

This dress was awesome!
I got a ton of compliments on this dress and loved wearing it. It fit really well - I wore the 2L and it fit basically perfectly. It was fairly true to size, though I would have found the regular size too short with 4-5" heels. I would definitely recommend using this dress for your next formal event.

The cutouts are very sexy and this dress hugs an hourglass figure perfectly!
Perfect dress for one looking to turn heads and get compliments! Tailored more towards smaller boobs (at the time, I had a A/B cup). The hip hugging fit is perfect for an hour glass figure. This is a great dress to walk around in but not to do excessive moving.... Loved this dress!

WOW! This dress was amazing, it was formal but also sexy, perfect for any formal party!
My only issue with this dress was the bust, as a DD it was hard to keep them in with the minimal support. I just slapped on some sticky boobs so they were the only thing people would see. It was annoying but the dress was worth it!

Felt like a movie star in this dress. I got compliments from all of my friends and even strangers!
I loved this dress, the material is thicker so you don't have to wear a bra. It looks very expensive and classy, but still really fun and edgy because of the cut outs. The 6 fit better up top but was too tight around my hips. The 8 fit great all over but the zipper is stuff and kind of popped out at the top of my back. The zipper on the 8 also kept coming apart... May need to be replaced. Otherwise it was literally perfect!!!!

Did not feel rented...very pretty dress.
I would like to have worn the 8, but because I am a pear, the bottom half of me needed the 10. I am a 34C and found the top half a tiny bit loose. I often adjusted so I wouldn't have bottom cleavage. In hindsight, I would've used garment double-sided tape to ensure proper placement and no shifting. I did not wear a bra and would not have been able to anyway. The bottom is not as sheer as it looks on the model. It does have a hint of stretch. Very, very comfortable, appeared brand new, smelled new. Rental process was amazingly seamless and exactly as advertised. I loved this dress and got many compliments. Very sexy gown...

Felt like a million bucks!
This dress is STUNNING! I wore it to an elegant wedding in Keystone, CO and I have never gotten so many compliments on a dress before. I really felt like I stood out from the crowd. The cutouts made the dress very unique and sexy while the structure and fabric gave it a high quality, classic feel. I normally wear a size 0 but because I am so short, I figured the 0R would be too long. I ended up ordering the 2P since there was no 0P available. It was a little big in the hips and shoulders but I was glad I got this size because it was the perfect length with 4 inch heels. I wasn't able to wear a bra with this dress but I felt very comfortable just having sticky tape on the chest area. I loved this dress so much I didn't want to return it! If I could find this dress in a 0P, I would buy it immediately.

Makes a statement!
Four months after having my first baby, my husband and I were to attend a friend's wedding (our first outing since the baby). I wanted to have a dress to motivate me to get in shape... This dress was the motivator! Sexy yet elegant. The dress gives your body a great shape. Only critique is the thigh area is a little snug which limited my boogieing on the dance floor. The 8R fit better around the thighs yet the back strap was too big and bulged out. The 6R fit perfectly on the upper body and back. I also recommend fashion body tape to prevent showing side boob. I often had to adjust myself.

This dress is really comfortable and has such a wow factor, i got so many compliments... and almost won RTR style awards :( .... would def recommend... for a fun black tie event! I am 5'11 and the 8L front did not hit the ground but the back had extra length-- it has a high-low hem line--- so cute shoes are required bc they will show.

Definitely a head-turning dress. I had to pick my boyfriends jaw off the floor when he saw me.
This dress is very form fitting and a total knockout. If you want the guys to stare and the girls to envy you, this is the dress. I had so much fun in this and received many compliments. It is a little tight and I had a little trouble trying to use the restroom with it on since I have more junk in the trunk but managed to figure it out.

This DRESS, my beautiful friend getting married, the fun guests and my handsome date!
I was really worried that the dress wouldn't fit me through the bust because I have larger boobs and a strong back. However, the straps have elastic sewn into them so it allowed for a little stretch. I have never received so many compliments on a dress in my life! I felt bad because I know all of my friends wanted to borrow it. The only con was the bottom of the dress getting stepped on while dancing. I should have held it up on the dance floor. The fabric is so light and thin that it really needs to be kept away from the floor.

AMAZING! Perfect for the event and fit perfectly.
Fit was perfect - it was a tiny bit big in the shoulders but fit around my waist perfectly. The dress was a little long on me but with heels it worked out OK. I thought it would be showing a lot of skin but the dress was VERY classy. Received a ton of compliments!

Show-Stopping Gown
This was such a great dress. Perfect body skimming fit. The 2R was long, but 4inch heels took care of that. Just a note- if you lift weights or have larger arms the, shoulder st raps fit snugly over tri/biceps

This dress was amazing!
Fit like a glove! I went with the 4L because the 2 was a little tight in the chest and I wanted to be able to dance without worrying I was popping out! I didn't wear a bra and it worked out perfectly. The 4L was a little long but I was afraid of the regular being to short, so I just looked like I was gliding along all night! So many compliments this night!

I was getting compliments all night long! It was an amazing dress.
I'm 5'10" and ordered the Long. It fit perfect with heels on, but I always change into flats during the reception. With flats on, it was actually a tad too long. If wearing with heels it's the perfect length.

perfect mix of classy & sexy
Absolutely loved it!! Wore this for a black tie holiday party. Fit is true to size but beware of side boob. I didn't wear a bra with it & felt fairly comfortable but did find myself checking. Dress is very fitted through the hips and shoulders so probably not the best pick if you're planning to do a ton of dancing... but it's very slimming especially for those with larger hips like myself. Note that it's longer in the back than the front so depending on your height, either the regular or long lengths could work for you. I'm 5'7", wore 5" heels and the dress just hit the floor in the front. Would definitely recommend this rental!

Loved the cutouts in this dress
Beautiful and fun dress, but I didn't realize I had side boob showing until I left the house. I probably should have worn the 4, but that was a little too big on the bottom part. Overall, the dress was great. Just be careful that it will shift around on the top part

Beautiful, statement dress...
I so wanted this dress to fit, but I kinds knew it may be too big in my upper body, and it was, I normally wear a 0 due to being small in my bust and upper torso, but they only had the 2R available., The dress was also a little loose in the mid-section too,. I showed my boyfriend the dress and he said he preferred the backup dress anyway! I would love to try this dress in the 0R next time... I am wearing the back up dress instead for New Year!
