Drop-dead-GORGEOUS dress!

I loved this dress so much. Very true to size. I am 6'1" so I ordered the tall. I wore heels and still did not feel like it was too short. The skirt material is very soft and flows behind you as you walk. I got so many compliments and felt classy yet sexy. Would definitely rent again!

Beautiful long dress

This is a gorgeous dress. I had tried it on in another color at Bcbg, but would recommend ordering it blind as it is very flattering. My suggestion is to fit it to your top well as you can't wear a bra.

Love this dress. Great fit. Love the shear flowy shirt and the cut out/shear design on the top. The fit was perfect for my height.

Beautiful dress! I got so many compliments

The size 2 fit me perfectly, unfortunately the regular length wasn't available. I wore 5" heels for the ceremony and photos but then ended up going barefoot for the reception and safety pinning it up. I was able to wear a strapless nude bra.

STUNNING! And looks EXPENSIVE!

I wore this dress at a wedding and I love how stunning this looks on me. It looks expensive, sexy, and definitely a head-turner. I was worried about the fitting because I'm a regular size 4 but only 4P was available and even though it's a bit tight on top, it was still wearable. If you are flat chested like me and want to wear a bra, you can still wear a convertible bra.

I thought I'd look like a black formal version of Marilyn Monroe.

I would have loved to have worn this dress. I think it would fit someone with a longer waist line. Maybe a bit less curvy than me. I thought I'd try it, but it didn't love my curves. Dang it.

Absolutely stunning dress, i wish it wasn't too small!

I ordered this dress but they didn't have the bigger size up so I took a chance. Unfortunately although everything else was perfect and the dress was beautiful, the waistband was just too tight. The 6 would have worked well. I definitely still recommend the dress but make sure you get the size up just in case! I was to rent it again in the 6 if I have another occasion to go to.

Stunning! Favorite RTR Dress thus far!

People were asking me to twirl all night long so they could get a good luck at this stunning dress. The fabric was breezy, perfect for a summer formal affair. The pleats are gorgeous and the dress flows through the back. The lace is such a delicate detail. Very comfortable and compliments your figure perfectly. I am pregnant and in my first tri and I'm just starting to show so I wanted something that hid my little tummy well and this did. No one had a clue until I told them. This is the first dress I felt sad to send back. <3 <3 <3

Not only elegant & sexy but comfortable as well.

I absolutely love this dress and received so many compliments on the dress. It was the perfect combination of class and sexy. I generally wear size 2 dresses but the size 2 was sold out. I went with the 4P which ended up being very comfortable. Although it was not a tight fit around my waist no one would have noticed. I'm 5'2" and wore 3.5 inch heels. The dress just hit the floor perfectly. It's hard to send this dress back as I received so many compliments in it (even from the bride herself). I would recommend this dress and rent it again!!

Great customer service, dresses in perfect shape!

I am 5'2 ½ and the 4P was almost too short. I had to wear flats for the dress to touch the ground. Also, the waist was tight and not at all stretchy! I am a 34 C and didn't have to wear a bra so that was great!

Really pretty, but runs a little tight/small!

This dress was so fun and perfect for my engagement pictures! The skirt underneath and the band around the waist run small and were fairly tight on me - I ended up wearing a size 8 whereas I normally wear a 6. I was able to wear it without a bra. Overall, I'm really happy I chose it!

Pretty dress, tight waist band

This dress was very pretty, however there is a very unforgiving waist band that will cut you right in half. I wanted to wear this, but it was uncomfortably tight around my ribs. If you would like to wear this one, I strongly recommend going one size up. If there's a chance you will be having a large meal while wearing this dress, go 2 sizes up.

Beautiful dress. Definitely got noticed without being over the top. I felt lovely.

This dress was quite long on me (although I'm short with short legs, so that wasn't that surprising). Had to wear 4.5" heels and still skimmed the ground. Also, not entirely clear from the picture, but the bottom of the dress is shear as well as the cut out portions of the top-they are lined, but shear. Just FYI.

Sultry, Elegant and Oscar-worthy

It was very comfortable, elegant and had just the right amount of sexy with the sheer bottom and lace cutouts in the top. It's easy to move around in and I didn't have to worry about falling out or readjusting all night. The waist is a bit tighter fitting than the rest so having the extra size 6 was perfect. If i didn't have a large chest i could have gone without a bra but i needed some extra support so a backless bra did the trick (the back is opaque). This dress stands out, but not in an over the top way - in a very unique, sexy way. I'm 5'11" wore 6L and 2.75 inch heels. It worked out great. I could have gone with 2 - 2.5 inch heels and probably been okay as well. 2.75 is probably the max someone should go. All in all this dress was beautiful and so fun to wear! OH and it's also great for dancing since your legs have room to roam - and that bottom is fun to whip around!

This was a classy, but sexy dress that was really stunning!

I was so happy with this dress for the Endymion Extravaganza at Mardi Gras. I normally wear a 4 or a 6 in dresses, and I think I could have worn either size but the 4 was a slightly better fit in the chest. The lace panels have a nude-colored lace layer under the sheer black lace, so it is slightly see-through, but not as much as you might think. It creates a perfect sexy effect without being too risque. One thing to watch about this dress is that only the sheer chiffon layer goes all the way to the floor, so I was a little worried about stepping on it and ripping it and had to hold it up whenever I walked.

Beautiful, perfect fit for the occasion, and comfortable!

I felt great in this dress! My friends thought it was stunning. I love the peakaboo cut outs and the back is beautiful. I wore it to a masquerade gala and was able to dance all night comfortably. I'm 5'6" and the length was perfect with my 3" heels. I'd rent it again!

Loved the dress! Its absolutely beautiful.

I wore this dress to a formal event. It was absolutely stunning. The lace has sheer panels under it so it doesn't actually expose skin. I also loved that the skirt under was short and then had the sheer long pleated bottom. The pleated skirt also moved beautifully and the tight top and flowy skirt was definitely slimming. I got a 4L and wore about 3 inch heels with it. The length was perfect with that, however the waist did hit slightly above my actual waist. The top was also slightly tight on me but it wasbt too much of a problem.

Perfection! Breezy and wonderful to dance in.

The top of the dress was very from fitting (even for A cup me) but I would suggest wearing a nude bra because the cut of the dress isn't flattering for braless. The back isn't too low at all. There is fine nude mesh behind the lace that made me feel more covered and also free to wear a bra! The half-lining was the perfect length and made dancing breezy. The pleated skirt is beautiful and flowing and makes you look very tall because of the vertical lines. The waistband was a little tight and I wish I had been able to try on a 6L. I absolutely loved this dress though and got so many compliments! It stood out as being different and a little edges without going over the top.

I loved wearing this dress. I felt so confident and beautiful.

Everything fit perfectly from the top, around the hips, to the length with 3 inch heels. I loved the cut-outs, they felt really sexy without being too revealing. I would highly recommend this dress.

Perfect fit and perfect dress

This has been one of my favorite dresses. It fit me like a glove and flowed oh so nicely. It was quite long but with about 3 1/2, 4 inch heels it just grazed around my shoes. The pleats in the skirt just made it swish and sway so prettily. I loved the cutouts and how they were lined with a nude color. I wore a strapless bra and it didn't show. I added some neon jewelry to make it more springy and youthful. I loved this dress and I wish I had another place to wear it!

Lace detail is beautiful!

I loved the lace detail on this dress! It added some sexiness while still being covered. This was my back up dress and I decided to wear the other dress. One thing I didn't realize is that the lining only hits to the knee on the dress so it is somewhat sheer from the knee down. You can't really see this on the photos, so it's something to be aware of. It also ran a little long - I'm 5'8" and was wearing 4" heels. The 6L fit perfectly me on the top but because of the length, I would have tried to fit into the 4L and suffered with it being a little tight to get the right length. Just something to keep in mind when selecting size & length.

I wore this dress to my high school prom. I got compliments on my dress the whole night!

The fit ran very true to size. I recommend a bra with adhesive sides because it holds on better when the dress is fully zipped up. Also, the sheath lining underneath the skirt doesn't show any panty lines!

Classy and elegant. Received many compliments.

I usually wear a 4 or 6 in regular dresses, so I got both the sizes. The band at the waist is a little snug and the skirt underneath the sheer overlay was a tab bit short, but I am 5'8". The 6 fit well and I felt great all night. If you're tall, might want to go a size up, due to the shortness of the under skirt.

Hey Ashley! I was wondering if the dress fit loose at all in the bodice area or was it perfectly there or a little snug? I am usually a size 00 so I want to make sure getting a 0 won't be too loose.

This dress was just gorgeous! So unique and stunning!

I rented this for one of two prom dress rentals. I was nervous about getting my dress the day before prom, and was super worried that they wouldn't work out. Well, boy was I wrong. Both dresses were PERFECT, and it was almost impossible to decide which one to wear. So I decided to wear them both at different times during the night! This dress made me feel so beautiful. I loved the mini underneath the long pleats. The criss cross top was very flattering, and I loved the lace. I didn't feel too exposed! I would highly recommend this dress for any prom or black tie event!

Compliments all night!

I found that the dress ran true to size and it fit comfortably in the bust area. I did not have to wear very tall heels with the 6R, and I am a fairly short person. The dress was so flowy and perfect for dancing in. I would definitely rent this again, and I recommend it for anyone hoping to look elegant at their formal event.
