Fits true to size. I had to hold it up a bit, but it was still so fun and comfortable to dance the night away! Absolutely loved this dress!

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.

glamorous; loved the lace details.
i wore this dress to my boyfriend's brother's wedding and wanted to wear something that wasn't "too sexy", but that i still felt pretty in. i received compliments all night! the lace panels are lined with nude fabric so you're not showing too much skin, and i love that you can get away with not wearing a bra if you're smaller-chested. you can't really tell in photos, but the opaque lining of the skirt is mid-thigh length underneath the full-length chiffon, which i thought was a really pretty touch. i wore it with heels during the day and changed into sandals for the reception and it looked great with both; however, keep in mind that you can see your shoes through the sheer fabric so wear some cute ones!

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!

Looooved this! One of my favorites!
This dress fit so well and was such a sexy alternative to a regular black dress. The top was sexy but still classy. The dress flowed beautifully and the length was perfect. I was sad to take this off at the end of the night. Dont mind my husband in the photo, he thought it was cute trying to pose like me ;-)

Beautiful, But Not Wearable
This dress was gorgeous. However, I was not able to wear it because the skirt underneath was way to loose. Every time I moved the under skirt would pull up, and, since the over skirt is see through,, you could see EVERYTHING! I even tried double sided tape, but that didn't help much. Had the underskirt been fitted or a heavier fabric, I think it would have worked. I was so terrified that everyone would be looking at my undies the whole night, and I wouldn't know!

Very flattering dress that is surprisingly comfortable to wear, great dress for a black tie event
Found out shortly before my event that my usual size 2 was not available. RTR sent me some additional back-up dresses, but I found that the size 4 was only a bit loose and went with my original dress. I wore it with 3" heels and the length was perfect. The top and neckline are very flattering and comfortable, and the bottom flows beautifully. The only con is that you have to be careful when taking pictures with flashes because of the short underlayer and sheer skirting- some of the professional photographs with bright flash were not very flattering because of how the layers sit in different positions. A great dress!

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.

Amazing dress- fit like a glove
Fit true to size and was in perfect condition. Easily wore a nude strapless bra. It was a sexy yet classy dress for a black tie wedding. Only con- 6R was too short for the shoes I planned to wear. I'm 5'4" and planned to wear 6in platform pumps but it was too short. I ended up having to wear 3-4 inch heels for the dress to barely skim the ground.

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 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.

Nothing but compliments all night
I was a little nervous ordering this dress since my back-up size was unavailable but was so glad I went for it! I don't think I have ever received more compliments on something I've worn. Strangers were pulling me aside all night to let me know how much they loved the dress and even the day after, people remembered it. I will note that as some others have mentioned, it is really long and you definitely need a sticky bra on hand for this dress (or you can honestly forego a bra altogether) . I wore 3.5" heels with this dress, which made it the perfect length.

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!

Fun to Dance In this Dress!
I wore this dress to an evening wedding and it was almost perfect! I say almost perfect, because the waistband was very unforgiving which is why I wore the wide belt to cover up the fact I was practically being squeezed into this dress like a sausage...the length was perfect for me, I'm 5'4" and wore 4 inch heels but the dress did not drag on the floor at all. The skirt was fun to play with on the dance floor too and I got lots of compliments.

Contemporary but classic for charity gala.
This dress is very elegant, and the sheer/lace sections make it sexy without being too over the top. Note the lace detail isn't as sheer as it appears in the picture, there is a relatively thick nude lining behind it. I wore the 4L, because I wasn't able to get a 6L on time. The dress is very snug in the waist area and I probably would have worn the 6 had I gotten it, however it wasn't too big of an issue. Definitely no room for a bra if you are chestier, although I'm not sure if there is a bra that would work under this. I'm 5'9" and wore 3" heels, and the dress (in the long option) just barely skimmed the floor.

Incredibly flattering and elegant! My boyfriend said he felt like he was with a supermodel!
Perfect for a more conservative event where you still want to look sexy! The light fabric moves really well and is fun to dance with. The sheer look is very subtle and looks great. Can be a little static-y, but that's easily resolved with a bit of hairspray. The slip underneath is a bit short while sitting. I ordered it in the size 2 and 4 and i was surprised that both fit (the 2 was a bit more snug around the waist, but still comfortable enough to wear).

Compliments from everyone at the wedding!
Gorgeous gown, excellent fit, a few snags in the fabric but nothing noticeable. Wore to a black tie wedding and was complimented by everyone on how elegant and beautiful I looked. Aside from being very comfortable I felt beautiful and sexy without showing a lot of skin. Would definitely recommend! Note: I usually wear a 4 vs 2 b/c of a larger rib cage.

I had the best looking dress at prom and I felt great all night-super comfortable!
The dress was the perfect length with heels. It fit me absolutely perfect and I didn't have to get a special bra or anything! Me and my boyfriend went for the James Bond look for prom and it looked great!

Beautiful, fun dress!
I loved this dress! It is perfect for a formal wedding or event. The cut outs on the front and back are black lace but lined with a sheer nude mesh under- it gives the cutaway illusion with much more comfortable coverage. I opted for a backless stick-on bra but I think you could probably get away with a strapless. The pleated skirt is great, it has lots of fun movement. The material definitely has no give- I would typically wear a size 2 but went up because the bust was too tight. This was my first RTR rental and I was very satisfied. I bought shoes for this dress and selected the heel height based on their suggestion given the length of the dress and my height- they were spot on.

Beautiful!
I wore the 6R even though it was just slightly long because it fit better than the 8P overall. A 6P probably would have been perfect but it was unavailable. Stunning dress, super comfortable, photographed beautifully. This is a perfect dress for someone with a fuller bust because it's flattering without cleavage. I also found the dress very slimming.

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!

I got so many compliments on this dress. It was elegant and feminine. I wish I owned it!
Fits beautiful, I thought it would be a bit small but from reading the reviews I went with a 2R and it fit like a glove. Beautiful material and elegant design. Highly recommend for a formal wedding.

Classy and Comfortable!
This gown is stunning. The pleated skirt is so flowy and swings beautifully when moving and dancing, the bodice completely covers in all the right places. For small-chested girls (likemaself), you won't even need a b-r-a. The length was absolutely perfect, just half an inch above the floor. I'm 5'7" and wore 3.5 inch heels, making me 5'10.5" - if you're shorter than that, go with regular or you'll be tripping on the very fine fabric skirt. I couldn't count how many complements I received at this black tie wedding! This dress is the perfect balance between sexy, classy and comfortable. Highly, highly recommend for a formal affair!!

Perfect for a wedding
This dress was unbelievably flattering. The bottom half is more sheer than you would think though, so that caught me off guard but it was still beautiful. I wore this dress with 5 inch heels and it was the perfect length, but any shorter than that and the dress would have been dragging on the ground, so caution for those 5'2" and under!

I absolutely loved this dress! It was absolutely gorgeous and made me feel like a million bucks!
The dress is very true to size. I have a small chest and the top definitely fit just perfectly. If you have a larger chest, I would recommend going up a size because there is no wiggle room! The dress was a tad long but at 5'3" and 3" heels it was just fine. The sheer panel is not very sheer but gave just the right amount of sexiness to the dress. The top lace portions of the dress had a nude lining so I was able to wear a nude strapless bra without it showing. I totally recommend this dress!

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!!

Very flattering with lace cutouts and a flowy bottom perfect for the dance floor
Opted to wear a different dress because I was afraid it would've been stepped on. I didn't have taller heels to prevent it from grazing the floor. When I tried it on, I paired it with a skinny gold belt. It was lovely and I loved it!

Beautiful dress!
Such a classic dress! The description isn't lying when it says the waist of the dress is fitted (there is no give in the fabric here). I was able to wear a regular strapless bra without it showing in the back. Overall, gorgeous and you will get compliments all night!
