Beautiful lace details
Love this dress! I want it! I could've likely worn the 6 (usual size) as the top was loose, but I had this for a vacation and only ordered 1 size.

Lots of complements!
I typically wear a size 6 but the 6 was tight in my rib cage with no give. I'm glad I ordered up for the 8 was very comfortable since it runs small. Great dress for a wedding!

So many compliments
The fit was amazing! I generally go between an 8 and a 10, and had to wear the 10, but it was perfect! My boyfriend loved it on me and I got so many compliments. Sorry I couldn't get a picture of the entire dress, I forgot :/ Absolutely a dream though!

Classy and beautiful
This dress was overnighted as my original selection did not fit. I fell in love with it! The fit was perfect (true to size) and silhouette flattering. It was also very comfortable. Received many compliments...

I loved the flow of this dress
It was much longer than I thought it would be. I'm pretty tall and it still hit me at the knees. Go a size up, I'm usually a size 2 but I got a size 4 and it was about right

RTR was so incredibly EASY! I don't know why I waited so long to try them!
The reviews stated the dress ran true to size/small- I found it ran very true to size! I ordered my 'normal' size and a size below (since size above was taken) and I was a bit worried at first, because some people said they went a size up- but my 'normal' size fit just fine. I even felt like the top was roomy, was a tad fitted at the natural waistline, but I wouldn't have wanted it any bigger! Beautiful dress!!!

Great unique LBD!
Great dress - got a ton of compliments as it wasn't an ordinary LBD. The 4 was a *little* tight in the waist but overall was the better fit on my body with length and other areas so I made it work. If definitely rent again!

I felt really classy and got many compliments on this dress!
This dress fit really beautifully! The length was just below the knees, which was nice for a formal party. The illusion neck felt classy and appropriate but still pretty. The dress cinched in at the waist and fit my hourglass body a lot better than it looked like it might in the picture!

Beautiful flattering dress that is sexy but classy.
This dress has a pleasing heaviness to it that make it drape beautifully and feel great to wear. It feels very 20s glam but isn't at all like a costume.

Beautiful Dress and great quality...tight in the ribs.
I ordered this to wear on a cruise. I had a few of my own options too. I decides not to wear this dress because although it fit it was really tight on the ribs and I felt I would be uncomfortable. Beautiful dress just too snug.

I actually got engaged in this dress! At my roaring-20s-themed 30th bday.
Dress felt great. Very comfortable. The 6 was too small (I usually wear 6's), but the 8 fit great.

Fabulous dress for a Timeless NYE Party!
This dress was perfect for a timeless look. I'm usually about a size 4 however I wore the size 6 for a bit more comfortable feel. I am a 34DD and the size 4 seemed to snug in the breast area. Received many compliments on a classy look. It was nice to wear something other than the typical sequins dresses most wore. Spiced it up with the faux fur shoulder shawl.

Beautiful dress with fabulous fabric
I needed a 'modest' but fun dress for an evening function and this worked perfectly. The fabric was beautiful - the nude cut outs made it really stand out. The dress had a slight 50's vibe and felt great to wear. The neckline was a little low for me but it has lace covering it so it was probably just my personal preference. The dress hit at my knees, which was fine but I would have liked it to have been a little shorter. I had to size up to the 6 as the waist band was very tight in the 4. It was a little tight in the 6 too so I did not sit down a lot.

Great Date Night Dress
I really liked this dress, and it was perfect for my tall frame. My husband and I were having a special date night, and I wanted to get dressed up a bit. His jaw dropped when I came downstairs to have him zip me up. :) I would caution busty ladies to be wary-- I had a hard time getting my "ladies" in the dress and zipped up. The fit ended up being a bit snug, but since it was just date night and not a long formal affair, it was manageable.

Great Details & Flattering Cut
I rented this dress for a Gatsby themed new year's eve party I was throwing. I didn't want to look too costumey and this dress was the perfect choice. I would definitely wear it again. The fit and illusion lace create a very detailed, flattering fit. I wore a strapless bra with this dress. I have a very small rib cage and found that this dress was very slim through that section, especially when I tried it on with a bra that had straps. I am very hour glass shaped and this dress accentuated that in a good way - with room in the hips. I wore this dress for hours, was able to dance and received a lot of compliments. Not sure if it's a summery dress, but perfect for the winter season.

Fit was off ...
I was so excited about this dress but it was too big for me on top, and under the full skirt was a not quite as full slip, and since it is slightly connected the to outer skirt the flaws couldn't be hidden. I am definitely a pear shape so a different body type might work better.

Not your typical black dress!
Wore this beauty at an outdoor wedding in upstate NY. Paired it with a leather jacket (already chilly up there!) and some rose gold heels - super chic transition-to-fall ensemble. The high neck and length of skirt keep it on the conservative side, but the lace cutouts and pleats make it special. Found the top to a big tight around the rib cage, but it might just be b/c of my longer torso. Would love to buy / rent again!

Very flattering shape
Loved the dress. Was so easy to wear and I felt so chic. I wore the 2, my normal size, even though it was a little snug because it was more flattering to my figure. It was never uncomfortable but with my chest, I certainly didn't want to take a deep breath too quickly!

Wore this to a 1925-themed party and it worked great!
I'm tall and the dress was long - hit right in the middle of my knees. It's beautifully made but a little tight around the ribcage and some of the lining bunches on the hip. It ended up working perfectly for the 1925-themed party I attended and I received a ton of compliments!

Not just another plain black dress
This was an out-of-the-ordinary choice for me. There is black lace over a neutral backing except at the shoulders, where it's just the black lace. As others have said, this dress runs small (BCBG usually does). The band below the chest is snug, so it could be a problem for larger chest sizes. It was form fitting around the hips, but the skirt is full. As you can see in the pic, it's also a little longer than other dresses, so it was perfect for the business formal event I wore it to. All in all, a GOOD dress. (But I've had so many GREAT dresses from RTR, that this wouldn't make my top ten list). Renting for 2 more events as I write this.....

I wore this dress for a 20s theme wedding. It was perfect.
BCBG seems to run a bit small. I normally wear a 6 or an 8 and had to get a 10 in this dress. The 8 was very tight. The 10 fit perfect.

Really beautiful!
Really beautiful, I wore it for an award ceremony and got multiple compliments. If you have a larger rib cage like I do, it fits a little tight around there but it wasn't tight enough for me to justify wearing a larger size. The skirt hangs lovely and makes walking around very fun. I'm kind of sad I didn't get the chance to dance in it.

Absolute stunning Dress!
The dress was absolutely perfect, but it did run a bit on the small side. My suggestion would be to order a size from your normal dress size as a backup.

Wonderful dress - classy, subtly sexy, and very different. I loved it and received numerous compliments. It does a little small, but nothing drastic - get the second size one up from your usual, it was perfect. Also, RTR customer service is amazing!!!

I rented this dress for a Big Band theme for our Chamber Banquet. Everyone loved the dress.
The dress fit great. I weigh around 135 pounds and am 5'8. I rented a size 4 and size 6. Usually I wear a size 4, but for this dress I ended up wearing the 6 so I do think this dress runs a little smaller. It was very comfortable and I received TONS of comments on how beautiful the dress was.

My 1st RTR
I am usually a size 8, but I decided to go with the 10 because I felt the bodice was very snug and had no give. I am pretty busty (34 DD+) and I needed to keep readjusting the lace detailing in the front. I also felt the back lace closure was very large and the button you are to secure it with was either stretched out, or just too big because it came unbuttoned a few times during the day. Overall, this is a pretty dress and I'm happy with my RTR experience,

Cute, a little different
A little different than your typical lbd. Ran a tiny bit smaller than expected but I was still able to wear it fairly comfortably. Because of the lines on the skirt, if it is too small, this could make you look a little maternity-like. I would definitely size up. Bra straps will be visible at the shoulders where the lace is. I wore a regular black bra without feeling like it was noticeable or un-classy.

Runs a bit small
The dress was a backup and I didn't get any pic of me wearing it. The lace detailing is pretty and flattering. However, the waistline has a tight band around the middle that has zero give. I'm 5'4, 122, and I wear size 26/27 waist size in jeans. The dress was ok while standing, but definitely too tight when sitting and I don't think it would be comfortable after a couple hours. I might rent it in the future but I will get a size 8!

A beautiful, unique dress with interesting detail, lining and pleats.
I had to rent this as a back-up just to see it. It is a very unique, pretty dress, and one that is well made and classy. I did not wear it due to other choices available, but would like to have this dress permanently in my closet. I tried on both size 2 and 4, and found that size 4 would be my preferred size.
