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!

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.

Nice but a little boring
This dress was completely fine, it fit well and very true to size but just a little underwhelming. Loved a lot of my rent the runway dresses a lot more but it was a nice dress for an occasion where you're not necessarily looking to stand out

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.

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...

Black tie optional NYE.
Overall I really liked this dress. The design is very flattering- it accentuates your waist and the nude lining creates great curves. I didn't realize that the nude stripes on the dress are connected to the lining, so it's almost like a sheath with the black pleats creating a more forgiving A-line shape. I felt classy and elegant and it was fun to wear. The dress was in great shape- some people mentioning the elastic for the button closure in the back was stretched out, but mine was perfectly fine. Also, I am a 34DD and I felt the bust was a comfortable (not too tight). I wore a sticky bra and it worked out fine.

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.

Gorgeous dress, but not right for me.
Beautiful dress! The fabric is really nice, the pleats and lace together add a modern touch to a classic dress. Fit was not right for me at all. I wear a 10 in pants and tops. I tried on the 12 first - the top half was too big, like it needed to be pulled up at the shoulders. I would have dealt with it for the evening, but the waist was much too small for my apple body. It zipped, but I couldn't breathe. Granted, I didn't have my Spanx Higher Power on when I tried it on, but I couldn't sit in the dress - I didn't even try. The 10 dress probably would have fit my top half well, but it was just too cinched in the waist for me. So sad. Loved it.

FANTASTIC DRESS!
I really liked this dress. It fit well. The length was just at my knees so perfect for the office grand opening party that we had. It's got a great vintage look that everyone loved. You need to wear a strapless bra or a bra with clear straps as the top of the mesh is open. The rest of the mesh has beige fabric beneath.

Comfortable and easy to wear dress
I was the event planner for my company holiday party this year so I wanted something that was pretty but conservative and simple. The party theme was Gatsby or 1920's so I wanted simple so I could add a few props to fit in with the theme. I knew I would be running around all night and wanted to make sure I wouldn't be fussing with my dress all night. This dress was perfect with the addition of a sequin bag, faux fur jacket, and a feather headband.

Thank you Erika for your review. I too have a Great Gatsby Event to attend and since I'm hosting I don't want to be bothered with adjusting or pulling all night.

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.

Great fit, beautiful dress
I know I wear a 4 in BCBG so there was no guessing on the sizing. The waist was a perfect fit on me. Loved the length (more tea length on me). Very easy to wear. I would definitely recommend this and rent again!

Beautiful dress but was not flattering in this color.
I rented this dress and did not end up wearing it. It's a beautiful dress and I've seen it in other colors. But this black color seemed to make me look frumpy. It accentuated my waist and made it look teeny tiny . However, probably because of my height, but the bottom of the dress hit my knees in a way that was not flattering. I felt too covered up, like an old lady. Also, the zipper in the back made the material hang heavy and fall in an awkward way. I would have had to wear my hair down to cover it. You can wear a bra. strapless or one with clear straps.

Very comfortable for a black tie work function
I usually wear a 10 but the 10 was too tight around my rib cage so I went with the 12. The 12 was a little big in the chest area (and I'm a 34DD) but overall it fit well. It was long enough and covered enough that I felt comfortable at a stuffy black tie law firm event. I wouldn't recommend this dress for a night on the town with friends but it was great for a work function where I didn't want anything "hanging out"

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!

Takes the worry out of looking great! Love RTR!
I love that you get 2 sizes for this dress. The 8 fit me, however I chose to go with the 10 for the event as the 8 was just a bit snug around the bust. Otherwise the dress is very comfortable, the length was perfect and it is very pretty in person!

Very flattering and fun dress!
I normally wear a size 8 dress, went up to a 10 on this because the 8 was slightly snug under the bust, but my rib cage is a little bit wider than most. I loved the length as well, since I'm tall many dresses come up short. I would highly recommend this dress!

Everyone loved it an thought it looked fantastic!
I am 5'11" and have some curves (bust, hips). This dress was GORGEOUS and fit well, if a bit snug through the torso. I wore a strapless bra with it, but if you are slightly smaller than I am up top, you may not even need to do that. I loved this dress and will definitely rent it again in the future. Oh, the length was also great for a tall girl as well!

The chevron pattern in the bust made this dress very slimming. Loved it!
Skirt was roomy, swishy, perfect for dancing. Bodice is true to size, if not a tad on the small side.

Loved the way this dress looked on. I didn't notice the top lace part was sheer & you could see my bra through it. It worked out in the end because I got lots of complements on it !

fit true to size ( well, the new size i gained too!) and was pretty stunning! if it wasn't a traditional catholic cermony, i would have worn it for sure!

Elegant
I wore this to a summer wedding. I tried on both the 6 and the 8, but the 8 fit my bust better. It was still a tiny bit tight under the arms, which I didn't love. Also, because the décolleté has lace and the black line in the middle, the design doesn't do anything too flattering for a big chest. However, the dress was elegant and for the most part comfortable. I don't think I would rent it again, but I was happy enough with it for the occasion.

Not for hourglass/pear shape
Not a great dress for someone with a large bust. The girls were a little suffocated when I tried it on. Also, if you have larger hips the seams along the hip line are not super flattering. Also tried the size up and the dress was too big. This is just made for more of an athletic build.

Gorgeous Dress!!
This dress fit like a glove. It was formal with being sexy with the detailing. Doesn't wrinkle so didn't need to iron it last minute. Very flattering for a pear shape is my guess because its baggier on the bottom but great for any shape! Definitely perfect for a formal occasion.

It is tight around the bust as others mention!
