Love this dress

I don't really fill the bust out but that's most dresses for me. It'll not stop me from wearing it. It is probably one of the most comfortable dresses I've ever worn, if not the most. Can't tell you the fabric but it's amazing. It's not skin tight but still hugs your body. I'm a 4 and it's a 4 but considering it wasn't that tight and my boobs don't fill it out I think a 6 could maybe do a 4 if they want the backside to fit tight. If you just want to be comfy and still be able to breath and stuff, it's true to size.

Derby party hit!

This dress fit perfect and the material is great! Thick but not restricting or bulky. I loved the front slit and was able to wear a regular strapless bra with no issues. Would rent again or even buy this dress!

Spring summer sheath

I'm waiting to try a 10 because the 12 was too roomy in the bodice. Got so many compliments on this dress - color was a hit! Hubby loved the cut. I'll dress it up for a wedding and down for a graduation. If I can find a 10 I'm buying this one. Feels fantastic - lined, no bra needed.

Perfect spring wedding dress

I received compliments all night on this simple yet beautiful Black Halo sheath. The midi length with the criss-cross opening in the front was the perfect combination, and the dress with breathable and easy to dance in. Already wishing I had another event to rent it for. I was able to get away without wearing a bra which also added to the comfort. Due to how the neckline sits, suggest possibly sizing up with a larger chest otherwise the inside fabric may roll out over itself. Also given my height dresses of this length sometimes worry me, but with a pair of heels I loved it.

Drab

Like a muted sherbet color, it was just drab and too big across the hips

Very flattering

Wore to a black tie optional May wedding. I'm 5"10 size 30 and this dress fit me perfectly. The fabric is thick and looks expensive.

Complimenting dress

The fabric is slightly dressy but the cut is super flattering. Straps fit perfect and it was sexy enough without being too much. The slit does ride up pretty high when you sit down. Wore to a birthday dinner and dressed it down but can be easily work to a cocktail party and dressed up.

Perfect for a spring event!

Love love love this dress! Super flattering (especially in the midsection) & just enough sexy. The only issue is the slit was quite high (I'm 5'8") so I had to size up so that I wouldn't flash people on the dance floor. Would highly recommend, but if you're on the taller side, size up just in case.

Beautiful dress but runs big!

Small girls beware.. I'm 5'2, 100 pounds, 30C and I was swimming in this dress. The top fit okay, but the bottom half was so big. My whole figure was lost in the dress. It is a beautiful dress and great quality - just couldn't wear because of the size.

So many compliments!

I loved this dress! I rented for a coastal cocktail dress code wedding in Hilton Head. I received so many compliments - it was so flattering and comfortable. For reference I'm under 5 feet so it was a bit longer but that's to be expected. I did safety pin the straps because they were a little loose and long but you couldn't notice. I felt super confident! I also got a spray tan and it looked great with the color. It is a bit more orangey than the pics.

Felt beautiful and very comfortable!!

The dress was form fitting but not too tight. The color is beautiful and perfect for a summer wedding. The length was perfect even for someone like me who is very short. I'm not very busty but the cut was still very flattering. True to size and very comfortable would definitely recommend!

Loved this bold color that stood out from other guests without overshadowing the bride!

Typically wear size 12, sizes up based on other reviews. The 12 fit nicely without a bra but ended up wearing the 14 with a push up strapless bra as this combination kept more of the inside lining from rolling out - though I still struggled with this. Looked fine in photos (posted here) but of course I prefer the photos without the visible lining! If the lining had stayed out without my constant fidgeting, this would've gotten 5 stars.

The dress fit very well and was flattering. For tall girls, the slit is very high. I had to be very careful standing up and sitting down, but I still loved the dress and would rent again.

I can't recommend this dress enough! It was the perfect fit and so flattering. I wore a size 6 (I am 5'3" 145 lbs) and it was perfect. I received many compliments and told everyone it was from RTR and they have to get it!

THIS Color...

Was perfect for my chocolate skin. Definitely gave me a nice glow!! The slit was placed at a good point for someone who has long legs. I ordered a 12 & a 14. I ended up wearing the 14 cause I figured it would give me more room. I wear a DDD/F bra size so I didn't want my boobs to look too squished, but turns out I could've just worn the 12. The straps are not adjustable so I had to pull them up throughout the night. I guess that's more so "user error" than anything. Either way, loved the dress. Worth the investment for the night.

Perfect for a Summer Wedding

Cannot say how much I LOVED this dress! Wore it to a wedding and got compliments all night. The color was beautiful, and the fit was so comfortable. I was a little nervous because the reviews said the slit in the front could get a little high, so I sized up and it worked out fine (maybe would avoid if you're going to be somewhere very windy) Would 100% rent again

Loved this dress!

I wore this dress for a summer wedding and I loved it! It runs a little big, id say size down one size. The only negative is that the slit is soo high but it ended up not really being a problem for me even while dancing. The fabric is very flattering!

Beautiful color

I wore this to a wedding in Mexico. Such a fun and different color! I received a lot of compliments. I usually wear a 0, 2, or 4 and wore the 0. I used a safety pin to keep the slit closed but it still went up pretty high so I had to be careful when sitting. I also couldn't really bend down without revealing too much so my husband had to help me put my shoes back on after the beach ceremony. But I could still move around and danced for hours comfortably. Would recommend.

Great party dress

I wore this dress to my gf wedding and got a ton of complements. The 8 would have fit but the slit was to high. Also the top would pucker a bit showing my bra but other than that I was comfortable and danced all night.

Felt sexy!

I loved this dress and got so many compliments on it! It was comfortable, breathable and the color was great for a summer wedding. Only downside was a little big in the breast area, but I'm not packing much heat there so I just went braless.

Beautiful color

I rented this dress for a warm outdoor wedding in Napa in June. It worked well for the occasion, with the slit giving it breathability. However, the slit is high when you sit down, so be prepared. The color was beautiful and the dress fit well in a 2; the 4 was not as flattering given how loosely it hung.

N/A

Dress fit perfectly, ran a little big. Neckline was flattering but the slit on the side goes up very high. I had to hold it closed when I sat down or stood up so as long as you don't mind a bit of work on that front, the dress was amazing. Highly recommend!

Did not wear this out of the house.

This is not made for anyone with wide hips as the split is unforgiving . Dress was a bit snug in the bust as well. Color was fantastic though!

SO flattering and was so popular!

I wore this dress to a cocktail party and it was a showstopper. People hadn't seen me dress this way before so it really made me look sexy and beautiful. I would say the color would be best for darker skin tones and may climb with some lighter tones. Truly so lovely and I will rent again!!

I really enjoyed wearing this dress to a summer wedding last weekend..Perfect dress for the occasion

I loved this dress!!! It was the perfect combination of elegant and sexy..it was fitted but not too tight for getting down on the dance floor. The dress was very comfortable and was a great length..I’m 5’3” so taller woman may find it to be on the shorter side in the front. I only felt like the length was short in the front with the slit when sitting down. Great color for a summer weddingt...especially pops with a tan. Nice elegant low cut neck line too.

I got SO many compliments on this dress!

This dress was almost perfect. The only (and minor) problem I had with it was the slit goes up pretty high under the front wrap. There's no problem with it coming undone unless you squat low. And I didn't have this problem until we started going crazy on the dance floor. Other than that, it's absolutely perfect.

THIS Dress: the fit, the color, the compliments!

I wore this dress to a bridal shower in which I am a bridesmaid and the compliments during (and after via photos) were nonstop. The color is to die for and it is just the right amount of "sexy" without being too revealing. It is form fitting, but in all the right places! I normally wear a 10, but the 12 felt more comfortable. I would surely recommend to any and everyone!
