I felt like a show stopper in this dress. The cut out is sexy, without being too revealing.

I rented this dress to wear for a Bachelorette party in Vegas. I felt this dress ran small. I could barely breathe, but loved the dress anyway. I would order a size up for your back-up size. I liked where the slit was - it was my favorite part of the dress. For $50, it's a great rental!

I got so many compliments and I can't wait to have an excuse to rent this dress again!

This dress fit me more perfectly than I was expecting. I absolutely loved the exposed side and back - it took a little getting used to (it's weird to feel the breeze on your rib cage), and I got a few scandalous looks from the more conservative girls, but it was worth it because I looked and felt amazing. Because of its simplicity, I went with a big gold necklace (that I also rented here).

Gorgeous!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This dress was gorgeous! It definitely shows off your curves and fits snugly. If you are pear shaped (like me) I recommend ordering the size up as your back up. I ended up wearing the 6 as it fit better in the chest region, but was slightly too snug on the lower half. The 8 was better in the hips, but way too loose in the chest. Other than that it looks beautiful on and sure to get compliments!

Loved it. I ordered it in my actual size forgetting that designer dresses tend to be a size smaller. If it had been my size, I would've loved it even more. The compliments were plentiful.

Oh my gosh! If I could rate this dress a 6, I would. This and one other dress were my first RTR dresses and can't wait to order my next one. I'm going to have to open a savings account just for my monthly budget :). All the reviews say this dress ran small but it absolutely ran true to size. I have an athletic body type and am not too curvy but this dress gave me just enough. It was ultra sexy and I would rent it again.

I rented this dress for a Vegas vacation and wore it to dinner and the club. i loved the cut out part, it was a little long for my liking but I still like the way it looked on. I think this dress runs a little small....and there is no give in the material whatsoever. So if you're between sizes, Id suggest ordering a size up for back up!

Turning heads with revealing, yet tasteful, cutout dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Overall, the dress was a hit! However, it was longer than I expected. I'm 5'3" and it almost hit my knees. I rented it over another Black Halo dress because I thought it was shorter--need to look at models heights a little more closely. The length ended up slimming me though and the cutout was perfect for a Fraternity Semi Formal on Bourbon Street. Definitely runs small, I'm glad I ordered one size up because I ended up wearing the 6. I matched it with yellow Kate Spade earrings for some color!

Perfect for special night out

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
I rented this for my first Coldplay concert ---love love love Coldplay. I wanted to make the night even more special by ordering from RTR. I ordered in sizes 4 and 6. I went back and forth too many times to count. The 4 seemed a little too snug when seated but otherwise fit nicely. I ended up wearing the 6 which gapped about an inch under my left arm but I was able to fix with the tape included. Normally my biggest concern is the length but the length with this dress was good for my height and comfort level.

Never before in my life have I been hit on by so many guys in one night. Thanks, RTR!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I was attending the launch party for a dating app. This is by far the sexiest dress I have ever worn in my life. You can size up if you want lots of space to shimmy around in, but because of the large cutout, I suggest making sure you go for the snugger fit so the left side doesn't let your breast pop out. I wore a pushup NuBra for the first time with this, and it stuck on me very well. I was dancing for several hours in this ensemble, and never once did I need to adjust anything.

Overall fit: True to Size

my waist is much narrower than my hips, so I had trouble getting the bottom half of the cut out to sit right on my waist, but other than that, I was able to wear it without a bra no worries and was able to move easily in it all night

Sadly, I did not get to wear this dress due to it being damaged when I received it. However, I called RTR and they handled the situation perfectly. If I didn't already appreciate this company, I really do now. As for the dress, it fit true to size, but I would definitely not recommend for large chested women.

I wore this for a night on the town with my husband. He LOVED IT! It is comfortable dress. It's not too tight that you can't move but it is still amazingly form fitting! Just got to make sure you have the right bra. I wore a strapless but needed to use bra tape to make sure the bra didn't peek in the cutout.

Great way to wear the cutout trend

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Loved this dress for NYE - I usually wear a 4 but the 6 fit perfectly. It's tight all the way down - not like on the model. I was able to wear a stick-on bra and even spanx with this. It's very slimming and the cutout is not revealing - a classy way to wear the cutout trend. And at only $20 it was an awesome rental! Another hit for RTR!

Cute dress for NYE!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I usually wear between a size 2 or 4 in dresses, but I DEFINITELY needed a size four in this one. I usually wear a size 27 or 28 in jeans and don't exactly have a big bottom, but I found this dress really tight on the bottom, to the point where it was almost a little uncomfortable dancing. However, the cutout got rave reviews and it looked nice when I was standing and was comfortable enough to generally move around in. Overall, pretty good, but not my favorite dress of all time!

This dress fits beautifully, true to size. The color and silhouette are simple, The cut out is hot, but length makes the dress very classy and v stand-out. I'm pretty waif-ish but it looked great. Highly recommend. I rent frequently from RTR and they always provide such convenient, professional service especially if you rent from NYC.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress but wasn't able to wear it. The top on the 6 was too small. I could almost fit into the top of the 8, but that made the rest of the dress too large. Definitely a great dress for someone more proportionate, but not goof for a large chest. Not enough give to the material.

Dress is too long for a night out!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Vacation
I rented this dress and returned it the next day. I'm not sure what you would wear this dress for - it's too long for a night out (I'm 5'3" and it went down to my knees) and too risque' (with the cut-out) for a formal affair that requires a knee-length dress. Also I would recommend this for larger chested girls...the left strap (?) over my cleavage was loose even on the size 2 (which fit fine everywhere else...)

I took a gamble and rented this despite the fact that my back up wasn't available AND the reviews says it runs small.

I love the concept of this dress but it runs on the small side. I was able to fit into the dress but I would have been uncomfortable at the party all night in it. I ended up returning it. I'm short and it seemed a tad long but the bust area fit fine.

The bust was really tight and I don't have a big bust, so I had to go up a size. If you happen to have skin in your armpits-area, you might want to size up or it'll bulge there. I went a size up and it was more flattering.

I chose this dress to wear out on my birthday dinner date. I wish this was permanently in my closet because I would wear it a lot. It's the perfect amount of sexy, a nice spin on the little black dress!!I felt secure enough up top that I did not have to wear a bra with it (as suggested). I highly recommend, just keep in mind this dress runs true to size and there is no give if you've got hips!!
