My boyfriend picked this for our special Christmas date.
And he did an EXCELLENT job. This dress is incredibly flattering and sexy and actually really comfortable. While the 42 fit (and my BF would have preferred I wear it) I felt more comfortable in the 44. It definitely hugs your curves in all the right place and fit snug enough that I did not need to wear a bra. Sadly, I LOST my phone that night along with all of the pics!

Perfect fit. Nice fabric and construction. Wore a NuBra. No problems with "flashing" . Love this dress! Would buy in a second!

It was a little lose I normally wear a size 12 dress: none the less very comfortable and very flattering. It was sexy but not overly done, the quarter length sleeves along with the turtle neck line, made the dress classier. I can't wait to rent this again!

Not as sexy as it looks - in a good way
wore this to the Latin Grammys in November. It was a cocktail attire event, so black is perfect, but it's the Latin Grammys, so you need to sex it up a bit. This dress is incredibly comfortable and surprisingly flattering. I wore a nude bodysuit underneath, rather than go bra-less like some people would (I don't have the girls for going bra-less). You could not see any lines of the suit, and it definitely still gave the illusion of nakedness underneath. Its sexy and classy at the same time.

Very nice dress, but sheer!
I wore a nude bra under and I wish I would have worn a black bandeau because it pictures it is very sheer.

This dress was perfect for a party or a formal event with a bit of edge.
I was currently in between sizes when I wore this dress in 8/2014 at about 165lbs. This dress was perfect for my boyfriend's 30th birthday party. The only con was wearing a tan bra, which you could see a little. I should have went with the black bra instead. The overall fit was a little loose, so I went down a size.

Reserved and exhibitionist all at the same time. Loved the attention.
Runs a little large. Expected the fabric to be stretchier based on the photos of the model. The weave on the shear parts is a little course; it looks great, but it's just a little bit itchy. The sheer parts look like regular stripes of color until you notice that there are shadows underneath those stripes. It took people 5 or 10 seconds to realize what they could see. Definitely recommend fashion tape. I would definitely wear this dress again.

Love love love.
I wore the 40 but should have worn the 38. The dress arrived at the very last second and I literally had no time to try on both before walking out the door to the event - popular choice I guess. I would consider renting again or even saving up to purchase the actual thing - I loved it.

Sexy!!
I received this dress and fell in LOVE with it!!! Even loved it more when I had it on, unfortunately as I was showing my friend and marveling at myself, she pointed out a problem in the back! A rip just at my behind.. :-( needless to say I wasn't able to wear it..... But the customer service girls were amazing!

I saw this dress and couldn't wait to wear it.
Although it's a pretty dress, there was a little too much room in the waist. It does not cinch like the picture. This will be nice if you need a little room in the waist. I thought this would fit much tighter.

Sexy and classy
I was pretty surprised this dress fit me since I usually wear a 12. So I'd say this dress is super stretchy and runs large (or the dress I received was mismarked) but it doesn't lose its form. The mesh parts are very see through, but I was in Vegas so this didn't bother me. If you were wearing this in a more conservative venue, you'd probably want some undergarments. If you're an amazon like me, the mesh stripes on the bottom of the dress will lead all the way up to your lady parts. I didn't wear a bra and felt comfortable without one.

Stretchy but thick fabric hugs your curves. Got lots of compliments all night! Wear a nu-bra underneath. Very comfy for dancing!

Simple, sophisticated, yet all around Sexy!
Was my first choice but wore my second. Will defiantly rent again to wear the next time around. Had the size 40 since the 38 wasn't available. Will have to try and see how the 38 fits. A little loose around the neck. You would want to wear pasties or a nude color bra with it.

A very chic LBD but follow the stylist's recommendations!
This was worn for a photo shoot. As it was the second dress in an order only one size was available and it ran a bit large in the waist. The stylist recommends best for A to C cup and that's probably right--the horizontal striping accentuates chest size which was not needed for my 35 D size. A slip is also recommended and I would concur--a bra outline is easily seen through the sheer stripes. This one grabs a lot of attention, but probably best for the athletic or straight and narrow figure.

Fun birthday party dress!
This was a backup option to a sequin romper for my birthday. I wanted to wear something fun and sexy. The great thick stretchy fabric was not too hot for a summer evening out. There is no lining, so please make sure you wear fashion tape for sure. Received so many compliments for this dress and thought it was a huge hit!

Wowzer!
Was celebrating birthday in a night club in Vegas and decided to go all out! Dress is truly amazing as most reviews indicated. Very flattering on the problem spots! I had enough courage to go with out a bra, but definitely get 2 sided tape. I danced all night and didn't have one slip. Dress is sexy but very classy! The neck was a little loose but the thickness of the material really holds everything in place. I am old enough to be the mom of most of the girls that were at the club, but was stopped by a group of them on our way out complementing how beautiful the dress was. My husband absolutely loved the dress, the black stripes strategically cover most but its definitely see through. They didn't have the next size down and i think probably could have worn it but the 44 was fine. Highly recommend this for the right occasion.

Obsessed with the for and how flattering it is. So, so sexy.
The fit was just perfect. The material is flattering on any body shape and will make anyone feel sexy and confident in it. RTR was amazing as well--I had a last minute crisis when my order came in with some minor tares in the shear parts but they were amazing reimbursed me for the alterations after trying to send me 50 other dresses to choose from. But I was too set on this amazing dress. I wish I could've kept it!

The staff attempt to be helpful however with a rental the need to be more aware about questions regarding undergarments and sizing.

Blah
I rented this in the 40 and 42 (apparently there's a size 38 but I wasn't given that option to choose from) and neither sizes fit. It has a turtle neck on it and it was lose around my neck. The sizing says "good for A-C cups and I'm a DD so I thought I would definitely fill in the size 40 and I got the 42 just in case, meanwhile both were kind of baggy on me. It made a slight difference when I put heels on so that I was able to pull the dress a little longer but it just didn't look right. I would NOT recommend this for SHORT girls!!! I'm 5' 3" and like I said, it just didn't work. Also, I purchased the pasties so that I could wear the dress without a bra but that didn't work either since they were a completely different color from my skin so they showed right through the dress in contrast to me. They were really light in color (and I have very fair skin so that's saying a lot.

Such a great outfit! Def makes you stand out from the crowd.
I'm normally a 10 but i got a 48 and 46 just in case because I'm a DD in breast size and i have a very shapely figure. However, I was a bit suprised to find that even the 46 was a bit big. I have like an hour glass figure so i think if i a 44 may have been dead on! Nonetheless I still adored the dress. Great length, comfy texture and on-time delivery. I will def use this service again. Thanks!

Hi! I've rented this same dress for a fashion show I'm attending. I'm also a size 10 and ordered the 46 in this dress because I saw it ran large. Happy to hear it fit you well! Just curious though, how were you able to order a 48 as a backup? I didn't see that size available and would like to do that as well, just in case. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

I wore this dress for my birthday celebration
This dress was really well made and overall the fit was good. It was longer than I had expected and I am almost 5'9. You need fashion tape to hold it in place on top or a nude strapless bra.

"Sexy and classy".. cliche... but so true!
I think the phrase "the perfection combination of sexy and classy" is overused but can't help using it to describe this unassuming dress! I first tried it on without a bra and that was a disaster (nip slip)! I ended up wearing a plain, nude-colored bra and it was barely visible! Granted, you can kind of see the bra, but the benefit of perky boobs and no nip slips definitely outweighed the possibility of flashing a strap. Plus, in the dark it's impossible to tell. This dress COULD have been tighter as it somewhat stretched out by the end of the night but overall, my true size was a great fit! it hugs in all the right places, is super comfortable, and a total stunner. I really wish I could have kept this dress!!! :'(

This dress was beyond amazing!! My favorite rental so far (I've rented A LOT). Had to have someone on full time nipple patrol but it was worth it. Definitely runs large, I wore a 42 and I think I could have worn a 40 possibly. It was a show stopper!! Highly recommended

I wore this to a holiday cocktail party and loved it!!!!
This dress was absolutely amazing! I am very self-conscious about showing too much leg, but decided to go for it. It is right on trend with the cut out dresses you are seeing on celebrities. CAUTION! This does NOT have a lining!! Because the knit material was a thicker and the stripes were wide enough, I was able to go without a bra with some well placed double stick tape. I danced all night long and did not have any problems with the dress riding up or the stripes migrating up from the double stick tape. I will rent this dress again, but I would actually go a size down on this particular one. The material is very forgiving and I like to emphasis my waist. I wish I had a better photo of this dress. It looks incredible in person!

Great dress but choose your occasion wisely.
Great dress, sexy and classy. Thicker fabric helps tone it down some which is helpful because the panels are sheer (not nude, a bit of bluish gray in the mesh). I wouldn't wear it braless, I'd wear it with a nude colored bra. Love the dress for a date night or evening cocktail affair but it was too va-va-voom for a day wedding.

Loved this dress! So sassy
This dress was amazing. I wore a size 40 but wished they had the 38 available. It was slightly large but not overly noticeable. As for the breast area, I had no problems with it covering. I wore no bra and the top does not move out of place. If you do have an issue, you can easily wear a NuBra underneath!

Sultry & Sexy!
I loved this dress! I wore this out for my birthday and got many compliments on it. It looks deceiving on the hanger but once you put this on it has the "wow" factor. It fit slightly loose around the waist on me but the rest fit like a glove and it was comfortable to wear. My only advise is to use the double stick tape around your chest to secure that you don't flash. Other than that this is a must rent for a Date Night or Girls Night Out. I would consider buying this dress and definitely would rent it again.

A sexy dress perfect for winter affairs!
I rented this dress because I wanted something sexy that was still winter-weather appropriate and this dress knocked it out of the park! My boyfriend couldn't stop talking about how much he loved it and I felt confident all night. Definitely plan on sizing down - I normally wear a 6 and was shocked that the 40 was the best fit for me. Also, I am pretty slight chested and felt comfortable without a bra, but did utilize the fashion tape included. Only drawback on this dress is that I wish I could own it - great dress, RTR!

Comfortable, flattering, and unique
This dress was fantastic. I thought it'd be tough for a dinner out, given the form-fitting material, but it looked chic and alluring even after a multi-course meal! The stripes are a rare breed, in that they actually flatter despite being horizontal! I wore a black bra to accentuate the sheer panels, and loved the result.
