LOVE THIS DRESS

I will definitely rent this again though in an 8. I usually get a 10 dresses that are fitted through the hips, and have worn a Catherine Deane dress in a 10 before, but was definitely large through the hips and extra large for me on top. I wore it anyway because it is gorgeous. Beautiful lace, quality construction.

My favorite RTR SO FAR!!!

This dress is AMAZING! I was skeptical at first bc there were no reviews... it is fairly new. I always like to see photos of real people in the dress before I rent it. Seriously the best dress ever. I never wear this length but it was perfect. No need for a bra. Bodice is perfectly constructed. Loved it!! I ordered up bc this designer seems to run small on me but it was not needed. Totally comfortable in it all night.

absolutely gorgeous. The size I got was too large so didn't wear, but plan to rent in smaller size

I think it might run a little big, but I am smaller up top and bigger in the hip area. Very open on top, but surprisingly I did't feel like it was too much cleavage (again, i have a small chest).

Fit true to size. The zipper was a bit tricky and for my size the top fit a bit large.

Beautiful lace, runs a little large

Pictures do not do the lace justice. However, it ran a little large. I wasn't able to fill out the top, but bigger chested girls will love it. Also, not really a con, but it was more formal that I was anticipating. I was hoping to wear to a nice dinner for an anniversary date, but it came off more like a gown.

Gorgeous and unique

Wow! What an exquisite dress. I was a little wary since it only had one review at the time I rented, but I'm so glad I got it. I wore this for my wedding rehearsal, dinner, and welcome drinks. It was stunning in person and very well made. People didn't stop complimenting me all night! Of course I was the bride so that didn't hurt, but this dress sure was a stunner. I did have to do a bit of contortion to get the zipper all the way up (there is a lot of fabric at the waist which always makes zippers tough) but it worked. I accessorized with a black and gold choker and gold wedges. Love this RTR!

Beautiful dress!

This dress caught my eye online and it did just that in person. It was striking. I liked the longer length for a formal affair, however was slightly longer on me than the model. I initially thought I would need the 2 based on reviews but it was tight on top so I went with the 4. Fit better but was not tight throughout the hips but still the overall fit was great. The adjustable straps make for added comfort. My only complaint was the zipper. On the hanger it worked fine but when on me I required 2 more sets of hands to get it passed the seam. Beautiful dress, loved how I felt in it and received so many compliments.

I absolutely loved this dress!! It hugs the body in all the right places, accentuates your curves and is extremely flattering. Plus, I was comfortable, able to dance, and didn't have to wear a bra! I would definitely rent again!

Loved the lace

I was obsessed with how this dress looked on the model and had to try. It's a beautiful dress, but just a couple things I didn't love. I am normally a size 6 or 8 and have a large bust 34DD, and based on reviews I had wanted to order a 6 but only the 8 was available. The 8 worked, but it was looser in the hip and bust area than I would have liked. The waist however where the white and black fabric meet has zero stretch and was a little tight so it's possible the 6 may not have worked. Like other reviews we struggled in the seam area to get the zipper up. It was a great length though. I am 5'4" and it hit just above ankle, which I liked because it covered my pale legs :) but still had some sex appeal with the see through lace. Just wish it would have had a tighter fit overall.

Comfortable, sexy, and elegant

I wore this for my rehearsal dinner and absolutely loved it! The bodice is thick enough that I didn't need a bra. The lace is less delicate looking than I thought from the pictures, but equally beautiful. I got tons of compliments (even from a stranger on the street) and was told that the dress was stunning!

Beautiful dress!

Wore this for my evening cocktail bridal shower. I felt stylish and comfortable, yet sexy and feminine. Longer length, so not great for shorter ladies. I'm 5'7" and wore 4" nude heels - hits mid-calf. Fits true to size.

Perfect

Zipper is terrible but dress is worth it, dress is longer then shown on model. Love the added in padding, you could go bra less if you wanted. Would rent again. Wish I could keep it.

.

This dress is absolutely beautiful. I've never received so many compliments in my life. I am 5'3" , 123 pounds. I ordered sizes 4 and 6. The 4 did not fit around my bust (34C) so I had to wear the size 6, which fit perfectly. If you are petite, with a smaller bust, the 4 should fit fine. I would also order the 6 as a back up.

Beautiful dress, awful zipper

This dress was a complete stunner! I had compliments all night. It fit really well, but I had to get the next size up. The only negative was the zipper. It took me an hour to zip up!! It was jammed at the seam where the black meets the white fabric. I literally have blisters on my fingers from trying to get it to zip. This is the only reason I was disappointed, but it was a huge reason why I would not recommend this dress. Unless you have someone to help you or the patience to deal with a poorly made zipper, go for it! Good luck.

The dress has adjustable straps and is padded. Fitted at the waist and goes below the knee. Only problem is the zipper is tough to zip.

Gorgeous but long

Such a high quality beautiful dress.. but be warned if your over 5'7 it's probably going to be way too long on you. It was a tad bit long for me but it was too beautiful not to wear

Beautiful, classy dress

I'm normally a size 4-6, but the only sizes available were a 4 and an 8 and the 8 worked out perfectly! I'm busty (34DDD) and there is zero stretch in the band that connects the top to the bottom, so while the 4 fit everywhere else, I couldn't zip it to the top. Beware that the zipper on this dress is tough- my boyfriend got a blister from helping me zip it. Other than that it's a gorgeous dress and I received a ton of compliments! I wore it to a summer black tie optional wedding and it was perfect.

Gorg and unique dress!

Beautiful dress. When I rented, 10 was only size available but I probably would have sized down for my bonus size. I echo a previous review that noted the chest area is very large but the band b/w white top and black lace bottom has no stretch to it so an 8 may have been too tight. Luckily, the straps are adjustable and I had to wear it on the tightest fitting. Regarding the zipper, I was looking at FAQs on the website before dress arrived and it noted the zippers on all the dresses can get "tough" because they are dry cleaned so much. They recommended using a bar soap on the zipper to loosen it up. Needless to say, when it arrived, me and my friend couldn't get the zipper to budge but used the soap trick and it worked fine! The material is thick but I didn't feel like it added extra bulk which I was worried about. I also worried about the dress being too low cut or that the nude liner underneath would be too short- I thought the cut was appropriate (didn't feel at all self conscious in church) and the liner was a perfect length. I do echo the comments about it being longer than it looks in the main picture. At 5'11, I was surprised by how long it is...I'd say it's even longer than traditional tea dress length so keep that in mind!

I didn't wear this dress as I needed 1 size bigger but it wasn't available. I sure wish it had been though as this dress is absolutely gorgeous. It's very flattering and even though is fitted didn't show any bulges or tummy issues. I will definitely rent again in my correct size when needing a dress next time.

Perfect dress for rehearsal dinner!

This dress is GORGEOUS! I would absolutely rent this again in a heartbeat. This fits true to size. The zipper stuck pretty bad on both the 2 & the 4 so I had to turn the dress -zipper to the front just to get it on and then move it back into position. Other than that, I had no other complaints! The straps are adjustable which was great. Strapless bra is optional. I used a Lnabni strapless adhesive bra and it was perfect. I would give this 10 stars if I could!

Gorgeous, comfortable dress!

The lace is lovely and the material gives a flattering stretch for all body types! I really enjoyed wearing it. You do not need to wear a bra. The zipper is no joke though. My husband got a blister trying to zip it for me. I found when I did it myself and just envisioned moving the zipper little by little as opposed to trying to yank it all the way up all at once, it was much easier.

Beautiful quality. Tons of compliments.

Beautifully detailed, stunning dress! Compliments all night long. The one big negative was the zipper (as mentioned in previous reviews). I would say it's pretty much impossible to zip on your own. It took my boyfriend a good 15 minutes to get it zipped. It's just the way the material works with the zipper. It has to be turned in to zip. Once on though, it's beautiful. Size 4 was perfect.

The pattern in the lace is so unique and added the right amount of texture for our engagement photos

I originally tried this dress on in all white at BHLDN, so I knew the fit is what I was looking for. I think the black and white dress is much nicer than the all-white! It is a very classy dress, and I would definitely wear it again. I ordered both the 10 and the 12, and the 10 worked perfectly with a strapless bra underneath. The straps are a little flimsy, but I have long hair so it didn't really matter. The zipper is a nightmare, be sure to have someone help you, otherwise you will struggle like I did for 10 minutes.

CUTE dress!!

Loved this dress but without a doubt, the top runs very very big. I'm a chesty girl and I found myself (like in the pic!) showing off a little but of my strapless bra. Outside of that, it's really stunning in person. I got so many compliments. I am not sure if a size down would work for me as I am hippy - but it worked and I had fun wearing it.

First Time using RTR!!!

This was my first experience using RTR and I wish i tried it sooner!! Safe to say I will be using it for all my formal affairs in the future! I got the 8 and 10 in this dress and the 8 fit perfectly. The straps needed to be straightened a little and the zipper is a nightmare. I tried for over 10 minutes and the help of my neighbor to get it past the "struggle spot" right below the bust line. I got so many compliments the entire night and being a 34DD it was so nice to not have to wear a bra! Felt completely supported in this dress!!!

Gorgeous!

This dress is stunning but has no stretch in the black band. I mostly wear a two and the two was small! The four was perfect and I had no zipper issues but the band wasn't terribly tight to my body, which probably helped. It photographs well and is very flattering if you are tall!

The most beautiful dress I have ever worn!

Amazing. Stunning. Fabulous. This dress is everything! If I could own this dress, I would in a heartbeat. The detail is phenomenal and the fit hit my body in all the right places. It's sexy and elegant at the same time and I was getting compliments all night long at the wedding I attended. One downside is the zipper is a tad difficult to get up so you'll need some help from someone else there. Other than that, rent.this.dress. You will not be disappointed!

RTR Team Review

This dress is STUNNING! The detail is fabulous and it’s very flattering. This dress fits true to size. I am usually a size 4 and I wore a size 6 and it was slightly big. Definitely could still wear it though. The fabric has no stretch so curvier women should consider sizing up. It’s tea length and should be worn with a strapless bra. I would definitely recommend this dress -- LOVED.

Great, but falling apart :(

This dress was gorgeous but falling apart :( see attached pic of the zipper. The lace was also pulling off of one of the straps and hung sadly off of the strap all night. Otherwise it's beautiful and I got so many compliments, just bummed at the super obvious tearing on the side. Please note this had nothing to do with fit, it fit great- this is the lace pulling away from the zipper area.

One of my favorite RTR rentals.

One of my favorite RTR rentals. Would be fun with some colorful earrings and/or shoes (though I did not go that route myself). Fit true to size; no stretch in the fabric. It hit a little longer on me than in the model's photos (I mean duh, I'm not a model's height, but perhaps worth knowing that it hits just above the ankle rather than at tea length). It was about 100 degrees outside at the wedding I wore this to, and there were no visible signs on the dress of how sweaty / swampy I was :)

LOVED this dress!! Even tho 2 other girls had on the same dress I still got a ton of compliments.

Only issue was the zipper. The dress was not too tight... even my backup size (which was too big) I still had issues with the zipper

Were you able to get the zipper to work? I have the same issue with the dress I ordered. The zipper only closes half way.
