I am in love with this dress. Flattered my larger (D) bust, showed off my legs, hid my belly, super elegant. Got too much compliments to count!

This dress is universally flattering and a very classic ladylike silhouette. The only difference from the picture is the sash does not hang down asymetrically as it looks on website.

Loved this dress! It fit perfectly with a strapless bra and ran true to size. Wore it to a black tie wedding and received a ton of compliments. There's a lot of structure to the dress so I think it would look great on most shapes.

A simple, elegant dress that is beautifully constructed. I wore this to a black tie event with the Mini Jagger earrings and Janis Savitt crystal knot bracelet - loved everything! I normally wear a size 2 or 4, and the 2 was a perfect fit in this dress.

Gorgeous dress - photographs very nicely. I wore to a black tie holiday party and received many complements. As a warning the bust fits slightly larger than other designers so either wear a strapless bra OR get some double sided tape. The rest of the dress fit perfectly. The roushing is starting to come undone (I wore a size 4)...probably from so much wear but it really is a gorgeous dress. RTR added this dress to my order last minute with no extra cost when my original choice was returned in an 'unwearable' manner from its previous renter - I appreciated the customer service!

I was very excited to wear this dress to an event and was disappointed to find that neither of the sizes worked for me. The pleats in the back looked like they were backward and stuck out in an unflattering way. The bigger size fit everywhere but the bust. I am a B cup and couldn't come close to filling in the dress without at least a D.

Cute dress, but WARNING: needs a push-up bra. I wear a 32-C but it looked loose until I put on a push-up. Also, wish it came in size 0!

I LOVE this dress. I wore it to black tie event in the Spring, and it is so incredibly flattering (and comfortable!). It hid my poochie tummy, and I didn't even need to wear Spanx or feel the need to suck it in all night. Beautiful dress - pricey rental, but worth it!

Rent this dress! It is so flattering, and would look good on lots of different body types. The lines of the dress take the eye in all the right directions. Prepare to wear a push up bra (and possibly use double stick tape) to fill out the top unless you are pretty busty (my 34C did not fill a size 4.) My only concern is that the folds are getting a little loose and don't stand up quite as well as they do in the picture - but regardless, this is still a great dress.

Loved this dress! I have no hips and felt that the detail on the side made me appear curvy in all the right places. So comfortable and easy to dance in. Also fit perfectly in the bust. Received compliments all night!

This dress was amazing! It fit like a glove! I wore it to my cousin's wedding and couldn't have asked for a better outfit. Looked great with my Badgley Mischka earrings!

I received so many compliments on this dress!

This dress is fantastic...I wore it about 4 months pregnant and it really flattered my body. I have a larger chest (34DD), so I filled out the 4 just fine, but I could definitely see someone with a smaller bust needing a push up or padded bra with this dress.

Pretty dress but big on top

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This was a back up dress for me. I usually wear a size 2 or a 4 depending on the brand. This dress in size 2 was definitely large on the top. I wore a bustier underneath it to fill it up. The bottom half fit well and was very pretty.

My sister suggested it to me because she rented a Moschino Cheap and Chic dress- it was awesome! Loved telling people that my dress was worth so much money!

I rented this dress for my cousins sweet 16. My sister also rented one. It was amazing and so flattering! I would definitely rent it again. I normally wear a size 4, and the 4 fit perfectly. Really made me look like I had killer curves.

This dress was just as a back up. I'm usually between a 6 and 8 but I have some hips and a bottom! I couldn't get it on sadly. It was so pretty!

This is just a personal preference, it was a little short for my comfort level, otherwise I was very happy with the fit. I received many compliments.

I rented this dress last minute when my original dress was unable to ship on time. I wore it to a New Years Eve party and felt great in it! The only thing that was a bit uncomfortable was a wire that kept poking me in the side. Other then that, it was a beautiful twist on the classic black dress!

Fit was true to size. My only gripe was that it started to fall down a little part way through the night, so I may have been able to go down a size. I would recommend this dress and would rent it again!

Gorgeous dress but runs large

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large

Loved this dress but it was too big to wear. I ordered the size 2 because there was no size 0 and unfortunately it was huge. I ended up wearing my back up dress which was gorgeous and made by the same designer.

It fit incredible, mind you I was coming off of a ten pound weight loss, so things were fitting great and I was pleased. The dress is sexy, you don't feel like its falling or you are slipping out of it-- and its silky, classy. Turn heads in this dress-- worth the money!
