AMAZING customer service from Crystal E when requested the next size up New dress days before event

This dress runs small. I would recommend ordering the size up from your normal size and the next size up from that as your backup! The arms are definitely tight, so if you want to dance, I wouldn't recommend this dress!

Gorgeous dress!

Beautiful cut - elegant and flattering. It definitely runs small, though. I'm usually a dress size 2-4, and I ordered sizes 4 and 6. Spanx help!

Classic Beauty!

I loved this dress so much I may very well rent it again! It's absolutely gorgeous and so well made. Definitely a form fitting, but also extremely flattering - hugs curves in all the right places. BE SURE TO SIZE UP. I read numerous reviews on RTR and retailers that carried the dress and they all say the same. I'm usually a 0 and the 2 was perfect (I'm 5'4" and 115 for reference). I honestly feel like the dress is such a beautiful cut and so well tailored that it would be lovely on all shapes and sizes. Highly recommend!

Odd cut

Oddly shaped dress. I found it huge in the body but somehow still super tight in the arms and across the chest. Did not wear

I received so many comments from my friends about my dress - it was perfect!

As a petite girl, I'm always nervous about finding stuff that fits. Thankfully, this dress fit perfectly! I never had to worry about wardrobe malfunctions or finding a tailor. The only downside was it was extremely tight, so if you plan on eating a lot, this might not be the dress for you.

Great color. Very form fitting! Felt very sexy and classy.

Arms were a bit tight. I felt like a Tyrannosaurus rex unable to lift my arms up. The hanging straps kept falling out all night regardless of pushing them back down.

So many complements!

The fit was amazing but I am definitely glad I read the reviews and ordered up a size. I am normally a true 4 and the 6 fit me perfectly. If I would've stuck with a 4, there's no way I'd be able to zip the dress. Felt classy all night and was able to dance around with ease. Honestly- would 100% rent another Cinque dress after this!

Very classy but sexy

This dress fit beautifully, it was tight but not too tight to the point that I couldn't breath or eat whatever I wanted. The material is thick. I'm 107lb 5'3 and I wore size 0. I tried on size 2 as a backup but the chest was too big and loose and I wanted a more form fitting look. The dress is very classy and I would rent it again!! Much better on than in pics.

Fit nicely

Didn't end up wearing it because wasn't quite what I was looking for, but I did like it. Felt sexy. Was thick and nice material. Hd grippers lining the bust so it stayed up and I didn't have to keep lifting bust up.

Dress came in easy assessable case!

Dress is amazing! Size up 2-3 size. I ordered this in a 6 but actually wore it in black in a 10. For busty gals- I still wore a strapless but had to keep pulling the top up. Dress is difficult to dance in since you can't move your arms. Overall though I loved the dress! Great fit, fabric, and quality.

Fancy Date Night

Normally a size 4/6 but rented a size 8 and it was snug. My arms barely fit and my arms are not on the large size. It's super sexy though and perfect for a fancy date night.

Pretty dress, runs small

Rented this to try for a formal wedding. I'm 32DDD and usually wear a 4.... sometimes 2 or 6. Could not zip up the 4 past the bust. Quality seemed nice, but I would size up if you're busty.

I faithfully wear a size 8, but had to forgo wearing this dress because it was too tight. Super bummed. I highly recommend sizing up on this one!

Sized up 1 size, but I wonder if that made the sleeves and bodice a bit loose.

Gorgeous and flattering on top. Full coverage, at least for small-chested wearers (though I did wear a strapless bra). Following many other reviews, I sized up one size, and I'm glad I did--at least for everything below the chest. The dress hugged me, but I didn't feel squeezed in. However, it was still a bit difficult to make big movements. Also, I do think that sizing up made the chest and arms a tad loose. It still fit, but I did feel a slight separation between my skin and the fabric all across the top when I was just sitting or standing still. For a shorter wearer (5'1") it was *just* at the line where it didn't make me look shorter than I am (wearing heels). If it had been a millimeter longer, though, It would have been too long.

This dress was everything!

This dress looked AMAZING but my only complaint is the hanger/garment strings kept coming out the top of the dress. I even taped them down before the wedding and the tape eventually came off and the loops/strings kept sticking out. I had to keep pushing them down all night. It was really annoying and I expected more of a RTR dress! If you can get really good tape to tape them down, you should be set. I am 5'7" 128 with a small upper body and curvy lower body and the 6 fit me great.

Rented for a baby shower as a backup

The dress runs way small. I'm normally a 6 and sized up to an 8 according to other reviewers' experiences. The 8 was too small as well, my arms just fit through the sleeves.

Got this dress for a wedding

I am normally a size 2-4 and I ordered this dress in a 4. I wasn't even able to zip it up halfway. The hips and the body fit, however, apparently not meant for anyone with semi-broad shoulders even if thin. It was a beautiful dress, I wish I could have worn it.

n/a

Sadly, I was not able to wear this. The dress was beautiful, and I read all the previous reviews saying that it runs small. So I sized up, but it still did not fit. I would strongly suggest sizing up by at least 2 sizes for this dress.

Not flattering on larger chest

The cut of the dress wasn’t flattering as the tight arms and chest flattened the chest in an unattractive way. The body fit snug. Very cute dress, but just not for me. Did not wear.

My normal dress size is a 4 at stores like Loft and Banana Republic (a 2 in some cases). This 6 was so tight I could barely sit down. Looks like it would have been a lovely dress, though. Thick fabric, anti-slip lining on shoulders - color true to the photo. Very pretty.

Perfect for a sit down gala/fundraiser event

As everyone says, this dress runs very small. I wear a size 4 jeans, small/med shirt, and a size 6 dress. Based on the reviews, I ordered an 8. It was so tight to zip, although fit great in the body. I ended up sending it back for a 10. It is gorgeous. It is a very thick fabric that hides imperfections. I wouldn't wear it to a wedding or fun event that would involve dancing because lifting your arms is not easy. It was perfect for a formal fundraiser/gala sit down dinner event.

I did not have a chance to wear due to size.

I normally wear a size 4 in dresses. This was so tight would not zipper. I think even a 6 would of been too small. Order up a size or two higher than normal. There was a small mark on front of dress but would of been pretty for wedding.

Simple and elegant red dress!

I love this comfy dress by Cinq à Sept! Running true to size with no stretch, I recommend wearing your true size for your primary size and going up for your back up. This style is fitted throughout the midsection and fitted at the hips. It works for cup sizes A-C. You are not able to wear a standard bra with this dress so you should wear nubra or strapless bra since there is an open back. At 5’4”, the length hit the knee on me. The color of the dress is amazing in person and would add a pop of color to any room! Pair with black, metallic, or nude heels and fun earrings to complete your outfit!

This dress fit like a glove!

Flattering shape and color. A classic dress perfect for the black tie gala I attended. I have a smaller chest and was worried about filled out the top of the dress, but with a strapless bra it fit perfectly. Nice, comfortable material with no pinching or riding up. I was worried about sizing with the reviews saying it ran small, but I wore my normal dress size and it fit wonderfully. Overall a great dress!

I didn't wear the dress

the dress was very tight in the sleeves, to the point I almost couldn't keep them high enough to keep the chest on. The chest was snug as were the hips. The waist looked good in the front but gaped majorly in the back. This would be better for someone with narrower shoulders and a shorter waist, perhaps also a little less curvaceous. The dress is beautiful and it's a nice thick, forgiving stretch fabric. I wish it had fit!

Perfect, Fits like a glove! Easily one of my favorite dresses rented!

Event's attire: Cocktail. Paired with: Nude pumps, a multistrand faux pearl necklace, a gold/pearl bracelet, and the Metallic Etched Box Clutch/Sondra Roberts clutch (also available on RTR) Was I best dressed? Obviously Pros: Fit, Color, Cut, everything is a plus. I wish I could have kept the dress. Cons: There are 3 cons but none are dealbreakers. 1) The dress doesn't allow for a lot of movement. Sitting can be done but your strides may be shorter than usual. When getting in cars or out, you need to use the sit/fall & swivel move. 2) The dress also had a habit of riding up and bunching so I was frequently pulling it back down. 3) I am a stick figure with narrow hips and I was just barely able to pull the dress up to use the restroom. I suppose I could have undone the zipper but I would have needed a friend to help unzip and rezip (which, considering how much I loved the dress - is a price I would have paid). FYI: I went braless to the event and had no worry whatsoever about any accidental flashing the other guests. However, the dress probably would have looked even better had I worn a strapless bra. No bra/small boobs = no top boob cleavage. The dress looked great without a bra but again, it's personal preference. I just didn't have a strapless bra nor was I going to buy one for this last minute event. (In the photo with the pearls, the dress is only halfway zipped which is why the fit looks off.)
