Classy and Sexy
Wore this to my husband's office Christmas party. It's a very quality fabric so even though it's form-fitting, the look is classy and a bit conservative from the front. The back is obviously what makes this dress special. So I didn't feel the WOW factor until I was walking away. The reason I deducted a star is that it's not an easy fit. The nature of the sleeves and the neck closure, front slits, open back requires a lot of adjusting and readjusting throughout the night. I also had an issue with the dress creeping up and the lining peeking out.

The dress arrived on time and the process was easy.
The dress fit well however the lining hung below the dress which I did not like. The top of the dress was amazing. The dress was a little long probably a 4 would have been perfect.

Peek a boo shoulders and a dramatic back make this dress sexy.
Great dress! Hugs your body to create curves for those of us who are straighter. Thick stretchy material makes going braless no big deal, and the shoulders make a girl feel daring and sexy while still staying classy. My only (minor) complaint was that the lining at the hem sometimes snuck below the hem and was visible. I wish I owned this dress!

Incredible dress! Was a hit at my rehearsal dinner!
This dress is not something you see everyday. It is tasteful without being too stuffy, the open back is just gorgeous. The thick fabric is very forgiving. It probably would have been even more slimming with spanx but since I was getting married the next day and would be wearing spanx for maaaany hours, I went without and it was fine. I found it to be a true size 12. The only issue I had was that the hanger straps kept poking out of the back. In hindsight, I should have just ticked them into my strapless bra. Very highly recommend this dress!

Something unique for a LBD
This dress is a high quality thicker material which holds you in all the right places. The arms get a bit weird but once you get used to them it's not bad. Great length.

Sexy
This dress hugged my body in all the right places. Unfortunately, because I'm only 5'1 on a good day, it was much longer than I would have preferred but that's no fault of the dress. The thicker material made it great for a night out on my freezing Feb birthday. Highly recommended!

All eyes on me!
This dress fit like a glove! Wore this to a Las Vegas business dinner and it was perfect. I'm aligned very closely to the CEO and never felt like i was revealing too much. It was perfect for the dinner as the night was unseasonably cool. Love the sleeves, love the fabric as it helps suck you in. Little difficult to get in by yourself but I made it!

Killer dress
To start off, I'm normally a size4-6, but due to the VERY small sizing of this brand, I had to wear a 10. It was slightly large, but absolutely rocking. It's sexy, but not inappropriate. I had compliments all night long--one man even told me I looked magnificent!

Gorgeous and comfortable
Fit perfect at the bust and waist, maybe a little looser at the hips. So comfortable and warm enough for winter. Instantly makes you look elegant with just enough edge.

Incredibly tight from top to bottom but the length is very nice. The cutouts at the shoulders are really cool! I got a lot of compliments on this dress. I would normally wear a 12 but the 10 was all that was available. I made it work with some nice shaping undergarments (definitely recommend). This is a very classy dress.

Smokin' LBD
Sexy & chic. Wore this to my husband's 10 year college reunion. It was a conservative length and covered the arms, with unique cut-outs to show a little skin in the right places and still be sexy without being over-the-top. Curve-hugging all the way - lots of stretch. All that was available was the 10, so I wore Spanx and made it work. Even though the arms were snug, the dress fit comfortably all night due to the stretch in material. So, if one needed to, I think they could get away with a smaller backup size.

Great dress that I felt confident in- only complaint is that the fabric is a bit itchy.

ended up not wearing this dress because it was too big
The fabric on this dress is very stretchy and although the dress is sexy it wasn't flattering on me. It was too long and I usually wear a size 4 but would've benefited from a size 0.

The excellent customer service received by RTR!
The fit runs large so def recommend sizing down. I wore this dress to my friend's bachelorette dinner cruise and after party. Its conservative yet sexy with the cut outs and the open back. Definitely a statement and very complimentary to the figure.

Great dress!
I am usually a 2 or 4, but the two ended up being a little big. The dress is amazing, very slimming, and gives you a very defined waist while still being very comfortable. The sleeves are very cool and make the dress classy yet sexy. It hits just below the knee and is the perfect cocktail dress. I would definitely rent again!

Conservative and Sexy at the same time.
This dress was absolutely wonderful. I definitely agree with other reviewers that it does run large. I am usually an 8, but the 6 fit perfectly. Also, being 6'2" tall, the length of the dress was great - and appropriate for a fall wedding. The 'armpit holes' took a second to get used to, but they really add a hint of fun to an otherwise simple dress. I never knew you could get so many compliments on a dress with a conservative length and neckline. :) I had a blast in the dress and wish it was in my closet permanently.

I felt like a million bucks!
The dress was amazing! The fabric was heavy and stretchy, it felt expensive. It fit great - I wore spanx and pasties and it worked great (you can't wear a regular bra due to the cutouts at the arms). Speaking of those cutouts, I was worried that they would look terrible and that the placement would highlight that little bulge that some of us (who, me?) have at our armpit. Not the case at all, and that cutout is actually really flattering! I do think that the dress ran just the tiniest bit big (or maybe just more true-to-size than most formal dresses which seem to run small!). I could have worn the size 10, but it would have been super tight. I would suggest going against the grain and ordering your second size as a size down for this one.

Fit Very Oddly
I was unable to wear this dress when I received it. The stomach and hip area felt fine if a bit loose (size 4 with wider hips), the arms were very tight and I have skinny arms, and the sides of the chest were so loose it was indecent. I tried to fabric tape the sides down, but it made it pucker oddly. The back was nice, but the hook at the top of the zipper was hanging on by a thread and made it feel not very secure. Also the material in person was not as nice as I thought it would be. It's a unique and pretty dress but the fit was very unfortunate.

This dress was SEXY
Sexy but modest, I loved it. This dress turns heads left and right. I wore it salsa dancing the length was modest but the back is what makes it sexy and the front is very unique. The only thing is the shoulders were a little baggy, and it kept coming unhooked. Besides that AMAZING DRESS.

Very unique and flattering cut!
This dress does seem to run a little small, but the next size up fit perfectly. The dress is a thicker stretchy jersey-type material and is lined, so it's very flattering. The only issue I had is that the hook at the back of the neck holding the sleeves up kept coming unhooked (I think the hook is bent, and I could have easily fixed it but didn't have the opportunity).

Formal party
I rented this dress for party and was so sad it didn't fit well, I ended up going with something out of my closet instead. The arm cut-outs contributed to a really awkward fit and created the illusion of fat armpits. The material had more stretch than I imagined but hugged all the wrong places.

Very Conservative
It fits true to size, hugs the body nicely but I felt comp;et;y boring in it even after accessories, hair and make up and I didn't wear it. It would be good for a work event or religious event. I found it minimized my breasts also. Large breasted women would feel supported and slimmed in the chest.

This dress was classically stunning. I received compliments from men and women alike! The dress does run long, but I loved that about it. It does not require slimming undergarments as it keeps everything nice and tucked tight. I wore with statement earrings and an updo for a dramatic look.

I loved this dress. Lots of compliments. Would love to wear it again. That being said, the skirt went all the way to my knees, so I don't know how anybody who isn't very tall would feel about that.

I absolutely loved this dress. It was just stunning. I received so many compliments on it!
It was so luxurious. The material felt rich and it was very nicely made. My only complaint is the hook & eye closure behind the neck kind of dug into my skin a bit. I also had to shorten it with hemming tape, but other than that it was amazing.

Sensational quality, totally edgy, understated, chic!!
Women appreciate this dress more than men so don't get this for a date unless it's for an ultra conservative event. This dress is not cocktail attire either. But if you want to WOW at a high-profile business meeting you will totally dominate in this number. The back is sexy, your shoulder blades are exposed so bra straps are a no-no. Wear it with colossally tall heels and either a chic clutch or bag. I wore it with a large Hermes cuff over the fabric and a Jimmy Choo motorcycle bag and felt like a million bucks for my business dinner with both men and women. I am normally a size 00, so the 0 was a bit baggy around the hips by the end of the evening - a problem I'm sure is fixed each time it's dry cleaned. I am 100% renting this again. The fabric is heavy and warm - great for a winter meeting. Not great for a hot summer day. One of my RTR favorites!

Loved it!
I usually wear a 4 or 6 depending on the fit of the dress. There was no 6 available so I went with the four. Although it was a bit snug I fit fine and was really comfortable. The fabric is really forgiving and feels great. It is a bit longer than I expected but with heels it looks perfect. I wore this out on Valentine's Day and got lots of compliments! I would definitely wear it again.

I was told to "WERKK HONEY, YOU ARE FIERCE!" This dress made Valentines Weekend awesome.
The fit was great, but it was a nightmare trying to get the dress on without help. The clasp on the neck was kind of bothersome too.
