Would rent again!
Rented this for two separate banquets in one weekend, and it fit like a glove. The length makes it classy yet the cool cut still gives you an edgy look. Fabric is thicker and really sucks everything in well!

ALL EYES ON YOU!
Let me start off by saying, if you have big boobs and a smaller waist like myself, you may have trouble zipping the dress. It's quite snug in the boob area. However, I couldn't have looked more amazing. Ultra sexy, ultra slim, all-around stunning dress. I'm 5'8" and the dress hit my knee so it was sexy but not vulgar. Loved it.

Simple, chic, fashionable
This is a snug-fitting dress, but oh so chic! I'm typically a 0/2, but in Bardot, I wore the 4. The 2 fit, but showed every little lump, so the 4 was a bit more forgiving. I paired this with my Japanese kimono for a Japanese-themed formal dinner and the dress was the perfect complement. Have your Spanx and strapless bra at the ready and plan for pix before siting ... the "sit lines" wrinkled and were a bit unflattering in later pix. Love the dress and I would totally rent it again.

I rented this dress as a backup, but after trying it on, it was the only option. Fantastic Dress!!
This dress is elegant and sexy! The pictures don't do it justice. The dress is very tight (which I like) but you may want to get a size up as you may be slightly uncomfortable. I would highly recommend this dress for any event.

I loved this dress and I got plenty of compliments. It is pretty darn snug though.
Length was great. I am 5'6" and it came to right above my knees. Definitely a better dress for hourglass figures -- really snug in the waist (which is good for showing off curves). Also, if you are busty it may be tight, so you might want to try going braless.

Classy
I felt gorgeous in this dress. Sexy, but classy. The cut on top seems a little more severe than it looks in the picture- but gives the dress great style. Loved it. I'm normally a size 4 in most dresses, but was glad I had the backup size 6 to pick. I could get the 4 on, but it was clingy when I walked. The 6 was a more flattering fit.

Bridal by morning and vixen by night. Changed into this after morning wedding ceremony.
Extremely form fitting, yet comfortable dress (if you don't mind keeping your tummy tucked in all night). Probably looks better on a B cup and brings "Basic Instinct" Sharon Stone to mind.

Perfect dress for a white cocktail event
Definitely size up and get the right undergarments. This dress is gorgeous but not forgiving. Thankfully, the fabric has a little stretch, and it's thick enough to not be translucent.

Perfect bachelorette party dress!
I loved this dress, which I wore for my bachelorette party. It was so fun and flattering. Just the right amount of sass, in the tightness of the dress, but still classy because it's not low cut or too short. I am usually a size 2, but I rented the size 4 based on other reviews. It fit perfectly.

Sexy and sophisticated bachlorette!
Loved the dress! I found I was between sizes, where the 0 felt just a smidgen tight and the 2 was a bit big looking. At 5'0", the length probably could have come up just a little, but all in all it was a great dress for my bachorette!

Stunning dress. Sophisticated and sexy.
I wore this dress for my rehearsal dinner and it was perfect. The 6 fit but I opted for the 8 just to make sue I was comfortable and because I wasn't wearing spanx. Would definitely wear this again.

Sexy and sophisticated!
I swear, RTR has hit the nail on the head with every one of my rentals, and this dress was no exception! I read the reviews this dress runs small, so my extra was one size up. There is NO room for stretch in the fabric, so the size up was perfect. But be sure to wear your spanx because you can't hide any details under this dress!

incredible fit, gorgeous cut.
I rented this for my wedding rehearsal cocktail dinner: it was perfect. The fit runs a bit small- I normally wear a 6, but wore an 8 in this dress. The 6 fit, but was painted on, and in bright white it seemed trashy. So I wore the 8, and was absolutely delighted. It's definitely cut for an hourglass figure, and I made a mental note not to eat too much!!! :)

Runs really small - too small to wear, unfortunately
I always wear a 6 or 8 in dresses, so I got this in both of those sizes. However, neither fit. The 8 was too tight to relax in which is really too bad because it was gorgeous! This is definitely something I would want to wear in the future, I'm just really disappointed that I wasted my money on these sizes. I had to go with my back-up dress for my night out.

I wore this amazing form fitting off white dress to Dinner en Blanc 2013 in NYC...it was perfect
This is a great dress to wear if you want to be noticed.....it is quite form fitting and enhances your figure.....because of the color...and fit...do not think you can wear spanx like garments underneath....you would see the lines.....that is an FYI

Fit like a glove!
Pulls you in at all the right spots. I didn't want to give it up when it came time to send it back. Of course, since it's white, beware of rowdy party guests that may cause a stain or two. Luckily RTR does the dry cleaning!

The professional model in the RTR picture doesn't do this dress justice!
Love love love this dress. It was very form fitting in the 2 so I ended up wearing the 4 so I could dance, sit and eat comfortably. The neckline is beautiful and I decided to go the non-traditional route by pairing it with only statement earrings and no necklace. It definitely worked! I felt amazing in this dress - sexy but still classy.

20s Movie Star Dress for Gatsby Party!
I rented this dress for a Gastby-themed party because I thought it looked like a 20s movie star and went great with all of the 20s accessories that I got. I am normally a 0 in dresses, but I ended up wearing the 2 in this because the 0 was so tight I was afraid the zipper was going to get messed up. The material was a little different than I thought it would be... I thought it was more jersey, but it was a bit heavier than expected. It was very nice though and different than what everyone else chose to wear to the party!

Classy, classy, classy!
Rented this dress for my City Hall wedding in NYC! Got it the night before and was a little nervous about the fit, but thankfully, the reviews mentioned it ran small. I fit perfectly in a size 4, and it was such a classic dress. Paired with some blue shoes and a RTR clutch and I was good to go! Only issue was the slit - I felt like if I moved around too much, the stitching would rip (appeared to be pulling once I put on).

Runs small
I usually wear a 6 or 8 comfortably. I wore the 8 this time and it was extremely tight. I expected it to be tight fitting but not scrunch up, which was not flattering.

I didn't end up wearing this because it ran small, I am usually a size 2 or 4 but in this I needed a 6! I'll be rerenting for another event in the correct size!

Fit like a Glove!
This dress is absolutely phenomenal. I rented it for a birthday party where you had to wear white and accessorize with yellow. You can tell the dress is made for women with curves. I usually wear a size 6 in dresses, but unfortunately that was unavailable last minute, so I ended up wearing my back up size 8. It fit like glove, and hugged me in all the right places. I have a small waist and wider hips, so it accentuates that. The dress is super sexy and is a thicker material so it will hold you in. As other reviewers have mentioned you can't be body conscious in this dress. It shows everything! I couldn't wear a bra or underwear so don’t even think about wearing spanx. I got tons of compliments all night. If you need a hot white dress for party, this is it!

Perfect Bachelorette Dress!
I was a little nervous because my backup size wasn't available but I made this one work! It was very form fitting, but perfect for my Miami bachelorette party. The fabric was thick with a slight stretch which smoothed everything out. On any other occasion I would have wanted to size up, but it worked out for this event :)

Little tight around hips. I usually wear a 4 so glad I received two sizes because the 4 wouldn't of worked at all!!!

Sexy but still classy
I wore this to a couples engagement party thrown for me and my now-husband. It was a classy event but I still wanted to feel sexy and comfortable in the middle of summer. This was perfect. The dress is extremely tight (I sized up) but the material does a good job of not showing too much (I didn't wear spanks). The racer back is so fun, and the slit goes up just high enough ;) The higher neck begs for jewelry so I would definitely recommend if you end up renting this. I can't wait to have an excuse to rent the purple version of this dress!

Many compliments
This dress is gorgeous. It is so simple, yet is really shined. I received so many compliments. It definitely runs small and is very fitting, so it shows all your curves. I would definitely rent again or perhaps even buy. I know it comes in other colors as well, but white in the summer is my favorite.

Great tailoring
I have a small waist and this dress fit really well through the body. If you are a C cup or more it'll be a little tight so you may want to size up. It was my backup dress so I went with my original choice but I will rent it in the future.

I sadly returned the Item because it looked a lot different on the model than on my body,
Its a great dress, I'm extremely petite and it worked well for a small body but it wasn't the length on me that it was on this model (obviously) which made me return it
