Sexy but sophisticated!
I wore this to a 30th birthday party for a friend. It was the perfect mix of sexy (thank you cleavage-teasing mesh) and sophisticated. It was comfortable and made from great material. My only complaint was that the v neck hem fabric would flip out under the mesh, making it look like my bra was exposed. Just make sure to have a friend who can alert you, should this happen!

Interesting and unique with a little bit of sexy. Great option instead of the LBD.
I absolutely loved this dress. I wore it to my boyfriend's work holiday party and thought it was perfect. I wore the size 2, and would say it runs a bit big. The fabric has some stretch to it and was thick enough for me to feel comfortable wearing it in December. The slit and sheer in the front came down quite low. Had it been a different event, I probably wouldn't have had an issue with it. Because it was a work event, I wore a black strapless bra. You could see the black fabric through the sheer panel, but I felt more comfortable with that. I wore a pair of black tights and black pumps with a gold accent. This is one of the first dresses from RTR that I seriously considered buying!

Loved the fit, super flattering!
This is a great dress! Wish I could purchase it! Very flattering and SO comphy!! I just had a baby so feeling comfortable in a more fitted dress was such a plus. I usually wear a 10 but went with the 8 because it just fit a little better. Only con I had was that the dress somewhat looks like it's been rented one too many times and is starting to fad a bit. Overall, I would rent again.

Cute but not wow
Cute but I had cuter things as back up. The waist area was a little wonky. Nice enough but not wow.

So many complements on the mesh top and color of dress!
Fits perfect at the top runs a little legs in the middle but I wore spanx as well because it does show everything. Not too think wore to a hot end of September wedding. Great dress overall!

Beautiful and comfy!
This dress was actually a replacement dress for my order because a size was unavailable. Last minute I picked this and I am so glad I did! I wore this to a wedding with an outdoor reception during warm weather. The dress is very breathable and the color is so unique! Definitely a pop against all the black dresses. I loved the mesh top because it made the dress a little sexy but not so much I couldn't wear in a church. Would definitely rent again!

Perfect for Tiffany themed Baby Shower!
This dress is super cute, but definitely on the casual side. I recommend for daytime party or nice dinner. I wore a black strapless and was fine with it. To me it blended with the mesh. No spanx needed, very flattering. I received tons of compliments and the dress is comfortable! Absolutely a winner!

It does run large so if you get two sizes, definitely go smaller. I normally wear a 10, but the 8 fit perfectly.

It was my first rental and I could not have have been more thrilled!
I rented a size 2 with a 0 as a back up. I ended up wearing the 0 and it fit perfectly! It was comfortable and I felt great in it.

Casual dress
I unfortunately didn't get to wear the dress because even the size 0 was too big (I'm 5'5", 110lbs and 34B). On top of that, the dress was not the fabric I was expecting at all, it was more of a cotton type material so I would have felt under dressed at a wedding. The dress was also long for my taste hitting right at the knee (not above).

Classy & sexy!
Loved this dress, thought it looked great! I would have worn the 6, but the day before the dresses were to arrive I was notified the 6 was no longer available, so only the 8 would be coming. Still was very happy with the rental. However I didn't get any photos in the dress :(

Elegant and sexy
Fit well, but small. Usually I wear a 2 in dresses, and debated between getting the 0 and the 4 for my second size. I ended up wearing the 0. I found that it was a pretty clingy dress, so I did wear Spanx underneath, not that they were totally necessary. I was a little worried that the V was going to be too revealing, but it was totally fine. I didn't wear a bra underneath and didn't have any problems (34B). Elegant with a side of sexy :) I like the combination of the shear top and knee length. The fabric doesn't ship well and I had to get it pressed before I wore it.

So comfortable and stylish!
The fit of this dress does run large. I typically wear a 10 and the 10 was definitely too big, the 8 I ordered as a backup size fit perfectly. It would be tough to wear a bra with this dress, but my bust is small, so the pasties I wore with it worked fine. I felt like it definitely needed a belt, but you could style this dress in many different ways. It was perfect for the event I attended and would wear it again.

A fun little dress with a touch of sexy.
A fun knit fabric mixed with sheer panels makes this dress sexy and cute at the same time. Not too dressy. I was the first person to wear the dress, it could have done with better pressing than I had time for. (Some of the seams stick up a little.) The fitting guide is correct, choose a size smaller as it runs large. It's a braless number so use a sticky bra if you are bigger busted (you can see the sides of the breasts through the front panel). You may also want to tape down the extra fabric on the inside front panel so it doesn't fall into view.

Great party dress for a summer night
This was such a fun, comfortable, and flattering dress. I felt great in it and would rent it again, that being said, I always wear a 10 in Erin Fetherston dresses, but this one was the exception. It has a lot of stretch so the fit on top was a bit sloppy and I should have gotten the smaller back up size. I agree with another review that the nude lining on the mesh stripes did prove a bit odd in pictures, but a small price to pay for a fun party dress.

Super comfortable and an appropriate length for a wedding!
I usually wear a size 8 in dresses and I was very glad I ordered a size 6 for my second dress! I would definitely recommend sizing down when ordering this dress. I did not like the fact that I had to wear a sticky bra because you can see your bra in the front of the dress. You definitely have to wear a bra because the material is not thick enough to go without a bra.

Love this dress! Comfy, flirty and fun!
The minute I saw the dress I loved it! I was worried about the plunge and it can be revealing in the front but I wore a black strapless bra that has a thick front so it looks like it's a part of the dress. It's slimming at the top and flares out for a comfy fit. The dress is spandex-like so makes it feel bigger than it is. So so cute and feel fab in it!

Just enough class and sass for a Vegas wedding!
I normally wear a 6/8 in a dress but ended up ordering a 4. The 6 fit great but was a little long on me. I went with the 4 which was a little bit more fitted but I liked the length. You can wear a regular bar - which was nice. I wore black and you could not tell at all, the material is quality. Very fun color too! Overall great dress.

I love going to this event and I'm so glad I had something new to wear.
I'm so glad people mentioned that this dress runs large. I ordered a 4 even though I normally wear a 6. I ended up wearing the backup 2 that I ordered. The dress fit beautifully. I do recommend getting breast petals for a smoother fit. I would wear this dress again.

Flattering, unique, and comfy!
This dress ran a bit large but would flatter every shape other than straight, in my opinion. My tummy looks large in this photo but the fit was so much more flattering in person. As others state, you really shouldn't wear a bra. It's a little sexy that way and if you're small chested like me, you'll pull it off. I'm an 8 on top and 12 on bottom and the 8 was great. Big bottom ladies with small waists, this is your dress. Great first experience with RTR staff from start to finish!

I felt frumpy
I ended up having them send me another dress because this one just didn't do much for me. It doesn't define the waist that well and pairing it with a belt didn't help. It ran a little large so the 2 fit rather than the 4.

The dress fit a little large, I'm a zero, so I opted for a different dress. The neckline was beautiful- very low though.

Cute dress! Love the color!
This was the 2nd choice rental for me. I could have ordered a size down but was worried about the fit on top. You can't really wear a strapless bra if you don't want it to show down the center. I did not choose to wear this one to the party. It is very nice, but not as formal as I was hoping. (fyi- the purple is ponte material)

I wore this for a charity event and received a lot of compliments!
This dress was a little bit long and hit me right above the knee. I ended up wearing it with black tights because it was still cold outside and it ended up looking fine. The only downside is the thin material in the chest; you definitely need to wear petals or something stick on underneath! Overall the dress was very flattering and I don't feel like the mesh panels exposed too much.

Wish it were shorter
The color is definitely amazing. It is a thicker fabric. Would DEFINITELY not recommend for a person under 5'8,. I did not end up wearing it because it just looked too big on me and the skirt is wayyyy too long for this style. My best friend who is 5'6 tried it on as well and it just looked sloppy

I was the best dressed at the wedding!
First off, my boyfriend could not keep his eyes or hands off of me. This dress is a stunner! I wore the 10 because it cinched my waist a little more and held up my boobs a little better; it was just an overall better fit and look than the 12. I normally have to size up because of my bra size (36dd/38d), but I recommend going a size down for this dress. You might want pasties if you're going braless. The nude color underlay on the stripes really was not noticeable and didn't make a difference for me. I loved renting this dress and I am looking forward to another event so I can wear it again!

I loved this dress!!!
I am usually a 4 or a 6, and I wore a 2. It's tight but flattering (especially if you usually worry about how your hips/thighs look, because it flares out generously.) The transparent black mesh is very sexy. I want to buy this dress!
