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.

Awkward Fit
Couple things to note if you are renting this dress! It is far bluer in person and not purple as the picture shows. This dress is fairly fitted until the first black stripe. I didn't love the way it hugged in this section. If you're going to be in a lot of photos...when it's dark and a flash is used, the stripes don't appear black...instead kind of awkward nude mesh cutouts. Not my favorite rental, but someone with a different body type might have better luck with this one!

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.

Flirty and Unique
This dress is a great for small chested girls who are able to go braless. It's sexy without being too revealing. The color is an awesome shade of blue. I wish I had more events to wear a dress like this to attend! :-)

Cute, saucy, and fun!
I rented both the two and the four, but ended up wearing the four so I could have a little extra room on the top. The two and four are pretty much indistinguishable in size in the waist. The sheer top is nice, but a little revealing down the front, but in a saucy way. However, bustier girls (I'm a DDD), you're going to be on display! I wore a regular bra with it because my hair is long, and it covered the straps. But if you go strapless with this dress, it will have to accommodate the deeper neckline plunge. This dress was a 100% win for my birthday party. I received so may compliments on it all night!

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.

Very comfortable and cute dress. Trendy but doesn't look like it's trying too hard.
Good fit for a pear shape. The fabric is like a heavy knit, so it's very comfortable.

All my coworkers complimenting my dress!
I wore this dress for a fundraiser dinner at the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg. I liked that it was a bit edgy because Dali was sort of weird. The 4 fit perfectly. I am giving it 4 stars because the way the stripes hit across my mid-section made me look a little fat and the dress was a bit wrinkly when I received it. I didn't have the right underwear for it so I went braless which wasn't too big of a deal. I didn't have breast petals but I would have felt a lot more comfortable if I had had those on. Even though I wasn't crazy about the dress, I received SO many compliments. Seriously, all my coworkers loved it. It was a nice dress overall and got the job done. Wouldn't rent it again though.

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!

Super flattering and comfortable!
I rented this dress for my mom's 50th surprise birthday party and was really happy with it! The drop waist wasn't my favorite feature (not really into that trend) but everyone said it looked great on me. The color is way prettier in person and the fabric is unbelievably comfortable. Also, the top part in black is very sheer! I wore a strapless bra with a clear middle piece, but sticky cups might be needed for this one. I loved how it was still a little sexy but still appropriate enough to be around family and friends.

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.

Last-minute backup dress ended up not being a disaster at all :)
My original dress didn't fit and RTR was super helpful with getting a new dress out to me overnight just in time for my event. I probably wouldn't have chosen this for myself if I hadn't been crunched for time with limited options, but it was a nice dress, good quality material. Good luck wearing a bra under this. The mesh paneling reveals everything and the V neckline goes so low even strapless bras are obvious. The fabric is thick and tight enough that you don't jiggle much, so those stick on "breast petals" are all you need for this. If you have a pudgy stomach - SKIP THIS DRESS. The top stripe rode just under my stomach and made it look even more pronounced than it actually is. I didn't find it to be very flattering overall, just in the way it was cut. Lack of bra meant my chest wasn't supported well, and the seams and stripes around the midsection reveal all pudge. I ended up wearing this with a black blazer which looked great with the dress and hid most of the issues, plus gave it a more modest look since this was a family wedding. Overall it's a pretty good dress. :)

I rented this size in 2 and 4 and both dresses fit great. The shape and materiel of the dress if very forgiving. I received many compliments! I would definitively recommend this dress for any body type. I was able to wear a low cut strapless bra and had no issues. Great RTR experience!

Beautiful color. Fun & flirty!
It fit well. The larger size bunched up in the chest area so I went with my smaller pick. It doesn't have any support in the breast area and you can't wear a bra. I am pretty small, but I was worried I might show too much through the fabric. It turned out to be fine. A lot of compliments on this cute dress! It's VERY comfortable. I wore it to The Teen Choice Awards 2014.

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!

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.

Everyone remarked on how vibrant the color was on this dress!
This dress was perfect for the evening wedding I attended in St. Louis on a steamy day. I have a pretty full bust, but wore a strapless bra underneath. It was daring enough to have peekaboo cleavage but still appropriate with the sheer paneling. I took a make up checking selfie, so hopefully you can get an idea of the paneling. This was my first Rent The Runway experience, and I was very pleased.

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.

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 didn't end up wearing
Loved the style & color of this dress! I read the reviews which said the dress ran a little big so I was happy with the fit of the 2! I didn't end up wearing the dress because it just didn't look right on me. The black stripes starting below the hip made me look more frumpy than elongated like I hoped! If I didn't have a backup dress I probably would have worn!

Fun comfortable dress!
Loved this dress! I got the 10 and the 8....10 was way too big in the chest for me....I think I could have worn a 6 which would have given me more support since I went braless but I was afraid it would be too tight in the hips.....I am pretty long waisted so the top stripe didn't hit me as low as others have stated and I didn't have any problems with the look of the dress....I am 5'8 so the dress was as short as pictured but was also not a problem. If you are shorter and or short waisted it may not look like it does on the model. I feel it runs true to size but my be big up top if you are smaller chested. I added a fashion belt to accent my waist. Super comfortable and very unique! Loved the color too!

Better than winning the award
Wore this to a theater awards ceremony! It was super comfortable and the sheer paneling in the front added a level of interest without being tacky. I felt sexy and classy and was excited to wear something a little outside of my comfort zone!

The backup that became the front-runner
I chose this dress as a backup dress for a wedding. The fit was nice- but it's a little casual... I'd recommend for a night out or pseudo-casual evening drinks or something. The fabric is cottony- It's flattering and had a nice fit though...

Gorgeous blue dress! I got tons of compliments:).
Love this dress! It was so comfortable, and fit perfectly! I wore it to my husbands BU graduation. It was a bit more revealing than I had planned on, but not too revealing that I would have to wear something else.... Just not a dress I would normally choose to spend a night next to my mother in law in ! Love it! Would wear it again! More of a date night than formal affair dress!

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!

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.

Comfortable dress that didn't meet my high expectations
I liked this dress, and my husband was quite complimentary. However, the fabric was not as structured as I expected, and it did not hide my hips as much as I was hoping. The top was very fun. However, again, the lack of structure in the dress proved problematic as the dress should really be worn without a bra, but there was absolutely no support or padding in the dress. I wore a normal, dark colored bra, which you could see if you looked closely. I can see why many would love this dress, but it wasn't a home run for me. The occasion I rented the dress for was canceled, so I ended up just wearing it to a nice dinner. It was very comfortable and I did feel special wearing it.

I wore this for my sister-in law's rehearsal dinner- very comfortable and easy to wear
fit was perfect- i'm an hourglass, so i have broader shoulders, wide hips, and a smaller waist. This dress showed off my figure without showing too much! It was perfect for the dinner.

Loved this dress, fit great!
The mesh in the bust added to the sex appeal while still being classy. The dress was not clingy at all (I do not like anything tight on my stomach-trouble area). The material has some stretch and is very comfortable. The skirt length is modest and was great for all the sitting that goes on at a wedding. This was my first successful RTD dress, I have a very hard time finding dresses to fit my bust while not exposing everything, while also fitting my other curves, so having this dress was great! This will definitely be on the list to rent again.
