SOOO many compliments when I wore this! And my sister wore it to prom!!!
I would wear this again almost anywhere. It has a conservative neckline but hugs your curves (in a good way!) It does ride up so wear tights if thats not the look your going for.

You must really like me since you got this dress for prom!!! I hope you like the accessories I picked out for you :) I'm sure your photo review will put mine to shame Princess Madison! (This dress was made to be since it has your name in it!)

Beautiful dress!
This dress was very simple, but classically gorgeous nonetheless. It was much more fitted than I expected. It would be perfect for a date night or a night on the town with your girlfriends. I would not suggest renting this dress for a work event or a company party unless you get the next size up for an appropriate work fitting.

Renting this LBD was great!
I wore this dress for NYE. I am usually between a 4 and a 6 and I ended up wearing the 4. They both fit about the same but the 6 was longer and I am short (5'2") so I wanted the shorter one. It does have a conservative neckline, but it is super tight and short (if you want it to be) so that adds something to it.

Love the necklace you paired with this. PERFECT!

Cute cocktail dress
I rented this for a daytime wedding, because I wanted something a little different from the typical LBD. It fit the bill! The lace cutouts give it some sex appeal while making your waist appear smaller. I had to pull down the dress a few times, it tends to ride up a bit, but overall the fit was good and the dress was comfortable.

beautiful dress
wore this to a wedding and i must say it was a choice well made. rented the bracelets also to give the outfit a bit of glitz. dress is body conscious and the lace panels really do enhance/give an illusion of a waist.

I received a lot of compliments on this dress!
I rented this dress in a 2 and a 4 for a January wedding. I did receive several compliments on it. I ended up wearing the 2, but it pulled in the hip area a bit. The 4 had a big fabric wrinkle in the back where I am short waisted. After seeing some professional photos a few weeks ago, I'm wondering if this dress was a tad inappropriate. I could see a whole lot of bright white leg. Maybe it would look better with tights?

Slimming, but tough to size
This is a very cute and VERY slimming dress! I usually wear a 4, and ordered a 4 and 6 at the advice of other reviews - neither really fit. I chose to go with the 4 (which was short and a bit snug) over the 6 which was huge in the hips and chest.

beautiful!
I rented this dress for an evening wedding. It fit like a glove, and my boyfriend said it looked beautiful. I have a 36-38 D bust and it didn't pull at all. I usually wear between a 10 and a 12. I would suggest wearing spanx underneath because it is very fitted. It's also short, but not so short that your butt will fall out. Wear it with really high stiletto pumps, and you'll look fierce.

I think i'm in love
I am in love with this dress, I am so sad to have to send it back. I got a 4 and 6, both fit but the 4 was just the right amount of tight. I did not need to wear a bra at all, and it felt like wearing a comfy cotton dress but I looked dressed to the 9s!

Lots of Leg
This dress was great. The fabric is super comfortable and stretchy, but hugged my body all night (didn't stretch out). I loved that I was covered up top and my legs were the focal point. It's the kind of dress that women compliment and men just love.

Great dress, fits like a glove
This dress was perfect for a formal holiday event I attended. I'm quite short so I didn't expect the dress to either fit or be flattering.. but thankfully I was wrong! The 0 fit beautifully and wasn't too long or too short! This dress was fantastic and I got tons of compliments!

Simple yet elegant dress, easily paired with a bun and red lipstick and you're ready to go!
I rented both the size 2 and the size 4 and ended up wearing the 2 as it just was a better fit for my shoulders but I could of easily worn the 4 as well as it was a tad bit longer and fit relatively the same.

This dress was the perfect combination of modest and sexy - perfect for the unexpected funeral.
Fit was fantastic. I was worried the side panels were transparent, but they are lined. Got a ton of compliments. Props to RTR!

Pretty basic- don't think it is the best look for an hourglass shape.
The detailing was nice, but it didn't seem like a show-stopper. I would save this for a casual event.

This was the one
I rented this and an additional dress. This was the one, it looked amazing and was perfect with the chunky gold necklace and nude pumps I already had. It was comfortable I sized up and would definitely go back down to a 10 if i rent this again.

Cute!
This dress was very comfortable, and ran very true to size. The fabric was a little stretchy, which was nice, and it hugged in flattering places. However, I was not a huge fan of the cap sleeves, although the lace detail was nice. Overall I thought this dress was cute, but very ordinary. I didn't end up wearing it.

It was pretty restrictive.
The dress runs a little small, but mostly true to size. Had there been some stretch to the material, I probably would've worn it; as it was, though, I couldn't lift my arms and it looked unflattering.

I was in between sizes
The 4 was too big in the hips. The 2 fit me, but then the waist sat too high and it was too short. Had it fit it would probably have been very comfortable.

Cute dress, but not the right fit.
I rented this dress for a winter cocktail party, but did not end up wearing it. The event was a work function and thus I wanted to keep my dress on the fun-but-conservative side. I rented a size larger (4) from my normal size (2), as many other reviewers mentioned that the dress ran small and had minimal stretch. Unfortunately, the dress was too big on me. It is, however, a fun and easy-to-wear LBD as long as you can get the sizing right. The length, cut, and lining beneath the lace details make this dress appropriate for a number of different winter events.

Lovely Dress!
The dress fits snug but comfortable. It stretches and you can dance all night long wearing this. I am shorter and the hem was above my knee which was great. The color and design would flatter anybody.

Nice dress, just not for me
I rented this dress in a 10 &12. The 10 fit perfect throughout the whole dress but it was short, and I mean SHORT. I tried on the 12 and the 12 proved to be way too boxy all over. I paired the 10 with opaque tights and even with the tights, it wasn't working. I should mention that I have a "bubble butt" but the difference in the two sizes didn't make for a comfortable or flattering fit. The fabrc of the dress tends to ride up which also didn't help the fit.

I wore this to my boyfriend's fraternity formal.
Dress was a nice fit, and I am very busty. However, it is fell longer on me (closer to the knees) than I would have liked. I am 5'3". However, overall, I received tons of compliments all night and it was very comfortable! I went with the 4 because the 6 was way too big on me! And I usually wear a 6.

Absolutely perfect.
I chose this dress as an option and it was the one I went with! It fit perfectly and was very flattering. This dress received so many compliments and head turns by the end of the night! I was so sad to see it go, but I will definitely rent again!

This dress was remarkably small. I've rented very similar ones that fit entirely differently. I had rented it for a work event but, it was so short and so tight I looked like I was going to the club. Had to pass.

oh my this dress is short!
I rented this dress for a wedding. I am not particularly tall (5'4'') but this dress barely (and I mean BARELY) covered my bum. I had to pick up another dress as a substitute - although I did wear it out the night before the wedding and got lots of compliments (it was in New Orleans so short dress was fine). I do think this dress would be adorable for a winter wedding with black tights. But for this girl - way too short! Also - size up.

This dress would have been perfect if it were longer
The overall fit of this dress was perfect for my body...except the length, it was way too short for a wedding. I would rent it again for a cocktail party, or new years eve. It says in the description to wear a strapless bra but the lace has lining under it so you don't see bra straps at all.

WAY too short!
I wasn't able to wear this dress because of how short it was! I rented for a winter wedding and planned on wearing with tights and booties. I tried both sizes on and they both came right to the bottom of my bum - and I'm only 5'5"! Could definitely be good for a party, but certainly not appropriate for a church wedding.

Cute but way too short
I tried both the 8 and the 10- the 8 fit perfectly but was so, so incredibly short- there was no way I could wear it in public! The 10 was a little too loose, and still way too short. Too bad, it's a pretty dress and feels very well made.

Very comfortable
I had read that this dress ran true to size so to be safe I ordered a 6 and an 8. The 6 fit perfectly, the 8 seemed about the same except it kind of had extra fabric that bunched below the hips (where the bottom tip of the side lace parts are). It was shorter than I expected - I'm 5'2 and it hit the same length as the model in the photo (I guess I thought it would be longer on a short person!) Still, not so short that I felt embarrassed to wear it to a wedding. *added later: After reading some more reviews I thought I should go back and emphasize that yes this was much shorter than I expected. Not scandalous but, short enough that I did tell my boyfriend if I dropped something he would have to pick it up for me because I couldn't possibly bend over to pick it up! I still loved this dress and give it five stars. It was super comfortable, and stretchier than I though it would be, not stiff at all. Didn't have to tug at it or rearrange anything throughout the event, and it was great being able to wear a regular bra.

I ordered it for a wedding but couldn't wear it because it was SOOO short.
I'm 5'7 and 135 lbs, with long legs. The size 8 was SOO short that when I raised my arms ALL of my underwear showed. I definitely could not wear this out of the house. It was a cute dress for someone shorter though

This dress was really comfortable and cute for a date in Las Vegas. I gave it 4 stars because it is really short. I wore tights but was concerned about any bending over whatsoever. Nice fabric and comfy for sure.

This dress was way too short for my taste. It's a mini mini!
