Perfection
Everything about this dress is amazing. Definitely one of my favorite rentals. The cut is so flattering and the color feels really fresh. Comfortable to wear but can't wear a normal bra. I fluctuate between and 0 and 2 depending on brand and the 2 fit perfectly.

Sexy shape, beautiful color, looked and felt expensive
This dress is beautiful and I will definitely rent it again! Make sure you have someone around to help you button the straps in the back. I went braless, but you could wear sticky cups if you wanted some support. I have an hourglass shape and the dress was a little loose around the waste and a little tight around the hips, but I still felt great. I recommend this dress.

Stylist Review
Beautiful color for a special occasion! Running true to size, we recommend sizing up for backup if you’re curvier and down if you’re smaller framed. With a tighter fit in the bust, this piece is best for A-C cup sizes. The unique back works best without a bra. The side cutouts and open design in the back add extra flair to the dress. The adjustable straps and slight high-low design make this a great piece for petites. Generally the piece will hit above the knee, but at 5'1, the dress hits below my knee. This dress is perfect for a party with strappy heels and statement earrings.

Beautiful color, fit & style!
Dress is a knock out, complete head turner! Compliments galore! I wore this dress to a Spring wedding and the color could not be more on point. A beautiful light lavender. The back of the dress is my fav, and the cutouts are sexy yet sophisticated. Love the way the dress swayed while walking or dancing! I wore a adhesive bra, as you cannot wear a regular bra or strapless as the cutouts in the back do not allow. So beautiful! Definitely recommend.

True to size. You cannot wear a bra with this. Sticky boobs outline showed. However the fabric is thick enough that you don't have to have a bra. I loved this dress! Would rent again

This dress was absolutely stunning in person. The color is vibrant and really pops.
I am petite and this dress worked well because I could adjust the straps. I did not need a bra for this dress but the fabric is on the sheer side. This dress was so comfortable and made it easy to dance the night away.

Feminine and sexy!
Beautiful color, interesting back design. Not the easiest to put on without help to button the back, but as long as you have a buddy around you can make it work. I am a 32D and was nervous about not being able to wear a bra, but I found that it pulled me in enough at the top that I didn't even need one. I also rented the black version of this dress at the same time and the strap across the middle of the back was different on each dress. The strap on the black was smooth, whereas the strap across the back on this one is visibly an elastic band (looked a bit like a stretched scrunchie). Other than this detail, I loved the dress and would definitely rent it again!

This dress is beautiful and perfect for dancing!
I rented this dress for a wedding I was attending and I got so many compliments. The color is stunning in person and this dress is perfect for girls on the taller side. My only complaint was that the dress was slightly sheer. I would recommend to anyone renting this dress to pick you under garments out carefully!

I loved everything about this dress!
I am normally a 6 but went with the 8 because the middle strap was really tight on the six and there was no way I could suck in my ribcage...lol! I received a ton of compliments and I loved the color! I am considering buying this dress now that I know how much I love it!

Comfortable summer party dress
This dress was great for an outdoor spring wedding. As soon as I saw this dress I knew I had to rent it! I was a little nervous about the back being too revealing but it didn't look too over the top once I tried it on. This dress fit just right. The top is snug but works if your smaller chested. The color was a gorgeous lilac! I would rent again for another special occasion

RTR Team Review!
Amazing, spring/summertime color! Absolutely love this dress by Halston. Running true to size, I recommend sizing up if you're curvier and down if you're smaller framed. With a slight stretch to the fabric and adjustable straps, this dress is an easy fit up top, but does run tighter so I'd recommend for small cup sizes. The waist is fitted at the natural waist and the hips have plenty of room. I sized down in this and was very happy with the fit of the size 0, but the 2 also would have worked. Looks great with nude heels and hair up to show off the back!

Perfect dress!
This dress was everything and more! The color was perfect for a spring beach wedding that I attended and I got so many compliments from friends and family. The fit is true to size I normally wear a 12 but the 12 was damaged and so I went with the 14 which was not too big but definitely looser than the 12 would have been. The strap in the back is perfectly placed too in case you are like me and have some stubborn little bra rolls lol

Great color, dancing dress!
I rented this for a wedding and loved it. Great color! The fabric is a little sheer and my patties showed through so if you have a bigger chest plan bra accordingly! The a-line style is great for a pear shape/hourglass like me and the flowy design was great for dancing and wasn't too short on my tall frame.

Great color!
This is a great dress for a small chest and a tan! Very classy, sexy. Runs true to size. I am usually a 6 which wasn't available so wore the 8 which was a little big but wearable. Size it for your ribcage/waist. The bottom is flowy enough for any size and the top has adjustable straps, so don't need to worry about those measurements. Received many compliments! Lovely lilac color.

Loved this dress and got so many compliments!! Very flattering and beautiful color.
I wore this to a cocktail rehearsal dinner. It was perfect! Fit true to size, though it was a tad snug at the top because I have a broader back but it wasn't a problem. The color was just like it is in pictures - a gorgeous lavender. I wish I could wear it again!

Stylist Review
Beautiful color! Subtle, but sexy formal dress, with the cut outs on the side being a tasteful touch. Fitting true to size, we would recommend sizing up if you're a bit curvier. The adjustable straps definitely offset the lack of stretch in the bust area. The back is a beautiful design, however this does mean that a bra will not work, so we would recommend a NuBra. Pair with nude heels and a statement necklace for a perfect look.

Perfect for a spring/summer event
Comfortable length and beautiful color for a spring wedding! I wore a size 0 which fit almost perfectly. The top was slightly tight but great for a bra-less night. Grab 2 sizes just in case!

This dress was maybe the best for dancing all night long.
This dress fit great for my small chest/larger lower half, and I was very grateful for the adjustable straps. The color was fantastic for the event I went to and I got lots of compliments on the back. Most importantly, the longer bit in the back added a lot of movement to the dress and was a fantastic addition to my non-stop dancing. If I had the budget, I'd just buy this dress because I felt great in it and it was a lot of fun to wear.

Great spring wedding guest dress for dancing!
This dress was alluring and yet very comfortable for a night of dancing. It accentuates your arms, shoulders, waist and back. You must be comfortable wearing no bra, as the dress gives fine coverage but no support (and with an open back there's no option). I felt special in the unique color and beautiful design. Overall, I was very happy!

Beautiful color!
This dress worked out pretty well. I wore it to a charity event. It was a bit too loose on me overall, I went up one size bc people had said the top was tight (but I'm smaller chested) but it still looked really elegant. The color is beautiful and very true to the pictures online, my pic is kind of dark bc it was at night and dimly lit in the venue. I wore it with a nubra. The back detail was my favorite part of this dress. My bf also approved. Would be great to wear to a wedding.

Obsessed with this color!
I ordered this dress as a backup after my initial order did not work out. I was a little nervous because of how exposed the back is but I loved the color so much I just went for it. And I'm so glad I did! The straps are adjustable and the strap across the back hit at the perfect spot. I started with a sticky bra cups but didn't keep them on for long and it was fine without. The skirt is not too clingy and fun to dance with. There were a few moments where I was suddenly aware of how open my back was but any feelings of insecurity quickly dissolved thanks to all of the compliments this dress received! I wish I owned this dress!

Fabulous dress!
Dress fit great - received a ton of compliments on the style and color! It's nice that you can tighten the straps on the back, as i am smaller on top but wider on the bottom, so the 4 was a better fit for me than the 2.

The back of this dress was amazing!
I loved this dress! My butt is pretty flat so I probably would have worn a 4 but I had only ordered a 6 and 8. Otherwise the dress was perfect! I received so many compliments and felt amazing! The high neckline with the open back feel was the perfect combination!

This dress made me feel so pretty and it was very comfortable. I wore this to my engagement party!
This fits true to size. I am very petite on the top and have a butt, so this was a flattering fit. I could not wear a bra with this but that was not a problem for me. The color was divine - a vibrant lilac and it was a huge hit at the party. It has small cutouts on the front waist-line and a very open back with a unique back detail - that I loved. The bottom as fitted at the hip and loose but tailored to the knee.

Fun and sexy back
This dress fit my body great. The adjustable straps helped to make the top fit beautifully and the hip/thigh was super flattering. The material is VERY thin and I had a hard time figuring out what to wear under the dress because the material showed my belly button. I ended up wearing thin bike short spanx which helped to smooth everything out. You can't wear anything too high waisted because of the open back. You also cannot wear a bra without the material showing through. It wasn't a problem for me. Last tip-- there is one small button that holds the whole top off. Make sure to pack a sewing kit in your clutch in case the button falls off!

Sexy back & lovely color!
The color, style, and fit of this dress is fabulous. One of my favorite rentals to date! I was a little hesitant, because you can't wear Spanx with this dress, and my tummy is my problem area, but it is relatively flattering! I loved the color and back of this dress the most! I typically wear an 8 or 10, and I was very happy with how the 10 fit!

Surpassed my expectations!
I haven't won Halston Heritage before so I was nervous about the sizing. I usually wear a 4 but in high-end brands I might go a size up or even more. The size 4 fit me like a glove. I had a TON of compliments. This is the best dress I have worn in years. Unfortunately, the dress is riding up a little in the middle in the picture so you can't see the cut-outs. I am a little pudgy in the mid-section and this dress was fairly flattering for me (usually I struggle in dresses) although I wish I wore Spanx. I wore an adhesive bra and that was sufficient (I'm a small C-cup). Would totally rent again in a year or so! I will say I would look for other reviews if you are a curvier girl in the butt, hip or chest area. I'm not curvy and I'm not sure if it is curve friendly (It totally could be...I just don't know!)

I loved this dress and the way it fit, I felt sexy yet classy. Definitely recommend!
The fit was looser on the bottom and tighter on top so take that into consideration when choosing size. I felt a little exposed during the ceremony at a church so I'd also recommend taking something to cover your back.

Classy with a "WOW"-factor
The picture is bad, and doesn't do the dress justice. It was stunning. I got compliments from complete strangers. I ordered the 2 and 0 as a back up, but ended up wearing the 0 because I am petite up top. I loved it. I accessorized with nude and gold, which looked perfect!

Perfect Fit
This dress was perfect for the wedding I attended. I received TONS of compliments all night and made a great impression on my boyfriends family. The dress is elegant but still sexy at the same time. I'm quite petite so I was worried about the length but it hit perfectly at my knees with plenty of room between the floor and the longest part of the dress. The size 0 fit like a glove so I didn't even bother trying on the size 2. I brought a slip with me to the wedding bc of the reviews I had read about it being see through but didn't wear it. The material is very nice and lined. Not see through at all. I would definitely rent this dress again! It was stunning on me.

I felt beautiful and sexy in this dress! Lots of compliments all night!
This dress fit like a glove in the size I thought I needed (no backup size was needed). I did feel more secure wearing a NuBra, but I would imagine someone with a smaller chest could go braless. The dress was longer on me than expected (I'm tall!), but I was pleased since I'm used to things being too short, and the length helped balance the open back and sides. I loved this dress!

Gorgeous dress!
Got so many compliments on this dress! The color was a little less vibrant than I hoped for but it still worked, especially with a big gold statement necklace. I normally wore an 8 or 10 but sized up to a 10 and 12 and ended up wearing the 12 to have a bit more room in the chest. Having the straps adjustable helped a lot. This was super flattering to my 8 months post-baby body! I wished I didn't have to send it back.

Seriously, this dress though... swoon <3 <3 <3
So I normally wear a size 8-10 as I'm 6'0 tall, swimmers back and larger chest, small short waist, narrow hips but some glute muscle. I noted it ran small, but only in the top based on my build, it may be true to size for others. Based on reviews (very helpful) I got the 10R and the 12R as a back up. The 10R fit perfect in the waist and hips but the top just wasn't quite right with my wide shoulders/back (acceptable but I feel like I'd be a bit too distracted with the ladies going rogue throughout the night) so I opted for a better fitting dress around my chest that was just a tad looser in the waist and hips. The looser fit is unnoticeable. For larger chested gals you def need an adhesive bra and a hipster thong is also recommended. The adjustable straps are super handy. This dress is STUNNING, and I felt beautiful. So classy in the front then jaw dropping in the back. Great length especially for us tall girls. Easy to dance and move in and nice airy material for a summer wedding. Wore it with a simple wrap only for the church ceremony. I honestly can't say enough good things about it, I'm bummed I had to return it. TONS of complements.
