Beautiful cut and color

The dress was perfect for a destination wedding. No bra needed, definitely need someone to help put it on. Straps are adjustable, chest area is tight, bustier women will have an issue with "side boob" under the arm. I loved this dress! Order a size up!

Stunning dress

I wore this for a formal work event. The back was a little exposed, even with my hair covering it, but for a wedding or vacation I think this would be a great choice. Make sure you aren't feeling bloated when you get this dress! Any additional stomach will be visible since the material is very clingy. I really loved it and felt very pretty, just make sure you know what you're getting into!

Pretty dress, tons of compliments

This dress was beautiful and the fabric was much nicer than anticipated. The back of the dress is why I rented it and it didn't disappoint. The part I didn't like was how the cut outs fell when sitting and/or posing for a picture. If I had thought about it earlier I would've put dress tape on the cut outs in the front of the dress. I'm a B cup on a good day and I could imagine the fit would be less comfortable/flattering for a larger chest. Beautiful dress and would def rent a similar style in the future

Most compliments on the color and the style! Very unique and unlike many other wedding guests.

I went for the larger option for the chest, so it may have looked long. I got so many compliments on the color and style since it was so unique. I was able to dress it down with sandals and simple jewelry, but you could really dress this up too.

Gorgeous color for a gorgeous wedding

First off, the color is stunning. It's so different than anything I've worn before, and definitely stood out. I wore this to a late April wedding in Charleston, and it was the perfect dress. It's super easy to dress up or down. I paired it with flat sandals and a chunky necklace, since the wedding was on the more casual side. I ended up renting this dress from the NYC Flagship store the morning of my flight because the dress I originally ordered looked awful on me. Thank goodness they were quick and efficient and helped me look my best literally HOURS before I flew to the wedding. Great experience overall!!

Let down

If you are hourglass or pear size this cute dress is not for you. My hips were way too big for the 6 and the size 8 swallowed me up top. Very sad to send it back.

Lovely color! Fit was less flattering.

Not flattering around the tummy, which I wouldn't particularly say is a problem area for me. I could see the divot from my belly button. This dress is difficult to wear shapewear with, so start doing crunches a month ahead of time if you don't want to be self-conscious :) Also, a bit too long on my legs - fell to mid-calf. Not super flattering on petite people.

Gorgeous color and beautiful back!

Wore this to a wedding and was very happy with my choice! Everyone was asking me where I purchased this dress, so of course I referred them to RTR! The color is so beautiful. The dress was well made and perfect for an evening of dancing!

Stand out dress!

So many compliments on the color, the fit, the style. The perfect blend of sexy and classy. I wore sticky bra inserts and with the strap adjustments everything held together fine. I had a no-show thong but once I had everything on I thought it was still too obvious so I just ditched the underwear. Oh well - overall the perfect dress. Highly recommend!

Weird straps

The color was beautiful, but fit weird. I have an athletic build and it was loose in the waist and hit area but tight on the back, causing unflattering bulge in my back area. I really wanted to love it.

Breezy, Fun Lilac Dress

PROS: Beautiful lilac color! The cutouts are fun and sexy, but still wedding-appropriate. CONS: Not bra- or shapewear-friendly. Material wrinkles very easily. I had to suck in my stomach the whole night -- the material clings to every trouble spot. Overall, the dress is light and lovely. I'd recommend wearing it if you're comfortable with your body, and have a house or hotel room nearby to touch up the wrinkled spots in the dress as they appear throughout the day!

I got so many compliments on this dress. My husband called it "sexy but sophisticated".

This dress fit perfectly. I am a petite woman, curvy but quite toned. This dress definitely showed off my body and hugged my curves beautifully. My warning is that if you have any curves, this dress will show them. My stomach is pretty flat and even I felt like I needed to consciously hold it taught the whole night. Also, even the tiniest crinkle in your underwear will show through. My advice: wear it (I loved it, and felt very sexy) but be prepared to rock it ;)

Compliments all night!

This was actually my back-up choice, and it fit true to size. A button was loose on the back, but it held together without issue for the wedding! I received a TON of compliments on the dress! Such a lovely color. The material is not super stretchy, but there was plenty of room to move on the dance floor!

I didn't end up wearing this :(

I ended up not wearing this dress because it fit me a little strangely. I am small up top with a small waist and big hips/butt/thighs, and most Halston dresses I am a 4 or occasionally a 6, so I ordered both those sizes. Unfortunately in the 4 this one was too small in the hips and the back strap, and the 6 fit mostly well but sagged strangely in the stomach area (I think it was a little too tight still in the butt). I think if I tried an 8 instead and tightened the adjustable straps to make the top tighter, it would have looked good. If you are pear shaped or just have a big booty, definitely size up so the back strap and skirt area fit. The adjustable straps on the top make it much easier to get a good fit there. This dress is otherwise beautiful and interesting, and I will probably try to rent it again to see if the bigger size fits better.

The strappy back is so fun! I felt very sexy and sophisticated in this beautiful dress.

The dress does run small. I usually wear a 4R, but the 6R fit me much better. The fabric is thick enough that you don't have to stress about wearing a bra if you don't want to. It is a tricky dress to get on by yourself. Tightening the straps took some contorting. Overall, it was very comfortable and sexy, while still being wedding appropriate. I loved it!

This dress fit perfectly and was the most comfortable dress I have rented. I didn't even need a bra and it held right in all the right spots. The back is stunning and I got so many compliments on it all night!

The dress fit great after we figured out the strap adjustments. This dress was perfect for my husbands black tie graduation dinner.

Loved the lilac

I've actually worn this dress in black and thought I would try something totally different (for me at least) and wear lilac. I love the way this dress crosses in the back (sorry not shown) and it's a great length. I kept the straps tight to support my bust, and fortunately it didn't feel tight anywhere else.

Beautiful, but was my backup

Got this dress as a backup for a wedding. Ultimately, did go with my first choice and not this dress just because the occasion felt a little more formal/conservative and I wasn't sure the open back would fly. Beautiful color, great fit, would rent again for another occasion. A head turner for sure

Beautiful color, but tight!

I read plenty of reviews that marked this as a possible sausage dress. I am almost always between a 2-4, but I ordered a 4 & 6 in this dress. THANK goodness I did that! The 4 was incredibly tight. The 6 was still a little tight, but I think an 8 would have been too loose. The color is incredible - seriously, compliments all night! - but please size up. I would recommend this dress to anyone!

Perfect Summer Wedding Dress

This dress was gorgeous, and the color/ cut was perfect for a summer wedding. I ended up going up a size because my normal size (4) laid a little strangely. The only con was that it was difficult to button (you definitely need someone else's help).

beautiful dress, lots of compliments

fit very well, I'm only 5'1, small bust, was worried that it would not fit well, but the back for the top is completely adjustable. the dress came a little longer than my knees, about 4 inches below. dress still worked out though. lots of compliment. Make sure to use a backless bra.

Felt amazing!

I loved this dress! The color was amazing on my fair skin. I got so many compliments on the color! I ended up wearing the 14, but the 12 fit great. It was a tighter (but still comfortable) around my butt and I didn't have the right underwear for it and I was flying out early the next day. I got compliments all night! It was so comfortable to dance in! I ended up wearing a backless bra. I would absolutely rent this again!

Pretty color, fabulous back and side cutouts!

This was tricky to put on--I did need some help hooking the back straps together--but once it was on it fit well and looked good. People told me they liked it. It is a lovely soft but pretty color and the back detail is very cool--most definitely the reason why I got it. Just be prepared that the back is a little hard to do on your own!

Lovely color for an outdoor, Summer wedding!

This little gem of a dress was gorgeous in person. The color is a bright lilac and the fabric was light enough to survive the heat of an outdoor, Summer wedding in Tennessee. I paired it with black, strappy heels, a simple bracket and studs. I usually wear a size 2, but ended up wearing the 4R because the middle has zero give and no one wants to create back fat. Also, a NuBra is a must w/ this dress. I received many compliments throughout the evening.

Worn as a guest for a friend's wedding--got many compliments throughout the night.

The 4R fit me perfectly. Note: I wore nothing under this dress, but I think it would work with Spanx and a sticky bra if you felt so inclined. When I tried to wear it with a no-show lace thong, the lines still showed in the skirt. The straps on the top are adjustable, so it seems like it would fit a variety of bust sizes. For reference, I'm 5'8", and approx 140 lbs with a pretty lean, athletic build. I'm usually a 2-4 on top and a 4-6 on the bottom.

Wouldn't Recommend

I've rented this dress in two colors now. The black version is AMAZING and I would rent it again in a heartbeat. It fits true to size and the darker color helps hide any flaw. This lilac version runs extremely small, I couldn't even get the stretchy band to reach around my rib cage. Unless you are flawless with a flat stomach, I wouldn't recommend this dress.

Got loads of compliments on this dress! Great color for the summer!

Wore this to a bar mitzvah. It was a little tight and you have to have another person to help get you in it. There is no way one person can do it! I wasnt in love with the crepe material of the dress, I guess I didnt read the description of the material that well as I was in a rush to get something. Once dressed with hair and makeup done, everything looked great. At the event I got tons of compliments.
