I loved this dress and got many compliments throughout the nice. The ballgown high/low bottom was just enough to add some drama without being too much.

an easy dress to make special with fun shoes and other accessories
I wore this dress to a wedding and it was the perfect blend of being conservative enough for a formal affair, yet fun with sparkly Jimmy Choos and fun big drop earrings.

Beautiful Dress!
This dress was great! In photos it looks a little stiff but it's very soft and flowy. I'm 5'6 140 lbs and a 32DD. The 6R fit well, a little big in the chest which was surprising but still fit well. I wore 3 inch heels and it was the perfect length. I got so many compliments on the dress and it was so elegant and comfortable to wear! Would highly recommend!

IT was just what I was expecting. Looks as good as the pics.
Classic, comfy, the material was a little heavy, but it did not weigh down the dress. It made it look sumptuous. It was everything I hoped. I poured over dozens of dresses before choosing this. RNR makes it so easy. I even let the concierge at the hotel send it back, so I was able to fly back from the wedding a little less weighed down. IT was so easy. I also like that all the packaging is reusable. No waste. The garment bag it comes in is good quality and zips everything into place beautifully. A PLUS operation!

Fit weird
The halter neckline was too long for me and it is not adjustable. While it fit my waist and made it look tiny it also totally smushed my boobs. Also the fabric is VERY heavy. I really wanted this one to work but this dress was not meant for me...

Perfect dress for black tie wedding
Loved this dress! I'm smaller in the chest so this fit perfectly, but if you have a bigger bust, you probably need to order a size up

The dress fit great. I received tons of compliments and felt like a diva!
It was a bit snug in the bust. I NEVER go braless but was actually able to with this dress. It showed cleavage but not in an unclasp or uncomfortable way. While it was tight through the bust the waist was perfect. The heavier material made the dress even better. The length was a tad bit long on me but with heels it was fine. I would definitely wear it again!

Compliments all night!!! Super comfortable
I'm 5'4" ish and appx 150 lbs, rented the size 8 and it fit like a glove! It was absolutely perfect! A word of caution though from my own experience and reading others reviews is bra size. I'm a 34C from VS and I don't think this dress would have fit a larger size up top. Def. base your size choice from your top because below your true waist doesn't matter because of the gowns style. It is a heavy fabric, but super comfortable to wear. No weird adjusting all night! All I had to do all night was stand back and get compliments. I wore this to a black tie gala and it was spot on. Fancy, gorgeous, classy. I even got my picture taken for a local magazine! Not over dressed, not under dressed- perfect. It is a bit long in the back though, and the high low isn't as dramatic in the front as it seems on the model.

beautifully made dress - really stands out from all the other black dresses worn due to the fabric
I wore this at a summer wedding on a hot day and although the material is a little heavier it was perfect, didn't show any heat and I didn't feel hot. Classic, beautiful and very easy to accessorize to create different looks. Received so many compliments; wish I could buy it!

Gorgeous wedding in Washington, D.C. and this dress was a hit!
The dress was true to size. I ended up wearing the 4 because it is fitted in the top but not the bottom. Incredibly flattering and a really fun dress!

Elegant modern black tie gown
Form fitting and flattering dress. The fabric is a thick beautiful jacquard fabric that is great at sucking you in on top and around the middle, but does make for a quite voluminous skirt, be warned. I was able to wear a regular strapless bra with this dress, needed to fill in slightly large cups in the halter. I have a larger rib cage for my size so felt it ran small there but overall was fairly true to size for a formal gown. In bright sunlight this looked more navy than black, which didn't bother me, but may be a deal breaker for some. I felt fresh and fashionable in this dress without having to wear a flirty cutout number. It was the perfect middle ground for a 30-something in the midst of young socialites and older glamorous ladies. Definitely recommend!

Looked and felt great
The 0 size was too tight. I wore the 2R and it was perfect. Very snug, kept everything in. No need for a bra. I am only 5'1 so I worried about the length. The back of the dress touched the ground but only a little. Material was a little heavy so I would not recommend for the hot summer months. Very classy look for a black tie affair. I loved it.

Beautiful shape and elegant fabric
I loved this dress. The fabric is a black lace (hard to tell from the pics) and can feel a bit heavy. But it is gorgeous. Loved the hi-low hem on the dress. The top is like a corset and can feel a bit binding after a long night. Also, the bust was a little tight for me. This dress does not have pockets but looks like it could.

Elegant gown!
I rented this dress for a formal event. This was my very first experience using RTR, and I could not be more pleased! I received lots of compliments on this dress. The fabric was a bit heavy, and the dress does run long in the back, but with heels, it barely skimmed the floor. Loved this dress!

Great dress, so many compliments!
This dress fit incredibly well. It's got a bit of stretch and is a thicker fabric, so no bra needed. It's very flattering trimming in at the waist and with a low, but tasteful v-neckline. It's made of a thicker fabric so would be more appropriate for winter and fall events. I wore it to a black tie wedding and it was perfect. I ordered the 0 and the 2, and can usually wear either size, both fit, but the 2 was a good couple inches longer and with my 4 inch heels that was required for it to touch the floor!

I wore this for a black tie wedding in DC and it definitely hit the mark!
I have a full bust and was worried about the dress dipping too low in the front since I'm fairly modest. The dress did dip pretty low but I just owned it and had a great time! I felt sexy and classy! The length was perfect when worn with 2.5-3 inch heels. Otherwise, it would be very long. The short front and long back were so elegant and I felt like someone should have rolled out a red carpet everywhere I went! If you're a larger busted woman - be prepared to show a little skin! I had to be careful when lifting my arms as the 'ladies' were trying to peek out the sides of the halter. The material almost feels like drapes or curtains - but in a good way! It was very comfortable, albeit a bit warm after some intense dancing.

The fit was great. It is tight around the waist because of the corset lining but it gives you a great shape and is so comfortable to wear. Loved the cut and shape of the dress

I felt absolutely amazing.
I was lucky enough to book an appointment to try on a ton of different dresses at the RTR shop in Washington DC. When I tried this dress on, I was surprised to find that the 0 fit me in the first place. I am normally a 4, so this was a surprise, yet once the dress was on, it fit perfectly. My only complaint was the low v in the front, but I used some fashion tape and fixed that quite easily. I wore this for a winter formal dance and although there was snow outside, I wasn't all that cold because I spent the majority of the night inside dancing. My stylist was absolutely amazing and she helped me find some jewelry that went perfectly with the dress. I wore a statement necklace and a cuff bracelet, both of which I also rented from RTR. I did wear 5" heels along with my dress and the length still worked perfectly. The dress is a high-low, but the high in the front was about tea-length if not a bit longer, so when the shoes came off, I wasn't constantly tripping over the dress. Overall, I had an amazing night wearing this dress and I would love to wear it again. I received so many compliments that night and I don't think I could have felt more glamorous.

The height of elegance!
This gown is elegant and fits very nicely through the torso. I'm a 34B and did not require a bra. I wore a size 2 since the 4 was not available so the length was a tad bit short, but the hi-lo allows you to showcase shoes and gives you lots of flexibility with a heel height. I opted for a 3" heel. The dress is so comfy - we danced all night and I could not have been more comfortable. If it had pockets, I'd buy it!!

Lovely, flowing, chic, comfortable.
I typically wear a 0P, so the 0R was a little loose up top (I'm quite short and flat), but it worked out just fine. I ended up loving this dress so much more than I thought I would. I did not expect to enjoy wearing a ball gown, but the dress was so well-constructed and flowy that I felt very sophisticated for the museum gala I attended. Because I'm 5'1, I worried that the dress would be too long even with the high-low skirt style, but it was great. It dragged in the back only slightly as I wore 5" heels. I would love to wear this dress again and highly recommend it!

Amazing wedding!
This dress was fabulous! Absolutely loved the fit and was perfect for a special occasion. My husband and I were master and mistress of ceremonies for a wedding so I wanted something a bit dressier. Perfect choice! Tight fit through the bodice and plenty of room on the bottom. It is floor length in the back so definitely needed at least a 3 inch heel. Loved my RTR experience and would definitely use again!

Love this dress, almost didn't fit into it.
I really liked this dress. When I got it though, I couldn't get it to zip! My dresses at home are sizes 8-10R so I figured a 10R would be fine, but I didn't realize designer dresses ran smaller than other dresses! I actually had to have RTR send me a different dress, but the night of, with the help of my husband, we were able to get it to zip and it looked great! Got so many compliments. *Note: I had a baby 5 months ago, so my body isn't back to where I was before so I was unsure on sizes because of this.

So comfortable and perfect for a January black tie event
The fabric of this dress is thick, so I wouldn't recommend it for an event during spring or summer. It is a little longer in the front than a typical high/low dress, but I think that is because I'm 5ft 3in. Overall my favorite RTR rental

The dress was perfect in 2R. Most beautiful dress I have ever worn (except my wedding dress).
The dress was true to size. Order for your bra size as opposed to hips since it is fitted at top. I wore this to a Mardi Gras ball, it was extremely comfortable and although fitted, was easy to sit, move around and dance in. I got more compliments from this dress than of anything I have ever worn. If you want something classic that will turn heads, this is it.
