I liked the style but the fit was wrong for me.

Overall fit: True to Size

Top was huuuuugggeee. Had to pin and was uncomfortable. Better for a full bust.

Perfect for casual/dressy "white" party.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
The fit was small all around. I ordered a 2 and 4 but wish I had gotten a 6. I wore the 4. The top was tight and I was constantly pulling the bottom down. That aside... it disguised and flattered my midsection and I got tons of compliments on the dress.

Comfortable and classic silhouette

I rented this for my date's company holiday party. I struggled a bit with the zipper; this is one of those dresses that's difficult to zip where the fabric splits. But once it was on, it was beautiful. It definitely has a Greek goddess-like quality to it, and was sexy without being scandalous. The material was also very comfortable, breathable and forgiving.

I wore this for my bachelorette party in New Orleans. Fun, flattering, sexy!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I loved this dress. It was perfect to the occasion! A fun style, and made me feel sexy! Let me just tell you right now though.... this thing is FITTING! I ordered the 2 and the 4, and I was a little self-conscious about how snug the 4 was. I would order the size you normally wear, and a size up just in case. I also had to wear nude color shapers, the kind that have a little slip over the shorts, which I purchased at Target. You have to wear something underneath because the material on the bottom of the dress is see-through. It sounds like a hassle, but I felt like it was worth it, because I loved the way I looked and felt in this dress! An RTR success story!

I'm kind of top heavy, but I didn't have any problems. The material has stretch to it, so it will fit, but I recommend some sort of smoothing garment underneath.

This dress was even more fabulous in person than in the pictures. It is a tad sheer, but I wore tan spanx and you cannot even tell that might be an issue. I was also afraid the dress was going to be too summery but it is a good winter white. All in all it was a great rental!

Greek Goddess!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I ordered this dress as a back up, and I am so glad I did! My original dress did not look good on me at all. I had ordered this in a size 4 and 6 (from the other reviews saying to size up) and I could not zip up the 4. I got so many complements that night. I also rented the Kate Spade purse that looks like a ship to go with the theme of the party (little brother rented a small yacht for this 30th). The bottom part if the dress is VERY SHEER. I had to go out and buy a skirt slip to wear underneath. I got a slip that was 14", but I think you could go longer up to 18". Other than that it was an amazing dress!

It was a "wow" dress that made a statement

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I thought it fit true to size and worked very well with a strapless bra and spanx. I might have gotten away without wearing spanx under it (I saw other reviewers complain about the skirt being too shear), but liked the smoothing effects of the spanx. I got a lot of compliments at the "White Party" I attended and was very happy with my choice of this dress.

Amazing dress, so comfortable and easy elegance

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was beautiful! I'm curvy on the bottom and small on top, so the bottom looked a little off at first (the material wasn't very forgiving), but spanx made all those issues go away. My date LOVED how this dress looked, and the whole outfit was really easy to style!

The dress was subtly sexy and I felt amazing wearing it.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress was very forgiving around my DD breast. The material is a bit thin in the lower part of the dress leaving you feeling a little exposed if light shines on you. Otherwise, the dress was great. Showing off a little skin without being to revealing. I felt sexy and chic.

Disappointed.

I didn't wear this dress, mostly because it was tight and the material on the bottom half of the dress is almost see through compared to the top of the dress. I was disappointed.

It's just not right...

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress as a replacement dress for my rehearsal dinner. The dress fits true to size but it's bottom half is very sheer. It reminded me of a dance recital costume. The top half has more fabric so it's not sheer, but the draping is very odd. I would think it would fit better on a very tall, very slim person. Because of the sheerness, spanx are a must.

I rented this dress for my rehearsal dinner. Bad idea.... I read some other reviews that said the bottom was see-through but read others that said they loved it. I gave it a whirl and tried it on and sure enough... I couldn't even wear it which is why there is no photo.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small

Like the other reviewers mentioned, you will definitely need to wear a slip at least for the bottom half because it only has lining for the top. It also runs small, so make sure to size up. I'm typically a 0 and the 2 was snug.

I wore this for my sorority's "Nautical Day", and it fit great! It flatters a body that is more bottom-heavy. But make sure to wear something nude underneath, or even a slip!! It is super see-through.

I originally rented this for myself, but my best friend ended up wearing it.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small

This dress is not made for women who are curvy on the bottom, but is well suited for top-heavy ones. My best friend is tiny, but has wears a 36DD. While I could not zip this dress over my big butt, nor could I fill out the top...it looked great on her! It definitely runs small though, so rent a size up.

I only ordered the size 0 which was far too small and the bottom was so sheer that I wouldn't have been able to wear it without a slip anyway. Since then I have tried on this brand and realized that you should go up two sizes because it runs really small.

I rented a size 6 and a size 8 - both sizes ran too small for me. Luckily I had brought a backup with me in case they didn't work out. The dresses were very pretty, and I wish I had been able to wear them.

Cute dress on the hanger, on my size 4, 120lb. 5'8' frame it fit like a tube top. The ruching that is supposed to fit at the waist was across my breasts. I'm hoping that the dress I was sent had shrung, or else the dress is mean to fit petites only.

I ended up not being able to wear this dress. the skirt part is not lined and thus rather see through - it was summer so I was not going to wear tights and I did not have a short enough slip. too bad. it would have been cute, and definately comfortable.

Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Wore this to a work party where we all wore white. It really stood out, got tons of compliments. It's very comfortable. It runs small, so the 8 fit perfectly. The material is thin, but not cheap looking. Wear a slip. Girls don't think of that enough, foundation! The 6 was much shorter than the 8, as well, and whiter. The 8 was more of a cream, just an interesting side note. Wore it with silver heels, lots of silver bangles & earrings, no necklace & a silver arm band.

Super Sexy but too short

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small

Beautiful dress but I chose not to wear it because it was a mini on me. I'm curvy, 5' 7 1/2 and I'm built for form-fitted dresses. I'm in the night club business but the dress was too short for me. I'm 48 & don't always want to dress like my very younger patrons. It did not fit as the picture shows might be more suitable for shorter women or if you want to flaunt your thighs.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
The fit is a little on the small side. I normally wear a 4 but the 6 fit well. I read the other reviews about the size and material, but decided to give this a try anyway. The bottom is very clingy and see-through. Perhaps with the right nude slip it could work, but I didn't have one that was the correct length and cut. Sadly, I could not wear it.

I got this dress to complete a cleopatra halloween outfit for a black tie optional party. I give it two stars only because it was acceptable enough to wear out. As the previous reviews will tell you, this dress feels cheap because it's made of polyester, is extremely clingy and slinky feeling, and is totally see through waist down. I am an apple shape and skirt was not forgiving at all. I ordered up and it was still clingy. I wore spanx, and you could see the midline seam going up the spanx... that's how unforgiving this dress was. Despite all of that, it looked OK on, and did complete my costume, but I definitely don't recommend it.

I wore this dress for my bachelorette party this weekend. I felt wonderful in the dress, but it is very sheer at the bottom. I bought a pair of cheap, nude pantyhose and then cut the legs off so that everything was smooth. I didn't want to wear spanks because they can be uncomfortable and may have shown. I recommend this dress. It is a great fit. My fiance wants me to buy it! He thought it was very sexy.

I ordered this dress as a backup for my bachelorette party, but it ended up being my first pick! The dress is very sheer as the other reviewer mentioned, but I was able to pull off spanx and you couldn't tell (I have the high-wasted ones that go almost to your boobs, so there was no line at the waist). I wore it out to LIV in South Beach and got a ton of compliments. The bottom is very skin tight though, so it makes up for the modest neckline. I took off points for how sheer it was, but other than that, loved the dress! Fits very true to size
