I felt so good in this dress! I was receiving compliments all night.
I could've gone down a size and worn the 2 but it was a little too snug in the chest for me. everything was a pro! The sleeves were short, but short enough to look like they were meant to be that way. You only need earrings with this dress, so accessories were easy! I wore it to a fraternity formal and it was PERFECT.

This dress stops traffic!
I rented this dress for a night of dinner and dancing on valentines day. Be ready for all eyes to be on you, as this dress shows a lot of cleavage. Looks very glamorous. Just to be safe, you may wish to stock up on double sided tape. Other ratings suggested putting the dress on before you finish your hair and makeup; this was a life saver! The dress is a little snug to put on, so I could understand how it could mess up your hair. Great dress, wish I could have kept it!!

Having the 2 different size options was a life saver!
The sleeves were kind of tight but once I got it on it was fine! Every part of the dress fit true to size except the waist! I would have worn the 2 if the waist wasn't so awkwardly large. Other than that I absolutely loved the dress and got SO many complements! My date loved it too ;) I would definitely suggest this dress!

Honestly the best fitting dress I've ever worn. Very form flattering. Instant confidence booster.

This was my back up dress for a party
Although I loved the style - the fabric was such that if it was too big in areas it would bunch up - should have gone with a size smaller - I'll probably rent again and wear it at a smaller size

Such a chic LBD!
This dress was fantastic! I felt so chic in it! My arms and shoulders more muscular than average so as a previous reviewer stated, the arms were a bit snug and it was a bit of a mission to get it over my shoulders, but once I was in, it wasn't overly constricting. It was perfect for looking sexy on a chilly evening.

Too big
This dress had potential, but a couple of things did not work for my body type. I rented a size 2 but it was big all over, and rather than hugging my bust area, that was also loose fitting. The material is beautiful, and thick so probably best worn on cooler nights.

Runs large
Unfortunately the dress was too large to wear either size. It was also very long. The upper area is very sexy but that's the only redeeming quality or this dress. The fabric is thick and it is slimming but I would recommend people to order a size down as their backup!

Didn't fit right :(
I ordered this dress for a party/charity event and have had it in my favorites for a while.. I was disappointed when i got it though. I ordered a 2 and a 4.. the 2 fit everywhere (my chest, butt, etc).. except the midsection of the dress was huge! I should have taken a photo to show it.. but it looked silly. The seams on the side didn't sit right either.. it was like there was just too much material in the middle in general. If you are trying to hide a belly.. it would maybe be perfect.. but it was definitely not good for me! Thank goodness I had a back-up! :)

I wish the larger size was available!
I rented this for a party but was unable to wear it because it was wayy too tight around my arms. The sleeves weren't very stretchy. I probably would have been able to wear the size 8 but unfortunately it was not available. It is a very thick dress and looks slightly more conservative than the picture. If your going to order and have muscular or larger arms then you should definitely order a size up.

Needed a dress that would be warm for a chilly night out in Las Vegas
The size 2 probably would have been okay, except for the bust area. Even in the size 4, I felt like I was pushing the limits and I felt a little self conscious. But, I think a size 6 would have been too big and would have probably gapped through the bust...because of the fit, it's critical that this fits snugly through the bust!

Dress is very well made and looks very expensive
I was unable to wear it with having a bigger bust. I was unable to button the top and the rest ran small even with the give in the fabric, I would size up for sure.

If you are busty this dress is not for you. It gave no coverage and looked ridiculous. I could not wear it.

Great fit- classy but sexy!
This was my favorite RTR dress ever! So flattering. The arms were a little tight, which is why I went with the 4. I got tons of compliments!

Felt Like Britney
I rented this dress for a Britney Spears spoof of her video Scream and Shout. Besides being perfect for this purpose, it was a great dress otherwise. Extremely flattering cinched waist and a cleave-tastic cutout. The button detail at the neck was interesting and fun. Long sleeves were a little tight so I would say steer clear if you need free movement. Otherwise, wear it with pride and await the compliments.
JillMarch 17, 2013
You look amazing really you look like a 10!!! Plus I am thinking about wearing this dress for my anniversary, I am about your size I am 5'1 a size 2 and a 32DD. For a fancy anniversary party does it show a little too much boobage especially on us larger busted gals, and second it is obvi very form fitting, is VPL an issue at all? Would a thong work or is it best to go without undies? Thanks so much you look amazing!!!
SaucySarahMarch 17, 2013
I knew who you were before I read your review and I'm so in love!!! I'm going to Vegas for my 25th and going to see Britney and I think I'm going to steal a page from your book! Gonna have to figure out how you did your hair though!!!! <3 <3 <3

This dress was way too small in the hips/butt.
Fit like a glove except for the skirt, which bunched up all weird. I am a 33/24/32 and dress just didn't not go over my butt right.

Lots of compliments on this sexy LBD!
The dress is very tight and stretchy. I sized up to the 8 because there was not enough room in the bust area. I am bigger on top and the cut out draws a lot of attention to that area, still the long sleeves and length make it more conservative. Overall, I received many compliments on this versatile LBD.
NadiaDecember 5, 2012
Hi Erika! This question is sort of unrelated but I was wondering what bra you're wearing under the dress? I'm a 32dd and I've never quite been able to find a bra that dips down as low while giving me a nice shape´and it'd be great to know what brand/style you're wearing. You look great in the dress!
ErikaDecember 5, 2012
Thanks Nadia!! I actually have implants and chose not to wear a bra with this dress. I had one on at first and it definitely showed. Sorry I can't help you with this!

Sexy!
I rented this dress for a work party, but did not end up wearing it because I'm busty (34D), and it just seemed a little too voluptuous for my taste! However, it did make the girls look GREAT, it I would definitely wear it for a night out on the town or a date night! The fabric is thick and the dress fits every curve perfectly. The zipper did stick out a little bit, but I'm sure could be fixed with double sided tape. Overall, a well made gorgeous dress!

Didn't wear it. Had to return it the same day I received it because it was too low cut.
It fits very well but it was too low cut for my taste. Too revealing! It runs true to size. I'm sure it will look better on someone who has smaller breast.

Great sophisticated dress!
After trying on the dress for the first time I was a little disappointed that it covered me up more than I wanted.... I'm pretty petite so the length hit me just a couple inches above the knee, and the bust-cut out wasn't too revealing either... Overall there was still quite a bit of sexiness to the dress, but it was definitely not over the top sexy and more on the elegant and sophisticated side. This is actually a dress I wouldn't mind owning as it fit well, I felt very comfortable in it, and it even got a thumbs up from the boyfriend! It runs mostly true to size, a little snug maybe, but not enough to where I had to go up a size. I asked for both a 0 and a 2 just in case. While the 0 was a little snug getting on, the size 2 just had way too much excess fabric from the waist down and caused some unflattering bunching that my petite frame just couldn't fill out... so overall the size 0 just fit me better. I was able to wear a bra with the dress, but you could easily wear it without one, I just wanted the extra 'oomph' for the ladies, and the dress does show them off nicely!

Can't say enough good things about this dress!
I had rented 2 dresses before this one and none of them worked, so I guess what they say is true..third times the charm! This dress is extremely flattering and was very comfortable. It hugged in all the right places. I received endless compliments and even got a few offers from friends that they would pitch in and by the dress for me! I highly recommend renting this dress for a birthday or girls night out!

Fit Great!
This was the backup dress I rented. Would have worn it but i fell in love with the other dress. I will definitely be renting this again! It fit great, a little more revealing than i"m used to, but the sleeves and length balance it out. The fabric is a little heavy so I'll save the rental for colder months.

Classy dress. Got so many compliments!
The dress fit very well. I wore it for NYE and got lots of compliments. The dress fits great in the bust area, making the girls look amazing. The dress is made out of a heavier fabric, so you can tell it's great quality. The only downside of this dress is that if you are a dance machine, prepare to sweat a little due to the thickness of the fabric. Overall, I'd recommend it.

Great colder weather party dress
I rented this dress for a girlfriends bachelorette party. It was a 'Pop Diva' theme and I had a blue wig that could go Katy Perry or Lady Gaga so I wanted a fun, pop star kind of dress. I found this and it turned out perfectly. The dress was very comfortable when I got it on and you can't help but show of your chest in a classy way in this number. The only reason this didn't get a 5 is becuase of 2 things. 1) Clubs get hot, especially when dancing and I got pretty hot in this dress. The sleeves are very tight so you won't get good ventilaition. Don't wear in warmer months! 2) It was very tricky to get on. The zipper is a little tough getting over the satin part of the dress and the top is sooo tight that you really have to work yourself in. Once its on it feel fabulous but I'd advise putting deodorant on after or else you'll get it all over the dress.

Very cute, but tight in the arms.
This was so cute, but I couldn't wear it because the arms are very tight and the fabric is thick with little stretch. Also, I was sweltering just wearing it for a few minutes while I tried it on. I went up a size in anticipation of the arm issue, and the rest fit great, but be aware that you may be a little constricted!

I'm obsessed with this dress.
It fits incredibly well, but like everyone else has said, it's not a great dress for warm weather. I'm 5'0 and the dress hit me right above the knee, making it a little more formal a dress than I wanted, especially with the long sleeves. But it's gorgeous.

Placement of Side Zipper did not work for me
Overall, the dress was beautiful. It was a heavier weight stretchy material that hugged the curves. AND it made my bust look amazing. Since I do not have the perfect hips for this dress, the zipper bunched on the side which created a lumpy hip area. I wanted this to work, but it just didn't. Luckily, RTR was able to ship me a back up dress in time for the event.

Va va voom!
This dress fit like a dream. I ordered it in a size 10 and it was perfect. I felt completely comfortable all night long. It's true this dress isn't for the "faint hearted" but I promise you if you rent it, you will feel like a star out for the evening. This dress actually was a last minute back up dress and was I glad about that. Once again RTR did a great job making sure that everything worked out well.

Attention grabbing but classy.
Such a fun dress! I don't show my cleavage often at all but decided to go for it for a night in AC. You have to be prepared to be on display because you just are with this dress. It's like a picture frame of your cleavage. The fit is great. Tight but not a suction. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is bc a) you need another person to get the side zip up bc it has trouble going over the satin material and b) it does ride up a bit. All in - so glad I rented it. Highly recommend!

Great dress!
I ended up going w/ my backup dress for my concert but this one was great too! Its thick and would keep you warm! It ran a little bit longer on me though - not enough leg for Vegas :) at least for me!
