Didn't end up wearing but it fit well
I didn't end up wearing this because it wasn't as much of a show stopper as I had hoped. It also is a light grey color rather than ivory. I had planned to wear heels that were black and ivory but they did not match as I'd hoped. The back of the dress is very pretty and the dress fit very true to size (the 6 fit perfectly and is my usual size).

Engagement photos
We were doing a black and white theme for our engagement photos. And this dress was perfect. Love the surprise back. I wore a black gem beaded necklace to dress up the front. But great dress. Not too short and comfortable. It's true to size.

This dress is fabulous!!
I wore this dress for my rehearsal dinner and just loved it. It's definitely more grey than white but fits great and the back is stunning. I wore a regular black bra too and you couldn't even see it. Would definitely rent again.

Did not wear this dress
Never ended up wearing this dress. I ordered a 0 and a 2. The 0 looked like a bag on me. I am short but the dress was past my knees. I got my mom to try on the dress (who is a size 4) and it was even slightly big for her. Also had trouble returning it since my function was on a Sunday and Monday was Presidents' Day.

Potato sack on curvy girl
I think if you are slim and more straight bodied this could work for you. My issue was that I had to go up in size for it to even fit over my hips and then it didn't hang right. It wasn't flattering on me.

Bringing sexy back!
The back of the dress is gorgeous but it does run a bit big in the torso area. The dress fit in the chest and hips but made me look a bit boxy since you couldn't really find my waist. If your an hourglass shape, this one might be tough to pull off. RTR was out of size 4, so I'm not sure how sizing down would have compared.

Classy dress but odd fit
Beautiful and classy dress. The back is fabulous, but the fit is strange. Very big on top and much tighter on the bottom. 6 fit better on the bottom but top was huge. Still glad I wore it, I felt great in it!

Months later and I still get compliments!
At the last minute, my usual size 12 was unavailable. RTR did what they could to get me another dress but I ended up going for a smaller size instead because I love the back of this dress. I'm glad I did because I felt fabulous. Although there isn't much stretch in the material the shape of the dress if forgiving which is why I was able to use the smaller size.

The back is amazing, lovely drape
I wore this with a black bra, not noticeable through the black lace in back IMO. A little big but still got a million compliments. I loved the dress. I paired with drop earrings, black blazer and sparkle shoes. The dress is absolutely pale gray, not cream as it appears in photos on RTR.

I was so excited about this dress because it's more unique than what I typically wear. The fit was boxy and unflattering, I didn't wear it.

Effortless & Feminine!
Feminine, sexy dress that is also very comfortable! The material is relatively thick, so even though it is white, I felt perfectly comfortable going bra-less to highlight the lace piece in the back.

Dress did not work out at all. Way too large.
I rented this dress for my Welcome Cocktail Reception the day before my wedding. I normally wear a 6 and rented both a size 6 and a size 8. Both dresses were way too large, ill fitting and the dress was much longer than it looks in the pictures. The fabric was a nice quality and the RTR team was very responsive regarding my rental, however I ended up just taking the credit to my account and finding a dress locally the day of the event.

It started rough with this dress but I ended up loving it!
I rented a 2 and a 4, there weren't many reviews when I was renting it so I just went with my typical sizes because I love the photos. I rented this for a grad school gala, formal attire with a midsummer nights dream theme. I didn't want to go long and I wanted something a little more edgy and cool so this was perfect. When I tried the 2 and 4 on I was so upset because it's not as fitted and short as it was on the model, it looked matronly and baggy on me (esp the 4 - it was huge)! Given that I had a day to turn this around I decided I had to just "Make it Work" a la Tim Gunn - I fake-hemmed the dress to the length on the model and accessorized! A sparkly necklace, earcuff, statement shoes and red lip are what helped bring this dress from a "meh" to a "Wow". I don't recommend the dress to anyone who wants to throw a dress on and go, this is one that requires some thought to create a look around. Ultimately, I was happy with it - It was a comfortable, t-shirt fit so I could be free to dance and eat. Plus, I got compliments all night and people loved the sexy peekaboo back!

Beautiful dress!
I was unable to wear the dress but it was absolutely beautiful. I ordered a 6 but could have used the 4, but UPS does not do Saturday delivery to the area I was in. The length is a little longer than in the picture.

Great dress but runs too big
The dress is beautiful. Very well made. Runs about 2 sizes large. I usually wear a 4 sometimes a 2. Both the size I ordered and the smaller backup size were too big. I could have worn the 0. It's longer than the picture but would still have been fine had the size fit. Will try this again in the future in the smallest size.

Definitely looks better on than on a hanger.
Thank goodness I read through all the reviews, otherwise I would've ended up swimming in the dress. It runs big, very big. I normally wear size 2 dresses, sometimes size 4 if I know I'm going to stuff my face. However I ordered a size 0 and it still looked loose on me. I was initially disappointed when I took it out of he box. The quality wasn't great, it had wrinkles on the front, and the dress isn't really white. The color reminded me of concrete cement. Yes, almost light gray! I tried searching for another dress but couldn't find anything that caught my eyes. So i just decided to put it on anyways. To my pleasant surprise, The dress looked much better on. Then on the day of the event it actually looked pretty nice with the accessories, makeup, shoes, etc. I also received compliments ;)

This was the first time I had strangers asking me to stop and turn around!
I rented this dress along with the necklace for a cocktail event. I typically wear a size 4 but ordered a 2 and a 0 after reading the initial reviews. I absolutely loved it. I gave it 4 stars because I do wish it had a little more shape in the waist area (you can't really belt it), but I have never been asked to stop or turn around so much in one night! I thought the length was appropriately classy and the lace both delicate and bold. I recommend this dress!

Classy and gorgeous
The dress was amazingly gorgeous and the picture online is perfect in showing how it hangs and the back detailing. It was a little large, so I would have loved to have tried the 4 or brought a belt! The back was delicious and I got too many comments to count. I paired with a Kate Spade purse and dangle earrings that featured chrome, black and dark gray gems. Heals helped make it less saggy for me because it added some height. It was very comfortable and easy to wear. The material is delicate so I would suggest watching the type of bra you wear. I wore a lace bralette from VS which helped make it less noticeable in the back but outlines showed in the front. Nothing major to worry about, but just a heads up! All in all, this was a fabulous dress and I loved the simplicity of the front and intricate details of the back. Great for a rehearsal dinner or a wedding.

Great summer dressy dress!
This dress runs very large! I'm usually a 10. I wore the 8, but could have probably used a 6 because it was still roomy in the middle! The dress was great! I wore it for my birthday and everyone loved it! I loved the back of it!

Beautiful, sexy dress
I wore this dress for my wedding anniversary. It was a gorgeous dress. Because it isn't tight fitting, the dress is conservative enough to wear to a nice restaurant. However, the back is surprisingly sexy, so it's a nice compromise! It has a loose fit to it, and for the most part, it is true to size. I could have gone a size down, but I feared I wouldn't be comfortable.

Loved the back but was large in the midsection :(
I rented this dress for my bridal shower but did not end up wearing it because I was not happy with the fit. I ordered a size 2 and 4 and the size 2 fit my chest and hips, but the midsection seemed to have extra material and was not very flattering, which was a shame because it looks beautiful on the model! Possibly a smaller size would've looked better but I did not have time to order a smaller size.

Great dress for a white themed birthday party
This dress definitely runs big. I ordered a 10 and an 8 and I'm glad I had the 8. The 10 looked like a sack. Even though it's a loose fitting shift dress, I did wear spanx underneath because the front is plain. Everyone loved the dramatic back. Being tall, I had to be careful about raising my arms when dancing because the entire dress moves up with them as opposed to a dress without sleeves. Paired with a bold red lip and classic black heels

Love the back!
Rented this for my birthday party and, after a few tweaks, it made for a perfect party dress! The dress was way too long on me - I think it came down just below my knees. With the boxy fit of the dress it definitely wasn't very flattering! But with the help of some double-sided fashion tape, I "fake-hemmed" the dress a good 3-4" so that it hit more mid-thigh. FYI: The sizing is very off from the other brands that RTR normally carries, or maybe it's supposed to have a boxier cut, I'm not sure. Regardless, I would say this dress seems to be measured more along the US vanity sizing that we see in stores like Express and Banana Republic (where I could fit into a size 4 when I'm normally an 8). I rented a 6 & 8 and wore the 6, but I probably would've liked the 4 better.

Great dress, runs bigs but the smaller size worked perfect. Comfy and pretty!
It's not super white, more of a grey so it was fine for a wedding. The smaller size fit great and it was comfy all night. This was my first rental and I can't wait to order again!

Cute spring dress. Conservative yet sexy.
I liked this dress! I was surprised that I liked it much better from the front than the back. The back is fairly baggy until it hits the booty.

Classy sheath with a gorgeous surprise back
I rented this dress for the premiere of a clients film and it was perfect. I do have to say that the fit is not like the model in the photos as it looks very short and fitted on her. I'm 5'7" and it came to my knees and the fit is definitely a sheath and not a fitted figure hugging dress, which was perfect for the event but not what I though based on the photos. I'm normally a 6 but got the 8 as a back up as I have big hips and was worried that it may be tight. It wasnt. The 6 felt very loose (I now see its just the fit) so RTR overnighted me the 4 (love them) but that one was a little snug in the hips but not so much I couldnt have worn it. I felt in between sizes but went with the 6 to be comfortable. From the front this is such a classic, simple, gorgeous sheath and then the back is such an unexpected beautiful surprise. I paired it with my own neon yellow pumps and matching earrings from RTR. It was perfect and I got compliments all night. All 3 sizes still had the tags on so I know I was the first to try this gorgeous dress and couldn't have been happier. Love RTR!

Classy, great pop of lace in the back
Wore this to my engagement party. Runs very large, The 2 was too large, but the 0 was just right. Keep in mind, I do not wear a 0 in anything. It still fit like a shift dress, not fitted to the body or anything. Got lots of compliments.

The fanciest potato sack I ever put on my body.
I ordered this dress in an 8 and a 10. I wear usually an 8 or 10 in dresses. The 8 was gigantic. I literally could have fit another person in the dress with me, particularly around the midsection. I wish I would have ordered a 6.

Cute from behind, but like a sack in the front.
I thought this dress would be amazing if only it were nipped under the bust and at the waist to show off some curves. It was a baggy fit overall and arrived wrinkled anyways. I wore a different dress to my party. I wouldn't rent this again unless I could have it altered to fit my curves.

Perfect Pick for a Black and White Themed Affair
This was the perfect pick my cousins Black and White themed Bat Mitzvah. Its very rare I get to wear white to a formal event, so I was excited for this pick. I got so many compliments on it! It does run big, so I did go down a size. The 10 looked "frumpy" according to my boyfriend. The 8 was a little tight around my hips, but all in all it fit great! The back is absolutely beautiful. I was able to war a regular black bra and you couldnt even tell!! I am tall, and I was afraid it may be too short, but was not the case at all. 5 stars for this hot number

Rental Dud...
I rented this dress for a cocktail party and ended up not wearing it. It looked terrible on. It was very flat and plain in the front. The back was so pretty but it was not form fitting as it looks in the photo. It was unflattering, I ended up going out and buying another dress for my event.

This dress was perfect for a "white party" charity event we attended.
Fit: I am 5'1.5" and about 125lbs with a curvy frame and usually wear a size 4. I ended up wearing the 2 and it fit well in the bust and length, but I would have liked just a tiny bit more room in the hips. I was able to wear a plain, black bra underneath and the back still looked amazing. I got a TON of compliments all night long! Also, it was really hot out and this dress kept me pretty cool. Cons: it is hard to get on without getting some makeup on the collar, but there isn't much you can do about that. Also, it is more of a very light grey, not really white.
