Very pretty, but didn't end up wearing it.
I didn't find that this dress was as flattering on my figure as it was on the skinny model.

Too long for petite women
I wore this dress for New Year's Eve (2015/2016). This dress definitely runs very large - I'm extremely glad I saw that mentioned in another review because otherwise I think the dress would have been unwearable. I would even suggest going 2 sizes down, at least for your back-up size, if you are short. As it was, I went with one size down (6) for my order size and then one more size down for my back-up (4); I ended up wearing the back-up 4, but I think a 2 would have been a better fit. Overall, the fit was just okay on my curvy 5'3" frame. The length was definitely way too long. While the lace back is sexy, from the front, the hemline made the dress look almost matronly. I had to "hem" it with safety pins to make the length acceptable to me. (This did not work out that well; it was extremely short whenever I sat down.) I wore it with a very large, long necklace in the front to play it up, and I wore thigh high leather boots with bare legs below. I would probably not recommend this for petite women, but on a taller frame at the right size, perhaps it would be a very lovely dress. In my experience, this rental was just okay.

Great dress for my family reunion!
I picked this dress for a formal event for my family's reunion last summer. It fit well (true to size) and I loved the design of the back. I give it 3 starts because it seems like the lace print bleed through the front of the dress causing a slight stain during the cleaning process. Otherwise, it was a great dress. Still looked great in pictures.

Chic front with beautiful detailed back, nice material, good length for tall girls!
I liked this dress but the size 4 was way too big on me and fit more like a sheath. Although there was a zipper on the side, I did not need to use it because it was so big. I am going to try this again in a smaller size. I thought the dress was much longer than it seems on the model.

Comfortable perfection!
I don't know how I made it all night without pictures because the dress was simply stunning. I received rave reviews at the party. The shape was the right amount of fitted to make me feel comfortable and confident. My favorite was talking to people, making my exit, and then having them chase me down to say "Wow!" when they saw the back. I will 100% rent this dress again...maybe that's the good part of missing photographs this time around :)

Beautiful for my rehearsal dinner- conservative but eye catching!
Everyone raved about the back of this dress. It is a super comfy fabric. It's not fitted- so if you're not into the sheath look- don't rent it. I loved it! Very "business in the front- party in the back." Runs a little big.

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.

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.

Kind of frumpy
I think this dress would be really flattering on a slender person with fewer curves. I felt like it made me look boxy because it hid my waist line and made it look like I was one size from my boobs to my butt. I did not wear this but it keeps popping up to be reviewed and it's driving me crazy.

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.

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

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!

Not for tall people
This is the first dress that I have attempted to wear from this designer; I am tall and not rail-thin, I'm thin in the waist but have a full bottom. The area of the dress that was supposed to correspond to my hips was way up by the top of my waist and it was anything but sheath-like. I think this would be okay in the smaller sizes if you did not have a similar body type. I really wanted to be able to wear this.

Just wasn't right for me
Unfortunately, I had to return the dress and swap it for another one at the Georgetown store. The previous reviews were right; the dress isn't white- it's almost a grey color, and it doesn't fit as nicely as it looks on the model. I wore a 4, and usually vacillate between a 4 and a 6, but even though it fit, the back sorta just hung there instead of being fitted. Glad I was able to return it and get something else, but it just wasn't right for 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.

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.

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.

It was a loose sheath but hugged the curves enough to give it shape. It was comfortable to be in all night and the back detail was stunning!

Super stylish, but too big
I really liked this dress, but it was a bit too big and thus made me look boxy. The back is amazing and it really is a great dress. I didn't end up wearing it, but it would be great for someone that fits better in that style.

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.

Everyone loved the dress!
Pros: Amazing back, super flattering and comfortable. Cons: Lines under the dress are very visible. Even the sticky from VS showed through. I didn't wear a bra, which was fine, but the flower pasties were VERY visible so I had to use clear tape.

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.

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.

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.

Husband's reaction to seeing it was: "WOW" :)
Great fit & comfortable. I got a lot of compliments! It seems to fit a little looser and longer to me than the pics here. I'm an 8/10 & 5'9" and it fell a little lower on the thigh and was roomier than the pictures indicate. It had a few wrinkles from shipping and did need to be pressed which took a little bit since the label says not to use steam. It was a great dress

AriZoni Theatre Awards ceremony
I ordered both the 6 and 8, given the cut of the dress; a sheath style rarely works for busty woman who have been gifted with smaller waistlines.. More often than not, the boxy silhouette creates an unflattering look; making a woman appear heavier (in my case: pregnant) than she truly is. On occasion, sizing down helps, hence having given it a shot. Unfortunately, gorgeous as this dress is (especially the detail on the back for which the photo does no justice) the style was no different for me. This design is geared more toward women with more going on in the lower-back, than the upper-front, and something very toned and tight in the middle.

The back is spectacular!
This dress is perfect for someone who carries a little weight around the middle (like me!) but it is still so flattering and hot - b/c it's short enough to get attention w/ the right shoes AND the back is just to-die-for. I wore this to a friend's rehearsal dinner, and b/c it was a destination wedding and I was on a tight time-frame, I actually wore it to the airport, on the plane, and straight to the party. I got stopped multiple times in the airport and over the course of the night (people complimenting me on the dress). It's not too sexy (and I wore lower nude sandals/wedges while traveling) and even over the course of those several hours, it traveled great - no wrinkles even after sitting on a plane for an hour.

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.

Beautiful back
This dress was sent to me because the original dress I ordered suddenly became unavailable. I was skeptical because of the shape but as soon as I put it on I knew. It was very flattering in the front and the lace back was sexy but not too revealing. I wore a NuBra and felt the dress fit true to size, maybe slightly large. As usual top notch customer service from RTR. I will definitely rent this dress again.

Nailed It
This dress was perfect! I got almost as many compliments as the bride. The 4 was a little tight but the 6 fit perfectly. It was the perfect length for a sit-down dinner and I was able to dance with out giving a "show." I absolutely love love LOVE this dress and wouldn't hesitate to wear it again!
