Simple yet very classy + flattering!
I ended up loving the dress but wishing my local RTR store had more sizing options (my fault for the last minute search). It was a VERY flattering dress, perfect for the black tie wedding I attended.

Easy dress to wear
I wore this dress to a formal new years eve party. It was super easy to wear and looked great. The back detail gave the dress some interest and the tie around waist gave it the perfect fit. Even with the low neckline, there was enough fabric to cover a full bust without looking sleazy.

Loved the dress. I felt comfortable and elegant all night and did not have tape/pin any of it.
Because of the notes I saw on the dress, I ordered the size 4 and requested a size 6 as backup. I ended up wearing the size 4 because the jersey fabric allowed some stretch. Also, the dress remained wrinkle-free all night. I eventually wore the sash at the front because on one occasion moving through the crowd it became undone as it got caught between two chairs. Other than that, I loved the dress and would rent it again.

Didn't expect it to fit, pleasantly surprised!
I ordered the 2R and 4R as a backup, a little upset that the 2P and 4P were not available, but as it turns out, the regular was a perfect length. I wore 5 inch heels and a sticky backless bra, and everyone LOVED it, especially me!

Wonderful fit, loved this classic dress!
Great fitting dress, even thought the 2R fit me, I liked having a slight give around the ribcage so I ended up wearing the 4R. The dress was a hit, the fabric does not wrinkle-no need to press it. Very hard to wear a bra with this dress given the back, but I felt well covered even though I have a smaller chest and danced a lot (I am sure it would hold larger chests well too!). One small draw back was that the dress is quite long, even with 4 inch heels, I had to hold the dress a bit when I walked, but it did not bother me one bit. I highly recommend this stunning dress!

I wore this as a bridesmaid in my friend's wedding.
The dress fit perfectly with three inch heels—but as the night went on I switched to two inch heels and that worked fine as well.

Perfect formal black dress!
Wore this as a bridesmaid dress. It was perfect. Wore the 8R and it fit perfectly! I felt beautiful and received tons of compliments throughout the night. The 8R neckline looked perfect! But other reviews are true the neckline is higher than in the pic of the model. But no complaints here. Wore a sticky bra as well. I danced the night away, wore 3.5 inch heels for the ceremony with the dress barely skimming the floor.

Material was softer in person. The dress had a very flattering fit and the straps and everything stayed in place perfectly. 10/10 would rent again (or buy this dress)

Very simple black dress. Made well, fit great!
The back of this dress is beautiful! The front of the dress is a very simple halter. Ties in the back, which accentuates the waist. They sent this to me as a back up dress, but I chose a more loud dress. Simple and elegant. Length fit as excpected.

I ended up returning the dress!
Okay, so I have kind of an extreme body type. Full hips, chest, and small waist- and I feel like its important for me to highlight the hips so I don't end up looking as full as my hips all over. I thought that this would be easily achievable with this dress. Wrong! There was A LOT of excess material in the stomach area. It seems to me, that it would be much better for someone trying to hide their waist. Also the top is very conservative. That being said, when I called in a panic I was able to get a next day return!

The oldest bridesmaid in a wedding of 20 somethings, but didn't feel that way in this dress
Dress fit as the reviews noted. I wore 2 inch heels and needed to pin down the front as it was a bit high for a halter. Dress was comfortable and very flattering. Very happy with it

If you don't have a long torso this is NOT the dress for you. The torso banded area came up mid boobs on me. It was extremely unflattering due to this. I noticed this in some of the other girls photos and thought that it might be an issue and it definitely was. However on someone with a long torso, this may be beautiful on you. Also there is a lot of coverage at the chest. If you have a small chest you may look like it's swallowing you. It wasn't the dress for my body but the quality was nice. It was flattering in the hips/legs.

My husband couldn't take his eyes off of me. :)
The dress is really pretty. My husband and best friend both liked the back of the dress and said the fit was really nice. The jersey material was very comfortable and didn't wrinkle which was nice. I would recommend this dress for smaller busted girls though because the part that hits under the breast is really high.

Easy and classic dress to wear for a night out!
I ordered the 2R and 4R. For some reason, the 2R was much shorter than the 4R. I ended up choosing the 4R b/c of the length. Very comfortable and elegant dress. Would not recommend for large busted people or for those who want a lower neckline in front .

This was my backup dress and I didn't wear it.
Pros: The fabric is heavy, but fluid; dress is well made and feels great on. very comfortable. I really wanted to love it. Cons: I am small-chested and this dress did absolutely nothing (nada/zippo/zilch) for my bustline. This design is better suited to someone with larger breasts.

Perfect for an evening gala!
Classic and comfortable! Was a "bonus" dress when a size wasn't available but worked out perfectly! Despite being fairly busty, the dress fit great with enough support and no concerns for excess cleavage or "wardrobe malfunctions"!

Didn't wear this dress -
This was a dress that was sent as a backup, and it is very awkward. The place for your boobs to go is extremely high up, unnaturally so. I also think this dress is better suited for very skinny women with small or no curves. I did not wear this and would not recommend it to any woman I know.

PERFECT
This dress was amazing. It felt great and looked great. The back was really nice and the length was perfect with my 5 inch heels. The only reason I ended up not wearing this dress was because I decided I wanted a bright color, but this dress was absolutely perfect in every other way. All of my friends were in love with it and one friend lamented not ordering it for herself. Recommend for any age. Great for prom because it won't fall down as you dance.

Elegant dress
This dress was much more elegant than I had intended which is why it did not work for my event. The fit was fine, however you can't wear a bra with this dress which is also why it did not work for me.

My first choice did not fit, and the customer service was outstanding in getting this dress to me.
The material was amazing! So comfy but looked elegant at the same time. It was not too revealing up top, and it did not accentuate the stomach area either. I recently had a baby, so I did not want something to tight in those areas. This dress was a perfect fit!

Pretty dress, not for a petite frame
The fit and feel of the dress was very luxurious, but I did not end up wearing this dress as I felt I was drowning in fabric from all the pleating. My taller friend tried the dress on though, and it looked great.

The girls are so helpful and all the goodies that come with your shipment are lovely!
Fit was snug but true to size. I've got a bit of fluff so it wasn't exactly slender on me. The open back was fun and the jersey material was so soft. Oddly enough I picked a dress that just about matched the bridesmaid dresses that night!

Wore this for a fund raising event.
As others mentioned the neckline is very conservative and the straps are fairly thick. I'm a 47 year old mom and I even thought so! Lost one star for this. I am fairly broad (38 B) so the 10R fit well but definitely choose your size and one up if you are more on the athletic build side. The length was fine with a three inch heel-could have worn a 4 inch (I am 5'6 +) No problem with fit as plenty of space in the hips/bottom. The fit is loose and comfortable. Nice dress.

Sexy but still leaves a bit to the imagination
I normally vary between a 10 and a 12, but since this was stretchy I decided to go for the smaller size. It fit beautifully. I have a larger bust, but didn't need a bra with this. The v-neck in the front is higher than you would expect so it isn't too busty - and the back is a beautiful surprise. I will admit it does take a bit of time to get in to it. I would definitely do your hair and make up AFTER you get in the dress, because you cannot get into it gracefully at all.

I got so many compliments on my dress all night .
It was a little tight on my back where the straps were located. I didn't want any extra bulge popping out so i went with the 10 instead of the 8. However the material is stretchy so it was comfortable everywhere else.

Super cute dress
I just had twins so I wasn't sure what size was going to fit. But I was happy that the material was stretchy and it fit really nice. I'm short so I was concerned that the dress was going to be too long, but with 3" heals it was perfect. I wished it showed a little more cleavage.

Everyone complimented my dress and it photographs really well!
It is form fitting in the bust and waist and hangs loosely down. This is the first time I was able to wear an open back dress because I usually have constrictions due to a larger bust. If you don't like the thick straps that much, you can easily twist them a little bit to make them thinner and it still looks completely normal! I recommend this dress to everyone because it is very flattering!
