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.

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"!

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!

I got so many compliments on my dress all night .

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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.

Average, but very comfortable and flattering. Overnighted as my first choice dress didn't fit.

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wouldn't have picked this dress originally, but I had few choices the day before my event. The fabric was comfortable and it was relatively flattering. I did pin the top v-neck down, as it's much more conservative than it seems to be in the photo. I would call it high coverage. It was also quite short. I'm 5'7 and had to wear kitten heels, and it was still about an inch off the ground.

Perfect dress for the Holiday Ball I attended. Elegant and classy and extremely comfortable. Definitely a throw on and forget it dress. Didn't have to worry about straps falling, adjusting, etc. all night long. Would definitely recommend a nu-bra, if needed, as the back of the dress is a little low for a strapless/regular bra. Thank you, RTR!

STYLIST REVIEW

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This Standing On the Edge gown is a perfect black tie option! It's an extremely comfortable jersey material, and has a very nice belted waist. However, I would only recommend this dress for A to C cups. The halter and open back leaves little room fuller busts, as it hits at a very high bust line. The fabric has excellent stretch and you will definitely be comfortable at any formal affair!

Very simple black dress. Made well, fit great!

Size worn: 0R
Rented for: Formal Affair
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!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
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!

Size worn: 10R

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

wedding

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
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.

Easy and classic dress to wear for a night out!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size

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.

Didn't wear this dress -

Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

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.

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.

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!

Wore this for a fund raising event.

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
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.

Everyone complimented my dress and it photographs really well!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size

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!

This is a great dress that I wore for a black tie event. I wore the stick-on bra because the back is open right where the bra strap would be, but the bust area was wide enough that I didn't have any issues. The dress laid very nicely and the fabric was very forgiving. Loved it!

High v-neck, but great material

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I almost went with this one for my event, but didn't move forward with it. The material is great and it would have been a very comfortable dress to wear! I just didn't feel too special in it. It runs a little small in the back for someone with a bigger chest. And one big note: the neckline is higher than shown in the picture.

I was really bummed when I put this dress on. It appears to be strangely sized on the top and does not look at all like the model. Basically (And I am small busted) there was not enough material on the top half so that you had no room for your breasts. At first I thought there might have been a manufacturer defect so I tried on the other size and it had the same problem. Sadly, this dress although beautiful would only be appropriate for a VERY small chested person who was very short waisted.
