Daring Dress!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I absolutely loved this dress even with the plunging deep V! It was a little intimidating wearing it, even with my double stick tape I had to keep checking on it but that is because I've never worn anything this low before. I wore it for my birthday dinner date with my husband and he loved the dress. I received a lot of compliments from strangers that evening, so this dress definitely stands out in a crowd! Overall, the fit was very comfortable - I wore the UK 8/US 4 size so it would fit tighter around my chest where I am smaller but still left plenty of room in the skirt for my larger hips. My only complaint is that the dress stuck out a little in the back at the bottom of the zipper. It may be that the one I got had just gotten stretched out a bit previously. I tried to smooth it down the best I could but it still stuck out a little throughout the night.

The dress was gorgeous and so comfortable!!

Overall fit: True to Size

I wore a UK size 10 (a US size 6) to my law school prom. It fit perfectly! I'd recommend some fashion tape for the sides, obviously, but other than that, it was a hit! It wasn't too tight, nor was it too baggy on me. It felt elegant and was extremely comfortable!

I loved this dress! I wish I could've kept it! It does show cleavage, so you might want to be prepared with double sided tape.

It was a great dress but, would not stay in place. I ended up wearing something else.

My cleavage was too small to make the dress work; even the sticky tape did not help. If you are petite like me it falls to your knees.

Too revealing

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
The dress fit well and was flattering, but I felt like way too much of my chest was exposed. I would have had to at least tape this in place so I didn't have a wardrobe malfunction, but even then, I think it was too revealing for the events I would attend and for my style.

Dress was amazing! I loved the low cut style. It was comfortable and easy to wear.

The dress was rented a lot. The fabric was beginning to pill and the zipper looked even frayed. RR should provide lower rates for dresses that have been rented at a high frequency rate.

I loved the look of the dress, and the quality was great.

I am not very large chested and thought that because of that the plunging neckline would not be a problem. However I found myself being self conscious all night that I was going to give a show. I was trying to adjust the dress tape in the bathroom multiple times in the night. It was a beautiful dress but I was not as comfortable as I would have like to have been.

Didn't work for me.

I really wanted this dress to work for me, but the plunge is just a little too deep and I was distracted by the constant checking of my fashion tape. I went home half way through the night and changed.

Super Sexy and Revealing

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
While the dress is truly lovely, you must be willing and able to risk showing a lot of skin in this one. If you are anything above a B cup, be prepared to show side boob and under cleavage. This is not always a bad thing but just consider that when evaluating the appropriateness for your event. I wasn't able to wear a bra with it at all so it left me looking a bit unsupported.

Perfect valentine's dress. Don't know how I'll top it next year!

I absolutely loved this dress. I'm not a particularly timid dresser, but I was worried about the neckline based on other reviews. I found the cut to be similar to the way its pictured. It was sexy, but not slutty, and I didn't feel like I was going to fall out. Plus the hemline balances the neckline out. The fit was good, color was beautiful (a little darker than the picture). I used a few pieces of double sided tape from CVS for extra security. My boyfriend loved this dress so much that he wanted to buy it for me and his mom raved about it after seeing our pictures too! Thanks rtr!

I had high hopes, but this dress was just TOO revealing to wear.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I'm not shy or that modest, but I couldn't bring myself to wear this to our New Year's Eve function :(. The low cut wasn't necessarily bad, but the way it fit me was bad. It seemed as though my torso wasn't long enough because the entire front gapped open - seriously you could see both ENTIRE breasts. Tape wouldn't have been enough for me to feel comfortable wearing it. Otherwise, the dress was beautiful...pretty material, a deep blue color, and nice length to balance the sexy plunge neckline. I hated not to be able to wear it!

Disappointed :(

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small

I ordered a 4 and 6 (usually wear 4 but read the previous reviews to order up a size). Neither fit well or was very flattering. The zipper in the back was crooked and the 6 was too big for my bust (I'm a 34C) and looked long. I don't think it is made for any athletic build.

Wanted to love this dress

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I chose this as a backup dress for a recent event. The fabric of the dress has a lovely drape and the color is very pretty. But, the deep v-neck was WAY too deep for my comfort level. I could have used double sided tape, but even then, I would have felt really uncomfortable. My daughters asked me if I was supposed to wear a shirt underneath it! If you have the confidence of J. Lo and an edgier event, than give this dress a try...but probably not the best choice for a more conservative gathering. I went with the Trina Turk St. John gown instead and it was perfect (and also completely different.) Also, felt the dress ran a little small, so if you are between sizes, go for the larger.

Fantastic color!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is so beautiful! I wore the 4, but for some reason I am unable to select that size. The color is a brighter blue in person, and the cut is show stopping! The biggest challenge I ran into was the deep V neck, but a little fashion tape fixes that problem! I would also wear spanx with this to smooth everything out!
