Didn't choose this dress, but I LOVED it!
I rented 3 dresses with my Unlimited for a holiday party, and although I didn't choose this one, I absolutely loved it (so did my boyfriend)! I would have chosen this dress if I wasn't won over by sparkles. This dress is seeeexxxxy, but very classy at the same time. The lace front is beautiful, while not showing too much. It fit like a glove and hugged every curve, in a good way. The fabric was thick enough to smooth out imperfections. The back is gorgeous also but you can't wear a bra (even a backless shows with the low cut lace in the front, but it's thick enough to hold the girls in a nice place). This dress is great for an hourglass figure. It was a great length (I'm 5'6") and I hope I find some reason to rent it again someday!

Love this dress!
I rented the 8R..length was good. .I am 5'7" and wore 3" inch heels and dress just skimmed floor. There is a front lace panel in the front of this dress thats adds a very subtly sexy element...and the exposed back..yowza! Didn't need to wear a bra...dont think I could have without taking away from lace front....so probably not the best dress if you are large chested. The material is nice and thick.. rent it, you will love it!

Ahhhhmazingly Gorgeous
This was my backup dress and I wore it to the Church for my cousins wedding. Runs a little large so you may need to size down. I rented the long and it was WAY too long. I'm 5'6" and wore 4 inch heels, was still too long. It is a classy showstopper though, especially with the little peekaboo lace cutout in the front. Definitely worth renting.

Sexy and wedding appropriate
Beautiful dress, got a lot of compliments. It's just the right mix of sexy and appropriate. The size 6 comfortably fit my bust, the 4 had a zipper issue but I think it would've fit too. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because of the zipper issue. Loved the dress

Incredibly flattering dress!
This dress was incredibly flattering! It was the perfect length and fit and it swayed just right when walking! I wore 3 inch heels and the dress stopped just high enough not to trip or step on it. I wore pasties as it's cut in such a way that you cannot wear a bra and it was perfectly enough! The back was an extra special touch! It's classy sexy and elegant! By far the best dress I've rented!

Stunning
This dress hugged your body in all the right places! If you are curvy this is perfect for you to show them off! I wore pasties with this since the back is open. It was a little big in the top, but I couldn't size down because of my booty. This was a showstopper and made me feel glamorous!

Fit Like It was Made for Me
The dress was gorgeous! I wore it for a black tie charity event. Got compliments all night and those that I told couldn't believe I had rented it. This was my "back up" dress but honestly, up until the event I couldn't decide between my dresses. They were both amazing. I will definitely renting again!

Loved this dress! So flattering!
I rented this dress for a black tie company dinner. It was so flattering and I got so many compliments. The dress is heavy enough to hide most bumps. The lace panel in front is beautiful! Just enough to make it a little sexy but not revealing at all. The slit in front was perfect and fell closed when you weren't walking. It is form fitting so you want to make sure you pick the right size.

This was a backup dress, which I did not wear. It fit beautifully with just a little extra room in the midsection that would have looked better on me had it been more fitted.

Felt like a million bucks
Dress fit true to size. I am a solid 4 and the 4 fit pretty nice- the collar felt a tad tight could be because the dress material is quality so it is a little heavy. There was some bag around the belly which was actually slimming as the dress skirt hung and gave my belly a flat appearance. The size 2 was my back up and that was *significantly* smaller. The back was beautiful and made my waist look very small. Being a swimmer I have broad shoulders. There was some tightness around the armpits (in the front) which gave me some armpit pudge if I didn't stand with shoulders alll the way back. Walking in this dress was a delight. The silk lining feels amazing as it swishes against your legs and the fabric kicks out and around you giving you a dramatic look. Head turner. All in all a good rental; given that I couldn't try this dress on before purchasing.

Dressed to Kill
I wore this dress for a James Bond themed party and i got lots of compliments! It definitely fits very tight (I had to be zipped into the dress), and it runs a little small, so make sure to get a size up extra. It was comfortable to dance in and sit in. Overall, great dress, just order a size up!

The dress that fits like a glove
This was my first RTR rental. Was super excited as I have run into many weddings guests in the past that had amazing dresses, and when I asked them- their answer was always 'RTR'. I was also nervous as I had no idea what my size was, so it was reassuring that RTR provides a comp alt size! This dress was amazing! Loved the cut, the accent of the halter with the mesh in front, the slit, and the back... it was definitely a eye turner!

Classy Dress with Sex Appeal
I loved this dress!! It was unique and gorgeous but the 2P was a bit large in the top (I'm 32 DD) and overall. The 0 was not available at rental so I went with the 2..I'm 5'2" and with 3 in heels length was spot on. Excellent quality dress and I will order 0 next event!!

Hollywood starlet!
I picked this dress because the original one i wanted ended up not being available a few days before a black tie wedding. Ipicked this one and it did not disappoint! I wore the 0R and it fit pretty well, albeit a touch large in the waist. I received a ton of compliments and my boyfriend loved it!

Made well, fit to perfection!
Loved the way this dress fit. Hugged curves in all the right places. The only thing I didn't care for as much was how high the slit in the middle went, as I wore this to both the church and the reception for the wedding. Received tons of compliments! #blacktieaffair

So comfortable and fun to wear
The regular was perfect (I'm 5'-6" and wore 3.5" heels). It flows beautifully when you walk and the back is cut beautifully. I highly recommend this dress.

Serious compliments all night long!!!
This dress will get you noticed! Rented it for the BCA Ball, and it was perfectly elegant. Super classy & super SEXY. You can't see it in a lot of the pictures, but FYI, there's a slit in the front/ middle of the skirt, that goes straight up to just above the knee. Since, I'm 5'5" & I ordered the Tall length, so I could wear my 6" heels with it, the slit made walking with that length really easy. Gorgeous!

Beautiful but long
I am a true size zero at 5'2 and the dress was way too long, even with 5 inch heels. I tried on the 2 petite but it was too large in the waist and bust. I safety pinned the bottom about an inch or inch and a half as I loved the dress. The fit was great through bust, waist and hips. Just wish it wasn't so long.

Classic yet sexy with a gorgeous neckline and back; hugs the right places
Classic with a twist. Loved the detailing in front. Gorgeous cut--eye-catching yet classy. The back and slit up the front are sexy and the neckline is lovely. Fits like a glove. Recommend an up-do and dangling earrings to accentuate the dress. Received compliments all night and after.

Wow! This dress was perfect, but I definitely needed an 8 over the 6! RTR unfortunately didn't have my back up size so I had to go with another dress. I would have worn this in a heartbeat if they had my size.

Elegant dress for formal occasion
Beautiful dress worn for a gala. The material was thick enough that I didn't need a bra. The long length was nice since I'm 5'9. It would be difficult to dance in this dress, however.

Classy, sexy, dress to impress!
Oh man. I got so many compliments. I needed spanx for the thighs, and the band around the torsoe has no give, but this looked gorgeous. Super classy, sexy...great. I was perfectly able to dance also - the slit really helps. Not as hard to walk in as you might think. Highly recommend.

Delivered on time, fit well, and looked the same as pictures
I ordered a 0R and it was the perfect fit and length. The fabric is high quality. It was easy to carry and got me a lot of compliments at the wedding. I have a slim figure and my fear is that a dress I haven't tried before may look lose on me or make me look thin. This one was a winner!

The dress was unique and beautiful! And classy yet sexy.
This dress was my back up dress and it came in and fit me perfectly! I'm 5,4 108 lbs. I received many compliments. I didn't have to wear a bra which was a huge plus for me because bra stickies can be a pain! It was a tad long but I wore 3 1/2 inch heels and it worked out. The slit in the front wasn't up too high and still allowed me to walk comfortably. The neck part was a little tight especially when I sat down so I had to make sure I pull the dress up a little before sitting so as not to pull on the fabric/neck piece. Overall, it was a perfect dress, and if I were rich, I'd buy it!

Stunning
I wore this to a friend's wedding and I have never felt more confident before in my life! The dress is STUNNING and so flattering. I am consistently a size 4, so I was surprised when the 6 was a more comfortable, natural fit. I received so many compliments and absolutely adored this gown. The dress is heavy but nothing of concern or uncomfortable. The cut of the back is beautiful and my favorite part was the middle slit for sure. I wish I could own this dress.

Cute but went with a different option
This fit true to size bordering toward running small. I have a very small waist comparatively, and this barely zipped. I didn't wear it because I thought it looked a little too worn out in person. Would be ok, but the wedding I'm attending starts when it's still light out.

My dream dress
I was in LOVE with this dress and was devastated that I wasn't able to wear it. The day my dress was supposed to ship I got a message from my RTR stylist that the size 2 wasn't available to ship because it had been damaged. I asked them to go ahead and send me the size 0 just in case I would magically be able to fit into it. Hey, a girl can dream right?! :) When the size 0 arrived I could get it zipped with a little effort but I just wasn't comfortable. I wanted to be able to breathe, its important to me. I will make a second attempt to rent this dress again for my next formal event. It's stunning and I felt like a million bucks!
