I'm in LOVE with this dress!

This dress is even more beautiful in person and it's so comfortable, I originally wanted to order the dress in a 0 with a back up 2 but the 2 was not available. The reviews said it ran big so I ordered the 0 and hoped for the best. It fit like a glove! It was a little long for me but with very high heels I was fine. This was the perfect dress, I didn't want to send it back. I would highly recommend!! Can't wait to rent again!!

Such a fun dress

The dress was so easy! Both the 2 and 0 fit well but I chose the 0 for a little more support in the bust. I did not have to wear any kind of bra but more ample ladies may need one. The material in the skirt is forgiving, so there's no real tightness to the dress making it very comfortable. The sheer hit me low ribcage which was fine; it is not a dress that accentuates the waist. I did not have a problem with the waist or zipper. I felt great all night.

Disappointed

I was reallyyyyy excited about this dress but when I tried it on, my heart sank. The top part fit great but something about the way the dress falls around the hip area makes for an awkward look. It's like a "boot leg" fit..dress addition. If that makes any sense at all. It would be A LOT more flattering if the dress was a bit more fitted around the lower half and not so "wide" - I have curves : hips and a butt and I was not at all impressed. So much so I sent it back the next day :-/ Hope you have better luck w it then I did!

Classy, sleek, and flowy evening gown.

I am a little on the conservative side so I was worried that this dress might be too revealing but it was not the case at all! The second mesh section ends above your belly button and is very flattering. The cut outs w/ the large polka dots made your look classy and elegant. I highly recommend this dress to anyone!

Runs a little large, and the hem was shorter than I expected (had to wear low heels). Still, a phenomenal dress! So playful but still fancy enough to wear to a formal event. Love love love this dress!

Compliment all night on this fabulous dress!

Dress was so beautiful! I loved every part of it! I could have worn a size down but was still fine for me to wear! The dress is an A line fit so it's great for girls with a bigger bottom half so there's no need to size up. I probably would have worn the 4 if they had it in stock when I ordered! The long was super long even with my heels on. Beautiful dress all the way around and definitely one of my favorites that I've rented so far!

perfect dress for black tie

i think almost half of the women at this wedding complimented me on this dress. it was a perfect choice for black tie. i would recommend ordering an alternate in a size down on this dress as i'm usually between a 6 and 8 in dresses and the 8 in this dress so loose in the second see through area. i went with wearing the 6L and it fit perfectly. i'm 5'8" and wore 4 inch heels and the dress was just skimming the floor. i will note that the zipper on this is a little difficult to zip because it is supposed to be a hidden zipper. so just be careful or you will break it! this dress was easy to dance in too!

I got compliments all night. The dress was so elegant. The dress fit like a glove!

Fit well! If I had bigger boobs I would be worried about a nip slip but it was perfect. I'm 34C 6 was ordered to be safe and I'm glad I got that bc a 4 would have been uncomfortable all night. So happy about everything!

I loved this dress but it was too short to wear with anything but flats and even too short for the flats in the R. The L would have been great but unavailable.

Everyone loved my dress. It was for an office holiday party and was perfect for the occasion!

I'm normally a size 6 or 8, so I was surprised I fit in the dress. I couldn't wear a bra with it but it wasn't noticeable. I also wore low heels and you could still see the front of my shoes.

Beautiful Dress

I ordered both the OL and the 2R and they both fit, but the 0 was more flattering since it was more form fitting. It was a little long but I actually found the R a little short, so I think for my height it's just a matter of how high your heels are. Mine were 3-4 inches and I just wish it had been a smidge longer but it really didn't bother me once I got to the event.

This dress is amazing.

It fell perfectly -- albeit a little long -- and hugged in the right places. I was worried about getting a column dress because I have relatively wide hips. But I got compliments from just about everyone, and felt so so glamorous.

Didn't end up wearing the dress

I ordered this dress as a backup, I'm typically a size 0/2 long, but I ordered a size 2 long since 0 was not available. The 2 was a bit big, so a 0 would have been much better. Bust wise I'm a 34-A, so a size 2 was too loose in this area, and it was also a little too loose around the waist. I have a straight and narrow frame, so this dress may have fit much better in a size 0. Also I was wearing 4" heels, so a long was a perfect length for this type of shoe height. Otherwise this dress is beautiful in person, it has a very classic silhouette and I would have loved to wear it had it fit better.

compliments for dayz.

this dress was AMAZING. i had issues receiving my first choice dress, and the person at RTR helped me get this stunner by the next day. i am not kidding when i say i was getting compliments all night. i didn't mind that the bottom wasn't as fitted as some people might like (i'm a little thicker in that area), so it actually fit me quite well. i do have a narrow rib cage/waist, so the 10 was a bit big there, but not in a way that detracted from the look. couldn't wear it with super high heels - but i hate heels anyway so nbd. loved it loved it loved it.

Gorgeous and classy, aside from the bride best dress in the room IMO.

Both the 6L and 4L fit me fine. 6L fit better in the bust but was slightly loose-ish everywhere else, the 4L fit me like a glove throughout but the bust area was slightly small (was pulling it up throughout the night just to make sure I wasn't pouring out.) I normally wear a size 6-8, but crash dieted for a week leading up to this event and so I went with wearing the 4L just to prove a point to myself. If your very busty But slim everywhere else this dress might give you trouble. Definitely order 2 sizes if you plan on getting this dress.

Wonderful

Dress was beautiful. I typically wear a size 4-6, but when ordering it gave me the option to order a backup dress and I selected the 2 long because I am 5'8 and size 2's tend to be short on me. I have a slim waist, so the size 4 ended up being a bit wide but the size 2L fit perfectly.

Blown away by my first rental! Stunning Dress!!

I wore this to a black tie wedding. It ended up fitting well. It fit perfectly across the bust but was a little bit loose in the skirt area. That made the dress very comfortable. I was able to dance all night. I got so many compliments on this dress, I didn't want to return it! People are still asking me where I got the dress. In LOVE with this dress!

Stunning dress, Very classy and sexy at the same time. Wore it for NYE, received many compliments

True to size. Able to wear a strapless bra because the fabric covers it perfectly in the front and back. I ordered a 4 L and it runs long. I'm 5'10 and 2.5-3" heels and the dress just allowed my shoes to peep out. Perfect length for me, but if I wasn't wearing above 2" heels, it would have been too long.

Perfect mix of formal and edgy!

I was a little nervous about this dress, but it ended up being perfect for the event! We went to a gala on NYE that was formal, but many girls wore cocktail dresses. This dress is great because it is formal, but still fun. It is so unique that 5 different strangers stopped me to tell me they loved my dress. The only downside is that it was a few inches too long, even with heels on. But I am very short (5'1"), so I don't think most girls will have this issue.

different and unique from every other dress in the room- so many compliments!

I'm usually a size 2 or 4 but the 0R was perfect fit and length wise. My only complaint was that the 0 had a snag in the mesh right in the center of my chest, like where a necklace would have hit, but after attempting to smooth it out it wasn't nearly as noticable. Even though this dress shows some skin it still felt appropriate for a formal occassion, i absolutely adored it!

Obsessed

This dress is awesome , gorgeous and unique and flattering especially if you have a small waist but big hips because it flares out right after the belly button. The only thing I will say is that if you're petite, it's long, I wore the 0R and I'm 5'2 and I had to hold it up when I was on the dance floor to keep from stepping on it. Also, if you're chesty watch out because you really cannot wear a bra with it. Definitely runs big though, so make sure you size down! I'm a 2 and the 0 fit like a glove

Loved it

Fit: I'm a 6 in almost all clothing and this 6L fit great, not tight at all in the tummy or bottom half. It was snug on the bust but I'm a 32DD. I actually couldn't wear a strapless bra bc you could see the bottom of my bra peeking through the chiffon. Something to think about if you're okay with that. I'm 5'7" and got the Long and had to wear my highest heels and the skirt still touched the ground just a tad, but not a deal breaker. I got so many compliments all night. I had twins 2 yrs ago and don't wear bikinis and was worried this would be a disaster but the see-through part is more on your lower ribs and you can't see your flesh clearly enough anyway, really just the illusion of your skin. Great dress!

fun & fancy dress w/o the stress of a fancy price tag

I received so many compliments on this dress. I will say I feel it runs large. I ordered a 6R and a 4R. I still have some post pregnancy weight and was fully expecting to wear the 6. I ended up in the 4 and it was roomy. I also wore a relatively short heel and felt like the dress could have been longer. If you like to wear a massive heal, as I typically do, I'd probably go with the longer option. All in all, I loved the dress and the rental experience was super easy and I'd absolutely do it again.

Loved this dress, perfect for a formal affair!

I wore this dress to a black tie optional museum gala and absolutely loved it! I usually wear a 4 or 6 and the 4 felt a little roomy but still fit great. I wore it without a bra but a strapless would have worked too. This dress is a head turner and so comfortable. I have very wide hips and didn't have any problem with this dress.

I absolutely loved this dress! It was so comfy and very unique. Got many compliments and felt great!

I usually wear either a 0 or 2 in a formal dress like this. The 2 could have worked but it was a little big in the hips so I wore the O to the event. I LOVED that I didn't have to wear a bra and was never worried about a strap showing etc. The O was getting a little worn looking and the zipper was very close to being broken when I first tried it on.

This dress is really flattering and fun.

It was super comfy and cute. Got tons of compliments. Would wear this dress to every formal event if I could. It does run large. The 6 was alittle big on me but the 4 was too small on my boobs.

This dress is Audrey Hepburn meets Gossip Girl, in the best way.

I really can't get over how much I loved this dress. I usually get both a 4 and a 6, but only the 4 was available so I was a little nervous. However, it fit like a glove. I have a fairly muscular top half but dress was truly flattering in every way. The arm holes were large enough that they didn't pinch, and the back was beautiful. I agree with other reviewers that the bottom half was looser than many other dresses, but it balances out the top half very nicely. I got compliments all night, and it was truly the most unique dress at the event.

This dress was a knock out, everyone loved it. I got so many compliments all night!

The dress fit true to size, if you have a little junk in the trunk you may want to size up. I have a booty and it fit well, it was snug but in a cute way not a lumpy way. The midsection was so cute, it wasn't tight, but I think that's okay. The dark section was big enough to cover my bra and boobs (32E, so that's kind of a feat in itself). The whole dress was just seriously perfect. I wanted to never return it ever.

LOVE!!

FIT GREAT! I ORDERED 2 AND 0 - WENT WITH 0. A LITTLE LONG - I AM 5'3.5" AND IT WAS TOUCHING THE FLOOR WITH MY 4" HEELS. BUT I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF WEARING THIS DRESS. I'M A 34B CHEST AND DIDNT HAVE TO WEAR A BRA WHICH IS MY FAVORITE THING. I WAS WORRIED ABOUT NEEDING SPANX IF THE WAIST WAS SNUG BUT IT STARTS TO FLARE AT THE PERFECT POINT. VERY HAPPY WITH THIS - TONS OF COMPLIMENTS!!
