Absolutely beautiful dress!!
This was my first RTR and definitely will not be my last!! The plum color was amazing!! I ordered the 6L and the 8L. I honestly could have worn either. I was more comfortable in the 8L. I am 5' 9" and wore 3 inch heels. Length was perfect! Couldn't wear a bra, but it was perfectly fine. This dress was stunning! I received so many compliments! Such an easy process!

Such a fun dress!
Loved this dress and got a ton of compliments. I hardly ever wear purple and have never worn cutouts so it was fun to step outside of my comfort zone in a small way. The cutouts sit right on your rib cage so a bra was definitely not an option, but the dress is tight enough (and my boobs small enough) that I was fine going without. I got the 6L and wore 3-inch heels and the length was perfect (I'm 5'6). The dress itself is fairly thick and has a liner so I would not recommend this for a hot summer day. But it was great for a March wedding. I was excited about the pockets as well but the dress was tight enough that you could see anything I put in the pocket (even an ID).

Sexy But Classy
This dress was perfect in every way but one. I wore this to a fundraising gala. It was formal enough, but subtle and classy. Great color and true to size. I'm normally a size 4, sometimes a 6 in pants but the 4 fit just fine. This was only "fitted" in the bust. My only complaint is I barely got by with a strapless bra and don't have the chest to go braless. My bra slightly poked through the cutouts in the dress even though it was the smallest I could find. The band of fabric sat somewhat low so I had to pull the dress up throughout the night. A small price to pay for a fabulous dress!

Classy and Edgy
Dress fit perfectly. I was able to wear a black strapless bra with it no problem. I would have been able to get away without wearing one at all since it was snug enough around the bust. The regular length was perfect for me with 3" heels. It just brushed the floor, but I didn't trip at all. Over all I highly recommend this dress. Didn't want to send it back.

Ended up having to get a back up dress.
I didn't end up wearing this. It ran very small on top. The bottom and color were beautiful. If you have any kind of chest, size up.

Perfect for a sunset wedding in the city
Ran a little big in the hips and a little short. I had to purchase lower heeled shoes. Very flattering. Slimming. Heavy, high quality fabric. Highly recommend.

So gorgeous! So sophisticated!
I wore this to a barristers ball. It was so gorgeous and elegant. It fit perfectly and was so flattering. I hated taking it off at the end of the night! I am 5'4 and wore a size 2r. It was the perfect size and length as long as I was wearing 3 inch heels.

Hips were tighter than expected
This dress was gorgeous and seemingly perfect for my pear shape but unfortunately the fabric wasn't as stretchy as I had thought. I could get both sizes on but it bunched up and made the pockets pucker out around my wide hips. It was too late to order the next size up but I would've done it in a heart beat!

Great dress!
Loved this dress! I got so many compliments! The only thing is that I wished it had come in a 0P. The 0 fit me perfectly except for the length, and the 2P was a little big in the bust but perfect in the length. I went with the 2P so I wouldn't trip as I was already wearing 4" heels. Overall a great dress though!

Beautiful dress, ran small
I loved the color and the cut out detailing. Unfortunately, both sizes were small on me in the hip area and I was unable to wear :-( I could have gotten away with the 4R, if the dress didn't have pockets - but they puckered out and made the dress look ill fitting. I think if I ordered the 6, it would have been to large in the bust area.

Lots of compliments!
This dress is formal with the perfect amount of sexy. The lining of the dress was laying funny in the neck, making it pucker and not lay straight across. I used fashion tape to tape the lining down on the inside of the dress. It is tight in the hips, so the pockets didn't lay completely flat. But overall it is a beautiful dress and the petite was the perfect length for me to wear with heels.

Sexy and elegant
This is a lovely dress. Elegant for a formal affair and yet sexy and seductive. It's a great dress for anyone who wants to show a bit of skin, and yet maintain a sense of dignity and class. It felt great to wear. The plum color is tasteful and yet not black, so you don't look like all the other women. It's great that it has pockets as well.

Perfect dress for black tie wedding!
Wore this for a black tie fall wedding and it was perfect! The purple is vibrant, but doesn't come off as too bright, which I liked. I'm 5'9", 150lbs and usually am between a 6 and 8 for dresses. Went for the 6L this time because it fit my bust perfectly so that I didn't need any bra, fashion tape, etc. Fabric was thick enough for this too. Hips were just a smidgen tight, but this was a dress that looked better without being fitted because it's column style and the 8 would've been too baggy. Plus, it has pockets! As a taller person, the long was good for me with my 3" heels, it his at the right length. Got tons of compliments and it was easy to dance all night in, would definitely wear again!

This dress fit perfectly and everyone told me I looked stunning! I couldn't be happier.
When I first tried this dress on I was anxious about the fit, but it felt like it was made for me. I didn't wear any special undergarments (although I did have to skip a bra) and it looked fabulous. It was also surprisingly comfortable. I wore this dress to my company Christmas party. I didn't order a backup dress or size. It was delivered on time and returning is super easy (if you read all the instructions and return it to UPS). I will definitely be ordering another dress from RTR for an upcoming event this spring <3

Worn to a Mardi Gras ball. Renting was the best decision I've ever made.
Yes, this dress has POCKETS!!! Great coverage and perfect length. I wore a 3in heel. No bra was needed, but the coverage allows for a strapless bra. The dress had a tight fit in the torso to keep you covered with enough room to comfortably move around and stand up/sit down during the night.

I ordered the 4R and 6R and they both fit great! I chose the 6R for a little extra dancing room. The cutouts hit perfectly!

Beautiful color, so many compliments!
I wore this dress to my cousin's wedding and received so many compliments. The color and style of the dress are beautiful and the cutouts are very flattering. However, the 0R was way too long for me and because of that, I felt like the cutouts went a bit low on the side so it was a bit exposing at times. I think if there was a 0P size it would have fit perfectly but overall I was super happy with the dress.

If I were 3-4" shorter, I would probably buy this dress.
Rented with Unlimited for a wedding. The dress itself is bomb. The cut outs are of optimal size in flattering location and pretty sure the color (a bit more vivid slash aesthetically pleasing in person) would complement any skin tone under the sun. Figuratively. Well, literally too, but I'm sure it'd look just as dope under the moon. Plot twist. The length ended up being the deciding factor, so I ended up having to go with another dress which hung a few inches longer. RIP to the opportunity though because this dress was one of my favorites.

Beautiful color, classy with a bit of edge with the cutouts
Got 2 sizes and the 4L was a little too big in the bust, so I ended up wearing the 2L. It was a fantastic dress, and I got so many compliments! I wish it were a little bit longer since I like wearing 3.5-4" heels, and I had to wear a much smaller heel.

The best dress, ever.
Absolutely LOVED this dress! It does look purple in person - the lighting at the venue I was at makes the dress look darker. It's the best I've ever felt in a dress! They were out of the 0R for me, and sent the 0L instead. I'm 5'6" and it was too long with 3" heels, so the girl I spoke to working at the local RTR store advised me to use hem tape. This worked perfectly and caused zero issues. I think you may have to have a fairly long torso for the "band" at the top of the dress to hit you correctly (or maybe that was just because of the proportions of the 0L?)...but would 100% recommend this dress. Got tons of compliments and felt amazing!

This dress was beautiful. The band that goes around the chest isn't very wide so I would not suggest this dress if you have larger boobs. I wore a size 2L and am about a B (sometimes C) cup and I had some issues with under-boob showing.

Gorgeous color and fit
Dress runs a hair bigger. I'm a true 6R but it was a bit baggy so I went with the 4L. Heels worked great but was still a bit longer. I was worried the 4R might be too short for me. Either way, it fit great and I don't mind a little longer than short! Gorgeous deep plum color. Super comfortable! Modest enough but sexy. I wore as a wedding guest.

Classic yet sexy
The dress was gorgeous. The fabric was sturdy and didn't wrinkle, and the cutouts felt very sexy. The only drawback was the length--in hindsight, I would have bought some gem tape to keep it from dragging on the ground. (I also wore heels as tall as I dared!)

Beautiful, comfortable dress!
I usually waver between an 8 and a 10. The 8 wasn't in stock, but the 10 fit well! It made me look just a liiiittle wide from the front in the midsection area, but looked great from the side and back. I'm 5'7" and would say the dress was just about the perfect length with heels but if I was a bit shorter it would have been too long. I was slightly worried about not being able to wear a bra or even a sticky bra without it showing, but had no problems there in the end. Overall I would highly recommend this dress!

Pretty color.
I did not wear this dress because the size I ordered (4L) did not fit correctly. I have a larger chest (32DD) and the strap did not seem to look appropriate. I think this dress would be very pretty for a petite build (I'm more athletic).

The dress fits true to size and is very comfortable to move around in. The material is really nice so I did not need to wear spanks. I wore sticky cups so I had no issue with my bra showing. I wish I could have kept the dress! I wore flats and it was the perfect length. Size: 8L Height: 5' 10"

Holiday Party Purple
This dress runs true to size but I wore the larger option for comfort and because I felt it looked better on my hourglass figure. The cutouts add some drama and edge to a beautifully structured gown and the color is to die for!

This is a dream.
Give up the dream of wearing a bra it will show ( I tried everything). In the end, I went braless and never worried about a peakaboo bra ruining my look. This pic is blurry but this was the perfect dress for me. Edgy enough to be fun but totally classy! Loved wearing this.

This dress was cute on the hanger but a heavy material. It was thick and more appropriate for a more formal occasion.

Great color and love the cutouts!!
I am 5'5" 115-120lbs, size 34B and I wore a 2R for a wedding I had in early December. The fit was great! I really love the cutouts and the length was perfect with a 3" heel! The only issue I had was with my chest being a bit smaller, I had to make sure my sticky bra didn't show. I couldn't wear a staples bra and I would recommend a sticky bra! If I have the chance to rent this dress again I definitely will! The color is an eggplant and the fabric is fantastic! Like always, I'm very pleased with my rental. If you have any hesitations with renting this dress, don't! Rent it now! :)
