Perfect fit! Lovely dress!

Wore this dress to the Symphony gala opening- was a perfect fit and I got many compliments. The top fits so well that I didn't even need to wear a bra. Great dress and beautiful color!

Beautiful Formal Dress

This dress was great! I wore without a bra and felt comfortable and supported. The cutouts are sexy but classy and the pockets are also a fantastic plus. Dress barely touched the ground with 3" heels (I'm 5'5"). I got compliments on it all night and would definitely recommend it!

Comfortable and elegant

This dress has pockets and they stuck out a bit in the smaller size. I sized up and had no issues with the pockets. It's a beautiful dress and I received a lot of compliments. The color looks good on anyone!

Black Tie Perfection

I normally feel too self conscious to wear cutouts, but the placement on this dress was absolutely perfect. Received a ton of compliments and felt gorgeous!! Highly recommend for a black tie event where you can wear a dress with a little more edge.

Great dress but pockets made it look weird.

Loved the color and it fit true to size. The pockets weren't sitting flat though so it created a weird look from the front. The side view was awesome though! I ended up just going with another dress. Would've had to wear pasties because even my strapless bra showed a little.

Gorgeous!

Rented this for a fall wedding and it was perfect! The fabric is heavy and nice but not hot. The cut outs were a sexy detail without showing too much. A lot of dresses are tight on my backside, but this dress fell perfectly. Got compliments all night! Could not wear a bra though, it would have shown near the armpits where the dress cuts in.

Great dress!

This dress was perfect for the wedding I was in! I was a little nervous since the wedding was Saturday and I received the dress at 5 pm Friday, but luckily it fit perfectly. I have a smaller chest (32B) and think that this style top fit nicely because of that. Got tons of compliments on the dress. I would definitely recommend!

Two occasions for my Cinderella moment!

I ordered a 4L for my height, and it ended up being much longer and much roomier in the bust than I had hoped. Had the shoulders tacked loosely in order to tighten it all up and it fit beautifully. It was comfortable once it was adjusted, I didn't have to wear a bra, and didn't have to accessorize more than a pair of earrings and a bracelet! I received a ton of compliments when I wore it to a Symphony event with my dad and also to a Black Tie Optional Gala. Next time I'll be sure to order a 4R backup just in case, but definitely recommend this dress and give it an enthusiastic 4 stars!

Not a good fit

Side cut outs were a bit awkward and not meant for a cup size bigger than a B cup. The front of the dress that covers the chest was too narrow, so there was a bit too much side boob. Felt like a purple sack. Big disappointment. Couldn't wear it.

Cut out gown

This dress fit me perfectly, except it was a little loose around the bust area which made me a little nervous since I couldn't wear a bra and I kinda felt like I'd spill out! (Which, I think if you're a little bustier, you should stray away from this dress). I called RTR to see what they could do because when I first got the dress, I wasn't sure if I liked the way I looked. They were extremely helpful and offered to send me another dress off of my event "hearts" page. But I ultimately opted to just wear this one. My husband thought it looked wonderful. And it has pockets! I was getting compliments all night and I felt wonderful. I wore three inch heels and my toe just barely peeked out. It was easy to get around in and I didn't trip once. I love RTR!

Classic but stylish dress!

I loved this dress. It for true to size. It was a little long (but I'm short- 5'3") but I wore it with heels and it was the perfect length. It was a little tricky trying to select a bra that didn't show. I recommend sticky cups!

Perfect mix of classy and edgy!

I wore this dress to a black tie Christmas party and it was absolutely perfect. The color is amazing (especially for fall/winter) and the cutouts are sassy without being too revealing. Fabric is durable but not too thick or hot. My only issue was that the 2R was a little long on me, but I was able to fix it with some temporary hem tape which was easily removed after the event. My first RTR experience and I would definitely rent again!!

Did not meet expectations

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

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.

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!

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!)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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!

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!

Got loads of compliments on this beautiful and tasteful dress!

I rented this dress for prom and it was an amazing dress. I fit perfectly into the 4R with no tape or adjustments needed. This dress hit the floor without heels, so if high heels are in your outfit plan the length might be a bit weird. Also, the picture makes the dress appears a darker purple than it actually is. I have never had a dress be so flattering, especially from the side. POCKETS are a huge plus! Would definitely recommend for prom or formal events.

Lots of compliments!

I loved this unique and sexy yet understated dress. I felt chic, comfortable, and classy. Plus it has pockets! I have a small bust and was able to go braless. The length was perfect for me at 5'6" with mid-height heels. I went with the 2R which was great (not too loose but not snug) on my 120lbs frame. Hate to send it back!

Love the color and fit!

I wore this for a January wedding in south Florida. The plum was a beautiful color, and the slits in the side gave the simple dress that extra little oomf! Slightly long - had to wear 3-4 inch wedges.
