Beautiful dress! Super sexy and comfy

The halter straps were a little too long for my torso. I ended up using 4 safety pins to make it shorter and that works.

The back was fabulous! This dress definitely runs a bit big!

This dress runs big. iF you don't have a big chest, you will most likely need to pin the piece that goes around your neck. That's what I had to do! Otherwise it's light weight and comfy! I received a lot of compliments !!

Got so many compliments!

This is a GREAT dress but it runs large on top. Nothing a little double-sided tape can't fix but definitely order your size and a size down. I am fairly tall so I wore the 8L with 3 inch heels and it was perfect. This dress is a winner!

Way too big

I rented both the 2R and the 0R - the 0 was hanging off of me so I didn't even try the 2. I really wanted this dress to work and was so bummed but because of the open back, pinning a substantial amount of fabric to make it fir wouldn't have been possible. If you're petite, I'd be cautious. (I'm 5'4", 125 lbs and 32B)

Sexy but Classy!!!!

There were no reviews when I ordered this dress I wish I would have gotten a size smaller maybe 2. A few safety pins on the halter and lots of fashion tape and the dress was awesome!

So fun

The neck line on this is definitely low! I ended up having to make the neck a little tighter so that the girls weren't showing but this dress was so comfortable and perfect for the evening!! The only problem was that it was only long enough for kitten heels but still beautiful!!

Simple and sexy

I loved this dress. I wore it to a black tie wedding and I thought it was simple but glamorous and just the right amount of sexy. I'm 5'5" and the length of the 2R was just right with small 2 inch heels, but I could see how length could be an issue for some depending on their size/height. I'm smaller up top and had to pin the halter because it hung too loose when it was just buttoned.

The dress was gorgeous and I received a lot of compliments. Would rent again!

The dress definitely runs large. I normally wear a 4 but wore the 2R. I could have worn a 0R but it wasn't available. The dress is great and worth renting! The top was large but I improvised with fashion tape and it worked like a charm!

Stylists made renting so easy even when a snow storm caused delays!

The stylists at RTR worked with me to re-rent this dress after my event was rescheduled for the next weekend. They were so kind and made sure I got exactly what I needed, and the dress was stunning! So many compliments! I had to wear the 14R because the 12 was unavailable and it was a tad too big for my short torso, even though I am a D-cup, but it wasn't anything a little double sided tape and some pins on the halter neck couldn't fix. Length was perfect for my 3 inch heels, fabric was light and flows, and definitely a good choice for curvy girls too.

Beautiful dress!

Runs very small - I'm usually a size 6 and the 0 would have fit best. The long was a little too long so had to be pinned up, but still worked. Loved the color and look!

Great timing, great dress!

This dress is great. I wore it to a military event and it was perfect! Classy with a bit of an edge. I have a smaller chest and didn't even need fashion tape for the dress. The halter became a little loose by the end of the night but not an issue at all! I'm about 5'7 and wore flats and the dress length was perfect! If you're planning on heels though and you're taller, I would possibly recommend the long! For sure would recommend and it's even prettier in person!

Old Hollywood Glam

I wore this for barrister's ball ("law prom") and it was absolutely perfect. I would rent this again -- people kept saying that my dress was "old Hollywood." You really can't wear a bra with it - wore this with "bring it up breast shapers" which worked great. Also make sure you have fashion tape -- without it is a recipe for wardrobe malfunction

Rent the Runways was so convenient and easy to use.

This dress was beautiful and perfect for my event. I had to wear an 8 long because there weren't many size choices available but tall heels and a few pins in the halter top made it work!

A bit large

I'm a 36DD, the overall fit was perfect in the body and the back is beautiful but the bust region is a bit too revealing. Would have pulled it up around the halter but it wouldve make the dress too short

Beautiful drape to the dress!

I've rented this dress for two fall winter/weddings... And it has been fabulous both times. Really nice material, drape, etc. It runs large- particularly in the bust. I had to pin it a little bit... But didn't deter me from renting the dress a second time :)

I got so many compliments on this dress and so many people asking me to borrow it

This dress ran large on me. I ordered a 12r and 10l I probably could have fit into an 8 regular best. I'm often a size 10 or 12 however I have a very small bust which is what made this dress run large on me. The halter is a little long for a smaller chest. I undid the buttons and pinned it to fit my body perfectly. I had to wear the 12 even tho the 10 fit better because the long length was too long and I needed the regular length at 5'7 with a 2.5 inch heel. I did not wear a bra with the dress which was fine for me.

Dress was perfect- super classy and sexy!

It ran a little big- ended up using my backup size which was a size down. No bra needed, but I did need to use tape to make sure the top didn't shift during the evening. Lots of compliments and it was also pretty comfy!

I love led this dress it's very classy yet slightly sexy since it has a low back.

I'd suggest going a size down & be warned you will have to wear tape or a sticky bra. Also, I ordered long and I'm 5'9'' it was extremely long even with heels.

Beautiful gown!

I typically wear an 8 and had to order the 4 because it was the only thing available! The dress fit well on top, but the slip layer through the skirt was a little snug. I thought the top layer of the skirt still laid just fine though. You'll definitely need fashion tape just to keep everything in place from standing up to sitting down. I'm 5'9" and the 4 R fell about 1 inch above the ground without heels. I wore a kitten heel and the dress hit right at the ankles showing off my shoes :)

Absolutely stunning

I loved this dress! The back was so gorgeous, and I loved the deep V in the front. It was sexy without being over the top. I was worried about not being able to wear a bra (even a nubra doesn't work), but the way the dress falls in the front you don't need one at all. However, fashion tape is a must!! The length was perfect. At 5'9 I struggle with maxis, but this one I could even wear heels with. The size does run large, order a size down! I am a size 6 across the board and the 4 fit perfectly.

Ran 2 sizes small so I normally wear a 12 but ordered an 8 and it was perfect!

It does run big but going down two sizes helped a lot! I'm only 5'2" and I was wearing 4" heels and it was perfect. I would rent this dress again for all the complements I got in it. Elegant with a little touch of sexy

.

This dress fit me at 33 weeks pregnant ! Granted I ordered the biggest size but it's definitely bump friendly . I had to tie the neck halter area at the top . I could have fit the 12 but it was way too short. Overall very flattering for a pregnant lady and I was nice and cool outside in the heat wave.

Hi - I am wearing this dress in two weeks. I will be 24 weeks pregnant. I ordered a 12 (largest they had available). I am wondering how the waist fits? Im not large on top but is the zipper going to be a problem? is there stretch under the dress?

Elegant and classy

So I fell in love with this dress. I was super worried I ordered it too small but I trusted the reviews and ordered two sizes down and thank goodness I did! The dress is long I'm 5'6 and didn't want to wear heals and had to pin it and it was still like an inch too long. If your wanting to wear heals it would have been fine. Loved every moment in it. Super comfortable and elegant!

This dress ran a little large so I would recommend ordering a size down along with some fashion tape! I received a ton of compliments and felt great the whole night - couldn't ask for a better experience!

Gorgeous dress

I would typically expect to wear a 4, but the 2 was a perfect fit, so I think it runs a little large. Long enough that it stretched to the ground when I was in 3 inch heels (I'm 5'6"). This dress was so easy to put on and comfortable, too. It was also generally easy to wear, although be prepared to feel a little exposed, and you have to maintain good posture to avoid inadvertently flashing anyone (or wear fashion tape)! Beautiful and simultaneously classy and sexy dress - I highly recommend it.

I usually wear a 4 but wore a 0 in this. I have a small upper body so didn't need fashion tape, but anyone more endowed definitely would! Loved this dress.

Classic + sexy formal dress!

One of my favorite rentals! Definitely order 1-2 sizes down. I usually wear a 6 and ordered both the 2 & the 4. Both fit but went with the 4 for a little more breathing room! You will definitely need double sided tape to keep from having a wardrobe malfunction ;) beautiful dress for a formal wedding!

I loved how simple and classy this dress was while also showing a hint of skin in the front and back! The 2 fit me perfectly and with 4 in. heels the long just hit the floor. I would definitely rent this dress again.

Gorgeous formal dress

This dress was absolutely perfect for the formal wedding I attended. It was classy, elegant and easy fitting. I'm glad I read everyone's reviews because I only rented 1 and 2 sizes smaller than needed. The 6R fit perfectly and I'm usually a 10 in designer dresses. It was an inch and a half too long (with me wearing heels but I'm short) so I used fashion tape to hem it up. You will want fashion tape for the bust area as well since bending over could be an issue. Overall I would rent this dress again!

Sorry it's not the best pic, but I really liked the dress. I rented a size 4 and a 6, the 6 felt better around the waist, but wore the 4 for extra support on top. It was a beautiful dress and I loved wearing it!

Sexy yet extremely elegant dress

This was by far my most favorite dress I've rented from RTR. I originally ordered the 2L and 4R, but I never got to try the 2L on since it became unavailable. In any case, the length of the 4R was perfect with my 4in heels. It was a little big on top but once I fashion taped the dress in place, it was perfect. Very comfortable material and easy to dance in! Got compliments all night long. Would definitely recommend this dress!

So glam

This dress is great, I usually wear a 4 and the zero fit great. I did use tape and pinned the neck line. The gown is beautiful and I received lots of compliments. The dress is also long, I am 5'8'm and wore 3 inch heels and I was ok.

Show stopper!

This dress was perfect for the fall wedding I attended. Fashion tape is a definite must with this dress. I felt very classy and elegant and got many compliments throughout the night. I usually wear a 2 for RTR but the 2 was damaged so I only received the 4, which still fit but needed a little extra tape to keep the sides down. Overall a great rental and I would highly recommend this dress!
