Going to an Air Force ball and wanted to wear a classy and sexy dress - it can be done!
Beautiful color, it runs large, but the top part billowed out- so I didn't wear it to the event and wore my backup dress. I could have gone two sizes down for the top and one size down for the bottom - need to have a large chest, or small enough (not me) to where it doesn't matter. The length was great, could have worn four inch heels and been fine with the regular length. Just too bad it didn't fit right.

I didn't wear the dress.
It was to short, I am 5'8 and the dress came to my ankles when I put on heels.

Amazing quality, amazing fit!
wore this dress to perform at a gala for a theater company, and I felt like the guest of honor! The fabric is not too thick, but not see-through at all. This dress screams high quality. Perfect if you are at all broad-backed and have a hard time zipping up in the back. This stops right at the top of the arch of your back. I have smaller shoulders, so I had to safety-pin the closure around the neck to be a little tighter for me. The very low v-neck manages to still be tasteful. All I did was tape the dress and wear nipple petals to ensure I wouldn't experience a wardrobe malfunction while performing. I paired it with gold jewelry and shoes. Not too long, either! Would definitely rent again!

Mardi Gras ball.
I ended up wearing another dress because my fiancé liked it better, but this one was my favorite. The blue color is gorgeous and so is the neckline. Very low cut - it's sexy but still tasteful. You can't wear a full bra with this one - your back will show. Very forgiving and classically beautiful. You'll fee like a princess.

Love this dress. Runs large/long
This dress was beautiful and I received many compliments all night long! I'm 5'9" and the dress was long on me. For me, not a complaint. Nothing is ever too long on me. But for someone shorter, they would have drowned in this dress! I also fluctuate between a 0-2 depending on the designer, and the 0 was too large on me. The dress hangs nicely, so the dress being too large was no big deal. I would recommend this dress for a formal affair!

great fit, classy and sexy
Great fit! I am smaller busted so I didn't have to use fashion tape, the girls were secure. I do have a shorter torso so I ended up using safety pins to shorten the halter strap. I was about 3 months pregnant when I wore it, but the drape hid all signs of the tiny bump. I didn't do much dancing at this wedding (bad DJ!) but did notice there is not a lot of leg moving room at the bottom of the dress, only negative on a great dress!

Very flattering and comfortable.
I really liked this dress but I could have gone a size smaller for the bust area. I pinned the top to reduce the low 'V' and I used fashion tape to ensure the sides didn't expose too much (mostly while dancing). The long length worked out well with heels, which I usually do not wear given my height.

Loved this dress. Wore it for a sorority formal and got an astounding amount of compliments. The dress runs 1-2 sizes large so order down. The bust of the dress was a little big for me, but nothing a few safety pins and fashion tape couldn't fix. Definitely recommend!

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

Classy to the utmost with just the right amount of Sexy. Definitely not Boring.
This dress was perfect! I wore it to my senior prom. I was nervous that it would be too short since with heels I am 6' but the regular fit what I wanted perfectly! I started the night with sticky boobs and tape holding the top on but by an hour in I realized that was excessive and had cut down too just a little tape on the sides. Truly every woman will feel confident and beautiful in this dress! My bosom certainly in nothing to write home about but in this dress I felt like the perfect blend of Blake Lively and Kate Upton with a little SJP fashion savvy thrown in.

Beautiful dress and extremely comfortable!
This dress runs fairly large. I normally wear a 2R, but for this dress even the 0R was slightly big (probably because of the open back). The dress is absolutely beautiful and very comfortable and light. I know many people mention having to wear fabric tape, but I did not find it necessary being smaller-chested. The dress is extremely flattering, and is the perfect combination of elegant and classy, while also being sexy! I was so sad to return it- I would absolutely rent it again!

Wore the dress to a wedding taking place in a castle. The dress was perfect.
I am 5'9" and chose 6L but had to hold the dress up often. Would've been fine with 6R.

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?

Gorgeous!
Loved wearing this dress- comfortable, elegant and a little sexy! It definitely ran small- I usually wear a size 2 but wore the 0R and needed fashion tape for the bust area (I'm a 34A bra size and 125 5'5"). I got so many compliments, and was told it was their favorite bridesmaid dress of the bunch! Gorgeous dress and beautiful fit, just make sure you use fashion tape if your bust area is lacking a little like mine!

I wore this to a wedding for a very dear friend and my kids were the flower girl and ring bearer.
I wore the size 8 which I surprised fit me perfectly in the middle. The halter top was a little big though as I do not have a very big chest. Not only did I have to get creative with a stick-on backless strapless bra, but I had to pin the extra fabric together at the next so it stayed up okay. Otherwise, I felt gorgeous in this!

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!

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.

Classically Beautiful!
This dress is an excellent rent! Definitely size down... I'm generally a size 4 across the board, but because of all the previous reviews, rented the 2Rwith 4R as a back-up (was going to go 0 as a back-up but it wasn't available). Unfortunately the 2 wasn't available to ship. I made the 4 work with fashion tape to keep it from gaping at sides and shorten the halter a little but I have a short torso so that may have been necessary with the 2 also. The length was pretty much perfect with 3" heels, anything higher may have been too much. This was rented for a wedding that my boyfriend was in but had little idea of how formal or not it was going to be. I styled my hair up with some simple jewelry and received a ton of compliments. It would have been acceptable for a black tie but was understated enough for something more casual. Overall a beautiful dress!

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.

Everything
The dress fit fine. I followed the advice from the previous reviewers about the dress running big so I order smaller sizes. The plunge line in the dress is DEEP, not a bad thing; just be prepared. My boobs didn't fall out or anything but by the end of the night I pinned it with a safety pin because I was tired of worrying about becoming a stripper on accident. lol Simple, cute and sexy 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!

A great bridesmaid dress! The halter is very classic.
This dress fits very well for someone like me with a very small natural waist and long torso. It does run a bit large so I actually would've preferred the 0L, which wasn't available for the weekend I needed it - I had to use safety pins to keep the back cinched as tight as I would like, which was a bit frustrating. But overall it's a great color and silhouette! Would definitely rent again in the 0L.

I wanted to love this dress, but the top was so loose!
I love the cut and color of this dress on the model. However, the halter neck was made for a very long torso, and no amount of fashion tape could keep the dress from billowing open at the bust. Otherwise the dress was classic and elegant. I really wanted to love this dress, but didn't end up wearing it for fear of flashing wedding guests.

This dress was great! A little heavy for a summer wedding due to fabric but great to move around in.
I would suggest going a size down for those with a smaller chest. My dress was big on me and seemed to stretch as the night went on so it got hard to deal with on the dance floor :)

Great dress for a winter wedding or formal event. Don't forget sticky tape!
I rented this for my friend's February wedding and loved it--it was simple and elegant, and the sassy back and plunging neck definitely spiced it up. I'm 6'1", so my biggest concern before the dress arrived was if it would be long enough! The length was just about perfect, maybe a teensy bit short but not noticeably so. You DEFINITELY need sticky tape to keep the dress against your bust in the front, and I also wore the Braza Strapless Adhesive bra for some support. I also paired it with a cardigan and muffler for the Catholic mass so I wasn't too revealing. The halter felt secure through a night of dancing. Overall, I really like this dress!

Beautiful dress, runs large
This is a beautiful formal option that really highlights the shoulders - it does run a little large, which made for a challenging fit in the top of the dress. The 6 was the right length in the torso but loose in the waist, whereas the 4 was a better fit in the waist but too short in the torso. I did not end up wearing this dress.

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.

Heavy Fabric - gorgeous style
I rented this in the 8R and 10R, unfortunately, the 10 became unavailable at the last minute (RTR came to the rescue and sent me my dream dress). I tried this dress on in the 8 and it's gorgeous! A few comments, it is short, I would not have been able to wear heels at all with the gown (5'9). The fabric is very heavy, I do not recommend for any summer weather as it would have been far too hot! On the plus side, I would not have worn a bra of any kind with the dress (36D), just some tape on the sides. Will definitely rent this dress in a 10 for a Fall, Winter or early Spring event!

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!

Loved this dress!
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!
