This dress was perfect for my husbands semi-formal Christmas party for work.

Fit was one 100 percent true to size. Length was perfect as well and I am 5'4" and can never find a gown for my height.

Felt like a femme fatale!

Wore this to my company's 007 themed holiday party. Wanted to channel Vesper and this dress fit the bill. It was only a couple of centimeters too long, but wasn't much trouble. I think my heels are 4".

Elegant and Sexy

This dress is fabulous. I am 5'9", 125 lbs with a full C-cup. I wore the OL with flats ( it would not have been long enough for heals). I got so many compliments and felt great. I also bought the bra recommended by RTR and was glad I did - if you have a full chest this is a must. It was in great shape and not wrinkled at all when I took it out of the box.

I rented this dress for a world premiere of an opera. It was elegant and fit perfectly.

This dress clings to the body in all the right places. It is ideal for women with a small chest, like myself. I would suggest double sided body tape to secure the plunging neckline. It is comfortable, elegant, and sexy at the same time.

Lots of compliments on this dress.

Fit seemed true to size. Very low cut but stayed in place all night with a few pieces of double stick tape. Beautiful color, simple but makes a statement. The cap sleeves are a nice touch but prevented me from being able to raise my arms at all.

Sexy yet elegant

I ordered this as my back up dress but when I tried it on (because it was on top in the box) I knew it was the dress. I'm not normally a 14 but it fell so perfectly. It's the right amount of class and sexiness and I got compliments all night. If the budget allowed I'd buy this dress!

Great classy but sexy dress that's not a LBD!

The lining wasn't as thick as I would prefer but it was easy to smooth out with wearing a tight slip. Great for fuller chests, just use that double sided tape!

Little tight in the chest. Couldn't lift my arms but I never had an issue with the low cut. Also wore flats so dress length was perfect!

I received many compliments on this dress. Loved the blue color and deep neckline.

The material could have been a bit better quality since it was thin and you can't wear spandx because of the lace cut out; but the style fit perfectly. It flattered my pear shape and hid all of my flaws, especially since I gained a few lbs. I am just about 5'6 and the regular was a good length, but any shorter would have been too short for my modest 2in heels. The neckline has a very deep V but was completely manageable with my chest size. I used double sided tape to be safe. I wore this to a wedding, and for the ceremony I just tied a black shawl around my shoulders and covered my chest to make more conservative. Everyone loved the color and it was completely comfortable to move and dance in.

This dress is so elegant and flattering.

I loved this dress. I originally thought a 4 might be best since I run between that and a 2. Wound up wearing the 2 which was better as my top half is the smaller half and it was a good snug fit with plenty of room to move at the bottom. This dress was totally elegant but also appropriate for a more casual fall wedding. At my height (5'6") I could only wear mid size heels otherwise it would've been too short but I wound up wearing my flats most of the night anyways and it wasn't too long. Would definitely recommend double sided tape for the top. I didn't wear it and as my chest is so small when I sat down there was definitely some risk of "underboob" showing. All in all this dress was fabulous. Would definitely recommend it.

Not flattering if over 5'9

I think this dress was made for a shorter person, the waist hit me as a bad spot and overall wasn't very flattering. There's also a bizarre rouching detail on the back that hit my butt at the worst spot. Not my fave but it was my backup and I ended up loving my first choice

Many Many complements all night long!!

This dress is amazing! It's very comfortable allowed for a lot of movement and was easy to dance in. I wore 3 inch heels and it fell perfectly. The chest area required a lot of fashion tape to prevent any slips. I wore this to a gay Mardi Gras bal, and this dress even had all of the gay men complementing!! I got many complements from women, men, gay and straight. The cap sleeves were slightly restricting but nothing that prevented me from doing anything. There are no cons about this dress. I wish I could buy it!!

Beautiful and flattering dress! Rent!

I got tons of compliments on this dress! Super flattering with the deep V, lace cutouts and flowing looser bottom. I have broad shoulders so the cap sleeves didn't allow for arms up but that's ok! Beautiful color. I wore the 4L with 4 inch heels (I'm 5'8.5") and it was pretty good. No tripping, etc!

I felt gorgeous

I run right between a 6 and and 8 and this was very true to that. The 6L fix, but with some fabric bunching, but the 8L laid perfectly and wasn't too loose with the addition of a little fashion tape. The length was perfect and I was able to wear a 2" heel, which I was a little nervous about at 5'9". I agree with some other reviewers that the cap sleeves are a bit restrictive, but I didn't find that it bothered me much. Overall, I fell absolutely in love with this dress. It's beautiful, it made me feel beautiful, and I got so many compliments on it. I wish I didn't have to send it back!

Great staff who send needed sizes quickly

It runs a bit big. I had to wear a 2P, and it was still a little large in the bust and hip area. I am not a busty lady, and could not wear a bra at all due to the deep V cut, not even stickies because they would show through the lace. Sitting kinda made this a challenge as i had to make sure i wasnt slipping out. Two of the dresses of the three that I received had small holes in the lace but they were barely noticeable. Overall, very sexy dress that my husband loved and I received multiple compliments on it.

I felt stunning in this gown! I received so many compliments!

This dress was very flattering. The 4R fit perfectly. I loved the deep V neckline and lace cutouts! However, these made it impossible to wear a bra. But a little fashion tape prevented any slippage. The length was perfect with 3in heels. Tons of compliments the entire evening! I felt sexy yet elegant. I definitely recommend this dress!

Perfect for the occasion

The fit was true to size in my opinion. I wore a u shape plunge bra without it showing at all. The 2p was right at my feet in four inch heels. Definitely sexy without being over the top.

This dress was sexy and classic!

This dress was amazing!! I got compliments all night long!! It was a little tighter around my butt but overall a great fit. It had a very slimming effect. I wore petals instead of a bra but still needed to tape the dress down so that I would not flash anybody. I would recommend ordering your normal size and a size up. Would absolutely wear this again!!

Sexy and elegant!

The cut and color of this dress was stunning! I felt like a movie star. I did find that I had to make sure I stood and sat up straight all night to keep the plunging neckline from exposing too much. And I could have gone with a 4L since I was in heels. But overall this dress was a knockout!

This dress made me feel like the best dressed woman there. My husband could not take his eyes off me

It fit like a gloved for me. True to size. I recently had foot surgery so I couldn't wear heels but the petite size was perfect. I was worried about the girls being on full display, but once I had the dress on there was nothing to worry about. I'm a 34D and they stayed inside all night.

The dress is ultra sexy ! The look on my Husbands face was priceless .

This dress was my third try and it should have been my first choice ! It is true to size . The neck line is pretty revealing and if this is something that concerns you then this is not the dress for you . If you are larger chest , you will feel like you will pop out, but you will not ! You just have to own it . I received so many compliments . I wore this to a charity event , but would not wear it to a work function. If you want to feel like a million bucks and bring sexy back......this is the dress . Rent the runway is always great to work with . Always order a few days before your event to give you time to make adjustments .

Loved this dress! Got so many compliments!

The pictures don't give this dress justice! It's beautiful and elegant. Wore it for a ball and felt like a million bucks. The fit was great! It did feel a little big on the sides but not anything anyone would notice or see. I personally just wish it was tighter in the sides for my figure. I wore a 0P which was perfect for my size and height. Had no issues with the length as I wore 2 and 1/2 inch heels. I also didn't wear a bra as the lace cutouts prevented that but I felt comfortable without it. A the lining is thick and I used fashion tape to keep the dress in place. Loved everything about this dress! I would highly recommend it for any special occasion.

Beautifully made dress. Was first choice but couldn't wear it. Should be offered in petite

I have a short torso so I experienced bunching and since I'm a bit curvy on the bottom wasn't able to pull down over my hips. The length is a bit long as well. If this dress came in petite I think it might have been a better experience. If you're busty you definitely need a deep plunging bra.

Ran slightly large. Normally wear a 4 but the 2 fit well. Even with the deep plunge the dress stayed in place well without any Hollywood tape, and didn't reveal anything I didn't want it to

Great service, disappointing product

This was my first time using RTR. While the service was wonderful, I was not happy with the gown. I had about 10 dresses saved in my favorites and when I was ready to order not a single one of them was available for the date I needed. The dress I wore was one of very few options I had left. The gown fit beautifully but definitely ran small. The fabric was very thin and the deep neckline was an issue even with fashion tape. Also, the gown does not reach the floor so be ready to show off whichever shows you decide on! The only compliment I received all night was from my husband, which was disappointing after reading other's rave reviews. I would use RTR again, but I have to admit I'm a little hesitant.

Bold and unique dress.

This dress was very different and fun to wear for a change. I'm 5'8" and found that the 8L fit like a normal length dress with my 3" heels so definitely get the long if you've got heels. I'd recommend this dress for formal events, but not great for dancing. The cap sleeves are pretty restrictive and the plunging neckline doesn't allow for free movement. Overall it was a fun dress to try, although don't think I'd wear again. I wore sticky bra cups and used fashion tape which overall kept things in place.

Beautiful gown!

This dress was gorgeous and I received compliments all night. Needed some double sided tape for the top because when you sit it gapes open a little. It stayed mostly in place all night though. LOVED the side lace cutouts. Very elegant with a touch of sexy. Fits pretty true to size, but if you're tall and want to wear heels, definitely get the long!!! I had the regular and it barely skimmed the ground with flats on. Overall, I really liked this dress.

Stunning dress with many compliments

This dress was very simple but still very beautiful. I didn't realize how revealing it would be chest wise when I ordered it, but with wearing petals I never felt like I was at risk for indecent exposure. My biggest complaint was not being able to wear spanx with this dress (because they either show through the cutout or the bottom of the deep v) but if you can look past that it was very comfortable for dancing the nigh away! Also at 5'11" the long came to the top of my ankles, so I didn't need to/couldn't wear heels.

Compliments all night

My body has changed a bit since I had a baby. I am 5'3" 139lb wearing 4" heels and 34D --- after I taped up my boobs a la Kim Kardashian - WOW! I recommend this dress, it's fairly forgiving in the waistline too so no need to stress about having a perfectly flat tummy. Loved it.

A little tape goes a long way!

As an ample breasted gal, I was a little nervous about the plunging neckline on this dress. When I first tried it on, I felt like the girls were a little "in your face" and not in a good way. Busty babes, do not fret - a little sport or surgical tape à la Kim K will change your world. Seriously, there are youtube videos on breast taping and I'm not ashamed to say I watched more than one. Once you are taped up like a Kardashian and add a little fashion tape to the edges, there is no fear of any wardrobe malfunctions. The dress drapes very nicely and the fabric is pretty forgiving and doesn't hug any less than smooth areas. The cap sleeves also balance out the plunging neckline, giving the dress a very elegant feel with a dash of sexiness. My only complaint is the length. A tall was not available and the regular length was a bit short for me.

Beautiful dress...very elegant and glamorous!

This dress was perfect for a formal ball that I attended for my husband's work. I was worried about the plunging neckline but everything stayed in place with a little bit of tape. The dress is very comfortable! I'm glad I went with 4R vs 4L...I'm 5'7" but the length of the 4R was perfect. I absolutely LOVED this dress and would highly recommend it!

Beautiful gown in poor condition

This was ordered for a 2nd choice. The dress fit like a glove and didn't require a large heal. I would have worn this dress over my first choice but the dress was in poor condition. The mesh had holes in it and the zipper was coming unstitched midway up the back. Had the dress been in better shape I would have for sure worn it.
