Perfect for work party!
This dress was fitted exactly where it needed to be. Loved that the skirt bounced. I felt pretty and professional in it.

This dress was awesome! The right mix of sexy&cute! Perf for an outside wedding.
I usually wear an 8 or 10 but normally a 10 dress. The 8 fit perfectly!

Great fit, hid my bloated stomach before I even ate at the wedding.
Fits true to size, very comfortable. I'm tall and I didn't feel like I had to pull this down at all. The sides have tiny see through lines. Not noticeable at all. Would rent again.

Classic with subtle sexiness!
I wore this to a bridal shower and received so many compliments! The little cutouts on the side gave it a little something extra, loved them. I wore a nude bra and nude panties and I don't think anyone could tell. I could have went with a 0 but the 2 worked just fine. The fabric is a little heavy and I noticed things stuck to it easily. But those are very minor complaints for such a fabulous dress. Made me feel very confident, gives a great shape!

Flattering and classy with some flare
I have a high waist so it didn't sit 100% where I wanted it to on my hips, but overall the dress was very flattering! I usually wear an 8, but the 6 was perfect. The cut outs are see through, but you can easily get away with no bra and nude underwear. The fabric was thicker and very high quality (not like some of the other dresses I've rented). Wish I could have kept it as a navy alternative to the LBD!

Comfortable, Beautiful, Perfect.
The dress is definitely true to size, but the stretchy fabric also allows the dress to fit if it isn't your usual size. I loved the cutouts down the sides and the trim on the end of the dress; it was super comfortable and again because of the flexible fabric i never felt constricted. It was also a thicker, nicer material but i was never overheated in it. I loved the color and the pleats that start at the waist. This dress really worked for my body type and I feel like it could work for virtually any body type as well. The length was also a perfect length for a homecoming dress. It wasn't too short that i had to wear spandex under neath, but it wasn't too long that it was unattractive. It's a great price for this dress and i would definitely rent this dress again.

Conservative with a flirty edge!
I LOVED this dress! It does run a little large, so I would suggest to size down. I'm usually a 6, but ordered a 4 as back up, after reading reviews. The 4 fit like a glove! It's conservative, but very flattering, and the cutouts give it a sexy little edge. The material feels a little thicker, but it certainly isn't heavy. You can really see and feel the quality in this dress. I also rented the Slate and Willow Pastel Bouquet necklace and I think it completed the look quite nicely! The cutouts are not lined and they go all the way to the hem on the skirt (front and back). I wore a nude bra and nude undies and I think it was fine. I think the way that the skirt folds over itself hides your bottom, but I probably would have worn a nude colored slip if I had one!

Comfortable, easy to wear dress!
The material of the dress is pretty heavy. It keeps its shape well. I normally can't get away with not wearing a bra and had no trouble dancing the night away braless in this dress (major perk as far as I'm concerned) The original dress had a stitch missing that held the cutout in place but RTR overnighted a new one and I was good to go! Would 100% rent this again for another event.

Tons of compliments on this simple/comfortable style!
The 6 for perfect and I'm normally an 8. Fabric is heavy but lays nice. Must have nude bra & panties Bc your skin shows all the way down. It was perfect for a wedding shower.

Not a show stopper but Adorable dress
Not a show stopper but an adorable dress. I received loads of compliments. Will flatter any shape. Nice stretchy material. The zigzags do not have lining underneath but no one noticed; they thought there was a lining underneath. I wore this to work and it looked very classy and expensive.

I wore it to a school ceremony, and this dress was perfect. It is a heavier material, but it is stretchy so it fits comfortably everywhere. There is nothing bad to say about this dress.

So many compliments
This dress fit like a glove. Very true to size, a bit heavier material so it was perfect for our March Gala. I loved the peekaboo sides and wore a nude bra with it. Another win in my book by RTR

Simple detail
This dress was so comfortable and great for a wedding and lots of dancing. The fit is slimming and the little open detail going down the side is SO cute! I wore a nude bra and thin nude undies and you couldn't notice a bit. Loved this dress.

Wedding Rehearsal Outfit
Such a comfortable dress! I ordered the 4 and the 2 (normally wear a 4) and ended up wearing the 2. The 4 fit and when I tried it on to ask my friends opinion they said they couldn't tell a difference, but the 2 just felt better. I wore nude underwear and bra and you couldn't tell! I felt like this dress had just the right amount of sexiness but still felt very classy.

Comfy and perfect fit
I wore this to my best friend's bachelorette party. This dress had just enough stretch to fit comfortably. The skirt portion is great to hide that bit of bump. Definitely wear a skin-colored bra and undies with this! Also wore tan heels to make the dress the star! I

Special Little Blue Dress
Amazing dress. I felt sweet, petite and girly. Extremely comfortable fabric that has stretch with a fun skirt that hits high waist so it conveniently hits any food baby you may get. The ric race is see through but you can't really tell...just looks like a nude mesh but it made it special. Fabulous dress.

Wonderful quality, but runs large.
This dress was sent to me last minute becuase of a mix up with my original order. I'm normally a pretty standard size 4, but this dress was too large. I was sent a 4 and a 6, but could have used a 2. It was in great shape, it looked perfectly new, but because it was too large I didn't work for me. The cut-outs are subtle, but you can definitely see your skin in bright lighting/daylight. My husband noticed right away. I also feel like the skirt is fuller in person than it depicts in the photo, although it may have seemed extra full to me because of the too large size.

Loved the fun cut outs in this dress! It elevates a simple dress to a much more unique look.
The fit would have been perfect had it been a size 6. It was still flattering, but just ran a little big.

Wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner in Chicago.
The fit was a tiny big bigger than I would have liked, but since it didn't come in a 0, the 2 worked fine. The cut was very flattering and subtly sexy. Would definitely wear again!

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Flirty but sophisticated, demure but totally not.
Be aware that this dress tends to run large -- I wish they had a size zero, but I think the two is the smallest it goes. A shame, since the actual length of the dress would work well for a petite frame.

It's a nice dress but not the Wow I was hoping for
Thick material. Nice dress. I wore it for a work Christmas party. It's definitely not a "wow" dress, just nice. Doubt I would rent again. The little cut outs on the side add a bit of flair but be prepared to wear nude colored bra and panties. Very comfortable for sitting, eating dinner, and dancing.

Fun & flattering for a dance fundraiser dinner
I am so glad I read the reviews and ordered a size down. Normally an 8/10 the 6 fit like a glove. I was worried at 5'8" that it would be too short but it was just right. Would not have wanted any shorter though. I wore a nude bra and nude hipster panties. The pleats really hide any low fitting panties when it comes to the ric-rac trim. Also went with nude colored shoes. The fabric is substantial with a little stretch. Excellent quality, loved the full skirt wish I didn't have to send it back!

Easy, flattering option for late winter wedding
I usually wear a size 4 and I ended up going with the 2 in this dress. As others have noted, the dress has a nice, heavyweight fabric that fits well to your form on the top and has flattering draping on the bottom. The flare was a little more pleated and full than I anticipated but it looked great with high platform heels. I have wider hips in relation to my waist/bust so this shape was a safer choice for me. It's great paired with all different kinds of statement necklaces - I tried a few different variations of colors and ended up going with this blue/green combo and silver shoes. Overall, it didn't "wow" me but I was very pleased with the fit and style.

Love this dress!
I run between a 2 and a 4 (I have bigger hips) and the 2 fit perfectly! So fun to dance in and subtly sexy with the cutouts. Definitely wear with thin, nude undies! I wore it with a thin black bra (sticky bra malfunction) but it looked fine. Great length; not too short and a little longer than mid thigh on me (I'm 5'9 plus 3 inch heels). Fabric wasn't as thick as I expected but I would still rent again. Classy and sexy!

Simple, classic cut
Liked this dress a lot. Very simple, classic cut, touch of detail with the lace up sides. Heavier fabric makes the dress lay nicely. Definitely runs a little big. Was only able to order one size at the time, a 4. Would have liked to have had the next size down, the dress was a little loose at the top, and through the rib cage, Would have felt a little better had it been more fitted. Would definitely rent it again if I could try the 2!

Great fit, Fun Dress
I was scared this dress wouldn't fit. I normally wear a size 12, and I ordered a 8 and a 10. The 10 ended up not being available last minute... but it turns out that the 8 fit perfectly. I received a ton of complements and it was fun having the cutouts down the sides. Just make sure to wear skin colored undergarments! The dress was a little heavy, but it was not especially hot that day, so it worked out well. I didn't get any GREAT pictures in the dress... But I would love to get it again. Or own it!!

Great material, tasteful
Runs slightly large. Great color and cut for a wedding. The tiny cutouts are a great touch- you can't see anything underneath and your fat won't show through them haha (I am always worried about that with any cutout in a dress). Conservative and perfect for a wedding.

Cocktail party for work event
The ric rack detail is see through, there is no lining. Skin exposed, under garments exposed. Probably would not suggest for a work-related event. I had to wear a slip underneath. Overall, pretty simple dress with subtle details with flattering silhouette.

Everyone was gushing over how special the trim made the dress - even strangers!
This is my favorite style dress, but it can be plain. The trim made this dress so unique! I loved the slimming lines of it (who doesn't love looking slimmer?), and my husband loved knowing that it was me showing through. Since it was at a family wedding I didn't advertise that it wasn't lined. For anyone worried about showing through, a nude bra and nude panties work just fine since most people will subconsciously fill in what they expect to see. I thought it ran large since I'm usually a 12-14 and the 10 fit easily. I wore the 12 (with a slip!) to work the day it was delivered and it was uncomfortably large, most specifically the back of the dress. The fabric has some weight to it and is just stiff enough to hold its shape, so whenever I sat down in the 12 the back of the neck rose up to my hairline and was very uncomfortable! I'd recommend sizing down in this!

Loved the dress!
Very comfortable. Wore this for a formal gala, and I was very happy with it. If you're between 2 sizes, definitely go for the smaller size. I usually wear either a 2 or 4 and the 2 dress fit perfectly--I would've even considered getting a 0 if they had it.

Great dress for a formal occasion!
I ordered a 12 and a 10, but because the material has some stretch the 10 fit pretty well (I probably could have gone down to an 8). The side design has no panel/material underneath so it does show skin. It wasn't an issue since no one noticed. Great dress, really no complaints!

N/A
I rented this for a bridal shower. It's a pretty dress, but runs large. I tried on the size 2, and the top part fit pretty nicely. Unfortunately, I could not wear this dress-- it made me look like a parachute/tent. The bottom part of the dress just flared out too much for my body. This would probably be a better dress for someone taller. Fortunately, RTR has the best customer service so I'll have credit toward a future rental.
