Edgy and sweet!
Love the side lattice cut-outs on this dress. Yes, that is my skin you see, not a nude lining. HA. I wore this to a party and got tons of compliments. Its secretly sexy! The full skirt shape makes it girly and sweet while the cutouts add edge. Love this dress!! I wore a 6 and it was a perfect fit.

Looks great on you! I've got this dress coming to me tomorrow - any tips on the bra/underwear situation?
KimApril 17, 2014
hi Lisa. Personally, I would just wear a normal nude bra that matches my skin tone, but if you want the sides to be completely flush - then wear a sticky bra! Same deal for the underwear situation, I would just wear nude colored. The lattice cut outs are not so big, so I don't think anyone will notice!

This is so pretty! I am about your height and weight but with a bit of a bigger bust. do you think ordering the 6 and 8 would be better? I'm normally between a 4 and 6 so I always have a hard time deciding whether to go up or down in the extra size.

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.

The fit of this one is unbeatable. Put it on and you'll be happy!
The fabric of this dress is very flattering and comfortable. And yet the little details (small cutouts along the front) make it sexy.

Beautiful Dress that was perfect for my party
I rented this dress for a formal I had to go to. The material was a bit on the heavy side but it wasn't unbearable. The dress was sophisticated with the color and cut but the cutouts added the perfect about of sexy. I totally would've kept it if I could've!

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!

Loved wearing this dress at a rehearsal dinner prior to a wedding.
I would probably have not selected this dress if not for my stylist Kendra, who was awesome. The dress was age appropriate (I am 60), and I loved how I felt in the dress. Very classic, elegant dress.

Classy with a touch of mystery
This dress was so fun! The fit is very flattering and has just enough of a cutout to keep people guessing! The material is thick and the scalloping on the bottom is so cute. I paired it with a big chunky necklace and it was a hit!

Heavy, thick, and not flattering
I ordered this as a backup dress. Thankfully my original dress fit well because this dress was not great and I didn't end up wearing it. It's a really thick, heavy material. I think the material adds bulk and is not flattering. I think you need to be super skinny to pull this off without looking heavier than you are. The neckline is also very high; it was not comfortable as it hit me in the throat. That said, it fits true to size. I'm usually a size 2 and the size 2 fit.

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.

LOVED this dress!!
This dress fit so well and was so flattering!! The fabric was stretchy, which added to the comfort. Because of the cutouts, I wore a nude bra as well as a slip (the dress is unlined).

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!

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.

Cute, comfortable dress with a little sauciness added in
True to size. Smallest size available was a 2 and just a tiny bit loose on me, but not enough that anyone would notice. Wore this to a rather warm summertime wedding, was nice to have some "venting" on the skin from the open detailing on the sides. Almost had a Marilyn Monroe flash-the-crowd moment when the wind kicked up, beware stiff breezes! Overall a fun & unique dress that I would rent again.

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!

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!

Great Dancing Dress and Super Comfortable
The dress was so much fun and great to dance around in all night. (I tried to include pictures to show how well it moved!) I really liked the material, it was heavier than I expected, which helped the dress fall nicely in place. The cutouts down the side were a great touch and I just wore a shape wear body suit to make sure undergarments weren't visible. The trim is also very pretty, and different. The way the skirt moved and the slightly more exaggerated flair were my favorite parts, I adored this dress.

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!!

I received a lot of compliments on this dress! It was super comfy for a south GA wedding!
I rented a size 8 and also the size 6, the 8 was huge! So glad I got the free second size, the 6 was perfect! The details on the sides of the dress are see through, but if you wear nude under garments, then it's no problem! This dress was comfortable for an outside formal wedding in the south Georgia heat.

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.

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.

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.

I rented this dress for a close friends wedding and received several compliments.
The fit of the dress was perfect. I am usually a size 6 so I ordered the 4 and the 6 and the 4 fit perfectly. I am very chesty so the material was perfect because it stretched and was able to accommodate that area for me. Loved the color, fit, and would even rent this same dress again for another occasion.

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.

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!

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.
