Great Halloween costume!
Dress was a little snug around the ribs, but otherwise it was perfect for a Helen of Troy costume

I loved this dress! Super comfortable and easy to dance in, however it's really confusing to get on.
I loved this dress! It was super comfy and easy to move around in. However it's really hard to figure out to get on and I needed my friends help. I was unable to wear a bra but the dress covered everything perfectly so I didn't have to worry about not wearing one.

The top of this dress was huge and completely swallowed me. If you don't have a large ribcage, skip it. You really have to be quite broad around your top half to make this work--I think bust size is actually irrelevant. Very oddly constructed dress. For me, it was impossible to wear.

DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT RENT THIS DRESS. I am a 34D and still couldn't fill out a 4 to make the dress look like it does in this picture- they had to have used pins or something because it gaps in the middle to give an unflattering key-hole and then the straps fall off the back of your shoulder so it gaps horrible towards the top of the neckline as well. ALSO, this dress looked like something I could've gotten at forever21 when i got it out of the box, the fabric looks cheap like gold glitter paint was just sprayed places with little pieces of gold streamer pasted on. i was HIGHLY disappointed with this dress- be warned, despite what the stylists say when you ask, this dress has SERIOUS problems- save yourself the hassle of having to find another dress last minute and DO NOT RENT THIS DRESS

I would not recommend renting this dress if you are small in the bust. I have a wide chest (35.5"), but a small cup (A to B) and neither the 6 or the 8 fit in the chest, though both sizes were fine in the waist. I ended up returning the dress without wearing it. But, even if it had fit, I thought it looked somewhat cheap (the material, the lining).

I sized up per the websites instructions and should've sized down. This dress was HUGE on me. First of all, you need a DD cup to wear this thing (don't believe how it looks on the model - the chest area is way too big on this dress). Second of all, it does not (or at least in my experience) run small! Maybe if I had sized down for my backup size it could've worked. But I wasn't able to wear it.

Cute dress, but......
I traditionally wear a size 6 and since I have been working out I ordered the size 4 and 6. So low and behold I ended up wearing the size 4. I have to agree with everyone else the dress is beautiful but the bust is a bit on the large side. There was a bit more fabric in that area and I did have to make a few adjustments. I will admit that I was not expecting the peep whole which all my friends seem to love. The dress seemed a bit short to me but I guess that could be because of my backside.

Different but still Great!
I wore this dress to my sorority formal. I was expecting the front to be completely closed but there was a peephole running from the under the bust to halfway up my collarbone. Since I am relatively small chested, the peephole ended up looking good and not trashy since I had little cleavage. I actually ended up liking it when I put the dress on. The back is just fabulous. I ordered the dress because I loved the back and it really looked good. I got tons of compliments on the dress. I ordered a four, expecting to wear that size but I ended up wearing the two because I have a small waist and small bust.

If you are busty this dress will look marvelous on you! It really needs to be filled out on top to give it shape but if that is the case the rest just falls extremely flattering on your body

Beautiful dress. I wanted to love it, but just ended up being uncomfortable with the large fit.
As many people in the reviews have said, there is a keyhole in the bust. I taped this shut and the dress looked really nice. The back straps, however, were much too long, causing the top to gape and show way too much side boob. If I stood or sat still, the dress looked great. As soon as I moved though, the top refused to cooperate. This dress is definitely one to try, but be sure to have some garment tape on hand.

Loved it! Perfect for the occasion.
The color was beautiful, off-white which was good since I wore it in fall and didn't want it to be too white. It was rather large on top, but after I pinned it up a little it was fine. It's a really beautiful dress.

Way awkward
I read the reviews and figured i'd give it a shot maybe because I thought i was shaped differently..No. This dress was just really awkward fitting. It runs large around the bust and even my sister who is way more endowed in that area couldn't pull it off. I'm just disappointed about this dress overall. Whoever can pull it off is thoroughly blessed

Good fun flirty dress. Very unique and got tons of compliments!
I am normally a 0/2, and only the 0 was available. i was a little concerned, but after reading the reviews that said the top part was very spacious, i tried it out. The 0 worked perfectly for me because i have a small waist but large bust, so was very fitted at waist but had plenty of room at top. Didnt need a bra, but did pin it up a bit around the back of the neck since some of the fabric was slightly loose on the sides. Perfect for petite girls with large chest for sure. Order a size down and have pins ready just in case!

Chanel your inner Marilyn Monroe!
LOOVED This dress. Unfortunately I couldn't wear it, as it was too large in the chest area. If I had had more time before the event, I probably could've fixed it and tied it up or pinned it or something, but unfortunately I didn't have the chance. Gorgeous dress over all though!

I couldn't wear it :( but I did order a backup dress, which I ended up loving instead.
I bought it for NYE in Key West and never ended up wearing it. It was so pretty, but the fit was too big in the chest (I am a size 12, 36 C). The key hole was really odd and with an open back, you can't wear a bra so you look saggy. I really wanted it to work out, but it didn't.

This dress was absolutely GORGEOUS! I wore it for my Rehearsal Dinner and got a ton of compliments!!
I typically wear a size 8, but when I put the 8 on, the top was way too big and there was extra space around my waist. The six fit perfectly, but the top still seemed a little large. I think it is designed that way to give the wearer a bit of room to move (the material has zero give). The zipper is a bit tough to zip as the material of the dress makes the tiny zipper challenging to zip all the way (does that make sense?). Also, there is an eye hole in the front, so the girls might peek out a little! Overall, the dress is beautiful, I was just a little self conscious because there is NO WAY you can wear a bra with this! It was worth it though! I couldn't have worn a more perfect dress!!! :) BTW, these pictures don't do the dress any justice.

Rented for law school prom
I didn't end up wearing this one, but I'm a pretty busty girl and this dress was huge on top on me. After pinning it, it was fine and very very cute. I also had an amazing experience with RTR customer service when the 10 was damaged by the last user. They sent me an absolutely gorgeous back-up dress that fit perfectly and looked incredible free of charge and overnighted it all to me. Best customer service I've ever dealt with. Will definitely be renting again!

Broken zipper
I usually wear an 8 or 10. The 6 in this would have fit perfectly but the zipper wouldn't zip all the way, so I didn't wear it :( However RTR was incredible and refunded my money. And I've been renting from them ever since!

This dress is beautiful. They only thing is my boobs were too small. :( my waist fit perfect, but the chest was too big. I had to pin the back in order for it to feel fit. Other than that, I refueled tons of compliments.

Very Strange Fit
I rented this to wear to my rehearsal dinner. The dress was very blousy on top, and had a short skirt. My torso was too short for the top, and because of the style of the dress (defined waist), there was nothing to do to make it wearable. The fabric was very pretty, though!

Definitely a hit at my sorority formal ! I got compliments all night! The only problem is that even in the 2 my 34c boobs did not quite fill out the top so smaller chested ladies might not want this dress

I loved the dress but had some complications ordering it. Instead of only getting two dresses we got four. Dont know how that happened... Hopefully it can be straightened out so I dont get charged for double the money
I rented this dress for my prom. I was nervous about the dress because of the reviews written about it but it worked out so well! I am a 36D and it fit around the bust perfectly. There was a little bit of extra material but it did not bother me. I would recommend this dress to girls who are a C or D because of how it fits and not to ones who are smaller in that area. Also I recommend to wear your hair up when you wear this dress because my hair got caught a couple times on the buttons in the back. I got so many compliments on this dress and my date loved it!

This dress was gorgeous and I received many great compliments for it. The main issue with this dress was that the top portion was too big. I wore a size 6 and it fit the waist perfectly. However, the top sagged a bit and was slightly baggy in the upper back. I do think that if I had a larger bust (I am a 34B) I could have filled it out better, but really the dress needed to be pulled tighter at the neck. It still looked great but was a little uncomfortable as I was adjusting all night. It really is a beautiful dress but be ready to make adjustments!

Ivory Lurex Halter Dress
The dress is gorgeous, but the top is a little awkward. There is definitely more material there than expected, so it's not really even a matter of if you can fill it out or not. From the waistband up, picture that section shrunk down a bit so it's not as long like on the model. That's sort of what the dress looks like (there's also that hole in the middle like someone else said). Overall I still liked the dress, but do know it doesn't exactly look as slimming as on the model.

Cute daytime fun dress....for the right body type!
Nice dress, BUT... this dress is best for a tall girl with super long legs. The high waistband placement, short skirt and twist front all conspire to shorten your torso. If you have short legs, your gonna look like a squished oompa-loopa. I'm slender with longer limbs and even I looked slightly chubby and squat. The waist band is super fitted with NO stretch so you might want to size up. Also, the back is open but the fit is unforgiving, so if you have loose back skin or back fat this dress will display it all. If you are tall or super thin or long limbed and are medium chested, this dress will look awesome. Its all about the legs, so wear your super sky-high stilettos and ROCK ON!

Too small in the waist, too large in the bust
This dress is really designed for skinnier girls with a large chest.The waist area was way too small for me and the bust was too large. did not wear this backup dress. It also had a pink stain on the bottom of the dress. will not be renting this one again.

Great looking dress, but not a great fit
The dress has so much potential, but in my case it just didnt fit! :( The bust was too large and baggy around the sides, the neck was tight and the waist was very tight. I typically wear a 4, but the 4 was so tight it wouldn't zip and the 6 zipped but was uncomfortably tight. I rented this dress for a date night with my husband, but am returning it due to size. I love RTR so this is not going to deter me from renting again!

I hated this dress. Not flattering at all
I hated this dress. I have loved everything that I've rented from RTR, and I was really disappointed by this dress. It was super complicated to put on. I got tangled a few times. I hated that it pushed my boobs down and made them look droopy. It might look better on an athletic build or a straight and narrow, thin body type, but not on me. The skirt was very full and the dress just wasn't flattering. I didn't even bother packing it for my vacation.

Weird, weird fit, especially in the chest.
This dress was a very strange fit. It was tight in my hips (which are pretty proportional to my frame), but HUGE in my chest (which is not huge, but also not flat)... when I tried it on my boyfriend couldn't stop laughing, at first I was offended but then I looked in the mirror and realized it did look absolutely ridiculous. Might look great on large chested girls with narrow hips, however! Fabric was nice.

I agree with the review below, this dress was extremely loose and awkward fitting in the bust. It does not cross exactly as in the picture either and there is skin that shows in the middle of your chest. I also found the straps to be very loose and did not pull the top of the dress as tight as it is shown. Very pretty in the picture but the top just doesn't fit the way it is shown.

As the notes say, best for someone with a long torso. This dress fit very weird and did not work for me, even when I attempted to use fashion tape. Too much fabric at the top, but not enough coverage; not sure how they got it to fit like it does in the picture.

I agree with what others said about the dress although I do think if I had a larger bust this dress would have worked. However, apple shapes beware, the waistband is quite wide spanning from just under the breasts to almost the natural waist. I'm guessing this dress would work best for an hourglass figure. I got tons of compliments, so others must not have noticed I didn't fill out the top!

I didn't end up wearing the dress. The picture shown looks great on the model, but in reality, it fits very awkwardly (especially the bust). It also reminded me of a choir dress once I saw the material up close- it was extremely bulky in the bust leading to extra fabric under the arms. I wouldn't recommend!!
