Gorgeous gown

I rented this dress for a wedding and it was absolutely stunning. I felt great wearing it and received so many compliments. I rented the 10L and 12L, but ended up wearing the 12 due to the length. The 10 was a bit of an awkward length even while wearing flats, so even though the 12 was a bit looser the overall look was better. I would definitely rent this dress again for another occasion.

Classic style, bought it

This fit perfectly--it was snug through the hips as it's supposed to be, but I️ could still easily sit and walk around. Just be careful with the lace if you are wearing pointy heels! I️ don't think this will ever go out of style so I️ decided to keep for a future event!

didn't end up wearing, but a close second.

Great fit, but probably looks best on hourglass shapes. I looked very wide in it because of where the waist hit. The lace quality is ok, I've noticed this brand really cheaps out on the lace they used compared to similar styles and brands for the same price, like Self Portrait. I got another dress from the same line and the lace was terrible. But this one, being black, can get away with it. The back looks great, but again probably best for hour glass, it cuts you in half at the waist.

Loved everything about this dress! It was elegant yet edgy and the open back added a touch of sexy.

This dress was the perfect length when worn with 3 inch heels, was incredibly comfortable and easy to wear.

LOVE

Back is amazing! Very comfortable. I'm 5"3 and the length was perfect which is amazing, I wore 3 inch heels and no dragging probably could have even gone with shorter heels. Highly recommended!

This dress fit wonderfully. The all lace back was beautiful. Just be careful going up steps with heels, got caught a couple times in the lace.

It is a beautiful dress, but a bit "too much" in terms of ruffles around the neck and shoulders.

The dress has a bit of an old-fashioned feel with lots of ruffles around the neckline.

This dress is gorgeous black lace, but not for a wedding. I felt like I was going to Gianni Versace's funeral. Would be perfect for a mascarade ball or something like that.

Gorgeous, easy and comfortable.

Beautiful dress, endless compliments. I found that it fit very true to size and regular length was fine- im 5'6" and wore 3 inch heels. No extra undergarments (spanx) required. Was able to go braless with no show-through. Wore with a conservative crowd and felt well covered yet sleek and stylish.

Compliments galore! Felt amazing and it really hid my "mom" body and flaws.

Pros: Fit like a glove. Stunning. Slimming. I got so many compliments from my party as well as strangers. I felt like the dress was so beautiful I could leave off the jewelry. I wore with a 2"heel. Could have worn flats. Cons: None for me. If you are chesty this would be very tight up top in this size.

I wore this dress for a gala, and man...it was a showstopper!

Since I am a plus-sized gal, I was worried about the mermaid cut making me look bigger. However, it did not...and I felt super comfortable in it! The back was just gorgeous. 10/10 would rent again.

Made for taller women, but too gorgeous to pass up!

This dress was made for a taller woman, but it's detail was so gorgeous and the length was perfect for a Black Tie wedding at the Palmer House in Chicago that I had to select it. It's one of those dresses that when you step out, people nod their heads and say, "That's the one!". I had to wear heels and even then, I had to hold my dress slightly, but that didn't deter from how beautiful it was. The back especially. I loved the high neck and full coverage in the front. I work a NuBra with this and it worked perfectly. I'm a short, large girl and this dress still made me look beautiful. Definitely, one to consider, just make sure if you're short you've got some 4+ inch heels on hand to really bring out the beauty in this dress.

This dress is a show stopper. Recieved complements all night.

I'cehaedly ever felt more confident, stykish and beautiful than in this dress. If I could wear it every day I would! It's very comfortable and fits like a dream. I'm on the petite side and wore my standart 4R bit it was slightly big in the hip area on me and still a bit long woth 3 inch heels on. Just be careful when walking. My heel caught in it a few times. I dont think I have ever recieved so many complements in one night.. ranging from beautiful to chic to elegant. I don't normally wear my hair up but had it done in a knot ro the side because the back makes this dress and you can't hide it. I would absolutely rent this again. Highly recommend.

This dress was beautiful, I got compliments all evening.

I had orig. ordered and 18w but it was huge because I didn't know what the w stood for. RTR overnighted me a size smaller and it was perfect. Dress was stunning only issue is that I have a short torso and the dress along the stiff zipped bulged a bit. Dress would be perfect if they use a zipper that wasn't as stiff but that isn't RTR's fault. I loved the dress so much that I wanted to keep it.

Did not end up wearing.

Gorgeous lace and size 2 was small but size 4 was too big and very long. I am 5’6” and even with heels it was a long dress, would’ve dragged on ground.

Lovely lace trumpet gown

I rented this for an industry gala that was a themed event for vintage circus. It worked PERFECTLY for that. I got the 14L and the 16L - the 14 was pretty form fitting and a little short, so I went with the 16, which was more forgiving. I wore lace up suede boots with a stacked heel (so nice not to have to wear stilettos out!), but the toes and laces definitely peeked out. The sheer back did not show much in the way of back fat, which I was concerned about, so that was nice. I got caught on a couple of heels on the dance floor, but otherwise very suitable. Lots of compliments!

This dress is amazing! Very flattering. I did have to wear a size up because it was tight in the hips and butt. Would love to purchase this dress

Show stopper

This dress is everything I needed for my event. It for perfect. I rented a size 12 and 14 because I knew it would be fitted on my hips. This dress was comfortable and showed off my curves perfectly. I usually wear at 12, but I decided to wear the 14 because it fit a little bit loose. I was attending a Gala and knew it was a sit down dinner. People gave me so many compliments. I highly suggest renting this dress. It's perfect for any event.

Beautiful dress!

I loved this dress. Very well made and so beautiful. Unfortunately I was able to wear it due to sizing of the dress. I ordered a 16 and a 18W. I normally wear a 16 but I couldn't get the 16 to zip. I was hopeful for the 18 but it was inches too big. I was so disappointed because the dress is gorgeous.

A perfect dress for a great NYC wedding in Central Park.

Fit was just right. It wasn’t too tight where you couldn’t move so it was great for dancing and especially eating. Great for a black tie optional wedding. I didn’t feel over the top but I certainly didn’t feel underdressed either. The only thing is the zipper as it’s a lace back, but that comes with the territor of a dress like this, so zip with ease!

Stunning lace <3

I wore this dress for a charity gala. It was the perfect mix of conservative and sophisticated with an artistic/edgy feel. I felt so elegant in it! The show-stopper feature is the back (wish I would've snapped a pic) because the lace is transparent and highlights your back. I didn't wear a bra, but used tape that lifts as there is no built in bra. Dress is form fitting but naturally a bit tight on the thighs..I could've went with a 6, but glad I didn't because it would've been too tight on my legs/athletic build. Overall, I got several compliments throughout the night and would highly recommend renting this beaut!

Gorgeous lace; flattering & fun

Very well constructed; thick fabric & flattering. Modern lace detail, especially on back is gorgeous. Neck and shoulder lace detail pretty too. Thick enough I didn't wear Spanx. No bra (fine for my small chest). Many compliments

Gorgeous and sexy but still appropriate

I wore this to my friend's black tie wedding. I don't think a single person I talked to the whole night didn't comment on how amazing it was... I didn't want to send it back! I'm 5'7" and wore the L... it was a tad long, however because the wedding was in a greenhouse I wore a 2 inch gold metallic brocade Michael Kors block heel. I think had I worn my usual 4 inch heels, it would have been the perfect length. I was also concerned about not wearing a bra, however didn't have trouble.
