Sparkles beyond Sparkles!!
I absolutely LOVE this dress and would even rent it again! The beading was gorgeous and even though there were multiple spots that were coming loose and losing beads. I typically wear a size 12 dress and may try a smaller size next time so the top fit a bit more snug. Only reason I was uncomfortable was because I wasn't wearing a bra... Being a 36DDD I always wear one. Having to go without one for a few hours was okay, but I will be doing my research to see what I can get for next time.

Perfect dress for a cocktail party or other event.
Love this dress! Has a very flattering fit and love the style. I wore this to a company event and needed a knee length cocktail dress that was tasteful, while still dazzling and unique. I received countless compliments, and I especially like the bare back.

I was unable to wear this dress.
I received this dress as a back up since my original choice became unavailable last minute. The details on this dress are amazing however the dress itself is slightly heavy. I received sizes 8 and 10. I'm 5'6 160 and the size 8 was a better fit. My only issue with the dress is that the sides in the back would not lay flat since it is an open back, it bunched up a bit possibly because I have a large booty which made the dress hike up a bit. This dress is great for hiding tummy flaws. I was unable to wear the dress because it was going to be really hot however I would consider renting in under color weather conditions.

Super fun dress that was perfect for an Art Deco style wedding.
The dress is quite heavy, so keep that in mind for the dance floor. I got a ton of compliments. The beading makes it sparkle, but not in an overwhelming way.

I wore this to a formal daytime wedding. Stunning! Beading shimmers in the light. Loved it!
Fit perfectly. The only downside was that the top back clasps kept coming undone. I imagine a fuller chest would keep it tighter but I am pretty small on top.

Beautiful Dress, Lots of compliments
I rented this for a friend's wedding and absolutely loved it. I agree with another review that mentioned the clip in the back has a hard time staying closed. I used a safety pin to hold it together. Other than that, it was perfect.

Greta for a high class wedding. Great dancing dress - comfortable to wear with simple black pumps.
a little short waisted for me, but I am tall so used to that kind of fit. Overall very comfortable. I did not wear a bra and wish I had, but coverage was fine. Overall would recommend it and might rent it again!

I rented this dress for a wedding, several people said they loved it.
It's forgiving if you're trying to hide your waist. It is heavy thanks to the beading but it's really nice for a wedding overall--longer and looser so it's comfortable for dancing, sparkly but not too showy.

This dress was amazing and I got so many compliments. Comfortable yet elegant.
This was my first RTR experience. I wore the dress for a wedding. I was a little unsure about having to go braless given my chest size but you couldn't tell. The dress fits true to size and I got so many compliments the ought the night. Definitely a dress I would recommend wearing. I ordered the size up just to be safe and didn't even need it.

Classy, gorgeous party dress with a beautiful back
Tried this on in Vegas before renting for a Gala. Classy look reached just to knees, tight enough on top to not wear a bra (36C). Heavy beading makes the dress hang nicely. It is a bit warm, but great for fall/winter. Lovely tulle detail at the hemline. I would rent this again. I normally wear 8, and this fit perfectly. Sexy back.

Beautiful Dress!
This dress is beautiful! The size 10 fit perfectly, and it was brand new with the tag still on it! I did not wear a bra with the dress because of the low back, but I'm smaller busted (36B), so there were no issues. I received many, many compliments on the dress. Other renters noted that the dress was itchy/scratchy on the underarms, but I did not experience that. Overall, I would rent this dress over and over again. It's not the same old LBD, but yet I could wear it over and over again!

Beautiful!
The fit was true to size, the 6 fit like a glove, I tried a size 4 as well and it fit everywhere except it was a little tight in the waist since there is no stretch to the fabric. Some of the beading rubs a little under your arms, but wasn't too uncomfortable. The beading is really beautiful, it stands out without being too "flashy". The open back adds a touch of sexiness to the otherwise modest dress. I chose to wear a stick on bra- definitely no way to wear a regular one with the back. Overall, I really loved the dress and got lots of compliments. It was perfect for a black tie optional wedding- classy, and formal without being over the top.

Glam!!
This dress is a stunner! You'll want to wear a nu-bra with this dress. The fit was snug in the waist, loose in the hips and the hook and eye closure at the top was tight as well. I should of opted for the 10 rather than the 8, but it still looked great. I received multiple compliments and enjoyed dancing the night away in this little number.

Beautiful Dress!
Unfortunately didn't get a full length picture, but the dress really looks exactly as shown on the site. I ordered a size 8 but I felt that it was way to loose in the open back area and really felt too large overall. They did not have a 6 to send me so I ended up in the 4. It actually fit very well and I loved the look of the dress when I went a little smaller. The hooks at the neck did tend to come undone, it helps to squeeze them tight after you close them. This was my first RTR experience and it was amazing! I received a beautiful dress to wear to my event and it couldn't have gone smoother!

Beautiful beading design!
Rented this dress for my husband's work Christmas party. The fit of the dress is perfect! 18 weeks pregnant when I rented this and it was not tight across the tummy or anything. If I was not pregnant I would of probably sized down. The clasps and the top of the dress where a little loose but I am also small in the shoulders. The dress is heavy but nothing that's unbearable. Would rent again

Perfect for our formal anniversary date!
The beading and cut was absolutely beautiful, as expected. Wore the 4, got the 6 as a backup. The 4 even came with tags still on it! 6 was too big, the 4 was almost perfect. The beading of the dress was heavy but not too bad. Did rub somewhat under the arms but didn't bother me. The top clasp wouldn't stay hooked so had to safety pin it--which can be seen in the photo, it was pinned closer and tighter than the clasp would close it. The back kind of gaped a bit. Probably would've stayed closed/not gaped if my bust were bigger. The middle waistline hit me at a weird spot--it was kind of tight on my ribs, and the fabric really doesn't have any stretch, but it wasn't unbearable. Everything I expected from reading the other reviews. Overall, I am very pleased with the dress. Got many compliments.

This was such a fun dress! I got a lot of compliments throughout the night.
It's on the heavy side, but not horrible. The dress made me feel great and it was fun to wear. I wore it to a Catholic wedding and then to the reception. It was great for both on a warmer day in December.

Holiday Party Hit!
I got a ton of compliments on this fun party dress. I loved the color, pattern and sparkle. It was a bit snug at the arm hole and really difficult to close the eye hooks at the neck on my own (they even came undone once early in the day). I don't know if I would have gone a size up since it fit so well in the waist and bodice.

Beautiful and comfortable
I ordered a 2 and a 4 and ended up wearing the 2. It wasn't super heavy, perfect for winter time. The back opening didn't lay completely flat but that didn't bother me and I received many compliments. It is a little long, I felt like I needed heels so my legs wouldn't look short. I am tall and have long legs so girls with shorter legs may find it falls below the knee.

Beautiful, classy and elegant. Got so many compliments from random strangers.
Great dress, very classy if you aren't looking to have everything hanging out. You can't wear a regular bra with it because of the back and my 'girls' are usually too big to go braless but the lining and beading mean you can wear it comfortably without one without jiggles or anyone being able to see you are braless.

Stunning elegance
I loved wearing this dress. It didn't photograph as well as some other dresses I've rented and tried, but it looked spectacular in person. the length is great, especially in these winter months, but the sheer fabric gives it a little sex appeal. I wore the 6, because it fit me better on top, it was a little tight, but I liked it better. I'm usually between a 6 and a 10 depending on the designer and style

Beautiful dress, best for hourglass or proportionate bodies, hard to wear without a bra
I got this as a backup but didn't end up wearing it out because I didn't have a special bra to hold the girls in place. As a pear shape, this didn't do much for me, even if I had the right undergarments, so I decided not to go out and purchase a new bra. But honestly, the dress itself was gorgeous.

Elegant in appearance, yet effortless in execution.
I am 5'3" with full breasts. It was a bit snug around the chest, but not uncomfortable. I wish it were more fitted around the waist, but the seam detail gave the definition I wanted to see. Stunning, unique, and beautiful broken glass design.

This dress was STUNNING, i looked everywhere to buy it, had to rent it twice.
This dress was classy, unique, comfortable and sexy all in one. Totally not as matronly as the photo looks but is certainly glamorous. It is form fitting in all the right places, especially for a bigger bottom half girl. I am a 36B and didn't have to wear a bra with the beautiful open back. The sleeves and sheer beaded bottom were light and a lovely touch to a dress that was heavy when you picked it up, but not when you wear it. The beaded sleeves didn't bother me as much as other reviews said, i barely noticed them. Got so many compliments.

Stylist Review!
This is such a festive look for a holiday event! The material is comfortable and the pattern makes you stand out without being overwhelming. The sequins on the style do make the dress heavier than expected, but it's not heavy enough to hinder any movements. The length is a bit longer than I expected, so I recommend this style for taller women.

Felt like Cinderella!
I wore this dress to a Valentine's Day party. I was concerned about not wearing a bra, since I ALWAYS wear a bra, but I purchased a nubra and went a size smaller on the dress and it fit like a glove. I felt so glamorous wearing this dress! I wish I had more places to wear it!

I got lots of compliments on this dress. It is "modest" enough to be professional with a bit of zing
This dress ran a bit large for me. The size 8 was way too big and the size 6 was a slightly big, and I'm 5'9 155 lbs (normally a size 8 or 10).

It was stunning on the hanger. It was even more stunning on.
My favorite thing about this dress was its weight and texture. The beading is heavy and intricate, and with a two silky liners underneath, it lays so nicely. There's some swing too with the way the hemline has lighter beading. The dress felt so luxurious to wear -- I found an excuse to wear it to a second party after the first which I rented it for. For my formal dinner, I wore it with heeled ankle boots, black tights and a black blazer. So chic, and it worked for a weeknight. I brought it out a second time for an Oscars party, and because the back is open and I did not have a backlesss bra, I wore a silky black camisole underneath. The waistline still cinched in nicely. So flattering. I definitely will want to rent this one again.

As always, RTR delivered beautiful clothes so easily!
This is a really beautiful dress and the picture does not do it justice. However, it runs small. I usually wear a size 12 and ordered the 14W as a back-up. I'm glad that I did! I could barely close the waistband and it was far too tight across the chest. For ladies who have an ample bust or broad rib cage, you definitely need to go up a size! The downside (for me) is that the 14W was MUCH too big; there is a significant jump between the size 12 and 14W. While I could barely squeeze into the 12, I could pinch about 3 or 4 extra inches all around on the 14W.

Beautiful, classy dress
This dress fit wonderfully. It is a classy, understated dress that would be perfect for a dressy affair. I ended up not wearing it because the open back didn't look great on me since it showed the sides of my waist. I wasn't comfortable showing that much skin for this particular event. If I was 10 pounds thinner, I would have been more comfortable. Great dress however. Wish it would have worked for me.
