This dress fit me like a GLOVE! My favorite part was the bustle in the back.

I didn't wear a bra with this dress because A) I didn't want the strap to show in the back and B) the bust was tight enough to keep them secure. Just a TAD on the scratchy side, but I only felt it in the first hour of wearing it. Eventually I didn't notice it. Otherwise, it is a very well designed dress and I had so much fun wearing it!

Pretty for winter, but rented in June!

This dress was sent by RTR when a dress I'd ordered for a summer wedding wasn't available. It's very pretty and glamorous-looking, but it's also VERY heavily lined. This would be a great dress for a winter event, but trying it on in June in my AC-less NYC apartment, I was sweating like crazy before I even got it zipped up. I also found that I was between sizes--the 6 fit on the bottom but wouldn't zip all the way, and the 8 zipped easily but hung like a big sack on my hips. (I have a wide ribcage/broad shoulders and frequently have this issue.)

Figure flattering

I was torn between wearing this dress and another gown to a formal wedding. Ultimately, I chose the other gown, but only because it was a little more eye-catching. This dress is really pretty and is very figure flattering. It has a slightly heavier feel than other lace dresses, but that just makes it more versatile. I loved that it gave me the coverage that I needed in the chest and still looked elegant and chic.

Classy dress with some fun detail

I never wear sheath dresses but I wanted to try something different and I'm glad I did. ML dresses are so flattering and I loved the lace. The dress was sexy in a subtle way, which I loved. I got lots of compliments, like I always do with RTR dresses! Warning: you're probably going to want some Spanx. And the zipper is a pain to zip up, so grab a friend to help.

Beautiful but not for a petite person!

Dress was a beautiful navy color with a nice floral lace. Extremely heavy material and lots of material at the back side made for a bit more of a "bustled" look than I would have hoped. Also cut for a much taller/longer proportioned individual. The dress came almost to the top of my calf, so looked extremely matronly on me. Didn't do much for my smaller frame figure than seem to swallow me. Was going to wear for a wedding as a bridesmaid who needed to wear a navy dress but ended up passing. Would have been nice, were I 5 or 6 inches taller.

Nice color

I probably wouldn't rent this dress again. The zipper on both sizes was nearly impossible to zip up because of the thick fabric. It's also a little itchy. Nice color though and length is cool for a formal event. Fabric "train" on the back is also not my style, but added to the formality of the dress.

High quality, classic, but interesting. Felt like a million bucks!

Fit just like I would expect a size 6. The craftsmanship is high quality, although the thick fabric makes the zipper a little tricky- you will need help. Not a lot of stretch, but I wasn't expecting it. A bit scratchy, but still comfortable. Another rental success!

I felt like a million bucks in this dress

I rented this for a New Years wedding. The fit is beautiful, and the cut of the dress is incredibly flattering. Also, the material is thick so it felt very forgiving. No need to wear Spanx. Also enough support that I didn't need a bra (but that may be a different story if you are well-endowed...I am not). The only con is the zipper. It's impossible. I needed three people to help me zipper the dress. Didn't take away from how much I loved the dress though! Would definitely rent again.

Easy

The 4 fit well but I wish I would have gotten a 2 because the top was a bit large since I'm smaller chested. Also the zipper was stiff.

Lovely lace, narrow skirt

The dress is beautiful in every way. Only issue is the skirt is narrow and hits below the knee, so if you have long legs, it is hard to walk normally because you are forced to take smaller steps. Going up stairs is also comical.

Beautiful lace and classy!

The dress fit wonderfully I loved it!! I wore this to a black tie optional wedding the length went perfectly with the event it hit right above my knees. There is no give to the dress after dinner and drinks it felt a little constricting. I normally wear size 6 in dresses but the 4 fit perfectly. I wore a strapless bra. The lace is itchy. Word of advice you cannot zip this dress up alone. The zipper gets stuck right at the top of the ruffle and it's very hard to get the zipper to go past it. Otherwise I received many many compliments on the fit and look of this dress.

Wore this dress to my step daughters college graduation. Got lots of compliments. Runs very small so order your back up size larger than your normal. Great dress.

Hot July wedding

The picture doesn't do this dress justice-- beautiful deep blue color, fun ruffles in the rear, deep cleavage without feeling inappropriate. My only con was it had zero stretch so walking and dancing were hindered a bit, but over all a very pretty dress to rent!

Compliments galore!

Overall, loved the dress (especially because you can wear a regular bra with it!) only con was I am so short and the dress probably would hit higher on a taller female which I think looks nicer! But received compliments all night and was thrilled with my first experience on RTR!

I felt like a million dollars in this dress!

This dress looked fantastic! I ordered an 8 and 10. The 10 fit better, but the shoulders were much to big. The 8 was a little snug, but shoulders fit better. I ended up wearing a strapless bra just in case the shoulders slid down. I will definitely be ordering again!!

This was elegant and beautiful. I usually wear a size 4 and this was true to size. I didn't wear a bra and I loved the cleavage that resulted. I felt really pretty! Lots of compliments. I will definitely be using RTR again!

Beautiful dress

I loved this dress and the photos don't do the details justice. I ordered both a 0 and a 2 and I'm glad I did because although the zero fit, the darts in front did not lay flat. I'm 5'4 and 105 lbs with a 34 C. There was a lot of cleavage and I did have to wear a bra, although the dress is fully lined and heavy. The only difficulty was that the zipper was hard to zip and the back hem was tight. I felt like a mermaid walking and you have to take small steps, just FYI. Overall, a great fit and beautiful dress!

Beautiful, detailed dress!

Rented this for my opening night and it was perfect!! It hugged my body perfectly and it was super easy to move in. The only downside is the back zipper can be finicky, but totally worth it for the look! I also loved the bustled back.

Wore this for a rehearsal dinner and loved the look! The 4 was slightly tight but the 6 was too big so I went with the 4. Hard to zip in the back. Received many compliments!

Gorgeous formal wear

Size up wasn't available on my dates so I tried going with the 4 bit could not even get close to zipping it up. Should have probably gone with a 6 or 8. Overall very formal, lots of material and has some weight to it. Dress itself is gorgeous lace detailing with a bustle - would have liked to see how it fit on me on. Maybe next time...

Did not fit.

Dress looks beautiful. I recently had a baby so sizing is tricky right now and unfortunate neither size fit, despite ordering according to my new temporary measurements. Seems to run small. It did seem like it would be a bit itchy to wear.

It was surprisingly comfortable and very forgiving.

I'm big on top but was able to get away with a stick on bra. The thick lace was very forgiving. The bustle thing in the back looked a little weird in photos.

It was sexy without the dress needing to be short

I loved this dress . The only draw back is the underlining seems to shift if you go to the bathroom . Which was annoying to make sure the slip underneath wasn't bunched . Other than that the dress was very sexy and comfortable that

I felt beautiful in my dress, was comfortable and able to dance all night with my dress.

The dress was well made and looked lovely. I received compliments all night. However the zipper was a little tricky and I needed more room for my hips, so I had to go with the 10 which was my back up size. Loved the dress, will definitely rent again.

I felt like a million bucks!

I planned to wear the 10 since I didn't loose those last few lbs, and it fit perfectly in the hips and waist but was too large in the straps. I ended up in the 8 so that the top would fit, and it may have been slightly less comfortable and a little snug, but I felt gorgeous! There were tons of compliments. Do not underestimate the warnings about the zipper though! It took me 2 extra sets of hands to zip.

Stunning

I'm postpartum and wearing a 32G at the moment. Couldn't believe I was able to fit my normal size in the bust. More cleavage than I'm accustomed to, but it wasn't too tight. This dress is so classy and gorgeous, so I didn't feel weird showing a little more skin than normal. The back is quite low. I was able to use a strap attachment to drop my bra in the back, and my spanx didn't come up high enough to show.

Fancy and Fun

This dress garnered lots of compliments! A couple of notes though- it doesn't give at all- be prepared. The zippers on both the size 4 and 6 were VERY stiff. I couldn't get it zipped by myself. Also, this dress is a little itchy, due to the detail. Overall, it was a great dress for the event.

So many compliments

Beautiful dress. It is SNUG around the bust. That was fine for me- I'm very flat chested, so it was very flattering as it almost made me appear to have fuller cleavage. But for anyone who's not flat as a board, like myself, anticipate that snugness... (maybe size up)?The material is VERY scratchy. It was beautiful, but that part, especially around the tight chest/arm area, was uncomfortable.

Fit well, pretty, but strap broken

This dress was a beautiful deep navy blue lace that was rather weighty but not too much. When I received the dress the strap was almost ripped all the way through at the seam at the top of my shoulder. I tried to repair it and went to the church wedding. Unfortunately my repair did not hold and it ripped again when I sat down. I could not wear the dress and had to wear my backup dress for the reception. My backup dress was gorgeous so I ended up wearing two dresses for this event so it was kind of fun. Most of all I was just disappointed that rent the one runway had sent me a ripped dress to begin with. This dress fit really well and had a nice V in the front and a beautiful deep V in the back. My regular bra strap showed just a little bit at the bottom of the back V. The front V was a little bit deeper than I would normally prefer but doable. The dress came just passed my knees and definitely would have been difficult to run in if that situation arose.

Very pretty but formal

I got this for a nice dinner while on vacation with my husband. It was a little too formal and ended up not wearing it. It has a (very pretty) bustle in the back- much more appropriate for a black tie wedding. Regardless, it was beautiful. Runs a bit small. There's no way the 2 would fit, but the 4 was perfect.

Stunning dress

I rented this dress for my son's wedding and it was perfect! I usually wear size 10 but needed a 12 in this style to be able to zip up the top. Plenty of room from the waist down though! The bustle in the back made this dress look so elegant.
