The neckline was lower than I expected, which I was actually happy about.

Lots of compliments and I wore a dress that I don't normally have in my closet!
The dress fit perfectly!! I didn't have to wear a bra, and the length was perfect, with heels! The black was the perfect color for such a fun dress! I knew that with the brand being Monique, I would most likely wear the size 8, even though I am normally a 6! It was a great choice and I got lots of compliments all night! It was my first time to use rent the runway, and I think I will be using it again! Though, I may only order one dress at a time, and more in advance, so that shipping isn't so pricey!

Cocktail in the Front and Formal in the Back
This dress was my first choice but my backup size was not available so it became my second choice and later winner. I received so many compliments on this dress while attending the Junior League of Los Angeles' Angeleno Night that had an Old Hollywood theme. The only issue that I had was no matter how many times that I tucked in the loops they would find a way out. One of the volunteers remarked that she loved this dress as she also rented it from RTR several weeks ago. Also the pockets were a godsend as I was working behind the scenes that night. I kept capped pens and my cell phone handy. The bust area was good for a woman with a large chest. It was a little loose at the waist area. Other than that, I would rent again from RTR as this was a hit!

No one had a dress like mine!
Was a little bug but that was my fault and should have ordered true to size. This was my prom dress!

I had a ball. Very versatile.
It fit perfectly. Very comfortable. Maybe​ hot for the summer because of the fabric. Also watch your heels in this dress. It can get caught in the web.

GORGEOUS! Classy, spunky and sexy.
Wore this for a gala with 3 inch heels, only a slight drag on the ground but beautiful regardless. Pockets are amazing, held my phone all night with none the wiser, didn't even need a clutch. This fits perfectly at the waist before puffing out in a very flattering way, I felt a bit like a princess. It dips down low in the back so I wore a strapless and made sure the back strap was low enough not to be seen. Chest area is a little awkward as it peaks out a little higher than where your breasts would normally be, I guess you could really get by with no bra at all, I just felt a little uncomfortable doing that. Beautiful dress, received sooo many compliments. Would definitely rent this again or buy it if I have the chance.

This dress is wonderful
This dress was everything I wanted! True to size and well fitted. Wore it out to a military ball and received so many compliments! I love how puffy it is without it being overly puffy. It is lightweight and breathable, perfect for any weather!

Very Flattering!
This is a lovely dress, I was worried about the length since I am only 5'3" but with heels the back was just above the floor. The material is lush and the fit is great, especially if you are an hourglass shape. Plus it has pockets! Would definitely rent again!

Too tight, couldn't zip all the way. Beautiful dress, may try a larger size. But the chest area & straps were loose.

It was an exciting event and I got to meet our 42 president, Bill Clinton.
The fit of this dress was perfect. Typically i am subconscious about my large arms...So I initially planned to wear some sort of blazer, or shawl. However, once i put the dress on, it was way to perfect for me to cover it up. I received so many compliments and my confidence was high. I didn't have to tug, or adjust through out the night... I have hips and a behind and the low front long back was complementary to my shape. Not to mention i didn't even have to wear any extra support under the dress, just a standard spanx. I was comfortable through out the night.

Beautiful
It was awesome; I received a lot of compliments. I chose this for the flair in the skirt ( it hid my flat bottom... LOL) and the lace edging is gorgeous. I am 5'll, with a 40 DDD chest. I felt really pretty and confident. Something about the pockets took me over the edge. I would actually rent this exact dress again.

Perfect dress for a gala
I rented this as a last minute option for a gala. I got so many compliments on the dress. It fit perfectly but was a little long in the back. A 6 regular would have been perfect for me but that was unavailable so I got a 6L. #gala

Perfect dress for a literary gala
This was my backup dress and the 2r was my backup size. Because the back is so low, it would have been hard to wear a bra, and in the 2, I didn't need to wear one. The skirt on the 4 was so voluminous, I felt like an idiot. I'm 5'5", but even in 4 inch heels, the dress trailed on the ground by a few inches. Once I basted up the hem, it wasn't a problem. I never would have picked this dress if it wasn't my backup, but I felt gorgeous. I ended up being super happy.

This dress made me feel so confident!
I ordered the 10L and 12L because I wasn't sure which would fit. The 10L was a little tight in the ribs, but the 12L was loose everywhere else, so I wore the 10L. The back has a deep-V that is flattering but didn't allow for wearing a bra, but I didn't have any issues during the night. I got a ton of compliments on the dress and the fringe made it really unique. I'm 5'8" and the length was perfect for switching into flats at the end of the evening, I wore a shorter heel (1") and there was still plenty of clearance for the dress. This dress is super flattering for all shapes, I highly recommend it. I've got a bit of a muffin top going on from being sedentary while studying for a professional exam all winter and you couldn't tell at all in this dress, it fit & flares at the exact perfect spot!

Unforgettable Dress!
Beautiful dress that I wish I could have kept! Wore it for a Gala with a "rocked out" theme and it was perfect (matching with some red heels). Dress runs true to size and has thicker fabric - it fits like a glove. Thanks RTR for a wonderful experience!

Loved it!
I ordered the 18 and 16 as a backup, ended up wearing the 16. The fit was perfect, very flattering, and a plus was I was able to wear a regular bra. The length was perfect for me, may be a little short for someone taller. It was the most comfortable formal dress I've worn.

Loved the dress!
I loved wearing this dress! I have a wide ribcage (36B or 38B bra size) and was just able to zip up the 6R and still be relatively comfortable (though I probably couldn't have taken a really deep breath). The dress is great at hiding armpit flaps and any lower tummy pouch though which was a huge plus! The length was perfect with 3.5 inch heels. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

I had to go up a size but that is because the belly had just started to pop and hit higher. I got so many compliments on this dress and absolutely loved it!!

I wore it for prom
I normally wear a 12, and the 14 was SO BIG, I ended up putting a belt on it and wearing it strapless and it worked! Loved the pockets and the weight! I wish I would have gotten it in the right size and it would have been perfect!

The dress is very figure flattering... a little tight around the ribcage but helps to make a nice waistline.

This size was overnighted...
After trying the six and eight, RTR overnighted the 10. It was still too tight in the ribs and bust. I probably could have worn a twelve, but they didn't have it available. Will most likely try this dress again because it was beautiful.

The dress was a little long in the back. I'm 5'1" and there were a few inches that drug on the ground behind me. The photos show it just hitting the ground. It was unique though and fit well in the bust/waist. A nice, sturdy material and held up well in shipping.

Beautiful dress, not the same length as the dress from the LA Store
I tried this dress on at the Topanga Store and the length was not an issue in the same shoes in the store (several inches to spare), but the dress was too long with several inches dragging when it arrived at my house. I'm not sure it is labeled wrong and I had a 2L, but I ended up having to pin it from the middle where the spider web lace met the fabric. Aside from the issues with the length (which no one else noticed) I received lots of compliments on this dress! The dress is very fitted in the bodice which creates a nice shape in the waist and chest while being able to hide any extra lower stomach pouch. It is very flattering on the natural waist and gives a great shape. I wore it for a black tie wedding, and think this dress was perfect. (I apologize the picture was taken at the end of the night when I realized I forgot to take one for my review.)

Amazing fit!
Rented this dress for a black tie wedding. It was so comfortable and fit perfectly! I did not need a bra and that NEVER happens! I have a large bust (30FF) and small waist with large hips (typical hourglass) and this dress felt like it was made for me! Tight at my natural waist and enough support for my bust, but nice and flowy. Would recommend this to anyone and everyone and I'm sure I'll be renting it again for another formal event!

Fun hemline, love the pockets
I love a dress with pockets - no evening bag required! There is no give in the waist of this dress and it's a pretty snug fit, so if you're planning to eat, this may not be the dress for you. Others complained of stepping on the lace - I didn't find that to be a big issue, I may have stepped on it once or twice (I'm about 5'6" and was wearing probably 3" heels). Think about your footwear ahead of time. I'm not a shoe person, but MAN your feet are really on display in this dress - like, perfectly framed. So, plan ahead. The neckline was a bit more low cut in person than in the pic, but I liked it - it was very flattering.

Gorgeous dress
Fits tight in the chest, like on the ribs. Other than that it's great. Be aware that the spiderweb in the train can get caught in your heels ;)
