Classy! Received so many compliments throughout the night. Perfect dress for a late October wedding

Fashion tape recommended, and the straps stay in place better the more snug the straps fit on top. Mine shifted around slightly, but it wasn't an issue. The back of the dress was my absolute favorite.

I got numerous compliments on this dress, mostly relating to the stunning back!

Runs true to size, can't wear a bra, BUT it has pockets which was nice!

So fabulous!

Originally wanted the kate spade dress similar to this one, so I just settled. When it got to me door though I was greatly surprised and feel in love! Fabulous dress and so different! Only issue was the top fitting weird, it was lose and big, but yet the dress was tight in the waist. Not a huge deal but that was the only issue!

Wearing a designer dress!

The fit is definitely big! I'm usually a 2.... But I had to wear a 0 but that was still big! Specifically it is big in the chest area for someone with a size 32A

Didn't get to wear unfortunately

I'm usually a 6 but the four was perfect since this dress is fitted at the top and I am pear shaped. Didn't get to attend the event I rented it for but it is beautiful and I would def rent again. Customer service was great. Told them I didn't have a chance to wear it and they gave me a code. Fabric looks expensive, I am 5"4, 135 lbs and it hit me right above the knee. Would recommend high heels for shorter girls.

Loved everything about this dress!

I wore this dress to a black tie event and it was perfect. Based on some other reviews, I was a little worried it would be too big. I typically wear a 00 and wear a 32A, but this dress fit like a glove!! I wore a strapless bra with adhesive sides to give a little more support. With that, I didn't find the dress to run big in the chest at all. The front of this dress is simple but very elegant, and the back is stunning. It was the perfect length (right at the knee--I'm 5'2") and appropriate for a very formal event. I was so sad to send this dress back! If you're considering this dress, I highly recommend it! You won't be disappointed!

Comfortable and classy

Pro- The dress was beautiful to wear, comfortable to dance in and supportive where I didn't need to wear a bra. Cons- it was hard to sip by myself you will need some assistance. The hem on the skirt didn't seem to lay flat it was ironed incorrectly so it folded up.

Classy but fun

I wore this dress to my school's Barrister's ball. It was beautiful and fit perfectly, although I had a really hard time getting the zipper up (even when it was on the hanger). Also, the bottom kept flipping in a weird way which made it look like the hem was coming unsewn, which it wasn't. Overall, the dress worked out well and I got lots of compliments. The back is the best part. Tip: this dress would be beautiful with gunmetal shoes and clutch, if you can find them!

Great for formal black tie event if you don't want to wear long dress

I got this dress as a backup to a dress I ordered for a wedding whose backup size got ruined/was never returned. RTR graciously sent me a free dress at any cost (more or less than the one I ordered) in 2 sizes. Thankfully the one size that I did receive for the original dress I ordered ended up fitting me, as I felt this dress was a bit too formal for the wedding I was going to (cocktail, not black tie, attire). However it is a great quality dress, but may have been too poofy/"cupcakey" of a style dress for me.

Fit like a dream!

I did not want to take this dress off! I am 5'7 and the length was just above my knees. I was able to not wear a bra and feel secure. I have a pretty small waist so it fit perfectly but I can see how some reviewers said it was tight. My only complaint about this dress was the hem on the bottom. It needs to be repaired! Other than that, it was probably my favorite dress that I have ever rented!

Pockets and the back were my fave parts!

The fit and color were perfect for the wedding I attended. It's easy to dance around in and eat as much as you want! The pockets were definitely the icing on the cake - I almost didn't bring my purse because it wasn't needed! Definitely recommend this dress.

Love the back of this dress!

I rented this dress for a wedding and it was unforgettable. I received so many compliments and it fit me perfectly! I was nervous that it would be too long, since I'm only 5'2", however it came to my knees and looked perfect.

Loved!!! Accidentally wore the 8instead of the 6- guess that's what happens when you pack in a rush!

So many compliments - wore a stick on bra (pasties) and danced the night away Thought the skirt might be too full but it was perfect- wish it came in other colors!!

1st time renter, made my night!

The dress was perfect for the event. Being 5'10" I'm always afraid of wearing shorter dresses but this ones length was great hit me right above the knee. The hem on the size 6 was a little wonky, doesn't lay flat, but that didn't make a difference in the fit. I bought a special bra to go with it but ended up not needing one at all. (I am on the smaller side so it really would have just been for show). Totally made me comfortable the whole night and the pockets were icing on the cake for me.

Gorgeous dress--I wish it fit better!

I didn't end up wearing this dress because, although it fit in the waist, the straps were way too loose and flopped around on my back, making the neckline look funny. I think either my waist was too big or my torso was too short for this dress. I have worn a size 10 in other ML dresses, but this one was not cooperating. I really appreciate the RTR customer service for helping me out with the return!

Cute, classy, and comfy!

The overall fit of the dress was great. I loved the color, the beading, and the open back. There were a few minor issues I had with the dress. First, the beads kept popping off. When I first received the dress I looked at it and noticed that some of the beads were loose and by the time I made it to the wedding, I heard 3 of them fall to the floor. Next, I had to adjust the crisscross back several times because the straps in the back would creep up a little. When that would happen, it would create a gap in the neck area and look strange. Lastly, I didn't like that the dress had a high waist. This coupled with the flare in the dress, it made me feel like I looked fat. I have an hourglass figure and flare dresses don't look the best on me. I didn't feel 100% gorgeous in the dress, though I received many compliments. I probably wouldn't rent it again just because of that. However the dress itself is gorgeous, it just may not be the best fit for my body type.

Adorable dress with pockets!

Wore this as a bridesmaid dress to a summer wedding. Loved the fit and pockets. It took two people to pull up the faulty zipper so I could get into it. Other than that, it was a good experience. The thickness of the fabric hid any sweat stains from a June Savannah wedding sans AC. Recieved many compliments. Great dress!

So elegant! Received compliments at two different weddings.

Loved this dress! I don't usually wear poofy dresses, but I made an exception for this one, particularly because of the amazing back. The material is thick, but I surprisingly stayed pretty cool in the 85 degree weather. I wore this to two weddings (on the same day) and was able to wear at an afternoon church ceremony all the way through the after party. The only negatives were that the top was a little baggy in the chest/sleeve area and the beading decal in the center was very tight in the 0, so I had to go up to the 2. I usually wear a 0, but I was so happy I made that last minute decision!

Ended up unable to wear this dress

I ended up not being able to wear this dress. It was difficult to zip, and once zipped it fit well in the bodice,but the hem wouldn't lay properly and therefore was too long. Parts of the hem tucked under to give the dress volume shown in the photos, while other parts laid flat making the dress droop. Despite trying to iron the hem in place I couldn't make it all go the same way and it just looked messy. This dress was beautiful but seemed like the one I was sent had seen better days.

Amazing! I want to keep it!

This dress is amazing! So many compliments! It fits perfect! I normally wear a six and the six fit like a glove! You do have to press the bottom of the dress. I am a 36 DDD so I had to wear some kind of support. I took my bra and didn't clasp the back. The dress was tight enough that it didn't move at all! I'm super happy with this rental even though it wasn't the dress I had rented at first. I wanted to keep it!!!! Amazing dress!

Loved this dress!

The zipper gets caught right where the beads are at the waist. I put a tiny bit of soap on the zipper track and it zipped right up. You don't need to wear a bra; the material is forgiving enough to go without it for the open back. Overall, I loved this dress!

Perfect bridesmaid dress for a summer wedding

I rented this for a wedding I was in. We were able to pick our dresses so I got a few from RTR and hoped one would fit. This dress is so flattering and really comfortable. The cross back looks amazing and I can see the fit of the dress being flattering on many body types. I ordered the size 2 and it fit nicely. I recommend renting this for any formal event!

Elegant, special, and easy to wear!

Overall, I loved this dress - it was perfect split of elegant and special while still being fun and comfortable. Fit true to size. I'm 5'3", ~128, and 34B. The size 4 was just below my knees. The straps in back were not too long or to tall in neck in front. There was an extra half in chest area but did not feel too big. Only down side is the side zipper was very difficult to zip through beading (not because dress was too tight but due to beading).

Compliments all night long!

The 6 was a little tight around the beading but fit perfectly up top. Unfortunately, the pocket was ripped and the zipper seemed compromised. I wore the 8, though a little looser around the waist it was big in the straps, I had to keep tucking them down into the side of the dress. Customer service was wonderful making sure I was compensated for the damaged dress. I am looking forward to my next rental in a couple weeks!

Arrived on time

This dress was just as beautiful as in the picture and the plus is it having pocket. The zipper was very hard to pull up and down where the bead work is and I as super tight in that area despite the rest of the dr as fitting well. A sticky backless bra works well with this dress.

The dress was beautiful but arrived damaged.

The 6 fit well but was tough to zip up, because of the beading. There was a bead missing from the bodice and the hem did not lie properly. It wasn't aligned correctly and did this awkward flip. The dress also was very wrinkled in the back where the previous renter had sat on it, these were not wrinkles that would've fallen out over time, the wrinkles were bad. RTR offered to overnight me a new dress but being that it was New Year's Eve everything was picked over and there were no good options left. The did give me a full credit, but I was left scrambling for a new dress the day of the event. Also, the skirt is much fuller than the photos show, it was quite poufy.

KatieJanuary 1, 2016
I must have gotten the exact same size 6 dress because mine looked exactly the same at the bottom. It's disappointing that they wouldn't take this one out of the rotation after you complained!
NatalieJanuary 1, 2016
I would also second that! I had ordered the size 4 and the size 6. I ended up wearing the size 4 even though it was a bit snug because the size 6 was so wrinkled and awful looking just like that!

Dress is amazing. Zipper impossible!

The zipper is impossible to get over the beaded belt even when not worn. It's like the beading is sewn into the zipper. I easily fit into a 0 in another Monique dress, in this dress I needed help to get the 2 on. And it was just the waist, and it wasn't because it didn't fit. There is no give in the waist because of the beaded belt, and my straight figure made it that much more difficult. Going up to a 4 would have made it too big everywhere else though. Loved the color and the pockets, and the rest of the construction was luxurious, exactly what I'd expect from a Monique. I didn't want to take it off! Partly because it was so beautiful and partly because I was scared of the zipper! LOL, my husband was ready to get out the pliers!

Love love love this style!!!

This dress was fantastic! I wore it for a cocktail rehearsal dinner in Chicago and felt like I fit in perfectly. The front and length are conservative enough for the back to be a little more showy. I did use the 6, though I am usually a 4, because I'm pregnant and I think that pushed me up a size. I wore silver shoes, and nipple pasties. I see what people are talking about when they mention the sides gapping a bit, but it wasn't a huge problem for me as I'm about a C cup. Overall this was such a flattering dress and color, and I can't wait to have an excuse to wear a ball gown in this style!

Loved the back!!

This dress was sooo pretty! I especially loved the back. It worked perfectly for a formal fall wedding. Very nice structured fit. I wore "sticky boobs". I'm sure you could totally go braless too. Loved it. Wanted to rent it again for a wedding the following month... But then I realized that defeats the purpose of RTR.

My date and I received tons of compliments because we matched so well. I loved the open back!

The embellishments make the zipper really tricky. I rented a 2 and a 4 which is usually my size range and while I ended up fitting in the 4, I'd recommend sizing up just in case. Over all loved the dress. The open back was a fun/modern twist on a very classic style.
