I rented this dress for my city hall wedding ceremony! The back design is absolutely beautiful!
The dress fits perfectly, although I feel a little bit tight on my bust. It is perfect for my city hall wedding ceremony. Love it! It not only looks elegant but also a little bit sexy as well. For the color: the fabric pattern actually looks a little bit golden through reflection, not pure white. The lace won't make you feel uncomfortable. You wouldn't need a nubra at all! In fact, I wouldn't be able to fit in size 4 if I wore my nubra!

I was going to wear this as wedding reception dress, did not work chest area was very tight.
One size up would have been okay(size 8), but it never arrived.

Perfect for a bridal shower!
I got this dress as an option for my graduation party. It has a very structured bodice and beautiful lace. It was a bit longer on me than on the model (even though I'm close to 5"8. I think this dress would be prefect for a bridal shower or rehearsal dinner.

Runs small. Order up. Does not flatter
The dress itself is beautiful but it does not flatter the waistline at all. It's kind of awkward. It made me look like I did not have a waist. The size 10 fit but it was tight on the back and it made me look like I had back boobs at certain angles. I received lots of compliments but overall, I was really disappointed with it. I wish I ordered a backup dress.

Classic Dress for Wedding-Related Activities
Wore this dress to my rehearsal dinner - I was torn between the 4 and the 6, and went with the 4 as the 6 bunched a teeny bit more in the waist...whereas the 4 fit a bit tighter and therefore, less bunch. The dress is perfectly "bride-y" to wear to a rehearsal dinner, shower, etc. Received a bunch of compliments on the dress. The fabric is thick/sturdy enough that it's not flimsy and the lace is great quality - and the keyhole back is beautiful. The flowers on the front of the dress aren't actually a different color as they look in the picture- it was just the way the flash was reflecting off the material :)

I wore this dress for my bridal shower, and I loved it!
It fit well, and the material was thick enough and had structure, so no slip or bra needed for me. The dress came down to just above my knees. It does have a bit of sheen to the lace which reflects in some pictures, which I didn't realize before it arrived. Overall loved the dress!

this dress was perfect!
this dress fit exactly how i wanted it to! it was elegant and special...perfect for my rehearsal dinner the night before my wedding. everyone was raving how great my dress was! the lace on top was very feminine, but you need a bra with a very low back and low profile in front so it does not show through the lace.

Fantastic dress. Beautiful lace
This is a stunning dress. I wore this for a bridal luncheon. The lace does show just a tad bit of wear I am assuming due to dry cleaning. Very nice dress with pretty back. Perfect for the occasion.

The easiest thing I ever did!
I loved this dress! Wore it to my bridal shower and received so many compliments. The dress runs true to size.. I'm usually a 6 or 8 and ordered both and truly could have worn either. The material is very giving.. Super comfortable to sit down in too. I wore the 8 only bc it was the first one I tried on and figured since it fit the 6 would be too small.. Before returning I tried on the 6 out of curiosity and it fit perfect.

I wore this for my wedding, and felt gorgeous! It is the perfect dress for a "courthouse" wedding.
The fit runs small. I really felt like its not made for women with hips, which I have plenty of :) . Nevertheless it is elegant , yet sexy and I'd pick the same dress if I had to do it again.

Hung out with great friends
The fit and look of the dress is great. I love lace and so really had a good time wearing it. It is also very flattering/not tight and perfect for any body shape. The reason why I gave it 4/5 stars is that the lace bunches up in the front a bit and you have to keep fixing it every time you sit/stand. I don't think its a huge deal, but its something to note.

Great dress, Great friends, Great time!
I actually went to the RTR store in Henri Bendel and found this little gem! Ladies!!! Did you know that you can walk in and browse available dresses and leave same day with a dress?! It's amazing. I wore this to Le Diner En Blanc- NYC and it was perfect! It was supportive up top (I usually need to wear a bra!) and was able to go braless. There's also some light boning to keep things/you in place! haha It does run a bit small (I usually wear a 6) and the 8 was almost too small for me. The 10 was too big though, so I just went with the 8... probably should've worn Spanx with it, but it was fine, really. The lining rode up just a tiny bit when I would sit and I felt the need to adjust it a few times throughout the evening, but it wasn't too worrisome. I would definitely rent this dress again (though maybe in one of the other fun colors!) As far as moving in it, it's super comfortable, even though it is a fitted dress. I hit the dance floor hard in it and didn't have any issues. So happy with my choice for this event!

Very elegant, but unflattering for me
The lace on this dress is beautiful, and it fit, but the stomach area is very unforgiving. If I had a support system underneath maybe it wouldn't have mattered. I think this dress would look perfect on a size 8 or below. Sorry, no picture

PERFECTION!! The Perfect Dress For Wedding Related Events!!
I wore this dress for some of my engagement pictures, taken on the Brooklyn Promenade and Brooklyn Bridge. They came out beautifully, thanks in part to this dress! I LOVED the boning/corset of the dress (no Spanx or bra necessary!), the sweetheart neckline, and the lace sleeves. My only complaint was that it felt too long - I wished the hem was at least several inches shorter. Also, although it fit perfectly in the waist, the neck felt tight when I zipped the dress and hooked the top (and I'm very small chested). You may wish to size up. The color was beautiful and the dress looked both sophisticated and feminine with a hint of sexiness all at the same time! I wish I did not have to give it back!!!

Looked and felt like a million bucks!
Wore this dress for my wedding brunch and had people raving! Was truly stunning! I wore it with a nubra - as you can't wear it with a traditional bra, but the front of the dress and the boning are well-made it was totally comfortable to be backless. I'm a little bit smaller in the waist with fuller hips and thighs so the 4 was just a teensy bit tight across my thighs but nothing uncomfortable or noticeable. In fact, when I tried on the 6 my new hubby said absolutely not - you have to wear the four. :) Rent it, you won't be sorry!

The dress turned out to be great and very comfortable! I got many compliments wearing it!
The fit is a bit too tight at the chest but I was still able to fit into my regular size. My only complaint was that there was a tear in the back, but luckily it wasn't too visible.

Dress is lovely, but meant for someone taller. Length was below knees and felt too conservative (and I am not flashy). Recommend for a tall girl.

I wore this dress for my 10 year wedding renewal.
I loved the dress from the minute I opened up the box. The material was so soft and the back of the dress was amazing. All I can say is I felt so beautiful and elegant.

being with friends and family and having the perfect outfit
Got a TON of compliments on this dress, felt very elegant and sweet in it. Perfect for any bridal occasion. I wore it to my rehersal, rehersal dinner and welcome reception party on Friday night. Went perfect with my Kate Spade ivory wedding shoes that I got wear and break in a bit. I got the 4 and the 6. The 4 was just a little tight for my comfort and the 6 was still plenty fitted in the right areas not to feel too big. Only con is with lace it does does wear easily so this dress didn't have the brand new feel but I suppose that is typical with this type of service. Not sure how often they restock them but this did have plenty of wear left in it. Doesn't need a ton of jewelry. I wore a large pearl necklace and white earrings, stlll fairly simple.

Beautiful lace, ran small though!
I rented this as a backup for my rehearsal dinner. The dress is beautiful, but it was a lot more formal looking that I thought it would be. It's also very tight- I'm a pear shape so it just didn't work for me. The material is beautiful though! I just would've needed at least one more size up to make it work.

My guests!
I rented this dress for my wedding reception we had after our destination wedding. I ordered a size 2 and 4 since some dresses I have a hard time fitting my bottom half. The 4 fit my hips well but the top was too big so I went with the 2. It was a little snug at first, but as the night went on the dress stretched a tiny bit and had more give to it. No need to wear a bra as the top was snug enough. I got complainants all night on my dress and so happy I decided on this particular one.

Gorgeous dress, lace unique, tight in chest
Wore this dress for my rehearsal dinner. It ran small - I'm normally a 6, but was down to a 4 for my wedding (according to every other clothing item I'd been wearing lately, and my 25 inch waist measurement for my wedding gown), but for this dress, ended up wearing the 6 because the 4 was skin tight. The length was perfect on me - just hit my knee, super elegant. The back cut-out was lovely and feminine (note: the lace curled under a bit so might be worth it to run a steamer over before putting it on). There was a slight rip in the dress I got under the armpit, but I don't think anyone could tell. The lace is definitely more pronounced than in the pictures - when the light hits it, it looks almost multi-faceted. Very beautiful and unique. Also, it was extremely (!!!) tight in the chest, so if you're the least bit busty, take this as fair warning - I couldn't wear a bra, and definitely had smushed-boob-syndrome all night. Overall, gorgeous dress, perfect for rehearsal dinner, if you have the right body type.

FABULOUS dress for my rehearsal dinner!
I rented this dress for my rehearsal dinner and was very happy with how it fit. While I do think it runs just a little small, the 4 looked great on me (and this is my normal size). The lace detail, especially the keyhole back, is incredible. I received countless compliments about this dress. I definitely recommend it!

Beautiful dress for an elopement or bridal shower
Used this dress for a elopement styled shoot. The "bride" normally wears an 8, but had to wear the backup size 10. The dress overall, was very pretty. The dresses we received were a little worn looking, due to wear and tear, and it tends to crease under the bust area, so we keep having the pull the dress down to smooth it out. Great dress for an elopement or bridal shower.

Great dress for a city hall wedding!
Definitely order up in size. The dress itself was gorgeous; however, you could tell this one had been worn quite a few times before. The lace sheath had obviously been rubbed to where you could see light stringy "fuzz". Luckily I wasn't at an event or in front of a crowd or I may have been a little self conscious... But that's the great part of getting married at city hall! This particular dress will probably need to be retire d soon, but Overall I thought it was still beautiful.

Wore the dress for engagement photos. Was stunning.
Was a beautiful dress. Fit smaller than I thought. Usually wear a 2 in dresses, had to definitely wear the 4 in this and was tight. But okay to wear for a few hours for photos. Detailing is beautiful.

Beautiful lace detail! Highly recommend this dress!
I wore this dress for my wedding rehearsal and I absolutely loved wearing it!! I received so many compliments on how great it looked and I really felt amazing. As mentioned in other reviews - no bra needed - this sucker holds you in! **warning** this dress looks SO much better in person and on you than on the model shown. It's a must wear for rehearsals, formal affairs, etc.

Lovely, tight on the midriff.
I am an hourglass, 5'2" that usually wears a size 0 or 2, but since a few people said to size up, I ordered 2 and 4 for backup. The 2 was too small--I couldn't bring the two sides of the top clasp close enough, and the 4 fit up top, but below the natural waist gets rather tight. I consider my hip area to be small in comparison to my chest area, so the fit was a surprise to me. I even bought Spanx to see if it would look better, but did not have time to call and try to replace it with a size 6. I ended up wearing one of my own lace dresses instead. Pros - beautiful material Cons - not a good fit, not enough time to exchange

Private family wedding ceremony
I wore this dress for my catholic ceremony. This dress was everything I thought it would be and more. My now husband loved seeing me come down the aisle in this dress. Fabric and detail of this dress was perfect. I'll always have a special place in my heart for this dress.

This dress was perfect! It was well made, the back detailing was gorgeous and the length was modest.
There were many pros of this dress. It fit well, was made of quality material, had a modest longer length and had a gorgeous back detail. The lining was thick enough that I didn't need to wear a bra. I would recommend wearing spanks or control top panty hose as it is body hugging. The only con I can think of, and this didn't really bother me very much, is that the lace rode up so that the lining underneath was exposed. It was an easy fix, and hardly noticeable.

Adorable! But runs SUPER SMALL!
I am typically a size 2 and ordered a size 2 and 0 as a back up in case I lost weight , but my goodness! It runs SO SMALL! I had to contact RTR and have them overnight me a size 4 and 6 and when it arrived the 4 still didn't fit so I had to wear the size 6. It worked out in the end but I would definitely order at least one size up. Enjoy!

Classic and unforgettable!!
Stunning lace dress with dynamic back. Tons of compliments at my rehearsal dinner! Only negative is the lace looked worn giving away that it wasn't a "new" dress. I decided it looked "vintage" and rock it anyways!
