Beautiful open back and both brand new!
I loved wearing this dress for a fancy office holiday party. I am petite so it came to my knees but it tapered enough to make a nice silhouette. Warning: you cannot wear a normal bra, but can go bra-less as the material is heavy enough.

AMAZING BACK! Lace detail was gorgeous
At first I wasn't in love with this dress, but I needed a navy dress for my friends wedding and I ordered pretty last minute so this is what I got. I ordered the 2 and 4 and honestly could have gone with either one, but I chose the 4 because it was a little loose near my hips (so I could dance more freely). I can't even remember how many compliments I got. People said I looked so classy and I started feeling that way. It was a very modest dress with the neckline and the length and I loved that, especially for the wedding. But the back, oh my goodness, the back!! It was so beautiful and really made the dress for me.

The dress fit great and went well with the other bridesmaid gowns
Loved the fit of the dress, but it was a little roomy uptop like it had been stretched out. (I am a 38DDD) The lace was beautiful and I loved the diamond cutout in the back. I got so many compliments on it.

Love this dress- wish I owned it. You can't wear a bra- but it's very structured and works anyway. Loved it.

Gorgeous photos! I just rented this dress for an upcoming event. We are about the same size. I was wondering, what did you wear under the dress? Did you try a backless bra and if so, would you mind sharing which one?

I felt classy and sexy at the same time!
I rented this dress for a wedding, it was fantastic! I was worried I'd need to figure out what kind of bra to wear -- I didn't end up needing to wear one at all. It ran a little bit big in the waist on me, I ordered sizes 6 and 8, wore the 6, but may have been been better suited for a 4. Regardless I felt great about the fit! Easy to dance in, great length. Got a ton of compliments, and definitely recruited a few new RTR customers at the same time :) Will definitely rent this dress again.

Flattering and comfortable!
I loved this dress! It was super flattering, and fit true-to-size. Since I have a curvier figure, I was especially happy to find that it fit well on the top and on the bottom, without being too tight anywhere. The only issue I had was that the lace neckline would not lie flat in the front - I'm not entirely sure why. But regardless, I got lots of compliments!

It was beautiful, but it didn't fit...
The dress is amazing--the lace is beautiful, the fabric is silky and there's a little bit of boning in the stomacher, but it was so long--past my shins. It was loose and baggy around the lace at the top because I kept pulling it up to try to get it to fall in the right spot. Definitely for taller women.

Beautiful fabric and a nice fit
The dress is super comfortable and the open back is great touch. The neck line would bunch a bit in the front, I think because my shoulders were just a bit too wide for the dress and the material couldn't fit over my shoulders. The dress was perfect for a winter wedding!

Beautiful and Elegant Dress!
I wore this dress to my brother-in-law's December wedding in Florida. The dress is classy but not boring with it's lace detail and open back. The length was also suitable for the event - hitting just below the knee. Great dress overall!

Overall, Loved the dress!
The dress came on time, the size 8 worked better for me. A few things: It was a little tight in the chest (was afraid of bending too much or else popping a hook in the back), the length of the dress IMO was too long (came down past my knees) and lastly the hips were big. But besides the fit being a little off, the dress was beautiful. I loved the color, i loved the lace across the shoulders and back. I received a lot of compliments on it. I recommend for someone who is taller and maybe fuller in the bust and hips versus just bust.

The bride's favorite dress! Numerous compliments from others in the bridal party. Felt beautiful.
Fit was great. The top part around my collarbone was a little loose, but overall it fit true to size. Lace was beautiful. Can't wait to order from RTR for my next big event!

Cannot wait to rent this one again!
This dress was stunning and so comfortable to wear. I could certainly have worn the 12, but I am VERY self-conscious to wear things that are too tight around my hips (I have very wide hips). I received compliments all day/night from friends and strangers. The reception lasted until 2:30 a.m. and I danced nearly the whole time without any problems! We did a lot of swing dancing and even some flips and this dress was the perfect length for all of that...short enough to be sexy, but not too short to worry while dancing up a storm. I would recommend this dress for any event that is semi-formal to formal. The wedding I wore it to was fairly casual, but I never felt overdressed. And it worked perfectly without a bra (even after all that dancing).

Such a classic style, but the open back makes it exciting!
Fit wonderfully, Could maybe have gone down a size, but always better to be slightly loose than too tight. The boning created nice shape and lines, and the open lace at the neckline and open back were really pretty. Got tons of compliments!

So many people complimented it. Fit wonderfully and ended up buying it after!
Wonderful high neckline, but the open back makes it not so conservative. The corseted seaming on the bodice is slimming and helps to give the dress a nice shape. Perfect for a work event.

I love this dress! Classy, elegant and fun!
I received so many compliments on this dress! It was perfect for a wedding. Just like many of the other reviews stated, the color is a dark navy. The listing on RTR made it almost look black. I was also a bit nervous with the cut out back what kind of bra to wear. I wore a nude strapless bra and pushed the back of the bra down a bit under the back of the dress- it worked perfectly! Great dress that I am sad to send back!

Fit great and structure of dress was very slimming!
Had to go bra-less for this dress, my strapless bra kept peeking through the back. But the dress had enough structure that I didn't really need the bra anyway.

Exactly what I wanted!
This dress was amazing for my law school formal event. It was exactly what I was hoping for and I honestly can't believe how perfect it was! I got a size 10 and 12 because, depending on the designer, I wear either. The 12 fit like a glove and I felt like it flattered all the right places! I was nervous about the open back since I have a larger bust and knew I was going to have to go without a bra, but the material is so thick that no one had any idea and it was incredibly comfortable!! I only gave it 4 stars because I had some trouble with the top back clasps. There are three clasps, and the bottom one was broken when I received the dress. Not the end of the world, I felt like it was noticeable but my friends said it wasn't. But the middle clasp kept coming undone and at one point, a big gust of wind popped the top clasp open. I was seconds away from giving everyone quite an unexpected show, but eventually my friend was able to squeeze them tight enough that they stayed for the rest of the night. The color is much more navy than the picture and worked really well with some nude and red accessories. It was a gorgeous color, gorgeous dress and I received SO many compliments! I think I even recruited some new RTR users. I am seriously going to look into purchasing this dress I loved it so much! Thanks RTR for a great first experience! Can't wait to rent again.

The fit was perfect. The dress had no issues with it. If I had a bigger chest, I would have had to wear the 6. Love this dress so much, I will probably rent it again, or maybe try it in another color.

Elegant, classy and flattering
I wore the size 4, which is my usual size and it fit well. No need to wear a bra, as the dress bodice provides coverage and support. The body of the dress has very little give, where other lace dresses I've worn tend to have a little more stretch. This was the perfect dress for an evening wedding - classy, elegant, and easy to accessorize. Wore the Plantation Earrings by Nicole Miller and they complemented the dress nicely.

Wore this to see Wicked and loved it. Perfect for the occasion. Fit pretty close to size, maybe a bit small. Great fit, lots of compliments from total strangers. There were a few picks in the lace, but I expected that with it being lace. Returning was super easy. Would love to own this dress!

Compliments from everyone from the bartenders to bride!
This dress was great! It looked great in photos & I got so many compliments all night. I think I turned half the wedding guests on to RTR! I've recently lost a little weight so the 12 was a little large, especially in the neck area, it was just a little bit big. But it was comfortable enough around the waist area to easily dance all night and I don't think others noticed. For a lace dress, both sizes I received were in great condition, I didn't notice any snagging/pilling/tears in the fabric anywhere. My only advice, especially for large chested women like myself, make sure you have a good backless & strapless bra! I found myself frantically rushing to Nordstrom that morning for one that worked with the dress.

My favorite lace dress (of many) at the wedding :)
Pros: beautiful navy blue color, lovely lace, sexy back + conservative front, no need for a bra (for my small-ish bust), slim fit shows off your figure. Cons: it's fairly long - it reached the middle of my knees, which I liked, but may be a detractor for some; high neck - I shouldn't have bothered with a necklace, in hindsight; surprisingly wide shoulder width - I typically find that my shoulders are too broad for many dresses, but surprisingly it felt like there was a little extra material in this dress, so the neck didn't always sit flat. All in all, though, I loved this dress!

Pretty dress but runs large.
This dress was received new with tags! This dress ran large. For this review on size please note that at the time of the rental, my overall size was bigger than it shows in my profile now. I was probably more around 170-175lbs, 34DD, a size 12 and slightly thicker in the mid-section from a pregnancy earlier in the year. The dress is a nice dark navy blue and the quality of the dress is nice. It was a very pretty dress, but with the style and fit too big, it felt matronly looking. If it had fit better, I don't think this would have been my first impression. A "two thumbs up to RTR" side note: RTR's customer service is absolutely amazing. This dress was sent to me as one of several replacements when my original order was not going to get to me in time (weather and shipments) for an out of town wedding. When I realized this, I promptly called RTR's customer service and got Claire. Claire is an angel. My first panic-stricken thoughts were, "How was I going to find a replacement in one conversation with somebody who didn't know me or my body? It had taken me, in a longer than planned state of recovery post pregnancy body, several weeks of indecisiveness to make the initial rental!!!" Claire spent lots of time and patience with me pouring over available dresses giving her suggestions and receiving my numerous vetos. I ended up with multiple replacements that were sent overnight to my hotel to ensure I'd have a dress to wear.

very nice dress but not best fir for athletic body type
This dress is very classy and flattering. It was also very appropriate for my event - a rather conservative work related formal function. However it is not the best fit for my body type. I am athletic and larger on top than on the bottom. So the dress was bit loose in the hips, fit well in the waist but was very tight across the ribcage. It has no stretch, making it a bit uncomfortable for me. But it still looked great on.

The dress worked beautifully for a charity gala. It was both flattering and comfortable. I was able to walk the silent auction tables, sit for the program, and dance to Miss Diana Ross singing.

Beautiful!
I rented the 10 and 12 but ultimately choose the 12. I knew I would be dancing a lot. This dress is classy, sexy, and comfortable. My only issue was the corset that I wore underneath kept poking out. I have a large chest and there wasn't enough support to make me feel comfortable. I will def rent this dress again in the other colors!!!

I wish they had had this in the 10! It was gorgeous and perfect, but I had to wear the back up dress
Because of a tarnished back up dress, I was sent two different dresses in two different sizes. This was my backup dress and was a size too big! The dress is GORGEOUS though so I hope to wear it to my next event in my actual size! Love this dress!

Loved the lace detailing!
This dress was everything I was hoping for. It fit perfectly and the lace was gorgeous. I was getting compliments on the dress all night. My only note is to make sure you secure the red hanger strings (not sure of the technical term...) inside of the dress because they did pop out a couple of times throughout the night and were very noticeable due to the color.

Boning makes for unflattering silhouette
This dress was my first choice for an evening wedding. I wanted to love it because the back is absolutely gorgeous, but even with a strapless bra for some additional umph, I looked flat as a board. I tried to size up to fix the problem, but then it was a bit to baggy around my hips. This just might not be the best choice for petite, curvier girls.

Amazing customer service. Despite some delivery hurdles, I will absolutely use RTR again.
Gorgeous dress for a black tie wedding. I received tons of compliments and was totally comfortable all night, even in 85 degree heat. You don't need a bra if you're small chested like me. This dress was totally fabulous and I would absolutely rent it again.
