Beautiful but some flaws
Armpit area was a little loose and it was a little short. It's also kind of plain and wrinkles easily but overall a great dress. It has pockets and I could eat allot without it showing. I definitely recommend a chunky necklace to spice it up

Beautiful waist and back detail. A Stunner.
I rented this as a backup and unfortunately it was a bit too snug at the beaded waistline. The fabric is beautiful, a bit on the heavier side but makes for a great tailored look. I may try this one again some other time in a size larger. Oh....bonus, it has pockets! Love that.

The open back was my favorite part of the dress :)
Now I had to go with a 6L because there were no longer any 6R available and I am only 5'2" but I made it work for me with my 6 inch tall high heels. Having the dress puff out also made it easier for me to walk in it. The dress was very pretty but I didn't like how it puffed so much at my stomach area. Looking back at my photos, I felt as if I looked pregnant or a little bigger than I usually am but I loved the open back of this dress. It made the simpleness of the dress look beautiful <3

Did you wear a bra with this and if so what type?
DianeDecember 21, 2013
I wore my Nu Bra from VS
KAdairJanuary 9, 2014
Did you feel like the 6R would have been fine with regular heels? I don't think i could walk in 6inch!!
DianeJanuary 26, 2014
Yes, I feel like 6r would have been fine with 4-5 inch heels. I wear pretty high heels most times.

I felt like a celebrity.
As soon as I saw this dress I knew I had to wear it. At the end of the night I didn't want to take it off. I got so many compliments I considered buying this dress. As for fit, it was a bit loose, especially in the bust. I only got one size, but had it been available I probably would have worn the 0R. The waist was okay, not gaping, but definitely not snug. Length was perfect with 3 inch heels. Overall it looked great and I loved it!

Everything came on time
This dress fits incredibly small and I ended up having to buy a dress in San Francisco on the day of the event. We also ordered two dresses for my daughter. One was too small but the other was absolutely wonderful.

Great, classy dress! I got a ton of compliments on it.
back is longer than front, so it trails a little. The underarm was loose slightly with the waist area very snug. Perfect for girls with a smaller waist line who have a bust.

Not a good fit...
While this dress ran true to size, it was a very awkward fit...I have a fairly large chest and it was a risky move on my part to try and rent this one with the back the way it was, but it was so pretty I just had to give it a shot. Unfortunately, the straps were awkward and uncomfortable and even though it was surprisingly not tight through the bust, there was a lot of extra fabric under the arms that made me look like I had wings. Tall, thin girls would be the best for this dress, I think. I felt that it made me look large and it was definitely too short to wear with heels.

Several women (a couple strangers to me) commented on how beautiful and classy the dress was.
The backless dress made the undergarment choices a little tricky. A hard dress to wear for a bigger busted girl. The hem was ripped so I had to take it to a seamstress the day of the event. It also required pressing...it has too much fabric to do yourself. Factor that into your delivery day.

The whole process was so easy!
I wore this for a black tie work event. The dress was great and I loved the pockets! It fit well and made me look skinny. I received a lot of compliments throughout the night. However, it did end up a little short so had to end up wearing flats. Overall, will definitely be renting again, the process is so easy.

I absolutely LOVED this dress. I felt amazing in it and got so many compliments all night long. It was the perfect length with heels. I didn't wear a bra, just pasties, and didn't feel like I needed anything. Amazing dress, I would wear again in a heartbeat!

This dress is stunning! Throughout the evening I received tons of compliments.
The back dipped down because it was a little to big on me and the bust area was a little large as well. However the dress itself is immaculate! The style is simplistic but it's very Audrey Hepburn-esque. This dress looks best with a bib silver collar diamond necklace with chunky stud earrings.... I HIGHLY recommend this dress.

Needed to use tape to smooth out the front. Zipper was tought and needed help, but other than that it was perfect!

What took me so long??!!! RTR is a no brainer!
This dress is classic, simple, elegant and I LOVED wearing it. I got tons of compliments in it and I was super comfortable all night. I wore 6 inch heels with a bit of a platform and the dress hung about 1/2 inch from the floor in the front and slightly longer in the back- it was perfect and had the look of a train without too much fabric trailing behind me. Because the beaded waistline added a bit of drama I didn't feel the need to accessorize at all- I just wore simple diamond studs. I loved the heavy fabric of this dress too- it looked very expensive and draped beautifully. I opted not to wear a bra and was comfortable because the fabric didn't show a thing. Mostly I ABSOLUTELY loved the pockets- I kept my iPhone on me at all times- it was ideal!!

I went to a conservative black tie event in DC. Great dress for the occasion.
The dress was great. No way you can wear a bra, so something to think about. The top portion was a bit loose. Overall a great dress. My first RTR rental, and am convinced I will do it again!

A Fun Night of Simple Elegance.
I've ordered a few dresses I've really liked from RTR, but this one has taken the lead as my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE. It may look like a fairly simple black ball gown, but once you put it on your realize it is anything but. The fabric is heavy, and perfect for a snow filled night. I wore this to a black tie affair, and even in the midst of a sea of black dresses this one stood out, from the pockets to the adorable back detail. It took a couple of pulls to zip up, but I was braless and comfortable all night. Definitely, a must rent.

The dress was beautiful and I had several comments on it!
I usually wear a size 4 but wore the 2. I don't have a large chest so it worked better for me so the top would fit well. The 4 did not feel too large, would suggest it for a larger chested woman. Also, I'm 5'5" and wore the Regular length and had to wear flats (not a bad thing) but heels made the dress too short. Overall, the dress was beautiful and I loved wearing it. I love the thicker material and the beading, and the back of the dress is unique. I highly recommend this dress!

Lovely dress for a formal event!!
Love, love, love this dress! I rented this dress for a formal work dinner, and it was the perfect choice! I rented the 6 & 8 and the 6 fit perfectly. The zipper was a bit tricky but nothing my husband couldn't handle. The dress fit right in for the dinner, and was very comfortable the entire evening. Usually I'm wary about longer dresses given my height, but with heels this dress was the perfect length. Would highly recommend this dress!!

The fabric and fit of this dress made it feel very couture and standout among many black dresses.
It was a snug fit especially in the bodice, but worked well for my body type (small chest). The zipper was a little hard to get up around the jeweled belt, but I was able to zip it alone. It wouldn't have been a problem if I had someone help me. The length was perfect for me at 5'7" wearing modest heels.

This dress was gorgeous, but the front of top fit a little strangely on me. There was just a bit too much room. The fabric was a great weight for winter and I LOVED the pockets.

Gorgeous, comfortable dress!
I rented this dress along with two others for a military ball I attended. The back on this dress was what convinced me to wear it. It was an incredibly stunning dress and very easy to accessorize. I used an adhesive bra so I wouldn't have any straps in the back showing. Super comfy dress. I would definitely recommend to others.

Backup dress- top did not fit
The top was far too big to be wearable, and I'm not sure going a size down would have fit my hips. It was unfortunate - it's a beautiful dress on.

With the bad weather, I had gotten an email that my dress might not arrive on time but it did!
I ordered the 2 and 4 just in case and the 2 was perfect. The seam in the pocket near the zipper had come out, but I able to do a quick fix. Other than that, great dress. The regular length was perfect with my height and four inch heels.

Really hard to wear.
I knew this was a risky dress for me as I have a really large bust. It's impossible to wear with a bra. Stil, if you have a smaller bust, the top would be waaaaaaaaaaaaay too big. I'm not sure who the ideal body shape is, but it's not for busty ladies and it seems like it would be difficult for flatter ladies as well.

I did not end up wearing this dress to my event.
I rented this dress for my husbands military ball, once I received the dress it didn't fit properly. This dress would be great for a tall/lengthy women or girl. There seemed to be a lot of fabric at the back of the dress and it fit loosely on the sides and in the bust area (I am a 36C). I wish that it had fit better as its a great dress overall.

I received compliments all night long in this dress! I wore it to a formal event at my law school.
The back of the dress hits perfectly in the middle of your back. It is a little weird to get on and off. I probably would have worn the 0R if the chest area was bigger. The waist was a little loose but no one could tell. Being only 5'2'' it was a little long and I had to wear 5" heels. But that would be my only complaint!

Classic, but young and sophisticated!
My daughter chose this dress for her friend's debutante ball. She fell in love with it after seeing a photo of the criss-cross back. The dress was absolutely gorgeous! The fabric was luxurious, the fit (with exception of a little room near arm opening) and design were simply perfection. And she loved the pockets! We took some formal photos before the ball to use for something later; and I'm so glad we did! She looked beautiful and was excited to get such an amazing designer dress to wear.

I loved this dress so much and got tons of compliments! Perfect for black tie event.
This dress fit me great on the top, but was a smidge too short so I definitely could not wear heels. I ended up not even having to wear a bra because the top was so tight (I wore the smaller size) and the material was very thick. It was so comfortable and I really felt glamorous. I'd rent again in a heartbeat!

Beautiful fit! So many Compliments.
This dress is perfect for a formal wedding or dinner party. I love the back of it. I had a lot of trouble zipping past the beaded waist and some beads were missing, but other than that I loved it. The pockets are the best part. I got compliments all night.

Fizzled
I rented this dress and normally an 8L but the top was still kinda big. The zipper was impossible to deal with and at 5-11" it was way too short in the front- it came up to my ankles so no thank you. Also the torso part was super short on me. Not flattering at all.

I rented this for a black tie wedding and was disappointed in when it didn't fit. The dress was too long for me and the top of the dress was too small for my broader shoulders. Wish it would've worked out!

The dress is beautiful but not perfect. It's designed for taller slender women with big busts.
I'm only 5'2, so a petite version of this dress would have had a better fit in the waistline, which was a little too long causing excess dress/puffiness on the sides. My bra size is 32DDD, and the top of the dress was nice and roomy - not tight. However, I must wear a bra and this bra doesn't work well with bras. The fabric is beautiful and flows comfortably. I recommend this dress for women that are at least 5'5 with small or perky breasts that do not require a bra.
