So many compliments and so flattering!
The fit is good, I'm not a super curvy girl, but this dress fit like a glove and hid all those problem areas. There is boning in the bodice which is why you should order a size up. I didn't wear a bra because of the open back, and it still held it all in. I should also note that I am a tall, 6 foot woman. When I sat down, it was almost scandalous ;)

I felt like a princess. This dress was beautiful, classy, elegant, and had a pop of sexy.
I am pear shaped, so I went with the larger size to make it looser on the stomach area. Both dresses fit and we're beautiful! It fits like a glove and is the best dress I have ever worn.

RTR always come through for me!
This dress was too big for me but the 18 wasn't available and the 16 was slightly too small in my chest (40dd). But this dress was so classy but still fun and young with the back out. I loved it. It was really big on me. I had to safety pin it. But I loved the dress and the RTR process. Always on time and great quality. The clothing looks brand new.

Great for busty women
My 40DDD chest is the largest part of my body, and this dress worked for me. It was very hard to find a bra that fit with this dress, I ended up going to a bridal intimates shop and buying an expensive strapless corset that I'm sure I'll wear again, so it was worth it. I would recommend doing a lot of research and looking at the comments and body types of them women who wore the dress before you! I don't see how this dress could have worked with someone who has a small chest, as the top was baggy on me and I held it up with garment tape. I would have liked to try on a smaller size, but I'm not sure how it would have worked in the hips. It's a very dark navy, almost black and has a few small pulls and pills because of the lace. I didn't mind, but someone else might.

I was going to wear this for a wedding, but it was too large
This dress is a beautiful navy, not black like I thought. The dress was too large on the top, and was sagging over my shoulders. I had to return it, but I wish it would have worked out for me!

The event was great, but returning the dress was a problem.
So, Great event, great dress, fit well. Returning the dress was the problem. I dropped into a fedex drop box at a staples store the NEXT DAY. I didn't think about it again, UNTIL I got a $400 bill from rent the runway saying I had returned the dress 14 days late. So, needless to say I freaked out and called them. So, they investigated and eventually credited my card, but my word to the wise is be extremely careful about drop boxes and verify that they are picked up regularly.

Great, fun dress!
Beautiful dress. I have a bigger bust, so I had to wear the size up. Then the beautiful lace up top a little loose and so the shoulder/back kept slipping, but it wasn't enough to make me not like the dress. The one cautionary tale is that the back of the dress comes a bit low for my taste. Other than that, I loved the dress and got a lot of compliments on it. The pictures here don't do it justice, in my opinion. Great for a wedding!

I received so many compliments on this dress. It's a knockout look.
While it fit me well in my waist, the top was big on me. Even with a push up strapless, I had to keep adjusting the top the bra wouldn't show and the top would stay in place. My bra was often seen from the hole in the back and my friends would adjust me. You might want to pin your bra in place to avoid the headache.

Wedding at Pinehurst
Bottom fit true to size- lace doesn't have much give, but it is very flattering on a curvy figure. I was comfortable and on the dance floor all night! the top was a bit big- I wound up wearing it more off the shoulder- because the clasps kept coming undone if I didn't- still looked great. highly recommend.

Comfortable and classic. A little big in the chest.
This dress was so comfortable and the lace was soft. It contoured my body in all the right places and had such a classic style that was totally me. The top was a bit big and I wasn't able to wear a bra since the back of the dress goes below the bra line, but because of the dark navy color and nice lining, no one was able to notice! Paired with a chunky pearl necklace and nude pumps to keep it simple.

It fit nicely but was a little loose, so it slipped down in the back. I was constantly pulling it up so my bra didn't show.

Beautiful but needs fashion tape
I ordered both the 16 and 18 after hearing that the dress ran small. I almost regret sizing up because the neckline and back were somewhat large on me, and I kept having to pull the dress up in the back so that my bra didn't show. I think I should have either sized down or worn fashion tape, but that's not the dress' fault. It is a beautiful dress, a very dark midnight that photographs as black. The silhouette was very flattering on my curves and I was able to wear a normal strapless bra. I would highly recommend it - but encourage getting your size and one size up, as others have mentioned.

Had to bring the back out!
The dress is obviously worn out but it did its job. I had issues with the back of the dress (the opening kept dropping). I would wear again if they got a fresh one. Overall I would recommend this dress for anyone!

Beautiful and Comfortable Dress Perfect for Wedding.
Dress ran true to size. Was comfortable, and the color was a gorgeous navy; received a lot of compliments throughout the evening. The dress needed some adjusting throughout the night in the bust area, but nothing that was too annoying. I definitely recommend this dress.

I received many compliments on how beautiful this dress was! The fabric was very comfortable!
I originally ordered this dress in a non-plus size of 14 and it was too small (I am in between sizes). I ordered it in the size 16W for a different event, it ended up fitting great except for around my shoulders. The lace sleeves were too big on me and kept sliding down my shoulders all night which was a little irritating. The rest of the dress fit fantastic! I loved the navy color and it was the perfect style for my event.

The dress fit OK, but was huge across the shoulders on me. Length was good. It had an awkward gap up top so i opted out.

Effortlessly Elegant!
I found that this dress ran true to size. I ordered the 16 and 18 and found the top on the 18 to be way too big. I wear a B cup and had a little trouble filling out this dress. Because of the large top the lace sleeves acted more as a shaw on me, but I kinda liked that look better anyway. This dress is a beautiful navy, even though the picture looks black! I felt beautiful and my family didn't even recognize me! This dress hides imperfections while still making you feel sexy and elegant. Would highly recommended!

Stunning dress that will gets tons of compliments
I rented this dress for a day time wedding and it was absolutely perfect. So comfortable! It does run a tad small so I recommend ordering a size up just to be safe. A backless bra is also necessary since the back is so open. I received endless praise on the dress and I will absolutely rent this dress again!

I rented this to wear to the high school prom that my husband and I were chaperoning.
It fit a bit small as others said. The fashion tape came in very handy to help the lace stay in place. I wore a sticky cup bra that worked well.

The dress looks great on the model but didn't look good on me.
I have a rather large bust, and I almost always fit in an 18W. I ordered the 20W, tried in on, and it fit very tight around the bust. The sleeves were way to big around the shoulders and I wore it almost as a boat neck. I am a size 44 DDD and wore a strapless bra and kept having to have my fiance pull the dress up in the back so my bra wouldn't show. I wish it fit better!

Class and elegant dress with a twist of trend. I enjoyed wearing this dress for an evening wedding.
Fit was pretty spot on. The bust line was slightly roomy but a sturdy strapless bra assisted with filling out my shape.

Beautiful dress, unfortunately wasn't able to wear it.
This dress runs small FOR SURE. I normally wear a size 16, and it was way too small. They did not have this dress in an 18 for me to try, so I can't say how the two would differ. It was very tight from the stomach down, and almost loose in the chest area (I will add that I have wider hips, so that is always a trouble area for me). The dress its self is beautiful, and the open back is in a flattering area. Unfortunately I don't have the ideal body shape for this dress so I wasn't able to wear it.

The back of this dress is unforgettable. #showstopper
This dress was beautiful! The detail was gorgeous and the back was so unique. The sizing is tough because the bodice is snug, but the top was very lose. It is hard to wear a bra because of the open back. I am very large-chested and I ended up going with my smaller size so I could forgo a bra (something I NEVER do). It worked out, but I was obviously self-conscious all night. I have since lost over lbs and am renting this dress again in another color a few sizes smaller. It really is quite beautiful!

I felt great in the dress and it made the night even more spectacular than I could imagine.
Overall ran a little small .The 16 (which is larger than I usually wear) was just a little too tight, so I wore the 18. It was super comfortable but it was a little large in the shoulder/chest area. I absolutely loved the dress though and got amazing compliments all night.

Gorgeous Neckline!
Overall, a beautiful dress! Very pretty color and beautiful neckline. However, the fit of the neck was a bit loose on me - maybe because I'm not too busty or wide up top. If I were more industrious, I might have pinned it up a bit to be smaller. I'm in that hard place between a 14 and 16, but this 16 fit well - I don't wear my clothes very fitted, so I liked the way this fell on me.

Didn't get to wear this beautiful dress. It did not fit in the bust area. It is truly a beautiful dress but I was disappointed with the measurements. I have large hips and it never happens that a dress large enough for my hips has a smaller bust.

Gorgeous dress in theory
I didn't get to wear this dress because of the fit. I read reviews and saw others said it ran small and to order up . I'm normally a 16 but since I had my baby a few months ago I have been a size 18. So I ordered a 20 and 22 knowing it would run small ... The 20 was still too tight to zip so I tried the 22... I was able to fit into it but the fit was terrible really from fitting across my middle hips and butt that wasn't very flattering and then I could not wear a bra with the dress because you could see it in the back with the backless feature which is actually gorgeous . I tried a low back bra but you could still see the straps on the sides . So I tried without a bra but although the bottom was very from fitting the top was not and offered no support ( probably because it was a size 22) and it just didn't work for my body . Maybe when I lose the baby weight I would try again cuz the dress was gorgeous in theory just not fitting my post baby body well at all :( ... Deep navy color gorgeous and very well made lace . I wish I could have worn it !!

This was the perfect dress, color was great & I got so many compliments!
The dress ran true-to-size if you like a more snug fit, a little on the smaller side if you like it a bit looser. I wore it without a bra and it just worked (I'm a B/C cup) but for bustier women, that probably will not work. I'm 5'5 and I was a little worried about the length, but it fell right above the knees, which was great. Fabric was nice and didn't catch on things, even though it was lace. All in all, a pretty comfy dress for a formal event.

Gorgeous dress
I typically wear a 14 or 16, but being burned by online purchases before, I ordered both the 18 and the 20 to be safe. The 18 was a little tight which surprised me, because I never wear that size. I would have worn the 18 but the hook was stretched out and it was missing the clasp, so I couldn't get the zipper to stay up. So I had to wear the 20, which was way too big. It's amazing, though, how drastic a difference one size was. So although I felt the dress was too big and too long, I still wore it and got many compliments.

Beautiful dress, but couldn't wear it.
Loved the opening to the back of this dress, however, my back didn't. The dress actually made me look slimmer in the front, but as I feared, my back fat became something I couldn't get past. So I never ended up wearing it.

I got so much compliments when I wore this dress. They could not believe its a rental!
I'm a pear and I wear a 16W. Since the reviews mentioned that the dress runs small, I ordered an 18 as a back up size. The 18 was very loose around the neckline. I needed a fashion tape to make it wearable. Luckily I fit the 16. It was a little snug around the hip area but after I squeezed into my shapewear it fitted me well. It did not look tacky and hugged my figure very well. I completed the look with gold jewelry renting Star Light Star Bright necklace and matching bracelet by Nicole Miller. My aunts and cousins could not believe my transformation. They said I looked very elegant. I knocked off one star because the neckline would not stay flat on my neck area. It would roll down. I'm not sure if this is because of overuse. It also arrived on time. I had it sent to our beach house in Hawaii where the wedding was to take place. And it arrived on the day I had requested. I am pleased with the RTR and will definitely rent again.

Love this dress ... But....
I rented a 16 & 18. I have a large bust -36F. Dress ran small on the bust in a 16 and swimming on me in an 18- love the style and fit perfectly at the hips- but unfortunately no good for me.

I loved this dress! It was a little snug but with some spanx it ended up being perfect. I took the advice of others and wore a sticky cup bra and it, along with the dress' structure, gave me the support I needed. I got so many compliments on the dress and I wish I could have kept it!

Love the detail on the back!
I usually wear a 14W/16W but sized up on this one. There's boning like a corset in it so that may be why I needed to size up. You can't wear a regular bra. I wore a strapless bra with an elastic wrap around that pulls it down in the back. It wasn't very comfortable. If I wore this again I would try a different kind of backless bra. The top was a little large and didn't lay right so I had to keep fixing it. I got a lot of compliments on it though and it was flattering.
